(Minghui.org) A practitioner in his 50s who lives in my county suddenly became severely ill and was taken to a hospital by ambulance in the middle of the night. He was diagnosed with brain stem throat compression. He could not drink at all and had high blood pressure.

Doctor Finds No Cure

I heard the news and rushed to the hospital the next morning. The practitioner’s family members were all supportive of his practicing Falun Dafa. The practitioner had just woken up from a coma, and his children let me speak to him.

“Will this hospital be able to heal your aliment?” I asked him.

“No. The doctor told me that even if I stayed here for a month, all they could do is to observe me for other illnesses. They cannot fix my throat problem, nor can other hospitals. The doctor said I’d better go home and wait for death.”

His wife was beside him and kept shouting, “Let’s go home!”

The practitioner decided to check out of the hospital that afternoon. He sat up and sent righteous thoughts with me for over 40 minutes. Prior to my arrival, he had not been able to even sit up by himself.

He left the hospital and went home. He is the only Falun Gong practitioner in his village; my home is about six miles away from his.

Life-and-Death Tribulation

I went to his home every day and studied the Fa and sent righteous thoughts with him for five consecutive days. He had a lot of pain and could not eat. His son said that he became worse each time after I left.

The practitioner said, “I don't know how to cultivate to a high level. I did not completely believe in Master and the Fa during critical moments. I just know Dafa is good, and I did my best to behave according to Dafa principles.”

My observation during those days was that he was not treating himself as a true Dafa practitioner.

“You haven't eaten or drunken anything in six days,” I said. “You have to firmly believe in Master and the Fa even if you only have one breath left. You should remind yourself that Master is in charge of everything related to you. You have to validate Dafa and save sentient beings. You can be like what Master Li described in Zhuan Falun.”

Master told us:

“When it’s hard to endure, try to endure it. When it seems impossible to do, or just hard to do, give it a try and see just what you can do. And when you can really do it, just like that worn and weary traveler, you’ll see, "the shade of willows, the blooms of flowers, a place to rest my head"!” (Zhuan Falun )

I used Fa principles to encourage him, but fear arose in my mind. I worried that if he could not pass this test, his second eldest sister and her husband, who were not familiar with Falun Gong, would make trouble for me.

The practitioner confirmed my fear: “My family members would make trouble for you if I died.”

The Test of Truly Believing in Master and Eliminating Notions

I went home in evening and thought, “I sent righteous thoughts every day to bolster my belief in Master and the Fa to one hundred percent, but I still worried a lot about bad things that could happen. Having these thoughts meant that I had not completely believed in Master and the Fa. Only righteous thoughts matter, not human notions. There is no ‘what if.’ Master is in charge of everything.”

I talked to Master in my mind: “Master will decide this matter. I do not acknowledge the old forces. That practitioner has to be able to eat food tomorrow morning. He has to clarify the truth about Falun Dafa and save sentient beings.” I also realized that I should not look for that practitioner’s shortcomings.

As soon as I arrived at his home the next day, the practitioner told me that he had already eaten breakfast. He said that he got better after he thought, “Even if I'm going to die, I'll remember and speak out that my Master decides my fate. I have to validate the Fa and save others.”

He fully recovered. Our great and compassionate Master had dissolved the evil for us.

Telling People About Dafa at the Hospital

On the seventh day after he left the hospital, we asked his son to drive us back there so that we could give out Falun Dafa informational materials.

The doctor who had taken care of the practitioner was in the office. He told me that the only medical procedure they could have tried would have been to open a hole in his throat and feed him through a tube.

The practitioner told him and other doctors that he could now eat normally and that it was Falun Dafa that had healed his ailment. He asked them to remember, “Falun Dafa is good” and “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.”

The practitioner is now catching up with doing the three things. The people throughout his village now know about his miraculous recovery and that Dafa saved him.
