How I Recovered from Facial Paralysis
(Minghui.org) Recently I was hit by facial paralysis. After looking within, I found my shortcomings and was able to recover in two weeks.
It started on September 20. My whole face sagged to the left. I could no longer control my right eye. I could not chew or gargle with the right side of my mouth.
Things got worse the next day. My children tried to make doctor appointments for me.
I started to worry: “What will people think of me when I go to the office tomorrow?”
I forgot that I was a practitioner and did not have to take medicine. I took some, but there was no improvement.
I then started to look within. Actually I didn't have to look hard. The answer was right there: The first tribulation that a practitioner must pass is lust. I hadn't passed that test yet. I often surfed the web to look for those things.
Master told us about the Internet in “Fa Teaching at the 2016 New York Fa Conference:”
“This society is already a mess, and on the Internet all bad things are stirred in, just like demons, circulating. Whatever goes in is stirred in there or mixed in there, disrupting society, the human mind, and morality, and changing people's living state—the good and the bad are all jumbled together.”
But I kept going to the Internet. When I read and saw bad stuff on the Internet, the bad things and the stuff behind them kept damaging my eye and face.
I had caused this facial paralysis!
I said in my heart, “Master, I was wrong. I will let go of this attachment!”
I threw the drugs away. From then on, I took sending forth righteous thoughts, doing the exercises, and studying the Fa seriously. And I stopped looking at bad stuff on the Internet.
Two weeks later, I could eat normally again. I could control my right eye and move the right side of my right face. I could speak normally, too.
I was really grateful for the power of Falun Dafa!
