Whatever We Encounter in Cultivation are Good Things
(Minghui.org) In early April 2017, a former classmate asked me to join her at her hotel. I wanted to take the opportunity to tell her the facts about Falun Gong. I had tried to do this about seven years prior, but I was experiencing sickness tribulations at the time and was not in a good state. She did not accept what I told her. Instead, she advised me to take some health supplements and use facial makeup to look younger. I was at a loss as to what to say.
I planned what I wanted to say to her this time. However, she told me not to mention anything about Falun Gong as soon as she saw me. I knew that since all beings are here for Dafa, that this thought was not from her true self. I decided not to give up on saving her. So I sent forth righteous thoughts to eliminate any interference that would prevent her from learning the truth.
I suddenly had a salty taste in my mouth. I spit out a little bit and saw that it was blood. It turned out that my gum was bleeding. I didn't know what to do. I did not want my classmate see this, so I swallowed the blood. The bleeding became more and more serious, and I could not swallow it. She was frightened when she saw the blood and asked me why I was bleeding. I told her that it was not necessarily a bad thing for a practitioner because our bodies were being purified constantly, and that I would be fine.
She gradually calmed down and went back to sleep. I kept spitting out blood from 9:00 p.m. to midnight. The bleeding stopped before the time to send forth righteous thoughts.
I got up at 3:00 a.m. to do the standing exercises. I felt dizzy when I did the second exercise. A thought came to my mind that maybe it was because my gum had bled too much. I realized that this was not right and told myself it was an illusion. It must be interference from the old forces.
I suddenly felt very weak and almost fell to the ground. I went to the bathroom and threw up. I had a cold sweat and felt very uncomfortable. I sent forth righteous thoughts and denied the arrangements of the old forces, and also asked Master for help. The symptoms gradually disappeared.
The next day, my classmate said that I looked very young and energetic. She also said that Falun Gong must have physical benefits. I clarified the truth to her, and she agreed to withdraw from Chinese Communist Party and its affiliated organizations.
All the good and bad things have become good things, just as Master said,
“When you are overcoming a real hardship or tribulation, you try it. When it is difficult to endure, try to endure it. When it looks impossible and is said to be impossible, give it a try and see if it is possible. If you can actually do it, you will indeed find, “After passing the shady willow trees, there will be bright flowers and another village ahead!”” (Zhuan Falun)
Thank you Master for your blessing. I will study the Fa well, be more diligent, and help save more people.
