A Septuagenarian's Rapid Recovery After a Car Accident
(Minghui.org) I am 79 years old and have practiced Falun Dafa for more than ten years. Following the principles of Dafa and doing the exercises cured all the diseases I had, such as frozen shoulder and rheumatism.
I was hit by a speeding truck while crossing the road in January 2015. When my family took me to the hospital, my mouth, face, and head were covered in blood. Some of my teeth had been knocked out, my face was bruised and swollen, and I couldn't open my mouth. My body felt cold all over, except for a little warmth in my heart.
I was unconscious from 2 p.m. until 5 a.m. the following day. When I finally awoke, the smallest movement caused great pain.
At that moment, I saw the image of Master Li Hongzhi, the founder of Falun Dafa, sitting in front of me. I felt my body starting to warm up. I knew that Master was adjusting my body. But when I looked for him, Master was gone. Then, I saw a shiny, round Falun rotating in front of me. Although there was still a little pain, I felt a lot better than I had previously.
As a practitioner, I should put myself in others’ shoes. To reduce the burden on the driver who hit me, I checked out from the hospital as soon as I could get out of bed—after about 20 days.
Although I live alone, I refused to let the driver hire someone to take care of me. He gave me 2,000 yuan to cover medical expenses. I paid the rest of the costs myself.
When I got home, my eyes were still bruised and swollen, and I couldn’t see clearly. The doctor recommended surgery to remove hematomas (swellings from clotted blood) in my eyes. With encouragement from fellow practitioners, I kept my faith in Dafa and Master. I believed that Master would take care of me.
When I was able to join group study and tried to read Zhuan Falun, I could not see the Chinese characters clearly in the beginning. But then, a miracle happened. When I looked at the page again, the characters became bigger and clearer. I even could read characters I previously hadn't known.
I wouldn't have survived to this day without Dafa.
I cannot thank Master and Dafa enough. I will try to do better and be more diligent in my cultivation.
