Improvement on My Cultivation Path Through Karma Elimination
(Minghui.org) I suffered three sickness karma elimination situations between mid-2015 and August 2016. I learned that as long as one abides by the Falun Gong principles, one will eventually pass any cultivation test.
The sickness karma first affected my left leg, and it was very painful when I walked. My friend suggested that I had a stroke. I thought that I was a cultivator and had to do the three things. Thus, such a thought should not ever enter my mind. Nothing could interfere with me and stop me from completing my tasks. I kept on doing all that I should and sent forth righteous thoughts whenever I had time. Two weeks later, I recovered completely.
Shortly after the sickness karma affected my right leg. The pain was far worse than during the first time. I believed it to be elimination of karma from past lives. However, there were also attachments that I needed to eliminate. Nevertheless, nothing stopped me from clarifying the truth about Falun Gong.
Whenever I went out with my wife to talk to people about Falun Gong my pain would intensify. But, I kept on walking and moving, and gradually the pain would subside.
When looking within, I realized that the sickness karma was somehow associated with my attachment to lust. I was asked out by two different woman at different times. Of course I refused. Master's Fa told us that nothing happens by chance. I began to search within and I knew it was time to completely eliminate my attachment to lust. When I elevated on the basis of the Fa, Master cleansed my body and I was no longer in pain.
The sickness karma then affected my right leg. It felt as if my right sciatic nerve was shortened. I could only flex my leg, and if I tried to extend it or lay down, it would cause excruciating pain. Yet, I could still go out and clarify the facts about the persecution.
I was puzzled, and could not figure out why I was interfered with like this. I studied the Fa, exercised daily, and carried out the three things everyday.
When I read Master's Fa, I gained an understanding of my situation:
“Anyway, I just want to tell you that, as Dafa disciples, you should know how enormous your responsibility is, and this is not a child’s game. This undertaking has already come to the last stage, and I am extremely worried, yet you still do not treat it seriously. In the end, however, it will be too late even if you cry.” (“Fa Teaching at the 2016 New York Fa Conference”)
Master reminded me that I had lost my sense of urgency, I again needed the enthusiasm I had when I stepped on my cultivation path. I had been slacking off a bit since we no longer needed to distribute Shen Yun DVDs. How could I slack off on my cultivation path? Once I realized my problem, the sickness karma disappeared and I had recovered.
Lesson Well Taught
When it comes to cultivation I learned a great deal because of my sickness karma elimination. Most importantly, Master's teaching guided me throughout my tribulation.
“I would say that the physical pains are the easiest thing to endure, as they can be overcome by biting the teeth tightly.” (Zhuan Falun)
“ Mentally overcoming tribulations is the key to truly improving one’s level.”(Zhuan Falun)
When I felt that I could no longer handle the pain, I recited Master's Fa:
“When it’s difficult to endure, you can endure it. When it’s impossible to do, you can do it.” (Zhuan Falun)
I understood that this was the process I had to go through. When my xinxing elevated, I was free of any sickness karma.
Indeed, after the karma elimination, my legs have become so much more flexible and I no longer need to tie them up to sit in the full Lotus position. My ability to reach tranquility is also improving.
