“Now We Know Falun Dafa is Good”
(Minghui.org) I rode my bike to look for a job one hot summer day. After inquiring at several places, I still did not have a job, and was tired and sweaty from pedaling in the heat.
I was trying to ride in the shade of some trees on my way home when I saw something shiny in a puddle of water on the road. Apparently, someone had dumped their laundry water after having finished washing their clothes. I was curious about the glimmer in the puddle, so I stopped to see what it was.
Lost and Found
It was a gold ring. I figured it must belong to whoever dumped the water, so I picked it up and waited for the person who lost it to come looking for it. Nobody came.
It was a very hot day, and I was exhausted from my job hunt, so I went home to cool off and have something to eat. Once home, I took another look at the ring. I figured that the person who lost it must be anxious about it, so I felt that I should go back. Once the weather cooled down outside, I took the ring back to where I found it to try to find the owner. Still nobody.
I walked up to the nearest cottage where an older lady was cooling off after the heat of the day. There was a ring on her hand, so I figured the one I had found was not hers. I was about to leave when she asked, “Who are you looking for?”
“Is there someone in your house who washed clothes today?” I asked. She answered yes. Just then a young couple came out of the house. I asked the woman if she had lost anything. She raised her hand and said, “My ring.”
I smiled as I took her ring out of my pocket and held it up. She was delighted! The couple tried to give me a cash reward, but I told them it wasn’t necessary. I said, “I practice Falun Dafa and won’t take any money from you. Our Master taught us to always think of others and follow Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.” They just stared at me. Then the husband said, “Now we know for sure that Falun Dafa is good!”
A Car Accident
A few years ago I went out to shop for our Chinese New Year celebration. As I was crossing the road on my way home, a car sped by and ran over my right foot. I fell down.
By the time I sat up, there was a lady and an elderly woman standing over me. The lady asked, “Are you okay? Were you hit?”
I was mad and said, “What do you think?” As soon as I said that, I remembered, “I am a practitioner,” and thought about the situation. Master said,
The driver indeed drove the car too fast, but how could he possibly hit someone on purpose?” (Zhuan Falun)
I then said, “Im fine.”
The driver came over. He was so scared that his face was pale. “Are you alright? I’ll take you to the hospital.”
I replied, “I am a Falun Dafa practitioner! Don’t worry, I know you didn’t mean to run over my foot. I’ll be fine. You can go now.”
The driver couldn’t believe it. I then said, “I practice Falun Dafa. Falun Dafa practitioners are good people. We always think of the needs of others before our own.”
He could see that my foot was starting to hurt and offered to drive me home. I said, “My family doesn’t practice Falun Dafa. If they find out that you ran over my foot, they wont let you go.”
“I have been fooled by the media all these years,” he said gratefully. “Now I know first hand what a real Falun Dafa practitioner is like.” He thanked me and left.
The pain became so severe that I couldn’t walk and had to take a taxi home. When I arrived at my house, I passed out from the pain. My son helped me in. I laid down and fell asleep. When I woke up, I found that my foot had swelled up like a steamed bun. I did the exercises and studied the Fa every day despite the severe pain. Within a month, my foot was back to normal.
