“Illness” Seen in Two Practitioners
(Minghui.org) The surgical director for a large hospital practices Falun Gong. One day, he met with a patient who had varicose veins and was seeking surgery.
After talking with the patient, the surgeon realized that the man was a Falun Gong practitioner. He shared his understanding of illness karma and said, “We are Falun Gong practitioners. Master has cleansed our bodies. We don't have illnesses. We should not mistake physical discomfort as illness because it is dissolving karma, and it is a good thing.” The practitioner seeking treatment agreed and returned home.
The man returned two months later and told the surgeon that his condition had become worse and he felt his veins would burst. He asked for surgery. The surgeon thought that the practitioner took himself to be an everyday person and so he agreed to do his duty as a doctor.
When the surgeon attempted to cut a vein with a scalpel, it was just like trying to cut an iron wire. He was shocked! He finally had to use scissors to complete the surgery. He had never encountered this situation before.
He felt in his heart as if he had done something wrong, and he was upset. He thought, “This practitioner's body had changed to that degree, but I cut the vein out.” He complained in his mind that the practitioner had poor enlightenment quality. He felt bad for quite a while afterwards.
Another time, the director performed surgery on a patient to remove a tumor. He found that the tumor was tightly wrapped in a thick membrane and that there was no indication that it had spread to nearby tissues. He was puzzled, as this was rare for such a large tumor.
When he visited the patient the next day, he saw a Falun badge on the man's shirt. He asked, “Do you practice Falun Gong?” The patient said, “Yes.” The surgeon thought, “Then why did you have surgery? Master is looking after you, but you have not enlightened. It is a pity!”
A year later, this patient returned. The tumor had returned, was spreading, and was found to be malignant.
These two examples show that Master has cleansed our bodies. Our bodies are being evolved as we cultivate. Any physical discomfort we experience is a test and can help us improve. As long as we believe in Master and Dafa and look inwards, there is no tribulation that we cannot overcome.
