Amazing Things Happen When My Heart is on the Fa
(Minghui.org) I'm a 53-year-old retired factory worker. I started practicing Falun Dafa in 1996. For years, my nickname was “medicine basket.” I was chronically ill, no matter what Western treatments or Chinese medicines I took. I tried everything, but nothing helped. I was barely 30 years old but I looked like a 60-year old. Every day was a struggle to survive.
Just when everything seemed hopeless, I found Falun Dafa! 1996 was an unforgettable year. A Falun Dafa practitioner invited me to her home to watch the recordings of Master Li's (Falun Dafa's founder) lectures. My older sister had to come with me because I could barely walk. Even though it was warm in her home, I felt really cold; my legs felt like ice cubes. I had to cover my knees with my jacket, but it did not stop the cold which seemed to emit from my body.
I was amazed by the positive changes I experienced as I watched the lectures and then took up the practice of Falun Dafa. I felt like I was in my twenties! It felt so wonderful to be healthy! I was so emotional, no words could express my gratitude towards Master.
I Finally Understood What It Means to Be a Good Person
One day when I went to the market to buy vegetables, I was hit from behind by a car. I was just about to yell at the driver when I remembered that I'm a Dafa practitioner. Thinking about what Master taught about placing others first, I told the driver, “You're lucky it was me that you hit. I practice Falun Dafa and I will not sue you. Please remember these words: Falun Dafa is good; Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance are good.”
The driver said, “Don't you want to go to the hospital and get checked?” I replied, “There's no need.” I told him about the huge numbers of Chinese quitting the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), and suggested that he also quit.
He thanked me and said, “I'm a Party member. Can you help me withdraw from the CCP?” I suggested that he read more about Falun Dafa and the persecution in order to have a good understanding of the issues. He offered to fix one of my shoes which had been damaged in the accident. I thanked him and said it was no problem.
I walked home with one bare foot. It was not painful until I went to work that afternoon. By that time, my foot was so swollen that I could not put on my shoe. I could not stand and it became so excruciating that I had to call the section head to ask for the night off.
When two of my colleagues came to see me, they were shocked when they saw my foot. I told them what happened. They urged me to go to the hospital to see if there were any fractures. I said no and that I would go to work the next day.
Our factory had two 12-hour shifts. Since I worked on the assembly line I had to stand. I put on a shoe that was bigger than my foot, and went to work the next day. I stood for the entire 12 hours and did not feel any pain and my leg did not swell. I knew Master helped me.
My co-workers were very impressed and said that Falun Dafa is extraordinary. I told them about Falun Dafa, how it's being persecuted, and helped them quit the CCP. One of them asked me to help her in-laws as well. I agreed, but told her that she must get their consent.
Having witnessed how I was able to return to work, my section head asked me to help him quit the CCP. One of my colleagues said, “Falun Dafa is so great. Can I donate 10 yuan to help?” I told her that we don't accept donations and that as long as she believes in the goodness of Falun Dafa, she would have a great future. Another colleague sought me out and asked me to help him quit the CCP.
Master Is Right Beside Me
One day after I returned home, I prepared some hot water using an old thermos. When I tried to pour the boiling water into a new thermos, the handle of the old one broke. Scalding hot water and broken thermos pieces poured out all over my feet. I dropped to the floor.
My son helped me get up and took me to the washroom. My feet were covered with pieces of the broken thermos. I thought: The old forces are trying to stop me from talking to people about Falun Dafa; they are trying to persecute me. I refused to let it happen.
When my husband came home he asked if I was okay. I reassured him that I was fine. That afternoon, I went to Fa study. When I told the others what happened they said I would have been severely burned if I were a non-practitioner. However, because I didn't have any blisters or other injuries, my husband did not believe the accident had happened. He said, “How come you don't even have a cut or blister?” I replied, “Falun Dafa is amazing. Do you really need to see a blister before you believe me?” That evening, a blister the size of my thumb appeared and I called him over to see. He marveled at my experience.
Amazing Things Happen When My Heart is on the Fa
One day when I was out talking to people, I noticed a man trying to get his motorized tricycle to move. He sweated as he repeatedly tried to start the motor. He looked as if he was at his wit's end and was exhausted.
I wanted to talk to him about the persecution, but he looked really frustrated and I didn't think that he would listen. So I walked over and placed my hands on the handles of his bike and gave it a push. As I pushed, I asked for Master to help me so that I could talk to him. As soon as I had this thought, the motor suddenly started. He was very happy. He wanted to shake my hand, but they were dirty. So he kept saying, “Thank you! Thank you, Big Sister! You seem to have some mechanical skills!”
I replied, “I don't know anything about machines. I practice Falun Dafa and I asked my Master for his assistance on your behalf. Do not thank me. Please thank my Master.”
I remembered Master's poem,
I said to him, “No matter what situation you find yourself in, just remember, 'Falun Dafa is good; Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance are good'. You will be fine.” He listened attentively as I told him about the persecution, and he also quit the CCP.
