My Faith Never Wavered After a Car Crash
(Minghui.org) I started practicing Falun Dafa on April 13, 1997. Dafa has benefited my mind and body tremendously. Even during times of immense hardship, I’ve been able to maintain a kind and unmovable heart because of the practice.
For example, I was returning home on my bike in 2014. A car sped by and collided with me at the corner. My head bounced off the windshield, and I flew into the air and landed on the street. My bike landed over 30 feet away.
The windshield broke but my head was intact. I did not feel any pain, although my eyes became puffy and red later. I knew Master Li Hongzhi (the founder of Falun Dafa) was protecting me and nothing bad would happen, because I was a Dafa practitioner.
The driver immediately avoided responsibility and scolded me. "Hey, what's wrong with you?” he said. “You weren’t watching where you were riding! How could you ride like that?"
"I'm okay. I won't ask you for any money," I said.
"You are okay, but my windshield is broken. You must pay me!"
The bystanders felt it was unfair. Someone called the police. My husband, relatives, and the police arrived shortly. My family dragged me to the hospital to get checked out.
“I'm okay,” I told the doctor. “I was hit by a car but there is no need to prescribe me anything. I do not need medicine.”
Puzzled, the doctor looked at me. “I didn't know there were still such kind people around,” he said. “They are hard to find nowadays."
"I am a Falun Gong practitioner,” I said. “My Master taught me to be considerate of others.”
I persuaded my family to let me go home. I increased my meditation time and studied the Fa constantly, corrected my shortcomings, improved myself, and found the reason for me ending up in harm’s way. A few days later, the puffiness around my eyes and legs disappeared. I completely recovered.
At the scene of the accident, I told my husband that we must not take any money from the driver. The driver was moved and pressured my husband to take 1,800 yuan. My husband gave it to me at home. I did not spend it. I gave it to the materials production site to make Dafa truth-clarification materials.
My husband and children have benefited from Dafa through the years. In July 2007, my husband suffered a stroke and went into a coma. I did not panic. I constantly recited, "Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good" in his ear every day. Half a year later, he completely recovered. It has now been over 10 years now and he is still fine.
At that time our financial situation was very tight. Our son was in high school and our twin girls were in junior high. I constantly reminded myself that, as a Falun Dafa practitioner, I could not take pity on myself or view my life as miserable.
With my righteous faith in Master and Dafa, I survived all the hardships thrown my way. My son was later admitted to a good college, and my daughters went on to high school.
All my children now have good jobs and are married. They’ve said things like, "Our family is great because Mother practices Falun Dafa. Everything is smooth sailing!"
“Haven’t I said that with one person practicing, the whole family benefits?” (Teaching the Fa at the Fa Conference in Australia)
