I Survived a Serious Car Accident Thanks to Master’s Protection
(Minghui.org) I'm 77 years old, and started practicing Falun Dafa on March 24, 1997. Throughout the past 20 years, I've been through a lot, but thanks to Master's compassionate protection I've managed to walk steadily on my cultivation path.
It was drizzling on the morning of April 2, 2018, with not many people around. I went out to put up posters about Falun Dafa, and brought 40 posters with me.
After I finished one side of the road and was about to cross to the other, a large white car came by. The driver stopped and let me cross. Just as I walking to the other side another car came by and hit me. My first thought was, “I'm all right. I am a Dafa practitioner.”
I tried to stand up, but couldn’t. I didn’t feel any pain as the driver helped me up.
My right leg had twisted, and I wasn't able to stand. The driver was worried about me, and asked what he should do. He was young, and frightened.
“Don’t be afraid,” I said. “I won’t ask a penny from you or take advantage of this incident. I'm a Falun Dafa practitioner. Our Master told us to be considerate of others, and to follow the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. Please remember that Falun Dafa is good and Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.”
“Yes, I will remember it,” he said, as he relaxed a little.
“Young man, you know that I wouldn't let you go if I wasn’t a Falun Dafa practitioner.”
“I know! I know it!” he replied.
I told him to go on about his business. He sincerely thanked me.
When I asked a pedicab driver to take me home, he asked why I didn’t tell the driver to take me to the hospital for a check up.
“I'm all right.” I replied. “I practice Falun Dafa and our Master protects us. I will recover soon. The driver would have to spend a lot of money if I went to the hospital.” He agreed. I told him more about Falun Dafa, as he listened attentively.
He took me to the gate of my apartment building, and made sure that I was able to open the door.
“You're very kind,” I said. “Please remember Falun Dafa is good and Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good. Have you withdrawn from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP)?”
“From your behavior, I believe Falun Dafa is good. I will remember it.” He also said that he hadn't joined any of the CCP's organizations.
I lived on the 3rd floor. I asked Master to strengthen me, and went upstairs easily with no pain in my legs. But as soon as I opened my door, my whole body was in pain. I couldn't move my right leg or my waist. I asked my husband to take off my shoes, and he helped me to the bed.
Some practitioners came by that afternoon, and sent righteous thoughts for me. My right leg was swollen, and I was cold and trembling.
I was in more pain at night. I could only sleep on my back, and couldn’t turn over.
“We have said that Dafa is boundless, and it is completely up to your heart to practice cultivation. The master takes you through the entrance, and it is up to you, yourself to practice cultivation. It all depends upon how you, yourself practice cultivation. Whether you can practice cultivation all depends upon whether you can endure, sacrifice, and suffer. If you can commit your mind, no difficulties can stop you. I would say that there is not a problem.” (Lecture Four, Zhuan Falun)
My husband was extremely worried the next morning when he saw that my leg had become black. My daughter-in-law told me to go to the hospital. I reminded her that I recovered last time without seeing any doctors. I said, “Master is better than any doctor. If you don’t believe me, let’s wait and see.”
But I asked my daughter-in-law not to tell my son until I had recovered completely.
Master Is Compassionate and Dafa Is Amazing
I said to my leg, “We are one body. You must assimilate to the Fa and follow Master. I must walk in three days.”
I tried walking, and hobbled to the balcony holding the wall, and came back to my bedroom with the support of a small stool. My husband was so surprised. I told him that Master was looking after me.
On the 4th day, my husband was amazed to see my feet looking normal. He said, “Master Li is great! Falun Dafa is amazing! You’d better practice more diligently!”
I started to practice the exercises on the 5th day. I sat on the edge of my bed when practicing the 4th exercise, as I couldn't bend my right knee. I did the five sets of exercises every day.
As I was getting changed one time, something scratched against my hand. I looked down and saw two bones sticking out of the right side of my knee. I told them, “Please return to your normal place, and don’t interfere with me.” They went back to the places where they should be.
On the 10th day I could walk downstairs slowly by holding the railings. Though I still couldn't bend my knee, I could walk much better. I went to the nearby residential area to distribute Falun Dafa materials and put up posters.
My leg became more swollen and was very painful after I came back. I had difficulty standing up or sitting down.
I wasn't able to sit in the lotus position while doing the sitting meditation. It caused excruciating pain when I tried bending my leg. Why was it so difficult?
“Actually, I think it depends on the person as to whether it is difficult or not. For an everyday person who does not want to practice cultivation, he will find cultivation practice simply too difficult, inconceivable, or impossible. As an everyday person, he does not want to practice cultivation and will find it very difficult.” (Lecture Nine, Zhuan Falun)
I felt that Master was talking to me. Should I be afraid of hardship? I should have the courage to face it because Master and the Fa were with me.
I then painfully continued to cross my legs, as tears and sweat streamed down my face.
I managed to sit in the full lotus position! And now I am able to sit with both legs crossed without any problem.
A month later I went out to the shopping centers to clarify the truth to people. I managed to help several people quit the CCP every day.
I have completely recovered, and my daughter-in-law witnessed the whole process. She has started to read Zhuan Falun and stopped spending so much time on her mobile phone. I'm very happy for her.
My story spread throughout the neighborhood. A man in his forties who lived on the fourth floor of my building had a car accident and broke his leg. He had surgery to put steel plates inside his leg, and had to use crutches.
One neighbor commented, “Look at that young fellow. He went to the hospital and now he has to use crutches. Now this old lady; she's in her seventies. She broke her leg, and didn’t go to hospital. She recovered, and doesn’t need crutches.”
Another neighbor said, “She practices Falun Dafa and doesn’t need medical treatment.”
“You're correct,” I replied. “Falun Dafa not only helped my leg, it's also helped many people who suffered from terminal illnesses.”
I talked to my friends and neighbors about Dafa. They said that they believed Dafa is good, but didn’t dare to practice through fear of being persecuted. I told them to remember “Falun Dafa is good and Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good,” and not to do anything against Falun Dafa.
Thank you Master for giving me a new lease on life!
