Maintain Righteous Thoughts and Leave No Chance for the Evil to Interfere
(Minghui.org) I inadvertently swallowed an inch-long jujube fruit pit three days before the Chinese New Year. It got stuck in my esophagus, and it hurt. I thought, “I should be fine.”
However, it hurt even more when I tried to swallow something else. I shouted out, “Master, please save me!” The pain immediately disappeared and I was able to eat. I tearfully and sincerely thanked Master Li.
While my husband and I were doing the second exercise two days later, I felt something running out of my right nostril. I cleaned it with a tissue and continued doing the exercise. After I finished, I noticed that it was blood, but I was not worried.
On Chinese New Year’s eve, my right nostril started to bleed again and two ¾-inch-long things as wide as chopsticks with threads in them came out of my nostril. I realized that Master was purifying my body.
A fellow practitioner came to visit me on the Chinese New Year. She asked me if I felt okay. I answered, “It is a good thing. Master has purified my body again. I now feel more relaxed and clear-headed. I am really grateful for Master’s help!”
Other guests came to visit us for the Chinese New Year, and I told them about my experience with the jujube pit.
My niece said, “Auntie, that was very dangerous. You might have needed to have it surgically removed. You should take it seriously.”
I smiled and replied, “Master Li protects me. It truly was a miracle, I personally experienced it. You must believe it!”
I asked them to sincerely recite, “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” and said that they would be blessed if they often did. I then gave them each a Dafa keepsake, which they seemed pleased to have.
Another Major Incident Reveals Two Attachments
Between the second and fourth day after the Chinese New Year, I was vomiting blood. My daughter (a practitioner) was worried and kept asking, “What is happening? What is happening?”
I said, “Nothing. My body is discharging dirty things.” My husband (a practitioner) said to her, “Let’s send forth righteous thoughts to help your mother.”
While they were sending forth righteous thoughts, I looked inside myself for reasons why this could be happening. I thought that I must have loopholes that the evil was taking advantage of to interfere with me. Looking within, I found two attachments.
One was that I spent a lot of time cleaning the house before the Chinese New Year; that is, I was attached to this ordinary custom. Although it did not interfere with my Fa study and doing the exercises, it did interfere with my going out to tell people about Falun Dafa and the persecution. I should have considered doing the three things as my first priority.
The second attachment I found was a thought that suddenly crossed my mind at the beginning of 2019. I realized that I was 76 years old and that both my father and sister had died at the age of 76.
I started cultivating Dafa in 1998 and understood that Dafa had given me a new life, that Master had arranged my cultivation path. The meaning of my life then became to assist Master in Fa-rectification, to save sentient beings and fulfill my mission and vows, and to return to my true home following Master.
I didn't pay much attention to that thought and was not alert when I compared myself to non-practitioners, nor why I did that. The thought slipped away, and I didn't realize it wasn't righteous and that I should have rejected it.
The evil took advantage of my attachments and my sentiment toward my departed relatives; the evil tried to drag me down and destroy me.
Maintaining Righteous Thoughts, I Passed the Tribulation
Vomiting blood after the Chinese New Year awakened me. In my mind, I said to the evil, “I am a Dafa practitioner and I belong to Dafa. I only follow Master’s teachings and arrangements. You have no power over me.” I then asked Master to strengthen me.
I went to the park to clarify the truth to people about Falun Dafa on the fourth day after the Chinese New Year. It was cold, and I vomited blood on the way, but I was not afraid. I kept saying aloud as I walked, “Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good! Master, please save me!” I started vomiting less.
I met only one woman in the park. I told her about the evil nature of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), how Dafa has spread throughout the whole world, about the rock with the characters “Chinese Communist Party perishes” on it, and about quitting the CCP and its affiliated organizations to ensure a safe future. She accepted all of this and agreed to quit the CCP and its organizations.
On the way home, I stopped vomiting blood completely.
There are no words to express my gratitude for Master’s salvation. I will diligently cultivate and do the three things well and return to my real home following Master.
I wanted to share my experiences so that that fellow practitioners can learn from them. Let us base every one of our thoughts on the Fa, walk our cultivation paths well, and not give the evil any chance to persecute us.
