Overcoming Life-and-Death Trials and Helping Others
(Minghui.org) After failing to get my chronic illnesses cured in hospitals, I gave Falun Dafa a try in 1996. I practiced the exercises for just over a month and noticed that my illnesses had disappeared. My face went from being dark yellow to a healthy pink. People who witnessed my changes commented on how miraculous Falun Dafa is.
Master Protects Me
When I was 65 years old, I woke up one night and my body was icy cold. I couldn't move. I was still alive, so I quickly asked Master Li Hongzhi, the founder of Falun Dafa, for help. When I began to regain some feeling in my body, I crawled to the toilet.
I was able to walk back with my hand held against the wall for support. I sat on the sofa and started to send forth righteous thoughts. I tried doing the Falun Dafa exercises, but I couldn't raise my arms or bend my legs, and my head felt numb.
I told Master in my heart, “Master, I’m not afraid.”
A Falun Dafa practitioner should be one who can let go of life and death, and I knew I had to continue to go out to to let people know about Dafa. After a short time, I was able to walk slowly. I went downstairs and talked to people in the local vicinity to tell them about Dafa. Nobody even realized that there was anything wrong with me, thanks to Master’s protection.
After looking inward for shortcomings, I realized that I had not clearly understood the need to reject the old forces and their arrangements. I just tried to bear all the suffering, and that caused the tribulation to worsen. I lost more than 20kg within a month.
I didn't look healthy and experienced many symptoms of physical illness. My legs became swollen, I couldn't hear properly, blisters covered my scalp and feet, and I needed to urinate frequently.
At night, people I knew who had passed away stood by my bedside. During the day, my deceased husband came to take me with him, but I shouted, “Master, please save me!” I knew that Master was protecting me.
My younger brother, daughter, niece and nephew tried hard to persuade me to go to the hospital, but my heart never wavered in my belief in Master. In the end, Master really helped me to overcome this life-and-death tribulation.
The Exercises Helped a Lot
On two occasions, while performing the third exercise, I expelled large blood clots from my nose. After that, I became very clear-minded.
Another time, while I was doing the second exercise, I saw a tray on the floor in front of me with two egg-shaped objects. After completing the exercises, I opened my eyes but nothing was there. Just then, I felt my whole body become very relaxed, and the discomfort I had been feeling in my abdomen disappeared.
I knelt down in front of Master’s picture and cried, saying, “Master, you've suffered so much for me, even though I am such a disappointment. No words can describe your great benevolence, and there's no way I can repay you for what you've done for me. I can only cultivate more diligently.”
I often had the attachment of fear when I went out to talk to people about Dafa. Thus, I chose to approach people who appeared easier to talk to. I didn't have any benevolence or sense of urgency in saving sentient beings.
But I persist in going out to clarify the truth and helping people quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) no matter the weather. Although there are hardships during the process, I'm really happy when I see the joy in people who finally understand the truth about Dafa. Below are some of my encounters.
Is Anything Good Anymore?
I was at a marketplace and approached a young woman looking at fruit. She asked if any of them are good for us nowadays. I replied, “I don't think there's much that can be considered good nowadays. The water, air and soil are all polluted.” I then went on to tell her about corrupt officials, the CCP’s history of killing, and fake products. The lady agreed.
I asked her if she had joined the CCP or its affiliated organizations and if she wanted to quit them. She asked if I was a believer of Falun Dafa. When I replied yes, she responded, “Wonderful! In that case, please help me to quit. I've been looking for one of you to help me quit!”
The woman told me how she was given some materials about Falun Dafa when she was abroad, but the tour guide confiscated the materials once they boarded the bus. She agreed that the CCP had done committed many crimes against the Chinese people and said, “Please help me quit.”
After that, she left happily.
Seniors at the Fitness Center Quit the CCP
Several senior members at the local fitness center, most of whom are CCP officials, gather every day and talk about anything and everything. I became friends with them over time. One day, they started talking about Falun Dafa, so I proceeded to tell them about the Tiananmen Self-Immolation hoax, the peaceful appeal of April 25, the persecution, and the CCP’s harvesting of organs from living Falun Dafa practitioners.
I told them the health benefits of the practice and Falun Dafa’s principles of “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance” that practitioners follow in everyday life. They all agreed with what I said, and many of them even quit the CCP.
Dafa's Principles Are Truly Good
A car once blocked my way at an intersection. The driver wound down his window, poked his head out, and smiled at me. I vaguely recognized him. We exchanged greetings, and he asked me what I believed in. When I told him that I believe in “Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance,” he immediately flared up, pointed at me, and shouted, badmouthing Master Li. Passersby were looking at us, but my heart didn't waver. I hoped that the bad elements controlling this man would be removed so that he would not continue committing a sin.
He calmed down after a while, and I said to him, “There's no need to be so angry. We have different beliefs. Being so angry will only harm your body and mind. Please take care of yourself.” Suddenly, he smiled at me and said, “You truly are good. You really follow your principles of ‘Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance!’”
Special Words Can Help
A woman sat near me in a park. Her face was pale, and her eyes were almost closed. I asked if she was okay. She nodded. I told her that she didn't look well and offered to help. I told her to recite, “Falun Dafa is good” and “Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance is good.”
She did, and after a while her face turned a healthy color and she opened her eyes wider. She said, “You're a Falun Dafa practitioner, aren't you!? This really works! I need to record these words on my cell phone so I won’t forget them.”
I told her how Falun Dafa cultivates “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance” and teaches people to good. I also suggested that she tell her family to recite the phrases frequently so that they can also benefit from it.
