80-Year-Old Survives Accident
(Minghui.org) I am 80 years old and I practice Falun Dafa. The following is my experience in a recent accident.
I had errands to take care of on March 4, 2019. As I got off the bus, I was struck by an electric motorcycle traveling at a fast speed. My first thought, as I was knocked to the ground, was the following:
“We have said that good or bad comes from a person’s initial thought, and the thought at that moment can bring about different consequences.” (Lecture Four, Zhuan Falun)
My lower back was in pain and my vision was blurry, but I kept saying to myself, “I am a practitioner, I am fine.”
The motorcycle driver was a young man. He helped me sit on the side of the road. He was nervous, so I told him I practice Falun Dafa and did not blame him for the accident. Then I told him that it was fate that we met. I asked him, “Did you wear the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) red scarf when you were a student, or join any of the CCP groups?” He replied that he had joined the CCP and other affiliated organizations.
I told him about the CCP's reputation, corruption and wrongdoing. I also told him that more than 300 million people in China had already withdrawn from the party and its affiliated organizations. He did not hesitate and used his real name to withdraw. He also helped remove his son from the Young Pioneers. He accepted the Falun Dafa amulet I gave him. I was pleased that he and his son were both safe after withdrawing from the CCP.
I asked the young man to take me to the bus stop so I could go home. Once home, I went to show respect to Teacher (the founder of Falun Dafa, Li Hongzhi) by holding my hands together in prayer position in front of his portrait. I thanked Teacher for once again saving me.
My son wanted to take me to the hospital. I told him that I would be fine because I had Teacher and Dafa.
Another practitioner visited me in the afternoon, and we sent forth righteous thoughts together.
As usual, I studied and listened to Teacher’s lectures, practiced the exercises, and sent righteous thoughts daily. I solidly walked the path arranged by Teacher.
I kept recalling what Teacher said:
"I'm Li Hongzhi's disciple, I don't want other arrangements or acknowledge them ..." (Fa-Lecture During the 2003 Lantern Festival at the U.S. West Fa Conference)
Soon I was able to get up and cook and do housework. I improved by the day.
Thank you, Teacher, for your compassionate blessing and protection. I must practice well and advance solidly so as to repay your salvation.
