Paying Back a Karmic Debt
(Minghui.org) When I went for a walk in 2016, I passed a parked truck. I thought I was quite safe on the sidewalk, but I heard a loud voice calling, “Back up! Back up!” I stopped immediately. I looked around but couldn't see where the voice was coming from.
However, my celestial eye saw an old-fashioned royal horse-drawn carriage heading toward the west. At the same time, I felt my head was bumped slightly. I didn't feel anything else. I looked down and saw that I was wrapped in a thick, white, soft material. Rays of yellow light were shooting out from the material. I felt that Master [Li Hongzhi] was protecting me.
Then, I couldn't see or move but realized that I was laying on the ground. Suddenly, I felt an electric shock running from my shoulders to my arms but no other pain. I thought, “Master is adjusting my energy pathways.” Then I became unconscious and had a dream. Through the window of a cabin, I saw a practitioner who had passed away from illness several years before. She smiled at me.
I then heard a burst of noise. I opened my eyes and saw another practitioner. I knew I had been in an accident and said to her, "Help me get up,” after which I passed out again. She told me later, “I did help you to get up. I saw a big pool of blood. People told me not to move you, so I put you down again. You had a hole in the back of your head the size of an egg. I saw things oozing out! I was so scared that I almost fainted.”
When I woke up in a hospital a few hours later, I wondered if I had been given any medicine. As a practitioner, I was certain that medicine would not have any effect on me. I then saw that I was being given a saline solution. I sat up and meditated without any discomfort.
I wondered if I should leave the hospital. A fellow practitioner quoted Master's teaching, “And how could ordinary people heal a divine being's sickness?” (Teaching the Fa in the City of Los Angeles)
The next day, I was allowed to walk around. I used every opportunity to tell the doctors, nurses, other patients, and their families about Falun Dafa. I advised 21 people to withdraw from the Chinese Communist Party(CCP) and its youth organizations.
On the third day, I was getting ready to go home, but I felt a sharp pain in my arms whenever someone touched them. Worried that I might not be discharged, I didn't tell anyone about it. However, the doctor wanted me to have an MRI, as he suspected that I was suffering from a cervical injury.
He said, “Cervical injuries can be very serious. You might not able to take care of yourself or, worse, die in agony.” I knew that he could be right if I were not a practitioner. But, as a cultivator, the symptoms were just a test. I told him that I would make a speedy recovery when I was able to study Falun Dafa and do the exercises. And sure enough, the problem with my arms went away after I got home and resumed my Fa-study and exercises.
"Nobody will dare to rashly do anything to you as long as your practice stays on track. And besides, you have the protection of my spiritual bodies. So no harm will come to you." (The Third Talk, Zhuan Falun)
My accident appeared to be very serious, but I was never in any danger. I was not afraid or had any discomfort – I simply passed out. I believe that if Master had not looked after me, I would have died.
I also enlightened that I paid back a karmic debt in this dimension when I lay on the ground for 40 minutes, but the real pain and suffering was borne by Master.
“...whether or not you can achieve Consummation is not determined at the last minute, but is determined during the course of your cultivation. When the person is close to being able to do it, the tests to determine if he will achieve Consummation will begin. So these are very critical. As long as you are a cultivator, you will encounter this for sure. For a human being, this trial is precisely a life and death test.” (Teaching the Fa at the Conference in Canada)
There is no coincidence in cultivation. My understanding is that I was given a life-or-death test, and with it, I paid back my debt. The hole in the back of my head was an “illusion” in a certain sense because I didn't feel any pain.
In the end, I didn't ask for any money from the responsible party. He was very moved and he and his family quit the CCP.
