Meeting a God When I Had Nowhere to Go
(Minghui.org) I am in my early 70s. Twenty years ago, I was in a state of extreme pain. I felt tired and had frequent chest pain and flatulence for nearly six months. I would feel discomfort when I consumed a small snack at night.
I am a rural woman who has been through hardships such as the Great Leap Forward. However, I had a hard time overcoming these illnesses and went to see a doctor.
I checked into a city hospital on November 6, 1998 and was diagnosed with more than a dozen illnesses. The most serious problem was a gallbladder rupture that required surgery. The doctor said that I needed to undergo surgery no later than 10:00 a.m. the next day. Otherwise, my life would be in danger.
I went home and discussed medical expenses with my two sons. Although they were not rich, they collected six thousand yuan as a down payment for the surgery. We didn’t know what the final cost would be. It was hard for me as an old lady who had been thrifty all my life.
Suddenly, I remembered a conversation I had overheard. Someone said, “Falun Gong has a miraculous effect.” I walked to a practitioner's home, knocked on the door, and asked to borrow a Dafa book. She told me there was a shortage of the book Zhuan Falun and that several people shared the same book. She had another Dafa book called The Great Consummation Way of Falun Dafa, which I brought home.
It was already evening, so I didn’t read the book. Instead, by following the pictures in the book, I learned the Falun Gong exercises. I realize that my movements might not have been correct and were rather rough. However, I felt that a lot of heavy stuff had dropped off my body. I was relaxed and suddenly felt hungry. I ate a bowl of leftover rice and felt zesty.
I cried after dinner. Why? Because I felt I had met a true god. The next day, my sons came to take me to the hospital for surgery. I told them, “I am not going. I met a god, and my illnesses are gone.” I then showed them the book, The Great Consummation Way of Falun Dafa, and returned the money for the down payment to them. They were impressed, encouraged me to practice, and mentioned that cultivation was really good.
That's when I began Dafa cultivation. Witnessing the miracle that happened to me, the doctor I met at the hospital also began to practice Dafa.
On July 20, 1999, Jiang Zemin, the head of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), initiated the persecution of Falun Dafa. Since then, I have worked closely with local practitioners and talked to people face to face, rain or shine, and asked them to quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations. I estimate that I have persuaded more than 10,000 people to quit the CCP.
Under Master’s protection, many miracles happened when I talked to people about Falun Gong. I will share two examples in order to thank Master for his arrangements.
One day in October 2015, a well-dressed man walked toward me. I greeted him, and he responded politely. I talked to him about Falun Gong by sharing my story. I also brought up the self-immolation hoax on Tiananmen Square and mentioned that people in more than 100 countries and regions around the world practice Dafa.
After I finished talking, he asked if I knew who he was. I was not afraid because Dafa practitioners are more powerful than he was, and I had a real god behind me. I said that I knew he was looking for the truth and could be saved if he understood the facts about Falun Gong.
He said, “You are a very kind person, and I'll tell you that I am the head of this Procuratorate.”
“Well, that’s good,” I said. “I hope you’re not involved in sentencing Dafa practitioners. You or your family will be punished if you are involved. Don't ignore the heavenly principle that good is rewarded while evil is punished.”
He said he was not involved but that his staff did such things. I told him, “You must remember that Falun Dafa is good and Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance is good. It will keep you safe when you encounter hardship.”
He was attentive and saved the words on his cell phone. When I asked if he was a member of the CCP, he remained silent. I asked his last name, made up a pseudonym for him, and asked if he would quit the CCP using the pseudonym. He agreed.
I met an old lady at a farmer's market one day in 2017. After exchanging a few words, I realized that she was not that old. I told her the healing effects of practicing Falun Gong. She said that the government didn’t allow people to practice Dafa and asked me why I dared to do it. I asked her, “If the government didn't allow you to be healthy, would you not choose to be healthy anyway?” I could tell that she was shocked by my response.
I asked about her health. She said she had poor health, including high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and high triglycerides. She also had uremia and hair loss. I told her my cultivation story, and she was impressed. I gave her a Falun Gong keepsake and flyers, and she agreed to quit the CCP.
I've encountered many miraculous things like this, but I won’t talk about all of them.
I also want to tell people who feel they have nowhere to go that they shouldn’t despair because the divine is here.
