Turning a Bad Thing into a Good Thing
(Minghui.org) On my way home on June 21, 2018, I was hit by a car as I was crossing the street. When I came to, a traffic officer was standing over me, asking for my phone number. I asked, “Where am I? Why am I here?”
The car owner said, “You were hit by my car.” He wanted to take me to the hospital. Although I told him that I was fine and I wanted to go home, he still insisted on taking me to the hospital.
I had several injuries, including a broken left collarbone and broken bones in my left foot. The doctor said I needed surgery. Knowing that I would recover by doing the Falun Dafa exercises, I politely declined the doctor's suggestion.
The doctor moved me from the emergency room to a temporary bed on the hallway.
My family, who had arrived at the scene of the accident before I was taken to the hospital, insisted that I stay for two more days for observation in the hospital.
During those two days, I kept sending forth righteous thoughts. The pain became less severe. Nobody believed me at first, but they changed their minds when they saw how fast I recovered. They were amazed. I knew Master took on a lot for me.
I started searching within. Nothing is accidental. I realized that, with a strong competitive mentality, I sometimes had a tendency to run a red light. I was not being considerate of others and not being benevolent. I made up my mind to get rid of that attachment and change myself.
I continued to send forth strong righteous thoughts and I felt the pain was completely gone. The next morning, I was able to do all five exercises. Although I couldn't lift my left arm high enough, I did the best I could.
The following afternoon, I was discharged from the hospital. Six days later, the car owner visited me at home. He was surprised to see me open the door for him. “How can you be walking?” he asked. His wife was amazed at what she saw.
The car owner was relieved. I asked him if he knew about Falun Dafa. He said, “When people tried to tell me about it in the past, I did not want to listen. I just didn't believe it.”
Now he listened to me tell him about Falun Dafa. Then I told him that I would not ask him for any money because of what Master Li taught us. He exclaimed, “I had no idea Falun Dafa was so good!”
By the end of two weeks, I had completely recovered. The car owner's family and I went together to the traffic police station to settle the accident. I helped them withdraw from the Chinese Communist Party and told them to remember “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.”
The car owner sincerely thanked me and invited my husband and me to dinner. His wife told us that their cousin was also involved in a car accident and suffered from broken bones in her foot. She was still on crutches even after three months.
She told her about what happened to me. The cousin said, “Why didn’t you tell me earlier?” The car owner also told the cousin to recite “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” They also told their friends about Falun Dafa.
