Gods Know I Am Saving Sentient Beings
(Minghui.org) I practice Falun Dafa and cultivated on my own four years ago because I wasn't able to locate a Fa-study group. Thus, I didn't have other practitioners to share experiences with. One day my grandchild had a fever and was coughing, so my husband and I decided to take him to see a doctor. Afterward, while they were waiting for the child's medications, I went and did some grocery shopping at a nearby market.
It was around 10:00 am, and the market was busy. Suddenly, I saw an elderly lady lying down at the entrance. She wasn't moving at all, and people were just walking by her; nobody seemed interested in offering her a hand.
The elderly lady looked to be in her 90s and a cadre. Without any thoughts except wanting to save her, I quickly ran over to help her sit up. Seeing that she was flushed, I figured her blood pressure must have been really high, causing her to faint.
I was also thinking: If nobody were to come over to give her a hand, chances are she would not be able to get up again. I was very worried. I kept asking her, “Aunty, what's wrong with you?”
I quickly took out a pen and paper and wrote, “Falun Dafa is good” and “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” I whispered in her ear, “Aunty, can you please read this? Believe me, these words can save you! My mom is in her 90s. She has been reciting them for 18 years, and she has been doing very well!”
Though she was a bit muddleheaded, she still managed to follow me and quietly read the words. Soon enough, she became clear and alert.
I asked her, “Aunty, you must be a senior cadre. May I ask if you are also a Chinese Communist Party (CCP) member?”
She acknowledged she was.
I encouraged her to withdraw her membership in the CCP to avoid being implicated in its crimes. She quickly agreed.
I offered to take her home. She said, “Thank you. I really appreciate it, but you know what? My sister is grocery shopping in this market. I’m wondering why she hasn't come out since it's been a while. I can go home with her after that.”
When the bystanders saw that we were chatting and that she seemed fine, they all cheered up.
The lady said, “I truly appreciate what you did for me. I have lived this long, and it was only now that I ran into a good person like you!”
I told her, “Please don't thank me, since this is what I am supposed to do. I practice Falun Dafa, and our master asks us to conduct ourselves according to the standards of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance at all times. But if you still want to thank me, please thank our master instead. He was the one who saved you, not me.”
When I arrived home, I was smiling. My son saw me and asked, “Mom, you are in a good mood today, aren't you? Tell me, what's going on?” I shared the incident at the market with him.
After he heard the story, he was stunned. He said, “Mom, you’re brave! Weren't you afraid she would end up blackmailing you instead?”
“No, not at all. Saving people is a sacred matter, and gods know what I was doing. For that, they would not have me run into something bad. My son, you can rest assured!” I smiled at him again.
