Improving My Understanding of Sickness Karma
(Minghui.org) I had a better understanding of sickness karma after reading Master’s recent lecture, “Fa Teaching at the 2019 New York Fa Conference.”
After reading the lecture three times, I realized I had the wrong understanding about sickness karma. I thought that an “illness” was sickness karma if it was significantly different from an ordinary people’s illness. But if say, a practitioner had symptoms of diabetes, then he really had diabetes.
I used to ask practitioners who had symptoms of diabetes if they had recovered from the illness, and they’d respond that they didn’t have diabetes! I would think, “How can you get well if you don’t even admit you have diabetes?” After reading Master’s lecture, I realized my previous understanding was incorrect.
A few days after the lecture was published, I had symptoms of shingles.
Pain was the main symptom, and it was intense and non-stop. I was in pain day and night, and could not sleep. I knew I was getting rid of karma, and it was a good thing.
I did not go to the hospital, as the doctor could not help me eliminate my karma. I did the exercises several times when I could not sleep. I also sent forth righteous thoughts to clear the bad elements. I tried to base my thoughts on the Fa every day.
The unbearable pain lasted two weeks, and then scabs formed. They fell off and I was fine within a month.
My experience showed me that as long as we firmly believe in Master and Dafa, any amount of sickness karma will eventually be eliminated.
