Looking Inward After Breaking My Wrist

January 13, 2020 |   By a Falun Dafa practitioner in Henan Province, China

(Minghui.org) An accident occurred this past March as I was rushing to get ready to go to my brother’s restaurant to distribute Dafa pamphlets. I fell near the bathroom doorway, and when I stood up, I saw that my right hand was hanging at an odd angle. My wrist was broken. 

Treating My Injury as a Tribulation

I am a veteran practitioner who has practiced Falun Dafa since 1998. I remembered something Master Li said in Zhuan Falun,

“If that supernormal ability is used well, a piece of rock can be crushed with a hand.” (Lecture Six, Zhuan Falun

So I held my right hand with my left, gave my wrist a twist, and put the hand back in place. I prayed to Master for help and repeated in my mind: “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good. I completely deny the persecution of the old forces.”

Then I tried to make Dafa pamphlets, but found that my wrist wasn't stable. I calmed myself down and thought of another quote from Master: 

“The issue of cultivation is not child’s play, and neither is it a technique of everyday people—it is a very serious matter. Whether you want to cultivate or are able to cultivate depends completely upon how your xinxing is improved.” (Lecture Two, Zhuan Falun)

I regretted that I did not think of Master at the critical moment. Luckily, my sister and her daughter arrived to help me with the pamphlets.

Looking Inward

I looked inward and found a lot of attachments. I was complacent, and became too dependent on others. I also liked to show off and was attached to self-interest and sentimentality. I thought that I cultivated better than others because I prepared and distributed more pamphlets. Now, I realized that telling people the facts about Falun Dafa is just part of our duties. One is not cultivating if one does not elevate one's xinxing

Teacher said in Zhuan Falun:

“The entire cultivation process for a cultivator is one of constantly giving up human attachments.” (Lecture One, Zhuan Falun

I felt bad that I still had so many attachments after having cultivated for so many years.

Elevating My Xinxing

When I brought the pamphlets to my brother’s home, I saw that my right hand was extremely swollen. I went out anyway and handed the pamphlets to people and put them on car windshields. 

Because I couldn't hold chopsticks with my right hand, my brother and others urged me to see a doctor; but I told them I was okay, I was a practitioner, and Master would help me.

When I returned home, my son also wanted me to see a doctor. I told him that I would be fine.

I doubled my Fa study, sent righteous thoughts every hour on the hour, did the exercises twice a day, and looked inward constantly.

My right hand still didn't function normally, but I felt it was an illusion and I didn't acknowledge it. I completely rejected this interference and prayed to Master for help. 

I needed to prepare more Dafa brochures, so I just did whatever I needed to do as usual. Two of our informational material production centers stopped functioning, and I planned to bring Dafa pamphlets and other materials to the group Fa study site. 

But my right hand still hurt, so I couldn't ride my bicycle. There was no public transportation, so I decided to walk. It took me a long time but the practitioners were delighted to see me and get the materials. I was happy that I got rid of my attachments to comfort during this process. 

As I continued with my daily activities as though nothing had happened, Master healed my wrist.
