Overcoming Vision Problems by Looking Within
(Minghui.org) I am fifty years old and I have cultivated Falun Dafa for more than 20 years. I feel extremely fortunate to have the opportunity to cultivate Dafa. I am just so extremely fortunate!
Since I started cultivation, I have experienced the same karma elimination situation every year. I develop symptoms where my eyes are red and swollen, tearing, sensitive to light, and painful.
I did not pay much attention to the symptoms because each time they occurred, only one eye was affected. This did not impact my ability to read or cause difficulties in my work.
In recent years the symptoms were worse and the pain so severe that it felt as if a knife was cutting into my eye. Each time the symptoms occurred, it lasted for about a month before it started going away. But, I still did not look inside for a reason why this might be happening and I did not cultivate my mind.
In early 2019, my right eye started experiencing the symptoms again, with piercing pain, tearing, redness and swelling. A few days later, a thin white film appeared on this eye and it covered the pupil completely. My vision became very blurred and I could not see things clearly.
However, I still did not pay much attention to the symptoms and did not think about why it kept happening.
One day, near the end of July 2019, I suddenly noticed a white film appeared on my left eye as well. I was still not concerned. A few days later while at work, I noticed that the vision of my left eye also started blurring and the white film started covering the pupil. While dealing with on-line banking transactions I could not see the numbers clearly.
My right eye started getting a little better, but, I could still not see clearly. The vision of both eyes were bad; I became unable to see the transaction numbers.
I went to the person in charge of the accounting and told her, “I can’t see the numbers clearly and cannot do my work. Please find someone else to do the job.” She comforted me and told me that I would be okay, and asked me to go to the hospital for treatment.
I agreed to pay the hospital a visit and asked for some days off. After I went home I thought, “I am a Falun Dafa practitioner. If I went to the hospital wouldn’t I be treating the symptoms as an illness? A Dafa practitioner does not have illnesses. I should look inside for answers.”
Every time the symptoms occurred, there always seemed to be an external cause, such as office renovation, new furniture, etc. This time it appeared to be my home remodeling. People all thought that formaldehyde was the cause of my eye problems.
However, by looking inside I knew the real reason. Dafa cultivation is serious! Dafa practitioners must truly cultivate! But, I had not diligently cultivated myself for a long time. I came to realize that the old forces were interfering with my cultivation and trying to drag me down for my lacking of diligence.
I realized that since I began using a computer, I learned to play QQ, WeChat and other games. In my spare time at work, I often played these games, watched TV series and chatted with people on WeChat. After work, I still could not help but indulge myself in these games and entertainments at home.
I felt sleepy as soon as I began to read Zhuan Falun, and I could not get up in the morning to do the exercises. I was not able to do the five sets of exercises every day for a long time. I kept indulging myself in the ordinary life.
I told myself that I am a Dafa practitioner with a Teacher strengthening me and that I must reject the old forces’ interferences. I knew that I must look inside myself for reasons this eye problem continued, and that I must truly cultivate myself.
I started listening to Master’s Fa lectures every day (because I could not see clearly), and started sending righteous thoughts every hour. Fellow practitioners also sent righteous thoughts to help me. A fellow practitioner who lived nearby came to my home every day after work and we sent righteous thought together.
Fellow practitioners and I shared our cultivation experiences together. They helped me to look inside and to correct myself based on the Fa. I uninstalled QQ and WeChat, and other entertainment software; I started learning the Fa and doing the exercises more diligently.
With Master’s strengthening and fellow practitioners’ help, my vision improved and soon I became able to read the Fa. My eyes continue to improve and I am recovering from this tribulation quickly.
