Master Helped Me Make Breakthroughs and Escape Danger
(Minghui.org) I am 80 years old and a former leader of an enterprise. I began to practice Falun Dafa in 1997. Early in my cultivation, Master told me in a dream that he had removed eight kinds of diseases from my body. After that, all my discomfort was gone.
I have practiced Dafa for 23 years. Throughout that time, I haven’t taken any medications or been given any injections and have been doing very well. Even though I’m 80, I often ride my bicycle to get around. My children said that I was most fortunate to obtain the Fa.
Throughout the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) persecution of Falun Dafa, I have been striving forward on the path of assisting Master to rectify the Fa, even though I’ve stumbled from time to time. I’ve truly felt that Master has been by my side and protecting me all along, so that I’ve been able to pass many trials and tribulations. I’d like to share some of those experiences that touched me the most.
Master Helped Me Escape Danger
Qiaomei (alias) and I have been cooperating to clarify the truth and help people renounce their memberships in the CCP. We produce Dafa materials in our homes. Every time we go out, we take brochures, copies of the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party and The Ultimate Goal of Communism, and other Dafa informational materials.
Qiaomei is almost 70, but she still gives me a ride on her electric bicycle whatever the weather. We have distributed information on every street in our city many times, from north to south and from west to east.
We were waiting at an intersection for the light to change one afternoon in July 2017. Qiaomei gave a copy of The Ultimate Goal of Communism to an elderly man next to her. Someone suddenly appeared from behind us dressed like a CCP official. He walked up to the elderly man and snatched the booklet. He said it was a Falun Gong booklet. Then he pulled the key out of Qiaomei’s ignition and took the purse from her bicycle basket.
He shouted, “You Falun Gong are still handing this out! I’ll report you to the police and have you arrested.” While he was shouting, I quietly recited:
“Should you have fear,it will seize upon youIf thoughts are righteous,evil will collapseThe cultivator’s mindis loaded with FaSend righteous thoughts,and rotten demons explodeGods walk the earth,validating the Fa”
(“What’s to Fear?” from Hong Yin, Translation Version A)
After I calmed down, I began to talk to him and tell him why Falun Gong practitioners were distributing these booklets. When he pulled out his cellphone to report us to the police, I told him not to. I also reached out and tried to stop him. He pushed me so suddenly that I almost fell over.
I thought, “Master, your disciples are in trouble. Please save us and save this sentient being so that he doesn’t commit a crime.”
We were surrounded by an increasing number of onlookers. While he was giving the police our location, it seemed that a voice was telling me something. I enlightened that it was Master giving us a hint. I announced to Qiaomei that I was leaving. I managed to get away and escape in the crowd. The onlookers stood as if they were frozen.
Soon enough, I saw an empty, derelict house and went inside to hide. I began to send forth righteous thoughts for Qiaomei and asked Master to help her. After I had sent forth righteous thoughts for a while, without knowing how she was doing, I decided to go to her home to move her computers and printers to a safe place.
I called a cab to go to see Xiaowen (alias), intending to discuss with her how we would tell Qiaomei’s husband what had happened. Her husband, who is not a practitioner, was ill and always concerned about Qiaomei’s safety. Suddenly I saw Xiaowen, so I asked the cab driver to pull over. Xiaowen told me that she had just left Qiaomei’s house and that she was home already. I felt so relieved seeing that Master truly protected us!
As soon as Qiaomei and I saw each other, we hugged. Words couldn’t express our deep gratitude to Master. Qiaomei told me how she escaped. She was so focused on sending righteous thoughts that she hadn’t heard me say I was leaving. After she realized I was gone, she also managed to escape from the person who tried to report us and left the crowd behind.
A young lady caught up with her and said, “Ma’am, I am a hairdresser. Please come with me to my salon to hide. The police just arrived and are looking for you.”
Qiaomei quickly went with the young lady to her salon. It turned out that she had witnessed the whole thing. After a while, when Qiaomei felt the coast was clear, she returned home. Thank you, Master, for helping us escape danger!
After that happened, we began to look inward seriously and found many attachments, such as not studying the Fa with a calm mind, not staying focused when sending righteous thoughts, the attachment to doing things, and feeling overly pleased with ourselves. Sometimes I wasn’t rational enough when handing out informational material. We should get rid of these attachments; they are obstacles on our cultivation path.
A Lump Disappeared
One day last year, my right breast started to hurt. I didn’t take it to heart, but the pain didn’t go away. There was a hard long strip as thick as a finger, with a hard lump as big as a coin connected to it. At that time, I recalled Master’s words:
“When a tribulation arrives, if you, a disciple, can truly maintain an unshakable calm or be determined to meet different requirements at different levels, this should be sufficient for you to pass the test.” (“Expounding on the Fa,” Essentials for Further Advancement)
Recalling this paragraph suppressed my bad thoughts. I felt calm and relaxed.
When I was 50, I’d had surgery to have a tumor removed from my breast, and this felt like a relapse. But this time I didn’t treat myself like an ordinary person: I was a practitioner and was under Master’s protection; Master had changed my fate, and the root cause of my illness had been removed. Master had also removed my name from hell.
I was studying the Fa and doing the exercises every day. I knew every cell in my body was filled with high-energy matter, so no matter what was growing in my breast, nothing could move me. I knew it was an illusion and a test for me.
At night, when I was paying my respects before my photo of Master, I said, “Master, your disciple is ready to meet this test. Whatever is growing in my breast is an illusion. I will not acknowledge it. I’ll leave everything to Master. I will not let Dafa down or discredit myself. Master, please empower me.”
The next morning, when I was about to do the exercises, it was as if two big hands were weaving in front of me. The right hand was holding a dark gray cluster in its palm, while the left hand was holding a pink cluster in its palm. I heard a voice say, “You are fine.” When I touched my breast again, the hard lump had disappeared. Master had cleaned it up for me. Thank you, Master! It was Master who has helped pay back my karmic debt.
On my cultivation path, Master has been benevolently protecting me at all times. Our wonderful Master is almighty. As long as we have righteous thoughts and faith in Master and Dafa, there are no trials or tribulations that we can’t pass.
