Cultivation Experiences of a New Falun Dafa Practitioner in Canada
(Minghui.org) I started practicing Falun Dafa in June 2018. I understood the true meaning of life and that I needed to be a good person. During these two years of cultivation, my moral character has indeed improved.
Many ailments I had disappeared. For example, my vision used to be blurry. It always felt like there was something sticky in my eyes. I had to wash them frequently in order to see clearly. Sometimes I couldn’t even read my phone. I visited Western and Chinese medicine doctors but nothing helped. Two weeks after I began practicing Falun Dafa, I was able to see clearly.
In 2015, my feet began feeling numb and my right calf became swollen. My Chinese medicine doctor told me that it was difficult to recover from this condition. But all the symptoms were gone after I practiced Falun Dafa for four months. I suffered from an old knee injury so it hurt to walk up or down stairs. My knees were fine six months after I began practicing.
I was always fat. In February 2013, half of my body became numb. I went to the hospital and was diagnosed with hypertension, hyperlipidemia, and fatty liver. I went to my doctor for a check-up in December 2019, and all the indicators were normal. I was so happy I wept. I knew Master had benevolently saved me.
Many other physical problems I’d suffered from were resolved. My hemorrhoids were gone. My injured wrist was normal. Hair grew back on my nearly bald head and it’s very thick.
My Life and Death Experience
On October 27, 2018, I was working at a food factory. The company had never purchased grain before, so no one had any experience handling it. A load of grain was delivered and we wanted to move it into the storage container. A co-worker on a forklift was going to move the grain bucket, but the forklift got stuck in the mud. I decided to free the forklift by using the cable hanging from the variable speed pulley. It was about 18 meters between the pulley and the truck. My co-worker wrapped the cable around the tire to secure it.
The variable speed pulley was manual, so I had to hold the cable tightly to be able to pull it smoothly. Suddenly, the cable broke. I saw a yellow pulley fly towards me, hit the left side of my face, and fly behind me. I fell backward, covering my face with both hands. I felt my left eyeball hanging out and my face ripped open. It felt like my cheekbones were broken. Time froze and everything became slow and silent.
I suddenly remembered Master’s words: “...good or evil comes from a person’s spontaneous thought...” (Zhuan Falun)
I called out to Master to save me: “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” I told myself I would be okay. My coworkers rushed over to check on me and took my hands from my face. To everyone’s astonishment, I was fine. When they told me that there was nothing wrong and I wasn't even bleeding, I couldn’t believe it. I took out my phone and took a photo of my face. I had no injuries! The vision in my left eye was blurry, and the flesh around it felt like it was burning. I told everyone that I was fine. Since they’d witnessed the accident, everyone was amazed.
By the time I walked back to my dorm, the flesh under my left eye had turned purple and then it turned black. I knew Master had saved me from serious injury. It was a manifestation of “good or evil comes from a person’s spontaneous thought.” After a day, the black spot under my left eye turned purple and then red. It recovered rapidly.
Through studying the Fa, my xinxing has improved. I now understand many things that I was confused about in the past. I also understand that there are deeper meanings and reasons for why things happen. Many things I thought were correct are actually wrong. I stopped pursuing many things. By studying the treasured book Zhuan Falun, I’ve learned the true meaning of life and the real principles of the universe.
My wife was very happy to see how I changed. In the past I frequently lost my temper with her and always criticized her. Now, I see my own shortcomings. She noticed that my behavior changed for the better after I began practicing Falun Dafa. She has begun practicing with me and she's even more diligent and serious about it than me. My wife and I want to cultivate; assimilate to the characteristics of the universe, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance; and return to our true home.
