A Young Physician: Grateful for Protection by Falun Dafa
(Minghui.org) I am a physician at a major hospital. Others envy me because of my successful career. They would not have thought that way if they saw me 20 years ago. Falun Dafa (aka Falun Gong) and Master Li Hongzhi, the founder of Falun Gong changed my life.
Recovery from Stomach Pain
I was sick a lot as a young child. In middle school, I started to have a chronic stomachache. Sometimes the pain was so severe that I was covered in a cold sweat. My grades suffered. Both Western and Chinese medicine was tried in vain.
Our neighbor suggested in 2002 that my mother and I give Falun Gong a try. The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) ideology and propaganda taught in school made me resist the suggestion. I even said some disrespectful words to our neighbor. Nevertheless, I followed along and learned the exercises. As I was doing the second exercise, the Falun Standing Stance, suddenly my stomach churned and I vomited. I felt immediate relief in my abdomen. I pressed on my stomach, no more pain. “It’s magical!” I said to my mother.
I became physically stronger, my mood improved, and I was no longer scared of the dark. My grades went up. My teachers could not believe their eyes. I no longer was known for being involved in fights at school.
Falun Gong is a cultivation system. Master Li is here to awaken our conscience. I was finally able to see through the slander and propaganda I heard on television or from any other media. I was grateful to Master and Dafa. I also want to apologize for the disrespectful words I said about Master and Dafa prior to cultivation.
Keep the Fa In My Heart
I went to a boarding high school. During those years, I strayed away from Falun Gong. Competitiveness and jealously surfaced.
In medical school, tension was high. My goal was to continue graduate school studies after graduation. The entrance exam to graduate school was extremely competitive. Many students were applying for a few seats.
I started to lose sleep. One day, my mother reminded me of what Master said. “If something is yours, you will not lose it. If something is not yours, you will not have it even if you fight for it.” (Lecture Seven, Zhuan Falun). She added, “Just do your best.”
Those words gave me peace of mind. I stayed focused when I studied, and rested when it was time to go to bed. I shared notes, and study tips with other students. Sometimes I brought food back from the cafeteria to give them more time to study. Being considerate of other people is what a practitioner needs to do.
On testing day, my heart was calm. The day went smoothly. I was the first student ever being accepted into a prestigious graduate program from my school. Dafa gave me the wisdom and strength to accomplish everything.
Master Protects Me
Instead of raising awareness of the persecution like many other practitioners, I have been a student for most of the years after I started practicing Falun Gong. Even then, Master is always there to protect and guide me.
There is an intersection right outside of my dorm. One summer day in 2016, before crossing the road, I waited for the green light, I looked both sides and ran onto the street. Next, I heard a crash. I saw a cleaning car parked next to me. Its front light had broken out, and broken glass was on the ground.
The sanitation worker jumped out of the car and said: “Child, I did not see you, I couldn’t stop the car, and hit you, are you OK?”
I was very confused as I did not feel anything. Looking around, I was surprised that I was still standing on the curb. Right away I realized Master blocked the car and pulled me to safety.
“I am all right, really sorry I broke your lights.” The sanitation worker was so relieved that she broke into tears.
I took a three-month leave in the winter of 2018. During that time, I studied the Fa intensively and did the Falun Gong exercises. I read Zhuan Falun over and over again. The more I read, the more I wanted to read. I was also able to push my sitting meditation to one hour.
My father and I got into a car accident in 2019. We were exiting from a highway and our car was hit by a truck. I remember broken glass was falling down around me like snowflakes. The smell of gas and dust was intense.
Our car stopped after spinning uncontrollably. I called my father. No response. I begged Master: “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good! Master please save my father.” A few minutes later, my father coughed and opened his eyes.
Our car was totaled. My father and I came out alive. The truck driver’s insolent attitude angered me. I was unable to react with compassion. To retaliate, I took my father to the hospital.
My whole body started to hurt once we arrived at the hospital, so I had a check-up too. Several of my ribs were fractured and there were soft tissue injuries. My feet started to swell and I could not walk. The emergency room doctor recommended my father and I be admitted for observation. My father chose to stay. He is not a Falun Gong practitioner.
It struck me that I am a Falun Gong practitioner, I should not cause trouble to anyone, including the driver who hit us. I believe Master will take care of me and so I went home.
The pain in my entire body was unbearable that night. My mom encouraged me to increase Fa-study. I remembered Master's words:
“When it’s difficult to endure, you can endure it. When it’s impossible to do, you can do it.” (Lecture Nine, Zhuan Falun)
I sat up to send forth righteous thoughts. My legs felt like being stabbed by glass. I ignored the pain. I was able to walk after I finished. It was amazing!
That night, it felt as if I was laying on a ball of fire, the heat radiated through my body. The next morning, my body was in so much pain that I could not even keep my pace with the music when I did the exercises. My body felt relief and light by the time I finished the sitting meditation. I spent the rest of the day studying the Fa.
Three days later, I was fully recovered. My father was still in the hospital, and he needed help to get around. He was convinced that Falun Dafa was powerful, and told his roommates that reciting “Falun Dafa is good” will help one recover quicker. Those who heard about our accident agreed that Master and Dafa’s power is amazing.
