(Minghui.org) I would like to share a story that I recently experienced during this global pandemic.
I began practicing Falun Dafa six years ago. Inspired by how amazing Dafa is I began to clarify the truth to the people around me. I always tried to tell them more, but I found that if I push too much, some people reject what I say.
One of my friends always politely listened. We're the same age and have known each other for many years. We often talked to each other on the phone. She had many illnesses, so I told her about how practicing Falun Dafa helped me. She didn't say anything, but agreed to read Zhuan Falun. She had strong misunderstandings about Dafa. After she read Zhuan Falun she said that it was a good book.
Her sicknesses did not go away, so I encouraged her to try practicing. She said, “I have a spiritual belief already, I'm a Christian.” I was sad but didn't try to persuade her because I was afraid that she might say something negative about Falun Dafa and create karma for herself.
She knows that I'm kind and compassionate, and we remained friends. In 2015 she invited me to her home for dinner. I explained that millions of Chinese already quit the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) and I encouraged her to quit. I pointed out its bloody history-from its many political movements, to the Tiananmen Square massacre, to the persecution of Falun Dafa. She was amazed and asked where I learned all this information. I told her that it was all available online.
I asked her to think it over. After we talked for hours, she agreed to quit the CCP.
This February she phoned and said that she felt fatigued, had a fever and couldn't stop coughing. I wanted to help her. I told her that many people have felt better by saying, “Falun Dafa is good” and “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good”. She said, “I'm a Christian. I'll ask Jesus for help.” I didn't say anything.
I was happy when she got a little better, and I reminded her to get extra food in case the stores in her city closed. I reminded her to say, “Falun Dafa is good.”
My city was affected by the CCP virus (coronavirus) in March. She phoned me and anxiously said, “I have trouble breathing. Can you please phone me tomorrow? If I don't answer it probably means that I've died.” I realized how serous this virus was. She lives alone and her house is a two-hour drive away.
I said, “Don't worry. Please repeat what I say, Falun Dafa is good; Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good. Master, please help me.” She repeated the words. Then, we said the words again and again for an hour. After a while she said, “I feel better. I can breathe now.”
I sent her a link to a Falun Dafa website and suggested she watch the videos of Master Li's lectures. I explained the lectures have very strong positive energy. She followed my suggestion and watched Master's lectures in Guangzhou. While she watched, I sent forth righteous thoughts to eliminate whatever was interfering with her.
She phoned again later that night and told me that she felt much better. She fell asleep while watching the videos. I reminded her to say the words and to keep watching the videos. She agreed and watched all the videos. She also started to learn the exercises. I was surprised and very happy.
I felt frustrated after failing to wake her up so many times. I thought the situation was hopeless. I told her so much, but she always became impatient whenever I mentioned Falun Dafa. But Master didn't give up on her. If she hadn't been in danger, she probably wouldn't have called me, and not developed correct understandings of Dafa. From the bottom of my heart I thanked Master. Didn't Master save me the same way six years ago?
Two weeks later, she was completely recovered. She phoned me and excitedly thanked me. She said that she does the exercises and reads Zhuan Falun every day. I said, “If Master wasn't already looking after you, I couldn't have helped you. Don't thank me; you must be clear about what Falun Dafa really is. Thank our Master. We have both been saved by Master.” She firmly agreed with me.
She told me that when she first had difficulty breathing, she went to three hospitals, asking to be tested. But none of the hospitals had sufficient supplies or test kits. They just told her to go home and self-quarantine.
Medical science can do little in the face of this global pandemic. Many people have witnessed the amazing power of Falun Dafa. I know that I need to do more to save people.
I want to tell people to please put down their misunderstandings of Falun Dafa and listen to practitioners. Many people felt that they've been blessed by remembering that, “Falun Dafa is good; Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.”
