Believing in Dafa: Master Is with Me All the Time
(Minghui.org) In my 23 years of Falun Dafa cultivation, I have witnessed many amazing things. My wife recovered from angina pectoris, and she has not been sick since. I recovered from gastric erosion, and no longer feel any pain. I know that Master Li, the founder of Falun Dafa, is always protecting us. Although we are both in our 80s now, we look much younger than our age.
My family lived in a village when I was a child. One night, I was lying on my kang, a heatable brick bed, but could not fall asleep. When looking outside the window, I saw a man in the sky wearing a gray-white armor, carrying three pointed swords on his back. He was staring at me. Behind him were a few more warriors who looked exactly like the first one. They reminded me of Yue Fei (1103-1142 AD), the Song Dynasty general, and his troops, fighting enemies on the battlefield. That scene troubled me for many years because no one could explain why I experienced this.
A cousin of mine came to visit in 1996, and gave me a copy of Zhuan Falun, the main teaching of Falun Dafa. After reading “On Dafa” – the introduction to Zhuan Falun,and the first lecture, my heart suddenly felt great joy—the inexplicable mystery that had bothered me for so many years was finally solved. I found the answer in this book! Looking at Master Li’s photo, I felt as if I had met him somewhere before. So I told my cousin that I wanted to keep the book. I also asked for other books written by Master.
Dafa teaches me many things – I understand that everyone has their heavenly origins. Although things in this world appear to be chaotic, everything happens for a reason, and there are higher beings arranging things in the human world.
Protected in an Accident
Since the onset of the persecution of Falun Dafa in 1999, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has slandered Dafa, and fabricated stories to poison people's minds. Having benefited from Dafa, I believed that I had a responsibility to help people understand what Dafa really is. To do this, I install satellite dishes for people to receive broadcasts from the New Tang Dynasty TV, an overseas media that broadcasts uncensored news about China.
One day on my way to install an antenna for a customer, I was hit by a car. Although I did not remember exactly how the accident occurred, I knew that someone was holding my head and quietly took care of me.
I could not move, and thus was unable to turn around to see who was holding my head. It felt as if my muscles, bones, and tendons were all separated, yet my mind was sober – I was very calm, and completely carefree.
When I was put down on the side of the road, I noticed that I could sit, but did not understand how, since my body was so soft. I did not know when the good-hearted man left, or what he looked like. It later dawned on me that it could be Master who protected me.
The fellow practitioner who was there to install the satellite dish with me had been waiting. Not to keep him waiting for too long, I wanted to stand up, but could not. So I thought if I could move my toes, I would be able to feel my feet, and then my legs would be fine to walk. I stood up suddenly, and started to walk very fast. The fellow practitioner walked behind me in case I fell. I climbed the stairs without holding the railings. Although my legs and feet were still shaking, I climbed all the way up to the sixth floor with no help.
“There is actually much difficulty when one wants to practice cultivation. One simply cannot succeed in genuine cultivation without the protection of my fashen. As soon as you step out the door, your life may be in danger.” (Lecture Six, Zhuan Falun)
“What is owed must be paid for. Therefore, some dangerous things may occur in the course of cultivation practice. When these things take place, however, you will not be scared, and neither will real danger be allowed to happen to you.” (Lecture Three, Zhuan Falun)
Master Held the Bag for Me
The roads were frozen for several days in November 2011. I had been hoping for the ice to melt soon so I could go out to clarify the facts about Dafa to people. On the fourth day, a thought suddenly occurred that it would be a good time to go out at night to distribute Dafa materials, since not many people would be out.
After dinner, I took over 200 desk calendars, with Dafa facts, put them into two bags, then loaded one on my shoulder, with the other one in the back of my bicycle. My goal was to distribute these calendars to families in a village about six miles away.
It was impossible to ride my bike on the icy roads, so I pushed it forward. Then all of a sudden, the bag on the back fell off, so I had to stop to pick up the calendars, put them back inside the bag, and then continue on my way.
When I arrived at the village, I started to distribute the calendars to every household, starting at one end of the village. At the end of the road, I told myself that there were still more houses down the other side. So I turned around, and at this moment, I saw Master’s fashen. He was holding the bag on the back of my bike to stop it from sliding off. I was very touched, and understood that Master was with me and protecting me all the time.
I rode my bike home after distributing all the calendars because the roads were no longer slippery. It felt as if someone was pushing me from behind, so when I got home at 11:00 p.m., I was not tired at all.
