(Minghui.org) I am an 82-year-old practitioner of Falun Gong, an ancient spiritual and meditation discipline based on the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. After years of practicing Falun Gong, I’ve enjoyed good health despite my age.

Before the New Year's holiday this year, I went out on my bicycle like usual to raise awareness about the Chinese Communist Party's persecution of Falun Gong that has been going on since 1999. There is a hill one mile from my home. I usually get off my bike and push the bike up, and I try to stay as close to the right side of the edge of the road as much as possible.

Halfway up the hill, a motorcycle carrying two middle-aged women struck me hard on my left leg. The pain was excruciating. My leg felt like it had been torn apart and I could barely stand. I tried my best to hold onto my bike with all my strength to avoid falling over.

One of the women got off her motorcycle, borrowed a chair from a nearby store and helped me sit down. They seemed to blame me: “Why are you riding a bike at such an advanced age?”

I thought, as a Falun Gong practitioner, I would be fine with Master's protection. They wanted to buy medicine and fruit for me. I told them that I did not want anything. They were saying sorry by then.

I told them that I was a Falun Gong practitioner and that I would not cause trouble for them. I told them that it must have been fate that had brought us together. I told them about the persecution, and the devastating disasters caused by the Chinese Communist Party’s authoritarian rule, as well as some unusual signs that I think are warnings from heaven about the upcoming elimination of the CCP.

I urged them to quit the CCP and its related organizations, in order to secure a safe future. They delightfully quit the Young Pioneers. I also asked them to remember the phrases “Falun Gong is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good,” as it would safeguard them when they face danger in the future.

I also gave them some Falun Gong informational materials and keepsakes. They were grateful and also impressed that I treated them so well even after they hit me. “Just by your way of handling the accident, we can see that Falun Gong must be an upright practice.”

They offered to send me home. I told them that I lived nearby and I could go back by myself. I wished them well and went home. It was amazing that my pain had subsided by the time I finished talking with them. I stood up slowly, returned the chair to the store owner, and went home.

After I got home, I checked my left leg. It was badly swollen, and my left foot and leg were black and blue. My family members wondered why I had not told them at the time so that they could come help. I told them that I was a cultivator, and I would handle things like one. “It was an accident, they did not hit me on purpose.”

The swelling subsided in a few days, and the pain dissipated as well. I am deeply grateful for Master's saving grace. I could not imagine how anyone in their 80's could withstand such an impact without any damage. I am so fortunate to be a Falun Gong practitioner.
