Surviving Terminal Cancer by Firmly Believing in Master
(Minghui.org) I am 75 years old, and started practicing Falun Dafa in 1996. Over the past 20 years of cultivation, Master Li has eliminated a lot of karma for me. Master gave me a second life, and I thank Him for his compassion.
Trusting in Dafa and Master
I told my sister and my daughter that I had a lump in my left breast in the spring of 2018. My daughter suggested that I be tested at a hospital. I told her that I was fine, I didn’t feel pain or anything. My sister said: “We are cultivators. We have Master and Dafa to protect us. The illness is false. We should only follow the path arranged by Master.” I told them that I would not see a doctor, but would only follow Master, study the Fa, and do the three things well instead.
The lump grew as big as an egg by the winter of 2018, but I didn't feel any discomfort. After the Chinese New Year, I told my son, also a Dafa practitioner, about the lump. He said: “Go check it out. If it is nothing serious, we will all feel at ease.”
Both my daughter and daughter-in-law were also very anxious and asked me to check into the hospital. I went to the hospital for an examination to reassure them. However, the test result was advanced cancer: the tumor had metastasized to the lungs.
The doctor didn't tell me the result but just said that I had to have surgery. When I heard this, I thought to myself, “I won't bring shame to Dafa. I won't have surgery. I have to go home, study the Fa, and do the exercises. I will do the three things that Master wants me to do.”
The situation changed the next day. I felt a big, soft hand pushing behind my back for three to four minutes before I got up in the morning. I felt very comfortable. I knew it was Master who was helping me eliminate my karma and purify my body. At this point, my sister called and said: “We are Dafa practitioners, we have to follow Master's requirements, Dafa practitioners are super-normal, we do not have any illness. The manifestation of the illness is all false.” I became more firm in my heart after hearing this.
My sister continued, “The fellow practitioners nearby are sending righteous thoughts for you. You should firmly believe in Master and Dafa, and only follow the path arranged by Him.” I realized that Master was using my sister to encourage me to trust Him and Dafa.
Master Purifies My Body
I went to the Fa study group every night. When I opened the main book of Falun Dafa, Zhuan Falun, I saw Master’s photo smiling at me. I knew that He was encouraging me. I told my son later about this. He reminded me not to have a mentality of zealotry. I then looked inward and found a lot of attachments: jealousy, affection, showing-off, and fear. I was determined to get rid of them.
In the first half of 2019, the egg-sized lump in my breast began to grow outwards. It grew like a cauliflower until it burst open. Liquid flowed out from inside the lump. The left breast was red and big, and sometimes it felt a little painful. I didn’t take it seriously and continued doing my household chores, cooking, washing clothes, and growing vegetables.
My breast started bleeding occasionally in August of 2019. One day, it was bleeding for an hour-and-a-half, and I could hardly bear it any more. So I said, “Master, I cannot bear it any longer.” Then it stopped bleeding. It bled about three bowls of blood that day.
I lost strength and energy, and could not see things clearly. My children were all at work, so I didn't want to disturb them. Then I called my sister and said, “I'd like to tell you that Master has cleansed my breast, and all the bad things in it were taken out. I feel fine, but just lack strength.”
My sister came after a while and remarked: “You look pale. Master purified your body according to your ability of tolerance. It’s a good thing. Don’t think too much, just follow the path arranged by Master.”
The next day, my daughter came to take care of me. After seven days, my strength and energy came back, so my daughter went back to work. My breast then bled some more. I knew that Master had suffered the pain for me. I am grateful for His compassion!
I recovered within a short time. Ordinary people saw me and said: “It's so great for you to practice Falun Dafa. You bled so much, but you did not undergo surgery, didn't take medicine or injections, and you recovered so rapidly. It is truly amazing!”
Now I clarify the truth and validate the Fa by telling people about my recovery.
Dafa Is Extraordinary
My son had been persecuted in a labor camp because he cultivated Dafa. The persecution caused great harm to our family. My family didn't want me to practice Dafa out of fear.
Although I didn't give up, I didn't cultivate diligently and made some mistakes. Now, I firmly follow the path arranged by Master. I passed the illness tribulation without causing any loss to the family, nor interrupting the work and life of my son and daughter-in-law. Besides, the doctor said that the tumor had extended to my lungs but I haven't coughed, and I breathe normally. Dafa is so extraordinary!
Now, my daughter and daughter-in-law both believe in Dafa and support my cultivation. My daughter-in-law is also very good about reminding me to send righteous thoughts. Our family lives in harmony.
I will cherish everything Master has given me, and use the second life He gave me to assist Him in awakening the conscience of people. I will follow the path Master arranged and do the three things well.
