Master’s Benevolent Care Gives Us the Best of Everything
(Minghui.org) My husband and I met in 1995 when he had just started practicing Falun Dafa (also known as Falun Gong). He knew about the preciousness of Dafa. He gave me the book Zhuan Falun, and I embarked on my own journey of cultivation and returning to my original “True Self.”
My Husband's Grim Prognosis
My husband fell off a truck while working one day in May 2019, and was taken to the hospital. Upon hearing about the accident, my sister-in-law (also a Falun Dafa practitioner) and I hurried to the hospital. My unconscious husband was in an intensive care unit with several tubes attached to his body.
I was scared when I first saw him. I took his hand and told him not to be afraid. I asked him to recite “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” in his heart. But he was unresponsive, no matter what I said. I begged Master Li to save him.
My health was not good before my husband’s accident. I had blood in my urine, and then started to have back pain, and I couldn't sleep. My lower abdomen felt like a piece of ice. I felt sick and had no appetite.
When my symptoms were pronounced, I couldn’t practice the exercises or even open my eyes. This incorrect physical state lasted half a year. My husband was now also in a bad state. I felt that the evil forces were coming to take our lives.
The doctor said that there was blood stasis in the right hemisphere of my husband’s brain, which prevented the left side of his body from moving. He recommended a craniotomy, but said that he was not sure if my husband would wake up after the operation. My husband had already had skull surgery due to a car accident a few years prior.
I worried that he might not be able to survive it again. The surgery would also cost an enormous amount of money that we did not have. The owner of the truck and my husband's boss should have been responsible for my husband’s treatment, but we couldn’t locate the owner, and my husband’s boss said he didn’t have the money.
I didn’t know what to do. I spoke to one of my sister-in-laws to see what she thought. She said that her mother-in-law once fell from a tree and faced the same predicament as my husband. The surgical treatment cost hundreds of thousands of yuan but her mother-in-law remained in a vegetative state afterwards and passed away ten years later. I decided to take my husband home and hoped we would be lucky. The next day, however, I spent more than 1,200 yuan to move my husband to a hospital in our area.
Fellow practitioners learned about the accident and brought an MP3 audio player to let my husband listen to Master Li’s lectures. We also sent forth righteous thoughts as a group. My husband stayed in the intensive care unit for four days, and was in a comatose state. But the doctor said, “He is out of danger. He won’t die, but he won’t fully recover either. He may remain in a vegetative state in the future.” This made all my family members extremely worried.
A Miracle Recovery!
In desperation, I could only beg Master to save us. Master said:
“...if our righteous thoughts are very strong, then we’re in line with a law in the cosmos, and this law holds in both the old cosmos and the new one: a being’s choice is up to him, even if he made some kind of vow in history. At critical moments it’s still up to him what he wants to do. And this goes for things that are positive and negative--it’s the case for both.” (“Teaching the Fa at the 2002 Fa Conference in Philadelphia, U.S.A.” in Collected Fa Teachings, Vol. II)
I asked Master to give us an opportunity to turn this bad thing into a good thing, have my husband recover, and demonstrate Dafa’s miraculous power. I firmly believe that Master (and Dafa) are omnipotent. Dafa practitioners are here to validate the Fa, and I would never accept such persecution of my husband by the old forces.
My elder sister (also a practitioner) and I recited Master’s Fa every day:
“Zhen Shan Ren—three sacred words have boundless Fa powersFalun Dafa is good—true thoughts alter all disasters”(“The Source Of All Fa” in Hong Yin IV)
I was finding things very difficult. I couldn’t walk or even pick up my purse. My elder sister cooked for me every day and took care of me. At that time, I was very thin, and my face looked gaunt. I didn’t want to eat. Even so, I had to go to the hospital to take care of my husband. I felt that I had reached my limit of endurance! I thought of Master’s Fa teaching:
“When you are overcoming a real hardship or tribulation, you try it. When it is difficult to endure, try to endure it. When it looks impossible and is said to be impossible, give it a try and see if it is possible. If you can actually do it, you will indeed find: ‘After passing the shady willow trees, there will be bright flowers and another village ahead’” (Lecture Nine in Zhuan Falun)
About ten days later, I dreamed of two large piles of flowers, a type of flower that bloomed in the snow in early Spring. I knew that Master was encouraging me to be firm and tenacious! My heart was much brighter, and my husband’s health was also improving.
On the twenty-first day, the doctor discharged my husband from the hospital. At that time, he couldn’t move the left side of his body at all. He didn’t use the oxygen tube, urinary catheter, or nasal feeding tube. Although his eyes could open, he could not blink or see things clearly. He could only say one or two words at a time.
Several practitioners came to my home to study the Fa and send forth righteous thoughts with us, so that my husband could listen to us reading Zhuan Falun. At other times, my husband listened to Master’s lecture recordings.
Just a few days later, I was surprised to find that he could move the left side of his body, and he gradually began turning over by himself! My fellow practitioners and I were very happy. His condition improved every day. He was soon able to sit up and study the Fa. After another two weeks, he could stand up and walk while holding onto something.
Naysayers Turn Into Believers!
My niece’s friend is a doctor, who said that even if my husband got better, he would remain permanently bedridden. One day after my husband had been home for weeks, my niece came to our home and was stunned, “He was able to get out of bed for dinner by himself! Wow, my gosh! This is great!”
My husband and I went for a walk one day, and ran into a neighbor. The woman saw us and said in surprise, “Is he recovered?! This shows that good is rewarded with good!” When I returned to my mother’s village, my relatives heard that my husband could walk, and everything was alright. They were all excited and amazed!
This accident cost us nearly 30,000 yuan. My husband’s elder brother, who did not practice Dafa, provided 15,000 yuan during my husband’s hospitalization. When we first returned home from the hospital, he suggested seeking compensation from my husband’s boss. This year he mentioned the compensation again.
I said, “I heard that my husband’s boss was involved in another accident, and a worker died in his truck! He’s in trouble. If we ask him for money, he may be forced to hang himself!” The elder brother then recanted, “Then let’s be good people, we won’t ask for the money!”
My husband is doing great now. Moreover, my health is back to normal. I give thanks to all the local practitioners for their selfless help, and am also grateful for the practitioners in our Fa study group who went through this most difficult time with us!
“Cultivation depends on one’s own efforts, while the transformation of gong is done by one’s master.” (Lecture One in Zhuan Falun)
Human language cannot express my gratitude to Master. It is compassionate and great Master who has given us the best of everything!
