I Just Listen To Master
(Minghui.org) I’m in my fifties, and I live in the country. I was frail and sick since childhood. I often felt dizzy, had stomach-aches, and frequently caught colds. I began practicing Falun Dafa in the spring of 1999. My various diseases disappeared after a short period of time and I no longer needed any medicine.
The former Chinese Communist Party (CCP) leader began the brutal persecution of Falun Dafa in July 1999. Many practitioners were arrested, sentenced to prison, and sent to labor camps, etc. I was not frightened. I had one thought, “It's not wrong to be a good person and follow the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. I just listen to Master! I firmly believe in Master and Dafa, and I will continue practicing no matter what happens.”
Master has always protected me for more than 20 years, even though I’m not diligent. I’ve had many amazing experiences through which my friends and relatives witnessed the beauty and power of Falun Dafa. They all believe that Falun Dafa is good, and clearly see the true face of the CCP. Several have withdrawn from the Party and its affiliated organizations.
Dangerous Condition is Resolved
I felt pain in my lower abdomen one night in November 2017. I mentioned it to my non-practitioner husband and daughter. My daughter was so anxious that she immediately took me to a hospital. The examination showed that I had uterine fibroids, the largest being eight or nine centimeters in size, along with three or four small ones. The doctor said. “You must have a hysterectomy, otherwise your life may be in danger.”
I wouldn't listen to him. I thought, “How many fellow practitioners whose conditions were more serious than mine are all fine? I am a Falun Dafa practitioner. This is nothing—I won't acknowledge it! Master is taking care of me and I’ll be fine!”
My decision frightened my husband so much that he told my brother, sister-in-laws, and son to talk to me. Seven or eight people came to persuade me to undergo surgery. I thought, “Why is this happening? I've practiced Dafa for several years—aren't I a practitioner?” I wept and told them, “Master will help me. I won't have surgery and I'll be fine.” They continued arguing with me. The doctor said, “Go home and calm down. You can come back when you're ready.” I went home.
When I got home, I picked up Zhuan Falun and tearfully told Master, “Thank you for your painstaking efforts to save me. Please rest assured Master, I will never let you down! I must have not done well in my cultivation. I will study the Fa and look inward.”
I continued studying the Fa, doing the exercises, and sending forth righteous thoughts every day. Three years have passed. I did not have the surgery and I do both housework and physical work.
I have a small flour mill, where I often clarify the truth to customers. I help them quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations, telling them to remember, “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” I feel fine.
Master Protects Me Again
I was working alone at home one day in August 2018. I climbed the ladder to check the water level in our water tank, which is about three meters high. When I came down, I missed a rung and fell. I hit the concrete floor and passed out. When I regained consciousness, I felt a severe heart-piercing pain in my upper body and I couldn't move. I thought, “I am a Falun Dafa practitioner. No evil is worthy of persecuting me. I have to get up!” I slowly opened my eyes and saw my mobile phone a few feet away. I struggled to crawl over and pick it up to call my husband.
More than ten minutes later, my husband came and saw me lying on the ground. He exclaimed, “Are you okay?” He was scared but knew that I would not go to the hospital. He knew that many of my diseases were resolved without any treatments and I wouldn’t be in any danger. He didn’t mention going to the hospital, and he helped me to stand up.
I lost all feeling in my legs, and they were so swollen that I couldn’t bend them. I also couldn’t stand. It felt like my whole body was broken. The pain was so intense that it hurt to breathe. I kept silently reciting Master’s Fa:
“...Each and every barrier must be broken through,And everywhere does evil lurk.Abundant troubles rain down together,All to see: Can you pull through?The world’s miseries endured,One departs the earth a Buddha.”(“Tempering the Will,” Hong Yin, English Translation Version A)
I also remembered that Master said,
“I would say that the physical pains are the easiest thing to endure, as they can be overcome by biting the teeth tightly.” (Lecture Four, Zhuan Falun)
“‘When it’s difficult to endure, you can endure it. When it’s impossible to do, you can do it.’” (Lecture Nine, Zhuan Falun)
Because I had trouble breathing, I slept sitting up. When it hurt too much to sleep, I listened to Master's teachings.
I continued studying the Fa every day. Even though I was in severe pain, I did the exercises. I kept sending forth righteous thoughts to clean up any interfering factors in my dimension. I refused to go along with this persecution—I just followed Master's arrangements.
“We have said that good or evil comes from a person’s spontaneous thought, and the thought at that moment can bring about different consequences.” (Lecture Four, Zhuan Falun)
I had fallen from such a high place to a concrete floor without injury, only swelling and pain caused by the fall. After three days, the swelling in my legs disappeared and I was able to walk slowly. Two weeks later, my body returned to normal.
I've been able to overcome every tribulation and difficulty with Master's protection and blessing. At this critical moment of the Fa-rectification, I can only cultivate diligently. I want to be a qualified Dafa practitioner during the Fa-rectification period so that I can repay Master’s salvation.
