(Minghui.org) Sister Wang had a stroke that resulted in half of her body being paralyzed, heart failure, and high blood pressure prior to the 2020 Chinese New Year. Doctors advised the family to take her home and prepare for her funeral. I visited her and told the family that only Falun Dafa could save her. The family recited “Falun Dafa is good” and “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” into her ears. As of now, sister Wang has recovered from the stroke and is able to take care of herself.
Sister Wang and her husband Mr. Gong had helped me a lot in the 1970s when I, a high school student from the city, was forced to do hard labor in a remote village during a political campaign launched by then Chinese Communist Party (CCP) leader Mao Zedong. I returned home a decade later after Mao died and the political campaign ended. We continued our friendship, and I visited them every once in a while.
I started practicing Falun Dafa (also called Falun Gong) in 1998, after witnessing how my mother-in-law had benefited greatly from it. After the persecution started in 1999, I visited and told the couple the principles of Falun Gong, its health benefits, how it had spread throughout the world, and how much I had personally benefited from the practice. I also told them how the CCP fabricated stories to frame Falun Gong, including the staged Tiananmen Square self-immolation.
They believed me but later became afraid that someone could inform the authorities that some practitioners and I had told the villagers about Falun Dafa. As their attitude changed, they were no longer protected by Dafa. In the following years, their daughter, parents of their son-in-law, and sister Wang suffered severe illnesses, costing them hundreds of thousands of yuan.
Ordinary People View Things from Human Perspective
I visited her in June 2019 when sister Wang was very sick. In January 2020, sister Wang had a stroke that paralyzed half of her body and caused her heart failure and high blood pressure. After the family spent more than 200,000 yuan in a hospital, doctors told her family to take her home and prepare for the funeral. I decided to pay her a visit when I heard of this.
Before setting out, I thought about what had happened to their family and why I had learned of the matter. I believed it was because I still hadn’t done a good job in clarifying the truth about Dafa. When I talked to villagers in the past, I didn’t consider it from the perspective of others, whether it would bring harm or wrongly influence someone. They are all ordinary people, and it was normal for them to be afraid. As a cultivator, I have to consider the effect of my actions on others. In any conflict, I should first look within.
Recalling the time when I visited the village, I remembered that I didn’t make the truth clear to the Gong family. Maybe I talked about things that were too high or mysterious, or I failed to clean up and disintegrate notions of atheism, evolution, and deviated modern concepts. Many times, I mentioned the truth and facts in a lighthearted chat so they weren’t serious about it and only took them as fairy tales. They didn’t truly believe in the power of Dafa.
Establishing a Righteous Attitude
I don’t want them to suffer this tribulation, and I wanted to give them a chance to establish a righteous attitude toward Dafa. Maybe Master was giving me an opportunity to correct the situation.
I brought with me many fliers, including stories about Dafa’s health benefits and people being protected from harm after reciting the two phrases. It was the peak of the coronavirus pandemic, so I also had stories of residents and healthcare workers in Wuhan who had escaped death by reciting the two phrases.
On my way, I asked Master for help in my heart, “Please help sister Wang! Please give your disciple and sister Wang a chance to correct their mistakes.”
When I arrived at Gong’s house, I was surprised to see a black coffin in the living room. I sent forth righteous thoughts and at the same time told the family to move the coffin away because there was still hope for sister Wang.
I gave fliers to sister Wang’s family members and asked them to support her by reciting the two phrases, “Falun Dafa is good” and “Truthfulness Compassion Forbearance is good.” They were moved by my visit and my sincerity and agreed to do so.
In the bedroom, Mr. Gong was moisturizing her lips with a cotton swab. Every time he turned to her after dipping the swab in the bowl of water, he recited the two phrases into her ear.
I was moved by this scene. I pressed my hands together in front of my chest and thanked Master for his compassion.
Keeping in Touch
In the following months, the family told me of her progress. “Sister Wang can eat now,” they said. “She can get out of the bed and stand up by herself.” Later, they told me, “She can speak again!” and finally “She enjoyed this holiday travel very much!”
I was happy for the Gong family as they resumed a harmonious life. Falun Dafa saved sister Wang without costing her a penny. It is a testimony to the power of Falun Dafa.
Thinking of the story of sister Wang, I understood that all was done by Master, while the disciple just had a thought to save her. I learned that in cultivation, the disciple must improve before sentient beings would benefit from the practitioners’ effort. In the past, I often looked outwards and always thought that others were in the wrong. This time, I looked inward, found the problem within me, and wanted to correct it. Only then did the power of Falun Dafa display itself.
