(Minghui.org) In the past 10 years, I experienced stroke-like symptoms twice. In both cases, I firmly believed in Dafa and passed the tests of illness karma.
A practitioner in my area was moving to the south. She asked me to copy the Dafa books onto a USB drive for her. I promised her I would do it. However, four days before her departure, I suddenly felt dizzy and couldn’t control my hands and feet. I had difficulty speaking, eating, and walking.
I was the one who introduced Dafa to this practitioner, so I knew her address. On the day before her departure, I knew she was leaving the next day and couldn’t bring her Dafa books on the flight. My thought was that I must bring her the USB drive with the Dafa books so she could study the Fa and do the exercises without any interference.
My sister, upon seeing my situation, wondered how I could go out the door. I told her, “I am fine. I must get this USB to a fellow practitioner.” I slowly walked out the door, held the handrails, and went downstairs. If I didn’t hold the handrails, it felt like my whole body was swaying when taking just one step forward. I asked Master to strengthen my righteous thoughts and disintegrate any evil interference and persecution. I should never damage the image of Dafa practitioners.
With Master’s help, my body stopped swaying. I slowly walked to a bus stop and got on the bus. An elderly couple with a Shanghai dialect sat in the row in front of me. I didn’t want to miss this chance, although I couldn’t speak clearly. So I smiled and talked to the couple slowly, “It’s a predestined relationship for us to meet. Please remember, ‘Falun Dafa is good; Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.’ I wish you the best!” They were very happy and wished me the same.
After I got off the bus and waved good bye to the couple, I was able to walk forward, and not as slowly as before. When I arrived at the practitioner’s home, she was very happy to see me. I asked her, “Do you notice anything wrong with me?” She replied, “Nothing is wrong; you look the same as usual.” I told her, “I have been experiencing sickness karma the last three days. Master strengthened me along the way here and helped me eliminate the interference of sickness karma quickly.” The fellow practitioner was very touched, “It’s great to have Master and Dafa.”
On my way back home, I decided to walk, instead of taking a bus. I bought two VCD players for fellow practitioners, and walked to my sister’s home. Upon arrival, my sister and brother-in-law saw that I was holding a box in my hand and walking happily. My brother-in-law, who doesn’t practice Falun Dafa, said, “It’s amazing. You were swaying when you left home, but you're normal upon returning. It’s inconceivable! Dafa is wonderful!”
Master Also Helped Me With Another Sickness Tribulation
There was another time when the evil took advantage of my loopholes to interfere with and persecute me. It was because I was lost in emotion after going through a divorce. I couldn't let go. I had developed vanity and low self-esteem. It occurred during the new year. I experienced symptoms like a high fever, a bleeding nose, and numbness in my arms and legs. I couldn’t speak clearly, and I couldn’t remember the Fa. I tried to study the Fa, but I couldn’t make a sound. I didn’t know how to send forth righteous thoughts either. However, I had only one thought: that I must not discredit Dafa. Since I couldn’t read the Fa aloud, I sincerely recited, “Falun Dafa is good; Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” After more than an hour of doing so, I gradually returned to normal and could read the Dafa books.
During this tribulation, I kept looking inward and realized that my attachment to sentimentality was taken advantage of. I knew I had to let go of this attachment and be more diligent in cultivation. Otherwise, these human attachments would cause pain and trouble for my family. If these human attachments were not removed, the old forces would take advantage of the loopholes to interfere and persecute me, and cause negative effects for Dafa and saving sentient beings.
Compassionate Master has endured so much for us. I must let go of all attachments and cultivate diligently by following the standards of Dafa, in order to live up to Master’s compassionate salvation.
Master again helped me overcome the sickness tribulation. My full recovery allowed my family to again witness the miraculous nature of Dafa. They are also blessed by Dafa. I remain determined to believe in Master and Dafa, regardless of how evil factors take advantage of my human attachments to interfere with and persecute me. I also helped my relatives overcome their tribulations with righteous thoughts and actions. I will deny all arrangements of the old forces and cultivate Dafa all the way till the end of Fa-rectification and return to my original home with Master.
