My Homes Were Protected from Water Damage

(Minghui.org) We had a very cold winter in 2020. The water pipes on the fourth floor of our apartment building burst and water ran everywhere in the building. When the woman living next door came to check if water had leaked into my apartment, she was very surprised to see it was dry as usual, with only two small stains on the wall and a tiny bit of water under the wardrobe.

I knew in my heart that my apartment was not affected thanks to the protection of Falun Dafa.

In another instance last summer, the area of my other house experienced a severe storm at night. My neighbor’s house next door was badly flooded due to the heavy rain and blocked sewer caused by road construction. The mother and daughter couldn’t sleep at all as they had to keep removing the water.

My daughter rushed in the next morning, “Mom, are you okay? I couldn’t sleep the whole night, worrying if the backyard was flooded,” she said anxiously. But when I checked the house, the backyard was not flooded at all.

Not long after that, the house was put on the government’s demolition list. The two houses on either side of mine had attics just like mine. While they managed to have their attics counted towards the total area of their houses, due to their connections, I didn’t do so and didn’t get any compensation for our attic space.

Although I said that I would not fight to have our attic space counted, I still felt we were treated unfairly and couldn’t let it go for a while. I later understood from Dafa’s teaching that I am not entitled to things that are not mine, and I should just go with the flow. I let go of my attachments to self interest and thank Master, founder of Dafa, for this opportunity to improve myself.
