Sickness Karma Cannot Block My Path
(Minghui.org) I am 64 years old. I was diagnosed with brain cancer in 1990 and I had surgery to remove a portion of my cerebellum. I was given three months to live. Nevertheless, I survived and in 1996 began to practice Falun Dafa.
A neighbor invited me to learn Falun Dafa. She said it has amazing benefits, and she invited me to learn the exercises with a local group.
My neighbor also said that doing the exercises is not enough, that practitioners also need to read the book Zhuan Falun. She loaned me a copy and said it explains why people get sick. I stopped taking medication and became much healthier.
I was later diagnosed with uterine cancer and had a tumor surgically removed in 1999. The doctor was surprised to see that numerous cancerous cysts had already calcified. I told the doctor that I practice Falun Dafa, and that I believed I would not have survived otherwise.
After I was released from the hospital, I told myself, “Master saved my life again. Now that Dafa is being persecuted, I should tell my story to help people understand how good the practice is.
I began to go out each day to tell others about Falun Dafa. At first I had not fully recovered and had trouble standing up straight. I was blind in the left eye and vision in my right eye was blurry.
I told people: “I was diagnosed with two different cancers in the past. I had brain surgery. I am still alive and able to talk to you. Please remember that Falun Dafa is good and Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!”
The left side of my body became suddenly paralyzed in 2010. I could not walk or lift my left hand. I still persisted in studying the Fa and doing the exercises. As soon as I could walk, I went out to talk to people about Dafa again.
I heard that a fellow practitioner had sickness karma. I went to her home to study the Fa with her. We also shared with each other and strengthened our righteous thoughts. She felt bad for me because it was a long walk for me to get there. However, after seeing how happy she was when I arrived, I continued to visit her regularly.
She was very surprised to see me after a snow storm. “It is so slippery out, you should not have come,” she said. “You are muddy, did you fall?”
“I'm fine! Master saved me,” I replied. “As practitioners, we are one body, so we should help each other. We should believe in Master and believe in the Fa. Let's study the Fa more and go out to save people.”
Getting Up Quickly After Falling Down
I fell three times when I was out spreading the truth one rainy day in October 2011. I was covered in mud, and my back and legs were bruised. I continued to do the exercises and study the Fa, even though putting my legs in the double lotus position hurt. One month later I had fully recovered from the falls.
I still go out every day to clarify the truth and distribute Dafa materials. Sometimes I met people who do not accept the truth and cursed me. I told myself, “Master asked me to save people. I am a Dafa disciple, so I should follow Master's requirements.”
“The world’s miseries endured,One departs the earth a Buddha.”(“Tempering the Will” from Hong Yin)
My attachment to competitiveness arose on a few occasions and I argued with others. I admitted my mistakes after I came home: “Master, I was wrong. I should not fight like an ordinary person. I should control myself.”
I get up every morning at 2:20 a.m. to do the exercises and then study the Fa for two hours. I always study the Fa with my legs in the double lotus position. I think we should be more respectful towards Master and the Fa as Dafa disciples.
I go out in the afternoon to talk to people about Dafa and the persecution. I can now walk steadily by myself and with my back straight. My vision has returned.
I remain diligent in spreading the truth. It is our mission to save people as Dafa disciples. I will follow Master's requirements and follow Master on the path of Fa rectification.
