I Began Practicing Falun Dafa After Being Hit by a Car
(Minghui.org) I was hit by a car on my way to work in 2012. The driver helped me up and took me to stand against a tree. She asked me to wait for her while she went to find someone to take me to the hospital. She left, but never returned. I then called my nephew and he took me to the hospital.
Only the left side of my face was injured. I was bleeding, and my left eye was swelled shut. When I looked in the mirror, I suddenly became dizzy.
My wound was cleaned, and I was given an IV. My nephew asked if I wanted to be hospitalized, but I declined since I was not hurt anywhere else except for my face. My nephew then asked me to go to his house.
My nephew and his mother both practice Falun Dafa. My sister-in-law wasn't surprised to see me. She said to me with a smile, “You are here to obtain the Fa.” She asked me to recite, “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” I did as she asked.
I didn't dare look in the mirror, so my nephew checked my face for me, and every time he said, “It's looking better!”
My sister-in-law asked me one day, “Do you want to practice Falun Dafa with me?” I said yes without giving it a thought. I started to read the book Zhuan Falun and did the Dafa exercises with her every day. My face recovered quickly and I didn't have any scars.
I then took a copy of Zhuan Falun home with me. However, I didn’t read it that much, so my sister-in-law took it back. When I visited her again, I took the book back home because I felt secure having it.
After taking the book back and forth several times, my sister-in-law asked, “Do you really want to cultivate? If so, let’s study together.” From then on, I began reading Zhuan Falun and Master’s Collected Fa Teachings with her.
During that time, my sister-in-law and I only focused on studying the Fa and doing the Dafa exercises. My brother also helped me to correct my pronunciations. I was immersed in Dafa and gradually changed myself. I became healthier, and my personality became more open and cheerful.
A year passed quickly. Then, my sister-in-law’s granddaughter was born, and she became very busy. I stopped going to her house to study the Fa, so she helped me join a local Fa-study group. I then entered the group cultivation environment, which laid a solid foundation for my deeper understanding of the Fa principles.
When I attended the 40th anniversary party of my high school graduation, my former classmates were all surprised to see that I looked younger and healthier. They also mentioned I seemed more positive, happy, and easy going. Some commented, “You weren't like this in high school! You were a cold person. You were also sick all the time. What medicine did you take that changed you so dramatically? You are a totally different person!”
I said with a smile, “I practice Falun Dafa now. It has given me a new life.”
