(Minghui.org) I am a dance teacher at a college in Henan Province. All I’ve ever wanted to do is teach dance. After teaching for 20 years, I remained at the same level as when I started, while many of my contemporaries were already one or two levels above me. On the surface, I felt that that I had let go of the attachments to money, position, and benefits, but by looking deeper, I saw that laziness and a reluctance to face challenges were holding me back.
To get promoted at my school, you have to write and publish two research papers. These papers are complicated, and many of my colleagues paid someone else to write their papers for them. As a cultivator, I thought it dishonest to have someone else write my papers, so I never published any papers and never got promoted.
I thought that this might lead people to think ill of Dafa, so I decided I would write them. After researching how to structure and write a thesis, I realized that it was not as difficult as I’d thought. I decided to write about my 20 years of teaching dance.
Doing the research, no matter what information I was looking for, the first book I picked up and the first page I opened to would be the right one. One after another, ideas just appeared in my mind and I wrote them down. Three hours later, I had finished a thesis of 2,500 words.
I told my husband that I’d finished my thesis after he came home from work. He didn’t believe me until he saw it. Master helped me and gave me the wisdom to write it.
If we do what Master asks, live by the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion- Forbearance, and not mistake ourselves for ordinary people, Master will provide us with abilities and demonstrate the amazing power of Dafa.
In 2013, I was on the way to a physical exam arranged by my employer when I encountered a construction zone. There were two metal rods were in the middle of the street, the top one near my head and the bottom one near my feet. I tried to jump between them but as I cleared the bottom rod, I hit my head on the top one.
I knew that, as a Dafa disciple, I would be alright. I began reciting, “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” I felt something dripping down my face and realized that my nose was bleeding. I tilted my head back and felt the blood drain down my throat.
In the bathroom, I quickly wiped away the blood and looked in the mirror. My nose was broken and mashed to the left side of my face. I was always telling people about the greatness of Dafa and helping them quit the Chinese Communist Party. How would people react when they saw my nose squashed like this?
I said to Master, “Master, I have encountered a difficult situation. What shall I do?” A thought appeared in my head to fix it myself. I knew Master was helping me.
I looked at myself in the mirror and popped my nose back into place. It looked normal again and the bleeding stopped. I cleaned myself up and went for the physical.
When I arrived at the clinic, I was dizzy and couldn’t stand up straight but I felt an energy field covering me. I couldn’t hear what the doctor and others were saying, even though they were really close to me. I felt ill and wanted to lie down.
A voice said, “Quick, lie down. Once they take you to the hospital, you will be more comfortable.” But my main consciousness was strong and I was determined: “I will not lie down. How could I save people if I went to the hospital?” I repeatedly recited, “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good. Master save me.”
The doctor called my name twice, but I didn’t hear it. She asked me what was wrong. I said I was okay and lay down for the exam. After it was done, I sat up and the invisible energy field was lifted; I could hear them talking again.
The entire event took half an hour. Looking back, I am amazed. Merciful Master protected me and gave me the courage and strength to overcome a major test. We are so honored to be Master’s disciples during this Fa-rectification period.
