Unconditionally Correcting Myself Based on the Fa
(Minghui.org) When I was hit by a car when riding my bike home on July 1, 2019, I was knocked down and lost consciousness. I woke up in a hospital bed.
I had a fractured pelvis and two big lumps on my head. Although I was dizzy, vomited, and had pain in my left hip, I knew that compassionate Master Li had saved my life and suffered a lot for me. I spent four days in a daze in the hospital bed.
Members of my family, who are also Falun Dafa practitioners, took good care of me. They brought a recording of Master’s Lectures in Guangzhou for me to listen to. Local practitioners also came to see me every day, sent righteous thoughts, and shared their understandings of the Fa. They encouraged me to deny the persecution by the old forces, look inward, and unconditionally correct myself based on the Fa.
With their help, I gradually became more alert and thought: “I am one of Master’s disciples—no one has the right to persecute me. I have a mission to save people. I need to go home and do the three things Master asks us to do.”
I sent righteous thoughts to disintegrate all evil beings and substances that prevented me from going home. I did not treat myself as a patient. I sat up and slowly got out of bed to go to the toilet. I washed. My body recovered a lot.
When the attending doctor came to my room the next day, I asked to be discharged. He agreed. This made me happy, but then I was faced with a test. A doctor from the Department of Infectious Diseases said, “I suspect you have hepatitis C and recommend you have another blood test.” I refused and said I did not have that problem. He tried to persuade me but left when he could not change my mind.
Soon after, the attending doctor returned and suggested that I stay in the hospital and have the blood test. Although I had said I didn’t have this condition, I wavered, debating whether I should do as he suggested. The doctor apparently saw my indecision and stood there, waiting for my reply.
While I hesitated, my sister, a practitioner, arrived. I asked her what I should do. She replied firmly, “Don't have the test done.” The doctor left and the interference was over. It is really dangerous to develop incorrect thoughts.
Since my mother is also a Dafa practitioner, I went to her home for a month to recuperate.
Every day I studied the Fa and did the exercises with fellow practitioners. I felt that my body and mind were bathed in the Buddha light. The bumps on my head slowly shrank and then disappeared. I could walk slowly. Although the process was full of hardships, I felt myself improve step-by-step. My heart was filled with incomparable gratitude to Master. I felt thrilled to be Master’s disciple. I could only repay Master by diligent cultivation and clarifying the truth about Dafa.
Looking Inward and Improving Xinxing
This car accident made me realize the seriousness of cultivation. This incident was not accidental. What caused the old forces to take advantage of my loopholes? I needed to look inward.
One reason could have been karmic debts from previous lives. Another was my xinxing problem, mainly the attachment of sentimentality. My husband made a lot of money last year and began acting recklessly. He had an affair and spent over 100,000 yuan. After I learned what was going on, I advised him to change his behavior and to be good. But I still couldn’t get over what happened. I was often resentful, jealous, and attached to self-interest. I kept rejecting those negative thoughts, but they came back again and again. This back and forth was terrible.
I understood that I felt too much affection for my husband. In fact, he was a pitiful man who was unknowingly hurting himself.
I looked inward while feeling heartbreaking pain and constantly cleared away my cravings for lust and comfort. I kept reminding myself that I was a cultivator, that I should let go of all the human attachments, that I didn't want these feelings and wanted to correct myself based on the Fa. I also sent righteous thoughts, eliminating the interference from the demon of lust.
At home, I took good care of my husband and told him stories with traditional values, such as people seeking revenge after being betrayed because of lust. I hoped they would inspire his righteous thoughts. As my attachments were removed, he also became more honest and did not go out as much. I realized that looking inward unconditionally and correcting oneself with the Fa is the only way to resolve problems.
Clarifying the Truth about Dafa
When I regained consciousness, I told the driver of the car that hit me, an elementary school teacher, the facts about Falun Dafa. I told her that she was very lucky that I was a Falun Dafa practitioner who is protected by Master Li—that was why I was still alive. We practitioners are good people who follow the principles of Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance. I would not demand any compensation from her.
I told her facts about Falun Dafa and asked her to remember the phrases “Falun Dafa is good” and “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” if she was ever in danger. She was touched and agreed to quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its youth organizations.
Later, I told many people how wonderful Falun Dafa is by using my car accident as an example. Nowadays, many people only believe what they see. Through hearing about my experiences, they realized that Falun Dafa practitioners are kind and strong. I had recovered so quickly without medication. They were convinced and couldn’t help but sincerely admire practitioners. They were also willing to quit the CCP.
I then visited practitioners who were suffering from sickness karma. I shared my experiences and encouraged them to deny the old forces' arrangements and firmly believe in Master.
We should let go of all kinds of human attachments, improve ourselves based on the Fa, and advance in cultivation diligently.
