Dislocated Knee Joint Heals on Its Own
(Minghui.org) I am a 56-year-old Falun Dafa practitioner. Before I started cultivating in Dafa, I suffered from a variety of illnesses such as gastritis, colitis, ovarian cysts, a chronic sore throat, and digestive problems that only allowed me to consume a liquid diet. I encountered Dafa in 2008, and soon after I started cultivation practice my illnesses were completely healed. My outlook on life improved, and our family became closer and more harmonious.
On the morning of September 19, 2020, I ventured out into the streets and clarified the facts about the persecution of Falun Gong to people I met. By mid-morning, I was walking home to cook lunch when I suddenly tripped and fell. While getting up from the ground, I discovered that my left leg refused to support my weight, and my kneecap was so severely twisted it was now facing the back. After sitting for a moment, I attempted to stand and met with the same results. As I rested, I did a close examination of my surroundings and noticed many screws jutting out from the ground. Leftover from an earlier sewage construction project, the screws originally helped anchor a set of metal fences. Although the fences had been removed, the anchoring screws had been left behind.
I began to recite, “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.”
“The Fa rectifies the Cosmos; the Evil is completely eliminated.” (Essentials for Further Advancement II)
After a while, I hailed a motorcycle taxi to drive me home. The taxi driver was shocked, “Your kneecap is seriously injured right?” I reassured him, “I will be fine!”
The taxi driver dropped me off and I slowly inched my way up the stairs to my second-floor home. After reaching home, I sat cross-legged, sending forth righteous thoughts for half an hour. Then, leaning on the wall for support, I went to the kitchen and started preparing lunch.
My husband and I live with my son, daughter-in-law and two young granddaughters. My husband and I work together to care for our family of six. We handle the grocery shopping, cooking, laundry, cleaning and housework. Soon after, my husband and granddaughters returned home. Seeing my injury, they immediately took over the duty of preparing lunch, while I went to practice the exercises.
After lunch, my husband asked me to seek treatment at the hospital. I refused and told him, “I am a Dafa practitioner under the care of Falun Dafa’s Master.” I had previously fallen from a great height while attempting to retrieve an item and had injured my foot badly in the process. My swollen foot had healed after I practiced the exercises. Having witnessed this miracle earlier, my husband was convinced and stopped pushing me to visit the hospital.
That night, while taking off my clothes for my bath, I discovered a section of my pantyhose had worked its way into my knee joint and had become jammed within it. I managed to remove it after much effort and time. Afterwards, I pleaded before a picture of Falun Dafa’s Master. “Master! Please restore my ability to stand and walk normally! My cousin’s son is getting married and I must attend their wedding tomorrow. My relatives will ask after me if I do not go. Once they hear about my injury, social etiquette demands they drop by to visit. This will be an added burden for many people. Besides, this wedding is a good opportunity to clarify the truth and save more sentient beings.”
The following day, I was able to get out of bed on my own and walk around without any support. It was as if Falun Dafa’s Master had placed an invisible cast on my leg. My leg was straight, and I felt no pain even while walking. I wore a long skirt, which hid my injury.
Although I felt no pain, my leg was so swollen and badly covered in purple and black bruises that even fellow Dafa practitioners were surprised by it. Afterwards I cried in guilt, knowing compassionate Master had chosen to bear this pain on my behalf.
As my kneecap healed, I continued to keep up with the household chores. I hid my condition from my son and daughter-in-law, opting to do most of the household chores when they were out at work, and studied the Fa whenever they were at home. I did this to avoid walking in their presence, and they never discovered my injury.
I redoubled my efforts in studying the Fa, practicing the exercises and searching within myself. However by the fourth day, the pain had become so excruciating that I could hardly bear it. My human attachments surfaced and I contemplated seeking medical help at a hospital to reduce the swelling. At this point, a section from Master’s teachings suddenly surfaced in my mind:
“And at a certain point in time you might be made to doubt whether the teachings are true, whether you have higher energy, whether you are cut out for spiritual practice and can really make progress at it, or whether higher beings really exist. You might be made to go through this in the future, and be given a false impression that leads you to question and doubt all of this. It’s done to see whether you can stay committed.” (The Sixth Talk, Zhuan Falun)
Our faith in Master and Dafa must always be firm, as Master is constantly at our side and knows our each and every thought.
Within eight days, the swelling in my leg had subsided. A month later I took the public bus to our local supermarket and walked around the crowds freely, clarifying the facts in order to save sentient beings.
