(Minghui.org) I am a 69-year-old Falun Dafa practitioner. During the past 20 years of my cultivation, there have been many ups and downs.

Hit by a Car

I was riding home on my scooter on the afternoon of July 5, 2020, when it started to drizzle. Since I was almost there, I didn’t stop for shelter.

As it really started to pour, a car drove up on my left side and hit me. I heard a loud sound and lost consciousness. After some time, I felt cold raindrops on my face. I came to, but I could not open my eyes.

I knew a car had hit me. Immediately, I thought to myself, “I am a cultivator. I am all right. Master, please help me.” I attempted to get up twice but couldn’t. The third time, I shouted, “Master, save me!”

My eyes suddenly opened. I moved my arms and legs, and they did not hurt. The back of my head hurt, and I felt a large bump there. Two men stepped out of the car.

The younger one asked, “Are you okay, Ma’am? Let me call an ambulance!”

“No need,” I said. “I am a Falun Dafa practitioner, and I have my master’s protection, so there’s no need to panic.”

I was thrown 10 feet, and my scooter was another 10 feet further away. The men wanted to preserve the scene, but I said, “Don’t worry about the scene, as I am not going to go after you. You can help me pick up my things and my scooter.”

The older man said, “You are indeed a good person and you are very lucky! Are you really okay?”

I took a few steps and said, “Yes, I am okay. But wait a minute before you go. I want to talk to you.” The accident brought us together, and Master saved me. I knew I had to tell them about Falun Dafa so they could be saved, too.

I said, “So many bad things have happened in our country recently. The pandemic is not over yet, and everyone wants to be safe. Have you heard about denouncing the Chinese Communist Party (CCP)?” They said they had not, but both admitted to joining the CCP youth organizations.

I said, “You can denounce the CCP in your heart, and I can help you with the rest. Buddha and God will know your intention. They will protect you.” Both of them denounced the CCP. As we parted, I asked them to remember “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.”

They said, “You are truly a good person. Have a safe trip home.”

On my way home, I thought about how Master had just saved my life. Thinking about how Master had done so much for me, my tears added to the rain that covered my face.

After changing into dry clothes, I burned incense in front of Master’s portrait and kowtowed nine times. My husband saw me crying. I told him what had happened. I said I would not have lived to see him again without Master’s protection.

Master said:

“Every moment in your life is part of your spiritual journey, and at every moment I am looking after you.” (“Another Stern Warning,” Team Yellow Translation)

This was a wake-up call for me. Upon reflection, I realized my cultivation progress has been too slow.

I knew many human attachments still needed to be eliminated, such as the desire for comfort, vanity, competitiveness, feelings of superiority, and jealousy. I dug deep and purged them from my thoughts.

My Husband’s Health

A few days after my accident, my husband complained of a backache. I suggested he recite “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.”

The next morning, his hands felt weak, and one side of mouth drooped. He wanted to go to the hospital. I thought, “He is not a practitioner, so I should take him if that is what he wants.”

The test results indicated a cerebral infarction, kidney stones, and high blood sugar. My husband was frightened.

Master said:

“...with one person practicing, the whole family benefits...” (Teaching the Fa at the Fa Conference in Australia)

“When your friends or family suffer, are you moved? How do you weigh these things? Being a practitioner is just so difficult!” (Lecture Eight, Zhuan Falun)

My husband is a Falun Dafa supporter and helps me whenever he can with my Dafa projects. I thought he would be fine. Perhaps what happened to him was actually aimed at me, as there was something I needed to improve on. I would be lying if I said my heart did not move at all.

I said to my husband, “Don’t worry. You do what you need to do, but remember that Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” He said he would, and from the tone of his voice, I knew he meant it wholeheartedly.

The doctor said we should have come sooner, as it had been more than 12 hours since the onset of my husband’s symptoms. The only thing they could do was to keep him stable. The doctor said my husband would be lucky if he didn’t deteriorate. I thought, “What you say doesn’t count—Master Li will decide his fate.”

The next morning, my husband had feeling in his legs. He told me he had tingling sensations in his legs three times the night before. He could walk and his face looked normal again. The attending physician was surprised at how quickly my husband recovered.

I knew Master had helped him.

The physician said, “Your husband’s blood sugar is on the high side. Both of you receive a government pension, so if he were diagnosed with diabetes, you would be an extra 6,000 yuan a year for medical expenses.”

The physician went on to say, “You can give him a sugary drink tomorrow morning, and his sugar will go up and we can diagnose him with diabetes.”

I thought: “This must be a test. As a Dafa practitioner, I cannot be greedy.”

I asked my husband his opinion on this. He said, “If my sugar is not high enough, I would rather not get that 6,000 yuan and would rather not ask for diabetes.”

I said, “You’re right; we don’t want the money or diabetes.”

After 10 days in the hospital, my husband wanted to go home. At home, I asked him, “What do you think about the diabetes?” “I don’t think I have it,” he said. We checked it before and after he ate. His numbers were normal.

Our neighbors commented that my husband looked pretty good and that he hardly limped at all.

He now listens to Master’s teachings often and recites, “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.”

Master said:

“...everyone in the world was part of my family.” (Fa-Lecture During the 2003 Lantern Festival at the U.S. West Fa Conference)

“...all human beings have come here for the Fa...” (“Teaching the Fa at the 2004 Western U.S. Fa Conference,” Collected Fa Teachings, Vol. V)

From this incident, not only did my xinxing improve, but Master also lead my husband to the path of cultivation. We are grateful for everything Master has done for us.
