(Minghui.org) I was involved in two serious traffic accidents and miraculously survived both of them.

I was riding a motorcycle on a highway on July 31, 2007, when I was hit from behind by a large bus driving at about 125 kilometers per hour. This information was later provided by the bus driver.

I was thrown three to four meters in the air and landed on the pavement. I froze for a moment, but when I came to my senses I shouted, “Master Li! Master Li!” I sat up and checked my ribs, legs and arms. They were not broken, but there were bruises everywhere.

“You are the first one to survive”

The bus finally came to a halt a hundred meters away. My motorcycle was totaled, while the bus's bumper was severely dented and its right headlight was shattered. A rear tire of the bus burst after the emergency brake was applied. The driver rushed over and asked in a trembling voice, “Are you okay? Let me get you to the hospital.”

I comforted him saying that I was okay. He was very surprised, “How can you be okay in such a serious accident?!”

I said, “Don’t worry. I promise it’s okay!”

The driver was still worried and gave me his insurance information. I told him, “I am a Falun Gong practitioner. Even if something happens, I won’t ask you for compensation. I am truly okay!”

The driver and onlookers were all shocked. One person who lived nearby said, “This place is prone to fatal accidents. As far as I know, you are the first one to survive.”

When I got home, I lay on the bed and fell asleep. I didn't wake up until the fourth day, and that was only because I was hungry. I realized the accident was really life-threatening, and the bruises all over my body looked scary. I thought of Master at that critical moment–He saved me.

A practitioner and I rode our motorcycles hurrying back home after distributing fliers late at night on May 30, 2017. When I passed a V-shaped section of the road, I suddenly felt the motorcycle speeding up by itself, and it went straight to edge of the road. I didn't have time to brake and went down a ravine. I was tossed into the air and landed on a rock.

I shouted, “Master! Master!” and stood up. My motorcycle was four to five meters away from me, and the lights were still on. I pulled out the ignition key and tried to climb up the slope. However, my left leg was injured, and my whole body was wet and cold. I felt nauseous, feverish, and couldn't open my left eye. I wiped my brow with my hand, and it was covered in blood. I knew I might be injured but firmly believed I would be okay. I recited “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.”

I took out a flashlight and found that the slope of the ravine was very steep (nine meters from the top). I started to climb up but couldn’t move further after reaching the halfway point.

The Consequences of My Omissions

A thought then appeared in my mind, “Lie down and rest for a while.” I couldn’t help but lay down and felt like I was about to fall sleep. Suddenly, I woke up and realized my life could be in danger if I fell sleep, and the other practitioner wouldn't be able to find me.

Why did I have another accident, and where did I have omissions in my cultivation? I immediately remembered that I had been visiting my daughter often recently and met my ex-wife several times, which led to all kinds of human attachments such as jealousy, resentment, and lust. It had been half a year, and I still couldn't get rid of all of my attachments. I felt the accident must be related to that.

I finally managed to climb to the top and lay on the side of the road. I called the other practitioner four times and finally got a hold of him. It was very difficult for me to breathe, but I managed to tell him what had happened.

He returned 30 minutes later and helped me to sit up. I relaxed for a while before trying to get on the back of his motorcycle. He told me to hold on tight, not to fall asleep, and keep reciting “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.”

A Struggle of Life and Death

Not long after he started riding, I heard a voice whisper in my ear, “You should be buried in front of your mother’s grave.” I didn’t pay it any mind, and the voice repeated, “Buried in front of your mother’s grave.”

My mother passed away less than a year ago. I said in my heart, “I will not die. Master will protect me!”

When we passed the first village, I felt very uncomfortable and couldn't go any further. The practitioner drove me to my sister’s home. I had to be lifted off the motorcycle and helped into the house. My sister was shocked and could hardly recognize me. My face was covered in blood, and my voice had changed. My brother-in-law wanted to call for an ambulance, but I refused. “I don’t need to go to the hospital. I will recover in a few days. I am okay!”

My sister helped me change clothes. I was on the bed, unable to sit up or lie down. I was breathless and very uncomfortable. Soon I heard another voice whisper in my ear, “The spleen is broken.”

I replied, “If my spleen is broken, Master will give me a new one!” Soon afterward, my spleen did not hurt anymore.

My brother-in-law was curious and went to the scene of the accident with a few people from the village. They saw the ravine with the long steep slope and a stream at the bottom, full of large stones. They all felt it was incredible how I could have survived and also climb back up to the road.

I lay on the bed at home and couldn’t move. My neck was swollen thicker than my head, my voice became high-pitched, and my urine had blood in it. I couldn't read the Fa, so I listened to Master’s lectures.

I tried to get up a few times on the third day but still couldn't. By the fourth day, I no longer had blood in my urine. A practitioner helped me to get out of bed, and I used two sticks to steady myself with great effort. My pelvis was numb and swollen, and I could only drag my left leg when moving around.

I kept walking until noon without rest and was tired and sweaty. A thought of lying down came to mind, and I immediately became vigilant. I kept telling myself not to stop walking. I kept walking until 3 p.m. I tried to practice the Falun Dafa exercises on the fifth day and was able to do most of the movements. Many practitioners visited to encourage me that day.

When I was about to go to bed, I started to lose my breath, and my stomach became bloated. I realized that the old forces wanted to take my life, so I immediately denied the persecution. I got off the bed and listened to one of Master’s lectures. I also did the exercises for an hour and sent forth righteous thoughts before going back to bed.

I got up at 3 a.m. the next morning and did the five sets of exercises. I studied two to three lectures of Zhuan Falun every day and read experience sharing articles from Minghui. I also looked within to get rid of my attachments and improve my xinxing, leaving no excuses for the evil to persecute me.

A practitioner invited me to study the Fa, practice the exercises, and send forth righteous thoughts together at his home. My body got better every day. He asked me whether I could help him hand out truth-clarifying materials a week later, and I agreed.

Reflecting on Myself

I fully recovered within 17 days and went back to the busy routine of helping Master to save sentient beings.

Compassionate Master protected me and gave me a second life. When the accidents happened, I sincerely called out for Master's help. He is always protecting us and truly cherishes us more than ourselves!

I now have a better understanding of Dafa cultivation after these experiences.

First, things can take a fundamental turn no matter what kind of tribulations or conflicts we have, as long as we completely believe in Master and the Fa. When we encounter tribulations, it can really show our degree of faith. We often say we believe in Master, but do we truly look within as He has told us to do? If we cannot find our attachments, we are not truly looking within.

Master told us,

“‘I’m Li Hongzhi’s disciple, I don’t want other arrangements or acknowledge them’—then they won’t dare to do that. So it can all be resolved. When you can really do that, not just saying it but putting it into action, Master will definitely stand up for you.” (Teachings Given on Lantern Festival Day, 2003)

While facing great tribulations, if a practitioner can sincerely ask for Master’s help, all these tribulations will vanish.

Master also said,

“If he is able to let go of life and death, he is a god; if he isn’t able to let go of life and death, he is human.” (“Teachings at the Conference in Australia”)

During cultivation, we should discard the fear of death, which is just like taking off a piece of clothing. If we can achieve that, the evil won’t dare to threaten us anymore. Our longing for eternal life is just the selfish notion and attachment to fame and self-interest in this world. Only when we can cultivate ourselves by following Dafa’s standards to become selfless, altruistic beings can we truly become eternal beings.
