Quick Recovery after Accidents

March 8, 2021 |   By Zihao, a Falun Dafa practitioner in China

(Minghui.org) I was born into a poor family in a rural area. I was introduced to Falun Dafa in 1996. My husband has passed away, and I’ve lived alone ever since. I have a daughter who visits me.

I am nearly 80 now, and I have gone through many tests, always with Master’s protection, and would like to share a few.

Falling in a Ditch

I went shopping for groceries in September of 2019. My legs felt weak that day and as I was crossing a two-foot deep ditch I slipped and fell. I sat on the bank with both legs in the ditch. A motorcyclist stopped to ask if I needed help, but I said I would be okay.

I pulled my legs up and slowly got up on my knees. Both my left calf and left elbow were bruised. I wanted to get home quickly so no one would see that I was injured.

At home, I rinsed my injuries with water. Later I took a shower and noticed a lump on my left hip. All the bruises and the lump recovered in a couple of days.

Another Fall

I fell off a bench while reaching for something on a high shelf on April 14, 2020. My right arm and fingers swelled up and my palm became discolored. I told my daughter about my fall, and she came to see me the very next morning.

She wanted to take me to the hospital, but I refused. She could see that I could take care of myself so she did not insist, but she hired a caretaker for me.

The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) authorities bribed the caretaker to monitor me and collect information from my home. They even wanted her to look through my garbage. They also had my neighbor search my home when I was away. I’d left 3,000 yuan at home, which went missing.

I did not resent the caretaker or the neighbor. I treated them with benevolence and tried my best to help them when they had a need. I told them the news I read using the anti-blocking software. They were receptive to it.

The neighbor confessed to me that he was ashamed to have done so many bad things to me. He said that the government treated Falun Dafa practitioners unjustly. The 610 Office directed him to watch me, and he searched my house as soon as I left.

Master Li said:

“I often say that when another person takes advantage of you or causes trouble for you, or when you suffer, you shouldn’t bear a grudge towards that person, because you are practicing cultivation.” (Teaching the Fa at the Conference in Houston)

“Whatever you experience during your cultivation—whether good or bad—is good, for it comes about only because you are cultivating. A cultivator cannot achieve Consummation when laden with human thoughts, laden with karmic debts, or laden with attachments. Gold’s luster increases as it is refined over time. Through righteous thoughts and righteous acts, Dafa disciples are establishing every aspect of their divinity, and are, at the same time, building the cosmos’s future.” (“To the Chicago Fa Conference,” Essentials of Diligent Progress, Vol III)

I remembered Master’s teachings and followed the standard of a practitioner. I treated everyone with kindness.

I explained the facts of Falun Dafa and the principle of what goes around comes around to my caretaker. When cleaning the house, I would do the area near Master’s photo in case she did anything disrespectful to Master. When we ate fruit, I saved the freshest ones for her. Typically, she got her work done in under two hours in the morning and in the afternoon, but I still paid her for the full day.

I sent forth righteous thoughts, did exercises, and studied the Fa every day. My hand got better and better. Three months later, I could use a spoon with no problem or discomfort. Four months later, I could use chopsticks. Five months later, I could write with a brush pen.
