(Minghui.org) My husband and I had planned to go out to distribute flyers and put up posters about Falun Dafa one evening. That day, however, I suddenly felt physical discomfort and had a feeling of uneasiness. I became sleepy during group Fa-study that afternoon and couldn’t concentrate during the global sending forth righteous thoughts at 6:00 p.m. I fell asleep and skipped the other three times to send righteous thoughts. I could barely get out of bed, and my head and body felt heavy. These symptoms reminded me of a stroke.

When I tried to sit down and study the Fa, I was upset and felt drowsy. My husband asked if we should still go out that evening. I impatiently replied, “How can I go out like this!”

I then remembered Master Li Hongzhi’s (Falun Dafa’s founder) teachings from Zhuan Falun, the main text of the practice:

“Yet one day he suddenly seemed to have the symptoms of a stroke and fell to the ground. He felt that he could not move and as though his four limbs were out of commission. He was sent to a hospital for emergency treatment. Afterward, he was able to walk again. Think about it, everyone: How could one walk around and move both arms and legs again so quickly after having a stroke? Instead, he blamed Falun Dafa for making him go wrong. He did not think about it: How could he recover so quickly from a stroke?” (Lecture Six, Zhuan Falun)

The individual appeared to experience symptoms of a stroke because Master was purifying his body to help him enlighten faster. With poor enlightenment quality, however, he thought that he could not move, as if his limbs were no longer working, and believed that he had a stroke.

I looked within and realized that the abnormal symptoms I was experiencing were due to karma being eliminated, and it was a test of whether or not I would still go out that night to distribute Dafa flyers.

With this new understanding on the teachings of Dafa, I smiled and told my husband, “This is a test for me to resolve, that is why my body feels uncomfortable. They are all actually tests.”

As soon as I finished talking, the uncomfortable feeling disappeared and we went out to distribute the flyers as planned.
