(Minghui.org) I am 81 years old and have practiced Falun Dafa since 1997. I live alone, which gives me more time to clarify the truth about Dafa.

I got up to do the Dafa exercises on the morning of February 1, 2021, when I noticed that my tongue couldn’t move. I was calm, but a voice in my mind told me that I should immediately call my daughter. This alerted me. I thought, “I am protected by Master Li, why should I call my daughter? Can she save me?” I asked Master for help.

I burnt an incense and knelt in front of Master’s picture. As my tongue couldn’t move, I said in my mind, “Master, please help me. Don’t allow anything to seal my tongue. I use my tongue to study the Fa and talk to people to save their lives. If I did anything wrong, I will look within. Master, please strengthen me and don’t let the evil entities persecute me for whatever reason.”

I went to bathroom and looked in the mirror. There was a pimple around the lone tooth under my tongue.

I took it as false sign and decided to study the Fa. I walked to my bedroom, sat down, and began to read Lecture Four in Zhuan Falun. I was determined to read it aloud. At first I couldn’t read the Fa clearly. But, a few sentences later, I heard a pop sound, as if a balloon popped, and some tea colored fluid came out of my mouth. Then, my tongue could move. I could talk again!

I was joyful like a kid and pressed hands in front of Master’s picture with tears in my eyes, “Master, I am fine now! Thank you, Master!”

I immediately looked inward to find what I had done wrong. I reflected on the things and words of the past two days and figured out why.

My daughter-in-law visited me on the previous night. Her mother had suddenly passed away on January 20 without any warning symptoms. She couldn’t bear it and cried. She also told me that her mother had believed in a god for many years, and used to be in good health.

To comfort her, I went along with ordinary people’s belief and said to her that the god her mother believed in was a good one. This brought me the tribulation.

Looking back at how I handled the tribulation, I didn’t take it as a sickness, and didn’t feel any fear. My first thought was to ask for help from Master.

Master has protected me numerous times in my 24 years of cultivation practice. I understand that Master compassionately shouldered so much karma for me.

I am now 81 years old and enjoy good health. I can ride a bicycle to different places to talk to people about Dafa. I know I am nothing without Master. Thank you Master!

I also want to remind elder practitioners that we should ask Master for help when we are in trouble. Some older practitioners said they didn’t ask Master for help because they didn’t want to bother Master. This is a human notion.

Master came here to find us and bring us back home. Master has told us to call on him for help when we can’t bear the tribulation. Whether you remember to call on Master for help reflects how much you trust in Master and the Fa.
