Looking Within Changed Everything

Aug. 15, 2021 |   By a Falun Dafa practitioner in Hubei Province, China

(Minghui.org) I recently visited an elderly practitioner, and noticed that there was something wrong with her as soon as she opened the door. Even though she’s in her seventies, she’s always been energetic, moved quickly and her voice is firm and loud. But that day she had difficulty sitting upright, was quiet, and only smiled a few times.

I asked her what happened. She stood up slowly and painfully. While holding onto a chair, she told me about an accident the day before. She and another practitioner traveled by motorcycle to pick leaves for rice dumplings. The motorcycle slid sideways. She fell off, and the motorcycle landed on top of her. The pain was so bad that she couldn’t do any housework.

Seeing how she had to tilt her body, hunch her back, and walk slowly, I told her, “You will be fine. Look within, you will be able to do things by yourself soon. Let’s study the Fa together.” I suggested going upstairs where it was quieter, but changed my mind after seeing how she had to drag her right leg with her hands.

After studying the Fa and sending forth righteous thoughts, she invited me to come study the Fa with her for the next few days. I said, “Sure! I’ll come every day.” She said that she knew what caused this tribulation.

She said that the day before the accident, she read some experience sharing articles, which triggered her memory of how her husband had hurt her in the past. She cried and sang (she loved singing when she was young). Her strong sentiments were taken advantage of by the old forces. Despite the rain, she still decided to go pick leaves to wrap rice dumplings in, so that she could share them with her friends.

After realizing her attachment, she said, “This is interference. I need to clarify the truth to more people. I beg Master [Master Li Hongzhi, the founder of Falun Dafa] for his help. I can’t waste my time.”

The next day, I went straight to her home after work. She opened the door with a big smile. I asked in surprise, “Are you okay now?” She said “Yes,” and walked back and forth to show me how easily she could move her legs.

I laughed, and said, “What a change! You looked listless yesterday, but so lively today! Master is great!” (I knew that Master had helped her.) She showed me her bruises, and told me more about the accident. She said she had begged for Master’s help since the accident, and let go of her resentment caused by her husband’s abusive behavior.

During my third visit, she told me that her son and grandson had come to see her upon hearing about the accident. Her son insisted on taking her to get an X-ray at a hospital. She told him not to worry, and showed him how well she could walk while saying, “Look! I’m fine! I’m fine!” They all laughed. Another grandson who works in another town called her after the accident. She told all her children to thank Master for protecting her, and to say, “Falun Dafa is great. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is great!”

This practitioner doesn’t know how to write, but she asked me to write down her experience and send it to the Minghui website. She said, “I have to share this experience. I wouldn’t have made it without Master’s help!”
