(Minghui.org) I started practicing Falun Dafa in 2003. Eight years ago, I had a conflict with my niece that lasted a few days. When it occurred, I failed to act according to the xinxing standard for Falun Dafa practitioners. A few days later, I lost control while riding an electric tricycle and fell off. I landed on the curb directly on my back.
When I got home, I was in too much pain to sit. I figured that my bones must be broken. Thanks to Master Li, the founder of Falun Dafa watching over me, I was able to do the Falun Dafa exercises a couple of days later. Given my poor enlightenment quality and failing to look within, I couldn’t identify my fundamental attachments. I developed a hunchback.
I joined a daily group Fa study session one day last month. Before we started, one fellow practitioner said something which hurt my feelings. I became angry, but I realized at that moment that it was an opportunity for me to improve my xinxing. I realized I should thank him instead of getting mad at him. This thought made me calm down immediately. I happened to be memorizing the Fourth Talk of Zhuan Falun. No other thought except the Fa came to my mind.
We started studying the Fa. A few minutes later, I suddenly found that my back had straightened. A fellow practitioner said he also noticed the change. All of us were amazed by the power of the Fa. I have since been looking within whenever I run into any incident. My competitive mentality is almost completely gone.
In the past when I experienced discomfort, the first thing that came to mind was that it was an illness. I’ve since changed my mode of thought. I realized that as a cultivator I shouldn’t have any illnesses. Some symptoms lasted a long time and confused me. A fellow practitioner reminded me to look within to find my shortcomings. I tried and tried, and eventually found an incorrect notion. I first acknowledged the illness, then denied it later. It was a problem with my notions.
I now have the understanding that Master is purifying my body and dissolving my karma when I experience discomfort. I no longer think that I have an illness. My discomfort passes quickly.
It is beautiful to look within and measure myself with the standard of a cultivator!
