Turning Misfortune Into a Good Fortune

I started to practise Falun Dafa in May, 2005. At that time, I could not walk because my bones had been fractured in a car accident. Someone who was already practising Falun Gong encouraged me to learn the practice and talked to me about the persecution and why the wicked Chinese Communist Party (CCP) chose to persecute a good thing. I had an anxious desire to learn Falun Gong and wanted to read the related books. Until the government began persecuting Falun Gong in 1999, I had never heard of it or seen it. Only then did I come to know Falun Gong. Every time that I saw someone post "Falun Dafa is good," I felt that Falun Gong must benefit people. Otherwise, why would people persist in practising Falun Gong under the government's terrible persecution?!

After listening to the fellow practitioner's words, I expected the fellow practitioner to bring the Falun Gong book Zhuan Falun the next day. After several days, the fellow practitioner brought the book. I read the entire book non-stop, from 7:00 a.m. until close to 8:00 p.m. After I finished reading, I felt that the book teaches us to be good people. Many principles in the book, which I did not understand before, help people become generous and open-minded after reading the book.

Why did the CCP not allow people to read such a good book? I soon read the book a second time. After reading, I wanted to learn Falun Gong. When the fellow practitioner visited me, I asked about the practice. Very quickly, the fellow practitioner got a music tape for my practise, and I did the exercises that day on the bed.

The fellow practitioner also brought the other Falun Gong lectures for me to read. I eagerly emerged myself in Master's Law every day. My mood was light and spacious and my fractured leg did not hurt. It was true for me that once I finished this book I wanted to read another. Thus, I almost read all of Master's lectures at one time.

As the saying goes, it takes 100 days for fractures to heal, and I was already over fifty years old. Three steel pins had been inserted to hold the fractured bones together. After only two months of practising Falun Gong, I had the three steel pins taken out and walked upstairs and downstairs. Dafa is so amazing, and is such a blessing. I got good fortune because of misfortune. If it were not for the traffic accident, I possibly would have learnt another practice. So far, I have already practised Falun Gong for more than two years. I do not take any medicine or have any diseases. The rhinitis, arthritis, lumbago (e.g., convulsions) and other diseases that I had prior to beginning the practice seemed to just disappear. Falun Dafa's goodness has been known to everyday people. It is inconceivable for the CCP to not allow people to practise something so good. However, determining who is righteous and who is evil is obvious!
