Tales From the Practice of Medicine: It Was Not I Who Cured His Illness

[PureInsight.org] One day at noon-time, I heard a knock on the door. It was someone I didn’t know. He looked to be in his fifties. This person told me that someone had recommended we meet. I asked him what the problem was, and he said his whole body ached; it had been that way for many years, nobody could find the cause, and it had become even worse recently. He had tried Chinese medicine, acupuncture, naprapathy, and massage, but none of them worked. He could not describe his suffering. I asked him if he still ached at that moment. He said yes and he said that was the reason why he had traveled so far to find me.

I had met a similar patient before whose whole body ached without reason. That previous patient would remember the wrongdoings he did in the past and murmur, “Retribution, retribution,” when his body ached. Although, I didn’t know what the retribution was about at that time, I tried all kinds of methods to relieve his pain. However, after a while, I would hear him crying again. I ran out of alternatives, and the only feeling I had at that time was that a doctor’s ability is so limited.

Now, meeting this kind of patient again, I really felt no hope of success. I didn’t know if he had the same causes as that prior patient or what was ailing him. But how could I decline a person filling his heart with hope?! I let him sit down, and talked about the theory of preserving health when recuperating. Suddenly this patient asked, “Are you a Falun Gong practitioner?” After I said yes, he asked why the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) persecuted Falun Gong. I told him about how Falun Gong teaches people to improve themselves by following the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Tolerance, to think of other people first, and not to fight back when being punched or insulted. I said that Falun Gong is just like a mirror, and the CCP’s corruption and cruel nature is completely unmasked before it and that is the reason why the CCP persecutes Falun Gong. When the patient heard this, he said that the CCP was so wicked and it should not persecute Falun Gong. I really felt happy when he learned the truth.

All of a sudden, the patient said it was so strange, but that his whole body was not aching any more! During the curing process, I knew that I did nothing but talk. He really appreciated what I had done for him and spoke highly of my technique. However, I knew that it was not I who cured his illness.
