Accident
Knocked over together with my bicycle, I suffered no injuries

Idzunome branch, Toyomi OTSUKI
Reported in the October 2007 issue of the "Shinkyo" newsletter

$nbsp;It has been thirty years since I was in relation with Meishu-sama. I usually go to work by bicycle, but it was in May this year. On the day, the wind as a typhoon was blowing, and therefore my coworker at the work place was concerned about me to go home by bicycle and said to me, "Why don't you go home on foot." Nevertheless, I left there riding my bicycle out of my single-mindedness to go back earlier.

$nbsp;When I was about to cross at a pedestrian crossing, I saw a car come from the right front of me, but I thought, "Probably I can cross over it," and started doing it. My judgment was wrong. Its speed was faster than I expected, and the moment I thought, "Ah!" I was being knocked over together with my bicycle.


$nbsp;"Oh my god! I made a big mistake," I thought, and the next moment I was floated and was slowly like slow motion whirling round in the air. Then, I landed on my knees first and slowly hands next, four limbs just like a horse's figure.


$nbsp;The road was very soft just like futon (Japanese style bedding) then. Normally, one would be struck onto the ground, but I had no pain in both my knees and hands at all and did not suffer even a scratch. I recovered my consciousness, intuited, "Meishu-sama has deigned to protect me in the instant of the collision," and repeated expressing my gratitude over and over again on the spot, "Thanks so much!!"


$nbsp;In the moment of the accident, I was composedly seeing the car running over my bicycle. It was so badly damaged that the front basket was crushed, and the handle was badly broken and bent.


$nbsp;The driver must be quite startled. He immediately got out of his/her car and came to me but was twice surprised seeing me not injured at all.


$nbsp;Fortunately, because where I encountered the accident was in front of my company, there were witnesses, and my director and many coworkers rushed to the scene. The driver was an employee of a company in the same district. Because it was one of my company's customers, it was settled with each other's superiors so thereafter was really reassuring for me. I am profoundly grateful that this was also by the grace of Meishu-sama and my ancestors.


$nbsp;At this opportunity, I would like to remember what state of mind I was in at first and to convey this miracle and wonderfulness of the faith in Meishu-sama to many people.
