Encouraged by the Righteous Actions of People Who Have Learned the Truth
April 25, 2003
(Clearwisdom.net) In the course of clarifying the facts, I have been heartened by the righteous actions of people who have learned the truth. They often encourage me to "Lose no time and save them, hurry up and tell them." ("Hurry Up and Tell Them") The following are some related short stories.
"I will distribute them for you."
I have a friend who is religious and is willing to read truth clarification materials. She often exposes the lies shown on TV to her friends and upholds justice for Falun Gong. One evening, she saw a practitioner distributing flyers as some security persons came their way. She quickly walked next to the practitioner and said, "Hurry, give them to me! I will distribute them for you." She took the truth clarification materials home and finished reading them in one night. She felt that they were really good and that more people should have the chance to read them, so before dawn, while everyone was still sleeping she distributed all the materials. She even left one for the neighborhood gossip because everyone would be able to learn the truth by her broadcasting it. Sure enough, early in the morning the person announced, "Come and look. It's a Falun Gong flyer." Soon a whole bunch of people came and a discussion thus began.
"All right, we will wait for that day to come."
I went back to my hometown after the Chinese New Year's holiday. While on the train, I thought to myself, "I cannot lose this great opportunity to save people. Let me meet someone with a karmic relationship." The train stopped at a station and a sixty-some year-old lady walked in. Seeing that she walked next to me, I quickly gave her my seat. She was touched by my action, so I took the chance to tell her that I am a Falun Gong practitioner. Immediately after hearing that I was a Falun Gong practitioner, two ladies sitting close by showed interest and quickly asked me to sit next to them. They asked me questions about the things shown on TV, and I answered them one by one. After listening to what I had to say, they concluded that the Chinese media nowadays simply tell lies to deceive people and that they would not be so easily fooled next time. I also told them of the beauty of Dafa, the miracles of illnesses being healed and the current brutal persecution. They were inspired and shaken by what I had said. In the end I told them, "As long as you remember that Falun Dafa is good, you will see the coming of a magnificent day." They were moved by these words. They stood up to shake my hand and said earnestly, "All right, we will wait for that day to come." At this time, the elderly lady sitting quietly next to us stood up excitedly and said, "Don't forget me. I am still here." The four of us held hands together and smiled contentedly.
We had been talking for three to four hours without realizing it. They told me that listening to what I had said opened the doors in their hearts and that they did not feel sleepy at all. I told them that is called, "Buddha's light shines everywhere, propriety and righteousness harmonize everything." (Zhuan Falun) They replied, "These words are so well put together. Just listening to them makes people feel good. When that day comes, we will also practice Falun Gong." They left me their phone numbers and addresses. This was truly,
"Predestined relationships spanning endless lifetimes
Each connected by the thread of Dafa"
