Break Through the Poison that Affects Our Families - Clarify the Truth to Save People
(Clearwisdom.net) A Falun Dafa practitioner in Hebei province in her 70's has been troubled by her family since July 1999. Her children were poisoned by the deceptive propaganda of Jiang's regime, so they closely monitored her, attempting to restrict whom she saw and what she did. They didn't allow her to contact any fellow practitioners and prohibited them from coming to their home. Sometimes she was not even able to receive Teacher's new articles in a timely manner. Although she read Falun Dafa books, studied the Fa and practiced the exercises every day at home, she was quite depressed. Her face was haggard, and she looked very old.
In September 2004, she read Teacher's article "Let Go of Human Attachments and Save the World's People." She attempted to have a serious talk with her children a few times, but they refused. She thought, "I cannot obey them anymore, otherwise I am ruining them. Plus, so many people are deceived by Jiang's lies. I have to go out to clarify the truth to them and save them." Then she thought, "My children should also be saved. Since they don't listen to me, I will write to them. They must read what I write."
So, she wrote a long letter to each of her son, her daughter-in-law, her daughter and her son-in-law. In the letters, she wrote about the huge changes in her body and mind after cultivating Falun Dafa and how Dafa had spread all over the world. She wrote about how hundreds of millions of people learned Dafa before 1999 and how Dafa practitioners today persisted in their belief. After she wrote a new letter every few days, her children finally came to understand the truth. When the family sat together, they told her, "We all know Dafa is good. We were just afraid. That's why we treated you as we did." The practitioner said with relief, "I am glad you all understand."
From then on, she arranged her daily life properly. She got up around 3 a.m. After practicing the five sets of exercises, she prepared breakfast for her children. When the children went out to work, she studied the Fa by herself for about two hours. Then she went out and clarified the truth to people at every opportunity. In the fall, when the farmers were busy, she went to the field and helped with the fieldwork and she clarified the truth to them. In winter when people worked less in the fields, she went door to door to clarify the truth. Many people who didn't know the truth finally understood what Falun Gong is really about and why the illegal persecution of Falun Gong by Jiang's regime is against the law and the Constitution.
The practitioner often said, "Teacher told us to do three things - study the Fa, send righteous thoughts and clarify the truth. We must do all three things well. None is to be neglected." Everything in daily life is also part of cultivation. She arranged everything well, including grocery shopping, meal preparation and household chores. Her children noticed this and cared deeply about her. Many times, they said to her with concern, "Please don't work too hard!" She always answered with a smile, "This is the power of Dafa. I don't feel that I am working hard at all!"
Gradually, day after day, her appearance changed. She used to look old and pale. Now her face is glowing and very smooth, without many wrinkles. All those who knew her asked her with surprise, "How did you become so glowing and energetic?" She gladly told them, "I cultivate Falun Dafa. All of this is from Falun Dafa."
