My Boss, His Daughter and I
(Clearwisdom.net) After practicing Falun Gong, practitioners' pure and compassionate field can be felt by the people around them, and people therefore trust practitioners.
I'm in my forties. I started to practice Falun Dafa at the end of 1997. I constantly improve my xinxing according to the requirements of Master and the Fa. I work as a sales person in a large enterprise and often go out of town for business. However, as a Falun Dafa practitioner, I strictly require myself to live according to the standard of "Truthfulness, Compassion, and Tolerance." If I should not go after something, I won't pursue it. My behavior at work is full of diligence, hard work, and generosity, and I do not take advantage of other people. I have won the praise and respect of both my bosses and my subordinates.
The Chinese Communist Party started to persecute Falun Gong on July 20, 1999. All the media created an overwhelming slanderous atmosphere towards Falun Gong. Under the huge pressure from society, at the time I could only bear up with my righteous belief, and tried my best to explain the facts to the people who didn't know the truth. At the same time, I continued to be a good person in all aspects, in fact, better than just good. My bosses and coworkers saw it, and they tried to do what they could to protect me. When related departments came to check on Falun Gong practitioners, they would cover for me.
After the persecution started, all the way up to the second half of the year 2000, I still continued to study the "Fa" and practice the exercises in public. No matter where I went to work or on a business trip, I always wore my Falun Gong insignia. When practitioners from out of town came to share experiences with me or stay at my place, I also told my boss in public and aboveboard that I needed to borrow the meeting room and needed to stay overnight at the company. No matter how the TV and newspapers slandered Falun Gong and Falun Dafa practitioners, my bosses and coworkers continued to trust me and look out for me.
One day the general manager called me into his office and introduced his daughter to me. His daughter is 18 years old. She's tall and full of the enthusiasm of youth. She had just graduated from a polytechnic high school and was looking for a job. The general manager said, with his relationship with government officials, enterprise bosses, and former friends in the military and other places in Shenzhen City, it would not be a problem to arrange for her to work in any department or enterprise. However, thinking about how corrupt the current Chinese society is, he was worried that his daughter would become badly influenced by society. He could not even trust those friends of his who work as officials, CEOs, or even his military friends.
After thinking about it quite a while, he thought of me. He felt absolutely safe to let his beautiful daughter follow a Falun Gong practitioner like me. Therefore, he arranged his daughter to be my assistant. He also asked his daughter to learn how to be a good person and to learn how to work from me. He told her that she should learn to behave like me. Then it seemed that he wanted to follow the current anti-Falun Gong wave, and he added, "...but do not learn Falun Gong." I immediately corrected him, "That's not right. Only after learning Falun Gong first, can one be a good person and can one do good things, and so stay intact in this corrupt society." My boss smiled and agreed without another word.
Thus, my boss' daughter became my assistant and goes to different places around the country with me. My boss and his wife feel very secure about their daughter's safety, and their daughter feels very happy as well. I remain calm and constrain every thought, notion, word, and conduct of mine according to Dafa. At the same time, I ask my boss' daughter to download truth-clarifying materials from the Minghui/Clearwisdom website and sent them to her friends' mailboxes and other places, in order for predestined people to learn the truth of Falun Dafa.
