A True Story about Picking up a Lost Mobile Phone
(Clearwisdom.net) A high school girl named Jing Lei (pseudonym) excels academically and is very polite. Her parents are both Falun Gong practitioners, so they teach her daily to conduct herself according to Falun Gong's cultivation principles of "Truthfulness, Compassion, Tolerance" in order to become a good, selfless person. When Jing Lei encounters people who have fallen prey to the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) hate propaganda against Falun Gong, she feels wounded, but she always explains the truth about Falun Gong to them in a rational and calm manner in order to save them from the same heavenly retribution that the CCP will ultimately encounter.
At around 9:30 p.m., May 21, 2006, when Jing Lei took a taxi home from an after-school learning center, she found an expensive mobile phone in the taxi. Her first thought was, "Oh, it is such an expensive mobile phone. I must return it to its owner as soon as possible." After she got out of the taxi, she didn't even enter her home. She knocked on the window instead to get her mother's attention and said, "I found an expensive mobile phone in the taxi." Her mother asked, "What do you plan to do with it?" "Of course I will try to return it to its owner right away!" "Well done!" said her mother with pride and joy.
Her parents managed to find the owner's phone number and called him. They made an appointment with the owner to return the mobile phone. It was a rainy night. Jing Lei and her mother went out in the rain with umbrellas and stood waiting for the phone's owner for 20 minutes. Finally the owner came in a taxi. He looked very anxious. When he saw the mother and the daughter on the sidewalk, he approached them quickly and asked, "Did you find my mobile phone?" After verifying the owner's story, Jing Lei returned the mobile phone to him. The owner asked her, "What's your name? Where do you go to school? I must write a letter of commendation and send it to your school." Jing Lei's mother took the opportunity to introduce Falun Gong to him. She said, "There is no need to do that. Her father and I both practice Falun Gong. We teach our daughter every day to follow the teaching of Falun Gong's Teacher and to be thoughtful of others at all times. We teach her that she must not take anything that does not belong to her. Do you know anything about Falun Gong? Falun Gong practitioners are trying to become better and better people. All the charges against Falun Gong are complete falsehoods, but Falun Gong practitioners have been suffering a terrible persecution. Please remember 'Falun Gong is good' and 'Falun Gong's principles - Truthfulness, Compassion, Tolerance - are good.' Keeping these words in mind will do your family and you a lot of good." The owner said, "Okay. Okay. I will keep them in mind. 'Falun Gong is good and Falun Gong's principles - Truthfulness, Compassion, Tolerance - are good. Falun Gong practitioners are good people.' I believe you."
