Making the Most of Time and Resources to Offer Salvation to Sentient Beings
(Clearwisdom.net) If what happened to me recently had happened in the past, I would have removed myself from the scene or tried my best to avoid it. But this time I had to face people and offer them salvation. The event not only purged evil, but also purified my body.
In the middle of July 2008, my husband's nephew was getting married in my hometown, and we were invited. At about that time, an agent from the 610 Office at my workplace called me and said, "I am the new 610 Office head and want to visit you to get to know you." I told him, "Please don't come. I will be out of town for a couple of days for a wedding." Once I hung up the phone, I thought about it. If I leave for the wedding, I would miss the opportunity to explain the facts about Falun Gong to the 610 Office head. His visit seemed to be for a reason, since it might be a chance for me to help him obtain a good future.
Since I started my Falun Gong practice in 1998, the 610 Office head at my workplace had changed three times. I was not afraid and spoke with each one about Falun Gong and asked each to quit the CCP. One of them quit the CCP, and two read the book Zhuan Falun. Here came another new 610 Office head, and he might be coming here to find Falun Gong, too. The next day he showed up at my apartment. I related to him about how I had participated in the April 25th Appeal, spoke of the regime's fabricated self-immolation at Tiananmen Square, that heaven had predicted the destruction of the Party, and how to withdraw from the CCP to save one's soul. He finally replied, "I understand. You are a cultivator, and you are offering people salvation."
The next day I went to a practitioner's home, planning to take Dafa materials back to my hometown. The new 610 Office head called and said, "I am looking for you, but you are not at home." He told me that there was an urgent notification from someone in upper management, and he wanted to share that information with me. I asked if he could share that information with me over the phone. He did not, but stated that since the Olympic Games were coming, Dafa practitioners were forbidden to leave town. He had to report my situation to higher authorities because of my plans to attend an out-of-town wedding. Higher level officials had decided to have me transported in a company car to the wedding location. I told him, "I thought you already knew that we are practitioners, and we offer people salvation." "I understand, but I am just obeying orders," he insisted. I consulted with other practitioners. Some cautioned me not to go with them, saying that they might take me to another place to lock me up, but I soon realized that was a wrong thought.
Actually, I had no intention of cooperating with him, but thought that I still had my mission to accomplish, which was to bring Dafa materials to my hometown. If this had happened in the past, I would have refused to cooperate with him. I sent righteous thoughts constantly to eliminate negative things.
The next day, the 610 Office head called again and reminded me that a car would pick me up at 2:00 p.m. The people with the car showed up at 1:20 p.m. at my apartment. Four people were already in the car -- three were young men and the fourth person was a former 610 Office head whom I knew. I joked, "Why is the CCP afraid of an older woman like me? I don't have a gun or any other weapon. Why are they so afraid? It must be that the CCP has done so many bad things and are scared of themselves!" They all laughed. On the way we chatted about the Olympic Games. I told them that the Olympics are a symbol of peace. "Why is the CCP in such a panic and in a state of extreme nervousness, making everyone else nervous, too? It is not necessary for so many people to accompany me." The former 610 Office head tried to tell me that this was one of his scheduled business trips and the destination happened to be at my hometown, and that is why they offered me a ride. I knew he was trying to cover up something. I told them they were victims of the regime as well. I clarified the facts about Falun Gong and talked about the benefits of Falun Gong. The mood in the car was good. They sometimes nodded their heads and occasionally laughed genuinely. I knew they were happy to know the facts.
The second day after we arrived in my hometown, I successfully helped the taxi driver quit the CCP, and I also gave him Falun Gong materials and a DVD of the Chinese New Year Spectacular. At the wedding, I met my husband's old classmate and his wife, and both of them quit the CCP. They were very happy to accept a DVD of the Chinese New Year Spectacular and other materials. After I was introduced, I met everyone around the table and told stories about the CCP and asked them to quit the CCP. Many of them did, including a former Party Secretary. Of course there was some resistance, too.
At about 1:30 p.m. a car arrived, supposedly sent from my employers to pick me up, but it was a different car with a different driver and passengers, except for the former 610 Office head. Once in the car, I took out an MP3 player and prepared to listen to Dafa music because I did not like the music they had playing. The former 610 Office head took my MP3 away. I told him that the player has Master's lectures, Dafa music, The Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party and other good things stored on it. My bag contained a second player with the same content. He ended up listening to Master's lectures.
I turned on my MP3 player and played the Dafa musical piece "Heaven." To my surprise, when the piece started, it totally covered up the music they were playing. The driver asked, "What music is this? It is so beautiful!" and turned off his music. I told them this was music that a Dafa practitioner had written. He asked where he could get this song, or if he could make a copy of this. I handed over several copies of Minghui Weekly and told him how to get on Dynaweb and how to download the software Freegate, which would enable him to get onto the Minghui website. I also handed him a DVD of the Chinese New Year Spectacular and other materials. He was very happy. On the way back I also had them listen to Pudu and Jishi. It was very peaceful in the car. I was so happy that two groups of people were given an opportunity for salvation.
No matter what we Dafa practitioners encounter, we have to deal with it from a high standard. Some things may not appear to be good to begin with, but if we do our best, a bad thing may become a good thing. We can improve in the process and offer salvation to people.
I am grateful that Master arranged this opportunity for me. I will cultivate more diligently, do the three things as a Fa-rectification practitioner, and fulfill my prehistoric pledge.
