Traveling Thousands of Miles to Clarify the Truth
(Clearwisdom.net) The following story spans four provinces, involves four people who began practicing Falun Dafa, and tells about six more people who learned the facts about and quit the Communist Youth League and Young Pioneers. Just a single wrong thought or a single mistake can cause a person or even a group of people to lose their chance to be saved. This reminds me that every time Master gives a lecture, he mentions that we must do the three things well and he keeps telling Dafa disciples that saving sentient beings is a great vow that we once made. He tells us to use
"...compassion that can melt steel..." ("Explaining the Fa During the 2003 Lantern Festival at the U.S. West Fa Conference") to clarify the truth and
"Validate the Fa with rationality, clarify the truth with wisdom, spread the Fa and save people with mercy..." ("Rationality" from Essentials for Further Advancement II)
Yue and Liang Begin to Cultivate
Twenty years ago in City A, when I was very sick, 16-year-old Yue accompanied me through the most difficult times. Later I moved to City B, thousands of miles away. Yue married Liang and they moved to City F.
After the persecution of Falun Gong began, Yue and Liang were very concerned about me, especially during the times when I was illegally imprisoned. Many of my friends and relatives were quiet and kept a barrier between us. Even the ones whom I had helped a great deal were afraid of getting drawn into my case. However, Yue and Liang called me quite often to see how I was doing. For the past several years I had called them and written to them to clarify the truth to them. As Fa-rectification progressed, I felt that time was short. In November 2007 I finally went to City F to explain the facts about the persecution of Falun Gong to Yue and Liang and to convince them to quit the CCP.
As soon as I arrived, I began to tell them of the beauty of Dafa. During the conversation I noticed that Liang had cervical spondylosis and he had to constantly take medication. Whenever it acted up, Liang's heartbeat would become very unsteady. If his condition worsened, he would have to see a doctor, where one treatment cost 10,000 yuan ($1400 USD). Yue and Liang are not wealthy. They have mothers to care for and two daughters in school. These medical costs were a great burden for them. Liang was most afraid that one day he would become completely disabled. This thought was very stressful for him. I kept explaining the facts to them and told Liang, "You should learn Falun Gong. You can read the book first." He just said, "Okay."
Their older daughter lived in the same city and their younger daughter, Xiaolan, age seven, lived with them. Since both Yue and Liang had to work, they couldn't take care of her. Usually she stayed with someone else, but since I was there, they brought her home. The little girl was very dark and skinny, and she didn't eat much rice or flour. She only ate vegetables and fruit. At the time I met her, she was coughing and breathing heavily. Because they didn't have much money, she received no medical treatment.
Both Liang and Yue worked night shifts. I wrote, "Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good" on a piece of paper and taught Xiaolan to read and memorize it. She is a very smart girl and learned to read and memorize it very quickly. That night she didn't cough at all. She told her parents about it and they were both very surprised by the miraculous Dafa. I told them that gradually Xiaolan's eating habits would improve. While Xiaolan was in bed sleeping she said, "I'm hungry. I want to eat right now." Yue and Liang were shocked. I convinced them to begin cultivation and taught them the first and fifth exercises. When I got back to City B, I mailed them a copy of Zhuan Falun and the exercise music. I also mailed a Hong Yin book for Xialoan.
Yue and Liang were both pretty diligent. When I saw Yue again in March 2008, she told me that they both had become very healthy. Xiaolan ate and drank very well, her body was in a much better shape, and she was becoming an even better child.
Dafa Spread Among People--The Buddha Fa Is Boundless
Right after the 2008 Chinese New Year, Yue's mom became ill. She had diabetes, a brain infarction, and drooping eyelids. She lives in City A and she asked Yue to come back to see her. I urged Yue to clarify the facts about Falun Gong to her mother and sisters with her own experience and try to convince them to quit the CCP.
During these nine years of persecution, I have been back to City A four times because I have many friends there. Every time I went, I visited Yue's mother. I clarified truth to her family and told her to recite "Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good." But every time she had simple smile on her face and said, "I can't remember it."
Yue stayed home for a week and explained the facts to her mom, older brother, and younger sister with her own experience. The younger sister and her son quit the CCP. Yue also told them to recite often "Falun Dafa is good" and "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good." But her brother wouldn't listen. Yue also taught her mother "Falun Dafa is good" and "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance," character by character, but her mother still couldn't remember it.
One night they were sleeping on the same bed and her mother woke up in the middle of the night and asked her, "You taught me 'Falun Dafa is good,' but I forgot the next line."
Yue said, "It's okay if you can't remember. Don't worry about it." Yue didn't tell her the next line.
Master has told us that all sentient beings are waiting for the Fa. After all, Yue is a new practitioner. So I went to City A again. When I saw Yue's mother, I was stunned. Her eyelids were normal and she had no trouble moving her legs. She could even walk better than a year prior (before, her legs gave her so much pain that she had difficulty walking). I was so touched by Master's compassion. She only had this one pure thought and Master purified her body. The disease that the hospital couldn't heal was cured without any medication.
When I asked her how she was cured, she said she didn't know. I then told her about the beauty of Dafa through the changes in Yue, Liang, their daughter, and myself. I told her how compassionate Master is and that because she recited "Falun Dafa is good" even during her sleep, it was from her heart, so Master purified her body. I told her to remember Master's grace, remember the line diligently and recite it often, and she would receive blessings.
I asked Yue's older brother and younger sister, who were sitting next to us, "Do you believe it now?"
They said, "Yes! Yes!"
I asked "Is this all real?"
They answered, "All real!"
I felt that their answers were from their hearts this time. They all learned the true nature of Falun Gong and were saved. Yue called later to say that her mother's diabetes was gone, too.
Yue and Liang became completely healthy only three months after obtaining the Fa. Yue's skin became very delicate and she began to look younger. Even her teeth that were discolored from overexposure to fluoride (fluorosis) gradually lightened.. She and Liang stayed in my home for a week and learned all five exercises. I told her and Liang to join group Fa-study and group exercises, and almost every day I shared with her my and others' experiences as practitioners. Both Yue and Liang felt that they improved a lot during that week. Yue said that her fingernails now had better coloring and her fingertips became smoother. Yue also listened to my suggestion and went back to her hometown, which is several hundred miles away in a rural area, and told Liang's mother about the beauty of Falun Dafa. In June, Yue's older sister went to City F and all four people in her family stepped onto the path of cultivation. They have formed a small Fa-study group themselves.
