Why My Friend's Business Is Booming
(Clearwisdom.net) Ming Yi, my friend, has a business in Beijing. Because he has helped Dafa disciples several times, his business is quite profitable. His earnings have not been affected by the global economic recession.
Falun Dafa has been persecuted in China since July 1999. The situation in Beijing is worse than in any other city. Police officers try to learn where practitioners live so they arrest them. One morning, Ms. Cheng, Ming Yi's neighbor, knocked on Ming's door, and whispered, "Can I stay here for a moment? The policemen downstairs are watching me. I've already packed my things. After they leave, I'll try to leave Beijing and go back to my hometown." Ming Yi said, "How are you going to travel?" "I don't know yet," said Ms. Cheng. Ming Yi said, "I'll drive you out of town. Aunt Cheng, my mother also practices Falun Gong. Before Falun Gong she suffered with many illnesses. She took all kinds of medicine, but none were able to cure her. However, after practicing Falun Gong, she regained her good health."
He continued, "I know Falun Gong is unusual. The practitioners are all straight arrows. They are not afraid to go to Tiananmen Square and shout 'Falun Dafa is good!' They dare to fight for their master's innocence. I admire them. Please put your hat on and get your things ready. We'll leave shortly."
Ming Yi drove Ms. Cheng to the station and helped her get on a train home. Ms. Cheng wanted to pay Ming for his trouble. Ming said, "Aunt, I'm helping you and my mom to thank Falun Gong. I'll feel relieved if you arrive home safely. Take care." Ming Yi waited for the train to leave before he departed.
While Beijing was hosting the Olympic Games, some friends needed Dafa materials. Ming Yi helped to deliver the materials, but then his wife tried to stop him. Ming said, "Don't worry, I'll hide them in my clothing." Ming Yi managed to pass the materials to Dafa disciples, even though the police were searching people at every turn. He also drove Dafa disciples to the computer stores and helped them choose computers and printers.
His business has prospered over the years. Although there is a global recession, he has been enjoying a booming business and he even had to hire more staff. His annual income is about one million yuan. The people who know him understand that he is prosperous because he treats Dafa well.
People Recognize That "Falun Dafa Is Good!"
Yang Dawei, lives in a village in the northern part of Heishan County, Liaoning Province, and has a small business selling clothes. Because Dafa disciples always tell him the facts about the goodness of Falun Gong, he knows that if one follows the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Tolerance, the results will be good.
One time a customer paid for his clothing with a 20-yuan bill and then forgot to take the 15 yuan in change. Dawei didn't notice this until after the customer had left the store. He searched everywhere until he found the customer and returned the money. The customer was moved and said, "Thank you so much! I will visit your store again."
In November 2008, a customer made a mistake and overpaid Dawei by 410 yuan. Dawei thought, "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance are rooted in my mind. I cannot go against my conscience." He returned the money to the customer.
When he shared this story with others, he said, "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is in my heart." Ms. Liu, who sells makeup, said, "You know, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is in me, too. One time, a customer paid me with two 100-yuan bills that were stuck together. I remembered Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance and returned the extra 100 yuan bill to her."
After Ms. Liu shared her story, Ms. Sun Xiaoming, who also sells makeup, shouted, "Falun Dafa is good!"
