Validating Dafa with Our Behavior
1. The mother-in-law of young female Falun Dafa practitioner "A" had a stroke, which left her four limbs paralyzed. The practitioner's worried brothers and sisters gradually became sick of their mother's illness. Since "A" practiced Falun Gong, she nursed her mother-in-law, cleaned her bedpan every day, washed all her dirty clothes, and helped her to exercise. With the care of the practitioner, the mother-in-law's sickness gradually changed for the better. This moved the children of the stricken woman; they realized "A" was so kind because she practices Falun Gong. Thus, they now respect Falun Gong. When "A" distributes Dafa truth materials, her sisters-in-law and brothers-in-law all support her and help her.
2. My younger brother-in-law's marriage had declined to the stage of being close to divorce. Later, my sister practiced Falun Gong; she let go of what had happened before and started treating her husband kindly. Their marriage became better. My brother-in-law was deeply moved. He witnessed the changes in his wife brought about by Falun Dafa. Thereafter, he became interested in Dafa. He started practicing, stepping onto the road of cultivation.
My younger sister's parents-in-law are both nearly 90-years old; they are very sick. Her children are not willing to take care of them. My sister took them home and looked after them in every possible way. Both were moved and often say that Falun Gong is good. Before the 16th National Party Congress, policemen came to arrest my sister; her parents-in-law confronted the policemen about their wrongful actions. The police were frightened and left in a hurry, and they did not dare to visit again for more than 10 days.
3. My spouse and I visited an old friend and explained the truth to him. After listening, this old friend said, "I believe what you say is true because I have observed the moral behavior brought about by Falun Gong. One of my colleagues practices Falun Gong. Before she practiced Falun Gong, everything in her family home revolved around what she wanted. After she practiced Falun Gong, she volunteered to take her parents-in-law home and took care of them till they passed away. I realized that Falun Gong is good by seeing her change. But when I heard what's been broadcasted on television, I could not tell what's true. I am lucky that you explained the truth to me."
The above are several occurrences that all happened around me. Although these are small matters, these incidents are very touching. Teacher told us: "You are cultivators, whose conduct is [supposed to be] pure and righteous. There are so many people who think you're great just by having seen how you act" ("Teaching the Fa at the 2002 Fa Conference in Boston"). Teacher also said in "Comments on the Article 'Some Ideas From Discussions Among Students Who Have Participated in the Sit-In Appeals in Front of the Chinese Embassies and Consulates:" "If all Chinese Dafa students can be more mindful of their conduct in daily life, be neater, and be considerate of others in everything they do, then that's the demeanor of Dafa disciples." We must remember Teacher's guidance, validate Dafa, clarify the truth and save all sentient beings with the demeanor of Dafa disciples.
