A Good Cultivation Environment: Classmates Work Together to Clarify the Truth about Falun Gong
(Clearwisdom.net) Below is a letter from a Falun Gong practitioner describing how people are awakening to the truth of Falun Gong.
Middle School Classmates Work Together to Clarify the Truth about Falun Gong
In Northern China, one middle school student and all three of his family members practice Falun Gong. He always explains the truth about Falun Dafa and introduces the teachings to his classmates. He encourages his mother, saying, "Don't be afraid, just try your best and Teacher will help you!" He also informed his mother, "If we keep a righteous mind, all of my classmates will help me."
One day, their teacher in class asked who was practicing Falun Gong. He raised his hand bravely and slowly, one by one, his fellow students also raised their hands. Once, when he obtained some printed materials explaining the truth about Falun Gong, his classmates had a friendly competition with each other to distribute the materials. While hanging Falun Dafa banners, they also competed with each other to see who had hung the banner highest in a tree and who had hung it in the most aesthetically pleasing way.
Some students also tried to follow the example of grownups who had gone to unfurl Falun Gong banners on Tiananmen Square. They unfurled banners in the hallways of the school and shouted, "Falun Dafa is good! Falun Dafa is the righteous Fa (1)!"
Practicing Falun Gong is allowed in all countries but China
Once, when I was explaining the true situation about Falun Gong to a stranger, I asked for his opinion about Falun Dafa. He said, "I listen to the Voice of America every day; practicing Falun Gong is allowed in all countries except China." When I told him that I was a Falun Gong practitioner, he raised many questions, which I readily answered. I also told him one of my personal experiences. As part of my work, I often get invited to have dinner in places without paying for it (2). After I read Zhuan Falun, (3) I always got an upset stomach when I was invited on such occasions. At first, I did not know why this was, but when it happened again I realized that I must reject such invitations. I recognized that I had done wrong to take away other people's property by eating, and drinking their food. The Fa taught by our Teacher requires us to be good persons in every aspect of our lives.
After the person heard what I said, he thought that Falun Dafa was very amazing. He wanted to borrow the book to see for himself. When he had finished the book, he said that its content was totally different from what was said on the TV and that the government was lying and deceiving the people.
Employers ask for help with hiring more Falun Gong practitioners
A corn collection center in Northeastern China was employing several Falun Gong practitioners. They had been explaining the truth about Falun Gong to others and had always demonstrated the greatness of Falun Dafa with their righteousness and their compassionate behavior. One day, the employer told one of the Falun Gong practitioners that the center would be very busy over the next few days and asked for help with hiring more Falun Gong practitioners so that he would not have to worry about anybody's behavior.
Employers agree that Falun Gong practitioners are most just and fair
One Falun Gong practitioner's job was to check the weight of loads of coal in a coal plant. All the coal bought by the plant was weighed by this person. The coal producers and the nearby transportation company owners all agreed that the Falun Gong practitioner always assessed the weight of the coal fairly.
A private transit operator tells everyone that people who practice Falun Gong are very good
One of the owners of a passenger transportation company was no longer able to sell tickets himself after his business started to grow. When he hired additional staff for his bus, they always made costly mistakes. Eventually, he was informed by a friend that Falun Gong practitioners are very good, do not pursue fame and money, are not corrupt, never take things which do not belong to them and work hard without complaining. When he followed the advice of his friend and hired a Falun Gong practitioner, his friend was proven correct. He then told everyone he met, "People who practice Falun Gong are very good."
The "UltraSurf" software brings us fresh air!
All of my close friends and colleagues have installed the "UltraSurf 6.3.1" (4) on their home computers. I sent them the URL for the software by instant messaging. Incredibly, I soon found out that even our local government representatives, including the section leader, invited me to come to their homes to secretly install the software, once they found out that it was available. In addition, I published the URL on many Internet Bulletin Boards.
