The Righteous Words and Actions of Dafa Disciples are the Best Truth
(Clearwisdom.net) A female practitioner's friend has heard a lot about the truth of Falun Dafa from the practitioner and read many truth clarification materials, but still does not believe that Dafa practitioners have that high level of awareness.
One day, this practitioner and her friend went shopping. Her friend wanted to throw some fruit peels to the ground. The practitioner stopped her and put the fruit peels in her own bag. Her friend didn't understand her and asked her why she did not throw it on the ground like most of people did. The practitioner told her that Dafa practitioners should always think about other people first, and what she did would make the cleaning staff's job easier. Thus, the practitioner carried that bag for a long way before she found a trash bin. Her friend observed her silently, and finally said, "You've told me a lot about the truth of Falun Gong, but I didn't believe you at all. Today after seeing what you did, I truly believe that Falun Dafa practitioners are really good and it is certainly wrong for Jiang to persecute good people."
Another practitioner spent two years in a forced labor camp for going to Beijing to appeal for Falun Gong. He suffered all kinds of ruthless torture in the labor camp. He tried many times to let his family members understand the truth of Falun Gong when they came to visit him, but didn't get very good results.
Two years later, he left the forced labor camp and came home with dignity. He knew his family had also suffered a lot from the persecution during all these years although they were all innocent too. So, after he came back home, he spent a lot of time to learn more about their lives during those two years and to tell them about the brutal persecution he suffered in the labor camp. Every day, he helped to clean the house, do other housework, polish shoes for his brother and his sister-in-law, etc.
As he was still very weak, his family asked him to rest as mush as possible. He told them wholeheartedly, "Because I practice Falun Gong, you all were involved and suffered a lot from the persecution. I can't repay you right now, but I want to do as much as I can to express my gratitude." His reasonable action won the family's comprehension of Dafa. Finally his family members said to him, "That is good enough for us and you don't have to do all this work. If you have time, read your Falun Dafa books as you haven't seen them for two years."
A practitioner's daughter, D, is in her 30's and is very capable. Her business in Japan has earned a lot of money, but she always feels there is something missing in her life. D's mother told her about the truth of Falun Gong many times, so she knows that Dafa is very good. But, when her mother asks her to practice, she always says, "Let's talk about it later."
A few days ago, a Dafa practitioner from another place needed some truth clarifying CDs urgently. One of our fellow practitioners brought him many CDs right away. The practitioner from another place took out 1,000 yuan to pay for the cost of the CDs, but the local practitioner refused and said, "We Dafa practitioners are one body. Practitioners in this city have more money than practitioners in your place, so take this money back and use it to make more truth clarifying materials." All this happened before D's eyes. Afterwards D told her mom, "You used to tell me that in order to let people know the truth of Falun Gong, Dafa practitioners can give up everything they have. I didn't really believe you, but today after what I saw, I believe it." From that day on, she started to read Dafa books.
Currently in China, Falun Dafa is widely known and people are gradually starting to embrace it. What Dafa practitioners are doing to validate the Fa may look ordinary, but will actually have a huge influence on those around us and on society. Fellow practitioners, let us rectify our words and actions according to Dafa, show Dafa's greatness to more people in the world, save more sentient beings on the road of validating the Fa, and fulfill the grand vows we made before history. Finally, I'd like to conclude with a quote from Teacher's article "Sage":
"He is on a Providential mission in this world as well as in heaven above. He has bountiful virtue and also maintains a benevolent heart; he is full of great aspirations while minding minor details. With broad knowledge of the laws and principles, he is able to unravel uncertainties. Offering salvation to the world and its people, he builds up his merit naturally."
