Overcoming Obstacles to Clarify the Facts about Falun Gong
(Clearwisdom.net) With Teacher's support over the past two years, I told each and every vendor in nearby streets the facts about Falun Gong and urged them to quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its associated organizations. However, there were two people that I always had difficulties with. One was a forty-year old man selling baked rice cakes; the other was a thirty-year old selling cooked eggs. I had talked with these two several times, but they just didn't want to believe me. Worse yet, they laughed at me and said things disrespecting Falun Gong. I remembered Teacher had said that in this world there will always be some people that cannot be saved. Perhaps they were just among these people, so in my mind I had given up on them. I did not want to even look at them when passing by them day after day.
After reading Teacher's lecture "Wishing a Complete Success to the European Fa Conference", I was greatly moved. Teacher said:
"I hope that by attending the Fa conference you will be able to benefit, make improvements, and identify any shortcomings in clarifying the facts and saving sentient beings, thereby doing even better hereafter. I also hope that those students who have not been so diligent all along will be able to find where they fall short, step forward, and fulfill their historic missions. Time waits for no one!"
This was a wake-up call which got me so worried that I lost sleep.
Thinking of the historical mission that Teacher has bestowed upon us, I thought I should try harder to save those two people. What should I do? After thinking about it over and over, I got the idea to go along with their attachments. They are both operating small businesses, caring about nothing more than having people buying their stuff. I started going to the baked rice cake vendor every day for my lunch. Actually, I did not like baked rice cake, but every time I went and bought the food, I always told the vendor the facts and urged him to quit the CCP. I didn't care whether he liked it or not, or if he nodded his head. Since I always bought his stuff, he greeted me with a smile and listened to me talk. Finally, I had a good result. One day, instead of staying busy selling the rice cakes and taking money, he stopped and listened carefully to my talk. He then said that he wanted to quit the Young Pioneers League he had joined when he was young. With this same method, I got the egg vendor to quit the CCP also.
This is my lesson to share. Please point out my deficiencies if you see them.
