Saving Sentient Beings with Compassion and Righteous Thoughts
(Clearwisdom.net) I began to cultivate Dafa in 1997. Protected by revered Master, I've walked my cultivation path to today. Now I would like to share my cultivation experiences in doing the three things.
1. Compassion Moves a CCP Follower
Before World Falun Dafa Day in 2009, the local 610 Office hired a woman to follow and monitor me. After I realized what she was doing, I looked in her eyes with strong righteous thoughts. She begged me: “Please don't leave me behind, I have to watch you. I don't have a job and both of my children are still very young.” After hearing her words, I had great compassion for her and thought: “Like many Chinese people she is a victim who is being used by the CCP to commit wrongdoing. It's not a coincidence that she was sent to spy on me. Clearly we have a predestined relationship and it's my responsibility to save her.”
While she continued to monitor me, we talked and became good friends. When I went grocery shopping, she helped me carry the food and when I went to buy some clothes, she recommended some good stores to me. In order to spend more time talking with her, we went to the park. Gradually, she explained that she desperately needed a job so she had agreed to follow me. She said: “I know you Falun Dafa practitioners are all good people. If everyone in the world were as good as you are, then society would become peaceful. If I hadn't signed a contract with them, I would have quit my job (of following you) a long time ago. I hope you pay more attention to safety and save more people.”
2. Stop the Evil Acts with Righteous Thoughts
One day last spring, several practitioners and I planned to go to the provincial women's prison in the morning to send forth righteous thoughts and visit the practitioners who were detained there.
I came to the place where we were going to meet a few minutes earlier than the scheduled time, but after half an hour, no one else showed up. I thought they might have had some emergency and couldn't come.
At that time, I found that there were many people doing morning exercise in the nearby park. So I thought it was a good opportunity for me to clarify the truth and persuade them to quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations. I quickly helped a veteran police officer who was playing badminton to quit the CCP. After that, I turned to the female police officer who was playing with him and began to persuade her to quit the CCP as well.
While I was talking to her, a couple of police officers asked me for truth-clarification discs. I said: “I'm sorry, I didn't bring any with me today, I will bring some to you next time.” Then they wanted to look through my purse. I had one thought: “They can't destroy the truth-clarification materials; our Fa implements to save people.” When they opened my purse and searched it, they didn't find anything.
Then I had another thought that they were also sentient beings waiting to be saved. The materials were made for them. So I gave them all the materials I had and said: “There are so many disasters happening now. Keep safe and quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations.” I also told them that they should take time to watch the videos, that it would be good for them.
3. Helping Fellow Practitioners Set Up a Truth-clarification Material Production Site
At the end of last year, I heard that there was a small town not far from us which only had one material production site and that it was located very far from the town. All the practitioners in the small town and nearby villages depended on this one production center. Normally, every issue of Minghui Weekly was delayed for almost ten days before the practitioners could read it and usually several practitioners had to share one copy. If the practitioner who was responsible for delivering the materials had an emergency and couldn't get there on time, all the materials would be delayed for an even longer time.
After I discussed this with local practitioners, they all realized the importance of setting up another material production center, but after a while, they still didn't do anything. I asked them if they didn't have enough people or were short of money, or perhaps they didn't have any practitioners who understood all the technology, or a place to set up the site. I told them that I would do my best to help them. They told me that many of the practitioners there were well off financially, and that nearby practitioners could teach them the technology, and a location wasn't a problem either. I realized that they were afraid and their righteous thoughts weren't strong enough.
With Master's help, I went to an elder practitioner's house. I talked with her and she said she would be pleased to have the material production site set up at her house. I asked practitioners to help me buy a computer and install the system for her. I gave her my laser printer. Although my husband isn't a practitioner, he is very supportive. He offered to deliver all the materials to the elder practitioner's house. Now this material production site is working very well and all the practitioners who live close to the elder practitioner's house can now read Dafa materials on time so they can keep up with the pace of Fa-rectification.
When we keep compassion in our hearts and our every thought focused on saving people, we will be able to fulfill benevolent Master's arrangements.
