It Is Very Gratifying to Tell People the Facts about Falun Gong
In "Realms" from Essentials for Further Advancement, Master said:
"A wicked person is born of jealousy.
Out of selfishness and anger he complains about unfairness towards himself.
A benevolent person always has a heart of compassion.
With no discontentment or hatred, he takes hardship as joy.
An enlightened person has no attachments at all.
He quietly observes the people of the world deluded by illusions."
Master also said in "Buddha-Nature and Demon-Nature:"
"The same applies to human beings, who possess Buddha-nature and demon-nature at the same time. What one does without moral obligations and constraints is of demon-nature. Cultivating Buddhahood is to eliminate your demon-nature and strengthen and increase your Buddha-nature."
I was deeply touched by Master's words. By studying the Fa repeatedly and sharing experiences with other practitioners, I felt my that body was being constantly purified and many of my diseases disappeared. My xinxing was constantly improving. I realized that changing my human notions is the first step in cultivation. I should watch my every thought, correct it, and replace it with righteous thoughts. One practitioner who was a professor at a university said in his experience sharing article that Zhuan Falun is the most advanced science, it is the true science and extraordinary science. I think that is so true.
Clarifying the facts of Falun Gong to people is a process of cultivating my heart and is also a process of improving my xinxing. For the past several years, another practitioner and I have gone out to clarify the facts from 8 to 11 a.m. every day. We tell people the facts about Falun Gong in supermarkets, vegetable markets, parks, near the lake, on the buses, and in the streets. Whenever we go to parties with former classmates or colleagues' gatherings, we never forget to clarify the truth. We bring informational materials with us, and the two of us cooperate very well when in telling people the facts about Falun Gong. The other practitioner sends righteous thoughts for me and also watches for me while I am talking. As I talk, I gradually get rid of my attachment of fear and become more and more competent in clarifying the truth.
When I am on the bus, people usually stand up to let me sit down when they see my gray hair. I usually thank them first and then tell them that I am very healthy and don't need to sit down. Some will ask my age, and I tell them that I am 75. Then they are surprised and say, "You don't look that old. Your face is radiant, without any wrinkles. You look full of life. How do you manage to stay so healthy?" I reply, "I practice qigong." When they ask what kind of qigong, I tell them that this qigong is the best of all, but in China it is forbidden. Then they understand that it is Falun Gong. Some people come up to me and whisper questions, asking how to practice Falun Gong and where they can get the books. I tell them that, at present, the most important thing is to know that you will be safe if you withdraw from the CCP. So many people ask me to help them quit the CCP.
We also go out to distribute materials. We put materials in the baskets of bicycles, in the handles of car doors, and in letter boxes. We also mail materials to other provinces.
To tell people the facts about Falun Gong is a very gratifying thing to do. When I meet elderly people or people from my own town, I feel like I am meeting relatives, and I can quickly get to the topic and tell them the facts about Falun Gong. Some ask for my contact details and want to contact me in the future. One day I met a young policeman in uniform. He looked very kind. We had a very good conversation, so I clarified the truth to him and said, "You don't persecute Falun Gong, do you? They are all kind people. If you persecute them, you will meet with retribution." I asked him to tell that principle to his colleagues. In the process of clarifying the truth, people say, "You are old and should stay at home and enjoy life." I let them know that so many Falun Gong practitioners are still held in forced labor camps and in prisons and that they are being tortured--how could I stay at home and enjoy life?!
Master, please do not worry too much about us. I will do my best. I will remember that the closer to the end, the more diligent I should be.
Thank you, Master!
