A Falun Gong Practitioner Becomes a Trusted Leader in the Mining Industry
(Clearwisdom.net) Mr. Zhu works in molybdenum mine located in northern China. He is a Falun Gong practitioner, and a very honorable and upright man. Through him, the mine's boss discovered the goodness and strength of Falun Gong.
Several years ago, Mr. Zhu went to a mine to work. During the period that he was working in the mine, he always did the most tiring jobs and let others do the easier work. When doing mineral separation, he would never substitute the good minerals with the not-so-good minerals in order to earn more money. Others tried to persuade him not to be so serious and just mix in rubble to increase the total weight of the mineral. Mr. Zhu would tell them that he is a Falun Gong practitioner and Falun Gong teaches people to be good and a good person should not cheat like that. Mines in China usually have a very complicated environment made up of all kinds of people with all kinds of backgrounds, and everyone is money-oriented. Mr. Zhu's conduct of not compromising honesty for money really amazed a lot of people in the mine.
It was not long before Mr. Zhu was promoted to the position of inspector in the quality control department of the mine. The backgrounds of the miners vary a lot from one person to the next. But Mr. Zhu always kept his standards the same and never backed down from any threats made to him. Often a group of miners that had special relationships with the mine's head boss not only forcibly occupied the good mines, but also used rocks that were only covered by a layer of molybdenum dust to deceive people into believing they were real minerals. After Mr. Zhu figured out the situation, he warned them to be honest ,yet these people still did not listen. Mr. Zhu immediately took action and prohibited them from working at the mine.
People who knew Mr. Zhu in the past before he became a Falun Gong practitioner all knew that he was a very angry person and he was involved in fights quite frequently. Mr Zhu was a gambler and he often carried a knife with him and there were many stories of his involvements in bloody incidents. Then Mr. Zhu's wife began to practice Falun Gong. Mr. Zhu saw how much his wife changed, both mentally and in her physical health, and he also began practicing Falun Gong. Since then, he got rid of his bad habits. All his friends and relatives discovered that Mr. Zhu had changed completely for the better. Because of this change in Mr Zhu, many people realized that learning Falun Gong and living by the principles of Truth, Compassion and Forbearance will change a bad person into a good person.
When some of the mine workers found out that using bribery did not work on Mr. Zhu , they changed their strategy and tried to make friends with Mr. Zhu. They would invite him to go to restaurants to have drinks, or ask him to go to some fashionable place to have a good time. Mr. Zhu always politely refused. A group leader called Mr. Zhu and told him that he transferred 500 yuan to Mr. Zhu's phone card. Mr. Zhu took out his phone's SIM card, and said to the group leader, "You can use this." The group leader expressed that he just wanted to be friends with him. Mr. Zhu sincerely told him, "Here, if you want to make more money, the only thing you can do is make sure the authenticity of your minerals is of a high standard."
As for the miners who did not have strong supporters or the ones who were quiet and honest, Mr. Zhu always helped them to push and unload their carts and he made sure he would do everything to help them. Everyone in the mine gradually realized that Mr. Zhu is a just man who is not swayed by money.
Mr. Zhu's positive image as a Falun Gong practitioner was soon noticed by the mine's boss. The boss elevated Mr. Zhu position as head of quality control in several mine districts.
After Mr. Zhu took this position, he discovered that there were many quality control personnel who had relationships with other leaders in the mine and misused their power. He dismissed and replaced many of them. Everyone who wanted to continue to work in the department had to give up their bad behavior, including corruption. He replaced the corrupt personnel in the most crucial positions with Falun Gong practitioners. He sincerely told the boss, "If you let me take the lead of this department, you have to let me do it this way. If there are still people who use their relationships with others and earn money through illegal ways, then I'd rather not take this position. For those crucial jobs, I would like to place Falun Gong practitioners in those positions, because I feel for the mine it is the safest and best to give these jobs to them." The boss agreed and already thoroughly understood that not only was Mr. Zhu an honest person that only takes his salary home, but that all other Falun Gong practitioners are people who are honest and never steal.
Those people who were dismissed by Mr. Zhu were very angry. They got together and spread the word that they would go to the city's judicial branch and the province's judicial branch to reveal that Mr. Zhu was a Falun Gong practitioner. Mr. Zhu attended a full department meeting at the mine and he openly talked about why he dismissed these people, giving many facts and evidence of their corruption. He also pointed out to the people he had dismissed that he does everything for the right causes and whatever they do, it would not change his actions. In the face of Mr. Zhu's firm stand on maintaining justice, the dismissed people dropped their accusations against him.
Today, the people who come and go in the mining groups all see the righteous and elegant demeanor of Mr. Zhu and his honest personnel. Everyone in the mine knows the persecution of Falun Gong is wrong. In addition, there have never been any accidents in the mine. Mr. Zhu and the righteousness of Falun Gong are deeply influencing the people who work in and around the mine.
