A Shy Person Becomes Outspoken
(Clearwisdom.net) Were it not for Master's great compassion and protection, I would have been unable to make it this far in my more than ten years of cultivation. I was a timid and overly cautious person prior to cultivation and had many health problems, including dizziness, insomnia, constipation, and women's health issues. I spent a lot of money seeking better treatment, but failed to find a cure for my illnesses after many attempts.
I began Falun Gong cultivation practice in 1998. The second day of the practice, on the way home I read a book on a bus for an hour but did not become dizzy at all. My body and mind significantly improved. I did everything according to Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, and learned right from wrong according to the Fa. Whenever there was a conflict, I kept calm and looked inward. I am a bus ticket and service clerk, and customers frequently attempted to bribe me to get a ticket without paying. After I began the practice, I refused to cooperate with them.
One young man, who could not afford to pay 230 yuan ticket for a long distance trip, told me that his business had had a financial setback. I gave him 260 yuan, 230 yuan to pay for the bus ticket and the additional 30 yuan for food. I also told him he should be a good person, and that I was Dafa practitioner and did everything according to Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. He was very grateful. I felt warm after I spoke with him. I realize that Master was there to purify my body.
My husband has a hot temper. I take care of all the household chores, but he still yells at me if I don't follow his orders. We argued a lot before I began Falun Gong practice, but I have subsequently become aware of my shortcomings and tried to fix them.
People near me witnessed how I improved after I began the practice. My family became more harmonious, and I could get alone with anyone at work because I began looking inward first during any conflicts or disagreements. I was once removed from my job during sensitive days, because someone who did not know the facts about Falun Gong reported me. My coworkers appealed for me and asked upper management officials to reinstate me. The coworkers mentioned that all Dafa practitioners think of others first. I was later assigned to an easier job that gave me more time to do the three things.
While riding the bus one day, there was a girl sitting behind me, and I hesitated whether or not to clarify the truth to her. We were close to the end of line, but I finally turned around and had a short talk with her. I then handed her a "Quit the CCP to save your life" flyer and told her how important it was. After she understood the truth, she quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), using an alias. Just then the bus reached our destination. With one thought, a being was saved.
When I go out I bring paper currency bills with truth-clarification messages written on them. I once sent righteous thoughts to eliminate bad elements on my way to a shopping center, and in one of the shops, I tried on clothes, chatted with the saleslady, and brought her attention to the message on the paper currency. Responding to her question, I told her how important it was to quit the CCP and reminded her to tell her family about it. I told her to repeat "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good," and "Falun Dafa is good!" when encountering big disasters. She listened carefully. Having finished my shopping, I was ready to leave, but she stopped me. She pulled out a pencil and paper, asked me to write down the words ["Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good" and "Falun Dafa is good"] for her, and thanked me for what I had done for her. At that moment I realized that there are many people waiting to be saved.
