A Building Manager Becomes a Falun Dafa Practitioner
(Minghui.org) I met my sister-in-law, whom I had not seen for a long time, at a family gathering. We chatted. She told me that she is retired and has a part-time job as a building manager. “What do you do?” asked I. “Well, I go up and down in the building, to give residents updates from management and solve conflicts among neighbors. I often collect Dafa flyers, booklets and DVDs and remove Dafa posters from the walls of the building. I either destroy these materials or turn them over to the authorities.”
I was a little shocked and asked, "Did you really do such a thing?" She said, "I had to, because Falun Gong flyers were everywhere and I would be punished if I did not.” I told her, “You should not do such a thing and you should not listen to the government propaganda, which often reverses black and white. Those flyers, brochures, and DVDs are materials to save people’s lives. They let people make a distinction between good and evil; to stay away from evil and become safe through hardships. It could be because of you that some people lost their chance to be offered salvation. Those destroyed materials were made by Dafa practitioners who had used their savings and risked their lives to distribute them. Dafa practitioners have cultivated their great compassion to offer people salvation. No one in the world except Dafa practitioners would do such things.”
My sister-in-law became a little anxious and said, “I want to be a good person.” I told her, "There is a standard to be a good person; no matter what you do, heavenly beings are watching you and there are documents and accounts of what you have done. When the truth is revealed, you can see all the untold history before your eyes.” She asked, “What should I do to make up for my past misconduct?" I gave her a copy of Zhuan Falun and asked her to read it.
Two weeks later, my sister-in-law came over and told me, “I read the book. The book is great, and I could not put it down. I read it every day and I want to practice Falun Gong!” Her eyes showed her willingness and sincerety. I could feel that Dafa and Master’s great compassion had led a person who was confused to wake up and look for her original life. She then watched Master’s exercise DVD and read Master's new articles and started practicing Falun Gong.
Since practicing Falun Dafa, my sister-in-law often shares her cultivation experiences with me. Together we share the joy of cultivation. Once, she had a conflict with her daughter-in-law. If that had happened in the past, she would have already dumped all her anger onto her son. This time, she behaved differently because she reminded herself that she was Dafa cultivator and should act according to Dafa. Instead of deepening the conflict with her daughter-in-law, my sister-in-law started looking inwards, sat down in the lotus position and repeated, “Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!” While repeating the phrase, her mind became calm and her anger disappeared. She could not wait to reconcile with her daughter-in-law.
On another occasion my sister-in-law had severe a headache and felt physically weak. She felt really sick and decided to go to a hospital for a check-up. But her illness symptoms disappeared when she got to the hospital steps. Wondering what was happening, she realized that Master might be cleansing her body, and she then understood that those symptoms were not real illnesses. She left the hospital and went home. At home, she looked at Master’s picture, and said, “Thank you Master for purifying my body. I must cultivate Dafa diligently and do better.” This incident showed her the power of Dafa.
My sister-in-law is still the building manager, but now she does things according to Dafa. I was in her office once; she pointed to a box in a corner and said, “Those are a collection of Dafa materials which people have discarded. I collect them and redistribute them to people who have a predestined relationship with Dafa.” She added, “It is for saving lives.” I was so happy for her. Between good and evil, she chose goodness.
