China Fahui | Seize the Time to Save Sentient Beings
(Minghui.org) Excerpt: 2006 was the year that I endured the most severe persecution. I had broken bones in my lower back and the bones on the bottom of my feet were shattered. My feet and ankles were disfigured, and my left leg was numb. A steel plate was implanted in my lower back. Ever since then, I kept reminding myself, “I'm no ordinary person, but a cultivator on the path to godhood.”
Greetings, esteemed Master! Greetings, fellow practitioners!
I have been practicing Falun Dafa since 1998. In this article, I would like to report to Master and share with fellow practitioners my experience of handling tribulations with righteous thoughts.
Genuine Falun Dafa practitioners who are assisting Master in the Fa-rectification and saving sentient beings have frequent new understandings and endless stories of joy and tribulations on their paths of cultivation. Here are a few stories of mine.
Helping People to Quit the CCP and Its Affiliated Organizations
I have been clarifying the facts and helping people to quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its affiliated organizations.
I have an orchard of about 3 acres and raise over 30 domestic birds. However, nothing can keep me from assisting Master in validating the Fa and saving sentient beings.
When I go shopping, I think, “Shopping is just so secondary. Assisting Master in saving people is much more important.” Sometimes I can bring the truth about Falun Dafa to over 10 people. Even when I'm in a hurry I don't neglect my responsibility as a practitioner. When I attend weddings, I first send forth righteous thoughts. “Today I'm going there to save people, not for enjoying a feast or having fun.” I can usually save between 7 to 20 people at a wedding.
I sometimes pass by a person drying wheat, and I help him keep his bag open while telling him about Falun Gong, which he happily accepts.
One day on my way to Fa study, I saw five women sitting in the park. They smiled at me, and one thought flashed in my mind, “They want me to save them.” However, I realized that I might be late for my Fa study if I stopped.
On second thought, I realized that Master asked me to study the Fa well in order to save people. I turned around, parked my bike on the roadside, and approached them with a smile, “Sisters, I have valuable information for you.”
I gave them each an amulet with the words “Falun Dafa is good” printed on them. They all were very happy to receive them. I also told them about why they should quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations, and some information about Falun Gong. They were very happy to listen to me and thanked me.
I then saw an older man on a pedicab. I slowed down and started a conversation with him. I told him about the importance of quitting the CCP, and he gladly took my advice.
These people are now saved, and their future lies in our one thought. We really need to maintain righteous thoughts all the time.
On September 6, a retired CCP cadre and his friends came to me to buy corn. I asked them to quit the CCP. One of them couldn't make up his mind. I said I would give him an alias, but he didn't agree and said that only his father could name him. In the end, I said, “How about Brother Sui?” He then agreed.
As they were leaving, I sensed that he still had some reservations. I packed up the corn for him and told him the truth again. His wife, who was with him, said, “You are really doing this for our good, and I thank you. After we return home, I will urge him to say 'Falun Dafa is good' often.”
Nothing Stops a Diligent Practitioner
Another car stopped and four people came to buy corn, but the corn was all gone. They then said, “Can we pick some peanuts?” I took them into my field and thought, “Aren't they coming for the truth?”
They loved the green organic produce in my field. They picked beans, pears, cucumbers, and peanuts. They were very happy, and I started to talk to them about Falun Dafa and asked them to quit the CCP.
One woman told me that her husband worked at the Public Security Bureau. I didn't have any second thoughts but only wished to save him. I said to her husband, “Regardless of your profession, I am saving you. People at the Public Security Bureau are also victims, and today is a good opportunity. Let's just get an alias for you to quit the CCP and all of its affiliated organizations!”
I told them about Falun Gong and the reasons to quit the CCP. I gave them the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party and other Falun Dafa truth-clarification materials. I asked him to treat Falun Dafa practitioners well in the future and to help them if they are in danger. He nodded. Before they said goodbye, they insisted on treating us to a dinner at a restaurant. We thanked them but declined their kind offer.
I often collaborate with my daughter in truth-clarification. We can help over 10 people to quit the CCP within one or two hours. When we walk along the street, construction workers who have quit the CCP say to me, “Falun Dafa is good!” We wave and are truly happy for them.
I once went to the market with a fellow practitioner. We worked well together and helped 40 people quit the CCP that morning.
Two years ago, a new park opened near my home. Many workers came to pave the road, plant trees, or do other construction work. We helped them all to quit the CCP, one group after another.
During the fall, I offered them big pears grown in my orchard. They were all very happy, and commented “Falun Dafa practitioners are so kind. This is the truth.” Some even came to my home for truth-clarification DVDs several months afterwards. My husband said to me, “You are doing so well, and your customers even come to our house.”
Workers Comment, “It always rains after we get home”
Several years ago, my orchard was three times the current size. Many people came to work in the orchard. I helped all of them to quit the CCP. Most of them accepted the truth about Falun Dafa. As for the few that rejected the truth, I would wait and clarify the truth again to them during their lunch time.
They all enjoyed listening to me singing songs written by practitioners. Sometimes 30 people at a time listened to my singing. The warm, congenial atmosphere was beyond any description of words.
Some people said to me, “We often talk about you no matter where we work. We know that you practice Dafa and that you are kind. When we work in your orchard, we don't even have to worry about being caught in the rain. It always rains after we get home.” Others said, “She studies Dafa and the gods are helping her. Other people's orchards haven't made money, but hers has made a lot of money. Everything in her orchard goes so well, as she is blessed by Dafa.”
Saving people is a very serious matter. Sometimes when I fail to save predestined people, I feel very guilty. I don't even dare to look at Master's picture. Clarifying the truth and saving people is the responsibility of practitioners. It is part of our vow and historic mission. It is an opportunity that Master has given us to establish our mighty virtue. It is also the process of cultivating our xinxing and elevating our level.
Handling Tribulations with Divine Thoughts
In 2006 I endured the most severe persecution. I had broken bones in my lower back, and the bones on the bottom of my feet were shattered. My feet and ankles were disfigured, and my left leg was numb. A steel plate was implanted in my lower back. Ever since then, I kept reminding myself, “I'm not an ordinary person. I am a cultivator on the path to godhood.”
My situation was very bad. Two policemen took turns watching me around the clock, but I wasn't afraid. When the doctor told me that I would be disabled for the rest of my life, not only did I not believe his words, I asked to go home on the fourth day after my surgery.
My family was against my decision, and the doctor mocked me. The patients in the hospital didn't understand, either. A man with a broken ankle said to me, “What are you going to do after returning home? Your problems are a lot worse than mine, and I have been hospitalized for over a month.”
I replied, “I'm a cultivator. I have my Master's protection. I'm different than you. If you don't believe me, come visit me a year later.” I gave him my home address.
After I returned home, my friends and relatives didn't understand my decision. Some friends came to visit me. When I clarified the truth to them, they said, “You are like this now, so why do you still continue with your belief? Who's going to take care of you?” I told them, “Don't worry about me as I have my Master. I will show you.”
They said, “OK, if you can recover to your old self, we will then believe you and quit the CCP.” They were being sarcastic when they said, “We are leaving now, so wait for your Master to cure you!”
Within a year, I was able to do some light labor in the field. They saw that I could walk, and their first reaction was, “Wow! This is truly divine.” I reminded them, “Don't forget your words.” I took them home, and they quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations.
My process of recovery was easier said than done. Whether I treat myself as a divine being has to be reflected in my actions. The tribulations in my family with my children were a lot, but I'm not going to talk about them here. What was crucial was the first thought when encountering problems. It was the difference between a divine or a human thought.
“We have said that good or evil comes from a person’s spontaneous thought, and the thought at that moment can bring about different consequences.” (Zhuan Falun)
I succeeded in regaining all my body functions because I had faith in Master and the Fa. All day long, I studied the Fa and did the exercises in bed. Even when my whole body was trembling during the second exercise, I persisted.
My body went through dramatic changes. I gained the feeling back in my left leg on the seventh day. The first time I tried to walk, I felt pain like needles stabbing my feet. I persisted walking, step by step. I said to Master, “A lot of sentient beings are waiting for me to save them. I will use this miracle to validate Dafa!”
The word “disability” never crossed my mind. I have never used a walking stick, nor have I pursued recovery. I only had one divine thought, that I would be OK, and I didn't have any doubts.
When my feet were in pain, I told them, “My body is a divine body. It is composed of high energy matter, and I don't acknowledge this pain.”
My husband told me that I had to go to the hospital to have the steel plate removed which would cost about 8,000 yuan. I said, “No need, because the steel plate is gone already, as Dafa can do anything.”
Six years have passed, and I'm already in my sixties. I have never sensed any steel plate in my body. Everyone who knows of my experience is in awe of the miracles I experienced through practicing Falun Dafa.
Master restored my body, and I will fulfill my promise to tell sentient beings about the miracles I experienced because I practice Falun Dafa.
Master has told us that the path Dafa practitioners take is what we will leave to people in the future. What will I leave for the people in the future? An example of following Master's requirements in my daily life, removing attachments, looking within, and displaying the beauty of Dafa to sentient beings.
Fellow practitioners, let's cooperate well to fulfill our historic vow of assisting Master in rectifying the Fa and leave a magnificent history for people in the future!
Thank you, Master!
