China Fahui | Everything Changes When We Put Our Hearts into Clarifying the Truth
(Minghui.org) Greetings, Master! Greetings, my fellow practitioners!
As practitioners we all know that one of our responsibilities is exposing the lies behind the persecution in order to save people. Here I want to share with you the amazing changes I experienced when I truly focused on having compassion while clarifying the truth about Falun Dafa.
I began to study the Fa diligently and learned to maintain my xinxing and treat nicely those who were persecuting me. Only by following Master will our cultivation path become wider and wider.
Some stories about saving people
Three years ago, I visited a friend to explain the facts about Falun Dafa to her. All of her family members understood about the persecution and withdrew from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its affiliated organizations. She told me: “It's not enough to save a few people at my home! Over one hundred families live in this area, and they've never heard the truth on this topic. Please go tell them and hurry to save them.”
I felt that Master was encouraging me through her to clarify the truth to more people. When the persecution first started, I only cared about my own safety, rather than ensuring other people's futures. Thus, I dared not go out to clarify the facts in the daytime.
“Dafa disciples are now the hope of salvation for the people of each region.” (“Fa Teaching Given at the Fa Conference Marking the Tenth Anniversary of the Minghui Website’s Founding”)
I said to my friend in tears: “Thanks so much for your reminder! I will come back and bring more materials for them! ” Three days later, I returned to clarify the truth and give out informational CDs in her village. At night, I missed the bus and a fellow practitioner invited me to stay at her home.
Since then, I've visited one village every week. Within three years, I have visited 56 villages.
It is not hard to clarify the truth and encourage people to withdraw from the CCP and its affiliated organizations. The most difficult thing is to persist in doing so during this tough period. There are all kinds of people in the villages, and some people might report me to the police. To avoid this, I must study the Fa diligently, send forth righteous thoughts and look inward to dissolve any interference.
Clarifying the truth on a bus and during village celebrations
There are only a few practitioners in my village. The news that I was giving out informational materials about Dafa quickly spread to the whole village.
Once, I was giving out Shen Yun Performing Arts DVDs at the bus entrance, and the passengers thought I was the ticket seller.
Another time, the ticket seller played a Shen Yun DVD on the bus. The passengers liked it very much.
During a birthday party for an elderly man, I clarified the truth to his whole family. They understood what I was talking about and withdrew from the CCP and its affiliated organizations. When I gave the man a copy of the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party, he was very happy.
An 80-year-old lady learned to recite, “Falun Dafa is good.” When I was leaving, she carefully placed her walking stick between her legs, pressed both of her hands together in front of her chest and said: “Thank you! Falun Dafa is good! I will not forget this.”
When I attended a wedding ceremony, I gave everyone there a Shen Yun DVD. I told them that they would benefit from watching it and then passing it around among their friends and relatives.
Master's compassionate arrangements
There are four small villages on the outskirts of the city. There are more than 10 miles between the bus stations and the villages. It's very hard to walk to the villages with two bags of materials in my hands. But, tiring or not, we need to go.
Early one morning, a fellow practitioner suddenly called to say: “Tomorrow I'm off duty. Do you need a ride?” I was very happy and said: “Great! Thank you for being so compassionate!” The next day, he drove me right to the villages. I finished visiting 100 houses in a day.
After hearing the facts about Dafa, a 90-year-old grandmother knocked on everybody’s houses with her walking stick to invite them to listen. When she met someone on the way to the next house, she also invited them to stop and listen to the truth. Because of her efforts, quite a few people quit the CCP and its associated organizations and took informational materials.
After he understood the facts, a seafood vendor withdrew from the CCP-affiliated Young Pioneers and took a lot of information from me. He also helped me to explain the facts about Dafa to his customers. He said he respects Falun Dafa practitioners for their selflessness.
One snowy day, I fell to the ground on the way to a house on the hill. The family who lived there agreed to quit the CCP, and that cheered me up right away.
One raining day, I was tired and hungry and covered with mud up to my knees. But as soon as I thought of how much pain Master has endured for us, I did not care about my discomfort. I became full of energy.
Clarifying the truth to the police
Snowy days provide a good opportunity to clarify the truth because most villagers stay at home. A 60-year-old man invited me to stay at his home for a while so that he could gather up more people to come. I said: “Don’t worry. I will go to every house.”
Later, he reported me to the police. I clarified the truth to the crowd who had gathered in front of the gate of the village committee. Soon, a police car arrived. I clarified the truth to the police upon getting into their car.
After I was brought to the police station and held there for about 10 minutes, I was set free. Before I left, I said, “Please remember that Falun Dafa is good and Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” The officers asked me to be safe.
It was not even 11 a.m. yet, so I decided to go back to the village, because it would be hard for the villagers to listen to me in the future after seeing the police take me away. On the bus, I said loudly, “The Tiananmen self-immolation was staged [by the CCP] in order to frame Falun Dafa.” A passenger said, “You have a lot of guts to say that! Aren't you worried about being arrested?” I told him that I was just set free because the police did not want to arrest a good person.
When I came back to the village, I told everyone who was still there not to be afraid, and that it was useless to report me to the police because they knew that Dafa practitioners are good people. Then I visited the old man who had reported me to the police, as well as the village security people participating in this incident, to clarify the truth to them. They bowed their heads in shame.
This was the first time that I had been interfered with like this in over three years. By looking within, I found the reason. I had a fight with a fellow practitioner the night before. She had asked for some DVDs, but I wanted to keep them for my own use.
“I admire your courage!”
On summer nights, there are a lot of people outside. They play cards, Mahjong or chat. Some people invited me to talk with them. When I came over, one man said: “What are you doing this for? Out here, during the day, you dare to say that the CCP will collapse soon. I admire your courage! Why aren't you worried about your safety?”
I said: “I am doing this for you! The CCP has slaughtered 80 million Chinese people and extracted organs from living people for extravagant profits.”
He said: “What you are saying is true. I'd like to withdraw from the Party!” That day, eight more people understood the truth and quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations.
When I was on a bus back home, about 10 more people withdrew from the CCP, including a young couple who used their real names.
Before I went to meet another practitioner, I developed a headache. I sent forth righteous thoughts to remove the interference, and soon my headache was gone.
On the way to the fellow practitioner’s home, I met the same young couple again. They helped me encourage the bus driver to withdraw from the CCP. As I was leaving, the young man said, “Today you've earned immeasurable merits and virtues!” The fellow practitioner thought that Master was encouraging me through this young man's voice.
Delivering the Nine Commentaries and giving out ShenYun DVDs
I carried a lot of copies of the Nine Commentaries and gave them out while clarifying the truth. I started by saying, “Happy New Year!” to people passing by on motorcycles. Most of them stopped to listen to what I had to say.
I gave out 20 copies while riding my bicycle for 30 kilometers. Later I met four or five people riding a tractor, and I gave them the five copies I had left. At first, the young driver drove away in order not to listen to me. However, I did not give up and caught up with them. They then changed their minds and happily took the booklets.
In a barber shop, I met a deputy chief of the police department. After listening to me, he agreed to withdraw from the CCP. I gave him an informational brochure and encouraged him to read it carefully at home.
I started to give out Shen Yun DVDs in a wholesale supermarket near my home. I treated the surveillance cameras mounted overhead as the beings who had come for the Fa.
I often went to the bus station nearby. Usually I would give out over 100 Shen Yun DVDs on five or six buses. In addition, I also visited some construction sites, gas stations, and small stores to deliver the materials.
Once, I came upon two minivans parked under a bridge. I told the people inside: “Everyone gets a Shen Yun DVD. It's the No. 1 show in the world.” One person then pointed at his badge, and I realized that all of them were policemen. I said: “When you take off the uniform, aren't you just like everybody else? Even the Party head wants to be saved.” They all smiled and accepted the three DVDs, saying, “Take care!”
A turning point in upgrading my xinxing
Since I had such a smooth experience giving out Shen Yun DVDs, I developed an attachment to doing things, which left a loophole for the old forces to exploit. One day this June, when I tried to give a DVD to a policeman, he took away my package. He took me to the police station. I clarified the truth to all of the police there before I was set free.
When I came back home, I found that sadly my photo of Master, Dafa books and computer had been confiscated.
I called a fellow practitioner and told him what had happened, and that I planned to go to the police station to ask that my things be returned. He said: “Please awaken their conscience with your compassionate heart. Take this opportunity to let them know the truth and that they should stop persecuting practitioners. Then more practitioners could openly clarify the truth and bring bright futures to more people. If we fight with non-practitioners and have negative thoughts about them, they may become worse. That is not in accordance with the Fa. They need to return your items based on their own conscience. That would be best.”
At first I didn't agree with him, even though I could sense that his suggestions were from the viewpoint of the Fa. Later he said: “After we talked, some things that had hung heavily on me for three months disappeared. I felt light and relaxed.” I realized that Master had helped him remove those attachments because his words were in accordance with the Fa.
I decided to study the Fa diligently for several days to be in a better cultivation state.
When I was ready to go to the police station, practitioners sent forth righteous thoughts that morning to support me in clarifying the truth to the police.
The guards at the entrance said that their bosses were not in that morning. I then went to the back door to check every passing car.
Two hours later, a policeman in his 30s came by. I said: “The Party has slaughtered 80 million Chinese people and harvested organs from living practitioners. But you work so hard for this Party every day! Please consider yourself and your family. What will your future be when the truth becomes known to all? At that moment, you won't be able to blame your crimes on the upper-level authorities, because they will be gone by then. Please think twice before you persecute innocent people.”
He asked: “What can I do? I need to feed my family.” I said: “You can protect Dafa practitioners quietly, without being noticed. That will bring you good fortune.”
Then I asked him to give my truth-clarification letter to the section chief. He promised to recite sincerely, “Falun Dafa is good; Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good,” and accepted my advice to withdraw from the CCP and its affiliated organizations.
Later, I told several fellow practitioners what had happened. They said that before they were always angry at the police. Now they realized the power of compassion.
A few days later, I had a good conversation with the section chief for about half an hour.
The next day, I was reported to the authorities and met the section chief again. He said, “You've been reported on again.” Then he said: “Come on! I will drive you back. Do not clarify the truth outside. Take care of yourself!”
Later, I wanted to clarify the facts to him further. I said: “Thank you for giving me a ride last time. Today, a lot of policemen protect practitioners without being noticed. They've given themselves a way out. You are not a bad person. If you understood the truth, you would not do those bad things!”
He said in a low and deep voice: “Thank you! You did not expose what I had done last time and gave me a second chance, even though I had confiscated your properties. ”
I wept upon seeing that his conscience was waking up. Thank you, Master, for teaching me Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance and arranging for other fellow practitioners to support me when I clarify the truth!
I deeply feel that Master’s great compassion can dissolve all wrongdoings and give people an opportunity to change. Through this experience, I felt the power of compassion. In the future, I will cultivate more diligently.
Above are my recent experiences. After Master helped me remove karma, I felt very good when doing the fifth exercise. Now I also get along with several fellow practitioners that I used to have a problem with.
