Helping a Police Department Director Quit the Communist Party
(Minghui.org) Once when I was working in my store, a gentleman came in. I felt that he had come to hear the truth. I greeted him, “Sir, would you like some coffee?” He said, “Yes.” While I was preparing the coffee, I talked about the chaos in today's society and that it's forbidden to be a good person. He didn't say anything but, “hmm, hmm.” I asked him if he had heard that quitting the party can give him blessings and if he had joined the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its associated organizations. He said, “It's none of your business. You do your business well and make plenty money to enjoy your own life.” And then he left. My heart wasn't moved. I was thinking that I needed to talk more with him if any opportunity arose.
After a period of time, he came for coffee again. I asked him, “What do you think of the things I told you last time?” He said he would think about it. It was very rare that a person neither accepted or rejected it when I spoke about withdrawing from the CCP. I looked within after I came home that evening. I found many attachments. Fear was the the biggest one. I was afraid of clarifying the truth on a deeper level and being reported by bad people. Such impure substance was in my field. How could I save people?
The third time when he came, I had the heartfelt thought, “I must save this person. Master please strengthen me and open my wisdom.” I got straight to the point, “Now there are so many disasters. They are not coincidences. The self-immolation at the Tiananmen Square was a hoax created by the CCP. It was a set up to frame Falun Gong.”
I talked for a while and yet he didn't say anything. He asked me, “Do you know who I am?” I didn't care and said, “Even if you are the director of the police department, I'll still save your life.” He silently took out his work badge and showed it to me. He really was the director of a police department. He said, “You're brave enough to talk about this to me several times.”
I said, “I'm sincerely speaking from the heart, and for your own good. With all my heart, I only want you to have a wonderful future. And that's it.” He said, “Your pure heart touched me. You didn't ask for anything in return. I admire you from the bottom of my heart. But if you do anything harmful to society, I'll have to arrest you.”
I said, “Don't worry. Falun Gong has been spread for about 20 years, and is practiced here in China as well as overseas. Have you ever heard of a single Falun Gong practitioner committing a crime? Do any of them steal or rob? You know very well that Falun Gong practitioners are moral and upright. They are the best of the good people.” He agreed. And I said, “So, don't you think it's time for you to quit the party?”
He agreed immediately, and said, “OK, I quit it.” When he left, he was very happy. Later we became good friends and he trusts me very much.
Once he told me that his wife wanted to divorce him. I said, “My Master teaches us that we should think from the other person's perspective when there are conflicts. If you can understand your wife's difficulty from her perspective, let go of your pride, and communicate with her often, she won't divorce you.”
Later on, he came to my store with a very delighted smile. He thanked me, “Madam, I really need to thank you. I did what you said and my wife doesn't want to divorce me any more.” I told him he should thank our Master. It's Master who taught us to consider others no matter what.
Another time, a father and a son were shopping in my store. They had been bargaining with my husband for half an hour and still didn't reach an agreement. I gave them the lowest price and they accepted it. While I wrapped it up, I started to clarify the truth to them and used the self-immolation hoax and the June 4 th Tiananmen Square Massacre as examples.
The father asked, “Do you know who I am?” He told me that he was a soldier and he experienced the Tiananmen Square Massacre. He knew the truth about it very clearly. Because he didn't want to betray his conscience to carry out the military's orders, he was dismissed from the army by his commander.
I said, “You did very well. By following your conscience and doing the right thing, you've gained blessings for yourself and your family. Now if you quit the party, you'll be blessed even more. To quit or not to quit must come sincerely from your heart.” He replied, “Then I quit it.”
The son was very happy and said, “So many people have asked him to quit but he didn't. Today you talked to him and he quit. Thank you!” I said, “You're welcome. Perhaps the predestined opportunity has arrived. It's our predestined relationship.”
In May 2012, I got a call from the residential committee asking me to meet with them. My husband was so scared that he wanted me to go back to our hometown immediately. I said, “I can't leave. I answered the phone. If I leave, isn't it acknowledging the fear of being persecuted? I need to face it calmly.”
I said to Master in my heart, “They called me because they wanted to know the truth. I must save them.” On the way to the residential committee, I recited one of Master's poems,
“Should you have fear, it will seize upon you If thoughts are righteous, evil will collapse The cultivator’s mind is loaded with Fa Send righteous thoughts, and rotten demons explode Gods walk the earth, validating the Fa” (“What’s to Fear?” from Hong Yin II)
In the meantime, I asked Master to strengthen me. “I don't want any attachment. I only want a pure compassionate heart of saving people.”
When I got there, they said to me, “Madam, it's nothing special. It's just about the election on the director of the residential committee. We need your vote.” I said, “I'm a cultivator and I don't get involved in politics. No matter who gets elected, as long as he or she is truly doing good things for people, I'll support them.”
Immediately, I changed the topic and started to clarify the truth to them. I talked about that the frequent disasters which are Heaven's warnings to humans and the self-immolation hoax. I said, “This society doesn't allow people to be good, how can it progress?” They all said, “You're right!” Finally I asked them if they had joined the communist party, the youth league, or the young pioneers. One said she was a youth league member. The other was a pioneer member. I helped them quit those organizations using aliases. As I left, they kept saying “Thank you.”
I can really feel that, when sentient beings are saved, their knowing sides are truly happy from the bottom of their hearts. I feel so grateful about Master's boundless compassion. Master has already arranged our path. We disciples just need to talk to people with the heart of saving them. It's the manifestation of the boundless power of the Fa and Master's magnificent benevolence.
