Seizing the Time to Save People, Doing Well What a Dafa Disciple Should Do
(Minghui.org) Greeting, my respected Master! Greetings, my fellow practitioners!
Another year has passed. Looking back over my cultivation in this past year, I didn’t do anything great but just cultivated myself and did the three things as usual. I can’t express my appreciation enough to Master, and feel very honored to be a Dafa disciple.
Every fellow practitioner has worked on a project, and I think that I am more suitable to clarify the truth face to face. By doing this, I can see very quickly my cultivation status and adjust myself.
The best environment for face-to-face truth clarification is at tourist attractions. One day I went to a tourist spot and stood near a tour bus. The tour guide stood in front of me. Two fellow practitioners told me that he had done something bad before. I had only one thought: “I want to save him. I know that whatever he did before was due to the evil elements behind him, and he came to this world for Dafa, too." I treated him with compassion and I sang the Dafa song “Awakening.” When he heard it, he looked at me and looked at the display board with information about Falun Gong, then he silently left.
One day a fellow practitioner complained that a security guard tore her flyers. She wanted to complain. I suggested to her that we should treat the guard with compassion. I told her that we were here to save people. Maybe the security guard didn’t know the truth about Falun Gong and listened to the lies told by the tour guide. I talked to the security guard and said, “If you don’t know the truth and tear our flyers, it’s all right, but if you tear our flyers after you understand the truth, then it’s wrong.”
The next day, I smiled at the two security guards, and they wondered why I still smiled at them. They said that I had caused them trouble and they asked me how much I got paid per day. I said, “Throughout the years, we have been beaten and yelled at by tour guides, and our flyers and banners have been snatched. But as Dafa disciples, we didn’t respond with bad words or bad behavior. The CCP is harvesting organs from living Falun Gong practitioners every day and selling them for huge profits. The Chinese tourists have no idea this is happening. Please tell me, where is justice, morality, and conscience?”
The security guards accepted my DVD and flyers. I told them to go online to learn the truth about Falun Gong. They promised me they would. The next day, I asked them whether they had checked the Internet. They asked me for more website information. I think they already understood the truth to some extent.
A cultural festival was held in a tourist spot. We thought that it was a good opportunity to clarify the truth, and we knew that a press conference would be held. We asked the staff what time the press conference was scheduled. We worried that we might miss it. Noon passed, and we knew that we shouldn’t wait any more, so we started to look for the press conference venue.
We went over to the crowd with informational flyers and cards. Thanks to Master’s guidance, we saw that the government officials were walking in the same direction to the press conference. We quickly gave them our flyers and cards and were running out of cards. A staff member came over to us and asked us to distribute them elsewhere. He accepted a card and I left. I didn’t want to give up easily, because some of the officials had not gotten anything. An official started to walk past me and I told him about organ harvesting and the truth about Falun Gong. He got very angry and said that the CCP doesn’t care about human life. He accepted my card.
Many foreign tourists were there, and I thought we should save more people. An elderly English lady and a little girl walked by, and I spoke to them. When I mentioned organ harvesting, the lady said she had heard about it before and had told her friend, but her friend didn’t believe it. I gave her some cards, and she said she would give them to her friend to check the websites online. She said she wanted to practice Falun Gong, and I told her about her local practice site. She seemed quite pleased.
We also like to distribute flyers after school. A parent came over and asked us where we got our flyers. I said the photos in the flyers were taken by helpful people and were valid evidence. He asked again who had sent us there to distribute the flyers. I told him that we represented justice and were there on behalf of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. After a bit, he gave us a big thumbs up and accepted our flyers. We also asked the students to go online to find Zhuan Falun, and many students thanked us.
Langkawi is a beautiful island, but no Dafa disciples live there. Twelve of us decided to go there to clarify the truth. We took an 11 p.m. bus from Kuala Lumpur and arrived at the harbor at 7 a.m., then we took another hour long ferry ride to reach Langkawi. The interference during the trip was huge. I kept feeling nauseated. I tolerated it because I didn’t want to interfere with fellow practitioners who were resting. I asked Master to give me strength and I felt better.
Most residents on the island are Malay. They are very kind and seemed very pleased to accept the truth of what we had to say. Many kind people were waiting for us and we didn’t want to disappoint them. I talked to a taxi driver about organ harvesting, and he was shocked and couldn’t believe these evil things are happening. I gave him flyers and a Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party DVD. I told him to tell more people about the persecution, and he said he would.
When it was time to go back, I clarified the truth to a Malay man who operates a car rental business. He asked whether I had more flyers so that he could put them out and people take them. I told him that the flyers are very precious and that we use them to save people. We couldn’t just throw them away. He said he wouldn’t and understood. I was still worried, so I observed him from far away. I saw him give a flyer to each person, and I felt relieved and left.
After thousands of years of waiting, people are longing for the truth and to obtain the Fa. We can’t let our laziness stop us from saving more sentient beings. We need to put sentient beings in our hearts and save more people – we are racing against time. Only then are we being real Dafa disciples and truly helping Master in Fa rectification.
Sending forth righteous thoughts in front of the CCP embassy is another thing I have been doing. Sometimes people came up to me to learn the facts, but also sometimes I got interference. One day, a plainclothes police officer came over to me and I started to explain the truth to him. He didn’t want to listen and he copied my ID and insisted that I remove the banner.
He said, “I can’t get after you because you are almost the same age as my mother. You should be at home playing with your grandsons and drinking tea! Why are you here?” I told him, "The CCP is holding thousands of Falun Gong practitioners in labor camps, prisons, and detention centers, and many of them have had their organs harvested. How could I stay at home? If your relative, friend, or colleague suddenly disappeared, wouldn’t you want to find him? At no other embassy do people come to protest every day like at the CCP's." He seemed to understand and left. I think I will continue to protest the persecution there, let more sentient beings know what’s going on in China and how the CCP persecutes Falun Gong, so that more people will be saved.
The petition to end forced organ harvesting is circulating now, and I think it’s a good opportunity to save people, so I also take part in this activity in my area. I distribute flyers to people and ask for their signatures. When they hear what I have to say about the organ harvesting, many of them are glad to sign. I am happy for them, too. Some of them took my flyer and, before I had a chance to clarify the truth to them, they had already signed. One day a man came over and I gave him a flyer and asked for his signature. He said organ trading also also goes on in Vietnam and India. I told him, "This is different. In China, the state, the government, officials, the army, and hospitals are taking part in the forced organ harvesting. In other countries, people are selling their organs on the black market. He said he would sign immediately. Then I clarified the truth to a female security guard. She gave me a thumbs up and said, “Good job.” I am very happy for them because they were saved. I hope more people can be saved.
I also thought that I should be circulating the petition in hospitals. So I went to a hospital to get signatures. A nurse told the doctor what I wanted to do. A Malay female doctor signed without hesitation and accepted the flyers and cards. A Chinese female doctor didn’t sign, but accepted the flyer. When I met this doctor for the fourth time, she said she was waiting for me and asked me a lot of questions. We talked for 15 minutes, and I answered all her questions patiently. She finally signed and ask for more websites so that other doctors could sign, too, after they got more information online.
I treasure the environment here in our country and our freedom. Our relatively open environment is precious for saving sentient beings. We have no excuse to not do well here, because in Hong Kong, I experienced a difficult situation and interference during truth clarifying the truth.
In May, three of us went to Hong Kong. The CCP-sponsored “Youth Care” group obscured our banners at the tourist site. They knew that we were from Malaysia and wanted to chase us away. At noon, some of us went to eat lunch while the rest stayed put. I saw one Hong Kong practitioner holding a banner in a crowd, so I walked over to hold a banner. When a “Youth Care” girl hit me, I walked away a few steps, then she hit me again. Fellow practitioners asked me to send forth righteous thoughts, so I went. The lady also snatched our banner and threw it far away.
I was sending forth righteous thoughts and suddenly I heard a loud noise. An elderly Hong Kong resident was scolding the “Youth Care” people. At 5 p.m., the old man came up to me and asked how I could sit in this small area. Many residents here see through the evil nature of the CCP and know what is good and what is bad. After they learn the truth, they can be saved. I feel that clarifying the truth in Hong Kong is not easy, because they are facing evil every day but manage to keep a calm heart. I know the situation in mainland China is even more evil and not easy. Master sent me to cultivate in a relatively easy environment, so I can’t forget who I am or forget about my mission and responsibility. I will try my best to save more people.
I have so many stories to tell from the past year of cultivation, but I can’t tell everything. Our responsibilities are huge. I will remember Master’s teachings, cultivate diligently, and do the three things. I won’t let sentient beings down or disappoint Master.
Thank you, Master! Thank you, all!
