Following the Principles of Falun Dafa While Cooking for Store Employees
(Minghui.org) I found a job at a store to cook meals for the store employees in 2004. At the beginning, I showed the grocery receipts to the store owner each day.
A few days later, my boss, the store owner, asked me to stop showing her the receipts and just let her know how much I had spent, which shocked everyone at the store.
It seemed to be a small thing to me, but it was a big deal to the other employees. The store owner had never trusted anyone before and I had earned her trust in a few days.
My boss said, “You Falun Dafa practitioners are different from other people. Observing what you have done in the past four to five days, you really do things according to the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.”
Negating the Persecution
I was once illegally arrested when I was posting Falun Dafa flyers and I was taken to a police station. An officer asked me to pay a fine before releasing me. I told him that I did nothing wrong and would not accept such persecution. After discussing with other officers, they told me that they were going to take me to a detention center. I said that I refused to go any place but home.
They later took me to the District Domestic Security Division. The officers there yelled at me and attempted to scare me. I told them that Falun Dafa is being persecuted, and that there is no existing Chinese law that forbids practicing it.
They said that they had to follow orders from their superiors. I told them that no matter who ordered it, or who acted actively or passively, they would be held accountable for getting involved in the persecution. I asked them not to be involved, which would harm others as well as themselves.
Several officers looked at each other, and said, “You can go home now.”
“You Are Doing the Right Thing”
My boss knew that I was facing trouble the day I was arrested. They were surprised when I showed up the next day, and they asked me what had happened. I said that I told the police the true facts about Falun Dafa, which they understood and they let me go.
The store owner was delighted. She wanted to read the book Zhuan Falun and to see why I persisted in practicing Falun Dafa.
When a fellow practitioner was arrested. I went to the police station, 610 Office, detention center and the labor camp to ask for the practitioner's release. Sometimes when I could not make it back on time to prepare meals, I called my boss asking for leave. She understood and said, "You are doing the right thing.”
