A Crab Seller's Attitude Changes
(Minghui.org) I went to visit the vendors in the countryside, to talk to them about Falun Gong. I talked with many people, most of whom accepted my information and also quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
There was a crab seller who shook his head no, and put up his hand as if to say – do not talk to me. I did not let that discourage me. I continued to approach him with a smile on my face. He told me to keep walking, he did not want to listen to anything I had to say. I simply said: “You are not busy now. Let's chat a bit. It will be good for you to hear what I have to say.”
I told him that it is actually the CCP’s fault that he did not want to even listen to me. The CCP fabricated lies to fool the people and this caused Chinese moral standards to greatly decline. As a result, some people dared to commit all kinds of sins without being aware that the enlightened beings are watching them.
I explained that it was because of the CCP that he did not believe me. The seller thought about what I said, and then agreed.
I offered him a copy of the Shen Yun DVD and told him it was the best show in the world. It presents the Chinese divinely-inspired culture. He refused the DVD saying he did not have a DVD player, and neither did anyone he knew.
I then offered him several Falun Gong pamphlets. These too he refused saying he was illiterate. Finally I handed him a pretty, hand-made Falun Gong ((amulet)). I said, “Now the calamities and man-made disasters are many. Keep this with you and you will be protected.” This he accepted.
I further explained that for the amulet to work, he needed to accept that Falun Gong is good and Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good. He said: “There is nothing wrong with the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, I can accept that.”
I asked him to quit the CCP. He said he did not attend school, and therefore did not join any CCP organizations. I kept telling him more information about Falun Gong. He was attentive and listened quietly.
I rode my bicycle to that same place three days later. That crab seller stopped me and asked if he could have some of the Falun Gong pamphlets, the Shen Yun DVD and one more amulet.
He confessed to me that he lied when he said he was illiterate. He was using that as an excuse to reject my information. The reality was that he had attended school and joined the party's Youth League organization. His son also joined the Youth League, and his wife joined the Young Pioneers. Now his family had all agreed to quit the CCP organizations.
He was happy as he spoke. He also added that after he accepted the Falun Gong amulet from me, his business improved. Never before was his business so good.
I passed that same place a few days later and once again the crab seller stopped me. He said he had watched the Shen Yun DVD and said it was excellent, he very much enjoyed the song and dance. I told him to spread the news to everyone. He nodded his head in agreement.
The next time I passed his place, he told me that he had begun to write 'Falun Gong is good' on his bills (paper money). When I inquired about it he said he got the idea when he received some currency with 'Falun Gong is good' written on the front. So now when he has time, he writes on all his currency.
I was happy and told him he is helping people know the truth about Falun Gong and accumulating good merit. We parted, smiling.
