“Do You Have a Temper?”
(Minghui.org) Having practiced Falun Dafa for 18 years, I follow the principles of “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance” and face whatever happens with a smile.
I'm an office worker. For a routine inspection, I was to receive the investigator. I led her to my office and handed her the relevant materials. I left her alone after a simple greeting so that she could focus on her work.
After a while, she asked, “Do you have a temper?”
Surprised, I asked her, “Why?”
“From your peaceful appearance and the way you're talking, I feel you're a calm and even-tempered person.”
I replied, “Actually, I used to have a bad temper. Among my siblings and me, my mother worried about me the most. I changed though, all because of Falun Dafa.”
She was shocked. “Falun Gong?”
“Isn't it banned by the government?”
“It's only because a few communist officials in power launched the persecution. It has been over 10 years. Most people who take part in the persecution were deceived, too. Once they know the truth, they will stop. Everyone has a kind side, after all.”
I handed her my copy of Zhuan Falun, the main book of Falun Dafa. She read for a while and said, “Indeed, the book is full of good things. It's totally different from the media's propaganda.”
I told her about how my family life improved after I learned from what Master Li said:
“As a cultivator, you have to be a good person wherever you are, and you have to be considerate of others--so in the home why can't you be considerate and understanding of your own husband?” (“Teaching the Fa at the Meeting with Asia-Pacific Students”)
Then she asked me what kind of skin care product I use, and why my skin looked so good. I smiled and told her, “The only thing I 'use' is practicing Falun Dafa.”
When it was time to leave, she said, “I learned a lot today. I'll treat my husband better from now on.”
A couple of days later, I called her to ask something about my work. She told me on the phone, “You know what, whenever I encounter unhappy things, either at work or at home, I can bear it as long as I think of your peaceful face.” I told her, “It's all because of that book (Zhuan Falun).”
