Walk the Path of Dafa and Wake Up the World’s People
(Minghui.org) I am 76 years old. Under Master's compassionate care, I have endured 19 years of ups and downs. Once at the brink of death, I am now healthy, cultivating on the righteous path in the Fa-rectification period and growing daily more mature to become a truly steadfast Dafa disciple.
Walking Solidly on the Path of Dafa
Toward the end of 1996 when I was in the hospital, a lady introduced me to Falun Dafa and told me how good the practice was.
At the time, I felt I couldn’t do the exercises, so I declined. But I didn’t totally reject the idea.
The lady encouraged me repeatedly to give Falun Dafa a try. I finally agreed to check out Falun Dafa’s main text Zhuan Falun.
As soon as I opened the book and looked at Master’s photograph, I started to cry. I felt that Master was my long-lost relative!
But I didn’t understand how precious Dafa is, so on the first day, I read the book lying down. I fell asleep before I finished reading two lines. The next day, I read another two lines and fell asleep again.
I thought, “Maybe I shouldn’t be reading this book lying down.” So I sat up and started reading from the beginning.
When I finished reading Zhuan Falun the first time, I just felt how great Master was to write so well on such profound things.
When I read the book a second time, I noted what Master says: "…one’s life is not for being human. It is meant to return to one’s original, true self." (Zhuan Falun)
I closed my eyes but couldn’t help the tears streaming down my face. I cried out to Master in my heart, “Master, I want to go back home with You!”
Before I finished reading Zhuan Falun a second time, I was able to work in the fields.
I realized the importance of studying the Fa, because all wisdom is within the Fa. I would study three lectures or listen to Master’s tape recordings or watch Master’s videos every day.
That helped me to lay a solid foundation for my future Dafa cultivation.
The New Year was approaching, so I started to make steamed buns. I made a big pot at one stretch. My husband said, “Don’t tire yourself out.”
I replied, “If I’m tired, I’ll just read my book and I’ll be fine.”
At the time, I hadn’t learned the exercises yet. After the New Year, I went to the practice site to learn them and started adding daily exercises to my Fa study.
Since then, I have not slacked off once on my cultivation path.
Clarifying the Facts to the Police
I was imprisoned and persecuted by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) several times for practicing Dafa. In the process, I got to know a few police officers.
One of them was a detention center director, now retired. I had talked to him about Falun Dafa and the truth behind the persecution. He also knew Falun Dafa was good.
One day I saw him and again tried to persuade him to quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations. At first, he was reluctant.
Then he thought for a while and asked me, “What about you? Have you quit the Party yet?”
I said, “Yes, I have.”
He asked, “Has your husband quit yet?”
I said, “I can’t tell you that.”
He seemed reassured. He said, “I’ll quit! I’ll quit! I’ll quit now! And use my real name to withdraw me from the Party.”
Afterwards when he saw me, he asked me, "I'm not a bad guy, right?"
I said, "When have I ever said you were bad?"
He said, "I've detained you before."
I said, “Now that you know Falun Dafa is good and Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good, and you try to protect Dafa practitioners and don’t do bad things, then you’re fine.”
Another one was our police station’s instructor who used to go my house to harass me when the persecution started.
I ran into him in the market. I called out to him politely.
He looked at me with sudden recognition, “Oh, it's you! Damn, you look good, and so healthy.”
I smiled and said, “Don’t you remember I practice Falun Dafa?”
He said, “It was Jiang Zemin [former Chinese dictator] who ordered us to arrest you guys. That treacherous traitor is the one who ordered us to arrest you. Please don’t…”
I told him, “You don’t need to say any more. I don’t hate you. You don’t have to worry that we hate you. We just want you to understand that Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good, and that’s enough for me.”
But when I talked to him about quitting the Party, he would only say, “Let me think about it.”
A third one was the squadron leader of my district’s Domestic Security Team.
In the spring of 2013, I was riding my tricycle on my way to a practitioner’s house when I noticed he was walking just ahead of me.
I pedaled hard to catch up with him and gave him a pat on the back. He looked back and saw it was me.
I greeted him, “Why aren't you driving to work?”
He said, “Oh, I just feel like walking for a change. It’s not that far.”
I knew he had arrested a local Dafa practitioner, so I asked him, “Are you still arresting Dafa practitioners?”
He said, “You just mind your own business. Stop poking your nose into other people's affairs.”
I said to him with tears in my eyes, “What I’m most concerned about is you! You have been dealing with Dafa disciples for so many years, don’t you already know Dafa disciples are good people?
“From now on when you see Dafa disciples doing something, just turn your head and look the other way. Pretend you don’t see anything.”
He repeated my last few words, “Oh, right. I don’t see. I don’t see anything.”
When we reached the intersection, I repeatedly asked him, “Did you hear me? Will you think on what I said?”
He said, “I’m thinking on it. I’m thinking on it.”
Then he told me to be careful when crossing the street.
During the next two years when practitioners were arrested, I didn’t see his name mentioned.
Don’t Miss Anybody with a Predestined Relationship
A Truck Driver
When I tried to give some Dafa brochures to a truck driver, he refused to take them and said something not very nice.
I argued with him, but that made him get even uglier.
Another truck driver overheard and said to him, “How can you talk like that?”
On the way home, I looked inward and realized my pugnacious attitude had caused him to speak with disrespect about Dafa.
“Compassion can harmonize Heaven and Earth, ushering in springRighteous thoughts can save the people in this world” (“The Fa Rectifies the Cosmos” from Hong Yin Vol. II)
A few days later, I made another attempt to give him Dafa leaflets. When I approached his truck, he pretended to be asleep. I smiled and walked away.
Another few days later, I went to look for him again. That time, he said, “You again?”
I smiled and said, “Yes, it’s me again.”
He asked me, “How much money do you make doing this? It must have cost you a lot to print this stuff.”
I replied, “I don't make any money. But I’m more than willing to spend it as long as you get to know the truth.”
He finally accepted the Dafa materials from me.
From then on, every time he saw him, he would ask me, “Do you have more Dafa materials? Give me a copy.”
A Taxi Driver
There was a taxi driver. When I tried to hand him a flyer, he waved both hands in front of him to let me know he didn’t want it.
That happened several times. After the incident when Wang Lijun fled to the US consulate for protection, I saw him again waiting for customers by the side of the road.
I had already passed him on my tricycle, but I doubled back, meaning to give him a Dafa booklet.
He said, “I have a carful of materials.”
I told him, “But whatever you have can’t be as good as the one I'm giving you.”
He took the booklet from me.
When I stopped by where he was waiting for customers on my return trip, he was still there, so I asked him if he'd had a chance to look over the booklet. He didn’t answer me directly but suggested, pointing to a man standing close by, “Why don’t you give him a copy?”
The man said, “Isn’t it forbidden for Falun Dafa people to distribute their materials?”
“Who says?” The driver answered. “Take it.”
Later, he used his real name and allowed me to help him withdraw from all affiliated organizations of the Party.
A Retired Laborer
There was a retired laborer who owns a little shop. I have talked to him about withdrawing from the Communist Party.
He told me, “I never went to school so I never joined anything.”
I gave him some Dafa materials.
Several days later, I asked him if he had finished reading what I gave him. He asked me, “Why do you keep giving me this stuff?”
I said, “If you don’t like what I gave you before, perhaps next time I’ll give you something you do like.”
I told him I would give him a copy of the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party.
He thought for a while and then agreed, so I did.
When I figured he'd had enough time to read it, I went over to him again and asked, “Are you done?”
He said excitedly, “This is really good. Jiang Zemin is way too bad.”
I advised him to quit the Party. He finally admitted he was a Party member and that he would gladly quit.
After that, he even helped me persuade his customers to quit the CCP.
