Using a Pure Heart to Clarify the Facts of Falun Gong
(Minghui.org) I had been doing pretty well with telling young people and students about Falun Gong (also called Falun Dafa) and the persecution. I was even frequently asked to speak up if we met any young people.
I felt happy about this, not realizing that I had the attachments of zealotry and showing off. Later, because of my attachments, several people refused to accept my ideas when I spoke with them. I then realized that it was my impure heart that caused the rejection.
“The desire to show off plus the attachment of zealotry are most easily exploited by the demonic part of your mind.” (“Definitive Conclusion” from Essentials for Further Advancement)
A Sincere Statement
A man sat at a park, playing with his cell phone. I offered him a software card that allowed him to bypass internet censorship.
He took it, quickly looked at it, and gave it back to me. He said he had no interest in learning about Falun Gong.
“It's not only information about Falun Gong,” I said. “It also includes other valuable knowledge. Knowing more could expand your worldview and help you tell right from wrong.”
He answered coldly that he did not want to learn this information because he thought Falun Gong was not practical and could not help him get promoted, keep his official position, or earn big money.
If this had happened in the past when I met such a person, I would have walked away. But that day, the word “responsibility” appeared in my mind.
This man’s judgment of right and wrong had been twisted by the doctrines of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). I thought that I had better not give up on him too easily.
I asked him if it was okay for me to sit down and chat with him, and he politely agreed.
“It is predestined for us to meet each other,” I said. “You have some knowledge of Falun Gong, so you might know that practitioners focus on moral character. Our Master requires us to be considerate of others in all matters. I do not mean to suggest that you cultivate like us, but just want to let you know right from wrong.”
“Many people have the same worldview as you, so I don't blame you. But it's also the big dye vat that has confused people. The CCP spreads materialism, and, as a result, many Chinese achieve their goals using immoral methods. But they lose their most valuable thing—virtue.”
He said, “How much is virtue worth? Who can see it?”
I said that virtue could not be valued with money, that it increases the more one acts virtuously, and that it brings health and blessings. He smiled and said he’d never heard it put in such a way before.
I mentioned the overall persecution and paid special note to the issue of the CCP's killing of Falun Gong practitioners for their organs, which is condemned by the world. The man’s expression became more and more serious.
He said disgustedly, “This is the way the CCP usually operates.”
“Every person has kindness and a conscience,” I replied. “The purpose of Dafa practitioners telling people the true situation is to awaken kindness.”
He smiled, “It's great you guys are doing that.”
I told him that he should quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations, and that I could help him to do so with an alias.
He asked me for a pen and paper and wrote down the sentence with his signature: “I quit the Chinese Youth League and the Young Pioneers.”
This man made me realize that I had to help people with a broader mind and purer heart.
An elderly man in his 70s stood along the road. I greeted him, introduced myself as a Falun Gong practitioner, and said I would like to tell him the truth about Falun Gong.
He told me he worked for the Central Party School of the Communist Party. He said it was a pity that I practiced Falun Gong at my young age.
I felt that he was a kind person, so in my heart I asked Master to strengthen me so I could help him learn the truth.
“You should know that the CCP has rewritten the history books,” I said. “The regime maintains its power through lies and violence, and its propaganda in the media is all lies. Falun Dafa practitioners live in line with Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, which is a universal principle. However, it is being cracked down on by the CCP. Dafa practitioners’s organs are even being harvested. It's evident that the Party is against these universal principles.”
I sent righteous thoughts while talking to him. He listened quietly, but then it seemed like he was in pain. He said he was suffering from several incurable diseases.
I felt sorry for him and thought I could help him. I told him Falun Gong’s founder, Master Li Hongzhi, could remove his pain if he recited in his heart, “Falun Dafa is good.”
He stood there quietly. Seconds later, there was surprise and happiness on his face. He looked at me and kept thanking me. I knew he recited those few words and it worked.
I told him that Master Li helped him and that he should thank Master. I also asked him to quit the Communist Party. He agreed to do so and was still waving to me after I had walked quite a distance away. His whole body seemed to be shining with happiness from the inside.
“Dafa disciples, you are golden light in the mortal world, the hope of the world’s people, Fa-disciples who help Master, and future Fa-Kings. Keep diligent, Awakened Ones that walk the earth: Everything of today will be the glory of the future.” (“Congratulatory Message” from Essentials for Further Advancement)
A Policeman Quits
A young fellow walked by me on the road. I offered him some software for bypassing the CCP's internet firewall.
He took it, gave a quick look, and gave it back. I then walked side-by-side with him and began to tell him about Falun Gong.
He looked at me fiercely, saying, “You have a lot of nerve! Do you know what my job is?”
I realized that he might be a 610 Office agent or a police officer.
But I remembered what Master taught us:
“Clarifying the truth is the master key.” (“Teaching the Fa at the 2003 Atlanta Fa Conference”)
The man took out his police certificate and told me that he worked for the nearby police station. He said he would bring me to his station if I told him more.
I thought I could not allow him to commit another crime against a Dafa practitioner. I asked Master for assistance so that I could help this policeman understand the facts about Falun Gong.
“Do you know why I am telling you the truth? It’s not for myself, but for your sake of awakening your kindness and conscience,” I said. “I hope you can have a good future. You should know something about us: If I wanted to gain something, why would I take the risk of being arrested to speak with you?”
He kept walking with his head lowered. He no longer had a fierce look.
“The CCP is being condemned throughout the world for its persecution of Falun Gong,” I said. “Jiang Zemin and the other Party officials have been found guilty in many countries. The Party is doomed, and if you carry out any bad orders, you will be guilty as well. A wise person would leave a path open for himself and would not blindly carry out just any order.”
He was thinking about it. I added, “To stay away from the CCP is staying away from disaster. Now, 240 million Chinese people have quit the CCP, and many policemen continue to quit the Party every day.”
He smiled and agreed to use an alias to quit the CCP. He thanked me and reminded me to be careful.
Letting people know the truth about Falun Gong is a Dafa disciple's mission and also the pledge we signed a long time ago.
Thank you, Master! Thank you, fellow practitioners!
