Customers Return to My Little Store
(Minghui.org) I am fortunate to have returned to Falun Dafa after a ten-year absence. I regret the wasted years and I’m determined to cultivate diligently.
A friend invited me to go with her to watch a qigong video back in the summer of 1996. I did not hesitate to attend and it turned out to be the lecture series for Falun Dafa. The founder and teacher of Falun Dafa – Master Li – encouraged us in the video to watch one lecture per day for nine consecutive days.
I watched the lecture series and learned the five exercises, but did not really understand cultivation. I read Zhuan Falun and thought that it only taught people how to be good. I did not grasp its other content.
The Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) mass propaganda defaming Falun Dafa began to appear on television in July 1999. I closely followed the reports. Deep down, I did not believe any of it, but I stopped practicing. I did not dare mention Falun Dafa after the persecution began – for ten years.
Coming Back to Dafa Cultivation
A lady came to my little store in April 2011. She told me about Falun Dafa and the persecution, and that the “self-immolation” incident was a complete hoax. She further explained that the CCP believes in atheism so that it dares to commit such terrible sins.
She also talked about withdrawing from the CCP, to ensure my safety. I was not sure what she meant at first, but she made it clear to me when she said that whomever I believed in, I would belong to, and that would determine my future.
When we were young, we did not know how dangerous it was to pledge our lives to the CCP. Practitioners now understand that humans were created by gods, and whoever follows heavenly laws will prevail. To fight against divine principles is to court disaster. Not only did I withdraw my membership, I also began to practice Falun Dafa again. I regretted that it took me so long.
I found my copy of Zhuan Falun and read it straight through. I began to have a fever, was cold, sleepy, vomited and had diarrhea. I was being purified.
Another practitioner came to see me the next day. She spent one night with me to study the Fa and send forth righteous thoughts for me. I did not waver because of the symptoms, I knew it was happening for me to eliminate my illness karma.
My sister came over to check on me the following day. She brought me medicine. I would not take any of it, but I did not tell her that. When she left, I began to feel better and soon was well. I have not taken any medications now for six years. I study the Fa, exercise and tell others about Falun Dafa.
I am a practitioner: I hold my words and deeds to Falun Dafa cultivation standards. I treat everyone with honesty and kindness. Practitioners should not be moved by attachments. By improving my xinxing and becoming broadminded, I have been in a good mood every day. As a result, my business is doing well.
I allow my customers to return any items they are not satisfied with. So my customers are loyal and return to my shop. They know I am an honest person, and my prices are fair.
Most importantly, I am able to clarify the facts to people at my store. Many people have come to know how wonderful Falun Dafa is. I tell them to repeat “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!”
One customer walked into my store on the arm of a friend because she had very poor eyesight. She was poorly dressed and looked very unhealthy. I gave her a Dafa amulet and suggested that she repeat daily, “Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!” She hesitated at first, but in the end took the amulet and my advice.
A group of four women came to the store six months later. One of them asked me if I remembered her. At first, I did not realize it was the woman whom I told to repeat the two phrases. I was amazed by how much better she looked. She walked without assistance, and her eyes were better. She was dressed well and her hair was permed and styled. She told me that her transformation was all because she repeats daily, “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!”
Whether she repeated the phrases daily or not, she had received blessings for her good thoughts and support of Dafa. I felt happy for her and for all those I have helped save. I gave each of her friends an amulet, and we talked more about the amazing power of Falun Dafa.
A middle-aged woman wearing goggles once came into my store. The goggles were to protect her eyes from the sunlight. I told her about saying “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” She was receptive and took some truth-clarification materials home.
She came to my store again two months later without wearing the goggles. She said her eyes were much better. I then encouraged her to withdraw her membership from the CCP. She agreed and then asked me for more materials. This reinforced my belief in the power of Dafa and encouraged me to continue telling more and more people how they can benefit from Dafa.
