Displaying the Goodness of Dafa
(Minghui.org) I used to be a very competitive person, had many human desires, and suffered from many chronic illnesses. I started practicing Falun Dafa in July 1998 and returned to good health, but most importantly, I changed into a good person. Additionally, practicing Falun Dafa tempered me, and I developed a lot of inner strength.
While walking on the street during a hot summer afternoon in 2016, I saw a woman by the roadside who looked anxious. She told me that she had come from Inner Mongolia to attend driving school. She used to stay in a particular hotel in our area, but the hotel was no longer there. She had no idea where else she could stay, so I offered to help.
We walked from Dongfeng Road toward Sihe Road. I clarified the facts about Falun Dafa to her while we walked, and advised her to quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its youth organizations. However, she seemed absent-minded, so I decided to focus on finding her a hotel.
The first hotel was dirty, and we immediately walked out. We continued looking despite the unpleasant heat. We arrived at Sihe Road, and we saw a large hotel next to a market. The woman told me that this was the hotel for which she had been looking.
Before saying our goodbyes, I asked her to recite “Falun Dafa is Good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is Good.” I also asked her to quit the CCP, which she did.
An Octogenarian in the Rain
I was riding my electric tricycle home on a rainy day in July 2017, and I saw an old man standing at the roadside, trying to get a taxi. He was holding a beautiful pot of flowers, but several taxi drivers drove past him. A street vendor told me that the old man had been standing there for over 30 minutes, and no taxi had dared to stop for him.
Given the moral decline of our society, taxi drivers avoid the responsibilities of driving an old person alone. I thought, 'I am a Dafa practitioner: it is not a coincidence that I am seeing this old man.'
I stopped and talked to him. He told me that he was 86 years old and had been driven into town, but he needed a taxi to get home. I gave him a ride to the River East Station where there are a lot of taxis and tricycles.
While en route, I started to clarify the facts about Dafa to him. I told him about how the CCP was persecuting Falun Dafa, and their relentless propaganda against the practice.
He had heard about Dafa but knew nothing about the persecution. This suggested to me that not many practitioners talk about Dafa in detail to the elderly. I also asked him to recite Falun Dafa is Good, which he did immediately.
At the station, I tried to find a ride for the old man, but none of the taxi drivers wanted to take him, so I decided to drive him home myself. It was about three miles to his home.
The sky was dark, and it started to rain, so in my heart, I asked Master Li, the founder of Dafa: “Master, please keep the rain from coming down too hard. I'm okay, but the old man could catch a cold.” And the rain stopped.
This gave me the opportunity to further clarify the facts about Dafa to him. He asked me what he could do for Dafa, and I told him to recite “'Falun Dafa is Good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is Good.”
There have been many stories like this. I have run into people from other locales who could not find restaurants and other places. I would talk to them about Dafa and quitting the CCP. They would quit the Party and also learn about the goodness of Falun Dafa.
