Smog and Bad Weather Cannot Stop Us from Talking to People about Falun Dafa
(Minghui.org) The Chinese Community Party (CCP) has destroyed the environment in China and has threatened the health of Chinese citizens because of its greediness. People have to wear masks when they go out or are forced to stay indoors to protect themselves from breathing in the toxic air pollution. Red alerts for smog have already been issued several times this winter in my city.
No matter how bad the smog is, Dafa practitioners cannot stop going out to clarify the facts and save people. I would like to share a few stories.
Master Guides the Way
There are few practitioners in a county near my home, so we have been going there for the past several years to distribute Dafa materials and advise people to quit the Party. I have gone to all the markets in over a dozen townships and villages.
I was on my way to a market early one morning and had planned out a route to take. The smog was not too bad in my city, but as soon as I got on the country road, the smog was so intense that I could not see more than 50 meters ahead.
I got lost and did not know where to go. I then saw a car ahead of me and decided to follow it without any luck. I finally realized that I should ask Master for help.
After asking, I saw a street sign and I was able to figure out where I was. I then made a U-turn and headed toward a nearby village by following my intuition.
I eventually arrived and parked my car. I grabbed a bag full of truth-clarification materials and started to give them out to people. I also left a copy at the door of each house. I was able to finish distributing over 100 copies without any problem.
Another practitioner and I went to the countryside to distribute informational materials after work one evening. Fog set in, and I thought it would be worse in the countryside. I said to the other practitioner, “The weather looks bad. Maybe we should go on a different day.”
“It's okay! Let's send forth righteous thoughts,” she replied.
We then sent righteous thoughts and recited Master's poem,
“When disciples have ample righteous thoughtsMaster has the power to turn back the tide” (“The Master-Disciple Bond” from Hong Yin Vol. II)
After we left the city, the sky was clear and the stars shined brightly. Not long after, we got lost since my sense of direction was not good. Without knowing why, I took a turn, and we miraculously entered a big village.
We walked along the streets and put a copy of the materials in each door. When we saw people chatting in small groups, we approached them and handed them copies of the informational materials and asked them to read it so they would understand the facts about Falun Dafa.
Someone said, “Many people in our factory like to read Falun Dafa materials. Can you give me 10 copies?” Unfortunately, I could only give him the three copies I had left.
We also helped several people quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations.
When we were done, we both realized we did not know how to get out of the village. However, we were not too worried and continued on our way. We soon exited the village via the road we had originally planned to take. We came to understand that Master had paved our way to awaken sentient beings.
Denying Interference with Righteous Thoughts
There is an old Chinese saying: “A fog that does not get dispersed by the sun will last 18 days.” Practitioners cannot wait “18 days” to go out. Whenever the informational materials are available, I immediately head out to distribute them no matter the weather condition.
I was on my way to the countryside one day to distribute Dafa materials, but ran into a traffic jam at the edge of the city due to smog, and cars were not allowed to pass through until the smog improved. I then turned back home and studied Zhuan Falun for over an hour.
I also sent forth righteous thoughts for half-an-hour with the thought, “Disintegrate the old forces and all evil in other dimensions that are interfering with Dafa disciples' efforts of saving sentient beings.”
I set off again, but this time, I ran into a roadblock set up by the police. I thought, “No evil being is worthy of stopping a Dafa disciple from validating the Fa.” With righteous thoughts, I took a detour, bypassed the roadblock and continued on my way.
I try to avoid distributing the same truth-clarification materials in an area that I had already covered. I usually download at least four Minghui newsletters, a Minghui Weekly and three different flyers.
I arrived at my destination and easily distributed the 100 sets of materials I had prepared.
