[Celebrating World Falun Dafa Day] Falun Dafa Restores People’s Sense of Right and Wrong
(Minghui.org) Falun Dafa practitioners raise awareness of the goodness of this cultivation practice and of the fact that it is being persecuted in China. More importantly, Dafa restores people’s sense of right and wrong.
Thinking of Others First
I missed my bus to work and took a taxi. The driver was a young man who said he was 19. I talked to him about Falun Dafa and said that it teaches people to be good.
When I told him that it was important to think of others first, he said, “Think of others first? That sounds different. No one ever told me to think of others first. My mother suggested that I try to deceive people. I’m always thinking of ways to get more money from my passengers.”
I asked him how he felt about doing that.
“It is so tiring,” he said. “It would be great to do what you said. Just hearing that made me feel good.”
Arriving at my work, he smiled and did not want to charge me. I told him, “Dafa practitioners do not take advantage of others.” He reluctantly accepted my money.
On my way to the bus stop the following morning, his taxi stopped next to me.
“I’ll give you a ride,” he said. “And I won't charge you because I want to hear more about Falun Dafa.” I hesitated a little before getting into his car. I chatted with him about the principles of being a good person that I’d learned from Dafa.
He asked for my phone number and did not charge me, but I still paid him. He only accepted enough to cover the gas. I looked back when I entered my office building. He was looking at me and was reluctant to leave. I sensed that Dafa had awakened his conscience and was glad for him.
A Life-Threatening Condition Becomes Treatable
A distant cousin was hospitalized in a provincial hospital. The doctors said that one his kidneys was necrotic and had to be removed, while the other one was uremic.
There were many people in his room, and I could not say much. He looked pale and depressed.
I chatted with his wife later and told her that I practiced Dafa. I said that those who practice it or have a positive attitude towards it can benefit. I also told her about the persecution being carried out by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). I told her to ask my cousin to recite, “Falun Dafa is good; Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.”
When I called a week later, my aunt told me that he had been misdiagnosed, that he had kidney stones instead. After surgery, he returned home and recovered completely.
At my aunt's birthday party he came with his entire family of about eight people.
During lunch, his wife took me aside and whispered, “I told your cousin what we talked about in the hospital. Instead of sleeping that night, he recited the two sentences you told me and felt better by the next morning. A doctor thought he looked different that day and ordered more tests. We were told that he had been misdiagnosed.”
“I Am So Fortunate to Have Met You!”
I was arrested and held in a detention center for filing a complaint against Jiang Zemin, the former head of the communist regime. I met a young lady detained for prostitution. She was rude and uncouth, but I chatted with her and told her that I practiced Falun Dafa. I talked about Dafa and the CCP's persecution, including my filing a complaint against Jiang. I noticed she listened carefully.
I advised her to be a good person and asked her to recite, “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” She recited the words before she went to sleep and after getting up every day. Within a few days she had changed completely.
She said to me before her release, “I was upset about my bad luck when I was detained and fined 5,000 yuan. Now I feel just the opposite. I'm so lucky to have met you. The fine is so worth it. I don't want to prostitute myself anymore.”
She called me before the 2017 Chinese New Year and asked me if I thought she was capable enough to open a noodle restaurant. I encouraged her and said that she should never forget the two sentences I taught her,
Two days before I wrote this article, she opened her noodle restaurant. I believe that she will be successful, because she promised to always recite, “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.”
