People’s Choices Are Important
(Minghui.org) I met a customer in my small shop last August. He asked numerous questions, and I patiently answered them all. He wondered why I was such a nice person.
“I am a cultivator of the Buddha Fa,” I said. “I practice Falun Dafa and follow the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.”
I told him about how I have benefited from practicing Falun Dafa. He said that a lady at his work also practiced it. She was not picky about work assignments and did whatever others did not want to do. The customer said he definitely would hire people like her and like me if he were a manager.
I was very happy to see the kindness shown on people’s faces after they heard the facts about Falun Dafa. If all of us acted like the lady at his workplace, there would be a lot of hope for people.
One day another practitioner and I clarified the truth to many taxi drivers. Five of them quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its youth organizations after learning the truth.
Displaying the Goodness of a Practitioner
A driver said that practitioners were good people and told us this story. This driver met an elderly lady who found 60,000 yuan on the street and stood in that spot for four hours until the owner showed up. The owner was in this taxi driver's car, searching for his lost money. The owner saw that lady in that spot and told her that he had lost money. She made sure he was the owner of the lost money and then returned it to him.
The owner thanked the elderly lady profusely. The lady told him to thank her Teacher since it was her Teacher who taught her to be a good person. The owner wanted to give her some money, but she refused to accept any.
The taxi driver said that she had never met such nice people. She also said she will not believe the slanderous messages about Dafa publicized by the media.
A Treasured Book
Someone from the local police station came to my store one day last summer. We were cordially chatting, and he said that he had a dream the day before. In the dream, someone held his arms and guided him to do some movements. He showed me the movements, and they looked like the first set of Falun Dafa exercises. I said that he seemed to have very good inborn quality.
I turned on the exercise music and showed him the movements. He said that was it. Then he started to practice with me. Afterward he said that this was so wonderful. I also advised him to quit the CCP. I saw that Teacher uses many different ways to guide sentient beings to awaken them.
On another day, two ladies came into my store. We chatted very amicably about healing and fitness. I told them how my body had changed since I practiced Falun Dafa.
I said how I pursued money and fame before I started to cultivate, and that in doing so, I created a lot of karma, and had many illnesses. After I started to cultivate, I recovered, am full of energy, and no longer have to take any medicine.
They were so touched and asked what kind of cultivation I practiced. I said I practice Falun Dafa. I also offered to lend them a copy of Zhuan Falun if they wanted to learn about the practice. One of the ladies came early the next day and waited for me. I suggested that she finish reading the book in one shot and cherish the chance. She said she would.
She later told me that both she and her friend read the book, and they felt that they found the book to be a true treasure. She said that, after reading the book, she felt her stomach was hot and something was turning there. I told her that Teacher was taking care of her.
A few days ago, a middle-aged woman came to my store. I saw that she looked really weak. So I told her about Falun Dafa and gave her two Falun Dafa DVDs. A couple days later, she told me that she had finally found a heavenly book and that she understood everything.
“Before I ran into Dafa,” she said, “I thought that by just chanting the incantation my health would improve. It didn’t work at all. Now, my body has changed completely after I read Zhuan Falun only once and practiced the exercises a couple times. I feel like a different person. My body feels so light. It’s so amazing.”
“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 The Essentials of Diligent Progress)
It seems that people are anxiously looking to be awakened. Therefore, we should not waste a second.
