Master Gave Me Wisdom When I Used Righteous Thoughts to Save People
(Minghui.org) Simply because I had the wish to learn Falun Gong, even before I started doing the exercises or reading Zhuan Falun, Master cleansed my body. Since then, I have not needed any medications, as all my illnesses were gone and I have been very comfortable. Two weeks later, I learned the five sets of exercises and obtained a copy of Zhuan Falun.
I did two things right after I began cultivation: one was to destroy the other qigong books and cassettes I previously had. Secondly, I threw out all my old medications.
After that, I said to Master from deep down, “Master, I will listen to you for everything. Whatever you ask me to do, I will do it.” This is how I began my cultivation.
I read two chapters of Zhuan Falun every day. And whatever else I could borrow in terms of Master's other lectures and new articles, I also read them. I sent forth righteous thoughts often and participated in the morning group exercises.
When Master saw my wish, he had Ms. Chen [alias] come to deliver truth-clarification materials to me. At first, I was very scared; I didn't dare to go into residential buildings to distribute them. Master saw it and has been holding my hand. I have gone from handing out flyers nearby to going further distances, and from distributing to only the ground floor to all levels in the buildings. The area I covered got larger and farther.
About a year-and-a-half later, Ms. Chen said that they were running out of truth-clarification materials and asked if I could print them. With another practitioner's help, I bought an all-in-one printer and began to print a large quantity of materials.
Eight months later, our local material printing center was destroyed, and almost all the practitioners who were involved in printing materials were arrested. Ms. Chen was also illegally imprisoned for two years.
This was a sudden test for everyone. Ms. Chen's family came to find me and asked me to give them all my Dafa-related belongings. In that critical moment, I did something that let Master down. I lost my righteous thoughts and gave in. What I did left me in devastation.
However, Master did not give up on me, and I had Master's voice echoing in my head: quickly get back up when you fall down. So I made up my mind to pull myself together.
It seemed to me that Master knew that would happen. I remembered that when I first started practicing Dafa, I left a copy of Zhuan Falun at a friend's house. So my husband went there and got it. I then had the courage to continue with the practice. Thank you, Master!
Cultivating Oneself in the Process of Clarifying the Facts
When I started practicing Dafa, the Nine Commentaries on the Chinese Communist Party had just been published. According to Master, practitioners were required to go out to clarify the facts to people to save them. I also followed suit.
At first, I only felt comfortable clarifying the facts to people I knew. I then heard another practitioner trying to persuade his acquaintance to quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its affiliated organizations, but he had no success. I thought I could give it a good try since my education was fairly high and my profession was a teacher. Only after I tried a few times did he decide to quit.
I came across an experience-sharing article about a senior practitioner who was illiterate. When she helped others quit, she carried a pen and paper to have the person write their names and which CCP youth organizations they had joined. I found this to be quite inspiring. Her first thought was on saving people, whereas I always wanted to help someone quit, and I put more emphasis on the outcome.
With in-depth Fa study and continuous looking inward, I was getting more and more comfortable helping others quit the CCP.
On one occasion, I managed to clarify the facts to a counter staff at the bank. On that day, I went to the bank to deal with something for my work. Before I was about to finish, a counter staff secretly stuck a few hundred yuan into my hand. I became alert right away and declined the money. Then she tried to explain to me that this was a one-time commission based on the rules at their branch. I said to her clearly, “I practice Falun Gong.” This caught her off guard, and she asked me, “Doesn't the government disallow people to practice?”
I said to her, “Falun Gong (also known as Falun Dafa) is a Buddha Fa and a Fa of high virtue. Practitioners adhere to Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, and they are considerate of others in everything they do. We can't take things that don't belong to us. That's why I can't take it.”
She seemed to truly admire me for my response. When I told her that one would receive good fortune by reciting, “Falun Dafa is good”, she agreed.
Later on, I began to regret that I didn't save her by helping her withdraw from any CCP memberships she had. The next time I went to the bank, she was there again. As soon as I handed her my deposit slip, she said that their computer was down. When the computer came back up 10 minutes later, we were the only ones left in the bank lobby. She was in her 20s and a member of the CCP. She said she didn't want to quit as she was content with her life.
At that point, Master gave me wisdom. I began to talk about happiness. I asked her if she could ensure her eternal happiness when calamity came—would she still be content? She was silent. I continued talking: since the CCP came to power, how many bad things has it done in each of its political purges, and how many people has it killed? Because she is so young, she probably didn't experience any of that. But good and evil have their due course, and this party is due to be punished by heaven. Anyone who is part of it would be impacted. Only by renouncing her memberships in the Party can she ensure her safety.
She agreed and used “Beauty” as a pseudonym with which to quit the Party and its affiliated organizations. Interestingly, it turns out that her real name was close to her pseudonym.
After that, every time I went to this bank to deal with things, she always came to see me off to show her gratitude.
My Home Became a Materials Printing Center
For 12 years, I have used paper money marked with messages about Falun Gong and the persecution. At first, I hand-wrote the information on the paper bills. Every day when I was paid with paper money, I'd wash the bills, press them to make them flat, and then fix them up if they were a bit torn. Then I hand-wrote all kinds of phrases on them. People willingly accepted them. I have used between 50,000 to 60,000 of these bills.
Yet I also had a wish to make truth-clarification materials. I had tried many times but was not successful. In 2014, I was able to arrange with other practitioners to get a computer and what I needed installed on it. Soon enough, I was able to browse the Minghui website. Though I had no idea how to use a computer, Master helped me by opening up my wisdom. Two months later, I was able to download and print truth-clarification materials. From then on, I have taken on the task of providing materials to our local practitioners.
Miraculous things happened during the process. For example, I could only carry out very simple tasks with the computer. However, whenever I had a problem, our local practitioner who provides technical support would just appear. I knew it was Master arranging for him to come.
Another time, the printer icon disappeared when my computer was doing a system update. When I was sending forth righteous thoughts at noon time, I begged Master for help, asking him to help me get it back. When I turned the computer on, the missing icon suddenly re-appeared on the taskbar. I truly appreciate what Master has done for me.
When one person practices, the entire family benefits. My husband is close to 80 years old. He has fallen five times but was intact each time. One time, he fell from as high as the fifth floor; his glasses were broken, but he was fine.
