Teacher Clarifies the Facts to Students
(Minghui.org) I am a primary school teacher and have been practicing Falun Dafa for 22 years. My position allows me to meet many young people, and I never hesitate to clarify the facts about Falun Dafa.
Representing the Goodness of Falun Dafa
People will believe only what they see with their eyes. However, many people believe what Falun Dafa practitioners tell them because they feel the kindness and selflessness of the practitioners. People judge others not by what they say, but by what they do. Practitioners, through their actions, are laying a good foundation, which enables them to effectively clarify the facts.
Schools are no longer pure lands. Parents try to influence teachers by giving them gifts, and teachers charge high fees for private lessons. To represent the goodness of Dafa, I must do well in everything. I pay attention to my every thought and action since I want to help my students think well of Dafa.
I have refused to accept any gifts since I started practicing Falun Dafa. One of the parents said to me with tears in her eyes, “There still are such good teachers nowadays!” Students look at me with respect and admiration. They experience the righteousness within me.
Many of the teachers do not prepare well for the classes they teach, but I always prepare well. Sometimes, teachers have sat in my room during a class. They wondered why all the students listened and did not misbehave.
I often told traditional stories to the students. The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) indoctrinates the children from when they enter kindergarten. I set a good example to clear the poison from their minds and help them accept the facts about Falun Dafa.
Breaking Through Atheism
Atheism is instilled into Chinese students from the time they are very young. It interferes with their normal thinking. In order to break though atheism, I told my students, “Newton and Einstein were famous scientists, who were also religious believers. Although they made great contributions to modern science, they still believed that God created the universe. Human beings have limited abilities and can only understand a tiny fraction of this vast universe.”
I drew a big circle on the blackboard and wrote two Chinese characters “Vast” in it. I then put a little dot inside the big circle and wrote “Dust” underneath it. I then explained, “The earth is like this little speck of dust in the vast universe. Human beings have not explored 95% of the universe. Does God exist in this universe? It is up to you to observe and study this question. What you say, what I say, or what the textbook says is only for information. Modern science has proven that Darwin's theory of evolution is a hypothesis with many loopholes. A lot of evidence shows that human beings did not evolve from apes.”
The class was very quiet, listened to me closely, thought about the issue, and then began to discuss the subject. Some shared special experiences. They concluded that atheism was wrong and that God does exist.
Then, I said, “Atheism does not let people believe in God or believe in retribution. So modern people have become selfish and do many sinful things. It has greatly damaged Chinese society. For example we heard about poisonous food, poisoned milk powder, and poisonous air, all of which harmed and continues to harm people.”
The students came to understand and accept what I taught them, “Humans have to follow the universal principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, respect heaven and earth, and believe in retribution.
Returning Traditional Culture to Life
Students are judged by their academic scores. Traditional culture is rarely taught at school, so I often told them stories about traditional culture. I explained the inner meaning of the principles of “benevolence, righteousness, courtesy, wisdom, and faith” that Confucius advocated, and gave examples. I told them that society would become worse if human beings no longer acknowledged these basic principles.
I also told the students stories that contained the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.” I then sent strong righteous thoughts and gradually saw them change. They are now more willing to learn, have become more polite, do not fight with their parents, and show their appreciation.
Clarifying the Truth in Class
The students concluded that “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance” is good. They also learned that I believe in Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.” Some students called me “Teacher of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.”
I sometimes sent text and voice messages about the facts of Falun Dafa to the mobile phones of the students in the six classes I taught. With this groundwork laid, I told them, “You know Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good. Some people are persecuting practitioners who follow these principles. Zhou Yongkang was in charge of the police and judicial departments. He ordered police officers to arrest Falun Dafa practitioners and the judges to sentence them. Zhou was sentenced to life imprisonment for corruption and other crimes.”
I asked them why practitioners were persecuted in China while people in other countries were allowed to believe in Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. They looked at each other. One student said, “Teacher, what they say is good is not necessarily good and what they say is bad is not necessarily bad!”
I gave him a thumbs up and said, “What the officials say is not necessarily right. We already know that Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good. Dafa teaches people to follow these principles, so Falun Dafa is good! You should act sincerely, kindly, and be tolerant throughout your life.”
When I see students, I send righteous thoughts to instill the thought, “Falun Dafa is good” into the microscopic level of their lives. When the students had school-wide gatherings, such as flag-raising events and doing morning exercises, I also sent strong righteous thoughts to clear away the evil elements of the CCP culture from their minds.
I once saw the entire playground filled with silver Falun (law wheels). I knew that Master was encouraging me and letting me know the true meaning of compassion.
