Neighbors Change Their Hearts Toward Dafa
(Minghui.org) I moved to another building a few years ago, and most residents there were employed in high-level management positions or were professionals. Unfortunately, they would tear down Falun Dafa stickers and posters. They also knew that I practice Falun Dafa and I was taken to prison a few times.
The neighbor downstairs kept threatening to report me to the police. Another neighbor, whose entrance faced mine, would open the door whenever I opened my door to find out who came or left my home. An upstairs neighbor was a senior middle school teacher who actively monitored me daily. If I went out to clarify the truth about Dafa at 6:10 p.m., she would wait for me downstairs. When I changed my time to go out, she would wait downstairs and ask me where I was going. The atmosphere was quite intense and I wondered what to do.
As a Falun Dafa practitioner, I knew I just had to study Master Li's (the founder) Fa to solve any issues on my part.
So I initiated contact with them. I remained kind, pleasant, and compassionate in my heart. Yet some barely responded with a grunt when I greeted them. I knew I had to continue working on elevating my mind.
Developing a Good Relationship with My Neighbor
The apartment upstairs had plumbing problems, with water dripping into my home three times. The first time, the people up there forgot to turn off a water faucet. When I told them, they said nothing. The second time the water pipe broke and lots of water flooded into my home. I went upstairs immediately to help them. They were a little bit moved and thanked me. The third time, the water leak caused my electricity to short out. The maintenance man had to drill a few holes before finding the cause.
This time they told others that their downstairs neighbor was really nice and understanding. They said that other people would have asked a few thousand dollars for the damage. They said that they would no longer consider moving.
When I returned from going out to talk to people about Dafa one night, I ran into my neighbors from upstairs. This time I thought that I must clarify the truth to them. So I asked the wife to come to my home and asked her if she was told to monitor Falun Dafa practitioners. She said no, hesitatingly.
“Falun Dafa is a high-level cultivation way of the Buddha school,” I said. “Falun Dafa practitioners are all good people who live by the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.”
I also mentioned the miraculous healing effects of practicing Falun Dafa and Dafa’s beauty. She mentioned that her husband just had lung cancer surgery and the doctor gave him only three months.
She also mentioned that she had something on her face which could cause death or paralyzes to half of her face. Then she started to cry. I tried to comfort her. After she left, I put together some informational materials about Dafa, brought them to her, and persuaded both of them to quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). I told them to recite sincerely and frequently, “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good”.
After two weeks, she was very happy. She came to my home and told me that her husband was much better and could eat two bowls of rice. She also said that her face was also no longer painful.
Grateful to Falun Dafa
She said that they got up at 4:00 a.m. every day, played the DVD I gave her and respectfully recited “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” many times.
When I met with the couple after some time, they showed me a medical test result, which indicated that the husband had recovered.
After a few days, I visited them in their home and persuaded their entire family of eight to quit the CCP. They also signed a petition about suing Jiang Zemin, the former head of the communist regime. I asked her if she would defend Dafa and she said yes.
When she learned that people were knocking on doors to look for me, she said, “Who are you looking for? She is a good person—in fact, better than you. You don’t need to look for her. She is very busy and has guests, so you should leave.”
Now they recite “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” as often as possible. They also listen to the Dafa lectures, and their health has been fine for the past few years. She even took me to her friend’s home to talk to her about Dafa. By telling them about the power of Dafa, and using her experience for what it did for her, she persuaded that family to quit the CCP.
Some other neighbors quit the CCP and others accepted the book the Nine Commentaries on the Chinese Communist Party.
Now at the entrance of our unit, the words “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good, Falun Dafa is good” hang in clear sight.
