The Truth Can “Unlock the Heart”
(Minghui.org) I took a long distance bus to my hometown in 2010. The bus was empty, and I sat in the back.
A young woman later boarded, and looked around for a short time before choosing to sit next to me. She looked very pale and had a worried frown on her face. It appeared as if she had recently been crying. I thought, “This lady must have been predestined to meet me.”
I took an apple from my bag and offered it to her. She gently shook her head. I pushed the apple into her hands. When I touched her hand, I noticed that it was very cold and covered with cold sweat. I asked her if she was ill.
She answered weakly, “I'm really sorry, but if I faint, could you please pinch my Renzhong acupuncture point?” She seemed troubled, and very worried about something.
I remembered Master's poem,
“When will life’s struggles ever ceaseBeing rich or poor is as temporary as fall foliageFor what did all lives come to this world?The truth shall free you of your worries”(“The Truth Can Free You of Worries” from Hong Yin III)
I told her that life is difficult, especially since the former Chinese Communist Party (CCP) leader Jiang Zemin used corruption to maintain control. As a result, people's moral standards have sunk so low, making society a mess.
She started to cry, and then told me her story.
She and her husband had borrowed a sum of money and bought a truck. They planned for her husband to drive it for a transportation business. After they bought the truck, however, her husband became addicted to gambling and lost a lot of money. Whenever she asked him to stop gambling, he beat her and even threatened to divorce her. She said that she no longer wanted to live, and that this was her last trip to her parents' home to say goodbye to them.
I listened to her.
Based on my understanding of Dafa, I told her that people's relationships are predestined, and that we should all follow the principles of “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance,” and be kind and tolerant toward each other.
I continued, “When you feel distressed, just recite, ‘Falun Dafa is good; Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.’ It will make you feel at peace, and things will change for the better.”
Her cell phone rang. It was a family member who was worried about her. She sat up straight and spoke into the phone, “I'm on the bus. Don't worry about me. I have just met a very kind person. What she told me unlocked my heart. I'm fine now. I will be back soon after visiting my parents!”
After she hung up, she turned to me, and said, “I really need to thank you! You have unlocked my heart. I have given up the idea of committing suicide.”
I smiled, and told her that it was the Master of Falun Dafa who saved her, and that what I said was all based on what I had learned from Dafa. I added, “Without Dafa, I also would see things differently and would be depressed.”
“Thank you, Falun Dafa's Master!” she said sincerely.
I told her about Dafa and the persecution. At the end of our conversation, she agreed to quit the Communist Party's affiliate, the Young Pioneers.
