The Power of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance
(Minghui.org) I have been practicing Falun Dafa for more than twenty years. I strive to live by the practice's key principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance and to treat people with kindness.
Many people have seen from me that Falun Dafa practitioners are nothing like what's depicted by the Chinese Communist Party's hate propaganda. They in turn began to condemn the CCP's persecution of Falun Dafa, and many have quit the CCP and its subordinate organizations and received blessings.
Winning the Neighbors' Trust
I had many neighbors when I lived in a bungalow. I always did my best to help them whenever the need arose, and some of them trusted me so much that they even asked me to help settle their family conflicts.
A grandpa had a quick temper. He got irritated easily and could yell for half of the night. Once his daughter came to tell me that her parents were fighting again and that no one could calm them down. I went to her home and saw her mother ready to leave, with her luggage packed.
I told her, “Please don't go.”
She said, “He scolds me at will and it is impossible to live with him any longer.”
I comforted her, “He shouldn't have yelled at you, but I'm sure he didn't mean to hurt you on purpose.”
Hearing my words, her husband came over to apologize to her and promised not to yell at her again.
Since then, he has kept his word and stopped yelling at people.
Another old man somehow was despised by others and no one wanted to talk to him. After I became his neighbor, I was always kind to him, and he was willing to tell me anything. He once said that he was a lock and I was the key, and that only I could win his trust.
There was an older lady, about 60 years old. She seldom talked to anyone. One day she came to my apartment and gave me two Chinese cabbages from her garden. My husband and I were stunned because she had never given any neighbor anything. After she left, my husband said, “You Falun Dafa practitioners' kindness is really powerful and melts the heart.”
As I lived by the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, many of my neighbors learned over the years that Falun Dafa practitioners were sincere, kind, and helpful people. They began to condemn the CCP's persecution of the mind-body practice. Some have quit the CCP, including the aforementioned elderly couple and their daughter.
Brother Survives Horrific Accident
It was around 11 p.m. on July 1, 2018 when someone rang my door bell. He said he was a doctor accompanying my younger brother, who was hit by a car, in an ambulance to the local hospital. He asked me to bring some money and ride the ambulance to the hospital together.
I called my sister, who lived in the same residential area. When she got into the ambulance and saw my brother with blood all over, she was so shocked that she fell out of the ambulance. I tried to calm her down, “Don't be scared; don't worry. Our brother is still clearheaded. He has quit the CCP and its associated organizations. In addition, he believes in our Master and Falun Dafa. He will be blessed.”
We started to recite “Falun Dafa is good and Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” At the same time, I told my brother to recite the same words too.
Right after we arrived at the hospital, my brother was given a series of examinations. He had a lot of external injuries, but no bone were broken. Broken glass was all over his face and head, and his left ear was hurt the most. His back and right shoulder were scratched. His right arm had a 28-cm long and 7-cm-wide cut. His right hand was swollen and he couldn't move his fingers. A large area of the skin on his right foot was gone, and he couldn't stand. The surgery went on for four hours, and he got over 100 stitches.
Later, my brother told us what happened in detail. That night he was riding an electric bicycle back home when a taxi rear-ended him. He was thrown off his bicycle and onto the taxi's windshield. The force was so strong that the windshield was broken. He lost consciousness immediately.
However, the taxi didn't stop, and he fell off onto his bicycle again. At that moment, somehow he came to and tightly grabbed the front bumper of the taxi. The taxi kept moving and continued to push him, along with the electric bicycle, for 5 or 6 meters. When the taxi finally stopped, the electric bicycle was broken into pieces. It was hard to believe that my brother was still alive.
We were all grateful to Falun Dafa for saving his life. My brother didn't request a penny from the taxi driver. There was 1,800 yuan of medical expenses not covered by insurance, and my brother paid out of his own pocket. Since his left ear was seriously injured, someone offered to help him apply for disability benefits. He declined.
He stayed at the hospital for 10 days. A month later, he was almost fully recovered. No one could tell he was once seriously injured, and there was no scar left on his face.
