'There Is Nothing That Can't Be Overcome'
(Minghui.org) I started practicing Falun Dafa in 1996 and am now 74 years old. I want to share two things that happened to me on my journey of clarifying the facts and saving people.
Sickness Karma Didn't Prevent Me from Saving People
I am a senior Falun Dafa practitioner who is responsible for delivering truth-clarification materials, which I do on my bike. While making deliveries, I also talk to people about the facts of the persecution [of Falun Dafa] and try to persuade them to quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its youth organizations. Recently, I developed an abscess near my tailbone that made it difficult to ride my bike.
One day, the abscess broke and was oozing a lot of pus, so I wanted to take a shower. But my son cautioned, “You can’t take a shower because you might get an infection from the water.” I replied, “I am a Dafa disciple and my master will protect me. There won't be a problem.”
And, indeed, there was no problem.
I then went out to deliver informational materials as usual. Even though I felt some pain when I rode the bike, I thought mainly about the importance of helping to save people, so I went on.
Later, back home, I had loaded up my bike and was just about to leave when I felt a sharp pain in my buttocks. I hurried to the bathroom and saw that the abscess had completely burst, with pus all over my pants and on the floor. I touched the place near my tailbone and felt that the abscess was gone.
I understood that Master Li had completely removed the poison in the abscess. I couldn't hold back my tears of gratitude. This experience strengthed my resolve to cultivate more diligently.
Although my clothes and the floor were soiled, I didn’t hesitate or have any thought of resting. After cleaning the bathroom and changing my clothes, I got on my bike.
My family tried to stop me, saying, “How can you go out now?” I replied, “This is nothing. Wasn’t there a story in history that Guan Gong [a general who served under the warlord Liu Bei during the late Eastern Han dynasty] played chess while scraping his bone to get rid of an infection? He wasn't a practitioner. I am a Dafa disciple, I can’t stay home. I cannot neglect such an important duty.” I went out as I normally did.
Unafraid of Trouble or Danger
Talking to people about Falun Dafa and encouraging them to quit the CCP is something I must do every day. Usually, I persuade 3 to 10 people a day and things go well. But sometimes I meet people who say hostile things to me. Once at the farmers’ market, I was handing out information about Falun Dafa and clarifying the facts. Most people were willing to take what I gave them. Some also quit the CCP.
Then I met a man in his 70s whose face suddenly changed and he shouted, “I think you are a troublemaker rebelling against the Party!” He threw the information I had given him on the ground and threatened, “I think the police should take you away.” He then took out his cell phone. I wasn’t scared and said calmly, “I am trying to do something good for you, so how can you treat me like this? Is it not a good thing to bless others with peace?”
The others nearby who had accepted the information I gave them couldn’t stand this man's behavior. Someone said to him, “She gave you a free booklet and a newspaper, but you're acting like a jerk. Was she bothering you?” Another said, “She is just a nice lady who wishes you a peaceful life. Don’t you want that? She has good intentions. If you want it, take the information; if you don’t, don’t take it. Why insult her like that?”
When he saw that nobody was going to support him, he put away his cell phone and left. Some of the onlookers suggested that I might not want to continue interacting with people at the farmers’ market because it could be troublesome and dangerous.
I knew they had kind intentions, but could I let someone like that man stop me from saving people or giving them truthful information? Of course not. That would be an attachment of fear. I replied, “It’s my problem, because I didn’t say things clearly enough to help him understand. Thank you for your kindness.”
I now go to the market every day to clarify the facts and encourage people to quit the CCP, regardless of the weather.
It hasn't been easy to follow the path of cultivation. However, to fulfill my mission, do the three things well, and save more people, I won’t back down no matter how difficult the situation may be, how great the risk, or how many tribulations there are. Instead, I must be ever more diligent.
With Master and the Fa beside me, there is nothing that can’t be overcome. I must follow Master and return to my true home.
