Everyone in Our Area Knows That Falun Dafa Is Good
(Minghui.org) I live in a remote rural area in central China. Before I practiced Falun Dafa, I always tried to pick small roads to travel, to avoid people. I later started went where there were many people to clarify the truth – I rode my bicycle to supermarkets and farmer markets, and talked to people about Falun Dafa every day. I could persuade several people to quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its youth organization each day.
Face-to-Face Truth Clarification
My Fa study and cultivation have laid a foundation for better clarifying the truth to sentient beings for more than ten years.
I once talked to an acquaintance about the CCP, and how it has caused the deaths of many Falun Dafa practitioners. He said, “You hate the CCP.” I paused and thought, “Master is giving me a hint that I still have an attachment of hatred.” I looked within, and sent forth righteous thoughts to eliminate my human notion.
I have since changed my way of clarifying the truth. I start with some historical facts that show that the CCP is always changing it's core principles. This makes it easy for people to realize that the CCP is unreliable, and it helps people accept the facts about the persecution of Falun Dafa.
I once met a man in his 60s, and told him about the persecution of Falun Dafa and the self-immolation incident. He couldn't understand it. I said, “During the Cultural Revolution, Liu Shaoqi was removed, and they said Wang Guangmei was the No. 1 spy. Later, there was Liu Shaoqi's political rehabilitation. Do you still believe that Wang Guangmei was a spy?” The man then understood, “It’s fake!”
I then talked to another man, also in his 60s, who told me that he was a CCP secretary of the township, and a veteran CCP member.
“It wasn’t easy being an official in a rural area,” I said, “as the policies were subject to change at any time. You still had to say the policies were good, and that the people who did not execute the policies were wrong. You would have to offend people.” He nodded and said, “True.”
I then told him that Falun Dafa practitioners do not fight back when punched or insulted. They want to be good people and maintain good health. There are Falun Dafa practitioners throughout the world. It was Jiang Zemin who launched the persecution.
I continued talking about the communist regime, “There were six out of seven members of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the CCP Central Committee whose family members were Falun Dafa practitioners. Jiang Zemin couldn't get support for the persecution, so the Chinese regime churned out constant propaganda through its state-run media. Consequently, people don't know the truth.”
Finally, the man quit the CCP. He followed me in order to hear more about Dafa. He even walked an extra half a mile to see me off.
“To appreciate why we value virtue so much, just pause to consider what becomes of it in spiritual development. There is a longstanding religious belief that blessings will come to the virtuous, in the next life if not in this. The blessings, for the very virtuous, might take the form of a coveted position of office, great wealth, or having their wishes in life fulfilled. All of these would come to them by cashing in their virtue, so to speak. Another belief is that a person who is devoid of all virtue faces the extinction of both body and soul. It means that his soul will be destroyed at the time of his passing, and nothing of him will remain. For those of us engaged in spiritual practice, however, virtue has a different value: it can be remade straight into higher energy.” (The First Talk, Zhuan Falun)
Clarifying the Truth
It is my understanding that only when a person has virtue, will he be blessed and have wealth.
When I met a few retired women in their late 50s to early 60s they said that the CCP gives them 3,000 to 4,000 yuan per month. For that, they want to trust the CCP. I told them that no one gives money for nothing. It is a destined blessing for their goodness in a prior life.
They laughed and were happy to listen to my truth clarification. People in rural areas tend to believe in Buddha, but the atheism promoted by the CCP confuses them.
I then told another woman that Falun Dafa was good and the self-immolation was fake. She couldn't accept it, as it was different from what she saw and heard from the government-owned media. I said, “You might not know that Jesus was nailed to the cross in the ancient Roman Empire.” She then understood and blurted out, “It is the time when the Bodhisattva is in trouble.”
I enlightened that although we are clarifying the truth, in reality it is Master who is doing the work. Master has already arranged everything for us, and we just need step out to clarify the truth to sentient beings.
Clarifying the Truth After a Car Accident
I have been riding a bike to clarify the truth for many years. I ride very fast, and people who know me say I look like a person in my late 30s to early 40s. Dangerous things have happened to me, but Master protected me.
When I was walking while pushing my bike, a car hit me, and one of its wheels ran over my left leg. I was forced to kneel down, but didn't feel the pain. I know that Master protected me.
Passersby felt it was unfair, and one told the driver that he was responsible for the accident, especially since I was walking on the shoulder of the road. I told the driver, “Don't hit others next time. This time you hit me. There is no problem as I am a Falun Dafa practitioner.”
I went on to say, “But please remember that ‘Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.’” The driver agreed with what I said and quit the CCP.
Another time I went on my bike to clarify the truth in a local town. When I returned, a motorcycle hit me. I was injured, and my face was covered with blood. Many people in the town knew me, and one was kind enough to help me sit up.
Many people surrounded me, and they asked the driver to take me to the hospital. I said I was fine, since I practiced Falun Dafa. I didn't ask for money, although many said I should get a few thousand yuan from the driver. I didn't go to a hospital, nor did I take a bed rest. I recovered so quickly that my children and grandchildren thought it was unbelievable.
Village Governmental Officials Learn the Truth
I clarified the truth to the government officials in our village. They all quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations.
The current official in our village is in his 50s. A few years ago, he saw an 80-year old lady who believed in Jesus, but he thought she practiced Falun Dafa.
He said, “You are still practicing Falun Dafa with so-and-so (he referred to me)? If arrested, you would be in trouble.”
When I heard this, I looked for a chance to clarify the truth to him. A month ago, I met him and he offered me a ride to the bus station.
I told him that I practiced Falun Dafa, and then clarified the truth to him. He agreed to quit the CCP.
On parting I told him that his family members should remember “Falun Dafa is good,” “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good,” during problematic times.
Everyone in our area now knows that I practice Falun Dafa, and know that Falun Dafa is good.
A relative of a resident of our village is a medical professor who has all kinds of diseases. He didn't believe in Falun Dafa at the time, but heard people talking about me practicing Falun Dafa, and benefiting from it. He later visited his relative and met me in person. He felt it was unbelievable.
I clarified the truth to him, and he now says loudly each time he sees me, “Long live Falun Dafa!”
