Spanish Practitioner: Clarifying the Truth to Chinese and Western People Alike During the Pandemic
(Minghui.org) I want to share how I have become more aware that Master has paved my path of cultivation according to the needs of the Fa-rectification in these times of the pandemic.
I am a Western practitioner in Spain. I am the only Falun Dafa practitioner in the area where I live, so I cannot coordinate with other practitioners or solve any issues that may arise with truth-clarification. Instead, I have always learned from the experiences of practitioners in other areas and articles published on the Minghui website.
Our Path of Cultivation Is Arranged by Master
At the end of 2019, while talking to another practitioner on the internet, I showed him the draft of a leaflet with information about Dafa. He suggested that I find a print shop and make 1,000 copies, which would be cheaper than making photocopies in a bookstore. This seemed like a good idea, so I set to work. I found a print shop with a special offer of 5,000 flyers for the price of 1,000. I almost couldn’t believe it! I made 5,000 flyers. I felt that Master was helping me.
They gave me the flyers in January 2020, and I set out to distribute them in libraries, university facilities and social centers.
In March, there was a lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic, and all these places closed. In fact, I still have not been able to return to them. So I found myself with almost 5,000 flyers at home, not knowing what to do with them. However, in my heart I knew that in cultivation nothing is accidental and everything is arranged by Master. When the lockdown was lifted in early June, I decided to go out and hand out these flyers, leaving them in the mailboxes of homes in my area and surrounding towns.
At that time, a practitioner from another area also sent me a significant amount of flyers in Chinese. He told me that half of them were for me and the other half was for another practitioner who lived in a province close to mine. However, the practitioner from that other province told me that he could not take care of those flyers at the time, so I had to keep them all.
Again, I felt overwhelmed. Where would I find the shops or homes of Chinese residents? Moreover, I don’t speak Chinese. What was I going to do with twice as many flyers? My province is small–or at least that’s what I thought. All types of notions and fears popped into my mind, and they came up again and again.
I started giving out the flyers but still had the other half. I just did not know where to find more Chinese shops to give out the flyers. But I couldn't just keep them, as those flyers had been produced with a purpose: to save sentient beings.
“Looking at the overall situation, that’s in fact how things are at present. Don’t overlook any of the things that Dafa disciples do. Your every word, every flyer, every keystroke, every telephone call, and every letter is having a huge impact. Beings that have come to understand the facts become mobile media, and they too clarify the facts. It’s had a big impact on society.” (“Teaching the Fa at the 2003 Midwest-U.S. Fa Conference,” Collected Fa Teachings, Vol. III)
Giving Out Flyers to Chinese People
One day, while running some errands at the bank, the person in front of me turned around. His T-shirt bore the phrase, “Just do it.” I was stunned; for me it was a clear message. I went back home, took the materials and started handing out the rest of the flyers.
Many days I would go out in my car without a fixed direction, but it would turn out to be the most appropriate place. I even went to the nearby province to distribute flyers. Finally, I handed out all the flyers.
Handing out these flyers to the Chinese community has been an opportunity to improve in my cultivation and to elevate my xinxing. I ran into tests and all types of reactions.
A few times, Chinese shop owners told me to leave their stores, and some have even shouted at me. The customers nearby looked at me strangely, not understanding what was going on. In those moments, I could maintain a serene state. However, I left the shop with a heavy heart because they did not accept the materials. Fortunately, in most places, Chinese people accepted the information without saying anything. I am sure they would read them later on. There were also those who thanked me effusively.
I had a touching experience: In one shop, there was a Chinese man of about 50 years old. After looking at the flyer, he gave it back to me and said he did not want it. He continued attending to a customer who had just entered the store. I began to send forth righteous thoughts to dissolve all the evil and communist elements behind him.
Soon, the atmosphere became more favorable and he began talking to me. He said that he was an engineer and that the Master of Falun Dafa had no university degree. At first he hardly let me speak, but little by little I clarified the truth about Dafa and told him about the crimes the CCP had committed in China throughout its history. I also told him my own experience and how I had benefited from practicing Falun Dafa. I told him that we practitioners were bringing him the truth and that our Master had sent us, but that it was his decision to choose where he wanted to position himself and that his future would depend on that decision. We talked for more than an hour. Finally, he accepted the materials and even asked for my contact information. When I left the place, I put my hands in front of my chest to him, and he responded by raising his hand as well.
I think that everyone has a predestined relationship to learn the truth. Master does not want to leave anyone behind.
This summer I also distributed 600 copies of The Epoch Times newspaper and Minghui magazines in the most influential places in society.
I spent most of the summer handing out truth-clarification materials. At first, it seemed impossible for me to do, and I was filled with notions and fears. But once I made up my mind, everything just occurred naturally. Everything was arranged by Master, and I just followed the path he had paved. Even now, I feel that Master is by my side. Now that I have done all this work, I feel very happy to assist Master in rectifying the Fa.
I hope that Western practitioners do not slack off due to the virus lockdowns and continue clarifying the truth. Sentient beings are waiting.
