That Moment When a Person Comes to Understand about Falun Gong
(Minghui.org) One night about two years ago, I was making phone calls to tell people about Falun Gong and the persecution. After I dialed one number, a man named Bo answered the phone. During the conversation, I advised him to quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its organizations. He told me that he had never joined any of them. He also asked, “The CCP is not that bad, is it?”
To help this man understand the nature of the CCP, I discussed the incident that took place on June 4, 1989 in Tiananmen Square. I told Bo that the CCP injured college students when they attacked them with their tanks. However, he laughed at me, “How old were you in 1989? Were you at the scene? How could you believe that hearsay?!” I told him, “I was born in 1968 and was in high school in 1989.” Bo said, “On the phone you sound very young. I was also born in 1968.”
Our similar ages seemed to bring us closer. I then told him that I was not at the scene, but a college student from my local area died in the massacre. The CCP pressured his family, and did not allow them to talk about the incident. His mother could not bear the pain of losing her son and later had a mental breakdown.
I let Bo know that I had a relative who lived near Tiananmen Square and that he had witnessed almost the entire massacre. Although the CCP had tried very hard to hide what happened, many knew the truth of this incident. After hearing my words, Bo was speechless.
I also talked to this fellow about the wicked CCP harvesting organs from living Falun Gong practitioners. Again, he did not believe me and immediately retorted, “It’s impossible! It’s impossible!”
I said, “I can tell from talking with you that you are a kind person. I can understand why you find it hard to believe that such a cruel crime could really happen. Anyone with conscience and kindness could not believe it. Harvesting organs from people while they are still alive exceeds the moral bottom line of human beings. It not only happened, but it continues to happen on a large scale. This atrocity is a joint crime of the army, prisons, armed police, hospitals, and other systems.”
I continued, “Our Falun Gong practitioners seek to be good people by following the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. However, the CCP has kept arresting Falun Gong practitioners and detaining them for organ harvesting. When the practitioners are detained, they are numbered, blood tested, and their organ conditions are examined. Why does the CCP do that to us? Can you imagine how we feel when we are exposing this crime?”
I also talked to Bo about the “Hidden-Character Stone” in Guizhou Province. I told him that this ancient rock bore the words, “Chinese Communist Party Perishes.” He did not believe me. He laughed at me, stating I was uneducated, “You didn’t see this rock yourself, so why would you believe these things? You should believe in science.”
I said, “I have a college degree and I am a teacher. I don’t easily believe just anything. We have lived in an atheistic environment since childhood. I understand that you have difficulty believing such things. But this ‘Hidden-Character Stone’ is real. I did see it with my own eyes. When it was discovered in 2002, Xinhuanet, People’s Daily, China Central Television (CCTV), and many other media reported the discovery, but they took off the last character (Chinese character for perish). You can check it online or you can go there to see with your own eyes.”
I said, “I am standing in the cold wind talking to you. I am taking a great risk when making such phone calls. My phone may be monitored by the CCP and located. For my safety I have to leave my home to make this call. Not every Chinese person has the opportunity to receive such a call. I don’t know where you are and I dialed this number randomly. You are very fortunate to hear these truths.”
My sincerity and kindness likely moved him. Bo’s tone became very kind and he told me he was in Wuhan. I also told him that I was in a city in Northern China.
I explained to Bo that Falun Gong is a great, high-level practice of the Buddha School and has been promoted around the world. He seemed to accept what I was telling him quite easily. Once again I advised this man to quit the CCP and its organizations. He told me that he had joined the Youth League and the Young Pioneers as a youth, and he agreed to quit them using the pseudonym I proposed for him. He then sincerely thanked me.
When I said goodbye to Bo he said, “Go home, it’s cold outside!” I was taken aback, as his response was unexpected. At that moment, a rush of heat circulated through my body, and my feelings of cold, loneliness, and fatigue disappeared.
I was deeply touched by this experience. My feeling of joy for this man was beyond words! At that moment when a life comes to understand Falun Gong, the Dafa practitioner receives his best reward. Deep in my heart, I felt that Master had used his words to encourage me in clarifying the truth. Thank you Master!
