Spreading Dafa's Blessings During the Epidemic
(Minghui.org) Even though we live thousands of miles away from Wuhan, the coronavirus epicenter, people in my city are quarantined inside their homes. Only one person from each household is allowed to go out for 2 hours once every two days.
During our local Fa study, we discussed how to explain the facts under these circumstances. Master asked us to save people, so despite the danger we should follow what Master said,
“Validate the Fa with rationality, clarify the truth with wisdom, spread the Fa and save people with mercy—this is establishing the mighty virtue of an Enlightened Being.” (“Rationality,” Essentials for Further Advancement II)
We should believe in Master and continue clarifying the truth, and advising people to withdraw from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its affiliated organizations.
We began adjusting the way we talked to people.
Practitioner Alice (pseudonym) went out early one morning. The streets were nearly empty. When she got on the bus there was only the driver. She greeted him warmly, “Happy Chinese New Year! We must have been destined to meet because you drove such a big bus just for me.” The driver laughed and wished her Happy New Year.
Alice continued, “This epidemic came without any warning. People are so afraid that they don't even take the bus.” The driver agreed and said, “Nobody dares to go out.”
Alice began explaining the facts about the CCP's (Chinese Communist Party) persecution of Falun Dafa and why millions of Chinese have withdrawn from the Party. She helped the driver to withdraw and asked him to remember, “Falun Dafa is good” and “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” She asked him to share the information with his family and friends. She wished his entire family good health. The driver repeatedly thanked her.
Practitioner Barbara (pseudonym) went to a supermarket and stopped at the vegetable counter. Only one cabbage was left. Another woman came and asked an employee whether there were more cabbages. She was told to come back the next day. When Barbara told the woman to take the cabbage, she asked, “What about you?” Barbara told her that she practices Falun Dafa and that she thinks of others first.
They began talking about the coronavirus and Barbara said, “I'd like to tell you something important.” She told the woman that millions of Chinese have withdrawn from the CCP and its affiliated organizations in order to not be implicated for it's crimes. After withdrawing, they've felt blessed. The woman immediately agreed. Barbara then told her to say, “Falun Dafa is good” and “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” Barbara was able to talk to 8 other people before she left the supermarket. They happily repeated the two sentences and said they'd tell others.
When practitioner Carrie (pseudonym) went out, she saw a woman coming from a residential quarters. Because the woman had wrapped herself up, Carrie couldn't tell how old she was. The entire street was empty except for Carrie and that woman. Carried slowed her steps and said, “There's only two of us on this street.”
“People are afraid to go out,” the woman said. Carrie told her why millions of Chinese have withdrawn from CCP. She said they feel they've been blessed after they withdraw. The woman said, “I will withdraw with my real name!” Carrie asked her to sincerely say, “Falun Dafa is Good” and “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is Good.” The woman said, “Thank you for telling me such an important message.” Carrie asked her to share the message with her husband and children. The woman held Carrie's hand with tears in her eyes, “Thank you, Falun Dafa sister! I will definitely remember Falun Dafa is Good!”
