People Want to Hear the Truth about Dafa
(Minghui.org) I have been a Falun Dafa practitioner for almost 10 years. During these years I have told people about Falun Dafa and helped them quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its youth organizations at every opportunity.
Stubborn Colleague Quits the CCP
Last summer, a new colleague joined my team. We heard that he was rather bossy and often started conflicts with his colleagues. As a practitioner, I always treated him with compassion and never argued with him. We got along well. I clarified the truth about Falun Dafa to him and asked him to quit the CCP. It took a while to convince him of the need to quit, but I didn't push him. I continued to treat him with compassion.
He was enthusiastic about exercising. He was also interested in learning more about the meaning of life and the reason behind some social problems. So, we talked about topics of interest to him. I always shared traditional stories about meditation and prehistoric mysteries with him.
One day, he told me that he'd met a lady on the bus who looked vigorous and healthy. It turned out that she was a Falun Dafa practitioner in her 80s. He was amazed to hear about Falun Dafa's effect on fitness and asked me to help him quit the CCP.
Colleague Clarified the Truth
Master Li said,
“Though an evil fog still lingers over ChinaAwareness of Dafa is spreading to each houseLives are rescued, minds gradually awakenedwaking, police and citizens cease to obstruct”
(“Glimpses of Goodness,” Hong Yin III)
More and more people have received Falun Dafa materials and no longer are in doubt about the preciousness and goodness of this cultivation practice. When I clarified the truth to one manager where I worked, he said that he was familiar with the material and agreed to quit the CCP immediately. He also helped me talk to people about Dafa. He told people that the "self immolation" on Tiananmen Square was staged, that the Communist Party's system was rotten from top to bottom, and how corrupt the communist officials were. He always told people that Falun Dafa was righteous and that only when people have righteous beliefs will society have a future. He was respectful of Dafa and had a positive impact on my colleagues' attitudes toward Dafa.
The Atmosphere at Work Changed for the Better
As a practitioner, I follow the Dafa principles of Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance and validate the preciousness of Dafa.
The atmosphere in the office where I worked was not good when I got there, as all my colleagues have strong personalities. One of them was known for arguing, another lectured everyone, and one thought that he was better than everyone else.
Master Li tells us to look inward in conflicts, or even if we observe conflicts among others. For that reason, I looked inward whenever I noticed a conflict. This showed me that I had the same problems they had. I sent forth righteous thoughts and eliminated those attachments.
I told my colleagues the truth about Falun Dafa, and they all agreed with Dafa. I then told them other things I learned from studying its teachings. The atmosphere in the office gradually became more congenial.
One co-worker told me that I was his role model. He said that I was always kind and smiling. I told him that I was trying to live by Dafa's requirements.
He asked for Dafa's E-books and videos of the lectures and exercises. He then downloaded other materials himself. He became a different person after he learned more about Falun Dafa and its principles.
It was just as what Master said, “... the Buddha-light illuminates everywhere and rectifies all abnormalities.” (Lecture Six, Zhuan Falun)
Clarifying the Truth on the Train
Last year, I took a train to my hometown for the Chinese New Year. A family of three sat opposite me. Nowadays, people play with their cell phones and rarely communicate. This family was no exception. All of them started playing with their phones after a brief greeting.
I wanted to talk to them about Dafa, but I did not want to interrupt them, so I waited for a good opportunity. I heard the lady talking with her friends about Buddhism on the phone, which gave me an opening. I talked about predestination and cause and effect. I told them that we must have a predestined relationship to have met each other on the train, and they agreed.
I then told them that the CCP has done so many bad things that it will be punished. When the Party collapses, all those who ever joined it and vowed to remain loyal to it will go down with it. I told them that many people were quitting the Party to be on the safe side and asked if they would like to. They all agreed to quit the CCP.
Memorizing the Fa
Many fellow practitioners shared how memorizing the Fa improved their cultivation state. I made up my mind to do it and began last year. I memorized paragraph by paragraph. I am now working on Lecture Five.
In the process of memorizing the Fa, I gained new understandings. It is just as Master said,
“Even if you have read it ten thousand times, you won’t feel there is nothing there worth reading. Rather, you will still find that there are numerous things you didn’t realize before, and you will still have many, many new understandings. That is why this book is so valuable. ” (“Teaching the Fa at the Founding Ceremony of the Singaporean Falun Dafa Association,” Collected Fa Teachings, Vol. I)
The more I read the Fa, the more I appreciate just how profound Dafa is.
As it says in the novel Journey to the West, it is not easy to get a human body and to obtain the Fa. We are so fortunate that we have obtained it. Master has extended the Fa-rectification period for us. During this final chapter, I will study the Fa more and help more people to know the truth.
