Saved from the Edge of Disaster- My Son Finds His Way Back to the Truth
(Minghui.org) My son was born in 1995. He was four when I started practicing Falun Dafa. His purity and compassion manifested in many ways. When he was five I heard him tell his friends, “I’ll show you how to meditate.”
Sometimes I read Zhuan Falun to him before bedtime. He asked me questions. Some of them were exactly what Master talked about.
After my son started elementary school, I read him cultivation stories from Minghui Weekly. He knew truth clarification materials were precious and whenever he saw discarded flyers he would bring them home. He also told me whenever he found any content that slandered Dafa in his school textbooks.
When I read the Falun Dafa books, I noticed some words were pronounced one way by Master, but were different in the dictionary. When I asked my son the correct way to pronounce them he said, “You should pronounce them the way Master does.”
Due to the persecution of Falun Dafa I was imprisoned when my son was ten. My husband was afraid to let our son hear or read anything about Falun Dafa.
My son completely changed during the eight years I was away. When he wrote me while I was in a forced labor camp he repeated what the textbooks said about religion. When he visited me in the camp, he told me not to “get involved in politics,” a typical brainwashing tactic used by the Communist Party to slander people who speak out about injustice.
Looking at my young son I was deeply worried that his innocence and inborn quality had been destroyed. I told Master, “I haven’t cultivated well. I can’t safeguard my son's innocence and compassion. Please protect him and look after him.” I completely let go of my attachment to my son and entrusted him to Master.
By the time I was released from prison in 2017 my son was attending college in the United States. When I contacted him and tried to talk to him about Falun Dafa he didn’t want to talk about it. I sent forth righteous thoughts to eliminate any incorrect notions within myself and asked Master to help.
I realized he must be lonely because he was alone in a foreign country. I told him about NTDTV and other practitioner-run media and suggested he look into them. We were able to talk about some of the programs.
We talked about the trade war and the anti-extradition bill in Hong Kong. My son was angry with how the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) deceived the Chinese people. He thought the CCP would soon collapse.
I explained the importance of quitting the Communist organizations and suggested he take his advisor to watch Shen Yun Performing Arts. He did. This was the first time he saw traditional Chinese culture. Shen Yun is completely different from anything my son saw in China. He praised the dynamic background, the clever story lines, the wonderful combination of Chinese and Western instruments and how appreciative the audience was. The persecution of Falun Dafa portrayed in the Shen Yun show re-awakened his compassion.
After he watched a Korean documentary about the CCP’s organ harvesting my son recently told me, “Mom, I now believe that the CCP has indeed taken organs from living practitioners.” During this coronavirus outbreak he saw how the CCP hid the truth resulting in a global pandemic. He's now able to clearly distinguish between good and evil.
When I recall how my son had ridiculed my cultivation and stopped me from telling his classmates about Falun Dafa, I deeply thank Master for saving him! My son didn’t know he was in a precarious situation - as dangerous as being on the edge of a cliff! Master unlocked his heart!
Thank you, Master!
