New Practitioner: My Amazing Experience While Passing Out Truth-Clarifying Newspapers in Hong Kong
(Minghui.org) I'd like to tell you about my experience of overcoming interference from a CCP (Chinese Communist Party) controlled organization while handing out truth-clarification newspapers in Hong Kong. It happened right after the Hong Kong movement of Occupy Central with Love and Peace (OCLP) in 2014.
I arrived at our mobile site and collected several bundles of newspapers. I went to a bridge near the entrance of a subway station to hand them out to passersby.
There were already a few dozen people all wearing red shirts gathered together to criticize the OCLP. They were from the Hong Kong Youth Care Association, which is controlled by the CCP and notorious for constantly harassing Falun Dafa practitioners in Hong Kong.
I had no fear. I put my cart in a corner and started passing out newspapers. A few people from the group immediately surrounded me and tried to block me from giving them to people. I remembered Master’s teaching,
“The gods set forth something in the early period of my Fa-rectification, namely, that whatever the wicked Party does, regardless of its aim, will end up assisting me and Dafa disciples.” (“Fa Teaching at the 2008 New York Conference”, Collected Fa Teachings, Vol. VIII)
The coordinator of the mobile site came over and told me that I could go somewhere else if I wanted to. I told him that I was not afraid of those people since I was doing the most righteous thing.
I started to send forth righteous thoughts while passing out the newspapers. Soon those red-shirted people left and another one arrived. He blocked my way and started to hand out his fliers which slander the OCLP. However, he couldn't stop people from reaching out to me for the truth-clarifying newspapers.
The red-shirted person soon left and some others from their group came. I kept sending forth righteous thoughts and they kept switching people, trying to block me.
A woman from the group came over and took a newspaper from me. She started to scold me while tearing it up. She threw it on the ground and walked back to her group.
I didn't argue with her. I picked the pieces up and kept handing out newspapers. The public still kept coming to me for the papers and I handed out many copies.
The red-shirted group whispered to each other for a while and then sent over a large strong-looking guy to block me. However, he couldn't prevent people from taking the newspapers. He soon left.
I started to recite Master’s Fa while passing out the newspapers,
“Swift like lightning, soaring to cosmic heightsMighty like a thunderbolt, reaching beyond heavensSweeping across the cosmos, no place untouchedEliminating altogether all that’s decayed and deviant”(“Righteous Thoughts”, Hong Ying IV)
After a while, I noticed that the red-shirted group had moved to the other end of the bridge. While I kept reciting Master’s Fa, I heard someone from the group using a megaphone to criticize the OCLP. But the sound on megaphone started breaking up.
Two middle-age men passed by and accepted the newspapers from me. They told me they came over to support me.
The group of people wearing red shirts stopped their activity. One of the men came over and said, “You're really diligent. I admire you.” I clarified the truth to him, and he told me that he had heard about the persecution when he was in Taiwan.
The woman who tore up the newspaper and a few others walked passed me with their heads down. It was just like Master said,
“When bad people in this world appear to be evil, and might act so ferocious, that’s because there are evil entities behind them propping them up. Eliminate those evil entities and that person wouldn’t be able to muster that ferocity anymore.” (“20th Anniversary Fa Teaching”, Collected Fa Teachings, Vol. XI)
As I watched her walk away, I felt pity for her, as she was used by the evil. I hoped she still had a chance to be saved.
I handed out two bags of newspapers in an hour, which was better than usual. On my way back home, I thought about what just happened and felt it was magical.
I had only been practicing Falun Dafa for six months, but with Master's help I could maintain a peaceful mind no matter how they tried to provoke me. There's no doubt that I was able to do this because of Master’s strengthening. Master also used this situation to show me two powerful weapons - having the Fa in mind and keeping a compassionate and peaceful mindset.
For many Dafa related projects I did after that, I did them alone. I had to deal with all kinds of people and situations by myself. With the powerful weapons bestowed to me by Master, I was able to eliminate much of the interference and walked steadily on the path of Fa-Rectification.
