Treating Sentient Beings Like Family, Telling Them About Dafa
(Minghui.org) I used to work in a government enterprise. I started to practice Falun Dafa in 1997 and have been diligent in telling people the facts about the practice and the persecution.
My daughter had a bad case of psoriasis. It went away about a year after I learned Dafa. Sometimes both of my daughters studied the Fa with me. My wife began to cultivate in 2008 but gave up a year later. She was focused on dancing at that time. I didn’t blame her, instead, I felt sorry for her.
I prayed to Master for help many times to get her to return to cultivation. Later, she had a problem with lymph nodes in her urinary tract. She underwent surgery and began to cultivate after the operation. That was four and a half years ago. Her health has totally recovered. We go to the Fa-study site and tell people about Falun Dafa every day. We are grateful that Master brought her back.
Telling People Facts Over the Phone
I have been phoning people to talk about Falun Dafa for over 10 years. My calls have been fairly effective. Here are some examples.
One time I called a long-distance number and a lady answered the phone. “How are you, ma'am. We are talking today because we have a predestined relationship. Have you heard of Falun Dafa?” She didn't answer. I talked for about five minutes, but she remained quiet. Then I talked about quitting the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its affiliated organizations. She asked me why one needed to quit the CCP. I told her that quitting the CCP can make one safe.
“You sound very nice. You must be a kind person,” she said.
“We practitioners are all kind people. All we want is to save you. Why don't you quit the CCP and its affiliates,” I said.
“Why not? I was in the Young Pioneer's,” she said. I also talked with her husband, who had been bedridden for years, and he agreed to quit the CCP.
I asked her if there were other members of her family. She said she had a son and a daughter. I said, “If you trust me, will you give me their phone numbers? I want to help them to quit the CCP.” She gave me their numbers.
I called her daughter and said that I was a friend of her mother’s. I told her true information about Falun Dafa. By the end of the call, she agreed to quit the Youth League.
I then called her son. He was a manager of a government enterprise and a CCP member. I talked with him about the goodness of Falun Dafa, told him the truth about the Tiananmen Square self-immolation event, and about the inscription found on the rock in Guizhou. I explained why one needed to quit the CCP. He gladly quit his membership and thanked me.
One time I called a prison guard. I had read on Minghui.org that he had persecuted Falun Dafa practitioners who were in detention. He yelled at me as soon as I told him I was a practitioner and didn't give me a chance to say anything more. Then he hung up.
When I called a second time, he yelled at me again, badmouthed Master and Dafa, and then hung up. I felt sorry for him. I sent righteous thoughts for a while, then called him again.
This time he didn't say anything. So I said, “Thank you for listening to me. Nobody is born a villain. We all want to be a good person. I think you do too. The problem is that you have chosen the wrong profession. Helping Jiang Zemin persecute Falun Gong made you hurt good people. Of course you need to make a living and support your family, but I urge you not to be so devoted to Jiang's gang. Don’t give up your good nature just for a bit of immediate personal interest. You may destroy your life.”
I continued, “Although you have done bad things, you may still have a bright future if you truly regret what you did, stop persecuting practitioners and quit the CCP and its affiliates.”
He agreed to quit the CCP. I told him he should do his best to protect practitioners in the future.
Telling People about Dafa Face to Face
Now that I am retired, I go out to tell people about Dafa every morning. I study the Fa or prepare some informational materials in the afternoon, and do group Fa-study in the evening. My life is fulfilled and I have the same feeling as when I first started cultivation.
Once, five or six people surrounded me as I talked about Falun Dafa. Some of them quit the CCP. Some asked for information flyers. Two people, who hadn't spoken at all, stayed with me until I left. One was in his 40s, the other in his 20s.
I asked them if they wanted to quit the CCP. The older man told me his story. He said his celestial eye opened when he was young. One day, he saw that an elderly neighbor would die in three days. He told the neighbor’s grandson, who beat him up and complained to his father. His father also beat him up. The elderly neighbor indeed died three days later. The villagers said that the man died because he had cursed him so they also beat him up.
He said, “Such things occurred many times. Every time I said something, I would end up being beaten. The villagers said I jinxed them. Now I don't see anything. Can you tell me what happened? Did the old man die because I put a curse on him?” He told me that no one had been able to answer this question, and people thought he was a lunatic.
I told him what Master said in Zhuan Falun about “The issue of the celestial eye” and “The supernormal abilities of precognition and retrocognition.” I told him that he had foreseen what was going to happen, and that telling people had not caused the bad things to happen.
He praised Master. I told him not to tell people about events when he saw them before they happened because they would not understand that he had an ability. He quit the CCP and happily left.
The younger man said, “I am a college student. I believe in Buddha and I like to visit temples. But the more I looked at the Buddha and Bodhisattva statues in temples in many famous mountains, the more scared I felt. Aren't they supposed to be compassionate? Why did they make me feel so uncomfortable?”
I briefly told him about some relevant teachings from Zhuan Falun. Since he was from out of town, I suggested he ask a practitioner in his area to get him a copy of Zhuan Falun when he returned home. He thanked me sincerely for resolving a problem that had bothered him for a long time. He told me that he was a CCP member, and asked me to help him quit the CCP. I also told him how to bypass the Internet firewall.
