The Power of Dafa: Helping People to Understand the Truth
(Minghui.org) I had a heart attack in the fall of 2004 and was hospitalized. My mother was very worried when she found out and called my sister, who is a Falun Dafa practitioner. My sister came to the hospital later that day and brought me the book Zhuan Falun.
My sister had asked me to read the book before, but I always turned her down, saying I was too busy. But now I was in the hospital and had nothing to do, so my sister asked me again to read Zhuan Falun.
I started reading as soon as she left. I really loved reading it and completely forgot that I was in the hospital. The more I read, the better I felt.
“Once you upgrade your xinxing, your body will undergo a great change. Upon xinxing improvement, the matter in your body is guaranteed to transform. What kind of changes will take place? You will give up those bad things that you are attached to. For example, if a bottle filled with dirty things is sealed tightly and thrown into water, it will sink all the way to the bottom. You pour out some of its dirty contents. The more you empty the bottle, the higher it will float in the water. If it is emptied entirely, it will float on the surface completely. In the course of our cultivation practice, you must clean out various bad things in your body so that you can move up. This characteristic of the universe exactly plays this role.” (Lecture One, Zhuan Falun)
I understood the seriousness of cultivation after reading this and made up my mind to be a cultivator. Master started cleansing my body, and I was discharged from the hospital three days later.
The doctor came to my home to give me an injection, but the needle wouldn't penetrate my skin. I wondered what was going on, but then remembered Master said:
“"Teacher, why do I feel uncomfortable all over my body? I always go to the hospital to get injections, but it doesn’t help. Taking medicine also doesn’t help." They were not even embarrassed to say that to me! Of course, they would not help. Those are not illnesses. How could they help? You may go ahead and have a physical exam. There is not anything wrong, but you just feel uncomfortable. We have a practitioner who broke a few needles at a hospital. In the end, the liquid medicine squirted out, and the needle still would not penetrate. He came to understand: "Oh, I’m a practitioner, and I shouldn’t have injections." He just realized that he should not have an injection.” (Lecture Six, Zhuan Falun)
I realized that I was a cultivator, not an ordinary person. As a practitioner, Master takes care of me. I really wasn’t ill at all. I had done so many bad things in my life, so I had to suffer a little bit of pain to eliminate my karma. That was what I had to bear.
I told the doctor that I didn’t need the injection and asked him to take back all the medications I’d been prescribed. Since then I haven’t had any injections or felt the need to take any medication.
When my mother-in-law saw me send the doctor away, she was worried, so I told her, “I'm a Dafa practitioner. Master Li is taking care of me and cleansing my body. You don’t need to worry about me. Please relax—I’m fine.”
Clarifying the Truth about Falun Dafa
Safety Is Most Important
I met a man on the bus whose face was wrapped in gauze and asked what had happened. He told me that he’s been hit by a car when he was riding a motorcycle and that he had been having bad luck recently. I told him that safety is the most important in life and that people were quitting the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) to ensure a safe future. He had not heard about this, so I told him about the CCP’s crimes of persecuting Falun Dafa practitioners, live organ harvesting, and the self-immolation incident on Tiananmen Square.
As we talked, I told him that gods and Buddhas are merciful and want to save all sentient beings, but that those who joined the CCP organizations and haven’t quit would be held accountable for their crimes.
I asked him to quit as soon as possible to be safe. He did and accepted a Falun Dafa keepsake.
Learning to Believe
I met a young man sitting in the square and asked if he had heard about how quitting the CCP can ensure a safe future.
He told me that he had heard about it a lot but didn’t believe it. I responded by telling him that I just hoped he would be safe, but I wouldn't force him to believe anything, since belief is a personal choice.
I told him about Falun Dafa and the persecution. He cried when I said, “I really want you to have a bright future. You're so young and promising. I hope you will not be a scapegoat for the CCP.”
He quit the Party.
Loving Our Country Isn’t the Same as Loving the CCP
When I was walking along the riverbank, I met a man in his 60’s. He told me that he was retired from the army. I asked him if he loved National Day (celebrated annually on October 1 to commemorate the founding of the People's Republic of China). He smiled and asked me “Of course. Don’t you love our country?”
I said, “I love our country, but I don’t love the CCP. Love for the country doesn’t equate to love for the CCP.”
He was a Party member, so I told him about how the CCP persecutes Falun Dafa practitioners and how the self-immolation on Tiananmen Square was staged to deceive the people and turn them against Falun Dafa practitioners.
I said, “You seem to be a good person. I really don’t want you to be their scapegoat. If there is a major elimination of human beings, I hope you can stay. Please quit the CCP.”
When the CCP virus (coronavirus) epidemic was at its peak, people dared not come out for fear of contracting it. The epidemic seems to be spreading throughout the world, but from a cultivator's perspective, gods are using it to eliminate certain people.
If there is no CCP virus, there will be other plagues. They strike when people’s morals and values bottom out and people do not believe in the existence of gods and Buddhas and continue to blaspheme them.
When I spoke to people about the epidemic, I always told them about Liu Bowen, a renowned sage from the Ming Dynasty, and his predictions of plagues. He told how they miraculously disappeared after people repented for their past wrongdoings.
I related his predictions to today's CCP virus. Falun Dafa practitioners are being persecuted for believing in Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance and the CCP sanctions the harvesting of organs from living practitioners.
Only by withdrawing from the CCP and its affiliated organizations can someone be truly protected by the gods and Buddhas. That person would not be affected by this epidemic.
When I went out to talk to people, I usually greeted them with this opening: “How long have you stayed at home?”
The answer was usually, “Several days.” So I took this as the starting point to clarify the truth: “The current epidemic is related to everyone’s life choices. In historical times, Jesus came to save people and was crucified. This resulted in three plagues. Only those who believed in God were spared.
“This epidemic is the same. It's one of the disasters caused by the CCP's persecution of Falun Dafa. This is a repeating tragedy. If you don’t quit the CCP, you will be its scapegoat. It’s not worth it. Only those who agree with the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance can stay.”
Many people agreed to quit the Party.
I also told them to remember to sincerely recite “Falun Dafa is good; Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.”
