Despite the Pressure, Don’t Stop Saving People
(Minghui.org) In 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic locked down cities and communities across the country, and local authorities enforced stay-at-home orders. It was the same for my community. At first, entrance cards were issued, and one person per family could go out every two days. Other practitioners and I used this opportunity to clarify the truth and save people.
Everyone, including my family, was fearful. They were reluctant to let me out, afraid that I would be infected. I told them the truth, that Dafa disciples have energy that repels the virus. Not only that, we have Master Li’s protection. So I would neither be infected nor carry the virus. My family then stopped worrying about me.
I was thinking about all the Chinese people in the world who don’t know that Dafa is good and that if they don’t quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), they will be eliminated. I have to tell people the secret to avoiding the virus: by reciting “Falun Dafa is good” and “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” and quitting the CCP. When I ran out of printed amulets, I wrote out cards by hand.
After Master’s article “Rationality” came out, I learned that I was doing the right thing, so I accelerated the pace of saving people. When I saw almost no vehicles and very few people on the street, I remembered Master’s poem:
“Darkness blankets the sky,And those once near are gone.”(“Cosmic Rogues, Your Days Are Numbered,” Hong Yin V)
My heart sank and compassion arose. At that time, we talked to everyone that we met. We felt like we would miss them and begged Master to save them! So when we saw someone at a distance, we would run up to them to clarify the truth so they could avoid being eliminated.
We didn’t have a fixed destination, we walked through the streets and alleys. Another practitioner and I once walked out the back of a community with a narrow exit. I thought that, as a disciple, I could fit in all scenarios, so I got out without a problem.
At that time, the effect of clarifying the truth and saving people was not bad. Almost all the people we talked to quit the CCP.
However, it didn’t take long for the entrance card to be abandoned, to be replaced with scanning a QR code on a mobile phone. We didn’t install WeChat on our mobile phone and we didn’t want to use a QR code as it could be used to track Dafa disciples.
I didn’t scan the code when I went out, but the local staff greeted me cheerfully. The security guard was afraid of what his superior would say, so he asked us to print the code on paper. The practitioner who went with me had very strong righteous thoughts and talked to the community manager, who called the security guard right away to waive the code for us. I thanked Master in my heart. As a result, I never scanned the QR code when I exited or entered my community. However, one still needed to scan the code and have their temperature taken to get in and out of other communities and supermarkets. But I thought that I don’t need to scan the code. Master said:
“Everything in your dimensional field is controlled by the thoughts in your brain.” (Lecture Six, Zhuan Falun).
I just believed what Master said. So under Master’s protection, I entered the supermarket to save people and shop without scanning the code. (I did fail twice because of a lack of righteous thoughts).
Although the CCP virus has spread around the world, the Chinese regime has not stopped the persecution of Falun Gong. There was news on the internet that Dafa disciples in different provinces who tried to save people and clarify the truth were arrested and their homes were ransacked. It was the same in my region. I can’t say that I was fearless, but I just realized that I had to face the fear since I have to get rid of human attachments in this practice. I remembered that Master said:
“Dafa disciples are Gods’ messengers”(“I Sing For You,” Hong Yin IV, Team Blue Translation)
“Gods walk the earth,validating the Fa”(“What’s to Fear?” Hong Yin II, Translation Version A)
If I view myself as a god, who is afraid of whom? I remember one evening, I went to the supermarket to buy eggs and accidentally broke two of them. An employee came over right away to clean up. I apologized and was willing to help, but she said it was alright. I told her that I would buy those two eggs. After I checked out, I put two eggs back in the bucket. She said, “You are very kind. This morning someone accidentally broke almost a dozen eggs and didn't do anything about it. We didn’t expect you to, either.” The manager also said that I didn’t need to.
I told them, “It’s not easy for you. I am a Falun Gong practitioner who practices Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance. I have to consider others and not take advantage of them. If I break something, I need to pay for it.”
I took this opportunity to clarify the truth about Falun Gong. At the time, there were cashiers, salespersons, the manager, and several customers in the supermarket. When they heard that I was a Falun Gong practitioner, they looked at me in amazement. Some said, “Ah, Falun Gong is so good.” I helped the salesperson quit the CCP when I bought a cake. I helped the cashier to quit the CCP when I paid. I helped the manager quit the CCP when I put the purchased eggs back in the bucket. I helped the employee to quit the CCP after I put the eggs back. Two broken eggs helped me to save several people. Master said:
“You have gone through great trials and hardships to arrive at where you are today. By all means, you shouldn’t let your heart and mind bob about like duckweed, stirred at the first hint of wind.” (“On the Novel The Cosmic Disaster,” The Essentials of Diligent Progress Vol. III)
I used Master’s Fa as guidance and overcame my fear. In some provinces recently, big rewards have been offered for reporting a Falun Gong practitioner who clarifies the truth. I saw the evil’s desperate struggle reflected in this crazy declaration. On the other hand, I think that we as Dafa disciples should enhance our efforts to clarify the truth. If an ordinary person understands the truth of Dafa and understands the heavenly principles that good is rewarded and evil is punished, would one still exchange his or her life for money?
Recalling the past few months, whether it’s community closures, the QR code, or other evil tactics, if it was scorching hot or freezing cold, nothing has stopped my fellow practitioners and me from cooperating to save people. We have bucked the pressure to clarify the truth and rescue people. Thank you, Master, for taking care of us all the way, going and returning safely. However, by looking inward, I found that the number of people saved is not good enough–only a little short of one thousand since the pandemic started. I still have many regrets, such as my kindness and compassion for clarifying the truth have not been fully cultivated and, to a certain degree, there is still fear and inertia.
In the future when we clarify the truth and save people, we must get rid of any human attachments and cultivate to the state of gods that Dafa disciples should have. In the process of practicing without regrets, we will fulfill our vows, complete our mission, and return home with Master!
Thank you, Master! Thank you, fellow practitioners! Heshi!
