I Go Out to Save People Every Day
(Minghui.org) Since the advent of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) virus (coronavirus) in 2020, China has continued to maintain extreme measures throughout the whole country. Most cities and local communities have been locked down. My city and residential areas were also locked down, and people were not allowed to leave home at will. Security guards wearing red armbands were everywhere. There have been few people on the streets. This has made it hard for Falun Dafa practitioners to clarify the truth to people in face to face encounters. Because I could not contact fellow practitioners, I did not have any truth clarification materials available. I did not know what to do at first.
One day in mid-February, fellow practitioners brought me some issues of Minghui Weekly. After reading about the experiences of other practitioners in Minghui Weekly, I realized that I must continue to save sentient beings with righteous thoughts. Therefore, no matter the weather, I go out and clarify the truth every day.
“Then as Dafa disciples there is really no reason for you not to fulfill your missions.” (“Fa Teaching Given at the 2016 New York Fa Conference”)
Sometimes I had to babysit my granddaughter because the kindergarten was closed. I then adjusted my schedule accordingly and still went out to talk with people every day. It was easier to change my schedule if I needed to babysit her for half the day. If I needed to take care of her for the whole day, I went out at six o’clock in the morning.
“You are not here to change history, but rather, to save people at this most dangerous time in history, by raising awareness, persuading people to withdraw from China’s three major communist organizations, encouraging people to sincerely say the magic words,2 and so on.” (“Stay Rational”)
When I met someone on the street, I first quickly observed their dress and behavior to find common topics so that I could clarify the truth in a way that appealed to them. For example, I would talk about health with seniors, careers with young people, school work with students, and babies with young parents. This created a good atmosphere for clarifying the truth. Most people reacted in a friendly manner when I started with topics that they were interested in.
At present, the pandemic has been a hot topic that everyone is concerned about. People all hope it can end soon. I usually said, “We all know the whole country has been locking down to prevent the next wave of the pandemic. However, no matter how restrictive the lockdown was, the pandemic still came back in several cities. People can never control the pandemic. What can people do in the third wave? We must quit the CCP if we want to stay safe.”
Next, I clarified the fundamental truth about Falun Dafa. Many people agreed with what I said and quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations. I also told them about the nine important words, ‘Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.’ I told them about the miraculous experiences of some people in Wuhan, as well as foreigners, when they repeated these words. Their health improved after sincerely reciting these nine special words when infected with the CCP virus. Most people listened with respect.
I also asked them to tell their relatives and friends to sincerely recite the nine words. Many people agreed to do this.
One night in mid-June, I had a dream. In the dream, a little boy stood in front of me and said, “I want a protective amulet.” I realized that this was a hint from Master Li Hongzhi, the founder of Falun Dafa. I prepared some amulets as keepsakes for people I clarified the truth to. Many people happily accepted it.
Some people did not believe in the truth of Dafa at first. I did not give up on them. I wanted to compassionately wake them up. I usually said, “One would rather believe its existence than not believe it at all, (an old Chinese saying), and this is the Way that a wise person should follow. If another wave of the virus does not happen, what will you have lost? Nothing. However, if there is a next wave, you can stay safe.” Most people would quit the CCP after considering this.
Some people did not believe the truth and refused to quit the CCP no matter what I said. I still wanted to leave them with compassion, in hopes that they might quit the CCP in the future. I usually said, “No matter what you think now. Please remember what I told you today. I hope you can stay safe in the future.”
Master saw my heart to save people, so he arranged for predestined people to meet me every day. Sometimes more than twenty people a day would quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations.
I have witnessed Master Li’s incomparable greatness and infinite compassion, time and time again. Master has given so much to sentient beings and Falun Dafa practitioners. It is Master and Dafa who truly can save people.
My efforts and experiences while clarifying the truth to people also helped me to eliminate my attachments along the way. I feel honored to be a Falun Dafa cultivator. In the remaining time for Fa-rectification cultivation, I will cultivate diligently, look inward, and do the three things well.
