Clarifying the Truth While on Vacation
(Clearwisdom.net) The first week in October was a holiday in China, so many practitioners used the time to go out and save sentient beings. In my area, many practitioners went to explain the facts about Falun Dafa to their relatives, friends, and classmates. So did my wife and I.
We had prepared different Dafa truth-clarification materials and hid them in various places. We put some CDs in an empty powdered milk foil bag, some in our luggage, and others in our pockets. We easily passed the routine inspections encountered while boarding the train. The train was very crowded, so my wife and I sent forth righteous thoughts to the entire compartment. Then I started to talk to the people around me about Falun Dafa.
We clarified the truth to different people by starting with small talk. With the Fa in our hearts, Teacher helped us to use our wisdom so that we were able to find a common topic to start a conversation. During the 24 hours (round-trip) spent on the train, we completely put our hearts into clarifying the truth. Without a break, we talked to people about Falun Gong. We just wanted to let the predestined people know the truth, and we weren't tired at all. Teacher arranged for many different passengers to sit near us and hear the truth. After understanding the truth, most of them withdrew from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its affiliated organizations before getting off the train.
After arriving at our destination, we went shopping using currency that we wrote truth-clarification messages on beforehand. When we met other travelers we talked to them about Falun Dafa. In the evening, we distributed flyers and asked several taxi drivers whether they had heard that quitting the CCP would bring them blessings.
On this vacation, we also encountered some dangers but were not arrested. For example, while talking to people on the train, I didn't realize that a police officer was sitting next to me. I believed that he had heard the truth, too. My wife told me later that a train monitor had sat next to me several times. It is really like Teacher said: "When disciples have ample righteous thoughts, Master has the power to turn back the tide." ("The Master-Disciple Bond" from Hong Yin II) When we don't have any unrighteous thoughts, the evil will not dare to come near us.
On the morning that we checked out of our motel, we left some Dafa materials in the room. However, we inadvertently also left our MP4 player because we were in a hurry. As luck would have it, we were unable to get home that day so we returned to the same motel in the evening and only then did we realize that our MP4 player had disappeared. We couldn't find the owner of the motel, so we started to worry because it contained many Dafa lectures and materials. As soon as we thought that the owner had gone to the authorities to report us, we realized that this was a human notion and we should eliminate it because we were there to save people. Therefore, no evil dared to touch our powerful weapon. We immediately sent forth righteous thoughts to eliminate the evil factors and any interference behind the owner. After adjusting our minds with righteous thoughts, we went out to distribute Dafa materials. We had originally planned to distribute Dafa materials outside the city, but when we heard that the local people hadn't seen much information about Falun Dafa we decided to stay in the area.
Although it was raining, our hearts were not deterred. We distributed the flyers in several streets and eventually weren't quite sure where we were. However, after I had given out the last CD, I discovered that we had arrived back at our motel. The owner still hadn't returned by 10:00 p.m. so we went to bed.
The next morning, we saw the owner and asked him if he had found our MP4 player. He indeed had it and pleasantly returned it to us. We were speechless and deeply understood that we were under Teacher's merciful protection.
The time we spent on vacation was exactly the time that I had attained Dafa a year earlier. Since then, under Teacher's protection, I have steadily walked on the path of Fa-rectification. Thank you, Teacher, for mercifully saving me!
