Relatives Also Need to Hear about Dafa
(Minghui.org) I am a relatively new Falun Dafa practitioner, since I began to practice it in 2010.
I was in poor health before I practiced Dafa. I suffered from many illnesses, including heart, kidney and gallbladder disease, and inflammation of the stomach lining. The medication and treatments were costly, but none of them improved my health.
After an elderly practitioner handed me the book Zhuan Falun, I read it twice within three days. This book told me the meaning of life, and that the purpose of life is for people to return to their true selves. Therefore, I decided to practice Dafa.
After I had read Zhuan Falun a second time, I learned the exercises, and after 10 days I felt great. The symptoms of my illnesses no longer bothered me.
Close Relatives Should Hear the Truth about Dafa
Three of my relatives (my sister-in-law, brother-in-law, and niece) had not heard the goodness of Dafa, so I decided to talk to them. I asked Teacher Li Hongzhi to give me the wisdom needed—so that they could accept what I had to say.
When I called my sister-in-law, she told me that she usually does not take her cell phone with her, but that she did so on that day. She was going to her daughter’s home and I decided to tag along. After we arrived there, I thought that it would be great if my brother-in-law and my niece were there too, so I could clarify the facts about Dafa to all of them. To my surprise, my brother-in-law showed up, as did my niece.
It was meant to be that the three people I wanted to talk to were there at the same time. We rarely get together and I understood that Teacher provided me with this opportunity to talk to them about Dafa.
I addressed the topic in general terms. I said that everyday people's moral standards are in a rapid decline, and I also mentioned the corruption of officials. I told them that they could promote their fortunate lives by reciting two sentences: “Falun Dafa is good; Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” I added that they should quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its related organizations.
They listened, agreed that Dafa is good, and withdrew from the CCP.
Changed Mind of People Deceived by the CCP
I talked to a new practitioner’s sister about Dafa. Her sister was a CCP member and was in a wheelchair. After she listened to me, she withdrew from the CCP, and I also told her to recite “Falun Dafa is good; Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” A few days later, I sent her Dafa books. After she told me that her son did not want her to believe in Falun Dafa, I decided to talk to her son and daughter-in-law about this cultivation practice.
At first, this new practitioner did not want me to talk to them because she did not think that they would believe me.
“Compassion can harmonize Heaven and Earth, ushering in springRighteous thoughts can save the people in this world.”(“The Fa Rectifies the Cosmos” from Hong Yin Vol. II)
But I insisted and we went to see them. They ran a restaurant, which was very busy, but I waited patiently and asked that Teacher give me the wisdom needed to change their minds.
When they had some time, their mother introduced me. I told them the facts about Falun Dafa and how I benefited from practicing. I also said that people would be safer if they recited “Falun Dafa is good” and withdraw from the CCP.
“I do not want any money or goods from you. I only want you to be safe,” I said. “More than a hundred million people have quit the CCP, including senior military and political leaders. They are aware of the facts, and chose wisely.”
The son said, “I do not believe in the CCP either. It is not good. I am also against it.” Then, they quit the CCP.
Excellent Opportunities During Chinese New Year
During the Chinese New Year 2014, I visited my second eldest sister, especially since I knew that she would host many people, including six youngsters.
Her visitors believe in Buddhism, and it was difficult for them to understand Falun Dafa. The adults were concerned about the persecution and asked me to not talk about Dafa any further.
I was not discouraged. I knew that all I needed to do was to believe in Teacher and the Fa. While watching television with an in-law and her college-age son, I talked about the natural disasters in China and explained why they should quit the CCP. No further explanation was needed because they agreed to quit the CCP, and so did three more adults after dinner.
I then wanted to talk to the children without the adults around. As soon as I held that thought, the children went to another room to play. I asked Teacher to help me. I started with the high school teenager and explained the benefits of withdrawing from the CCP.
I told the others to recite “Falun Dafa is good; Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” often, and that Buddha would bless them. The teenager quit the CCP, and the elementary students followed. In all, 11 people quit the CCP on that day.
