China Fahui | Clarifying the Truth in Every Village of Our County
(Minghui.org) Greetings, Master. Greetings, fellow practitioners.
Fellow practitioners and I enlightened in 2015 that we should visit the countryside and clarify the truth to people in the remote areas who have predestined relationships with Dafa. In the last year and a half, we have visited every village in our county. We have encountered harassment, threats, and other risks, but more often than not we were met with praise, respect, and appreciation from the people who learned the truth.
Visiting Households to Clarify the Truth
We knocked on every door in the villages we visited. At first, I didn't have enough righteous thoughts, and I didn't know what to say when there were many people present. Consequently, some people turned me away. They often not only disagreed with me but also said bad things about us.
Another practitioner said to me, “You should change your notions. You seem to think that, if one person rejects you, the others will, too. You should think instead that when there are many people, you will be able to save more people, and if one person agrees with you, the others will, too.”
The practitioner was right. Why didn't I think that way? This was an example of truly righteous thoughts. I corrected my thoughts from that point on and was no longer fearful when talking to groups of people.
We visited one house where four people were playing cards. I said, “Excuse me, can you give me a few minutes? I would like to tell you something very significant.” They stopped playing, and I told them about the evil history of the communist party and about the trend to quit it.
I told them that they should quit the Party to ensure a bright future for themselves, so when heaven punishes the Party, they will not be implicated. They all agreed to quit. We then gave them a variety of Falun Dafa materials, including calendars and amulets.
We said as we left, “Please remember that Falun Dafa is good and Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” They thanked us.
We visited a house with seven people on another day. We told them that we came from another town and wanted to tell them something that would bring them happiness. We then told them why they should quit the Party. They all agreed and thanked us.
Not Missing a Single Person
When we went to a village, a fellow practitioner told us that they had visited that village before, but very few villagers would listen to them. So we sent forth righteous thoughts first. We convinced one family to quit the Party and then moved on to another.
A fellow came by on a bicycle. We greeted him and told him about the trend to quit the Party. He agreed. We then gave him some Dafa materials. Before he left, two more came by, so we talked to them, too. They both wanted to know more and asked for some materials.
After that, a dozen people stopped by. We talked to them one by one, and they all quit the Party. As we were leaving, we heard a guy shout from far away, “The communist party doesn't care about us--it's doomed. Falun Dafa is great!”
We sometimes saw people napping, and I passed them by. But one practitioner said, “We shouldn't skip them. They need to be saved, too. If we kindly tell them our purpose, they will understand. We could say, 'Sorry to bother you, but I would like to tell you something very important. I don't want you to be left behind.' When I did this in the past, they listened to me and quit.”
I saw the gap between myself and fellow practitioners in cultivation and have since changed my ways. I realized that, if I truly want to save people, most of them will listen to me and even thank me. True compassion is very powerful and will help us to save a lot of people.
Nothing Can Stop Us From Saving People
During a snowstorm last winter the roads were slippery, so we did not go the countryside.
A fellow practitioner casually said, “Nothing can stop us.” This woke me up. He was right. Would we stop going to work because the roads were slippery? Why should we stop going to save people then?
So I called other practitioners. They agreed that the snow was simply interference from the old evil forces and we should not be deceived by this illusion. We should just do what we need to do. That day we went to a village and convinced more than 100 people to quit the Party. The next day, the sun came out, and the snow melted.
Another day, it started to snow as soon as we got to a small village. We just visited the houses one by one. It snowed harder and harder, but we visited every house in that village.
A practitioner then mentioned that there were two other small villages nearby that we should visit. So, despite the heavy snowfall, we clarified the truth to every house in those two villages. When we finished, we were soaked, but none of us felt cold.
Happy for Him
We visited a family one day and were greeted by a 60-year-old man. When we gave him a calendar, he thanked us and said, “You guys are great, not like the people who talk about Falun Gong to everybody.”
We realized that he had misunderstandings about Dafa.
Another practitioner said, “To be honest, we practice Falun Gong.” He was surprised, “Really? You guys look like good people. Why do you practice that?” We told him what Falun Gong really is and how the Communist Party has used lies to slander Falun Gong. We told him about the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance and then asked, “Aren't people who follow these principles good people?”
He agreed, “Wow. That's the truth. I wouldn't have known this if it wasn't for you.”
We then told him about quitting the Party, and he quit.
When we tried to leave, he said, “Please stay for dinner. It's snowing. You've worked so hard for us.” We declined, but as we left, we thanked him, “It's worth it, as long as you folks know the truth.” He thanked us again and again.
We were so happy to see him learn the facts that we forgot we were in heavy snow.
Undaunted by Difficulty
The first person we met in one village refused to quit the Party. She said one of her relatives practiced Falun Gong and had asked her to quit many times. She said, “Just go away. No one in this village will listen to you. Some might even report you to the police. A few Falun Gong practitioners were arrested here a few days ago. I am telling you for your own good, just leave.”
Our hearts were not moved. As we visited the other homes, more than 90% of the people in the village quit the Party. On our way back, we were happy that we hadn't let her scare us off, or those people would not have been saved.
Another day, we ran into a man who yelled at us, “Do you know what I do? How dare you tell me this?” We said, “It doesn't matter what you do. We're trying to save your life. Everyone knows that the Party is about to crash. We are doing are a good deed.” He calmed down and said, “OK, but you should avoid my neighbor. He is not as easygoing as I am. If you go into his house, you won't be able to leave. He is a government official.”
We still tried to convince him to quit the Party, but he refused. So we left.
We weren't moved by his words, however, and went to his neighbor's house. We told the man what Falun Gong really is and about the trend to quit the Party. He said he was a Party member, but he carefully listened to us and agreed with us.
After he quit the Party, we gave him a calendar and more materials. He accepted all of them.
On another day, we ran into a man who cursed at us. We sent forth righteous thoughts and asked Master to help us. We said to him, “It is not good for you to curse at us like that. Aren't we good people for bringing you a calendar in such cold weather?”
He interrupted and yelled, “I am a Party member. Don't try to brainwash me.” I said, “I respect your choice. All I want to do is tell you that heaven will eliminate the Party.”
We told him about the state-sanctioned organ harvesting in China. He agreed that the former party head, Jiang Zemin, was evil but insisted that the Party and the other leaders were good. We then discussed the lamentable history of the Party.
I said, “The Party has killed so many people. Won't heaven punish it for this? You are a member. Won't you be involved? You are a good person. Why would you stay connected with this evil Party? Only by quitting can you protect yourself from future disaster.”
Almost in tears, the other practitioner said, “Only good people will have a bright future. Why would you stay associated with the Party?”
The guy was moved by our sincerity and agreed to quit. As we left, he kept saying, “Thank you.”
We were very happy that he changed his attitude thanks to the power of compassion. Master said,
“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)
After Learning the Truth, the Police Let Us Go
We went to a village before the last Chinese New Year, and right before we were finished, a police car stopped in front of us. An officer said, “Somebody reported you. Come with me.”
We tried to clarify the truth to the officers in the car. They didn't allow us to talk at first. Another practitioner said, “We are good people and do not commit crimes. The New Year is coming. You should do some good deeds for your own good.”
We then started to tell them all the lies the Party used to attack Falun Gong. We also told them that many people who were actively involved in persecuting Falun Gong, including many high-ranking Party officials, have already encountered retribution and been arrested.
We kept talking, and they listened quietly.
They drove to a quiet area and let us go. We thanked them and said, “You will be blessed.”
We went out to clarify the truth again the next day.
From summer to winter, and from winter to summer, we have visited many homes. At the beginning, people were afraid. But now when they hear the words Falun Dafa, they say, “Falun Dafa is good.”
During this process, we also cultivate ourselves and have improved our xinxing. We have developed more righteous thoughts and become more compassionate and mature.
Actually, Master does everything. All we have done is continue to rectify ourselves based on the Fa. As long as we trust Master, he is next to us. If we remember at every moment that we are Dafa disciples, we will be able to overcome all difficulties with Master's help.
In this final period of Fa-rectification, let us do well and be worthy of Master's salvation.
