(Minghui.org) One day in April 2017 as I was getting home, I decided to step into a restaurant to have a meal alone. I had never done this before. There I met a man who gave me a “stick wake-up.”

Upon entering the restaurant, the man shouted for me to sit at his table. I sat opposite him and we started talking. Our conversation went like this:

Man: How old are you?Me: What do you think?Man: 70 years old?Me: I'm 82.Man: Wow! Really? You look very energetic and healthy!Me: How about you, young man?Man: I'm 45.Me: Oh, you are not older than my eldest son. By the way, have you joined the Chinese Communist Party (CCP)?Man: Yes.Me: Are you still paying membership fees?Man: It's automatically deducted from my salary.Me: Isn't that akin to stealing money?Man: Well, this is the way things are.

“There are no advantages in joining the CCP,” I said. “The CCP is corrupt to a terrible extent. I was a member but have since quit. Look at those corrupt officials who have been arrested. None of them are good. All of them are corrupt. No one is watching the bad guys. People who cultivate in Falun Gong follow Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance to be good, but are being persecuted by Jiang's regime and even have their organs harvested.”

This caught his attention. He put down his chopsticks and listened attentively.

I asked him if he has seen the Tiananmen Square self-immolation and told him how it was staged. “Young man, I see that you are a good person. It was predestined that we meet! I've practiced Falun Gong for 22 years. Before practicing, my health wasn't very good. My husband said that I had illnesses on every part of my body, except for my mouth. Look at me now. What do you think?” I said.

He ate slowly as he listened attentively, and I continued. “You should quit the CCP, too. When Heaven eliminates the CCP, you will be fine,” I persuaded him.

He agreed, and I asked if he knew of my Master.

He replied, “It's Master Li Hongzhi. I didn't know Falun Gong was this good! Why didn't you [and your fellow practitioners] step forward to tell everyone about this?”

I was stunned to hear this and tears flowed down my face.

I thanked him for giving me a “stick wake-up,” as this would spur me on. I told him that I hope that he, his family and friends would tell more people about Falun Dafa. I also gave him an amulet and software to break through China's censorship firewall.

His words still lingered in my head for a long time after I got home. I enlightened that this is because the sentient beings are urgently looking forward to being saved, and this “stick wake-up” was meant for cultivators who are missing out on opportunities.

Fellow practitioners, let us quickly save people and not lose any more time!
