Keep Cultivating While Helping People
(Minghui.org) I began cultivating Dafa on August 3, 1996. I am 66 years old this year. Cultivating Dafa has purified my body and improved my morality. I am now free of illness and strive to be considerate of others in all situations. Dafa guided every step of my cultivation.
Helping People During the Pandemic
When the Chinese New Year was approaching in 2020, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) suddenly informed the people that the Wuhan pneumonia (CCP virus) was spreading rapidly, and they ordered the lock down of cities, counties, villages, and residential areas across the country, and banned visits to relatives and friends.
People began to panic as if the end of the world was coming. People disappeared from streets, roads, and residential areas, and entire communities became lifeless.
I became anxious after reading on the Internet that the number of infections and deaths in Wuhan City and its urban areas was increasing every day. I begged Master for the wisdom to help predestined people there.
“Zhen Shan Ren—three sacred words have boundless Fa powersFalun Dafa is good—true thoughts alter all disasters”(“Couplet, The Source of All Fa,” Hong Yin IV)
Dafa has boundless power! Master’s Fa appeared in my mind and I immediately knew what to do.
Staying Safe During the Pandemic
The name of a classmate who moved to Wuhan years ago when she got married came to my mind, so I called her.
She was excited to receive my call and thanked me for remembering her in such a tough time. I asked why she didn’t leave Wuhan before the lockdown.
She told me that she chose to stay because she did not want to risk bringing the virus to her family members in other cities. When she asked how I was doing, I told her I had cultivated Falun Dafa for many years.
I explained to her the beauty of Dafa and how I benefited from cultivating. I also explained to her that the CCP was persecuting Falun Dafa.
I told her that the “Tiananmen Self-immolation” was a CCP frame-up to defame Dafa, and “Surrounding Zhongnanhai” was it’s deceptive propaganda. I told her not to believe any of the CCP’s slanderous propaganda.
I then explained to her that the CCP is the root of all the disasters, and advised her to quit it and its organizations to have a good future. I told her that sincerely reciting “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” has helped many people.
I also asked her to recite the phrases sincerely with her family. She accepted my words well and told me she would quit the CCP and its organizations.
She also told me she would recite the phrases. After the phone call, I held my hands in heshi and thanked Master for his compassionate salvation.
Helping People in Wuhan During the Pandemic
I thought about thousands of people in Wuhan, and about those Chinese people who were still poisoned by the CCP’s lies. I knew that by changing the last four digits of a known cell phone number, while keeping the first seven digits, I could obtain thousands of different cell phone numbers in Wuhan.
I started calling these new numbers, but people rarely answered my call and the phone numbers were soon blocked.
I then started sending messages to these numbers. I downloaded the articles, such as “A Possible Magic Cure for the Coronavirus Epidemic” from the Minghui website, and sent the articles in screenshots to those phone numbers.
Many times I had to send one article in several screenshots due to the length. Later, the Minghui website started publishing the articles in cell phone screenshot format, which made things much easier.
I could send more than a dozen messages, sometimes up to three dozen messages per day. I received many replies.
Some people responded with “Okay, thank you!” Most of them did not reply.
There were also people who responded with abusive words. However, I stayed unmoved, and kept sending the messages to help people.
A Negative Response Reminded Me to Look Within
Once, within five minutes after sending a message, the other side replied with “Go away!” I thought that the person was poisoned deeply and was in a dangerous situation, and I should try to help him.
I sent him three more messages, hoping he would read them. However, he responded three times, “Go away!”
His response shocked me. I started looking at whether I had done something not in line with the Fa.
I looked at the messages I sent. The messages were all from the Minghui website, with the content of how to save oneself in the pandemic.
I was deeply moved by the messages organized by the practitioners. These concise messages convey powerful information and include phone numbers, websites, and QR code, providing effective ways for the Chinese people to break through the information blockade.
These messages included “Infected with Wuhan Coronavirus, My Classmate Recovered by Reciting ‘Falun Dafa is Good’,” “My Niece’s Wuhan Virus Symptoms Disappeared,” “A Possible Magic Cure for the Coronavirus Epidemic,” and so on.
All of the messages convey valuable information. I came to understand that my thoughts must be the reason.
I Found Zealotry
I looked inside for the reason. I found that I had the mentality of doing things and showing off, and especially zealotry.
I had sent cell phone messages recently without much interference, and received many encouraging replies. I became zealous, and even made a calculation that on average I sent about 20 messages each day. I considered that some people who received my messages might forward those messages to their friends and family.
If one person forwarded to ten more people, the messages I sent out would reach hundreds of people. And if they kept forwarding the messages, many people could be helped.
I also thought that many other practitioners, domestically and internationally, were also helping people by making phone calls, sending messages, and posting and handing out materials to tell people about Falun Dafa.
With such an extensive effort to help people, Dafa practitioners could help the people in the hardest-hit Wuhan areas. The more I thought this way the more excited I became and the more my zealotry increased.
The evil then manipulated the people poisoned by the CCP to interfere with my effort to help people. The more I thought about my zealotry the more scared I became.
Discarding Zealotry and Cultivating More Diligently
I begged Master to forgive me for my mistakes and my lack of diligence. I intensified my Fa study and exercise practice, to cultivate myself and strengthen my righteous thoughts.
I asked Master to strengthen my righteous thoughts each day before I sent messages.
I sent righteous thoughts for half an hour to eliminate the evil in the field of the worst-hit areas in Wuhan, so that the predestined people there could receive the messages and compassionate salvation from Dafa.
After I made the effort to correct myself and discard zealotry, I received no more negative responses. From then on, I kept reminding myself, “Don't be zealous, and don’t show off.
I also remind myself to discard all ordinary notions, do the three things well, and following Master’s teachings.
At the critical moment of the pandemic, I must give all my effort to help as many people as possible as fast as possible!”
Thank you Master！
