Finding Dafa Is Gaining a Fortune!
(Minghui.org) Mr.Yang used to be a chief of police and later became the manager of a construction company. We knew each other for many years. I work for a real estate company. Our two companies went to court due to a contract dispute.
Mr. Yang called me in June 2020 to meet for a chat. I had previously told him about Falun Dafa and helped him withdraw from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). I thought that he wanted to talk about the contract dispute case. He seemed eager, so we decided to meet at a restaurant on July 6.
After we exchanged greetings, he started to talk about the tough time he had been experiencing the past few years. He even showed me a scar he had from a recent surgery.
Our conversation commenced:
Yang: “Our companies have been in lawsuits for several years. During this time, I went through a surgery which left me with six scars. The doctor advised me to eat light, only until I am 60% full.”
Me: “Life is suffering. Seems like no one can go for more than three days without worry.”
Yang: “Look at me, I have aged, but you have not. In fact, I think you look younger than before. Whenever I see you, I feel your positive energy. We have known each other for nearly 10 years and you always look the same. And I always enjoy talking to you.”
Me: “I have benefited from practicing Falun Dafa; it is amazing and that is why people continue to practice regardless of the persecution. They are not fooled by the CCP. If Dafa is not good, why do so many people from all walks of life in China and around the world want to practice? We are about the same age. You went through several surgeries in the past few years, but I have not been ill all this time. Don’t you think Dafa is magical?”
Yang: “A classmate of mine is a Dafa practitioner, despite the CCP’s persecution, he insists on practicing. His health is good and he never takes medicine.”
Me: “Practitioners are healthy after practicing the exercises and studying the Fa, so they have no need to take medicine. Only Dafa can resolve the suffering and problems in your life! Life is short and it’s not easy to encounter Dafa! It’s fate for us to meet and be able to discuss this.”
Yang: “Okay, I will practice Falun Dafa and encourage my wife to also. She has now been promoted to the rank of Discipline Inspection Secretary and Deputy Director. She will retire in a few years, and then we will move to south China and practice Dafa every day.”
Apparently, Yang was afraid of the persecution because he knew deeply about the evil nature of the CCP. We discussed that I would download Teacher Li Hongzhi's (Falun Dafa's founder) books, including Zhuan Falun and The Great Way of Spiritual Perfection, to a USB drive so he could read them from his personal computer.
He was eager to begin practicing and asked me what he could do before receiving the USB drive. I told him to repeat, “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!” He repeated the sentences again and again so he could commit them to memory.
The following morning, Yang called me, “I repeated those sentences last night. I slept soundly. I have not been this comfortable for a long time.” In the afternoon, he came to my office to pick up the USB drive, and we continued to talk for hours.
Yang called me again on July 15: “After I left your office that night, I drove through a dark forest. It was storming, and the thunder was roaring. I became frightened, my legs trembled, and my heart began to palpitate. I was worried my body could not handle the stress. So I started to repeat, ‘Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.’ Gradually, I calmed down, and I was not afraid. My body filled with energy, and I returned home safely. I really don’t know what to say.”
I asked, “Have you read the book?” “Yes, the books are wonderful! I have been reading them on the computer for the last few days. Now I understand that finding Dafa is like gaining a fortune for me. Thank you ever so much!” I told him not to thank me, but Teacher Li instead.
After talking to Yang, my eyes filled with tears as I thought about Teacher’s boundless compassion. We cannot possibly imagine the immeasurable amount of sacrifice that He endures to save all the people in the world. There are no words to describe my gratitude!
