We Stopped “Playing Dead”
(Minghui.org) I couldn’t go out to clarify the truth after our work unit was locked down because of the Wuhan virus. I went out to buy groceries occasionally, but I had no way to clarify the truth to people and help them quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). This went on for more than a month. I started to worry that I was falling behind in saving people but told myself, “It’s not that I don’t want it. It’s that conditions don’t permit it.” I kept looking outwards.
I had a dream one night that I was on a battlefield. The enemy had attacked us and our side was retreating. I was about to retreat, too, but the enemy was so close that I had no time to run. So I played dead. I felt an enemy soldier step on my shoulder and then heard him chase after our retreating soldiers.
After I woke up, I told my dream to my practitioner wife. “Self-quarantining is like playing dead on the battlefield,” I said. We agreed that we had to resume going out to save people. If we don’t save people, we are lacking compassion. If we don't live up to our vows, how can we return to our original, true selves? If we don't do the three things, we are not listening to Master Li. Are we still Dafa disciples? We both agreed that, whatever the circumstances, we should resume going out to clarify the truth.
Although it was not as easy to talk to people as it had been, I could persuade two or three to quit the Party each time I went out. Sometimes I just spent a few hundred yuan that had truth-clarification information written on the notes or passed out a few brochures, but it was better than “playing dead” at home.
We often share our experiences and understandings. We have realized that there really is not much time left in the Fa-rectification period. We are really at the very end of the end. If it really does end, we really will not have any more opportunities and it will be too late to even cry.
If that is the case, what about our relatives in our heavenly worlds? What about the sentient beings in our heavenly worlds? And what we will ourselves do? What about the millions of years of waiting throughout the ages? Isn't it frightening? Of course there are challenges and the difficulties are great. But without difficulties, there is no mighty virtue. As long as we have the heart to save people, Master’s law bodies and the righteous gods will help.
On one occasion, I had not talked to a single soul for an entire morning. I was sad that I couldn’t save more lives, so I asked Master to bring predestined people to me. On my way home, I met one.
Master is really the one saving people. We merely move our lips and our feet, but Master gives all the mighty virtue to us.
