Young Practitioner Continues Raising Awareness During the Pandemic
(Minghui.org) I was born in 1992 and started practicing Falun Dafa in early 1999 with my mother. I used to tell people that I was a child practitioner. Twenty-one years have passed, and I am now a young adult.
From elementary school to college, and now at work, I clarify the truth to the people around me. Many people are shocked to hear about the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) persecution. They decide to quit the CCP and keep in mind that “Falun Dafa is good.” I noticed that afterwards many of them experience positive changes in their lives.
One girl stayed at my place once and I used my computer to break through the Internet firewall to show her websites blocked in China. I told her the truth of the “self-immolation incident” and the CCP’s organ harvesting. She thanked me and immediately quit the CCP on the quitting CCP website. She later told me that she performed extraordinarily well in her school test, exceeding her expectations. She also did well when she applied for schools abroad. I was very happy for her.
When I was in high school, I was reported by someone for talking to people about Falun Dafa. The school began broadcasting programs that slandered Dafa and I was publicly criticized. Because of this, many of my classmates did not dare to associate with me. A girl in my class believed in Buddhism, so she believed me and quit the CCP. I told many other classmates about Falun Dafa – they were afraid and refused to listen, but this girl didn’t follow them. She was blessed and performed really well during the college entrance exams. Her grades in school were average, but she got into the best university in the province. She was later awarded first place in a teacher’s competition and taught at a public school near her home. Her husband’s family is in Wuhan. She and her husband went to visit his family this New Year, but got out right before the city was locked down. She says she feels blessed as she knows the truth, her whole family is safe and well.
There have been several similar incidents. I met two girls in college: Feifei and Linlin. After learning the truth of Dafa, they reacted differently and later had very different experiences.
Feifei was very shocked and sad to learn about the persecution of Falun Dafa, and agreed to quit the CCP. Since Linlin’s father is a political science professor, this influenced Linlin’s attitude. She wasn’t moved hearing about the persecution and refused to quit the CCP.
Feifei was not good at English or math but was admitted onto the Master’s Program she wanted; Linlin failed to get into any Master’s Program.
When the CCP virus (coronavirus) became rampant in China, I knew I couldn’t stay home. I had to put more effort into doing the three things. Every time I went out to distribute Dafa information, I would ask Master for protection so we could get in and out of the barricaded communities smoothly. We were always able to find our way in and out. Once we watched as one resident was stopped at a community entrance. He was questioned and had to show all kinds of passes and certificates, but we were allowed in easily. Sometimes, the gates of buildings that needed security codes to get in were not completely closed. They seemed to be waiting for us to go through. The epidemic situation was more severe in February, but I didn’t stop saving sentient beings during the entire pandemic.
The biggest lesson I’ve learned is that we must prioritize studying the Fa. Master said:
“The Fa can break all attachments, the Fa can destroy all evil, the Fa can shatter all lies, and the Fa can strengthen righteous thoughts.” (“Drive Out Interference,” Essentials for Further Advancement II)
I keep these words in mind, and I study the Fa every day. I’m not attached to reading novels, the internet, or playing video games, but my life is not dull. I do the three things well and continue to study and enrich my knowledge. I hope to save more sentient beings, to help them learn the truth and be blessed.
