(Minghui.org) I am a nurse in a family clinic. When the pandemic first started, there was fear and panic. This was more common among healthcare workers. Because of the pandemic, my friends at work changed their routines. They changed their clothes four times a day, took a bath as soon as they got home without touching anything, and washed their clothes daily. They changed masks throughout the day, washed their hands countless times, and applied disinfectant. Our rooms were disinfected every week. Uncertainty made everyone fearful. My close circle of non-practitioner friends constantly warned me to be careful.

How should I view this situation as a nurse who practices Falun Dafa? My faith in the Fa was unwavering. I thought, “I’m not an ordinary person, I’m a practitioner. I’m immune to disease, and I won’t do anything out of the ordinary.” Master’s article “Rationality” strengthened my stance on this. I haven’t made any changes to my routine. I go home for lunch in the same clothes. I wash my jersey once a week as usual. I wash my hands like I’ve always done, I do not use disinfectant, and I did not disinfect my room. I put my mask on when the patient comes in so as not to be disrespectful.

Master said:

“Those among Dafa disciples who are not diligent or have gone to extremes, hurry and set yourselves straight; study the Fa and cultivate yourselves sincerely because you are amid the gravest danger. Genuine Dafa disciples all carry energy and are themselves beings who eliminate karma and eradicate germs. They are the envoys of salvation at the end times, and they all know to be rational in saving people and clarifying the truth.” (Rationality, Team Blue)

“Dafa disciples, don’t get caught up in the chaos. Hold on to the fundamentals—only then will you be able to see the chaos for what it is.” (Rationality, Team Blue)

After reading this article, I put more effort into my cultivation. I did the five exercises for two hours each day and increased my Fa-study.

“You are here not to alter history but to save people amid history’s gravest peril.” (Rationality, Team Blue)

I realized that I hadn’t been trying to clarify the truth. Caught up in the daily work, I’d forgotten about saving people. So I started offering fliers to every person I helped in my job (giving injections, dressing wounds, monitoring, collecting blood, vaccinating, etc.). My first priority was to explain what Falun Dafa is and how it’s being persecuted. In a practitioner’s article I read during the epidemic, a practitioner in China was clarifying the truth while distributing leaflets. A recipient said that the practitioner had given him a brochure five years before, but that he did not know about the persecution. Perhaps the person had not read the brochure properly. For this reason, I wrote on the brochures, “You can watch the documentary Hard to Believe on the internet, which is currently free of charge due to the Coronavirus crisis.” I explained the truth and encouraged people to watch this documentary about the persecution.

Since I usually walk to and from work, I started giving out brochures to people I met on the street. I also realized that I hadn’t tried to talk to the shopkeepers I have been passing for years. I started giving out brochures to shopkeepers on my way and told them about the persecution. One morning there were several people at a construction materials business. One of them, a man in a suit, got very angry when I gave them brochures and told them about the persecution. I realized that he sympathized with communism and was influenced by it. I was angry inside and couldn’t explain enough. I left because I was late for work. He was still getting angry behind my back and said that the persecution wasn’t real.

As I walked away, I was still angry with that man. Then I realized that my thinking was wrong and I looked inward. I realized that I wasn’t tolerant and did not speak compassionately. I was sorry. I asked Master for help to meet him again. I asked him to give me strength and wisdom when the time came.

A week later, I saw that gentleman walking by. As I headed his way, he approached me, and at the same time we apologized to each other. I apologized to him for leaving in a hurry. While sending righteous thoughts, I mercifully explained about the persecution to him. He thanked me and we both were happy and had tears in our eyes. I knew Master had arranged this. I thanked Master with sincere happiness.

Master said:

“I often say that if a person is free of any personal notions, isn’t motivated by self-interest, and is truly looking to benefit others, then when he points out another person’s shortcoming or tells the other person what’s right, that person will be moved to tears.” (Teachings at the Conference in Singapore)

Tested by the Coronavirus

At the height of the epidemic, patients began to come to us first with the first symptoms of coronavirus. The doctor I worked with got the coronavirus. I looked into my heart for this. I treated this as a test and was not worried. I sent him the music “Pudu.” I told him to repeat the words, “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance is good.” He said that listening to Pudu at a time when he was very worried gave him relief. His wife said that he repeated the words often, and although the coronavirus test was positive, he did not have any symptoms. My doctor had bought the book Zhuan Falun but had not read it, yet he knew that Falun Dafa was good and he had even done the exercises twice. He survived the illness with very little discomfort. All my doctor and nurse friends at work had bought the book Zhuan Falun. They knew that the Fa was good, as did their families, and we had also exercised together once. None of them got sick.

After the pandemic started to ease a little, the coronavirus vaccine came. First, health workers were vaccinated. All of the staff except me have been vaccinated. My doctor said to me, “It’s selfish of a healthcare provider not to be vaccinated, but you’re an exception and I’m excluding you from that requirement.” This was because he understood that Falun Dafa is good and why I wasn’t vaccinated.

I once again realized how fortunate I am while going through this pandemic during the Fa-rectification, feeling the responsibility of being a part of Dafa outside of the chaos. Words cannot express my gratitude to Master for giving me this opportunity. I will do my best to be a worthy disciple of Dafa, to complete my journey, and to return to my true home with Master’s guidance.
