(Minghui.org) I was so lucky to obtain Falun Dafa in May 2007, thanks to a colleague who introduced it to me. The profound Fa principles opened up my wisdom. I now understand that the real purpose of life is to return to one’s original, true self. I know that the three words Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance are the ultimate characteristics of the universe and “...the sole criterion that distinguishes good people from bad people.” (Lecture One, Zhuan Falun)
I used to suffer from trigeminal neuralgia, vertigo, rheumatism, and other diseases. I was miserable and felt that I would rather die than live. I indulged myself in bad habits of playing mahjong and ballroom dancing. I visited a mahjong center and a dancing room frequently. I was a drunk and lived a meaningless life. I was selfish with strong attachments to lust and desire. I sought fame, gain, and qing. I was lost in life and sunk into the muddy world without knowing it. I lived a tiresome and bitter life.
I became strict with myself and tried to comply with the principles in the Dafa books after I started practicing Falun Dafa. Our great Master purified my body and I recovered from all of my illnesses without any treatment. I felt light and tasted the sweetness of being illness-free. I came to understand the causal relationship behind retribution. One must pay back the debt if one has created karma. The reason that I had lived so bitterly for all of those years was that I had huge karmic debts. My heart opened up when I learned this principle. Falun Dafa and Master Li Hongzhi (Falun Dafa’s founder) are so great and have saved me from self-destruction and awakened me from the delusion. I have let go of all of my bad habits and become a good person. I have become a Falun Dafa practitioner.
Improving Xinxing While Making Materials
With the Fa-rectification progressing rapidly, our local practitioners established many material production sites. But due to the persecution of Falun Dafa by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), some practitioners were imprisoned. Some experienced sickness karma cleansing. Some went to other cities to work. Truth-clarification materials production was affected. I set up a materials production site in my home and supplied materials to the practitioners in my area and in another county. I bought a computer and a printer. I learned how to make materials from a technical support practitioner. My site was in a central location and around a big area. Practitioners required a lot of materials. I initially bought one printer and then I bought two additional printers.
I lived alone and lived a simple life. I just cooked once a day. I studied the Fa in the morning and went out to clarify the truth to people at noon. I started to make materials after lunch. I made dozens of copies of Minghui Weekly, and 100 or sometimes 200 pamphlets every week. I made materials at any time as long as practitioners had a request. A practitioner had initially provided me with a master copy, but I later started to download materials from the Internet to reduce the practitioner’s burden.
Two practitioners from our neighboring county were arrested six months ago. One of them was a practice site assistant. They had strong righteous thoughts and were released the same day.
An officer from our local police department called a practitioner in the neighboring county and asked if any practitioners in our area had contacted the two arrested practitioners. That practitioner was afraid and contacted the assistant in my area. This assistant worried about my safety, though I hadn’t contacted the arrested practitioner for several years. She asked me to hide and to move all of my machinery to another place. I said to her, “You sound like I am going to have trouble. If I have an omission, the evil will not let me go even if I go far away to heaven’s end. If I don’t have an omission, the evil dare not touch me.” I didn’t hide and continued to do whatever I should do. The assistant took my keys to the room where the consumables were stored and told other practitioners not to contact me.
I became upset and thought she had adopted methods that the CCP normally used to oppress people. I felt terrible and had hatred. Examples of her bad behavior flashed through my mind one by one. I became very angry and felt like I had a stone in my heart. The Buddhas, Daos, and Gods kept giving me hints when I was studying the Fa. I knew I had to increase my tolerance and improve. But my hatred resurfaced as soon as I put down Dafa books. The hatred lingered in my mind for a long time.
One practitioner shared with me and asked me to memorize the poem “Who’s Right, Who’s Wrong” from Hong Yin III.
“As a cultivatorOne always looks for one’s own faults’Tis the Way to get rid of attachments most effectivelyThere’s no way to skip ordeals, big or small“He’s right,And I’m wrong”,What’s to dispute?”
I started to recite it again and again, I didn’t know how many times I recited it until I suddenly understood that the assistant was not wrong. She had considered things for the whole body of practitioners and for me. She was actually being responsible to the Fa and to sentient beings. I saw my combativeness because I had a hot temper and always tried to take the upper hand in everything. What the assistant did was to remove my combativeness. The stone in my heart disappeared. I was thankful to her for helping me in my cultivation and for helping me let go of attachments.
Saving Sentient Beings with Urgency
Our city and local area were locked down after the epidemic broke out in Wuhan. But it didn’t lock up our hearts for saving sentient beings. I made materials during the day and prepared them for distribution at night.
The people who monitored the residential gates left between 7 pm and 9 pm every night. Other practitioners and I went out to distribute materials in the residential areas after midnight. We put up sticky posters at the gate of each building. The late night was quiet. We could do our job conveniently and securely. We could distribute about 200 copies and nearly 100 posters every night.
We went out late at night to distribute the materials. When we finished the surrounding residential areas, we reached out to more areas. Most of the residential compounds in my area were old types and didn’t have gates. People could come and go at ease. We distributed the fliers from the top floors down, floor by floor, unit by unit, leaving no households out. We put up the sticky posters on the front of each hallway. “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” “Reciting these nine true words can keep you safe amid the pandemic” Those colorful shining words were saving predestined people.
We started to clarify the truth to people face-to-face after the lockdown was lifted and encouraged them to withdraw from the CCP. I felt my responsibility to save sentient beings becoming bigger and the time becoming shorter. I was rescuing people from the grab of the pandemic spirit. The more people I saved, the more happy families there would be. But suddenly my left leg became painful. I limped. I was not bothered by the false illusion. I went out to clarify the truth to people every day that month. Before I went out, I sent forth righteous thoughts: “Eliminating all evil inside and outside the practitioners’ dimensional fields. Do not allow any evil beings to manipulate everyday people to interfere with practitioners’ saving sentient beings. Master, please help me and arrange the predestined people to come to me.” Some people berated me, spat at me and threatened to report me to the police. I was not moved because I was doing good deeds and the most sacred things.
One day I talked to four high school students about Falun Dafa. Some of them agreed to quit their memberships in CCP-affiliated organizations. As soon as we finished, one young man came over to ask the students what we had talked about and whether it was about Falun Dafa. I realized that this man was a plainclothes policeman. He had followed me all the way. I pleaded to Master in my heart to protect me and not allow him to persecute me so as to save him from dropping down into the gate of no-life. With Master’s protection, I managed to lose him after I turned into several alleyways and made a couple of turns.
On another occasion, I clarified the truth to a lady in her thirties at a bus stop and asked her if she was a member of the CCP and its affiliated organizations. She said she was. I urged her to quit the CCP so that she could be safe when the calamities came. She suddenly asked, “Are you practicing Falun Dafa? I am in charge of arresting Falun Dafa practitioners.” Hearing this, I was not moved.
Master’s Fa came into my mind:
“Just by staying unaffected you will be able to handle all situations.” (Teachings at the Midwestern U.S. Conference)
I sent forth strong righteous thoughts to dissolve the evil beings and elements behind her. I then said to her, “Child, it is no accident that I met you here today. You will be blessed if you quit the CCP. Regardless of who you are, what position you hold, or how rich or poor you are, you are a being who is supposed to be saved. I want you to be good and to be saved from the bottom of my heart. Human beings have to go through birth, aging, illness, and death. The universe has to go through formation, stasis, decline and destruction. It will be too late to do anything to avoid the catastrophe when it comes. Gods are watching people. The Master of Falun Dafa said,
“...Rich or poor, all the same, Nowhere to hide when calamity strikes....” (“Seek the Truth,” Hong Yin III)
I’d like to talk to you about Falun Dafa since you have mentioned it. Falun Dafa has been wronged. The Tiananmen self-immolation incident was a hoax that was staged by Jiang Zemin’s former regime to frame and slander Falun Dafa. Jiang Zemin, Zhou Yongkang and Bo Xilai are the prime culprits. Many high-ranking officials who were involved in persecuting Falun Dafa have received retribution. It is a heavenly principle that good will be rewarded and bad will be punished. Make sure that you do not follow in their footsteps.”
The lady didn’t say anything but changed her attitude completely. I helped her quit the CCP with an alias. I told her to remember “Falun Dafa is good and Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” She said she would. She was finally saved.
I clarified the truth to four university student tourists in front of a passenger terminal one day. They agreed with what I said and agreed to withdraw from the CCP and its affiliated organizations. When I left, one of them shouted, “Falun Dafa is good!” I looked back at them and felt happy for them.
At this crucial historic moment, as the Fa-rectification period is nearing an end, I will cultivate diligently and save more sentient beings.
