Cherishing the Opportunity to Help Master Awaken People
(Minghui.org) My mother started practicing Falun Dafa when I was two years old. When I was big enough, I became a young Dafa practitioner and went to the market with her to clarify the truth of Dafa.
However, after I started going to school, I slacked off in my cultivation, and acted as an everyday person. Dafa was deeply rooted in my heart though, and when I went to college I started practicing again, and decided to cultivate diligently. I graduated a few years ago.
I wanted to clarify the truth to people. Sometimes, even in my dreams, I was clarifying the truth. But I only had the courage to talk to my coworkers. The effect wasn't that good and I hadn’t successfully managed to persuade them to quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its youth organizations. I began preparing truth-clarifying materials and going to high rise buildings to distribute them.
Master gave me hints all the time. One night, I had a dream where I had to take exams. There were many exam rooms. I had completed all of the exams, except one. That one was to test my Mandarin. I prepared my ID and rushed to the exam room. The door was closed, so I knocked. The invigilator opened it, and said, “We just closed the door and are ready for the exam. I haven’t checked the number of attendees or given out the exam sheets yet. Come in and sit in your seat!”
I went to my seat and looked at the exam, but I couldn’t answer any of the questions. I knew it was Master’s hint that I should go out to clarify the truth to people. Since then, I started going out to let people know about Falun Dafa.
First Time Clarifying the Truth
I rode my electric bike very far and met an elderly man. I asked Master to strengthen me as I wanted to clarify the truth to him. However, I didn’t know where to start. I stopped my bike in front of him and said, “Hello, I would like to give you a 2021 calendar. Would you like one? It's free.”
The man was a little deaf so I had to speak louder, but I was already scared. I thought that since I've started I should just carry on. I spoke louder, and asked him, “Do you want a 2021 calendar?” When he heard that it was free, he said, “Yes, I want it.”
I didn’t know what to say next, but I thought that I had come to awaken his conscience and should tell him. I said, “Grandpa, this is about Falun Gong (also called Falun Dafa).”
“Yes! I want it even if it has to do with Falun Gong.” My heart melted when I heard these words. I asked if he had heard about quitting the CCP, to which he replied, “I didn’t join any of the CCP's organizations. I'm 80 years old. I didn’t wear the red scarf or go to school any more and worked in the fields.”
“Then please remember,” I said, “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” Now there is a pandemic. If you recite these words it will help you.”
This was the first time that I clarified the truth to someone I didn't know. Master strengthened and encouraged me.
Elderly Man Quits Young Pioneers
I went to a village with another practitioner to clarify the truth. While I was riding my bike, I saw an elderly man come out from an alley. I went over to him. I smiled, and said, “Do you want a calendar?”
He said that he did, but wanted to know if he had to pay for it. “It’s free,” I replied, “It is a Falun Gong calendar. It's very pretty. Let me show you.”
I gave him the calendar and started clarifying the truth. “I want to ask you, have you heard about quitting the CCP to protect yourself?”
He told me that he was not affiliated to any of their organizations, so I asked, “Did you ever wear the red scarf when you were younger?” “That was long time ago,” he responded. “I've quit already.”
“That's not quitting,” I said. “You know that the CCP has killed so many people through its political movements. It will be punished by heaven. When you joined the Young Pioneers and wore the red scarf, you raised your fist and vowed that you would give your life to it. It is most important to keep yourself safe and healthy. You can’t be aligned with the CCP. Falun Gong teaches people to be good and asks them to follow the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.”
After telling him more about the practice, I said, “Let me help you quit. Although I don’t know you, I wish you a safe and healthy future. What's your family name?” He told me, and I gave him a pseudonym to help him quit the Young Pioneers. I told him to remember the name.”
I felt surrounded by a warm energy, and I had tears in my eyes. Master does everything for us, but gives us the mighty virtue. We should do the three things better in return for Master’s boundless mercy and protection.
Master Strengthened Me
I met two sanitation workers in the village, and asked them if they would like a calendar. They told me that they didn’t need one, so I said, “During the pandemic, it's good for us to know the news better to protect ourselves.”
One replied, “We watch the news everyday. We know everything. There's a pandemic, but we have to come out to work.”
I wanted to leave as they didn’t want any informational materials from me, and there was a security monitor overhead. However, I thought, I came out to awaken the conscience of sentient beings and everyone is here for the Fa, so I couldn’t leave. I asked Master to protect me from the monitor.
I said to the workers, “It doesn’t matter if you don’t want a calendar. However, there is something I want to tell you. Please pay more attention as you come out to work every day. Now you see the pandemic comes back and you know many people are infected again. Who are saving people? Who are telling the lies? These years, Falun Gong practitioners come out to let people know the truth regardless of the weather. I am here to tell you the facts about the persecution, the beauty of Falun Gong, and hope that you stay safe. The virus is so tiny, but it causes people to die. Buddhas and heavenly beings are incomparably huge. If you believe in them, they can protect you.”
One of them nodded while he listened. I told them about the persecution and the self immolation hoax on Tiananmen Square. These two men didn’t want any informational materials that I had, but both quit the CCP
During the process, I felt Master was strengthening me. I felt I was surrounded by a warm energy so that every sentence I said was very calm. I was thinking about them and hoping that they could be protected and become lives in the new cosmos.
Meeting More People
While I was on a small country road, I saw a person herding sheep. I didn’t think much except to awaken his conscience. I stopped my bike, walked over to him, and greeted him politely. “I have come far. I am here to give you good luck. This is a truth-clarifying calendar.”
He thanked me as he took it. I asked him if he had quit the Party, to which he replied he had not. "I've come from the city,” I said. “It's very cold and I am here to give you this calendar. It's for your safety. The CCP has done so many bad things and the pandemic is here to punish it. I hope you can be safe. Let me help you quit.” He agreed. I gave him a pseudonym to quit the Party.
During our conversation, I thought about Master’s Fa,
“Compassion can harmonize Heaven and Earth, ushering in springRighteous thoughts can save the people in this world.”(“The Fa Rectifies the Cosmos,” Hong Yin Vol. II)
Another practitioner and I met a couple riding an electric bike. We waved to them and smiled. They stopped, and we greeted them. My fellow practitioner clarified the truth to the husband, and I talked to the wife.
The husband laughed at us when we spoke about Falun Gong, and didn’t want to listen. The wife was interested, so I told her that I had graduated from college. She looked me up and down. She was surprised that I was so young and that I had a higher education and practiced Falun Dafa. Both accepted the Dafa materials we had and quit the CCP.
Once, I spoke to a man and helped him quit the Party. After I was done talking, he said, “Are you just over 20? You are so young, and you still practice Falun Gong?”
“Yes.” I replied, “I also do my best at work. I try to be a good person based on the principles 'Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance'. Falun Dafa practitioners will look young as long as they have good thoughts.” He smiled.
I met an elderly man riding a bike. I waved him to stop and asked if he wanted a calendar. He said, “I don’t need anything.”
“That's fine if you don’t want it. I do have one thing to tell you. Have you heard about quitting the CCP to protect yourself? The CCP has done too many bad things and we should all quit the Party.”
The man’s tears ran down his face. I thought it was because of the wind, but he said, “I didn’t join anything. I have suffered so much. My father was a landlord. We were forced to attend ‘criticism-exposure meetings’, with banners hung around my neck, and my head lowered to be criticized... I have suffered so much. How can I support it? I am over 80. No one cares about me.”
I felt sad for him, “Yes, these are crimes the CCP has committed. It hurts and the injuries will never heal. Now it is our predestined relationship that I tell you, please remember ‘Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.’ You will be protected. The pandemic is coming, please tell your family members the lucky words and keep your family safe.” I then gave him an amulet.
There are a lot of these types of experiences. Each time, before I go out, I ask Master to strengthen me, send forth righteous thoughts, and not allow the old forces to interfere with me when I talk to people.
I understand it is Master who is doing this. I get hints from Master to go out to clarify the truth. Master helps me meet people with predestined relationships and gives me wisdom to clarify the truth to them.
Sometimes, I meet someone who is very stubborn and doesn’t want to listen to me. Then, I meet people who are very willing to hear the truth. After I am done, they invite me for coffee, or hold my hand, or say “thank you.” It is Master who encourages me not to give up and continue to move forward. I am very thankful.
In 2015, I filed a criminal complaint against the former CCP leader Jiang Zemin for instigating the persecution of Falun Gong.
My parents tried to force me to give up my belief, otherwise they would sever relations with me.
I was at school, when a fellow practitioner called me, and said, “Don’t give up. There is a war between righteousness and evil. Please persevere.”
When I turned around, I saw a big splendid firework bloom in the sky. Tears covered my face. I knew it was Master encouraging me.
