Nothing Can Stop Me from Saving People
(Minghui.org) I began practicing Falun Dafa in 1998. Soon after, not only did my long-term illnesses disappear, but my character also improved.
Memorizing Zhuan Falun
In 2007 after I was released from a forced labor camp I decided to memorize Zhuan Falun. Every morning after breakfast until noon, I memorized 4 to 6 pages. I recited each part repeatedly until I memorized it. The next day, I repeated the part I'd memorized the day before and then memorized the next part.
After I finished the first lecture, I recited it to a fellow practitioner who helped me by correcting the places I'd memorized incorrectly.
When I recited Lecture Six, I did not make a single mistake. That was a big encouragement for me.
While I memorized Lecture Eight, I was interrupted for about a year due to some strong interference from my family. I resumed memorizing Zhuan Falun a year later and finished the entire book. I started to recite the book from memory during group Fa study. Fellow practitioners patiently corrected me when I made mistakes.
While memorizing the Fa, many of my human attachments were exposed and I eliminated them. My righteous thoughts became stronger and stronger. One day while I was reciting Lecture Six, my mind was so pure that only Dafa was in it. I did not have a single distracting thought. It was a truly wonderful feeling. The following morning when I did the third exercise, Penetrating the Cosmic Extremes, my hands went up and down automatically.
I memorized the Fa while riding a bus. My heart was full of compassion. I really felt pity for the people around me, struggling in this filthy world. They are all good people and I wanted to save all of them!
Since 2010, I no longer needed to bring the book to group Fa study. I've now recited the Fa from memory countless times.
Nothing Can Stop Me from Saving People
Clarifying the truth to people can be challenging. From time to time, I've encountered people who were completely brainwashed by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and refused to listen. Some insulted me. Others reported me to the authorities. I did not hate them. Instead, I looked inward to see where I did not do well. I tried to understand them and hoped they would have a good future. Clarifying the truth strengthened my will and expanded my compassion. I used my free time to save them. Yet they were not grateful, and furthermore, they wanted to harm me. Should I stop saving them? No! I should still do my best to save them!
Saving people is not easy. During hot summer and cold winter days, we walked through large streets and small alleys to talk to people and tell them the truth. During a strong winter storm, several fellow practitioners and I finished our group Fa study. We did not hesitate and headed out. A practitioner and I were giving out new year calendars which contained information about Dafa. The more calendars we handed out, the warmer we felt. Everyone we gave a calendar to was happy to receive it. Some said, “You are handing out calendars in such cold weather! You practitioners are amazing!” When people expressed their gratitude, we told them, “No need to thank us. Please thank Falun Dafa's Master, who asked us to save people.” That day we walked a lot, but we did not feel tired at all. Instead, my legs felt very light. I knew Master was encouraging us!
One day, we handed out new year greeting paintings. I opened a roll with a painting of an auspicious child and the words, “Falun Dafa is good.” A gentleman smiled and asked if he could have this painting. He read out loud, twice, “Falun Dafa is good!”
Whenever my attachments of fear, comfort, or self-protection surfaced, I forced myself to go out to save people. As soon as I went out, those attachments were taken away by Master. When I and my fellow practitioners cooperated well, every person we talked to accepted the truth and many of them withdrew from the Chinese Communist Party organizations. I am so happy for those we saved!
In this world, what could be more important than saving more people? Knowing Master's boundless mercy and how much Master have sacrificed, there is no reason for me to stop saving people.
Surveillance Cameras and “Sensitive Dates” Do Not Exist
When I first began clarifying the truth, I was afraid to go to crowded places. I also chose to talk to people whom I felt comfortable with. I was gradually able to talk to anyone anywhere, including on busy roads and crowded markets. Some practitioners worried about surveillance cameras. When I saw one, I sent out a clear thought: let the camera only photograph the bad people. It cannot see good people and will not record me. Most of the time, I paid no attention to surveillance cameras. I was focused on looking for predestined people and saving them.
Occasionally, if I got nervous about surveillance cameras. I recited Master's teaching,
“If something is not within the scope of a time-field, it is not restricted by that time. In other dimensions, the concepts of time-space are different from ours here, so how can the time here regulate the matter of other dimensions? It can’t have any impact at all.” (Lecture Two, Zhuan Falun)
Master also said,
“Transcending the Five Elements and the Three Realms” (Lecture Two, Zhuan Falun)
I understood that a Dafa disciple's body is made of high energy matter. It is beyond the Three Realms. Surveillance cameras could not work on me.
I also paid no attention to the CCP's so-called “sensitive dates.” Whenever large-scale harassment and arrest of practitioners happened, some practitioners did not go out for a few days. My family also advised me to wait. I felt pressure as well. But as soon as I thought of those who are waiting to be saved, I was firm: I must go out to save people, no matter what.
“A demon will never be higher than a Tao.” (Lecture Five, Zhuan Falun)
Sometimes, local officials arranged for residents to monitor me. I ignored them and I continued going out every day.
Once, after local officials harassed my family, my family members were scared and advised me not to contact other practitioners. I was not disturbed. I thought: I will not acknowledge old forces' arrangements. If I have a loophole in cultivation, I will correct it by following Dafa. Only Master has the final say.
I go out to save people every day. Sometimes I talk to people face to face; other times I distribute truth-clarification materials in residential areas. When I prepare the materials, I tell every copy to save those who read them.
During the CCP virus pandemic my area was not strictly locked down. I continued to distribute truth-clarification materials in my neighborhood and other areas.
Master told us,
Each time I distribute materials in a residential area, I clean the surrounding area so that people will accept the materials. I do not glue anything on people's doors directly. I never leave the backing papers on the ground after peeling them off. I try not to trouble anyone. A true practitioner should always consider others first.
Cooperating with Other Practitioners
Sometimes I go out with a fellow practitioner. There have been times when the practitioner got into trouble – the people who do not understand the truth wanted to report her to the authorities. In the beginning I was scared and tried to hide or get away. As my cultivation improved, my attachment to fear lessened. Master removed a lot of my human attachments, such as fear and selfishness. Now whenever anyone tries to interfere I come to the practitioner's rescue. We must stop people from committing crimes towards Dafa.
On one winter day, the fellow practitioner and I were talking to people separately. Suddenly I noticed that she was in trouble. A man stopped her from leaving. I thought, I won't allow my fellow practitioner to get persecuted. I need to stop the man from doing bad things. I quickly walked towards them while sending righteous thoughts. Right before I reached them, the man gave up and let her go. From the surface, the evil behind the man was dissolved after I sent righteous thoughts. In fact, it was Master who helped us when I and the practitioner cooperated well as a team.
In a similar incident, when the practitioner talked to a man in his 60s, he grabbed her handbag and shouted that he would report her. I hurried over and asked the man what was going on. He said, “She is a Falun Dafa practitioner and asked me to withdraw from the CCP.” While we talked, that practitioner quickly walked away. The man noticed she was leaving and wanted to catch her. I stopped him and continued to tell him the truth in the third person. I said that Falun Dafa is not bad like what is said on TV. I said that the CCP arrests good people including those who petition against unfairness. I told him about my relative whose land was taken by a local communist official. In the end, my relative was the one who was arrested. He asked which village my relative was from. It turned out he knew that village and even knew the official's name. As we talked his attitude changed and he became friendly.
Recently, the district officials came to my home while I was away. They pressured my family to sign a guarantee letter—that I would not practice Falun Dafa. I was very sad after I learned that a family member had signed it. I went to see the officials and told them that Falun Dafa is good.
This incident also showed me that I had not cultivated well. I looked inward and found my laziness, lust, jealousy, and mentality of showing off.
I intensified my Fa study and sending righteous thoughts. I did the exercises every day and did the second exercise for at least an hour.
After millions of years of waiting, I am so honored to be a Dafa disciple today. I am so grateful for Master's mercy!
