(Minghui.org) I am an elderly Falun Dafa practitioner. Most people my age are old and weak and are suffering from one kind of disease or another. But given the blessing of Master Li Hongzhi (Dafa's founder) and the great power of the Fa, I am in very good health and full of energy, no different from a young person in their 20s. I have no concept of “old” in my mind.

My life is well-organized. I get up at 3:15 a.m. every day for morning exercises before I send my grandchild to kindergarten. I eat a simple breakfast before going out to clarify the truth to people with other practitioners. In the afternoon, I study the Fa at home, copy or memorize the Fa, and also read the scriptures of Master’s teachings. When doing household chores, I would listen to the experience sharing on the Minghui radio, so I can keep my main consciousness focused and not easily disturbed by thought karma and external information. Thus, I can maintain the positive thoughts of a practitioner and cultivate myself by looking inside and fixing my shortcomings.

Master has told us in his many teachings that practitioners have an important mission. As a veteran practitioner, I am well aware of the great responsibility I have. For several years, fellow practitioners and I overcame interference and fear. We go out every day to clarify the truth and persuade sentient beings to quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its youth organizations. Rain or shine, we never stop.

Since I go out every day to clarify the truth, I have to face people with different kinds of thoughts, and the ridicule and abuse of people who do not know the truth. All these are testing the practitioner’s xinxing all the time. I ask Master to strengthen me every day, so that I can expand and re-expand my capacity and compassion. I display a good image in front of the world’s people, and I also ask Master to give me the power and energy to awaken the conscience of more people.

Awaken the Conscience of Beings During the Pandemic Is Urgent

After the New Year in 2020, the Wuhan virus spread rapidly throughout China, and my city was no exception. The ordinary people were panicking, but Dafa disciples have the Fa in their hearts, so they can face the problem openly. We know more than ever that the world is in trouble, and we need to make use of the time to awaken the conscience of sentient beings.

The Minghui website soon published special truth pamphlets, and practitioners at the materials production site printed 600 copies of the materials and sent them to me after overcoming all the difficulties. I studied the Fa and sent forth righteous thoughts during the day and went out at night to distribute the materials. In order to distribute to a few more communities, I climbed upstairs and downstairs, walking quickly through building after building, passing unit after unit, hoping only that sentient beings can get help from Dafa in times of crisis, and their conscience awakens. Once I met a policeman who stared hard at me because there were few pedestrians on the street and my face was red and sweating. But I was not afraid at all and walked past him calmly.

In addition to distributing materials, I did not stop face-to-face clarifying the truth. In the morning, I take the opportunity to buy groceries to basically persuade the employees of several supermarkets around me to quit the CCP. In the afternoon, when my son returned home from work, I went out again to clarify the truth. 

My son and daughter-in-law opposed my going out every day, but I said to my son, “Our Falun Dafa teacher, Master Li Hongzhi, has been preparing for rectifying the Fa for tens of thousands of years, and now it is time for us to awaken people. We are cultivators, we are energetic, and we will be fine. If you stop me, your blessings will immediately be lessened--you have benefited because you support my cultivation.” Once he realized that he could not stop me from going out, he just reminded me not to go to crowded places and to protect myself. 

One day during the 2020 New Year, I spoke to a total of 24 people, which was rare because many people did not come out, and there were very few people outside, and I knew this was Master‘s compassionate arrangement and encouragement. After Master published the new article “Stay Rational,” I was relieved to know that I had the right enlightenment and had done the right thing, that I had not let my heart and affection get in the way.

The most serious phase of the pandemic had temporarily passed after April 2020, and the environment became more relaxed. The lockdown of the city’s districts and counties was lifted, businesses resumed normal operations, more people came out, and the streets returned to the bustling traffic. 

Because the CCP deliberately concealed the pandemic, the Wuhan virus not only ravaged our whole country but then spread around the world. Then the Party boasted how effective it was in fighting the pandemic, how effectively it was taking measures, how well it was doing. It blew its own horn and exaggerated the seriousness of the pandemic abroad, using its propaganda machine to confuse people and continue to create a false image of itself as “great, glorious, and correct,” confusing and poisoning many Chinese.

After the pandemic slowed down, fellow practitioners and I saw this phenomenon and felt very bad: the evil Party is so bad and cunning that it has used all kinds of tricks to prevent sentient beings from being saved. The lives of those who listened to the lies of the evil Party were in danger. What should we do? In such a difficult and complicated situation, it is all the more necessary for us Dafa practitioners to be compassionate and persistent in clarifying the truth, helping the world to distinguish the truth from falsehood, and to see clearly the chaos.

Master said,

“You are not here to change history, but rather, to save people at this most dangerous time in history…” (“Stay Rational,” Team Yellow Translation)

“The CCP is in its death throes and trying to harm people by causing pandemonium in the world. ” (“Stay Rational,” Team Yellow Translation)

It is difficult to awaken the conscience of people, the evil communist spirits are pulling and robbing people from us. The performance of the sentient beings after the pandemic makes me feel more aware of the great responsibility on my shoulders, I can’t slack off, and I can only be more diligent in awakening the conscience of sentient beings.

My neighborhood is a commercial center, shopping center, residential neighborhood, and a large wholesale market. The traffic flow is very high, and there are a lot of different people from surrounding areas doing small business. In the evening, there are many people resting, strolling, and walking around the square. Thus, I go out every morning, and after dinner, I go out again to walk around, and usually I can persuade at least five or six people to quit the CCP.

When I meet people who are more deeply deceived by the lies of the evil Party and do not want to listen, I won’t be moved and continue to look for the next predestined person. There are people who are very deeply poisoned and want to report me to the police. I am not frightened and am protected by Master, I ended up turning the danger into safety. When I go out, I basically clarify the truth wherever I go. As long as I am doing things to awaken the conscience of people, I feel energized and empowered. I deeply feel how honored and privileged Dafa practitioners are to follow our compassionate and great Master!

Letting Go of the Attachment of Profit 

I was illegally sentenced by the evil Party members. After releasing me, they continued to persecute me financially, withholding 1,000 yuan a month from me, saying that they were withholding back the salary I was paid when I was in jail, and the monthly pension that came to me was only about 1,000 thousand yuan. I am usually frugal in spending money on myself, but when it comes to clarifying the truth, I never consider personal gains and losses, and I’ve never been stingy with money.

Once I spoke to two young people, both of whom were very kind and accepted the truth and agreed to quit the CCP. One of them said, “Grandma, can you buy us a bottle of water?” The two children were 17 or 18 years old, dressed in average clothes, and did not look very well-off, so without saying a word, I immediately bought them each an ice cream and a bottle of coke. The two youngsters were so happy that they kept saying: “Thank you!”

Once I saw an old man begging. The old man looked more than 80 years old, very weak and aged. I went to the bus station to clarify the truth, he came over trembling and stood there unable to speak a word. I took out 10 yuan and handed it to him and said: go buy some breakfast. When the old man saw that I gave him so much money, he immediately took the money and left.

At this time, a woman next to me saw this scene and complimented me on my generosity. I said I was a Falun Dafa practitioner, cultivating goodness and compassion, and that his family probably had difficulty, otherwise he would not have come out begging. And then I immediately led the conversation to the truth and told her to quit the CCP. I told her that we practitioners do not lie. The woman immediately agreed to quit the CCP.

Master said, 

“In offering salvation to people, there is no condition or consideration for cost, reward, or fame. They are thus far nobler than the heroes of everyday people. They do it completely out of their benevolent compassion.” (Lecture Two, Zhuan Falun)

For a while, I went to the train station every day to clarify the truth. One day, I saw a young man sitting there, dressed quite fashionable, I clarified the truth to him, he said, “Grandma, can you buy me a meal? I haven’t eaten anything all day, and my cell phone was stolen (nowadays, young people in mainland China pay by cell phone, and rarely carry cash on them).” I immediately bought him rice and water and gave him another 20 yuan. I said to him, “Grandma is not rich either, I just did what I could to help you.”

There are also often some college students in the train station square, who work part-time while studying. They were there selling some signature pens. I bought a few pens from here and a few from there, and then I wisely clarified the truth to them and advised them to quit the CCP. Whenever I arrived at the station square, some young people saw me from afar and greeted me, shouting “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” Some young people’s physical images changed after they quit the CCP, and since the evil spirits behind them were eliminated, their bodies and minds were changed. I felt heartfelt joy for these saved lives.

Forming One Body with Fellow Practitioners

Master said, 

“Buddha’s light illuminates everywhere, Propriety and justice are perfected and illuminated. Together, wholeheartedly strive upward, The path ahead is bright.”(“Harmonizing with Fa,” Hong Yin, Translation Version B)

Dafa practitioners are one body. As a Fa-rectification period Dafa disciple, you not only need to do the three things well yourself, but you also cannot ignore fellow practitioners around you who have difficulties doing the three things and need help.

There is an elderly fellow practitioner Mr. Zhang who moved to our area. When he first came here, he was hindered from doing the three things because he was unfamiliar with the area. In the Fa-study group, because of his accent, fellow practitioners disliked his poor reading of the Fa and did not want him to come to study the Fa together. I said, “When fellow practitioner Zhang just obtained the Fa, he put aside his family and farm work, put aside his life and death, escorted his fellow practitioner who was facing arrest to escape from the chase, and spent nine years in jail himself – shouldn’t we help such a fellow practitioner? He will read Master’s Fa well.

In order to help Mr. Zhang get used to the city as soon as possible, I invited him to go out with me every day to clarify the truth. Because he has two grandchildren and lives far away, I adjusted the time and tried to go out at a time convenient for him. When I clarified the truth, he helped send forth righteous thoughts all the time; when I faced xinxing tests, he used Master’s Fa to enlighten me, and we worked well together. He said he was very touched that I was so kind to him. I said, “Dafa is good, Master taught me well, and we are fellow practitioners, so helping you is helping myself.”

After we cooperated for some period of time, the fellow practitioner is now able to do the three things well on his own.

There is also an elderly fellow practitioner Mrs. Bai, who has also been on the front line of truth-clarifying for several years and has been doing it very smoothly. Last June, she was falsely accused and arrested when clarifying the truth in a vegetable market in the city. At the police station, she had high blood pressure symptoms and the evil had to release her early.

She had just returned home for a few days and was still suffering physically. All the Dafa books in her home were confiscated by the police when they raided her home, causing her to suffer a mental blow as well. I encouraged Mrs. Bai not to be depressed, and to come out as soon as possible to clarify the truth. The next day she came out. The two of us went out together every morning, I clarified the truth, while she sent forth righteous thoughts. We cooperate very well. Soon, her body was back to normal and her face looked better. She looks very kind, people of all ages are willing to listen to her, and the effect of her truth-clarification is very good.

Mrs. Bai thanked me very much and often said that I helped her. I knew in my heart that Master was doing everything. Without Master’s great field of righteousness, without Master watching over and protecting his disciples, we would not even be able to protect ourselves, so how can we talk about saving people and helping fellow practitioners.

Master said, “Dafa disciples are now sentient beings’ only, sole hope for salvation.” (“Righteous Thoughts,”  The Essentials of Diligent Progress Vol.III

Dafa disciples are the most fortunate beings in the universe. In the most corrupt period of the universe, we are duty-bound to help Master awaken the conscience of sentient beings. Let us cherish the holy destiny of practicing in Dafa, walk firmly on the divine path of helping our Master to rectify the Fa, and do our best to do the three things in the final stage of the Fa-rectification.
