(Minghui.org) Everything changed in the world after the CCP Virus (coronavirus) broke out in early 2020. As a Falun Dafa practitioner, we were also faced with new challenges to assist Master Li in the Fa rectification.

When the pandemic first started, I thought, “I have been telling people about this for so many years, but some just wouldn’t listen and wouldn’t believe me! What about now?”

I immediately realized that my state of mind was not correct. How could I have negative thoughts as a Dafa practitioner?

Master Li said,

“Gather up and rescue the beings that you are to save! Have righteous thoughts and righteous actions, dissolve all hindrances, and spread the facts widely. Divine beings are among men.” (“To the European Fa Conference in Stockholm,” The Essentials of Diligent Progress Vol. III)

I had a sense of urgency to save people and realized that it was my responsibility and mission to help Master save more people at this critical moment in time. As a practitioner, I should not have any thoughts of gloating. I said to Master in my mind, “Master, I was wrong. I will clarify the facts to more people and do the three things well.”

Some of my family members and friends never wanted to listen to me talk about Falun Dafa in the past. I first sent these people a message about how to be safe in the pandemic. I received many replies that said, “Got it!” or “Understood!”

I really felt that this time they believed me from their hearts. They must have felt that I was truly concerned about them, so their attitude toward me changed completely. My concern for them to weather the catastrophe safely really touched their hearts.

Getting Out of My Residence

We have a barbershop, which is our whole family’s source of income. After the CCP virus broke out, I was forced to stay at home for the first month. I was getting very worried, as we didn’t have any income but still had to pay 6,000 yuan to rent the shop.

I then heard that other barbershops had reopened after acquiring reopening permits. But our residential community was very strict, and we couldn't get out without a pass. I would need a reopening permit to be able to get a pass from our community. But how could I get a reopening permit if I couldn’t go out? My heart was so moved that I couldn't even focus when I studied the Fa.

I looked inward and wondered, “Am I too attached to profits? Between earning money and saving people, which is more important? As a Dafa practitioner, what is my mission?”

I remembered Master’s teaching:

“Right now, one important thing that needs to be attended to is the matter of how to save more sentient beings, and it is something Dafa disciples are to accomplish during their current process of achieving Consummation. This is Dafa disciples' mission, a duty that cannot be shirked, something that they must do and must complete.” (“Fa Teaching at the 2007 New York Fa Conference,” Collected Fa Teachings, Vol. VIII)

This passage made me feel better. I knew I had to go out to clarify the facts. I had faith that Master would help me.

The next morning I got a phone call from an old customer who asked if the shop was open because he needed a haircut.

I told him that I couldn’t get out of my residential community and asked if he could help me get a reopening permit. He said it would be very difficult but he would try.

He called me again two hours later to say that he’d gotten the permit and would have someone deliver it to the gate of our community. When my husband took the permit and went to get a pass, the person in charge of issuing passes turned out to be his friend and former coworker who just happened to be helping in our residential community temporarily. He ended up giving my husband four passes.

With these passes, several other practitioners in our community could also go out to clarify the facts. When my husband went there again to thank his friend, he was already gone.

Master said,

“Every moment in your life is part of your spiritual journey, and at every moment I am looking after you.” (“Another Stern Warning”)

I knew Master had arranged everything—I never imagined that we could get the reopening and residential pass permits so quickly and with so little effort. My husband and I were both so grateful for Master’s compassionate arrangements.

Master Gives Me Wisdom

I only ever completed elementary school and was afraid to talk to people with better educations. Many of my customers were upper and middle class and, previously, I was afraid to clarify the facts to them. But facing this pandemic, Dafa practitioners are the only hope for people's salvation. Master has given me supernormal abilities to help save them, so what was I afraid of? I became much more confident in talking to people.

A college professor came to get a haircut. At first, he looked down on me when I clarified the facts to him. I then sent forth righteous thoughts to eliminate the old force factors behind him and asked Master to give me wisdom.

All of a sudden, I felt my mind become very clear. I talked to him about the current situation with the pandemic from my understanding. When I brought up China’s divine culture and the universe, I recited Master’s Fa to him:

“The vastness of the universe and the enormity of the cosmic bodies can never be understood by humans through exploration; the minuteness of matter can never be detected by humans. The human body is so mysterious that it is beyond human knowledge, which can merely scratch the surface. Life is so abundant and complex that it will forever remain an eternal enigma to mankind.” (“Firmament,” Essentials for Further Advancement)

He looked at me in surprise, “What school did you go to?” I said that I had only gone to elementary school and that the words were Master Li’s. I told him several traditional stories as well as what the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) was and how it would eventually be destroyed by heaven. I gave him examples of the miracles that practitioners have experienced and told him that the Buddha Fa is the highest science.

In the end, I said, “I’ve told you so much just so that you can stay safe.”

“Yes, I understand. Thank you! Thank you!” He quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations and accepted several Dafa amulets from me.

People Make Appointments and Wait in Line

During the worst times of the pandemic, there was a rule that only one customer could be inside my barbershop at any one time. Clients had to make appointments and wait outside for their turn.

Just like that, I was able to clarify the facts one-on-one with my customers, and they could listen and ask me questions without any concern that someone might be eavesdropping. I really tried to use this opportunity to save every single person who had the chance to come to my shop. I used to have a strong mentality of fear and only picked certain people to talk to. But now I clarified the facts to everyone, and 90% agreed to quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations.

I’ve discovered that people are eagerly waiting to be saved. There was one customer I had not seen for over 10 years. He didn’t know where my shop was because I had moved since the last time I’d seen him. When he came he said, “I’ve finally found you!” I knew that he had come to hear about Dafa. As I was giving him a haircut, I talked to him about the pandemic, and he quit the Party.

Another day, a director of a local bureau came in. I tried to clarify the facts to him but he wasn't happy and said, “Don’t talk about this. Just give me a haircut. My relative works in the police station and is in charge of Falun Gong cases. You cannot talk about this. It’s not good for you to do. Don’t do it in the future!” He tried to scare me and then left.

After a while, he came again for a haircut. He sighed and said, “I’m about to come down from my position and give the spot to the next generation.” I tried to comfort him and said, “That’s not so bad. You won’t have to worry about things anymore and can take a good rest. Nowadays, it’s not easy to be an official.”

We talked about other things and then I said, “I want to tell you something but I’m a little afraid. However, you have helped me with my business, and if I don’t tell you I’ll regret it because it has to do with your future and safety. This pandemic has taken so many lives. All those rich people and all those high-level officials—what could they do about it? What could they do with their money? Nowadays nothing is more important than being safe!”

“Very true! Very true!” he agreed.

I continued, “There is no one else in the room now. You don’t need to worry. Quitting the CCP to be safe is more important than anything. Also, you must remember to recite ‘Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good’ in case of a catastrophe.”

“Sure!” he said loudly. I was so happy for him.

When a retired military officer came in, I first sent forth righteous thoughts to eliminate any interference in other dimensions that would hinder him from accepting the information I had to give him. I then clarified the facts as I cut his hair. He didn't accept what I said at first. My husband became a bit worried and signaled to me several times to stop talking about it. But I didn't give up and kept sending forth righteous thoughts.

I spoke to him from my heart, “You're almost 80, and there is nothing more important than being safe. So many people have lost their lives due to the pandemic. You haven’t gotten a haircut in over six months. If the pandemic gets bad again, we may not see each other for a while, and I wouldn't have a chance to talk to you. I really want to tell you that you must remember ‘Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.’”

He was touched by my kindness and his attitude completely changed. He said, “Sure! I will recite it when I get home.”

I said, “You can recite it on your way home.” He agreed again and quit the CCP.

When the CCP virus came, I was able to overcome my mentality of fear, and, with Master's wisdom and the convenience of my shop, I was able to help over 300 people quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations. I really feel that all the sentient beings are waiting to be saved.
