(Minghui.org) After I retired, due to the financial needs of my family, I took on another job, cooking lunch for a company’s employees. I had to do everything, from grocery shopping to washing, cutting, and cooking.

As a Falun Dafa (also called Falun Gong) practitioner, I must abide by high standards, get rid of selfishness, and keep the best interests of my employer in mind. Thus, I tried to be very careful about what I spent to buy the best vegetables, eggs, seafood, and meat. I always switched the recipes to cook different delicious meals. I always kept the kitchen tidy and put everything away. I did not complain about my salary.

Master said, “If something is yours, nobody will take it away, ...” (Lecture Seven, Zhuan Falun)

Although I knew clearly about the principles of the Fa, I felt uncomfortable when the human part played a role. I had to immediately correct myself. I am a practitioner, so not only do I have to think about others’ needs, but I also take the opportunity to awaken people's consciences.

I was quickly recognized for my work. When they were reimbursing me for expenses at the end of the month, the company managers and accountants were stunned. They said, “The food this month was wonderful. But you spent so little. How did you do it?” I told them I never squandered money or put any into my own pocket. One manager asked me if I was a spiritual person. When I told her I was, she said, “That’s wonderful. Let us know if you need anything.”

I never chatted during work hours. After I finished cooking the meal, I would leave the food on the table and let the staff help themselves. There was a sofa in the hallway. I sat there at noon and sent righteous thoughts. I didn’t put up my hand because I was in the hallway. But after the manager’s remark, I started sending righteous thoughts with my hand up. I always cleaned everything up before I left.

There were three managers in this company. I took the opportunity to clarify the truth to two of them individually. Both of them agreed with me and said that, because of me, they realized “Falun Dafa good.” They had no hesitation about using their real names to withdraw from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its youth organizations.

When I clarified the truth to the third leader, she was scared and said nervously, “Don’t tell anyone about this anymore. What if others find out? You’re such a good person—how can you practice this?” I said, “I became a better person only because I practice Falun Gong.

“The Tiananmen self-immolation is a hoax,” I explained. “What the television news and the newspapers say about Falun Gong are all rumors. You were deceived by lies.” I handed her a truth-clarifying brochure and told her, “Please look at this.” She looked at it and said, “I believe that Falun Gong is good, but now the situation is so bad, what can you do about it?”

“God looks at people’s hearts,” I said. “If you know the truth and treat Dafa and its practitioners well and withdraw from the CCP, you will have a bright future.” She said, “Then keep it between us.” She agreed to use her real name to withdraw from the CCP.

After that, I found opportunities to clarify the truth about Falun Gong to the rest of the employees one by one. Some were glad to quit the CCP. Some knew that Dafa was good, but when I mentioned quitting the CCP I felt that they had concerns.

Once, a manager called his mother to help me make dumplings. I thought this was a predestined opportunity arranged by Master and clarified the truth to her. She understood and used her real name to quit the CCP. She told me that she had a colleague who practiced Falun Gong and was very kind, but she was arrested and lost her job. I gave the woman several truth-clarification brochures and told her, “Pass them along to your friends and relatives. Those who know the truth will be blessed.”

One day, I saw a Falun Gong truth-clarifying sticker near the elevator door of the company’s building. There were many companies in that building, so many people had seen it. The police came to the company where I worked and said, “We found a Falun Gong sticker on the elevator door. We tried to get footage from the surveillance camera but it was broken. So we came to see if anyone in your company practices Falun Gong.” The manager replied, “No. No one here does.”

The Power of Dafa: Recovery from Surgery

An older woman had heart bypass surgery. A month and a half later, her incision still hadn’t healed. The doctor recommended a second surgery. One of this woman’s relatives found me and asked me to be her caregiver. When I first saw her, the woman was lying flat on the bed, unable to move. Someone had to hold her neck for her to sit up or lay down.

Every day, I took care of all the chores first, then clarified the truth about Falun Gong to her. I taught her to say “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” and read Zhuan Falun to her. She said that her family withdrew from the CCP a long time ago. However, they didn’t know much about Dafa. Sometimes when I was doing housework, I would let her listen to the practitioners’ experience sharing stories on Minghui Radio.

I cooked whatever she liked to eat and ate whatever she left. I made sure that everything was fresh. She lived in a 150-square-meter apartment, which I cleaned. I also found time to organize her closets and put all her clothes in order. She had high standards and was happy to see what I did. She told me, “I fired four helpers before you. Why didn’t you come earlier!”

She had a display cabinet with a lot of art works. Right in the middle was a metal statue of Mao. I told the woman, “This is a bad place to keep that statue. Mao killed a lot of people when he was in power. He had to pay the price.” “I paid 2,600 yuan for it,” she said. “It’s made of copper!” I could tell that, although she knew Mao killed people, she was reluctant to get rid of it because she’d paid a lot for it. I knew I had to take my time with this.

I found a black garbage bag, wrapped the statute in it, and put it under a piece of furniture. Two or three days later, when she couldn’t find the statue, she shouted at me, “Did you throw that statue away?” I told her I put it under a piece of furniture, then patiently talked about what she faced if she kept it. This time she understood that I had her best interests at heart and agreed to throw it away. I later asked someone to help burn it in an oven. It turned out that it was made of lime mortar.

The woman had to go to the hospital to have her incision checked every 15 days. By then I’d been working for her for a week. She was so happy when she returned from the hospital. Her incision had healed nicely. She felt the power of Dafa and immediately acquired a copy of Zhuan Falun. Every morning, I helped her read it. She read diligently and loudly, while I did the housework and listened to her. If she made an error, I would correct her.

Once I was doing the exercises in the morning. After I finished the third exercise and opened my eyes, I saw the woman lying on her back looking up at me. She said, “I want to go to the bathroom. I will wait for you to finish your exercises.” She went to the bathroom several times the next morning. She asked, “Why do I feel better each time?” I told her, “Because you have studied the Fa, you are cultivating your xinxing. You consider others first. Master has already taken care of you and purified your body.” She was so happy to hear this. After that, she insisted that I take a nap when we’d finished eating lunch and I’d cleaned up. Once, when I was about to take a nap, a friend of hers called and asked to come over. She told her friend to come in two hours.

Another time, two of her former colleagues came to visit. They each gave her 1,000 yuan to buy nutritious products. She did not accept the money. After her colleagues had gone, she told me, “This time, I know what Falun Gong is. It is making people be kind and cultivate their xinxing.”

Gradually, she also understood that Dafa practitioners were awakening people’s consciences by clarifying the truth. She frequently had visitors, such as relatives, friends, and colleagues. She told me, “Look at these people. Some are here to bless me. Some come to see me suffer. In the future, I will tell you to whom you may clarify the truth.”

She asked me to clarify the truth to a couple she was good friends with. I told them the truth about Falun Gong in detail. The woman understood and readily used her real name to quit the CCP. The gentleman hesitated. His friend said to him, “It is for your safety. Why are you hesitating?” That convinced the man to quit the CCP.

Another time, a female friend came to visit and complained about her difficulties. The woman comforted her and introduced me to her, “Let her tell you about life.” I told the friend the facts about Falun Gong. She understood and used her real name to withdraw from the CCP.

One time, after dinner, I asked the woman to listen to the experience sharing at a Fa conference. After I finished cleaning up in the kitchen and joined her, she told me, “Dafa disciples are so anxious to awaken people’s consciences. You go out and clarify the truth! I will sit on the sofa and wait for you as long as you are back in an hour.” I was really happy that she had such a good understanding.

I returned in an hour exactly. As I was about to knock on the door, the woman opened it. I asked, “Were you waiting for me at the door? Were you worried?” She said, “No, two colleagues came right after you left. I just said goodbye and tidied up the towels. I hadn’t had time to sit down before you knocked.” I told her that two ladies got out of the elevator when I got on. She said, “That must have been them.” I was very grateful to Master. Master is right by my side. It was all his arrangement. The woman asked how it went and I told her, “I gave out all the truth-clarifying materials that I had. Seven or eight people agreed to withdraw from the CCP.”

It was time for the woman to go to the hospital for an exam. This time, all the incisions were healed, but there was a red bean-sized area at the bottom of the incision. The doctor said, “You don’t need to come again, you can take a shower when you get home. From now on, you may bathe every four or five days, apply a little medicine to the red area, and put a bandage on it. Try not to stress yourself as much as possible.” During the 23 days that I was with that woman, Dafa showed its extraordinary power.

I used to have a bad temper,” she said, “but now I have changed. I really learned a lot from you. Even if I cannot be like you in the future, I know I will be a kind person. I will always support Dafa.”

Her daughter was the vice president of a foreign company. When she came to visit, she was so happy to see her mother had recovered so quickly. The daughter has long known the truth and quit the CCP. Now she witnessed the extraordinary power of Dafa. She immediately invited her mom and me to visit the resort where she worked. Witnessing the woman’s improvement, her whole family understood the truth of Falun Gong and also quit the CCP.

I know that I am a Dafa practitioner and my mission is to awaken people’s consciences. So many people are waiting for practitioners to awaken their consciences. I politely declined the daughter’s invitation. The next morning, I sent the woman off on her trip. I went home and started my next journey.

Clarifying the Truth to Neighbors

The family that lived upstairs from my apartment moved after they understood the truth about Dafa and withdrew from the CCP. The next family lived there for three years. They also moved after they had heard the truth and quit the CCP. Then another family moved in. They had been here more than a year, but I didn’t have a chance to clarify the truth to them. Then a few realtors stopped by, and I knew that they were planning to sell their apartment.

I stopped by and the owner greeted me enthusiastically, “Let them look over the apartment on their own. I would like to chat with you.” I found out that she was in her 30s and divorced. Her daughter was only four years old and her mother babysat her. She’d taken out a loan to buy the apartment, then her business lost around 300,000 yuan. To pay off the debt, she had no choice but to sell. I comforted her and told her the truth about Falun Gong. She understood and used her real name to withdraw from the CCP. I saw that she had been busy all day, so I went home, cooked a dinner, and took it to her. She was very grateful.

She sold the apartment without a problem. Shortly after, her mother came with her four-year-old daughter. I took a chance to visit her mother and clarify the truth about Falun Gong in detail. Her mother understood and quit the CCP with her real name. I always brought them the latest truth-clarification materials, such as magazines, brochures, amulets, and desk calendars. I suggested her mother take these back home during the Chinese New Year and give them to her family members. She agreed.

Another family lived upstairs from my apartment. They used to rent it out but recently moved in. The mother moved her from another city after the home was renovated. One time, I met the son who was struggling to move the washing machine upstairs. I offered to help him. The son gave me the key and said, “You can help me by opening the door.” After he moved the washing machine in, he took out a lot of cardboard boxes and gave them to me. I told him, “There is a recycling station by our building and you can sell these.” He replied, “I don’t have time. It’s too much trouble. You can take them!” I flattened the boxes and sold them. One day, I bumped into the son again and gave him the money. “I gave those boxes to you.” He tried to refuse. I told him, “Those cardboard boxes belonged to you, so the money should be given to you.” He was moved. He bumped into me again on the day his mother moved in and introduced me to her, The water pressure in the community was extremely low that day. They could not get any water in his apartment that day. So I brought up a bucket of water for them to use.

I thought this must be Master who arranged another predestined person to meet me. I sent righteous thoughts to awaken the conscience of this family. Shortly after, the mother came down. We felt familiar and not like strangers. She said, “I heard from my son that you are very kind.” She also mentioned that she had a tumor. So I told her the truth of Falun Gong right away. I told her that Falun Gong is one of the best practices of the Buddha School and has miraculous healing power, that Falun Gong teaches people to be good, to cultivate a good heart, and to have high morals. If someone emphasizes virtue and does good, it is more likely she will recover from illness.

I also told her that the Tiananmen self-immolation was a hoax, that the CCP harvests organs from Falun Gong practitioners and makes huge profits, and that God is about to destroy the CCP. Thus, one must quit the CCP. She agreed to quit with her given name. She also accepted truth-clarification materials.

Clarifying the Truth to Fruit Store Owner

A couple ran a fruit store. Every time I went to buy fruit, I would take the opportunity to clarify the truth to them. The owner didn’t like to listen and complained, “What you say has nothing to do with me. I just run my business and make money.” Once, I bought a watermelon and gave her 20 yuan, but she thought it was 50 yuan. I returned the extra change and told her, “I gave you 20 yuan.” She said, “Thank you! Thank you!” I replied, “I would like to pass your appreciation to the Master of Dafa! It is he who taught me to be a good person.” I told her the truth about Falun Gong and gave her truth-clarifying brochures. This time she didn’t resist and agreed to take a look at home. Her daughter and son withdrew from the Party.

When I met her again, I told her the facts and helped her withdraw from the CCP with her real name. Then I turned to her husband and helped him do the same. Later on, when I went to her to buy fruit, she always waived the change. I would say, “Remember Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good! Always consider others.” In the meantime, I returned the change to her. She took the money and smiled, “You are right! You are right.”

Finding a Good Person

I was asked to clean for a man in his 80s who lived alone. My job was to clean the 70-square-meter home, including the kitchen, the bathroom, and the bedroom. Because the man was so old, I only charged him half price. He insisted on giving me a big tip when I left. He said, “You worked a long time without lunch.” He also wanted to give me some tea as a gift.

I remembered Master’s teaching that we must always consider others. He was old and there was no one to take care of him. How difficult that was for him! I couldn’t take his money or gift. He said, “Where could I find a good person like you?” I told him, “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good. I am like this only because I practice Falun Gong.” I told him the facts about Falun Gong. He understood and used his real name to quit the CCP.

I told him to recite “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” He repeated, “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good, Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good...”

Dafa spreads widely. I hope people in China can understand the truth about Dafa as soon as possible. Don’t miss this unprecedented opportunity. Remember “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” The CCP is doomed. Quitting the CCP will ensure your safety. Choose a better future for yourself!
