(Minghui.org) Some time ago, I became depressed about the issue of saving sentient beings. The reason was that many people were again misled by the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) propaganda after they had already been aware of the truth about Falun Dafa and the persecution. I was affected by the shift and felt that people were too difficult to save.

When studying the Fa this morning, I read:

“Lives at any of the various planes of particles perceive the particles of the next larger plane to be planets in their skies, and this is true at each and every plane.” ("On Dafa," Zhuan Falun)

In an instant, my heart was so touched I was almost in tears. Of course, the Fa has greater and deeper connotations. At my current level, I enlightened to the fact that, although we practitioners live among ordinary people, our mental realm is much higher than theirs and our capacity is much greater than theirs. Then, aren’t we as Dafa practitioners “planets” in their sky? They are all looking up at us with their understanding side.

It is indeed that only Dafa practitioners can bring light to sentient beings in the dark and illuminate their way to the future. In this case, since the position of Dafa practitioners is so high, why should I care about some of their manifestations in this process? I realized that I should just save them! The bad substances in my heart suddenly fell apart and dispersed. As my righteous thoughts came to the fore, I prepared the informational materials and left the house.

Returning to Dafa

I started practicing Falun Dafa in the spring of 1999. Within just a few months, the CCP began to persecute Dafa. Due to various human attachments, I stopped practicing. I was in my 20s.

At the beginning of 2007, with a hint from Master, I returned to Dafa cultivation and decided to be a true disciple. I keep my mission in mind and have be involved in life-saving projects during the past 10 years of my cultivation. Whenever I encountered difficulties or had trouble with my character (which affected saving people), I always overcame these difficulties with the insight from Dafa. After improving my character, I then sent righteous thoughts. For many years I have been saving people. When I recall the past in this regard, I feel that Master has always been by my side.

Enlightened by the Fa

A few years ago, another practitioner in my family gave a truth-clarification DVD to a security guard, who reported him to the authorities, and my family member was arrested. That made me hate the security guard. I thought he was so ignorant that he could not tell good from bad and even persecuted the practitioner who wanted to save him. I no longer wanted to clarify the truth to people face to face.

Master said:

“Because his xinxing is at the everyday people’s level and his supernormal abilities come through pursuit, he might commit every sort of wrongdoing.” (Lecture Two, Zhuan Falun)

I suddenly realized: “Security guards are ordinary people. Of course ordinary people might do bad things. Why do I behave like an ordinary person?” My hatred for the security guard disappeared instantly. From then on, I tried my best to clarify the truth to people.

For some time when I went out to distribute truth-clarification materials, I was very frightened and couldn’t let go of the attachment. One day, before I went out, I calmed down and studied the Fa first.

Master said:

“... cultivators who chant incantations can receive protection from higher beings;” (“The Teachings in Buddhism are the Weakest and Tiniest Portion of the Buddha Fa,” Essentials For Further Advancement)

Since then, I have been calm when I distribute materials, I keep sending righteous thoughts and repeat “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!”

Distributing Dafa Materials

I walked a lot every day to distribute materials. Sometimes my heel hurt and my body ached. One day I wanted to take a break and not go out, thinking that I would study the Fa that day.

Master said:

“Shakyamuni looked at him and said, “What I asked you to do was to clean the bathtub.” The disciple suddenly understood, and he went and cleaned the bathtub right away.” (Lecture Seven, Zhuan Falun)

I enlightened and tears came to my eyes. A sentence flashed in my mind: “What I ask you to do is to save people!” I thought, “Yes, I will do what Master asks me to do. Why do I have so many excuses, such as my heel hurts and I ache all over? It is just like Shakyamuni’s disciple—when his master told him to clean the bathtub, he should have just cleaned it. Why did he question his teacher twice?” Upon realizing this, I immediately went out to distribute truth-clarification materials.


When I went to work a few years ago, my coworkers earned more by producing more than the quota. But I just wanted to meet the basic quota so that I could go home earlier and do things to save sentient beings. Later, I got another job and worked a little faster.

When my supervisor calculated my output, he said that I was over quota and would earn 100 yuan more. I was very happy, thinking that I would not leave early to distribute truth-clarification materials this month, that I would work a little longer each day and make more than 200 yuan by the end of the month.

When I got home that night, I discovered that my water pipe had broken. To get it fixed, I had to buy materials, which cost me over 100 yuan in addition to the cost of labor. And my clothes were soaked. I didn’t understand what was going on. Before going to bed, I studied the Fa.

Master said:

“One righteous mind can subdue one hundred evils. If you do not pursue anything, no one will dare to bother you. If you develop an evil thought or go after something bad, they will come to give you a hand, and you will be following a demonic cultivation way. This problem can occur.” (Lecture Five, Zhuan Falun)

I was shocked: “I didn’t want to save people so I could make more money. Wasn’t this an evil thought? No wonder the water pipe broke.” Master woke me up with a heavy hammer: “Let go of the attachment to profit.” The next day, I decided to no longer exceed the quota no matter what others said. I just finished the job assigned to me. After that, I left early and went out to save people.

Righteous Thoughts

A practitioner in my family was arrested. Fellow practitioners asked me to go to the police substation to clarify the truth. I knew that I should go, but I thought, “If I do, I will be asked to show my ID or they won’t let me in.” I didn’t know what to do as I was afraid of being exposed. But if I didn’t go, there was no one else in my family who would. What should I do?

Master said: “If you can commit your mind, no difficulties can stop you. I would say that there’s not a problem.” (Lecture Four, Zhuan Falun)

My righteous thoughts suddenly arose and I thought: “I have not let go of life and death.” After finding the cause of my problem, I jumped out of bed and put my ID into my bag, thinking, “I can go to the police substation alone, and other practitioners can send forth righteous thoughts outside.”

At the police substation I looked for the director to give him my ID and phone number so he could contact me if needed. I told him not to contact my parents anymore as they were old and ill. But the director refused to take my phone number. I then clarified the truth to him. I told him how my family had changed for the better after practicing Dafa, and the persecution they had suffered in prison. He expressed his sympathy.

Just after the 2020 New Year, the coronavirus epidemic broke out. I thought, “As a Dafa practitioner, I must save people and give them hope.” I decided to distribute stickers since other practitioners had been distributing so many truth-clarifying materials, and I would remind people again, telling them, “At this critical time, you should recite Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!"

After distributing stickers for a few days, I started to feel concerned: Because of the epidemic, police cars patrolled frequently, and community personnel were busy going back and forth. There were few pedestrians out, and many people stayed home, looking out of their windows. I was under great pressure and was worried and stressed out. I was afraid that I would be noticed coming from and going to different communities.

Later, something Master said came into my mind:

“You, therefore, should not concern yourself with this too much, as being overly concerned is also an attachment.” (Lecture Six, Zhuan Falun)

This sentence helped me let go of all my worries, and I tried my best to distribute as many stickers as I could—more than 1,000 of them.
