(Minghui.org) Mother and I were out telling people about Falun Gong and debunking the slanderous propaganda put out by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) when we ran into an elderly woman walking swiftly. She said she was 88 years old, had never been to school, and couldn’t read.
We chatted about how to remain safe in the pandemic. I said, “Traditional Chinese culture believes that good is rewarded and evil incurs punishment. Even modern science acknowledges the relation between mind and body. In fact, there are many cases of people being blessed by keeping in mind ‘Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.’”
When Mother explained that these three words are the principles of Falun Dafa, the woman’s eyes lit up. “Oh, I know Falun Dafa—it teaches one to be a good person,” she said. “Some people said Falun Dafa is no good and I often argued with them because it is indeed great!”
I told her the persecution started because Falun Dafa promotes traditional values and the common good, which contradicts the CCP’s core principles of brutality and lies. She said that over the decades she had witnessed how the CCP suppressed religious freedom, and destroyed our cultural heritage during the Cultural Revolution.
We continued talking for a while, and as we were ready to leave, the woman came up closer to us and whispered, “Society is bound to change.”
“What?” I asked in surprise.
“Society will change,” she repeated.
“Are you saying the CCP is over?” Mother asked.
“Yes,” the woman nodded and continued, “The pandemic is not accidental. In fact, plagues like this have happened many times in history during dynasty transitions,” she added.
The woman then asked more about Falun Dafa, for example, how to learn it and whether it has churches or temples. I told her that Falun Dafa is open to people from all walks of life and that there are no churches or temples. But practitioners take the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance to heart and apply them in their daily lives.
She nodded in agreement. She also said she would keep in mind “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good,” because these words could assure her safety.
