(Minghui.org) A friend of mine suggested that I should take a job as a postpartum caregiver about 10 years ago. I had never thought about being one because I didn’t know how to take care of infants or adults. But on second thought, I realized that nothing is coincidental in cultivation and that perhaps being a postpartum caregiver was part of my cultivation path. I accepted the suggestion and started to train as a caregiver. My expertise in cooking and running a restaurant gave me an advantage during the training process.
I was able to pass the caregiver training fairly quickly, and I knew Master Li (Falun Dafa’s founder) had unlocked my wisdom. I began working as a postpartum caregiver.
Postpartum caregivers make high salaries, but they need be very responsible and work long hours. People who can afford to hire them are often in the middle to upper social classes. I had always kept awakening sentient beings as my priority, so I knew I needed to take advantage of these opportunities to awaken sentient beings who have a predestined relationship with me.
I’ve helped many families over the past few years, and they have benefitted physically and mentally. I would like to share some of my experiences.
It was arranged to work for a university chancellor’s family whose daughter-in-law had just given birth. I noticed that the chancellor carried strong Party culture and was very dominant at home. He would demand his family learn Chinese poetry and write self-reflection statements. His wife was more easy-going and compassionate. She was a dean at the same university. Their son worked in the judicial system, and the daughter-in-law was a public official.
I was humble and worked hard while I was employed by them. I intricately prepared each dish and learned the pregnant daughter-in-law’s food preferences.
I had a few cooking techniques to make the food tastier. For example, I’d drizzle soy sauce into the hot cooking oil so the food came out with more flavor. This way pregnant mothers tend to have more of an appetite. I’d also use spinach juice, dragon fruit juice or egg yolks to make green, purple, or yellow steamed buns. The dishes were colorful, aromatic, and tasty when served on the table. The daughter-in-law exclaimed in admiration, “Auntie, I feel like an emperor!”
I never repeated my dishes. The meals that I cooked were healthy, colorful and balanced between meat and vegetables. I set high standards for myself and treated my customers the way that I wanted to be treated. Each meal consisted of a meat dish, a vegetable dish, a soup, millet porridge, and options of either colorful steamed buns, noodles, dumplings, or wontons.
The chancellor’s wife would watch me constantly when I was doing my chores in the kitchen or the laundry. I understood that she wanted to make sure I was doing my job properly.
Whether she was watching over me or not, I’d also do my job wholeheartedly because I was a Falun Dafa practitioner. I was always cheerful while doing my chores around the house. She gradually dismissed the idea of watching over me.
My relationship with the family improved as time passed. I’d often joke around with the chancellor and would say, “Congratulations on becoming a grandfather. There’s the saying that goes ‘home is one’s warm haven,’ but haven’t you made everyone nervous when you’ve demanded they recite Chinese poems and write self-reflections?” The chancellor smiled and said, “I won’t make them write self-reflections anymore.”
The daughter-in-law had a cesarean section and was complaining to me about how she felt pain at the incision site. I told her that after I cultivated Falun Dafa, the arthritis pain that had burdened me for 16 years disappeared. I am now a healthy person and can do all the household chores. I told her, “Falun Dafa has spread all over the world. People from all over the world support and respect Falun Dafa. The Tiananmen self-immolation was a hoax and was created to slander Falun Dafa. The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) will be punished by heaven. If you are a part of the CCP, you will be condemned as well. Why don’t you withdraw from the CCP and its affiliated organizations to stay safe? Let’s not be affiliated with the Party.” She agreed to withdraw from the Party. I told her to sincerely recite “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” to alleviate her pain. She nodded in agreement.
I got along quite well with the chancellor’s wife and we had many topics to chat about. She was really satisfied with my work. Our conversations naturally led to Falun Dafa. In reality, what I did on a daily basis around the house validated my actions as a Falun Dafa practitioner, so naturally, the CCP’s lies and deceit were brought to light.
I started to chat with the chancellor about Falun Dafa on my last day of work. I asked, “Have you heard about withdrawing from the CCP and its affiliated organizations”
He said, “I heard about it a long time ago when I attended a wedding.”
I asked again, “Did you withdraw from the CCP and its affiliated organizations?”
He replied, “No.”
I said, “Perhaps you did not get a chance to really understand the true nature of the CCP.”
I told him about the mystical “Hidden Character Stone” with clearly formed Chinese characters “The Chinese Communist Party Will Perish” in Guizhou Province, China. I said, “The collapse of the Soviet Union happened in one night. You once vowed to give your life to the CCP. When heaven decides to disintegrate it, you will be doomed as well.”
I said, “You are financially stable and have your reputation at work. All you need is safety. Only by quitting the CCP and its youth organizations will you truly be safe.” After listening to my words, the chancellor said without hesitation, “Please help me withdraw from the Party!” His wife also nodded in agreement. I helped both of them quit the Party with pseudonyms and they were happy.
The chancellor then said, “I will treat you to dinner today. Please don’t leave yet. Would you be able to make us some lunch first? The chancellor invited his mother-in-law and her son over for lunch. I knew that Master had arranged for these two predestined sentient beings to come. I said to the chancellor’s mother-in-law, “Today is my last day of work. I have some heartfelt messages to tell you and I will regret it if I don’t say anything. Did you know about quitting the CCP and its youth organizations to stay safe? There are many natural and man-made disasters and the CCP will be punished by heaven for persecuting Falun Dafa. If you are a part of the Party and the communist regime, you will be condemned by heaven as well.”
The chancellor’s mother-in-law withdrew from the CCP and it youth organizations because I had clarified the truth to her multiple times in the past. However, it was my first time meeting her son and he did not quit the Party during lunch. The chancellor’s mother-in-law arranged for her son to take me home and I was grateful to Master for compassionately arranging this opportunity. I managed to help her son quit the Party and said, “Young man, there are many disasters happening in China. These are all due to the CCP’s evil deeds. You shouldn’t be part of it by being in the Party.” Her son said, “OK, auntie, please help me withdraw from the Party!”
I am truly grateful to Master for being able to save this whole family.
I worked as a postpartum caregiver at a police department director’s house one time. His daughter-in-law had a cesarean section and gave birth to a baby girl. It was not until later that I realized that the infant had heart problems and that the whole family was upset about it. I said to myself, “I have to save this family.” Had I not been a caregiver, it would have been impossible for me to enter their house since there were security guards in three different places.
The first thing I did every morning after arriving at his house was to smile and talk to the infant. I would use baby wipes to wipe her face and gently clean her body. Then I would use a cotton swab to clean her nose, eyes, and ears. While talking to the infant, I would also chat with the baby’s mother about parenting.
If no one was around, I would recite “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” to the baby and she would smile at me. I was waiting for the right moment to clarify the truth to the police department director’s family.
The baby’s mother was depressed because of the baby’s heart condition. I started to chat with her and said, “Illnesses aren’t scary. What’s scarier is not believing in gods and Buddhas. I am a Falun Dafa practitioner. Whenever I encounter tribulations, I sincerely recite “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.”
I recited the following section of Master’s lecture to her.
“Zhen Shan Ren—three sacred words have boundless Fa powersFalun Dafa is good—true thoughts alter all disasters”(“The Source of All Fa,” Hong Yin IV)
I said, “If you truly believe in Dafa, your child’s illness will disappear.” The mother stated, “I will believe in Dafa for the sake of my child.” I started to tell her about withdrawing from the CCP and its youth organizations, the truth about Falun Dafa, and the evil nature of the CCP.
I said, “The CCP is wicked to the core and heaven will disintegrate it. You should not be dragged into this punishment. I will help you quit the Party so you can have a better future.” She listened to me and withdrew from the CCP’s youth organizations.
She wanted me to recite “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” to the infant, but I said, “It is best that you recite it for your child. I will go clarify the truth to your father-in-law.” The child’s mother said, “He does not believe in anything. You shouldn’t go.” I negated her notions and thought to myself, “I have to save the police department director.”
The police department director’s wife often complained about discomfort in her body. I took this as an opportunity to clarify the truth. I told her that my 16-year-long arthritis pain disappeared after cultivating Falun Dafa. She saw that Falun Dafa is a practice that teaches people to become better through witnessing my actions while I was at her house. She also learned the benefits of Falun Dafa for the mind and body. She agreed to recite “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” and withdrew from the CCP and its youth organizations.
The director’s mother-in-law became sick and had to be hospitalized while I was working at his house. After learning about it, I prepared two sets of meals, one for the baby’s mother and one for the elderly woman. I prepared softer food, such as, egg noodles, dumplings, bone broth, and porridges, for the elderly woman. I prepared different types of soft food every day and served her meals daily with care.
The 80-year-old lady was so touched that she wrote a letter to praise my selfless actions to my agency. My agency awarded me “top caregiver” and also raised my salary. I knew this was all possible because I had Dafa’s guidance along the way.
My home care service in the director’s home was coming to an end. I started to become anxious because I had yet to clarify the truth to him. Perhaps Master saw my heart to awaken sentient beings and arranged for the director to take me home after his driver could not make it. I was grateful to compassionate Master for arranging this opportunity. I clarified the truth to the director on my way home and asked if he’d like to withdraw from the CCP and its youth organizations. He only smiled and said nothing.
I asked, “What are your thoughts about Falun Dafa?” He replied, “I only listen to the commands given by my superiors.”
I replied, “You are ruining yourself by listening to your superiors. The CCP is using you as a scapegoat. It is just like that saying, ‘Killing the donkey once the millstone is no longer needed.’ Those who pleased the CCP and their superiors during the Cultural Revolution were either removed from their positions, committed suicide or were secretly executed.”
I began telling him about how Falun Dafa is the universal law and persuaded him not to follow the CCP into destruction and suffer disasters. He only smiled and did not say anything.
I was regretful for not being able to save the director this time.
The director’s daughter-in-law gave birth to another child a few years later. I was invited to work at his house again. Deep down inside, I felt that I would be able to save him.
I saw a little girl about five or six years old jumping up and down when I entered their house. The little girl said sweetly, “Grandmother!” This was the infant that had heart problems a few years ago. She looked very healthy and all her heart problems seemed to have disappeared. I chatted with the director’s wife and said, “You should have the director withdraw from the CCP and its youth organizations. It would be dangerous for him if he does not quit the CCP because heaven will disintegrate it.
She replied, “Let me try to talk to him.”
When I arrived at the house the second day, the director’s wife handed me a piece of paper. “He agreed to quit the Party. This is the pseudonym that he came up with.” I felt that my heart had lightened and thanked Master for arranging a second chance for me to save him.
I am grateful to Master for teaching me to be a better person with high moral standards. In this society where moral standards are declining, I am able to uphold and abide by the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. I have taken fame and fortune lightly and have managed to resist the mighty current that’s dragging the world down. I am grateful to be able to use my skills and abilities to save more families and sentient beings.
