(Minghui.org) After Master Li’s article “How Humankind Came To Be” was published on the Minghui website, I decided to memorize it. Master gave me wisdom and broadened my mind—I was able to eliminate many of my attachments and weaken the influence of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) culture inside of me.

Letting Go of My Competitive Mentality

I used to be very competitive and often argued with other people. Where I work, the chef on duty serves us our meals. One day at lunch, the chef was serving everyone with a big smile on his face—until he got to me. Then he suddenly turned away and gave me nothing. Feeling humiliated, I began to recite Master’s article in my mind,

“Their goal was to test the lives here and see whether they were worthy of salvation, and give them a chance to, in the process, work off their sins and karma while going through difficult things. And all of this was done so that people could be saved and gain deliverance back to heaven.” (“How Humankind Came To Be”)

Instead of resenting him, I thanked him from the bottom of my heart for creating this opportunity for me to improve and work off my karma.

Master eliminated my attachment to competitiveness, and in its place came compassion and kindness. This chef and I are now good friends, and he has quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations.

Clarifying the Facts to Relatives

Memorizing Master’s new article also gives me the courage to clarify the facts about Dafa to my relatives.

I have a cousin in Beijing who works in a courthouse. Having been misled by the CCP’s slander of Dafa, she refused to listen to me whenever I brought up the topic in the past.

The Qingming Festival in early April is the day Chinese commemorate their ancestors. Before the festival this year, I called my cousin and told her that I was going to Beijing to visit my parents’ graves. I knew I had to take this opportunity to help my relatives to understand the facts of Dafa.

My cousin brought our other Beijing relatives and my sister-in-law to our gathering. Everyone was excited to see each other, and we began to talk about how good deeds could help one receive blessings but bad actions would be punished. Then I showed everyone Master’s new article “How Humankind Came To Be.” My cousin respectfully read aloud:

“When a person dies it is just a matter of his physical body declining and breaking down, while his true soul (which is who he really is, and which does not die with the passing of his physical body) will continue on in a next life, being reborn.” (“How Humankind Came To Be”)

My sister-in-law took a picture of the entire article with her phone and said that she would read it when she got home. The time we spent together was short. I told everyone to sincerely recite “Falun Dafa is good” and “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” and said it would bring them blessings in the face of disaster. They all promised that they would. Looking at me with a very solemn expression, my cousin said, “Okay, I will remember!”

No matter how many times I recite Master’s new article, I feel a wave of sorrow from afar melting in my heart, as if someone is calling from a distant place. I am grateful for Master’s salvation, and I am grateful to Master for revealing these heavenly secrets to sentient beings!
