(Minghui.org) When the pandemic broke out again in December 2022, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) gave up its zero COVID policy, and the pandemic raged across the country. I worked in the social security bureau, which provides customer service for the deposits and withdrawals of social security all over the country. We were open for business as usual during the pandemic.
When I started my job, I worked on the ground floor, maintaining customers’ orders. I was conscientious and responsible and sometimes worked late in order to cooperate with other coworkers. Our team leader complimented me on my work and later moved me to the lobby on the third floor, where I was responsible for service consultations, copying documents, and so on.
I only had an elementary school education, but Master Li opened up my wisdom after I started practicing Falun Dafa, so I learned how to operate the self-service copy machines by myself.
The Pandemic Invades Our Workplace
Seeing the ravaging effects of the pandemic, I was really anxious for people whose lives were in great danger. COVID claimed the leaders and my coworkers where I worked one after the other. But I kept my mission in mind and gave the leaders USB flash drives with Dafa information so they could understand the truth and be safe by quitting the CCP. However, most of them waved their hands or shook their heads, meaning they were not interested.
Only Wang Mei, who’d quit the Party, and I came to work as usual. A few other coworkers in other departments took turns coming into work. Xiao Li from logistics, who came to work feeling sick, exclaimed that we were “impervious to a hundred poisons.” The mass coughing in the lobby could be heard all over. Some of the employees coughed so much that they couldn’t even answer the phone. We then heard that a large number of people died in different regions, and that the cremation facilities were overflowing. Everyone panicked.
“Sincerely Recite the Auspicious Phrases!”
The people who worked at the service counter were afraid of having close contact with customers, so they purposely procrastinated and interacted with fewer people. To reduce their stress, I took the initiative to approach customers and tell them that some services could be handled online. If I could get close and talk to them, I would say, “Sincerely recite the auspicious phrases ‘Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good’ to keep you safe.” I was busy running around the service hall every day and didn’t shy away from contact with anyone.
I developed symptoms of a bitter taste in my mouth, lack of appetite, and weakness in my limbs. I was immediately alert and negated that incorrect state. Ordinary people’s symptoms of the pandemic had nothing to do with me! I studied the Fa as usual, visited the Minghui website, got up early every morning to do the exercises, and silently recited the auspicious phrases.
When the leaders and my coworkers began returning to work, they were surprised to see that I was not infected with the virus, even though I was in contact with so many people. One coworker gave me a thumbs up and said, “You are really amazing!”
“It’s not that I’m amazing,” I replied. “It’s because I believe in Dafa and silently recite the auspicious phrases to keep me safe.” She nodded in agreement.
Customers would sometimes come to me and ask, “Were you infected?” When I told them I wasn’t, they asked, “Is there a secret to keeping the virus away?”
I replied, “Believe in Dafa and sincerely recite the auspicious phrases to avoid catastrophes.”
Family Members Praise Master
During the pandemic last year, apart from my parents and sister-in-law, who is a Dafa practitioner, everyone else in my family was infected. It took two of my sisters-in-law more than three weeks to recover.
During the Chinese New Year holiday, I invited my two older brothers and their wives to my home for dinner. As soon as the food was served, my eldest brother said to everyone at the table, “Falun Dafa is really powerful, and Dafa’s Master is really great. You have to admit that. Look at her [referring to me]. She has been fine even though she’s been in contact with so many people. You have to believe it!”
His wife interjected, “Okay, we understand now! We’ll recite the phrases ‘Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good’ more in the future.”
I am lucky to practice Falun Dafa, and Master guides me to find my way amid the the confusion and chaos. I went from being selfish and resentful to being calm and thinking of others first by using Dafa’s standards to measure my every thought, word, and action. It is really an incomparable cultivation process, which everyone admires.
No matter how long the road of cultivation is, I must cherish the time that Master has extended for us with great endurance, do the three things well, and validate the Fa.
Thank you, Master! Heshi!
