A New Practitioner in China: Everyone Wants to Be Saved
(Minghui.org) Although I didn't start practicing Falun Dafa until May of 2011, I found that everyone badly wants to be rescued.
“Hurry up and tell me about Falun Gong”
After I had been practicing Falun Dafa for about six months, I went back to my family and told them about the Fa. Right away my mother said, “Wow, your skin looks so much better than last time.” I said, “Mom, it's because I practice Falun Gong.” I then explained how wonderful Falun Gong really is, and my mom and my niece also started practicing.
My niece and nephew lived with us. When I told my family the facts about Dafa that night, my nephew said to me, “Please – I want to know about it, too.” I said, “Know what?” He replied, “The things that you were explaining to them and my sister.” I knew right then and there that people are just waiting to be saved.
The next morning, my nephew, who hated getting up, rose early and suddenly appeared next to me. He asked me curiously, “What are you doing?” I said, “I was meditating.” He asked me how to meditate. I showed him the starting movements of the fifth exercise.
Afterwards, my niece whispered to me, “My brother is too shy to ask you to teach him how to do the exercises. He asked me to ask you to show him.” And just like that, my entire family started to cultivate.
“I'd better quit the CCP”
There was a person who helped to install curtains in my brother's house. He graduated from college, so he was intelligent and had a wide range of knowledge. When we talked, I mentioned prehistoric culture, divinely-inspired culture, the problematic theory of evolution, democratic societies outside of China, and the Chinese Communist Party (CCP)'s dictatorship inside China. I also talked about the Cultural Revolution and the persecution of Falun Gong. He said, “If Falun Gong hadn't organized and made trouble at Zhongnanhai (the CCP's headquarters compound), then the persecution never would've happened.”
I knew that he had listened to the lies, so I explained to him how Falun Gong didn't have an organization, nor did we go and make trouble. We were just exercising our rights as citizens. I explained how we petitioned peacefully on April 25, 1999, and about the Tiananmen Square self-immolation hoax. After he heard my explanations, he said, “Oh, so that was what happened.”
Finally, I talked about the well-known rock formation that had the characters "Death to the CCP" mysteriously carved into it and about the tide of people withdrawing from the Party. Before I even suggested it, he said, “I'd better quit the CCP.”
When we agreed that he would quit using an alias, his work was finished. As a matter of fact, he was there because he needed to be saved. Before he left, I wrote, “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” on a piece of paper and told him to remember these words. He was extremely happy and said, “When you have the time, please come into my shop and tell me more about Falun Gong.”
“I want to quit, too!”
When I was at my father's house, I bumped into an old friend of mine. We were happy that we got the chance to see each other again. I found out that he and his wife were leaving the next day to find migrant work. I thought that I had to go save them. When I went to his house that afternoon, he wasn't there. I asked around and finally found them in the fields.
He asked, “How's your mother doing?” I replied, “She is doing quite well. Ever since she started practicing Falun Gong last year, she hasn't been sick. Before she practiced, she had to take medicine every day. She's even started gardening.” He asked, “Is Falun Gong really that great? Didn't they say that if you practice Falun Gong, you'll go mad and commit suicide?” I laughed and answered, “You must be getting your information from the television or newspapers. You actually believed them? Look at me: I've practiced Falun Gong for almost two years. Do I look like I would commit suicide?”
I looked at him calmly, and he smiled back at me. I then explained how the Tiananmen Square self-immolation was staged and how the CCP persecutes Falun Gong practitioners. I said that the CCP would collapse one day and reminded him that good is rewarded while evil is punished. He said, “If you're against the CCP, they'll arrest you.” I firmly stated, “One good will suppress a hundred evils.” He had no reply. I also told him and his wife about the prophesied catastrophe facing mankind and that the only way to guarantee one's safety was to quit the CCP. They both agreed.
When I was thinking of aliases for them, an urgent voice called out, “I want to quit, too!” I looked back and saw a girl running toward us. When I was clarifying the truth, she had been nearby listening attentively. She said, “If I'd known all this, I never would've joined the Youth League. Could you also help my sister quit?” I said, “Okay, but you must tell your sister about the things I've told you.”
I also wrote “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” on a piece of paper and gave it to them. I told them that reciting it sincerely would bring them blessings. Then, the girl exclaimed, “I just said the words out loud, and I suddenly felt refreshed and cool. This is wonderful!” I said, “Yes, it's true! Dafa is miraculous!”
Because of my heavy human attachments, I've missed many predestined people. Thinking back, it pains me. Writing this down, I'm reminding myself to let go of self, remove human attachments, and save people. I can't let down the sentient beings awaiting Dafa. I hope that more people can soon understand the truth about Dafa and be saved.
