Clarifying the Truth to People at My Workplace
(Minghui.org) I began to practice Falun Dafa in 2003. I am part of the cleaning crew at a large state-run corporation and was responsible for cleaning the area near the bathrooms behind the cafeteria kitchen.
One day, a supervisor asked if I could be in charge of cleaning the men’s restroom since two of the employees had quit. I felt uneasy because it was well-known that this restroom was the dirtiest place in the building. I then remembered Master Li (the founder of Falun Dafa) saying that going through hardships is a good thing, so I accepted the request.
The bathroom was not too big, but it was still a lot of work since I was doing the job of two people. I barely had time to take a break. Although I was the only person cleaning the restroom for 20 consecutive days, I did not complain. The group leader said, “You have been really busy lately. You should take a break. Don’t rush, and take your time.”
Several days later, the group leader came to inspect the bathroom. She was surprised by how clean it was. The previous cleaning person only sprayed air freshener to cover up the smell. The urinals also had drainage issues, leaving behind a pungent smell of urine.
She congratulated me on a job well done. The next day, the manager came to inspect my work and also went to ask the kitchen staff for their opinion. Everyone was impressed, and the manager then assigned someone else to rotate with me to clean the restroom.
At that time, I didn’t study the Fa as much, so I memorized poems from Hong Yin while working. I reminded myself that I was a practitioner and spreading the word about the goodness of Falun Dafa through my job. I used this opportunity to help many people withdraw from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its affiliated organizations.
Clarifying the Truth to Coworkers
I first talked to the group leader about Dafa and the persecution. She was supportive and said, “So you practice Falun Dafa. No wonder you are so kind.” When I asked her about quitting the Party, she declined out of fear.
I patiently clarified the truth to her and said, “No one will know except you, me, and the divine. Don’t worry. This is a great opportunity to ensure your safety when the CCP collapses.” She then agreed to withdraw from the Party.
I also talked to two other group leaders, and they both quit the CCP. With the exception of the cafeteria manager, everyone in my team had learned the facts about the persecution and withdrew from the Party.
As I was cleaning the women’s restroom one day, the cafeteria manager came up to me and said, “You do a really good job here. I can always tell who was here from the last shift. Don’t think that we aren’t aware. We can see your hard work.”
I thought it was a good chance to talk to her, so I said, “I am a Falun Dafa practitioner, and our Master teaches us to be good people wherever we go.”
She was surprised. I asked if she had heard about quitting the CCP, and she said yes. I said, “Falun Dafa is a cultivation practice of the Buddhist school and is beneficial to both your mind and body. Don’t believe the propaganda you hear on TV. The Communist Party will be held accountable for its crimes in the near future, and you will have a bright future if you are no longer a part of it. Do you want to be safe from calamities?” She then agreed to quit.
I thanked Master for strengthening my righteous thoughts, as I had wanted to clarify the facts to her for a long time. I later understood that people are waiting to be saved and that Master has everything planned out; we just need to execute it.
Afterward, I clarified the facts to 10 people from the kitchen and helped them quit the CCP. I found it easier to talk to female workers than male workers. I realized that in order to clarify the truth better, I needed to study the Fa more and improve myself more quickly.
Not Giving Up
Most of the chefs were young men. I once started a conversation with one of them, but he said Falun Dafa was superstition. Before I could say more, a group of chefs walked by, and I didn’t have the confidence to continue talking. I decided to send forth righteous thoughts instead.
One afternoon, I saw a chef sitting on the sofa with no one around. I thought that I should go talk to him as I hadn’t spoken to him before. I started with small talk before asking him if he had heard about quitting the Party.
He had no expression, so I continued, “Quitting the CCP will save your life. Are you a member of the Communist Party, the Communist Youth League, or the Young Pioneers? You only need to renounce the CCP in your heart. You don’t need to tell anyone, and you will be blessed.”
He answered, “I am not a Party member. But I am part of the Youth League and the Young Pioneers.” I told him I would help him quit with a pseudonym, but he said that he wanted to talk with his wife first.
I then further clarified the truth to him, and he eventually agreed to quit the communist youth organizations.
Before I left, I told him that Gods and Buddhas really do exist. I also explained that the CCP had killed more than 80 million Chinese people in various political movements since it came to power. I taught him to remember that “Falun Dafa is good and Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” He smiled and thanked me.
I would like to tell fellow practitioners who have difficulty talking to people face-to-face to be brave because Master is always beside us. As long as we approach people sincerely, Master will give us the wisdom to say what we need to. So many people are waiting to be saved, so we should go out and save them. This is every practitioner's destiny and vow. Let's cultivate ourselves well and follow Master back home.
Thank you, Master. Thank you, fellow practitioners.
