(Minghui.org) After we finished reading the Fa at a recent group study session, I said to a woman practitioner next to me, “Minghui is calling for papers. It is for the Online China Fahui. Please write an article.”
She said, “I have not cultivated well, and I don’t write well.” I said, “You sent letters telling people about Falun Dafa and about the pandemic to save them. You can share that experience.”
She replied, “Is that worth writing about? As a Dafa practitioner, if I don’t help save lives, why have I come to this world?"
Her words struck me and I burst into tears. That plain and simple statement showed how assimilated she was to the Fa.
She was not very educated, so she told me what she did to save lives during the pandemic, and I organized her narration into the following article.
When COVID-19 broke out at the beginning of 2020, we were all forced to stay home for over a month. When the lockdown was lifted, I immediately got some brochures from fellow practitioners.
I wept as I read the brochures for two and a half hours. I thought, “This epidemic is serious. The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has promoted atheism and made people not believe in gods.
“People's morals have degenerated and this has led to the epidemic. Many people are in danger, so we must go out to save lives!”
To clarify the truth about Falun Dafa and the pandemic, I mostly spoke to people in person at first because I had no brochures. But people were afraid of the virus and did not like anyone getting close to them.
They would say, “Stay away from me, stay away.” I told them, “I am talking to you for your safety. Please remember ‘Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!’
“Please recite that when you encounter difficulties!” They all said, “Yes, yes.”
I handed them a brochure if I had any with me, otherwise, I could only try to talk to them. We got more brochures later, so I went to the city to hand them out.
I could only hand them out on the streets because the residential communities were still under strict control. I walked down all the streets I could in the city, then went to my hometown to hand out brochures. I walked through all the streets in the township as well.
One day, I had just filled up my bag with brochures and was about to head out when someone came to visit.
I tried to go out the next day, but a fellow practitioner came to visit me. That happened for three days in a row and I did not go out at all.
I thought, “Why? Did Master stop me from going out?” I then realized, “How many people can I reach just by myself? If all of us practitioners could go, if all of us could hold strong righteous thoughts, and if all of us could understand the urgency of saving lives, we would be able to save more people.”
I came to understand that Master was giving me a hint. I then bought some memory cards and made multiple copies with practitioners’ recorded cultivation stories.
I contacted my fellow practitioners, gave them the cards, and asked them to listen to the audio; I hoped this would help them quickly improve their xinxing.
I also videoed some practitioners’ talking about Falun Dafa and the pandemic, and asked our fellow practitioners to watch them, I hoped the videos would help them learn to talk to people about the pandemic and about Dafa.
After our fellow practitioners listened to the audio and watched the videos, I shared my thoughts with them about how we must go out to save lives. Their xinxing improved and they all wanted to join the effort, so they asked me for brochures.
I talked to the practitioners in another area and asked for brochures. After we got them, we all went out to save lives.
The effort to save lives became much more powerful. I then bought many more memory cards and copied them with the audio and video telling the truth about Falun Dafa. I gave the memory cards to people I knew.
I told them, “After you listen and watch, please pass them to your friends and family. Or you can return them to me. Please don’t destroy them.”
I also bought a dozen video players and lent them to people I knew. When I estimated they would have likely finished watching, I retreived the players and passed them to other people I knew.
People have higher requirements nowadays and they don’t like to pay attention to information they've heard before. I thus kept finding new information and copied it to the memory cards. I previewed the contents I found and grouped them according to people’s different social statuses. The results were good.
For example, a stubborn man who has been very resistant to learning about Falun Dafa for many years changed his attitude about Dafa after watching a truth-clarification video.
Nowadays most people have come from high levels, and they came for the Fa. People are now in a dangerous situation because of the pandemic.
We must follow Master’s teaching and do our best to save them. All I did was simply try my best to save lives. I felt that was also assisting Master in the Fa-rectification.
