“Tell Your Sister to Continue Practicing Falun Gong!”
(Minghui.org) The night before the wedding of one of my relatives, in 2001, family and friends gathered and chatted. Suddenly the topic switched to Falun Gong (also known as Falun Dafa), and everyone had his own opinions. I knew that it was my opportunity to clarify the truth.
One of the friends, Wang, said, “I don’t believe in anything, only my conscience. Do you get paid for believing (in Falun Gong)?” he asked.
“What is the standard that your conscience is based upon?” I asked him. “Falun Gong practitioners practice Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. They tell the truth, do things truthfully, and are truthful people. They are kind to everyone and ‘always maintain a heart of compassion and kindness.’ It doesn’t bother them when they are taken advantage of. In conflicts, they always check to see whether they were at fault, and take a step back because their Master says ‘As a practitioner, the first thing you should be able to do is to not fight back when you are beaten or sworn at.’ (Zhuan Falun)”
I continued, “You asked me if I got paid for practicing. Since when does making money have anything to do with belief? Whether you believe in anything or not, don't you have to work to get paid?”
Wang argued, “Falun Gong practitioners always mess up their lives. Those I knew were either detained or imprisoned. Their families were broken up.” I explained to him how the practitioners were well respected and lived contented lives before Jiang Zemin decided to persecute them in 1999. “Our Master teaches us to do our jobs well and that we should exceed people's expectations,” I said.
I told him that believing in Falun Gong also brings people good fortune. “If you really believe that Falun Dafa is good and asked Master Li Hongzhi to help you when you are in trouble, you are certainly going to be helped. The Chinese regime slanders Falun Gong to prevent you from knowing something so great, something that could save your life. Those who misunderstand Falun Gong are the ones who are truly in trouble in the persecution. I hope you will understand my words in the future,” I told him sincerely.
In Zhuan Falun it is written, “...one righteous mind can subdue one hundred evils.” Although Wang couldn't argue with the facts, the night after we parted, he told my brother that I was too much into Falun Gong. “Try to talk her out of it so she won't get into trouble,” Wang said to my brother.
Five years passed. One day my brother told me that he saw Wang a few days ago and he'd asked about me. Wang said to my brother, “You must tell your sister to continue practicing Falun Gong! Falun Gong saved my life. I witnessed a miracle. Falun Gong truly saves lives!”
Last year Wang hired two drivers to drive a tractor-trailer truck to ship his goods to the south. As they were driving, the driver suddenly lost control of the truck. The truck was about to crash and take everyone with it. Wang froze. One of the drivers happened to be a Falun Gong practitioner and he shouted, “Falun Dafa is good! Master Li Hongzhi, please help us!” Within seconds the truck safely came to a stop along the side of the road. The three of them got out of the truck, hugged one another and started crying.
After this experience, Wang now believes that Falun Dafa is good without a slightest doubt.
