A Falun Dafa practitioner | Minghui
At the beginning of the pandemic in early 2020, I collected some email addresses in China and sent materials explaining to them the truth about Falun Dafa and the persecution in China. I soon contacted all the addresses, and could not find more. I decided to make phone calls to people in China.
Actually, I am good at talking. But when I made the first phone call I immediately hung up when the recipient said hello. I could not talk, even though I had written down what I would say.
I knew that I must persist. I set a bar for myself: make at least 10 phone calls each day and get rid of my fear. Gradually I made more and more calls, from 10 to 50 a day. Now, I can make almost 100 calls a day. Since last year I have convinced about 1000 people to quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) organizations.
CCP Follower Quits the Party
Another day a young man answered the phone. After I told him about quitting the Party, he started to play a CCP song. I said, “China existed for five thousand years, but the CCP has only existed for 70 years. Didn’t China exist before the CCP?” He said, “No.”
I replied, “China has a long history and a profound, rich culture. Chinese people are smart and talented. Did the CCP exist when Chinese culture reached its cultural peak?” He was quiet.
I then said, “The evil CCP invaded China when the country was weak. After it grabbed power, it started to ruin China and destroy the most educated people. There were so many political movements that brought disasters to China. It also lies to people that China would not exist without the Party. How evil is that? We should not be deceived by it.”
He stopped playing the CCP songs and asked, “Are you Chinese?” I felt that he had softened.
I said, “Of course. I am Chinese, not a follower of communism. Communism originated in Europe. It also usurped power in several European countries, but people saw how evil and violent it was, so they abandoned it many years ago.”
I said, “It only exists in a few countries now, such as China and North Korea. But when you compare North and South Korea, you see that because of communism North Korea is a totally different country. They are actually the same people—Koreans, with the same cultural background. It’s the same in China, which is now very different than the China that had a brilliant culture. These are the results of the CCP’s brainwashing and violent governing.”
I continued, “As a Chinese, you should wake up. Quit the CCP organizations you joined.” He immediately said “Okay!”
Person Who Doesn’t Believe in Anything Quits the Party
When I told a man about quitting the Party, he kept saying, “Life is short. There is nothing after one dies. I don’t care about the future or the next life. It’s good enough if I have money now. There is no God or Buddha. These are all lies. Are you calling me for my money?”
“I’m not asking for your money,” I said, “I only hope that you will quit the Party.” He said, “You haven’t asked for money yet, but you will soon. Otherwise, why do you waste your time calling me?”
I said, “Some people just want to help without asking for any payback. You don’t understand this because of the CCP’s decades of brainwashing. The Party doesn’t want you to believe that Buddhas or gods exist. You don’t even believe that some people just want to be good and seek no rewards. You were not born this way. It is the result of the CCP’s brainwashing. Your true self actually believes in spiritual things.”
“No, I just don’t believe this stuff. Where is Buddha or God?” he replied.
“Even if you don’t believe in God, don’t you believe in heavenly laws?” I asked.
“What heavenly laws? I see that good people die young, and bad people enjoy happy lives,” he replied. “One should just try his best to get money. Being a bad person and being able to get money in corrupt ways means you are a capable person.”
I never hung up on people, even if they cursed. I always tried to tell them the truth with compassion. So I decided to keep talking to him as long as he didn’t hang up. I talked to him for 20 minutes, but he kept repeating his views. I almost gave up.
Finally, I said, “If you don’t believe in Buddha or heavenly laws, it doesn’t matter. But you can only live for dozens of years, why do you want to be a bad person? Don’t you want to be a man with dignity? Don’t you want to be a person with conscience and justice? It doesn’t require you to do anything extra to quit the Party. All you need to do is to quit it in your heart. Why don’t you do it?”
I planned to hang up if he kept repeating the same words—that he did not believe any gods or heavenly laws. But surprisingly, he said, “Okay. I will quit the CCP.”
I was happy and said, “You made a right choice! I am very happy for you. See you.” He asked, “Will we meet in the future?” I replied, “We may never meet each other, but we have talked for so long. This is because we have the predestined relationship. I don’t know if we will meet in the future. But no matter what, one day you will feel happy for the choice you made today. Bless you.”
He said, “Thank you.” I could tell that he was touched. I felt it was the enlightened side of his being that was excited.
