Master requires us Dafa disciples cultivating during the Fa-rectification period to do three things well: study the Fa and do the exercises, send forth righteous thoughts, and clarify the truth to save sentient beings. These three things I have kept in mind and put into action. Now I would like to share some of my experiences while putting the three things into action.
Firm righteous thoughts created a miracle
Since January we started frequently sending forth righteous for Shen Yun’s European tour. In addition to the four global righteous thoughts time slots every day, we started sending forth righteous thoughts every hour on the hour. Because many practitioners need to go to work, we devised a rota. I took the time slots at 4am and 5am, and another eight times a day from 10 am to 5 pm. I made separate arrangements to study the Fa and do the exercises. There are 45 minutes between sending forth righteous at 4 am and 5 am. I generally do the first and second sets of exercises. In the morning of the 1st of March this year, I finished the first two sets of exercises in the morning and continued with the remaining two sets of exercises after 2 pm’s righteous thoughts. As I was doing the third exercise the second time (with my eyes closed), a transparent and bright light shone in front of my eyes, which was wonderful and lasted for about a minute or so. I felt very comfortable and realized that it was Master encouraging me for having done well and asking me to do even better and be more diligent.
Following the principles of "Truthfulness, Compassion, Tolerance", and clarifying the truth to save sentient beings out of compassion
I am responsible for distributing two Chinese newspaper titles, The Epoch Times and Kan Zhong Guo, at the Chinese Mall in Warsaw. There are six halls in the Chinese Mall with several hundred shops run by Chinese people. Every week I distribute the paper to each shop according to their requirements, ensuring fellow countrymen get to read the paper in time. Treating them as friends and family, I am always kind to them and think of them first. We come together because of a predestined relationship. As Dafa is spreading, we must tell everyone in the world about Dafa.
I use a variety of methods to communicate with them, letting them know about Falun Gong and the truth, so as to save them. For example I often say: "Falun Dafa is good! Quit the CCP to guarantee your safety!" to inspire their awakening. For those who do not know much about the practice, I explain in detail to make them see the truth and the significance of quitting the CCP. As a result, many youngsters have said that Falun Dafa is good, and offered to quit the CCP. I showed them how to quit the party at the Epoch Times website, and asked them to always remember, "Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness, Compassion and Tolerance are good!" They were moved.
Once I was giving out newspapers on the ground floor of Hall One. The weight of the newspapers made the cart too heavy to pull. I left the cart in front of Stall No. 21 and went to No. 27 and 28 to give them their weekly copy of the paper. Another girl said to me: "Give me a copy." I said: "I did not drag the cart here because it’s too heavy. It’s down there. Please come along with me to take one." I waited a while in front of No. 21 without seeing her follow. I realized she was a predestined person waiting to be saved! How tough it is to save a person! I immediately went over with a copy of the paper. She was sitting there behind the desk waiting for me!
There were many incidents like this. I did not argue with anyone. Regardless of whether they were newly opened stalls or had previously refused the paper, I would ask them in a peaceful manner whether they would like to read the paper. If they did, I would invariably deliver one to them, not leaving behind any predestined person. When I delivered the newspaper to each hall, they would say: “You have worked hard!” I said: “So that everyone gets to read the paper, it does not matter that I work hard. I am very pleased as long as you get to read the paper." Nowadays, the vast majority of Chinese in the mall read the Epoch Times and Kan Zhong Guo. Many praised the newspaper, saying it’s well written, factual and professional, which is not seen in Mainland China.
Another time when I gave out the paper on the ground floor of Hall One, I said: "Falun Dafa is good." When I turned to leave, the boss's teenage daughter shouted something in favour of the CCP. I did not reply and made the newspaper rounds as usual. Master asked us to look inward whenever there is a problem. From this we can see how deeply the evil party has poisoned youths. Some people cannot tell good from bad, or right from wrong. I decided not to let her sink deeper and deeper and felt that I ought to save her. During the next delivery, I deliberately added a copy of "Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party". When I delivered the newspaper, the boss's daughter was standing nearby. I kindly said to her: "This "Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party" is for you. I hope you can give it a good read as it is a magic tool for saving people."
On the 10th of February this year, when I was giving out papers in Hall Three, a man blocked the door to No. 28, gesturing for me not to enter the store to give out the newspaper. I went away, saying nothing, and continued with my paper rounds. Master told us to look inside whenever there is a problem. Why did he prevent me from delivering a newspaper to the store?
He was the boss and had many relatives and employees in the store. Could he interfere with other people's lives, determining someone else's fate? They were waiting to be saved! We cannot leave any predestined person behind. When I went to No. 28 the following time, I saw a female employee on the phone. I stood by the door and waited until she got off the phone. I kindly asked her: "Would you like to read the newspaper?" She declined. I said: "You have a misunderstanding, we do not mind. We Falun Gong practitioners are all good people. We are both Chinese people. The newspaper has Chinese culture and is for Chinese people. If you would like to read it, you are welcome to let me know at any time.” She relayed my message over the phone to her colleagues. After a while, once I passed Stall No. 31 on the newspaper rounds, a female employee came out and said: "Give me a copy." I said: "Great!" and gave her a copy. Since then employees of these two stalls started reading our paper again, and they became very hospitable.
On the 22nd of September, I went to Stall No. 28. Six or seven men were inside. They pulled out a chair and asked me to sit down. They asked me many questions – “How old are you?” “Why can’t people who practise Falun Gong return to China?” “Why do you go to the embassy?” “Why not give all of your money to the family of the Chinese person who was killed in the recent car accident?” and so on.
I told them I would answer their questions as best I can. I said, "Ever since the Communist Party came into power in mainland China, the policies and measures adopted have been bureaucratic and authoritarian to the extreme. Three years of famine starved countless people to death. One political movement followed another. The Cultural Revolution in particular practically wiped out five thousand years of Chinese culture. Everyone feels insecure, everyone is afraid of the Communist Party. We Falun Gong practitioners follow the principles of "Truthfulness, Compassion, Tolerance" to be good people. We do not fight with people, and always think of others. Our protest in front of the embassy is peaceful. It is to demand that the CCP stops persecuting Falun Gong. A Chinese person in Warsaw was killed in a car accident by the Poles. This should be the kind of thing that the Embassy deals with. But instead of taking care of proper business, they spend all their energy persecuting Falun Gong. Think about it!"
A man in his fifties said: "You Falun Gong practitioners follow a great way of high morality. You are good people, doing good deeds for everyone." I left the stall and continued giving out the newspaper. One of the men came to the hallway waiting for me to give him a copy. I said: "You can only learn the real truth in a foreign country. We are awakening people. Only when you are awoken, can you be saved." He said, "Thank you!"
I made a lot of paper lotus flowers to be given to the public when promoting Dafa around Poland. We also showed predestined people how to make paper lotus flowers at Falun Gong promotion sites so that they could learn about Dafa. This attracted a lot of people. They all participated in the activities of making lotus flowers. Because of the language barrier, it was difficult for me to communicate but I treated people with kindness. They all thanked me in Polish when they received our gifts of lotus flowers and leaflets. In September, at an event to promote Falun Gong in front of the Presidential Palace, a seven-year-old boy took part in our lotus flower activity. When he received the lotus flower that I gave him, he said loudly the Chinese words that he had just learned, "Thank you!" I was deeply touched. Sentient beings know Dafa is saving them, and they sincerely thank Dafa.
These are some of my cultivation experiences, which are far from Master’s requirements. I must continue to cultivate diligently and advance towards consummation.

Thank you, Master. Thank you, fellow practitioners!
