When I went to work, my colleagues said how are you? I realised that, if I said Im fine, I would feel uneasy at heart. Because, when I knew that Yongjie, a nice and kind girl, is being persecuted and deprived of her freedom just for her belief, and that her parents and fiancé are so worried about her, I couldnt say I was fine. So I told them Yongjies story. Everyone was shocked. While I was telling the story, tears came to my eyes, and theirs. At that time, I realised that I had not regarded my fellow practitioners who had been persecuted in prisons or labour camps as my family.
I really hope that, one day, I can completely forget about myself and only live for others. That is the realm of an enlightened being.
Im doing a part-time job, acting as a cleaner. Previously, I thought that, due to my social status, it would be hard for me to clarify the facts to other people. However, I was wrong. I realised that I had been worrying about things that were not important at all, such as status and identity. That showed that I was not pure enough. Now I understand that the cosmic characteristics, namely Truthfulness, Compassion, Tolerance, are ruling everything, and that nothing is more powerful than a pure and kind heart. I saw that my boss put his hand on his chest, his eyes became tearful. My story hadnt come to an end when he exclaimed, the Chinese government is really cruel! I had to explain to him, Thats just some of them. I saw our young workshop manager listening attentively with righteousness in his face. When I asked him whether he would like to sign our petition, he not only signed himself, but told all workers in his workshop about this, all of whom subsequently signed it. I saw that workers whom I had not been familiar with asking me for petition forms, saying that they could get their parents and friends to sign
How kind these British people are! They told me that they are very glad to do so.
I realised that, as a person who believes the cosmic characteristics are Truthfulness, Compassion, Tolerance, my heart had not been entirely righteous. Now I find that a truly pure and kind heart can change the world. Yongjie and all other Falun Gong practitioners who have been persecuted are not alone. Many many eyes are watching, many many hearts are with them, and there will be more and more
