A Few Words to Share During the Autumn Moon Festival

[PureInsight.org] I had been busy all day long and forgot the time. Suddenly, the wind started to blow and a chill was in the air. It was dusk. Light clouds filled the sky and only a few stars were visible.

I looked up at the moon; it was full. I then realized that it is already autumn. Autumn once again draws us closer to spring. It is a season of harvest, a time for getting together with family. In the dim twilight, people are happy when they gather together. They are sad when their dear ones are gone. I remember poets from ancient times described the autumn moon with the same feeling.

Some people do not adore emotion or profit and tend to look at things lightly. But although they are detached from the world, they still have difficulty letting go of their personal feelings. They only broaden their vision when facing predicaments in order to attain personal liberation.

There is a group of people; their determination is as strong as diamond, yet they possess boundless benevolence in all they do. They deserve admiration for their beliefs and behavior that is based on Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, which they adhere to under any difficulty. Their beliefs allow them not only to extricate themselves from predicaments, but also to consider others more.

When I mention Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, some may know that I am referring to Falun Gong practitioners. People who understand Falun Gong have experienced the glory that Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance brings to life. Some do not know the meaning of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance but may relate to Falun Gong after being touched by its great benevolence.

Falun Gong is being severely persecuted in China, but Falun Gong practitioners have no fear in facing the huge pressure. They tirelessly persist in telling people about the goodness of Falun Gong and exposing the evilness of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). They do this in an attempt to awaken kind people to not be deceived by the CCP. Only by staying away from the CCP will one be saved and have a bright future. Their hearts are filled with selfless and altruistic faith.

The Mid-Autumn Festival is near. How many children are working hard to save their parents who have been illegally detained for practicing Falun Gong? And in the process, these children always remember to clarify the truth to people.

Some people may not understand such behavior. What’s more, some may ask: “Your own relatives are imprisoned. You should just go rescue your own parents. Why talk about saving others? It is ridiculous!” To those who have said these words, do you know that their efforts of telling you the truth have no selfish motives behind them? If they indeed are seeking something, it is only that you will understand the truth. Knowing the truth lays your foundation for the future.

On the other hand, aren’t their dear ones being arrested simply because they tried to tell you the truth about their illegal treatment? I say that their clarifying the facts about this is without the least bit of personal angst or emotion. I would like to make this point clear and hope that you will ponder it deeply.
