Understandings on Life: A Person’s Integrity Speaks for Them

Author:

Guan Ming

[PureInsight.org] History is like a mirror. Looking at it can reveal many details. Reading history makes one feel as if transcending time and space, replaying a video of past scenes. There are many things that happened in history, and we can learn a lot from them by reading history books. Shiji, a history masterpiece written by the ancient historian Shi Maqian, is one example of such a book. Today, as I picked up Shiji, I noticed one ancient proverb in it: “A person’s integrity speaks for them.”

This proverb came from the biography of General Li in Shiji. It is written, “General Li was not good at talking. However, upon his death, people everywhere mourned for him because of his loyalty and sincerity to others. That is, a person’s integrity speaks for them.”

These words are referring to Li Guang, a well-known general in the Xihan Dynasty. Being both wise and brave, General Li made great contributions in defending against enemy invaders. In addition to his martial arts skills, he was also well-known for caring about his soldiers. One day when marching in cold weather, General Li saw a soldier with injured legs walking with great difficulty. He got off his horse and asked the soldier to ride on it while gently consoling the soldier. All the soldiers who witnessed this were touched. When stopping for a break, it was found that the troops had a limited supply of food. General Li gave his own share of food to the injured soldier and slept with an empty stomach that night.

Such sincerity and caring earned trust from the soldiers. Although General Li did not talk about these, the soldiers were touched and thus fought bravely against their enemies. When word came that General Li had died, all the soldiers, as well as some civilians, were in tears. Shi Maqian recorded this in Shiji and praised General Li.

In fact, showing off is a bad habit. A person’s virtue will be noticed by others even if they themselves do not talk about it. This is a level of a spiritual realm. I think as practitioners, we should also remain humble in the course of assimilating to the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.

The ‘Hidden Holocaust’

Click here for more on the decade persecution of Falun Gong.

Falun Gong practitioners and supporters are commemorating the ten-year anniversary of the Chinese regime’s persecution of the practice, a campaign that has been dubbed a “hidden holocaust.”

That theme was elaborated upon by Falun Gong spokesperson John Deller at a Wednesday July 15 forum at NSW State Parliament in Sydney, Australia.

“A holocaust is described as any mass slaughter or reckless destruction of life, and I’m sure you would agree that’s what has been happening,” Mr Deller said.

First to speak was NSW Legislative Council member Rev Hon Dr Gordon Moyes. He told of being caught smuggling bibles into China and his advocacy efforts for Chinese students in Australia to be given permanent residency after the 1989 Tiananmen Square massacre.

Dr Moyes said that when the first Falun Gong forum in State Parliament was to be held several years ago, the Chinese Embassy called, pressuring them to cancel it. Dr Moyes made sure that didn’t happen.

“We told the Embassy to shoot off. I have never subsequently been invited to China.”

He said he had met Chinese missionaries with scars and tales of torture and beatings, similar to how Falun Gong practitioners are treated today.

“In an earlier day it was Christians that went through that,” Mr Moyes said. “My concern is for human rights, whether it’s for Christians or Falun Gong people.

“China could be the greatest country in the world, but they need to understand that the rights of every single person are inalienable.”

Mr Deller spoke of Falun Gong’s development and subsequent persecution in China. He reminded the audience that in 1995 when the practice was spread overseas, Falun Gong founder Li Hongzhi’s first talk was held in the Chinese Embassy in France, after an invitation from the Chinese Ambassador.

He said contrary to some belief, Falun Gong (also known as Faun Dafa) thrives in China, particularly by using the Minghui.com website which was created and maintained by Falun Gong practitioners, to exchange information and to expose the CCP atrocities, .

“It’s through access to that website that Falun Dafa practitioners inside China have been able to communicate with the outside world,” Mr Deller said.

He said 254,000 cases of persecution have been logged on Minghui since the persecution began in July 1999, and the site has received over 406,000 solemn declarations from Falun Gong practitioners declaring that statements they made against Falun Gong while under pressure from authorities are null and void.

“That gives us an idea of the scale of the persecution,” Mr Deller said.

He said the persecution of Falun Gong has implications for the whole world. The Communist Party has separated the Chinese people from their traditional values and forced them to participate in the persecution of Falun Gong, and is trying to do the same abroad.

“The Communist Party is trying to coopt people in the West down the same path,” Mr Deller said. “It’s basically an attack on human morality.”

“Our thoughts will either help to disintegrate the Communist Party or help to sustain it.”

Mr Deller said the persecution of Falun Gong is illegal by China’s own laws, as courts are not allowed to accept Falun Gong cases and lawyers are not allowed to represent Falun Gong practitioners.

Similarly in Western countries governments have blocked legal action against Chinese officials.

“Sadly Australia is no exception,” Mr Deller said, describing a certificate issued by Foreign Minister Stephen Smith under s40 of the Foreign States Immunity Act which allows the Minister to confer immunity on a foreign state official that the court has to accept.
“That certificate is in effect a directive to the court which is disturbingly similar to the directive given to the courts in China,” Mr Deller said.

‘A living hell’

Labor camp survivor, Falun Gong practitioner, and author of the bestselling book Witnessing History,  Jennifer Zeng, described life inside the Beijing Municipal Women’s ‘Re-education Through Labor’ Camp after being arrested in April 2000.

She was tortured to make her give up her belief in Falun Gong.

“When people ask me what life was like in the camp, I can only say it was a living hell,” Ms Zeng said.

She said she was shocked with electric batons, deprived of sleep for days on end and forced to squat for hours in the sun. She saw an inmate tied for days on a bed, unable to move, causing the flesh on her buttocks and back to rot.

“This kind of abuse was very, very common in the camp,” Ms Zeng said.

She also had to work non-stop from 5.30am until 1 or 2am every day producing sweaters, wallets and soft toys for export to Western countries.

“We knew they were for Westerners because of the larger sizes,” Ms Zeng said. “It wasn’t for Asian people.”

She was also blood tested and given x-rays. With the emergence of evidence that Falun Gong practitioners are killed and their organs harvested, she later realised the significance of those blood tests.

Personal investigation

Journalist Ethan Gutmann told of his personal investigation into organ harvesting allegations, and the lack of Western media coverage.

“When charges of organ harvesting came, you can count the number of detailed reports by Western media on it on the fingers of one hand,” Mr Gutmann said.

He interviewed over 100 people and found a large percentage had experienced “expensive and inexplicable blood tests” along with close physical examinations of their corneas, which can be transplanted.

It was strange that these were done without corresponding checks of the mouth, ears and genitals, which would be more important in a physical health check.

He said the regime was at a loss about what to do with tens or even hundreds of thousands of the most stubborn Falun Gong practitioners who refused to “transform”.

“Falun Gong practitioners had become the equivalent of drums leaking toxic waste,” Mr Gutmann said. “They were expensive to keep and too risky to release.”

He said these nameless, dehumanised people were vulnerable targets for organ harvesting.

His investigation was published last year in The Weekly Standard.

‘It seemed to me really precious’ Says Actress

SANTIAGO, Chile—A sense of innocence and purity was what the audience felt during the first performance of the Shen Yun 2009 World Tour in Santiago Friday night, July 10 at the Teletón Theater.

“It was what the whole show projected in general,” said actress Ms. Montero.

“I cannot find the correct words to express it … it makes me feel a lot of tenderness, I found it very good because of the clear level of technique—the dancers are perfect! To me I found it very innocent, much tenderness, I felt innocent, much innocence and purity is what they transmitted.”

The purity, she said, was not found in one particular dance, but the whole show. Ms. Montero has acted on TV, in the theater, and some short films. She has also studied art and culture.

“I believe this is a show with very high artistic level.”

Shen Yun Performing Arts is a New York-based company who seek to revive and uphold the traditions of ancient Chinese culture, through legends, Chinese classical dance, music, and song.

“It seemed to me really precious, very, very refining,” Ms. Montero said. She was also impressed with the way the two presenters of the show wove the tales and the performances together, explaining the history and background behind dances with humor and simplicity.

“They have that role of dialogue with the public, it seemed to me very cozy.”

“That is what seeing them makes me feel.”

The Shen Yun Touring Company, has visited over 80 cities, this season, performing to a live audience of more than 600,000 people.

Shen Yun is performing three shows in Santiago, Chile, from July 10 to 12. The show will then return to Argentina on July 16, this time in Cordoba, performing three more shows until July 18.

A Decade of Courage

Ten years after the Tiananmen Square massacre,10,000 Falun gong practitioners gathered outside China’s central leadership compound in Beijing. They had come to appeal at China’s central appeals office — to appeal for practitioners who had been abused in the city of Tianjin, for their books, which had been banned, and for practitioners all over the country who were being harassed and investigated by the police.

They were met by the Chinese premier, and the arrested practitioners were released. It seemed like the appeal had been successful. But in reality, time was running out, and the brutal crackdown was getting closer and closer.
