  5. “好人,好人,你是好人哪!”

    【明慧网二零二一年七月十日】三年前,一个亲戚的家人来电话说亲戚病危,我们赶到了医院。只见亲戚双目紧闭,无任何反应。

    我还没走到他的床前,他突然睁开眼睛,抬起右手,对我竖着大拇指,嘴里喊道:“好人 ,好人, 你是好人哪!”

    虽然声音有些沙哑含糊,但能听出他喊的是什么。他喊完这句话之后,就两眼定定的望着我。我还没来得及做出反应,他的手就沉重的落在被子上,眼睛又闭上了。

    在场的人都有些发愣,看看他,又看看我,谁都没说话。半晌,他儿子才说,他爸已经好几天神志不清了,没说话了,这是第一次说话。的确,一直到他去世,再没醒过来,更甭提说话了。这句话是他在病危中说的唯一的一句话,也是他临终前的最后一句话。

    这位亲戚是中共邪党的处级干部,在中共的历次运动中,他都紧跟邪党效忠尽力,说句不好听的话,就是充当中共的政治打手,泯灭良知,以党性替代人性。他对我修炼法轮大法颇有微词。我对他老伴讲法轮功真相,一讲他老伴就认同,马上退出了邪党的团、队组织。对这位亲戚讲真相可就费劲了。

    他不但不听,反倒要说服我。给我讲了他单位的右派份子是怎么抓出来的。他的用意是告诉我:不跟中共保持一致,是没有好果子吃的。接着就说共产党对他怎么怎么,言外之意就是告诉我,共产党对他这么好,他不能退。至于其它政治运动他是怎么效忠的,他没说,也就不晓得了。

    因为是近亲,又在同一个城市,所以逢年过节,我们都要带上礼品到他家串门,吃完饭再回来。在他家,我主动找活干,每次都是帮着把他家收拾干净了再走,他就特别高兴。那时,他已经是多种严重疾病缠身。每次去,都看到他挺痛苦的。

    时间长了,我再给他讲真相,他也就不那么排斥了。我给他劝三退(退出中共的党、团、队组织)时,一方面来自他老伴的压力,逼他退;另一方面是我去他家一次就劝一次(还给带去真相台历和真相资料),他实在不好意思拒绝。最后他虽然同意退出邪恶的党团队组织,但看的出他很勉强。

    这次病危时他喊出的这句话,大家都以为是回光返照。只有我心里清楚,我明白他的意思是告诉我:他对法轮大法的认可,对大法弟子的认可,他是从心里同意三退了。同时,也表达了他的感激之情。

    虽说亲戚临终前终于明白、且有悔意,但他一生紧跟邪党可能还是干了不少坏事,而且祸及子孙。这一点,可从以后发生的一些事情和孩子们的遭遇可见一斑。

    亲戚曾有一个祖传大宅院,虽有些破损,但终究是祖上遗产。多年来,他一直在这个院里住着。他有三个儿子:老大、老二都有正式工作,老儿子在这宅院开了个饭馆。因饭馆离一所大学挺近,学生来吃饭的很多,所以生意很红火。

    可没两年,突然大学校扩建,就占了这个大宅院。当然价格不菲,但具体给了多少,亲戚不说,我也不好问。只听亲戚圈内传说,有的说给三百多万的;有的说两百多万的;有的说一百七十多万的。要知道,三十多年前,能当个万元户都是相当稀罕的。一下子進这么多钱,一家人雄心勃勃,一心想干番事业。

    好心的亲友都劝他们先每人置套房产,有个窝,然后把剩下的钱再去干事业。他们哪里听得進去,买房占资金,不合算。他们要钱生钱、利生利。孩子们各自都在自己所经营的场所住,老俩口租房住。孩子们工作也都辞了,一心开办起饭店旅馆、食品加工厂、山地林场。结果没几年,先后都黄了,钱也都折進去了。

    表面看,好象是不会经营,不善经营。实质上与德相关联。在古人看来,任何事情都是有因缘关系的,有德才能继承,无德财散尽,会以各种方式失去。比如被烧光、被抢光,或是有病花光、输光、赔光等。几年后,恰好赶上亲戚单位分房,亲戚以无房户名义申请。尽管退休了,单位还是给了他一套两居室的房子。

    三年后,亲戚的老伴去世了。三个儿子都无房、无工作、无固定资金来源。老大离婚,孤独一人,现在已双目失明;老二再婚有一个女儿,得了晚期癌症,在医院化疗;老三也是独身一人。要知道,他们分别是五十岁左右的人了。看到这般境况,亲友们的恻隐之心早已被怜悯、心酸、难过所替代。

    可又能怨谁呢?中国民间有句话:“父债子还,老人不干好事,给儿女造业。”亲戚效忠中共邪党,紧跟邪党干坏事 祸及子孙。

    毫无疑问,中共邪党是罪魁祸首!可那些为中共恶党站队、助纣为虐的具体执行者也都逃脱不了干系。善有善报,恶有恶报,不是不报,时候没到;时候一到,一切全报。宇宙善恶有报的法理,谁也别想逃脱。这还是人对人的迫害,人对人的报应。

    那么,针对佛法修炼人的迫害更是罪大无边,偿还不起,报应也愈惨烈。古语云:宁搅三江水,不扰道人心。给僧人一碗饭吃,都是功德无量。由此联想到当今中共恶党对修炼法轮佛法的人的迫害。那些为一己私利与中共为伍,诽谤污蔑法轮大法,残酷迫害法轮功学员,甚至将法轮功学员致残、致死的那些作恶者,也一定逃脱不了人治天惩。中国有句古话:害人必害己。不但害己,还必定祸及子孙。

    真心希望那些还在参与“清零行动”的所有人员,请你们珍惜自己与家人的生命的未来!守住你们的良知,不再充当中共迫害民众的打手,不跟随中共邪党迫害法轮大法,不参与迫害法轮功学员。同时为自己、也为后代多积福德。你的善心也一定会得到上天的福报。

  6. Just additional note regarding soy sauce name in Indonesia = kecap.
    In Indonesia, the most common soy sauce is sweet soy sauce. Kecap is commonly associated with sweet soy sauce, not the salty one. The salty soy sauce is called kecap asin.
    Their consistency are also different. Kecap is darker and thicker, while kecap asin is lighter both in color and consistency.
    By the way, you have to say kecap ASIN if you mean the salty soy sauce, otherwise you will get the sweet one. Asin = salty.
