Some of My Understandings of the Current Truth-Clarifying Process
(Clearwisdom.net) After reading Teacher's new lecture, "Fa-Lecture at the Conference in Florida, U.S.A.," I personally feel that the Fa-rectification process has reached a new stage and that Teacher has revealed a deeper layer of meaning in the Fa. Teacher has told us the importance of studying the Fa, sending forth righteous thoughts, and clarifying the truth.
From my personal experience, I know we have to maintain the purest thoughts when clarifying the truth, and that we have to use righteous thoughts when rectifying the Fa and clarifying the truth. With whatever comes our way, we have to make Dafa and the work of saving sentient beings the priority.
We all do different tasks in Fa-rectification and truth-clarification. I am responsible for delivering Dafa materials to people, and I always put two VCDs, each with different truth-clarifying content, in my pockets wherever I go. When I run across my former co-workers, classmates, my neighbors, friends, or even my wife's classmates and friends, I always approach them and start a conversation. Then I silently recite Teacher's Fa-rectification verses and send forth righteous thoughts to eliminate any evil that is interfering with him or her. After casually talking about how each of us has been, etc., I tell him/her that I am practicing Falun Gong. Then I tell them that the persecution of Falun Dafa involves and affects every person, because Dafa created all beings in the universe. After that, I say, "So, wouldn't you like to hear the truth about Falun Dafa? You've heard so much defamation of Falun Gong on TV and in the newspaper, so you don't know what Falun Dafa truly is. You are my good friend (co-worker, neighbor, classmate, relative). If I let you know the truth about Falun Dafa and the persecution, you'll be saved on the day when everything reveals itself. Then you'll thank me for having let you know the truth. Maybe you'd like to look at the true situation for yourself rather than listening to me. Here's a VCD. Once you've finished watching the VCD, it's possible you'll understand everything. I also hope that you'll pass it on to your friends and relatives so that they can be saved soon." As I speak, my tone is very sincere and I truly do this for the person's own good. "I wouldn't lie to you. It's not that I want you to practice or start learning Dafa right away, I only want you to know the truth, reposition yourself for the future, understand what is good and what is evil, and differentiate between what is right and what is wrong. That's all." After they hear these words, they reply that they'll definitely watch the VCD and they thank me.
After I clarify the truth, I always feel the importance of the duty Dafa has given me, and I realize how closely linked our current truth-clarifying work is to the future humankind obtaining the Fa! So let us do our best to fulfill the great, historic responsibility and duty we have been given, and to fulfill the vows we made to the Lord of Buddhas.
The above is my own understanding, and I welcome any criticism from other practitioners.
