Clarifying the Truth Face to Face: Listeners Suggest That I Should Clarify the Truth Everywhere
(Clearwisdom.net) This time period is our golden opportunity to clarify the truth and save all beings, while utilizing many different methods at our disposal. As I clarified the truth, I realized that doing so face to face was an excellent way to do it. It was effective because it allowed the other person to respond and ask questions, and it could be immediately explained further.
For example, I used such an opportunity when I went to the driving school. I clarified the truth to the instructors and students, and the results were excellent. Initially, I informed them that I practiced Falun Gong. They were intrigued and asked me a lot of questions, including about the "4.25 event," the staged "Tiananmen self-immolation," why Jiang Zemin wants to suppress Falun Gong and so on. I would then clarify the truth to them one by one.
If there were any questions, they could be answered immediately. When my righteous thoughts were strong, I found that my audience would readily listen to what I said. They would surround me and ask me to talk more. They would say that they had never heard a rebuttal to those television broadcasts, and they really were confused by these broadcasts. Only after they heard what I said did they get a clear understanding of the situation. They even suggested that I ought to go and clarify the truth everywhere. They said that if I would make a greater effort, more people would come to know the true situation. How else could people know the facts? This is clear evidence that we should clarify the truth everywhere and to everyone. This would be offering salvation to everyone and part of our responsibility.
In the process of clarifying the truth directly, there are two points that I feel are very important. One, we must not talk at too high a level. As long as the listener can understand the basic facts, it would suffice, unless they are able to accept more. Furthermore, when answering a question, we should always try to provide the answer as Teacher had taught us, and the result would be good. For example, why did we go to Zhongnanhai? Why is there such a thing as one nation and two systems? Why did Jiang and his followers suppress Falun Gong, and so on? Teacher had given us the answers to these questions. We need to address these questions well and articulate the principles, and they are bound to be able to understand. Therefore, we must study the Fa more and maintain our righteous thoughts. These are the pre-requisites for effectively clarifying the truth.
