Keeping up with the Fa Rectification Process and Helping to Save More Sentient Beings
(Clearwisdom.net) Recently, Teacher published the two articles, "We Are Not 'Getting Political'" and "Turning the Wheel Towards the Human World." Dafa practitioners have all felt the rapid process of Fa rectification. As our benevolent Teacher is "Turning the Wheel Towards the Human World," this is another opportunity for sentient beings to choose a bright future. As Fa rectification period Dafa disciples, we should closely follow Teacher's Fa rectification process and assist Teacher, thereby helping to save more sentient beings.
My father has been a veteran CCP member for several decades. Although he knows about Dafa and does not oppose it, he has been brainwashed and poisoned by the CCP's propaganda for so long that he sometimes feels that Dafa is involved in politics. After reading Teacher's article "Turning the Wheel Towards the Human world" and the Clearwisdom editors' article "People in Mainland China For Whom it Would be Dangerous to Publicize Their Names Can Publicly Announce Their Withdrawal from the CCP Using an Alias," I discussed with my mother and my wife, who are both Dafa disciples, about how to persuade my father to withdraw from the CCP.
I chose an appropriate occasion to give my father the article from the Clearwisdom editors about how to withdraw from the CCP, while my mother and my wife sent forth righteous thoughts nearby to eliminate the evil spirit of the CCP in him. After reading the article, he said, "Everything said here is reasonable, but as I have not paid any membership fees to the CCP for many years, we would have been automatically dismissed and withdrawn from the CCP, so we don't need to make any statement to do it." My father then accused Dafa disciples of participating in politics through these actions.
Seeing this situation, I became overly anxious and pushy because of my desire to get this done. Because of this, my father also got agitated. As a result, the effect of clarifying the facts to him this time was minimal. But the Clearwisdom editors' article really touched him, leaving him buried in deep thought. It seemed like the CCP's evil influence on him was eliminated to some degree, and his knowing side began to think about how to make the right choice.
Through talking with my father, I saw my own shortcomings. I should not have been so impatient and so eager to get a result from him. Instead, I should have taken a gradual and proper route, since my father has been poisoned by the CCP's propaganda for so long. To completely eliminate the CCP's poison, we need to let go of our own attachments, form one body and have righteous thoughts and actions. Thus, whenever my mother, my wife and I send righteous thoughts together, we focused our attention on eliminating the CCP's evil influence and its evil factors that are attached to my father. Meanwhile we also gave him Teacher's recent article "We Are Not 'Getting Political'" and "Turning the Wheel Towards the Human world" to read.
As a small family Fa study group forming one body with a righteous mind, we have, through our righteous thoughts and actions, gradually eliminated the CCP's evil spirit in my father. My father's mindset was slowly rectified. I then gave him the "Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party" to read. He was fascinated by it and read it carefully. After finishing it very quickly, he told me, "What's written in the Nine Commentaries are indeed true, as I have personally experienced and/or heard about a lot of it. The CCP is indeed deceiving, violent and corrupt. I have decided to withdraw right away, and I will use the alias 'Clear and Bright' in my statement to withdraw from the CCP." I suppose the reason that my father used the name "Clear and Bright" to indicate that he is now clear about the nature of the CCP and has a bright road ahead of him. My father said later, "Withdrawing from the CCP has helped me understand Dafa better. I feel like I am about to step into the door of Dafa cultivation." I feel certain that my father will become a Dafa practitioner in the near future.
My father seized the opportunity given by Teacher, and I am very happy for him. At the same time, I also understand that my father's salvation is not merely a salvation of him, but also of countless beings within his universe. Fellow practitioners, let us keep our great oath made before history, have righteous thoughts and actions and follow closely the Fa rectification process that has been increasingly pushed forward by Teacher. Let us help to save more sentient beings!
