My Experience With Face-To-Face Truth Clarification
(Clearwisdom.net) In the current special historical moment, every Falun Dafa practitioner is playing his/her own role in clarifying the truth and saving sentient beings using various approaches. Each person has a different cultivation path, and the ways that each practitioner adapts to clarify the truth are also different. For me, I prefer talking to people directly and telling them the truth up front. It seems to me that I can explain the truth more completely and thoroughly when I talk directly to others. Often, the other party will raise some questions when I talk to him/her, and I will address those particular concerns one by one, and in the end, many people will have their confusion and doubts within their hearts cleared up after such direct discussions.
When I went shopping, I would clarify the truth to the shop owner. Quite often, many people passing by would gather around me, trying to hear what I was talking about. At first, I was a little bit afraid and I would stop talking when others came near me, even though I was eager to spread the truth. It took quite some time for me to overcome this difficulty. One day while I was studying the Fa, I felt my mind immediately broadened as I realized that all those who approached me were trying to learn the truth about Falun Dafa. From then on, I would clarify the truth even more extensively.
I also tried to spread the truth to all my school classmates, friends, and old acquaintances. Whoever I knew that I could get in touch with, I would clarify the truth to them. Sometimes, I would even run into friends that I had not seen for more than 8 or 9 years, and I would tell them about the truth of Falun Dafa.
In the process of truth clarification, I have realized that as long as we follow the requirements that have been laid out by Teacher, our path validating the Fa will become brighter and broader. Especially when I run across a good person, I will let him or her know more of the truth. Many times, when I have to say good-bye to these kind people, they expressed their great admiration and gratitude. Looking into the eyes of these pure-hearted people, I can't help saying to myself: "All these people are just waiting for such a day. As a Dafa practitioner, what a great responsibility it is for us to spread the truth to them."
When I was at work, I didn't have many chances to talk to my colleagues. I would try to leave the office together with my colleagues when the day was over. I would then tell my colleagues about the truth of Falun Dafa along the way. However, when someone tipped off my manager about my truth clarification, I decided to take the opportunity to speak directly with my boss. My boss didn't want to listen to me and told me that I should stop mentioning Falun Gong if I wanted to keep my job. In the end, I decided to quit and I got a new job.
When I first started my new job, I felt some kind of invisible pressure around me. Nobody seemed to like me and people would give me cold faces and wouldn't involve me in important issues. Even some people who I didn't work directly with would come to criticize me. I decided to send forth righteous thoughts to eliminate the evil present around my new office. The situation gradually improved.
For a very long time, I had tried to clarify the truth to only those few people who were close to me. I didn't go any further than that. One night, I had a dream, and in my dream, I found that those few people from my office that had already learned the truth were all shining while the rest appeared pitch black. I could only hear their talk, I couldn't even actually see them. I woke up right away and I understood that I really should have tried even harder to spread the truth to everyone.
Very often, various kinds of interference will pop up. However, as long as we follow the requirements laid out by the Teacher, do the three things well, and walk a straight cultivation path, we will be able to minimize any possible losses and save even more sentient beings.
