My Experiences in Persuading People to Withdraw from the Three Communist Organizations
(Clearwisdom.net) When I started to persuade people to do the "three withdrawals" [quitting the Chinese Communist Party and its affiliated Youth League and Young Pioneers League], I felt it was very difficult. I didnt know how to talk to people. I feared that people would not listen to me, and feared that people would say that I am involved in politics. However, no matter how hard, I had to do it.
First, in order to remove my attachment of fear, I devoted more time to study and recite the Fa. Then, I started by talking with my family members. Before I talked to them, I sent forth righteous thoughts and kept sending forth righteous thoughts while I talked to them, asking for Teachers strengthening. With Teachers help I talked with members of my family, my sisters family and my brothers family, and all of them have done the three withdrawals.
Just as described in Zhuan Falun,
"When it seems impossible to do, or just hard to do, give it a try and see just what you can do. And when you can really do it, just like that worn and weary traveler, youll see, the shade of willows, the blooms of flowers, a place to rest my head!"
"Cultivation is up to you, gong is up to the master."
As long as we come to do it seriously, talking to people from the bottom of our hearts, Teacher will help us and give us wisdom. Then nothing is impossible to accomplish.
Family members have withdrawn, many relatives and good friends have withdrawn, and neighbors have withdrawn as well. Next, I talked to those people whom I think I have a good relationship with. After these people withdrew, I enlarged the circle again, just like rolling a snowball, getting it larger and larger. The wisdom Teacher gave us will be enlarged too, and we will have more and more energy.
Having talked to all the people around me, how could I talk to people far away? I was not familiar with them. Usually I dont drop in on other peoples homes. Suddenly dropping in on someones home, I would feel a little embarrassed. How could I do it? I picked up relatively better items in my house, like flowers, vegetables, fruits from the refrigerator and clothes, and brought them to someones home. On one hand, I have made new friends. On the other hand, I was able to clarify the truth and persuade people to do the three withdrawals. In this way, ranging from people I knew well to people who were strangers to me, I lost count of how many people I persuaded to do the three withdrawals.
There are many chances for one to clarify the truth and persuade people to do the three withdrawals. It just depends on your initiative. For example, if someone is buying honeycomb briquettes and using a cart to carry them home, I will go to help him on my own, hoping to find a chance. Also, when someone is moving, selling or buying a house, renting a house, asking for directions, getting married, having a funeral, and so on, I would participate on my own initiative. If someone is ill, I will go to see him with a gift. If there is a quarrel between man and wife, or a mother-in-law and a daughter-in-law arent getting along, I will go to mediate between the two parties. There were also many people who came up asking for my help. I gladly helped them all. My purpose is always the same: let more people know the truth and do the three withdrawals. Therefore, my husband gave me the nickname "director of this area."
On one occasion a man who lived in the building next to ours suffered an accident when riding a motorcycle and was seriously injured. I visited him with a gift and clarified the truth to him. After realizing the facts, he was very moved and did the three withdrawals, as did his child. Even his friend, who went to visit him, did the three withdrawals. I also told him that if he could tell his friends the true facts, he would have done a great deed and accumulated much virtue. I told him that what he says will be saving them. If you did not clarify the truth to them and they died when the disaster comes, wouldnt you feel regret? Several days later, he came to my house and told me that two of his friends had already done the three withdrawals.
As a matter of fact, every fellow practitioner has relatives, good friends, schoolmates, and neighbors. If everyone goes out to talk to people, I think the number of people who do the three withdrawals will not be the same as we have now. Teacher told us in Zhuan Falun,
"But actually, I think that whether its hard depends on the person. A really average, ordinary person doesnt want to cultivate, and hell feel that cultivation is just way too hard, that its unthinkable, For a true cultivator, Id say its easy."
We are Dafa practitioners during the Fa-rectification period. In the process of clarifying the truth and persuading people to do the three withdrawals, we are also cultivating ourselves. The better we do, the stronger our energy fields become, the smaller the interference will be, and the more the black hands, rotten ghosts and evil spirits of Communism will be eliminated. There are times when I didnt do well. That is, I should have talked to people but I didnt. However, from now on, I will make more effort to do it and become a qualified Dafa practitioner.
Fellow practitioners, we have formed a whole body. Lets make the best use of our limited time! Dont disappoint Teacher, dont disappoint the sentient beings. In addition to studying the Fa well and sending forth righteous thoughts well, lets clarify the truth to more people and clarify the truth faster.
My cultivation level is limited and I hope fellow practitioners will point out and correct any mistakes in this article.
