(Clearwisdom.net) The progress of Fa-rectification has entered a new stage. The changes have manifested in many aspects, including the cultivation environment having changed greatly. The evil field is becoming weaker and weaker, and the evil elements are becoming less and less in number, while the time left for Dafa practitioners is also becoming less. The substance and method of our truth clarification is also changing with the progress of Fa-rectification and Dafa practitioners' maturity.

I have been using the Nine Commentaries as part of my truth clarification material after I realized that in addition to clarifying the truth about Dafa and the persecution, the Nine Commentaries is a very important tool for clearing away the poisonous evil party culture from people's minds. Teacher said,

"The Nine Commentaries aim to save all beings whose minds have been poisoned by the evil, which includes members of the malevolent Chinese Communist Party (CCP), those in the CCP's most powerful organs, and the common people. The goal is to help beings in all realms see clearly the factors behind the malevolent CCP." ("We Are Not 'Getting Political'")

After studying Teacher's articles, "We Are Not 'Getting Political'" and "Turning the Wheel Towards the Human World", I realized that the aim of spreading the Nine Commentaries is to help people see more clearly the evil nature and true face of the CCP and to help people quit the evil party and its affiliated organizations, so that they can be saved and have a future. The purpose is to save sentient beings. It was the CCP who chose to do evil, to persecute Dafa and to destroy sentient beings. That's why the Gods decided to eliminate the evil party. This is a cosmic change.

By helping Teacher with Fa-rectification, Dafa practitioners are saving sentient beings. Teacher said in Zhuan Falun,

"Without human action happening under cosmic changes, such conditions would not have been brought to ordinary human society, and neither would they be called cosmic changes."

Then who should "take action"? It is Dafa disciples who vowed to help Teacher with Fa-rectification and saving sentient beings. Teacher has hinted to us of our magnificent vows made hundreds of billions years ago. Spreading the Nine Commentaries, helping people quit the CCP and clarifying the truth is helping sentient beings to free themselves from the control and bondage of the party and to cure those who have been poisoned by the party culture. This is in fact helping the world's people escape the fate of being eliminated together with the evil party. This is not getting political. This is saving people. Cultivators' aims are beyond the secular world. They won't pursue or become attached to power in ordinary society.

After coming to these understandings, I actively participated in spreading the Nine Commentaries and convincing people to withdraw from the Chinese Communist Party and its affiliated organizations. During my initial sharing with practitioners, I found that there were still a handful of them who were not very clear on the importance of promoting the Nine Commentaries and convincing people to quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations. They thought that Dafa practitioners were getting political. So I studied Teacher's articles with these practitioners and shared with them my understanding about the articles. In the end, these practitioners gained a good understanding towards the Nine Commentaries.

A relative of mine is a Dafa practitioner. She joined the CCP several decades ago. In the beginning she did not have a clear understanding of the Nine Commentaries and withdrawing from the CCP. Because of the evil party's decades of brainwashing, she had a strong fear of quitting the CCP. She said, "I'd like to quit the party with an alias. But what about my party dues? How can I refuse to pay?" She was full of worries. I helped enhance her understanding. I said, "You are a Dafa practitioner. If you just think: I don't want to pay the party dues, you will surely be able to overcome this difficulty. You can read Teacher's article 'Dafa Disciples' Righteous Thoughts are Powerful.' All Dafa practitioners must resign from the evil party and its affiliated organizations. They should not pay any party dues on their own initiative any more. This is a matter of principle in our cultivation. We always talk about letting go of life and death. Now you are required to quit the evil party. To quit the party means to give up any so-called political future in the evil party. How can you talk about letting go of life and death if you cannot even let go of this? Actually this 'political future' is a dangerous trap. It shows that we haven't cultivated well." She realized at last, "Yes, how can a Dafa practitioner remain a member of the evil party which persecutes Dafa?" She wrote a resignation statement right away and has not paid any party dues since then, nor has anyone in her work unit asked her to pay.

My husband and I live in different cities. We only get to see each other for a few days every year, and I am responsible for looking after our child. Because of the poison instilled in him by the lies played on radio and television, my husband did not know the facts about Dafa, nor did he support my cultivation or truth clarification work. Early this year, he resigned from his job and returned home. He then went on the Internet to look for a new job. Each time he would write in his resume that he was a member of the evil party, and each time he failed to get the job. I then gave him the Nine Commentaries to read and clarified the truth to him. Gradually he came to know the truth and quit the party. After that he wrote again in his resume that he had been a party member. I said to him, "Don't write about that any more. It will be eliminated by heaven! If you still say you were a party member, you are acting against heaven, so you can't find a job." He felt amused upon hearing this. Then he held his mouse and clicked on the words "CCP member", saying, "Look! I am now deleting these words! Let's see if what you say is true about finding a job!" The result was, on the second and third day after he sent out his resume, two companies called and wished to hire him. This time he was thoroughly convinced.

In order to save sentient beings, I often go out to distribute truth clarification materials. My husband did not quite understand why I had to do this. He said, "If Falun Gong is good, why don't you just practice at home? Why do you always go out to do these things? It's too dangerous!" I patiently told him, "The reason why we go out to distribute truth clarification materials is that we must help non-practitioners who are deceived by the lies know what Falun Gong really is so that they can be saved. We risk our lives to clarify the truth and convince people to quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations because we need to save them. Because we know the truth, we must tell people. Otherwise they might be counted as part of the evil party and be done for." Gradually he understood and showed his support.

The mission shouldered by Dafa practitioners is very great. What I have done is far from enough. I need to be more diligent and do better. There are still so many people who don't know the truth. We must redouble our efforts to do the three things well, save more sentient beings and fulfill our vows!
