(Clearwisdom.net) After reading Teacher's poem, "For the Good of the World," I realized the importance of clarifying the truth. I had been afraid of clarifying the truth, even to my neighbors. The existence of fear lasted for a long time. Teacher's fashen has been giving hints to me, encouraging me to clarify the truth and save sentient beings.

One day, I was walking with a practitioner on the street. There was a man in his 50's sitting nearby eating steamed buns. As we were walking, he came up and asked us for money. I said, "What made you become a beggar?" He replied, "When I was in my 20's, I worked as an accountant after graduating from college. One time I made a mistake, and my supervisor claimed I embezzled 100,000 yuan (approx. U.S. $12,300). I was furious at his claim and cut off four fingers from my right hand. I have been wronged since then." I told him, "The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has done so many bad deeds, and the heavens will eliminate it. We need to quit the CCP for peace and safety." He said, "Yes, yes! I want to quit!"

Another day, I met a woman in her 30's carrying a baby on her back, and she came up to me asking for money. I said, "Please remember Falun Dafa is good, 'Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance' is good!" She said she could not read, so I taught her how to read that sentence word by word and asked her to memorize it. I then hung a beautiful truth-clarification card on her baby's neck. When she stood up to leave, I noticed she had been kneeling down on the ground. As she was leaving, she kept looking back, saying, "Thank you," to me. I was very touched and was almost in tears.

Another practitioner told me a story from her truth-clarification efforts. One day, when she was riding a bike, she saw a middle-aged woman crawling on the ground. This practitioner felt very bad for the woman, stopped the bike, and walked towards her. Coincidently, the woman also stopped crawling for a rest. The practitioner asked, "Do you have illnesses that cause you pain?" The woman said she had rheumatism. The practitioner said, "I also used to have rheumatism and recovered after practicing Falun Gong. If you sincerely memorize the words, 'Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good,' your health will improve." The person did not say anything but wanted to leave. The practitioner held her hand and asked, "Would you stay a little longer? Did you memorize what I told you?" The woman nodded but did not say anything. After a while, the woman stood up and was about to walk away. The practitioner was surprised, "Are you feeling better and able to walk now?" The woman said, "Yes, I am all right now and want to go home." The practitioner said, "Wait, you have not quit the CCP yet. How about giving me a pseudonym?" The woman said, "All right, let's use such-and-such name." Then she left happily.

So many people are waiting for us to save them. And many times, such chances have been lost because of our fear. I know a practitioner who clarifies the truth very well and can ask others to quit the CCP under all circumstances. Every day, several people quit the CCP because of his truth-clarification efforts. Through his truth-clarification, twelve people have started to practice Falun Gong. He told me, "Dafa has given us such great wisdom. If we were not saving sentient beings, would we still be Dafa disciples?" I hope that other practitioners who have attachments of fear like me can really dig out the roots of their fear and improve in the Fa so that we can all join the truth-clarification efforts to save sentient beings.
