Face-to-Face Truth Clarification Effort Results in Several People Quitting the CCP
(Clearwisdom.net) I believe in Master and Dafa. Master has made arrangements for people to come to me one after another, and I have talked to them about the persecution and the facts about Dafa, which has caused them to quit the CCP. I could feel Master's presence beside me as I talked to these people.
I constantly learn from my experiences so as to increase the effectiveness of asking people to quit the CCP. As I am offering people salvation, I don't feel tired. In a six-month period I have convinced more than a thousand people to quit the CCP by clarifying the truth to them face-to-face.
"Today's people are really hard to save. [It seems as though] they'll listen only if what you tell them is in line with their ideas, and they'll listen only if you talk to them in a way that they like. In other words, if you want to save them, they have conditions for you to do so." ("Teaching the Fa at the 2004 International Fa Conference in New York")
If as a good teacher at school you want to provide students with the best education, you have to prepare yourself well first before you can teach the class well. You have to thoroughly understand the subject matter. As Fa-rectification disciples, we are offering people salvation and have greater responsibilities than a school teacher. Therefore, I review my Fa-rectification experience after each face-to-face encounter. I try to think hard about what worked well and not so well for each person so that I can do better next time.
I think that the most basic principles for truth clarification are a firm belief in Master and Dafa and having strong righteous thoughts. Another one is to seek the best approach to help people understand and to constantly improve. I have convinced more than a thousand people from outside of my workplace, and none of them reported me to the authorities. One person who was a co-worker did report me, and this happened because of my omission, because my approach was not based on the Fa. Strengthened by Master and fortified with righteous thoughts from fellow practitioners, I was able to overcome this interference.
During face-to-face truth clarification, I often greet the other person warmly first. If my conversation partner was a CCP member, I would talk about the CCP's corruption and then bring up the subject of withdrawing from the CCP. Most of them could accept what I talked about.
I once met a young anti-riot policeman. I told him that Falun Gong practitioners are good people, and karmic retribution often befalls those who persecute Falun Gong. He told me that he did not want to do anything against Falun Gong, but did not have a choice. I asked, "You must be a CCP member." He said, "Yes, I am." I told him that Heaven would soon eliminate the CCP, and if he would not withdraw his membership, he would be eliminated along with the CCP. He later withdrew from the CCP and thanked me. At that moment I felt deeply,
"Mercy can melt heaven and earth into spring
Righteous thought can save people of the world."
("Fa Rectifies the Cosmos," Hong Yin Volume II)
When I told the facts to a person at work, I was confident that I could convince him to withdraw from the CCP. I had taught his son for a year in middle school. I operated from the standpoint of an ordinary person instead of from the basis of the Fa. The evil took advantage of my omission and had this person report me to the officials at work. The next day, I received phone calls at home from my workplace and the local police station. Other Falun Gong practitioners and I sent righteous thoughts. Strengthened by Master and helped by fellow practitioners' righteous thoughts, I eliminated the evil elements in other dimensions. The police officers soon stopped calling me.
This experience made me feel the power of righteous thoughts, the effects of sending righteous thoughts as a group, and the constant strengthening from Master. As long as we send righteous thoughts, we should be safe.
Falun Gong practitioners are still under the CCP's persecution. Master entrusted us with the sacred task of offering people salvation. I have a great deal of energy to accomplish this task and feel a great deal of responsibility. I will continually improve in my efforts to help people withdraw from the CCP and be worthy of Master's trust.
These are my personal experiences. Please kindly help me see any shortcomings I may have.
