Reflections After Seeing Lists of Those Who Have Withdrawn from the Chinese Communist Party and Its Affiliated Organizations
(Clearwisdom.net) Teacher told us in "My Thanks to Sentient Beings Who Have Sent Greetings:"
"I would like to tell you: Dafa disciples are the sole hope of salvation for the beings in each region and each nation. Cherishing what they are doing amounts to cherishing yourselves!"
These are Teacher's compassionate words to sentient beings. Practitioners validating Dafa and saving sentient beings demonstrate the truth of these words!
I am responsible for collecting and posting on-line, lists of those who have withdrawn from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and affiliated organizations in my local area. The lists sent by practitioners are records that reflect their tremendous efforts to save sentient beings. It is also a reflection of how Dafa compassionately saves sentient beings. Each time I post the lists on-line, I am happy for those people who chose a bright future for themselves. I am also happy about the compassionate actions of fellow practitioners.
One year ago, practitioner A, who I have regular contact with, sent me several such lists. One of the lists contained more than 100 names and was written very neatly. This caught my attention, and from time to time I noticed other lists that came with the same handwriting. I realized that it was organized and re-written by one particular practitioner. Recently, I asked practitioner A to give me some information about this practitioner. In the past, I had never asked for any information about other practitioners. When practitioner A told me the details, I was very touched.
Actually, as it turned out, she is a practitioner from a poor village. She only went to school for a couple of years and did not get much education. Due to financial difficulties, she went into the city to seek a job. She cultivates herself diligently and does the three things very well. After she helped many of her co-workers to quit the CCP, she returned to the countryside to help the villagers quit as well. This practitioner collects the names of those that she and two other practitioners helped to quit the CCP. She then sends them on to be published on-line.
After hearing this, I took out the list that was just received from this practitioner. While reading the list and thinking about this, I was in tears.
Her handwriting was not smooth and not of standard official script, but every character was written carefully and neatly. I suddenly recalled Teacher's words:
"Cursive-style calligraphy is written in a state in which a person is indulging his negative side and his notions are dominating. I think it's good to write neatly and clearly. Since characters are passed down to humans from Gods, doing that is being respectful to Gods." ("Teaching the Fa at the Discussion on Creating Fine Art")
I realized that this practitioner was following Teacher's instructions to cultivate herself and had disciplined herself while writing the list.
There were several corrections on the list that she wrote. These corrections were not crossed out casually, but covered over with bits of paper, and then the correction was written on top of it. Since many people quit the CCP with their real names, oftentimes there are some difficult characters in the names. To help us recognize them, she adds additional notes where they are needed.
The more I read her lists, the more I felt her seriousness and steadfastness. I thought about myself. While writing letters or on other occasions, my handwriting was often messy. I felt very guilty. The lists she sent were exam sheets a practitioner from the countryside wrote with her heart and submitted to Teacher. The list's appearance was beautiful, and so was the content. It was written with her sincere heart.
I could not help but praise her in my heart:
Living in poverty, she never forgot to save others;
Tired after work, but she never forgot to cultivate diligently;
Although not highly educated, she never forgot to be rigorous;
Every moment, in every situation, she never forgot to cultivate her heart.
I saw lots of precious characteristics from this practitioner - compassion, minding every detail, and diligence. The most precious thing is that she always remembered Teacher's words in her heart,
"Examine each and every deed,
Accomplishing is cultivating."
