We Must Intensify Our Efforts to Clarify the Truth and Save Sentient Beings as We Approach the Final Stage
(Clearwisdom.net) I noticed that there was an incorrect notion about clarifying the truth and persuading people to quit the three Communist Party organizations (the "three withdrawals," quitting the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), the Young Pioneers, and the Communist Youth League) among practitioners around my area. I would like to share an incident that happened to me to call everyone's attention to the fact that as Dafa practitioners, we should never let down our guard and slacken our efforts to clarify the truth and persuade people to quit the three Party organizations.
A while back, I heard a veteran practitioner mentioning that there were very few people who had not heard about the truth of Falun Gong and the ongoing movement of the three withdrawals. Wherever he started talking, just about everyone knew about quitting the three organizations and the facts about Falun Gong. There was even a practitioner who said she had stopped distributing flyers because by now, anyone who deserved to know the truth already knew about it, and giving truth pamphlets to those who did not deserve to know the truth was a waste of time and might even be dangerous. She thought it was not safe since the evil is now desperate towards the final stage.
Two days ago, I went to see a neighbor on the first floor and intended to persuade them to make the three withdrawals. Three weeks ago I told her the wonderful nature of Dafa and she even accepted the Dafa amulet I gave her. I went several times to persuade her to quit the CCP but she wasn't at home.
I did not give it much thought as I walked into her house. I thought it would be routine, that she would quit willingly like many others while we exchanged pleasantries, and another family would be saved. Yet she was shocked after it took me much effort to turn the conversation to the three withdrawals. She told me she knew nothing about this issue, and no one from her office had ever mentioned the three withdrawals. I was dumbfounded, and I tried to reason with her but was not successful in persuading her to quit. I made an excuse and left.
I felt somber after I got home. I kept wondering why she had never heard about the activities of "the three withdrawals." I went to see her because I had a preconceived notion that she knew all about it. Why did I trust that she knew about "the three withdrawals" for sure? What made me think that nowadays everyone knew about saving themselves by quitting the CCP? As a faculty member in the dean's office of an art institute, she never heard about the major event of "the three withdrawals." As one of Master's disciples, this was a huge oversight! So many more truth clarification efforts are needed. I was so sad.
I started practicing Falun Gong in 2004. If not for a practitioner who followed Master's teaching to clarify the truth to me and let me be saved, what would happen to my life? There are still many, many people who have never heard the truth about Falun Gong, and we truly need to intensify our efforts to clarify the truth to them. We must save sentient beings one at a time and assimilate to what Master has asked.
