Treating Sentient Beings As My Family Members - Persuading People to Withdraw from the CCP
(Clearwisdom.net) Teacher said,
"If we don't pay attention to our own behavior in our daily lives, everyday people will see our actions and, since they can't get to know you at a deep level such as by studying the Fa, they will just look at how you act. And it's possible that one sentence or one action of yours will make them unsavable or create a bad impression of Dafa." ("Teaching the Fa at the 2002 Fa Conference in Boston")
These words of Teacher's are burned into my mind. I always keep a friendly smile and clarify the truth in an amiable manner. I try to leave people with the impression that Falun Gong practitioners are kind and friendly. By doing so, I try to envelop people with my positive energy field. When people truly experience our compassion that comes from the Fa, they are more willing to believe what I say. So, it becomes easier to persuade them into withdrawing from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and/or its affiliated organizations. Many people often give me a smile that shows "We understand each other," after they accept what I say to them. Some feel that they have met me before. A person once said, "You are such a kind person. I feel as though I have met a divine being."
Once after I clarified the truth about Falun Gong and the CCP's persecution of Falun Gong to a fruit vendor, I told her, "Why don't you use a nickname to announce you are withdrawing from the CCP, the CCP's Youth League and the CCP's Young Pioneers on The Epoch Times website?" She held my hands and told me excitedly, "Thank you! Let's do it!" It was then that I realized that many sentient beings must be really anxious to be saved.
I have also met a medical doctor in her fifties. After I clarified the truth to her, she told me, "My entire family has withdrawn from the CCP and its affiliated organizations." I clarified the truth about the CCP in more detail. When I was about to leave, she asked me sincerely, "I would like to ask you a favor. My older brother is a member of the CCP. He and his family live in another city. Could you help them withdraw from the CCP as well? I will definitely visit my brother later and tell him the truth about the CCP." I replied, "I would like to help, but I cannot do it unless I have your brother's consent. It does not count unless he agrees to withdraw from the CCP. Why don't I take their names first? When your brother and his family agree to withdraw from the CCP, I will make the announcement for them on The Epoch Times website." She said, "Thank you. Heaven shall reward you for your good deed!"
Because of Teacher's Fa-rectification and Falun Gong practitioners' truth-clarification work, I really feel that the evil beings from other dimensions are being destroyed, as Teacher had predicted. As a result, the sentient beings now face fewer evil elements that might hinder them from accepting the truth about Falun Gong and about the CCP. One day I went downtown to clarify the truth about the CCP. I saw a large truck parked on the street. When I approached the truck, the driver had just started the engine. I waved at him standing on my toes with my face tilted upward because of the height of the truck. The driver rolled down the window and asked, "What can I do for you?" I said to him aloud, "I have come to tell you a good news. Heaven shall annihilate the CCP soon. If you withdraw from the CCP, the CCP's Youth League and the CCP's Young Pioneer Team, you will be saved from the same deadly fate. Have you joined any of the three organizations?" He confessed that he was a member of the CCP's Young Pioneers once. I said, "May you have a smooth sailing from now on. Why don't you announce to withdraw from the CCP's Young Pioneer Team using the nickname 'Smooth Sailing'?" He gladly agreed and took off with a smile.
When I persuade people to withdraw from the CCP and its two affiliated organizations, I often think of the following passage of the Fa. Teacher said,
"People with predestined relationships and those who can be saved can be made to--made to by Master's Law Bodies, righteous gods, or the immense field that Dafa has formed in the world--appear right before you in any of a range of settings, providing them with a chance to learn the truth. But you have to carry it out, and it doesn't work if you're not out there doing things." ("Teaching the Fa at the Fa Conference at the U.S. Capital")
One day, while I was clarifying the truth about the CCP in a market, someone on a bicycle hit me from behind. When he stopped, I smiled at him and said, "I am all right." He took off. I went up to him and shouted, "Just a minute please." He stopped again. I approached him and said with a smile, "Since you hit me with your bike, we must be predestined to meet each other." I started to clarify the truth about the CCP and he gladly withdrew from the CCP and its affiliated organizations.
Some people, after listening to me clarifying the truth about the CCP, tell me that they had never joined the CCP or any of the two affiliated organizations. I would reply in a friendly way, "Brother (or sister), don't say that. I went to school too. In China, almost every kid in school would be asked to join the CCP's Young Pioneers. I am sincerely thinking only of you." I would send forth righteous thoughts when I say these words: No sentient being should lie to Falun Gong practitioners. When they understand that I mean well, they normally would agree to withdraw from the CCP's Young Pioneers.
When I meet people who are stubborn, I often think of a line in Teacher's article, "Fa-Rectification Period Dafa Disciples." Teacher said,
"...while doing Fa-rectification things you bring in, through your clarifying the truth and for the consummation of your paradises, beings that can be saved." ("Fa-Rectification Period Dafa Disciples" from Essentials for Further Advancement II)
I send forth the righteous thoughts: "My sentient beings are bound to listen to my advice. They shall agree to it when I tell them to withdraw from the CCP and the CCP's affiliated organizations. This is the way it should be." When I do so and tell those stubborn people, "Why don't you withdraw from the CCP and its affiliated organizations using a nickname?" they give me their consent and say, "Okay. I will do as you wish."
In the truth-clarification process, I have been very sincere about saving sentient beings. Hence, I would make a conscious efforts in taking different approaches with different types of people. No matter how much I have done, it has always been Teacher's Law Bodies that are saving sentient beings. It has always been the mighty power of the Fa that makes things possible. During the truth-clarification process, I feel deeply Teacher's compassion, the supernormal abilities of the Fa, as well as Falun Gong practitioners' compassion, iron will and wisdom bestowed by the Fa.
During my experiences of persuading people to withdraw from the CCP and its affiliated organizations, I have come to deeply believe that I must treat sentient beings as my family members. Besides eliminating the evil beings from other dimensions hindering sentient beings from accepting the truth, I must take tangible actions to show my concern for them. The result will then be favorable.
The root of the wicked CCP has been yanked out. More and more Chinese people are asking to withdraw from the CCP and its affiliated organizations.
Once when I clarified the truth about the CCP to a woman, she told me that she had withdrawn from the CCP and its two affiliated organizations. When I asked her how she did it, she said that she went on the Internet and did it on her own. She added that no one will be willing to die with the wicked CCP. Once I met a farming woman in her fifties and clarified the truth about the CCP to her. She told me emotionally, "My entire family has withdrawn from the CCP and its affiliated organizations. My family and I swore to Heaven that we were withdrawing from the CCP and its affiliated organizations." After I told her that one must publish a statement on The Epoch Times website to make it official, she asked me to do it on behalf of her family and her.
