Clarifying the Facts to Local Government Officials
(Clearwisdom.net) Greetings, revered Master! Greetings, fellow practitioners!
Master said, "Validate the Fa with rationality, clarify the truth with wisdom, spread the Fa and save people with mercy--this is establishing the mighty virtue of an Enlightened Being." ("Rationality," Essentials for Further Advancement II) With Master's compassionate care, I have been following these requirements. After I managed to leave the detention center, I was closely watched by the authorities. Of course, I did not accept this. I understood that I could not allow the police to harass or monitor me. I needed to proactively seek them out, use my strong righteous thoughts and capabilities to suppress the evil, clarify the facts to those controlled by the evil, and save them. As a result, I often visited the local Political and Legal Committee, the 610 Office, and community organizations. I would like to share a few experiences of truth clarification and validating the Fa. Please point out anything incorrect.
- With compassion and dignity, validate the Fa and clarify the facts with rationality
Before I retired, I worked in a government agency. I used this connection to clarify the facts to several government employees, since I knew them relatively well. The Political and Legal Committee and the 610 Office are the hubs of the persecution. Dealing with them requires very strong righteous thoughts and compassion. Once, I was chatting with the director of the 610 Office, and the deputy secretary of the Political and Legal Committee walked in. He asked what I was doing there, and I said I came to ask for my salary, which had not been paid. He said, "Go to your Master and ask for it. You are following him. Why are you asking us to pay your salary?" I felt sad to hear this. The sentient beings were really in grave danger because of the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) brainwashing and pollution. I knew I needed to save him. I told him, "We worked together here before and were friends. This is our predestined relationship. That's why I am telling you not to say something like that. This is not good for you. I hope you can be saved. Do you know what happened to the officials who persecuted others during the Cultural Revolution? Do you know where the perpetrators of the Tiananmen Square Massacre are detained now?" He walked away without saying anything. Since then, every time he sees me, he greets me nicely.
I always sent forth righteous thoughts the whole way there when visiting the Political and Legal Committee and the 610 Office. When I talked with the officials there, I also sent righteous thoughts so that they could not say disrespectful things about Master and Dafa. Sometimes, the person from the 610 Office wanted to say something mean, but he could not articulate it. He said, "I am so mad at you that I don't know what to say." Sometimes he coughed continuously and turned all red, and could not speak. When he was not there, I went to other offices in the Political and Legal Committee to clarify the facts. Because I wanted to clarify the facts, Master arranged everything for me. The conversation flowed naturally, and the government employees were all willing to listen. Once when I was visiting the Political and Legal Committee, the director of the 610 Office said to me with malice, "You shouldn't come here so much from now on. If I am not here, you are not allowed to visit other offices." I said to him with a smile, "Why is that?" He said, "Why? Don't you know? This is a law enforcement agency, not a place for you to promote Falun Dafa. You walk into every office telling them Falun Dafa is great. The Political and Legal Committee has become your home. You think you can just go into any office you want? That doesn't work. If you have something to take care of here, you should do it quickly and leave. You can't just hang around here." Of course, I continued to clarify the facts with wisdom. They also stopped harassing and monitoring me. Once someone reported me to the 610 Office when I was clarifying the facts. I heard about it and went to the 610 Office. After I clarified the facts to them, they told me that I should go home.
- Treating others with compassion, clarify the facts with wisdom
The deputy CCP secretary in our region has been controlled by the evil and has illegally arrested a large number of Falun Gong practitioners. After returning from the labor camp, I saw that his name was on the practitioners' calling list of people who have been perpetrators of the persecution. I thought this was a perfect opportunity to clarify the facts to him. When I was talking to him, phone calls kept on coming in. I asked him what was happening, and he said, "Falun Gong practitioners have been calling my home phone, office phone, cell phone, and my wife's phone non-stop. I have no peace. If I did something wrong, you can talk to me. But don't do this." This showed the Fa's power in shocking the evil, as well as Master's great compassion. I told him that Falun Gong practitioners did this to save him, and that we hoped he would treat Falun Gong practitioners with kindness and stop doing evil. If he did this, things would turn better. I told him that if he had any questions, he could talk to me. Since then, he has acted with more constraint in the persecution.
The Political and Legal Committee secretary has done many evil things against Falun Gong practitioners. His family members have suffered tribulations as a result. For example, his child is always ill. Because the secretary did not enlighten to it, his physical health declined, too. He visited many major hospitals but did not get better. At first, it was really difficult to clarify the facts to him. As time went on, I spent more and more time in his office, explaining to him the wonders of Falun Dafa, its popularity, and the principle of good being rewarded with good and evil receiving retribution. When I saw that he began accepting it gradually, I told him how to deal with the CCP's orders and how not to persecute Dafa practitioners. Although he didn't say anything, I saw that he followed my advice. Every time I saw him, I clarified the facts a little more. Before the Olympics this year, I asked if he had arrested any practitioners. He said, "The situation is pretty tough. Take care of yourself." I told him not to arrest practitioners and to try to protect them. He said, "If my supervisor gives me an order, there is nothing I can do about it." I said, "It is the CCP, not you, who is persecuting us. You and I don't have any grudges against each other. The fact that we got to know each other shows that we have a predestined relationship. That means I need to be responsible to you and tell you the truth. Otherwise when disasters strike, I will feel that I have done you wrong." He nodded. I said, "Do you want to quit the CCP?" He said, "I don't think that's possible. I do work for it after all." I said, "If you just have the thought of quitting the CCP [that would be enough]. No one else needs to know." He didn't say anything. During the Olympics, no practitioners in our area were arrested. After the Games, he saw me and smiled at me. He said, "My illness is healed. Now I am really healthy." Because there were others present, I just said, "Just do well, and your child will get better, too."
These are just a few things I encountered while validating the Fa and clarifying the facts. Although I did not have any pursuit and was not attached to the results, some government officials, including people in charge, withdrew from the CCP after talking to me. My main goal is to help the people who have been deceived and used by the CCP to see the truth, so that they can be saved, while creating a better cultivation environment for ourselves.
The righteous thoughts, wisdom, and courage that I had while clarifying the facts were all given to me by Master. I only had such a wish; it was Master who made it happen. Yet our compassionate Master gave me the mighty virtue. I thank Master for his compassion and salvation. I still have many human attachments. On the path ahead, with Fa study and Master's strengthening, I will eliminate these bad factors, do well the three things, and return home with Master.
