(Clearwisdom.net) Even though practitioners have been handing out truth-clarifying materials for several years, we have discovered that only about three to four percent of the people have actually learned the truth. This means that we have many blind spots in clarifying the truth, because we only hand out materials in places where it is fairly easy for people to accept the truth, and we cover the same places over and over again. We fall short in clarifying the truth face-to-face and helping people withdraw from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). This article mainly focuses on some reflections about helping people withdraw from the CCP.

Letting Go of My Ego

In the past I made use of opportunities arising in my work and day-to-day life to clarify the truth. Later I sometimes used opportunities while socializing with friends. I could persuade from three to eight people to withdraw from the CCP, and that was it. Later I read such articles as "Believe in Teacher and Dafa, Touring Around to Save Sentient Beings" and "Not Entering Into Low-Level Thinking," both of which truly touched my heart and let me see my gaps.

Falun Dafa practitioners in their daily lives come across so many sentient beings who need to be saved. Since these people are deeply poisoned by the evil CCP, if we rely on them to take the initiative to quit the CCP, the task is rather difficult. If we manage to help one more person quit, then we end up saving one more sentient being. Of course, when a practitioner saves one sentient being, perhaps more than one being is ultimately saved.

I looked inward for the reason why I didn't do well. The main reason was selfishness, which I have not completely let go of. As a result, I didn't truly treasure sentient beings in my heart and therefore I didn't have the purest thought of saving sentient beings. At this special moment in history, if I don't completely use my righteous thoughts to try my best to save sentient beings, then, with a human heart, how can I do well in saving sentient beings? I have practiced the Reinforcing Supernatural Powers exercise for many years, but perhaps I still didn't manage to use the divine power that Teacher has bestowed upon us to save sentient beings. I was lagging so far behind.

After I realized the nature of my problem, I began to tell myself that when I clarify the truth, I need to let go of my human notions, let go of myself, and completely use my righteous thoughts, which are divine thoughts bestowed upon us by Teacher. Even though I can hardly see or feel anything, I believe that as long as I continue walking on my cultivation path with righteous thoughts, miracles will display themselves.

When I was able to let go of myself and use righteous thoughts to help people quit the CCP, I finally made a breakthrough, I managed to help 25 people quit within three hours. After that, I worked with fellow practitioners to clarify the truth to farmers who worked in the field. I managed to help 37 people quit. During that time, I made use of my break time to share thoughts with other practitioners in order to look within deeply and reinforce our righteous thoughts.

In Teacher's video "Fa-teaching Given to the Australian Practitioners," Teacher emphasized looking inward, so only by looking within continuously and truly letting go of ourselves can we truly save more sentient beings, and better validate Dafa.

Do Not Miss Anyone Who Has Predestined Relationship with Us

From Fa-study and practitioners' sharing, I came to realize that I should pay attention to not missing anyone who is there for me to clarify the truth to. I should save them. Some of them indeed came to me to learn the truth, and they quit the CCP after a few words. One time a practitioner was just heading out from a field and a street vendor stopped his vehicle and asked the practitioner for directions. Even though we couldn't give him the directions, we talked with him and learned he was a CCP member. After a few words of conversation, he was glad to quit the CCP.

One time when we were passing by a restaurant outside of a university campus, a male student was wandering around by the entrance. I wondered, "Was he there to hear the truth?" After I came back to talk to him, I found out that he was a CCP member, but he was happy to quit the Party using his real name. Then he promised he would pass on some flyers to his classmates. I almost missed this being.

One time a female university student wearing glasses was walking towards me. At that time, I had the thought of saving her, so I approached her and began to talk to her. While talking to her, I realized that she was very patient and was willing to learn the truth. She was a CCP member candidate and took some truth clarifying DVDs for her classmates.

Cultivate Diligently in a Solid Cultivation Environment of Helping People with the "Three Withdrawals"

Teacher clearly told us in "Teaching the Fa at the 2002 Fa Conference in Boston:"

"The old forces don't dare to oppose our clarifying the truth or saving sentient beings. What's key is to not let them take advantage of the gaps in your state of mind when you do things."

As we encourage people to withdraw from the CCP, the Youth League and the Young Pioneers, our peaceful demeanor can convince those who were deeply poisoned by the CCP that we have no interest in politics. Our interest is in saving them. With our righteous thoughts, how can they still have bad thoughts about us?

As I helped people with the "three withdrawals," my attachments, human notions, and shortcomings were continually revealed. Some attachments, which I had thought were removed or at least greatly reduced, kept popping up. This was a good thing, since I could discover these attachments so as to subdue them or eliminate them.

Sometimes I shared with my fellow practitioners about my great lack of compassion! If I had great compassion, then I would be better at saving more sentient beings. Later, as I helped people with the "three withdrawals," I came to realize that when we completely let go of ourselves and only keep one thought, of saving people, isn't this the greatest compassion we can have for sentient beings? Some practitioners plan to wait for the time when they study the Fa very well, and then go out to clarify the truth to people, because they figure that way they can do a better job in saving sentient beings.

We practitioners have encountered so many setbacks in the past because we lacked certain understandings of the Fa. We sometimes do things simply for the sake of doing them, without considering that what we do is part of our cultivation path.

Since the persecution began on July 20, 1999, practitioners have been tirelessly clarifying the truth while studying the Fa. This is a time when it is urgent to save sentient beings, and time waits for no one. We can't wait until we study the Fa very well before we begin saving sentient beings. In addition, just staying at home for the sake of studying the Fa doesn't necessarily mean that you can study the Fa well, because you can enlighten to many Fa principles only after you have applied what you've enlightened to.

Some practitioners lack confidence in themselves. They do not fully believe in Teacher and the Fa. Teacher has bestowed upon us this last chance to build up our mighty virtue, for our cultivation. We should not miss these opportunities time and time again.

I previously was a person who had difficultly expressing myself. Dafa changed me completely. A few times when I was urging others to withdraw from the CCP at a university campus, I was mistaken by the person who I was talking to for a university teacher. Actually, I am only a junior high school graduate.

As a matter of fact, helping people quit the CCP is not difficult, but eliminating our attachments is difficult. As long as we are courageous enough to step forward, we'll see "After passing the shady willow trees, there will be bright flowers and another village ahead!" (Zhuan Falun). As long as we are determined to give up our human attachments and notions and to clarify the truth with wisdom, we'll help people quit the CCP with less and less difficulty. "Cultivation depends on one's own efforts, while the transformation of gong is done by one's master." (Zhuan Falun). As long as we have the heart to save sentient beings and act on it, Teacher will give us wisdom.

Fellow practitioners, let's actively take action, seize the time to save more sentient beings, and leave no regrets for ourselves!
