Persevere When Saving People, and See It Through to the End
(Clearwisdom.net) There is a folk saying: "To help a person, one should help him to the end; to save a person, one should save him to the end." That is to say, as a human being we should have compassion. When doing a good deed, we should persevere in doing so, and we should see it through to the end. As Dafa practitioners who carry the mission of helping Master rectify the Fa and save sentient beings, we should set higher standards for ourselves. We should view the Fa as teacher while doing well the three things, and we should seize every available moment. We should widely spread the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party, and we should help people withdraw from the CCP. We should do everything possible to save people. My personal experience is that if we can clarify the truth deeply, persuade people to destroy the CCP factors, dissolve the CCP's evil spirit which manipulates people, help clean up the environment in their homes, and help them renounce the CCP on the spiritual level, that will save a person completely. This will truly meet the standard as Master required of us, "...to do better, to be more efficient, to have a greater impact, and to save more people." (Fa Teaching at the U.S. Capital)
I visited a relative several days ago. His neighbor suffered from sequela related to cerebral hemorrhage. He had been bedridden for two months, had difficulty walking, and needed total care. I bought some gifts, and went to visit him. He was very depressed, and cried over his misery. I began to counsel him and tell him about Dafa, but he shook his head in disbelief. I began sending forth righteous thoughts, and went from light conversation to more difficult topics. I went from the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party to the staged Self-Immolation in Tiananmen Square. I talked about the idea of Heaven eliminating the CCP and the huge wave of people withdrawing from the CCP. I finally untied the knots in his mind, and he stated that he wanted to quit the CCP and its related organizations.
I noticed that there were several pictures of evil CCP leaders hanging on the walls of his home. I suggested to his family that they burn the pictures, but they were reluctant. I said that I would explain to them the reasons, and then they could make an informed choice. I told them that I had heard from a man of superior attainment, who stated that the CCP in another dimension is an evil red dragon. I explained to them that it indulges in blood, and that is why the CCP worships the color red, and that Mao, Deng, and Jiang are all animals reincarnated into the human world to disturb this dimension. I asked them, "What else is there that you cannot give up?" Shortly after this, his family took all the CCP pictures, books, newspapers, and other related material out and burned them. Before I left, I told him and his family to repeat the words, "Falun Dafa is good," and that if they were sincere, there would be miracles.
I spent two days clarifying the truth among several villages. Before heading home, I went to visit my relative's neighbor again. When I walked into his yard, I saw him practicing exercises, and his family surrounded me in delight. He told me, "After you left that day, I had a strange dream. I saw a hand go into the right side of my brain and take out a stone the size of a fist. It was bloodstained, and after that I felt so comfortable! After I woke up, the limbs on my left side had returned to normal. I shouted in delight, 'Falun Dafa is great, it is Falun Dafa that saved me!'"
Many people heard about this miracle of a paralyzed person regaining the ability to walk overnight, and came to visit him. When he told them the story, they were all amazed, and asked me for truth-clarification materials. I explained more to them, and gave them all the materials that they wanted. I also persuaded a dozen people to quit the CCP.
From this event I realized that when we put down human notions and have strong righteous thoughts, and clarify the truth with a pure heart, the amazing power of Dafa will express itself and truly save a person.
This is my understanding at my level; please kindly point out any shortcomings.
