A Great Opportunity to Clarify the Truth About Falun Dafa By an overseas practitioner
(Clearwisdom.net) Dafa practitioners living outside of China have become busier and busier. Looked at superficially, the things we do seem magnificent. Tangible projects are easier to execute. Meanwhile, consistent effort and commitment to long term truth clarification projects receive less and less attention and support. Some were even set aside for a long time. The "April 25" event and the upcoming "World Falun Dafa Day" are great opportunities for us to strengthen our truth-clarification initiatives.
Clarifying the truth is a powerful and direct approach to validate the wonders of Falun Dafa and expose the evilness of the persecution. It continuously provides people with an opportunity to be saved. My personal understanding is that this is the reason the main body of Dafa practitioners - practitioners in Mainland China - have focused on clarifying the truth (besides exhorting people to withdraw from the CCP organizations) in recent years.
People ignorant of the truth, especially when they are being poisoned by the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) lies, tend to have a wrong impression of the basic truth. For example, they might be afraid to learn or resist hearing the facts about the "April 25 Appeal;" or they might be unaware how Falun Dafa has flourished around the world, and might not understand what Dafa practitioners stand for. When people realize the evilness of the persecution, their knowing side immediately understands the wonders of Dafa and wants to know more, such as what kind of people practitioners are, and what one can gain from the practice.
For people who are tired of the evil lies, in order for them to live a meaningful life and understand the true meaning of life, the best "spiritual food" would be access to information and materials manifesting the wonders of Dafa. Human beings are the highest life form on Earth. Merely having one's basic needs met in terms of food or living cannot satisfy one's spiritual needs. Many non-practitioners had recently come to the Tianti Bookstore to buy books. More and more people are visiting the Falun Dafa website and the Minghui/Clearwisdom website. This is also a manifestation of the overall progress of the Fa-rectification in the world.
Furthermore, we have accumulated many positive truth-clarification strategies over time, including face-to-face discussions with people, writing articles and hosting television programs. We have become more effective, and more people understand us and want to know more. This is partly related to the positive impact of the Divine Performing Arts (DPA) shows worldwide.
My personal understanding is that the DPA performance is professional, and people can easily accept it. While enjoying a show, people automatically and willingly accept the truth. Certainly, the DPA performances use the medium of dance, music, costumes, other visual effects and historic vignettes related to divine culture. Non-performing Dafa practitioners use articles, pictures, television programs, phone calls and the Internet to clarify the truth. We can still learn from the thinking processes and techniques inherent in the DPA performances and clarify the truth more effectively, thus offering more people salvation.
I am writing this article to remind overseas practitioners to take the opportunity to clarify the truth. Every project has a deadline. In my opinion, Fa-rectification period Dafa disciples' truth clarification efforts also have a deadline, a stricter one. As Master reminds us, when the Fa rectifies the human world, people will no longer have an opportunity to interview Fa-rectification Dafa practitioners, listen to them about Dafa's wonders, nor hear the truth of the dissemination of the Fa and the facts about the "April 25 Appeal." In my opinion, it will be impossible for Fa-rectification Dafa practitioners to return to the human world to write articles, take photographs and validate the grandeur of Dafa with their own experience. These opportunities will be gone as time goes on.
