Overcoming Human Notions and Fear and Persuading People Online to Quit the CCP
(Clearwisdom.net) I am a housewife from Taiwan who has been married for twenty-two years. My formal education stopped with middle school. I am not only unable to read English, but also afraid of the computer. Although I have practiced Falun Gong for many years, I seldom participate in either group Fa study or share my cultivation experiences with others. I am kind of isolated and don't like to do things or express myself. I get nervous in a crowd.
Participating in an experience sharing conference and listening to other practitioners' cultivation experiences in persuading people from Mainland China to quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) made me think this could be a huge task for me. It was a "mission impossible." Nevertheless, I was a bit anxious. How come I still could not clarify the truth after so many years of cultivation and persuade people to quit the CCP? Being unable to operate a computer, I had an opportunity to attend a training class that taught me computer use and how to persuade people online to quit the CCP. Once I finished the class another practitioner helped me to install the software in my computer. Watching the computer mouse moving up and down made my mind go blank. It was too complicated. There were so many things for me to learn. I was kind of lost, felt dizzy and could not remember anything and quickly lost confidence. The other practitioner constantly encouraged me, taught me patiently how to operate the computer and came to my house many times. I could not let her down.
Master constantly reminds us not to become zealous or boast. However, the first time I succeeded to persuade an online person to quit the CCP, I was so excited that I could not sleep. I had finally done it! I encountered all kinds of interference during online truth-clarification efforts. From time to time, the person I chatted with sent me pornographic movies. I had just deleted one, and there was another one coming. That pornographic stuff was right before me. I had to turn a blind eye to it and keep myself calm, which was big test for me.
During this period, frequently chatting with one person online, I developed some sentimentality towards that person. I knew this was wrong, but I could not control myself. For a while, whenever I got online, my heart rate increased and I could not calm down. I could not continue the conversation. I was distressed. I am the Dafa practitioner during the Fa-rectification period, but I had made myself confused when I had the chance to talk to the people online about the truth and the evil CCP. I had lost many opportunities to validate the Fa and offer people salvation.
Later I sent righteous thoughts and eliminated interference during online truth-clarification efforts. Gradually my mind became calm. If I had not cultivated Dafa, I would have gotten involved in conversations on wrong topics, which could have led to unimaginable results.
Master asked us to compassionately clarify the truth. Whatever we say should touch people. When some people did not want to know the truth but only wanted to chat on other topics, I told them "As a volunteer of the Global Service Center for Quitting the CCP (GSC), time is tight and I have a great responsibility to let you know the truth. I am not paid to do this, and we are here to help you be rescued."
Some people would say bad words, and I would ask them to stop, to prevent them from making more karma that they could not possibly repay in this lifetime. Most of them would stop, to avoid making more karma. I chatted with people online using the prepared script and adding my own words, based on my online chatting experience. I helped 1370 people to successfully quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations during a seven-month online truth-clarification effort.
I also told my online friends: "I have practiced Falun Gong for five years. I am healthy. Falun Gong has spread to eighty countries in the world, and about a hundred million people practice Falun Gong. We practitioners do not struggle for recognition or personal gain, do not act violently, and do not get involved in politics. We give up and avoid bad habits. The CCP orchestrated the so-called, Tiananmen Self-Immolation to try to frame Falun Gong. The CCP has misled you and tried many ways to eradicate Falun Gong. Nevertheless, Falun Gong is welcomed and recognized worldwide."
I had hesitated in the past to learn new computer skills and thought they were hard to handle and that I could not do it. Now I realize as long as a Dafa practitioner is willing, we can handle anything.
