Seizing Opportunities to Achieve Good Results in Clarifying the Truth
(Clearwisdom.net) My employer decided to change the signs for its production section and asked me to contact a company to handle that job. After a phone call, two people came from the other company and checked the size and specifications to be used. I accompanied them to a nearby construction materials store to buy what was needed.
We drove to the market. After all the materials had been selected, they discussed payment with the store owner. When the cashier gave them change, one of them got a yuan bill with a truth-clarification message on it. I noticed that he readily held up the bill in the air, looked around, and then read aloud, "Heaven is eliminating the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). Withdraw from the CCP to have a safe life!" Other customers heard him, and many walked over to take a look. "Hey, the print is very good and very clear!" "Oh, it is real money. This kind of money has more value and more meaning!" One person asked, "Can I exchange my money for yours?" He smiled and did not respond. This truth-clarification note was handed back and forth among this group of people.
On our way back to the company, I talked with them about the truth-clarification money. One of them said, "Nowadays there is more and more truth-clarification money. I learned a lot about the "Nine Commentaries on the Chinese Communist Party" and the news about withdrawing from the CCP. People understand that truth-clarification money is for saving people. Therefore, they really cherish that kind of money." Another person continued, "I received some money with phrases on them such as 'Falun Dafa is good. Truth-Compassion-Forbearance is good.' It was printed on the money. It was written very delicately and beautifully. It was very good. Later on, a friend of mine saw it and asked me to give it to him."
Using this chance, I said, "It is lucky for those people who received truth-clarification money. It is predestined. People can learn a lot of news censored by the CCP, such as the current trend to withdraw from the CCP and its related organizations, etc. Messages on the bills like 'Seek a Safe Future by Quitting the CCP' truly express most people's wish. All those messages are kind and genuine persuasive wishes. Heaven is going to eliminate the CCP. In Guizhou, a stone has six words embedded in it that say, 'the Chinese Communist Party will perish.' It is actually a warning from heaven. Therefore, people should withdraw from CCP organizations after they understand the truth. Don't sacrifice yourself for the CCP. Withdrawing from those organizations is a wise choice that will keep one from having any regrets. This is a vitally important thing for a human being. I truly encourage each of you to not miss this good chance to withdraw from CCP and its affiliated organizations."
Later on I explained to them how to use a pen name to withdraw from the CCP organizations and about the urgency of withdrawing. In the end, they expressed their willingness to withdraw.
From this experience of persuading people to withdraw from CCP organizations, I have a deeper understanding, that is, I need to find a starting point when clarifying the truth to people. I should pay attention to the timing. Not only I should not miss the chance, but I also should use the opportunity to clarify the truth. Most of the time this makes for a better result. "Cultivation is up to you, Gong is up to the Master." So the opportunities will present themselves as long as we think about the sentient beings, hold a pure and selfless attitude, and have a willingness to do things for saving sentient beings. Sometimes it seems to be a coincidence, but actually it is arranged by Teacher. I experienced this several times while clarifying the truth to people.
Today, clarifying the truth to save sentient beings is practitioners' historic responsibility. During the process, we can see that Teacher is protecting us every step of the way. With Teacher's endless benevolence and our understanding and grasp of Fa, we can succeed.
Teacher said clearly,
"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."("Teaching the Fa at the 2002 Fa Conference in Boston").
"It's best that Dafa disciples walk their own paths righteously and not allow the evil to seize any excuse to persecute you."("Touring North America to Teach the Fa").
Finally, I hope on our path of cultivation, we will take the Fa as Teacher and be diligent at all times. We should view things from the Fa standpoint and cherish this precious predestined relationship with Dafa, seize every opportunity to save more sentient beings because "Time waits for no one!"
