Get Rid of Notions and Clarify the Truth Face-to-Face
(Clearwisdom.net) To clarify the truth about Falun Dafa and the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) persecution, I use various ways, such as making and distributing flyers, etc, but the main thing I do is to talk face-to-face with people.
I used to feel really shy and was not good at expressing myself, so I was very reluctant to talk in front of a group of people. Because of this, I seldom attended the meetings at which practitioners' shared their experiences. Usually, each practitioner would share his/her experiences or understanding of the Fa. I was the only person who didn't have much to say. I felt very awkward on those occasions. My disposition severely interfered with my ability to validate the Fa and clarify the truth directly to people. Teacher said in Zhuan Falun, "When it's impossible to do, you can do it." I know I must fulfill my mission to save the sentient beings who have been deceived by CCP propaganda and lies. I need to break through human notions and clarify the truth directly to people. At first, I mainly talked with sales clerks, cashiers, or people I met at bus stops. Gradually I was able to talk with people walking on the street. When I look back at what I have done, I realize that it is not hard to talk with people. "Cultivation depends on one's own efforts, while the transformation of gong is done by one's master."(Zhuan Falun). When we have the sincere heart to save people, Teacher will bring the predestined people to us.
One time, I saw a young mother and her daughter walking toward me after school. They seemed to smile at me as they passed by. A few seconds later, I realized that the mother must be a predestined person, and I should clarify the truth to her and her daughter. With this thought, I turned back and quickly caught up with them. I said, "Sister, I was walking in the other direction and suddenly realized that I have a few words I need to tell you." She looked at me cautiously. I smiled and said, "Don't worry. I am a good person. I just want to ask if you have you heard about the 'three withdrawals' to protect your safety?" She suddenly became stern and said, "Don't talk nonsense." "Please sister, just let me finish. I asked you that question because I want you to be happy. There are so many disasters and misfortunes in the world. In the future when the CCP will be eliminated by the heavens. Anyone who was ever enrolled in it, including the Youth League and Young Pioneers, will face a disaster if they don't withdraw right now. I know the facts. Though we are only talking for a moment, if I didn't tell you, I could not forgive myself if anything terrible happened to you when the CCP is eliminated. I don't mind what you think about me, I just want to give you this information. Please, immediately withdraw from the CCP, Youth League, or Young Pioneers if you are or have ever been a member."
She was obviously moved and said, "Big sister, I withdraw, I was a member of the CCP Youth League." Therefore, I helped her and her daughter withdraw from the CCP and its affiliated organizations. I also told them about the goodness of Falun Dafa and reminded them to memorize "Falun Dafa is good." Before we departed, I said, "I hope you and your daughter have a bright future." Tears came to her eyes as she said, "Thank you big sister, and best wishes for you too."
There are more occurrences like this. One day, there was a couple at the bus station. I walked up to greet them with a smile and told them about the need to withdraw from the three CCP affiliations. The young man immediately agreed to withdraw. Just then, the bus came into view. The young woman said anxiously, "Auntie hurry, please get a nickname for me to use to withdraw from the Youth League." I did, and she happily got on the bus and said, "Thank you, Aunt!"
I watched the bus disappearing in the distance, and felt happy for the young couple. Looking at the crowds of people in the buses passing by and those walking on the streets, I wondered how many of them had already withdrawn from CCP organizations. I wished that the daylight would last longer, and night time wouldn't arrive so that I could have more time to save people.
Sometimes, I met people who refused to listen when I told them about the persecution of Falun Gong. Once, there were a couple of teenagers near the bus stop. I said to the girl, "Young lady, have you heard about withdrawing from the CCP to protect your safety?" She said, "No." Then, the boy suddenly said fiercely, "Go away," and started to curse at me, not giving me a chance to speak. I silently sent forth righteous thoughts and left. I felt dramatically humiliated. I was about the same age as his mother. How could the boy treat me like that? I recalled Teacher's Fa,
"Wandering around in society is rather torturous. It must beg for food and meet different kinds of people who will scold, insult, or take advantage of it. It might encounter all kinds of things. It will treat itself as a practitioner and balance well relations with others, always maintaining and upgrading xinxing. It will not be moved by the temptations of different benefits among everyday people." (Zhuan Falun)
It is the human sentimentality of feeling wronged or of losing face. I needed to use this encounter to improve my xinxing and get rid of the attachment to sentimentality.
Would a god be moved if the same situation happened to him? The god would feel pity for the boy. After thinking of these things, my heart became compassionate and I sincerely hoped that the boy would have another opportunity to learn the truth and to make the right choice for his future. I adjusted my mind and thoughts to align with the Fa, and walked into the crowd to continue clarifying the truth.
