Ten Years of Minghui Has Brought Light and Wisdom All Around
(Clearwisdom.net) A person who learned the facts about the persecution once said, "There is not another website like the Minghui (Clearwisdom) website. It is not commercialized. In addition, it has the ability to galvanize people."
As a local contact person for the Minghui/Clearwisdom in Mainland China, my most important understanding is that my role entails a great sense of responsibility and sacredness. Although I called it a "role," I wasn't appointed by anyone, nor do I direct others as to what to do. It is completely voluntary, and my choice was made based on my conscience. I am meeting my responsibility as well as fulfilling an ancient vow.
As cultivators who focus on Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, we have not only been given better health and moral values, but have also been shown the true meaning of life. That is why we use the kind thoughts of cultivators to handle everything we encounter. We will not sit back when fellow practitioners are illegally arrested, tortured or killed. We will not just leave millions of deceived Chinese people on the verge of a catastrophe. We will stop the evildoers from persecuting good people. This is also our compassion towards them.
Holding this one simple, solemn thought, I have told more practitioners how to access Minghui/Clearwisdom website, brought more "truth-clarification materials" to non-practitioners, ensured the smooth flow of information between Minghui/Clearwisdom and Mainland China, and delivered first-hand persecution information to Minghui/Clearwisdom quickly and accurately.
Under the harsh environment of Mainland China, the work has been exhausting and difficult. However, when I saw that the persecution was continuing and that the public was deceived, I felt that I could overcome any difficulty. No matter how much we did, it was not enough. We must persist, for this is our historic responsibility.
I think that because everything about Minghui is selfless and that it asks for nothing in return, there have been many miracles involved with our work. For example, sometimes the Chinese government censors overseas websites, but we could still access the Minghui website. Another example is that when we were visiting an area we had not been before to verify a persecution report, although we did not have the detailed address, we just pressed a random buzzer in front of an apartment building, and it was the unit we were looking for. Such amazing things happened quite often.
During this special historic period, Minghui/Clearwisdom provides guidance and a platform for sharing, for the improvement of Falun Gong cultivators all over the world. Practitioners from over 100 countries form one pure body. Today, in Mainland China, many Falun Gong practitioners, including seniors in their 70s, elementary school children, farmers, and housewives who had never used a computer before, can and do access the Minghui website every day.
Minghui has helped millions of Chinese people learn the facts and awaken from the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) lies. They have chosen a wonderful future for themselves. Minghui's pure force encourages more and more people to do good.
One young man became depressed because his mother was arrested for practicing Falun Gong and for exposing the facts of the persecution. He said that the CCP was ruthless and felt helpless about his mother's situation. But he had the habit of checking the Minghui website often. There, he read the report about the persecution against his family members and the rescue efforts by overseas practitioners. He said, "Minghui is truly great. The reports are very detailed. They even have photos of my family." He was touched that so many practitioners were paying attention to what was happening to his mother. He was so encouraged that he eventually testified in court as to the benefits Falun Gong has brought to his family and the brutality of the persecution.
Once, I was clarifying the facts to a middle-aged man when he suddenly said, "How come the Minghui website knows everything?" It turned out that he had seen a Minghui brochure, where he read the story of a Falun Gong practitioner being tortured to death during the Beijing Olympics. He said to me emotionally, "Did you know he was my neighbor? Everything in this brochure was accurate. Minghui got the details right even for things happening so far away in Mainland China."
A practitioner was illegally detained in a brainwashing center beyond her term. Minghui/Clearwisdom publicized her story. Within a few days, the guards at the brainwashing center called their supervisors and said, "We can't do this anymore! There are too many letters coming in. The whole world knows about this now!" That afternoon, the practitioner was released.
A police official at a brainwashing center was in charge of monitoring Minghui/Clearwisdom as a part of his job. One day he told a visiting official from the 610 Office, "Actually Falun Gong does not have any secrets. Everything about them is publicly available on the Minghui website." Gradually, he distanced himself from the persecution. Now the brainwashing center has been closed.
In another case, the director of a detention center was extremely brutal in the persecution. Her name was publicized on Minghui/Clearwisdom. She received many phone calls from within and outside of China, asking her to stop doing wrong. She was shocked and changed her behavior. She told a Falun Gong practitioner, "I will stop doing bad things. Could you help remove my name from the Minghui website?"
In the last ten years, Minghui has indeed brought light and wisdom all around, demonstrating Dafa's mighty power and uprightness. More and more people with predestined relationships have been saved.
Although I have not met the practitioners working on Minghui outside of China, I would like to express my greetings to them. It is the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance that bring us together and allow us to work seamlessly as one body.
I would also like to tell those who have yet to learn the facts about the persecution: The CCP has persecuted Falun Gong for an entire decade. During this decade, the moral values of society have greatly declined. People are not able to tell right from wrong. Everyone is a victim in this situation. Clearly, the persecution is failing. Life is short. How many decades do we have? We should give ourselves the opportunity to see the truth. I hope that everyone can read the truth-clarification materials. We are not trying to change anyone's faith. We just don't want them to leave with any regrets.
