We Must Not Allow Human Notions to Interfere with Saving Sentient Beings
(Clearwisdom.net) The process of clarifying the truth is equivalent to getting rid of our attachments to fear. I actively clarify the truth every day whenever I go out to buy food. I realized recently that I usually only speak with certain people that I would like to talk to. Due to this human notion, I have missed a lot of people who might have a great predestined relationship with me.
There was one occasion Teacher gave me a hint through a dream. My daughter, who is also a practitioner, and I were in our village. We clarified the truth to whomever we met. There was a man who was my elementary school classmate. He didn't choose to listen to the truth and walked away. I then kept running after him and trying to clarify the truth to him. When I woke up, I was still calling his name.
Teacher said in "Let Go of Human Attachments and Save the World's People":
"For a Fa-rectification period Dafa disciple, personal liberation is not the goal of cultivation: when you came, saving sentient beings was your great aspiration, and that is the responsibility and mission history has bestowed upon you in Fa-rectification. Thus great numbers of beings are to be saved by you. Dafa disciples, don't forsake the magnificent responsibility that has been bestowed upon you in Fa-rectification, and even less should you disappoint those beings, as you are now their only hope for entering the future. "
I have recognized this attachment and decided to get rid of it by doing the three things well, as Teacher asked us to do. I overcome my human notions whenever I go out to buy food. Here are two cases:
1. After clarifying the truth to a woman selling tofu, she quit the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) immediately. Then I went to a man who sells watermelons and clarified the truth to him and his son. The father was a member of the CCP, and they both withdrew from the Party after I clarified the truth to them.
There was another woman who sells persimmons who kept following me. I thought to myself, "She is also a sentient being, waiting for me to save her." So I told her the truth about Dafa. After she learned the truth, she also quit the Party and also persuaded her two sons to quit the CCP as well. She also asked me for two Dafa amulets for her sons. I noticed a policewoman nearby and thought surely she had spotted me. Then I reminded myself that I am protected by Teacher's fashen at all times and I was no longer fearful.
2. There was another case when I clarified the truth to a man who sells watermelons. He brought with him his daughter and three sons. Their ages were all around ten. In the beginning, I told his daughter about the corruption of the CCP and the magnificence of Dafa. She withdrew from the Chinese Young Pioneers when she learned the truth. Then the little girl and I together told her father and brothers about Dafa. They all withdrew from the Party too. When I gave them the Dafa amulets, they were all eager to receive them. This incident helped me to better understand the magnificence of Dafa and the true impact and meaning of clarifying the truth. It also let me know how precious a life can be after learning the truth.
I hope practitioners who are not able to step out and clarify the truth learn to do so. Don't let your human notions get in the way, and instead save the world's people. We should grasp this last precious time and do well the missions Teacher gave us. Don't miss this once-in-a-million-year opportunity! Instead, follow Teacher's guidance home.
