Thoughts on the Death of My Older Brother

November 12, 2007 |   By a practitioner in China

(Clearwisdom.net) When I try to help people withdraw from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its related organizations, I haven't been able to achieve what Master Li said: "clarify the truth with wisdom," so I could not reach a trouble-free state. When I clarify the truth, I have been either over-anxious or did not get to the point, so my efforts have not been effective.

One day my older brother, who was a CCP Secretary, came to my home. During our conversation, I tried to persuade him to withdraw from the Party. My brother said to me, "Quit the CCP? You can't be serious. If it weren't for the CCP, would I have what I have today?" He said this in a very firm and decisive tone. Of course, what he had was merely the salary he was paid. About three months later, he suffered a heart attack and died.

About a month after my brother's death, I had a dream. In the dream, my brother complained to me and said in tears, "Why didn't you show me the book Zhuan Falun?"

We become clear about everything in the world after we die, but it will be too late. I still remember everything about the dream clearly.

Master keeps reminding us that no matter what happens to us, they are directly related to our cultivation and we should look within. I realize now that at the time when I urged my brother to quit the CCP, I didn't explain to him the principles that Master imparted to us. I didn't ask him to read the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party, and I didn't send forth righteous thoughts to clean up the evil spirits, dark minions, and rotten ghosts in his other dimensional spaces. If I had done that, maybe the situation would have been different.

Now the only thing I want to do is to firmly believe in Master, believe in Dafa, firmly and completely deny the old forces' arrangements, and strive to do the three things well that Master asks of us. We should be rational and use wisdom when we try to help everyday people quit the CCP. We should help everyday people understand the evil nature of the CCP and choose a bright future.
