(Clearwisdom.net) Master asked us to do the three things, study the Fa well, send forth righteous thoughts, and clarify the truth,

"...to find ways to do better, to be more efficient, to have a greater impact, and to save more people." ("Fa Teaching at the U.S. Capital")

I went from being fearful to being at ease when validating the Fa. In the process, those who learned the facts about Falun Gong frequently became disseminators of the facts.

I was subjected to persecution for appealing to higher authorities on behalf of Falun Dafa. Upon my return, my friends, relatives and coworkers could not understand me and criticized and ridiculed me. I became afraid to explain the facts. A good friend of my wife's grumbled right in my face. Cornered, I forgot all my usual fears. What followed was three hours of truth clarification, driven by a strong field of righteous thoughts. She never refused any truth materials thereafter.

One older teacher dressed in worn-out clothes, and many people looked down on him. I often tried to talk to him. Then I started telling him about the magnificence of Dafa and the persecution. When he learned that handing out truth-clarifying materials can change people's attitudes toward Dafa, he asked for some himself and rode a worn-out bicycle in the middle of the night to distribute information until dawn.

I met a student named Yu by chance. The first time I tutored her I felt there was something especially impure in her. I started telling her casual stories most students are interested in, such as about extraterrestrial life and unsolved mysteries, etc. Then I told her cultivation stories from ancient times. Finally I told her the truth about Dafa. She was quite receptive. After she agreed to the three-withdrawals (withdrawing from the CCP and its affiliated organizations), she wrote a "solemn declaration." On one occasion she brought her best friend over and asked me to clarify the truth about Falun Gong for her. The classmate held the Dafa amulet (1) in gratitude with both hands and said, "I am so fortunate," with tears in her eyes. But there was still something wrong with Yu. Compassionate Master arranged a good opportunity for me to meet her mother, so I explained Yu's condition. She said she had practiced other Gong (black magic) for several years. I went to her home and got her to throw away symbols relating to those other practices that she had placed in the home. After this, Yu improved a lot. Her mother also brought other predestined people to listen to me explain the facts.

At a time when my grandmother had not eaten for five days and relied on infusions for life support, family members were already preparing for her funeral. When I learned about this, I first sent righteous thoughts at home. Grandma was already in a coma when I saw her. Former CCP leader Mao's picture was next to her bed. I told the people in the room that it is bad luck to display pictures of dead people. He led so many movements and murdered so many people. These wronged souls will not forgive him. This can only bring misfortune to the family.

Then I talked about prophecies, my personal experience of practicing Falun Gong, and stories of gods and Buddhas. I intentionally raised my voice so Grandma could hear. A little over an hour later, Grandma opened her eyes. The family members became more interested in my stories. A relative on Grandma's maternal side was holding a Falun Gong amulet and said excitedly, "I was about to go home yesterday and come back in a couple of days. But it started snowing yesterday. Looks like the gods are keeping me here. (I know Master was saving her). Give me a few more amulets. I want my three sons, daughters-in-law, grandsons, and granddaughters to each have one." Many of my Grandma's relatives declared their three withdrawals.

Fan is one of my students. She always asks questions. I clarified the facts with her, first relating stories of Buddhas, Taos, and gods. She did not want her good friend, Tian, to be left out, and she found all sorts of reasons to have Tian meet with me. After watching a truth clarification video, she brought two of her good friends over and asked me to talk to them. I played the video for them. One of them asked her family members to declare their three withdrawals. The other one had me meet her cousin. The cousin also brought along people that she knew to listen to the facts.

Tian later told me that she was on the phone for two hours with one of her distant friends. Tian also tried to find ways for me to meet one of her family members, a Bureau chief, as well as her grandfather, who was once the Bureau chief, and her grandmothers.

One of my classmates started a company, and I took the opportunity to clarify the truth to his employees. My classmate supported me. Although there were only a few people, by Master's arrangement the knowing group subsequently left, and another group came. After a while, his business picked up.

My wife invited the mother of her good friend to our home. This woman was partially paralyzed. I started to clarify the truth of Dafa to her. She was a little scared and would not listen. I sent forth righteous thoughts, and then told her that a friend gave me a video that, after having viewed it, would benefit the sick. She took a look and said, "It is Falun Gong. I am not watching." I asked her what she was afraid of. "It can only do you good to know more." My wife and I sat by her. I sent righteous thoughts the whole time. She asked after she finished watching, "Do you have more? I want to see more."

The sentient beings all have their knowing side. When they truly learn the truth, they become truth disseminators themselves.

The above are some of my own experiences. I hope that we can all be diligent together.

(1) Amulet - In China, practitioners sometimes "clarify the truth" by giving people something small to wear or cherish, bearing a few words reminding them of the goodness of Dafa.
