Saving People and Completing the Sacred Missions That Teacher Bestowed Upon Us
(Clearwisdom.net) Since Teacher's "Fa Teaching at the U.S. Capital" was published, I have been thinking about the two grand words, "saving people." I enlightened to how important "saving people" is in Teacher's eyes. Harmonizing what Teacher wants is the duty of practitioners--a deemed duty we must fulfill. What I understood Teacher to say about "Gods among humans" was not correct in the past. I thought it referred to practitioners walking their paths toward godhood. Now, I have begun to relate it to high-level beings, who came down to this human world with intentions of obtaining the Fa, assisting Teacher in rectifying the Fa and being saved by the Fa. A powerful feeling came forth as I thought about this. I then felt the profoundness of the inner meanings of "saving people."
"Then which beings are to be cherished during the Fa-rectification period, this critical point in history? Those with full confidence in Dafa and with corresponding actions; these lives are precious. So I feel that whether you look at this from my perspective or in the context of Dafa disciples' responsibilities, we all have this duty and should take up this task." ("Fa Teaching at the U.S. Capital")
Teacher cherishes those high-level beings that came down to the human world and got lost just like us. He doesn't want to leave anyone behind. Therefore, why should we be hesitant and waiver? There is only one thing left in my heart now. To save people, and who to save?
Teacher began arranging for people with predestined relationships to come to me, after I set my heart right. The amazing thing is that when someone agrees to do the "three withdrawals" (withdrawing from the Communist Party, the Communist Youth League, and the Young Pioneers), their faces change completely and appear to shine with Buddha's light. Seeing this for the first time, I was shocked and became more motivated to help people with the three withdrawals. I wasn't sure who to save before, but now I feel I should save anyone I run into. For example, a couple of alumni came to my office to talk about a classmate of ours who killed himself making money after he retired. The taller alumni believed that how much you make in your lifetime is set. Hearing this, I began to think that Teacher arranged for this person to come to see me. Our conversation naturally moved to Falun Gong and we were talking about what we have seen or experienced during the past decade. I mentioned the three withdrawals, and they both gladly agreed to quit. They said that they were glad they met with me again. What shocked me was that both of them completely changed. They no longer appeared to be the ordinary people I just saw, but rather appeared god-like and Buddha-like. Buddha's Fa is boundless. Teacher is extremely compassionate.
Yesterday, I ran into a lady on the street who recently moved into our residential area. We chatted as we walked together. I learned that prior to July 20, 1999, when the persecution of Falun Gong began, she did business in Beijing. Her husband was responsible for picking up Falun Gong practitioners. I mentioned the three withdrawals to her and she told me that both she and her husband believed in Buddha. A fortuneteller used to tell her that she had predestined relationship with Buddha. I told her that Teacher asked us to save those who came down from high-levels. We tried to think of an alias for her to use for the three withdrawals. I said, "How about lotus? Are you okay with that?" She smiled. Then I added, "How about if we pick 'righteous' for your husband?" She laughed cheerfully and loudly. Then, she told me these two words were the name she and her husband came up with for their future baby. She also asked me for a copy of the book Zhuan Falun.
