The Closer to the End, the More Diligent We Should Be in Clarifying the Truth over the Internet
(Clearwisdom.net) I am a doctor of traditional Chinese medicine. I use my time between meeting with patients to study the Fa and clarify the truth about Falun Gong. Because my wife is a non-practitioner, I must balance my time well. After returning home in the evening, I will help with my children's homework and do some housework. From studying the Fa, I realize that it is a practitioner's mission to save sentient beings. Therefore, I try my best to find time for clarifying the truth about Falun Gong despite being busy at home and in the office. I persevere in doing the three things no matter what. It has been nearly six years since I started practicing Falun Gong. Rain or shine, I go to the nearby group Falun Gong practice site early in the morning to practice the Falun Gong exercises with fellow practitioners. I never miss this, even on a cold winter day or when I am alone at the group practice site.
Studying the Fa well and sending forth righteous thoughts is the foundation for clarifying the truth well, so I study the Fa diligently. If I do not continue to elevate myself on the Fa, I am likely to fall behind or feel easily discouraged when clarifying the truth over the Internet. Internet technology changes daily and there are always new things to learn. Studying the Fa well ensures that I am able to keep up with the Fa-rectification.
Based on my experience, I can persuade about 50 to 60 people to withdraw from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its two affiliated student organizations, the CCP's Youth League and the Young Pioneers League, during a full day of Internet chatting. Generally I am not that lucky to have a full day for this, because of work. I usually use the time after I finish the morning Falun Gong exercises and after work to clarify the truth on the Internet. Often times people will add me to their friends lists as soon as I log in. Many of them have never heard the truth about Falun Gong, so I have to start from scratch. Even with limited time, I can usually persuade over 20 Chinese people to withdraw from the CCP and its two affiliated organizations each day. I must thank fellow practitioners for teaching me to use these Internet chat tools and for providing me with technical assistance. Without their selfless help, I would not have been a part of this sacred project to clarify the truth to Chinese people over the Internet.
It has been over four years since I began clarifying the truth on the Internet. When I first started, I was only able to show truth-clarification messages written by fellow practitioners. Yet I was still glad to be involved because I could at least pass the truth to the people in China.
Back then I focused on the truth about the persecution of Falun Gong, especially the staged Tiananmen Self-Immolation incident that the CCP orchestrated to instigate people's hatred against Falun Gong, and to justify its ruthless persecution of Falun Gong. At the time the persecution was very rampant. I clarified the truth daily after work. Evil beings from other dimensions attempted to stop me by causing cramps in my fingers. When I sent forth righteous thoughts to eliminate the evil beings in other dimensions, the cramps disappeared. There were other forms of interference, but I always sent forth righteous thoughts to eliminate them and continued to clarify the truth. No matter how people might curse, we must be kind and peaceful. I often remind myself of what Teacher said,
"If you are without the Goodness (Shan) that a Dafa disciple has, then you are not a cultivator. If a Dafa disciple cannot validate the Fa, then he is not a Dafa disciple." ("On 'The Dignity of Dafa'" from Essentials for Further Advancement II)
Clarifying the truth is part of cultivation practice. Teacher said,
"But normally when a problem arises, if it does not irritate a person psychologically, it does not count or is useless and cannot make him or her improve." ("Transformation of Karma" from Lecture Four of Zhuan Falun)
When I clarify the truth over the Internet, I do not curse, reproach or insult anyone. Yet Chinese people who have been influenced by the CCP's propaganda, are taught to believe that the CCP is more important and greater than even their own mothers. When I tell them that the CCP has slaughtered 80 million people since it came to power, sometimes they accuse me of insulting their families and their people.
I once met someone who refused to listen to anything I said. He repeatedly told me, "You are not Chinese. You are not worthy of being Chinese." I couldn't help feeling a little offended, but I tried my best to remain calm. I said, "In your heart, you know what is true and what is not. Everyone knows what's good and what's bad, and so do you. Am I right? Why don't we chat again some other day?" The next day he looked for me and the first thing he said was, "I want to withdraw from the CCP."
On the other hand, I have met many Internet police who refuse to listen to anything. All they know is the tingling of money. They are willing to betray their conscience for money. Teacher said,
"Perhaps some people have been poisoned really deeply but can still be saved. Of course, there are also some who can't be saved, but the vast majority can be. Right now you can't tell them apart. I think that you absolutely shouldn't be discouraged or apathetic. Do this compassionately no matter who it is, and with a compassion that can melt steel you'll be able to do it well." ("Explaining the Fa During the 2003 Lantern Festival at the U.S. West Fa Conference")
Keeping Teacher's words in mind, I decided that I shall never be discouraged or apathetic again if I come across people who are abusive. I will never have any negative thoughts or pass judgment. Even if they are not receptive to the truth at the time, I may have touched their conscience to some extent and built a foundation for the next practitioner who might talk to them over the Internet.
On a more positive note, there are kindhearted people who decide to withdraw from the CCP and its two affiliates without any problem. I met someone the other day who told me, "What kind of organization do you belong to? You are always so kind and peaceful, and you never get upset or emotional. You are very good to talk to." I replied, "I don't belong to any political party. Presently the Internet in China is behind a firewall that is filtering out important information, such as The Epoch Times and the "Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party." The lack of access to information blocks Chinese people from withdrawing from the CCP and prevents Chinese people from hearing about the CCP's atrocious crime of harvesting internal organs from living Falun Gong practitioners for profit. Heaven will ultimately reward good deeds and punish bad deeds. I don't want you to be one of those receiving retribution, so I want to help you withdraw from the CCP and its two affiliates." "I see," he said.
Because the Chinese people grew up being bombarded by the CCP's political propaganda and brainwashing, many Chinese people will ask if I am a Chinese. I usually tell them, "We are all Chinese people. Has it ever occurred to you that the CCP is not representing China, just like the Nazis were not representing Germany and the Russian Communist Party Russia? China has over 5,000 years of culture and it has only been a short period of time under CCP rule. The CCP is the nemesis of the Chinese culture because it has destroyed the Chinese culture. Look at what the CCP did during the ten years of the Cultural Revolution. Everything came to a stop during those ten years, including agriculture, industrial business and education. Valuable historic sites and treasures were destroyed. Moreover, the CCP has killed 80 million Chinese people since it came to power. Think about how prosperous China used to be during the reign of the Great Tang Dynasty. I wish the Great Tang Dynasty would return to China. I wish China would be a better country. We are all offspring of the Yellow Emperor. We must not become the descendants of Marx and Lenin. Neither Marx nor Lenin were Chinese!"
A man once told me, "I have never never joined the CCP. As for the CCP's two affiliated student organizations, I am no longer a student, so I think I am no longer part of it. I am overcome with fear when you suggest withdrawing from the CCP." I said, "As of August 2007, over 25 million people have withdrawn from the CCP and its two affiliates. There is nothing to be afraid of because you are not alone. It's the CCP that is afraid. It is afraid that people no longer want to be part of it. It is afraid that people might read the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party and learn the dark truth about it. Therefore, it is trying everything it can to stop people, such as blocking the Chinese people from visiting overseas websites, and telling members of the CCP and its two affiliates to stay 'politically active.' The CCP knows it is on its last breath, but it wants people to die with it. Weren't you made to join the CCP's Young Pioneers League and the Youth League when you were in elementary school and middle school? Weren't you asked to swear with a fist that you would dedicate your life to the CCP? It is a stain on your record to be forced to join the CCP or its affiliated organizations. You have sworn to dedicate your life to the CCP and you are still part of it until you make a statement withdrawing from the CCP and its affiliates."
Some people ask me what kind of difference it would make to withdraw from the CCP or its affiliates. I explain it by saying, "The significance is to cut oneself off from the evil CCP and its affiliates. It will not affect your education or your career, only you will not be part of the target when heaven annihilates the CCP! You may use a pseudonym or a nickname to publish the statement, so it is very safe. You will not suffer any losses. But if you don't publish a withdrawal from the CCP, you will have to suffer the consequences in the future. There is a Chinese saying, 'Heaven shall ultimately reward good deeds and punish bad deeds.' The CCP has killed so many lives. It is foreseeable that heaven will uphold justice one day by annihilating the CCP and all its members. Even though you have not done those killings, you will suffer the heavenly retribution when the day comes. Wouldn't it be a pity to become a scapegoat?"
I have noticed that as long as we patiently answer Chinese people's questions, most people will agree to withdraw from the wicked CCP and its two affiliates. I hope that we all can become more diligent in saving sentient beings because the end of the Fa-rectification is near.
I hope that my sharing will help fellow practitioners. Please kindly point out anything that is not within the Fa.
