Immersing Our Lives in the Fa
(Clearwisdom.net) As Fa-rectification Dafa disciples, we must listen to what Master teaches us and do the three things well to save more sentient beings.
I have acquired wisdom from cultivating in Dafa, and Master has opened up my memory. He frequently brings people who have predestined relations to me. One day when I was with a fellow practitioner, we convinced more than 20 people to renounce their memberships in the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) in two hours. On another occasion, a man dropped something when he was riding toward me. As I assisted him to carry some bags into his store, I started to try to convince him to quit the CCP and its affiliated associations. I also left him a truth-clarification DVD.
Before 2005, I focused on clarifying the truth of Dafa to sentient beings. Afterwards, I combined truth-clarifying with convincing people to quit the CCP. When they agreed to quit the CCP, I would tell them to say "Falun Dafa is good." It was very easy. I would also tell them to go home and convince their family members to quit as well. I would not miss chances to save sentient beings.
In 2005 when we first started to tell people to quit the CCP and its associated organizations, I could convince between 20 and 30 people, but most of them were my close acquaintances. As I continued to explain the facts to others, I regarded them differently. I felt there were hindrances and I didn't know how or where to start. As I was walking one noontime, a white car suddenly came to a halt right in front of me. When I looked inside the car I immediately recognized the driver. It was my coworker from over 20 years ago, and I knew that I could save another person. After talking with him, I found out that he was not only a Party member but also an official in a court. Soon after we started chatting, I asked him how he felt about my practicing Falun Gong. I explained to him why he needed to quit the Party. After a few minutes, he decided to quit.
A coworker's child was going to college and they invited me to their residence to celebrate. I knew that I needed to go. The day before the celebration, I began to send forth righteous thoughts and I asked Master to strengthen my power and rid my coworker's family of the evil old forces. The following day when I was at their house, I was so busy convincing people to quit the Party that I hardly had time to eat. I would tell them to say "Falun Dafa is good" and for them not to join any of the CCP's organizations. Another day I helped over 40 people to quit. From then on, I would not miss any social gatherings I was invited to because I knew I could save them, their family members, relatives and their friends.
When someone refused to quit, I would immediately search inside myself to see if I had any attachments. If I found any, I would eliminate them. The more people I talked to, the easier it was for me. I constantly reminded myself that I am a Dafa disciple and my job here is to save people. Master said in "Let Go of Human Attachments and Save the World's People:" "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."
If someone still refuses to quit after I try many times, I do not push too hard. I tell him everything I can, so it's up to him to decide what to choose. Only with righteous thoughts can our words be filled with power. I helped a couple that owns a grain store to quit, but their store attendant refused at first. On my way out of the store that day, the owner wanted to help me secure a bottle of cooking oil to my bike, but I told him to let the attendant help me instead. After I told the attendant the truth about Dafa and the reasons why he should quit the Party, he said that he did not want to do anything with me that day, nor did he want to quit. I asked him why he could not tell good from bad even after his boss had agreed to quit, that after quitting, the owner had good fortune and his business was going very well. Hearing that, the attendant calmed down a little and told me to give him some time to think about it. I agreed, but next time, I said, he must quit. His response was affirmative. Three days later, he smiled at me when we saw each other and he agreed to quit. I realized that if I have the wish, Master will arrange everything for me. Buddha saves those who have predestined relationships.
Whenever I go out to run errands, I help people quit and sometimes another practitioner comes along to help. We help a few people quit in about two to three hours.
Now I clarify the truth to everyone I meet, including acquaintances, strangers, adults, and even children. I get upset if some do not agree with me. Clarifying the truth to people is also a process for me to improve my xinxing. Once I can find where they are stuck, I usually need only a few words to help them understand the truth. After quitting, some say that Falun Dafa is good.
Saving sentient being is a divine task for Dafa disciples and we must do it well. Master said:
"The old forces don't dare to oppose our clarifying the truth or saving sentient beings. What's key is to not let them take advantage of the gaps in your state of mind when you do things." ("Teaching the Fa at the 2002 Fa Conference in Boston")
I am able to maintain a peaceful state of mind when I tell people about Falun Dafa, and I do not have fear. My strong righteous thoughts send people the message that I must save them. With some difficult ones, I would add one thought in my righteous thought--to eliminate all the evil forces and elements that have been interfering with them to keep them from being saved. If they still refuse, I say that, next time, if someone else tells them to quit, they must.
One morning in October, 2008, I went to a market to convince people to quit the CCP. Over a dozen people quit before I planned to go home, but suddenly five police officers came in a police car. They told me that someone had reported me and said, "You want us to lose our jobs? Let's go to the police station." I did not go with them. One policeman took my bike and left first. Following them, I began to talk to one of them. The policeman that I talked to told me that he was on duty that day and he had to force me to write a statement that I would stop practicing Falun Gong in the future. Just then, I had the thought that I should not let my husband and his employer know what had happened to me. Later I realized that it was interference, so I started to eliminate that thought--I should just clarify the truth about Dafa and not think about anything else. I told the policeman that I would not write the statement because it was not a good thing for me to do, nor was it good for him, either. It was a crime against Dafa to write that statement. After telling him the reasons why he needed to quit the CCP and its youth organizations, I told him that he could use a pseudonym to quit, and just nod his head if he agreed. He asked me how he could nod his head with so many people around us. I said that if he did not object, that meant that he agreed to quit. He promised that he would try not to have to force me to write the statement.
Inside the police station, I told everyone the truth about Dafa. Some listened to me, but some would not. A police chief told me that he understood me. Afterwards, I was left alone with one policeman and another person. I began to tell them the reasons why they should quit the CCP and its youth group. The other person agreed, and the policeman also said that he understood and thanked me. Very soon, I was left alone in the hallway, so I walked downstairs calmly and left the police station. After staying at another practitioner's residence for two days, I went home. Since then, everything has returned to normal. If we have righteous thoughts and do righteous things, Master will help us.
We should let go of our attachments and move forward diligently. We need to replace our human thoughts with divine thoughts, study the Fa well, look inside ourselves, and regard everything with righteous thoughts.
