Reflections on the Eutelsat Incident
(Clearwisdom.net) The situation of Eutelsat terminating NTDTV broadcasts into China, taken as a whole, reveals Dafa practitioners' lack of truth clarification efforts. The practitioners in mainland China have not sufficiently treasured New Tang Dynasty Television (NTDTV), and still have a great attachment to fear. I had purchased several satellite dishes, but for several months nobody asked me to help install the dishes. While this phenomenon has occurred in the cities, it is said that the situation in the countryside is a little better. I have also contacted several fellow practitioners who were manifesting various cultivation states, but the most prominent problem that I saw was a lack of righteous thoughts. All in all, their attachment to fear was affecting them. I also saw that fellow practitioners' understanding of how to install satellite dishes was insufficient. In the past, I read practitioners' articles, and it seemed that they had a positive attitude towards installing the satellite dishes, and they were in a good state of mind. But it was not until the Eutelsat incident occurred and the actual situation was revealed: fellow practitioners' state of mind really falls far short.
I feel that the main problem with overseas Dafa practitioners is a lack of sufficient truth-clarification efforts, and not thinking over the situation cohesively. They did not put much value on clarifying the truth to Eutelsat, the American Government, different levels of government agencies and some large companies. The same situation occurred in dealing with other countries. They did not think of clarifying the truth until problems occurred, and then they complained about those in the ordinary society being wrong. According to Master's "Fa Teaching Given to the Australian Practitioners," we know that we were actually not right, and we did not do well and enough, which is why the problem occurred.
As we all know, in the past, wherever Dafa was being slandered in mainland China, practitioners' letters and phone calls would pour into that area like a snowstorm. Reflecting on the Eutelsat incident, doesn't this offer us an opportunity to compensate for our shortcomings, to do well in those areas that we have not done well in? Fellow practitioners, whether inside or outside of China, should take very seriously our truth clarification efforts regarding Eutelsat to the governments and companies of different countries. We can gather their email addresses and telephone and fax numbers. We can send our letters to the Minghui/Clearwisdom website and NTDTV to have them translated and then have those letters sent. Our letters should not be too long, but should express our true thoughts and feelings. In the past, we may have not thought about clarifying the truth on a worldwide scale. Starting from today, we need to begin clarifying the truth worldwide, so that every single person knows that Falun Dafa is good, and make sure that every one knows that Falun Dafa has been persecuted by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). This act will actually be saving people around the world, and by doing this we will be making sure that some people won't mistakenly side with the CCP because we may have fallen short in our truth clarification efforts. When we do all of this to a sufficient extent, the persecution will surely end, and the CCP will be disintegrated. I see that many fellow practitioners in mainland China have still not understood this. We should treat ourselves as cultivators who save people, not as ordinary people to be persecuted, nor should we rely on the efforts of overseas practitioners or even ordinary people. But most of all, should we not remain helpless!
The above are some of my own thoughts, please compassionately point out anything inappropriate.
