Firmly Believing in and Diligently Cultivating Dafa
(Clearwisdom.net) I started practicing Falun Gong in 1996. I was then unaware of and did not know the meaning of cultivation, but wondered if this practice could improve my health. However, miracles appeared after only three days of the cultivation practice. I could see many Falun surrounding me. My body felt light, as if I was younger, and I felt Dafa's power.
I came to Seattle, USA in 1998. I went to an experience sharing conference that was held in New York City. I saw Master at the conference and was so happy. I have since then been involved in group practice and felt that I was "officially" involved in Dafa cultivation. In Seattle, in 2002, I was involved in project in which I faxed Falun Gong information to China. In 2004, I went to New York City to distribute flyers on the streets. In 2006, I was also involved in another project: calling people in China or faxing information to major China hospitals, to let them know about the CCP's crime of organ harvesting from living Dafa practitioners. When I made a call, I condemned doctors who became an accessory to a tyrant's crimes. Some of them were just listening silently; some asked their colleagues to listen as well. One day, a woman on the other end of the line ask, "What should we do?" They were frightened upon learning the persecution.
In 2007, I got involved in calling and faxing materials and asking people in China to quit the CCP. I realized that calling people to quit the CCP was the most efficient method, but I did not have any experience and initially felt nervous. I strenghthend my righteous thoughts and made an effort to conduct quality phone calls before going to bed.
Master said, "While working, your tone of voice, your kindheartedness, and your reasoning can change a person's heart, whereas commands never could!" ("Clearheadedness" in Essentials for Further Advancement) I chose to chat with people on the phone and spoke to them with great compassion. From then on, Master opened a door for me to offer more people salvation. To date, I have convinced more than 5,400 people to quit the CCP and most of them happened this year. With Master's protection I had the courage to face people from different backgrounds. I realized that as long as I do things according to the Fa, Master would be there to help me.
There are two groups of people which we need to pay more attention to. One is police officers who were directly involved in the persecution. For money, they actively persecuted practitioners and blinded themselves to the facts. With compassion I told them the facts and I urged them to quit the CCP in order to ensure their own safety as well as their families'.
Another group is college students. They are the future of China and do not have social experience and live in a society full of lies. What they have learned about China's history is altered by the CCP's modifications, which include its culture, materialism and atheism. Living in a big city, they are seeking personal comfort and are unaware of the CCP's evil acts. I introduced them to the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party and exposed the CCP's evil acts, encouraged them to pay attention to important issues and their position on those issues, and urged them to quit the CCP, for their own safety. Some said they heard this before and would discuss this with their classmates.
Two phone conversations with people in China stand out. The first person was a city mayor. He seemed to be convinced to quit the CCP after I spoke with him on the phone, but worried that he might lose his job. I told him not to worry and suggested he could use an alias and quit the CCP. I would keep his declaration in the file as proof in the future. I said, "In the future you can still be promoted and be devoted to the new China." After that he quit the CCP.
Another person is a local government official who despised the CCP's corruption. He was happy to get my phone call and thanked me for what I had done for him.
I continue walking on the cultivation path with Master's protection and do as much as I can. I know that everything I have done has been achieved under Master's care and help from fellow practitioners.
Master urges us to move forward. I am grateful for Master's great compassion and salvation. I will improve my xinxing more diligently and will not let Master down.
Please correct me if there is anything incorrect in my sharing.
