Seizing All Opportunities to Clarify the Facts and Save Sentient Beings
(Clearwisdom.net) As a practitioner during the Fa-ratification period, I have spent a lot of time and used different approaches to try to clarify the facts to people. I also try to make sure that I don't miss any opportunity to save those with predestined relationships. The following are some of the situations that I have experienced.
Delivering a Stove
One autumn while out shopping, I saw a man carrying a stove and an iron chimney. I asked him, "May I help you?" He replied, "Sure, that's great." I put his stove and chimney on my bicycle rack. On the way to his home, I told him the facts about Falun Dafa. When we arrived at his home, I asked if he and his wife were members of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). He said that they were members of the Young Pioneers and his son was a member of the Youth League. I said, "If you have raised your hand to take an oath to defend the CCP, there will be a mark on your forehead. The CCP is an evil Party and is about to perish. It is not safe to be part of it." He replied, "In that case could you help the three of us withdraw from the Party?" They used their real names to do the withdrawals.
While visiting my daughter in Beijing, I borrowed her bicycle to go out to clarify the truth. I saw three young girls carrying five suitcases and hurrying towards the train station. I asked if I could help them. They were overjoyed to put three of their largest bags on my bicycle rack. I used the opportunity to tell them about Falun Dafa and learned that they were members of the Youth League and Young Pioneers. They agreed to use the names Xiaolan, Xiaomei, and Xiaohua to quit the Party.
Helping to Fix a Bicycle Chain
Once during the winter time, as I rode my bike on the highway, I saw a girl trying hard to put the chain back on her bicycle. It was a cold day. I stopped and asked her if I could help. She replied, "It is quite oily. I feel bad about asking you to do it." I noticed that she was well dressed as if for a party and said, "It doesn't matter. It is more important for you to keep your clothes clean." She replied, "Uncle, you are very kind." I said, "I practice Falun Dafa and that is why I offered to help." Then she said, "In that case, I would like to thank you for your help." I fixed the chain and rode along with her while explaining the facts about Dafa. During this time I also answered many of her questions about Falun Gong. She said, "This time I have witnessed that practitioners are good people." I replied, "Yes, please remember 'Falun Dafa is good.' It will bring you a bright future." Before we parted, I learned that she had joined the Youth League and Young Pioneers, and I asked her to withdraw. She said, "Just use my real name to do that." I was happy that another life was saved.
A Spontaneous Moment
A few days ago while returning home, I saw a cell phone about to fall out of a young man's pocket. I said, "Young man, you are about to lose your cell phone!" He heard me and immediately put his cell phone in another pocket. He said, "Thank you, brother." I replied, "We are related in some way. Otherwise, how could such an opportunity arise?" He said, "Yes, I think so, too." We rode together on our bicycles and talked about many things, including Falun Dafa. I found out that he was a member of the Youth League and Young Pioneers and he agreed to use his real name to withdraw from these groups. When we parted he said, "Falun Dafa is good. Good bye."
Clarifying the Truth to a Foreigner
I was on a business trip to Beijing and while sitting in a bus, I saw a foreigner standing in front of me. I thought I should save him if he had the wrong idea about Falun Dafa, so I started a conversation with him. I asked, "What is your name?" He answered, "Charlie. I am from Germany and came here to study literature." Since he was able to speak Chinese, I asked him to sit down with me. He sensed that I was friendly and was happy to talk to me. I asked, "Have you heard about Falun Dafa?" He said, "The self-immolation! I saw it on television and the newspapers." I told him that what he saw was fabricated. He was taken by surprise and thought that the Chinese government could not be lying. I told him that the CCP has been lying to and deceiving the public all these years. Furthermore, the CCP started many movements leading to the deaths of tens of millions of Chinese. I also told him about the June1989 mass murder of students with machine guns and tanks. I let him know that before I started practicing Falun Dafa, I was a civil servant. I was told by my superior to fabricate statistics to make the government look good. Finally, I told him about the benefits of good health and peace of mind I had from practicing Dafa. He saw that I looked much younger than sixty and said, "Uncle, you are a good man! You wouldn't lie to me. I shall remember that Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Benevolence-Forbearance is good!"
Over the last few years, I have had many opportunities to clarify the facts about Dafa to people by helping them to pick up or carry things, by doing the accounting, or by finishing a repair job. I didn't overlook any of these opportunities and saved everyone with a predestined relationship. Through my experiences, I have a much deeper understanding of the statement in "The Master-Disciple Bond" from Hong Yin II, "When disciples have ample righteous thought, Master has the power to turn back the tide." We only clarify the truth--the actual work is done by Master.
Fellow practitioners, let us make use of all opportunities to save sentient beings. The Fa-ratification has reached its last phase. Let us clarify the facts about Dafa and save all the sentient beings with predestined relationships.
