Saving Sentient Beings in Beijing, the Evil's Nest
(Clearwisdom.net) As Dafa disciples in Beijing, we have an unshakable responsibility to save sentient beings here. For all these years, I have persisted in doing the three things well. On the basis of studying the Fa well, I send forth righteous thoughts to eliminate the evil and clarify the truth to sentient beings to save them.
Here, I want to share my experiences and enlightenment from doing truth-clarification. I welcome fellow practitioners to point out anything that is improper.
1. Fully Believing in Master and Dafa, Ridding Myself of Fear
At the beginning, I was afraid of being persecuted. By continuing to practice Dafa, several practitioners around me lost their families and jobs. Compared to them, I felt ashamed and finally decided to step forward to validate the Fa.
At first, I only distributed truth-clarification materials in the baskets of bicycles. Every time I returned home, I felt scared. Later, I studied the Fa very hard, and I remembered:
"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")
So I realized that saving sentient beings is the most righteous thing in the universe and that my pure and compassionate heart will break the old force's interference and persecution. As a result, before I start to distribute truth-clarification materials, I only have one thought: "I'm coming to save you, you must cherish the materials and the opportunity for you to be saved."
At one point, I came to an alley about 200 meters long. There were many bicycles parked there. However, an old lady stood in the alley and wouldn't leave. When I was in front of her, she shouted at me and took the materials from one of the bicycle's baskets. At that time, I remembered Master's teaching of "just by having your heart unaffected you will be able to handle all situations." ("Eliminate Your Last Attachment(s)," Essentials for Further Advancement II) I calmed down very quickly and walked back to the old lady, asking her to return the materials to me. She kept talking very loudly, but I remained calm and walked out of the alley where a taxi happened to be at the entrance. I got into the taxi. As soon as the car started, the old lady had caught up with another lady. They didn't see me and ran in another direction. Master had protected me at this crucial moment.
During the process of validating the Fa, I had less and less fear, and my righteous thoughts became stronger and stronger. Now I'd like to go to some "dangerous" places, such as the military, government courtyard and research institutions. People in those places have been deeply poisoned by the communist regime and they need to be saved.
2. Delivering Materials to Every Household
I noticed that sometimes people wouldn't dare to read the materials in their bike baskets, and some of them immediately threw the materials away. I discussed with several practitioners that we should put the materials in plastic bags and distribute them in the apartments. Anyone who opens the door can pick up the materials. It's much safer and helps more sentient beings be saved.
When I was walking in the neighborhood, I thought how good it would be to post the materials in the apartments, that I had to get into the apartment buildings where the officials of the government departments and research institution staff lived. Once I had this thought, I walked toward a building. At this time, a grandma appeared and wanted to go upstairs, so I said, "Let me help you!" She said, "Thank you!" She took out the key and opened the door. I followed her and got into the building successfully. In that building, I posted around 70 or 80 copies of truth-clarification materials and left safely. Master has arranged everything so perfectly for me.
There was another time that I entered a building when not many people were around. When I was about to leave the materials on one door, the people inside saw me. Later, a lady about my age came out with a brochure. I reminded myself that Master was protecting me, and I didn't have to worry about anything, so I said to her, "Take a look at these materials. Everything in them is all true. You should also have your family members read them." She didn't say anything and went back inside, so I continued to post the materials.
Once I was in a taxi and clarified the truth to the driver the entire time. He was very interested. I said, "How about I think of a name for you to help you quit the Communist party?" He agreed. I asked, "How about Zhang Baishun?" He looked at me and nodded his head. Before I got out of the car, he asked me, "How did you know my name is Zhang Baishun?" I answered, "I only wanted to think of a lucky name for you, I didn't know that was your real name." Later, I understood that Master was giving me a hint at that time to allow sentient beings to witness the wonders of Dafa.
3. Saving Sentient Beings in Many Ways
I use every opportunity to save sentient beings. I take a truth-clarification cellphone with me all the time. Whenever I have time, like when I am on my way to some place or when I am waiting for someone, I make several truth-clarification phone calls. All the banknotes I use to buy things have truth-clarification messages on them. I always ride a bicycle to different markets to buy things. In this way, people living in different districts are able to learn the truth and it also reduces the chance of being picked up by the police.
Once a person told me that many people collect the money with truth-clarification messages. This shows that many people have come to understand the truth. In the process, I met a young lady who had practiced Dafa in the past. I persuaded her to start practicing again, and she told me she was very happy to see me and would use the money with truth-clarification messages in the future.
4. Harmonizing My Family Environment, Continuing to Save Sentient Beings in a Busy Life
Master has taught us:
"Under all circumstances, we must be good and kind to others, not to mention to our family members. We should treat everyone in the same way. We must be good to our parents and children and be considerate of others in all respects. Such a heart is thus unselfish, and it is a heart of kindness and benevolence." (Lecture Six, Zhuan Falun)
I enlightened that, as a practitioner, we should be considerate of others in everything we do and maintain compassion in our hearts to better save sentient beings.
I retired two years ago. Now I'm a part time accountant. This job provides me enough money to produce truth-clarification materials. My 80-year-old mother's health is not good, so my husband and I take turns taking care of her. My husband knows Dafa is good. When I'm away, he cooks for my mother and takes care of her.
Although I am very busy, I pay attention to balancing the relationship of doing the three things and everyday life. I have started a company with several practitioners. I have used every opportunity to promote the development of the company. The purpose of the company is to break the old forces' financial persecution and create working opportunities for practitioners who have lost their jobs because of the persecution.
Above are my experiences in truth-clarification and validation of the Fa. I welcome fellow practitioners to point out anything improper. Heshi!
