(Clearwisdom.net) If we are diligent in our daily lives, we may find that we encounter people with predestined relationships every day. As long as we keep the wish to save sentient beings as our main focus, Master will help us fulfill our mission. However, the attachment of fear often blocks me and thus I have missed many opportunities to save sentient beings.

I kept steadfastly studying the Fa, and I searched inward for the origin of my fear. When the evil Chinese Communist Party (CCP) started to persecute Falun Gong in 1999, I remained calm. I clarified the truth about Falun Gong, distributed truth-clarifying materials, studied the Fa, and never stopped doing the three things. At that time, I didn't have any fear. In addition, I quickly wrote articles to validate the Fa and explain the facts of the persecution. As long as I had the wish, I could write an article quickly. Because of the shortage of truth-clarifying materials, I always wrote materials myself. Once when the CCP slandered Falun Gong on TV, I wrote down my cultivation experience to clarify the facts. At that time, we had neither a computer nor a printer. We just wrote out copies by hand and then distributed them.

Then, when did my fear develop? It was after my release from a forced labor camp. Detained in the forced labor camp for more than five hundred days, I personally witnessed the evil's cruelty. The CCP declares how good and kind it is in the media; however, in secret it severely persecutes Falun Gong practitioners. The CCP agents and officials are very afraid of their evil deeds being exposed.

Once I talked about the CCP's deeds to a fellow practitioner who had just been put into prison. The next day, a prisoner reported this to the guards. Then the head of the guards found me and ordered me not to mention such things anymore. I was not afraid at that time and firmly told her, "What I said is just the truth." The head then changed her tone, "Don't mention it anymore please. It's not good for you." Later, she let me go back to my room. This was really unusual because the guards normally severely tortured practitioners who exposed their crimes. Afterwards, the guards used another way to persecute me. They sent prisoners to watch me and reported whatever I said to them. This really tormented me a lot.

After being released, I seized time to study the Fa and worked harder to send forth righteous thoughts. After being released, however, I didn't dare to go out to clarify the truth face-to-face or distribute truth-clarifying materials, especially when I encountered my classmates and colleagues. I always felt that an evil set of eyes was staring at me. I was afraid that I would again be arrested and taken away, bringing pain to my family. I was surrounded within the fear and felt pain and anxiety. I tried several times to get rid of this fear; but I felt that I was deeply caught in a horrible cage and that the evil was about to appear at any time. It was really a difficult time for me.

I looked within deeply. Why did I have so much fear? What did I fear? I feared losing my freedom; I feared the pain and loneliness in the evil den; I feared that my job would be affected; I feared my family members feeling grief... all the above were actually a result of my own selfishness! I needed to disintegrate these fears and this attachment. I told myself that I must walk out of the shadow of fear and firmly believe in Master and Dafa with strong righteous thoughts to save people who have predestined relationships with me. In the following days, I kept on sending forth righteous thoughts hour by hour to cleanse my own field. Gradually I was able to calm down and peacefully study the Fa. As my righteous thoughts became stronger and stronger, I started to distribute truth-clarifying materials again. In the beginning, I clarified the truth to family members. After establishing a good environment in my family, I gradually went out to clarify the truth to strangers.

One of my classmates from middle school came to my office several times, but I still didn't dare to clarify the truth to her. Several years passed, and she came again at the end of 2009. I realized that she might really have a predestined relationship with me. This time I thought, "I cannot miss this opportunity. I need to tell her the truth about Falun Gong." After we finished our office affairs, I was considering what topic I could start with. But she suddenly said, "I thank the CCP for helping me do so much." I immediately sent forth righteous thoughts to clean away the evil factors behind her. I said to her, "Don't say that. The CCP never does anything good. Don't believe them. They are harming common people but they themselves have become rich through corruption. Look at those poor households. How lamentable they are. Isn't that caused by the CCP? We are old friends and classmates. I wanted to tell you this earlier. I'm only concerned about you. Whoever believes in the CCP will be out of luck. The CCP only tells lies and arrests good people, especially Falun Gong practitioners. Falun Gong teaches people to cultivate Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. Falun Gong is freely and openly practiced in more than one hundred and fourteen countries, including Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan. Only the CCP tries to stop practitioners and persecutes them. Falun Gong only teaches people to be good, and has benefited millions worldwide. By attempting to prevent people in China from practicing, does the CCP do good? You must not believe their lies."

She agreed, "OK, I don't believe the CCP." Finally I helped her quit all organizations affiliated with the CCP and asked her to always recite, "Falun Dafa is good; Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good." The entire time I talked with her, I didn't have any fear at all, I just clarified the truth spontaneously. Actually, it was all arranged by Master. Master is taking care of us at every moment and doing a lot for us. Only by striving forward diligently and truly practicing cultivation can I repay Master's grace.

In the past, I always took the bus to return home. But I never dared clarify the truth to the conductor. At first, I hesitated to clarify the truth because I had just been released from the forced labor camp. Later, I drove my own vehicle and no longer took the bus. Four years just passed by.

One day in January 2010, my niece and I went to the county to go shopping. At noon we found a small restaurant for lunch. Because the restaurant was crowded, no tables were left and the shopkeeper arranged that my niece and I would sit at a table with others who had reserved the table in advance. After a while, those people came. Unexpectedly, among them was the conductor of that bus.

Before I even started to say anything, the conductor recognized me, and said, "We really have a predestined relationship." Hearing this, I knew in my heart, "Isn't this arranged by Master, letting me clarify the truth to people with a predestined relationship? This time, I won't miss the opportunity!" They quickly finished their lunch and went out. I also went out and stopped him. I clarified the facts about Falun Gong to him and told him how evil the CCP is. He agreed with everything I said and happily quit the CCP. Before he left, he kept saying, "Thanks" to me. Watching him walk away, I felt deep emotion. If I had missed this chance again, we might have never seen each other again. It is Master who gave me this precious opportunity. I appreciate Master with all my heart and promise that I will do well.

There are many similar examples I could share. I enlightened that as long as we study the Fa more and have stronger righteous thoughts, we won't have fear and can quickly save sentient beings. Throughout the entire time that I've clarified the truth face-to-face, I have found that people who have a predestined relationship with me appear in front of me. If we miss the precious opportunity to save sentient beings due to our fear, we won't fulfill our duty and therefore we cannot achieve consummation. Then, how can we face our benevolent Master, who gave us salvation? How can we face those sentient beings who have placed their trust and hopes in us?

Thinking of this, I deeply realized how great our responsibilities are. Regarding clarifying the truth and saving sentient beings, we cannot lower our guard. As long as people appear in front of us, we need to tell them about the wonderfulness of Falun Dafa and help them quit the evil CCP, letting them choose a bright future.
