How Time Flies! Hurry Up, Save Sentient Beings!
"As Dafa disciples clarify the truth
Sharp swords shoot forth from their mouths
Tearing open the rotten demons' lies
Lose no time and save them,
hurry up and tell them" ("Hurry Up And Tell Them" from Hong Yin II)
I have recited this poem by Master in the past. However, as I recited it recently, I had a different understanding. How time flies! People often said in the past, "Days wear on like years." Now I think "Years wear on like days" is more appropriate when we describe how time flies. We really need to hurry up to clarify the truth" and save more sentient beings.
I used to be non-talkative, and found it difficult to explain the facts about Falun Gong. I know the three things that Master told us to do, none of which is dispensable. At the very beginning, clarifying the truth for me was harder than climbing up to the sky. I could not open my mouth, was afraid of losing face, and had fear, just to list a few reasons. I missed lots of predestined people. The reason for this is that I didn't pay enough attention to elevating my xinxing in cultivation.
Recently, whether in my studies or daily life, I have really felt that Fa-rectification is nearing the end. We must hurry up to clarify the truth and save more sentient beings, otherwise, it will be too late. This has prompted me to start clarifying the truth and asking people to quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its affiliated organizations.
In the beginning, I spoke to my classmates. Every time before I started to talk, I organized my ideas; sent forth righteous thoughts to clear away the evil dark minions, rotten demons and all of the elements of the Communist evil specter that prevent them from listening to the truth; and asked Master to strengthen me.
When my righteous thoughts are strong, I can feel the power of Master's strengthening and the sentient beings can immediately understand what I'm talking about and perhaps quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations. For example, after clarifying the truth, I realized that there are some phrases I didn't know how to put into words, but I was still able to convince them. It was clearly that Master had given me strength. However, when my heart is not righteous, even if I say everything right, they won't agree or believe me. Even if I emphasize that I am doing this for their wellbeing, they put me off with excuses such as "I've never heard of the persecution or harvesting organs from living practitioners" or "I'll think about it later." Some even argued that they didn't take it seriously when they joined the CCP's affiliated organizations, so it wouldn't matter if they quit or not. I repeatedly explain it to them, but they just won't listen.
I finally clarified the truth to someone I knew, and she agreed with my wish to save sentient beings. This year, I'm a sophomore and she is a junior. Since last year, she has always come to our classroom to study. At first, I was thinking, "Is she coming to hear the truth?" But, because of my fear and worries, I didn't talk to her. At the beginning of the semester this year, she came to our classroom again. A thought surfaced in my mind. "She came here for the truth and I can't let her miss it again". A few minutes later, she came up to me to talk. At the beginning, we conversed about our studies. Then I told her how the CCP has slaughtered the Chinese people as it instigated political movements and how it encourages fighting and slanderous lies, etc.. I also told her the truth about Falun Gong. I asked her to quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations. She seemed surprised as I was clarifying the truth. At first, her attitude was one of indifference. Because she was a probationary member of the CCP and was about to become an official one, she had a few worries. A thought had come to my mind: "You must be saved! You must quit!" Finally, after an hour of conversation, she said, "If it is good for me to quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations, do it for me." Then I told her that saying "Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good" will bring her good fortune. She was receptive. After that, she never again came to our classroom to study. This made me realize the reason why she had always come to our classroom--it was to hear the truth. If I hadn't told her, I would have missed an important opportunity.
This also gave me the impetus to save more sentient beings, and I realized the importance of the significance of Master's poem "Hurry Up And Tell Them." What I have done is still far from enough. I haven't been able to hurry up and clarify the truth every day. We must break through all the barriers to clarifying the truth to sentient beings and get rid of every attachment and human notion because everyone around us is waiting for us to save them.
