(Clearwisdom.net) In 2005 our whole family, including our 8-year-old child, started practicing Falun Dafa.

My occupation is laying bricks, and I work on different construction sites in the city. I work more than 10 hours a day, starting about 6 o'clock in the morning, and don't get home until dark. After starting Dafa cultivation, I made up my mind to be a dedicated and solid practitioner, firmly trusting Teacher and believing in Dafa. I have been clarifying the truth and advising people to withdraw from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its affiliated organizations, mainly through person to person discussions. Compassionate Teacher has always protected me and has given me hints, so that I have been able to walk safely on my cultivation path.

At work I conduct myself strictly as a Dafa practitioner, having corrected my previous bad habits, and have enjoyed helping others. My work site moves as construction areas change. There are big construction sites and small ones; we can finish at a small one in only a few days, whereas we might be months on a big one. In my line of work, I have often come across strangers with karmic relationships to Dafa—they're carpenters, electricians, plumbers, steelworkers, technicians, and group leaders. These are the ones I have to clarify the truth to and advise about withdrawing from the CCP. Of course, I normally send forth righteous thoughts first to ensure my own safety.

One afternoon I was able to get off work somewhat early, and most everyone else had gone home. I stayed behind, looking around for someone with a good karmic relationship to clarify the truth to and offer advice on quitting the three organizations of the CCP. Just then the sky started to darken and the wind started to gust, as if it was going to rain soon. As I was hesitating at the main gate, a technician waved to me. “A fellow wants to talk to you,” he said. (He had already withdrawn from the CCP.) I stepped into the office to find lots of people sitting there.

Just then the rain started, and I realized that Teacher had made arrangements for me to save people. The technician (pointing at a female supervisor) said, “She is a Falun Gong practitioner and would like to talk to you.” I doubted she was a practitioner, as I'd always seen her smoking. So I said, “What did you want to talk about?” She asked, “How long have you practiced Falun Gong?” I said, “I obtained the Fa in 2005.” It seemed that she despised me. In my mind, I begged Teacher to strengthen my righteous thoughts. I continued, “You should quit smoking.” She said, “Smoking is no big deal.” Then, in all seriousness I said to everyone in the office, “Today I'd like to talk about why Falun Dafa is being taught, its relationship to every one of us, about its relationship with predictions and today's disasters, about why the CCP persecutes Dafa, and about why everyone should withdraw from the Chinese Communist Party, the Youth League, and the Young Pioneers.” As I clarified the truth, it was very quiet and no one said a word. After I finished talking, I asked the female supervisor, “Did you withdraw?” She said she did. I asked the head of the workers, “Sir, could I help you to withdraw to ensure your safety?” He gladly accepted my offer, and all of those in the office did the same. Later, the technician said that the female supervisor's mother was a Dafa practitioner.

On another occasion, we were constructing a big complex and the main building was finished. As we had only one day left to lay brick, and because it wasn't dark yet when we got off work, I thought of doing some truth clarification. Normally on any construction site, I don't clarify the truth face to face, as I don't want to be misunderstood in the long run. Riding my motor-bike alongside a fellow bricklayer leaving the construction site and seeing that he was on his way home, I turned around and headed back towards the workers' temporary “dorm.”

I walked into a dorm at the construction site. There were three people there. I clarified the truth to them and helped them withdraw from the CCP and its affiliated organizations. I departed after offering them amulets. I entered a dorm for carpenters, where there were over ten people—some of whom I was familiar with. I said, “Because we have finished all the brick work, I might not have another opportunity to see you guys again. If I don't tell you something very important, I will regret it forever. If human beings encounter a catastrophe, you have no way to avoid it. Since we have worked on the same project, we certainly have a karmic relationship with one another.” I told them about Falun Dafa and its relationship to everybody, about the evil CCP persecuting Dafa practitioners, about the fabricated “self-immolation” at Tiananmen Square, about doing the “three withdrawals” from the CCP, and about Falun Dafa spreading throughout the world.

After finishing what I had to say, I said to the carpenter I knew, “Let me help you withdraw from the Party.” He was happy to quit the Youth League and the Young Pioneers he had joined, and gave me his name. While writing his name, I gave him an amulet. A young fellow, who saw the beautiful amulet, said, “I want one, too,” I said, “Don't worry, I've got enough for everyone.” How lucky I was to save them all. Then, I walked into another cabin, where a husband and wife and one other person were having a drink. I told them what I had come for and told them the facts. I helped two of them withdraw.

Finally, I went into the cabin where the chief of the workers stayed. Without any difficulty he withdrew from the Youth League and the Young Pioneers. With Teacher's blessing, there was little interruption in the process of advising on the “three withdrawals.” Without a doubt, it was just like Teacher said,

“Cultivation depends on one’s own efforts, while the transformation of gong is done by one’s master.” (Lecture One, Zhuan Falun)

As I was on my way home one day, around noontime, a lady stopped me and asked, “I got lost on this circular road.” Knowing that Teacher had arranged this person with a karmic relationship, I said, “Lady, don't worry. I'll take you to the city after telling you something.” Then, I clarified the truth and helped her with the withdrawals. She began to cry. I asked, “What's wrong? Why are you crying?” She said, “I met a good person today.” I consoled her, “Let me take you to the city.” When we got to the city, she said, “I know how to get home now.” As we parted, she repeatedly said, “Thank you very much!” I said, “Don't mention it. Take care.”

I told my wife, who is a fellow practitioner, about what happened. She said that maybe her main consciousness understood and that was why she cried. What came to my mind was that Teacher, for the sake of saving people, makes detailed arrangements as to when and where a Dafa practitioner can be met. I was deeply touched!

My wife and I started truth-clarification and advising on the “three withdrawals” in the winter of 2007—a real process of cultivating the mind. Most people don't like the “three withdrawals.” I don't get bothered by the number of people who withdraw from the CCP. I always remember to look inward if things don't go right. Teacher's Fa teaching is of prime importance in improving coordination with my wife, correcting my own errors, and raising my xinxing.

In Zhuan Falun Teacher said,

“For instance, there once was a person who was tied to a bed. They took one of his arms and claimed that they would slit it to make it bleed. Then they blindfolded his eyes and scratched his wrist once. (He was not at all cut and bleeding.) A water faucet was turned on so that he could hear water dripping, and he thus thought that it was his blood that was dripping. The man died shortly afterwards. In fact, he was not cut and bleeding—it was running water that was dripping. His psychological factors caused his death. “ (Lecture Six)

After studying Teacher's Fa in this paragraph, I came to comprehend one thing about the cause of human death: His spirit causes his death. Isn't his spirit his mentality? Isn't his mentality the same as that of human beings? Of course, humans can be scared of death. Let's talk about cultivation. A cultivator is a person who walks on a god's path. A person without a human mind is the same as a god's mind: When our mind is full of righteous thoughts, we are gods in another dimension. The day I thought of this principle of the Fa, I considered myself a real cultivator. When clarifying the truth with a compassionate and peaceful mind, whomever I talked with agreed to withdraw from the CCP. When clarifying truth with a united mind and body, the effect of saving people will be multiplied.

As Teacher said:

“That's why I've told our students to walk a righteous path and not to let them find an excuse. Once they find a big one they'll ruin you. And that's especially so when it's at the end and they're making a last-ditch effort. When they can't find an excuse they don't dare to persecute you, because then they too would be violating the laws, and they understand that, so there'd be no need for me to eliminate them--the old cosmos's laws would eliminate them. That's because they are old beings who take strictly safeguarding the old laws to be what's most essential. (“Fa-Lecture During the 2003 Lantern Festival at the U.S. West Fa Conference”)

I came to understand from Teacher's Fa that we must walk the path arranged by Teacher to avoid interruption, that in our actual cultivation we must eliminate long-term attachments, so that Teacher, as well as Fa-guardians, will be able to help us. If the old forces should still dare to persecute us, the principles of the old universe would eliminate them without getting Teacher involved.

The aforesaid is only the good side of my cultivation. I still have lots of attachments and shortcomings that need to be eliminated in my actual cultivation.

I am hoping from the bottom of my heart that fellow practitioners who have not stepped forward do quickly return to Dafa cultivation before it's too late. Compassionate Teacher is waiting for you; sentient beings in your dimension are waiting for you. Do you still remember your prehistoric vows that you made with Teacher? Do not miss this hard-to-come-by opportunity that we have waited thousands of years for, and don't leave regrets that will last forever.

This is my understanding on the Fa. Please correct my errors.
