Illiteracy Is No Obstacle to Producing Truth-Clarification Materials and Helping to Save People
Greetings, revered Teacher!
Greetings, fellow practitioners!
I am an elderly practitioner over 60 years old. Since I'm illiterate, I asked a fellow practitioner to record my cultivation experiences. At this time, I would like to share the changes and improvement of my xinxing after my work on producing truth-clarification materials.
During sharing sessions with fellow practitioners, I realized that I needed to study the Minghui website (Chinese version of Clearwisdom) to read articles, learn how to produce truth-clarification materials, and then distribute them in order to save people. Several practitioners helped me to buy a computer and printer. I had the equipment, but I didn't know how to use any of it. Another practitioner taught my son how to use everything and asked him to teach me. I had some fear initially, and my son didn't want to teach me, either. Due to my faith in Teacher, Dafa and the supernormal abilities provided by Dafa, Teacher strengthened my ability to learn the basics of downloading files from the Minghui site and how to produce the materials. My fear disappeared gradually as I continued working on these tasks. I felt that the whole process was so well-designed. Had I realized this earlier, I would've bought the equipment long ago.
My printer is a sentient being and has actually helped me to eliminate many human notions. For example, sometimes it would suddenly stop in the middle of printing something. At first I didn't understand that this meant for me to look within— just thought that the printer was having a problem. I later realized that I should look within first, to determine where I didn't do well. I found that whenever I had conflicts with other practitioners or family members, the printer would stop working for me and had paper jams, etc. I studied Teacher's lecture “Dafa Disciples Must Study the Fa” and realized that Dafa practitioners should perform all undertakings to the highest standard. For example, I didn't pay much attention to packaging the materials. Sometimes I put them in an envelope, and other times I didn't; sometimes I didn't seal the envelope. I now understand that I should be careful about things like that.
As for clarifying the truth, I tell everyone that I can talk to the facts about Falun Gong and advise them to quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its affiliated organizations. I've clarified the facts about Falun Gong to everyone visiting our home, such as my son's friends and colleagues or people just passing by my home. Most of them have accepted what I said. I once saw an elderly man as I was going to join a group of practitioners to send righteous thoughts. I approached him and asked, “How are you doing? Have you heard of the 'three withdrawals?'” (This is a term used when people agree to withdraw from the CCP, the Youth League, and/or the Young Pioneers). He asked, “What is it?” I explained everything to him. He said that he was not a CCP member but that he'd joined the Youth League. I suggested that he quit the League in order to save himself. He said, “Sure!” I told him to remember “Falun Dafa is good, and Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” He was very grateful. I also gave him a Shen Yun Performing Arts VCD and asked him if he had a VCD player at home. He replied, “I'll go to my grandson's home to watch it.” I saw tears in his eyes as he took the Shen Yun VCD. I knew that his knowing side was moved after realizing that he was saved.
Previously, I had a notion that it was difficult to clarify the truth about Falun Gong to elderly people. I now no longer have that notion and will just do what Teacher has asked us to do - to not miss anyone with predestined relationships. I will do the three things better, support the group, and give of myself completely.
Please point out anything not on the Fa.
Thank you, Teacher!
Thank you, fellow practitioners!
