Experiences Clarifying the Truth Using Cell Phones
(Clearwisdom.net) Greetings, Master! Greetings, fellow practitioners!
Two years ago I read an experience sharing article from the Minghui website (Chinese version of Clearwisdom.net) about a fellow practitioner clarifying the truth using cell phones. I wanted to do the same, but nearby practitioners didn't know how to do it. I thought it would be great if I could find someone to help me, since I really did not know where to start. This was actually also an attachment to dependence. I wanted to have something ready for me. I thought this method of using cell phones really could save sentient beings. Should I not do it because no one knew how? Am I a disciple of Master who wants to assist Master to rectify the Fa? As long as it can save sentient beings, and my thoughts are righteous, Master will help me.
I downloaded the pertinent articles from a technical discussion blog and printed them out. I researched them carefully and learned what text messages were, how to send a message out to a group, what type of cell phones have this function, how to operate the phone securely, etc. After I had a basic understanding, a fellow practitioner told me one morning that a practitioner could help me purchase this kind of cell phone and was willing to teach me how to use it. Since the practitioner was very busy, he could not come often. If I could master it, I could pass on the knowledge to other practitioners. The practitioner spent one morning teaching me. Since I was prepared, I understood what he said. I learned how to use the cell phone safely, how to change the serial number, how to install software to send messages to a group, how to edit the messages to avoid blocking, how to use the SIM cards, etc. I have used cell phones to clarify the truth ever since.
In the beginning I didn't make phone calls or send MMS. I just sent out short text messages. I taught several practitioners in my area. They all joined me to clarify the truth using cell phones. We first come up with appropriate short text messages. For example, when targeting the police who persecute Falun Dafa practitioners, we wrote in messages saying that goodness will be rewarded and evil will punished, and advise them to do good. We also give examples, such as, "Over 10 out of 100 employees in Nanguan Prison of Dalian City found out they have cancer due to their involvement in the persecution. Don't be blinded by your interest in continuing to persecute Falun Gong practitioners. The result will be harm to others and yourself. It will bring disasters to your family and yourself!" "The Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) brutal campaign over the several years has resulted in countless people being killed. The average person suffers in the end. Who still believes that the CCP doesn't lie? Play it safe, protect your conscience, save virtue for your children and grandchildren, and give yourself a way out." "After the Cultural Revolution, Li Chuanxin, the head of Beijing Police Department, committed suicide. Over 793 police officers and 17 military officers who were loyal to the CCP were executed secretly in Yunnan Province. All their families received was a death notice. Those who participate in the persecution Falun Gong will meet the same ends." We also use the case of Ren Changxia, head of a police department, who persecuted practitioners. She met with karmic retribution and died. We get some content directly from the Minghui website. We also get the phone numbers of those who participate in the persecution from the website. I worked on this project with another practitioner. She sends out text messages to the phone numbers collected on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, and I send messages out to the phone numbers collected on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays.
Sending text messages is also a process to improve xinxing. In the beginning we targeted those who worked in the courts and public security. The first time I sent short text messages on a bus, my heart was beating very fast. I was excited and nervous at the same time. I was glad I could save sentient beings using this method, but I was nervous because I sent the messages to police officers who persecuted practitioners. I still had the attachment of fear. The first time I sent out messages to 10 people and then stopped. I calmed down and remembered Master's words,
"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")
I thought I was doing the most righteous things to eliminate evil, to save sentient beings, and to assist Master in rectifying the Fa. No one dared to interfere. Evil and bad people who are used by the evil should be afraid; I should not be afraid. At the same I sent forth righteous thoughts to eliminate all evil beings and factors that interfered the clarifying the truth using cell phones. Each message I sent out was a sharp sword pointing at the evils and eliminating them. With righteous thoughts I was no longer afraid. I felt I was giant and the evil was weak. My field had been cleared, and I could breathe easily. I felt very grateful for Master's protection and strengthening.
Everything since then has gone well regarding clarifying the truth using cell phones. Even when phone cards are firmly blocked, I can still send out messages. Each time, I send messages to tens or hundreds of people. I have added my own phone numbers to the groups, to test the results, and I received all the messages. As we are sending, we need to pause at times. I use this time to send forth righteous thoughts to eliminate evil and interference. Sometimes I memorize the Fa, and most of the time I memorize Lunyu. My xinxing has improved. I have eliminated the attachments of anxiousness, hatred towards police officers, the attachment of fighting, complacency, the show-off mentality, and the attachment of fear. When I encounter a problem, I remember the relevant Fa. I cleanse myself using the Fa and correct myself based on the Fa. My righteous thoughts have become stronger and stronger. I enlightened that I needed to study the Fa more, so I can remember the Fa when problems come up.
"The Fa can break all attachments, the Fa can destroy all evil, the Fa can shatter all lies, and the Fa can strengthen righteous thoughts." ("Drive Out Interference" from Essentials for Further Advancement II)
One time I sent out one text message to a policeman who persecutes Falun Gong practitioners. He replied with bad curses. My heart was not moved, and I thought he was very pitiful. With the heart to save him, I sent him a text message and told him that I was doing him good and that he should be not deceived by the CCP's lies and die with the CCP. He should leave an escape route for himself and his family. I told him I was telling him the truth to give him another chance. I sent him five messages, and he replied four times. His tone became milder and milder each time with less cursing. During the process I sent righteous thoughts. At the same time I was looking inward to find my shortcomings. I noticed that if I did well with Fa study, that many people replied with thanks. If I did not do well with Fa study and relaxed, many replied with bad words and curses. Of course there are also exceptions. Studying the Fa is very important. My righteous thoughts are strong and the interference is less when I study the Fa well, so the result of saving people is good.
I often send text messages to everyday people. The content includes information about Dafa spreading widely, the truth about the staged Tiananmen self-immolation, and the hidden character stone that is 200 million years old in Guizhou. I send truth clarifying messages with greetings, especially on holidays. Most people can accept what I say in my messages. Of course there are people who refuse and reply with sarcasm. For example, I sent the last paragraph of "A Time for Fireworks and Celebration" from Clearwisdom.net (http://www.clearwisdom.net/html/articles/2011/7/7/126575.html) which reads, "Jiang has committed an endless litany of heinous, unforgivable crimes, and the consequences for such a being’s sins during life do not stop at his death. After Jiang’s death, aside from being forever reviled by the masses, he will suffer for all eternity in hell to repay his monstrous crimes. The demise of this vicious, shameless embodiment of evil will be celebrated by all." I wanted more people to know this, and received many replies. Many agreed, some didn't care, and some were critical. I wrote down their phone numbers and have been sending out different messages depending on their responses. For those who agree I send: "My dear friends, quit the Chinese Communist Party and its affiliated organization right away so that you will be safe." For those who don't care, I send them "Trial" and "Confessions of Jiang." I send the people from the judicial, prosecutorial, and public security departments "A letter to those who work in the judicial, prosecutorial, and public security departments" and "A letter to police officers." I recently sent "A Time for Fireworks and Celebration" to everyone.
Sending pre-recorded phone calls is also a process of improving xinxing. When I study the Fa well, I can do well facing tests. Many people will listen, and most will listen to the entire message. Otherwise, fewer people will listen.
One time Practitioner A and I went to another city to teach local practitioners how to access the Internet and print. We also helped them to solve some computer problems. Although we were tired, we did not forget to study the Fa or do the exercises, and keep xinxing in mind. On the way back, I made over 20 calls, each six minutes long. Only three or four people didn't listen to the entire message. This had never happened before. I was very happy, thanks to Master's encouragement.
A few people from the courts and public security will not listen to the entire message, especially police officers who persecute practitioners. Some hang up the phone right away after hearing it's Falun Gong. Some don't dare to pick up the phone if you call again. If I call several days later, I sometimes find that the phone numbers have been changed. Some people also curse, but I am not moved. I remember Master's words,
"Never mind that the evil beings are so rampant, they're all quaking with fear and trepidation, they're afraid. Of course, before being completely cleaned out the wicked beings will still direct evil people to do bad things. The evil people lose all rationality when they're being controlled by the evil, but once they calm down they're afraid. Every phone call from our students shocks them to the point that they can't sleep at night, they're that afraid." (“Teaching the Fa at the 2003 Midwest-U.S. Fa Conference”)
Even though they didn't finish listening, and they don't answer subsequent calls, the phone calls have the effort of shocking the evil. Evil in other dimensions is eliminated, so the bad people are afraid. When I make pre-recorded phone calls, I am sending forth righteous thoughts towards this person, eliminating evil that controls the person. My righteous thoughts continue hitting the evil while I am strengthening my righteous thoughts. Only a few police officers can finish listening. I hope I can awaken their conscience and that they won't participate in future persecution. So they have a chance to be saved in the end.
I later added MMS functionality to my cell phone. MMS can contain more information, including pictures. It's another method to save sentient beings. At first I just forwarded messages provided by a fellow practitioner, but the contents were limited. I found some very good information on the Minghui website, and I thought if I could make MMS messages myself, it would have a better effect. But I did not know how to do it and was very anxious. Fellow practitioners in the area wished I could that, too. With this wish, I told my husband, who is also a practitioner. He also didn't know how to do it, but he had some background making images on a PC. He asked Master to help him and figured it out in one evening. He taught me right away. I now make MMS messages using the content from Minghui, and the MMS messages are published on the Minghui website later. I realized that Master will help us as long as we are walking on the righteous path, saving sentient beings. Master has already paved the road, and all we need to do is to follow it. I experienced what Master said in Zhuan Falun,
“Cultivation depends on one’s own efforts, while the transformation of gong is done by one’s master. It is good enough if you have this wish. It is the master who actually does this, as you are simply unable to do it.”
MMS messages help me to clarify the truth better, since MMS can carry more information. I send out three MMS messages to each phone number. Most responses are positive. Many people thank me after receiving them. Some don't agree with me, but still thank me for the greeting. Some ask questions. I send some people text messages or recorded phone calls to clarify the truth further. Some want to quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations. I also answer questions about how to quit. I receive their thank you notes after helping them quit the CCP.
Every time I clarify the truth using cell phones, I send forth righteous thoughts first to eliminate the interference in other dimensions. I always pay attention to security, and I don't get lax just because I have done this for a long time. I will correct myself if the thought of relaxing pops up. I can keep righteous thoughts for a long time. I don't have any problems with my two cell phones, and very few messages I send out are blocked. They are my helpers to save sentient beings.
The above is my experience on clarifying the truth using cell phones. Sometimes I am not patient or not responsible enough. I will follow Master's requirement to study the Fa more. I will cultivate in the Fa validation process "‘til no single omission is found" (“Cultivating Amidst the Delusion” from Hong Yin) I will measure myself against the Fa and save more people in the last historic moments.
Thank you Master for saving me!!!
