Coordinate as One to Expand the Capacity to Save People
(Minghui.org) In September 2012, practitioners in eastern Taiwan set up an internet-based calling platform. By using the Internet, we did not have to spend a lot of time traveling to a certain place to make calls. The convenience of using the Internet phones brought everyone together and created one body. It also attracted 20 practitioners to join this project.
Two days after we set up the platform, we realized that we needed to focus on Beijing. Through experience sharing with other practitioners in the Global Calling project, we knew that it was important to focus on cleaning up this central place of evil. We did not want to miss this precious opportunity to save people, so we decided to work with the Global Calling project and do our best to call the numbers in Beijing.
Now, as I think back, it was not hard to set up the platform. The hardest thing was to make sure the platform work was done every day and that there were practitioners calling constantly. The practitioners who participated in the project also realized that the numbers posted on the platform are everyone's responsibility. Some of us called during the day and some called in the evenings after they got off work. The platform gradually became a field of righteous thoughts and capable of saving people. I think those who benefited the most were us.
A practitioner in her 70s shared that when she was working alone, she previously had believed that if she persisted in calling every day, it did not matter how many people she called. Now she felt responsible for the numbers posted on the platform and was trying very hard to make sure that all of the numbers listed were dialed. She also felt that Teacher was pushing her to progress more diligently. This practitioner did not know how to type on a computer. She had her son type all the words she needed in a file saved on the desktop. When she called on the Internet, she simply copied and pasted the words she needed to talk to the other person. She also taught this method to other older practitioners who did not know how to type. Some practitioners felt that this platform expanded the woman's righteous thoughts and capacity to save people. She used to take one rescue case a day and call the numbers listed on the case. After she joined the platform, she could take at least six rescue cases every day.
The platform is a place where practitioners can “Compare in studying, compare in cultivating.” ("Solid Cultivation" from Hong Yin) Several practitioners who left this project for other projects or for family reasons came back again. A husband and wife used to routinely take numbers the rescue project assigned to them and tried to finish calling in a week. Now they call the numbers listed in at least two persecution cases in Beijing every day. One of them made the calls while the other sent righteous thoughts. They have become more assertive in saving people.
A young practitioner who worked in the media project said that, even if he could not make calls every day, seeing others making the calls made him feel a part of the field of righteous thoughts. He thus could keep his righteous thoughts up constantly. A student who went back to school after summer break stayed on the platform. Thus, he was able to seize every opportunity he had to call cases in Beijing. He did not slack off because he left home and lived in a more relaxed environment.
Practitioners' sharing also helped everyone to improve their xinxing. A practitioner said that, as practitioners, our thoughts were very important. The basis of our attitude and mentality when we save people is of crucial importance. Every call comes with elements of cultivation. The people and problems we come across are the levels and realms Teacher arranged for us to attain and the manifestation of the meanings of the Fa principles at that level.
Calling is no longer just a format and a mission to complete. It is being truly compassionate to others and sincerely hoping the other person can understand the truth and be saved. We believe that if we continue to call Beijing with righteous thoughts, we are clearing up the remaining evils there and saving people.
As a matter of fact, the field in Beijing has changed. People who we clarified the truth to seldom cursed now, most of them listen quietly. It is just a matter of how much they listen. Some people were very kind. They listened to us quietly and after we were done talking, they would tell us that they had quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its affiliates long ago. The practitioners in China did a wonderful job. Some people who had never heard of the persecution would recite “Falun Dafa is good” “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” with us after they learned the truth. They kept thanking us on the phone. Many of us were able to talk to local CCP officials and correct their attitude towards Falun Dafa.
The project of calling Beijing is the path Teacher arranged for us to walk a long time ago. It allowed us to become more mature and enabled us to build our mighty virtue. Thank you Teacher.
