The Process of Clarifying the Truth Is Also a Process of Cultivating Ourselves
(Clearwisdom.net) I work for a small hotel. The local police department is next to the backyard of this hotel. At the beginning I dared not clarify the truth at work, so I sent forth righteous thoughts every day to eliminate the evil.
One day I was cleaning a car for a customer and wanted to tell him the facts about Falun Dafa. I asked Master to help me and said to the customer in my mind, “I can offer you salvation.” I was calm and told the customer that Falun Dafa had spread all over the world, that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) had staged the Tiananmen Square “self-immolation” to discredit Falun Dafa, and that a documentary had analyzed the entire incident to prove this. I also told him to quit the CCP to be saved. He listened carefully and at the end said: “Please help me quit CCP. I will remember that Falun Dafa is good.”
Initially I helped customers with what they needed, spoke with them, and clarified the truth when I got a chance.
The manager once had a severe stomachache and walked up the stairs very slowly. I thought whether I should tell her the facts about Falun Dafa. If I told her, would she believe me? I asked myself: “Didn't Master tell you to offer people salvation? She is in so much pain. Do you have any compassion? She is a being waiting to saved. Go, tell her!”
I took a Shen Yun DVD with me and knocked on the manager's door. I saw that she was sweating because of the pain. I told her: “Falun Dafa is good. Please watch this video. You have never seen such a good show before. The costumes and the backdrops are so beautiful that it's like being in heaven.” Then I left. I sent forth righteous thoughts and asked Master to help me. In less than half an hour my manager went downstairs and said: “Falun Dafa is so amazing. I'll start to practice it beginning tomorrow.”
A few days later, one of my manager's friends came to see me and said he wanted to know more about Falun Dafa. We talked for about one hour. Sometimes the manager would ask me and another practitioner to go to her home. The other practitioner later persuaded the manager's family to quit the CCP.
Offering predestined people salvation
One of my coworkers is also a practitioner. We cooperated with each other in clarifying the truth. When she spoke with people, I would send forth righteous thoughts and hand the person a DVD. Once we had eight people in the room. Six of them wanted the DVD. One of them even asked for multiple copies that he could give to his relatives and friends.
One customer refused to listen to the facts. We immediately looked inside ourselves. I sent forth righteous thoughts in the hall nearby, and the other practitioner continued to speak with the customer. Soon the customer agreed to quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations. Later on the practitioner said, “As soon as you started sending forth righteous thoughts, I felt a strong energy field.”
Sometimes when people didn't want to listen I would sing "Falun Dafa is Good" and "Coming for You." I told them that the latter song was written by a Falun Dafa practitioner about an event in which 36 practitioners from 13 countries came to Tiananmen Square and opened a banner reading, “Falun Dafa is good!” as they appealed for the end of the persecution of Falun Dafa. Afterward, some of the people who didn't want to listen before would immediately say, “Falun Dafa is good. Please help us quit the CCP.” We really feel that Master is bringing predestined people to us.
One of the bartenders at the hotel knows the truth and often reads Dafa books. She said, “Even though I do not practice the exercises, I will follow Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.”
This bartender has even told her customers, “Falun Dafa is good.” I told her, “Using paper currency with truth-clarification sentences written on them will also help rescue people. When the customers read the words, they will know that Falun Dafa is good and that quitting the CCP can save their lives.” She said, “Then please bring me more of these bills, so that more people can be saved.” She has handed out many of these bills.
One day when police came to the hotel while I was explaining the facts about Falun Dafa to people there, she sent me a text message to alert me as soon as she saw the officers close by. Later she told me, “I was risking my life to send you that message.”
Never stop offering people salvation
I have cooperated with the other practitioner in doing things such as hanging banners, putting up adhesive posters, and painting words at many different places. We have experienced many miracles.
Once we went to a village by motorcycle to distribute truth-clarification materials. Four people rode on one motorcycle. A small river blocked our way. How could the road to saving people be blocked? We asked for Master's help. Soon we found a spot in the river that was iced over, so our motorcycle could pass over. We pushed the motorcycle carefully across the river and even heard the sound of ice breaking, but we got the motorcycle across.
Although we had never been to this village, we didn't get lost. At midnight we sent forth righteous thoughts in the woods, and then we distributed truth-clarification materials. There were many dogs in the village. We all said to the dogs in our minds, “Please keep quiet. We came here to save people—to save your owner, and you, too.” Amazingly, not one dog barked.
The Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party in fellow practitioner's hands were shining like flashlights. The posters put on walls and even the plastic bags that contained our materials were also shining in the dark.
There were also a number of meteors in the sky. It made it easier to hang the banners, as if someone from the sky was helping us to hang them. We sent forth righteous thoughts for each banner. Even now, one month later, some of them are still there--including one banner in a spot near the gate of the local police department.
My experience is that the process of telling people the facts about Falun Dafa and the persecution is also the process of practicing cultivation. Master asked us to offer people salvation, so we need to just do it. During the process, we can eliminate many attachments, like fear and impatience. We can also strengthen our righteous thoughts.
