(Clearwisdom.net) In the new article “The Ultimate Objective of Clarifying the Truth,” Master once again explains the importance of clarifying the truth. He points out the fundamental reason we need to clarify the truth, and directs practitioners to clarify the truth.
Under the arrangement of the old forces, the evil Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has been slandering and defaming Falun Dafa by fabricating rumors. They have been using lies to deceive people. Last year the Party organized an activity called “rejecting the cult.” During the activity, they asked all family members for their signatures as a commitment. This is another crime perpetrated by the regime to make people hate Master and Dafa. Many people have been deceived by the CCP's lies and have misunderstood Falun Dafa as a result. This has caused me to encounter great resistance when I clarify the truth about Falun Dafa to people, and I have not been able to break through this. My old ways of clarifying the truth and persuading people to quit the affiliated organizations of the CCP have also not been effective. I became very discouraged after being turned away several times, and thought, “I work so hard to tell you the truth and save you. Not only do you not appreciate it, but you even ridicule me and say disrespectful words about Dafa. You are truly hopeless. Just wait for the day the Fa rectifies the human world and see that what Master said is true. Just wait—you will have to bear all the consequences of what you are doing to Dafa now.”
After reading Master's new article, I suddenly understood that a large part of the attitude of everyday people towards Dafa is due to the evil Party's deceit. These people are blinded by the Party's atheistic ideology and its philosophy of struggle. They are on a very dangerous path due to their hatred of gods and Buddhas, and their hatred of Dafa. If on their path towards consummation, Dafa practitioners don't save these people and change their fate, they will face certain destruction. The resistance Dafa practitioners face when clarifying the truth and saving sentient beings is entirely caused by the old forces. The reason why the effect of our saving sentient beings is not so obvious is because we are not diligent enough in studying the Fa and we don't have a solid foundation. What I say when I clarify the facts doesn't have enough mighty power of the Fa, which results in everyday people ignoring me. I even hurt Dafa's reputation because I don't know what to say after the listener offers a few contradictions.
After I repeatedly studied Master's article, I realized that I was lacking in many areas in doing the three things. But Master, please rest assured that I will seriously look inward and find my attachments. I will be more diligent and reach the standards that Master requires in the Fa. I will cultivate myself well and keep myself in the best state so that I can clarify the truth well and save more sentient beings.
Thank you, Master, for your boundless grace and salvation!
