Using the Wisdom Given by Dafa to Save Sentient Beings
(Minghui.org) I am writing down a few things that I have done in the past years, to report to Master and share with fellow practitioners.
Using the opportunities at work to save sentient beings
The communist regime agents at my work place removed me from my position and assigned me the job of distributing supplies to the employees. This job provides me with opportunities to meet with a lot of people, so I took this opportunity to clarify the truth to people. I normally send forth righteous thoughts first, then tell people to remember “Falun Dafa is good,” and after that, I explain to them the facts of the staged “self-immolation” on Tiananmen Square. Finally, I ask them to quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its affiliated organizations. Sometimes, due time constraints, I had to be very brief. Under those circumstances, I would give them some materials to read later. At first, I was afraid and dared not pass out truth-clarification materials to everyone, and only focused on verbal communication. One day, a person who had previously received some materials from me came and asked for more materials. That encouraged me, and from then on, I let go of my fear.
After I clarified the truth to people, many of them have become my friends. I then further clarify the truth to their families and friends, and thus more people have the chance to learn the truth. I know that Master arranges these opportunities for me.
Besides passing out supplies to employees, I am also responsible for maintaining the furniture for my company. Whenever the repairmen come, I clarify the truth to them while they fix the furniture. By the time they finish fixing the furniture, I've also conveniently finished telling them the truth. In addition, they are also willing to quit CCP and its affiliated organizations. However, when my cultivation state was not stable, the repairmen would not be able to fix the furniture, and neither could I explain the truth clearly to them. When that occurred, I would adjust my mentality, find the attachments and try again, and I would usually be successful. Clarifying the truth to people is a joy for me. As the Fa-rectification progresses, clarifying the truth and helping people to quit the CCP is no longer as difficult.
Distributing materials during my lunch hour
To make the best use of my time, I go to nearby areas to distribute materials at lunch time. Summer in Chongqing is extremely hot. When my cultivation state is good, I do not feel hot at all when I walk under the burning sun; it feels as if I am surrounded by cool air. I know this is encouragement from Master. One day it began to rain right before I planned to leave my house. I asked the sky to hold its rain until after I finished distributing the materials. At that moment, it really did stop raining. The rain began again when I returned home.
Assimilating to the Fa in my life
The truth-clarification materials production site at my home has been working smoothly for five years. In the past, I was afraid to use currency bills with truth-clarifying messages on them, but as I studied the Fa more, I realized that more and more truth-clarifying bills are now being accepted by sentient beings. One day I heard two people having a conversation about the bills, “Look, this bill has words on it.” The other person replied, “Let me see what is says.” As he got the bill, he read, “Chanting ‘Falun Dafa is good’ often will protect you in the face of danger.” After that, he said, “This is Falun Gong. It’s very good. Let me keep it.” But the other person said, “No, I want to keep it.”
I also make many copies of Shen Yun DVDs. One day I was on my way back to my hometown. As soon as I got on the bus, I saw a Taoist. Immediately I knew that Master had arranged the opportunity for me. He smiled at me. Then I took the seat next to his, and said, “It’s hard to see Taoists nowadays. It’s hard now to cultivate in Taoism.” He replied, “It’s true.” After that, I began to clarify the truth to him. I also gave him a copy of the Shen Yun DVD. He was very excited to receive it.
Opposing the persecution to save sentient beings
When I was at work one day in 2011, I saw that the online headlines were still showing anti-Falun Gong propaganda on our company’s website. I began to look for who was responsible for the website and found out that the parent company had branched into different subsidiaries in 2004. Due to issues related to the transition, no one was taking responsibility for updating the online news. To solve the problem, I went to the company that designed the website and asked them to delete all the old news, but they told me they were no longer responsible for the maintenance of the website. Then I went to talk to the office in charge of the website, but they too said that since they did not have full control of the website yet, they were not responsible either. Afterwards, when I thought about it, I knew that I had not clarified the truth well. I began to search inward and realized that one day that I should go directly to the managers of both sides to clarify the truth. After realizing so, I took action and the news was taken off from the website.
Studying the Fa well is the foundation for saving sentient beings
To help save sentient beings, we need to first maintain righteous thoughts. Studying the Fa well is the foundation for our own cultivation, and after that, we can successfully clarify the truth. Since I work during the day, I spend about three to four hours in the evening to study the Fa. If I am not busy at work, I read the Fa online. Because I have the Fa in my mind, my words and deeds are in accordance with the Fa. If I do not study the Fa well, I cannot do a good job in saving sentient beings.
Our company has an internal broadcasting system, and sometimes they play popular songs and CCP propaganda music. The person in charge of the system also works in the same office with me. When my righteous thoughts were strong, I clarified the truth to him and told him not to play the evil CCP songs. Sometimes I found myself enjoying the popular songs. Since that single thought was not righteous, those songs would enter my mind and interfere with me in the evenings when I studied the Fa. I tried to use righteous thoughts to eliminate them, but the result was not very good. Then I began to examine my thoughts, and realized that cultivators need to distinguish right from wrong from the perspective of the Fa. Human beings regard the songs as good because they contain human sentiment, whereas as a cultivator, I should let go of human sentiments and notions. Only then can I walk out of humanness, and achieve the enlightenment of a divine being.
Master saved me from hell, and there are no words in this world for me to use to express my gratitude for what He has done for me. I can only do the three things well and help save more sentient beings so as to fulfill my vow.
