Letting Go of Attachments and Dedicating Myself to Saving Lives
(Minghui.org) A few months ago my mother passed away. I could not let go of my sentiment towards her. I was so depressed and sad that blood streamed out of my mouth and nose. I could not concentrate when I studied the Fa, and I felt that my mind was not pure when I sent righteous thoughts. I wiped off the blood and began to clarify the truth through the Internet. When I helped the second person quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its affiliates, the blood stopped. I was so grateful for Teacher's grace that I began to cry. I realized that I should let go of my attachment and do what needed to be done.
The following is my recent experience in clarifying the truth.
After I read “20th Anniversary Fa Teaching” several times, the phrase I remembered the most was,
“So, as Dafa disciples you’ve seen that the situation is changing rapidly, and this is a reflection here in the human world of the cosmos’s Fa-rectification.”
Since the beginning of this year, I've noticed that people been have eager to know the truth, and the situation is changing dramatically. I know that Teacher is eager to save the sentient beings, and I've realized that we need to speed up our pace in clarifying the truth. The people from China I meet through the Internet inquire about the facts every day.
Early this year, Wang Lijun fled to the U.S. Embassy in Chengdu and revealed the dark secrets of the persecution of Falun Gong, including organ harvesting. Since then, in many places in China, people have been giving their fingerprints to demand that the Chinese authorities release the Falun Gong practitioners they illegally arrested and imprisoned. All of these incidents make truth clarification a lot easier.
Once I met someone on the Internet who kept saying negative things about Falun Dafa. In the end, he was very upset and told me to shut up. However, he typed a number on the screen—it was his cell phone number. I quickly called him and continued to talk to him. He listened to me attentively and told me, “In fact, I know very little about Falun Gong.” On the surface, he misunderstood Falun Gong, but his knowing side was asking for help! We spoke for a long time. Later he said, “I am at work now and can't stay on the phone. Please call me back after 8:30 p.m.” I called him back because I wanted him to quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations. He quit the CCP and sent me a message online: “If you have anymore information, from now on, just go ahead and tell me.”
There are numerous cases like this. Once someone told me, “I quit the CCP and its affiliates with an alias a long time ago on the Internet. I have heard the faccts many times and I tell other people the same. I am a propagator of the truth.” Another person told me he got a phone call from overseas and he quit on the phone. Some quit after receiving a fax. Several quit when they traveled overseas.
Many incidents have made me feel that we really should seize the time and clarify the truth aggressively. Teacher said in “Teaching the Fa at the Fa Conference at the U.S. Capital:”
“The changes in the overall state of things have been large. You have seen that many things still face obstacles, but once all of those obstacles are done away with, this affair will end. The current state of things owes precisely to those things not having been cleared away yet, to there still being many people who are lost because of the lies, and to there still being many who are unwilling to learn the truth. But this state is constantly melting away, much like ice does. Once it has all melted away, this environment will no longer exist. Those who want to cultivate and improve will have no setting in which to do so. Those who want to save sentient beings will find that human beings all understand things, and so there will be no need to do that.”
Many touching things have happened when I clarified the truth. A person who had misunderstandings about Falun Dafa gradually understood the true situation. He shouted his and his wife's real names and told me that they had both heard the facts and wanted to quit the CCP and its affiliates with their real names. After quitting the CCP and its affiliates, many people told me that they wanted to learn Falun Dafa. One of them said, “From now on, if I feel bad, I will shout 'Falun Dafa is good' so the gods and Buddha can hear me.” Another person, after quitting the CCP and its affiliates, said to me politely, “Thank you! I feel a huge weight has been lifted off my heart. I feel really good.”
Clarifying the truth is very easy in the current environment. However, sometimes I was not in a good state of cultivation. I did not keep a peaceful mind to explain things patiently and missed the opportunity to save people. Teacher said in “Dafa Disciples Must Study the Fa - Fa Teaching Given at the 2011 Washington DC Metro Area Fa Conference:”
“As they see it, 'If you are to save me, you have to reach my level first, and you must have this measure of mighty virtue before you can save me. Without such mighty virtue, without having reached my stature, how could you save me?'”
I hope that practitioners put in more time studying the Fa and cultivating while doing Dafa work. If we want to save more people, we must progress a lot more diligently and let go of attachments.
