(Minghui.org) Master has stated,

Dafa disciples, you are golden light in the mortal world, the hope of the world’s people, Fa-disciples who help Master, and future Fa-Kings.” (“Congratulatory Message” from Essentials of Diligent Progress Vol. III)

During the past 14 years, as the evil was relentlessly persecuting Falun Gong, I never viewed myself as a victim of persecution. I'm a cultivator, a practitioner of “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance,” so wherever I go I know it's another chance, another group of people, to whom I can clarify the truth.

Master does not acknowledge this evil test, and in my vocabulary there is no such word as “persecution,” because I know clearly I'm here to assist Master in Fa-rectification and save people.

Master said,

But the reality is, each Dafa disciple's life has been tightly wed to, like links in a chain, his cultivation. So when you relax yourself, it amounts to relaxing in your cultivation.” (“Fa Teaching at the 2009 Greater New York International Fa Conference”)

Master also said,

Also, with those people that you run into by chance, who you run into in daily life, and the people you run into at work, you should all clarify the truth to them. Even when in your daily life you pass by people so quickly that you don't have a chance to talk to them, you should still leave them with your compassion and kindness. Don't lose those who should be saved, especially those with predestined connections.” (“Teaching the Fa at the 2003 Atlanta Fa Conference”)

For the last 14 years, truth-clarification has become an inseparable part of my daily life and work.

Going Out to Clarify the Truth

On weekends and public holidays, I bring materials to places where crowds of people gather, such as parks and markets, to clarify the truth. If people accept the information, I encourage them to quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its affiliated organizations. If they refuse, I don't stop, but keep looking for people to talk to. Each time I go out I'm usually able to hand out a lot of materials and help people quit the Party. I try to not miss any opportunities to clarify the facts to people I run into.

Clarifying the Truth at Work

In today's China, the law exists in name only and there's no longer any fairness or justice. All sectors in society operate under “hidden rules.” It's difficult for me to conduct myself as a cultivator while balancing my everyday life well.

With Master's teaching, “Puts a stop to its downward slide.” (“Illuminating All” from Hong Yin Vol. II) in my mind, I opened up a new field at my workplace and in our professional sector. Everything is done openly and transparently.

I regard my work and my contact with people as great opportunities to save them. I always have truth-clarification materials with me, hand them out to everyone I meet, and ask them to choose for themselves. I tell them that I'm a Falun Gong practitioner, and then start clarifying the facts to them.

I once handled a legal case which involved both sides, as well as their family members, their lawyers, and insurance company staff. There were more than ten guest listeners. The two sides were deadlocked over compensation, and one side even fabricated some false evidence.

I took out some truth-clarification materials and said, “I practice Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance. My Master told us about the principle of “no loss, no gain” and there is always loss in gain. If something belongs to you, you won't lose it, and you cannot get what isn't yours by fighting for it. Even if you get it you may lose more as a result. It's not helping anyone if you keep arguing this way.”

I said, “Yes, an accident happened, but it wasn't done on purpose. Let's all take a benevolent attitude and look at the matter from the other side's perspective a bit more so we can resolve the issue properly.”

I then started clarifying the truth and told them what Falun Gong was about, and why Heaven would destroy the CCP. One lawyer gave me a thumbs-up and said, “Well said! I truly admire you Falun Gong people! I'll be the first to quit the CCP in my real name!” More than ten people quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations on the spot and accepted truth-clarification materials. Both sides then made concessions and the case came to a satisfactory conclusion.

On another occasion, a man in his seventies told me that his son was unfilial towards him. The man used to be the CCP secretary of a village, and worked as a CCP cadre for over twenty years. He was deeply brainwashed by the Party culture. I clarified the truth to him many times, but each time he refused to listen and said bad things to me in anger.

I knew this was my opportunity. I said, “Confucius taught people about 'filial piety', but the Communist Party is only interested 'fighting'. During the 'Cultural Revolution', people were told to draw a clear line with those being purged. Sons fought their fathers. Married couples fought with each other. Even villagers fought with each another. Our sense of conscience and kindness was destroyed, along with our traditional morals and values which Chinese people upheld for thousands of years.”

The old man said, “You're right!”

I also talked about the fact that 80 million Chinese people died as a result of the series of CCP political movements, and the principle of good being rewarded with good and evil being met with evil. The old man said, “I've never thought about this before. I just felt that as a Communist Party member, I should do whatever the Party told me to do and in whatever way I was ordered. Now I understand. The Party deserves to be destroyed.”

I smiled and asked him, “Do you want to quit the CCP now?” He immediately said, “Yes, yes, I quit.” We later talked to his son and resolved the issue of provision for his father.

A colleague once invited a few friends to have a meal together, and I accepted his invitation. I saw two police officers from a detention center waiting there. The colleague introduced us.

During the meal, I started to clarify the truth. I talked about the wide spread of Falun Gong around the world and the brutal persecution practitioners have suffered in China. I also talked about Bo Xilai and Wang Lijun's crimes of harvesting organs of living Falun Gong practitioners, as well as their due retributions as a result.

The two police officers listened carefully. They were very sympathetic towards Falun Gong and angry with the evildoers. One of them said, “We know Falun Gong practitioners are good people, but we didn't know they were persecuted so cruelly by the CCP. It's unthinkable. I'm so angry.”

I also talked about the movement of quitting the CCP and its affiliated organizations, and said, “Let me help you quit the CCP using aliases.” The other officer said, “Why bother with an alias? I'll quit it using the same name I joined it with!” I was deeply touched by what he said. Later, many people I clarified the truth to chose to quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations in their own names.

Master said,

Though an evil fog still lingers over China
Awareness of Dafa is spreading to each house
Lives are rescued, minds gradually awakened
Waking, police and citizens cease to obstruct
The masses know the evil Party is done for
All are talking about the CCP’s cruel and evil deeds
Evildoers and their head are seeking a way out
Traditional ways are returning to rectify China
(“Glimpses of Goodness” from Hong Yin III)

I've come to understand that the Fa-rectification has progressed forward another big step, and the Fa now has even higher requirements of us.

One businessman quit the CCP on the spot after I clarified the facts to him. He has a good understanding about the persecution and is very supportive of practitioners. He even actively advocates for Falun Gong.

When he had a chance to talk to government officials, he said, “There are so many Falun Gong practitioners in China. They have been persecuted so badly for more than a decade, but they have never done anything harmful to society. Instead, they still try to be good people at work and in their everyday lives. They never fight back when they're beaten or insulted. Just for this, I'd say they are extraordinary.” The officials agree and say, “What you're saying is true.”

Because he has such righteous thoughts about Falun Gong, I exchanged rolls of paper money bills with him that had truth-clarification messages written on them, so they would circulate more quickly.

Clarifying the Truth when Rescuing Fellow Practitioners

When fellow practitioners are arrested, we should try to rescue them and use the opportunity to save those who work in the legal system.

Once, while I was distributing the materials with other practitioners, one of them called me and told me that the police discovered what we were doing, and that a fellow practitioner had been arrested. I finished handing out the materials and went to clarify the truth to the officer who arrested the practitioner. Still, the practitioner was pushed into the police car.

When I got back to town, a practitioner and I drove in my car to go clarify the truth to the heads of the police department. Things went quite smoothly at the home of the deputy head of the police department. He quit the CCP and agreed to do his best to help with the case.

We then drove to the head of the police department's home. When he opened the door he said angrily, “You've told people that I'm an evil person. What do you want now?” I tried to clarify the facts to him calmly, but wasn't successful, and his wife also said something nasty to us. I wasn't able to keep control of myself and talked back, saying something like “Good will be rewarded with good, and evil met with evil” and “You need to position yourself,” etc... In the end, they threw us out.

I looked within afterward and realized that I still had a fighting mentality and was impatient.

When we went to the detention center the next morning, we learned that the practitioner had been transferred to the provincial women's forced labor camp. I felt very bad.

Two local practitioners were facing trial in early August this year. A fellow practitioner and I went to see the chief judge. When I told him we came about the case of a fellow practitioner, he flew into a rage and shouted, “How dare you come here!…”

I looked at him calmly while sending righteous thoughts, thinking, “I'm no longer the same person I was a few years ago. Your anger doesn't have any effect. I will save you!”

The fellow practitioner walked up to him and said kindly, “Don't get so angry. It's not good for your health...” Meanwhile, I kept sending righteous thoughts.

When the judge calmed down, we further clarified the facts to him. We told him about the bitter life the practitioner had before, and the brutal persecution she suffered during the past 14 years. We also told him about the practitioner's kindness and her talent.

The judge was touched by what we said. In the end, he shook my hand and said, “I'm sorry I was very rude just now. I'll do my best to help.” Later, he quit the CCP. The case is still proceeding and we are putting more effort into rescuing her.

I've never held any fear during the past 14 years since we entered the Fa-rectification cultivation period. I've made use of various opportunities to clarify the truth to save people, and to fulfill my sacred mission. I know I still need to do better in cultivating compassion. I still lack kindness and still have human notions and attachments. I will cultivate well every thought and return home with Master.
