Racing Against Time to Fulfill Our Historic Vows
(Minghui.org) While distributing Falun Dafa truth-clarification materials with some of my fellow practitioners, a patrol officer saw me. The policeman shouted, grabbed me by the arm, took out his phone, and tried to make a call.
There was no fear in my mind, but I wondered why only I ran into this problem. I wondered if this was a xinxing issue. To mitigate the circumstance, I had a strong benevolent thought that if he persecuted me, he would commit a felony and would face elimination when the Fa-rectification reached this dimension.
Policeman Changes Completely
I held the thought firmly: “I am a Dafa disciple and have to make sure that you don't destroy yourself by doing wrong.”
I asked him not to call, to listen to me first, and then decide whether or not to call. He put down the phone. I then patiently explained why Falun Dafa practitioners talk to people about Dafa tirelessly, regardless of the risk to their personal safety.
Actually, I did not say much, but he changed dramatically and completely. “Women like you spend all their time talking to people about this cultivation practice,” he said. “I really admire you. You can go now, I will not arrest you.”
Later I shared with fellow practitioners and looked within for loopholes in my xinxing.
Practitioners Correct Themselves
I believe that Master treats all practitioners the same. I recalled that my first thought was that I should look inward and the second about saving sentient beings. I think what Master wants is for us to change our notions when saving sentient beings and correct ourselves through the Dafa principles. As long as our thoughts are in line with the Fa, Master will protect us. Master said,
"If upon encountering trying circumstances your thinking can be truly righteous, then, when faced with the evil's persecution and when faced with interference, just one sentence of yours fortified with steadfast righteous thoughts can instantly make the evil disintegrate (applause), and it will make those who are being used by the evil turn and flee, it will make the evil's persecution of you dissolve, and it will make the evil's interfering with you disappear without a trace."(“Teaching the Fa at the Western U.S. International Fa Conference”)
When a practitioner encounters interference when distributing truth clarification materials, he or she may send the righteous thought, “Go away now,” and that person may well walk away.
We Need to Do More Than Talk to One Person at a Time
Given China's current economic situation, many people cannot afford a computer, especially in rural areas. Even if some do, they dare not read the articles on the Minghui website for fear the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) will catch them.
Even though practitioners have tried many different ways to let people know the facts about Dafa, there are still many who do not understand Dafa. The mere mention of the word "Dafa" frightens them.
It is really very difficult to rely only on practitioners clarifying the facts about this cultivation practice in person. Some practitioners are fearful because of the CCP's brutal persecution. So it is difficult to clarify the facts from house to house and in a large area.
There are more than one billion Chinese waiting for practitioners to tell them about Dafa, so I think it is necessary to distribute Dafa materials systematically and over a large area.
Practitioners are racing against time, so they can save as many people as possible.
