The Importance of Clarifying the Truth to Family and Friends
(Minghui.org) The Chinese communist regime's propaganda against Falun Dafa has created many misunderstandings about this spiritual discipline based on the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. Even some family members and friends of our Falun Dafa practitioners hold prejudice against us.
Some family members have even monitored the practitioners in their families, and interfered with their truth-clarification work. Some have gotten into physical fights with the practitioners, threatened them with divorce, and even reported them to the police. Some families even forbade their practitioners from having contact with other practitioners.
These family members’ actions significantly hindered the practitioners from saving people. They themselves might even lose their opportunities to be saved.
Some of our practitioners, however, chose to avoid confronting their families, or even hid their truth-clarification projects from family and friends. This could only lead to more misunderstandings of practitioners.
The people around us have great predestined relationships with Falun Dafa. In our long histories of reincarnation, the number of family members we have had is too many to count. We should not give up clarifying the truth to these people who are now are family members just because of our attachments and notions, or because we are frustrated.
We are talking about an enormous group of people. Had they understood the truth instead of fighting us, they might well be our supporters and helpers. I would like to remind my fellow practitioners to take urgent action to talk to their families and friends regarding why we persist in the practice and why we work hard to put an end to the persecution.
I trust that Master will help us as long as we have the hearts to clarify the truth to our family and friends.
