Direct Communication Is More Effective Than Automatic Voice Phone Calling
(Minghui.org) Practitioners in my area have used cell phones for several years to send messages about the persecution of Falun Dafa through automated recordings. A lot of people listened to the three-minute message, but not many quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its affiliated organizations. This told me that direct communication was needed to help people truly understand the truth.
Another practitioner agreed to send righteous thoughts when I called people. However, it was not easy to adjust to direct communication. When someone answered the phone, I got nervous and the person hung up after I said a few sentences and refused to answer the phone when I called back.
So our group studied the Fa more, increased sending righteous thoughts and encouraged each other. We also read articles regarding phone calling issues published on the Minghui website. Most importantly, we asked Master to strengthen us before we made phone calls.
Initially, we could only persuade one person to quit the CCP during the first hour. Then more people agreed to quit the CCP. As we gained experience, our efforts bore fruit.
Letting Go of Fear
During one phone call, the person asked me for my personal information and recorded our conversation. He even berated and threatened me before he hung up. I felt fear in my heart. So, I sent righteous thoughts to void the recording he made. Although I was still fearful, I made phone calls the next day.
Master hinted in a dream that I had to let go of fear. After I woke up, I thought that my enlightenment quality must be poor, because I have Master and the Fa, so nothing could harm me.
“The old forces don't dare to oppose our clarifying the truth or saving sentient beings. What's key is to not let them take advantage of the gaps in your state of mind when you do things.”(“Teaching the Fa at the 2002 Fa Conference in Boston” from Teaching the Fa at the Conference II)
Remembering Master's Fa helped me let go of fear, and I could calmly tell the truth to officers in the public security departments.
Police Officer Quits the CCP
In another phone call, a man claimed not to be a CCP member, then reversed himself after we talked for a while. He admitted to being a police officer, and that he had joined the CCP and its two affiliated organizations.
“Your work is either in a police station or in the security bureau,” I said, “whichever is your job, your life is your own. The CCP is doomed by heaven. So you must quit if you do not want to be implicated in the CCP's crimes against humanity.”
He said he was not interested in information about Falun Dafa, but admitted that he and his colleagues knew that Falun Dafa was good. However, they thought that some practitioners were superficial.
This spurred me on to elaborate about the goodness of the practice. He then agreed to withdraw from his CCP memberships, and in the end, thanked me for helping him get a clearer understanding of Dafa.
Master Uses Different Methods
Mandarin is my first spoken language, but it created a problem when I talked to people from Guangdong. They hung up when I spoke Mandarin. So I learned Cantonese. This helped me greatly!
Practitioners sometimes answered when I called, and we talked about different Dafa projects. Some had stopped practicing Dafa. I then realized that Master used my calls in the hopes of bringing them back to being practitioners.
Master has used many methods to help me with my phone calling project, such as giving me hints in dreams, or providing me with wisdom in my clarifying the facts to people. There are still areas where I have to do better, but I will strive forward resolutely on my cultivation path.
