Our Starting Point Must Be Compassion
(Minghui.org) When I make phone calls to China to tell people that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is persecuting Falun Gong practitioners, some people refuse to listen, and hang up. I often became discouraged and thought that it was too difficult to talk to such people.
I looked inward but didn't find any attachments. One day, I suddenly realized that I needed to have a compassionate heart in order to truly move people.
I calmed down, pushed out all fear and random thoughts, and then called the first number on the list. I continued making phone calls for the next two hours. I kept the thought of only wishing to save them at the front of my mind. Four people quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations. This was the first time I had been able to help people quit the CCP so quickly.
From this experience I understood that it isn’t that people don't want to listen to what we have to say. They didn’t listen because I was not focused on saving them. My thoughts were not compassionate and my dimensional field was not pure. I realized that our thoughts must be focused and pure, otherwise we may not be able to save people.
“When people who have bad thoughts think about wrong things, under the strong effect of your field they might change their thinking, they might stop having bad thoughts for the time being. Maybe someone wants to badmouth somebody, but out of the blue he changes his mind and doesn’t want to talk badly about him anymore. Only the energy field from cultivating a true teaching can have this effect.” (Zhuan Falun)
Only by cultivating ourselves well and keeping righteous thoughts and a compassionate heart can we truly save people.
