Cooperating As a Dynamic Team to Clarify the Truth and Improve Together
Going Out to Clarify the Truth
Xiaomin, in her 70s, began to practice Falun Dafa after watching Master’s lecture videos. In the beginning, she could only listen to other practitioners read the main text of Dafa, Zhuan Falun, at group study sessions because she was illiterate. She eventually began to learn the words and can now read all of the Dafa books by herself. Shortly after she began practicing, all of her illnesses disappeared as well.
With the help of her daughter (who is also a practitioner), Xiaomin learned the importance of clarifying the truth, saving sentient beings and helping Master rectify the Fa. She would then go out to talk to people about the persecution at the markets and could pursuade more than ten people to withdraw from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) each time.
Although she can read Dafa books, Xiaomin still doesn’t know how to write. In order to write down the names of people who’ve quit the CCP's affiliated organizations, she would draw Chinese characters on her palms. After returning home, she read them to her daughter, who would then record the names.
At that time, I was afraid to talk to strangers and didn’t dare go out to clarify the truth. After learning of Xiaomin’s story, I wanted to go out with her to talk to people face-to-face about Dafa.
The next day, I met her by chance at another practitioner's home and told her of my thoughts. We met the following day, and Xiaomin talked to people while I sent forth righteous thoughts.
I later realized that sometimes Xiaomin didn’t thoroughly clarify the truth. I told her that we shouldn’t leave people with any misunderstanding about Dafa. If the time is tight, we can just have them understand that Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good, and ask them to withdraw from the CCP. We shouldn’t think that by only saying “Doing the three withdrawals will secure a good future” is good enough.
Xiaomin always smiles and is friendly when she talks to people. She once clarified the truth to a young man. As soon as he heard Falun Gong, he tried to avoid her. Xiaomin didn’t let that affect her, however, and kept smiling and continued to talk to him calmly while I sent forth righteous thoughts. The young man finally smiled and said, “Thank you, I have already quit the Communist Youth League.”
I felt Xiaomin’s compassion. It helped me further understand what Master said,
My cooperation with Xiaomin has been harmonious like that of a family. While she talked, I sent forth righteous thoughts. When people wanted to quit the Party but didn’t want to use their names, I would quickly offer a nickname they could use. When someone didn't understand what Xiaomin said, I would help to explain the facts in more detail while Xiaomin sent righteous thoughts.
Another time, I saw two young women riding their motorcycles. Xioamin smiled and went over to talk to them. The women agreed to quit the Communist Youth League and Young Pioneers and thanked us. We replied, “You can thank our Master.” They said, “Thank you, Master!”
Remembering to Cultivate Ourselves
In the process of clarifying the truth and saving sentient beings, I have eliminated many attachments, such as the attachment to saving face, fear of physical tribulations, wanting peace of mind, and competitiveness. When my xinxing improved, my body underwent changes, and symptoms of illness karma have gradually disappeared.
Xiaomin also had symptoms of sickness karma before she went out to clarify the truth. Her husband said that she had stomach cancer, but Xiaomin disagreed and insisted on studying the Fa, doing the exercises, and going out to tell people the facts about the persecution every day.
She often threw up bloody coagulated liquid after she finished doing the Dafa exercises in the morning and sending forth righteous thoughts. She would always say with gratitude, “Thank you, Master, for purifying my body.” Regardless of the weather conditions, Xioamin went out to clarify the truth, and her health improved with each passing day.
