Don’t Leave Regrets on the Cultivation Path
(Minghui.org) I retired about three years ago. I began to think about all the people I knew who I still hadn't clarified the truth to about Falun Dafa and the persecution. I felt that if I didn't talk to them, I would deeply regret it, so I thought about how to contact them.
For those who live far away, I sent letters or called them to tell them about Falun Dafa and the persecution. I offered to help them renounce their memberships in the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its youth organizations.
I traveled by car to those who lived closer. I went to the home of a classmate I hadn't seen for more than 30 years and lived hundreds of miles away. I helped her family of four quit the CCP. After I told them about Falun Dafa and the persecution, her family asked to learn the Falun Dafa exercises. I left her an exercise instruction VCD and taught them the basic exercise movements.
I also got in touch with my cousin who I hadn't talked to for 48 years. He was only thirteen years old when we last saw each other. When I found him, he was very excited. I also clarified the truth to my sister-in-law and helped her family of three quit the Party. I gave each of them a keepsake with messages about Dafa and brought them informational materials. I told them that many people feel they've been blessed by remembering and saying, “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” and “Falun Dafa is good” often. I asked them to carefully read the materials, and they happily agreed.
I took advantage of family occasions such as weddings and holidays like Chinese New Year to clarify the truth to all my relatives. I offered them a chance to quit the CCP and its youth organizations. I also gave every household a desk calendar with Falun Dafa information, a Falun Dafa keepsake, car hanger, etc., so that they could really understand the truth. Most of them had positive experiences afterwards.
As for those who live close to me, I contacted them by phone. I brought gifts to their homes, clarified the truth and offered to help them quit the CCP. Most of them agreed to quit the Party, but some did not do so immediately. After I talked to them a few times, they finally did. I talked to one high school classmate over the course of three years before she quit. She's now begun to do the exercises and study the Fa. Several people saw her positive changes and began reading the Dafa books with her as a result.
It's really hard for people to begin practicing Dafa. I introduced my colleague’s wife to Dafa and went to her home eight times to show her the exercises. She learned to do the exercises and also read Zhuan Falun five or six times. When I went back after three months, she had begun practicing qigong.
Through my experiences, I realized that it's really hard for a person to begin practicing Falun Dafa now. I felt I should still try to help others. Through my visiting people’s homes to clarify the truth and persuading them to quit the Party, more than twelve people have truly begun practicing.
Fa-rectification is nearing the end, and there is no reason for us to miss anyone who has a predestined relationship with us. I feel each practitioner should seriously reflect and think: who else that is predestined with us in this life but still is not aware of the facts–hurry and find them. We should try every means to save them and not leave any regrets on our cultivation path!
