Clarifying the Truth to My Colleagues During the Pandemic
(Minghui.org) Studying the Fa, sending forth righteous thoughts and clarifying the truth to people are the three things that a Dafa disciple of the Fa-rectification period must do. I fell short in clarifying the truth to people. Because of fear and my attachments to qing [sentimentality], I didn’t clarify the truth to my colleagues face to face.
I work in a state-run organization in Beijing. It is heavily influenced and controlled by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). Most of my colleagues didn’t know that I practiced Falun Dafa. My attachment prevented me from clarifying the truth to them.
My colleagues were not aware of the danger they were in given the pandemic. I could no longer wait. I had to start telling them the facts.
As a Dafa disciple, if I still could not let go of fear and attachment to sentimentality during this pressing time, how long will I wait? When would I tell them the facts? Dafa disciples are the only hope for people to be saved. What if the big weeding out comes next?
I started to clarify the truth to my colleagues around me after I went back to work in mid-February. I started with the pandemic, and told them the basic facts about Falun Dafa. I clarified the truth to them according to their level of acceptance and from their perspectives. I tried to do it in a rational way, using wisdom and compassion, and achieved good results.
I told them that the Tiananmen Square self immolation incident was staged, that the pandemic was caused because of the CCP’s persecution of Falun Dafa, and that they would keep themselves safe during the pandemic if they recited “Falun Dafa is good” and “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.”
I also told them that the CCP covered up the virus, which resulted in the pandemic, and what the CCP had been doing to people. I introduced the booklet the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party to them. Most of my colleagues accepted what I said, and some withdrew from the CCP and its youth organizations.
This is a good time to clarify the truth to people. It was not as difficult as I thought. During the process I also cultivated myself, and tried to get rid of my fear and attachments.
I will hurry up to do the three things well, clarify the truth to people more, and fulfill my mission of a Dafa disciple.
