Putting Our Insights into Action
(Minghui.org) When the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) virus pandemic broke out, fellow practitioners said in their experience sharing articles that they called their relatives to tell them the facts about Falun Gong. I was inspired and wanted to call my brother and sister, who live far away in my hometown and I only visit every few years.
Although everyone in my parents' family withdrew from the CCP and its affiliated organizations, they didn't understand why I wanted to tell people about Falun Dafa and the persecution. A few years ago, I persuaded my second brother’s daughter-in-law to withdraw her membership in the CCP. Standing beside her, my second brother said, “Where is the disaster? I haven't seen anything such thng for many years.” Remembering this, I wanted to call and talk with them again.
I called my sister first. I briefly talked with her about the current situation caused by the pandemic. A few days later I wanted to call my second brother, but my cultivation status wasn't good and I put it off.
A few days ago, I said to my daughter, “I want to call your uncle and talk to him.” My daughter said, “You didn't call him when the city was closed. Now this situation... ” When I clarified the truth recently, I encountered several people who believed the CCP’s lies, thought the virus was under control, and didn’t want to listen to the reality of the situation. Knowing that my second brother is not an easygoing person, I again gave up the thought of calling him.
For several nights, I was not able to wake up and send righteous thoughts in the middle of the night. When the alarm rang, I slept through it. Something was wrong with me, and I realized that there must be something that I hadn't done well. I said to my daughter, “I still want to call my second brother. I didn't wake up in the middle of the night to send righteous thoughts because I didn't call your second uncle to give him the facts. I didn't do the right thing.” My daughter said, “Go ahead, make the call. I'll call the number for you.”
After he picked up, I greeted him and asked about the situation at home. Then I said, “The things I told you before were meant to help you survive this disaster. I hope you are safe. You see how serious it is in Wuhan now. Don’t look at how calm our region is. Anything can happen in the future...” I kept talking and he listened without saying a word.
I asked him, “Do you believe what I said? Do you understand?” He replied, “I believe what you said, I understand it.” We were both happy. Finally, he thanked me.
Later that night, I heard the alarm and woke up on time to send righteous thoughts. I thought that calling my brother must have been the right thing to do.
Master told us:“...Let each and every thingbe measured against the Fa.Only then, with that,is it actually cultivation.”(“Solid Cultivation,” Hong Yin)
When Dafa disciples enlighten to something, they must act upon it. Especially now, during the final stages of cultivation, there is no time for us to cultivate slowly. After studying Master’s new scripture “Stay Rational”, I really feel the urgency caused by time running out. Whether Dafa disciples are clarifying the truth, cultivating xinxing, or passing tests to eliminate attachments, we should hurry up and save people.
