Letting Go of Fear and Saving People
(Minghui.org) The practitioners in our area started to clarify the truth to people using mobile phones several years ago. It was very effective, so I joined the team. I could call anyone in China and talk to them any time before their bedtime.
Laying a Foundation
I was with practitioners Ying and Lili the first time I made such a call. When Ying was talking to people, she was compassionate, her energy field was very righteous, and I was enveloped by it. Then she had me call several people, and two of them agreed to withdraw from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its youth organizations. It went well. I was still within Ying’s compassionate field after I finished the calls. It was a beautiful experience.
The next day when I looked back, I was amazed. How could I possibly have done that? I had never talked to people like that before—I didn’t know how. But because I didn’t have any human attachments like fear or nervousness and was only thinking of saving them, I was successful. Thanks to Master’s strengthening and the practitioner’s good energy field, I laid a good foundation for my future truth-clarification efforts.
We three worked together. We set a time each day to make calls. At the start I read from a manuscript. Some who answered agreed to withdraw from the CCP. Of course, there were those who cursed us.
Different Methods Lead to Different Results
We set a goal for ourselves to have 10 people withdraw from the CCP each day. Ying and I managed to do that most of the time, but not Lili. But when I listened to her, I discovered that she always talked to people in great detail. She would dial the number again and again if the person hung up the first time. A man withdrew from the CCP after she rang him three times, and he thanked her. Lili was knowledgeable and had great patience.
“ "The great Fa is boundless." Cultivating it depends entirely on your heart. As to how high your cultivation level can reach, it all depends on your endurance and your ability to bear hardships.” (Lecture Two, Zhuan Falun)
Her patience and persistence demonstrated her compassion.
Encouraged by her approach, I called the people again if they didn’t listen the first time and gave them another opportunity to be saved. Then, I had more righteous thoughts in my mind and hoped that not just one but several people would listen to my call.
Sure enough, for a period of time almost every day groups of people agreed to quit the CCP. They were couples, bosses on behalf of their employees, and contractors. One boss helped his eight employees withdraw from the CCP. I gave every one of them an alias, and the boss repeated back the alias without a mistake. He remembered all the names.
Finding Encouragement in a Dream
In a dream one night, I opened a clinic on a high mountain. Two practitioners and a Daoist were having tea and playing Chinese chess outside my clinic. A couple accompanying a sick man appeared. I asked them how they managed to make it up the mountain.
The Daoist and the two practitioners asked me to see the patient. I asked the man what his symptoms were, and he opened his clothes. To my surprise, his body was coated with a steel-like substance. The couple said that he couldn’t be cured and was waiting for death. I told him to recite “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” He repeated it again and again. Gradually his skin returned to normal.
I told my dream to Ying and Lili the next day. We were greatly encouraged by the story because we told people to remember “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” on every call.
When we grew more confident about making calls, we started to call people in the legal departments. Initially, one practitioner spoke while the other two sent righteous thoughts. After a time, each of us was able to make phone calls individually.
One day I called a policeman. He hung up on me twice. I was not moved and called him a third time. I said that, even if he had the wealth of the whole world, he could not buy his life. He was shocked and changed his attitude after he realized the meaning of my words. He agreed to quit the CCP. Tears covered my face. This was the compassion of Master and Dafa!
Calming Down and Treating People with Compassion
One day when we made calls, no one agreed to withdraw from the CCP. I talked to a young man for 40 minutes but he still didn’t agree to quit. I cried as I spoke to him, and Ying and Lili cried with me. He never did quit the CCP. I cried because I didn’t cultivate myself well enough, so I didn’t have the power to influence him. I tried to grab him as he was falling into the abyss. Ying and Lili tried to help him, but he himself didn’t accept the help.
During the process of making phone calls, my compassion grew. Initially I was nervous and my heart would pound. Gradually, I became calm and treated people as sentient beings to be saved. I was elevating myself.
Ying was introverted, but she said that she felt happiest when she told people to remember “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” She started to tell people about Falun Dafa at her stall in a market when the persecution just started. She was afraid and even couldn’t talk properly. But she was determined to tell people the truth to save them. She listened to Master and did what Master told her to do.
Every practitioner who steps out to tell people the facts about Falun Dafa goes through the process of letting go of fear. They become more and more mature during the process and their righteous thoughts become more and more powerful.
I encourage those practitioners who haven’t stepped forward to let go of their fear. Actually, Master does everything for us.
