Looking Inward while Phoning People in Beijing as the Pandemic Intensifies
(Minghui.org) The CCP Virus (Chinese Communist Party coronavirus) has been spreading in Beijing recently. We began making phone calls to people in legal departments in Beijing to explain the facts about Falun Dafa and the persecution, and save them by advising them to distance themselves from the CCP. I’d like to share my experiences with you.
I began having a lot of interference when I phoned China. The technical support practitioner was not able to solve the problem, and the equipment I used to make phone calls couldn’t be fixed. He installed another tool for me that was easier to use. But when I made phone calls using the new equipment, the receiver couldn’t hear me clearly.
Other practitioners said that fewer people than usual were answering their calls. I didn’t pay much attention to this until recently. When I said that I should maintain righteous thoughts when I made phone calls, my heart didn’t feel it. What was wrong?
When I studied the Fa that morning, one word came to mind: notions. Yes, my own notions were hindering me. I even had preferences regarding the calling tools I liked to use.
This time, I focused when I read the Fa. I sent righteous thoughts and cleared away my own bad thoughts and notions as well as any negative factors in other dimensions that interfered with and prevented people from being saved. I started to dial the numbers. Once I let go of my notions, Master helped me.
I made nine phone calls and eight people answered their phones and listened for over ten minutes. I clarified the truth to them and gave them the phone number of the World Organization to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong and also told them about the software that could allow them to break through the Internet blockade in China.
I realized that only when I put my heart into doing something, was I able to let go of my human heart and notions. Master would arrange the best for me.
One gentleman asked me where I came from. When he learned that I was calling from Sydney, he said that he had just gotten back from Australia. I told him that the Australian government had done a good job in controlling the CCP virus spread because they initiated an investigation into the origin of the CCP virus. Victoria state didn’t do well because it signed an agreement to join the CCP’s “One Belt and One Road” program. I told him that a second wave of the virus was spreading in Beijing, and I asked him to remember “Falun Dafa is good” and “Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance is good,” and withdraw from the CCP. He thanked me and hung up.
I realized that people want to hear to the truth but are still afraid of the CCP. I made another call and told the person how Falun Dafa is practiced around the world. He told me that his phone might be monitored, so I asked him not to talk and just listen. I clarified the truth to him and asked him to not get involved in persecuting Falun Dafa. He listened for quite a while.
One early morning, a practitioner who was staying in our house slammed the door when she left. My husband is very sensitive to noise as he is not in good health. He immediately yelled. I asked him to keep his voice down because he would disturb our neighbors as it was 4 a.m. He shouted even louder and started to curse at me. He said that he would not let me make phone calls to China if I didn’t tell the practitioner to watch her behavior.
I realized that I had an omission. I stopped talking and started sending righteous thoughts to clear out whatever was interfering with us. When I calmed down, my husband stopped cursing.
Regarding the energy field around Dafa practitioners, Master said:
“So what can this field do? As you all know, our practitioners of this righteous way have this feeling: Because it comes from cultivation of a righteous way, it is benevolent and assimilated to Zhen-Shan-Ren, the characteristic of the universe. Therefore, all of our practitioners can feel it while sitting here in this field, and their minds are free of bad thoughts. In addition, while sitting here many practitioners do not even think of smoking. They feel an atmosphere of serenity and peace, which is very comfortable. This is the energy carried by a practitioner of a righteous way, and that is what it does within the scope of this field.” (Lecture Three, Zhuan Falun)
“When an evil-minded person is thinking of something bad, this person might change his mind due to the powerful effect of your field; he might then no longer want to commit the wrongdoing. Perhaps a person wants to swear at someone. Suddenly, he may change his mind and will not want to swear. Only the energy field from cultivation practice in a righteous way can produce this effect. Therefore, in the past there was this saying in Buddhism: "The Buddha-light illuminates everywhere and rectifies all abnormalities." This is what it means.” (Lecture Three, Zhuan Falun)
I was shaken when I read the above Fa. I realized that I was far behind the requirements of the Fa. I should look within and cultivate myself well so as to reach the standard.
During the process of making phone calls, I realized that Master arranges the best for us. As long as we cultivate ourselves from the bottom of our heart, we will improve.
