(Minghui.org) I have practiced Falun Gong for more than 20 years. All the tribulations I’ve experienced have helped me improve. The time that Master extends is for us to improve ourselves in practicing and awaken more people. I cherish the precious time and practice diligently.

Changing My Mindset about Being Provoked

When I first joined the global platform RTC to call China to clarify the truth, a practitioner helped me install the software. Other practitioners offered training and shared their experiences in talking to people on the platform. A practitioner gave me a list of phone numbers to call.

One night, I logged onto the platform to make phone calls with another practitioner, when my daughter and her husband (who is a practitioner) came over. When they overheard me making the calls, they said in unison that I needed to write my own script and make calls on my own. They also said I needed to practice more.

My son-in-law said, “If you can’t clarify the truth well, you might as well not make the calls. Since you do not know how to clarify the truth and you cannot express your points well, will your efforts be effective?”

Even though I did not say anything I felt indignant. Now when I recall this, my son-in-law was actually helping me improve my xinxing! This also showed whether I sincerely wished to save sentient beings.

Master said,

“Forbearance is the key to improving one’s xinxing. To endure with anger, grievance, or tears is the forbearance of an everyday person who is attached to his concerns. To endure completely without anger or grievance is the forbearance of a cultivator.” (“What is Forbearance (Ren)?,” Essentials for Further Advancement)

I then just had the thought to save people. There was nothing else on my mind. I only wanted to awaken people's consciences. Initially, I did not know how to clarify the truth, so I used another practitioner’s script. I later wrote my own scripts. I could also speak to people sincerely and honestly without any scripts.

I just used my personal experience to expose the CCP’s bad deeds. When they understood the truth, people quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations. Despite my son-in-law's criticism, I did not give up making phone calls.

Things went on like this, and my son-in-law was very concerned about the effectiveness of my efforts. He asked how many phone calls I made and how many people I helped quit the CCP.

Before I could reply, he said again, “If you are not effective, then do not make the calls!” I told him, “I am a Dafa practitioner. Whatever I decide to do, nobody can change my mind. I only want to follow the path that Master has arranged for me. I will persist and my efforts will be effective.”

I wondered why my son-in-law kept saying that to me? There must be attachments I needed to eliminate. When I looked inward, I saw that I had a competitive mentality and resentment and that I was not willing to accept criticism.

My son-in-law wanted me to make effective phone calls that could really save people. He was being responsible to sentient beings and helping me improve my cultivation state so that more people could be saved. When I identified my attachments and decided to eliminate them, my son-in-law's attitude immediately changed.

Eliminating the Attachment to Relying on Others

Before I joined the RTC platform, whenever there were issues related to my computer, I would ask my practitioner daughter to help me because I did not want to learn how to operate computers. Through reading the Fa, I realized that I had the attachment of relying on others and I should get rid of it.

I started learning how to copy and paste until I was able to send the feedback myself. This process made me understand that cultivation is really about making changes voluntarily and one should be like a cultivator in all aspects.

Training on the RTC Platform

When I first started making phone calls, I had no experience. I did not know how to effectively communicate with people. The way I expressed myself in Chinese was not fluent, so my calls were not very effective. I thought how good it would be to have some training.

Later, a practitioner told me that the RTC had a big group training, so I joined it. I never missed a meeting. The trainer suggested that I read more, especially the truth-clarifying content. If I could speak fluently, people would not hang up as quickly.

I gained a lot from that training so I really cherished it. When we practiced reading the scripts, we divided into pairs and read our scripts to each other. I was grouped with a New Zealand practitioner and we tested each other.

What left the deepest impression on me was that our phone call simulations helped me to be able to make phone calls very quickly. During the phone calls, people listened for a much longer period of time. When I finished making a phone call I was not satisfied, however, as I felt that I was still so far away from the standards of the other practitioners.

Master said,

“Study the Fa and gain the Fa,Focus on how you study and cultivate,Let each and every thing be measured against the Fa.Only then, with that, is it actually cultivation.”(“Solid Cultivation,” Hong Yin)

I told myself that I had to study the Fa more frequently and with a more serious attitude. Only by cultivating myself well could I save more people.

After making phone calls for six months, one day, the trainer asked if I could take the duty every Saturday morning Beijing time.

I was placed in charge of the day group’s training in truth-clarifying content. Before we met, I read the truth-clarifying content at least three times. I knew that only when I made more effort could I train others well.

The training coordinator for our group helped by sending out the materials to the other practitioners. We cooperated very well. During the process, I discovered that I still had the tendency to rely on others.

One day, many practitioners from different countries joined the platform. I thought to myself, “Can I conduct the training well?” When I saw that our practitioner -n-charge was also in the room, my heart calmed down. If she was not there, I would always feel that something is missing.

Sometimes she had to help other practitioners repair their computers and I was a little unhappy. I later realized that we all need to do our part to support and maintain the group as a whole. Everyone is doing his part to save people.

The training helped me improve in my cultivation. I realized that people were more likely to listen to the entire script if sensitive phrases were not included. Not only would they not hang up so easily, there was also a higher success rate in persuading them to quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations.

If the person is not willing to quit the CCP after I explain that they’d vowed to give their lives for the Party, I tell them the truth behind the staged Tiananmen Square self-immolation and about the CCP’s state-sanctioned forced organ harvesting from Falun Dafa practitioners.

Some practitioners’ phone calls were hung up on because, in their eagerness, they spoke too fast. When they called back again and were more calm, the person usually agreed to quit the CCP. The main objective of our training is to more effectively help people understand the truth about Dafa and save them. This platform is a benevolent field of energy. After the training, our rate of helping people quit the CCP is usually quite high. We cooperated well.

My Wish to Save People Grows Stronger

When I first made phone calls, I did not interact much with the people I phoned due to the CCP elements I’d been indoctrinated with, such as fear, wanting to be in charge, and not caring about others’ feelings. The trainer practitioner suggested that I read the Nine Commentaries and Disintegrate the CCP Culture again.

One person got angry when I did not tell him where I was calling from. When I called him the second time, he immediately asked, “Where are you from?” I told him that the number displayed on his phone might be America today and Holland tomorrow and I also told him about quitting the CCP and its affiliated organizations before he hung up.

Master said,

“I've told you before that Shan isn't something pretended, nor is it a state that's just maintained on the surface. Shan truly comes from within and can only be attained and embodied through cultivation. When you're before sentient beings, as soon as words come out of your mouth and as soon as your thoughts emerge, they are able to disintegrate bad elements and the bad things that poison the world's people and that exist in people's minds. And then people will come to understand, and you'll be able to save them.” (Teaching the Fa at the 2004 Western U.S. Fa Conference)

When I phoned a person in northeast China, I spoke in my native dialect to converse with him and was able to narrow the gap between us so he would feel closer. When I truly considered the people I phoned, my rate of successfully persuading them to quit the CCP became very high.

When some people wanted money, I cited the example of a housewife in Hebei Province who’d been handicapped for 16 years. She recovered her ability to walk after cultivating Falun Dafa. Her health was restored without spending a single cent. “Which is more important, your money or your life? Having money does not mean that your life will be saved.” People understood the logic and quit the CCP.

When Master sees that we have the heart to save people, he will lead people to us. I know I must cultivate myself well and be more serious about clarifying the truth.

One practitioner invited me to join the team that makes phone calls to certain groups. I thought that this invitation was not accidental, so I accepted it. When we were making calls about focused cases in Sichuan, I went online to see if there were any attractions in Sichun and saw that the Leshan Giant Buddha statue was there.

I told one of the people that answered my call, “The Leshan Giant Buddha is in Sichuan. Have you been there? Tears are falling down the Buddha’s face to warn us, because people are doing so many bad things and humankind is morally corrupt—which is why there are so many disasters.” Then I talked about quitting the CCP and its affiliated organizations.

One day I phoned a teacher surnamed Kong. He hung up the first time, but I called him again and said, “Teacher Kong, good day to you! Since your surname is Kong, you must be from Confucius’s family! You know, China’s culture is passed on to us by the Heavens. We believe in divine beings.”

I related several stories from The Three Character Classic, an ancient book that guided Chinese people to be good and helped them improve their moral values.

I went on to talk about education in China and asked him to remember, “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” He finally agreed to quit the CCP.


I understood that there must be a two-way interaction when we make phone calls. We should not be reading scripts. We must also do the three things well. As we clarify the truth, no matter what situation we encounter, we should not let our minds wander and we should also not have any negative thoughts.

In our hearts, we should only think about saving people. In that way, we will be able to form one body and have great abilities to save people with our righteous thoughts.

Thank you, Master, for giving me such a wonderful opportunity! I will definitely treasure it!
