(Minghui.org) In this last stage of the Fa-rectification, I am very anxious because I don’t have enough compassion when I clarify the truth about Dafa. I admire those practitioners who cultivate well, are compassionate, and speak with wisdom. I know how important my mission to assist Master Li (Dafa’s founder) in Fa-rectification is, so I will speed my pace in assisting Master in awakening people.
There is a fellow practitioner who is from my mother’s village. I consider her a sister and we usually study the Fa and practice exercises together since she lives near me. One day, she suggested that we visit our hometown to clarify the truth, as many villages have been locked down and some villagers still haven’t heard the truth about Dafa. On the surface, I agreed, but in my heart, I was reluctant.
I felt my mind was not right. So, I looked inward to find the attachments that prevented me from putting my heart into clarifying the truth and saving people.
Before I got married, I was envied for being a tractor driver to which I also felt superior. At that time, I was young and pretty and everyone thought I was a smart and capable girl. Being the only girl in my family, I was spoiled. I was used to hearing compliments and couldn’t take any criticism.
After I married, people didn't envy me anymore. My husband is lazy. He doesn't have a decent job, so, I am the primary breadwinner. My son is also inferior to others his age. He is short, has no degree and no job, and, at the age of 30, he is still not married. While others have cars, houses, and children, he has very little. I feel embarrassed when I go back to my parents’ hometown. Many human attachments are reflected when I visit my parents’ community, such as the competitive mentality, showing off, jealousy, vanity, inferiority complex, self-esteem, and so on.
Eliminate the Attachments of Inferiority, Jealousy, and Vanity
I have to walk past my classmate from primary school when I visit my parents as she sells biscuits at the only entrance to the village. Once my son and I took the bus to my parents’ home. After getting off the bus, we had to pass by my classmate’s booth. I quickly greeted her and hurried home to avoid talking to her, as I was afraid of being asked about my family situation, such as whether my son was married and had a child or not.
Immediately after the short interaction with my former classmate, my son said that I was not polite because I tried to avoid talking to her. Usually, he doesn't pay attention to such details, but this time he kept saying how rude I was. I suddenly realized that Master was using his mouth to give me a hint and let me detect the attachments of vanity, jealousy, an inferiority complex, and selfishness. As soon as I realized this, I immediately eliminated these human attachments.
A few months ago, two of my closest girlfriends called me and suggested we get together as we haven’t seen each other for a long time. I refused with the excuse that I have no time. Actually, it’s not that I didn’t have the time, but I was afraid of being looked down upon. But, when I thought about it, I knew it was my attachments and human notions.
I now have Master and I am a Dafa practitioner in the Fa-rectification period. I realized I should be happy as I am a Dafa cultivator who is envied by divine beings. I should get rid of these human notions. I finally got together with my girlfriends on August 29, 2021. We were all very happy to see each other. Since I changed my notions, I felt happy for them when they talked about their cute and smart grandsons, capable son, filial daughter-in-law, and rich family.
Once I met a cousin whom I haven’t seen for over 40 years. When I said hello to him, he didn’t seem to remember me. I suddenly realized that I looked much older and less attractive. Then, I immediately realized that it was not my thought, but my attachment to vanity, and inferiority complex that was thinking this way. I should eliminate these false notions that interfered with clarifying the truth. Then, he remembered me. I gave him a USB with information about Dafa and the persecution and a pendant with “Falun Dafa is good.” He gladly accepted. I then said to him, “The pendant can dispel evil and avoid epidemics, and it is the life-saving magic weapon that Dafa's Master gives to all living beings. Please quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its youth organizations.”
He said, “I already quit the Youth League long ago.” I then told him that when he joined the league and swore with his fists, he devoted his whole life to the CCP and he would be under its control. Now, it is time to quit it to ensure his safety and peace. He gladly agreed to quit the CCP.
Clarity the Truth to My Mother and Eliminate Her Fear
Once after lunch at my mother’s home, I told my mother that my sister and I would walk around the village to clarify the truth. My mother was worried and unhappy.
My mother couldn’t read so she could only listen to the audio recording of Master’s lectures. Now, she was not very clear about the Fa principles.
She was under great psychological pressure by the evil party’s brutal persecution of Dafa practitioners and the evil propaganda of lies. Therefore, when villagers who didn't understand the truth said something bad about Dafa, she was afraid of clarifying the truth face to face and she didn't want us to do so either as she was afraid of us being persecuted.
In order to ease my mother’s worries and her fear of persecution, I thought I should clarify the truth to her first.
“You know Dafa is good,” I said, so please try to listen to Master’s lectures every day. Master helped you quit smoking, which you had been trying to quit for many years before you finished listening to Master’s lectures. You have benefited from Dafa but you dare not validate the Fa. Aren’t you selfish? Are you a good person? Master asked us to be a good person and to clarify the truth and save sentient beings. We should listen to Master. Those villagers who said bad words about Dafa do not understand the truth and they are deceived by the CCP’s lies. Now so many natural and man-made disasters are wiping out people. Master asked us to save people. Dafa practitioners are the only hope for sentient beings to be saved.
My mother finally understood why we should clarify the truth and gradually got rid of her fear. She is no longer worried and afraid when we clarify the truth.
