(Minghui.org) During a long holiday in early May 2023, a new practitioner who just finished reading Zhuan Falun went to a tourist site in Inner Mongolia. She saw flyers printed with Master’s new articles all over the ground, with some having been stepped on by people. One person was busy picking up the flyers and said that he could sell them for some money.

I was very sad upon hearing about this. I hope to share with fellow practitioners that we should be cautious in distributing Master’s articles. We need to be mindful of whether our efforts to save people are effective. We cannot just do things based on our personal preferences. We also can’t just take for granted that whatever we set out to do must be absolutely correct. Otherwise, we may not only fail to save people, but also generate karma ourselves and push sentient beings to the opposite side.

After Master published the two new articles “How Humankind Came To Be” and “Why Save Sentient Beings” in January and April 2023, respectively, many practitioners realized that saving people is an urgent matter, and they wanted to do more. Some felt as if Fa-rectification was about to end immediately and they had to do something to catch up. In some regions, practitioners distributed Master’s new articles on a large scale. I truly hope that such practitioners can reconsider whether such an act is appropriate.

I feel the best way is to clarify the facts to people first and explain to them the main message of Master’s articles. If they are interested, we can share a copy of the articles with them, but we shouldn’t force them to accept them if they don’t want to read the material.

I wonder when mass arrests or harassment take place in some regions, whether it’s related to the mentality of local practitioners. Any human thoughts we have may invite interference upon ourselves. No matter what we do, whether it be talking to people face to face, or distributing materials, we should avoid the communist culture mentality of “doing things on a grand scale.” We should not be led by our human hearts to do irrational things, as we’ve had too many hard lessons in the past.

In whatever we do, we should be doing things rationally, steadily, quietly, and persistently, all of which would help us achieve better results. In some regions, many practitioners were arrested for distributing materials on a large scale. If we can do things more rationally, we can avoid many unnecessary losses and troubles. If we can maintain righteous and pure hearts, the evil will not dare to persecute us.

I suggest that we all go out and talk to people face to face. Everyone who can understand the facts after talking to us counts as a success story in our truth-clarification efforts. If we are held back by our fear, we are in fact wasting precious time. We should encourage each other and make the best use of the time remaining. We should not let the precious opportunities to save people slip away and create regret for ourselves.
