A Sharing On My Experience in Clarifying the Truth
Using Advertisement Fliers to Clarify the Truth Effectively
I have become better and better at using advertisement fliers to clarify the truth when distributing truth-clarification materials.
I put the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party inside a tightly sealed plastic bag (to prevent damage), and place it inside a large advertising flier. Then, I fold and pack it nicely using a colored plastic bag. In this way, I can put it anywhere on the streets where I deem suitable. After a period of observation and practice, I found that the effect is very good. People who have been so poisoned by the evil party would not accept it easily if it was given to them face-to-face. However, they normally accept it if they receive it unknowingly. Most of the time, I place the package in bicycle baskets, as the book is comparably heavy. The recipients normally open it up to see what it is before putting it back into the basket and ride off. Of course, this requires large numbers of advertising fliers.
Once, a store was holding its anniversary sale and distributing advertising fliers. I was pushing my bicycle amongst the crowd, and it was not easy to get near the person distributing the fliers to get many copies. It was a regretful day for me, however the next morning, while walking on the street, I saw something moving in the grass. I ignored it at first but as I walked on, it rose out from the grass and I stepped nearer to have a look. It was a stack of at least fifty neatly packed advertising fliers that had not been given out. I felt a sudden burst of joy and further understood what Master taught us in "Teaching the Fa at the 2004 Western U.S. Fa Conference,"
"And all beings have come for the Fa--all beings in the Three Realms came for the Fa, were created for the Fa, and were formed for the Fa. That includes all the myriad things."
Putting Down Hindering Human Attachments
Once, I received a rubber stamp with truth-clarification words written on it. When I first received it my first thought was that the words were written too big. However, immediately I realized that this was not me and I had to deny it. After returning home, I used the stamp on a few small notes. Looking at it I did not feel solid in my mind, as notions of "these words are too big, too direct and people would not accept it," surfaced in my mind. I repelled the notions very strongly and suppressed them. I also sent righteous thoughts, but the effect was not very good. In the end, I thought that without a strong righteous mind and righteous thoughts, it's probably better to write the words by hand.
When I then used the hand-written notes to buy things from a store, the cashier simply refused to accept it and made me give them a new one. Only when they saw that I had no small change did they accept it. This has never happened before. In that instant when the cashier refused to accept the money, a thought surfaced in my heart and I shouted in my mind, "Master, your disciple has done wrong."
We are saving people and it does not matter whether the characters are large or small. What matters is its content. Through this incident, I further realized that I have to put down my hindering notions and human thoughts in order to save more sentient beings.
After studying Master's article, "In Fa-Rectification Your Thoughts Have To Be Righteous, Not Human," my xinxing improved and my righteous thoughts strengthened. All my currency bills printed with truth-clarification words were able to flow freely.
Finishing What Another Began
One time, while running an errand, I heard a lay Buddhist talking about the happiness, joy, sadness and hardships in life. After hearing it, I said, "To each his own path in life." This lay Buddhist turned around and said, "You sound like a Buddhist. Which practice do you cultivate in?" I replied, "Falun Gong." The lay Buddhist stared at me with big eyes and said reflexively, "Lower your voice."
I began clarifying the truth about many subjects, from the "April 25" appeal, the Tiananmen Self-immolation lie, to torture and the CCP's organ harvesting from living Falun Gong practitioners. The lay Buddhist held my hands the whole time, and while crying, said repeatedly, "This is too frightening, too inhumane! I finally believe it today. Before, I've heard you people (another practitioner) tell me about it, but there was not enough time and I was not familiar with that person so I did not believe fully what I was told. However, hearing what you're telling me today, I totally believe it now."
I most sincerely thank the practitioners before me who have laid the foundation for this lay Buddhist to know the truth. Fellow practitioners, let's join hands in doing the three things and become more diligent in order to save more sentient beings!
