Breaking Through This Blockage

July 16, 2006 |   By a Falun Dafa practitioner in the United States

(Clearwisdom.net) Recently, several practitioners have shared understandings about the vile Chinese Communist Party’s harvesting of organs from living Falun Dafa practitioners. We have observed that practitioners, most notably in the United States, have not taken action to expose these crimes and clarify the truth, or rather, they are acting slowly.

In fact, most practitioners are simply thinking about this event. The exposure of the concentration camps was originally to help spread the Nine Commentaries and get people to withdraw from the CCP, as well as to completely disintegrate the CCP. Opportunities to wake up the government and the people, have them see the facts, and expose to the world the evilness of this persecution are rare. Simply because the Fa-rectification process has reached such an extent, the darkest corners are exposed under sunlight, and we Falun Dafa practitioners have to complete our tasks quickly in order to save beings.

In light of the current situation, it is quite a severe problem that we are watching, waiting, and even feeling numb. Maybe some practitioners are expecting the Falun Dafa Association or Assistance Centers to coordinate these actions, or maybe we are too busy with other projects to think or act. Some may think that we have done so much investigating and found so much evidence, that it is up to ordinary people to come to their senses. I have found many excuses to not write this article, and felt pressure to wait for others to share first.

Viewed from the surface dimension, we see that the remaining evil and the old forces are trying with all their might to resist. They absolutely do not wish for people to awaken. They are using many incidents and approaches to block people from seeing the truth. At the same time, I came to the understanding that we Falun Dafa practitioners are even more of a target for the evil to attack and block. If our righteous thoughts are not strong enough, we will be controlled by them, or even feel helpless in the face of people's not waking up when genocide is happening every day.

I read a paragraph Master taught about the purpose and importance of clarifying the truth:

"While you’re clarifying here, layers upon layers of your bodies that have completed cultivation are also clarifying at cosmic bodies of different levels... Clarifying the facts is most powerful, and it’s an act of grand compassion since this persecution is completely based on lies and deception." (Teaching and Explaining the Fa at the Metropolitan New York Fa Conference)

I was suddenly shaken. Yes, we are divine beings, so how can we be helpless and numb! It may look like what we do on the surface are all small matters, but we are doing these things with our divine side in all realms. These actions are all powerful despite how small they appear in this realm. If our mentality as practitioners reaches a higher level, the whole human race will move along with us. In order to wake up and save more people, we must first break through ourselves and the numbness that the old forces have put upon us.

During one activity supporting mainland China practitioners several years ago, overseas practitioners were standing in the cold wind to collect signatures on petitions. Not many people were passing by. I thought that if we stood in the cold for several hours we still might not get many signatures. However, that time government officials and members of Congress reacted very quickly. I believe fellow practitioners were not surprised, because we moved sentient beings when our true thoughts were strong, whether or not we collected many signatures or received much support on the surface.

On the other hand, I remember three years ago, an activity to rescue an overseas fellow practitioner detained by the CCP. One practitioner shared a view of another dimension, and it was published on the Minghui website. The article said that it was like two front lines in a battle: one side was the old forces, and the other side was the Falun Dafa practitioners (it appeared as higher beings in a more microscopic level). The old forces shouted, "You want to save people, but you cannot. Count for yourselves how many of you truly want to save others."

These phenomena have to make us search deeply, and we cannot let the dark minions of the old forces exploit our gaps. Maybe some of us are not on a VIP team, or are not directly involved in more relevant projects, but we are one body clarifying the truth. Have we placed this matter in an important position in our work on projects? Have we been supporting this matter with our righteous thoughts? If we have some time, have we been passing out fliers and making phone calls? If our true thoughts merged on this matter, it would be pushed forward quickly, and we would catch up with the Fa-rectification process.

It has been four months since the concentration camps were exposed, but our actions show that we have not reacted appropriately. In recent Fa-conferences, I was expecting Master to speak on this matter, even on specific methods. I know my mind was not right, and I realized after each Fa-conference that we have to walk our own path, and not rely on Master for everything.

In the past four months, our detained fellow practitioners have been suffering, and sentient beings have approached destruction. We cannot imagine how much our Benevolent Master has endured for us and for all sentient beings in these four months. We must break through these blockages, clarify the truth, and act quickly.

My observation can be very narrow due to limited levels of understanding. I am eager to receive feedback and sharing from fellow practitioners. Let us create a greater environment to exchange insights, and truly reflect and treat this matter correctly.
