Some Thoughts on Clarifying the Truth and the Internet Blockade
(Clearwisdom.net) A practitioner asked me, "Why do you insist on clarifying the truth?" From my understandings gained through Fa study and my contact with Internet friends, I am deeply moved, I dare not slack off or pursue comfort and leisure, and I deeply cherish this opportunity. I would like to share a recent experience.Understanding the responsibility and the mission I bear
I met a friend that I knew through the Internet. After he received the e-door software which helps to break through the Internet blockade and read the truth clarification material, he told me, "I read the Minghui/Clearwisdom website on a regular basis. I've dreamed that I was going through big tribulations. At the most urgent time, I would shout: 'Falun Dafa is good!' I had this dream many times this year. One night I dreamed that many people lay dead, a great number. I told those who were still alive to shout, 'Dafa is good!' Does this mean that Master tried to give me a hint and wants me to cultivate?"
I asked him if he had the "Zhuan Falun" e-book, and then said, "The dream may be trying to tell you to help your family and friends announce their withdrawals from the CCP and to know that Dafa is good." He replied, " Oh, I am going to a class reunion soon. I will let them know this."
When I first read Master's "Touring North America To Teach the Fa," I felt a sense of great sorrow. Master said:
"Your cultivation determines whether those gigantic groups of beings are good or bad, and whether they can be kept or not!"
"Then perhaps many beings won't be saved because you didn't cultivate well--It's because you haven't cultivated well that they can't become good."
If due to my pursuit of leisure and comfort, those gigantic groups of beings will be eliminated, how can I slack off?Sentient beings are waiting for the opportunity to meet Dafa practitioners
I met many Internet friends recently who all wanted to learn Falun Gong.
"What should I do in order to learn Falun Gong?"
"Why didn't you tell me? It was a good thing that I read the truth clarification material. I am so surprised that I found it. It is just as you said. I am the lucky one."
"Who do we contact? When will you teach me? I want to learn now!"
"I want to learn Falun Gong. Please send me the information."
"Where can I buy Falun Gong books, please?"
"I like the web page you sent me. I am so sad for fellow citizens who were persecuted. I am so sorry that I am in the same environment. Thank you so much for letting me at least know the truth! I am so sick of the media that misleads people, and those who do not know the truth yet talk irresponsibly."
After a Christian read the truth clarification materials he said, "Falun Dafa is good! I will let the family church committee know!"
I met a middle-aged Internet friend who asked me to send him Falun Dafa materials. I sent him the Zhuan Falun electronic book. Later I learned that he is blind. He lost his vision at age three. He told me, "I was very depressed until I received Zhuan Falun, and I believe what the book says is all true. I am deeply moved. Many things the book says I happen to agree with completely! I don't know why I want to read this book, but one thing is clear, I want to purify my heart! I do not want anything right now, I just want to read this book, again and again."
He overcame great difficulties, and he was firm and steadfast in studying the Fa and learning the exercises. Then he began to read the book through the computer reading program. The machine just pronounces each individual word. It is very hard sometimes and at times does not even sound like a sentence. But he quickly finished reading the book the second time. He wanted to listen to Master's lectures next. He works as a masseuse until late at night but keeps on studying the Fa. After he finished reading Zhuan Falun for the first time he told me,"I cannot find the Falun Gong that the media portrayed. I can only see a book that guides people to abide by "Truth, Compassion, Forbearance." If each and everyone abides by the book, we would to live in an auspicious world."
I strongly feel that the majority of the Chinese people are waiting for the opportunity to meet Dafa practitioners. Once they meet, even if there is a misunderstanding at the beginning, the majority of them will quickly learn the truth. Then, how can we not hurry up to clarify the truth?My understanding of the Internet Blockade.
Through the years, the so-called Internet Blockade has remained. In the past we looked for ways to overcome it, but now I am gradually realizing that this is a problem that relates to our righteous thoughts and elevation of our xinxing. It is very urgent nowadays to save people; everything we do is to save people. As long as our xingxing meets the standard, Master will create conditions for Dafa disciples. Master said:
"What's important for cultivators is righteous thoughts. When you have strong righteous thoughts, you are able to withstand anything and do anything." ("Teaching the Fa in the City of Los Angeles")
When fellow practitioners in our group had difficulties, we did not believe it was an individual matter. We became even more diligent, coordinated even better, and helped each other unconditionally. We paid close attention to doing the three things and did not let it become a formality. We make our truth clarification materials carefully, and they are always able to break through the blockades and reach sentient beings.
Numerous people who do not cultivate are also clarifying the truth. As Dafa disciples we cannot slack off even a little bit. Master said:
"That is to say, don't pay any mind to whatever the reality of today's mankind is or however rampant the evil is: The people who have come to this world are waiting for you to save them!" ("Fa Teaching at the U.S. Capital")
Whenever I remember Master's Fa, I dare not pursue any leisure or comfort.
This is my experience to share. Please kindly point out my shortcomings.
