Members of Our Fa-Study Group Clarify the Truth in Different Ways
(Clearwisdom.net) We recently held an experience sharing session within our Fa study group and discussed some incidents and understandings we had when we assisted Master with Fa-rectification and offering sentient beings salvation.
Practitioner A: Avoiding danger by having Master and the Fa in your heart
As a practitioner all these years, I have profoundly felt that as long as I have Master and the Fa in my heart, I would sense that Master is right by our sides and protecting us. Whenever some strange things came up, it was Master who brushed aside our anxiety and worries. Thus we could overcome the difficulty and avoid danger.
At one occasion I went to the countryside to distribute Falun Gong brochures. I was unaware that someone from the police station had been following me for a long time. As soon as I finished distributing the flyers, that man blocked my way and said in a threatening manner, “You are distributing Falun Gong material. Go to the police station!” I said, “The reason I give out such materials is to let people know the truth. That is doing something good. Why would I need to go to the police station?” Just then, three young men arrived. They fussed at him and told me to run away. I said, “Thank you. I hope you remember, that Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good. This can ensure your safety when you are in danger.”
Several practitioners and I took a bus another night to distribute materials somewhere else. Once we got off the bus we found that we were at the wrong place. Since we were there, we thought of the people that need to be saved there. We gave out the materials as we walked. When we finished, we saw that we were lost. It was late at night. What we could do? We turned to Master. We stood by the road and spoke silently in our hearts, “Master, we are lost. Please help!” After a while a big truck came. It happened to be going to the city we wanted to reach, and the driver gave us a ride.
Another night one summer I was giving out materials in another township. It was already one o’clock in the morning. There was still an old couple sitting outside, enjoying the cool air. I went over to them and told them the facts about Falun Gong and handed them a DVD. Just then, a man inside the house shouted, “How dare you hand out Falun Gong materials here? I will make a call to have you arrested." He dialed a number on his cell phone. His behavior irritated the old man, who said to the young man, “Look at this old lady. She brought us materials in the middle of the night. Not only did you not say ‘thank you,' but you even want to report her.” As he spoke, he grabbed a chair and threw it at the young man. The noise woke the neighbors. People came out to see what was happening. I thought it was a good opportunity to talk to that many people all at once. I told them the facts, and they immediately asked for flyers. I gave them all I had.
Practitioner B: The police also need to know the truth
One time, another practitioner and I told people the facts about Falun Gong at a crowded bus station. Some people listened, some not. One young man made a call on his cell phone. We didn’t pay him any attention. After a while a number of police officers appeared. They demanded to know, “What are you talking about here?” I said, “We are telling people the facts about Falun Gong. Falun Gong tells people to be kind based on Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.” They said, “Stop and go away!” As I left I said, “I hope you will remember, ‘Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness- Compassion-Forbearance is good.”
Another time I told people about Falun Gong in a market. There were many people, including a middle-aged couple. After standing there and listening for a while the man suddenly said, “Do you know what I do? I am a police officer.” I said, “Since you are a police officer, I should tell you the facts." I related the physical and spiritual changes I experienced after practicing Falun Gong; about the evil Party's brutal persecution of Dafa, and about quitting the Chinese Communist Party. They stood there and listened quietly. In the end, both of them withdrew from the Party and kept saying, “Thank you.”
Practitioner C: Sentient beings crave the truth
I used to be a Party official and have a lot of things in my brain from the Party culture. After cleansing my thoughts for a long time and studying the Fa, I am able to tell people the facts. Once three of us practitioners went to a township to distribute informational materials. Many people were sitting in front of a house. I went over to hand out materials. One of them said in a threatening manner: “What do you do? Are you a Falun Gong practitioner? I will have you arrested." I said, “I must tell you the facts." I continued speaking with them. The man said, “We understand now.” That incident really touched me.
Another time, I went during the daytime to deliver Shen Yun DVDs. I saw a few people that looked like officials chatting together in one place. I went over to introduce them to Shen Yun. They said, “Are you a Falun Gong practitioner? Show us your exercises.” I told them that I would show them if they each would take the materials I had. I gave DVDs to each person and then demonstrated the five exercises as they watched with interest.
Once my younger brother's manager came by. He gave me a ride. I told him the truth about Falun Gong and told him the importance of withdrawing from the CCP. He withdrew from the Party and told me to be careful.
Practitioner D: Fearless when telling the facts
I think that, for a Dafa disciple, believing in Master and believing in the Fa is the first priority. We can only have energy after studying the Fa well. This is especially true when telling the facts face to face. Initially I had fear, and knew I had to diligently study the Fa.
I've met many policemen when telling people the facts, but I have no fear, because I used to be a police officer myself. Sometimes when I share that, it seems the distance between us suddenly shrinks, and it's easy to talk to them. Over the years, about 30 policemen have withdrawn from the CCP because of me. Sometimes people are happy to see me when I explain the facts about Dafa. When they happened to see me, they used their own experiences to help me. That had a special effect.
Practitioner E: Righteous thoughts need to be strong when telling the facts
I used to have many illnesses. Although I am a doctor, I could do nothing about my own health problems. After practicing Dafa, Master helped me eliminate them.
Once I went out to clarify the truth to a man in his 40s. He has a son. I started with him, and he quickly withdrew from the Young Pioneers. Then I turned to the man. He was afraid at first and said that the Party gave me money and asked why I still opposed it. I said, “The Communist Party is spending money collected from the common people; on top of that, this Party is so corrupt. Every political movement (they initiated) is about persecuting kind people.” He finally withdrew from the Party.
My experiences are that our righteous thoughts must be strong when we are involved in explaining the facts. We should not be influenced by the person's mood. We have to firmly believe that Master is right by our side. That usually has a good effect.
Practitioner F: Listen to Master; be righteous in your heart and mind
We would run into all kinds of people when clarifying the truth. Some would accept us, some would not, some would even report us. As long as we listen to Master and are righteous in our thoughts, we will not be affected by external factors.
I used to have a clear dream before four of us set off to distribute informational materials. I dreamed that I explained the facts to several people. As I was speaking, many people and a yellow dog gathered around. The dog jumped on me. I told it that I had come to rescue people. It listened to me, wagged its tail, and sat down. The next day I told another practitioner of this dream. The practitioner said that this dream might be an omen, that we might have troubles when we went out. He suggested we send righteous thoughts for the places we were going to and to deny any interference.
A week later we went to a village to distribute materials. With Master's merciful protection we finished the task safely.
Herewith our disciples would like to say, “Thank you, Master!”
