When Our Truth Clarification Is Not Effective
(Minghui.org) Many Falun Gong practitioners have devoted large amounts of time to saving sentient beings and bringing awareness of the persecution to the world's people. However, they have often noticed that even though they've tried their best, the people they've spoken to seemed not to be moved, were unconvinced, or refused to withdraw from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and related organizations.
The practitioners began to search within. Some thought that maybe they hadn't been studying the Fa enough lately; some felt that they were very busy at the time and were therefore too preoccupied to be effective when talking to people; some thought that they perhaps needed to change the way that they presented the main talking points.
I discussed the issue with a fellow practitioner who has a very high success rate in persuading others to withdraw from the CCP. She makes phone calls daily and is able to help dozens of people withdraw on a daily basis. Her method of exposing the persecution is not complicated; she told me that she asks Master to strengthen her and to save that person. She also tries to communicate with that person's main consciousness, urging them to not get lost in the human world and to listen to the facts carefully, so as to secure a safe future.
I have had similar experiences myself. Whenever I was able to be effective in reaching others and they agreed to choose the right path, I found that I was very focused at those times; every thought I had was to awaken that person. When it seemed hopeless at times, I would ask Master for help, and many times, things turned around.
I believe that the process of our bringing awareness to others is also the process of awakening their main consciousness. I also believe that it is a process for Falun Gong practitioners to eliminate attachments and reinforce their righteous thoughts.
The main consciousness plays the leading role. Even though on the surface it appears that we are simply talking to a person, in fact we are communicating with their understanding side. When we are able to awaken that person's main consciousness, their understanding side, the rest is much easier.
I hope that fellow practitioners will allow their righteous thoughts to guide them. We must not be disturbed or interfered with by human attachments and must stay focused on the task. When we can do this, I am sure that more and more people will understand and choose a bright future.
