(Minghui.org) I was very nervous when I first started to phone people in China who were involved in the persecution, such as those who worked in public security, the procuratorate, and courts. I hoped my calls would be answered, but at the same time I was frightened. 

I was afraid that I would fail to save the person, I was afraid of losing face, and I was afraid of being verbally abused or threatened. I also had a combative mentality. Sometimes after picking up the phone I was covered in sweat and felt like I had a stone in my throat, especially when police officers swore at me.

I realized that my fear was an attachment that I needed to eliminate. I kept sending righteous thoughts to dissolve it. I thought that making the phone calls was a good opportunity for me to eliminate my fear and I could also save people.

I gradually corrected my negative thoughts. I knew this was a part of my cultivation. The practitioners inside China risk their lives to save people. Compared to them, the difficulties I faced were nothing.

“I Can Tell You're Trying to Help Me”

When I called a police officer, he said, “Don't waste your time.” Then he repeated the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) lies and hung up on me. I was not moved. I asked Master to strengthen me and dialed his number again.

“You're a smart person,” I said. “Yet you believe a lie.” When he asked which lie, I began telling him about the staged self-immolation and about the 1989 Tiananmen Square massacre. Then I offered him an Internet address so he could see real news from outside of China.

After he wrote down the address, he asked why I’d phoned him. “I just want what's best for you,” I said. His voice suddenly softened, and he said, “I can tell you're trying to help me.” 

He gave me his personal phone number and said he trusted me. I told him not to participate in the persecution of Falun Dafa. I then talked more about Falun Dafa and the persecution, including the live organ harvesting. I advised him to quit the CCP. He gave me his name and asked me to help him quit.

All lives are waiting to be saved. I know that everything is done by Master Li. As a Dafa practitioner, clarifying the truth and saving people are our duty. In the process I can also eliminate my human attachments and improve my xinxing.

Detention Center Director Apologizes

One day I called the director of a detention center. This person was directly involved in arresting a practitioner couple. At first he refused to listen and kept hanging up on me. He even swore at me.

I didn't give up and kept sending righteous as I spoke. He finally listened to what I had to say. I told him why millions of people worldwide practice Falun Dafa and about the importance of quitting the CCP. When he heard that the book Zhuan Falun answers fundamental questions about mankind and the universe, he said he wanted to read it.

I told him he should contact the practitioners he persecuted. “They will help you,” I said, “and they won't hate you for what you did to them.”

He then updated me about the arrested practitioner couple. He said the husband had been released and the wife would be released soon. He said he'd stop persecuting practitioners. He apologized and said, “I'm sorry I had a bad attitude about you.” 

I said it didn't matter as long as he understood the truth. I'm so grateful that Master arranged this opportunity for this man to know the truth and make the right choice!

Eliminating My Attachments and Saving People

One morning, after someone answered, I briefly introduced myself and began to talk about Falun Dafa and the persecution. The person listened for more than 10 minutes until the connection was cut.

My attachments of zealotry and showing off surfaced. I thought it was a pity that I didn't record the call since I spoke so well.

My wrong thought immediately brought trouble. After I reconnected, the person at the other end started to swear at me. He had a strong accent and I didn't fully understand what he was yelling. I tried several times. Each time he picked up the phone, he swore at me for quite a while, then he hung up.

I knew I made a mistake. I asked Master to help me. I kept sending righteous thoughts to eliminate the negative elements behind this. I tried to continue telling the person about the persecution but he didn't want to listen. I didn't want to give up, especially since it was my wrong thought that caused this situation.

When I studied the Fa teachings around lunchtime, I felt very guilty and dared not look at Master's picture. I asked Master to forgive me and let this man be saved.

After I finished phoning all the other numbers, I decided to call this man again. As soon as he answered, he began swearing. I turned down the volume. I started to clarify the truth from the beginning. I emphasized that good deeds are rewarded and wrong ones are punished. When I turned the volume back up, I heard him say, “I understand! I won't participate in the persecution anymore!”

When I asked him if he really understood, he said he did. I said that, even though he swore at me, I did not swear at him. I only wanted him to understand that participating in the persecution was bad.

I felt a strong energy field. All his bad thoughts were repressed. I asked if he wanted to quit the CCP. He asked me to text him the address to quit.

I remembered Master's words:

“Diamond is tempered many times, the red dynasty disintegratesFa disciples return to heaven, fulfilling their vows”(“Burning the Red Demon, Tempering the Diamond,” Hong Yin IV)

I know that everything comes from Master and Dafa. I used to be shy and selfish and had difficulty talking to strangers. Dafa helped me become a selfless person who thinks of others first.

Making truth-clarification phone calls to China is now something that I feel I must do every day. It’s become my favorite thing to do. By doing this, I now harbor far less competitiveness and resentment. I even sound kinder.

I'm so grateful for all that Master has given me!
