Awakening People's Conscience
(Minghui.org) In order to help more people learn the truth about Falun Dafa and the persecution, I use a system called RTC to make phone calls to China. The percentage of successful connections for my RTC calls has been rather low lately. For those calls that did successfully connect, people listened for only a short time and then hung up.
I was moved by a fellow practitioner’s experience sharing on this issue. I thought that she must be truly compassionate to give such a good speech. I felt embarrassed when looking at myself, as I felt that I was at a much lower level of understanding.
Finding Successful Communication Methods
“Master, I’ve found my problem,” I said in my mind. “I was trying to fulfill my responsibilities when awakening people's consciences. I worked hard, spent a lot of time, and did a lot of things. But, I looked upon awakening the conscience of people as a job that I had to do. I did not truly devote my heart to it. I just followed the routine. Occasionally there were people quitting the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its youth organizations, but the number was much lower when I compared it to those of other practitioners.”
I promised Master that I would do well in making phone calls and awakening people's consciences. In the past I was lazy and typically talked to people using scripts that other practitioners had written. I decided that I would talk to people using my own scripts. I would decide how to talk based on the situation, learn from my experiences, and modify my strategy.
I read the information I could find on the RTC platform. I selected the best parts and re-arranged them into paragraphs. I created folders with different names and put related materials into different folders. The results were excellent when I made phone calls the next day.
I opened the appropriate folders and found the corresponding materials as soon as the other party talked about a subject or raised a question. I followed the order of the questions and answered them one after another.
I talked a lot that day, and the person on the other end of the line was so interested that they would not hang up. My experience was that whenever I devoted my heart to it, the phone calls went smoothly.
I had only one thought at the time, “This life will lose out if he does not know the truth, and so will the cosmic body that he represents. That means innumerable sentient beings would be destroyed.”
We do not need to always start with the same opening when we talk to people. We need to modify and change it depending on the situation.
I did not talk to people because I wanted to talk. I did it because I had to help them, truly cherish their lives, and recognize they will be hopeless if I cannot convince them of the truth. When I truly devote my heart to it, the sentient beings will be helped.
“I am making this call to wish you safety and wellness,” I said. “Indeed as the old saying goes, ‘One will benefit if one follows the will of the heaven.’ It is useless relying on other people or the government when disasters hit. One will be protected by the divine if one establishes good relationships with the divine. So I want to help you quit the CCP organizations today by giving you a fictitious name.
“When you stop being a part of the CCP, having quit it, you nullify the vows you made when you joined the Party. You no longer follow its atheist teachings and you are no longer one of its members. The divine only cares about people’s thoughts. Do you agree to quit the CCP organizations?”
People typically would agree. I would not push further if they did not. I would urge them to remember “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” I told them they would benefit.
I would provide them with a few examples. “A youngster in Wuhan contracted the coronavirus. He got a phone call from overseas asking him to quit the CCP at the hospital. He took the advice. He also recited ‘Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good,’ as he was told. He was discharged from the hospital soon after.”
Clarifying the Facts About Dafa
If I had not yet convinced the individual, I would discuss the basic facts about Dafa. I would explain what Falun Dafa is, and how good it is. Then, I would urge him to quit the CCP.
If that person still expressed his doubts, I would talk about the Tiananmen Square self-immolation hoax, and the organ harvesting from practitioners. Harvesting organs from practitioners was described as “a form of evil that has never occurred before on this planet.” This is why we need to quit the CCP.
I would tell them that the CCP has been killing people during all of its past campaigns, and even cannibalism occurred. This is the nature of the CCP. They have always ruled by lies and violence.
Now many people are willing to listen to my calls. Through studying Dafa and learning from other practitioners’ experiences, I no longer feel timid when making calls.
Although I read my manuscripts, I feel confident since I have a lot of materials prepared. I feel even if they do not quit the CCP, I will still let them listen to as many facts as possible. Once they hear enough facts and learn the truth, they will quit the CCP organizations.
