“Zero-Out” Campaign vs. Saving Sentient Beings
(Minghui.org) The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) launched a “Zero-Out” campaign against Falun Gong practitioners nationwide. There must be something that we should cultivate away if this happened on a large scale in the final stage of the Fa-rectification period. When we face persecution, it is crucial that we let go of selfishness and the fear of being persecuted. Everything we do is for the salvation of sentient beings. We cultivate ourselves and become selfless beings.
It’s not easy to meet high-ranking officers from legal departments, but this time they came to us. Doesn’t it mean that they want to be saved?
As I see it, whoever comes to see me must be predestined and wants to be saved. Whoever I come across in my daily life is waiting to be saved. The officer from the local community center came to see me several years after I was released from prison. She said that I wouldn’t be monitored if I signed a statement denouncing Falun Gong. I told her that I didn’t sign any statement in prison and I would not sign any statement here, either. Then I asked her if she was a Chinese Communist Party member and clarified the truth to her. She agreed to withdraw from the CCP without hesitation. I knew in my heart that she came to see me because she wanted to withdraw from the CCP.
An officer at the local community center told me that the Party secretary of the district community center was looking for me this past October. She was nervous and asked if I was making trouble; she was worried about me. I assured her that everything was ok. In my heart I knew that it was an opportunity for me to clarify the truth and save her. The human world is a giant stage and Dafa practitioners have to play the lead roles well and save the beings who can be saved. When problems arise, I should not assume that I will be persecuted. Rather, I should think of saving sentient beings first. With this confidence my fear vanished because I knew that Master Li and Dafa were with me.
I was at the district community center for over an hour and was the one doing all the talking. I told the Party secretary the facts about Falun Gong, my cultivation stories and some stories of retribution. I told him that he would accumulate a lot of virtue if he treated Falun Gong practitioners kindly. He agreed to withdraw from the CCP and saw me off at the gate.
He called me again two weeks later and said that he wanted to come to see me. He came with a lady this time; he wanted her to persuade me to give up cultivating Falun Gong during the so-called “zero-out” campaign. I didn’t know who the lady was. He asked her if she came in a police car and where it was parked. I wasn’t moved and just clarified the truth to them. She agreed to withdraw from the CCP.
They pointed to the picture on the wall with the three characters “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance” and said that these principles should be the guide for human beings and everyone should comply with these principles.
They insisted on inviting me to lunch. During the meal, they kept serving me and even let me take all the leftovers. I told them that I was so fortunate to come across them, who were kindhearted. We said goodbye in a friendly atmosphere. Actually, they felt happy for being saved.
When I clarified the truth to them, I treated them as my friends and family. I talked to them from their perspective with compassion and let them feel that I did it for their benefit. I told them that Falun Gong is a Buddha Law and persecuting Falun Gong was not a minor thing. Now the pandemic has spread and it is more important that they stay healthy and safe than having a lot of money or high-ranking positions.
Falun Gong teaches the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. The world would become much better if people adhered to these principles. Why do we have so many natural disasters and manmade catastrophes? It is because people’s moral standards have slid down. If they treat Falun Gong practitioners kindly, they will be blessed. I asked them to withdraw from the CCP because if they did, the Buddha Law would keep them healthy and safe. I asked them to repeat “Falun Dafa is good” and “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” so they’d stay safe during this pandemic.
I persuaded the director of the local police station to withdraw from the CCP when he was carrying out this “Zero-Out” campaign. Any celestial changes are to help practitioners to clarify the truth and save sentient beings. Nothing is more important than saving sentient beings. Lives have come for the Fa.

We must do well. In order to save more sentient beings, we must first cultivate ourselves well. People typically think I am very kind. When we consider others first, they will feel it. So when we cultivate ourselves well, everyday people will see the power of Dafa from us.
I don’t have the concept of being persecuted in my heart. I only think of sentient beings. My only wish is that all beings be saved!
