(Minghui.org) I remember reading an article about an old couple, both practitioners, trying to clarify the facts to their son-in-law. The old couple told the son-in-law, a college student, about traditional culture, and then asked casually, “Do you understand?” The son-in-law said, “No.” The old couple were very upset: it wasn’t profound knowledge, so how come he did not understand? Reading this, I knew the son-in-law really didn’t understand, because I had encountered the same thing.

After I was released from the brainwashing center and was forced to divorce, I was taken home by my parents. There were no practitioners around, and I was being watched, so I closed myself off at home and didn’t go out. Later on there was less harassment, but I still didn’t study the Fa. After a few years, I found myself becoming like an ordinary person. I realized that I couldn’t be like this. I must break out of this state, and I must practice cultivation.

I remember the first time I watched a lecture exposing the Communist Party’s wicked history, I couldn’t understand it. It wasn't until I watched it a second time that I suddenly understood and realized that I could use some of the contents to clarify the truth to others. This experience made me understand how their son-in-law couldn’t understand. There was a substance blocking him. Once he hears the truth enough times, the substance surrounding him will dissolve and he will understand.

How to Break Through

We need to be more patient and explain things a few more times, and then we may break through the substance preventing him from understanding. The same is true for clarifying the truth. If a practitioner can’t persuade the person, then we should keep trying until one day he quits the CCP and tells you that several people have spoken to him but he didn’t withdraw, and today your words made him understand. His withdrawal from the Party is not achieved at once. It’s like a piece of gold buried in the soil–that soil must be removed layer by layer until the gold is revealed. So we must be more patient in clarifying the truth, and try to explain repeatedly.

This is the first time that I have submitted an article, please kindly correct me if I’m wrong.
