(Minghui.org) May 13 this year will mark the 23rd World Falun Dafa Day and the 30th anniversary of Falun Dafa’s introduction to the public. Significant changes have taken place in the human society during the past three decades and the Fa-rectification is also transitioning to the period of the Fa rectifying the human world. Time is pressing, but many people have not learned the truth about Dafa and the persecution and have yet to be saved.
At present, the human world is in the late stage of the “destruction” period in the cycle of “formation, stasis, degeneration, and destruction.” Chaos abounds. Particularly in China, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has been brainwashing citizens with the Party culture and atheism since it took power in 1949. By defaming Falun Dafa with lies, the regime is poisoning people and turning them against the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. This has led to the sharp decline of moral values in China. With material interest dominating the world, people treat each other as enemies and there is no sense of security in society.
At the same time, with strong faith in the success of the Fa-rectification, the majority of people descended to the human world from higher levels for the purpose of obtaining Dafa. Although deeply lost in the false reality of society, deep in their hearts they are still eager to return to their origin. Many of them have pondered the purpose of life, but have not found an answer.
As such, the Minghui Editorial Board is calling for submissions from Dafa practitioners in both mainland China and the rest of the world. The submissions can include cultivation stories, music, poetry, calligraphy, and so on. This will help people from all walks of life see that Falun Dafa is wonderful and that the practice has tremendous benefits.
Many practitioners miraculously recovered from their illnesses after they took up Falun Dafa. A large number of practitioners had also been painstakingly seeking the purpose of life until they found Falun Dafa and the teachings answered all their questions about life, society, and existence in the universe... Regardless of what reasons brought them into Dafa, people all began a new chapter in their lives and their moral values improved dramatically overall.
Cultivating amidst human society, Dafa practitioners have their family lives, work environments, and all kinds of social interactions. Meanwhile, we have been applying the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance to our daily work and lives, whether dealing with conflicts, facing the temptation of material interest, encountering adversities, or suffering the persecution. There are many touching stories of this kind. Even in some trivial matters, people can witness how Falun Dafa has taught us to be good, which may awaken them and strengthen their conscience.
Let us tell our real stories, along with the benefits to our family, relatives, and friends, some of whom are even able to act according to the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance when handling issues or interacting with people. This will help more people to realize that our world needs the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. As more people realize this, they will be able to break away from the CCP’s lies and choose a brighter future.
These submissions are for people from all walks of life, including those who have yet to learn what Falun Dafa is. Please be mindful of this when preparing the submissions. The word choice and structure should help readers to understand our articles and other types of submissions.
