(Minghui.org) I began to truly practice Falun Dafa this year. I learned about the practice and the five exercises when I visited the U.S. After I returned to China, I could not find any practitioners in my area. All I had was a copy of Zhuan Falun. So my cultivation state was off and on for two years. I’d like to tell you about my experiences.

I learned to send righteous thoughts and clarify the truth on my own by going on the Internet. I was afraid to go out at first. I selected people whom I believed were more inclined to cultivate or those who studied Buddhism or Taoism. I thought they would began practicing Falun Dafa when they heard about such a good cultivation way.

But things were not as I thought. They were unwilling to give up what they had. And those who had long been poisoned by the CCP’s (Chinese Communist Party) propaganda were frightened to even talk about Dafa. I was disappointed.

I was wrong in wanting people who practiced other belief systems to give them up. I realized from studying the Fa that it’s sufficient to introduce them to Falun Dafa and explain the truth about the CCP. Rather than focusing on each person’s situation, I had talked too much and at too high a level, so my efforts were not very successful.

Also, I felt fear when I clarified the truth. As a result, I was not very confident, and I was even worried about being reported. I was not thorough enough in pointing out the true nature of the CCP.

I read many articles written by practitioners on Minghui and compared my behavior to theirs. Through continued Fa-study, I discovered the two fundamental attachments and notions that hampered my clarifying the truth and saving people.

Telling the Facts to Strangers

I'm in awe of veteran practitioners. They go out every day and tell the facts about Falun Dafa to strangers. I could not do it. I work as a doctor and have a busy schedule. When I read on Minghui how the CCP cruelly persecutes practitioners, I felt frightened. I was a new practitioner, and I didn’t have anyone to discuss things with. I didn’t know how to go out and clarify the truth.

But I felt compelled to talk to people, and it’s one of the three things that Master Li asks us to do. However, when I clarified the truth to a stranger, he told me he would call the police. I was scared.

I learned that practitioners are all kings and lords who came to this world from heavenly realms. Doesn’t Dafa empower us and give us capabilities to do things well? Master said we don’t have examples to follow, and we should not mimic others. I felt this means we need to validate the Fa in our own way. So what capabilities did I have?

Since I'm a doctor, I could start by talking to my patients, colleagues, family members, and students. I first divided the people I knew into groups. As long as one person in a family understands the truth, the entire family has the opportunity to hear it.

By talking to one member of each family I was able to help over 30 people quit the CCP and its affiliates. For those who did not even join the Young Pioneers, I just told them the facts about Dafa and asked them to remember “Falun Dafa is good.”

When I increased the length of time I read the Fa, the effect of my clarifying the truth improved. My family members were all saved, and many of my good friends had begun to study the Fa and do the exercises with me.

My parents have been doing the exercises with me for several months. They even do the exercises by themselves. Six months after he began practicing, my father could meditate in the full-lotus position.

Now I tell people the facts about the persecution and ask them to quit the CCP and its affiliates first. Afterwards, depending on the situation, I download all of Master’s lectures and videos for them. I later ask them if they want to read the teachings or learn the exercises.

In this way, I not only tell people about Dafa, I slowly guide them to study the Fa and do the exercises. I believe many people will know Dafa’s value once they read the Fa teachings.

Printing and Distributing Materials

I still cannot printout Dafa information materials. There are no practitioners around me that I can ask for help. So I often buy a few dozen memory cards and download videos of Master’s lectures, books, and exercises onto them. I will give them to whomever wants one. If they find it interesting, we can talk more the next time we meet. For those who are poisoned by the CCP's propaganda, I direct them to read the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party.

I recently stopped saying that I'm a new practitioner. I think anyone who truly practices Falun Dafa needs to follow Master’s requirements and do them well. I found that when my thoughts were on the Fa and saving people, my fear automatically disappears. Such a great Fa naturally eliminates anything that is incorrect.

My sense of urgency became even stronger after I read Master’s article “Wake Up.” I know I still need to catch up with the process of Master’s Fa-rectification.

Maintain a Compassionate Mindset

I find that I’m still attached to selfishness and outcome when I talk to people—but I know I shouldn’t have any thought of pursuit. The other party doesn’t have to accept what I say. I also should not talk at too high a level. One needs to judge the listener’s circumstances and ability to accept the truth. If telling the person once does not work, one can try again later. Just don’t lose confidence because what’s most important is we have reached out to them. If we have compassion the result will be good.

We young professionals all have our social circles. We can start by talking to people we know well and later approach those we just met. Gradually, telling people the facts about Falun Dafa will become a natural part of our life.

We should never judge people or target certain groups to clarify the truth to. For example, we may say, “This person is an atheist who believes in nothing,” or “This person has a bad personality. He is combative.” We should drop all such notions.

We should also not choose certain people but talk to whomever we meet. Just naturally say whatever comes to mind. Gradually, our righteous thoughts will become stronger. Our notions toward people will disappear, and we will be able to treat everyone the same. We need to try to offer salvation to every person we interact with.

Master said in “Fa Teaching at the 2016 New York Fa Conference”:

“In the process of doing things, what’s looked at is your hearts, not your success itself. In the process of doing things you can save people! Your process of doing things is also a process of you elevating in cultivation, which, at the same time, plays the role of saving sentient beings! It is not that only if you succeed in doing that thing can you play the role of saving sentient beings.”

Above is my personal cultivation experience. Because I cultivate by myself, I can only try my best to figure things out on my own.

A paragraph of Master’s Fa inspired me:

“The three things that Master has taught you in the Fa to do well seem simple, but [things such as] whether you are diligent and the celestial rank you will achieve are linked to it.” (“Fa Teaching Given at the 2006 Conference in Canada”, Collected Teachings Given Around the World, Vol. VII)

“Many students understand only that doing the exercises and studying the Fa are cultivation. Yes, with those you directly engage the Fa. But as you go about truly cultivating yourself in your day-to-day life, the society that you come into contact with is your cultivation environment.” (“Fa Teaching Given at the 2006 Conference in Canada”, Collected Teachings Given Around the World, Vol. VII)

Master’s Fa-rectification of the human world has begun. We need to wake up and treat seriously the issue of how to behave righteously and properly.
