(Minghui.org) As the pandemic continues to spread, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is still using all kinds of tricks to try to deceive the world. The time for people to understand the truth and be saved is running out, and time is becoming more and more precious. I would like to talk about my experience of eliminating interference and clarifying the facts in the current environment.
Breaking Through the Atheist Concept in People’s Mind
I often have the opportunity to work with some department-level or bureau-level officials. They are often more deeply entrenched in the CCP’s ideology of materialism, atheism and evolution theory than most ordinary people. When I clarify the facts to them, especially when I talk about the phrase “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good,” they often have a hard time accepting it, thinking that it is superstitious, idealistic and unscientific. Their notions are deeply ingrained, making it very difficult to eliminate them from their minds. As long as we can dismantle any one of them, though, the absurdity of the whole thing will be revealed.
I sometimes start by telling them that there was an invention called the “Thinking Cap,” which can amplify brain waves emitted by people and be used for controlling robots or for other entertainment purposes. Researchers at MIT and Boston University developed a feedback system that allows robots to read human minds when humans wear this “thinking cap.” The cap reads and analyzes EEG, which is then received by the robots, and the robots will act accordingly. This way, people can essentially control the robots with our thoughts.
There was a similar use of it in Shanghai’s Museum of Science and Technology. Inside the museum, there were many technological exhibits. Among them was a game called “pushing the ball with one’s mind,” which was very impressive. After visiting there, one elementary school student wrote about it, saying, “My dad and I sat down on opposite sides of the table, and we each put on a black ear clip and a device for receiving brain waves. We were told to focus on the small ball in the middle and use our thoughts to push it toward the other side. The green light flashed and the game began! I immediately entered into a meditative state and focused all my attention on the little ball. There was only one thought in my mind: move, move, move... As time passed, the little ball slowly moved in the direction toward my Dad, Finally, under my powerful thoughts, the ball rolled over the red line, and I won!”
The experiment and game both showed that people emit brain waves while thinking, and although they are very weak, it is still a type of substance that can be amplified. This showed that thoughts, which are normally considered to be spiritual, are also material, and the two are really of one nature. That is to say, the conclusion that matter is primary and consciousness is secondary in Marxist ideology, is wrong if judged by modern science. In other words, the theoretical basis of materialism has been proven to be incorrect by modern science.
Considering the above, when I then talked about the power of reciting the phrases “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good,” it would be more easily understood by officials who have been deeply poisoned by the CCP’s ideology.
Clarifying the Facts to Students Studying Abroad and Their Parents
In 2020, there was a group of people who were particularly anxious given the pandemic -- the parents of students who were studying abroad. With the spread of the virus overseas, every day these parents were watching anxiously the situation in the places where their children were, and paying close attention to the international flight situation from those places.
Starting from March 29, 2020, the Civil Aviation Administration of China implemented a policy for international flights, which put restrictions on each airline stating that only one flight to a specific country was allowed each week. This strict policy for international flights resulted in many cancellations and a large number of students abroad being stranded in a foreign land, unable to return home. Some airlines took advantage of the situation, and raised the fares several times higher than normal. This greatly increased the financial burden on the parents. Focusing on both the mental and financial stress that these parents were going through, it was relatively easy to get straight to the point when clarifying the facts to them.
I usually first asked the parents if their children were planning to stay abroad or were trying to find a ticket to return home. If they were staying abroad, I would tell the parents that their children should find out how the locals were protecting themselves from the virus. In particular, they could take advantage of the uncensored Internet abroad to search for “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good,” and see examples of the miracles people experienced after reciting it. This would boost their confidence in believing in the power of reciting the words. If their children had bought plane tickets and were going to return to China, I would tell them to ask their children to recite the auspicious phrases during the trip and the quarantine period after getting off the plane. I would also use this as an opportunity to tell them about the hoax self-immolation incident on Tianamen Square that the CCP used to frame Falun Dafa, and other lies that the CCP had generated, so that they could understand the truth about the CCP and receive blessings.
In February 2020, I met two students who returned to China for the Chinese New Year. I asked them if they had seen anyone abroad wearing a yellow T-shirt with the words “Falun Dafa is good” on it. They said they had, and they saw them holding rallies and handing out fliers. I said, “Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance are universal values, and have positive meanings in any country. These are the values that Falun Dafa practitioners follow. They become better people with improved morals. At the same time, the practitioners use their spare time to do the five sets of exercises, which helps keep them in great health.”
One of them asked, “If Falun Dafa is so good, why is it banned in China?”
“Have you heard about the Anti-Rightist Movement? I asked. “Looking back nowadays, those who were labeled rightists were all good people. They dared to speak the truth, and they were the elites of that generation. But in the 1950s and 1960s, they were labeled as 'demons' and 'black fives' under the CCP’s propaganda machines. Why? Because the CCP just labels anyone who it wants to target, and then it spreads lies and propaganda throughout the nation to slander them. Over time, people can no longer distinguish between good and bad.”
One of them said excitedly, “I understand now. I heard from my father that the former landlords in our village were all good people, but in order to steal their land, the CCP called them bad and targeted them to get rid of them. It seems that the CCP is also using the same tactics against Falun Dafa.”
After clearing their doubts, they agreed to quit the CCP’s Young Pioneers (one of the communist Party’s youth organizations), and said that they would recite “Falun Dafa is good.” One of them later found a job after school. He stayed very healthy and his work was recognized and praised. The other continued to study abroad and was able to find a moderately priced plane ticket during the summer to fly back home. He stayed healthy the whole time, and his trip back home, including the quarantine process, all went very smoothly. Thanks to our compassionate Master, another two sentient beings were saved at this critical moment in history.
“Thank You So Much For Telling Me These Lucky Words”
I often get to work with college interns during their summer vacation. As the recent summer holidays were about to end, I realized that my encounters with them were not accidental, and I must use the opportunity to clarify the facts with them. I didn’t want to leave any regrets.
I asked one of them, “You’ll soon leave. What are your plans for the future?” He said he originally wanted to study in the United States, but since the relationship between China and the U.S. had been so tense, he was considering studying in the United Kingdom instead.
I responded, “The US’s sanctions against the CCP will be followed by other western countries, including the UK. So going there won’t necessarily be a solution. From what I understand, the US government is only targeting the CCP and its followers, not the rest of the Chinese people. As long as you make a sincere statement on the Epoch Times website that you will withdraw from the CCP and its youth organizations, you will be welcomed by the United States.
Western countries lead by the United States is now more aware of the evil nature of the CCP, and a total block of the CCP will take place eventually. If you know how to get through the Internet blockade, be sure to browse the Epoch Times website. Search for how to stay safe by quitting the CCP, and quit as early as possible.” He said that he would do that.
I continued, “The threat is still there with the pandemic. Let me tell you nine lucky words. If you recite them often, it will help improve your immunity, and the virus will not be able to affect you.” He asked what nine words. I replied, “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.”
He looked very excited as he counted the words on his fingers. “Thank you so much for telling me these lucky words!”
I said, “If you have a free Internet, you can search for this and see the miraculous experiences people around the world have had after reciting it. As long as you say it sincerely, miracles will surely happen.”
The virus is still spreading, and the situation may worsen again in China. The persecution of Falun Dafa is still severe in some regions. My understanding is that, no matter how the situation changes in society, and no matter what interference we get from work, family, and our own attachments, Dafa practitioners should not relax in doing the three things that we are supposed to do. At my current level of understanding, these are the fundamentals that Dafa practitioners should adhere to.
Thank you Master! Thank you fellow practitioners!
