Improving Xinxing During Truth-clarification

June 16, 2023 |   By a Falun Dafa practitioner in Australia

(Minghui.org) I downloaded a telephone script from the Minghui website one night, and was getting ready to make truth-clarification phone calls, but I became rather sleepy, and could barely keep my eyes open. Knowing that it was the evil elements in other dimensions trying to prevent me from calling, I realized the true importance of truth-clarification.

From then on, almost every time I send forth righteous thoughts, I added a thought to eliminate the obstacles to making truth-clarification phone calls.

Oftentimes, when I experienced a breakthrough in clarifying the truth, it had something to do with my xinxing improvement. I once said to myself when I had difficulty advancing in truth-clarification, “I might as well regard the difficulty as a flat boat and do my best to go through with it, and at the same time take it lightly.” I ran into something encouraging after I developed this thought.

I dialed a number and spoke with a police officer in Guizhou. I could tell he had not understood the truth, but a part of him seemed to be looking for answers to his questions. He asked me many questions, all of which were actually legitimate and relevant.

I believe that as long as someone asks questions, he or she does not want to be fooled by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). I will then make every effort to clarify the truth to him or her. I do not seek quick results, therefore as long as the person can accept my points, and the conversation can go on, I will try to wake up the good in the person.

I said as soon as he picked up the phone, “I’m calling from overseas. We learned from the Internet that a 70-year-old Falun Gong practitioner in Guiyang was illegally sentenced to prison for distributing truth-clarification materials. Do you know that in a society governed by the rule of law, you can’t arrest people at will?”

He avoided talking about it and changed the subject, “China’s economic development is growing by leaps and bounds.” I said, “The fact that China’s economy is doing well is the result of the hard work of the Chinese people, and it has nothing to do with the CCP. The CCP contributes nothing, it only monitors and cracks down on people’s freedom of thought.”

He said, “Do you still remember the life-destroying old society? The CCP has made the Chinese people stand up.”

I sighed, “It appears you don’t know the true modern and contemporary history. What you described was the history that the CCP tampered with.

“The victory of the eight-year anti-Japanese war was entirely due to the National Army led by Chiang Kai-shek. The National Army lost more than 3 million soldiers. How many did the CCP lose? Almost every general of the Kuomintang personally fought against the Japanese and over 200 generals died in battle. How many CCP generals died?”

I continued as he was silent, “Do you know why the CCP did not suffer many losses? Because Mao’s policy was to let the National Army fight the Japanese and let the CCP refrain from sending troops, secretly preserving and growing the CCP’s army and eventually benefiting from the war. So the CCP is the real traitor to the country.”

He said, “Then why did Chiang Kai-shek still lose to the CCP?”

I said, “Chiang Kai-shek lost the civil war to the CCP not because the CCP had any remarkable tactics, but because the Nationalist Army had been greatly weakened by suffering heavy losses to the army, navy, and air force during the eight-year anti-japan war, whereas the CCP stole power by using secret agents and shameful tactics.”

I appreciated how important it was to grasp truth-clarification materials and use them effectively. I could sense he was thinking.

He said, “If you practice Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, why do you spread these things to subvert the communist rule?”

I said, “Forbearance is a virtue, but it does not equate to indulging the CCP’s spreading of lies to fool people. Everyone has the right to seek the truth. The CCTV network has broadcast so many programs to slander Falun Gong (also called Falun Dafa). All of those were recorded. Falun Dafa has no interest in political power.”

He then asked, “What about those homicides and suicides?” I said, “Think about it, the CCP has been smearing Falun Gong with impunity, but why does it never dare to let people see for themselves what Falun Gong’s books say? Falun Gong’s writings absolutely prohibit suicide and murder.”

He did not refute me, so I took the opportunity to explain the Tiananmen “self-immolation.” He then asked, “Isn’t it true that Falun Gong practitioners do not take medicine or see doctors?”

I said, “You can read Falun Gong books by circumventing the firewall—Falun Gong books do not say that one won’t get sick or die once one practices Falun Gong. Look at the problem from another angle, a person’s choice of hospital or qigong treatment is never something a government should meddle with.”

I always believed people’s knowing side can learn from history, so I talked about World War II.

He thought the Axis powers were tried because they lost the war. I said, “You are trying to say losers are always in the wrong. In my view, the Axis powers represented evil and were against God’s will, and they were bound to lose. The Allies represented justice, so they naturally won. We must look at things from the perspective of good and evil instead of who is more powerful.”

He asked me, “Who will be trying the CCP in a future global trial?”

I didn’t have an answer to that, so I changed the angle and said, “The Nazis were tried by the International Tribunal at Nuremberg after World War II. The CCP will be tried, and it will avoid blame for those it has used, because its usual tactics are to kill the donkey when the grinding is done.

“In Pingtang County, Guizhou Province, there is a hidden character stone with six large naturally-formed characters on it, that read, ‘Chinese Communist Party Will Perish’. You should see for yourself in person or search Baidu for a picture. Seize the time, because time waits for no man.”

I wanted him to understand that what goes around comes around, so I talked about the Wuhan pandemic. He said, “If the pandemic was directed at the Communist Party, then why were so many U.S. citizens infected?”

I said, “That’s an excellent question. The CCP has heavily infiltrated the Western free societies for decades by giving out money and installing agents. Yes, there are quite a few people in free societies who are also friends with the CCP and are therefore implicated. In the United States, the death rate in areas where socialism is fervently practiced is one to two times higher than areas where tradition and faith are valued.”

He asked, “Did you people make up the CCP’s live organ harvesting?”

I said, “Are you the only person in the entire world who doesn’t know that China has the largest organ transplant market? Just the word ‘market’ is itself illegal. Organ transplants can only be done through a voluntary organ donation system, with a fairly long waiting period. But the waiting period in China is extremely short, so what does that tell you?” He listened quietly.

The phone call lasted 36 minutes. I was grateful for Master’s encouragement. I will do even better next time. I don’t know if he will finally be saved, but after all, he was brave enough to listen to the truth and ask questions, much better than those who are scared and numb. His knowing side wants to be saved.

I sent forth righteous thoughts later on and added the thought, “Completely eliminate all obstacles in making truth-clarification phone calls.” As long as the person has a thread of a good thought, I will clarify the truth to him/her thoroughly.

After this phone call, I was surprised to find that my long-standing coughing symptoms were much lessened. It turned out that my previous physical discomfort occurred because I had been too afraid and too lazy to target my weaknesses in truth-clarification for quite a few years.

Looking inward is a powerful tool Master gave us, and this allowed me to realize the key issues once again. I was patient in answering every question the police officer asked, because I know that the process is important.

I typically dial the phone numbers found in the persecution cases published on the Minghui website, so I read the experience sharing articles often, which strengthens my righteous thoughts.

I read a case in which a police officer who was specialized in transforming practitioners was extremely cruel and merciless, so I called him. To my surprise, he answered both times. In the first phone call I clarified the truth to him in my own words. In the second call, I read him a truth-clarification script. I asked him, “I have shared a lot of information with you. Please let me know if you have questions.”

He said, “Thank you for telling me so much. Please give me time to think.”

The police officer at least didn’t come across as mean on the phone. After all, truth is powerful and he was somewhat afraid, and the practitioners he had tortured might have clarified the truth to him already. He listened to me for about 18 minutes, which tells me that he still wanted to know the facts. This experience became the motivation for me to make truth-clarification phone calls to save people.

Cultivation practice requires one to maintain the same enthusiasm, and not to feel that one is so familiar with something that one doesn’t want to do it anymore.

A police station chief in Heilongjiang Province said, “The Communist Party pays my salary.” I said, “The CCP is robbing you of your money. You would have more money without it. After every political movement, the Party looks for scapegoats so it can kill the donkey.” The chief wanted to run away, and said, “I have to go.” I said, “Please remember the truth about Falun Gong and stop following the CCP blindly.” He said, “Okay, I’ll remember.”

After each phone call, I was full of energy and eager to study the Fa, creating a virtuous cycle. I heard that many fellow practitioners are more focused on speedily persuading people to quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations when they call.

I think truth-clarification about Dafa and persuading people to withdraw from the CCP organizations can be done at the same time, and the sentient being’s attitude towards Dafa comes first. If we pursue a goal by numbers and results, the effect may not necessarily be good, because the process is the key. When my way is different from others, I can endure the loneliness and improve my xinxing.

I remember in a Chinese class in middle school, the teacher wrote on the blackboard,

“I look towards the direction of my hometown as twilight starts to fade,A haze begins to mist over the river engulfing me in a homesick state.”

I thought the poet was missing his homeland. Now that I have cultivated, I understand that the poet was thinking of his hometown in Heaven.

May each one of us Dafa practitioners cultivate ourselves well, save more sentient beings, and return to our Heavenly home fully loaded.
