Truth Clarification Is Inseparable from One’s Personal Cultivation

A Dafa Disciple in Taiwan

PureInsight | February 8, 2014

[] I am a retired government clerk, and I have practiced Falun Dafa for over two years now. Every morning, I do the exercises, and around noon, I study the Fa with some other fellow practitioners. We study Zhuan Falun as well as all the new articles. I use my computer to alert me to send forth righteous thoughts; however, I often miss the early morning (5:55 AM) and later evening (11:55PM) global SFRT times. I realize that this is my weakness, and I hope I will find time to correct myself. I have also started to recite the poems from Hong Yin. From 3 PM to 6 PM every afternoon, I do some online truth clarification work. I want to do my part as a Dafa practitioner to fulfill my historical mission on earth.

When I first started doing the online truth clarification work, I did not do a good job because I did not study the Fa well. I was also a little bit afraid of doing the work, and I had many human notions. However, I tried to clarify the truth about Falun Gong and the persecution on Falun Gong, but people did not seem to accept me readily. When I tried to send truth clarification documents to my online friends, I usually did not get any response. Some online friends would even delete me from their friends list. I sometimes developed back or shoulder pains, and I felt alternating waves of cold and hot. Later on, I realized what went wrong with me after I studied Master’s following teaching: “But consider what I have said: if whatever it is that you’re doing is not grounded in the Fa, if it does not have the power of the Fa, and if you haven’t cultivated well, you will not do those things well. Although you might have done whatever it is, it has not achieved any effect and simply cannot save people, for you are ineffective in dissolving evil factors” (Dafa Disciples Must Study the Fa – Fa Teaching Given at the 2011 Washington DC Metro Area Fa Conference).

Later, I decided to study the Fa more seriously and to send forth righteous thoughts more often. It suddenly occurred to me that whenever my thoughts were righteous, evil would collapse right away, the old forces would become ineffective in their interferences, and the overall environment would start to improve. My online friends became eager to accept my truth clarification discussions, and many of them were more than happy to quit the CCP afterwards. I came to realize that the key to doing a better job clarifying the truth to the public was to study the Fa well. Only after I had studied the Fa well enough could I save those predestined sentient beings. My experiences have reaffirmed what Master has mentioned: “That is why Fa-study is still the most, most important thing—it is the fundamental guarantee for all that you are to do.” (Dafa Disciples Must Study the Fa – Fa Teaching Given at the 2011 Washington DC Metro Area Fa Conference).

After I joined the online truth clarification group, I felt that it was very convenient for spreading the truth to the public at large. As long as there was a computer that could connect to the internet, one could do the truth clarification work almost any time. We could also transfer truth clarification documents and other materials such as movies, videos and other multimedia information. We could do online video chat, live voice chat, etc. Such truth clarification work is not only very effective, but they are also very powerful and comprehensive. Every Dafa practitioner can do the work. I have gathered many documents from other fellow practitioners who have done a good job in clarifying the truth to the public, and I have tried to use my own unique way to spread the information around. I have noticed that it has really helped me quite a lot. I have also shared my experiences with other fellow practitioners and passed my own documents to them. Many fellow practitioners have been doing the truth clarification work with me, and we often exchange our experiences. We have created an environment where every one of us is trying to do his or her best in spreading the truth to the public.

Once I ran into an online friend who seemed to have developed a deep misunderstanding towards Master; he appeared to be very emotional. I felt very sorry for him. I sent this person a software program that he could use to reach the outside world. I hoped that this person could learn the truth and open his mind. I also hoped that this person could gradually become decontaminated from the doctrines that he had been taught by the evil CCP’s one-sided propaganda machine in China.

Just as what Master has told us before, nothing we run into is accidental; whenever we run into problems, we need to look inwards. I realized that the reason I ran into that online friend was that I had a strong emotional attachment to my mother. My mother lives alone and her mind is not very clear now. My brothers live in some other parts of Taiwan, and they don’t come home that often to see my mother. I decided to take my mother to live with my family. In the meantime, I had also asked my brothers to come visit my mother more often. However, my brothers would always tell me that they were too busy with work or that they had to do certain volunteering work, etc. I became a little frustrated and uttered some nasty words to my brothers in the end. I took a very long time to recover from the anger, and every time I talked to my brothers I became bitter again. My frustration continued, and I found it very difficult to detach my emotions towards my relatives. As time went by, I gradually felt better and better in dealing with my relatives with regards to my mother, and I noticed that I was far less attached to human emotions. I realized that as a cultivator, one must detach from one’s emotions in the process of one’s cultivation. This is just like what Master has mentioned: “As a cultivator, if you can’t let go of emotion, all of your behavior is human behavior. Valuing emotion is in fact defending emotion. And in that case, you are just an ordinary human being. If you can let go of it, then you are no longer a part of it, and are a god. That’s the principle.”(Teaching the Fa at the Fa Conference in Australia).

Once I ran into another online friend whom I had asked to quit the CCP membership. That person agreed. I told him that he could pick a nickname for himself to quit the CCP, and he said he wanted to use “Devil God” for his nickname. I told him that his nickname was not a good choice and asked him to pick another one. However, he insisted upon using this nickname. I then told the man that his decision to quit the CCP was a serious one; Heaven would record his decision so he had better choose a more proper name for himself. I then read the phrase, “Indulging in demonic nature, apart from the divine; After entering Hell, there’s no chance of getting out,” from the poem “Lacking All Restraint” to him, and told him that a demon would never become a god, that “demon” was a curse word for a person to go to hell. That person then changed his mind, said he did not want to go to hell, and picked another nickname for himself. From this incident, I came to realize that once we have studied the Fa well and once we can recite the poems from Hong Yin, Master will give us wisdom at the right moment. We can then spread the truth more wisely.

Usually after I help an online friend quit the CCP, I then ask the friend whether or not he or she is able to access the news outside China. I would tell the friend that I have software programs that can help him or her access all news outside China. In this way, I have helped many Chinese people learn the news from all around the world.

Throughout my online truth clarification, I have sent many truth documents to the Chinese people. These documents include materials such as “the Nine Commentaries on CCP”, “Truth of Tiananmen Self Immolation Case”, “Live Organ Harvesting”, etc. Many Chinese people have learned of the truth about Falun Gong and about the ongoing persecution on Falun Gong. They have also learned that right now, there are many other Chinese people who have stood up against the CCP regime and demanded that the government stop the persecution against Falun Gong. I have also learned from my online truth clarification work that many Chinese people are waking up; they are ready and willing to accept the information that we present to them. I only hope that more and more people will wake up to the truth of Falun Gong.
