[PureInsight.org] My wife and I are young Dafa practitioners. We got married two years ago. Right after our marriage, we began to study the Fa together every day. At that time, I was not quite sure how to clarify the truth about Falun Gong to the public, but my wife had been clarifying the truth in China for some time before she came to Canada. She urged me to go to some busy areas to do truth clarification. I was hesitant and gave many excuses, but as my wife and I kept studying the Fa and exchanging our thoughts, I was eventually moved and started to clarify the truth to the public at the Taigu Shopping Mall.
The Taigu Shopping Mall is said to be the largest Chinese indoor shopping center in North America. The traffic of people there is simply enormous every day, and most of them are Chinese. Taigu is thus like a treasure trove for truth clarification. Both my wife and I work during the day, so we can only go out to do truth clarification over the weekends. However, since more people show up at the Taigu Shopping Mall on the weekends, it is relatively easy for us to find people to talk to. My wife and I would go to different places. I usually stayed outside the mall and sometimes went inside. Whenever I ran into a Chinese person, I would approach him or her and start to talk about the “three withdrawals from CCP” and other things. Generally speaking, those who stopped to listen to me did agree to do the “three withdrawals” right then and there. There were those who did not show any interest at first, but after talking a little longer, they would eventually agree. There have also been people who became angry and started fights. I would then just leave them alone.
One time, I ran into a middle-aged man and started to talk to him about the “three withdrawals”. The man became very frightened and threatened me, “I really want to hit you.” I replied calmly, “Ok, bring it on.” The man immediately rushed towards me and grabbed my collar, but as soon as he touched my clothes, he seemed to collapse right away. He then turned around and left. I realized right then the power of Dafa practitioners’ pure energy field; such strong power dissolves any evil. It is just like what Master says in Zhuan Falun, “Buddha’s light shines everywhere, propriety and righteousness harmonize everything.”
I had also had a similar experience with an old lady before. I had already talked to this lady a couple of times, but every time she would call me names and forcefully insult me. When I saw her the last time, I still wanted to give her a chance, so I decided to approach her and talk to her again. I did not know that the lady was so afraid of me. She kicked me when I was not paying attention and quickly ran away, while still muttering ugly words. I shook my head and said to myself, “Helpless; really helpless.” Later, I shared my experiences with fellow practitioners. We agreed that we did not have to forcefully clarify the truth to those who were not willing to listen to us. We did not want to waste our time, but instead use it well to save more predestined people.
In Explaining the Fa During the 2003 Lantern Festival at the U.S. West Fa Conference, Master says, “ But in saving sentient beings, no matter what you do, still there will be a group of beings that can't be saved. In clarifying the truth, making calls to China, and on the Internet, you will run into people that can't be saved at all. But don't be affected at all by it, and save as many as possible of those who can be saved.”
Next, I would like to share with everyone some impressive stories.
Once, I ran into a lady at the Taigu parking lot. I approached her and asked whether she knew anything about the “three withdrawals” campaign. The lady said that she did not. I then started to explain why one should quit all CCP memberships. The lady said, “Well, I am neither a CCP member nor a Young League member. I have nothing to quit.” “Did you join the Little League?” I asked. “Yes, but that was when I was a kid,” she replied. I then said, “Well as kids, we did not know what was going on, so we just raised our fist and made a vow to dedicate ourselves to the CCP, but we have to negate such vows now. The CCP will get punished for what it has done; we do not want to become scapegoats for it.” The lady agreed. I then continued to tell her about the Tiananmen Self-Immolation incident and about the forced live organ harvesting that is being performed on Falun Gong practitioners in China. The lady nodded and without hesitation decided to quit her Little League membership. She then thanked me and said that she would like to learn more about Falun Dafa, so I told her about the beauty of the practice and how it has spread around the world. In the end, the lady asked me, “How can I learn Falun Gong?” I told her about the Tianti bookstore in Taigu, where she could get free materials on how to learn the practice. The lady was very interested, so I led her to the bookstore and showed her some of the Falun Gong websites. She was very happy and promised that she would spend time learning more about Falun Gong. I felt so happy to see her with such a big smile on her face. I knew that a sentient being was being saved. Later I ran into this lady again on Christmas day. She brought her daughter with her that day, and I helped her daughter do the “three withdrawals”. I understood that Master does not want to leave any predestined person behind. Master arranges all those predestined people to come to see us so that they can be saved.
One day, I had just finished buying some groceries and was walking home when I saw an old Chinese lady across the street from me. I walked over to talk to her. She seemed to understand me and kept her eyes on me as if she knew me. I approached her and learned that she was from my hometown and had just arrived in Canada to visit her family. I talked with her about the three withdrawals, the Tiananmen Self-Immolation incident and the criminal acts of live organ harvesting that are being carried out by the CCP regime. I said that the whole world is asking China to immediately stop committing such inhumane crimes. Chinese people should quit their CCP memberships in order to stay safe; no one should sacrifice oneself for the CCP. The lady understood what I was talking about and immediately agreed to do the “three withdrawals”. A few weeks later, I saw this old lady again with her daughter. After exchanging a few words, the young lady also agreed to do the “three withdrawals”.
Master said in Teaching the Fa at the Fa Conference at the US Capital, “People with predestined relationships and those who can be saved can be made to--made to by Master's Law Bodies, righteous gods, or the immense field that Dafa has formed in the world--appear right before you in any of a range of settings, providing them with a chance to learn the truth.”
During the holiday, Taigu Shopping Center is even more popular. Many shops close over the holidays during Christmas, New Year, etc., but Taigu stays open every day all year round. So many people flock to Taigu during the holidays, making Taigu a unique place to do truth clarification. On Christmas Day, 2015, I went to Taigu and was really surprised to see so many people there. The whole shopping mall was completely crowded. I also noticed that there were many tourists. I ran into a young man who had just arrived from the west coast of USA. He said to me, “There are too many people inside, so I could not find a seat. I am afraid I will have to sit inside my car to eat.” I talked to him a little more and he agreed to do the “three withdrawals” right away. I then saw a car with its windows down. I approached the car and talked to the man inside who said that he had come from Montreal. After exchanging only a few words, I helped him quit his CCP memberships. Afterwards, I went inside the mall and talked to anyone I came across, and those who stopped to listen to me all agreed to do the “three withdrawals”. Usually, I talk to those people who stand around chatting to each other or those who sit on a bench resting or casually window-shopping as such people are not in a hurry. They have time, so they are more willing to listen to me. There are exceptions of course. One day, I saw a man walk by the Taigu exhibition center. I rushed towards him and followed him. The man hastened his steps when he noticed me approaching, but I still wanted to catch up with him. He must have seen my determination and he eventually slowed down to wait for me. We then walked and talked together all the way to the Taigu exit, and in the end he agreed to do the “three withdrawals”. So, we should react well to different situations. We can always achieve good results with righteous thoughts and actions.
It has been two years since I started to clarify the truth to the public. I have been cultivating myself while saving sentient beings. I have developed righteous thoughts to save more sentient beings and have sincere hopes for those predestined people to be saved. I have gained wisdom to deal with difficulties. My whole body feels immersed in such strong power that is generated from righteous thoughts, which has made it possible for me to go through this final period of cultivation. I know time is most precious now. I want to thank Master for arranging me to save more people at full speed in the past six months. My plan is to go anywhere where one can meet more Chinese people—it could be Taigu, a tourist spot somewhere, a Chinese grocery store, a department store, the Chinese consulate building, Chinatown, etc. I want to cherish every moment of every day to save as many people as possible.
In Fa Teaching at the 2013 Western U.S. Fa Conference, Master said, “The time has been extended for your sake, and for the sake of sentient beings.”
Master has extended the time for us, so during this extended time, how should we treat our own cultivation? How should we treat those sentient beings? Shouldn’t we cherish the time we have right now much more? Shouldn’t we cherish such extended time more than our own lives? I feel all those predestined people are waiting to be saved. For me, I do not want to miss a single chance in my daily life to save as many people as possible. It is up to the people to decide whether they want to listen to me, but I will do it anyway. I do not want to miss this last chance that Master has planned for me.
