我也认识到打电话救人的重要性，因为这是直接救人，而且是明明白白的救人，很多面对面讲真相时间都很仓促，很难讲透，而且绝大多数被蒙骗的需要救度的众生在中国没有出国的机会。国内的同 修都是冒着生命危险在救人。我来到了自由社会，只是少休息点就能救更 多的人，还有什么做不到的呢？
可营救电话不同，打营救电话有时看不到一点希望，打营救电话的同修又较少，对方一般都是公检法部门，骂人的，讽刺的，甚至有的说你回来和我说，什么情况都能遇到。可是想想当年我被抓时，海外的同修包括很多澳洲同修都营救过我。平时每当我打开明慧网都能看到很多同修被绑架的消息，而且和我在马三家一起非法关押过的两位同修在劳教期未满就又分别被判刑12年和10年，和我一同被抓的最近被迫 害的生命垂危。看到这些消息我的心都在流血，我有义不容辞的责任去营救国内被迫害的同修。师父说：“他的事就是你的事，你的事就 是他的事。”（《二零零二年华盛顿DC法会讲法》）我要突破自己，既然师父把我安排在澳洲，就有我的使命在这，我要完成好我的使命。大法需要我做什么，我就做 什么，不再执于自我。
师父在《二十年讲法》中说：“恶人的表现，那是邪恶在后面撑着干的。你们老是把眼睛看在表面上这个人怎么这么坏呀，这个人怎么这么邪恶呀、这个恶警怎么怎么样啊，这个人表现的怎么这么没理性啊，总是盯在表面这儿。我一直跟你们讲，说人这个皮囊，就象一件衣服一样，真正控制人体的是元神，主元神也好，副元神也 好，而且能控制人的还不只是元神，各种有了灵气的都能控制人。对大法弟子行恶的不在表面上。你把背后那些因素解决了，你看看表 面上啥样？人没背后的因素你告诉他干啥他就干啥。你是修炼人，你是有能力的，你是走在神的路上的生命，他是 一个常人，他是没有力量的。所以眼睛不要老是盯在表面上的人，解决那些背后的因素才能根本上解决问题，才能使形势发生变化，才能使人发生变化。 ”
Gratitude for Master’s grace, melt into the righteous Fa, increase righteous thoughts, and save sentient beings
Greetings Venerable Master!
Greetings fellow practitioners!
I obtained the Fa in 1997, and have stumbled through many storms in my 15 years of cultivation, and have endured my hardship and experienced joys. I would like to share my cultivation experiences with Master and the fellow practitioners. If there is anything inappropriate, please point it out.
Detour after detour, one thought determines your path
In 2005, I was arrested by the evils for posting truth clarification materials, and was illegally detained for 15 days. In 2009, I was illegally kidnapped and taken to the Masanjia labour camp and was illegally detailed for two years. I shudder when I think back to my experience at Masanjia. We ate mouldy bread, the vegetables in the soup were rotten and there were bugs and flies floating around in our soup. In winter, it was so cold that the walls were covered in frost, and our ears would freeze overnight while sleeping. In summer, it was stifling hot. We worked as slave labour by day, and when we returned at night swarms of mosquitoes would fly towards us, you could stick out your hand and grab a handful. We could only have one glass of warm water a day, and we could only shower with cold water regardless of whether it was summer or winter. “I would say that the physical pains are the easiest thing to endure, as they can be overcome by biting the teeth tightly” [Zhuan Falun, Lecture Four]
The worst was the constant brainwashing and the physical torturing that we suffered, and being unable to study the Fa – that was the most painful. Later on, every practitioner tried reciting the Fa, and we would send righteous thoughts on the hour, we would constantly remind each other – just one look was enough to do so. At night we would lie in bed reciting the Fa and sending forwth righteous thoughts. Before going to bed, we would drink lots of cold water so that we would constantly have to get up and go to the toilet, which meant we would not sleep through the hourly righteous thoughts. My yearning for the Fa and steadfast faith in the Fa allowed me to survive that torturous time. Two things occurred in those two years that had the greatest impact on me. The first was the fact that a practitioner that was well-known to the evil was kidnapped but was able to leave on the first night, yet a practitioner like me that was not at all well known to the evil was kidnapped and sent to labour camp. I saw the difference between our cultivation states.
The second incident was that when the police gave me a list of things that they had taken away from my home , I saw my computer in the list and I was worried that they might be able to find out that I had accessed Minghui website. I was so worried that I asked a non practitioner that was in my cell. An older age fellow practitioner overheard me and said to me: “you keep thinking using human notions”, but I still did not enlighten in that issue. This practitioner arriving at Masanjia and then was sent home because she didn’t pass the health checkup. I was so happy for when I heard the news, and looked within and saw the distance in our cultivation. Being righteous is not something just by saying it, it needed to be steadfastly and consistently cultivated. Otherwise when hardship descends we would be directionless and won’t have any righteous thought of believing in Master.
Master said in "The 20th Anniversary Fa Teaching": “As I have always said, as Dafa disciples your historic missions are simply huge, with you shouldering the responsibility of saving sentient beings. So for sure there is a path that you will be able to walk through to completion. It is a path that has to meet the requirements, and only that way will the sentient beings of the cosmos admire you and not be able to interfere; will your path be free of problems; and will your journey go smoothly”.
1. Gratitude for Master’s grace, saving sentient beings overseas
released from Masanjia and
returned home in March 2011, and within a
month under Master’s protection, I was fortunate enough to
When I first arrived, I lived in a practitioner’s home, she was one of the coordinators for the clarify the truth by telephone group. She would often use the RTC platform to make calls to China, and would allow me to listen on her conversations. Gradually I took part on the calls too. One day I was asked to fill in for another practitioner so I nervously logged on. I told another practitioner that it was my first time taking part in the phone call project and she encouraged me and told me not to be afraid, and that they would support me with righteous thoughts. I was very nervous when I spoke. It was Master who was encouraging me because the first person whom I spoke to agreed to quit the CCP. I enlightened that as long as my xinxing had reached the level, Master will place those who have predestined relationships with me before me. As I made more and more calls, I got better and better. As long as the person listened, I would talk to them from different angles until I was able to save the sentient being.
female university student answered the phone. She
said to me:
“People stopped practicing Falun
Gong a long
time ago” and she didn’t know that such a severe
taking place. So I started by telling her about my
experience, and told her how
the self-immolation incident on Tiananmen square was
fabricated, and how Dafa is
being practiced in over 114 countries and regions, told
her about the Communist Party’s history of killing, and
for those who did not quit the Party. At the end she
understood the truth
completely and agreed to quit – and asked for the software
through the internet firewall so that she could help her
family to quit the CCP too. Some
sentient beings would eagerly agree to quit as soon as you
told them about
quitting the CCP, it was like they had been waiting all
this time to be saved.
Sometimes it can be fellow practitioners answering the
phone. Once when the person on
other end answered the phone, I told them that I was a
volunteer of the Quit
CCP centre, and asked if she had heard about quitting the
CCP? The person
said with meaning: yes we are walking along the same path,
I am also telling people
to quit, thank you for calling me and let’s be diligent
together. I told
her to be careful and to watch out for her safety. I
recognize the importance
of saving people through calling them because this is
saving them directly.
Sometimes when we meet people face to face it is done so
in a rush and we do
not necessarily have time to talk to them in detail. Also
with predestined relationships are in
only have to do well
myself, I also have to encourage more practitioners to
participate in making phone
3. Opposing the persecution, helping fellow practitioners
Because we were short of hands, practitioners asked me to coordinate the efforts in helping fellow practitioners in China. I was reluctant at first because my personality is quite introverted. I don’t like to talk and I don’t like attention.
I have listened to practitioners ring to rescue fellow practitioners before. Ringing to get people to quit the CCP, and ringing to rescue practitioners is different. When you ring to ask people to quit CCP, the other side may hang up but they won’t yell.
to get people to quit CCP
to me is very easy, every time
I call I can see the
result. The number of people quitting is also a reflection
of my cultivation
state. However the phone calls to
rescue practitioners is
different, when I call sometimes I couldn’t see any hope,
practitioners that taking part in this is relatively few.
The people that answering the
phone are often abusive and some even ask that I go back
when I think back to the time when I
was arrested by the CCP, many practitioners from overseas
including Australian practitioners had made
calls in helping rescuing me. Every time I open up Minghui
net, there are stories about
practitioners being illegally kidnapped and detained. Also
that were detained at the same as me when I was in Masanjia
were resentenced to 12 years
and 10 years again,
respectively. Another practitioner that was arrested at
the same time as me was
tortured to near death. When I read about these cases, my
heart was bleeding,
and I knew that I have a responsibility to help these
fellow practitioners who
are being persecuted in mainland

[Teaching the Fa at the
Washington, D.C. Fa
Conference, 2002]. I need to break through my
selfishness. Since Master has arranged for me to come to
When I first started the phone calls, there were times when the other side would refuse to listen, or be abusive or would be arguing with what I said. After two and a half hours, I felt I was emotionally affected and I felt myself being angry. Once, it was a Canadian practitioner’s turn to call. When she spoke the other person kept yelling and abusing. But that practitioner kept going like she didn’t hear the abusive words. When the other person hang up, she called again and the person again yelled at her. It kept on going like this until the person stopped yelling and asked her: “I have been insulting you, can’t you hear me?” The practitioner answered, it doesn’t matter that you have been insulting me, the most important thing is for your true self to hear what I am saying and be saved. The person immediately felt the practitioner’s compassion and accepted the truth. From this incident I saw that the compassion in me was not nearly enough, the people that we call when we trying helping practitioners might also the people that need to be saved, we also need to save those who persecuting Dafa practitioners.
Master said: “The evil people act as they do because evil is propping them up from behind. Yet you always look at how bad that person at the surface is, how evil he is, how that evil policeman is so this or that, or how somebody’s behavior is just so irrational. You always fix your gaze on the surface. I’ve always told you that this human body here is just like an article of clothing, and that what really controls a person is his soul—be it his master soul or subordinate soul. And it’s not just the souls that can control a person. There are all sorts of intelligent entities that can also control a human being. It is not the beings at the surface that are doing evil to Dafa disciples. When you have addressed the factors behind the scenes, take another look at the surface and see what happens. With no factors at work behind the scenes, a human being will do whatever you tell him to. You are a cultivator and someone with abilities, and you are a being who is walking the path to divinity. Whereas that being is an ordinary human, and he is powerless. So you shouldn’t always fix your gaze on the person at the surface. Only when you deal with the factors behind the scenes will you manage to resolve the problem at the root. Only then will you cause a given situation, or that person, to change” [20th Anniversary Fa Teaching]
In the process of making phone calls, I have rectified myself and have cultivated my own xinxing and have broken through my selfishness, and have raised my xinxing by a lot. However, I still have not done well enough, occasionally I would feel the attachment of comfort coming through. I don’t do as well as other veteran practitioners in the phone call project who can do it with ease, so I need to work harder in that respect. I know in my heart that whatever I do is under Master’s watch. All I need to do is saying a few words but it is Master that is really saving these people. When sentient beings understand and quit the CCP, I will quietly thank Master in my heart. Master has told us to hurry up and save them, lose no time in saving them, there are still so many sentient beings that do not understand the truth. In the limited time that we have left, we need to work harder, do the three things well, and save more sentient beings, so that we are not unworthy of the title of Fa rectification period Dafa disciples.
Thank you Master, thank you fellow practitioners.
