RTC平台打电话中实修

To Cultivate Solidly in the RTC Project

Helen Xin

慈悲伟大的师父好!

Greetings to great and benevolent Master!

 

各位同修大家好!

Greetings to fellow practitioners!

 

师父说:“从表面上看,大法弟子是在反迫害,实质上大法弟子最大的责任就是救度众生,这也是证实法的真实体现。对大法弟子、对中国民众的迫害是恶党在中国大陆发起的,所以大家要针对的就是中国大陆,也就是针对中国大陆的人。” (《二零零五年旧金山法会讲法》)

Master said: “Superficially speaking, what Dafa disciples are doing is counteracting the persecution, but in reality your greatest duty is to save sentient beings, and that is the true embodiment of validating the Fa. The persecution that has been perpetrated upon Dafa disciples and upon the people of China was launched by the wicked Party in mainland China, and this means that you need to focus on mainland China, to focus on the people of mainland China.”( Teaching the Fa in San Francisco, 2005 )

 

今年年初神韵在布里斯本的演出结束后,在师父的点化和安排下,我参加了向大陆民众讲真相劝三退的项目。6月初,又加入到刚成立不久的昆士兰RTC电话小组。在以前,也听过和看过RTC平台上同修的交流。通过这几个月时间的参与,切身感受到修在其中的可贵。

After Shen Yun concluded in Brisbane at the beginning of this year, I joined the newly formed Queensland RTC phone group. I had heard and read some of the practitioner’s sharings from the RTC team before, but didn’t get involved. This project’s purpose is to convince the Mainland Chinese people to renounce the CCP. I have now been part of the RTC team for some three months, and I truly feel the preciousness of this cultivation environment.

 

上到平台,印象最深的就是每天拨打电话以后的半个小时的交流。来自全球各地的大法弟子在这个时段互相交流切磋拨打电话中遇到的众生的各种情况,以及如何应对、修炼中的体悟、遇到的关、悟到的法理等等。每天听到这些交流受益匪浅。

A most inspiring part on the platform for me is the half-hour practitioner sharings after doing these calls every night. Dafa disciples from around the world share their different phone call experiences; how to deal with these experiences, how to do better, the relative understanding of the experiences within their cultivation, the tests along the path, and their enlightenments, etc. I benefit greatly from these sharings.

 

刚开始时,在师父慈悲的加持和鼓励下,拨打挺顺利,每天也能劝退一些。后来,劝退人数减少。当时,看到周围的同修都在不断的向内找,而自己却被一个观念障碍着,觉的这一向内找就是正念不足,应该什么也别想,接着打。直到一天晚上,在平台上听一位欧洲同修交流,大意是,在拨打电话时,心很纯净,甚至感觉好像进入另外空间了。当时很受触动,是呀,自己的心达到这么纯净了吗?再往深处找一找,因为最近参与的这些项目,有机会每周和同修面对面交流一次,而自己没有把它视为提高的机会,而是一股脑儿的带着显示心,欢喜心往同修那里灌,表面上听起来是自己如何过关突破,实际上都是在或多或少的执著心的指使下给同修灌这些不好的物质。师父在《转法轮》中说: “我们讲修口,是常人中的那些放不下的名利与修炼者在社会实际工作中没有关系的;或者同门弟子中互相之间扯一些没用的;或者由于执著心指使显示自己的;或者道听途说传一些小道消息的;或者对社会上其它一些事情谈论起来很兴奋、很愿意说的,我想这都是常人的执著心。在这些方面我觉的我们应该把口修一修,这是我们讲的修口。”

In the beginning, the calls went smoothly under Master’s reinforcing and encouragement. I was able to successfully convince a few Chinese people every day to quit the CCP, though the numbers began to drop. At this point, I saw fellow practitioners around me looking within to improve them. Whereas I was blocked by a notion and didn’t look within myself to see why the numbers dropped. I felt I had enough strong righteous thoughts at the time and should keep making calls. Then one night soon after, a European practitioner shared her phone call experiences. My brief understanding of what she shared was that her heart was so pure that she felt she was in another dimension when calling. I was really touched. That was it! Was my heart that pure? Digging further, I realised that being involved in these projects, I had been given the chance to share with fellow practitioners face-to-face once a week. I didn’t consider these sharings as the chance to improve myself, but instead I poured my attachments of showing off and zealotry onto other fellow practitioners. Master taught us in Zhuan Falun: “We talk about minding speech, it’s about the ordinary things like reputation and profit that you can’t let go of and that aren’t related to a cultivator’s actual work in the world; it’s about disciples in the same practice talking about pointless things with each other; it’s about stuff that’s done to show off because of attachments; about spreading rumors heard through the grapevine; and talking about other things in the world with a lot of excitement and interest. I think these are all attachments an ordinary person has, and we should mind our speech when it comes to these things.”

 

有一天晚上,刚开始拨打电话很顺利,很快就退了几个众生。当时,心中欢喜,一想,这么快就退了几个,那今天晚上会退的不错吧!结果,这念头一出,后面竟一个没退。我悟到,修炼就是严肃的,大法弟子的一思一念一定要在法上!

There was also another night when I successfully convinced a few Chinese people to renounce the CCP in a very short time. Again, I became zealous and thought at this rate I should be able to save quite a few tonight! As a result, after this mindset, I had no success. From this, I understood cultivation is a serious matter. A Dafa disciple’s mind and every thought should be kept on Fa.

 

经过几年的修炼,在目前的层次体会到师父为什么把显示心、妒嫉心、欢喜心特别提出来单讲。比如说,在修炼之初,师父安排去掉我爱干净的心、怕虫子的心等。这类心去掉之后,很少再反复。而显示心、妒嫉心、欢喜心、色欲的心却常常会反复出现,来干扰你。因为旧宇宙是为私的,那么旧宇宙的生命在产生的时候也就带有了私的因素,并随着时间的推移,逐渐发生了变异,大法弟子在层层下走中更是被一层一层不好的物质掩埋了本性,所以在修炼中就要一层一层的再剥下去。“人要返本归真,这才是做人的真正目地”(《转法轮》)。

After a few years of cultivation, I understand on my level why Master talked about showing off, jealousy, and zealotry. For instance, when I started cultivation, Master helped me to get rid of my attachments to being clean, the fear of insects, etc. These attachments didn’t recur much after being removed. However, the attachments of showing off, jealousy, zealotry, lure and lust continued to appear and try to interfere with me. As the old cosmos was based on self, the lives generated from it had the factor of being attached to self, and thus it has warped over time. Dafa disciples were buried with layers of bad matter when they came down. Therefore, it has to be peeled off to go back. “A person should return to his original, true self – that’s actually the true purpose of being human.” (Zhuan Falun)

 

明白了这个道理,在拨打电话发正念时,念动正法口诀:法正乾坤,邪恶全灭。在这一念中,不仅要灭掉阻碍众生了解真相从而得救的一切干扰因素,同时也加上清除自身空间场中的不好的因素,用一颗最纯净的心去救人。师父在《转法轮》中说:“而且你在给他治病时,你和病人形成一个场”。我悟到,我们在讲真相时,和对方也形成一个场,而保持这个场的纯净,就能使众生的本性返出来,能够接受真相。

Being aware of this, during the calling and sending of righteous thoughts, I realised to have the thought not just to eliminate all the interfering factors that stop sentient beings from getting to know the truth, but to also add to clean up the bad factors in my own field, and at all times to use the purest heart to save sentient beings. Master said in Zhuan Falun: “Besides, when you treat another person you and that sick person form one field, and all of his pathogenic qi will come over to your body”. I understand that when we clarify the truth, we form a field as well. Keeping a pure field will help them to find their true self and accept the truth.

 

另一个体会是感受到整体的力量。平台上的同修都知道9张饼的道理。众生听真相就象在吃饼。开始听一两次,不一定愿意退,等到拨打几次,不同的同修在不断的给他们讲真相,到最后,真相听明白了,饼也吃饱了,这时很自然的就退了。我在拨打中也碰到过这样的众生,他说,你们都给我打过几次电话了,电话内容我都知道了。我问他,那您退了吗?他说,还没有。我说,那就帮您退了吧,他就同意了。当然,从更大范围来讲,全球大法弟子都是一个整体,世人都是透过各种各样的渠道获得真相,都是起着相辅相成的作用。每一个声明三退的众生前面,都有大法弟子做了铺垫。

All practitioners’ energy contributes to the whole body. For instance, practitioners on the platform all know about the meaning of 9 pancakes. Sentient beings listening to the truth is just like eating pancakes. The first or second time Chinese people are clarified ‘The Truth’, they may not want to renounce. But after a few times of different practitioners clarifying ‘The Truth’ to them, they become clear and understand, just like having enough pancakes. They then with clarity agree to renounce the CCP. I have spoken with sentient beings like this. One man said: “You have called me many times and I know what you are going to say. I asked him: “Have you renounced yet?” He said: “Not yet.” I said: “Then I will help you renounce it.” He agreed.

On a larger scale, Dafa disciples as a whole body are clarifying ‘The Truth’ via different channels to the world’s people. It is the interactions and foundations that have been laid by Dafa disciples globally that have enabled sentient beings to renounce the CCP.

 

身居海外多年,加上所居住的地区以西人为主,得法时间不长,对现在大陆人的状况已经很陌生了。而自己所参与的几个项目之间却起到了互补的作用。因为参与了播音项目,每周都能看到一些文章,有同修们在做三件事上的体会,神传文化故事,世人见证大法的奇迹,大法洪传,世人签名反迫害等等。这些资讯成为我在讲真相中的重要来源。有一次,碰到一位先生问我,如果他信法轮大法,他做了手术一年多而未见好转的腿伤能不能好。刚好那天白天,我录了一个“大法师父救了我”的故事,因为要录音,需要反复读几遍,对故事的内容印象比较深。这样,我就把这个故事讲给了他,告诉他要诚心默念“法轮大法好”,就能见证佛法的神奇。对方说,“好,我念。”还有一次,碰到一个相信无神论的年轻姑娘,那通电话讲了1小时35分,电话中给她讲了真相并穿插了几个故事和我自己从相信中共的谎言到走入大法的亲身经历,最后她也同意退了,并且答应念9字真言。

I have been living in Australia for many years now, so I have no idea whatsoever what the current Chinese are like. Most of my locals are Westerners. The projects I am involved with interact well with each other. Though I haven’t cultivated for a long time, I am involved in a recording project and every week I see sharings from fellow practitioners, divine cultural stories, people experiencing Dafa miracles, Dafa spreading worldwide, and people signing petitions to stop the persecution, etc. All this information has become important resources with my truth clarification. One time when speaking with a man, he asked me that if he believed in Falun Dafa, could his leg operation recover? I had just prior recorded a story that I had read a few times and remembered very well called “Dafa Shifu saved me.” So I told him this story and also suggested to him to sincerely say “Falun Dafa Hao and Zhen Shan Ren Hao” and he would witness Dafa miracles. He responded: “Yes, I will do it.”

Another time, I came across a young lady who believed the ‘non-God’ theory. We talked about 1 hour and 35 minutes over the phone. I clarified the truth, and shared a few stories of my own experiences from believing the CCP’s lies to starting practising Falun Dafa myself. Eventually, she agreed to renounce and promised to say the nine words.

 

在拨打电话中,不管对方有没有入过党团队,都要讲清真相,因为能了解真相才是生命得救的唯一希望。没有对劝退人数的执著,而是对每一个有缘众生负责的态度。在众生三退后,我都有劝他们帮自己的家里人退,有的当时没在身边,需要回拨。有时回拨几次都说不上话,要么忙线,要么通话中。我没有轻易放弃。有一个电话号码,我不断的回拨,大约在20天以后才拨通,并帮他们退了。

During the RTC platform calling, no matter whether they have joined the CCP or not, I clarify the truth to them so they know ‘The Truth’ and that is their only hope to be saved. Now, I have no attachment to the number being saved, but only being responsible for every predestined sentient being. After the people agree to renounce, I often suggest to them to help their family members renounce the CCP also. Sometimes their family members were away and I needed to follow up. When I called back, the line was either engaged or was not answered. But I didn’t give up. There was one number I kept redialling. I eventually got through after about 20 days. This call was also very successful. All the family members renounced.

 

为了配合拨打电话,我重新调整了学法炼功的时间,把学法改在晚上拨打电话之前,到平台上和大家一起学法。同时,克服了遇到的种种困难。刚开始,家里没有无线上网。说服家人之有后换成无线上网的盒子,这样可以在自己的手提电脑上做大法的事了。接下来,又碰到网络流量不够的困难。我们每月计划的1/3是在高峰时间段,即下午至午夜,而2/3的流量在午夜12点以后至中午12点。而平台上学法和拨打电话的时间都在高峰时间段,再加上家人下载视频,用量也很大。这样一来,常常到月尾几天的时候,用量就没有了。为了增加上网流量,我又买了一部新手机,入了一个带网络流量的月供计划。结果发现,这个计划有个每日用量限制,没办法提供长时间的上网,更别说用网络打电话了。最后,我又买了电话卡,以备不时之需。总之,心中有一念,我要打电话救人,什么也别想挡住我做这件事。由于各种原因,我不能每天到景点讲真相救人,但是我可以拿起电话拨打。我从6月中旬至成稿之日,每天拨打电话,没有间断过一天。而且,在白天,也尽量留出时间打电话。

Since working on the RTC platform, I have rearranged my exercise and Fa study times so as to Fa study at night before calling and also study Fa on the platform. In order to be able to make phone calls, I have overcome all kinds of difficulties. In the beginning, I didn’t have WiFi at home. After convincing family, we changed to a box with WiFi capability. I could do Dafa things on my laptop then. Next was the problem of Internet allowance. 1/3 of our monthly plan is during peak time, that is, from afternoon to midnight. Another 2/3 is for the time from midnight to noon. Fa study and calling time all fall in the peak hour. Family members sometimes watch videos online, which use up a lot of allowance. At the end of the month, often there is not enough. In order to get extra Internet connection, I bought a new mobile phone and joined a plan with data. However, there is a daily limit that I discovered later. I could not get online for too long, not to mention calling online. Finally, I bought phone cards for the time I need. Though all in all, there is only one thought in my heart: “I need to call and save people and nothing can or will stop me from doing this.” At times for varying reasons, I cannot always go out to organise truth clarification, though I can and do make phone calls. From mid-June until this article was finished, I haven’t missed one day. I always factor into my day time to make calls.

 

我在加入昆士兰电话小组后不久的一个晚上做了一个梦,梦中的场景是这样的:阴暗的天空,乌云密布。有一艘旧船上三五成群的站着一些人,但这些人都穿着救生衣。我的腋下夹着一个这样的人,我们在船的上空俯瞰着下面。然后,我们到了船的侧面,我看到船已在侧身下沉。醒来后,悟到是师父在点化我在RTC平台上多救人,快救人。这些穿着救生衣的人已经在心灵上为自己做出了选择,只等我们去帮他们完成在人世间的动作。师父在《二零一三年大纽约地区法会讲法》中说:“时间真的不是太多了,说结束就结束,下一步说来也就来了。”大法弟子没有对时间的执著,一切都在师父的掌握中,无论什么时候结束,我们都是认真的去做,把每一天都当成最后一天,不给自己留下遗憾。

Not long after I joined the Queensland RTC phone group I had a dream. The scene in the dream was of a dark sky with heavy grey clouds. There was a ship with a few groups of people standing on the deck. These people were wearing life jackets. I had one under my arm. We looked down from above the ship. Then we went to the side of the ship. I saw the ship was tipped to the side and sinking. After waking up, I realised that Master had hinted I should try to save people on RTC. The people with life jackets had renounced the CCP in their hearts and were just waiting for us to help them finish the procedure in this dimension. Master said in Fa Teaching at the 2013 Greater New York Fa Conference: “There really isn’t much time left. It could end at any time, and the next phase could begin at any time.”

Dafa disciples don’t have any attachment to the time. Everything is within Master’s hands. No matter what time it finishes, we just try our best and see every day as the last day, and leave no regrets for ourselves.

 

感恩师父赐予弟子们这个助师正法的有力的法器,感谢同修们无私的付出,维护着这个纯净的修炼环境。以上是我在RTC平台上的一点修炼体会,与同修们分享。层次有限,有不在法上的地方,请同修慈悲指正。

Thank you Master for granting disciples such a powerful rectification adder. Appreciate fellow practitioners giving selflessness to keep this pure cultivation environment. This is my cultivation experience on the RTC platform to share with fellow practitioners. It is only limited to my level. Please point out anything that is not on the Fa.

谢谢师父!

Thank you Master!

谢谢同修!

Thank you fellow practitioners!
