Ifve joined the international RTC Sydney group for nearly two years, spending two nights every week calling China via RTC to clarify the truth. I always enjoy listening to the various approaches of fellow practitioners in different countries making their calls. I envy their well-paced, steady and peaceful way of clarifying the truth, and believe that to improve quickly on phone calls I must take time each day to do so.
But when I sit in front of the computer at night, there are many excuses to not make the call. Last year, when Shenyun came to Sydney, the telephone group took a break as everyone was busy with Shenyun activities. When the coordinator notified everyone to return to RTC platform after Shenyun finished, I felt apprehensive. At the same time I was irritated at myself for not feeling the urgency of saving sentient beings, treating it like a job and going on the platform only twice a week, yet still finding it hard to persist. When I thought that young practitioners around me are also in the phone group, and that it was hard for them to persist if I withdrew, I forced myself to join the RTC group, and the results of my efforts were as one might expect from such reluctant mentality.
Master said in gFa Teaching at the 2013 Greater New York Fa Conferenceh, gCultivate with the heart you once had, and consummation is certain.h I wanted to find the heart I once had. I have been overseas for nearly two years, but my protection visa was still not approved. I asked myself: without the cultivation environment at home, can I still carry on until today in the 14 years of terrible persecution? For a long time Ifve stayed in a phase of recognising Dafa and Master emotionally and not rationally. During my cultivation, when I meet with things that go as planned, I am thankful towards Master and Dafa, but when I come upon difficulties and tribulations, am I able to still be grateful towards Dafa and Master, to understand Masterfs vast compassion and believe that Master will give us the best? Cultivating according to the Fa is the safest, concentrate on cultivating oneself, doing the three tasks and walk right the cultivation road.
When I really had the mentality to save sentient beings and want to improve, Master opened my heart. I can easily advise quit the CCP at tourism spots, and I am steadier when making phone calls. Recently when Ifm making phone calls to ordinary citizens, all I want is to give them the joy of quitting the CCP. Master said in gTeaching the Fa at the 2003 Atlanta Fa Conferenceh, gEven when in your daily life you pass by people so quickly that you don't have a chance to talk to them, you should still leave them with your compassion and kindness.h

Last week I made a call to advise quit CCP, and the person who picked up said, gAre you promoting Falun Gong?h I answered, gYes, Falun Gong has spread to more than 140 countries and regions, you can legally practise it in Hong Kong and Macau, and there are more than 700 000 practitioners just across the waters in Taiwanch He said, gStop, your call is being tracedh and hung up. I called back and continued to clarify the truth, and he said, gStop talking. Your call is being tappedh and hung up again. I called back once again, and he said, gStop pushing it, the police are coming.h Faced with his threats, I called again and said kindly, gYoufre very kind sir, thank you for thinking of my safety. Ifm not trying to advertise anything, Ifm not trying to convert you, Ifm telling you how to avoid disasters, please accept my sincere blessings.h He agreed easily to quitting the CCP.
During a special project and of telephone rescue I saw my shortcomings. While on the Liaoning project, I got the number of a town mayor and secretary. When it connected, I told them the red tide was ending, to protect their lives by quitting the CCP, and they hung up and never picked up again. A telephone draft was posted onto RTC platform during sharing which had a high connect rate. Knowing how difficult it was for practitioners to collect these phone numbers, I tried using the new draft to call, but despite using the same words, the connection rate was still low. I realised that the draft was based on what practitioners had been enlightened to in their cultivation, hence the good result in saving sentient beings.
I know that when making rescue phone calls, persistence and determination is vital. Watching other practitioners making a call, whether or not anyone picked up, the practitioner believed that even with the ringing of the bells served to repel evil. No matter what the person on the other end said, they were not moved, there was only compassion and dignity in clarifying the truth.

In rescue phone calls, I canft even match the young practitioners around me. On a call to the police, he could clarify the truth with solid righteous thoughts, analysing the situation inside and outside China, speak of punishment by human law to retribution by the heavens, then to Dafafs truth and Tianfanmen self-immolation falsehood. But when Ifm making rescue calls, they hang up and I would keep asking the young practitioner what I should say next and how. In the battle between good and evil, I lost my footing first. When the other person starts cursing, I talk about heavenly retribution with a competitive mentality. If they appeared to be pleasant, I get worried Ifll offend them and avoid talking about the aftermath of committing crimes. So I wrote drafts every week, but therefs no improvement during phone calls. When I sat down and thought about it I realised the drafts I had written so carefully are all hiding a fear mentality, fearful of policemen hanging up, fearful of being verbally abused, fearful of not being able to answer their question. It all came from a foundation of self. I felt they were different from normal citizens, thought this persecution was humans against humans and did not treat the problem like a cultivator. These sentient beings in the law enforcement units were being controlled by the evil spirit of the CCP and are participating ignorantly in the persecution. They are the true victims.
The duty of Dafa practitioners is to clarify the truth and give them the chance to choose a good future. During recent rescue phone calls, two understandings made improvements in my cultivation. One was an emergency case sent from Rescue Chat Room One, where a Chinese practitioner was illegally arrested that morning. During the call, I felt I was standing at the very frontline of the battle between good and evil. Recalling how the evil persecuted Dafa practitioners in China, sleeping during the day and beginning their illegal interrogation at night, at a time when the Main Consciousness is weakest. Midnight Beijing is 2am in Australia, and itfs very hard to get up to Fazhengnian, so I forced myself to sleep after 2am from then on.
One Friday evening, the director on the rescue platform called to say they were busy and couldnft direct that night, and asked a young practitioner to direct phone calls. They returned from school pale and lethargic, and went to bed to rest. There were only 3 people during Xuefa on the platform. We were two people down before the battle even began. I thought, in everything Dafa disciples do, cooperation as a whole is most important. We are all Masterfs disciples, from now on I must concentrate on practitionerfs good side, the more practitioners we have, the more strength we have.
When I moved home, I wanted to use the living room for Fa Study with fellow practitioners. As encouragement from Master, the metal door at home had four tufts of Udumbara flowers. I would say to the flowers everyday, gFalun Dafa is good, Truth-Compassion-Forbearance is good.h

I want to share a story about using divine powers. One day on returning home from clarifying the truth, I realised I lost the quit CCP name list. I was very anxious that these sentient beings could not be saved because of me. I swiftly prayed to Master to allow me to use my divine powers to find the list again, so that those sentient beings would not miss out on being saved because of my oversight. The next day when I stepped out, I saw the paper filled with quit CCP names lying on the grass not far from home, covered with dew. It was great! Thank you Master!
Lastly, I would like to share a poem from Masterfs gHong Yin IIh to encourage myself and fellow practitioners.
A Righteous God
With righteous thoughts and righteous actions
He is diligent without letting up
Eliminating demons that damage the Fa
He is good to all beings
The above is my personal understanding, please kindly point out my shortcomings.
Thank you Master! Thank you fellow practitioners!
