坚守唐人街十年讲真相 Persisting in Truth-Clarification at Chinatown over the Past Ten Years
PM11: X Wu - Sydney
Introduced by my friend in 1998, I commenced practice in the school of Falun Dafa. A month later, stubborn ailments that after being perplexed me for years, with medical treatments by many experts, had left me. I felt uplifted physically and mentally. Since 1999 when the communist regime launched its persecution of Falun Gong, I and my fellow practitioners took the path to validate the Fa in Hong Kong and Thailand. At that time, those practitioners who stepped out to clarify the truth were terrific. Back in 2004, I went with a few other practitioners from Sydney to Manhattan to assist Master in Fa-rectification. The same day when we arrived, we went to Manhattan to clarify the truth. At the time, we didn’t know what tiredness was and all we thought about foremost was to save sentient beings. I sat at a truth-clarification spot where it was filthy and smelly to send forth righteous thoughts. But wonderfully, I smelled a dense smell of sandalwood. I came to realize that as long as I am righteous, regardless of which environment we were in, the result would turn out to be the best, as we are assisting Master in Fa-rectification. Inspired by the experience, I became more confident in my future practice.
After return to Sydney, I actively joined in truth-clarification at China Town, where it is the forefront field in truth-clarification, for it has the most Chinese visitors, including people of all other ethnic backgrounds from around the world; secondly it can greatly impact on the evil factors by setting up truth-clarification spots. The evil factors fear the truth, not to mention the area in China Town.
Since 2005, I have been full on in truth-clarification in China Town. It has not been easy to set up the stall in China Town, involving a lot of time and manpower. Compared to the hardship of my fellow practitioners, I have less burden of family. I chose not to go to work, and instead I assumed full responsibilities in Chinatown to clarify truth. At the beginning, I drove a small car that had to hold all necessary materials, equipment, such as posters, table and boxes of flyers. At the time, I asked my son to help fold down the backseats. However, it couldn’t be done even after much effort. Then I reached out to pull and the backseats unexpectedly moved. My son asked me how I did it. I said I did not know. Thus, the space in the car was made to hold all materials and equipment. At the time, I realized this incident told me to take responsibility for truth-clarification in China town.
开始协调唐人街真相点的时候感觉很困难，有时候没有人来，有时候又来一大帮人；这个说展板要这样摆，那个说要那样摆，又不听统一协调，总之心性关不断，一直磨合着。参加了今年的纽约法会后我更加理解了师父在《世界法轮大法日讲法》中所讲的：“修炼如初，必成。” 我理解这么多年我在修炼中心性在不断的提高，并且要求自己达到修炼 如初的状态。譬如以前我在遇到刺激心灵的事时，自己会气得跳起来，感觉艰难得像一座山，现在很快就会醒悟：这周围发生的事都是在帮我过关、提高心性。现在碰到这种事情的时候，会感觉出奇的平静，最多是一笑了之。经过这么多年，同修们在唐人街救度众生的过程中都在不断放下自我、配合整 体，就是希望抓紧时间征签、劝三退和救人。
To coordinate the truth-clarification point in Chinatown was very hard for me at the beginning. Sometimes, no one came while other times people crowded the spot with some saying the poster should be placed like this and others saying the poster should be positioned like that. I didnt listen to overall coordinator with tribulations along the way – a bumpy road. After the 2014 New York Fa-hui, I gained a better understanding of the Fa Master expounded in Fa Teaching on World Falun Dafa Day “Cultivate with the heart you once had, and success is certain.” I came to realize over the past years I have been elevating my Xingxin throughout my cultivation practice and require myself to persist in the same diligent state as when my practice started. For instance I would flare up inside when confronting a Xingxin issue, so heavy as if a mountain was there. Now I would come to realize it is the time to raise my Xingxin. All things happening around me are to help me rise in my cultivation of Xingxin. Now I can take it easily by letting it go with a smile. After years of fellow practitioners’ truth-clarification at Chinatown, it has all been to let go of selfishness to harmonise with the collective whole in the hope of grasping time to save sentient beings by helping people quit the CCP and sign the petition.
In fact, to give up the attachment to fame, profit and Qing is easier said than done. Sometimes, it really felt like a heart-wrenching pain. At the time, the stall setup in Chinatown was interfered with and there were Xingxin tribulations among fellow practitioners, which appeared to be a big trial. As Master said in Hong Yin - Tempering the Will: “Abundant troubles rain down together, All to see: Can you pull through?” I realized to validate the Fa in Chinatown is my mission, with no retreat or slacking off. It is also my responsibility, if I don’t go to set up in Chinatown, then those elderly practitioners would face difficulties to bring posters by themselves. When I set up the stall, coming from remote distance, the elderly practitioners would directly work on the petition and help Chinese people quit CCP. We all cherish the chance to clarify the truth and save sentient beings. We have collected more than ten boxes of petition signatures, especially those petitions to oppose the CCP’s live organ-harvesting from living Falun Gong practitioners.
With perseverance in truth-clarification in Chinatown over the past decade, great changes happened to sentient beings. At the start, the business owners and passers-by would often come to kick the posters and table, especially at night when it was dark, the table was damaged by the kicks. Some would come over to sing funeral songs:”Why do you always disrupt us from doing business?” Some would swear at us with rude gesture with some delegated by the Chinese Consulate.
However, with the constant progression of Fa-rectification, along with the changes in the cosmos, sentient beings are changing too. The process of long-term truth clarification in Chinatown is to consistently eliminate evil interference from other dimensions. Those who were confused have changed their attitude with many becoming our friends. They often come to greet us and have a chat. The person who often came to sing funeral songs comes to us with respect and often chats with us in regards to the downfalls of those who persecuted Falun Gong practitioners. Some even do Heshi to us. Some people took material to read at home and search for information about Falun Gong and even started to practice Falun Dafa and became very diligent practitioners, including both Chinese and Western people. After seeing these great changes in sentient beings, we are more confident and inspired to clarify the truth in Chinatown. A Truth-clarification stall in Chinatown is a must in every area. Thus, I am determined to persist in the path and to do an even better job.
In more than a decade of efforts in truth-clarification in Chinatown, I profoundly experienced the process of my cultivation practice, and it is to go through Xingxin trials to abandon selfishness. Master has removed a lot of bad substance from my body. Now as I sit in meditation, I feel myself being elevated and the more I sit, the more comfortable I feel. This feeling became more prominent this year. I hereby thank my fellow practitioners for the care and sharing, which enables me to constantly study and recite Fa. When confronting issues, Master’s appears in my mind, like Master said in Zhuan Falun, Chapter 4, “We’d say that a good or bad outcome comes from one thought. The difference in one thought leads to different results.” With Master’s teaching, once a bad substance surfaces, it would perish as I rise in levels. I often feel Master cleanse my body. I have truly experienced that Xingxin elevation goes hand in hand with rising in level. After over a decade of cultivation, I realized what my body feels like in a state free from any ailments.
Many people used to ask me why I could clarify the facts in Chinatown for a decade, constantly, regardless of weather, I said:“Believe in Master and the Fa”, and “practice cultivation as diligently as when you first began”. Support and coordination among practitioners made me persist in Chinatown over a decade to clarify truth to save sentient beings.
Thank you Master!
Thank you my fellow practitioners!
