在景点讲真相的点点滴滴 Clarifying the Facts in Fitzroy Gardens
PM04: LY Liu – Melbourne
Fellow Practitioners! Greetings!
I am honoured to have this opportunity to share my experience of clarifying the facts at a Chinese tourist spot with you.
With Master’s protection and care, I arrived in Melbourne at the end of May 2013. I knew it was a precious opportunity for me. I should cherish it and become worthy of Master’s salvation. I should do the three things well to fulfil my pre-historic vows.
I have been clarifying the facts in Fitzroy Gardens since I came to Melbourne a year ago. I have experienced both joy and regret there.
Every day I come across all sorts of Chinese people there. Some stare at me as soon as they get off the buses. Some say that I betrayed my own country. Some say that I am a disgrace. Some say that I am being paid to be there. But some put their thumbs up in support. Some say Falun Dafa is good. Some take photos. Everybody positions themselves by their actions. Whatever the situation, I smile and say: “Good morning - welcome to Melbourne. I hope you enjoy your trip. Please learn the truth here and remember Falun Dafa is good and you will be blessed.” Some of them smile back and nod. Some say thank you. Some don’t make any comments. Some have been poisoned by the CCP’s lies and don’t behave well. I feel sorry for them. I ask Master to strengthen me and send forth righteous thoughts more regularly to clear away the dark minions, rotten demons and the communist evil spectre behind them.
I’d like to share with you some of my experiences.
Sentient Beings Show Appreciation when I Clarify the Facts Well
One day I clarified the facts to about ten tourists who were on the way back to their bus after they had seen Captain Cook’s cottage. I was holding a big poster and told them what atrocities the CCP has committed and how it runs the country with corruption. One of the ladies was brainwashed by the CCP. She said to me: “Without the Chinese Communist Party, we could not afford to go overseas, could we? Without the CCP, who will feed us?” Her words triggered my competitiveness and impatience. I wanted to persuade her and win over her. I said: “The CCP has sold out the Chinese people, but you still can’t see it. You are pathetic!” Then I left.
At that time Master’s Fa came into my mind. I realized that I had taken the wrong approach and I would have committed a huge mistake if I didn’t correct it. I had to apologize to her immediately. But another thought came up. I was nearly sixty years old. It would be a loss of face if I said sorry to her. I asked myself if I was a practitioner and if I was compassionate since I knew the Chinese people represent beings from layers upon layers of cosmic bodies.
“Compassion can harmonize Heaven and Earth, ushering in spring
Righteous thoughts can save the people in this world” (The Fa Rectifies the Cosmos, Hong Yin Vol. II)
Master also said:
“All the things that Dafa disciples are doing today are in fact the responsibilities that have been bestowed upon you by history. Just do what you should do openly and with dignity, and everything will be covered.” (Fa-Lecture During the 2003 Lantern Festival at the U.S. West Fa Conference)
I then went over to the bus without any hesitation and said to that lady and the people in the bus: “I am very sorry for being impolite. I was too impatient and didn’t talk nicely to you. I apologize now. If you were not able to know the truth and be saved because of my poor communication, I would not be worthy of being our Master’s disciple.” They all laughed and the atmosphere became relaxed.
The tourist guide said: “If you give them $200 each, they will quit the CCP.” I replied: “Is each of you worth $200 only? Do you know that in our Dafa disciples’ minds, your life is as precious as that of the Party Chairman!” Then I told them how Dafa has been spread to the whole world, how the Tiananmen Self Immolation incident was staged and how the CCP crushed the June 4th student demonstration in 1989. I also told them that the Wenchuan earthquake was a natural catastrophe as well as a man-made disaster. So many lives disappeared in an instant - those precious lives! Human life had to be treated with the utmost care. My tears flowed. I was not able to talk further. People in the bus then thanked me. I told them not to thank me but to thank our greatest Master.
I told them to make the three withdrawals at the next opportunity if they didn’t quit the CCP this time, and asked them to treasure their own lives and not to be buried along with the CCP. I asked them to take truth and happiness home. I wished them a safe journey and told them that gods bless kind-hearted people.
The bus moved. I waved and bid them farewell.. I was relieved to see their happy faces after they learned the truth. When I clarified the facts to people with righteous thoughts, I received good results and people showed their kindness. Everything depends on my thoughts. How sentient beings behave is up to my heart. The process of saving people is also a process for me to cultivate myself, look within and let go of my attachments.
Doing without Pursuit
One day a bus driver came to me and asked me to clarify the facts to his tourists on the bus because they said that I was paid to be there.
The tourists returned after a short while. I came onto the bus and said to them: “Greetings, sisters and brothers. We Chinese people talk about predestined relationship. Sakyamuni said that it was a predestined relationship of 500 years if two people passed each other. We meet overseas. What a predestined relationship we have! You must have seen that Falun Dafa has spread to every corner of the world. The world knows that Falun Dafa is good. The world needs Truthfulness,Compassion, andForbearance. Only the Chinese Communist Party persecutes Falun Dafa and lies to you that we are paid to be here. The CCP incites people who don’t know the truth to hate Falun Dafa.”
“Do you know that the cost incurred in the persecution of Falun Gong in the last 15 years is as much as the cost of a war? Jiang Zemin used a quarter of GDP to persecute Falun Gong. Zhou Yongkang used 70 billion yuan to maintain so-called social stability. If that money was spent to improve people’s living standard, we would have all been better off. I am telling you this from my heart. Why would I need to be paid to tell you the truth.?”
Then I told them the facts about the murderous history of the CCP since it came to power; the organ harvesting from living Falun Gong practitioners, the selling out of our mother land, the destruction of our traditional culture and environment and the control of the Internet. I also told them that the central government officials have special food supplies while ordinary people have to eat poisoned food, how the CCP officials are corrupted, how they send their family members overseas while cheating ordinary people and devoting their lives to the pursuit of their own personal power. I said to them: “That is why Falun Gong practitioners clarify the truth to you and ask you to make the three withdrawals so that you will be safe when the catastrophe comes and will have a good future.”
The tourists listened to me quietly. Some nodded. Some looked at me. Some read the truth-clarifying materials. I asked if I could help them to withdraw from the CCP using aliases. Some said that they had already done that and some said that they hadn’t joined any of the CCP’s organizations. I knew they were not being honest but still said to them that they could quit the CCP at the next tourist site if they didn’t do so now. But I regretted that they did not quit the CCP right then and there.. Was it because I didn’t clarify the truth well or did I have too much pursuit? What was my attachment that prevented them from quitting the CCP on the spot?
“When it comes to doing things, I consider the process most important, because during the process you can have people see the truth, during the process you can save the world's people, and during the process you can reveal the truth……. But you often emphasize the results instead of fully explaining to them the facts that you should explain during that process. Only when all people know the truth that they should know are you really validating the Fa and clarifying the facts.” (Teaching and Explaining the Fa at the Metropolitan New York Fa Conference)
Master’s Fa opened up my mind and I was not attached to the result any more.
Master Brought Predestined People to Me
One morning a man came over to me as soon as I put up the information boards. I greeted him and asked him if he came from China. He said yes. He told me that he was taking a morning walk and ended up here. I asked him if he had made the three withdrawals. He said he hadn’t. I told him that so far 100 million Chinese people had withdrawn from the CCP and its affiliates and many high officials came overseas to quit the CCP. I asked him if I could help him to quit the CCP using an alias. He agreed andtook some information.. I felt so happy for him.
On another occasion I saw some well-dressed young people return from Captain Cook’s cottage. I went to clarify the truth to them. I told them the murderous history of the CCP, the corrupted officials moving overseas and the karmic retribution suffered by high officials who persecuted Falun Dafa. I told them that Heaven is going to eliminate the CCP and asked them to quit the CCP to keep themselves safe. I asked them if they were CCP members and if I could help them to make the three withdrawals for them using aliases. They said they were CCP members and freely agreed to quit the CCP. The bus moved off and I waved to bid them farewell.
Thank you Master for bringing pre-destined people to me. I hope more practitioners will step out to clarify the truth and save sentient beings. Let’s treasure this time at the last stage of the Fa-rectification period.
Cultivate out Self-Centred Mentality
On one occasion I went to get the information boards with another practitioner. She said we’d better get more materials just in case. I said: “Don’t you see it is raining?” She said it should be clear soon because it rained the whole night last night. But I still held to my own opinion and didn’t bring more materials with us. After a while it became clear and many tourists accepted the materials. We were short of materials now. I had to rush to get the materials from the store room. Luckily we had a store room nearby and our saving of sentient beings was not affected.
Though this was a tiny incident, it exposed my self-centred mentality and fear of hard work. I thought I was able to clarify the truth quite well and had done a good job. I showed off and looked down upon other practitioners. I sought fame and liked to receive praise. I complained about things and argued with practitioners. I was impatient when practitioners pointed out my shortcomings. With so many attachments, how could I possibly see the merits of other practitioners? I measured other practitioners with Master’s Fa and emphasized the importance of myself. How could I possibly harmonize with the whole body of practitioners?
That night when I studied the Fa, I came across the following paragraph.
“But true improvements come from letting go, not from gaining.” (Teaching the Fa at the 2002 Fa Conference in Philadelphia, U.S.A.)
Master also said:
“Divine Being: These problems have already become very serious. It would be good if they could manage to search within themselves for the things that they have been able to find in others.
Master: It’s time for them to become clearheaded so that their environment can turn into one for true cultivation practice, and thus they will be able to become real gods.” (A Dialogue with Time, Essentials for Further Advancement)
Master taught this Fa a long time ago. Due to my poor enlightenment quality, Master had to wake me up with a stick warning. If we are not in the Fa, Master cannot do anything for us even if Master really wants to help us. On the other hand the old forces are staring at me. Our every thought and action must be in the Fa so as not to let the old forces take advantage of our loopholes. Let us form an unbreakable body and improve our collective xinxing. My fellow practitioners cultivate better than I do and I feel ashamed of myself. Other practitioners have been in the Fitzroy Gardens clarifying the facts to Chinese people for 15 years – rain or shine, cold or hot. Those elderly practitioners in their 70s and 80s are still on the frontline clarifying the facts. I admire them. Let’s do the three things well together, keep up with the Fa-rectification process and return home with Master.
I will finish my speech with Master’s poem “Hurry Up And Tell Them” from Hong Yin Vol. II
As Dafa disciples clarify the truth
Sharp swords shoot forth from their mouths
Tearing open the rotten demons’ lies
Lose no time and save them,
hurry up and tell them
Thank you Master! Thank you fellow practitioners!
