Go Out To Clarify The Truth
Ling Kim Mooi - Johor Bahru, Johor
Greeting Master and fellow practitioner,
I am Ling Kim Mooi, I am a primary school teacher in JB (Johor Bahru).
Fa rectification progress is reaching the end of the end. Master also keeps asking us to clarify the truth and save the people around the world. I have read the Fa and Recent Articles, but just can’t completely follow what is told by Master. I only clarify the truth occasionally, and always short one out of the three.
I have read quite a few articles on the wisdom net about school teachers teaching their students with the principle of Truthfulness, Compassion and Tolerance. I felt that I should do the same. One day, during the last two morals class, I took the opportunity and wrote ‘Truthfulness, Compassion, Tolerance’ on the blackboard. I then explained the meaning of these three words and told my students to be a good person. At the same time, I told them some stories of loss and gains, all of them are willing to listen. Because of insufficient of time, we have to stop the topic. After that they always like to ask me about Falun Gong. Because I have to catch-up the schedule, I just gave them a brief introduction, and didn’t touch the key point. I feel sorry to them.
One day, a few of my students saw the VCD about the truth of Falun Gong I brought along, and they asked for it. So I gave it to them and tell them to pass on to others after they have finished it, and they will have good luck as a reward if they do so. A few of them also took the magazine <Witness> and passed around. When they saw the photo of persecution they feel it is very cruel, and said out loud that the government of China is very bad. Some of them even discussed with me the scene in the self-immolation after they have watched it. I also seized the chance to tell them that the self-immolation is false, it is a directed fraud. Some students even did sitting meditation in front of me. Because I don’t have enough VCD, some student didn’t get to watch it, so I make use of a spare class and took them to the projector room to watch it. During the screening, I keep sending righteous thought to eliminate all disturbances. Finally we have finished the program smoothly, and it is a relief for me.
Actually, clarifying the truth to student is not difficult. The toughest one is to clarifying the truth to the people outside. Because all fellow practitioners are working, therefore we can only go out to introduce the Fa and clarify the truth during the weekend. Every time they will invite me to go together, but due to fear and attachment to easy and comfort, I always look for excuses not to go with them.
One day, I read on the Wisdom net saying that those practitioners in China still go out to clarify the truth in such a bad environment, this is an expression of selfless. While I still looked for many excuses not to go out, this is not simply the attachment to easy and comfort, but selfishness. In order to break through myself, I went out with fellow practitioners the subsequence weekend.
In the process of clarifying the truth, I saw my fears, vanity etc. and I don’t have enough tolerance. For instance, in one occasion, when a person bad mouth about Falun Gong, I couldn’t tolerate it at that time and felt intimidated, and my voice became louder, like I attempted to convince him by force. After searching inside, I discovered that I am easily affected by others' speech, and not tolerant enough.
One evening, two salesmen came to my house. Initially I did not plan to entertain them, but I changed my mind when I thought of I should clarify the truth to them. So I went out and talk to them. After that I gave them the VCD and told them that I am practicing Falun Gong, with intension to let them understand the truth of Falun Gong. After hearing about Falun Gong, one of them started to bad mouth about Falun Gong. As soon as I heard that, my heart became intimidated again. I told them that some of the reports on the newspaper are not true, especially the negative reports about Falun Gong. I told them that Falun Gong has been practiced in more than 60 countries now. Some of the practitioners are doctors and PhD. holders.
Because my voice was too loud, one of them said that I seemed like quarrelling with him, and then only I was struck that I am being rude. I gave them the material about the truth of Falun Gong, but the light was too dim, they can only look at the pictures. I seized the chance to clarify the truth to them, and asked them to watch the VCD. They also asked me if my neighbors knew about Falun Gong, I said only a few of them know, they said that I should let all of them know! I was suddenly enlightened that Master is using their words to tell me to clarify the truth to all my neighbors. They thank me when they left, I felt happy because more people have understood the truth.
End of September this year, we have rented a stall in the Carrefour supermarket, JB. We displayed some board introducing the spread of Falun Gong around the world, and the introduction to books of Dafa. We also demonstrated the exercise when we have enough man power. Because it was the promotion period of the supermarket, many have come for shopping. In 8 days, tens of thousands of people have seen our stall, many of them have received our material but some of them refused to take the material due to misunderstanding against Falun Gong. Some of them seemed very surprised that Falun Gong is here. Also some people said something unpleasant to hear, and of course there are some people who wanted to understand the truth. And we all grasped the opportunity to clarify the truth to them as far as possible. Although everybody is very busy, but we all come to help after work, this activity also lets the practitioners who don’t usually come out to have the opportunity to come out.
Because many people have never seen the exercise of Falun Gong, therefore when we demonstrated the exercise in front of our stall, frequently many were attracted, and they were all very amazed with our double cross sitting meditation. It also attracted some people to learn! In these 8 days, our stall opened from 10am to 10pm, after school I had to hurry to the supermarket to help in distributing the flyer and clarifying the truth. Sometimes I also helped in printing the material. Even though busy and tired, I felt very satisfied.
In addition, we also went to those areas which have no Dafa practitioners during the weekend, to introduce Dafa and clarify the truth. Usually we will choose the most popular park at that area, and perform the exercise and display some boards and materials there. As soon as we start the exercise, the peaceful field will attract people come forward to watch, and take the material, some even want to learn, quite a good response. Although the newspapers have published a lot of negative news about Falun Gong, but some people still do not know about Falun Gong, and curiously want to understand. Certainly there are some who have been poisoned too deeply by the negative news, and not too friendly to us.
In the process of clarifying the truth, I notice that there are in fact many people misunderstood about Dafa. If all practitioners can come out to clarify the truth, I think the situation in Malaysia will certainly be changed. Thanks.
