Everything We Do Should Be Related to Saving Sentient Beings

I would like to share about a recent incident. During the current economic downturn, many Chinese companies have gone bankrupt. Some companies shut down their operations, and sent workers home for extended vacations without pay. But at the same time, a supplier of my company received many orders. Before the Chinese New Year, I only issued a single order to this company, but due to their busy workload, my order was put on hold. To resolve this issue, I had to make frequent visits to meet their owner, managers and plant staff. In the past, I knew these people very well and explained to them the truth about Falun Gong. They were all sympathetic toward Falun Gong, and agreed to quit from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its affiliates.

A few days ago, I went to this company again. While I was discussing work at the owner's office, he suddenly asked me: "How many years were you detained by the Communist Party due to your belief in Falun Gong?" I suddenly realized that several people in the meeting had not heard the truth about Falun Gong, and a few others had not quit from the CCP.

After I returned home, I carefully reviewed this incident. I felt sorry about my lack of effort to clarify the facts to those people. I am a Dafa disciple of the Fa rectification, and my mission is to clarify the facts and save sentient beings. How well was I doing? I even needed a non-practitioner to remind of this!
I then realized that everything that happens in our life is for us to clarify the facts and assist in saving more people. No matter what happens in a practitioners' life and work, we cannot treat it as an everyday issue unrelated to Dafa. Why did this company suddenly receive so many orders? Why did they fail to make our parts? I had to negotiate with many managers. Wasn't this a hint to encourage me to clarify the facts to more people? Nowadays the turnover rate is very high, and many of their employees are new people. Many former staff members who heard about the facts have left. The newcomers are probably ignorant about the facts of Falun Gong and the "quit-the-CCP" movement. For that reason, I should talk to these people more often whenever I get the chance.

Master told us to look within ourselves for problems whenever new situations occur. From this incident, I realized that the act of looking within should apply not only to personal cultivation, but also to our truth clarification efforts and saving sentient beings. In our everyday life and work, whenever we encounter any issue, I think we still need to look within our own xinxing. (heart and mind character) We should ask ourselves whether or not we have done our best, and in what areas we may have shortcomings.
