Oppose the Arrangement of the Evil Forces; Steadfast Righteous Thoughts Helped Me to Walk Out of the Detention Center (Part II)
The next morning, Liu from the Political and Security Section came into the room and said to me hypocritically, "So you have been squatting like this for the whole night?" I replied, "Yes." He passed me a chair and let me sit down. Then said, "You can make a confession now. Since someone else has already confessed things about you, why would you still want to conceal anything? We just want to confirm the information we got from him." I thought, "For anything concerning other people, I would lose my head and could shed my blood, but I will never speak a word to provide loopholes for them to take advantage of, to give them a chance to persecute Dafa and practitioners." Liu said, "I remind you, his name is so-and-so from the XX region. You know him, don't you?" I said, "Through studying Dafa, I have learned a lot of wonderful things that are beyond ordinary people's comprehension, and I have benefited a lot from this. There is an old saying 'A favor of a drop [of water] should be rewarded with a bubbling spring.' The fundamental criterion for being human is to be a person with an upright conscience and without bad thoughts. Being heartless and disloyal, and giving up my dignity for personal benefit is totally impossible for me!" Liu pretended that he had nothing to say and walked out after a while. Then a young delinquent walked in who was sent here for fighting with others. I started to clarify the truth to him. I asked where he lived and whether he knew about the truth of Falun Gong. He said, "Someone wrote the words of 'Restore the Reputation of Falun Dafa' in my hometown." I told him that the Tiananmen "self-immolation" incident was a fabricated incident; that practitioners do not kill; suicide is sinful, and that practicing Dafa means to cultivate "Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance." I also told him about the heavenly principle of retribution. He replied, "No wonder it is like this! It is so hard to be a good person!" I was so happy for the understanding of his true being, and my heart of benevolence rose. People! Don't know what they live for. When I remembered the tribulations our Master had suffered for all sentient beings and the slanders by the vicious people, I understood the mercy of the Master, the importance to help Master to save the kind-hearted people, and the importance of clarifying the truth. Words fail me to describe the great benevolence of the King of the Buddha's and Gods. I had never felt such a great shock before. My rock-firm heart to cultivate was strengthened even more.
In the afternoon a young policeman entered the room, sat down besides me, and said: "Too much smoke in the room. May I open the window and let in fresh air?" I said, "Sure, open it." He said, "It's cold outside. Let's leave it closed so you won't catch cold." I said, "You are quite kind-hearted, and you are still so young and will have a good future. What do you think about the saying 'good will be rewarded with good and evil will meet with evil?'" The young policeman said, "Everybody knows that the injustices to Falun Gong will definitely be redressed. But that's in the future. Now you have to cooperate with me, telling me the source of your materials and where you distributed them." I said, "I am sorry. Since you know I am a good person, why do you ask me to do bad things? Aren't you yourself doing bad deeds too? You've got to be responsible for your future!" The young policeman said, "I don't believe [in Falun Gong], but I don't object to it, either." After a while he pretended to make a call and walked out. Soon he returned and said, "If you are like this I cannot complete my task. You are unwilling to tell the source of the material. At least you can tell to whom you have sent them. The other person has already confessed things about you. What morality and justice are you safeguarding?" I solemnly said to him, "Our Master is doing the most righteous thing, to rectify the Fa and rectify all the deviated realms in the cosmos. As Dafa disciples we must also be the most righteous; to righteously enlighten to all principles, including rectifying all bad behaviors, correct our own words and deeds. Others have chosen the evil path and do bad deeds. That is their problem." I saw through his disguise. He was trying to use the practitioners' benevolent side to move me, and then find some chance to take advantage of it. The young policeman asked, "Why are you always smiling?" I said, "This is the practitioners' benevolence. You still have a part of you that understands. I am truly happy for you. Some police officers are completely without any righteousness. There are no positions for them in the future." Although we were chatting and talking, actually it was a fight of wit and bravery. The young policeman knew that everything coming from my mouth was the righteous belief in Dafa. He could not find any loopholes and could not obtain what they wanted, either. But I knew their true intent from the beginning. With the wisdom given by Dafa and my firm, righteous mind I defeated each of their plots. I remembered Master's comment, "Also In A Few Words," "Indestructible righteous thoughts toward the cosmos' truth form benevolent Dafa disciples' rock-solid, Vajra Bodies; they frighten all evil, and the light of Truth they emanate makes the unrighteous elements in all beings' thoughts disintegrate. However strong the righteous thoughts are, that's how great the power is."
In the evening I heard a quarrel outside. It was about sending me away. At that moment I was the only one left in the room. I remembered Master's article "Path:" "A cultivator has no role models. The path each person is to take is different." Should I be imprisoned like this, passively suffering, thus accepting the arrangements of the old forces in the universe? Master does not endorse any of these arrangements. As a new life and a particle of Dafa, I should not accept these demands but closely follow Master's steps in Fa-rectification. I must walk out. Master, please help me! I kept sending forth the righteous thoughts. Suddenly, the handcuff opened. I thought, "Master asks me to leave." So I opened the window and jumped out. I walked not too far and soon found a taxi waiting. When I got into the taxi the driver said, "Someone asked me to wait here." I understood this was Master's arrangement. Now I am back in the mighty current of Fa-rectification.
