Saving a Person's Life from Being Destroyed
Ms. Hong, an elderly woman in China, became a determined Falun Dafa practitioner in 1993. Not long ago, she and some other practitioners went to a labor camp where fellow practitioners were being illegally detained and sent forth righteous thoughts to eliminate the evil elements that attack Dafa and Dafa disciples. They posted truth-clarifying information about Falun Dafa as well. Because of this, the police arrested Ms. Hong. While facing the police, she sent forth strong righteous thoughts to deny all of the arrangements made by the old evil forces and to refuse to comply with the police's demands.
In the detention center, a policeman who was a so-called "brainwashing expert" questioned Ms. Hong. He began by asking her what her name was and where she was from. Ms. Hong replied, "My name is Dafa practitioner and I'm from the universe." He then asked, "Where do you live, how many people are in your family, and where do you work?" Ms. Hong didn't respond to any of the questions. The policeman demanded to know why she was not answering any of his questions, and Ms. Hong replied, "My Teacher has mentioned before, 'I am a person who will not say what he does not want to say, but what I say must be true' (Zhuan Falun). My Teacher's words are the Fa. I don't have to say anything I don't want to say."
The policeman then changed his approach and tried to use ordinary people's sentimentality to attack her, but she paid no attention to him. Instead, she thought in her mind, "I am a Dafa practitioner, and I do not have any of the ordinary people's attachments to fame and emotions." Then she began to send forth righteous thoughts. The policeman began to feel uncomfortable sitting near her and had to move away as a result. As she continued to send forth righteous thoughts, his head began to ache and he had to get up from his chair to walk to the other side of the room. After a while longer, the pain was so bad that he was running alongside the walls of the room. After his third time around, he came to Ms. Hong and pleaded, "My head is hurting so badly, please help me make it feel better." She replied, "My Teacher said that Falun Dafa practitioners should not cure other people's illnesses. If you would like to cure your illnesses, you need to become a practitioner yourself."
At this time, the policeman changed his demeanor and became worried and sad. When Ms. Hong saw this, a strong heart of compassion emerged in her. She made the Big Lotus Palm hand sign and silently said to Teacher, "Please strengthen my energy field so that I can save this person." At that moment, a strong energy current came into her body and her mind and body melted into Teacher's compassionate energy field. She was so tranquil that it was as if her mind were sitting in the heavens. Suddenly, the policeman began to regretfully tell her about all the bad things he had done to Dafa practitioners in the past. "I'm not worthy of being saved," he said. "I've deceived so many practitioners and committed so many sins." Ms. Hong calmly said to him, "Our Teacher said that if you want to become a practitioner, he will help you no matter how many sins you have committed. You have a predestined relationship with Dafa and myself. Originally, you and I both came from the universe, but you have gotten lost in the ordinary human world and have committed a lot of wrongdoing. Today, Teacher has arranged for me to help you, so you must cherish this precious opportunity. From the bottom of your heart, you need to know and accept that Falun Dafa is good. Only then can you be saved in the future."
At this moment, the policeman came over closely to Ms. Hong and sat down next to her. He started telling her about his life and about how he had been through a lot of hardships since his childhood. He talked about his step-mother and brothers and his very unpredictable and difficult family life. He was talking as if he were catching up with a close relative that he had not seen for a long time.
In the end he said, "You have defeated me. You are free to go home now." Ms. Hong replied, "It is not I who have defeated you, it is that our Teacher is saving you." The policeman told her that despite her age, she was very good at conversation, and her thinking and responsiveness were like that of a twenty year old. She told him, "Actually, my wisdom comes from Dafa. I used to be illiterate, but after I learned Dafa I could read all of Teacher's books and could even recite some of them. This is the true power of Dafa." The policeman looked at her respectfully and said, "Let me drive you home. I would like to become friends with you in the future." He then gave her his mailing address and telephone number.
With Teacher's help, this elderly practitioner used her compassion and righteous thoughts to remove the evil elements in the policeman's mind and save his life from the danger of being destroyed in the future. This short Fa validating experience has proved once again that, "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. Dafa disciples are truly stepping forward out of ordinary humanness."
