(Clearwisdom.net) I am a woman who lives in the countryside. I'm 40 years old. In May 1996, I started to practice Falun Dafa. Cultivating Falun Dafa has helped me understand how to become a better person. My family, which has been separated for 3 years, has now been reunited and is very happy, and my long-term disease disappeared not long after I began practicing.

Since July 20, 1999, Jiang's Regime has been brutally persecuting Falun Gong, and my family has not been able to live in peace since. In October 2000, I traveled to Beijing to appeal along with other practitioners and was caught at Tiananmen Square. The police sent me to a police substation. Because my thoughts were not righteous, I did something that should not have been done by a Falun Dafa practitioner, and the police released me. Later I went to Tiananmen Square again to wait for opportunities to validate Dafa with other practitioners. I was again caught and sent to the same police substation. The police again forced me to do something against Falun Dafa and I was again released. After I got out of the substation, my main consciousness understood that I didn't pass the test and caused a loss to Dafa. Therefore I discussed with other practitioners and decided to unfurl a banner the next day. However, during the night, the police from my hometown caught me. They beat me up but I didn't feel hurt. I knew Teacher had been protecting me. I never had the courage to write these things down. Later I heard some other practitioners who also had the same experience. For the practitioners who hadn't done well, as long as we want to continue practicing, and have righteous thoughts, Teacher will help us. Teacher said in"Explaining the Fa During the 2003 Lantern Festival at the U.S. West Fa Conference",

"I've said that if you fall, pick yourself up and keep going forward--Master won't abandon you, and you mustn't lose confidence. There are still opportunities, and I'll manage to save you no matter what. Now do you still lack confidence?"

Therefore we should not confuse ourselves and destroy our long-time wait of thousands of years in one morning. All this exists in one thought.

One night in November 2001, seven or eight police from the police substation broke into my home and asked me whether I still practice Falun Dafa. I told them it was not wrong to become good people. They shouted loudly, "no matter if you're right or wrong, as long as you practice Falun Gong we'll beat you to death without paying a price." I refused to cooperate with them. They then dragged me into the police car. I was illegally detained for 15 days. The director of the police substation extorted 2,000 Yuan from my husband. When my husband picked me up from the detention center, another 700 Yuan was extorted from him. Afterwards whenever there were sensitive days the director of the police substation would drive to my home to harass me. Whenever they came, I always spoke to them with our principles and clarified the truth about becoming good people. Their attitudes gradually eased up, and now the director respects me a lot. When I distribute flyers or clarify the truth face to face, I don't have fear. Evil does not exist in my mind. Now I just follow the three things that Teacher asked us to do, and melt completely into the magnificent wave of Fa-rectification.
