Let Us Walk Back Home Together, Hand In Hand
When our actions are righteous, the evil will give way. Teacher will do the rest for us.
In July 2000, I was among the practitioners arrested for clarifying the facts about Falun Gong. A police officer said to us, "After you have signed the document renouncing Falun Gong, you may go home, and for those of you who don't want to sign the documents, you will be sent to the forced labor camp." At that time, the question of going home or being sent away to a forced labor camp did not cross my mind. I was focusing on clarifying the facts to the supervisor, and telling him about the goodness of Falun Dafa. Later, when I was summoned to the court, the judge asked, "Will you go again to Beijing to appeal?" Without hesitation, I answered nobly, "Of course I will, as soon as I am out of here." A few days later, I was released.
In 2001, I went to Beijing again to validate Dafa. In front of Tiananmen Square, I raised up high a Dafa banner, running and shouting at the same time, "Falun Dafa is great." None of the sentinels on guard in the front, or the troop of over a hundred police officers drilling at the back, had taken notice of me at all.
For the last three years, from 2001 to 2004, I have been teaching in a school, which is quite a distance away from home. It is a good opportunity for me to distribute Falun Gong flyers on the way. Once a fellow practitioner saw me and made some remarks on paying attention to safety. But truly, I do not want to miss an opportunity to save a fellow human. On the other hand, I have not considered my personal safety either. For the last three years, I have done this day in and day out but have never had any problems.
Once, while distributing flyers along a road, I saw a police van parked across the street, right in front of me. While keeping firm righteous thoughts in my mind, I walked towards the van. The van simply drove past me without stopping and soon disappeared from sight. Later, several similar incidents occurred, but I remained unmoved. About 50 meters away from my school, a police station and a public swimming pool share the same courtyard. There is no sign indicating that there is a police station inside. I have been distributing flyers in front of the courtyard for the last three years and only recently have I learned that it is a police station. I heard from my school principal and some children's parents that an officer from the police station had been covering up for me all along.
Whenever there is an opportunity, I will clarify the truth; regardless of how many people are present, or whether I am on a busy street, riding a bus, or on board a train. I have also given many people my telephone number and home address, and so far my home has not been disturbed.
All the practitioners in our area who I know are doing Dafa work have all been persecuted. Nevertheless, I have decided to remain behind to carry on with the Fa-validation work. Hence, I have detailed the persecution and put down my name and address as well on an article for distribution. The police said that I am among the most wanted. But even after the flyers were distributed, my home remained untouched and is still as steady as a rock.
Our environment and personal cultivation are closely connected. Evil is still rampant because Dafa practitioners' thoughts and actions have not completely integrated with the universal law, which has given demons gaps in which to hide. When we have done well the three things of studying the Fa, clarifying the truth, and sending forth righteous thoughts, we are walking down the path arranged by Teacher. There is no connection between the already integrated beings of the new cosmos and those beings of the old cosmos, so there is no way the demons can reach us. Whereas, when we have not done the three things well, we are walking the paths arranged by the old cosmos. Teacher does everything for us, and through the process we are only getting rid of our attachments, integrating with the new cosmos, and at the same time establishing the greatest mighty virtue. The path laid out by Teacher is the safest, and the most glorious. Let us be steadfast in our faith in Teacher and the Fa, and walk back home together, hand in hand.
