Clarifying the Truth to the Police at Home with Dignity
(Clearwisdom.net) On April 25, 2002, around 8 PM, I heard a knock on my door. I opened the door without any hesitation. Four policemen walked in. At the time, I did not have any fear. I thought, "It is not easy to meet all of you. Now that you all have showed up, it is a perfect time for me to tell you the truth." I warmly invited them to sit down and served tea to them. One police asked, "How come there are Falun Gong postings all over the place on the street? Did you do it?"
Instead of answering the question directly, I told them the truth about the entire situation of Falun Gong, starting from how much I suffered from my "terminal disease," and how I learned Falun Gong. I told them about my miraculous recovery from the diseases and my new life free from illness and medicines. They quietly listened. When I went to the kitchen to fetch hot water for them, they also stood up and went into other rooms. At this time, I recalled that I had left flyers on the bed in my bedroom. It was too late to hide them. Immediately, I started to send forth righteous thoughts and asked Teacher to make the flyers invisible to the police. Sure enough, they went in each room and came out empty handed. Before they left, they told me, "Since Falun Gong is good, please practice at home. Do not post the flyers outside."
After they left, my son came out of his room and said, "My dear mom, you scared me to death. We had many banners, self-adhesive postings and many truth-clarifying flyers. How dare you let them in before hiding the materials? You not only let them stay, you treated them with tea as if they were your friends." I smiled and said, "Son, I didn't think about the banners, I single mindedly wanted to tell them the truth so they can respect Falun Gong; they can be saved. Thanks to Teacher for blocking their view. Otherwise we would have had big losses." My son, a non-practitioner, looking at all the flyers said, "Falun Dafa is truly amazing!"
That same night, fellow practitioners and I worked closely together to post the flyers and banners. We did a good job, posting them at very high and visible places. We also distributed flyers to many people.
Later when I recalled this incidence, I gained deeper understanding about Teacher's words,
"The old forces don't dare to oppose our clarifying the truth or saving sentient beings. What's key is to not let them take advantage of the gaps in your state of mind when you do things."
("Teaching the Fa at the 2002 Fa Conference in Boston")
I did not have any fear. My own safety was not on my mind. All I thought at the time was to let them know the truth and respect Dafa, so they can be saved. Because my mind was pure and calm, the old forces had no gap to take advantage of. With Teacher's blessings, the dangerous situation turned out to be a non-event.
