(Clearwisdom.net) After reading several articles on "Minghui Weekly" on completely denying the persecution by the old forces and rotten spirits, rectifying our every thought with Dafa, entirely merging into the Fa, and doing well the three things Master has asked us to do, I had many thoughts that I would like to share with everyone. The following is my experience in opposing the economic persecution in the last few years.

I practice Falun Dafa with my wife and daughter. In the winter of 2000, the three of us went to Beijing to appeal the persecution to authorities. We were sent back to our hometown by the police. Soon afterwards, the staff from our work unit sent us to detention while also dismissing us from work, using the excuse that we failed to show up for work. After being released from the detention center, our work unit sent four people to spy on my wife, my one-year-old granddaughter, and myself. The constant spying continued for nine months. For nearly one year, we did not receive a salary. In addition to this, my daughter was illegally arrested and sent to a prison for 14 months. During the nine-month period while we were continually being watched, our work unit held a brainwashing session for four months. Later, I was then sent to the brainwashing session hosted by the municipal 610 Office for one month. The wicked authorities tried various means to destroy our reputation and bankrupt us.

In the spring of 2002, I went to the provincial 610 Office to appeal because of the treatment I received from my work unit. In retrospect, all of the evidence I had (including the "Five-Ministry Document" issued by the Ministry of Justice, Ministry of Human Resources, Ministry of Labor, Ministry of Social Security, Ministry of Education, and the Office Against [Chinese government's derogatory term omitted]) and the viewpoint I held then were based on the evil's viewpoint. I was trying to fight the persecution from within the persecution itself. The provincial 610 Office gave an order to the local 610 Office agents, who then visited my work unit twice just for show. Nothing came of it and the economic persecution continued.

I thought harder about the situation. The so-called "Five-Ministry Document" is an evil order by Jiang Zemin's group to use government power to persecute Falun Dafa practitioners economically. As a practitioner, it was wrong to use the document as evidence to stop the persecution. This did not meet the requirement of Dafa. However, at that time I did not understand it fully from the Fa principles. My thoughts were still muddled. I was not able to fully deny and eliminate the evil. My truth-clarification work was also inadequate. As a result, for the last several years, the economic persecution has not stopped.

Now I understand that as a Fa-rectification period Dafa disciple, I should treat everything from the standpoint of Master's Fa-rectification and the Fa-rectification of the cosmos. Dafa disciples can only gain what they should through validating the Fa, saving sentient beings, and breaking through various human notions. What is demonstrated is our mighty virtue, the boundless power of Dafa, and the righteous thoughts and righteous actions of Dafa disciples. In order to break through the evil's persecution, including the economic persecution, we need to be righteous, and this can only be achieved by truly following Dafa.
