Treat the Fa as Teacher and Do Well with Righteous Thoughts and Righteous Actions
(Clearwisdom.net) I am a practitioner from China. I began the practice of Falun Dafa in 1998. Since 1999, when the persecution started, I have walked the long and difficult road of Fa-rectification cultivation. Because I refused to cooperate with the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) persecution, and kept my cultivation strong, I was able to walk steadily down this path. With my actions as an example, I was able to change my colleagues' mindsets and break through the old-forces' so-called tests one after another. Below are a few stories of my experiences along the way. Through them, I realized that if practitioners truly take the Fa as Teacher and have righteous thoughts and righteous actions, the Fa's dignity will manifest in the human world.
1. Righteousness Will Never be Suppressed by Evil
After the persecution started, the situation in my workplace was the same as everywhere else around the country. Everyone had to take the tests. To answer the questions correctly, you had to slander Dafa. When I was given the test paper, I felt a deep sadness from the bottom of my heart, so I sent forth righteous thoughts. I had to tell the truth; I had to stop this evil from happening. I wanted to turn in the test paper with righteous answers!
I remember that one of the questions was, "What is the cult's essence?" My answer was: "Persecuting kind people, deceiving the public, embezzlement and corruption, fear of Truthfulness-Compassion-Tolerance. Those are the cult's essence." I also told my colleagues about my answers and encouraged them to also use them. After we handed in our test papers, we all passed. I knew that Master was helping me. I also deeply knew that this was the mighty power of righteous thoughts.
2. Have Righteous Thoughts for the People Manipulated by Evil
One day, a high-ranking official in my workplace gave me a document from the government about tightly controlling Falun Gong appeals. He asked me to distribute it to the people under me. I told him, "If you want me to distribute the document, I will write 'Falun Dafa is good' on each copy of the document." After seeing that I was serious, he left without forcing me to do it. As a result, the document was never distributed. On the surface, he hesitated and was afraid of a higher-ranking official's investigation. With my powerful righteous thoughts, the dark demons that manipulated him were eliminated.
3. Righteous Thoughts Have the Power of the Fa
After the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party was published, the CCP was very scared. Everyone was required to go to all kinds of meetings, swear their allegiance to the party again, wear the party badges and report daily. Of course, I had to pass these tests as well.
I destroyed the party badge on the spot right after it was handed to me. I also tore up all my notebooks sporting the party emblem. During the swearing of allegiance to the CCP, I erected my hand to send forth righteous thoughts and eliminate the evil. When it was my turn to speak, I talked about the CCP's inhuman nature, its killing of hundreds of thousands of people, how the CCP overthrew the government with force, how it destroyed all the Chinese traditions and culture, and how it set up a government of dictatorship and brainwashed all of the country's people with the party culture.
The high-ranking officials in the meeting were all astonished and the room fell silent. As a result, when high-level government officials came to our company to check our progress, the officials at my workplace no longer asked me to help serve them. No one checked my daily reports or my notebooks. This shows how a righteous mind and righteous actions can overcome all evil.
4. Clarifying the Truth with Wisdom
All my colleagues know that I am a Falun Dafa practitioner. Sometimes they joke with me by posting truth-clarifying materials they receive on my door. This inspires me. I made my own truth-clarification materials and also posted them on my door. The effect was really good. During the time when people were arriving at work, I purposefully cried out, "Who posted these materials on my door?" Many people of different ranks came to see them. Gradually my office became a truth-clarification material distribution spot. Many people with predestined relationships happily came to my office to read materials and watch videos. I advised them to quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations according to their individual situations. The result was very good.
The above stories are my experiences during my Fa-rectification cultivation and they are also the process of my improvement and my breakthroughs in levels. Under Master's compassionate protection, I have conquered many difficulties during the past eight years. Every improvement came from Fa study and cultivation of xinxing, and I truly felt the weight of Master's every word. Without the Fa's guidance, I would not have been able to make it this far. I am unable to express my gratitude in words. I have been able to walk down my cultivation path and,
"Validate the Fa with rationality, clarify the truth with wisdom, spread the Fa and save people with mercy..." ("Rationality" from Essentials for Further Advancement II )
I will fulfill my vows and do what a practitioner of the Fa-rectification period should do. Let's cultivate ourselves diligently and walk each step well so as to fulfill Master's expectations of us.
