Truth Clarification Requires Righteous Thoughts and Righteous Actions
Falun Dafa (Falun Gong), a mighty way--a great virtue
I feel very fortunate to have started practicing Falun Gong in the early part of 1999. Before that I had health problems that tortured me so much I didn't want to live. Although I am not old, I had high blood pressure, felt fuzzy in the head almost every day, experienced neck pain, and had difficulty just getting through the day. With three children attending school, chores at home, and a store to look after, I was often teary-eyed at work. I also had a serious gynecological problem that caused continuous menses for three years. None of the medical treatments I tried solved my problems. I was really suffering.
All my health problems disappeared within three months of finding Dafa, and without any medical treatment. While I was so joyful, I also realized the power of Dafa, which solidified and strengthened my cultivating Falun Dafa.
Righteous thoughts paired with righteous actions, assist Teacher's Fa-rectification, and save sentient beings
Since July 20, 1999 Falun Dafa has been smeared and brutally persecuted by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). Although I was a new practitioner, and still had a shallow understanding of the Fa at that time, I was not deluded by the slander, lies, and smearing of Dafa that I heard on the radio, or saw on television or in the newspapers. What I had already experienced proved that Falun Dafa is a great way with lofty virtue.
With respect and gratitude to Teacher, I made up my mind to go to Beijing with fellow practitioners and clarify the truth about Falun Dafa. In Tiananmen Square, we, with righteous thoughts and righteous actions, shouted, "Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good! Return Teacher's reputation!" We gathered with fellow practitioners from around the world for Fa-ratification, we shared our cultivation experiences, we mutually understood the great magic and benevolent might of Falun Dafa, and we exposed the CCP's evil actions. Based on our righteous thoughts and righteous actions, and the protection of Teacher, we all returned safely home.
Teacher wanted us to spread the truth with the goodness and compassion of Dafa practitioners, to broadly distribute the "Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party" and other materials, to post all kinds of materials in villages and towns for all those who've been poisoned by CCP propaganda, regardless of whether they are high officials or common people, older folks or young children, let them know the facts and the teachings of Falun Dafa, let them know that heaven will destroy the CCP, and let them know that to be safe they must withdraw from the communist party and its affiliated organizations.
My days are very busy. In addition to cooking, doing laundry and other household chores, I work in a store. While in the store, I use every opportunity to tell customers about the goodness of Falun Dafa, and advise them to quit the communist party. Of course I'd also eliminate the evil meddling elements in other dimensions, and awaken people's main consciousnesses. The results were pretty good. Most young people agreed to quit the CCP and even used their real names. They also thanked me before leaving the store.
Late at night, we posted banners and distributed truth-clarifying materials. The more materials we passed out, the more hopeful we felt that we were saving sentient beings. As I recall, there was one time, very late at night, when my fellow practitioners and I were distributing materials everywhere. As we were walking on a small trail through a field, we were suddenly confronted with a bunch of dark things, causing us almost to fall to the ground. We realized that we'd walked into a group of tombs. Before becoming a practitioner, I was a easily scared. But at that time, I thought of Teacher's poem "Benevolent Might," and my fear disappeared right away.
Dafa is what you carry everywhere,
Zhen Shan Ren, rooted in the mind;
A great Arhat walks the earth,
Gods and demons fear with awe.

Eliminating human thoughts, replacing them with Godly thoughts
In November 2002 the CCP was relentlessly persecuting Falun Gong and arresting practitioners. One night, while my fellow practitioners and I were distributing materials, we were arrested and taken to a brainwashing center. The 610 Office agents tried every possible way to instill the CCP propaganda into us. When we were in the brainwashing center we recited Lunyu and Teacher's articles every day. We had only one thought: We are Dafa disciples; we don't acknowledge the persecution; and we will steadfastly cultivate Dafa until completion. Consequently, Teacher gave us a hint in a dream, "Return home in sixteen days." On the 16th day, we, with strong righteous thoughts and Teacher's support, pushed through four iron gates and escaped from the dungeon. Again we experienced Dafa's benevolent might.
In 2004, the husband in a family living right next to our store happened to be in charge of a 610 Office, which gave me opportunities to chat with his wife. I gradually told her about the goodness of Dafa and its power. Due to her having heavy karma and a devilish nature, whenever I mentioned Falun Gong, she'd howl at me, and even shout abuses. Then, one day while I was reading in the store, a bunch of people stormed in and dragged me into a police vehicle and then took me to a forced labor camp for a 15-day detention.
However, I realized that I couldn't hate the head of the 610 Office and his wife because they were being taken advantage of by evil forces. I must disintegrate the evils behind them and then do all I could to save them. So I went to their home, and of course sent righteous thoughts first to disintegrate the evil elements in other dimensions in their home, and then to ask for Teacher's help. When I saw him, he was still angry; but my state of mind was peaceful. Using my personal experiences and other facts I told him about the goodness of Dafa in detail. Gradually, his attitude changed from condemning to quietly listening. Finally he said with a sense of regret, "Actually I knew that Falun Gong was good. From now on it will be better for me if I don't help a tyrant do evil!"
