Walk Down an Upright Cultivation Path with Righteous Thoughts
(Clearwisdom.net) I obtained the Fa in February 1992. In the course of Fa-rectification cultivation, among all the hardships in the past nine years, the divine power of Dafa has been manifested on every occasion. It is my greatest honor to have the opportunity to assist Master in Fa-rectification, with Master's protection and fellow practitioners' sincere cooperation. I would like to share my experiences in Fa-rectification, to report to Master and discuss with practitioners.
Within the first five months of my obtaining the Fa, the genuine cultivation and group practice environment built a solid foundation for me in Fa-rectification cultivation in the later period of time. When the persecution of Falun Dafa started on July 20, 1999, I didn't waver in my firm faith in Master and the Fa at all. I continued to display Master's picture as before and did the three things as required by Master. With such firm faith in the Fa, with Master's benevolent protection, I was able to walk the path of Fa-rectification without running into any real danger.
In the summer of 2003, a practitioner was arrested and sent to a labor camp for distributing truth-clarification materials. Her mother didn't accept Dafa and threatened to report the practitioner who provided the truth-clarification materials to the police. When I heard about this, I thought, "I am a Dafa practitioner. I should stop this, so as to be responsible to the Fa and to the practitioner." I found the practitioner's home address from a local coordinator. She wanted to go to the practitioner's home with me, but I refused, because she was under surveillance. I thought if I could handle it, I should not let the other practitioner go. I wanted to ensure safety for the other practitioner. I sent forth righteous thoughts continuously while I took a bus to the practitioner's home to visit her mother. I comforted the old lady and told her, "Your child is the best person in the world. What she did was the most righteous. I am very proud to have her as my friend. Your daughter was imprisoned, but it's not her fault. It's the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) who is persecuting Dafa and kind people, and it's the CCP who commits crimes against benevolent people. There is nothing wrong with cultivating 'Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance'. Falun Gong practitioners are all good people." Gradually the old lady calmed down. She no longer questioned if I was sent by the other practitioner. Finally I told her, "You are a good person. That's why I came here to tell you the facts. Please regard us as your children. If you need any help, we will do our best to help you." Then I left 200 yuan for her, and told her, "This is a small gift from me and the other practitioner. We will come to see you regularly." She was very touched and grateful. I suggested to the other practitioner to communicate with the old lady and face her with righteous thoughts. We harmonized the situation, sincerely cared about her and awakened her kind thoughts. Eventually she changed her hostility towards Dafa, and called us her daughters. After her daughter was released, she quit the CCP and its related organizations. I had a deeper understanding of Master's Fa and the importance of validating Dafa with our words and deeds.
"Compassion can harmonize Heaven and Earth, ushering in spring
Righteous thoughts can save the people in this world"
(Hong Yin Volume II, "The Fa Rectifies the Cosmos") One day after lunch in May 2006, a practitioner called me. She said she was downstairs, but she was followed. She wanted to see me urgently and asked if I could meet her. I thought, "I am a Fa-rectification disciple. No evil exists in my dimensions. Her matter is my matter." So I immediately replied, "Don't worry. I will be there right away." My husband asked me, "What's the problem?" I said I would meet with this practitioner. My husband didn't want me to leave because this practitioner was reported by her in-laws a few days before for practicing Falun Gong and was detained by the police. She was later released, but was under surveillance. I said to him, "I am a Fa-rectification disciple. Other practitioners' matters are also my own. What I do is the most righteous. Please support me with righteous thoughts." I met with the practitioner in time. She rapidly gave me the things she had brought, including Dafa books, and I hid them right away under my coat. I reminded her to keep righteous thoughts, to disintegrate the evil with divine thoughts, and to completely negate the old forces' arrangements as no one is worthy of testing us.
These experiences all demonstrated the power of righteous thoughts. When we regard ourselves as divine beings, "evil will of itself no longer exist" (Essentials for Further Advancement II, "Eliminate Your Last Attachment(s)") and "the path underfoot is naturally clear." (Hong Yin Volume II, "No Obstacles") "If you are not afraid, the factor that would make you afraid will cease to exist." (Essentials for Further Advancement II, "Eliminate Your Last Attachment(s)")
