Facing Problems with Righteous Thoughts and Eliminating the Evil Persecution
(Clearwisdom.net) When I was arrested in 2002, I did not have time to destroy an outline I'd written of my experience sharing and some experience sharing articles from other practitioners whose names were on them. The police confiscated all of these documents. At that time, I felt great pressure. Because I had loopholes in my cultivation, my experience sharing outline talked about truth-clarifying material production sites and fellow practitioners. I lacked a sufficient sense of security and did not destroy them before my arrest.
I was very anxious. I knew that the more I worried about it, the easier it was for evil to take advantage of my loophole. I tried my best to calm down to recite the Fa and send forth righteous thoughts. When I was reciting the Fa, Teacher opened up my wisdom. I suddenly realized that my experience sharing outline and fellow practitioners' experience sharing papers were our enlightenment from the Fa and that the Fa at this level cannot be used as evidence for persecuting fellow practitioners. Otherwise, it would make our understandings of the Fa evil. Even if I mentioned fellow practitioners' names in my paper, doing that is part of my understanding of the Fa.
Thinking this way, I stopped worrying. I talked to my experience sharing paper in my mind, "Outline, you are my weapon. Every word in the outline ought to listen to my command. When the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) personnel study you, you should attack the evil like swords. You ought to destroy the evil. You can only help the world's people be saved and cannot be used to destroy them. Remember, you are not evidence. You are compassionate, you are kind, whoever reads you will benefit from reading you."
I sent forth righteous thoughts every day to eliminate the evil persecution. I deeply believed that Teacher would take care of me. Even though I had loopholes, I knew I would do better. I believed that Teacher would protect the material production sites and fellow practitioners. It turned out to be true. CCP personnel did not interfere with the material production sites or fellow practitioners mentioned in those documents.
I knew this protection was due to Teacher's compassion. I have learned from this incident. I started to be strict with myself and think of others. I pay a lot of attention to other people's safety now.
