With Strong Righteous Thoughts, the Brainwashing Center Is Sure to Close
(Clearwisdom.net) Lately, I have heard that officials with the Liaoning Province Judicial and Public Security, as well as the 610 Office, gathered in Fushun City to start a brainwashing center. They gave out quotas to the governments of the Province's different regions, cities, and counties and ordered them to arrest practitioners. I want to share my understanding with local practitioners on how to disassemble a brainwashing center from the standpoint of the Fa. Let us utilize more power, rationally and clear-mindedly, to eliminate evil, completely dismantle the brainwashing class in Fushun, and save sentient beings. If our motivation is pure and correct, with strong righteous thoughts, the evil will be eradicated, and the dissolution of the brainwashing "class" will be inevitable.
While we eliminate the evil, we must not forget that we are cultivating during the Fa-rectification. We need to remember that we are Dafa cultivators. No matter what issue we face, we need to measure it with the Fa. "take the Fa as the teacher" ("Teaching the Fa at the Conference in Canada") While we clear out the evil, we also should cleanse ourselves of anything that does not comply with the Fa. Only this way can we walk a righteous path.
I read an experience sharing article on the Minghui (Chinese version of Clearwisdom) website, "Do Not Cooperate with Any Arrangement at the Brainwashing Center." From that article, I realized that our goal is not to be uncooperative, but to do things in accordance with Master's requirement, work with other practitioners as one body, and completely eradicate the brainwashing center. That would be the most compassionate resolution.
First, we need to put our fundamental perspective onto the right path. If we look at things from a personal angle (selfishness), that kind of persecution is harmful to our own person, which is a human thought. That thought is not a righteous thought. In the end, things will become difficult. If we look at things from a sentient being's angle, standing at the point of harmonizing what Master wants with our utmost effort, then we are letting go of self. And only then can we treat ourselves as divine beings who save people. That kind of persecution interferes with our offering salvation to people. Only when we meet the standard of the Fa will we clear out the evil and display the infinite power of Buddha Fa.
Once at an experience-sharing meeting, I remember a practitioner talked about being chased by the authorities after he pre-empted a cable TV broadcast with Dafa programming. He was in a taxi and several police cars were behind him. He heard the police yell, "You wouldn't be able to escape even if you had wings." But even at that time, this practitioner did not forget to clarify the truth to the taxi driver, while he sent forth righteous thoughts at the same time. He wondered why he couldn't get rid of the police who were chasing him. He wondered what he did wrong. After correcting each thought, he realized that he sent forth the thought of not letting them catch and persecute him. That thought was not a divine being's thought, but a selfish notion. After he corrected his fundamental perspective, he sent out an enormously strong righteous thought, "Completely eliminate all evil beings and elements that control sentient beings to commit crimes against Dafa and Dafa practitioners." After a few minutes, he was able to escape under Master's merciful care.
As a Dafa practitioner, we help Master to rectify the Fa. All that we do circles around the need of the Fa-rectification and the need of saving sentient beings. Everything that we do is based on saving people. We are not attached to anything in this world. Dafa practitioners' firm belief, their compassion, and their tolerance should completely disintegrate the brainwashing center and prevent those beings from committing crimes against Dafa. Only then can they have hope to be spared from elimination.
"For this reason, all Dafa disciples, new and veteran students alike: when you send righteous thoughts, besides the targets that you specifically lock in to, aim directly at those dark minions and completely eliminate them." ("Eliminate the Dark Minions With Righteous Thoughts")
"When Dafa disciples have strong righteous thoughts and no fear, they can use righteous thoughts to turn the tables on the evildoers. Whether it's when the wicked policemen are using electric batons or when bad people are injecting drugs to persecute you, you can use your righteous thoughts to redirect the electric current or the drugs back to the person doing violence to you. You can do it with or without your palm erected--it works as soon as your righteous thoughts emerge." ("Stop the Evil Acts with Righteous Thoughts")
