Exchange of Ideas among Practitioners
Never let your relatives write the "guarantee statement" on your behalf. Recently, some Falun Gong practitioners let their relatives or guarantors write the "guarantee statement" [A statement to declare that he or she is remorseful for practicing Falun Gong and guarantees not to practice Falun Gong again, not to go to Beijing to appeal for Falun Gong, and never again associate with any Falun Dafa practitioners]. They mistakenly thought by doing so, it was their relatives who endured the sufferings for them. They also thought that protecting himself was equivalent to safeguarding the Dafa. By doing that, they thought they had passed the tests and safeguarded the Fa. In fact, it is just the opposite. It is letting the relatives commit crimes against Dafa. It is actually no different from giving in to the evil forces.
People in the Brainwashing Class Were Convinced by Me
- From May 17 to 19, 2000, in the brainwashing class conducted by the authorities of the town I was living, I sent forth the righteous thoughts to purge the evil factors. I rebutted the articles slandering Falun Gong one after another with reasons and evidence. A person from the local "610 Office" [an agency specifically created to persecute Falun Gong, with absolute power over each level of administration in the Party and all other political and judiciary systems] asked me to his office for a talk. I answered his questions one after another. He often nodded at my answers with smiles. He said he had read some books of Falun Gong. In the afternoon of the third day of class, I went home openly and aboveboard.
- From August 7 to 22, 2000, I was abducted for the second time to a brainwashing class conducted by the District authorities. This time, they dispatched two "famous" people to reform me, but they finally went away without any progress. The head of the District also came to reform me. He felt that what I said was reasonable, so he could not find any alternatives to persuade me to quit Falun Gong. I was under their surveillance 24 hours a day. With the Fa in my heart, I finally went back home openly and aboveboard.
What a young Dafa disciple saw when sending forth righteous thoughts. Two months ago, much evil still existed. The evil drove cars, held weapons and looked quite vicious. I grabbed one of the armored vehicles and tied it into a knot. Although it was made of steel, it felt very soft in my hand. I threw all of them to the bottom of a precipice and they turned into a pile of dust. Later, the evil became less and less, and they were all in the form of animals. The evil forced some docile animals to do bad things.
When clarifying the truth and distributing flyers, I felt like I was finishing an assignment. I was afraid of arrest and difficulties, and sometimes I did them with a non-practitioner's mentality, that is why my work was oversimplified and sloppy.
Master is eliminating our attachments all the time, so we can improve faster. I will not let down Master's benevolent and arduous salvation, and take solid steps as a Fa rectification period Dafa disciple.
News from China
I had suffered an illness -- my bones were severely loosened. But I obtained a new lease of life after cultivating Falun Dafa and become a healthy person. Because I persist to practice Falun Gong, I had been forcefully sent to a mental hospital, imprisoned in a jail for four times and now I'm wrongfully held in a forced labor camp. Kind-hearted people, I wish you distinguish the good from the evil and kindly treat Falun Gong practitioners. I wish you have a wonderful future.
Mourn for Mr. Wang Chan
Each time when we were with Wang Chan, we could strongly feel the enormous field of righteousness, steadfastness and wisdom radiating from him. We felt that he came here for the sake of cultivation and offering salvation to sentient beings. He merged all of his body and mind into the Fa. We saw from him: how and what to do to be a true practitioner in the period of Fa-rectification and how and what to do in order to deserve to be a Dafa practitioner.
News around the World
In the evenings, many big cities are in a muddy fog. The chemical mechanism for this evening atmosphere pollution is still an enigma. Scientists found out from preliminary investigation that the major ingredient of the poisonous fog is ozone from the ground, which is produced when the sun illuminates the pollutant in the air. Contemporarily, scientists also found that the more pollutant in the air, the less ozone from the ground. This is really a contradictory discovery, because it indicates that reducing the discharge of solid or liquid waste materials would increase the side effect of the ozone from the ground.
The Truth of the Persecution
I am a Dafa practitioner in Xian County, Hebei Province. All six people in my family were very happy to obtain Dafa in December 1998. After July 20, 1999, my husband and I were persecuted and had to leave our home. Later on both of us were arrested and taken to jail in Xian County. I fasted 9 days in protest. I was tied to an iron bed for IV transfusion. Then I was sent to Kaiping Labor Camp in Tangshan City, where I was not allowed to sleep or to practice. Moreover, they forced me to listen to or watch all kinds of fabricated lies. My husband suffered a lot in prison. Because he had to do hard physical labor every day, he had hypertension, enteritis, and other symptoms.
On July 9, 2001, practitioner Yin Yuzhen was deceived into going to the police station by the wicked police from farm 597. After being interrogated, she and several other practitioners were all sent to the administrative bureau. They fasted 20 days and were released. The police station took the opportunity to extort 3,200 Yuan and also forced them to hand over a 5,000 Yuan deposit, which made practitioners' lives extremely difficult.
