Righteous Thoughts and Righteous Actions Turn Danger into Safety
(Clearwisdom.net) I am sixty-seven years old. My husband is seventy years old. We have practiced Falun Gong for ten years. Throughout these years, we have always held a firm belief in Teacher and Dafa. No matter what dangerous situations we faced, with our powerful righteous thoughts and righteous actions based on Master and Dafa, we always turned danger into safety. I could see Master's complete and painstaking compassion towards all of the practitioners and all of the sentient beings of the universe, and feel the infinite grace of Teacher. Here I'd like to share some experiences of the sacred Buddha's light shining upon my family, and me in order to show my greatest appreciation and deepest respect for Master and Dafa.
Obtaining the greatest fortune by cultivating Dafa
Before we began to practice Falun Dafa, we lived without any goals and felt very pained and tired from our daily lives. As the years passed by, our health conditions got worse and worse.
After starting cultivation practice, Falun Dafa awakened our conscience and gave us new lives. Our bodies were getting stronger. We did not feel tired from walking or going upstairs, and we were also able to move heavy items when we needed to. We always had endless strength. After my husband quit smoking and drinking alcohol, his skin, which used to be dark with a lot of wrinkles, became soft, smooth, and fair. Among his gray hair, black hair started to grow. His appearance truly turned from "old and senile" into "young and glowing."
I am almost seventy years old. My facial complexion is fair, tender, glowing, and smooth. People who do not know my age usually guess that I am in my fifties. After cultivating Dafa, not only are we very healthy, but also, our family life is harmonious and happy. I completely understand that all of these benefits have come from our Dafa cultivation.
Righteous thoughts and righteous actions turn danger into safety
Through cultivation in Falun Dafa, we understand the real meaning of life, and we know the great historical responsibilities of Fa-rectification Dafa disciples. While doing the three things well, we need to correct and purify ourselves. While our xinxing improves, our ordinary people's mentalities, all kinds of concepts, attachments, and desires are reduced. We feel clearly that our righteous beliefs and righteous thoughts are becoming stronger, our wisdom to clarify the truth is becoming greater, and our compassion is becoming grander. Therefore, the effect of our validating the Fa and saving sentient beings is getting better and better.
Teacher not only gave us the best, but he also protects us everywhere we go during the Fa-rectification. One spring evening in 2004, I went out to clarify the truth. Unfortunately, I was arrested by two policemen who were waiting for me outside my home. After we arrived at the local police station, they tried to scare me by hitting a table and yelling at me. I was not frightened at all. Master's words were in my mind:
"Let me tell you, every person in the entire world was at one point part of my family (applause), including the worst people, or else they'd have no chance to be a human being during this time. What happened in history is what they have gone through and what they chose for themselves." ("Explaining the Fa During the 2003 Lantern Festival at the U.S. West Fa Conference")
I also remembered that Master asked us to be kind to all people. However, as for the interference by the evil in other dimensions, we must seriously eradicate it. Therefore, I felt that those policemen who threatened me were very pitiable. They were controlled by the evil without knowing it. They were walking on a road of self-destruction. I felt compassion arise in my heart. I started to send forth righteous thoughts to eliminate the evil behind them, and dismissed all of their threatening words. I had only one thought in my mind, "Today, I am meeting with both of you, which indicates that we have a special predestined relationship. I have to let you guys know the truth about Falun Dafa in order to save you. As for how you are treating me, your words do not count. Everything is under the control of Master. Only Master's words count."
I talked with them using wisdom, compassion, a kind voice, and the happy feeling that comes from the cultivation of Dafa, and I carefully clarified the truth to them. Their hatred disappeared, and they showed excitement and friendship because they felt that I truly wanted what was good for them. They told me that they could not imagine that I was older than their mothers. They regretted their actions and apologized for their unkind deeds and words.
By clarifying the truth to these officers, I was able to change their twisted souls and awaken their deeply buried conscience. Through my young and fair appearance, and my benevolent and peaceful manner, they saw the beauty of Falun Dafa. Later, they gave me some hot water and fresh clothes, and lent me a cell phone to contact my family. My son came to the police station to pick me up. It was only two hours from the time of my arrest to my release.
With righteous thoughts and righteous actions, I turned danger into safety. It was all because of the protection of Master. I could never say enough to show my appreciation and admiration for Master. I feel that I can only repay Teacher's compassion by continuously cultivating myself to reach the standard of a Fa-rectification Dafa disciple.
