(Clearwisdom.net) A while ago, some practitioners were held at a detention center for over ten days. During that period, the arrested practitioners didn't cooperate with the evil's instructions or commands. The practitioners outside worked together, exposed the evil, sent forth strong righteous thoughts as a whole, and cooperated with the arrested practitioners' family members in clarifying the truth and asking for their release. With practitioners' righteous thoughts, the detention center promised to release the practitioners on Saturday. But when the family members went to pick them up on Saturday, the detention center said that they would release them on Monday. When the family members went there on Monday, the detention center again postponed it to the next day. This is a frequently used trick, where they would postpone the release until they can send the practitioners to a forced labor camp.
We cannot succumb to this trick again. Master said:
"Absolutely don't think about any favors the old forces might do for us, or about how the ordinary society might help us. You are the ones saving the ordinary people's society, and you are the ones saving sentient beings!"("Teaching the Fa at the 2002 Fa Conference in Philadelphia, U.S.A.")
Only want Master says counts, and we should completely negate the old forces' arrangements. We notified all the local practitioners to send forth righteous thoughts at the top of each hour on Tuesday and to work with the family members in requesting the arrested practitioners' release. We also asked that, if possible, practitioners try to send forth righteous thoughts from a location close to the police station.
On that day, many practitioners from nearby areas came to send forth righteous thoughts and strengthen the family members' will to ask for their release. At around 10 a.m., the family members came out of the police station and said that they had postponed the release to the next day again.
The practitioners indicated that we must not quit, but instead keep asking for the release, and that we must get the fellow practitioners back. The family members agreed with the practitioners and went back to ask again. This time, they finally got the practitioners out at around 11:30 am.
By rescuing the fellow practitioners, we realized that the process is really one of all the practitioners forming one body. It is also a process of eliminating the evil, and a process of staying firm in our faith in Dafa. It is also a process of getting rid of attachments, improving, and cultivating. We hope that all practitioners can actively do well the three things that we should do, assist Master in the Fa rectification, rescue our fellow practitioners, save sentient beings, disintegrate the evil, and keep pace with Fa-rectification.
