(Clearwisdom.net) After the existence of the Chinese Communist Party's secret concentration camps were exposed, some fellow practitioners started to doubt Teacher. I would like to share my own understanding with regard to this topic.

I obtained Fa in 1998 and soon afterwards, the persecution against Dafa was launched. Many fellow practitioners were arrested, and sentenced to jail or forced labor camps. Teacher said in Zhuan Falun, "and if someone could affect you, he could affect me, and to put it directly, he'd be able to affect the universe." Whenever I read this sentence, I had some doubts considering the persecution in China. This state lasted for a long time.

I have now come to the understanding that it is not Teacher who cannot protect the disciples. Rather, the key issue is whether the disciples develop righteous thoughts or human thoughts when they face a tribulation. Teacher can protect cultivators, but not everyday people. If a practitioner does not have mainly righteous thoughts and does not treat himself as a divine being, it will be hard for him to pass the tribulation. On the other hand, if a practitioner has sufficient righteous thoughts and can always recall that he is a Dafa disciple instead of an everyday person, and that Teacher is at his side at all times, he will pay attention and send forth righteous thoughts when facing tribulations. After the evil is eliminated, everyday people can do nothing to a divine being, but will be controlled by the divine being.

We have cultivated in Dafa for such long time, and Teacher has rectified our status from a person filled with karma to a pure person and has endured a lot for us in the process. We are unable to express our gratitude to Teacher. How can we doubt Teacher? Also, we should treasure our good fortune of being given a chance to cultivate. In my opinion, fellow practitioners who doubt Teacher may have similar thoughts to mine. They do not truly understand the Fa. Presently, I have sufficient righteous thoughts. Especially after I studied Teaching the Fa in the City of Los Angeles, my righteous thoughts became stronger.

Recently, something interesting happened to me. Around April 25, many local fellow practitioners were interfered with to different degrees. I myself managed a store inside a factory. The factory director asked me to move out within three days. I first looked inwards, and then exchanged views with fellow practitioners. I realized that this was interference. Faced with this issue, I sent forth strong righteous thoughts, reflecting that only Teacher's words count and that the director could not really affect me. Afterwards I explained my position to the director calmly and kindly. Three days later the director allowed me to keep my store in the factory. To everyday people, this seemed impossible but I realized that my righteous thoughts manifested Dafa's invincible might.

Fellow practitioners, please, do not doubt Teacher; pay more attention to Fa study and exchange views with others more often. We are so fortunate to be Dafa disciples during the Fa-rectification period.
