Discovering My Attachment to Time and Successfully Getting Out of a Detention Center
(Clearwisdom.net) The police seized me while I was distributing truth-clarification materials on December 3, 2006. Learning of my predicament, fellow practitioners sent forth righteous thoughts to support me. I had also negated the evil persecution and finally got out of the detention with righteous thoughts after two weeks of detention.
The moment I was seized and taken to the local police station, Master's words reverberated in my mind:
"Just by staying unaffected you will be able to handle all situations" ("Lecture on the Fa at the U.S. Midwest Conference")
I defied all the evildoers' requests and clarified the truth to all the police officers I met. I told them to quit the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) and its affiliated organizations. When I talked to a Political and Security Section officer, one who is listed as one of the "evil persecutors" on the Internet, he didn't want to listen to anything I said. I asked him, "Are you just a tool?" He said, "That's right! I am the hilt of a sword!" He then slammed the door and left. The following day I was sent to a detention center.
While there I remembered Master's Fa:
"What could human beings possibly do to gods? If there were no outside factors, would humans dare to do anything to gods?" ("In Fa-Rectification Your Thoughts Have to be Righteous, Not Human")
Therefore I started to send forth righteous thoughts to eliminate all the evil factors behind the evildoing police who participated in the persecution. If we eliminate all the external factors controlling these people, isn't that doing things according to Master's arrangement?
I suddenly flashed back on the interrogation sessions with the police. I realized that these police officers were just like tools, tools being operated by the evil CCP and its wicked laws and definitions of rules for the persecution of Dafa and Dafa practitioners. That was also the so-called basis of the persecution. Thus, during my sending forth righteous thoughts I added, "Eliminate the CCP and its wicked rule for the persecution of Dafa practitioners." Once it is eliminated, it will be pulled out by its roots.
Another thing: I had a feeling about what Master said to us,
"As I've said, everything that happens today in the ordinary society is the result of Dafa disciples' thoughts." ("Teaching the Fa at the 2002 Fa Conference in Philadelphia, U.S.A.")
The day before I was due to be released a cell mate asked me, "Will you be able to get out tomorrow?" I replied to her that I would follow Master's arrangement. She then asked whether Master had arranged for those people to be sent to forced labor camps. After hearing that, I felt that there must have been some problem with what I had said. But where was the problem? There seemed no issue on the understanding of the Fa. However, when explaining things like this to ordinary people, it might be at too high a level for them to understand. I thought about it for a whole night. Afterwards I found one notion: I was attached to time. I had acknowledged the 15 days' detention. Although I had paid lip service, saying I would follow Master's arrangement, in actuality, due to my attachment, I was trying to define the time when I could get out. I was trying to make my own arrangement. I then broke through all the time-related notions. Two hours here would be a year in heaven. Even one extra day remaining here would additionally delay Fa-validation and the rescuing of sentient beings. We can't afford to be jailed for one more day. I should be immediately and unconditionally be released!
Early the next day I announced to everyone I met that every day is the day for my release. It adds to their crime to keep me locked up one more day. When I said this, all my cell mates changed their opinions and all believed I would be free. Some of them asked me to take their letters to their homes. Nobody mentioned the forced labor camp again. At about 10 o'clock some people came and let me out.
Here I would like to suggest to all imprisoned practitioners: utilize the interrogations or trials to clarify the truth; clarify the truth no matter how one appears on the surface; do not miss any opportunity to clarify the truth.
This is my personal understanding. Please point out any mistakes.
