Openly Validating Dafa with Righteous Thoughts
(Clearwisdom.net) All my illness vanished after I began practicing Dafa, and my daughter, who also is a practitioner, now has a master's degree in medicine. However, she had previously been ill and close to death. Cultivation is serious. Letting go of life and death is to break away from humanness. Teacher mentioned that if you let go of life and death, danger will not come to you. I follow Teacher's instructions. No matter how the old forces try to disturb my heart and stop me from validating Dafa, I firmly follow Teacher. Our Teacher protects me, and Fa Guardians have assisted me in overcoming different kinds of danger. I "clarified the truth" in Harbin, where I live. My whole satchel of truth material was searched by policemen. Then, I was sent to a rehabilitation [brainwashing] center. However, the center refused to admit me. Then, I was sent to Wanjia Forced Labor Camp. But still, I was not accepted. The policemen had no way to handle my case, so I was released after several days.
On another day, I distributed truth-clarification material at a provincial high school and dormitory, and I was arrested and taken to a detention center. My home was searched while I was there, and the perpetrators sentenced me to three years of forced labor. I sent a letter through a policemen to a friend in Huludao. The friend helped to obtain my release from the detention center. I then temporally lived in Huludao where I did not know any practitioners, and I lost contact with other practitioners.
To validate the Fa, I started writing truth clarification material. One day, when I was posting information about the persecution on a wall, a person approached me. After I finished putting up the information, he told me that he worked for the local 610 Office, and that he knew all the Falun Gong practitioners in the area, but he had never seen me before. At first he planned to call the police, but he changed his mind after I clarified the truth to him with compassion; he let me go. I once again experienced "Compassion can harmonize heaven and earth, ushering in spring."("The Fa Rectifies the Cosmos" in Hongyin II)
Not many local people understand the truth about Falun Gong, and I felt the urgency. So I continued truth clarification, but I was too hasty. Soon, I was reported. Three young policemen came and ordered me to get in their car. I thought that this was a chance to save them. Since this thought was based on the Fa, what happened next went very smoothly.
I got into the car with a smile. I talked with them about the evil of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), the truth about Falun Dafa, the Tiananmen Massacre of students in 1989, and organ harvesting of Falun Gong practitioners and other examples of the CCP's brutality. The policemen listened quietly. Later, an older officer sadly said, "Don't say anymore."
I replied, "If you don't know the truth, how can you be saved? I am over sixty years old, and I don't fear death. But you have your wives and children. If you don't withdraw from the CCP or its related organization, you won't have bright futures. Please remember what I told you." I kept talking until we arrived at the Jinshan Police Station. A director met me. He said three sentences.
"Where do you come from?" I then talked about "Heaven's Destruction of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP)." He listened to me carefully. He saw a paper I had put on the desk that read: "Heaven's destruction of the CCP is near, withdraw from the CCP and save lives." He asked, "You are against the CCP?" I replied, "No, we are not. The problem is that the CCP is against Dafa." Then, I told him about the history of the CCP. He then said, "If what you said is true, we don't want to bother with you." He left the office. I then took my bag, went downstairs, left the police station and went home.
I had so many experiences while validating Dafa. I learned how to negate the persecution. All abilities come from Teacher. Most importantly, Teacher is always beside us. If we have righteous thoughts, everything goes well. For our Teacher, for his great Dafa, please get rid of human attachments and openly validate the Fa with righteous thoughts.
