(Clearwisdom.net) Recently, a fellow practitioner's home was ransacked by the police. The practitioner mentioned what happened when we met and related it to a recent lack of Fa study. The practitioner was taken advantage by the old forces because he just focused on truth clarification work without putting Fa study and solid cultivation first.

About five police officers broke into the person's home. The practitioner tried to explain the facts to them, but they not only refused to listen they also forced the whole family to open all their closets for them to check. After that, the police took away all the materials related to Falun Gong and arrested two practitioners and their family members who did not practice Falun Gong.

As a result of police harassment and pressure, the practitioner signed the CCP's guarantee statement against his will. The practitioner explained that he was not able to think of Dafa at that moment. Although he was not tortured physically, he forgot about the mission of a practitioner at that most critical moment.

After this incident, this practitioner finally understood that cultivation is a serious matter, and any deviation from the righteous path is not acceptable. The practitioner was awakened by the tribulation. What Dafa disciples are doing are the most righteous things. It's too late to wake up after being persecuted. The fellow practitioner quietly examined the root causes for this persecution and found several reasons which let the evil forces take advantage of him. Some of the reasons included being distracted, being tired, only superficially studying the Fa, losing concentration while sending forth righteous thoughts, being self-righteous and not listening to fellow practitioners' advice, and issues with giving up the mentality of zealotry. He really learned his lesson from this incident.

After listening to this experience and the person's shortcomings, I found that I also had the same problems. The attachment to zealotry is a very serious problem. The reason we came to Earth was to help Master in Fa-rectification. It's the most sacred objective in the universe. How can we feel happy by saving just a few sentient beings? There are many more sentient beings waiting for us to save them. Fellow practitioners, let's purify our dimensions with our purest righteous thoughts and disassemble the evil forces that prevent Dafa disciples from fulfilling their missions. Let's spend all our precious time in saving all the sentient beings. Let's stop being self-admiring, give up our attachments so that the evil forces cannot control us, and save all the beings controlled by the evil forces. We should always remember the teachings of Master:

"Study Fa, obtain Fa,
Compare in studying, compare in cultivating,
Examine each and every deed,
Accomplishing is cultivating." ("Solid Cultivation" from Hong Yin)
