(Clearwisdom.net) Reading "With Righteous Thoughts and Righteous Actions, Four Potential Incarcerations Were Thwarted" (http://www.clearwisdom.net/emh/articles/2009/7/19/109295.html), inspired me tremendously. The practitioner, although imprisoned, still did everything she/he could to clarify the truth. But, at the same time, I held doubts about this practitioner negating the old forces' arrangements.

I would like to share my understanding, so we can better understand Teacher's words and help Teacher rectify the Fa.

The practitioner was imprisoned in a detention center for fifteen days, "I had only one thought at that time: Everyone here is predestined; I must grab every opportunity to tell them the facts and save people. I had no fear or feeling of being persecuted. I just thought that Teacher had sent me there to save people. I felt that I was clarifying the truth. I had no thought about being persecuted--only about saving people." During the four times the practitioner was arrested and released the practitioner thought, "Wherever I went, I thought that it was Teacher's arrangement." Once a woman reported the practitioner, but the police did not come to arrest him/her, "The writer continued, "I think Teacher used this conflict to untie the knot in her mind and save another life!"

My question is, "Would compassionate Teacher send his disciples to an evil prison to save predestined people?" Teacher exhausted everything he has to save sentient beings. Would Teacher let a life (the woman who reported the practitioner) commit a crime that could destroy her life, that is, reporting a Dafa practitioner, in order to save her?

I believe this practitioner is selfless but he did not negate the old forces' arrangements. The evil exploited his gap and forced four prison terms on him within two years. He did not wake up to the correct understanding and walked the path arranged by the old forces unknowingly. He suffered, although he shouldn't have. He even thought Teacher arranged this evil persecution for him. This misunderstanding must be corrected to prevent further persecution.

Teacher has been talking about completely negating the old forces' arrangements of the past ten years. In my experience and from many practitioners' sharing, I deeply feel Dafa's magnificence and see Teacher's compassionate protection. In understanding Fa principles, righteous thoughts and righteous enlightenment emerged in practitioners.

After reading the article and thinking about the practitioners who still suffer from the evils' various types of persecution, I felt awful. Perhaps the practitioner did not listen to Teacher and did not cherish the unprecedented treasure given by Dafa.

Teacher gave an example of a practitioner being selfless and clarifying the truth in a prison in his lecture in New York in 2003. Judging by the background of the story, I believe this practitioners did not think Teacher arranged him/her to be there, but practiced what Teacher said to utterly negate old forces' arrangement, to stop the persecution, to clarify the truth, and to save sentient beings.

"We're fundamentally negating all of their things, and all of, and only, the things you do while negating and getting rid of them is mighty-virtue. It's not that you're cultivating amidst the ordeals they created. Rather, you are to walk your own path well while not acknowledging them, not even acknowledging the elimination of their ordeals' manifestations." "Teaching the Fa at the 2004 Chicago Conference"

The practitioner I'm referring to in this article stepped into the practice of Falun Dafa in 2006. His steadfast behavior is indeed hard to come by, but what I'm talking about here is the Fa principle.

We must realize the importance of studying the Fa well and improving ourselves. We need to quickly eliminate human notions and do the three things well. We should do everything possible to validate Dafa.
