(Clearwisdom.net) I have been practicing Falun Dafa since 1995. On July 20, 1999, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) started the suppression of Falun Dafa. I went to Beijing to appeal for Dafa's good name several times and was arrested and sent to the Shijiazhuang Women's Prison for five years. While there, I endured all sorts of inhuman torture.

During my imprisonment, my husband's health fluctuated widely. My eldest daughter couldn't withstand the pressures on her; so, she found herself a young man and married. My youngest daughter was forced to handle the heavy burdens of the family while still attending school.

After I was released in 2004 and returned home, I denied completely the evil old forces' arrangements and the persecution with righteous thoughts. All the bad elements of the old forces from my imprisonment had to be dissolved through a compassionate solution.

My daughter's husband is eight years her senior. He is also the type of person whom society calls a prodigal son because his parents had had a hard time controlling him. He even served a prison term for fighting. One day, he beat my daughter and she ran home asking me for help. I thought, "I am a cultivator, I should follow Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance to handle the matter." That night, I went with my daughter to her home. I also visited my son-in-law's mother and his three uncles. I didn't use personal judgment to deal with my son-in-law; instead, I used the Fa's guidance to educate him and told him how to be a good person. He was so moved by my advice that he admitted his mistakes and promised not to do it again. I had spent just over two hours resolving this conflict and had also validated the Dafa. Afterward, one of his uncles said to me, "No wonder Falun Dafa practitioners are truly different from other people."

After this incident, my son-in-law's family transformed from first being opposed to Dafa to now praising it. My son-in-law's father is the director of a public security bureau. In the past, he had slandered Dafa's good name using Communist Party slogans. Through my persistence in explaining the facts about Falun Dafa to him, he not only promised to stop slandering Dafa, he also quit the CCP. My son-in-law found employment and has changed from a prodigal son to a productive citizen. Furthermore, he even helps me clarify the truth and distribute booklets of the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party. My son-in-law now treats his parents well. Most recently, my daughter gave birth to a son. The villagers told me, "Since you have come back, your son-in-law has made a big transformation; now he is a respectable person." His elder sister and three uncles also withdrew from the CCP. I attribute all this to the almighty virtue of Dafa's powers. I am very grateful for Teacher's help; now my son-in-law's family members are saved.

In the process of doing the three things, Teacher has helped me save all types of people--teachers, university students, farmers, public security personnel, county cadres and officer workers. Yet, there was one I could not get through to. She was a very good friend, an old high school mate of mine of more than 30 years. She has given me an indescribable friendship that was especially helpful during those years when I was imprisoned. She helped care for my family and supported my youngest daughter through her middle and high school years. She even visited me twice in prison. She also used a personal connection to ask prison authorities for my release. However, she was so very stubborn and would not listen to me when I clarified the truth about Falun Gong and would not withdraw from the Party either. Whenever we got together, she would not permit me to talk about Falun Gong. She often told me: "I believe in my Chinese Communist Party and you believe in your Falun Gong, neither should try to interfere with the other." Whenever the subject came up, we would end up parting on bad terms. Finally, I understood that this situation was coming from my being immersed in the emotion of friendship.

Teacher said:

"Cultivation practice must take place through tribulations so as to test whether you can part with and care less about different kinds of human sentimentality and desires. If you are attached to these things, you will not succeed in cultivation. Everything has its karmic relationship. Why can human beings be human? It is because human beings have sentimentality. They live just for this sentimentality. Affection among family members, love between a man and a woman, love for parents, feelings, friendship, doing things for friendship, and everything else all relate to this sentimentality. Whether a person likes to do something or not, is happy or unhappy, loves or hates something and everything in the entire human society comes from this sentimentality. If this sentimentality is not relinquished, you will be unable to practice cultivation. If you are free from this sentimentality, nobody can affect you. An everyday person's mind will be unable to sway you. What takes over in its place is benevolence, which is something more noble." (Zhuan Falun)

Aren't Teacher's words also directed at me? I realized the reason I could not save her for all these years: I had not abandoned my attachment of sentimentality. From then on, I tried to save her just like any other person. I started to eliminate all the Communist evil spirits in other dimensions that could possibly block her mind from receiving the truth about Falun Dafa. With compassion, I wrote her a long letter. Last November, I paid her another visit. This time she asked me to help her withdraw from the Party. I was so very happy that she had finally chosen a glorious future for herself.

From these two incidents I have been enlightened as a practitioner, that we need to do things from the perspective of the Fa. When we do things in accordance with the principles of the Fa, things will turn out well.
