Clarifying the Truth with a Practitioner's Righteous Thoughts
(Clearwisdom.net) We often read fellow practitioners' articles about their touching experiences using righteous thoughts to stop evil acts in the forced labor camps and prisons. This should help strengthen other practitioners' righteous thoughts to a certain degree. Some practitioners wrote about using righteous thoughts to negate the old forces' arrangements, directly eradicating all the evil things in other dimensions that persecute Falun Dafa.
I think it's important to save sentient beings who committed severe crimes and brought karma upon themselves due to the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) deceit, because they did not understand the truth about Dafa. This can then further reduce the losses to Dafa and practitioners. I'd like to share some of my personal experiences with my fellow practitioners.
In early April 2000, I went to Beijing to appeal for justice for Falun Dafa. Before the trip, I wrote down some experiences about how practitioners benefited physically and mentally after starting to practice Falun Gong and some suggestions on how to treat practitioners correctly. I sent the letter to the leaders where I worked, the city, province, and state. Then I brought a copy with me when I went to appeal at the complaints office of the State Council and the National People's Committee. There, however, officials illegally arrested and handcuffed me and other Falun Dafa petitioners.
I was detained at the Beijing Branch Office of my province. I was not allowed to eat, and all of my money was confiscated. The police shouted at and brutally beat me. At that time I didn't know how to send forth righteous thoughts, but I was very clear that appealing for Falun Dafa was legal and the proper channel to clarify the truth. I knew that practicing Falun Gong was not against the law, so I remained very calm and had no fear. Whenever I had a chance, I spoke to officials about the benefits of practicing Falun Gong. I calmly asked a policeman who claimed to have graduated from law school, "Is it right to handcuff me here, without a conviction or a formal charge? I know you are just following orders." After a while, he took all of the practitioners' handcuffs off. I was detained for seven days, and nobody ever shouted or beat me again. My employer sent people to pick me up and didn't give me any trouble.
In 2004, the CCP was about to hold a big conference. Some friends told me that there would be actions against Falun Gong practitioners and asked me to hide. I thought, "Why should I hide? I didn't do anything wrong." Later, the newly formed neighborhood committee posted a note on my door, asking me not to go out since somebody reported that I practiced Falun Gong. I thought that it was a good chance to clarify the facts about Dafa, so I took the note back to the neighborhood committee office and told them that I was the one who practiced Falun Gong. Then I talked to them about Falun Dafa. Three or four people present in the office at the time appeared stunned as they listened. They then told me that the order came from the police station sergeant and it wasn't what they really wanted to do, and I saw that they understood the truth. I then wrote a letter to the sergeant, signed with my real name and address, urging him to ease off persecuting Falun Gong practitioners. I had also sent truth clarification materials to the police station many times in the past. Nobody from these agencies has bothered me since.
Once when visiting my hometown, I went out during the night to clarify the truth about Falun Dafa. I was seen putting up a poster, and night watchmen ran out to catch me. I remained very calm, and, while walking away, I sent forth righteous thoughts to eliminate the evil factors behind them. After they finally caught up to me and I faced them, their vicious expressions were suddenly replaced by friendliness. They asked me not to post materials since it was kind of late, and then turned around and walked away. I went home safely after putting up another poster in a different place.
After so many years, I've experienced many miracles when sending righteous thoughts to eliminate the interference from illness, to break the Internet censorship, and to fix the equipment for the material production sites.
Master said in "Teaching the Fa in the City of Los Angeles:"
"What's important for cultivators is righteous thoughts. When you have strong righteous thoughts, you are able to withstand anything and do anything. That's because you are a cultivator: someone who is on a divine path and who is not controlled by the factors of ordinary people or low-level principles."
"... you are not in any way beings of the Three Realms, and you are no longer ordinary persons. That is why when your righteous thoughts are strong you can resolve any problem."
Let's believe in Master and the Fa, have righteous thoughts and righteous actions, and save more sentient beings.
