6. Quitting the CCP with Determination
When my supervisor talked with me for the fourth time, he said, “I heard you also interact with people in other cities. How about I change your job and move you to a prison? Room and board will be provided, but you are not allowed to go out.” I replied, “You cannot restrict my freedom since I have not done anything wrong. It is a basic human right for one person to visit another.” He told me that I had to obey the decision since it was from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). I told him, “Since the CCP does not allow practicing Falun Gong, I will quit the Party.” Then I took a piece of paper on the desk and wrote, “After being mistreated numerous times for practicing Falun Dafa as a CCP member, I now formally declare my withdrawal from the Party.”
At that moment, I had no fear at all and neither did I care about imprisonment. With strong determination, I gave my supervisor and the others present the paper and walked out of the office. They followed me out and said, “This will not work, we will all be in big trouble if you quit the CCP. Please take it back.” I replied, “No, I really mean it.” They dragged me back to the office and my supervisor said, “All right then, we will not bother you anymore. Your job change was a decision from the CCP committee and not my personal decision. You can go and we will not restrict your freedom. You can still live in your home as usual.” By then, I realized the situation was just like what Master mentioned in Hong Yin Volume II, “If thoughts are righteous, evil will collapse.”
I experienced another form of persecution after my retirement. That is, the local police occasionally asked me to go to meetings at designated places. I said to them, “I am affiliated with my employer, not you. I will not join your meetings.” I did not want to yield to the evil nor follow their instructions. I also discussed this with a practitioner and he agreed with my stance.
One day, I went to my workplace after clarifying the truth to people for two hours on the street. I found the person in charge of persecuting Falun Dafa and said to him, “I am already retired, but you still ask the local police to bother me.” After contacting the local police and confirming this, he told them to stop doing this.
In this way, nobody bothered me anymore. But the person in charge of persecuting Falun Dafa at my workplace wanted me to pay the CCP membership fees during the last several years. I told him I had written a statement that I quit the CCP and would not pay. He said, “Your statement does not count and I have discarded it.” I replied, “That is your issue. For me, I have nothing to do with the CCP anymore.” He thought for a while and said, “Then, you may need to follow a formal procedure to quit the CCP.” I agreed to do so. He asked me why I was quitting the CCP and I replied, “For practicing Falun Gong, I was mistreated many times. Now, by quitting the CCP, I can continue to be a good person with dignity.” I also said, “For your own good, I also hope that you would consider another job or you could at least try to protect these innocent practitioners as you will have a good future by doing so. Falun Dafa practitioners are doing things for you, even at the expense of their own lives. If you choose to commit bad deeds, even your family will have to endure retribution. There have already been many cases of this. Please think about it.” After hearing these words, the person-in-charge suddenly turned towards the police agents in the office and said, “Please learn from him while pointing at me. His words are full of wisdom and we have to respect him.”
Later I asked for a private conversation with him and he agreed. I told him, “I never gave up practicing Falun Dafa. As you know, the CCP did not give us any opportunity to clarify these issues, but instead suppressed practitioners to the extreme. I am risking my own life telling you this. I also hope you can understand us and no longer mistreat us. By protecting practitioners, you are also doing something good for yourself. I will not harbor negative thoughts about you even if you arrest me now, but I do hope you think this over.” He replied, “I know you are a good person. I will retire soon anyway. I do know what is good and what is bad. Please take care of yourself and be safe.”
In Hong Yin Volume II, Master said,
“The paths of cultivation are varied
But none is outside the Great Law.” (“Unimpeded”)
Here I would like to share some miracles I have experienced in my cultivation.
I had a dream one night, in which I called my son by his pager. (I did not remember his pager number since I seldom used it, but in the dream, I could remember his number clearly.) However, the operator said, “You cannot reach him because he had an accident.” After waking up, I told this to my wife and my son. Since my son had a trip that day, my wife and I asked him to go by train. We also asked him to call us after arriving at the destination. He did as we asked and returned home safely in the afternoon.
Two days later, my son had another trip and he said he had to drive. I reminded him again and again, asking him to be careful. The next morning, my wife said our son had had an accident. I immediately went there. He was very fortunate since there were cliffs a few yards away both in the front and behind. As he was driving, a truck was heading towards him. He turned the wheel and luckily drove into a wheat field. When the car was sent to a repair shop, the technician said, “The driver must be dead with the car damaged like this.” When my son told him he was the driver and did not even have a scratch, the technician was shocked, “You must be blessed by a divine being. Otherwise, how could you escape such an accident?”
Here is another miracle. Not long after I began to practice, I saw the word Zhen (Truthfulness) in my left eye, Shan (Compassion) in my celestial eye, and Ren (Forbearance) in my right eye. Sometimes I could see a Buddha statue or a Taoist. When I tried to look closely, I could not see them anymore. In the summer, I was able to look at the sun for a long period of time between 8 and 9 am. The sun looked like a blue, round plate. I did not feel uncomfortable even after looking at the sun for 10 minutes.
One time, I told the facts of Falun Dafa to an 80-year-old retired soldier. He said the CCP gives him hundreds of yuan each month and his life is good. He also said bad words about Dafa. I told him not to do that, but he did not listen. When meeting him one month later, he said, “My mouth was deformed with lots of saliva. The doctor said it was facial paralysis and there is no cure.” I said, “Last time I told you not to swear at Falun Dafa, but you did not listen. Now this is retribution.” He replied, “I was wrong.” I reminded him that he needed to apologize sincerely. I asked him to quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations, but he said he had not joined any of them. I also told him to recite “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” One month later, he saw me again and he was very happy, “I am all right now and I did not even take any medicine. Thank you very much.” I told him not to thank me, but to thank Falun Dafa's Master Li.
Once a 78-year-old practitioner was ill and his children sent him to the hospital for treatment. The doctor told his family to prepare for a funeral. I heard about this and went to visit him. He was in a coma. I whispered in his ear, “Please look inside to see if you have done anything wrong. You can also ask Master to help you overcome this tribulation.” His children said the doctor had told them to prepare for the funeral. I said, “Your father will be all right.” His son made a bet with me, saying he would practice Falun Dafa if his father recovered. I played Master's audio lecture to this practitioner and asked his family to recite “Falun Dafa is good” in their minds. The next day, the practitioner woke up and requested to go home one week later. After he recovered, his son began to read Zhuan Falun. This practitioner has been able to clarify the truth to others again as usual.
Above are my understandings and sharing. Please let me know if anything is inappropriate.
