The Power of Righteous Thoughts
(Clearwisdom.net) One day last year, I visited a village to discuss the facts about Falun Gong with an older woman. Her son, a police officer, heard about this, arrested me, and took me to the local police station. Although he maintained a fierce expression, he listened as I explained the facts about Falun Dafa and the persecution.
I said, “I’m coming to save you. I am doing a good thing.” A young police officer hit me with the palm of his hand. I then started sending forth righteous thoughts.
He asked, “What are you doing?” I responded, “Eliminating the evil.” “What does that mean?” he asked. “You have some bad things on your body or an illness. Doing this can make you feel better.” They were all amazed.
I asked the policeman, “Do you dare to tell your mother that you are persecuting good people and losing virtue? Every mother wishes her child to do good and accumulate virtue. You aren't supposed to do such evil things.”
He nodded as he listened to me. I asked whether he was a member of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), to which he nodded again. I said, “In order to improve your future, you should quit the CCP right now.”
He nodded again. Because there were many people standing around, he was not able to say anything to me. But later, the other policeman also agreed to quit the CCP.
They later took me to have a physical examination. There were many people on the street as we drove by, so I took this opportunity arranged by Master to save people. Initially, my body felt weak and my voice was very quiet. I asked Master to give me a louder voice, since I wanted to save people. I told the policeman to lower the car windows, and then I cried out loudly to those nearby, “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good. Whoever listens to this and repeats it will receive wonderful returns.” I shouted out repeatedly. The policeman in the car soon started shouting along with me. I continued shouting out even in the hospital where I was brought for the physical exam. When the police officer tried to drag me along, I sat down on the ground and kept shouting.
When I was sent to a detention center, I clarified the truth continuously and tried to persuade detention center officials to quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations. From the beginning of my imprisonment, I held a hunger strike. My body lost more and more strength until I was too weak to erect my palm. In a dream I got a hint from Master to send forth righteous thoughts. Strengthened by Master, I sent forth righteous thoughts from 9:00 p.m. to 6:10 a.m.
The next morning at about 9:00 a.m., police officers were going to take me to a forced labor camp. During the physical examination I sent forth righteous thoughts to the exam machinery. The exam results didn't satisfy the forced labor camp and they refused to admit me. This again validated the power of sending forth righteous thoughts.
While clarifying the truth, we must eliminate all kinds of attachments. The more attachments we let go of, the more people we can save.
