My Experience of Stopping Evil Acts with Righteous Thoughts
(Clearwisdom.net) Master said:
“When you are persecuted in any way you can use righteous thoughts to turn the tables on the bad people and stop the persecution. And this includes those who assault the students with punches and kicks: strong righteous thoughts can make the person's punches and kicks land on himself, or make the wicked policemen and the bad people lash out against each other, and they can transfer all the pain and injuries over to the wicked person or policeman who assaults you. But the premise is that you have strong righteous thoughts, no fear, and no human attachments, apprehension, or hatred; only when you're in that state will it be effective, and it will take effect as soon as your thoughts emerge.” (“Stop the Evil Acts with Righteous Thoughts”)
One night in June 2006, another practitioner and I went to several military compounds to post truth clarification fliers. When we had almost finished covering the area from the east unit to the west, we were discovered by a military officer. The other practitioner escaped, but I was taken to the guard duty room.
Suddenly, many people came with electronic batons and rubber sticks in their hands. They looked very fierce. However, I was calm and looked at them calmly while I silently recited the formulas for sending forth righteous thoughts. They ordered me to sit down on the floor, then called the 110 police. Right then, a young soldier kicked my lower back with all his might. Although I felt the impact of his kick, I didn't feel any pain, but the soldier fell down, holding his foot and moaning in pain. Another soldier yelled at me, lifted his foot, and was about to stomp on my toes. I thought, “Li Hongzhi is my Master who, in great mercy, created the whole universe.” Then I saw the soldier pull his foot back. Everyone present saw this, so the other soldiers holding the electronic batons and rubber sticks backed away and did not dare to treat me so roughly.
A moment later, the police came. They tried to trick me, telling me they would release me if I told them the name of the other practitioner. I kept silent and didn't cooperate with them, so next they tried threatening me, telling me I would be taken to the local police station or the criminal police team. I was not moved. Next they handcuffed my hands behind my back and prepared to take me to the district police station. With dignity, I walked to the police car. As I passed by I heard someone saying, “Good job, Falun Gong practitioner!”
Arriving at the police station, I stood up straight, and, with my eyes gently closed, I recited the formulas for sending righteous thoughts in my heart. Then, one officer smiled at me and asked, “What are you doing here?” Then he opened the handcuffs. They assumed that I was a destitute practitioner, so they kept asking where I came from and what the other practitioner’s name was. They claimed that once I told them, they would release me. They interrogated me until after midnight. Finally, I told them that I would not give them any information no matter how they pressured or threatened me. I told them I wanted to go to sleep.
I was taken to the station's detention room, which was separated from the police duty room at the one end of the room. At the other end, there was a window covered with iron bars. There were other detainees in the same room. I looked at the window and told myself that I would escape through there.
When dawn came, I decided that it was time to leave and that I would pass through the bars on the window. When I was just about to do this, a man in the detention room asked me, “What are you doing?” I said, “You should go to sleep.” Then he went to sleep. I couldn't pass through the bars initially, so I hesitated. However, I thought to myself, “This is not a place a practitioner should be, so I must leave.” With this thought, I immediately climbed on the balcony, stretched out my leg, and scrunched my body. I easily slipped through the bars and lightly jumped to the ground. I had escaped!
At that moment, it was time for the global sending forth of righteous thoughts. I knew this miracle happened only through Master's merciful care and the power of the righteous thoughts sent out by fellow practitioners all over the world. In my heart I said, “Thank you, Master! Thank you, fellow Dafa disciples!” Two years later, when Master's “Master-Disciple Grace” and “Stop the Evil Acts with Righteous Thoughts” were published, I suddenly realized that the sense of unspoken feelings and my experience of so easily getting out of this tribulation overnight was included in Master's Fa.
