Handcuff Opened Miraculously, Letting Go of Resentment
(Minghui.org) In 2005, I was released from an illegal imprisonment. My husband not only refused to pick me up at the forced labor camp, he did not even let me return to our home. He said that we were divorced, but I had never received any divorce papers. Eventually, my second oldest brother took me to his home. Later, I rented an apartment.
In 2006, I met a daughter of my father-in-law’s sister. She told me that her mother, a diabetic in poor health, had now come down with hemiplegia. Upon hearing this, I decided to visit her and tell her the facts about Falun Gong. I wanted her to remember the words “Falun Dafa is good” and “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” Because my father-in-law’s younger brother also lives in a nearby village, I decided to visit them both.
As I was getting ready, I began to worry. Would they refuse to see me because my husband and I had been divorced for four or five years? On second thought, I had to do this to help them have a good future. Moreover, they had a predestined relationship with me. When I was married to their son, they were very nice to me and worried about me. Now that I had obtained the Fa, how could I not tell them about the practice? I must go. I reminded myself, “I will not talk about any personal grudge. I will just tell them the facts about the persecution and the preciousness of Falun Gong.” I asked Master to strengthen my righteous thoughts.
The day before I left, a fellow practitioner asked me to help her find a plumber. I asked myself, “Is this because I should cancel the visit, or is it interference?” I reasoned, “If the purpose for my visit is to justify my actions, then I should not go and the repairman wouldn't be willing to wait for my return. If my heart is pure and the purpose of my visit is to provide them with a good future, the repairman will not have time now and I know I should go visit my father-in-law’s sister.” I told myself, “I am going there to save people; I will not talk about any personal matter.”
The next day I went to find the repairman, who said he was busy and would repair the pipe the day after. Thus, I bought some gifts, packed some truth-clarifying materials about Falun Gong, and took the bus to see my father-in-law’s sister.
I used paper currency with truth-clarifying words on it to buy the bus ticket. I also passed out truth-clarifying material along the way. This was the first time I had ever taken a bus to that location, and I didn’t know where to get off. Just then, a woman started to chat with me and asked where I was going and whom I was visiting. I told her that I was visiting an aunt and the place I was visiting. She told me to get off at the crossroad ahead and head south. She even told the bus driver to stop at the crossroad. I truly felt that Master was next to me, encouraging me and taking care of me.
When I arrived, I called “Aunt.” The door opened and my father-in-law’s sister invited me in. Since she was not very mobile, I assisted her. After some chitchat, I got to the point.
I told her that Master teaches Falun Gong so people can be saved, that Falun Gong teaches people to be good, that practitioners do not kill, and that practitioners think of others first and aren't at all like what was being said on TV.
She asked me, “Do you hate your mother-in-law and father-in-law?” I said, “No, I do not blame them. They are being deceived. As a cultivator, I need to get rid of any resentment.” I continued, “I heard that your health is not so good, so I just came to see you. You were very kind to me and worried about me. Now that I practice Falun Gong, I want to tell you the wonders of Falun Gong. I want to share that with you.” I took out some brochures and gave them to her. She said, “I have these already. Someone slipped them under my door.”
She started to talk about my husband. I told her, “Let’s not talk about those things. Let’s just talk about Falun Gong.” I told her about the importance of withdrawing from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). I asked her if she had heard that withdrawing would keep one safe when the CCP disintegrates. She replied, “I see! I joined the Communist Youth League, so please help me quit using my real name.” I also told her, “Sincerely recite ‘Falun Dafa is Good’ and ‘Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.’ This is good for your recovery. You have withdrawn from the CCP and understand that Falun Gong is good. You are blessed. My Master will protect you.” She was very moved and said, “Thank you. Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” Her eyes were red as she said, “Your Master is very good, and has such a good disciple. You learned Falun Gong, or else you would not have come and visited me.”
She said, “Your cousin told me that you had learned Falun Gong and that, in order to raise your level, you will kill anyone close to you, that you don’t have a life anymore, etc.” I asked her if she believed that. She said, “I did believe it. But I see you like this now; it is different from what your cousin told me. I don’t believe that anymore.” She said, “I see you really pay attention to details. You know that I'm a diabetic and cannot eat sweets, so you brought things with no sugar. Everything you brought is good for my health. Not like your cousins—they don’t care so much. They buy things with dairy and sweets. They just bring it and don’t care if I can eat it or not.” I told her, “Our Master tells us to think first of others, even in small matters.” She said, “Thank you to your Master, Falun Dafa is truly good.” I saw that she understood the facts, understood that Falun Gong is being persecuted, and the CCP had falsely accused Falun Gong.
I told her, “Aunt, I want to visit my uncle. I haven’t been there for years and don’t know if I can find it.” She was glad that I wished to visit my uncle, so she said, “Good! It is so nice of you to think of us. He will be very happy to see you.” She gave me the details on how to get there.
When I got there, I saw my uncle was ready to lock the door. I said, “Uncle, do you still remember me?” He said, “Yes, yes, why are you here?” I told him that I had come for a visit. He immediately opened the door and invited me in.
I told him, “I am here to tell you the facts about Falun Gong. Please do not believe the evil Party's propaganda. The Party is framing and persecuting Falun Gong.” He said, “I know Falun Gong is good, I am not against it.”
I asked him if he had joined the CCP or any of its affiliated organization. He said, “No, I never went to school, never joined anything.” I said, “That’s good. Those who once joined need to withdraw now.” I also told him that reciting “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” frequently would bring him blessings. He cheerfully replied, “OK, I will recite, 'Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance' is good every day.”
After a while, his wife came back. I first greeted her; then I also told her the facts about Falun Gong. My aunt doesn’t read either. She told me to write “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” on a piece of paper so that she could tell her son and daughter-in-law to recite the phrases, too. My uncle told her, “She is still thinking of us and came to visit us. I know that she would not have come if it weren't for her practicing Falun Gong.” Then he asked me, “Am I right? Falun Gong's Master told you to come visit us?” I said, “My Master told me to come and tell you the facts about Falun Gong. Once you understand the truth, you will be saved by Dafa.” Upon hearing this, he said, “Thank you, Falun Gong Master.”
Handcuffs Opened Miraculously
Last year, I studied the Fa less and so my xinxing was not that good. I had strong attachments to fear and doing things. Several times, I had a misunderstanding with a fellow practitioner. As a result, the evil forces took advantage of my loophole. Police monitored and then arrested me.
The police officers grabbed my key and broke into my and a fellow practitioner’s home. They illegally searched our homes and arrested us. We were taken to a brainwashing center. By then, I had become aware of my attachments and human notions. I asked Master to strengthen my righteous thoughts. I kept sending righteous thoughts to eliminate the evil in other dimensions and negate the old forces’ arrangements and the resulting persecution. I didn't want other practitioners implicated because I didn’t do well. At the same time, I asked Master to save me and the fellow practitioner.
In the evening, the police officer in charge interrogated me. I refused to cooperate with him. I asked him why they had arrested me and he said something that didn't make any sense, “Someone reported you, saying that you were running around all over with things.” I denied his statement and refused to cooperate.
The fellow practitioner and I were detained in the same cell and two police officers monitored us. The fellow practitioner had strong righteous thoughts and held no fear. She indicated that I should walk away. But I was afraid and worried that we would be beaten if police recaptured us. With Master’s strengthening of my thoughts and encouragement from the fellow practitioner, I eliminated my fear. The two officers fell asleep. I was wearing high heels and was handcuffed. The other practitioner walked out first and I followed. I kept saying “Master, Master” in my heart. At that moment, I saw the other practitioner was already far away. I immediately enlightened, “Master is hinting that I should not be afraid because we are walking in another dimension. The police couldn't catch us.” There were three dogs at the brainwashing center that kept barking at the gate. But with help from Master, we left the brainwashing center.
We first hid in an alley to avoid the police. I thought that the handcuffs were very inconvenient. They then fell off my left hand but not my right. The other practitioner was afraid I would get hurt and told me not to worry. She suggested that I cover my hand with a cloth. I said it could come off. Then I lightly touched the handcuff and it came off. We were very happy, “Wonderful, thank you Master!” Again I really felt Master was just next to us.
After this experience, I truly felt that all Dafa disciples must study the Fa more, use the Fa as teacher, and cultivate diligently.
Thank you, Master!
Thank you, fellow practitioners!
