(Minghui.org) In the summer of 2006, a relative of mine, who is also a practitioner, was arrested because she was distributing the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party. Her home was raided and she was taken to the local police department.
After I heard about it, I notified other practitioners, so we could all send forth righteous thoughts for her. I also sent forth righteous thoughts focused on the local police department for a long time to reinforce her and to eliminate the evil that was persecuting her.
She was released the next day. When I went to see her, I asked, “Did the police release you unconditionally?” She hesitated a second and said, “When the police asked me where those Nine Commentaries came from, I told them that I picked them up on the street.”
A Test for Me
The policemen threatened her that if she refused to tell them, she would never go home. She still refused to tell, but her uncle who was visiting her said, “I will tell you. So and So gave those to her.” He revealed my name.
When I heard that, my heart sank a little, but my righteous thoughts prevailed. I did not resent the man who revealed my name--the authorities were pressuring him and he was concerned about his niece. I would search within. Perhaps I had not done well myself. I only follow Master's arrangement. Looking back, I did not study Fa in depth then and did not completely negate the old force arrangements.
My relative still had half a bag full of the Nine Commentaries that the police did not get, and she offered them to me. I took the bag and did not have any thoughts of fear that the police would follow me or raid my home. I gave all the books out the very next day.
Dealing with Fear
But later I noticed the fear in me would sometimes surface. When this happened I would send forth righteous thoughts for long periods of time to negate the persecution and eliminate the evil. I would also ask myself, “Did I do what Master asked?” The answer was, "Yes." “Did I do anything wrong?” The answer was, "No!" If that was the case, no police officer would arrest me. We are here to verify the Dafa and save sentient beings. The evil persecution is absolutely not allowed.
Several days later, I had a dream. I was walking on a wood floor, stepped on a broken piece, and almost fell into a trap, but I leaped over it. I thought my tribulation was over.
But my fear was not completely eliminated. Another fellow practitioner was later arrested. Her relative helped get her released. She told me that she heard the police mention my name. I thought, "No matter what they say, I only follow Master's arrangement. I did not make a mistake. I do not acknowledge any other arrangement." I began sending forth righteous thoughts to eliminate the evil.
When my fellow practitioner (and relative) moved out of town, she said that police from our local station had followed her and worked with the police there. When I heard that, I knew I still had not completely eliminated my fear, I still did not let go of the attachment to life and fear of death. My thought was that I do not want anything, I only follow Master, and I would completely eliminate all evil. I am a Dafa practitioner, what I did was the most righteous things, nobody is qualified to test me. In the end, the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) was not able to persecute me.
"Nobody Will Be Able to Touch You"
The CCP already knew my name and involvement--why didn't they come after me? That was because the old forces could not seize upon that attachment. It did not dare. It was because:
“When disciples have ample righteous thoughts
Master has the power to turn back the tide” (“The Master-Disciple Bond” from Hong Yin Vol. II)
From this event, I understood further what Master said:
“If a cultivator can truly let go of [the fear of] death, then that death will forever be far removed from you.” ("Teaching the Fa at the 2004 International Fa Conference in New York")
It is the absolute truth. If you believe it, you need to see if you are able to do it. If you can, Master will protect you, and nobody will be able to touch you.
