There Is Nothing the Evil Can Do If Your Heart Stays Unaffected: The Experience of Rescuing a Fellow Practitioner
(Minghui.org) In August 2004, a fellow practitioner who was coordinating an informational materials storage site with me was illegally arrested. A family member transferred his Dafa books and audio cassettes to my place and told me that the police had been monitoring him for two months.
Hearing that made me fearful. I thought if the authorities had been monitoring him, they would find out about the storage site for our materials. I wondered how I could possible deal with so many books, consumables, and printing paper!
At this moment, I remembered what Master said: “Just by staying unaffected you will be able to handle all situations.” (“Teaching the Fa at the Conference in the Midwest-U.S.”) I thought: "If I stay unaffected, they can't do anything." I only moved a few books to another practitioners' homes and kept the rest in my home. I adjusted my thinking and held only one thought: Rescue the fellow practitioner ASAP.
I spoke with the fellow practitioner's wife and made a plan to rescue him. However, the wife changed her thinking very quickly, so I had to talk to her back and forth. I asked other practitioners to help send forth righteous thoughts, and I consulted with lawyers. I also met with someone I knew who worked at the police station where the practitioner was detained, and I clarified the truth to him. In the evenings I also often distributed truth-clarification materials near the detained practitioner's home and the police station.
I remember the day I went to see the person I knew at the police station. At the entrance I was asked for my ID, which unnerved me a bit. But at the very moment they checked my ID, I felt that I was so huge and those police officers were so tiny, and all my fear instantly disappeared. I knew that Master had strengthened me.
When I met the person I knew, I quickly told him why I was there, since he already knew I practiced Falun Dafa. I asked him if he could help get the detained practitioner released.
He said, “You were certainly bold to dare to come here to talk about Falun Gong.” He then asked why the fellow practitioner was arrested. I told him it was because of practicing Falun Dafa and urged him to seek help to get the practitioner released right away.
Then I talked to him about Falun Dafa. I told him that, in the past, feeding a monk could accumulate virtue and that, nowadays, helping a Falun Gong practitioner can gain an enormous amount of virtue.
He said he honestly didn't know anything about it but would try his best to help. He also assured me that he would ask the police not to beat the practitioner.
I said, “We will remember how you helped a Dafa disciple, and what you do will bring you good fortune.” When I walked out of the police station, I again felt a warm stream coming from my head and through my whole body. I am grateful for Master's merciful protection!
Three weeks later, the fellow practitioner left the detention center with righteous thoughts.
