Putting Myself Aside and Thinking Only of Others
(Minghui.org) I was home and heard a voice outside my door. Without much thought, I opened it, and four police officers rushed in.
“You should just practice Falun Gong at home and not write another letter of complaint about Jiang Zemin. You are simply making trouble for us. When you put the 'Falun Dafa is good' verses on your doors, we just ignored it,” said one of them.
“The Supreme People's Procuratorate ruled on May 1,2005, that all criminal complaints must be processed. Jiang Zemin is responsible for organ harvesting from living practitioners. I also suffered under the persecution. Shouldn't I sue him?”
Fear Must Be Eliminated
The police asked me who had helped me write my letter. I ignored them and said that I wrote the letter because Jiang had instigated the persecution.
They then said that they wanted to look around. They found a computer, four printers, a DVD burner, DVDs, and other items.
When I looked at the equipment, I felt a sense of fear, but immediately negated it. I used those items to do the most righteous work in the universe – stopping people from doing harm. Why should I be afraid? I must play a leading role and should not think that the equipment would be used as evidence against me. I asked Master to help me and to protect the equipment.
I searched inward and silently said to Master, “I was busy with the fall harvest and didn't pay attention to Fa study, nor did I send forth righteous thoughts enough.”
Master's words came to me in an instant:
“'I'm Li Hongzhi's disciple, I don't want other arrangements or acknowledge them'--then they won't dare to do that. So it can all be resolved.” (“Explaining the Fa During the 2003 Lantern Festival at the U.S. West Fa Conference”)
I asked Master to strengthen my righteous thoughts, so I could eliminate all interference from other dimensions that was influencing the police officers.
No Hatred in My Heart
One officer looked at Master's picture when he noticed that I had stopped speaking. I was sending forth righteous thoughts. He threatened to tear up the picture. I did my best to keep calm and continued to send forth righteous thoughts without any hatred. I only wished that they would not commit any sins against Falun Gong. They did not touch the photo of Master.
The officer spoke to me again. This time I was filled with righteous thoughts and kept Master's words in my mind,
“Should you have fear,it will seize upon youIf thoughts are righteous,evil will collapseThe cultivator’s mindis loaded with FaSend righteous thoughts,and rotten demons explodeGods walk the earth,validating the Fa”(“What’s to Fear?” from Hong Yin Vol. II)
They wanted to know who had given me the equipment, and I told them that I had bought it with earnings from farm work.
They then said that all my equipment showed that I must be the leader.
I told them, “We have no leaders in this area. Anyone can come and practice Falun Gong or leave as one wishes. It is a person's own choice to practice Falun Gong. If I ask you to practice Falun Gong now, would you dare to?”
I let them know that it was not wise to persecute practitioners. I had no fear and did not care if they took me to a detention center, because practitioners can save people wherever they go.
“If we don't tell you the facts about the persecution of Falun Gong, then you might commit crimes against its practitioners, and you will have to answer for it,” I said.
“Zhou Yongkang and Bo Xilai are typical examples. Most high-level CCP officials are corrupt, but why were only these two arrested? The answer is, they persecuted Falun Gong practitioners on top of their corruption. I don't want to see you suffer retribution. I hope that all of you will be able to understand the facts about Falun Gong.”
What I said was for their good. In the end, they changed their attitude. They left without confiscating anything.
I think that the good attitude the police left with was due to the mindset I had at that moment – I had put myself aside and only thought of their welfare.
