Hiding Dafa Books Is Not Important, Belief in Master and Dafa Is the Key
(Minghui.org) A few days ago, the local police ransacked the homes of Falun Dafa practitioners in our area. They confiscated Dafa books and informational materials. They were retaliating for criminal complaints filed by practitioners against Jiang Zemin, the former head of the Chinese Communist regime.
When I was working on the farm on August 22, 2015, a fellow practitioner came to alert me about the police raid. I rushed home to hide all my Falun Dafa materials, but there was not a single place that could be considered truly safe.
I then recalled Master’s teaching:
“If every Dafa disciple can think and act righteously as he goes about things and can look at things with righteous thoughts under any circumstance, none of you will become afraid when facing persecution. If that is how you are, who would dare to persecute you!” (“Teaching the Fa in San Francisco, 2005”)
I notified fellow practitioners and returned to the farm to send righteous thoughts.
Master also said, "However strong the righteous thoughts are, that's how great the power is." (“Also In A Few Words” from Essentials for Further Advancement II)
I held my hands in the heshi position in front of my chest and asked Master for strength and to protect Dafa disciples from harm. I eliminated the evil factors in the other dimensions and the Communist evil spirits and the old forces. I also asked Master to stop the police from committing any crime.
Protected by Master
The police arrived but couldn't get through the locked door. They asked my neighbor to call me twice, but I had turned my cell phone off. They told the village leader to look for me, but he couldn't find me.
I went back home in the evening. The village leader came to remind me that I needed to keep the Dafa books in a safe place, but there was no safe place safe to hide them.
The village leader asked me, “Are there any books left?”
“Not really,” I responded. He then called the police.
When the police arrived, I greeted them as I would a guest and kept sending righteous thoughts. I also held immense compassion in my heart when I answered their questions. There was no confrontation, and they left without finding anything.
Actually, it was not important if the books were in a safe place. Believing in Master and Dafa is the key. As long as we have strong thoughts and firmly believe in Master and Dafa, we will not be harmed.
Master said, “To tell you the truth, the entire cultivation process for a practitioner is one of constantly giving up human attachments.” (Zhuan Falun).
I realized that I should let go of my fear and improve myself.
In fact, every step we take, we are protected by Master. We could not accomplish anything if we were not guided by Dafa.
