Encountering My Enemies
(Minghui.org) I was riding around on my bicycle, looking for anyone whom I could talk to about Falun Gong. A tall man was walking ahead of me. I rode toward him, and when I was by his side, I asked, “Hi there, do you know about the movement to quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its affiliated organizations in order to keep safe?”
He turned around, and I saw that he was the former leader of the Domestic Security Division who had persecuted and mistreated me for six years. Because of him, I almost died, and my family was nearly torn apart.
However, I did not feel hatred toward him and did not feel any different about him than everyone else. I calmly asked, “Do you recognize me?” He said yes, and I said, “Do you realize that you were fooled by the CCP?” He replied that I was still confused.
He Lowered His Head
I told him that it was he who was still confused and said, “You persecuted Falun Gong for so many years. Did you ever see even one practitioner who had burned himself or killed others? Did any one of them take a bribe or commit any bad deeds? It is the CCP that commits bad deeds and takes people’s money, not Falun Gong. Has any Falun Gong practitioner ever taken revenge against you because you persecuted them for so many years? Can you tell me, which one of them did not have a kind heart?”
This man had persecuted nearly 1,000 Falun Gong practitioners over a ten-year period, through arrests, brainwashing sessions and inflicting other harm. He lowered his head and had nothing to say.
I told him that I was once hit by a drunk driver and knocked down. The hood of his car was damaged. My watch and necklace were broken, but I was not injured. The driver was so scared that he tried to give me money.
Yet, I told the driver, “My Master told me to be a good person and live by the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. Any true Falun Gong practitioner will not take money. I don’t want anything from you except for you to say a kind word about Falun Gong.”
The former captain left in a hurry before I could finish my story. I called out to him that I wished him well, and to stay safe and healthy like me.
The Person Who Reported Me to the Authorities
In July 2014 I went to the countryside to deliver information about Falun Gong. On a road along a village, I talked to two elderly people who were partially deaf and gave them informational materials about Falun Gong. A middle-aged man who was reading a newspaper overheard me and reported me to the local police station. My house was subsequently ransacked, and I was detained for 15 days.
I went to that village again after I was released. I met the man who had reported me. He was shocked to see me. I greeted him with a smile: “Hi, do you know about quitting the CCP to stay safe?”
He hesitated for a while and then said, “I do.”
I told him, “Falun Gong has spread to over 100 countries and regions. Falun Gong requires its followers to be good people and live according to the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. The people who followed Jiang Zemin, the former head of the CCP, to persecute Falun Gong are receiving retribution. The CCP is doomed by heaven. I hope you will not commit any more bad deeds.”
He replied, “I am a good person.”
“You are a good person, but you are fooled by the CCP,” I said. "You'd better stay away from the CCP to avoid misfortune.” He told me he had belonged to the Young Pioneers, one of the CCP youth organizations, and he agreed to quit it.
