Manifesting the Power of Dafa to Protect Oneself
(Minghui.org) Master taught us:
“I’ll tell you, for years I have been continually saying that Dafa disciples’ abilities are tremendous, yet many people don’t believe this since those abilities were not allowed to be seen. Under the effect of righteous thoughts, everything around you, as well as you yourself, will undergo changes. Yet you have never thought to give it a try.” (“20th Anniversary Fa Teaching”)
“When bad people in this world appear to be evil, and might act so ferocious, that’s because there are evil entities behind them propping them up. Eliminate those evil entities and that person wouldn’t be able to muster that ferocity anymore.” (“20th Anniversary Fa Teaching”)
Telling People about Falun Dafa
I went out to clarify the truth to people about Falun Dafa and the persecution during the afternoon of December 2, 2015. I initially persuaded four or five people to quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its organizations. Later, I was walking by a tree nursery and saw a dozen workers digging up a tree to move it elsewhere. I went over to one of the workers and started talking to him about Falun Dafa and the persecution.
After listening for a while, he told me, “I like to hear Dafa practitioners talk, and what you are saying is true. So far, over 18,000 high level-corrupt officials have been arrested, but they only account for two percent of the corrupt officials. It looks like there are no officials in the Party who are not corrupt! This time the Party is doomed.”
I asked him if he had ever joined the Party or any of its organizations. He told me he had joined the Young Pioneers and the Youth League. I explained the nature of the Party and its organizations to him, and I advised him to quit any and all of its organizations.
He replied, “You practitioners bring out the goodness of people, and you are helping us to avoid disasters. Please help me quit the CCP's organizations."
I went over to another worker and started telling him about Falun Dafa. A different worker started shouting from far away, “Stop talking. Our boss is coming soon to take you to the police.” I was focusing on saving lives and was not scared. Two armed police officers walked by the tree nursery at that moment, and I was not moved. I kept on talking.
Soon after, their boss was approaching in a black car, and the worker who was shouting continued shouting, “Our boss is coming to arrest you!” I was still not moved and kept talking to the worker. The car drove by quickly and kept going without stopping. It was just as Master said, “…just by having your heart unaffected you will be able to handle all situations.” (“Eliminate Your Last Attachment(s)” from Essentials for Further Advancement II)
He Refused to Accept What I Was Saying
He saw that the police and the boss did not interfere, so he ran toward me. Before he came I had already persuaded the worker to quit the Youth League and the Young Pioneers. I calmly asked, “How are you?” and then asked him, “Did you ever join the Party or its affiliated organizations? If so, I suggest that you quit both of them. You can then ensure a good future for yourself.”
He replied, “I joined the Party while I was in the military. How dare you ask me to quit the Party! You are anti-party, and I will take you to the police.”
“Falun Dafa is a highly moral cultivation practice, and Dafa practitioners are good people who cultivate Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance,” I said. “The CCP is an evil organization with a nature of deception and violence. It has created one violent movement after another since it took power, and it has killed 80 million Chinese people. They slaughtered students in Tiananmen Square in 1989 and started persecuting Falun Dafa practitioners in 1999. They have arrested tens of millions of Falun Dafa practitioners and killed millions of practitioners. They have even taken organs from practitioners while they are still alive and sold their organs for profit. Please tell me, is this a good political party?”
He said, “I do not believe you. You are anti-party. I'm taking you to the police!”
I Defended Myself with Dafa’s Supernormal Power
I was not scared; I advised him not to do anything evil and that he would receive retribution if he did. His facial color turned blue from anger, he gritted his teeth and screamed, “I’ll now call the police here to arrest you.”
At that moment, I asked Master for protection and sent forth righteous thoughts in my mind. I said, “Don’t do anything evil,” and I did the movement of “Vajra Toppling a Mountain” (a movement in the first set of Falun Dafa exercises). As I pushed my hands out gently, he flew up in the air, with his four limbs pointing upward he fell on his back into a hole in the ground. He got up, clenched his fists again and ran toward me. I again did “Vajra Toppling a Mountain” to guard myself, and he flew up in the air again and fell on his back into the hole.
He got up again, and like a cornered animal, he ran toward me with a twisted facial expression. With the sound of "bang," he punched me in my chest. However, I, am an older person in my 70's, and did not feel any pain. When he wanted to hit me again, I did another gesture of “Vajra Toppling a Mountain.” He flew up in the air a third time, and he fell onto his back into a different hole.
His three violent attempts ended in failure. He crawled out of the hole and seemed dejected; he returned to digging up the tree.
With Strong Righteous Thoughts, We Can Manifest the Power of Dafa
In this situation, I truly experienced the power and miraculous nature of Dafa. I truly believe that as long as we have strong righteous thoughts, Master’s law bodies and righteous divine beings protect us all the time. And as long as we have strong righteous thoughts, we are able to use the supernormal powers Master has given us.
When we encounter situations in which bad people are interfering with practitioners clarifying the truth about Falun Dafa and the persecution, we should remember to ask Master for strengthening and protection. And we can try to use our supernormal abilities to protect ourselves. We should try our best to save more people in what time we have left.
