Helping Police Understand the Facts about Falun Dafa
(Minghui.org) I recently talked with several police officers who had learned the facts about Falun Dafa and the persecution, and had chosen not to comply with the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) persecutory policies.
They said that they received many WeChat messages daily, but few of them were about Falun Dafa. Most of the messages were about corruption, and the Tiananmen Massacre which occurred on June 4, 1989.
The police have to be careful however, as the internal control of the police force has become stricter in recent years, and officers will be penalized if they are involved in any sensitive topics in WeChat group discussions.
Changing Truth Clarification Tactics to Police
Most police officers are opposed to the Party tactics, but they dare not voice their opinions. Yet many of them are also opposed to Falun Dafa because they do not know the truth.
Nonetheless, they do not like being ordered to persecute Falun Dafa practitioners. They were merely following orders during the recent “knocking on doors” campaign, which also targeted other forbidden groups.
My take on the situation is that we should change our ways of dealing with police officers. We should tell them the basic facts about Falun Dafa and urge them to quit the Party, using techniques and talking points they can accept.
I wrote to the Minghui website about my latest experience with Chinese police, based on the current situation in our area.
Some practitioners moved to other cities after the police began the “knocking on doors” campaign, and have not returned home.
Reaction Based on Human Notions
Some practitioners did not go into hiding, but were scared, since they judged the situation with human notions. They spread messages among practitioners, saying that the situation would get worse as the 19th CCP National Congress approached.
Some even began altering their sending forth righteous thoughts by specifically targeting some politburo members who sided with Jiang Zemin, the former head of the communist regime.
I have a different understanding of the current situation. The knocking on doors campaign and the 19th National Congress occurred during a time that Master extended for practitioners to save sentient beings. A heavenly change cannot be decided by human beings. Master has reminded us many times that we should look at everything based on the Fa, and not based on human notions.
Maintaining a Peaceful State
Several police officers knocked on my door a few months ago. I decided to be calm and handle the situation like a divine being. I was able to maintain a peaceful state of mind, thanks to years of cultivation practice.
“Worlds being created by a god’s single thought.” (“Fa Teaching Given at the New York Fa Conference Celebrating the 25th Anniversary of Dafa’s Spreading”)
Master's Fa taught me that a practitioner's thoughts can be powerful, too.
I actually went to the neighborhood committee to clarify the truth and talk about the matter of knocking on doors and taking photographs. I asked them to remember that Falun Dafa is good, and that the proper understanding could save their lives during a disaster. All nine members of the committee said they could see my point.
Two days ago, a member of the neighborhood committee told me that an officer from the Political and Legal Affairs Committee had inquired about me. They told them that I was fine and they need not worry.
I thanked him and said he would be blessed for protecting a Falun Dafa practitioner, and would have a bright future.
Test for Practitioners
I also believe that the knocking on doors campaign was a test for practitioners. When a practitioner told a police officer, “I am still practicing Falun Dafa,” it becomes a message to the old forces to stop meddling.
I made an appointment with the director of our local 610 Office after I was released from prison late last year. His answer surprised me. He said he had committed serious sins toward Falun Dafa and wanted to seek help from practitioners. For that reason he was afraid to accept my visit.
I noticed that many grassroots level Party members did not want practitioners to see them as enemies, and hoped that they would forgive them. However, many practitioners still hold a negative and competitive attitude toward them, which has prevented these people from looking at Dafa positively.
Cultivation Is a Serious Matter
For me, the situation is fine, and has turned positive. However, some practitioners have not changed their attitudes.
My celestial eye saw that Master had recorded many things that diligent practitioners enlightened to while cultivating and validating the Fa.
My celestial eye also saw that the old forces had pushed some practitioners who had been practicing on and off in recent years to a place that is neither close to Dafa nor to an evil force environment.
Cultivation practice is a serious matter that is not based on luck. Cultivation practice is supernormal. Practitioners should look at everything based on the Fa, outside the boundary of human notions, and from a very high level.
