Cooperating with Other Practitioners to Fulfill Our Vows
(Minghui.org) The police stations and village committees in the local areas recently hired people to remove Falun Dafa posters and banners from public areas. Monitors were stationed outside Falun Dafa practitioners' homes, and whoever reported practitioners to the police were rewarded. Police cars were on patrol everywhere. The atmosphere was horrific.
Practitioners shared about the situation. One said, “No matter how rampant the evil is, we will not be moved. We will do what we are supposed to do and negate the old forces' arrangements.”
Letting Everybody Know about Dafa
“Dafa disciples, don’t forsake the magnificent responsibility that has been bestowed upon you in Fa-rectification, and even less should you disappoint those beings, as you are now their only hope for entering the future. For this reason, all Dafa disciples, students both new and veteran, should get to work and begin comprehensively clarifying the truth. This is especially so for the Dafa disciples in mainland China: each must come out and clarify the truth, bringing it to every field and valley, mountain and hill, not omitting a single area where there are people.” (“Let Go of Human Attachments and Save the World’s People,” from The Essentials of Diligent Progress III)
There were no practitioners in our neighboring six villages, so we formed teams of twos, each to distribute informational materials about Falun Dafa by motorcycle. Since some villagers like to keep dogs, we sent forth righteous thoughts to prevent them from barking, and we left materials outside the villagers' homes.
We divided each village into subsections according to the map and covered each section in turn. We didn’t leave out a single household and have delivered materials to those villages four or five times over the past several years.
We then started to talk to the villagers face to face about Falun Dafa and the persecution. When it was not the harvesting season, local practitioners took Dafa materials and DVDs to the villagers. They visited each household and clarified the facts to whomever they met on the way. If there was no one in the house, they left a booklet outside.
One practitioner, who lives in a remote area, had to take care of her 90-year-old mother-in-law. She always arranged her time well and never missed visiting the households.
If required, another practitioner came on short notice and worked well with the others. Those who were not able to visit the villages formed teams to send forth righteous thoughts at home.
One day, our two teams went to distribute calendars with Falun Dafa information on them in a village. The old forces in other dimensions interfered with me, and a large sense of fear swept over me. My heart was trembling. Villagers looked at us suspiciously and avoided us. I notified other practitioners to send forth righteous thoughts for us.
Within ten minutes, I felt the environment change and the sky became clear. We then visited every household and spoke to the people there.
People Quit the CCP
A dozen people agreed to quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) that day, and some wanted to quit after reading the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party.
Some people were not nice at first but agreed to quit the CCP after they listened to us.
A young man tried to drive a practitioner and me away from their home as soon as we mentioned Falun Dafa. I turned and started to leave, but the other practitioner didn't move. He told the young man about the self-immolation hoax on Tiananmen Square and why people had to quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations. I sent forth righteous thoughts while he was talking. The man changed his attitude completely and agreed to quit the CCP.
One day, this practitioner, his wife, and I went to a village to distribute Falun Dafa calendars. When we came to a shop, many people there asked for the calendars. The practitioner and his wife started to talk to them, but I became afraid as I thought that somebody was going to report us to the police. I urged my companions to leave, but they continued talking and even went inside the shop to talk to more people. I strongly suggested that we should leave. They did not complain or blame me, but said simply that it was “only 12 o'clock.”
When they went out to talk to people the next time, they still asked me to go with them. I was very thankful. They helped me and encouraged me. I’ve now managed to get rid of a lot of my fear.
Helping to Rescue Fellow Practitioners
Two practitioners did not come home after they went to clarify the facts in a village one night. One of the practitioner's wife feared the worst and asked several other practitioners to go to the village and see what happened. We soon came across a police car with the two practitioners inside.
I drove my motorcycle to tell the practitioner's wife. It was dark, and there was some road work. I didn't see them, and fell into a ditch with my motorcycle. I injured my hand, but didn't pay any attention to it. I managed to get my bike out of the ditch and carried on my journey. I would not let the old forces interference prevent me from doing what I needed to do.
Both of the practitioners’ wives went to the detention center to demand the release of their husbands the next day. They were able to see their husbands at the detention center.
On the third day, one of the practitioner's wife, relatives, and village officers went to demand the release of the practitioners at the police station. Over a dozen practitioners sent forth righteous thoughts outside. One of the practitioners sent the contact details for the staff at the police station to the Minghui website for overseas practitioners to call.
Both practitioners were released on the fifth day.
Working Well Together as One Body
Practitioners started to file criminal complaints with the Supreme People's Court and Procuratorate against Jiang Zemin in 2015 for initiating the persecution of Falun Dafa. My husband and I wrote our complaints in one night. I asked my husband if he dared to appear in court if our complaint were brought to trial. He replied “Yes” with determination.
All of the local practitioners and some of their spouses filed criminal complaints against Jiang. One practitioner was worried, as he had been detained three times and had been imprisoned for seven years in total. Other practitioners shared with him and encouraged him. He finally sent his criminal complaint.
During the process of suing Jiang, practitioners helped each other and encouraged each other, forming a genuine one body. When the local post office refused to accept our mail, practitioners then traveled to other cities to send the complaints from there.
When we heard that some practitioners who lodged complaints against Jiang Zemin in other areas had been harassed by the police, our local practitioners sent forth righteous thoughts to negate the interference. We firmly believed in Master and the Fa.
“Just by staying unaffected you will be able to handle all situations.” (Teaching the Fa at the Conference in the Midwest-U.S.)
As such, not a single practitioner was harassed by the police in our area.
