Eliminating Fear and Successfully Clarifying the Facts at the Police Station
(Minghui.org) I began practicing Falun Dafa in February 2013, after which all my illnesses, including leukemia, disappeared within three months.
Afraid to be Converted
When I meet people I tell them that “Falun Dafa is good.” The police have tried to arrest me twice, ransacked my home and threatened my family, and demanded that they turn me in.
After some time I became scared to go home, in case the police were waiting to arrest me. Two other practitioners in our area were arrested around that time for distributing informational materials about Dafa.
I wanted to help them in some way, but did not know what to do. After giving it some thought, I went to the county detention center to clarify the facts about Falun Dafa.
On the way to the detention center, I continuously recited,
“Should you have fear,it will seize upon youIf thoughts are righteous,evil will collapseThe cultivator’s mindis loaded with FaSend righteous thoughts,and rotten demons explodeGods walk the earth,validating the Fa”(“What's to Fear,” from Hong Yin Vol. II)
My righteous thoughts became stronger by the time I entered the detention center. When I encountered the people in charge, I began by telling them about the practice and the persecution.
One person said, “Please leave, or we'll be converted by you.” I reassured them that I was not there to convert them, but to let them know that good people were being persecuted and that Dafa was good.
My experience at the detention center helped me understand that if we hold righteous thoughts, Teacher will protect us. Thus, clarifying the truth is not difficult, as danger is an illusion and fear should not exist.
I shared my understanding with other practitioners and suggested that we go to the police station to clarify the facts to the officers, since we encountered interference when we went out to talk to people or distribute materials.
Three of us went to the police station and talked to the officers about Dafa and the persecution. Our righteous actions shocked everyone. We were not arrested, and some said, “Falun Gong is so wonderful, why don't you practice at home? We won't care.”
“Your Compassion is Not Enough, You Should Study Harder!”
Another practitioner and I decided to go to the County Police Department to clarify the truth.
We first talked to a few people in charge of the Domestic Security Division. The conversation was going well, so I became a bit excited and shouted, “Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!”
My voice startled everyone. Someone shouted right back, “Who dares to say that here? Let's throw him in jail for at least 10 to 15 days!”
Soon after, police officers from the Domestic Security Division, 610 Office staff, and the deputy secretary of my village Chinese Communist Party (CCP) committee came and we all sat down in the conference room.
Someone began to ask questions while the deputy secretary took notes. I took this opportunity to tell them about my personal experience with the practice. They listened without interrupting.
Concerned that they might not agree with me, I began to talk louder. One person said, “You are speaking too loud, it scared me. Your compassion is not enough, you should study harder.”
I was startled by that comment. Wasn't Teacher giving me a hint? I replied, “Thank you for your good will. I will study harder.”
Everyone left, except for the deputy secretary. He asked if he could give me a ride home.” I thanked him for his kind offer, and told him that I was not yet going home.
