Completely Negate the Persecution to Save People
(Minghui.org) I was arrested in April 2014. The police broke into my home and ambushed me when I came in. My computer was on when it happened, and my files documenting the persecution, practitioners’ phone numbers, and other information related to stopping the persecution was taken and copied.
The domestic security officers thought that they had arrested a “key” practitioner and claimed that they would make sure I got a heavy sentence. They bragged that they would plan a mass arrest of local practitioners using the information from my computer.
I quietly asked Teacher for help: “Please let all the truth-clarification materials the police confiscated have positive a positive effect in saving sentient beings.”
At first I got rattled whenever I heard the guards say things like “prosecution,” “put on trial,” “handing down a sentence,” or “sent to prison.” I even wondered what I would do if something happened to me.
After I calmed down and began to look inward, I realized that I still had attachments to vanity, to sentimentality, and especially to life and death. After I let these attachments go, I was no longer affected by what anyone said or by the evil environment of the detention center.
One day a lawyer came to see me. I told him about the filthy language the inmates used and how they had negatively affected my cultivation. He said, “They have been poisoned by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). They have no sense of decency, because the CCP has destroyed moral values.”
After hearing his explanation about the prison population, I was able to let go of my resentment of the inmates. I felt compassion for them instead.
The inmates soon became friendly. I knew the environment had changed as a result of the changes in my mind. With compassion, I told them the truth about Falun Dafa. Consequently, they were happy and felt confident that I would be released.
One morning, a guard opened the gate and called my name. He said, “Pack up, you can go home.”
Many of the inmates came and said goodbye to me. They knew that Falun Dafa was wonderful and told me that they didn't want to see any other practitioners being detained.
The person in charge of the domestic security division waited outside the detention center. Although I refused to sign the paper for my release, he told me that he didn't have to take me to the police department to take care of the paperwork. He just let me go home with my family.
Because of Teacher's benevolent protection and the righteous thoughts and actions of fellow practitioners, I was released without having to sign any documents or give any “confessions” during the month I was illegally detained.
No matter where we are, we are responsible for validating Dafa and saving sentient beings. Even if we have been arrested and are serving time in prison or are wading through the legal system, it is our responsibility to let people know the truth about Dafa.
