The Power of Righteous Thoughts Is Immeasurable
(Minghui.org) My husband and I run a business. In addition, we often cooperate with fellow practitioners to help clarify people's misunderstandings about Dafa and awaken their consciences. In our 24 years of cultivation, many extraordinary and amazing things have happened.
Sending Righteous Thoughts
One afternoon at the end of autumn, my husband and I were driving a tractor back to the house. We were so busy that we had not eaten lunch. A practitioner came and told us that practitioners in another city urgently need Dafa truth-clarifying materials and we had to deliver them immediately, a distance of about 40 kilometers away. The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) was holding meetings at that time, and there were police checkpoints at all major intersections. After discussing it with my husband, we decided to take the rural roads. That meant we would have to ride the bike.
We immediately headed out with a full load of materials. The country road was pitted, full of bumps and potholes. We rode down a hill and hit a crossroads. Suddenly, we saw two police officers checking pedestrians at the crossroad. We were about to take a detour, but it was too late. The police had already seen us.
At that time, I felt my heart was in my mouth and asked my husband quietly, “What shall we do?”
My husband was very calm. He looked ahead and said, “Hurry up and send righteous thoughts! Master is with us. What are we afraid of?” Right away I calmed down, too, and felt that Master was right next to me. I replied, “Yes, with Master’s protection, we are not afraid.”
My husband and I continued riding while holding righteous thoughts. I thought: Dafa disciples are messengers from God, we are doing the most righteous things in the universe, everything Master arranged is the best, and the persecution has nothing to do with us practitioners. Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance pervade everything. All beings came to help Dafa practitioners fulfill their mission and play a positive role. Remembering that Falun Dafa is good and Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good will bring one a bright future.
We rode right past the police, who didn’t even notice us. They were busy checking other people. We quickly passed out of their sight.
After a while, we turned into the cropland bordering the road and crossed the small alley into the village. We bought a few steamed buns along the way and didn’t even have time to stop for water. Normally I developed cold sores when I got dehydrated. This time I was full of energy.
We continued to send righteous thoughts to eliminate evil interference. We went through the fields in the countryside. We went through the alleys and the streets in the city and successfully delivered all the materials to fellow practitioners.
Through this experience, I witnessed the power of sending righteous thoughts.
Cooperating as One Body
My husband and I were driving back to our hometown the summer before last. All vehicles had to stop at checkpoints to be inspected. My husband had been sitting in the back seat with a pocket full of currency bills that had Falun Gong messages printed on them. He quietly got out without anyone noticing. I was in the front.
When the guard came over and asked where I’d been, I told him I’d gone to my daughter’s to babysit. “There are conferences in the township,” he said. “Everyone has to be checked. Show me your ID.” I thought that we were so close to home so I handed him my ID. To my surprise, four or five other guards came over to check the car and search my bag. They found truth clarifying currency in my wallet and took me to the interrogation room.
They took turns questioning and threatening me, asking me where I’d gotten the truth-clarifying currency. I was not afraid and kept sending righteous thoughts. I was determined not to cooperate with them. After half an hour, they took me to a nearby police station.
At the station, while the guards were away, I called my mother-in-law. “Mom, the guards stopped me at the village checkpoint.” A policeman heard me and grabbed my phone.
Then two police officers, a man and a woman, came to me. They tried to deceive and threaten me. They said, “Your father-in-law is the stationmaster and your mother-in-law also helped with Falun Dafa. You practice Falun Dafa, right?”
I didn’t answer. I told them that I only took care of the kids. In the meantime, I asked Master to strengthen me and began to increase the intensity of sending righteous thoughts. I tried to concentrate and rid myself of fear. I completely denied all the interference by the old forces, exerted the power of righteous thoughts from the perspective of Fa-rectification, and stopped the evil from using the police to commit crimes against Dafa and Dafa practitioners. After six p.m. I felt that the surrounding energy field was very strong. The police’s attitude seemed not so fierce anymore. They left after they could not get me to talk.
Another police officer came over around seven p.m. to take a blood sample and planned to send me to the detention center. At that moment, Master showed me an illusion of sickness. I felt cold all over and I kept shaking. I closed my eyes and lay down on the floor. When the police saw it, they stopped trying to take my blood and told me to lie on a bench and wait for my family.
A fellow practitioner came to the police station around 11 p.m. and took me home. I got back my phone and my bag, but the police kept the truth-clarifying currency.
My family and several fellow practitioners were so happy to see me home safely. I found out that, after I called her, my mother-in-law immediately put away the Dafa books and clarifying truth materials at home, then she notified the surrounding practitioners to send righteous thoughts together.
My mother-in-law told me, “Everyone said that the evil will never be allowed to continue to persecute Xiaolian (my pseudonym), and she must be sent home today! Some practitioners went to find out where you were detained. Some went to find the Party secretary who knew the facts and had him find out what was going on. Several of us gathered in a circle to send righteous thoughts together. With Master’s blessing, everyone cooperated very well and sent righteous thoughts well together. The energy field was very strong. Both Xiaoyu (a pseudonym for my son) and I saw it with our third eyes. The four corners of our city burst into flames that blazed into the sky, and the energy field covered the entire city. The evil really had nowhere to hide. Before long we found out that you were taken to the police station. They called around 9 p.m. to pick you up.”
At this moment, I understood the power of cooperation between the individual and the effectiveness of sending righteous thoughts together. Master tells us:
“My Dafa disciples, your righteous thoughts do have an effect. And the combined effect of each of you together is powerful beyond compare. The reason you can’t achieve such an effect is that your faith is lacking, and your righteous thoughts aren’t strong enough. With so many Dafa disciples around the globe sending righteous thoughts at the same time, 100 million plus Dafa disciples sending righteous thoughts together at the same time globally, would that not be terrifying to the evil and the old forces? To the gods, it would be a truly magnificent sight. What power! Even with just one Dafa disciple, if your righteous thoughts are strong, the power is enough to split a mountain—just one thought will do it. ”(“What is a Dafa Disciple,” Collected Fa Teachings, Vol. XI)
The practitioner who’d come to get me smiled and told everyone, “When I arrived at the police station, I saw Xiaolian lying there with her eyes closed and immobile. I said to her, ‘Xiaojian, get up, let’s go home!’ She quickly rolled up and said to the police, “Return my phone, my bag, and my money!” Even the police laughed, and they returned the phone and bag to Xiaolian right away.”
When they heard this, everyone laughed. They said they really felt the power of righteous thoughts and the importance of cooperation that day.
In the future, we must pay attention to sending righteous thoughts. The power of righteous thoughts is immeasurable!
