Experiencing the Power of Righteous Thoughts
(Minghui.org) Dafa practitioners have followed Master through more than 20 years of Fa-rectification cultivation. There have been many miracles in the process of exposing the persecution, validating Dafa and clarifying the truth to save sentient beings. Here I will talk about a few amazing things that I experienced in my cultivation.
In November 2004, I was taken to a detention center after being illegally arrested. To oppose this persecution, several practitioners and I decided not to cooperate with the prison guards by not wearing the yellow vest worn by detainees. Although we knew there would be consequences, we were not afraid because we’d done nothing wrong and had broken no law.
The next day, the prison guards ordered us to wear the vests. We did not cooperate. One prison guard shouted angrily, “Bring the handcuffs and shackles!”
Suddenly, the air seemed to freeze, and someone cried out in fear. The prison guard shouted furiously, “Who died in your house, and what are you crying for?” At that moment, my heart was as calm as still water and I was fearless.
A guard forcibly put a yellow vest and handcuffs on me. But as she tried to put the shackles on me the prison guard said to herself, “I’m not giving you shackles now, let’s see how you behave in the afternoon.”
After the guard left, I asked Master to take the handcuffs off. Because of my strong righteous thought, the handcuffs fell off me.
The next day the prison guard saw the handcuffs on the bed. She had someone cuff me again and threatened the head cellmate, “If you find that her handcuffs are not on her and you don’t report it, you will also be handcuffed.” Later, I asked Master to take off the handcuffs again.
The prison guard was surprised. She reluctantly asked someone to handcuff me again, but she didn’t tell me to wear the yellow vest. She asked me, “How did you get your handcuffs off?” I didn’t answer directly, and told her, “You remember ‘Falun Dafa is good.’ This is the magic of Dafa. Buddha’s Fa is boundless.”
Later, my human notion came up and I thought they were going to handcuff me anyway. The result of this thought was forty days of being handcuffed. One's initial thought really can have an effect on the outcome being good or bad!
Another miracle happened in 2014 when I was traveling. I saw a middle-aged man at the station square who was going on a long journey. I said hello then sat down to clarify the truth about Falun Dafa and the persecution to him. When I took out an amulet from my bag and told him to remember Falun Dafa is good, one of the two young men sitting behind me suddenly stood up and grabbed the amulet from my hand, shouting, “What is this? Where are you from? Do you know what I do?”
I said, “Why do you care what this is? I don’t care who you are!”
He took out a small booklet from the bag and opened it, “You see who I am!”
I knew that I had encountered a plainclothes policeman. I immediately sent forth righteous thoughts, and kept saying in my heart, “Freeze him, freeze him.” Then I stood up and patted him on the shoulder, saying, “Young man, remember that Falun Dafa is good. Falun Dafa is good, don’t do bad things.” I patted him a few more times, and immediately turned around and left.
When I was ten meters away, I looked back and the two plainclothes policemen were frozen there. They were saying, “Don’t move,” but couldn’t walk, so I disappeared into the crowd immediately. Under Master’s protection, powerful righteous thoughts disintegrated the evil. It was really amazing.
I am grateful to Master for his compassionate protection, and for giving me wisdom and courage. I will walk my remaining path well. Thank you, Master!
