The Mighty Power of Righteous Thoughts
(Minghui.org) My celestial eye opened shortly after I began Falun Dafa cultivation practice. I was elated to see Master Li Hongzhi standing next to me on a lotus flower. The sky was filled with deities and rotating Faluns (Buddhist law wheels). I also saw Master Li lecturing at various realms of the universe.
Seeing all of this made me appreciate the boundless power and wonder of Dafa. I gave up my drinking and smoking habits just days into my practice.
Jiang Zemin, the former Chinese Communist Party head, began to persecute Falun Dafa in 1999, using all the nation’s resources. We practitioners started helping Master to rectify the Fa and save sentient beings. We put up posters and banners reading, “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good,” in many places.
I lived in the countryside. There were many utility poles in the villages, and they were great for sticking posters on. I rode my bicycle from village to village putting up posters. The police searched far and wide in their attempts to arrest me, but with Master’s protection, I was able to stay on my true path.
I did not finish elementary school and am not very well educated, but one of my classmates went on to become the village mayor. I once visited him when he was having a small party with some other officials. They invited me to sit down and have a drink with them. I said, “Sorry, I no longer drink or smoke. I am cultivating in Falun Dafa.” They were surprised.
I asked Master to guide me to help introduce Dafa to them. I told them that Falun Dafa is an advanced Buddha law practice, and practitioners live by the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. The practice has extraordinary powers for healing illnesses and improving health. I also told them that the Tiananmen self-immolation incident was staged. I said that under no circumstances should they follow Jiang Zemin and the CCP to persecute practitioners.
One of them said, “We won’t touch the posters on the utility poles. Do cultivate diligently.” I was truly happy that they understood the truth, and wished them a good future.
I moved from my village to the provincial capital in 2006. I didn’t know any practitioners there, so I made posters and put them up by myself. I bought a motorcycle to taxi people around with and also tell them about Dafa. My customers appreciated learning the facts about Falun Dafa and the persecution.
Sometimes bad things happened. One person I gave a ride to was a plainclothes police officer. I told him to remember “Falun Dafa is good” when he got off the motorcycle. He tried to grab me, but I escaped with Master’s help.
One day, a person who rode with me happened to be a practitioner. From that point on, I started working together with other local practitioners. When a practitioner got arrested, we went to the police station to clarify the truth. Our righteous thoughts intimidated the police; they were afraid to look us in the eyes. We also asked family members of arrested practitioners to go to the station and request their relative’s release.
I rode a few dozen miles on my motorcycle every day putting up posters. One time, some people spotted me putting up a poster and tried to catch me. I recited the verses for sending forth righteous thoughts and escaped. With Master’s help, I managed to escape from the evil every time.
Fellow practitioners helped me learn how to access online information and print materials. I made DVDs and pamphlets for practitioners in remote areas and distributed Dafa materials in my spare time. Whenever a practitioner told me about a poster that slandered Dafa, I went to remove it right away to prevent it from poisoning people's minds.
I also sent forth righteous thoughts to clean up my work environment. I told many people about Dafa and invited them to listen to Master’s lectures with me. Twelve of us rotated in groups of two on the night-shift. I had the chance to work with every other team member, and they all had the good fortune of hearing Master Li's lectures.
I once talked about Falun Dafa with the president of the factory. I told him that the CCP had committed heinous crimes and would be punished by heaven. I advised him to quit the CCP as soon as possible. He was touched by my compassion and agreed to quit on the spot.
