(Minghui.org) The Political and Legal Affairs Committee and 610 Office continue to harass Falun Gong practitioners in our city as part of the “Zero-out” campaign. They’ve forced many practitioners to attend brainwashing sessions, in the guise of being “the caring family.”

One day, the village secretary called my son and told him that he was under a lot of pressure to have me be taken to the brainwashing center, but my son managed to talk him out of it.

It wasn’t the first time the village secretary had protected me. But why should I rely on non-practitioners to protect me? And why did I keep being harassed?

I looked inward and found many attachments to “self.” I printed truth clarification materials at home, and sometimes fear crept into my thoughts. I was concerned that I should find a place to hide the machines and consumables, just in case the police came to harass me.

Sure enough, they came to harass me.

I was cooking lunch when my son called me and said he’d gotten a call from the government, telling me that some officials would be at our home that afternoon. My son suggested that I “tidy up” the rooms.

“Don’t worry,” I answered. “I won’t open the door when they come.”

I realized it was my loophole that brought about this situation the last time. When I wanted to hide my things, “just in case,” it meant that I was inviting the persecution. I should have negated that negative thought as soon as it arose.

I changed my thinking. Instead of fear motivating me to move those machines and materials to a safe place, I thought I should move them to safety to protect Fa implements.

When I had this thought, a bad substance slid away from deep within me. I felt so relaxed, both in mind and body.

After I changed my thinking, nobody came. My son called and asked how things were going. I said, “Nobody’s come yet, but if things get bad, maybe I can leave home and stay somewhere else for a while.”

My son firmly replied, “You can’t leave home! You simply can’t!”

After I hung up, I thought, “Yes, I can’t become homeless, that’s not what Master wants!”

Master said,

“When flies and mosquitoes are in the house, we can drive them out or install a window screen to keep them out. Sometimes, you cannot drive them out, and then if you kill them, so be it.” (Lecture Seven, Zhuan Falun)

This inspired me to send forth righteous thoughts to drive out or kill the bad matter in my home. Then I began to send righteous thoughts and felt that my dimensional field was very strong.

I am extremely honored to be able to attain the Fa in this lifetime and become a Dafa disciple. I must cultivate myself well and live up to Master’s expectations!
