Avoiding Danger with Righteous Thoughts
(Minghui.org) I started practicing Falun Dafa in 1996, and I am now in my sixties. I encountered many dangers while clarifying the truth and saving people, but I was able to remain safe and avoid the danger every time. The following are two examples of how I avoided danger with righteous thoughts.
Unscathed After a Car Accident While on the Way to Clarify the Truth
I was riding my bicycle in October 2018 to distribute truth-clarification calendars when I was hit by a car. I laid on the road unconscious. The driver was very frightened. I woke up after a while and my first thought was Master’s Fa:
“We have said that good or bad comes from a person’s initial thought, and the thought at that moment can bring about different consequences.” (Lecture Four, Zhuan Falun)
My initial thoughts were that I was a practitioner and I should be fine despite being hit. I knew this was a test for me and that I must follow Master’s teaching.
The driver helped me up and wanted to take me to the hospital. A businessman nearby told me to ask for compensation. I refused, and told the driver, “I am a Falun Dafa practitioner. I won’t ask you for money. Please don’t worry.”
The driver was still reluctant to believe me. I realized this was an opportunity to clarify the truth to a predestined person. So I clarified the facts to him and gave him a truth-clarification calendar. He finally believed me. He understood the truth and withdrew from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its affiliated organizations. Two other people in the car also listened to the facts and withdrew from the CCP.
They wanted to give me some money, but I politely refused. Because he wasn't from that town, I told him to hurry back home since he still had a long way to go. He was so touched that he thanked me repeatedly. I told him he should really thank Dafa's Master, who taught me to be kind and always think of others first.
After they left, I realized I wasn’t injured at all, not even a scratch. I was very grateful for Master’s salvation and deeply understood that I will be safe as long as I am on the righteous path of saving sentient beings.
Dissolving All Dangers and Obstacles with Righteous Thoughts During Fa-Rectification
I went out to put up truth-clarification banners one night in 2004. As I was posting a banner on the wall, someone suddenly punched me from behind. I froze for a moment, then turned back and looked at the person with righteous thoughts. My thought was that Dafa disciples are doing the most righteous thing by saving sentient beings and no one is worthy of interfering.
Soon people surrounded us, and one person who understood the truth told him, “What’s wrong with you? Please leave him alone.” The man who punched me said, “This is my job.” I presumed the man was a plainclothes police officer.
When I heard this, I had no fear at all. Instead, Master’s teaching echoed in my ears,
“If upon encountering trying circumstances your thinking can be truly righteous, then, when faced with the evil's persecution and when faced with interference, just one sentence of yours fortified with steadfast righteous thoughts can instantly make the evil disintegrate (applause), and it will make those who are being used by the evil turn and flee, it will make the evil's persecution of you dissolve, and it will make the evil's interfering with you disappear without a trace.” (“Teaching the Fa at the Western U.S. International Fa Conference,” Collected Fa Teachings, Vol. VII)
I started to clarify the truth to him and told him about the greatness of Dafa. I told him, “I greatly benefited from Dafa, and I would like more people to benefit from Dafa, to follow Dafa's principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, and also have a healthy body. This is what I am doing here. No one can stop me.”
He was shocked by my righteous thoughts and actions. His attitude eased, and he let me go.
This incident helped me to strengthen my belief in Master and the Fa. I felt from the bottom of my heart that sentient beings have suffered a lot, and I must save them. On the path of clarifying the truth, I used my compassion to save sentient beings, and I walked a righteous path. I never missed an opportunity to clarify the truth to a predestined person, regardless of whether they were cadres, workers, teachers, students, police, or officials from the 610 Office or Procuratorate. I went out to save sentient beings every day, even during the CCP virus pandemic, and I helped many people be saved by Master.
I understand that the remaining evil is very weak and all that’s left are bluffs. Our Dafa disciples should not be deceived by superficial phenomena. Master has the final say for everything. As long as we have the Fa in our hearts and sentient beings in our minds, we are the safest, and Master will arrange the best path for us. Thank you, Master, for your compassionate salvation!
