(Minghui.org) I am a young female Dafa practitioner, and I work in a government agency. One afternoon, I saw a large sign that slandered Dafa in a street garden in the middle of town. It’s a very popular place, especially for the elderly and children.

Master said:

“Clarify the truth thoroughly, eliminate the evil with righteous thoughts, save all beings, and safeguard the Fa with determination, because you are a part of Dafa, indestructible; rectify all that is not righteous.” (“Dafa is Indestructible,” Essentials for Further Advancement II)

I realized it wasn’t an accident that I saw that sign. I loosened it and folded it. Although I couldn’t take the sign down, its message was unreadable. A man looking at his cell phone nearby heard me, looked up, and then went back to his cell phone. I was not afraid, but because it was broad daylight, I was a little nervous.

After I got home, I sent forth righteous thoughts, asking Master to help eliminate all the evil factors that interfered with Dafa practitioners’ validating the Fa and saving sentient beings.

I thought about how that evil sign was still there, unreadable though it was, and realized I should totally remove it and replace it with a truth-clarification poster. That night I went to the park again with a protective mask on. I took down the sign and replaced it with a truth-clarification poster. My poster featured a police officer who knew the truth and was therefore blessed, and then began to persuade others to do good. When passersby looked at me, it was as if I was invisible.

Later, when I went to the Fa study group, I learned that fellow practitioners had already removed other larger slanderous signs from that garden. The one I removed was a smaller one. We decided to mail truth-clarification letters and make truth-clarification calls to the street office in that neighborhood. Since it was close to July 1, the “Party Founding Day,” the Chinese Communist Party street committee hung up many such signs every day. If we removed some, they just hung up more.

With so many people and surveillance cameras in the garden, and with the street office located nearby, if I had given any thought to myself and my family, I wouldn’t have removed that poster. It reflected an improvement in my being able to let go of my human attachments. In the past, I felt afraid in this evil environment because all my family members and I are government employees and my child is still in school. But after this incident, my heart became firmer about validating the Fa. I became more determined to let go of my attachment of fear and be more diligent in saving sentient beings.

Too many human attachments will hamper our ability to save people. It is only after I have been cultivating for 22 years that I better enlightened to what Master taught us: “As long as you improve your xinxing, you can overcome them.” (Lecture Four, Zhuan Falun)

No words can express my gratitude to Master. Only by being more diligent in solid cultivation and doing the three things better can we live up to Master’s benevolence!
