Righteous Thoughts and Righteous Actions: Preface to Articles from Heilongjiang Province
Starting on March 30, 2005, the Minghui website (Chinese version of Clearwisdom) began publishing a series of experience sharing articles from Heilongjiang Province practitioners about righteous thoughts and actions. The following is their introduction:
As Falun Dafa continues to spread, we are fortunate to enjoy the compassionate protection of our Teacher. On July 20, 1999, the old forces mobilized the fierce, inhuman persecution of Falun Dafa that continues today. In the face of enormous pressure, Falun Dafa practitioners in our province have persistently cultivated and studied Falun Dafa. With righteous thoughts and actions, we have saved many sentient beings.
During the past five years, practitioners throughout the entire province have been trying their best to follow Teacher's Fa-rectification and save sentient beings through truth clarification. In some areas, through cooperation between practitioners, there are no more detained practitioners. In some areas, people have shown deep respect for Falun Dafa, and the number of new practitioners is increasing rapidly. Some Falun Dafa study groups have run smoothly for years despite the harsh environment. In some areas, material-production sites are everywhere. In some areas, practitioners working together closely have improved local conditions so well that they have positively influenced neighboring areas as well.
In looking at our accomplishments, we also ask ourselves: Have all groups in our area done as well as others in all regards? How many sentient beings are still waiting for us to save them? How many practitioners in our province are actively validating Falun Dafa? How many fellow practitioners still need our help? Is our personal cultivation up to par with Fa-rectification requirements? What aspects need to be improved regarding cooperation with other practitioners, both in China and abroad? These are all questions we need to answer.
When we find gaps in understanding between different regions, how can we lay down our biased local viewpoints to communicate, cooperate and selflessly supplement one another?
The evil is really scared that Falun Dafa practitioners have formed a strong, unified, righteous energy field. Thus, they slander Falun Dafa, trying to disturb the practitioners' cultivation. If all practitioners take full responsibility to create a good environment for group study and experience sharing, all of the practitioners across the globe will form an integrated body, and the evil will be totally destroyed.
May all practitioners be one harmonious body, act righteously, and together welcome the Fa-rectification of the human world!
