(Clearwisdom.net) In the early 2001, I went to Beijing to appeal for justice for Falun Dafa. When I arrived at Tiananmen Square, two policemen stopped me and demanded that I curse someone on the spot. One of them said, "If you will not curse people, then you must be Falun Gong and I will arrest you." I told him, seriously, "Arrest me for not cursing people? That would be against the law." But he said, "You think Falun Dafa is good, even though you do not say it. But you did so in your mind." They detained me. To seek justice, I went to appeal to the Public Security Bureau and the government, but they refused my appeals, saying that they had orders from "top" authorities. This is what the government claims to be the best period of human rights and a modern legal system in China!
There are many unforgettable memories on the journey of cultivation. When my xinxing [the nature of the mind or the heart, moral character] improved, the environment around me changed for the better. When I was in a detention center, an elderly female criminal inmate told us before she was released, "I own a motel. In the future, when my guests talk about Falun Gong, I will tell them, 'Have you met a real Falun Gong practitioner before? I have. They are different from what is shown on TV. They are good people."
Our behavior and speech are very important in daily life, because everyday people get to know Dafa by watching us. Once, a detainee said, "If a student is good, that only says that the student's performance is good. If many students are good, then the school must be good. Likewise, so many of you are good people, Dafa must be good and your teacher teaches you very well. Your teacher is great."
I am glad to be here during the spreading of Dafa. I cherish the opportunity to be with our Teacher during the Fa rectification period. I am proud to be a Dafa practitioner, helping our Teacher to rectify the Fa. I treasure the opportunity our Teacher has given us.
