(Minghui.org) Since my father was a so-called “old Red Army man,” I went into public security after I graduated, though it had nothing to do with my major. I was a Class II police supervisor, which was the highest level among policewomen in the city where I live. I have retired now.

Finding hope despite disappointment in society

I worked hard, and I hated to see the corruption in society. One day, the head of a labor team from another city acted indecently in our city. His case was transferred to me. One of his men slapped me in the face before I had a chance to handle the case. Then, the Secretary of the Municipal Committee of the Communist Party issued an order to release him because they had a certain relationship. Why should I suffer such an abuse? I started to sue the secretary of municipal committee and the person who hit me. I submitted my case to the authorities again and again. And they dispatched teams to come down and investigate again and again. Every time, those personnel accepted bribery and stood by the Secretary of the Municipal Committee. I used my family's influence and wrote to a certain member of the Standing Committee of Central Committee of Chinese Communist Party. The authorities dispatched people to investigate, but those who came all wrote false investigation reports. I felt very upset. I was assaulted at work and the culprit was at large. Even I, with such a strong background, was mistreated. How would an ordinary person survive? I felt the Chinese Communist Party had no future. I turned to Buddhism. However, I soon found that so-called “Buddhism” was also no longer pure. I felt very disappointed.

When Falun Gong was made public, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance resounded in my heart. I searched for practice sites and Falun Dafa practitioners. Finally, I made a special trip to Beijing and got a copy of Zhuan Falun from the Headquarters of General Staff, through my father's military companions.

Master said in “Teaching the Fa at the International Experience-Sharing Conference in Beijing” (Teaching the Fa at the Conference I)

“… it has been really hard for you to obtain this Fa. Perhaps the hardships you endured in the first part of your life have been for the sake of obtaining this Fa. That’s the part you know about. There are still things you don’t know about; perhaps you have been suffering and undergoing hardships in your previous lives or for an even longer period of time in order to obtain this Fa.”

I felt Master was speaking to me. I cried. At that point, I started my true cultivation journey.

Going to appeal, dressed in a police uniform

I felt very happy about becoming a true Falun Dafa practitioner after being a faithful Buddhist. When the government persecuted Falun Dafa, I stood up to protect Dafa without hesitation. On April 25, 1999, I wore my police uniform and went to Beijing. I showed my identification publicly in order to display my concern for this issue and my determination to defend Dafa. The next day, several policemen were chasing several Dafa practitioners. They had nowhere to hide and came close to me. At that time, I was at the entrance to a restaurant. I called them to sit around a table. I paid the restaurant owner to get a bowl of noodles for each fellow practitioner. Some practitioners cried. I said: “Don't cry. Eat up.” And then, I stood at the entrance to guard them. Those policemen did not ask any questions and left when they saw I was dressed in a police uniform. When I went back to where I stayed, an elderly man told me: “Take off your police uniform quickly.” I said: “I am a police officer.” He said: “You have retired. You're not a police officer any more.” I took off the uniform and put it under my pillow. The police arrived just after I finished. They wanted to find a person dressed in a police uniform. At that time, I wore ordinary clothes. They did not find anything and left. I thank Master for protecting me.

Keeping a special agent in place

After July 20, 1999, I followed the course of Fa-rectification, put aside all selfish concerns and stepped out to save sentient beings. At home, I clarified the truth to my son. He also helped me make truth-clarification materials after he learned the truth. I clarified the truth to the commissar in the office where I worked. He quit from the three organizations of Chinese Communist Party after he knew the truth. He did not block me from clarifying the truth anymore. The environment for me to clarify the truth became open. I clarified the truth, distributed flyers and posted Falun Gong materials in farmer's markets, on cars, sidewalk, in parks, at morning markets. I walked everywhere. I would go wherever there were people.

One day, when I was posting Falun Dafa materials, a hand suddenly reached from behind my back and grabbed my arm. I turned my head and saw he was from the Public Security Bureau. He said: “Let's go.” I had an inspiration. I pointed to the Dafa materials posted on the wall and said: “What is this?” His grasp relaxed and he started to read the poster. I thought: “You are a special agent; how can you ever control me? You stay here. Don't move.” He really did not move. With one of his fingers pointing to the poster on the wall, I returned home safely.

However, he still harassed me afterwards. He often waited at the entrance to our residential area and interfered with me going out to save people. I sent righteous thoughts that since he often interfered me saving people and harassed me, he should get punishment. After a period of time, he disappeared. His wife suffered a mental disorder. He was fired because he had troubles at work. He sold his house and moved to a remote area.

A female store owner's fate changed

I have many vivid stories from the course of my clarifying the truth and saving sentient beings. Here is a story about a female store owner.

She has a store near my home. I often go shopping in her store. I clarified the truth to her, but she did not listen. I found she often wore a frown and was unhappy. Her mother told me: “She got pregnant a couple times, but every time she had a miscarriage. She has tried for a long time with no success.” I clarified the truth to her again and told her that she would be rewarded if she recited “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” She remained skeptical.

A few days later, I went to her store and saw her mother took care of the customers for her. She sat aside crying. I asked her what was wrong. Her mother told me: “She is pregnant again. But the fetus is not in a good position and is in danger.” I said: “Don't be scared. You just follow what I said, reciting 'Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.' You will definitely benefit. I would not deceive you. I don't want to take advantage of you.” She agreed.

When I went to the lady's store again, she had a full smile and said to me: “The fetus is safe and developing well. My business runs pretty well. Many of the old stock has sold. I am busy counting money every day.” I said: “Because you recite those words with your heart, our Master takes care of you.” Now, she has a beautiful daughter.

Great forbearance resolves hatred

Before I started practicing Falun Gong, I drank and smoked a lot. I looked very stern at work. Many criminals felt scared upon hearing my name. When they were arrested, they often said they were my sons, and the corrupt police just let them go. Later, the policemen asked me how many sons I had. After I heard what happened, I said: “Beat them badly. I just have one son and he never does bad things.” I hated criminals like enemies and never relented.

After practicing Falun Dafa, I had a complete change. Master requires us to follow Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. I should be tolerant when dealing with things; that is, being tolerant is a big test for me. Master said in Zhuan Falun:

“As a practitioner, the first thing you should be able to do is to not fight back when you are beaten or sworn at—you must be tolerant. Otherwise, what kind of practitioner will you be?”

In the past, I often beat and swore at others. After I started to practice, I listened to Master changed completely. It was very difficult for me, but no matter how hard it was, I would listen to Master, because I am a Falun Dafa practitioner.

One day, the neighbor to the west of my home installed an air conditioner. They drilled a hole on my wall. I told the young man who drilled the hole to move to another place. My neighbor's son heard my words and swore at me with very bad and indecent language. I felt very upset. I thought: I am older than his mother - how he could be so rude? His curses drew the attention of many people. I was inside and did not go out. I recalled Master's words: “Forbearance is the key to improving one’s xinxing.” (“What is Forbearance (Ren)?” from Essentials for Further Advancement) No matter how young the man was who swore at me, I would not reply. I just wanted to resolve the issue with great forbearance. However, he did not give up and thought I would take revenge. That night, he beat the superintendent of the hygiene center who went to his home to visit his mother. As a result, he got what he deserved. His mother was very sick and could not take care of herself soon after that. She fell down outside. I supported her to get up, and she was very moved. My son asked: “Would you lend your hand to a poisonous snake?” I told him: “A practitioner does not have any enemies. We forgive her with a broad heart. The aim is to save her.”
