(Minghui.org) I started practicing Falun Dafa, also known as Falun Gong, in 2002. I would like to share my cultivation experiences.
I went out to distribute truth clarification materials with other practitioners one evening in the summer of 2009. As we were walking, two men on a motorcycle suddenly came out of nowhere and stopped in front of us. One of them hollered, “What did you leave at my house? I'll take you to the police!” They blocked our away.
I was holding a “Falun Dafa Is Good” banner at the time. I held it up and said to him, “Let me show you my 'Falun Dafa Is Good' banner.” I regretted not having any Dafa keepsakes with me. I thought that, if they had one, their trip would be safer. This thought made the men change their attitude. The other man said, “Watch out for your safety!” and then they rode away.
Their sudden change of attitude surprised me. Then I realized that my compassion had dissolved the old forces controlling them.
We live in the countryside and often go out as a group to different places to distribute informational materials. We also speak to people face-to-face on the way.
One day, a loud voice from behind could be heard yelling, “Hey! Hold it!”
I turned around and saw a man running towards us. I asked if he was speaking to us. “Yes,” he said, “don't move!”
I thought he wanted to hear the truth about Falun Gong, so we waited for him. “Do you know who I am?” he asked, pointing to the badge on his shoulder.
Without thinking much, I replied, “You're a police officer. Your job is to protect people.”
He took out several pamphlets that we'd left at peoples’ houses and asked if we'd given them out. I told him that we did and suggested that he read them, “Yes. It's all about being good. Read them and you'll know.”
“Don't give out the pamphlets anymore,” he said. I understood that he intended to protect us. He kept a distance from us and directed the police car that arrived in another direction.
I thought about that incident after returning home. It seems to me that, when we encounter interference without fear, our righteous thoughts can eliminate all interference.
A practitioner in the neighboring county was arrested in July 2011. To help secure her release, I went to the county Domestic Security Division with her daughter.
I took along some informational materials, and the minute we got on the bus I started talking to some of the passengers about Falun Gong.
One woman refused to take a pamphlet from me and told a rough-looking man nearby to beat me up. I sent righteous thoughts right away. The man walked up to me and said, “So you practice truthfulness-compassion-beauty?”
“It's Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance,” I replied and started talking to him about Dafa. He listened and didn't touch me. Then he quit the Young Pioneers, one of the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) youth organizations. He then told other people on the bus to listen to what I had to say.
When we arrived at the Domestic Security Division, I spoke to the officer in charge. I took out a pamphlet from my bag and handed it to him. “You say that you abide by the law. Let's talk about that.”
A tall policeman came over and grabbed my arm. He shouted, “Bring the handcuffs. Let's cuff her.” Many officers came over. Some were taking pictures and recording the events, while others just stood watching.
I heard a “crack” when the officer bent my arm back and thought that he had broken it. It was extremely painful. I said to Teacher in my mind, “Teacher, they just can't be reasoned with!” Immediately, the officer let go of my arm.
He then grabbed my knapsack, and I tried to pull it back. The strap broke and all the materials fell on the floor. There were more than 20 booklets. The officer gathered them up and started to spread them out on the floor.
I rubbed my arm because it really hurt. I thought, “Let the pain be transferred to him.” The moment I had that thought, my arm felt much better, and the officer stopped spreading out the booklets. He stood up and silently went back to his desk.
The officer in charge said, “You go home now and leave these materials here.”
“Then you take a good look at them,” I replied.
After I got home, I shook my head in wonder: “How did I manage to leave there? They just let me go. It was really remarkable!”
“Our Falun Dafa will protect students from deviating. How does it protect you? If you are a true cultivator, our Falun will safeguard you. I am rooted in the universe. If anyone could harm you, he or she would be able to harm me. Put simply, that person would be able to harm this universe.” (Zhuan Falun)
It reminded me of another incident when a couple of practitioners were arrested. I followed their case closely.
Another practitioner called and invited me over. While I was waiting for the bus, it suddenly started to pour, lightning flashed, and the crack of thunder followed. I tried to open my umbrella, but it just wouldn't open. I was soaking wet. I knew that the old forces were trying to stop me from going to see the practitioner.
When I got to the practitioner's house, he asked me if I knew anything about the arrested practitioners. He said, “Someone went to see them in custody, and the head of the police said that he'd arrest any practitioner who dares to go there. The practitioners here won't go, and I was wondering if you would.”
“Sure.” I replied. “They don't know what to do with me. I belong to the new universe. The old forces can't handle me.”
The practitioner's daughter and I went to the Domestic Security Division to talk to the police there. We bumped into the head of the police as we went upstairs. Instead of arresting us, he led us to the Control Division as well as the Procuratorate.
It was like he wanted us to tell the people there about Falun Gong. So we did! And left afterward.
It was truly like Teacher said,
“Should you have fear,it will seize upon youIf thoughts are righteous,evil will collapse” (“What’s to Fear?” in Hong Yin II)
I was once hanging signs that said, “Falun Dafa Is Good” and “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance Is Good” on a telephone pole in the middle of the night, when a village security director saw me.
I wasn't scared and said that I wanted everyone to know that Falun Dafa is good and Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good. He kept walking, then turned around and said, “I didn't see anything.”
I have had many more such experiences. They all confirmed my belief that, as long as I have righteous thoughts and my mind is pure, Dafa will show its mighty power!
During the Fa-rectification period the most important thing that practitioners must do is to study the Fa well, as all the righteous beliefs and righteous actions come from the Fa.
I recite Zhuan Falun and Hong Yin I, II, III and IV. I also study Teacher's lectures. I seldom sleep in my bed and only take naps. When I wake up, I start to recite the Fa and do the exercises. I talk to as many people as I can about Falun Dafa and the persecution.
There are over a thousand households in my town, and I have spoken to every one of them.
Let's encourage each other to be more diligent and fulfill our mission during the very last moments of Fa-rectification.
