(Minghui.org) I have practiced Falun Dafa for more than 21 years. I would like to share a few examples that highlight the importance of righteous thoughts. 

My brother lived in Liaoyuan City, Jilin Province, and we went there when he passed away. We passed by Gongzhuling, which is the hometown of the founder of Falun Dafa, Master Li Hongzhi.

It was about 1 p.m. when we arrived in Liaoyuan, and within an hour I began to clarify the truth to people about Dafa. My relatives told me that they received a pamphlet about Falun Dafa every year, but no one actually spoke to them. So I told them about Falun Dafa and explained why it was important to quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its youth organizations. I continued to clarify the truth to people until 8 p.m. that evening. The next day I did the same until we left for home. 

I was distributing Falun Dafa calendars in the fall of 2017, when two police officers passing by in a patrol car arrested me. As they drove me to the station, I told them that Falun Dafa practitioners live by Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance and that we are doing nothing wrong. 

One of the officers asked the station chief to come downstairs, but he wouldn't. The same officer called the captain of the domestic security division, but no one answered. “No one seems to care,” he murmured to himself. 

A young officer told him to let me go. Another officer said, “We’ll let you go if you defame your master.”

“You police officers encourage people to call others names?” I asked. That officer left, and I was released soon after. 

My husband often yelled at me. I did not pay much attention to it and always remained calm. However, he also hit me a few times. 

I later enlightened that, although Master wants us to forbear, he did not ask us to be a cowardly person with no principles. When my husband tried to hit me again, I told him, “I’m not only your wife, I am a Dafa practitioner. I am Master Li Hongzhi’s disciple. How dare you hit me?” He was stunned, and he hasn't hit me since.
