(Minghui.org) A few days ago, when sending righteous thoughts to help disintegrate the local brainwashing sessions, I saw two scenes with my celestial eye.

In one scene, a plant that looks like a bamboo shoot was growing out of cracked, dry earth. Its upper stem had been cut off. However, several small shoots, full of vitality, sprouted from the bottom of the stem. They looked upright and courageous.

I remembered Master’s words,

“If a cultivator can truly let go of [the fear of] death, then death will forever be far removed from you.” (Teachings at the 2004 International Conference in New York)

I realized that as long as Falun Dafa practitioners have firm faith in Dafa, they will have immortality of life just as plants can regrow from their roots even though the upper stem is damaged.

In another scene, the brainwashing center looked like an iron box in another dimension that a poisonous spider was guarding. Doesn’t a spider represent sentimentality? I realized that the attachment to sentimentality may be one reason some adherents were arrested and mistreated.

If cultivators can let go of fear and treat every person in the brainwashing center as a sentient being to be saved, the persecution may end. Suppose practitioners were able to let go of sentimentality and not compromise with the demands of the prison guards. In that case, the old forces wouldn't find loopholes or have a reason to detain them. In other words, if Falun Dafa adherents held in a brainwashing center can let go of sentimentality and fear, they may be able to walk out of the brainwashing centers.
