Cherish Our Body That Has Been Purified by Master

Aug. 11, 2021 |   By a Falun Gong practitioner in Hebei Province, China

(Minghui.org) I received a phone call from my residential committee a few days ago and was asked again to get vaccinated unless I produced an approval from the local vaccination office for vaccine exemption.

I’ve read reports that many provinces have issued their local policies—without vaccination, one is not allowed to go to public places or use public transportation. Children are forbidden to go back to school if their parents remain unvaccinated. Some places give incentives such as eggs, cooking oil, or even cash for people to get the shots. Vaccination, which should be a personal choice, has become compulsory and a political task.

When my husband came home that night, I told him about the residential committee’s phone call. He is also a Dafa disciple and works as a civil servant. He had been forced to get vaccinated a few months ago. He was concerned and asked me to receive the vaccine before more trouble sets in. I told him that I would not get the vaccine.

I also shared some discussions I had with some local practitioners during our group Fa study several days before the residential committee’s phone call. During the experience sharing portion of our gathering, someone asked whether we should be vaccinated. One said that he wouldn’t allow something like the vaccine to pollute his body; some quoted Master’s recent article “Stay Rational,” in which Master (Master Li Hongzhi, the founder of Falun Dafa) said “True Dafa disciples have higher energy and are able to destroy karma and germs...”

My reply was: “Dafa disciples cannot take the initiative to get vaccines unless they absolutely have to.” As soon as I said it, I felt that I was wrong. What is absolutely necessary? Is it the arrangement by the old forces? Dafa disciples play the leading role here, and everything in the human world should change with our thoughts and ideas.

I kept asking myself the question: “What do I cultivate for? Why don’t I get the vaccine?” My body has been adjusted by Master after all the hardships and efforts, and it is extremely pure. How can I let it be polluted again with the vaccine? Absolutely not! I must defend Master’s painstaking work and effort in purifying my body.

Two days after the residential committee’s phone call, my husband saw the news on his phone that the National Health Commission of China issued an announcement to ban mandatory vaccination and invalidate local policies to force people to get the shots. My husband was also impressed by how important a cultivator's righteous thoughts are. I added that it was Master who is omnipotent.
