(Minghui.org) The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) recently launched a new nationwide “Zero-out” campaign with the goal of forcing every Falun Dafa practitioner on the government’s blacklist to renounce their faith.

In our area, police knocked on the doors of almost every single practitioner’s home, then photographed and videotaped practitioners and their families without their consent. Under the pressure, some practitioners’ family members told police that their loved ones had already stopped practicing Falun Dafa; some practitioners said that they would switch to doing other forms of workout to stay fit; some stopped joining the group Fa-study, and some family members cooperated with the police and gave them practitioners’ phone numbers. 

Why is the CCP able to conduct one campaign after another against Dafa practitioners? I believe that it is because we have failed to meet the requirements for Dafa cultivators. The old forces want to test us, and at the same time, this is also a test to see if we can transcend the human realm, pass the test of life and death, and truly save sentient beings.

It is obvious that practitioners’ loopholes have given the old forces opportunities to persecute us. I would like to share my thoughts on some of our issues in cultivation, and how I broke through some of the interference.

Our Mission Is to Save Sentient Beings 

When some practitioners were forced to write statements to give up practicing Dafa against their will, Master compassionately gave them a second chance, to make up for the loss by writing a solemn statement to publish on Minghui.org. Just by the sheer number of practitioners who published such solemn statements on Minghui.org, we can tell that many practitioners have failed to do well in the face of pressure.

But those police officers who were responsible for the persecution may not get a second chance. If family members collaborated with the police, they may not have a second chance, either. 

We are responsible for our own deeds. But when we didn’t cultivate ourselves well and gave the old forces opportunities to persecute us, then those who were used by the old forces to carry out the specific persecution might lose their chance to be saved – this is something none of us wanted.

Not Cooperating with the Police Is to Save Them

I was often inspired after reading practitioners’ sharing articles on Minghui. Many practitioners shared how they used righteous thoughts and compassion to clarify the truth to those involved in the persecution, to prevent them from committing crimes, and to disintegrate the old forces’ influence, so as to save them. Some perpetrators thanked practitioners for urging them to stop doing evil.

When we open the door to the police when they come to harass us or if we follow the police’s order to stay at home instead of going out to clarify the facts, we are cooperating with them and allowing the persecution to happen ourselves. In this case, we haven’t done our part to prevent them from doing evil, let alone save them.

Facing Interference with Righteous Thoughts

I would like to share how I refused to cooperate with a police officer and stopped him from committing crimes against Dafa. 

After filing a legal complaint in 2015 against Jiang Zeming, the former CCP head who launched the persecution of Falun Dafa in 1999, a police officer from the local police station called my husband and told him that they were coming to our apartment to take pictures and videotape our family. His hostile tone was intimidating, so my husband, who did not practice Dafa, was agitated and worried. 

Not frightened at all, I was determined that I would not let the police enter our apartment, where we kept many Dafa materials that we printed ourselves. I knew that I should do something to prevent them from committing a crime, so I called the complaint hotline to report on this police officer for the harassment. 

After providing my name, home address, the policeman’s name, and his police station, I told the person who answered my call that I am a Falun Dafa practitioner, and the policeman wanted to come to my home to videotape us. I asked if it was legal for him to do so. 

I explained that my husband had heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes and other diseases, and he might have a heart attack if the police officer came. The person on the other end of the line told me to call another hotline instead. She also told me not to turn off my phone for 24 hours because they would call me back. I sent righteous thoughts while waiting for their call.

Instead of receiving a call from the hotline the next day, the police officer called and yelled at my husband, demanding to know how we dared to call the mayor’s hotline! Irritated, my husband yelled back, and they began to quarrel.

As soon as I took over the phone, however, the police officer changed his tone. I told him that I called the hotline to ask a few questions, and I had the right to do that. He agreed. I also told him that I was directed to call the second hotline. I further explained to him that being in poor health, my husband was easily agitated, and became anxious easily. 

After the phone conversation, in order to further clarify the truth, I took my husband’s medical records and hospitalization notices to the police station, and showed them to the police officer. I also told him the facts of Falun Dafa. Since then, the police station has never bothered us again.

Police Are Also Sentient Beings

Calling hotlines to report on police officers’ illegal conducts equates to filing legal complaints against the CCP. Police officers are also victims of the persecution. They are under pressure from the authorities, and seldom have other options. We should adopt various methods to stop the police from doing evil, and clarify the truth to them to save them. 

Only by cultivating ourselves well can we save sentient beings and fulfill our prehistoric vows so as not to leave any regrets.

Please correct anything that does not conform to the Fa.
