(Minghui.org) I would like to share how I let go of my attachment to being afraid of surveillance cameras and my experiences of doing the three things well.

Mass surveillance cameras were installed in the alleys and residential buildings in my neighborhood. The neighborhood only has a hundred residential houses, but mass surveillance cameras are everywhere. 

I felt uneasy each time I went out to clarify the truth. Soon enough, my attachment of being afraid of the surveillance cameras emerged. I began to think that those surveillance cameras were mainly targeting Falun Dafa practitioners. 

The local police officers didn’t know that I was a Falun Dafa practitioner since my residential address did not match with my household registrar. Later on, I started to worry if the police would figure out where I lived using the mass surveillance system. All sorts of thoughts about how I might be persecuted began to surface. 

Negative thoughts and notions began to surface and I was very scared for many days. I made sure I had face masks and held up an umbrella so the surveillance cameras wouldn’t be able to detect my facial features.

One day, I suddenly came to my senses and said, “This is not right! I am a Falun Dafa practitioner walking on the most righteous path. What’s there to be scared of? From an everyday person’s perspective, I am just coming and going from my house every day.” I realized that I was being interfered with by the evil and was moved by the Party’s regime. 

I began to study the Fa more as well as send forth righteous thoughts. I wanted to eliminate the attachment of fear. I realized that I placed too much importance on the surveillance cameras to the point that it had become an attachment.

Master wants us to do the three things well; we need to clear out the rotten ghosts and eliminate the evil communist specter. I need to completely eliminate all human attachments and notions. Only then can I cultivate well and not leave any loopholes for the evil to take advantage of. 

When I enlightened to this, I was not afraid anymore. Upon seeing the surveillance cameras, I was no longer scared. I had righteous thoughts and did everything in a dignified manner.

Master said,

“And everything is alive. When people regard things as being “organic” or “inorganic,” it is based only on the phenomena that people see, visually, at the surface. All things, including the products manufactured by factories, are alive.” (“Fa Teaching Given at the 2015 New York Fa Conference”)

The surveillance cameras are alive and as long as they know the truth about Dafa, they won’t do bad things. Therefore, I began telling each surveillance camera, “Don’t be used by the evil to persecute Falun Dafa practitioners. You will have a bright future. Treasure your own life!”

Since then, I’ve had strong righteous thoughts and have become an upright and dignified Falun Dafa practitioner. 

Later on, I was told that those surveillance cameras turned out to be defective. There was a motorist who had a hit-and-run accident in our district. When the family of the injured person went to the police station and reported the case, the police were not able to detect the facial features of the motorists. People started to mock the mass surveillance systems only as a “blind eye” system that was used for corruption. 

I felt that Master Li, the founder of Falun Dafa, was encouraging me when I let go of all my fears of the surveillance cameras. I felt that my xinxing was upgraded and things have become smoother when I go out to do the three things. 

Thank you, Master!
