(Minghui.org) I started practicing Falun Dafa after the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) began persecuting this spiritual practice.
I was a widow in poor health, and my life was miserable. Soon after beginning the practice, all my diseases disappeared, and I became healthy. I am so grateful to Master Li Hongzhi for helping me!
Since then, I had a firm thought, “This Dafa is good. This is what I want, and I must practice it all the way to the end.”
During these years of cultivation, I strove to do the three things that a Dafa practitioner should do well.
No matter how difficult life was, I firmly believed in Master and Falun Dafa. I have been harassed and persecuted many times, including being incarcerated in prison and tortured for three years, but I have made it through under Master’s protection. These experiences have tempered me and strengthened my faith.
I was released but my name was on the blacklist, so the police came to harass me from time to time. Recently, amid the CCP’s so-called “Zero Out” campaign, the neighborhood community and police looked for me everywhere, as I was not living at home.
They harassed my family, put markings on my door, cut off the electricity, picked our locks, and installed cameras outside my home. The CCP exhausted every tactic to ruin a good person who practices Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.
I went to retrieve something from home. But as soon as I walked out the door, two neighborhood committee members stopped me and kept me from going downstairs. Five more people arrived soon after. I was not scared and asked calmly, “What do you want?” I thought: They are the most pitiful beings. Since they are here now, they must have a predestined relationship with me and have come here to hear the truth. So I will try to help them.
I asked them, “What are you doing here? And so many of you!” They said they were from the neighborhood committee, police station, and police department, and wanted to visit and see where I was going.
I said, “Is this how you usually visit people?
You’re capable of doing all evil. I’m almost 70 years old. What makes you think you can keep harassing me like this?
I practice Falun Dafa to become healthy and a better person. I have done nothing wrong, let alone commit a crime.
“Falun Dafa is the Fa of the cosmos that teaches people to be good and cultivate toward Buddhahood. The CCP’s persecution of Dafa is sinful and known to the world. My relationship with you is not persecuted and persecutor, it’s about you being better people.”
I told myself: I am playing the leading role today, so I will clarify the truth to them thoroughly. In my heart, I asked Master to give me wisdom. I told them the Tiananmen self-immolation was staged, that Falun Dafa has spread around the world, and it is a heavenly principle that good is rewarded and evil will meet with retribution.
The woman from the neighborhood committee said, “All we need from you is just a signature.”
I replied, “You don’t have the say. Master Li [Falun Dafa’s founder] has the say. I practice Falun Dafa, and Dafa is my life and my root. No one can stop me from practicing it. I will not sign anything for you. It would bring harm to you, and I don’t do things that harm people. You should not do it either. It’s not good for you.” She was speechless.
I continued, “Do not do things that go against heaven’s principles, morality, and your conscience. You would implicate your family, and there would be retribution.”
They said their superiors told them to do this, and they had no choice. I countered, “Will you do whatever the CCP tells you to do? It is harming you and dragging you to hell. You all need to think about it and distinguish between good and evil, right and wrong, and don’t fall for it. You are all good people, and you should use your brain.
“There are still thousands of Falun Dafa practitioners incarcerated in prisons and detention centres, and they’re subjected to various forms of torture. Their bodies and minds are being harmed, and many have suffered to the point of losing their lives.
“Why are we telling people the truth about Falun Dafa? To help them, so kindhearted people will not be deceived by the CCP, and be able to have a good future. The CCP is using you to persecute good people. How evil this is!
“Heaven is watching what people do. Falun Dafa practitioners are kindhearted cultivators who walk the path of righteousness. Persecuting Falun Dafa practitioners is the greatest sin in the universe. How can you possibly repay that? You must understand this.
“From now on, do not harass and arrest Dafa practitioners and do not be used by the Party. Protect yourselves and your families. I am saying these words for your own good. You must listen to me and quit all of the CCP’s organisations you have joined. The sooner you do, the sooner you’ll be safe. Remember what I said.”
They all nodded in agreement and some were in tears. So was I. The man from the Police Department said, “We will remember what you said. I am a Party member, please help me quit it.” Another person from the neighborhood committee also agreed to quit.
They were all shocked by my words. I treated them as my family and hugged each and every one of them. I said, “This is the happiest thing for me. You have understood the truth, protected a Falun Dafa practitioner, and you will be blessed.”
One of them said, “We have remembered everything you said. We are leaving. Thank you.” The police station chief did not leave immediately, and I spoke with him for a little while longer. He then announced, “Thank you! I’m leaving too.”
As I saw their cars leaving, I noticed a car parked on the north side of my building with two people inside looking my way. My gut feeling told me that they were here to watch me, so I went downstairs and walked over to them.
I said, “Hello, are you waiting for someone?” They said they were. I continued, “I live in this building, and I am a practitioner of Falun Dafa.” I told them what had just happened, and clarified the facts to them. They listened attentively and when I was done, they drove away.
I spent nearly two hours clarifying the truth, from when those people first arrived in my hallway, to walking over to the car parked on the north side of my building. I couldn’t help but shed tears thinking about it. These were tears of gratitude. Thank you, Master! This was another battle between good and evil, and once again, Master protected me and we helped human beings.
I have deeply understood Master’s Fa,
“Compassion can harmonise Heaven and Earth, ushering in the spring Righteous thoughts can save people in this world.”(“The Fa Rectifies the Cosmos,” Hong Yin II)
From this incident, I came to realise that the “Zero Out” campaign is in fact another test for Dafa practitioners. It is also an opportunity for the people who work in neighborhood committees and public security to be saved.
No one can harm us because we have righteous faith in Master and the Fa. The test is to see whether we still have a pure heart to help people at critical moments. If we do, then those people can be better people.
Master has given us opportunities to help people time and time again. We must seize them and help them and help more people. Let’s fulfill our prehistoric vows and follow Master home.
Thank you, our Benevolent and Esteemed Master!
