We Must Have Faith in Master and the Fa Amidst Tribulations
(Minghui.org) Amidst trials and tribulations, we must have faith in Master and the Fa. Only when we have righteous thoughts and righteous actions can we reverse trying situations. I would like to share my experience of truth clarification, including fighting an illegal trial. Please kindly point out anything that is inconsistent with the Fa.
One afternoon last spring, I came across an elderly man on my way to the bus station in Dalian City. I went up to him and said, “Hello, it’s a pleasure to meet you today. Please remember that Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good. Have you heard about quitting the Chinese Communist Party (CCP)?”
Before I could finish, he accused me of being against the Party and propagating Falun Dafa. As he walked away, he kept looking back at me. Soon, a police vehicle pulled up. They forced me to get in the car and took me to the Guilin Street Police Station.
The man I had talked to on the street was at the police station when I arrived. He pointed his finger at me and said, “It was her. She was trying to tell me to withdraw from the Party in order to save my life!”
I remembered that Master said practitioners do not have enemies. So I said to him, “I don’t blame you. You don’t know the truth!” The people who heard me were shocked and fell silent. The compassion of a Dafa practitioner moved everyone there.
They kept me in the station and sent police to ransack my home. I told them that ransacking my home was trespassing and illegal. They took away many of the supplies I use in clarifying the truth to people.
They asked, “Where did you get the Falun Dafa materials (informational magazines, leaflets and CDs)?”
I replied, “I made them myself.” He asked again, “What did you make them for? I replied, “To save people.” The police officer said, “I don’t believe that you are capable of doing that at your age.”
I told him I downloaded the materials from the internet and made them myself. He said, “I will find out whether you are telling the truth when I get to your house. Then we will see what you have to say.”
By 9 pm, I was feeling pretty dizzy and lightheaded. The security guard took me to the hall and let me have some fresh air. At 10 pm, the police officers who went to ransack my home came back and brought my son with them. I must have looked sick, because my son shed tears when he saw me.
They decided to take me to the hospital despite my protest. At the hospital, my systolic blood pressure was at 230. The doctor said that I might be having a heart attack and needed to be hospitalized.
The following morning, the police officer responsible for my case came running into the hospital and said, “You are free to go now. They have approved your bail for medical reasons.” I knew that Master was protecting me. Three days later, I asked to be discharged, but was refused by the doctor. They insisted that I stay for a week. So I talked to people about the facts of Falun Dafa until I went home.
At the end of the year, I was told by the local police station that they had reported me to the Procuratorate. I went and told them that I did not break any laws, and that it is not illegal to practice Falun Dafa. They had three documents they wanted me to sign, but I refused. The Prosecutor had no choice but to let me go.
However, when I got to the court, I was intimidated by the judge and had some human thoughts that he might detain me. Driven by fear, I signed the documents. I did something that a Dafa practitioner should not do. Consequently I was taken advantage of by the old forces.
On December 7, 2016, my son received a call from Zhongshan District Court. They informed us that my trial date had been set for December 14. I realized that I had loopholes that were being taken advantage of by the old forces and needed to do better.
“The actual transformation process takes place in other dimensions and is extremely complex and intricate. There cannot be one bit of error.”(Zhuan Falun)
I remembered what Master said and knew that I had flaws which I would need to rectify by cultivating my character. However, I would not accept any persecution by the old forces, nor would I allow the people of the world to commit crimes against Dafa!
I told my son, “All we need to do is to have faith in Master and the Fa. One righteous thought will suppress hundreds of evils. Teacher will have the final say on everything. Please do not comply with their demands. You need to position yourself properly by making the right choice.”
With the sound of the gavel, the trial started. My heart pounded, and I sent righteous thoughts. As the judge read the accusation, I recited Master’s poems in my mind:
“In life, nothing sought,In death, regretting naught;Washing away all wrong thought,Buddhahood, with lessadversity, is wrought.”(“Nothing Kept” from Hong Yin)
and:“Imprisoned as you are,don’t be sorrowful or sadCarry on with righteous thoughts and actions,and the Fa is with youCalmly reflect on the attachments you haveRemove your human thoughtsand evil will naturally die out”(“Don’t Be Sad” from Hong Yin II)
At that moment, I did not feel any resentment. The judge accused me, “You used a heretical religion to undermine the implementation of the law. Are you guilty?”
I gave him no answer until he asked me for the third time. I said, “You know what Falun Dafa is and how it has been persecuted for so many years. You also know what Falun Dafa practitioners have been doing. I have committed no crimes. Jiang Zemin is the culprit. He started this unprecedented persecution using his power, and he has committed atrocities against the Chinese people and the people of the world. I refuse to answer any of your questions today. I suggest that you do not follow Jiang! If you do, you will have to pay back your wrongdoings in the future.”
After I finished, the judge asked again if I had committed a crime. I reiterated that I refused to answer any of his questions, because if I did, I would be sending him into harm’s way.” He did not have anything to say in response.
In the end, the judge asked, “Do you have anything to say? I replied, “Nothing in the law states that Falun Dafa is illegal. It will not be long before Jiang Zemin is brought to justice. I hope that you will treat Dafa practitioners with kindness. That’s the best thing you can do for yourself.”
I was asked to sign documents; I refused. The judge then announced, “Court adjourned!” and said, “You can go!”
My son asked, “Do we need to come back?” and the reply was “No!”
Following this battle between righteousness and evil, my faith in Master and the Fa became even stronger. I have also found many of my attachments, such as showing off, competitiveness and wanting to prove myself right. I will pay more attention to looking inward, get rid of these attachments and do the three things well so that Master will not have to shoulder my problems.
I will fulfill my vows and go home with Master!
