We Should Focus on Saving People in Our Efforts to Secure the Release of Fellow Practitioners from Detention
(Minghui.org) In China, Falun Dafa practitioners have hired lawyers to defend practitioners who are persecuted. I wish to talk about problems I noticed in the process of resisting the persecution and rescuing fellow practitioners from detention.
Basing Our Efforts on Validating Dafa
Master repeatedly said that practitioners must tell people about Falun Dafa and the persecution. Saving lives is our mission during the Fa-rectification period. If we focus on telling people about Falun Dafa, we are within the Fa. Thus, the path will be wide, and Master and divine beings can help.
Some practitioners are persecuted because they have loopholes in their xinxing. The gap may be significant and taken advantage of by the evil.
While trying to rescue a practitioner from incarceration, we should not overemphasize rescuing the practitioner. This could turn into a loophole for the old forces to exploit. They may think that the practitioner has significant human notions and attachments and may persecute him to “help” him discard the attachments. This gives the old forces an excuse to interfere with our efforts, making things difficult.
However, if we use this as an opportunity to tell people about Falun Dafa and the persecution, the old forces will not dare interfere because we are basing ourselves on the Fa. Thus, we will experience less interference.
If we are truly focused on validating Dafa and telling people about the persecution, we have to clarify the truth to all the people we talk to, including police officers, procurators, doormen and office personnel.
We should explain that we have greatly benefited from practicing Falun Dafa and that we are being wrongfully treated. We should remind them that even under Chinese law Falun Dafa is not illegal and practicing it does not violate any law.
If we focus our efforts on telling people about Falun Dafa and saving them, we are validating Dafa. If we do not overemphasize rescuing the practitioner, the old forces will not be able to take advantage of any loopholes to cause interference.
Practitioners Should Take the Lead
The legal system and lawyers are here for practitioners. In the process of rescuing fellow practitioners we can choose to hire lawyers. However, we should not be limited by the legal system. If we are overly dependent on the legal system and lawyers, it may become an attachment and give the old forces another excuse to interfere with our efforts. Only if we base ourselves on the Fa can we take the lead.
Besides, when defending our fellow practitioners, we should emphasize morality and address their conscience. When people's good sides are awakened, they will chose correctly.
Because people in China's legal system have been deceived by the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) propaganda against Falun Dafa, they may have a negative impression of practitioners. Therefore, they may use their power to make things more difficult for us, even though they may know that the practitioner did nothing wrong.
Therefore, we must do our best to help them understand why practitioners are persecuted and gain their understanding.
Only by doing the three things well can we disintegrate the persecution and save lives. This is also true in the process of rescuing practitioners. The more difficult the situation, the more important it is to look inside for reasons, so we can resolve the problems.
The time was extended for practitioners to validate Dafa and save lives. If we were to rely on lawyers to rescue practitioners, we would be looking outside and the old forces would create even more difficulties.
It is not wrong to hire lawyers, but we must understand that only by validating Dafa and saving lives can practitioners play the lead role in the rescue effort.
Sometimes lawyers encounter great difficulties in defending practitioners. At critical moments we must base ourselves on the Fa to guarantee that we are playing a leading role.
If we improve our xinxing before doing things and base ourselves on the Fa, we will be able to disintegrate the persecution and validate Dafa.
However, this is not easy. Thus, we must look inside for reasons for any interference, find our hidden attachments, and discard them. If we correct ourselves and base ourselves on the Fa, divine beings will help us.
