In the months leading up to the Olympic Games, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) began a massive campaign to illegally arrest large numbers of Falun Gong practitioners. Fear and intimidation were used to harass those that escaped arrest. The Chinese authorities even attempted to incite conflicts between Falun Gong practitioners and the rest of Chinese society. Authorities repeatedly pressured local work organizations to monitor their employees who practice Falun Gong, especially those practitioners who had been arrested in the past and known to the local 610 Office. The authorities ordered the work organizations to monitor these practitioners around the clock. Some practitioners' family members gave in to the threats and cooperated with the authorities. The authorities have made these practitioners live in terror and fear.
One day my husband said to me, "Your work organization called and asked me to go in to sign an agreement." "What agreement?" I asked. He said, "The Olympic Games are approaching. It is about you." I decided that I must not allow my family assist in the persecution of Falun Gong. My husband didn't realize it was a form of persecution, so he had already agreed. I explained to him that the CCP was asking Falun Gong practitioners' work organizations and family members to restrict practitioners' personal freedom and to incite hatred against practitioners and that these actions are against the law. I told my husband that he mustn't cooperate with the authorities or participate in the persecution of Falun Gong. Once my husband realized what this was about, he told me, "Then you should tell them that I cannot go because I am busy." The local authorities called my husband, but he responded to their demand with righteousness.
The next day, I called the chairman who had contacted my husband and told him that my husband was too busy to go and asked what this was about. He said, "The CCP office and a secretary of the CCP wanted to talk to your husband and asked him to sign an agreement." "What agreement does he need to sign?" I asked. He said, "He is required to sign an agreement to watch you and prevent you from doing this and that. Alternatively, you can guarantee in writing that you will not practice Falun Gong again." I said, "This is impossible. Falun Gong requires its students to follow the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance and become better people, become even better than good people. Falun Gong is beneficial to people and society in hundreds of ways and does no harm at all. If you don't allow me to be a good person, what kind of person do you want me to be?" I told him that the CCP is using the Olympic Games to incite people's hatred against Falun Gong and to create conflicts. For years the CCP has been using this approach to stir up hatred against Falun Gong practitioners and to pressure their work organizations and family members to participate in the persecution. Many family members of Falun Gong practitioners have been persecuted because of their association. Many families have been torn apart and married couples separated. A driver working for the Baoding local government couldn't bear the pressure and choked his wife, who was a Falun Gong practitioner, to death. These tragedies are the results of the CCP's promotion of hatred. The chairman responded that he must report this to the secretary.
Afterwards, I started sending forth righteous thoughts to completely disintegrate all the dark minions, rotten demons and evil spirit of the CCP from other dimensions in order to stop them from manipulating these people to persecute Falun Gong practitioners. Next I approached the secretary and the chairman of the CCP for my work organization. I explained that I was thinking of their own good. Falun Gong is a Buddha school cultivation practice. For years the CCP has been suppressing Falun Gong. If there is no justice on earth, Heaven will see that there is justice. I was thankful that my work organization rarely participated in the persecution of Falun Gong during all these years, but if I should comply with the demand to guarantee in writing not to practice Falun Gong, I would be giving my consent to the persecution. I urged them not to participate in the persecution of Falun Gong and told them that one day they will understand. I assured them that I would do nothing to obstruct the Olympic Games. The wicked CCP is channelling people's passion for the Olympic Games to incite hatred against Falun Gong. They said, "If that's the case, we can relax now. Go back to your work. Don't make your leaders worry about you."
During the process of eliminating the evil beings and resisting the persecution, it dawned on me that I mustn't be afraid and that I must clarify the truth to whoever creates problems. During the process, I kept sending powerful righteous thoughts to thoroughly disintegrate the dark minions, the rotten demons and the evil spirit of the CCP from other dimensions that hampered these work leaders from understanding the truth about Falun Gong and from being saved. While I was clarifying the truth about Falun Gong, I revealed the fact that the wicked CCP has been spreading lies about Falun Gong to incite people's hatred and to justify its suppression of Falun Gong. I also talked about the severe consequences the persecution of Falun Gong has caused to families and communities in China. During the process, I understood that it is important to talk to people rationally and peacefully and to not form judgements. When I revealed facts about the wicked CCP, I was saving my audience. It was important to choose the content based on the audience's acceptance level, focusing on the facts so that people could naturally come to the conclusion that the CCP is wicked.
This experience has enabled me to better understand something Teacher has said. Teacher said,
"[...] once you take up Dafa, whatever it is you encounter--good or bad--it is a good thing" ("Teaching the Fa in San Francisco, 2005")
We do not anticipate tribulations. But when we do face tribulations, we will help people understand the truth and save them, as long as we treat ourselves as cultivators, respond to problems with righteous thoughts and treat people with compassion. We are Falun Gong practitioners who have a good understanding of the Fa. Teacher has bestowed on us the strong power of the Fa and, thus, made us capable of eliminating the evil that is manipulating the world's people. It is the mission of Falun Gong practitioners in the Fa-rectification period to clarify the truth to people and offer them Teacher's salvation.
