(Minghui.org) My department director called me on the morning of December 8, 2020, to tell me that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) was launching a “Zero-Out” campaign. The community Party secretary told me that, if I signed the three statements, my name would be deleted from the blacklist and they wouldn’t harass me anymore. If I didn’t sign, the future of my child would be affected. She said that it was voluntary, and I could sign or not sign. I told her that I would not sign.

Decision Time: Cultivating and Saving Sentient Beings

The director called me again the next day and said that the company’s Party secretary wanted to ask some questions. After I hung up, my face was covered in tears. If I agreed to their demands, I would not be cultivating myself well and I would destroy the sentient beings I was responsible for. I knew it was time that I let go of myself and put sentient beings first.

I decided that I would no longer avoid them—I had to clarify the truth to them in person. I felt Master was strengthening me after I had this thought. I also asked local practitioners to sent forth righteous thoughts for me. I had ample righteous thoughts myself and stayed calm.

What unfolded was as if it had been arranged. I regarded everyone in the secretary’s office as a family member as I calmly told them my story: “I was one of twins. I weighed only 1.5 kg and was weak and sick from the time I was born. I got seriously ill when my daughter was a year old. I started practicing Falun Dafa because doctors could not help me.

“I have never met Master Li, the founder of Falun Dafa, yet I haven’t spent a single penny on medication over the past more than 20 years because I am truly healthy. I became a good person and live by Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance. I work hard at my job, and I take good care of my parents, my child, and my parents-in-law.

“My ex-husband had an affair in 2013 and suggested we divorce in 2016. I agreed after I tried to save our family many times. It was terribly hard for me then, but I chose to let him live the life he wanted. We separated peacefully.

“I still visited his family like I used to. I wanted to make sure that things would not be much different for my daughter, except that her dad didn’t come home at night. I told her to respect her father and love him. I encouraged her to talk to him and be with him as much as possible. She got over the shadow of our divorce and became optimistic, happy, and confident.

“My ex-husband’s parents lived in my home because their other daughters were in other cities. Many of his relatives visited us throughout the year. On one occasion there were 16 of them in my house. I never complained. I got along well with them and treated them as if they were my sisters. My ex-husband worked in another city, so I sacrificed a lot for this family.

“Falun Dafa is the great way of the Buddha School. Falun Dafa has extended my life and taught me to be a good person. I should always consider others first.”

Clarifying the Truth: Never Betray Falun Gong

I asked the Party secretary and my director if they had read Zhuan Falun. They said they hadn’t. They were very biased, told me to sign the three statements, and tried to “transform” me. What did they want me to become? A liar? Evil and violent like the CCP? The Party secretary said the government had ruled that Falun Dafa was a cult.

I said to her, “The Ministry of Public Security listed 14 organizations as evil cults on April 9, 2005. Falun Gong is not on the list. I checked it before I came here. Please look at it here on my mobile phone.” She read the list herself.

I went on: “Liu Binjie, director of the General Administration of Press and Publication, issued Order No. 50 of the General Administration of Press and Publication of the People’s Republic of China on March 1, 2011, which repealed the ban on Falun Gong books issued in 1999. It clearly states that it is legal to print and own Falun Gong books and materials.

“We say China is ruled by law, don’t we? I am a Chinese citizen. Article 36 of the Constitution says that citizens of the People’s Republic of China have freedom of belief. The law defines people’s behaviors but not people’s beliefs. Citizens have the freedom to decide what they believe or don’t believe. No political party has the right to demand that people change their thoughts. As the Chinese saying goes, ‘A small favor shall be repaid with gratitude.’ Falun Dafa gave me a second life. I will never ever betray it.”

I explained to them how the Tiananmen Self-Immolation incident was staged and also about the pandemic. I told them that they would be blessed if they treated practitioners kindly and protected them.

The Party secretary listened to me and said that she would not make the call. She thanked me when we parted. My director said, “When I learned that they wanted you, I was disgusted. You only want to be a good person. Why do they want to persecute you?”

Thanks to Master’s strengthening and practitioners’ help, the evil factors were dissolved and two lives were saved.

I felt so light when I walked out of my company. Master saw my heart to save sentient beings and helped me walk.

Several days later my director sent me a text message saying the community Party secretary, Zhang, would call me. I rang her back and wanted to know more. She said, “Nothing serious. You should be more determined and will be okay.” I knew that was a hint from Master that I should be more determined in my belief. I read a related article on the Minghui website and notified other practitioners to send forth righteous thoughts for me.

Zhang called me and said, “Now there is a “Zero-Out” campaign. We have four practitioners in our community. Three of them have signed the statements. You are the last one.” I asked her if I’d violated any laws and why was she insisting that I sign the three statements. She said that the government had already announced it.

I read Order No 50 issued by the General Administration of Press and Publication and told her that Falun Gong was completely legal in China and that the function of the community center was to serve people not harass them. The community center didn’t have the authority to make rules or laws or to enforce them. Nor did they have the right to harass people. I also read Articles 5, 33 and 36 of the Constitution to her.

She said she just had to do her job. I replied, “Falun Gong practitioners are all good people. It is a heavenly principle that good will be rewarded and evil punished. Now the pandemic has spread widely. You should protect yourself and your family in these hard times. You will be blessed if you protect Falun Gong practitioners and treat them kindly within your line of work.”

She said that she would not require me to sign the three statements but that she would come to my company and take a photo of me with her so that she could complete her assignment. I told her that she would interfere with my work and I consider it to be harassment. She hung up.

I rang her in the evening and said, “You should reflect on the orders from your superiors. If they order you to set a fire and kill people, would you do it? Treating others kindly is actually the same as treating yourself kindly. I won’t allow you to come to my company. I consider it harassment. I will hire a lawyer to sue you and protect my interests. I am telling you this in advance.” She said she now understood.

A month later the Party secretary of my company called to tell me that the Party secretary of the community center had been replaced and was now secretary Guo. I was told to send a copy of my identification (ID) card to her so that she could hand it over to her superiors. “I am not a criminal and will not hand in my photo,” I said to the Party secretary of my company. She also told me to call Guo. I didn’t.

Guo called me the next day. She was very devious and tried all kinds of things to get me to sign. Although I was not swayed, I could tell that she’d been profoundly poisoned by the CCP and felt sorry for her. I clarified the truth to her from the legal perspective for 20 minutes. Finally she sounded okay and only said that I didn’t cooperate with her. I wished her and her family a good future.

I thought the harassment had ended, but the next morning a police officer called me and demanded that I cooperate with him. I refused. He warned me that if I didn’t, officers from every department would descend on my home. I told him that he and his family would be blessed if he protected Dafa practitioners and that I would call Guo. He thanked me.

I first went to see another practitioner. The practitioner told me not to be afraid, that we only wanted to save Guo. Practitioners helped send forth righteous thoughts for over an hour for me. I rang Guo that afternoon. Other practitioners were sending righteous thoughts again. I told Guo that the police had talked to me and that I said that I would not cooperate. She only said okay and hung up.

This evil and illegal persecution was completely dissolved. Thanks to Master’s protection and strengthening and the practitioners’ selfless help, I passed this test successfully.

I realized from this experience that, as long as I firmly believe in Master and the Fa and can let go of myself and think of others, I can pass every test and overcome every hardship.
