(Minghui.org) The police recently attempted to further persecute a fellow practitioner who was already on bail for cultivating Falun Dafa. They intended to take her to court again. She looked inside for her attachments and sent righteous thoughts to disintegrate the evil. Also, practitioners outside of China made repeated phone calls to the authorities involved and explained the truth about Falun Dafa to them. They told them that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is persecuting Falun Dafa practitioners and how evil the Party is. With Master’s protection and fellow practitioners’ efforts, we thwarted their efforts to persecute her. Here are two examples of how we cooperated to bring that about.

Eliminate Zealotry and Evaluate Good and Bad Based on the Fa

The police framed an elderly practitioner in our area and took her into custody in March of 2022. She was not afraid and kept clarifying the truth about Falun Dafa to the police. When they searched her home, two young officers treated her politely and even left her a copy of Zhuan Falun. The police took her to the hospital six times for a physical, and each time her blood pressure was over 220 mmHg. After being quarantined in a hotel for two days, she was released on bail. Back at home, she wrote a letter explaining the truth about Falun Dafa to the police.

However, she did not realize that she had developed zealotry. She praised the police officers, time after time, in front of her husband and son. She could not see that she was going overboard, even after fellow practitioners pointed it out to her.

Before World Falun Dafa Day in May, the police initiated another round of persecution targeting practitioners. The two police officers who were polite to her before shook their fingers in her face and called her out, threatening to take her to the police station and then to the Procuratorate. They also badmouthed Falun Dafa.

The police took her to the Procuratorate the next day, but it was closed. They then planned to take her directly to court on Monday.

A local outbreak of COVID put the community on lockdown. She also had symptoms of dizziness on Monday because of her high blood pressure. She had to stay home in bed. For all these reasons, the police could not take her as planned.

A fellow practitioner visited her during that time. They shared experiences of looking within for why these things were occurring. She understood that she had made the mistake of evaluating good and bad based on her human notions instead of based on the Fa, as a practitioner should do. The evil took advantage of her loopholes to make the officers commit crimes against Falun Dafa. She worked on correcting herself immediately. Our local practitioners also sent forth righteous thoughts to help her.

Her family later went to the station to talk to the police. It so happened that practitioners from outside of China had called the police station at the same time. They told the police the truth about Falun Dafa and the persecution, and the officers listened for a long time. The officer who’d threatened to take the practitioner in question to court said to her afterward, “Ma’am, how are you? We will not pursue your case any further. We will visit you again sometime later to assure your wellbeing.” A seemingly relentless act of persecution was negated.

Fellow Practitioners Help a Woman Overcome Obstacles

A fellow practitioner, Lei, in our area came down with serious illness karma. Her symptoms, including a persistent fever, lasted for more than three months. The prolonged suffering broke her will, so she gave up on trying to overcome the tribulation with righteous thoughts and decided to take medication.

Lei tried home remedies, traditional Chinese medicine, and Western medicine. A Chinese medicine doctor told her that she was seriously ill, and all her organs were affected. Her symptoms got worse by the day. She finally got so weak that she could not sit up for even five minutes. She could not eat by herself, so her daughters had to feed her. She could only eat porridge and lost more than 20 pounds.

Lei’s daughters were worried about her, but they also had their own families to take care of. They had to urge their sons to study. One daughter had twin boys about to take their high school entrance exams. The other daughter had one boy getting ready to take his middle school entrance exam. Her daughters were burning their candles at both ends.

Her family was also worried about her. Her two sisters and brother also practiced Falun Dafa, and they came from out of town to visit her. They shared their experiences with her and encouraged her. She said she understood, but she still could not overcome her situation.

An elderly practitioner, Chun, in our area has experienced many tribulations, and she has firm faith in Master and Dafa. After she heard about Lei, Chun went to visit her. When Lei said that she could not sit up for even five minutes, Chun said, “These symptoms are not real. Come to my home, and we will help you to break through this illness karma.” Lei was happy about the invitation, and her family was supportive of her going. Chun told all of Lei’s family to recite, “Falun Dafa is good.” They all agreed.

Chun asked two other practitioners to help; she invited them to join her starting the next day to read the Fa with Lei. On the way to these two practitioners’ homes to ask for their help, Chun felt a surge of energy. She knew she was doing the right thing and was very relieved.

Lei was already dressed when Chun arrived the next day to pick her up, but Lei was still in bed, saying she was very weak. Concerned, her daughters asked, “Can you still go if you are like this?” Chun asked Master for strengthening and sent forth righteous thoughts: “Disintegrate the interference so that she can come home with me!” Lei’s son-in-law came a while later and helped Lei into the car. After the car arrived at Chun’s building, Lei surprisingly got up to the fourth floor to Chun’s home without her son-in-law’s help. It was really like Master said: “Cultivation depends on one’s own efforts, while the transformation of gong is done by one’s master.” (Lecture One, Zhuan Falun)

Before they started reading the Fa, Chun briefly shared her experience. She was very understanding of Lei’s situation and said, “We should not be moved by Lei’s symptoms. We should all firmly believe in Master and Dafa.” While they read the Fa, Lei kept changing positions; sometimes she sat on the sofa and sometimes on the floor. But no one was bothered by this. Everyone believed that she would overcome the difficulties, and the group would help her disintegrate the interference. They read Hong Yin and Essentials for Further Advancement, shared cultivation experiences, and sent forth righteous thoughts. Everyone was bathed in the Buddha light.

When it was time to do the exercises, Lei said that she was weak and could not. The other practitioners encouraged her and asked Master to strengthen her. For the first three days, she only did the first, third, and fourth exercises, and she had to take a rest in the middle. Over the following several days, she also tried to do the second exercise, the Falun Standing Stance, but wasn’t able to complete it. The other practitioners kept encouraging her. She eventually finished the second exercise on the eighth and ninth days.

While doing the Falun Standing Stance, Lei’s arms were trembling and her clothes were shaking. To strengthen Lei, the other three practitioners recited in their minds, “When it’s difficult to endure, you can endure it. When it’s impossible to do, you can do it.” (Lecture Nine, Zhuan Falun) When she completed the second exercise, everyone was in tears. We all felt Master’s strengthening and sincerely thanked him.

Lei’s persistent symptoms completely disappeared in nine days. She fully recovered. She and her family all witnessed the power of Falun Dafa.
