[PureInsight.org] Charles Li, I first learned that you had been arrested and abducted in China while I was busy doing my own things at home. My immediate reaction was indifference and detachment towards your situation, as if it had nothing to do with me.
The next day, I kept on hearing and reading news about you, and I kept running into fellow practitioners who were busy rescuing you. Then I remembered Teacher's words, "Not a single thing that happens in ordinary human society is coincidental." (From "Lecture at the Fa-Conference in Canada") Thus, I looked inward, and it suddenly came to me: You and I are one body; therefore, your thing is my thing, and a crime against you is a crime against Dafa.
The first time I sent forth righteous thoughts to save you, the interference was so severe that I stopped halfway. I felt I wasn't even able to help you by sending forth righteous thoughts. It was just as what Master said, "This 'oddness' will stop your practice." (From "Demonic Interference in Cultivation" in Lecture Six of Zhuan Falun.)
But I felt completely different today, I can feel your pain and your anticipation to be rescued. It is as if I were held in jail. I immediately sent forth righteous thoughts, to join forces with other Dafa practitioners, as one body. At that moment, I saw you were enveloped within a circle of rays of light. Layer after layer of evil substances, thick as a fortress, disappeared before they could touch you.
While sending forth righteous thoughts for you for the second time, I burst into tears. These tears were for you, for the eliminated substances and beings, for the sacredness of Dafa, for the invincibility of justice and truth, and for the change in my attitude.
Charles, we are one with you. Because more and more fellow practitioners are participating in the rescue efforts, it will not be long until you can safely return to the US! That is for sure!
