We often met "Falun Gong" practitioners whose thinking and behavior were quite different from ordinary people. They were all victims of Li Hongzhi's fallacies.
For the first, Li Hongzhi said, "I plant in the practitioners' lower abdomen a Falun that rotates 24 hours a day", claiming that "Falun will cultivate the practitioner even when he doesn't practice". This is the trap of "Falun Gong". Once a practitioner got lost in such a trap, he would feel extremely anxious.
Then Li Hongzhi told the practitioners that they were no longer "ordinary" and their behaviors should be different from the ordinary people. For instance, to be different from ordinary people, when "Falun Gong" practitioners fell ill, they could not have medical treatment for believing that being sick was "eliminating" Karma while having medical treatment disrupted the action of eliminating Karma.
Further more, Li Hongzhi preached that his "Falun Dafa" was the only right way of cultivation. He said, "Why shall you add other elements in such great Dafa? It will not work even if you add a few other elements which may confuse your body that you are cultivating as well as any achievement you make in your practicing. By doing that you are disrupting your way forward and you will not find your home way."
He asked his followers to completely abandon what they had learnt before. In the guise of "spreading Dafa", Li Hongzhi was attempted to have a thorough wash on the practitioners' brain so that they could no longer know what was right. Then he asked the practitioners to recite his patched books from the start to the end, so that his fallacies and his evil thoughts might be engrafted in the practitioners, and his supreme position might be maintained among his followers. As a result of Li Hongzhi's brainwash, some "Falun Gong" practitioners got very clinging and had no common sense.
The term "home" used by Li Hongzhi refers to his illusory Falun realm. After practicing "Dafa", you would be different from the ordinary people. You needed no longer care about the principles and laws abided by the ordinary people and your own family that belonged to you before you practice "Falun Gong". Just read books on "Falun" and submitted to the master while forgetting any other things. "No Buddha, Tao, God or demon can wave me, and in this way it is hopeful for me to succeed." At the proper time the master will bring you "home".
Li Hongzhi asked his followers to read his "Zhuan Falun" repeatedly, claiming that if reading it repeatedly, you would find Li Hongzhi' s soul jump out of the book and you could have your soul leave your body…Consequently some practitioners suffered mental disorder on the way of pursuing such magic effect. The less educated the practitioners were the faster they become mentally disorder in practicing "Falun Gong". Certain practitioners mentally collapsed and became mad after reading "Zhuan Falun" for just one week.
What is worse is that Li Hongzhi ordered others to "spread Fa" by practicing on the sides of the streets or roads. (Li Hongzhi said that the highest level of Dafa could not be reached by practicing Gong but through reading Zhuan Falun repeatedly). The newly joined disciples in particular had to get out to "spread Fa" so as to advertise Falun Dafa and more importantly, to make the newly comers thick-skinned. Then Li Hongzhi himself could control the practitioners spiritually.
In this way, an ordinary man would totally break away from his normal life and be completely controlled by Li Hongzhi in less than half a year.
