On Eliminating the Old Forces
(Clearwisdon.net) Now is the final stage of the Fa-rectification period, and the old forces in other dimensions are rampantly persecuting practitioners directly. The persecutions manifest in many different forms during our Fa-study, clarifying the truth and our daily cultivation, etc. The majority of the old forces hide deep inside practitioners' own thoughts, i.e. practitioners' own cosmic systems, and whenever we lower our guard or have omissions, they will rush up like a mob to interfere. Their interference causes practitioners to have impure and wild thoughts, sometimes prompting them to seek something externally, or even stir up conflicts with other practitioners. These are all instances in which practitioners fail to realize that the old evil forces are taking advantage of our own unpurified material fields to interfere and do damage. Also, practitioners' failure to eliminate the evil in a timely manner has given them the opportunity to continuously hide there, take advantage of our practitioners and interfere with both Fa-rectification and practitioners' individual cultivation.
Teacher said, "At present, the old forces are to be completely eradicated, regardless of whether the beings participating are positive or negative ones. All the evil beings that are participating in this are being eliminated during the Fa-rectification, no matter how high their levels are. With Fa-rectification it is completely different from ordinary cultivation." (Teacher's article "Path") I believe that when we send forth righteous thoughts, we should recite Teacher's verses and aim directly at all old forces that interfere and damage the Fa-rectification and directly eradicate them. These include the old forces within us as well as all space segments being pressed into and hiding within the Three-Realms. Teacher told us that the Falun never ceases to rotate and continuously transforms energy. I think we should utilize the Falun that Teacher gave us, the Fa-rectification verses and our own supernormal capabilities, every minute and every second, to eliminate the evil. We should do this all the time while we walk, eat, sleep and work. By doing this, we leave no room for the evil to interfere with and take advantage of practitioners. They will be completely eliminated. During this time we can clarify the truth to people better and save more lives.
In addition, it is also very important to maintain pure and righteous minds. A cultivator's own firm and unshakable righteous mind can automatically eradicate many degenerated substances wherever he or she goes.
