My Experience and Understanding of Sending Forth Righteous Thoughts: Be Absolutely Strict, Absolutely Righteous
(Clearwisdom.net) Before, when we were making CDs, a practitioner gave us a big CD burner and I was very happy. But the fourth CD writer broke down when I just started using it. Two days later, the third CD writer also had problems. My daughter told me, "Probably it is a demon trying to interfere and cause damage. You can send forth righteous thoughts to eliminate it." I recited the Fa-rectifying verse silently, but in my heart I thought it was not the case. Then, we began to have problems one after another; several other CD writers had problems alternately. I felt very bad because Dafa practitioners lived frugally to save money to buy all these recordable CDs. In the evening, my daughter came home and I told her about the situation. She said, "Should we look into our Xinxing, then continue to send forth righteous thoughts?" I told her, "Don't relate these issues foolishly. It is a normal phenomenon for a machine to break down when it is getting old. It has nothing to do with demons and Xinxing. Why didn't the smaller one ever break down?"
The next morning, my daughter wrote Teacher's Fa-rectifying verse on a piece of paper and put it up on the CD burner. Then she sent forth righteous thoughts together with my 7-year-old granddaughter, Lele, and suggested that the spirits of the computer and CD burner send forth righteous thoughts with us. As a result, all CD writers were back to normal except for the fourth one. I was shocked, and it was very clear that a demon had interfered and caused damage. In the afternoon, the third CD writer broke down when I started making CDs. This time I asked Lele to send forth righteous thoughts with me immediately. Since then, not even one bad CD was made.
Although Lele is still young, she started studying the Fa at the age of three, reading Zhuan Falun by herself at four, and she is really a "veteran practitioner." From then on, Lele has sent forth righteous thoughts every day with me. Several days later, the fourth CD writer was miraculously back to normal.
When the problems had just started, the demon took advantage of a loophole in my mind to interfere with the Fa-rectification, since I treated the problems of the CD burner using human thoughts and notions. I was touched deeply by this incident and realized I must study the Fa seriously in order to do Dafa work better. Also, we need to have righteous faith, righteous thoughts and righteous enlightenment in every place and in every situation. We should not have any human notions and should be "absolutely strict, absolutely righteous."
In the article "Cautionary Advice," Teacher told us, "If you do not change the human logic that you, as an ordinary human, have formed deep in your bones over thousands of years, you will be unable to break away from this superficial human shell and reach Consummation." Master also said, "If every one of you can understand the Fa from the depths of your mind, that will truly be the manifestation of the Fa whose power knows no boundary--the reappearance of the mighty Buddha Fa in the human world!"
Going over this article, I ascended from a perceptual to a rational understanding of Master's cautionary advice of "Righteous Fa spreading, ten thousand demons blocking," and "Every pass must be broken through, everywhere are demons." (Hongyin)
One day, suddenly I felt terribly sick in my stomach and vomited continuously. In the beginning I thought it was because of eliminating karma so I just endured and suffered. The second day I didn't get any better and I realized it was not karma but the persecution of a demon, because before when eliminating the karma I always recovered quickly and it was less severe. Then I asked Lele to send forth righteous thoughts with me. Only 7 minutes later I felt better. Then I had a throat ache. My daughter sent righteous thoughts with me, and all my symptoms of karma purging disappeared quickly.
Several days later, one night, Lele got sick, and said she felt nauseated and had a stomachache. I told her that it was caused by a demon, but we could help her send forth righteous thoughts and she could also recite the Fa-rectifying verse herself. She fell asleep quietly within ten minutes. By the next day she was lively again.
One day, my daughter had a severe headache. She sent forth righteous thoughts, then the pain moved to her throat. She continued to send forth righteous thoughts, and when the pain moved to her eyes, she sent forth righteous thoughts again. Sometimes, it would take several times before the demon could be completely eliminated and then she could recover.
When I began to write this article, suddenly, my head felt painful and swollen, and my two arms were especially heavy as if filled with lead. I knew it was the demon's interference preventing me from writing the article. I asked Lele to send forth righteous thoughts together with me, and felt much better after ten minutes, and just a little sleepy. But I realized right away that this was a human notion. I am a Dafa practitioner--how could I be driven by a demon! I immediately picked up the pen and continued to write the article. The discomfort disappeared right away and I did not feel sleepy any more.
Teacher said in the article "The Effect of Righteous Thoughts",
"I have asked disciples to send forth righteous thoughts because these so-called evil beings are in fact nothing. Yet because Dafa disciples' mercy has been taken advantage of by the old forces, the evil beings that are protected by the old forces have been deliberately persecuting, so what Dafa disciples are enduring is no longer their own karma, but something they should not endure under the evil beings' persecution. Moreover, these evil beings are extremely base and filthy, and are not worthy of playing any role in the Fa-rectification. In order to lessen the persecution of Dafa and Dafa disciples, I have asked disciples to send forth righteous thoughts to clear away the damage these beings have deliberately done to the Fa-rectification, thereby lessening what Dafa disciples should not endure during the persecution and, at the same time, saving all beings and consummating Dafa disciples' paradises."
We send forth righteous thoughts constantly to eradicate the evil and the old forces. They really have come to the point where they frenziedly persecute and interfere with us. I cultivate completely locked up, but now I can feel that the war raging between the righteous forces and the evil forces has really become a close combat and is extremely intense. Therefore, the Fa-rectification requires us to be "absolutely strict, absolutely righteous."
We must think of ourselves as Dafa particles in every moment and use Dafa to measure our every word and deed. We must remember we are great divine beings in every moment, so that we will not leave any gaps for the evil. We can then work in the Fa-rectification and not suffer any losses while clarifying the truth and saving all beings.
I wanted to write these experiences and understandings one month ago, but did not start writing. After reading the encouraging experiences of fellow practitioners on Dafa websites I wrote this to use as a reference for fellow practitioners who have also experienced the same interference. Please kindly point out my mistakes so that they can be corrected. Thank you.
