[Minghui Net] I am a practitioner who cultivates with supernormal abilities unlocked. Before the Zhongnanhai appeal on April 25th, 1999, I hardly ever mentioned anything about my supernormal abilities and celestial eye to others. I kept a close watch on my mentality of showing off and attachment of zealotry, and I was afraid that I would not be able handle myself well and do bad deeds or bring up other practitioners' attachments if I talked about my supernormal abilities. I also worried that I would have demonic interference from my own mind. Therefore, I somewhat rejected supernormal abilities. I didn't know what the purpose was for me to see these things. I sometimes even begged Teacher to lock them up for me.

In October 2000, after the publication on Clearwisdom of a Western practitioner's article "Eliminate Demonic Nature" with Master's approval note, I felt I had been enlightened a great deal. I also felt "a single move of my mind could break mountains in half" as the Western practitioner did. That same night when I was meditating, I was thinking about eliminating my remaining bad thoughts from the old universe and that I could not always rely on Teacher's power to eliminate them for me. At that time, I still did not realize that I should also actively destroy the demons outside of myself.

By the Spring Festival of 2001 (around February 2001), I came to realize that while destroying my own bad things, I needed to destroy the head of the evil and those most vicious people and police who persecuted Dafa. Suddenly, one day while I was at work, I saw a huge demon running towards me. I was anxious, and as soon as I thought, "eliminate it," I saw I had countless arms, and one of them reached over and grabbed the demon and turned it into water. Then, three or four more demons came towards me, and I saw the top of my head shoot out a light beam at them. They disappeared in a split second. From this, I began to realize that I could use mind-intent and supernormal abilities to actively destroy demons. So I then began to destroy them at every moment. However, since I had poor enlightenment quality and never heard Teacher explicitly talk about practitioners eliminating demons, I sometimes questioned whether what I saw and experienced in other dimensions really existed. In my mind, I sometimes questioned it and sometimes firmly believed it, often going back and forth. I also had a slight trace of hatred towards the demons I saw. As a result, I often felt very tired after eliminating the demons, and needed to double the meditation time to replenish my energy.

After the publication of Teacher's article "Dafa Disciples' Righteous Thoughts are Powerful," my mind was completely affirmed. Teacher said, "In fact, some disciples and sentient beings in different realms who are able to use their supernormal abilities in different dimensions have been using their supernormal abilities and gong potency (gongli) to take part in wiping out the evil beings that damage Dafa." By then I understood: I was one of the practitioners to whom Teacher was referring. I was correct about what I had come to realize beforehand. But because I was not pure enough in my mind, had a slight trace of uncertainty towards the Fa, and had the attachment of being afraid of attachments plus the psychology of passively accepting the evil deep in my mind, I moved slowly in actively and firmly helping Teacher rectify the Fa.

Teacher said, "What is a Buddha? 'Tathagata' is what humans call someone who's come with the truth and the power to do what he wants, whereas real Buddhas are guardians of the cosmos and are responsible for all righteous elements in the cosmos." (Speech by Master Li Hongzhi at the Western US Cultivation Experience Sharing Conference of Falun Dafa.) I understood that the reason I had all those abilities was to help Teacher rectify the Fa and to protect the Fa. I am a particle of Dafa, and thus need to actively participate in the Fa-rectification. I should therefore actively eliminate the evil. At the same time, I realized that in the process of eliminating the evil I shouldn't mix in ordinary human thoughts as I did before. Eliminating the evil is rectifying the Fa. Eliminating the evil beings that are unsaveable is being truly compassionate to people and treasuring people.

That evening I said to Teacher with a pure mind, "Teacher, I begged you to close my celestial eye and supernormal abilities. Now I realize that I should help Teacher eliminate the evil. Please open up my abilities again." After that, I actively used the Great Soul-Catching Method to eliminate the evil. First I reduced it into a tar-like poison, then I turned it into ashes. The whole process took half an hour. After that day, I actively eliminated the evil daily. I sometimes felt that I was short of time. I often used fireballs and cannon balls to eliminate demons. When a fireball was rolling on the ground, it would destroy any demon it touched. When using cannon balls to blow up demons, they immediately turned into white ashes. For bigger demons, I used the Great Soul-Catching Method to grab them in my hand. The ability could be as big as I wanted it to be. Sometimes I waved my hand and grabbed all the demons from one city and turned them into ashes with a single squeeze. Sometimes when I grabbed all the demons in my hand I would think, "Maybe I shouldn't do it all by myself. I should leave some for other practitioners to eliminate." But then I thought, "That is not right, in the Canada conference in Ottawa, Master clearly explained how to treat the evil: 'So in the process of eliminating it don't be lenient at all--just eliminate it!'" I realized I should use my abilities to their fullest extent and help in Fa-rectification as much as I could.

After eliminating a group of demons, another group would come up. I usually eliminated the head of the demons in one region first, starting from the top of the three-realms to eliminate them one layer at a time. Every night, I eliminated the big demons above the sky of Beijing. Sometimes I saw that I was not the only one eliminating evils and other practitioners were also doing it in the same place at the same time. I could see that other practitioners also had very strong abilities, even though they couldn't see them and didn't know it. Sometimes as soon as practitioners around me had righteous thoughts, their divine powers were sent out straight towards the demons. That was only what I could see from my level, and I didn't know how much more powerful their abilities really were. Actually, when we treat ourselves as true particles of Dafa, doing what we should do in the process of Fa-rectification, then we are effectively eliminating evil. Master said "Dafa disciples are truly great, because what you are cultivating is the ultimate Great Law of the cosmos, because you have validated Dafa with righteous thoughts..." (The Disciples' Greatness) When we use our righteous true thoughts, in the other dimensions we are doing great Fa-rectification.

Earlier I felt that I was not doing well. There were also a lot of human mentalities that caused me to be reluctant to write this article. However, when I was finally convinced by other practitioners to write this article and share my experiences of actively eliminating the evil, I saw groups of demons come over to interfere. I knew the process of writing this article was again for me to actively eliminate the evil. So I strengthened my righteous thoughts and decided to write this for everyone. I hope it will help to validate Dafa and to encourage other practitioners to firmly believe in Teacher, and treasure this opportunity that only comes once in millions of years. In the process of rising up to our own highest levels, every disciple should take every step correctly and be a great God.
