I'm a 16 year-old High School student and I have been practicing Falun Dafa for 15 months. I had a dream the other day about sending forth righteous thoughts to eliminate the evil.

There was a huge field where I could see quite a lot of people sitting in meditation. They appeared to be sending forth righteous thought to eliminate the evil. I could see lots of evil beings in the sky, flying around, doing bad things. I also could see what practitioners were thinking about in their mind and how it affected the evil.

I saw three different situations for practitioners when sending forth righteous thoughts.

One practitioner sat there sending out clear, pure, and righteous thoughts. When he started to do it, a very bright and thick ray of light came out from his body, and it directly went to the sky, and killed the evil beings. It was so powerful that evil beings were killed instantly. He was able to focus on reciting Master's verse for the whole time: "The Fa rectifies the cosmos, the evil is completely eliminated."

I saw another practitioner who also sat there sending forth righteous thoughts to eliminate evil. But his mind was not as righteous as the first one. It was OK, yet his state of mind was not that good. I also saw a ray of light coming from his body, but it was not as bright or as powerful as the first one. This ray of light went out and hit some evil beings in the sky. Yet he was not able to kill those evil beings. It just injured them. This practitioner was thinking righteous thoughts but at one point, he made a mistake and started to think about something else during the 5 minutes. He was sending forth righteous thoughts by reciting Master's verse, "the Fa rectifies the cosmos, the evil is completely eliminated" for a while and all of sudden he started to think, "the Fa rectifies the cosmos...by the way, practice tomorrow starts at 7 or eight?..."

In the last case, I saw a practitioner with bad thoughts, which were filled with all kinds of human desires and attachments. He had many thoughts in his mind. He tried to send out righteous thoughts. But he did not even know what he was doing. His mind was not in concentration. Actually he did nothing other than just sit there, pretending that he was also sending out righteous thoughts. There was a very tiny and small ray, very thin, almost as thin as a thread that came out from him. It hit some evil beings, but it didn't do anything; the evil was laughing at him, and kept on committing bad deeds. They seemed to be saying, "What are you doing? You are just tickling me...ha ha ha." It was really bad.

When I saw these things in my dream, I woke up. It was quite interesting. I told my family and practitioners around me about what I saw. They all agreed that we should have only clear, pure and righteous thoughts while we are sending out righteous thoughts to eliminate the evil. I hope every practitioner becomes aware of this.

While I was seeing this, this question came up to me: when we send out righteous thoughts, if we have bad thoughts in our mind, would it strengthen the evil beings and give them the power? I do not know why this question came up. But I think we should think about this question seriously and really work on clearing our bad thoughts to ensure that we really send out only firm, clear and pure thoughts. So that we can achieve the goal of eliminating the evil completely.
