(Clearwisdom.net) Once, when I was dreaming, I saw that the moment I began to clarify the truth about Falun Gong to people lumps of some unidentified substance suddenly surrounded me and didn't let me clarify the truth. Without hesitation, I started to send forth righteous thoughts. The stuff dispersed right away, but it wasn't eliminated. To my surprise, there was a face of myself among the stuff--that "me" was preventing me from clarifying the truth (in addition to that other stuff).

This made me remember that, sometimes when I've clarified the truth, I've sent forth righteous thoughts right away to clear out any evil, in the event that I'd encounter obstructions or problems. Now, I wonder: Was there a problem with my xinxing? Or was there a shortcoming in me? Like the stuff in my dream, it sometimes dispersed, but wasn't totally eliminated. These evil things still existed because I had attachments and shortcomings. Because of this, I wasn't able to achieve the full, mighty effect of sending forth righteous thoughts. In other words, I wasn't yet righteous. The permanent solution for me to do a good job in spreading the Fa and clarifying the truth is to read more and study the Fa more, in order to raise my xinxing and dig out the roots of my attachments.

I used to think it was enough to just do well with what a Fa-rectification period Dafa disciple should do. It looks simple, but in reality it's not. There are many problems, tribulations and temptations in the process, so you have to put in a lot of effort if you want to take every step well. On the other hand, it is simple, because Teacher and Dafa's mighty external power are helping us, as are our indestructible determination and righteous minds. Nothing's impossible. Why aren't we confident in ourselves? Are we ultimately not firm enough in the Fa?
