Send Forth Righteous Thoughts to Help Detained Practitioners
(Clearwisdom.net) During the last several months the evil thugs have frequently arrested fellow Dafa practitioners. I recognized my own responsibility and therefore I kept sending forth righteous thoughts to eliminate the evil in other dimensions, and help those detained practitioners step out of detention and away from the persecution. However, when I sent forth righteous thoughts, I had been having this kind of understanding that my righteous thoughts were "auxiliary" to their efforts of breaking the arrangements of the old forces and the detained practitioners themselves were the key factors to the success of breaking these arrangements. Our sending forth righteous thoughts were only to create some good opportunities for them and could not play the key role. Later, when I read some practitioners' experiences that were posted on the Internet, I realized that my old understanding was wrong.
Teacher won't accept the arrangements made by the old forces and wants us to completely deny all the arrangements made by them. Wasn't my old understanding wrong to give away my responsibility to those detained practitioners and to be unable to completely deny the arrangements made by the old forces? Other practitioners' work is also part of my work. How could I have such a wrong understanding, that the detained practitioners were playing the major role and I was playing the auxiliary role? All work we do is the work for Dafa.
Teacher taught us, "As long as you study, any problem can be solved. As long as you cultivate and as long as you're able to understand the Fa from the Fa, there's nothing you can't achieve" ("Fa-Lecture at the Conference in Florida, U.S.A."). Teacher also taught us, "If you can commit your mind, no difficulties can stop you. I would say that there is not a problem" (Zhuan Falun). Teacher has revealed to us the mighty power of Dafa. Why did I still think that my sending forth righteous thoughts was not powerful enough to have a big impact? When I imagined that I could not do it well, then I would not be able to do it well. Consequently, I would not be able to truly help those detained practitioners to completely deny the persecution from the old forces and I limited the power of my own righteous thoughts. I realized that I did not have a correct understanding of the Fa, that I had somewhat accepted the idea that the old forces could persecute Dafa practitioners. Thus, I have to let go of this wrong thought. "However strong the righteous thoughts are, that's how great the power is" ("Also in a Few Words," Essentials for Further Advancement II). If all Dafa disciples are steadfastly determined in Dafa and send forth determined and indestructible righteous thoughts, firmly denying all the arrangements made by the old forces, more detained Dafa disciples will be able to step out of the evil's den.
