Fully Utilizing the Power of Righteous Thoughts as a Whole Body at this Critical Time
(Clearwisdom.net) The time for the head of China's visit to Chicago, Houston and Crawford is approaching. Practitioners around the world have been discussing how to grasp the opportunity to purge all the evil elements. After learning lessons from our experience in Germany, Iceland and the Hong Kong incident, we now all have a clear understanding from the perspective of the Fa. Many practitioners abroad have been actively clarifying the truth and sending forth righteous thoughts for many days, and more practitioners are joining in.
Considering previous visits, some Dafa practitioners abroad have not completely looked at things from the perspective of the Fa, and therefore had some regrets, and truth clarification to local residents was not fully carried out either. While the head of the regime visiting abroad, many practitioners in Mainland China did not participate in sending forth righteous thoughts because they did not receive the news of his overseas visits in time.
How do we prevent the same problem from repeating itself? The following are some of my thoughts to share with everyone:
1. Strengthen Fa study and experience sharing; improve our comprehension
Prior to the visit, we should strengthen our Fa-study and make good use of time to clarify the truth and eliminate the evil field before his arrival. We should study the Fa full-heartedly, become more mature from within the Fa as soon as we can and discard all human notions and attachments through Fa-study and looking inward, so our righteous thoughts will become more and more powerful, and the evil will have no omission to take advantage of. All of our abilities and wisdom come from the Fa, therefore, we should never be interfered with by certain superficial phenomena and allow them to affect our daily Fa-study with a calm mind. We must guarantee quality Fa-study under any circumstances. At the same time, we should clearly realize that this is a great opportunity to speed up Fa-rectification.
2. Intensify righteous thoughts, beginning right now
During the process of continuously sending forth righteous thoughts, on the hour every hour, many practitioners have never experienced such highly intense elimination of the evil. During the critical moment when the righteousness is contesting the evil they encounter such experiences as ache in legs, tiredness, difficulty to concentrate and difficulty to keep a calm mind. This is partly due to interference from the evil. I believe it also shows deficiencies in practitioners' Fa-study and lack of their mental preparation.
Master said at "Fa-Lecture at the Conference in Florida, U.S.A," "Each student has to truly, clearly realize what his responsibility is, and when he sends forth righteous thoughts he has to be able to truly calm his mind and truly produce the effect of righteous thoughts. So this is something extremely critical, extremely important. Then, if every student is able to do that, I can tell you, with five minutes of sending forth righteous thoughts together, the evil in the Three Realms will never exist again."
Then, how can all Dafa practitioners around the world utilize their righteous thoughts to the fullest extent at this critical time?
"In the past it wasn't called "sending forth righteous thoughts," it was "divine powers," using divine powers, Buddha Fa's divine powers. Everyday people have referred to it as "supernormal abilities." ("Fa-Lecture at the Conference in Florida, U.S.A.") Regarding this, Master said when talking about martial arts qigong, "...It is not easy to regulate qi at the beginning. Though one may want to regulate qi, one might not be able to do so," "Nevertheless, the ability to regulate qi alone is not good enough, for in an actual combat the opponent will not wait for you," "qi is the most primitive thing and can be transformed into a high-energy matter as one continues to practice," "Because this high-energy matter exists in another dimension and does not travel in our dimension, its time travels faster than ours. When you punch someone, you do not need to direct qi or think about it, as the gong will be there already. When you try to ward off someone's attack, the gong will also be there already. No matter how quickly you throw a punch, it will travel faster than you do as the time concepts are different on the two sides." (Zhuan Falun)
My experience is that sending forth righteous thoughts also requires long-term self- discipline. It is actually a training of using supernatural capabilities. Through numerous times of sending forth righteous thoughts, we would gradually feel the righteous state we are supposed to be in when sending forth righteous thoughts, so that we can quickly attain such state of tranquility and skillfully use our supernatural capabilities. We will become more confident in the power of our righteous thoughts and eventually be able to use supernatural capabilities at will, to the extent that we could move a mountain with our power and control the evil with one thought.
We suggest that practitioners who can do so increase the number of times of sending forth righteous thoughts from now on, or increase the duration of sending forth righteous thoughts from five minutes to fifteen minutes twice a day. Together, let us completely eliminate the evil material field abroad.
3. Reminding everyone so that all Dafa practitioners around the world who are able to do so will participate [in sending forth righteous thoughts]
4. Overseas Dafa practitioners should do well in Fa promotion and truth clarification in their local areas ahead of time
Everything and every opportunity during Fa-rectification is no coincidence. They do not occur in isolation, either, as Master Li tells us. Master is using the old forces' arrangements so that we could have opportunities to create a future and to establish our mighty virtue. If we fail to do well at one time, then the experience would serve as a process of learning and improving, and we would still have a next chance. We should not become too attached to things at the superficial level. The most important thing is that all practitioners around the world would have a clear understanding on the critical issue of eliminating the head evil and "each student has to truly, clearly realize what his responsibility is, and when he sends forth righteous thoughts he has to be able to truly calm his mind and truly produce the effect of righteous thoughts." Like Master said, "every student is able to do that." ("Fa-Lecture at the Conference in Florida, U.S.A.") We "attain without pursuit," so if we realize something that needs to be done we will do it well and the result will naturally be good.
Moreover, we should not use ordinary people's "logical thinking" to surmise what would happen next, for it could lead to unnecessary attachment of zealotry to issues. The key point is that every one of us should strictly do well and look at things from the perspective of the Fa.
Of course, what I have talked about is based on the situation in the U.S. As for other parts of the world, especially in Mainland China, Hong Kong, Europe etc. there are also many things that need to be done and can be done well. The evil has reached its last step when its strength falls far short of its wishes, and only by speeding up the elimination of the evil are we able to save more sentient beings. Every day is precious. Every Dafa practitioner's truth clarification and sending forth righteous thoughts has boundless power.
The above is only my personal understanding. Please point out any inappropriateness.
