Persist in Fa-Study With a Calm Mind; Send Forth Powerful, Pure Righteous Thoughts at This Critical Time
(Clearwisdom.net) Because of the evil's fanatic interference, I often could not concentrate when sending forth righteous thoughts and I often had some impure or strange thoughts. Sometimes I was even affected by the demon of sleepiness, and my body would lean over and my mind was unclear. Teacher clearly pointed out in the article, "Righteous Thoughts," "At present, there are still some students who haven't really grasped the essentials of sending righteous thoughts. Some students are in the exact same state as when they do the meditation--even when they're just doing the meditation, some students are in a half-asleep state, are in a state in which their minds aren't alert enough, or are in a state in which they're severely interfered with by stray thoughts--so they can't achieve a very good effect."
Currently, Fa rectification has reached a critical point. Teacher again pointed out the importance and gave us specific instructions how to send forth righteous thoughts in "Righteous Thoughts." As Fa-rectification disciples, how can we keep up with the Fa rectification process? My understanding is to follow Teacher's requirements. Then, how can I change my above-mentioned poor state, eliminate the evil's interference and assist Teacher to rectify the Fa with firm, pure and powerful righteous thoughts?
In "Fa-Lecture at the Conference in Florida, U.S.A.," Teacher said, "...being able to do all these things well is inseparable from each of us, from each Dafa disciple's own cultivation and improvement. And that's why no matter how you've been persecuted, in difficult situations you've still been able to persevere in cultivating, persevere in studying the Fa, and keep a clear head. When a cultivator's mind departs from the Fa, the evil will find its way in. Seen with the human eye, people and everything else in the human world are three-dimensional. But in reality, all matter in humankind's entire dimension--be it flowers, grass, trees, human beings, the air, etc.--everything is made up of particles of that size (molecules). And in this layer of particles, everything, including the human body, is connected. When a person himself doesn't have righteous thoughts, all the bad things in the cosmos, or in the Three Realms, will flow around continually in the human body, and even when they stay there the person doesn't realize it. That's how people are manipulated; in other words, they manipulate people when these particles are able to connect with each other. So during the two years of persecution that you've been through, you have been able to persevere in your cultivation, make yourselves more and more clearheaded, and recognize ever more clearly the evilness of this persecution. So in other words, Fa-study truly is extremely important for a Dafa disciple, for a cultivator. No matter how difficult your environment is, no matter how busy you get, you cannot forget to study the Fa. You must study the Fa, because it is the absolute, most fundamental guarantee of your improvement."
I began studying the Fa more diligently. Other than reading Zhuan Falun daily with a calmer mind, I used all my time, including when I walked, drove, waited and before going to bed to recite the Fa. Sometimes I recited Hong Yin [the collection of Teacher's poems], sometimes Lunyu [preface of Zhuan Falun], and sometimes I recited recent articles Teacher published. I recited them repeatedly to blend into the Fa. Now when I send forth righteous thoughts, the evil is no longer able to interfere with me. I try my best to send forth righteous thoughts at the top of every hour; I no longer have impure thoughts, tiredness or exhaustion. When I send forth righteous thoughts, I feel the determined and pure righteous thoughts shoot toward the universe and cosmos with powerful gong to eliminate all evil within the cosmos. Although everything on the surface is as usual, tremendous changes are taking place in other dimensions. Once, when I sent forth righteous thoughts, I suddenly saw the head evil. The word "Mie" quickly became boundlessly powerful, and the head evil shrank and eventually disappeared. [This is the last word in one of the formulas, and means "cleaned out," "eliminated," "purged," etc. It is pronounced "Myeh"]
