A Reminder in a Dream: It Turned Out I Was Always Standing in the Fa Boat
(Clearwisdom.net) About a year ago, I was busy with preparing Falun Dafa truth clarification materials every day. One night, I had a dream that I remembered very clearly, from the beginning to the end.
In the dream, I was bending down on the sidewalk to look at the cracks and saw teams of tiny black dots marching. These black dots were very small, and I wanted to see them more clearly. Immediately after that thought, the pinpoint sized black dots became larger. Then I thought a bit more. With my thoughts, these black dots became bigger still. When I tried to differentiate, I realized that it was not these black dots becoming bigger, but I myself was shrinking. At that time the black dots were about the size of peas. Then I thought it would be wonderful if I could get inside the dots. Just as my thought appeared, my whole body was instantly inside a black dot. Ah, it was correspondingly a vast cosmic space. I felt very happy and continue to fly forward.
Just at that time, I came across a black smoke that was getting thicker as I flew forward, but I continued. The further I flew forward the more I felt that there was a vicious force that wanted to dissolve me. The demons were roaring and frenziedly attacking my whole body. They tried everything possible to shake my perseverance and stop my forward advance. I ignored all this and firmly continued. I flew for a long period of time that felt like four to five hours. It was pitch dark. A tiny bit of hesitation flashed through my mind. I wondered how much longer I had to fly, and how much more frenzied the demons would become. Since I had only flown for four or five hours, so the retreat should not take long. If I turned around and flew back, there might still be enough time for me to make a detour.
My righteous thought burst out from the bottom of my heart. I firmly believed that I was going to be able to unflinchingly hold on to the end. No matter how evil the black smoke became, it could not do anything against me. In this way I felt no hesitation in my heart at all, so I threw out my chest, turned up my nose at the darkness and steadfastly stood my ground.
I flew forward for quite some time, but I did not know exactly how many hours. Though I had righteous thoughts, feelings of nearly desperate helplessness repeatedly came back to my mind. I overcame them one by one. I really did not know how much time had passed before I suddenly found that the darkness was fading.
I was very surprised to find out that I had always been on the deck of a very big boat, about 20 to 30 meters long. The outline of the boat radiated golden light. I realized that I was not flying myself, but the Fa boat had been carrying me forward. What I had done was only firmly stand on the Fa boat. The Fa boat continued to carry me forward. At the time the black smoke was disappearing and the vast universe was unfolding in front of me once again. The Fa boat carried me to break through the dense fog.
When I was standing at the stern and looking up at the stars in the sky, my heart suddenly sensed there was someone standing about three or four meters behind me to the right. He was dressed in a white robe. Suddenly I felt that person talk to me, and the sound reached my mind. I was surprised to find out that it was our great Master's most compassionate and solemn voice. He talked compassionately and earnestly about my cultivation for quite a long time. He told me much, but what a pity, I cannot remember.
At that time I saw the wonderful scenes transformed for me to see. The universe unfolded in front of me, and at a very remote area in the colossal firmament there was a bright and splendid world made of golden light like transparent material. Many Falun Dafa practitioners coming from different universes and different sources gathered there. In my heart it seemed that I already knew something very important, very critical, very solemn would happen. It would be something that had never happened in the history of the universe since the creation of heaven and earth. It was important and magnificent, even in the process of Fa rectification (but it was not the final ascending to heaven to return to our positions). The Falun Dafa practitioners gathered there all had great missions and responsibilities, and needed to make every effort to fulfill them. At the same time, I realized that going across the blackness was a test of my will, and it was for the purpose of the final involvement and perfection of this great event. The previous experience meant that I had to exert my effort to reach the event. All this was very serious and was for the future of the whole universe. It was also very critical and carried a grave responsibility.
When I woke up from the dream I was surprised that everything in the dream had been so real. I was so eager to tell my fellow practitioners about the scenes in the dream so as not to forget anything. It seemed to me that my dream lasted for many hours, but my fellow practitioners said I had only lain down for five minutes.
