An Understanding of Sending Righteous Thoughts
August 20, 2002
(Clearwisdom.net) Although I understood that sending forth righteous thoughts to eliminate the evil is the great task Teacher gave the Dafa disciples in the Fa-rectification period, and I should do it the best I could, I often had loopholes because I couldn't look upon it from the standpoint of the Fa. For example, whenever I saw disciples in other areas being persecuted, I thought that the disciples in those areas would send forth righteous thoughts to eliminate the evil themselves; whenever I heard that the head of the evil was going to visit other countries, I thought that the many disciples overseas were going to eliminate it. Later on, I realized that Dafa disciples are one entity, that the persecution of the disciples in any particular area is the persecution of Dafa and all the disciples, and that I have the responsibility to send forth righteous thoughts to eliminate the evil there. Nevertheless, I still felt that I was just helping the disciples in those areas or countries, rather than realizing that it was related to my own field in some dimension too. As a result, sometimes I failed to go all out in sending forth righteous thoughts, and even neglected the matter with various excuses.
One day, when I was reading the section, "The Supernormal ability of Clairvoyance" in Zhuan Falun, I suddenly gained further understanding in the matter. Teacher instructed us there:
"Within a specific dimension, the human body has a field which is different from the field of de. They are not in the same dimension, but are the same size. This field corresponds to the universe. Whatever exists in the universe out there is correspondingly reflected here. Everything can be reflected."
Teacher also said in "Demonic interference from One's Own Mind" in Zhuan Falun:
"A human body has a physical field in every level's dimension. Within a special field, everything in the universe can be reflected into your dimensional field, like a shadow. Although they are shadows, they are of material existence."
Think about it, if anything in the cosmos has a correspondence in our own fields, it will also be reflected to our own fields no matter where and what the evil is doing to persecute the Fa and Dafa disciples; therefore, we are also clearing out our own fields when we are eliminating the evil in all other areas or counties. My obstacle was thus broken by Teacher's Fa and, meanwhile, I saw my selfishness hidden behind the obstacle. This enabled me to understand how devious the old forces have been. They will find any possible loophole in our minds, even if just one of our thoughts is not on the level we should be at. Therefore, every Dafa disciple should give due importance to sending forth righteous thoughts, because it is not only the duty of the disciples in a particular area or country, but also the responsibility of every Dafa disciple in the world.
Teacher instructed us in "Teaching the Fa at the Washington, D.C. Fa Conference":
"Everyone needs to recognize the importance of sending righteous thoughts. That's because you are Dafa disciples, and you aren't everyday people doing things for Dafa, but Dafa disciples who are validating the Fa."
I suggest that every Dafa disciple should think over the meaning of this statement more deeply.
