In the Crucial Historic Moment, It Becomes Even More Important to Keep Our Minds Undisturbed
(Clearwisdom.net) As soon as the New Year began, Teacher told us, "On the rest of the journey, may you fulfill, with godlike righteous thoughts and righteous actions, the grand vows you made before history!"("New Year's Greetings from Master") This indicates that Teacher has raised the requirement for us to a higher standard. More and more people have come to know the truth of Falun Dafa. More and more evil persons have suffered retribution. At this crucial moment, we must seriously think about how to keep our minds undisturbed by any outside factors, and how to utilize our wisdom and capabilities perfectly to assist Teacher in rectifying the Fa.
In my own experience, I have recently seen all kinds of false images in my celestial eye: some tried to praise me, others tried to make me feel shameful, some tried to teach me, etc. This and all sorts of other interference were firmly eliminated with righteous thoughts.
Cultivating with my celestial eye open, I sometimes know things ahead of time, or can see things more clearly. With this, I've developed some "attachment of zealotry." Also, some practitioners often praise me, so at times, I create obstacles in my own cultivation. Teacher has said, "Supernormal abilities are only small tricks, Dafa is the most fundamental."(Hong Yin) "So he saw something at a certain level and the way things are at that level, and got complacent when he saw things clearly. Those are things at really shallow levels--be sure to remember this." (Explaining the Content of Falun Dafa) In addition, what Teacher has openly taught is instructional to all Falun Dafa practitioners, every one of us included. Here I would like to recall some important words from Teacher when He spoke at the Fa Conference in Philadelphia. I hope it can benefit many practitioners:
"I've said before that the evil won't stop persecuting even right up until the very end. Even if it's going to end tomorrow, today that evil will still do evil just the same."
"As I've said, everything that happens today in the ordinary society is the result of Dafa disciples' thoughts. Even though the old forces do exist, if you don't have those thoughts they can't do anything. When your righteous thoughts are strong enough the old forces can't do a thing."
"You're cultivators, and all changes come from your cultivation and the Fa-rectification; everything that you yourselves validate and enlighten to, and everything that you'll receive, all this comes from what you have done on your path. Absolutely don't think about any favors the old forces might do for us, or about how the ordinary society might help us. You are the ones saving the ordinary people's society, and you are the ones saving sentient beings!"("Teaching the Fa at the 2002 Fa Conference in Philadelphia, U.S.A.")
Let us make every last step well on our paths of Fa-rectification with stronger and purer righteous thoughts and righteous actions.
