My Realizations from the Rescue Effort for Charles Li
After reading the article on the urgent rescue of U.S. citizen Charles Li from last week's Minghui Weekly (weekly downloadable publication from Minghui, the Chinese version of Clearwisdom), I did not realize that it was related to me. I thought that the U.S. practitioners were taking care of it. It seemed that it had nothing to do with me and I did not recognize from a higher level that this matter is related to the entire body of practitioners. This was because I did not study the Fa well.
After reading the article from a practitioner on rescuing Charles Li, I was shaken. When sending forth righteous thoughts, the practitioner saw the old forces' clamor. I believe it was because we did not coordinate well, did not do well, and it was a manifestation of imperfection. Being Dafa practitioners, we should not be indifferent; we need to melt within Fa and truly act as Dafa particles. Master Li said, "The next person's things are your things,1 and your things are his things." ("Teaching the Fa at the Washington, D.C. Fa Conference")
A practitioner in China wrote in an article on rescuing Charles Li: "Especially for the Dafa practitioners who are close, sending forth righteous thoughts collectively has even greater power. At the same time, we Mainland practitioners also need to be involved because it is very likely that the evil from our own dimensions are joining the persecution." When I read this part, I was shaken. I felt that I should also write down what I have realized. Rescuing Charles Li is what we must do now. It is part of the battle with the evil in the other dimensions.
Master Li said, "What you eliminate from your own mind are ones which have an effect within the expanse of your own body; at the same time, you need to eliminate the external ones, which are directly related to the dimensions you're in. If you don't eliminate them, then they not only persecute you and restrain you, but also persecute other students, other Dafa disciples." ("Fa-Lecture at the Conference in Florida, U.S.A.").
From Master Li's lecture, I thought of this: We need to eliminate evil from all the prisons, detention centers, drug rehabilitation centers, mental hospitals, brainwashing classes and all the dimensions of the people who have "enlightened" along evil paths; otherwise they will also come out and persecute other practitioners. On the day after the Chinese New Year, I thought that I should help them to eliminate the evil in their dimensions. When it was time for collectively sending forth righteous thoughts in the morning, I said to myself: Master Li has unlocked our supernormal abilities. I have the ability. The universe and the cosmos are all under me. When I erected my palm, I saw an image that looked like a school for people who "enlightened" along evil paths. I continuously sent forth righteous thoughts and immediately the school was eliminated by my immense gong.
When it was time to send forth righteous thoughts at 6 am on the 17th, I again helped them to send forth righteous thoughts to eliminate evil in that dimension. When I just sent out my thoughts, I saw an image: the sky was turning dark and I saw two buildings with a narrow passage between them. There were many dark souls trying everything they could to squeeze out. My understanding was that those who have "enlightened" along evil paths did not do well and the beings in their dimensions were about to be eliminated. I helped them to send righteous thoughts in their dimensions and that was the only hope they had; therefore many sentient beings who wanted to be saved all wanted to run away from the dimensions of the people who had "enlightened" along the evil path.
Through sending forth righteous thoughts this time, I deeply realized that Dafa practitioners' righteous thoughts have great mighty power. During this special period, Dafa practitioners must take this seriously and firmly believe in the mighty power of our righteous thoughts. Master Li said, "While emerging from the hardship, while saving the people of the world, and while becoming more clearheaded and mature, you have come through another year. 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")
Rescuing U.S. citizen Charles Li is our responsibility as one whole body. It
is also every individual Fa-rectification practitioner's responsibility. We need
to firmly eliminate the evil. Seen from the Fa-rectification process, it is
critically important at this moment to rescue Charles Li because the evil beings
are coming against Dafa. As long as our cultivation is not finished during the
Fa-rectification process, we need to manifest our mighty righteous thoughts and
form an indestructible, harmonious whole body with a resplendent righteous field
and no omissions, reaching all the way to the complete elimination of the evil.
