Master Does Not Acknowledge the Old Forces' Arrangements, Dafa Disciples Must Not Accept them Either
(Clearwisdom.net) In the lecture, "Teaching the Fa at the 2004 Chicago Conference" Master said:
"We negate even the very emergence of the old forces and everything that they've arranged; we don't even acknowledge their existence."
Due to a recent incident that happened around me, I was able to gain a deeper understanding of the above Fa-principle.
On the afternoon of October 16, 2004, at around 4 o'clock, while I was preparing meals at home, the director from my area's Residential Committee Office visited me and told me that the 610 Office chief was going to come to visit me the next day to inquire about my current living conditions. He urged me to wait for him at my home.
Recently, there have been several illegal abductions of Falun Dafa practitioners in our neighborhood. Since the Residential Committee officials had come to meet with me, I took the opportunity to clarify the truth. The Residents' Committee secretary was aware of the truth, but the director was not. All the while, I sent forth righteous thoughts to eliminate the evil beings affecting them. I told him that other practitioners in our area had been abducted by the "610" chief like this. I told him that this kind of person is not welcome in my home, and I would not open my door for him, since we didn't have any personal relationship. The director told me that the chief's visit was only about my welfare, not to arrest me, and that nothing should happen as long as I watched my tongue while speaking.
During group Fa study that night, I shared the day's incident with other practitioners. Another practitioner also recalled that the area Residents' Committee secretary and director also visited her residence and also informed her to wait for the 610 Office chief's visit out of concern for her "welfare." So I contacted and informed all the practitioners that I could come into contact with to specifically strengthen their sending forth righteous thoughts that night, to eliminate the dark minions and rotten demons in other dimension that were responsible for controlling the evil people that harm Dafa disciples. I urged them to completely deny the old forces' arrangements with continuous, intensive, and frequent sending forth of righteous thoughts the next day. Since Master is overseeing the Fa-rectification process, and with the righteous gods assisting, as long as we walk a righteous path, we can deny the old forces' arrangements.
At that time, a practitioner asked whether we should wait at home for the 610 Office chief the next day or whether we should not be there when he arrived. Some practitioners said that we shouldn't comply and that we should leave. My initial thought was that the question of whether to stay at home or not was only an external form, and the essence of the matter was to look within and examine our actions as we considered the idea of refusing to cooperate with the evil peoples' requests, by totally denying and refusing to walk the path arranged by the old forces. We realized that the purpose of resisting the evil's persecution is to safeguard the Fa. The fundamental standpoint for understanding the situation is to validate the Fa. As long as the fundamental understanding is correct, then no matter how the practitioners dealt with the problem, they would be within the Fa. The practitioner agreed that she should not wait at home for the "610" chief, but instead she should go out to clarify the truth.
That same day, I decided to stay at home -- not because I wanted to wait for the 610 Office chief to arrive, but to remain calm and tranquil without any attachment of fear. I send forth the strongest righteous thoughts to disallow the evil person to enter Dafa disciples' homes. At 10 p.m. that evening, I started to peacefully cleanse myself, I positioned my whole being inside the Fa, from my very origin, and I began to send forth the strongest righteous thoughts: "I am Master's disciple, what I am doing is the most righteous deed in the universe, and no one should move me. My presence here is for validating the Fa, not for the evil to persecute and not for conducting any so-called 'test.'"
In "Teaching the Fa at the Great Lakes Fa Conference in North America," Master said:
"Their warped notions have made them think that the persecution of Gods in history was rightful. Incidents such as Jesus being nailed to the cross have become the precedent for high-level beings who come down to save people. How could this be acceptable? This itself is degenerate! A God comes down to save people, yet humans nail him to a cross -- what a huge sin people have committed! They are still paying for it today."
Master does not acknowledge the old forces' arrangements, and Dafa disciples also must not accept this arrangement. I studied the Fa and continued to send forth righteous thoughts. The next morning, after getting up at 6 a.m., I continued to send forth righteous thoughts. During the 4 hours from 6 to 10 a.m., I continued to study the Fa and send forth righteous thoughts. When it was almost 10 a.m., I realized that I had developed an un-noticeable desire of wanting to wait further. If this was viewed from another dimension, wouldn't this amount to accepting the arrangement from the old forces? Our every thought and action must be immersed in the Fa. With these thoughts I left my house immediately to join the group's effort of intensively sending forth righteous thoughts.
As the time moved past 11 a.m., we continued to deny totally the old forces' arrangements. A practitioner joining us said that she left her house early in the morning to distribute truth clarification materials. At around 11 a.m. when she was on her way home, her husband informed her that the Residential Committee's Office phoned and informed him that the 610 Office's chief would not be showing up because of other matters. All the Dafa disciples present at the location smiled understandingly at this news.
From this incident, we were able to realize that when Dafa disciples formed an indestructible unified body, the effect it had on the elimination of the evil in other dimensions was the most effective of all. By putting our faith in Master, by strengthening and affirming our belief in the principles of the universe, the righteous energy emanating from this along with our strong righteous thoughts can disintegrate all of the evil factors. Only when we truly immerse our thoughts in the Fa in a pure and sincere way without any human attachments, and use our hearts to deny and eliminate this vicious evil persecution, only then will the mighty power of the Fa unfold.
