Deepening My Understanding of Sending Forth Righteous Thoughts
(Clearwisdom.net) During the course of Fa-rectification, the evil factors in other dimensions have largely been eliminated, and the wicked people are not as vicious as they used to be. On the other hand, why is the evil still severely persecuting practitioners at sites for producing truth clarification materials?
Through studying the Fa, I have come to understand that the persecution is due to the old forces using practitioners' human attachments. Practitioners facing persecution have long-held attachments that are not consistent with the standard of Dafa. Moreover, the damage done by external factors also needs to be considered.
"Let me tell you, all those who remain and that can persecute Dafa and Dafa disciples are due to our students themselves. Students who haven't taken sending forth righteous thoughts seriously: the evil in the dimensions that you are supposed to shoulder and be responsible for has not been eliminated. That's the cause. So you must take sending forth righteous thoughts seriously. No matter whether you think you have the ability or not, you should do it. 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.)
I feel that the evil mainly comes from the dimensions of the practitioners who either don't pay attention to sending forth righteous thoughts or don't send forth righteous thoughts.
Master's Fa has enlightened me and deepened my understanding of sending forth righteous thoughts. I have also understood why I do not send forth righteous thoughts very often. The main reason is that I do not study the Fa very often. As a result, I am not able to merge well with the Fa, neither are the beings in my dimensions. The beings that have not melted in the Fa were created in the old universe. Because they do things according to the principles of the old universe, they contribute to my poor attention during Fa study and my lack of focus when sending forth righteous thoughts. They disturb not only me, but also other practitioners. If every practitioner plays his part well in eliminating the vicious elements, then the arrangements of the old forces will be eliminated.
Some practitioners who don't send forth righteous thoughts might think that the practitioners who do send forth righteous thoughts will eliminate the evil in their dimensions for them. I think this is not possible, as Master gives the opportunity to each disciple to build mighty virtue. Others cannot cultivate for you. The structure of the universe is quite complicated, not to mention the factors arranged by the old forces that have come into the three realms and cause damage. Thus, the dimensions of those practitioners who do not send forth righteous thoughts have become convenient places for the evil to hide. In order to eliminate the persecution, every practitioner who cultivates must do the three things well every day: sending forth righteous thoughts, studying the Fa, and clarifying the truth.
The above is my personal understanding. Please point out any mistakes..
