Only Diligent Cultivation Can Negate All Old Force Arrangements
(Clearwisdom.net) The old forces have arranged a set of their own objectives for all Dafa practitioners. If we do not follow Master's requests then we follow the arrangements of the old forces. Only those who follow Master's requests are truly rectifying the Fa, are truly cultivating themselves and are true Dafa practitioners.
At present, certain practitioners are still interfered with by some false appearances of sickness and are still not diligent in doing the three things requested by Master. They cannot understand the true nature of the sickness and cannot negate all the arrangements set by the old forces in history. I wrote this article regarding my daughter's situation. I hope everyone can view this as a precaution and improve together.
My daughter little Jinglian (alias) has had all kinds of illnesses since childhood. We were in utter despair after many years of seeking medical attention. She was seven years old when she obtained Dafa in 1996. She was very diligent in studying the Fa and doing the exercises. Her illnesses gradually disappeared and she became a healthy child. We were all delighted.
After the persecution began, we lost our group Fa study and exercise environment. Little Jinglian gradually indulged in playing, hopelessly lost in watching TV all day long. She did not study the Fa or do the exercise and eventually gave up cultivation. Her illnesses returned. She began cultivation again after family persuasion, but would only read Zhuan Falun and listen to Master's lectures. She would not read any new articles, send forth righteous thoughts or participate in truth clarification.
In November 2004, the old forces persecuted her relentlessly during her karma elimination. She lay prone on the ground, could not climb up to her bed and was severely short of breath. She could not eat or drink. She could not raise her head. She could only support her body with her arms while listening to Master's lectures.
Looking at her suffering like this, I started to blame her for not being diligent. She replied with her head bowed down, "Why should I suffer so much since childhood? Do I have that much karma? I am so miserable, I cannot breathe. Mother, I don't want my body anymore."
I answered, "It is wrong to think that way. Dafa practitioners all have missions. Master has done so much for you, how can you let him down by talking like this." She realized she was wrong and started to cry.
Around noon, her shortness of breath had worsened; she became delirious and also had a fever. We began sending forth righteous thoughts towards her. She said, "They have all come (old forces), a whole bunch of people here want to take me away. I told them I will not go with them. I am a Dafa practitioner. I have Master."
They replied, "It's all arranged, today is the day," and put a black ball into her throat, all of a sudden she felt suffocated and could not breathe at all. She used all her strength and shouted, "Eliminate! Eliminate! Eliminate!" She turned around looked at the tape recorder with Master's teaching. They said, "There is no use; you are going to go while listening to the recording." "I won't go; I don't acknowledge your arrangement." They took out countless long shiny needles, piercing her every cell. She was dripping wet with pain and could almost not handle it anymore. After they heard the news, several fellow practitioners came over and sent forth righteous thoughts. We brought out Master's picture and asked for Master's support. Her symptoms alleviated some and we put her to bed.
It was near dinnertime, and our fellow practitioners had gone home. I thought I could relax a little. Suddenly, Jinglian said, "Here they come again."
There were two males in the front and two females followed. They all carried swords.
They told Jinglian, "Come down to the ground, you will be better when you come down, you will no longer suffer." I hurried in, "Don't listen to them, they are deceiving you." The evil saw that Jinglian refused to listen to them and changed their tone, "Close your eyes and sleep; you have not had any sleep for two days, sleep." Jinglian became so sleepy that she could not open her eyes and had a severe headache. I was sending righteous thoughts and in the meantime patting her face so as not to let her fall asleep. Little Jinglian was crying: "I beg you mother, let me sleep, I cannot handle any more." "No, you cannot sleep, the evil is deceiving you."
I knelt in front of Master's picture, crying, "I do not remember what oath I made in the universe, but my daughter and I are making a new oath: we do not acknowledge the arrangements made by the old forces, we do not want to bring any loss to Dafa. We did not do well today, but we will do the "three things" well from now on."
My daughter replied while crying, "Master, I was wrong." She felt much smoother in her breathing and more clear-headed.
They came again. This time they were much larger. Jinglian thought, "My body should be larger also." As soon as the thought came, hundreds of meridians in her body widened immediately like rivers. Her body was enormous. A Western Goddess appeared standing on the law wheel and holding a whip. She whipped the old forces down to hell, and used her sword to pierce, chain and melt them.
The one who appeared to be the leader said, "You agreed in the past and won't stand to your word now, hitting us. Tell us a hundred mistakes you have made, then we will go." Jinglian said, "I do not acknowledge you, I am a Dafa practitioner, I listen to my Master. Even if I have made mistakes, it is none of your business." With Master's compassionate support, the evil was completely eliminated.
The event that happened to my daughter was like a heavy hammer waking me up. Because I was not so diligent, I let the old forces take advantage of us. We did not truly understand the three things on the basis of the Fa, only occasionally clarified the truth, did not send out truth-clarification materials and did not treat cultivation seriously. Everything became a mere task, a situation that allowed the old forces to take advantage of us.
I understand that negating the arrangements set by the old forces is not accomplished simply by the words we say, it requires us to do every specific thing according to the Fa, according to Master's request. That is true cultivation, truly negating the arrangements by the old forces.
Master clearly told us in his article, "Eliminate the Dark Minions with Righteous Thoughts":
"Stop letting the evil exploit gaps, and stop being interfered with by human attachments. Do well the things that Dafa disciples should do, and walk the last leg of the journey well. Righteous thoughts, righteous actions."
Master also taught us in, "My Version of a 'Stick Wake-up'":
"Master sees that danger is already approaching you. I don't acknowledge the old forces' arrangements, and that includes this persecution, but I knew that the old factors who would be impacted by Fa-rectification would do this, and that it was just a matter of time and of which ones."
My daughter replied, "Master's article, 'My Version of a "Stick Wake-up"' is trying to wake up practitioners like me." We can no longer ignore Master's compassion, and we can no longer waste this opportunity waited for over the ages, to carry out righteous thoughts and actions and return home with Master.
