Believing in Teacher and the Fa Can Turn Bad Things into Good
(Clearwisdom.net) As the Fa-rectification proceeds, the evil in the other dimensions is fighting for its last hope. Because I didn't study the Fa well and didn't cultivate myself well, I was taken advantage of by the evil. I found I could turn bad things into good ones by denying the evil's arrangements, as long as I believed in Teacher and the Fa. I am writing down my story; please correct anything not in line with the Fa.
I spent a lot of my time clarifying the truth on the Internet and gained good results. Eventually, I developed a heart of zealotry and became attached to achievement. The time I studied the Fa was decreasing. My sending forth righteous thoughts was also less frequent, even for the four times each day that Dafa practitioners around the world send forth righteous thoughts together. However, I didn't look within but still continued to do what I had been doing. Thus, the evil exaggerated my attachment in order to destroy me. My younger sister, a university student, and her boyfriend were brainwashed by the Chinese Communist Party. They didn't understand why Dafa practitioners have been validating the Fa. My mother, also a practitioner, and I had clarified the truth to them many times, but my sister resisted and wouldn't listen. The evil took advantage of their bad attitude to do some damage. My sister's boyfriend was a computer expert and, unknown to me, he set a password on the computer that I used to access the Internet to prevent me from going to the Minghui website. They said that websites overseas contained viruses which could cause damage to the computer, and they also said, "Look at the computer, it works so slowly, and it's all because you have gone to websites overseas."
I didn't realize that this was caused by my attachments used by the evil. I didn't look within; rather, I argued with them. Not until later did I realized I had fallen into the evil's trap.
I tried to adjust my mindset: I am Teacher's disciple, my path is arranged by Teacher, not the evil. I then looked for my attachments and tried to get rid of them by sending forth strong righteous thoughts: disintegrate completely all the meddling deities in the three realms that have a hand in interfering with Fa-Rectification, and all their evil arrangements and evil elements.
Because of my steadfast belief in Teacher and the Fa, the situation started to change. The next morning, my sister went out to buy some desserts for me as an apology. My mind was calm instead of excited, not like how I had felt wile arguing with them. I only felt grateful to Teacher, it was Teacher who had helped me solve the trouble made by the evil and I witnessed the mighty power of belief in Teacher and the Fa.
Soon after, my sister and her boyfriend were going back to school, yet they didn't change my computer back to its original state. Some software that I downloaded from Qingxin Forum couldn't be installed on my computer, and the new articles by Teacher in my USB memory stick couldn't be displayed properly, either. My sister's boyfriend had changed the user's ID from my name to my sister's on my computer! My feelings of resentment flared up again. However, I realized this was wrong, then I was able to calm down: Teacher said that we should be compassionate to sentient beings, but I had such an unkind heart, no wonder the evil had been taking advantage of me. I must get rid of it immediately. When I was sending forth righteous thoughts to cleanse my mind, I said to myself: it's just a computer systems problem, let me re-install it and it should work correctly again. Thinking that it had been always been someone else installing things on the computer for me, because I wasn't good at computer technology, I could get rid of the habit of depending on others as well.
"Whatever you experience during your cultivation - whether good or bad - is good, for it comes about only because you are cultivating. A cultivator cannot achieve Consummation when laden with human thoughts, laden with karmic debts, or laden with attachments." (To the Chicago Fa Conference)
Thinking of Teacher's words, my mind was opened, and those bad thoughts and attachments disappeared. In order to get rid of the attachment of depending on others and laziness, I had to learn how to install computer systems. Thus, I taught myself with information I found on the Internet that evening, and re-installed my computer system the next day. With the support of Teacher, not only did I get rid of my attachments, but I also mastered useful computer skills.
