(Clearwisdom.net) One night last winter, I was practicing the sitting meditation exercise until 11:30 p.m. I came out of the sitting position and tried to relax for a little while before sending forth righteous thoughts at midnight. I reminded myself not to fall asleep no matter what. However, I did fall asleep. When I woke up, it was already past 12:30 a.m. At the moment I woke up, I saw eight big black snakes in other dimensions. The snakes were about 10 cm thick and one meter long and they formed circles with their heads pointed inside, right toward my head when I was asleep. The size of the circles were exactly the size of my head. At the moment I woke up, they quickly turned away. When I started to send forth righteous thoughts, they immediately fled. The time had already passed for sending forth righteous thoughts, and I regretted it very much.

Recently, I talked about this incident with fellow practitioners and found out that many others had also missed the time for sending forth righteous thoughts at midnight due to sleep. I felt that I did not do well in fulfilling the responsibility our Teacher gave to us.

Fellow practitioners, especially those in Mainland China, please eliminate the mindset of seeking worldly comfort and no longer let the attachment to sleep interfere. Let us study the Fa more diligently, strengthen our righteous thoughts, and do not allow the evil to take advantage of our omissions. Let us make sure to do well in sending forth righteous thoughts, which is one of the three things that Teacher asked us to do. If the situation allows, let us not miss the time when Falun Dafa practitioners all over the world are sending forth their righteous thoughts. Righteous thoughts and righteous actions will eliminate the evil, save sentient beings, and fulfill our responsibility to our Teacher.
