(Clearwisdom.net) We usually regard that our every single thought, word, and action is from the mind and is produced by our main consciousness. Actually, this is not true. Those are acquired notions, and they are even arranged by the old forces. Master has already told us,

"Even each Dafa disciple's every move, every action, every word, and even the questions you ponder, none of it is that simple. In the future you'll see that everything was very carefully arranged. But it's not me who arranged this, it's the old forces who did." ("Fa-Lecture at the Conference in Florida, U.S.A.")

Master said,

"You yourself are a primordial self that is unchangeable. However, man is apt to form a notion when he tries to understand things, and this notion is not himself. If one does not form any notion, when viewing a problem, he would have an understanding out of his good nature, the real understanding of his own and deal with the problem with kindness. The more you yourself show your true self the loftier your thought is, the nearer you'll be to the truth, and the more you'll find yourself in the realm of your primordial good nature. The man's original nature has been formed when the human body is composed of the particles in an extremely, extremely micro state, so it is unchangeable. When one breaks his frame of thought, he will easily feel and perceive his good temperament, disposition, fundamental nature and character which have formed his real self."

"Once a notion is formed, it can govern a person's life, dominate his mind and even his happiness, anger, grief and joy. It is something acquired. With the passage of time, it will dissolve in one's mind, in the real brain of one's own, and form one's disposition." ("Buddha Nature" in Zhuan Falun (Volume II), (Provisional translation Both passages taken from the 1996 translation by Translation Group of Research Society of Falun Xiulian Dafa)

After one cultivates, one will have supernormal capabilities and have Buddha Law capabilities. When sending forth righteous thoughts to purify oneself, one does so by "...thinking about eliminating the bad thoughts, karma, bad notions, and external interference in their minds." ("Teaching the Fa at the 2001 Canada Fa Conference") These bad notions are not one's true-self, but are acquired notions.

Therefore, we can see that when we are eliminating the bad thoughts, karma, bad notions, and external interference in our minds as we send forth righteous thoughts, we are eliminating those acquired notions that are covering the main consciousness. They are not the true-self. They do not belong to our true-self, as they are things created from our acquired notions.

In other words, when the bad thoughts, karma, bad notions, and external interference come, it is actually this bad stuff that is manifesting, not the true-self. For example, when our attachments arise, when one's lust arises, these are actually the acquired notions in other dimensions and thought karma that have arisen, the demons of lust and sentimentality that have arisen. If we regard them as part of ourselves and believe, "I have this attachment, I have the desire of lust," would we be able to cleanse it during our sending forth righteous thoughts? It is like a man who put on dirty clothes, but always regarded that it was himself who was not clean, so he kept cleaning the clothes whenever they seemed dirty. However, regardless of how much one cleans them, the golden shining body is not revealed; the true-nature can only be be seen when one removes the clothes. That stuff, in fact, is not the true-self at all.

As said by a fellow practitioner in "Eliminate Demonic Nature (With Master's Comments) "

"My mind is now clear. It is not enough to recognize evil as evil and righteous as righteous. It is not enough to recognize that we are righteous and to separate ourselves from the evil. We must realize that evil should not exist, and we must do everything in our power to destroy the evil. When the thought karma comes, instead of simply tolerating it, knowing it not to be myself, waiting for Master to remove it as I did before, I now summon up every ounce of determination to destroy it with all of my heart, knowing it should no longer exist, and that it is a manifestation of my own demon nature to passively allow it to exist."

"As this determination rises, my mind becomes solid like a diamond, and I feel that a single move of my mind could break mountains in half." (http://www.clearwisdom.net/emh/articles/2000/10/6/6587.html)

Master is waiting for us to truly transform our acquired human notions, truly be clear about all the supernormal powers and capabilities that we now have, and to get the flesh body and our divine side to coordinate well and work together.
