Breaking Through Human Notions
(Clearwisdom.net) I recently read a practitioner's article on the Clearwisdom websiste and agree with the author. As Dafa practitioners, our every single thought is critical. There is a big difference between human notions and righteous thoughts. And the results may be totally different.
When you have righteous thoughts, the rules of everyday society may not apply to you. For example, recently I was bitten by an insect, and the pain traveled upward along the middle finger. Just before being bitten, I watched a truth-clarification video and so I thought, "I am a practitioner composed of high-energy matter. That insect is within the Three Realms. How can it affect me?" With that thought, the pain stopped. The next day, it was as if nothing had happened.
When you have human notions, you are an everyday person, someone within the Three Realms. Therefore, you will be restricted by the principles within the Three Realms. Recently, several elderly practitioners in this area experienced physical discomfort. Some said they had heart disease, peripheral inflammation of the shoulder-joint, or ossein proliferation. Trapped in human notions, these practitioners are having a difficult time. They have been studying the Fa, doing the exercises, sending forth righteous thoughts, and clarifying the truth. So, why they still have such issues?
My understanding is that Fa-rectification is nearing completion and it is moving forward rapidly. This means higher requirements for us. Our saving sentient beings is divine; how can we do it with so many human notions? Some practitioners may still have strong human thoughts; let's have more sharing with them so that we can all be diligent. Let's oppose the old forces' arrangements in our thoughts and actions. Let's eliminate human notions and, through cultivation, become genuine enlightened beings.
The above is my personal understanding. Please point out anything inappropriate.
