(Clearwisdom.net) Recently I have seen in other dimensions many deities interfering with Falun Dafa practitioners. The majority of the interfering deities have fruit status, some with halos on their heads and others standing on lotuses. They have persecuted practitioners in various places in China.

The interfering deities have a common understanding that the persecution helps Falun Dafa practitioners cultivate. Some have brought troubles to practitioners' physical bodies. That is why some practitioners have illness karma, and a few practitioners have even passed away. Other interfering deities manipulate evil people or policemen to persecute practitioners. They are jealous of practitioners and are exploiting some practitioners' poor understandings of the Fa. In the name of "helping Dafa practitioners to improve," these deities interfere with Fa-rectification and persecute practitioners. Some practitioners, although their celestial eyes were open, were deceived and led astray by the interfering deities due to these practitioners' poor understandings of the Fa. The persecution intensified in some areas as a result.

Once while sending forth righteous thoughts, I was eliminating the evil with several fellow practitioners. We fought three interfering deities. They looked down upon us though. We became bigger, but they became bigger, too. We asked Master for help, then they became nervous and tried to hide. Master gave us a Falun to sit on, and our divine powers became greatly magnified. However, those deities were able to get away due to our poor cultivation status or poor understanding of the Fa.

I would like to share a few points with fellow practitioners:

1. Those with their celestial eye open must study the Fa carefully every day, making sure not to rely on their own abilities or visions.

"Whether it is a Buddha, a Tao, an immortal, or a demon, they should not move your heart. In conducting oneself this way, success is bound to be in sight." (Zhuan Falun)

When we cannot distinguish bad deities from good ones, we should ask Master for help, and bad deities will be driven away.

2. We must be very clear about the relationship between personal cultivation and Fa-rectification. Be serious about sending forth righteous thoughts and fulfilling our vows.

3. Healthy physical bodies of Falun Dafa practitioners also validate the Fa. Illness karma is interference from the evil to keep us from doing the three things. When this karma comes, we should look within and eliminate our shortcomings and eliminate the interference by sending forth righteous thoughts.

"...completely let go of everything, behave like an upstanding and noble Dafa disciple who has no resentment or attachments, and leave it to Master to arrange whether you stay or go. When you are able to do that, you are a god." ("Teaching the Fa in the City of Los Angeles")

The above is my understanding at my level. Please point out anything inappropriate.
