The Gate that the Heavens Built [Tiananmen] -- A "Sending Forth Righteous Thoughts" Experience
(Clearwisdom.net) Once, while sending forth righteous thoughts to eliminate the evil at one level after another, suddenly I arrived at "Tiananmen" in Heaven, which was a heavenly gate. If one entered the gate, one would be back in the heavenly paradise, and Master was waiting for us there. The place was extremely clean and pure, like white jade. I thought, "Isn't there any evil to eliminate here in Tiananmen?" As soon as this thought occurred, all of a sudden, the area around me turned into a ghastly and gloomy place, like hell. Instantly, I understood what it was. The dark place was the Tiananmen arranged by the evil forces, gloomy and full of demons. Then the scene changed quickly again, like changing an act on a stage. Still in the same place, Tiananmen changed back into the incomparably pure heavenly gate, bright and clean.
I understood that Master's arrangement for Dafa disciples to go to Tiananmen, the gate that the Heavens built, is a pass that enables us to advance towards Consummation. The path Master has arranged for us is sacred and beautiful. However, the arrangements of the evil forces have imposed tribulations upon Dafa disciples. As a result, Dafa disciples suffered severe persecution. If we in our minds hold the thought that by going to Tiananmen we will be persecuted, then that would be as bad as recognizing the arrangements of the evil forces, and we would end up with going to a Tiananmen that is filled with evil. In fact, the evil, false Tiananmen is only a decayed set on a stage, allowing evil beings to perform filthy plays. If we can see clearly the cultivation path Master has arranged for us, then we will be able recognize the filthy plays arranged by the old forces, and we will be able to cultivate and participate in Fa-rectification in an open and dignified manner.
Master said, "Indestructible righteous faith in the cosmos' Truth forms benevolent Dafa disciples' rock-solid, diamond-like bodies; it frightens all evil, and the light of Truth it emanates makes the unrighteous elements in all beings' thoughts disintegrate. However strong the righteous thoughts are, that's how great the power is. Dafa disciples are truly stepping forward out of ordinary humanness." The dirty plays of the evil forces are completely shameful and scandalous. They cannot withstand exposure and will soon fall apart in the face of the firm righteous thoughts of Dafa disciples.
The above is my personal understanding. Please point out anything improper.
