We Should Not Transfer Our Tribulations Over to Teacher
(Clearwisdom.net) Many practitioners have written about how they appeal to Teacher for help dissolving their tribulations when they are enduring torture. Since they recognized that they were Falun Dafa practitioners, Teacher did help out. As such, the persecution stopped. Afterwards, the practitioner would say with many thanks how grateful they were that Teacher had endured the pain for them.
I found this understanding very limited. Teacher has made it very clear that when evil is persecuting us, we should eradicate it with righteous thoughts and transfer the pain inflicted by the evil over to the evildoers. Teacher said, "...as long as that wicked person keeps being violent, keep sending righteous thoughts."("Stop the Evil Acts with Righteous Thoughts") In other words, let retribution happen to the evildoers. However, our fellow practitioners instead transfer the pain to Teacher for no reason.
Teacher is merciful and protective of practitioners. But we should become more mature. We should not, because of our incorrect thoughts, let the evil take advantage of our loopholes, thereby pushing the persecution over to our Teacher.
We have cultivated for so long, however our supernormal capabilities are not shown in this dimension. Even new practitioners have cultivated great supernormal capabilities by following our Teacher. We should not have this thought of letting Teacher suffer for us. In fact, practitioners are able to not only protect ourselves, but also save countless sentient beings.
Teacher has taught us on numerous occasions about the greatness and power of Falun Dafa practitioners. We must all have supernormal capabilities and be able to accomplish the tasks bestowed on us.
"I am teaching them something from college, and they always ask me about an elementary school pupil's things, such as how to guide and use mind activities. They are already accustomed to that approach. They think that qigong is like that when, in fact, it is not." (Zhuan Falun)
"The Buddha Fa is most profound; among all the theories in the world, it is the most intricate and extraordinary science. In order to explore this domain, humankind must fundamentally change its conventional thinking. Otherwise, the truth of the universe will forever remain a mystery to humankind, and everyday people will forever crawl within the boundary delimited by their own ignorance." (Zhuan Falun)
To become a divine being we must relinquish distorted human notions. What Teacher expects of us is a state wherein Dafa practitioners are indeed, "...presiding over Heaven and Earth, rectify the human realm." (Hong Yin II, version A) Please do not have Teacher suffer for us because of our erroneous concepts. Let's get rid of our attachments and human mentalities. In everything we do and every thought we have, let's catch up with the Fa-rectification process so our Teacher will not suffer or worry as much.
