Interference Vanished When Righteous Thoughts Emerged through Fa Study
(Clearwisdom.net) In 2008 when the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) two congresses was held in the spring and the Beijing Olympics and Special Olympics were held in the summer, some interference occurred in our region. The so-called "interference" is a manifestation of practitioners acknowledging the evil persecution to a certain extent. When doing Fa validation, the first thought is about the "current situation." From October to December, the CCP is conducting the "Autumn Wind" plan. Slogans blanket the streets and the police and security guards line up to check the streets, markets, roads, and neighborhoods. The atmosphere is very tense. But we are practitioners, Falun Dafa disciples walking toward godhood, how can we be interfered by such an "atmosphere?"
I found there are three mindsets regarding this current situation. The first one is that we should delay group activities in such a tense atmosphere; the second is that we should go send forth righteous thoughts near the government, police, and justice departments to eliminate the evil; the third one is that the "Autumn Wind" strategy is aimed at bad people and has nothing to so with us, good people who are doing the most righteous things. These fellow practitioners are doing the three things as any other time period, and their hearts are not moved one bit. I believe that, as a cultivator, we should always keep the Fa in mind, so that we can measure everyday people's words and actions against the Fa and use righteous thoughts to take righteous actions.
In 2007, the police ransacked a practitioner's home and found several Falun Dafa books and materials. They arrested her but she kept sending forth righteous thoughts and clarifying the facts and refused to cooperate. Her family went to the police station after work to demand her immediate release and to expose the police who extorted money by arresting Falun Dafa practitioners. She was quickly released, but they asked her for 2000 yuan. This practitioner's attachment grew after returning home. She could not calm down to study the Fa or do the exercises. She would wonder when the police would again come to her door to demand money. Her fellow practitioners heard about her mindset, exchanged their insights with her, encouraged her to send forth righteous thoughts more frequently to disintegrate the evil interference and put down her human attachments. They reminded her, "How much of Teacher's Fa do we remember? Why would one remark from everyday people disturb us for several days? Are we letting fear dominate? We should actively dissolve the evil like the Fa has guided us." She gradually let go of the fear after studying the Fa and sending forth righteous thoughts. The police did not dare to come to her door.
Another practitioner thought we must diligently and solidly cultivate; otherwise, the evil would exploit our gaps. He admitted to the evil persecution unknowingly, and the evil found an excuse to detain him in the detention center. One good point is that he enlightened to this problem quickly. He recited the Fa, send forth righteous thoughts, and clarified the facts, which enabled him to quickly leave the detention.
"Under the tests that the human mind is put to, a state will come about in a cultivator when understandings born of both divine and human thoughts are present and collide. When human thinking gains the upper hand, that person heads toward humanness; when divine thinking and a person's righteous thoughts gain the upper hand, he heads toward godhood." ("Teaching the Fa in San Francisco, 2005")
The one thought we cultivators send out determines the direction of our path. In order to have righteous thoughts, we must cultivate by studying the Fa well. Every single sentence we remember will clean out some demon nature from our realm.
I was not diligent in studying the Fa before and had never memorized Zhuan Falun completely. I used 10 months to memorize Zhuan Falun once starting in 2007. I felt very solid from the bottom of my heart. On August 29, 2008, the day I finished memorizing Zhuan Falun, Teacher encouraged me in my dream. He bestowed upon me the ability to disintegrate the evil. I saw the evil disappear instantly wherever my finger pointed. I enlightened to how much we sacrifice and to how much we will gain. I hand copied Zhuan Falun once this year, and I am memorizing the book again from the beginning. The more we put the Fa in our mind, the quicker our heart will be cleansed. When we always let righteous thoughts be uppermost in our minds, we will naturally do what is righteous. As the righteous thoughts emerge, the evil interference will vanish.
