(Clearwisdom.net) The ability to send righteous thoughts is a powerful gift Teacher has given practitioners of the {Fa} Rectifying period. It uses Fa Rectifying words to wield supernatural abilities, Fa instruments, and warrior deities; it even sends requests to righteous gods and Teacher's Fashen to eliminate evil matter and beings that disrupt Fa Rectification and hinder the salvation of sentient beings. Every time we send righteous thoughts, a battle between good and evil takes place in a certain area. Therefore, the process is a venerable and serious one.

The purpose of sending righteous thoughts is to eradicate evil, aid Teacher in Fa Rectification, save sentient beings, and cultivate in the Fa Rectification period. It is not to resolve practitioners' personal problems in ordinary life. For example, if a practitioner keeps sending righteous thoughts so that his or her child will receive extraordinary results on their university entrance exam, then wouldn't the warrior deities in other dimensions be caught between tears and laughter?

In reality, at the same time Teacher bestowed upon us the powerful ability to send righteous thoughts, he said:

"But if you use this for something a cultivator shouldn't, it won't work; as soon as the thought arises, retribution will follow or your level will drop. Remember this!" ("Teaching the Fa at the 2001 Canada Fa Conference" from Guiding the Voyage,).

I hope every practitioner will treat sending righteous thoughts seriously.
