Fundamentally Change Human Notions
(Clearwisdom.net) For a long time, I my stomach felt bloated and I couldn't eat a lot. Sometimes I felt good; other times not so good. This did not affect my work or daily life too much, but I just didn't feel good. I knew this was because I had an attachment to food. Because I didn't have a clear understanding from the perspective of the Fa, and was only looking on the surface, the old forces continued to reinforce my attachment and continued to exploit my gap. It affected my ability to do well the three things I should do as a Dafa practitioner.
I told myself that if I had an attachment to the quantity, then I should eat less; if I was attached to the quality, then I should eat simpler foods. However, I didn't realize that I was still looking at the issue from within the issue. Recently, as I tried to memorize the section "The Issue of the Celestial Eye" in Zhuan Falun, I noticed my progress was slow. I knew that my xinxing was not high enough and it formed a barrier. In other words, I took illusions in the human world too seriously. I didn't understand "...every phenomenon in human society is illusory and unreal." (Zhuan Falun)
This morning, I woke up and felt that my stomach was heavy and filled with filth. I have been practicing for over a decade, yet I felt that this part of my body had not been transformed into high-energy matter. On the issue of food, I was full of human notions, even deviated human notions. I cared about what vegetables were nutritious, what food had higher levels of iron, what food could improve one's appearance, and what had high calcium content so my son could grow taller, etc. When I dug deeper, I found a more serious problem: Although I had eliminated a lot of attachments over the last ten years, I had not given up the attachment to food. I often joked with my husband, "Nothing in the human world can give me joy, except for food. If I eat well, I feel very satisfied." What a strong attachment!
We have come to the human world to harmonize with the Fa and assist Master in the Fa-rectification. In the human world, food is just for maintaining our ability to live. There should be no distinction between good and bad food. As long as we are full, we are fine. Some practitioners with supernormal abilities have seen that rich dishes such as fish and meat are actually filthy in another dimension. After I changed my notion, I didn't feel my stomach was either heavy or filthy. It must be that Master saw that I recognized my problem, so he removed the impure matter in me. Thank you Master!
