(Clearwisdom.net) The CCP continues to brutally harass and persecute Falun Gong despite the fact that the very end of the Fa rectification period is near.

Any attachment can be a loophole for the evil to take advantage of, and become a cozy spot for it to lurk in. I believe that our attachments to time and to the Olympic Games caused the evil to interfere very strongly in the past couple of years. We doubted Dafa and doubted Master, which is definitely wrong. I feel that we should study the Fa more and strengthen our righteous thoughts. We should also send forth righteous thoughts that directly target old force arrangements. By doing so, we can avoid many losses.

Master has stressed the importance of sending forth righteous thoughts in many of his lectures. For instance, Master said,

"Let me tell you, all those who remain and that can persecute Dafa and Dafa disciples are due to our students themselves. Students who haven't taken sending forth righteous thoughts seriously: the evil in the dimensions that you are supposed to shoulder and be responsible for has not been eliminated. That's the cause. So you must take sending forth righteous thoughts seriously. No matter whether you think you have the ability or not, you should do it. What you eliminate from your own mind are ones which have an effect within the expanse of your own body; at the same time, you need to eliminate the external ones, which are directly related to the dimensions you're in. If you don't eliminate them, then they not only persecute you and restrain you, but also persecute other students, other Dafa disciples. As you know, the persecution that Dafa disciples in Mainland China suffer is quite severe, so each student has to truly, clearly realize what his responsibility is, and when he sends forth righteous thoughts he has to be able to truly calm his mind and truly produce the effect of righteous thoughts. So this is something extremely critical, extremely important. Then if every student is able to do that, I can tell you, with five minutes of sending forth righteous thoughts together, the evil in the Three Realms will never exist again." ("Fa-Lecture at the Conference in Florida, U.S.A")

In recent years, I've had some deep understandings and experiences. Lessons of not paying attention to sending forth righteous thoughts are severe, even catastrophic. When I first began to do it, I felt tired and sleepy, so I didn't want to do it. After a while, in fact, I forgot to do it. Just like that, I spent a year without sending forth righteous thoughts. The police arrested me and sent me to a brainwashing facility. I eventually realized the importance of cultivation and that I should send forth righteous thoughts more. One day I decided, "From now on, I will send forth righteous thoughts more. Besides doing it four times, I will do it on top of the hour. As long as I have time, I will do it."

No matter where I went, I brought my righteous thoughts with me, on foot, riding a bike or sitting in a car. In the beginning, while I rode my bicycle to work, as soon as I started to send righteous thoughts, I felt myself, as well as my bike, become gigantic and tall. It was a miraculous feeling. Just like that, I did it for a while and felt my righteous thoughts were stronger. I had the courage to go out to distribute Falun Gong materials. I did all the three things. I kept on doing them and felt my cultivation state improve. I found the happiness of, "After passing the shady willow trees, there will be bright flowers and another village ahead!" (Zhuan Falun, 2000 translation version)

One day, an idea appeared in my mind: When I am off during holidays, I should send forth righteous thoughts more, no less than eight times. Just like that, I continued to do it and felt wonderful. My righteous thoughts became stronger and stronger. I also found that at work when it is time for us to send righteous thoughts in unison, my colleagues simply leave the office. That helped me to concentrate on my righteous thoughts. For the past few years, it has been like this. Master encourages me, helping me to build confidence. I have also experienced the wonders and beauty of Dafa. I am so happy!
