A Momentary Slip in a Cultivator's Thoughts May Lead to Serious Consequences
(Clearwisdom.net) In 2002, I was arrested while a few fellow practitioners and I and were clarifying the truth about Falun Gong. In the police station, when I was interrogated, I kept sending forth righteous thoughts to eliminate the evil in other dimensions. Meanwhile, I sensed that my body was ascending to a higher level in other dimensions. Later, I was sent to another police station.
Under the persecution in that police station, the evil exploited my attachment of fear and my pursuit for an easy and comfortable life until I thought, "I will let it go. I will give up Falun Gong."
"We'd say that a good or bad outcome comes from one thought. The difference in one thought leads to different results." (Zhuan Falun
Measuring myself against Master's teachings, I was very remorseful, especially when I think back to the distinct mindset and the resultant distinct physical perceptions I experienced while I was being held at the first police station.
Several years later I began practicing Falun Gong again. One day when I was doing the meditation exercise, I clearly sensed that I was going across a dark and horrible place. After the exercise, I understood that it was the result of the momentary slip in my thoughts before, which brought me down from a very high level to the human world and even hell. Through studying the Fa I came to understand that every Dafa practitioner had signed a pledge with Teacher before we descended to the human world, to validate the Fa and save sentient beings in the Fa-rectification period. If we fail to safeguard our commitment to Dafa and even turn against Dafa, there will be no place for us in either the human world or the new cosmos when Fa-rectification is accomplished, let alone return to our paradise with Teacher's mighty virtue. Fortunately, Teacher continues to help me with my problems, despite my poor enlightenment quality.
Teacher has told us many times that cultivation is a serious issue, more serious than anything in this world. On our cultivation path in the Fa-rectification era, it is imperative that we stick to the Fa and keep diligently making advancements in our cultivation. As Dafa practitioners, we must safeguard our every single thought at all times, so that we can cultivate to where we need to be and not lose it all simply because of a momentary slip in our thoughts. Otherwise, we will not be worthy of Teacher's compassionate salvation.
