(Clearwisdom.net) I often read experience sharing articles from practitioners on Minghui (Chinese version of Clearwisdom.net) and have greatly benefited. I would like to share what I have enlightened to with fellow practitioners, and to support the Minghui website.

Enlightening from “When One’s Buddha Nature Emerges, It will Shake the World of Ten Directions. ” (Zhuan Falun)

If time allows when clarifying the truth to people, I tell them from a scientific viewpoint, why reciting “Falun Dafa is good, and Truthfulness-Compassion-Tolerance is good” will bring them good fortune. Master told us in Falun Gong:

“Human thinking is a type of message, a type of energy, and a form of material existence. When a person thinks, the brain produces a frequency. Sometimes chanting mantras can be very effective. Why? Because the universe has its own vibrational frequency, and an effect will be produced when the frequency of your mantra coincides with that of the universe. For it to be effective, though, it certainly has to be benign in nature, since wicked things aren’t allowed to exist in the universe.”

While saving sentient beings shouldn't we inspire their Buddha nature under our purest and most benevolent mentality? The more peaceful and compassionate we are, the frequency that our words and thoughts generate would be more likely resonate with their Buddha nature from the bottom of their hearts, and the energy we emit would help cleanse and awaken them.

Is Sending Forth Righteous Thoughts for Ourselves or for Others?

Recently I had a deeper understanding of “Each and every barrier must be broken through, here and there, demons are everywhere” (Hong Yin, Tempering One’s Heart and Will). I learned a hard lesson because I had an unrighteous thought of “Master arranged me to save that person on a certain date so there should not be any trouble for that person before that day,” but the evil brought trouble to that person. The old forces are out to destroy sentient beings and they will do anything when they see a loophole.

I now remind myself to send forth righteous thoughts to cleanse myself and my environment anytime and anywhere in my daily life. Before I only did it when I clarified the truth or when I was in close distance to the evil. I would like to remind follow practitioners to pay attention to this.

During a recent sharing with my mother, who is a practitioner, I enlightened that there was a serious problem in our thinking process. It is right for us to send forth righteous thoughts to prevent the evil factors from taking advantage of our loopholes, but if the purpose is for ourselves and that we are afraid of being persecuted, that is accepting the evil to some extent. If we change our mindset and emphasize sending forth righteous thoughts to be responsible for the Fa and sentient beings, with the key component being that it's for others and the Fa, the effects will be different.

Looking Down on Others Is Jealousy

Looking down on others is not only from one's arrogance and one's attachment to oneself, but also the reflection of one's jealousy. We should keep reminding ourselves not to destroy ourselves because of jealousy, like Shen Gongbao that Master mentioned in Zhuan Falun.

On Validating the Fa or Validating the Disaster

A few days ago, one of my relatives who withdrew from the CCP and its affiliations, suddenly said to me, “You should not think about 2012 too much. If the predictions for 2012 do not happen, what will you do?” I was stunned for a moment, and then said to him, “We never hope that disasters in 2012 will happen, as we do not wish to see any sentient beings being eliminated. Our purpose is to warn people to choose a good future by siding with goodness so as to avoid such disasters. The heavenly principles are to punish the evil and promote the good, so we should stay away from the evil and stand together with the good.”

After I calmly thought about this I realized I did have the attachment of validating the disaster instead of validating the Fa. Nothing is accidental. Didn't this remind me that I had a strong attachment to using the disasters to scare people into making the right choice? Doesn't this indicate that I have an attachment to time? The disaster can be used as a warning, but it is more important that we should let sentient beings truly feel the righteousness of Dafa. We should use the power of Dafa to awaken people, distinguish good from evil and choose their future.

The time of retribution will come. The key for us is to validate the Fa. If disasters in 2012 do not happen, we could save more people. I myself feel there is not much time left and we should make better use of our time.

The Reflection of Lust When Noticing Attractive People

I always pay attention to eliminating the attachment of lust. I enlightened lately that it is a reflection of lust to judge who is pretty or whose clothes are attractive. Not to judge or be affected by these things is a truly high standard, and we should be strict with ourselves.
