(Minghui.org) Recently, I have felt that sending forth righteous thoughts has clearly a strong effect in this dimension. I would like to share my experiences and hope that we can all pay attention to this.
Since my celestial eye is closed, I can't see other dimensions or scenes. But I can feel energy mechanisms when I do the exercises. I also feel strong energy when sending forth righteous thoughts.
Recently my family was in a bad situation. My father, who is a practitioner, had a strong attachment to money. He started a small business and lost money, but he didn't recognize his attachment. Instead, he kept thinking about making money. This created many conflicts in my family. In the end, I wanted to give up on him. I felt that no matter what we said to him, he did not listen. Sometimes he acted extremely stubborn, as if something else was controlling him. I felt I should leave him alone. Sometimes, I saw him playing online games, chatting with a QQ group, or doing something that was not in the Fa. I thought, “How can he be worthy of being a Dafa disciple?” This thought unconsciously matched the way of the old forces, and I didn't have the confidence to oppose the old forces.
I thought it over carefully: Teacher didn't give up on him, so how could I give up on him? As long as Teacher does not give up on him, it means there is hope. I recalled reading a sharing article in which someone's sister was arrested. She didn't have strong righteous thoughts, but was released nevertheless, because her brother had persistently been sending forth righteous thoughts for her. So I thought I should send forth righteous thoughts: “Disintegrate the elements of the old forces that want to hurt my family financially! Also strengthen my father's righteous thoughts and disintegrate all the evil factors that control him to play computer games.”
One day father told me that he had had a dream. In the dream he was taking an examination. Everyone else had written something, but his paper was blank and he was sweating. That day when he got home from work, he turned on the computer, not to play games but to read Minghui articles and listen to Teacher's Fa. I was truly surprised. My family's situation is gradually turning around. Thank you, Teacher!
I had been sending truth-clarification text messages, but hadn't received any positive feedback. Then I worked with my mother. She sent forth righteous thoughts and I sent the text messages. I received a “thank you” message for the first time! Seeing that people understood the truth, I was very happy.
Following are two incidents not related to sending forth righteous thoughts, but they made me realize that Dafa disciples' thoughts have energy and sometimes we will get whatever we think about. One month I spend a lot of money, my computer died, and I wanted to buy a new one. I said to myself, “It would be nice if I could have some extra income, then I would have enough money.” Within a few days, my boss rewarded me with a bonus, an extra income. The second incident concerned the management of my company preparing some gifts for the company's year-end party. When they were drawing the top prize, I thought, “It would be nice if that was me.” (This thought is an attachment to personal gain. It might not be righteous, but I didn't realize it at that time.) As the result, I was picked as the winner. We Dafa disciples need to truly watch our every thought and action. I feel that our thoughts are very powerful.
Teacher said in “Fa Teaching at the 2009 Washington DC International Fa Conference:”
“As Fa-rectification continually pushes ahead, that phenomenon will become more obvious, for your strength will be increasing as the evil's decreases. At times when your human attachments are severe and there is interference from evil and bad factors, however, it will instead be the case that when you get stronger it becomes weaker, and when you get weaker it becomes stronger. As Fa-rectification forges ahead and bad factors are further destroyed and weakened, to the point that they'll be no match for you, your strength will show itself to be stronger and stronger. In the future, at a certain point, you will increasingly see Dafa disciples manifest their power, though reaching that point will mean the end has been reached--the very end of the end. So, as Dafa disciples go about validating the Fa and saving sentient beings, their attitude, state of mind, and manner of doing things are all critical, for such things can determine what changes take place in this world. A single person can determine the outcome of things within a certain expanse, and when we are talking about even more Dafa disciples--since there are so many Dafa disciples, even tens of millions--once they put their minds to something, it's something to reckon with.”
I hope that all fellow practitioners will pay attention to sending forth righteous thoughts and watch their own thoughts and actions, so that we can, with righteous thoughts, walk well on the path that Teacher arranges for us.
