(Minghui.org) Practitioners in my area, including myself, were feeling sluggish when they tried to tell people about Falun Dafa. I had a hard time doing the exercises in the morning or at night, and I appeared to be very lazy and of a negative demeanor. The transcript from the 2014 San Francisco Fa Conference then opened my eyes.

Whenever a new lecture of Master's is published, I would study it a few times and then set it aside. I studied the Fa, but read it mechanically without really absorbing it. I did not look at myself to see if I followed the Falun Dafa principles.

I realize now that I did not pay attention when I sent forth righteous thoughts. No wonder my cultivation state had deteriorated. I did not have energy to do things. The old forces interfered with me, and I was unable to see it.

Improvement with a Change of Outlook

Master told us to send forth righteous thoughts to eliminate any interference by low level beings. But, we did not understand this. Once I recognized our problem, I shared with my fellow practitioners and we improved our understanding of the Fa.

For example, I had a toothache and felt great pain. I looked inward. I remembered that when I ate some candy I thought that sugar could cause a toothache. The thought was not based on the Fa, and thus the old forces exploited my loophole. I immediately thought that my tooth should not hurt, even if I ate sugar. I sent forth righteous thoughts to eliminate anything that interfered with me.

I now pay attention to sending forth righteous thoughts, and disintegrate anything that pushes me to be lazy and pursue comfort. I feel energetic and no longer feel sleepy. My condition has completely changed.

I would like to remind other practitioners who have experienced a similar situation, to send forth righteous thoughts and eliminate anything that interferes with them.
