Human Notions Cannot Eliminate the Old Forces' Arrangements
(Minghui.org) Most Falun Dafa practitioners understand that they should deny the old forces' arrangements. However, sometimes the things we do may cause us to fall into the old forces' trap.
In one particular case, a police officer told a practitioner that his house might get ransacked. The practitioner hid his Falun Gong materials, and as a result did not lose anything when his house was ransacked. That practitioner felt lucky and told other practitioners about it.
He was arrested two days later.
I realized that he was using human notions to deal with the situation, which was what the old forces wanted. Even if he avoided the tribulation, the bad elements were not eliminated, and his xinxing had not improved. In my opinion, he should have looked within to find the problem, improved himself, and sent righteous thoughts to disintegrate the the old forces' arrangements.
Interference from the Old Forces
I had a dream that I was in jail. It upset me, but I managed to calm down. I realized that Master had not arranged tribulations for us after July 20, 1999. It was obviously the old forces who sent me that dream. I could not accept it.
I said in my mind, “Old forces, do not show me this. I am very much aware that you want me to acknowledge you and to walk the path you've arranged. You would then persecute me. However, I do not accept you and you have no reason to bother me.” I eliminated the bad thoughts and the interference.
The Minghui website published an article about a practitioner who cooperated with local authorities to provide information about his fellow practitioners, who were all subsequently arrested.
The author of the article was on the list of those who had been sold out, but he was busy with Dafa work and did not try to escape. Instead, he sent forth righteous thoughts, recalling Master’s teaching:
“If every Dafa disciple can think and act righteously as he goes about things and can look at things with righteous thoughts under any circumstance, none of you will become afraid when facing persecution. If that is how you are, who would dare to persecute you!” (“Teaching the Fa in San Francisco, 2005”)
He understood that he was a Dafa particle who is on this earth to save people who have been fooled by evil, and he had nothing to do with the old forces. He suddenly felt an invisible power connected with the Fa, and his fear disappeared.
Support Fellow Practitioners
Fellow practitioners need to care about each other when facing persecution. One practitioner wrote to me saying that he was surrounded by evil. He said he might leave home.
I replied that he should go home and not be concerned about it, and that he needed to deny all of that evil. I also sent forth righteous thoughts for him. He was fine. I realized that was also a test for me. We need to take care of our fellow practitioners in line with the Fa instead of using human notions.
We all want to deny the existence of the old forces. But denying the old forces with human notions will not do. The old forces should not exist, but as long as the Fa-rectification period is not over, there are still gods from the old cosmos. If a Dafa practitioner uses human notions, he will be unable to deny the old forces' arrangements.
On the other hand, if one is completely in line with the Fa, he will have the mighty power of the Fa. The old forces' gods dare not oppose Dafa, and the evil is now very weak. We need to solidly cultivate ourselves well and improve our xinxing.
When we deal with any situation without using human notions, the evil cannot sneak in, and thus persecution cannot exist. If we truly reach the realm of selflessness, with great compassion and forbearance, we will be able to be responsible for the new cosmos and the old forces will dare not persecute anyone.
One Minghui article mentioned that a practitioner had a stroke. He did not think that he had a problem. Although it took him more than two hours to get dressed, he saw himself as normal. He soon was back to normal.
Another article was about a female practitioner who developed a festering cavity in her breast. It was unbearably painful to do the Dafa exercises, but when she finished the one-hour moving exercises, the hole in her breast had disappeared.
Master saw her pure mind and strong righteous thoughts. Dafa is omnipotent!
