Fa Tools I Have Seen Playing Important Roles
(Minghui.org) Practitioners are aware that cultivators of the past had powerful Fa tools. As I understand it, Falun Dafa practitioners also possess Fa tools that are incredibly numerous, powerful, and envied even by gods and deities.
Many of our Fa tools were given to us by Master. They were given on each cultivation level a practitioner had reached. With these tools, we can eliminate the evil and resolve problems at various levels.
I have seen the powerful display of some Fa tools over the years and would like to share what I saw.
Fa Tools Given by Master
Absorbing Degenerated Substances
When I was sending righteous thoughts, I saw many bad substances in one dimension, and it was very difficult to clear them out. I was very worried and asked Master for help. He appeared, and gave me a red armored tunic. After I put it on, my body turned into a ball that rotated at a very fast speed, absorbing many of the evil elements.
The entire tunic had absorbed a large amount of degenerate substances. Master told me to take it off. He then handed the tunic to a deity and said to clean it well so that it could be used again.
Master's Fa Tools Targeted Many Different Attachments
While I was sending righteous thoughts to help a fellow practitioner, I saw a knife pointed at his chest that then proceeded to cut it open. Many dirty hearts in different colors were purged from the chest. They represented many ugly-looking beings.
The hearts that had an attachment to comfort were in gray clothes. They were laying there sluggishly, and their bodies were covered with worms and insects.
The hearts with an attachment to competitiveness wore red clothes, and every single section hid a soldier with weapons in their hands and on their feet.
Hearts that were filled with jealousy were tightly bound by densely packed poisonous snakes. It appeared that they were ready to suffocate the heart. The snakes bit others and itself viciously. Is it not true that when one hurts others, one also harms oneself?
Those with an attachment to human sentimentality were wearing colorful clothes, with countless hooks sticking out from inside. All kinds of sentiments were hooked to them.
Those with grudges against others had account books with dates on them, filling up the entire heart's capacity. Each account book had an ugly heart drawn on it, with a pointy tongue sticking out from the heart and sharp teeth around it.
The ones attached to resentment had a dark being inside the heart, giving off a foul odor. Those that were arrogant and looking down upon others had a being in their heart with a long neck sticking out, displaying arrogance, with their eyes looking upward. The self-protective heart had a being inside, like a boxer with two fists ready to ward off any blow. When I took a close look at the heart with an attachment to good life in the human world, it was no more than an inn with neatly arranged garbage.
While sending righteous thoughts, I saw that it was very difficult to eliminate each substance; after one layer of degenerated substances was cleared, another layer appeared.
I asked Master to strengthen my heart and he appeared again with all kinds of Fa tools in his hand, which dispersed when he opened his hands. Each Fa tool targeted a different attachment, and very soon the substances disappeared.
The Fa Tool of Looking Within
Master said, “For a cultivator, looking within is a magical tool.” (“Fa Teaching at the 2009 Washington DC International Fa Conference” from Teaching the Fa at the Conference IX)
Master has indeed given us the Fa tool of looking within, but it is up to each and every practitioner how he or she uses it.
There was an experience sharing article in which the practitioner said that he saw a tool that looked like an electric drill, when he was looking within. Upon eliminating an attachment, he saw that his heart was wrapped with a very thick shell, which the drill removed.
When looking within, I found a lot of human attachments, so I sent forth righteous thoughts. I thought that I would drill them away. Next, I saw a whisk, and each silk thread was retractable. There were countless whisks under each thread, and under these countless whisks there were more countless whisks. They were just endless. These whisks were cleaning my body from the most microscopic to the most macroscopic level, not missing any nook or corner.
Once my heart was cleansed, the whisk cleaned a cell as big as myself. One whisk was not enough, so countless whisks appeared to clean this cell. Everything within me was being cleaned, and it was truly a magnificent scene.
Suddenly, I had a deeper understanding of “Buddha's infinite grace.”
I also saw a deity laughing at me as if he was saying, “How could you use an electric drill to get rid of your attachments?” I also found it very pretty laughable myself. The Fa tools Master gives us are all different. We cannot just copy others in the use of these tools.
Fa Tools We Brought Down With Us
I also saw some Fa tools brought down by practitioners. They are all very powerful. I know that I had brought with me a green Ruyi, which to me means that it would help me fulfill my heart's wish. When I do things to validate the Fa and don’t want any interference, the Ruyi would play a role to gather all kinds of righteous factors.
I also saw that I have a Ruyi cover, which can protect those I want to protect; it can also cover evil and destroy them on the spot. However, some evil managed to escape. The Ruyi cover's coverage area is limited; I saw some fellow practitioners' Fa tools taking effect. Even so, some evil still escaped. Master then drew an even bigger circle, and this golden circle contained everything. Nothing could escape.
Eliminating Old Force Arrangements
In the past, when I met up with a few practitioners, I knew that there was an arrangement made for us in remote history. It meant that when we were together, the tribulation one of us had come across would be resolved. However, a long time had passed, and the problem was still there. Master said when talking about the arrangements by the old forces,
“It's not limited just to this. Within the Three Realms they have done many bad things and made arrangements for many things that they wanted. What's more, many of those things have become warped. During the passage of such a long period of time, even the so-called gods of the old forces who originally did those things cannot resolve them. If there were no Fa-rectification they couldn't be resolved. There are a lot of things in the cosmos like that, and it's hard to resolve them without the arrival of the whole immense force of Fa-rectification.” (“Teaching the Fa at the 2003 Atlanta Fa Conference”)
After I read this paragraph several times, I sent forth a thought, “For all those lives that had formed ties with me in history, or things I had promised when in heaven, or lives that were involved with me in one way or another, I can no longer accept our arrangements. I will only accept the arrangements made for me by Master. I do not want to fulfill any of the arrangements made by the old forces or by myself.”
Then, my next thought was, “Everything must conform to the requirements of the Fa-rectification. Master makes daily arrangements, and I won’t allow anything to distract me. All beings who want to help me, play your role in other dimensions and do your best at the fastest speed.”
They needed to know and understand, so I said “Gods will keep a record of your contributions. As for what I had promised and things I am meant to resolve, Master will help me resolve them. You don’t need to worry about those things and should not stick to what had been arranged in the past. Do not distract me from what I need to do. Since you had formed ties with me, you should believe in Dafa and believe that Master will give you the best during the Fa-rectification.”
I often strengthen this thought and keep rectifying myself and everything around me to reduce interference.
It is a truly magnificent scene when we send righteous thoughts. Gods in the universe also come to help, and they use their power and Fa tools to eliminate the evil.
Fellow practitioners, let us change our concepts and free our minds. We must use our divine thoughts in handling issues we come across. Let us use our Fa tools and enable them to play an even more powerful role in the Fa-rectification.
