Eliminating Interference When the Exercises Become Difficult
(Minghui.org) I recently began to feel very tired when I did the morning exercises.
When I did Exercise Two, my arms felt very heavy. After Exercise Four, my legs and feet were very painful, and I was drenched in sweat.
I began practicing Falun Dafa more than 20 years ago, and I've never missed one day in doing the exercises. With the exception of when I just began learning the exercises, I never felt they were difficult or tiring. So, why was this happening now?
In order to gain some insight, I shared what happened with fellow practitioners during group study. Others said they also had similar experiences. I thought that since we were all experiencing this, it must be a common phenomenon for veteran practitioners. Master may have arranged this for us to pay back our karma faster. Whatever happens, we shouldn't analyze it.
With that thought, I continued my morning exercises and endured the tired feeling.
Two days ago I brought the topic up again during group study. One practitioner said: “I had a similar experience and realized that what you have been through is interference from the old forces.”
He went on: “After I heard you share last time, my arms also began to feel heavy during the morning exercises. I immediately told myself: I don’t want this, and my righteous thought is strong enough to eliminate the interference. My arms immediately felt very relaxed again. Master removed the bad stuff from my body. Think about it, from the first day we began practicing, the Falun Dafa exercises open hundreds of energy channels in our bodies.”
He also recalled Master’s teaching in Lecture at the First Conference in North America:
“Have you ever thought of the fact that practicing cultivation is the best form of rest? You can obtain the kind of rest that can’t be obtained through sleeping. Nobody would say: “The exercises are making me so tired that I can’t do anything today.” One would only say: “The exercises are making my whole body relaxed and at ease. I don’t feel sleepy after a sleepless night. I feel full of energy. ...”
I suddenly understood. He is right! Master told us :
“In our universe there’s another law: if it’s about something you’re seeking or just want, nobody can stop you.” (Zhuan Falun)
Master also said:
“They are observing your every act and move, your every thought and idea, ...” (“Fa Teaching Given at the 2016 New York Fa Conference”)
I realized that my thought was not righteous and I must rectify it.
The next day when I did morning exercises, I refused to go along with the interference. As a result, I no longer felt tired.
