Sending Righteous Thoughts More Frequently
(Minghui.org) My cultivation state had not been good for a while. I found some attachments and eliminated them, however I still could not concentrate when I studied the Fa. I felt depressed. The weather was very hot and humid. It was so hot that I could hardly breathe. And I didn't do the three things well.
When I was reading the Fa one morning with an absent mind, a fellow practitioner stopped by. She shared with me about her own cultivation state and also shared about sending forth righteous thoughts.
She said she realized that the time left for us is limited, so she wanted to do the three things well. But she was just not able to be diligent, so she wanted to send forth righteous thoughts more and clear herself. She did so three times, and each time she sent forth righteous thoughts for more than half an hour. However, she still felt that her field was not clear and her cultivation state was not fully changed. So she sent forth righteous thoughts again. Her heart was very calm and she saw a scene in front of her.
She said she saw that some old forces (who looked very weak and vulnerable) trapped many beings with something similar to ropes. They threatened these beings, saying they were not qualified to go into the future. Those numerous beings waited there helplessly, looking forward to Dafa disciples’ saving them. It seemed that they had been there waiting for a long time and were desperate.
The fellow practitioner told me she had tears seeing this. She suddenly realized her strong responsibility and felt regretful. The notice from the Dafa Association to strengthen righteous thoughts had been issued for almost ten days, but she didn't pay attention to it. She realized that it was because of her that those beings were kidnapped by the old forces.
She said that she asked for Master's help and did not acknowledge the old forces' arrangements. She told the old forces to let go of the sentient beings and let them walk into the future. However, she was not able to see more scenes because she was too sad and could not control her tears.
She sent forth righteous thoughts for 40 minutes. The word “save sentient beings” still lingered in her ears after she finished. She said that she had only realized that sending forth righteous thoughts was to eliminate the evil. She didn't realize there were also responsibilities of saving people in sending forth righteous thoughts.
I was deeply touched by her sharing. We decided to send forth righteous thoughts together because it was near noon when practitioners send them together.
We were very calm. We had tears. The sense of responsibility to save people strengthened our righteous thoughts. We sent forth righteous thoughts for one hour and twenty minutes.
Amazingly, we didn't feel the humidity and heat. We felt a breeze instead. In the end, the element in the air that made me depressed was gone. However, there was no change when I took a look at the thermometer. I suddenly realized that the abnormal weather also resulted from the evil elements. I also understood the importance of sending forth righteous thoughts and realized why the Dafa Association sent this notice.
I also thought that the heavy workload, deteriorated family environment, and chores may also be reflections of evil elements in this dimension.
At different stages of Fa-rectification, Dafa disciples have sent righteous thoughts to target the Communist Party, the old forces, and all the other evil factors. Fa rectification also requires us to eliminate the final element that the old forces could use. It is all for the purpose of saving people.
“Dafa disciples are Gods who have descended to the human world with the responsibility to assist Master in saving sentient beings, shouldering the responsibility of saving sentient beings in the lower realms.” (“Fa Teaching at the 2016 New York Fa Conference”)
In this final stage of Fa-rectification, let's remind each other and keep up with the Fa- rectification requirements to fulfill our vows. Let's play the role of saving sentient beings to truly assist Master.
