Falun Dafa Disciples' Divine Powers
“Buddhas only need to think—the thought alone is enough, because Buddhas have a lot of divine powers, many supernormal abilities, and they also have their own powerful gong. (“Teaching the Fa in San Francisco” from Lectures in the United States)
“Starting from the extremely microscopic level, it changes the structures of particles of different levels. And the time they use is that of the fastest dimension, so it’s done instantly. Buddhas do things very quickly, as they aren’t restrained by this dimension and time of ours. They instantly change an object from its very foundation into something else. This is how Buddha Fa’s divine power takes effect.” (“Teaching the Fa in San Francisco” from Lectures in the United States)
Master's words opened my mind: Dafa disciples' supernormal abilities are their divine powers.
Articles on the Minghui website often recount the severe persecution some practitioners have experienced in China. As I read them, I was heartbroken and wished I could have told these practitioners, “Use your divine powers! You have everything, and you have divine weapons and all kinds of Fa-instruments! Why don't you use them?”
A Learning Process to Using Divine Powers
I often tried to practice using my supernormal abilities so that I could use them when I needed to.
When I was illegally detained in Masanjia Forced Labor Camp, I was injected with an unknown drug. “Master, please remove this drug from my body,” I called out in my mind. “I don't want it in my body!”
I didn’t feel the needle pierce my skin, and my arm did not show any signs of the injection. Other practitioners’ skin, however, showed where they had been injected for a long time afterward.
Anything the persecutors do when they torture practitioners, such as injecting unknown drugs or shocking them with electric batons, should have no effect on Dafa disciples. If we think of transferring the drugs or pain into the persecutors, it can happen instantly.
Why did some disciples get poisoned or suffer a mental collapse from the injections? As far as I can tell, they were not trained in how to call forth and use their powers.
If a soldier does not get any training, how will he know how to use his weapon in battle? Practitioners, too, need to train to use their supernormal abilities.
Yet we have not used them for thousands of years, and our human bodies have many restraints, including the old forces’ arrangements. Thus, to use our divine powers requires a learning process.
Obstinate Human Attachments
Human notions also prevent us from using our divine powers.
“If you do not change the human logic that you, as an ordinary human, have formed deep in your bones over thousands of years, you will be unable to break away from this superficial human shell and reach Consummation.” (“Cautionary Advice” from Essentials for Further Advancement)
Human notions exist not only in the surface layer of our human bodies, but also in many layers of particles. It therefore takes strong determination and persistence to find the notions covered by those many layers.
In fact, I failed countless times when I tried to use my supernormal abilities. But I did not give up. I knew we all had these original, inborn capabilities. I firmly believed that, when cultivating in Dafa, these abilities would return.
When some practitioners doubted their divine powers, I could sense the layers and layers of obstinate human attachments. It was like a lock that restrained the divine powers and written on this lock was, “It is impossible.” If a cultivator does not unlock it, he or she may never be able to display the great divine powers he or she has.
Effective, Strong, Righteous
My third eye has not opened. When I use my powers, I put my strong righteous thoughts into the dimension of the tiniest of particles. I first “look” at them and then “think” to use them.
Ancient human beings demonstrated supernormal abilities. I imagine that, when a person tried to solve a problem in ancient times, his first thought was to use his supernormal abilities.
When human beings became more selfish, their supernormal abilities disappeared. Even when they observe supernormal abilities now, they brush them aside as “magic tricks.”
If a Dafa disciple refuses to believe he or his fellow practitioners have supernormal abilities, it is a strong human notion. Master has already told us many times that we have all sorts of divine powers. How can we not believe it while still calling ourselves Dafa disciples?
If we do not let go of these human notions and habits, and if we do not try to use our divine powers, we might not be able to use them when facing evil.
When a practitioner is beaten, if he tries to endure it with his human body, it may indeed result in injury. On the other hand, if we have learned to use our divine powers, they will automatically protect us.
Attention and Awareness of Using Divine Powers
The process of using our divine powers is also a test for our xinxing. The attachments to showing off or zealotry will prevent us from using divine powers.
Many human attachments were eliminated when I looked at things from the perspective of the Fa. As soon as I let go of my attachments, my divine powers awakened. My true eye then saw tiny particles floating around me.
When I used my divine powers, I let my thoughts enter the “true eye” stage. Whatever my true thoughts needed then occurred. Sometimes I failed, however, which made me look at my xinxing for the reasons.
“Supernormal capabilities are basically small tricks,
Dafa is essential.”
(“Pursuing a Righteous Fa Course” from Hong Yin)
We should not seek supernormal abilities, for our cultivation is always first. I began Dafa cultivation in 1996 and never thought of my supernormal abilities before the persecution began. After the persecution started, Master told us to use our righteous thoughts to eliminate evil.
Reading Master's Fa, I saw my shortcomings, and during the past two years, I have become more aware of how to use divine powers.
As we cultivate in Dafa, we disciples are being reborn from humans to divine beings. All evil has reached a dead end, and we should break through all the old forces’ arrangements and become divine beings.
Let us be more diligent during this Fa-rectification period.
