Eliminating the State of Mind of “I Can't Do Anything About It”
(Minghui.org) I felt that the article “The Truth Behind ‘I Can't Do Anything about It’” is really good. I was astonished to read that whatever we have “agreed to” in our dreams could also be exploited by the old forces.
I think we should reflect on this issue and negate the old forces' arrangements. In our cultivation, our gap will be exploited whenever we are not attentive. Thus, we must look carefully at those thoughts that are not righteous.
How do we negate this state of “I can't do anything about it” in our cultivation when we are in delusion? If we could see the progress of the Fa-rectification, we would have stronger righteous thoughts and the incorrect state would change in an instant. Instead, if we “firmly believe while in delusion,” Master will give us the best of everything and look after us every minute. Without our mighty Master, we would not have gotten to where we are today.
Regardless of whether we can see or not, we must understand that the righteous forces in the cosmos have long ago gotten the upper hand. Master has already told us about this.
Today is April 25. As I write this article, I recalled that year, when practitioners were not intimidated by the evil. We were not in the state of “I can't do anything about it.” We thus could expose the persecution for 18 years, allowing many sentient beings to understand the truth. Practitioners have also overcome the test of life and death.
“I can't do anything about it” is a passive state and not based on righteous thoughts. We do not want to be in that state.
Let's take the story of “The Foolish Old Man Removes the Mountains” as an example. We know that when faced with the two mountains, the old man did not have the thought of “I can't do anything about it.” He firmly believed that the mountains could be removed. His faith was precious, thus the divine beings fulfilled his wish.
In the story “Journey to the West,” Sun Wukong faced many demons on his journey. He was not the least afraid and fought with them relentlessly.
In the Shen Yun 2017 show, when Tang Sanzang (also known as Xuanzang) and his disciples faced the eight hundred miles of Flaming Mountains, they did not say “I can't do anything about it.” Therefore, Bodhisattva helped them and they successfully passed through the flames.
What should you do if you are in the state of “I can't do anything about it?” You need to tell yourself that you are a Dafa practitioner, that you have Master and the Fa, and that you need to negate this state. Do not acknowledge it. Then, recite the Fa in your heart and believe that you can do well.
If any practitioner encounters this state, he or she must believe that one can do well. Then, we will definitely do well and follow Master home.
We are Fa-rectification period Dafa disciples. It is the supreme title in the cosmos. We should not look down on ourselves. Master has chosen us. We can do it.
We are nothing before Master and Dafa. Yet, when facing the evil, we are tall and incomparably noble.
Our thoughts and actions must be righteous. Let us listen to Master, and there will be no “Flaming Mountains” that we cannot overcome.
