A Cultivator Should Not Interfere with Everyday Affairs
(Minghui.org) Recently a practitioner mentioned in an experience-sharing article that he had used supernormal powers to help policemen catch criminals. In my understanding, this does not align with the Fa.
Master said in Zhuan Falun:
“When they commit wrongdoing, the higher lives will kill them. When this is about to happen, they will run and get on the Buddha statues. Usually, a great enlightened person does not casually interfere with the principles of everyday people. The higher a great enlightened person’s level is, the less he or she would bother to interfere with the principles of everyday people, not even a bit. After all, this higher being will not suddenly shatter a Buddha statue with lightening, for he or she will not do such a thing. The higher being will thus leave them alone if they climb onto Buddha statues.”
Master also said in the article “Stop the Evil Acts with Righteous Thoughts” (The Essentials of Diligent Progress)
“While sending righteous thoughts, don’t panic or be afraid, and as long as that wicked person keeps being violent, keep sending righteous thoughts. This is not to be done with anyone or anything else in the world outside of the persecution. The basis of what Dafa disciples do is saving people and doing good. These righteous thoughts are to stop wicked people from doing evil, to warn other bad people, and to prevent the world’s people from committing sins, and their purpose is still to save all beings.”
Thus, I think this practitioner's behavior strayed from the Fa. How can a cultivator use his or her supernormal power to meddle in the everyday people's affairs? Master has told us again and again that this can only be used to eliminate the evil while clarifying the truth and saving sentient beings. Righteous thoughts and supernormal powers are for us to validate the Fa. Using them to catch criminals will set a bad example for the future.
