Sending Righteous Thoughts to Help Imprisoned and Released Practitioners
(Minghui.org) Falun Dafa Practitioner A told me on July 1st, “I had a dream that a woman practitioner in a prison was raped.” She had another dream in which one of her family members, who was also a practitioner, almost got raped. I told her, “It could be the demon of lust interfering with practitioners. Let's send forth righteous thoughts to eliminate the evil in prisons.”
Demonic Beasts Violating Imprisoned Practitioners
While I was sending forth righteous thoughts, I saw an evil Kun, which is an enormous legendary fish, rising from and submerging into the sea. Then, it materialized through a crack on the ground
A demonic beast called Tan, which is a dark chubby being with short limbs and tough skin, emerged immediately after I saw the Kun, appearing under a women's prison. I knew that it was going to persecute practitioners.
We send forth righteous thoughts, and our energy destroyed a large amount of evil substances, and sealed off Tan. Many sharp swords surrounded Tan. One sword cut into the back of Tan's neck, another into its body, and a third one into its tail. Practitioner A used a powerful weapon to hold down Tan. The sword in its body expanded and cut it into pieces.
My main spirit took out a poisonous gland from Tan's body and I was getting ready to throw it into Hell, when Master appeared and stopped me. He pulled Tan's body into a container and a deity took it into another dimension. I realized that exploding Tan's body could have contaminated many beings.
Many things dawned on me when sending forth righteous thoughts. The evil Kun in the East Sea periodically supplies energy to Tan. Both of them are gears on the old mechanism controlled by the degraded deities. The raping of that practitioner seen by A was true in a sense. But it was not a human violating a human, but Tan instilling materials of demon nature into a woman practitioner. Tan had attempted, but failed to do the same thing to fellow practitioner A's family member, because A and I often sent forth righteous thoughts for her.
Investigating Demonic Interference
I decided to investigate the damage that Tan's degenerated material could do. I found a long list of issues and will share a few below:
1. Feeling inferior, dispirited, unmotivated and being in a weak state of mind2. Being easily led astray3. Thinking of having reached consumation3. Showing symptoms of illness, or being close to death4. Feeling strong fear5. Having strong lust and desires6. Indulging in video games, movies, the Internet, or having a strong attachment to beauty, money and other demonic interference.
All of these are hidden dangers that could cause serious trouble if they aren't eliminated.
Eliminating Demonic Interference
When I sent forth righteous thoughts at 6 p.m., I continued to eliminate the evil for another woman practitioner. It was a huge dimension in her abdomen. Evil substances were distributed around and between her cells. Some of them looked like opium poppy flowers, and some like evil animals with sharp teeth. There were countless beings in various shapes. It was very difficult to eliminate them. I became anxious, but calmed down when thinking of Master eliminating so many evil beings with his boundless power.
Everything I have done had been arranged by Master. I often see Master watching and protecting me. Come to think of it, most of the issues were actually resolved by Master. I witnessed Master's greatness! It helped me remain humble and on guard against self-complacency.
In the evening, I combined my energy with that of other practitioners and cleansed the evil in the women's prison. A large number of aggressive evil beings appeared. Our energy eliminated them on a large scale. Many underground tunnels were connected to other prisons. More evil beings rushed in through these tunnels to help the evil in the prison. I let them in and eliminated them.
“I can tell you that the suffering and tribulations endured by our Dafa disciples are not only aimed at their personal cultivation—there are also factors related to high-level beings’ testing Dafa using the fact that the students have karma, using 'improving them' as an excuse, and using degenerate beings at low levels to carry out the persecution. In fact, all of these have harmed the Fa-rectification. You’ve not only been enduring tribulations created by human beings.” (Teaching the Fa at the Western U.S. Fa Conference from Guiding the Voyage)
Cultivation Is Most Serious
There are reasons behind some practitioners' poor cultivation state after they were released from prison. Some of them went astray and thought they had reached consummation. Some behaved like ordinary people. Some rushed to join Falun Dafa truth clarification work in order to catch up, but were arrested again. Some had serious problems of lust. Some experienced serious sickness karma and passed away.
A woman practitioner in our province had been imprisoned for years for appealing for Falun Dafa in Beijing. After she was released, her family verbally abused her and other tribulations stopped her from diligent cultivation. When I was sending forth righteous thoughts for her, I found many evil beings and a vast dark sea in her dimension. She eventually passed away.
A young male practitioner had strong attachment to lust, which had been arranged for by the old forces. Such an arrangement could have been broken through by solid cultivation. He was imprisoned where the demon of lust gained control over him after he was released. Even when he was made aware of his attachment, he failed to correct himself. In the end he gave up cultivation.
Cultivation is most serious. Failing to follow the Fa or eliminate lust will lead a cultivator to the path paved by the old forces, which may lead to losing one's life.
Practitioners who have been imprisoned bear many marks of persecution, either physical, psychological, or from those that afflict them from another dimension. These marks could be eliminated by studying the Fa, doing the exercises and sending forth righteous thoughts. If practitioners fail to make diligent progress, any of their attachments could be magnified by the bad materials forced on them in prisons or detention centers. It could cause serious interference with their cultivation and even destroy them.
To avoid losses to Dafa, Master said,
“In order to completely eliminate the persecution of Dafa disciples by the dark minions, rotten demons, and old forces, all Dafa disciples around the world—particularly the Dafa disciples in each region of mainland China—are to concertedly send righteous thoughts toward those evil places, thoroughly dissolving all evil beings and elements that persecute Dafa disciples, clearing away the evil circumstances under which Dafa disciples are persecuted in mainland China, and saving the world’s people, [thereby] fulfilling the duties of a Dafa disciple and advancing toward godhood.” (“Thoroughly Dissolve the Evil” from The Essentials of Diligent Progress Vol. III)
The Great Value of Support Among Practitioners
Whenever a practitioners is released from prison, we have to help them by studying the Fa, doing the exercises and sending forth righteous thoughts with them. We have to help them eliminate the contaminants and evil substances that had been forced on them while imprisoned. When practitioners' families stop them from getting in touch with other practitioners, we have to send forth righteous thoughts for them.
We should treat the released fellow practitioners with compassion and tolerance, and avoid blaming them for their shortcomings or attachments. Getting mad with them for their shortcomings would only push them away. These shortcomings and attachments had been created and forced upon them by the old forces. No blame can possibly solve any problem at a deeper level. But the energy of compassion can melt the degenerated materials.
We have come down to this world from higher levels of the cosmos, and endured countless sufferings one level after another. The ups and downs in the Three Realms made it a tough journey to reach this point of the Fa-rectification. Our tenaciousness is admired by gods of the cosmos. We should especially treasure and support each other. It's what cultivators should do.
