(Minghui.org) Through my celestial eye, I saw that a black pole runs through the bodies of practitioners who have an attachment to lust.

This black pole is massive and extends throughout the entire cosmos that corresponds to such a practitioner. The sentient beings in their cosmos can see it as a huge pillar in the center of their cosmos, but it's so extensive that they cannot see where it begins or ends. They also cannot get rid of it.

Because the old forces are using this mechanism to destroy the cosmos that belongs to the practitioner, they cause them to be unable to rid themselves of the attachment to lust.

Realizing That We Have an Attachment To Lust

Many practitioners still haven't gotten rid of lust. Even though some say they do not have sexual desire, they cannot pass the test even in their dreams. If a practitioner is still attached to lust and does not eliminate it, his cultivation may fail.

A practitioner named Mary (alias) felt constant pain in the back of her head. She could neither sit up straight nor relax. She felt that negative factors in another dimension were interfering with her.

She started to send righteous thoughts. During the first hour, the pain did not lessen.

Mary realized that the negative substances came from her notion that she could divorce her husband if he mistreated her. She was shocked: she had never thought about divorcing her husband, but she realized that subconsciously she had.

She decided to eliminate this notion, and after an hour the pain began to lessen. As she continued to send righteous thoughts, she noticed similar black substances that were images of prostitutes and criminals. She understood that these images came from viewing everyday people's websites, newspapers and TV.

Master taught us,

“People may say that it doesn’t matter what they see with their eyes, and that they can just stop looking at something if they no longer want to see it. But that’s not true. When your vision makes contact with something, that thing has entered. That’s because any thing can replicate itself in other dimensions, so the longer you look at something, the more it enters.” (“Fa Teaching Given at the 2010 New York Fa Conference” in Collected Fa Teachings, Vol. XI)

We should avoid browsing everyday people's websites. If a practitioner watches TV or browses ordinary websites, the negative substances may enter his field, and he may have tribulations later. The old forces can also use it to persecute the practitioner.

After Mary eliminated one layer of these negative substances, another thick layer surfaced, which caused her to have strong sexual desire. As this substance spread over her body, an image of a male practitioner named Kevin (alias) appeared.

Mary suddenly recalled a dream she had a few days before. In the dream, Kevin expressed his love to her, but she turned him down. When she woke up, she felt very strange because they had no such relationship.

After she saw the image of Kevin, she understood that this was an arrangement of the old forces. She refused to go along with it and eliminated any attachments related to it.

After sending righteous thoughts for an hour and a half, she stopped and went to Fa-study. While she studied the Fa, Mary saw that the lust substances in her body were a small part of the huge black pillar arranged by the old forces.

How Lust Can Manifest

I've also noticed that the fundamental cause of many troubles and persecution practitioners go through is lust. This persecution can manifest as conflicts between husband and wife, a hard life with very limited income, being scammed out of money, falling into the trap of digital currency investments, or being abducted and incarcerated by the police.

Some practitioners were even “transformed” but later expressed their regret on Minghui.org. Some did this several times. Others were persecuted to death. Some developed wrong thoughts or were misled by those with wrong enlightenment.

Master said,

“The degree to which a person has sexual desire or interest has traditionally been, and still is, in higher dimensions, a critical factor in gauging whether he or she has what it takes for spiritual practice... Any time you experience disruptions of any sort, you should proactively think about what caused them and what you still need to let go.” (“The Sixth Talk” in Zhuan Falun)

Although some practitioners want to eliminate this attachment, they don't know how or aren't able to identify it when it manifests in their daily lives. The old forces have carefully hidden lust in the most minuscule levels in each of our dimensions. It's not easy to find, and it's difficult to get rid of. The old forces then use it as an excuse to persecute those practitioners who are attached to lust.

I enlightened that if one still hasn't been able to pass this test, he must pay attention to this issue. It's helpful to read the teachings in which Master addresses this issue. When we read them, the hidden attachment of lust may surface, and we will be able to recognize and eliminate it.

We also need to send righteous thoughts to eliminate lust. This is very important. It's also important to refuse to go along with the old forces' arrangements. When Master sees our steadfast determination to get rid of lust, he will remove these substances for us.

Through my celestial eye, I have seen that there is a Falun and Master's Fashen behind every word in the Dafa books. As I read each word, the bad substances in my body are eliminated.

I've also noticed that as I read each word I'm uplifted by one realm. The Fa is so powerful that each word corresponds to one realm. Thus, it's very important to study the Fa.
