Negating the Old Forces’ Arrangements by Assimilating to the Fa
(Minghui.org) I started to practice Falun Dafa in 1996. During my cultivation, I experienced severe sickness karma tribulations, and I suffered from the persecution arranged by the old forces. The manifestations of these tribulations in this dimension appeared very dangerous and difficult. However, to righteous Dafa disciples, these tribulations are really just steps on the way home with Master Li (the founder).
When I was a young child, I knew that in the future the entirety of mankind would face a devastating catastrophe, and the most important thing would be how to get through it. After I started cultivating, I saw that prior to coming to this world, Master put a stamp on me in another dimension so I wouldn’t get lost on my way home. I am so thankful to Master for saving me.
Master has helped me into a state of gradual enlightenment several times. Each time it was more special and wonderful than the previous time; each time it took me less time in mediation to get into the other dimension. Eventually, it happened in an instant in this dimension. Together with other practitioners, I was able to help suppress the evil factors in other dimensions.
After my cultivation level passed beyond the three realms, with Master’s help I saw the great Milky Way, I returned to my previous paradise, and I visited the beautiful Falun Paradise. As I continued to break through levels, I saw a special dimension that was made of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. Later on, in the blink of an eye, Master moved me into the new universe, and I became part of the positive substance in the great Fa. Its magnificence is impossible to express in words.
During my cultivation, I saw that the best way to negate the factors of the old universe is to dissolve in the Fa and assimilate to the Fa. I enlightened that in cultivation one can indeed get through and negate these arrangements.
Once, I was on my way to visit an older practitioner, and I saw that there were demons next to him. I then looked more closely and saw that two practitioners who often spent time with the older practitioner were cultivating within the arrangements of the old forces and had not been able to break through the levels arranged by them. In past years, these practitioners were often harassed and persecuted. Even though they firmly got through the persecution each time, they were not able to enlighten in the Fa and did not truly understand how to improve in the Fa to thoroughly negate these arrangements. In this dimension, the manifestations include not paying attention to cell phone security, having a strong mentality of doing things, having strong sentimentality, and not being clear on the seriousness of cultivation, etc.
From my level, I saw that the old forces were on different levels, and each Dafa practitioner was arranged to go to different dimensions, based on his or her own situations, by the old forces. However, for practitioners who are very steady and firm, when they continue to cultivate higher and higher and eventually stabilize at a certain fruit status, they will be truly out of the arrangements by the old forces and can truly go to the new universe with Master.
From Master’s Fa, I enlightened that the great beings in the universe would not have a thought that is not compassionate. Dafa disciples all come from very high levels. However, in this human world, in order to be able to have each and every thought be pure and kind and in accordance with the Fa, one must pay close attention to his or her cultivation state at every moment, and constantly cultivate and look inside based on the Fa.
From Master’s Fa, we know that with kindness and compassion we can get through tribulations. I was once followed by the police, and they eventually found my home. They came and knocked on my door at 1:30 a.m. I asked who was there, and they said they were the police. I was studying the Fa at the time. With Master's help, I did not have any fear at all. Instead I was glad. I thought, “People who are destined to come have come, and now I can save them.”
I jumped off the bed, opened the door, and said, “I was going to find all of you if you didn’t come to me. Come in.” Three police officers came in, and they immediately said they admired my poise. In the end, we just chatted for a little over 10 minutes. They didn’t touch anything, and left politely. Afterward, I realized that when we achieve the standard of the Fa, then the beauty and supernormal aspects of the Fa will manifest.
“If upon encountering trying circumstances your thinking can be truly righteous, then, when faced with the evil's persecution and when faced with interference, just one sentence of yours fortified with steadfast righteous thoughts can instantly make the evil disintegrate (applause), and it will make those who are being used by the evil turn and flee, it will make the evil's persecution of you dissolve, and it will make the evil's interfering with you disappear without a trace. One thought born of righteous faith is all it takes. And whoever can hold firm that righteous thought and go the distance will become a magnificent god forged by Dafa.” (“Teaching the Fa at the Western U.S. International Fa Conference”, Collected Fa Teachings, Vol. VII)
I was once helping to rescue a fellow practitioner from a brainwashing center. The guards there figured that I was a Dafa practitioner, and a dozen people surrounded me. A lead person of the local 610 Office asked me, “Is Falun Dafa good or evil?”
With Master’s help, I instantly went into a meditative state, and I suddenly looked at him and said, “You tell me, is Falun Dafa good or bad?” He was stunned and overwhelmed. He murmured, “Isn’t it good?” He then squatted on the ground. I said to him, “I know whether Falun Dafa is good or bad. But I won’t tell you.”
Another person there wanted to hit me, saying I was threatening them. Then the lead person suddenly stood up and yelled at that person, “Nonsense! He did not threaten us!” Another person opened the gate and said to me, “Hurry up and leave.” So I calmly walked out. Thank you Master for helping me get through another tribulation.
During these many years of cultivation I have realized that as a Dafa practitioner, there is no such thing as “a large tribulation.” The reason is that the Fa is so immense, thus no matter how large the tribulation, as long as we cultivate in the Fa with a righteous mind, it can be easily resolved.
Many practitioners have felt that Fa-rectification is rapidly moving forward, and as it moves toward the most superficial part, there can be different kinds of interference. It is indeed time for us to eliminate all human notions. We need to cultivate diligently, not develop any new attachments, and return to our true homes with Master.
