My Understanding of “Good or Evil Comes from That Instant Thought”
(Minghui.org) Master said,
“We have said that good or bad comes from a person’s initial thought, and the thought at that moment can bring about different consequences. With her old age, if she were an everyday person, how could she not be injured? Yet her skin was not even scratched. Good or evil comes from that instant thought.” (Lecture Four, Zhuan Falun)
Whenever I studied this Fa principle, I reminded myself to think positively in any situation, so that I would be fine. I was once in a serious car accident, but with righteous thoughts, I was fine and not injured.
I recently had a new understanding of this principle. When a person’s first thought is that “something is wrong,” it is their human thinking, while “everything is fine” is their divine thought.
When people get in a car accident, they are able to eliminate their karma and pay off the debt from the wrongdoings they committed in their past lives. It is only natural for them to be afraid and think that they may have injured themselves.
However, when someone believes that they are fine, they have already elevated past the human state as their divine thought has emerged. Then, can anything really happen to that person with strong righteous thoughts and belief in Dafa?
Master said, “...matter and mind are one and the same.” (Lecture One, Zhuan Falun)
With positive and righteous thought, the power of Dafa will express itself, and we will not get hurt in an accident. When we encounter sickness karma, danger or other incidents, our understanding should be clear that “I am a God, nothing will happen to me!” This can only come from having a high-level understanding of the Fa.
