Sending Forth Righteous Thoughts Is Our Sacred Responsibility
(Minghui.org) Sending forth righteous thoughts is one of the three things that Master Li (the founder) asks us Falun Dafa practitioners to do. We all know how important it is. In the current battle between good and evil, the power of practitioners’ righteous thoughts is all the more prominent. If we don't do it well they won't be very effective. I would like to share my understanding.
I participated in a small group Fa-study. Before we began to read, we sent forth righteous thoughts. I noticed that many practitioners could not keep their palms upright or fell asleep. I thought: “What kind of sending forth righteous thoughts is this? Isn’t this losing one’s main consciousness?”
Master tells us,
“What those evil specter factors of the vile Party want is precisely to make you drowsy, and the drowsier you get, the more they reinforce that drowsiness. They just won't let you send righteous thoughts, because by doing so you are purging them. When you send forth righteous thoughts to destroy them, they interfere.” (Teaching the Fa in the City of Los Angeles)
Some practitioners diligently study the Fa and clarify the truth to people but they are complacent about sending righteous thoughts. Some don't even send righteous thoughts at the four global times. Others have never sent forth righteous thoughts at midnight. Some feel that with so many practitioners throughout the world it does not matter if they participate. If most practitioners think in this way, what will happen? Won’t it create a void within the body of practitioners? Won’t the old forces seize the opportunity to cause interference?
The Fa-rectification hasn't ended so every practitioner should ask themselves: “Am I fulfilling my role during Fa-rectification? Am I keeping up with the progress of Fa- rectification? Am I truly doing the three things that Master asked us to do?” If the answer is no, then we should hurry up and do better.
Some practitioners may excuse themselves, thinking that they've done their best but no one is perfect. That is not correct! Everyday people say that they've done their best but just could not do well. As practitioners, as long as we sincerely try our best, everything we do will be done well. Any negative thoughts we have are postnatally formed human notions. They do not come from our true selves. We must identify these thoughts and get rid of them. Only then will our sending forth righteous thoughts be true righteous thoughts and really have power.
If not, the substance we send out may just be a sticky matter which not only will not have a good effect, it may even have a negative impact.
I hope that we can all study the Fa well, strengthen our righteous thoughts, and really have the impact a Falun Dafa practitioner of the Fa-rectification period should have.
I send the following thoughts for one hour every night: “Eliminate the evil that is interfering with the U.S. election and is stopping people from being saved.” The more I send forth the righteous thoughts, the more I feel my realm getting clearer and brighter. The longer and more frequently I send forth righteous thoughts, the more I can feel Master’s empowerment.
I can feel my head being strengthened by a stream of energy, sending out limitless energy. I feel as long as we meet the standards of Fa-rectification and keep up with the phenomenal changes, we will naturally send out an enormous and powerful energy.
“Compassion is an enormous energy, the energy of righteous gods. The more compassion that is present, the greater this energy becomes, and it can disintegrate anything that is bad. ” (“Fa Teaching at the 2009 Washington DC International Fa Conference,” Collected Fa Teachings, Vol. IX)
I had a deeper understanding of Master's words. My understanding is that we are Dafa practitioners. The energy we send out is great. Everything that is not righteous can be eliminated under the effects of our righteous thoughts.
This is my understanding at my current level. Please correct me if I've said anything inappropriate.
