Sending Forth Righteous Thoughts Brings Miraculous Results
(Minghui.org) Some miraculous things have happened to me since I started my cultivation of Dafa during Fa-rectification.
Changes in the Celestial Phenomena and Dafa's Healing Power
One day in August 2001, I went to a factory in my hometown to clarify the truth about the persecution of Falun Dafa to some of my relatives and others there. It was nighttime when my sister-in-law picked me up to take me to their home. When we were near her home, it became very dark as clouds gathered in the sky. I felt it was not right and said to my sister-in-law, “It is very evil where you live.” (She told me there were police officers in plainclothes and spies, who frequently arrested people; and for me to be very careful there. A few days ago, a Falun Dafa practitioner was arrested there.)
My sister-in-law hadn’t yet started cultivation and didn’t quite understand what I meant. So she said, “Maybe it is going to rain. It is not easy to walk in the dark. You are not familiar with the road and may easily fall. Stay here. I will go upstairs to get a flashlight and an umbrella for you to walk.”
After she left, I started sending forth righteous thoughts while holding one palm erect.
A few minutes later, she came back. I opened my eyes and was surprised to see there was light shining all around. I looked up at the sky and was really amazed. The dark clouds had disappeared and small colorful halos surrounded the moon. It looked magnificent. I looked further and saw there was a second, larger halo around the moon. I said to my sister-in-law, “It was dark a moment ago, and you said it would rain. When you walked upstairs, I sent forth righteous thoughts. Within a few minutes, there was a huge change.” She agreed, “What a miracle!”
Then she called her husband to come down. She showed him the moon and told him what happened. He looked at the moon and halos and said repeatedly, “A miracle! A miracle! I am in my 60s, and I have never seen this.”
We talked while we continued to look at the moon. Then my sister-in-law and I went upstairs to sleep, but he stayed there looking at the sky, relaxing in the cool air.
The next day, I asked him how long he had been looking at the sky. He said he stayed outside till 1 a.m. He said to me, while pressing his hands together in front of his chest, “Dafa is miraculous. It will be great if Master can help me recover from my diabetes and pulmonary heart disease.”
With his simply saying this sentence, his severe diseases disappeared. And he started reading Zhuan Falun. Despite this, he couldn’t get rid of his bad habits, such as smoking and drinking. Moreover, there wasn't a cultivation environment near his home, so he couldn’t continue to practice. However, his life was extended for over 10 years.
After this experience, I understood the miraculous power of sending forth righteous thoughts. Thus, I know how important it is to send forth righteous thoughts.
Sending Forth Righteous Thoughts Twice to Dissolve Evil Behind Persecution
Instead of going home after work on November 1, 2001, I read Zhuan Falun in the office. After it became dark, I distributed some truth-clarifying materials. I was reported and arrested after I had distributed half of the materials. I was taken to a police station and confined there for seven days, and was then taken to a detention center for a month.
During that time, they listed my so-called crimes and fabricated the required evidence against me. They planned to sentence me to one and a half years of forced labor. While I was detained, I continued to do the exercises, clarify the truth, and send forth strong righteous thoughts towards the Political and Legal Affairs Committee, the 610 Office, and the police department to completely dissolve all the evil lives and factors behind them, so they won’t commit wrongdoing towards Dafa.
When I started sending forth righteous thoughts, I saw with my celestial eye that the place where our county police department was located was surrounded by a mass of black matter. One week later, it became grey. And later it returned to a normal color.
On the 25th day, I saw there was a shining light on top of the police department and realized the evil factors had been dissolved. After my breakfast on the 26th day, I planned to leave the detention center, but the gate was closed. I sat down and continued to send forth strong righteous thoughts. At 8 a.m. on the 27th day, the director of the detention center told me to pack my personal items and leave.
The second time I was arrested was in June 2014, when I delivered some truth-clarification materials to my hometown. The next morning the police put me in a vehicle and said they were taking me to have a physical exam. However, I immediately knew that they planned to send me to a “brainwashing class” in the capital city. At that time, the evil wanted to force 100% of Falun Dafa practitioners to give up their spiritual practice within three years. The director and coordinators of our Falun Dafa assistance center were previously arrested and had been tortured there in that class for almost two months. This time they wanted to take me there.
At first, I asked Master to strengthen me and save me. Then I thought about clarifying the truth and saving these people who arrested me. Master said,
“Clarifying the truth is the master key.” (“Teaching the Fa at the 2003 Atlanta Fa Conference,” Collected Fa Teachings, Vol. IV).
I told them some facts about the persecution of Falun Dafa, but they didn’t listen. They didn’t allow me to talk. Then I started to send forth righteous thoughts to disintegrate all the dark minions and rotten demons, destroy all elements of the Communist evil specter and all evil factors of the Chinese Communist Party, and dissolve all arrangements by the old forces. I wouldn’t acknowledge the persecution, nor would I collaborate with orders from the evil. I would firmly walk on the path Master arranged for me.
I kept on sending forth righteous thoughts in this way. Because they were waiting for the director of the 610 Office, we didn’t arrive at the provincial brainwashing center till 1 p.m.. I then sent righteous thoughts towards that dark den of the evil to completely eliminate the evil factors there.
When I entered, they checked my blood pressure, and I asked Master to help. I had a thought that my blood pressure would be 180 mm Hg, and it showed 180 mm Hg. They wanted to check my blood pressure again one hour later. I hadn’t taken a break, and continued to send forth righteous thoughts. In less than an hour, I went outside but was dragged back to check my blood pressure again. I had a thought that my blood pressure should be 220 mm Hg, and it showed 220 mm Hg. So, they asked the police officers and other agents to take me away. They wouldn’t accept me into the center. I thought it was because the evil in other dimensions couldn’t tolerate it anymore.
After I returned home, I met with a fellow practitioner who told me they had just heard from my wife that I was taken to the brainwashing center. She was about to notify the other practitioners to send forth righteous thoughts for me. She didn’t expect that I would return home so quickly. I reminded her that Master said,
“When disciples have ample righteous thoughtsMaster has the power to turn back the tide” (“The Master-Disciple Bond,” Hong Yin Vol. II).
It was all due to Master’s strengthening. For a long time after that, we didn't hear anything about persecution at the brainwashing center. Someone said it was terminated, while others said it was moved to another location.
Sending Forth Righteous Thoughts Together to Rescue Practitioners
There is a young male practitioner who is capable of installing software and fixing equipment. He works hard and is very responsible. We frequently ask him to help maintain all of our informational material production sites. However, one day we heard that his home was ransacked and he was arrested. Reportedly, over 10 computers and printers were ransacked as well as his own vehicle.
I went to five Fa-study groups nearby to notify practitioners to send forth righteous thoughts to rescue him. We all worked together as one body, and on the 12th day, he left the dark den. He said that he hadn't eaten or drank anything since he was arrested. He kept on sending forth righteous thoughts. And he could feel the righteous thoughts from the fellow practitioners outside. He said that they were very powerful. Although he went on a hunger strike, he didn’t feel hungry, nor did he feel lonely. Therefore, within a short period of time, the persecution was dissolved. A situation like his could have easily led to five or even 10-plus years of prison.
One day in 2013, Falun Dafa practitioners were tried in Wuchang Middle Court. A fellow practitioner went there to send forth righteous thoughts, but didn’t return home. Nothing was heard from her for a few days. Some practitioners were worried that she might have been arrested. No one knew where she was.
In addition to sending forth righteous thoughts for her, we went to various places to look for her, including police stations, detention centers, labor camps, and brainwashing centers. We hadn’t heard anything from her for two months. Then I suggested to some coordinators that since we couldn’t find her, we shouldn't try to look for her anymore; instead, let’s send forth righteous thoughts for her together and use our supernatural power to bring her home.
So all practitioners in the Fa study groups sent strong righteous thoughts for three days to dissolve all evil factors to release her. On the third afternoon, she called saying that she had returned that morning. While practitioners were still sending forth righteous thoughts, we looked at each other with surprise. It was a miracle. We couldn’t find her for over two months. Yet, when we started sending forth righteous thoughts for her, she returned within two days.
These two experiences show the strong power of sending forth righteous thoughts as a group.
Sending Forth Righteous Thoughts to Create an Environment to Save Sentient Beings
Master has told us,
“I said: what is a Buddha? "Tathagata" is what human beings call someone who’s come with the truth and the power to do what he wants, whereas real Buddhas are guardians of the cosmos and are responsible for all righteous elements in the cosmos.” (“Teaching the Fa at the Western U.S. Fa Conference,” Guiding the Voyage)
I moved to a new community in 2008. When I first entered the gate, I saw there was an evil red banner slandering Falun Dafa. I thought we shouldn’t allow it to poison sentient beings. After I sent forth righteous thoughts twice, it started raining on the second night. I held an umbrella and used a pair of scissors to cut the banner down.
A few days later, I went out to distribute truth-clarification materials. While I was putting a copy into a mailbox, a guard came and asked me what I was doing. I said I was distributing mail. He then asked me what was inside in my bag. I said it was my clothes (as it was covered by a piece of cloth). While I was walking, I sent forth righteous thoughts to not allow him to search my bag. He didn’t search it, but he followed me to another unit. When I went to get on the elevator, he continued to follow me. I had a thought to freeze him and not allow him to enter the elevator. He looked astonished and didn’t move. I went to the top of the building and moved over to another unit to distribute the rest of the materials, and then returned home.
After I returned, I sat down and sent forth righteous thoughts to prevent the guard from seeing me again. I asked Master to move him to another area. Afterward, I didn’t see him any more. I asked another guard, who told me that he had been moved to another community.
Later, I thought that since I live in this area, I should be playing the main role. All of these sentient beings are to be saved by Dafa. It is not allowed for the evil to poison sentient beings. No persecution is allowed in this area. I maintained this thought. Sometimes, I also used wind, rain, thunder, and lighting to eliminate the evil factors throughout the area. Since I started to send forth righteous thoughts in this way, there have been no banners, boards, or flyers to slander Dafa; and there has been no incidence of reporting and arresting Falun Gong practitioners who clarified the truth or distributed materials. Other practitioners said, “It is very safe to distribute truth-clarifying materials. There is no interference.”
I moved to another residential compound in 2017 because my wife needed to pick up our grandson. This compound is very small with only 300 families. The management there is very strict. All the leaders of the local 610 Office and the neighborhood committee live there. Thus, the environment was very evil, and no one went there to distribute truth clarifying materials.
When I moved in, I saw that Chinese Communist Party (CCP) flags were hung on trees everywhere, and materials that slandered Dafa were posted in all the elevators. I destroyed all the defamatory materials and sent forth righteous thoughts toward the flags. I also brought some fellow practitioners over to distribute truth-clarification materials. Two practitioners and I returned home after we finished, but the other two practitioners were arrested when they were distributing materials. They, however, had strong righteous thoughts and were released the same day.
A fellow practitioner told me later that the compound I lived in was quite evil and all the guards and cleaning staff were vicious. He asked me to pay attention to my safety.
One day, while I was putting up some non-stick truth clarifying posters, a guard saw me. They arranged to have someone monitor me all the time. Under this pressure, I went back to my hometown for a while. During that time, I sent forth strong righteous thoughts to completely dissolve the evil factors so that all sentient beings there could be saved.
Over the past two years, I continued sending forth righteous thoughts. There has been a big improvement in our compound. There are no more posters or other materials that slander Dafa. Since the Chinese New Year, no CCP flags have been hung there. The security guards opened the door for me and reserved a parking space for me. The property management director also spoke politely to me. I believe it is because I sent forth righteous thoughts to eliminate the evil factors there. Their knowing side in another dimension that is clear about Dafa is grateful.
During the pandemic of the CCP virus, this area was heavily hit. In almost every compound, over 10 people were infected, except for our compound, which had no cases of infection. I realized that as long as there is no evil controlling sentient beings, they won’t commit wrongdoing towards Dafa, and the CCP virus won’t infect them. Only when all of these sentient beings have the opportunity to be saved by Dafa, can we fulfill our mission.
“With righteous thoughts and righteous actionsHe is diligent without letting upEliminating demons that damage the FaHe is good to all beings” (“A Righteous God,” Hong Yin Vol. II, Translation Version A).
Based on the Fa, I pay particular attention to sending forth righteous thoughts. I send forth righteous thoughts eight times a day, each time for 20 minutes. I also sent forth righteous thoughts for my family members, which helped them change their attitudes. They previously opposed my cultivation, and even did wrong things. Now, they agree to recite, “Falun Dafa is good.” I also send forth righteous thoughts for government agents, so they will not commit wrong doing towards Dafa; they can then have an opportunity to be saved. I send forth righteous thoughts for sentient beings as well, so that they and their family can have a good future.
“He comes with Truth that gives him free reignAnd travels the four seas with a free and easy spiritThe Fa’s principles spread throughout the worldHis Fa Boat sets sail, loaded full with sentient beings” (“Tathagata,” Hong Yin Vol. II, Translation Version A).
Now that there is no interference from my family, I can do the three things calmly. I distribute truth-clarification materials wherever I go, including the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party, brochures, desktop calendars, wall calendars, software to break through China’s great firewall, etc. Wherever I go, I use paper money with truth clarification messages on them, and I tell people the facts about the persecution. People have listened to the truth and believe “Falun Dafa is good” and have quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations.
These miracles I experienced when sending forth righteous thoughts are a reflection of the mighty power of Dafa. I wanted to share this so that more fellow practitioners can realize the importance of sending forth righteous thoughts. Let us all send forth strong righteous thoughts at this critical moment of the Fa rectification period.
