A Reminder to Fellow Practitioners: Don’t Wait to Send Forth Righteous Thoughts Until Interference Happens
(Minghui.org) A practitioner’s recent sharing helped me enlighten to why I couldn’t maintain a state of diligent cultivation long term. This coordinator reminded us that we should not wait to send forth righteous thoughts until we’re in the middle of a tribulation or are being interfered with.
Looking at myself, my quality of sending forth righteous thoughts was poor. I couldn’t enter tranquility and my mind was not clear. Even though I do it more than four times a day, it is done like a routine chore.
Fellow practitioners shared some good examples. One lady said, “It could be three to four minutes or 30 minutes. When I feel tired while studying the Fa, I send forth righteous thoughts. When I feel tired after sending righteous thoughts for a long time, I do the exercises or study the Fa.”
When she goes to bed, she concentrates on sending forth righteous thoughts without making the hand gestures. She sleeps well and wakes up feeling energetic. She is rarely interfered with while clarifying the truth.
In another story, a practitioner was hit by a car while clarifying the truth on the street and went into a coma. She was sent to the emergency room. Soon, several policemen arrived and waited in the hospital after someone tipped off the police after seeing a lot of truth-clarification fliers in her bag.
When a local coordinator heard about the incident, she and a fellow practitioner went to the hospital. One practitioner stayed outside to send forth righteous thoughts and she went into the emergency room. She spoke into the ear of the practitioner in the coma, “Wake up! We must leave now. You can’t stay here.”
The practitioner woke up from the coma and left the hospital with the other practitioner’s help. The policemen didn’t notice them when they walked out in front of them.
A practitioner shared a third story. He drives a three-wheeler to deliver orders and works long hours. He sends righteous thoughts while driving. At first he was often distracted by traffic noise. After a while he could enter a state where he could sense objects from all directions, and his mind is clear and focusing on sending righteous thoughts.
Sending forth righteous thoughts is an important weapon given to us by Master. Master said,
“Dafa disciples need to do three things well on their way to Consummation, right? And sending forth righteous thoughts is one of those things. If it's that important, why can't you do it well?! Why do you think of it as such a simple thing and not take it seriously? You do know how important it is. Besides, if you don't do one of the three things well, then what?”
“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”)
We should send forth righteous thoughts proactively instead of passively or after damage occurs.
I noticed many human notions in myself, so I began to eliminate them while sending righteous thoughts, and I sense that it is effective.
