The Harm of Using Cell Phone Apps
(Minghui.org) Recently, a practitioner wrote in his sharing article, published on Minghui.org, that he dreamed a female skeleton with disheveled hair attempted to enter his body. Later, he enlightened that this female skeleton was a cell phone. I had a similar feeling after reading the article.
Earlier this year, due to the raging CCP virus, my heart was moved during the lockdown. I was not able to access the Internet outside of China at home, so I became anxious and started following the news on my cell phone every day. Although I knew that information on an ordinary people's website wasn't always true, I couldn't stop myself from watching it. Master gave me hints several times. For example, I felt a great pain in my right arm when I put my cell phone down and felt better after taking a nap. However, I started looking at news on the cell phone again within two days.
One day, at about three in the morning, I was half awake and half asleep, I heard what sounded like a cat crying near my headboard. My daughter slept with me at that time. I tried to coax the cat away to avoid waking her up. However, I found that the left side of my face was paralyzed, and I couldn't open my mouth to speak. I quickly got up to send righteous thoughts, but I couldn’t remember the words to say. I tried to recite Master’s lecture, but I could only say, “I am Master Li Hongzhi’s disciple.” I didn't know what to do.
Suddenly, I heard the voices of a lot of men, women, and children. A thought came to mind that those were voices from the cell phone. I was so scared and begged Master: “I will never use my phone again for anything but making calls.”
I tried my best to open my mouth and shout the only sentence I could remember: “I am Li Hongzhi’s disciple. I am Li Hongzhi’s disciple. I am Li Hongzhi’s disciple.” I opened my eyes and realized that it was all a dream. But it seemed real. The cell phone is really an evil thing and I decided to never watch the news on the cell phone again.
There was another incident. My aunt (an elderly Dafa practitioner), who had never messaged on a cell phone until recently when she was bored during the lockdown, asked her children to install WeChat on her phone. Other practitioners advised her to uninstall the app, but she didn't.
A few days later, when she was crossing a road on a tricycle, a car unexpectedly loomed in front of her. She quickly turned the handlebars to get out of the way, which caused the bike to lift. She tried to push the handlebars down but failed. It seemed that the tricycle was about to roll over. All a sudden, a force held the tricycle upright. She immediately realized that Master had saved her. She thanked Master. Looking inward, she realized that this might be a reminder to uninstall WeChat.
However, my aunt did not uninstall WeChat as soon as she returned home. Instead she used it again before uninstalling it. As a result, the music alarm didn’t sound when it was time to do the exercises. She took out the SD card and inserted it into another device, which displayed the words, “Right thoughts.” She quickly confessed to Master: “Master, I was wrong.” Then she uninstalled WeChat and the exercise music alarm sounded again.
As a young Dafa practitioner, I know how addictive the cell phone can be. I spent a long time and tried many ways to quit using it until I read the editorial article titled “What All Dafa Disciples Must Know,” on Minghui.org. I uninstalled WeChat and put down my cell phone. However, if I don't pay attention to this evil, the temptation will return.
Now I realize more than ever that the cell phone is really a demon that seduces people. I hope that fellow Dafa practitioners will take this as a warning and put down your cell phones. Do not give this devil a chance to live, and don’t let it block your way home.
