The Power of Righteous Thoughts
(Minghui.org) Inspired by a fellow practitioner, I decided to write a cultivation experience sharing article. I realized that I used to have a human mindset, thinking everything I did was just ordinary and never very extraordinary. In other words, I thought that only when I did something extraordinary should I write about it. This notion obstructed me. If I think I have done something extraordinary, am I claiming heaven’s accomplishments as my own? Everything is done by our compassionate Master, as long as we have the wish and righteous thoughts.
I’d like to share a few amazing stories that I experienced in my cultivation with Master’s encouragement, as well as my righteous thoughts.
Brainwashing classes were held all over the country after the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) launched the persecution against Falun Dafa in July 1999. One day, the supervisor at my workplace called to inform me that I had to go meet with the upper management. I said firmly, “I will go if it is for a work-related matter. If not, I will not go for a personal matter.” They never sent me to the brainwashing center.
The CCP once organized a training session for its Party members, which involved transferring the Party membership from any former workplace to the current workplace. I thought, “I don’t want that. They will fail to transfer mine.” Thanks to my firm righteous thought, my Party membership didn’t get transferred. All other coworkers’ memberships were transferred. Since then, I have been disengaged from the Party.
Later on, the upper management requested to talk with me several times. I thought, “What they want has nothing to do with me.” In the end, nothing happened.
Once I found a poster of the CCP propaganda against Falun Dafa on the community bulletin board. It was at a high-traffic location. I wanted to take it down. At first, I thought I would wait until night. On second thought, I realized that so many people could be deceived by it in one day. Waiting was human thinking. Practitioners can eliminate evil at any time. I told myself, “I have the extraordinary power given by Master Li (Dafa's founder) and I am invisible. The bad people can’t see me.”
With righteous thoughts in my mind, I stood by the busy sidewalk and took the poster down.
Recently when I took the bus, a security check was required for everyone getting off. I thought, “It has nothing to do with me. I’m a Falun Dafa practitioner.” The passengers in front of me all opened their bags for the security check. I just walked past the security as if they didn’t see me. As I looked back, the passengers behind me still had to be checked one by one.
There have been many other miraculous stories like these during the past two decades of cultivation. Practitioners are indeed protected by Master and Dafa!
