Let Our Divine Sides Be Resurrected
(Clearwisdom.net) When can our divine sides be resurrected if we are being confused by things in society and bound by human principles? Teacher has pushed many disciples to their highest potential ahead of time. He has also given us god-like powers and granted us the privilege of using the verbal formula:
"fah jung chyen kwuhn, shyeh uh! chwen myeh; fah jung tyen dee, shyen shrr shyen baow" ("The Two Hand Positions for Sending Forth Righteous Thoughts," from Essentials for Further Advancement II)
These words mean that the Fa is rectifying the universe and the world. This Fa carries Teacher's immeasurable power and Dafa's almighty capabilities. This is all we need to meet the requirements of Fa-rectification and saving sentient beings.
We are all equipped with the powers of divine beings, so why haven't we taken any action? Teacher called upon us:
"Today is Easter, the day of a god's resurrection! (Enthusiastic applause) This is all I'll say today. On this special, glorious day, may Dafa disciples' divine sides also be resurrected!" ("Teaching the Fa on Easter, 2004, at the New York Fa Conference")
Teacher's call strongly shook us. Teacher told us:
"When human thinking gains the upper hand, that person heads toward humanness; when divine thinking and a person's righteous thoughts gain the upper hand, he heads toward godhood." ("Teaching the Fa in San Francisco, 2005")
Why have our divine sides not been resurrected?
Some say, "I am doing fine sending forth righteous thoughts or distributing fliers at home. But when I encounter any serious matters, I always forget my righteous thoughts and actions." From the Fa we know that we should use our power, but when tribulations come, not too many of us have been able to use that power.
One reason so many people are unable to think of using that power when facing evil is that their Fa-study is not thorough, and the other reason is that human notions have created an isolated environment.
"Dafa is harmonizing all sentient beings, and all sentient beings are also harmonizing Dafa." ("Expounding on the Fa" from Essentials for Further Advancement)
Teacher has pushed us to our highest positions, and it is up to us to take the initiative to assimilate and harmonize with the Fa at this level. If we don't do it, then we are mere mortals.
I am a divine being helping Teacher rectify the Fa.
"Matter and mind are one thing... As a practitioner, if you assimilate yourself to this characteristic you are one that has attained the Tao- it's just such a simple principle." (Zhuan Falun)
From the bottoms of our hearts, we must believe that we are divine beings. We must think, "Yes, I can. Yes, I can, I definitely can." When we reinforce our mindsets repeatedly, we are transcending being human repeatedly. The part that we believe is divine will be assimilated with the Fa, and the part that is assimilated with the Fa is already divine. The attachment and human thoughts we had when we weren't assimilated with the Fa will disappear immediately. In the past, we may not have thought of ourselves as divine and thought that we didn't have power. We thought we were being modest, but in reality we were denying the power that we had cultivated. In other words, we didn't trust Teacher and Dafa.
"Actually, every Dafa disciple has abilities. It's just that the abilities do not manifest in the surface dimension, so they think that they don't have supernormal abilities. But regardless of whether they can manifest in the surface dimension or not, when a person's True Thoughts come forth they are very powerful." ("Dafa Disciples' Righteous Thoughts are Powerful," from Essentials for Further Advancement II)
We need to strongly believe in our own power and should not have a single trace of doubt. By maintaining our divine thoughts and utilizing our power, we are also inhibiting the persecution and stopping malicious beings from committing crimes against Dafa, which is also saving people.
