(Minghui.org) The Dafa Association published a notice called “Strengthen Sending Righteous Thoughts” on July 27. During our local Fa study, I proposed to send forth righteous thoughts for a longer period of time after Fa study.

I had the attachments of changing other practitioners' minds when I proposed the idea. I hoped that more practitioners would join this effort. It turned out that the practitioners were all busy and only one person stayed behind with me.

On the first day, my mind was not very peaceful. On the second day, I was able to concentrate without any interfering thoughts. I felt that I was surrounded by energy, and did not want to end it. These were the best righteous thoughts I sent.

At the same time, my xinxing made a huge breakthrough and my mind became more open.

I have been doing the extended righteous thoughts for two months now. It was rare for me to be able to concentrate before; now it is rare for me to be unable to concentrate.

At the beginning of doing this, I added the thoughts of supporting the local media to my righteous thoughts, and then the added thoughts gradually extended to the persecution in China, organ harvesting, and Shen Yun shows.

Later, I no longer added any thoughts since sending forth righteous thoughts itself covers everything. This elevation was made through a combination of principles and actions.

Once a practitioner shared her family troubles with me. I did not know what to say since there were many factors behind it. But I knew that sending forth righteous thoughts would help to eliminate the interference in her family. I told her that I would add her family in my righteous thoughts every day.

I did it for some time and did not know how much my righteous thoughts helped, since I had not seen her for a while. But one day, another practitioner told me that this practitioner's home environment had improved a lot. She said that it was thanks to practitioners' righteous thoughts. I realized that Master was encouraging me with the news and became determined to do better.

Master told us in his lecture of Fa Teaching at the 2015 West Coast Fa Conference:

“The old forces wouldn’t venture to directly persecute Dafa disciples at present—none of the larger beings that assume a form would venture to do that. Then what sorts of things are doing that now? Things like worms, bugs, bacteria, and all kinds of foul things like that. Sending righteous thoughts is extremely effective in these cases! They are annihilated in large batches. But there are a lot of them, given how big this cosmos is; and the cosmos consists of many layers. So after you have wiped these things out, shortly after, before long, they might infiltrate again, and you need to eliminate them again. So you need to keep sending righteous thoughts like this, and persist with it for some time, before you will see obvious results. Don’t lose confidence just because, after feeling good following a while of sending righteous thoughts, things don’t seem to go well again. I can tell you that they are using this approach to wear you down—to whittle away at your strong sense of conviction. So you need to be alert to these things.”

I regret that I didn’t realize the importance of strengthening sending forth righteous thoughts despite the above warning from Master, but I was grateful that the Dafa Association published the reminder that helped me get back on track.
