(Minghui.org) The desire to read online news has troubled me for years. I knew I wasted a lot of time doing it, when I should have been doing the three things, but I just couldn't control myself.

As time passed, I developed the desire to watch movies online. I attempted to get rid of both desires by using ordinary people's methods, but they didn't have a lasting effect in the long term.

One day, I enlightened that these desires are substances in other dimensions, so I should be able to eliminate them by sending forth righteous thoughts.

When I sent righteous thoughts that night, I added one thought to completely eliminate all attachments related to the desires of news and movies.

The next morning, I woke up a new person. The desire for news and movies was completely gone.

Two weeks have passed since then. I still don't have any desire to read the news or watch movies.

I think sending forth righteous thoughts can help practitioners in similar situations. However, a practitioner facing this issue may not realize the effectiveness of righteous thoughts. For me, it took me a few years to remember to send righteous thoughts.

The time left for us is very limited and very precious. I hope that my experience may help fellow practitioners overcome their attachments faster.
