(Minghui.org) I had a realization after reading a practitioner’s experience sharing article. When the police tortured him and he felt he could not bear it anymore, he shouted out, “Master!” The police were startled and stopped torturing him.

I realized that calling out to Master Li, the founder of Falun Dafa, at the critical moment reflects one’s cultivation and realm, because it requires breaking through at least three levels of barriers.

One barrier to overcome is everyday people’s notions and atheism. We must be able to realize that this is not a persecution by man against man but factors in other dimensions who use people to persecute us. This is already a manifestation of righteous thoughts and enlightenment.

Second, to know that Master is by our side and to ask for Master’s help in our mind is a further step of righteous enlightenment. Once I had a toothache on the train, and I couldn’t stand it anymore, so I asked Master for help in my heart. In a short while I felt the tooth click and the pain stopped instantly. I was surprised and happy. Thank you, Master.

Third, to call out for Master’s help requires breaking through mentalities such as “embarrassment,” “is it useful,” “don’t let ordinary people misunderstand,” and so on. Now I’ve realized that

“...Achieving these is cultivation”(“Solid Cultivation,” Hong Yin)

Why can some practitioners do it? It is a manifestation of their righteous faith. Without a pure thought, one can’t break through the notion of “is it useful” etc. to shout out. Isn’t this cultivation? Without having reached a certain level and realm, one simply can’t do it, because this is not a theory or just talking about it.

In addition, I also realized that at critical moments our thoughts are very important. What you think may become reality. For example, facing the illness persecution by the old forces, if you think it is a false appearance, it is a false appearance, if you think it is illness, it may become a real tribulation. If at the critical moment we have that one thought that is very pure and in accordance with the Fa, perhaps a miracle will happen.

For example, during the pandemic, some neighborhoods were closed and there were guards at the entrances. Some practitioners said that we were carrying out a divine mission and doing the most righteous thing—clarifying the truth to people—so they were able to go in and out freely and the guards could not really stop them. Of course, the manifestations might be different: Some guards turned a blind eye, some turned their heads to look elsewhere when the practitioners passed by, and so on.

Isn’t everything that exists in human society made up of molecules? In another dimension, our human society is a heap of molecules. The whole universe is under Master’s control, and under Master’s immense power, the molecular piles of our human society are nothing. I realized that, from a higher level, the so-called reality that seems to be real in human society is a false appearance. When we truly have a strong righteous thought, with the blessing of omnipotent Master, can our righteous thoughts manifest miracles? At that moment, aren’t divine beings among men and we really become divine?
