[PureInsight.org] Starting on May 8, 2002, Dafa disciples around the world have been sending forth righteous thoughts every 6 hours on the hour (6AM, 12noon, 6PM, 12 midnight Beijing time). Also, practitioners have persevered in sending righteous thoughts at the global times of 5, 6, and 7AM, Sunday, Beijing time. In addition, there have been local and global activities of intensive sending forth of righteous thoughts.
I have noticed a problem and I would like to bring it up here. Namely, due to various types of interference, some obvious and some less-than-obvious, practitioners have intentionally and unintentionally missed the global times. I think this is very serious, and something that, as a whole body of Dafa particles, we should break through immediately.
I have experienced fatigue and laziness preventing me from awaking and have missed many times in this way. At other times I was pursuing my attachments and chose to not participate at the set times. Sometimes I was not aware of the time and simply missed it. In other situations, like work or family dinners, where I could have nonetheless focused my thoughts with eyes open, instead, my righteous mind was not clear enough and I was distracted by the maze. There are many other types of examples, and I think we, as individuals and also via discussion in our practice groups, should all root them out and no longer allow them to play an interfering role.
With regards to sending righteous thoughts, Teacher told us that, "When we get together for group practice, think about eliminating the evil in the Three Realms, while holding one hand vertically (li-zhang) in front of the chest, and just think with True Thoughts for five minutes--this should do it" (Teaching the Fa at the 2001 Canada Fa Conference). And also, in the Fa-Lecture at the Conference in Florida, U.S.A. , Teacher said, "So this is something extremely critical, extremely important. Then if every student is able to do that, I can tell you, with five minutes of sending forth righteous thoughts together, the evil in the Three Realms will never exist again--that's how important this is."
A question came to mind: how could this happen if, at any given moment of global sending righteous thoughts together, a significant number of practitioners are not participating? On the other hand, if at every time all practitioners are aware of the moment, and participating to the maximum extent given whatever individual circumstances they find themselves in, where could the evil hide? I think that if we can help each other break through this, the evil old forces' days are truly numbered.
Teacher recently told us in his New Year greetings that "On the rest of the journey, may you fulfill, with godlike righteous thoughts and righteous actions, the grand vows you made before history!" I think that participating in each and every set global time during the Fa-rectification period is one of my vows, and I will strive to accomplish them from here on out.
This is merely my personal understanding from a certain perspective, focusing on one aspect of what Dafa disciples' should do at present. Certainly, studying the Fa and clarifying the truth are no less important in breaking through all the old arrangements.
