[PureInsight.org] In reality, the basis of the thinking we use to view our environment, and the basis of the thinking we use to measure everything we come across are very important. By finding the root of our thoughts, we will recognize whether we view everything based from a human standpoint or from within the Fa.
We suffer many tribulations because our heart is not pure and our mind is not righteous. Furthermore, there are still numerous attachments we cannot let go of. Master said that the thought we hold at a critical moment is very important. If one can have the thought of holding the Fa as the teacher as one goes through a test, the tribulation will be over. We will no longer be part of the maze, and we will have broken out of the maze. After we passed the test and the tribulation is over, we will find when looking back that the tribulation was nothing. Many so-called tribulations are formed by our attachments. Teacher said: "Additionally, they manipulate wicked human beings to examine Dafa and its disciples, putting them through a comprehensive and destructive test that targets all human thoughts and attachments. Had you truly been able to get rid of those fundamental human attachments in your cultivation, this last tribulation would not have been so vicious." (From "Towards Consummation," Essentials for Further Advancement II)
The basis of the thinking we use to view the problem is very important. Regardless of the time, place or situation, when considering the problems, if we can let go of our sense of self, and take the Fa as our sole teacher, then we will balance everything well. It is because Dafa is able to evidence its endless power for us only if we let go of our sense of self, truly melt into the Fa and have a firm belief in Dafa,
This magnificent Fa has the power to shake every single being in the cosmos. All beings will position themselves towards a future in the Fa. Dafa measures everything.
Dafa bestows on us endless righteous power. Dafa bestows on us enormous capability and great wisdom. We are beings created by the most magnificent Fa, we are indestructible, and we co-exist with the Fa. No force in this human world can disturb genuine Dafa disciples. No external factors and conditions exist that could weaken genuine Dafa disciples.
The old forces have no root. They are only the manifestation of the levels lower than a certain level in the colossal firmament during this Fa-rectification period. Through studying the Fa in more depth and recognizing the old forces' evil nature because of which they selfishly want to destroy all sentient beings, we will be able to validate the Fa at a higher level. But that is something easier said than done. To reach this realm, our every thought and every intention has to be governed by the Fa at all times. Once we act carelessly, we will be taken advantage of by the old forces.
When we understand the Fa from the basis of the Fa and have the correct basis of thinking, we will be able to stay on a direct path with no detours, step outside humanness, and have righteous beliefs and actions guided by the Fa.
One righteous thought from within the Fa that is without any omission will undoubtedly rectify all unrighteousness, change the entire macro and micro environment instantaneously, and create the future of the new universe.
