Divinity or Humanity Is Determined by a Single Thought

A Dafa Disciple in China

PureInsight | April 26, 2013

[PureInsight.org] I started having serious sickness symptoms two days after the lunar Chinese New Year festival celebration. It seemed that I had caught a serious cold. Many of my colleagues in my work-unit were also showing the same symptoms. I recovered from my apparent sickness in just one day, whereas my colleagues spent days or even half a month dealing with the flu. They took flu shots and bought prescription drugs, yet it still took them much more time to recuperate from the illness.

Many fellow practitioners have been experiencing similar sickness karma tribulations. Some of them overcome such tribulations with their righteous thoughts, while others are stuck in the tribulations. I’d like to share with everyone my own experience here to show the miracular power of Falun Dafa, and the greatness and mercifulness of our honorable Master.

After the Chinese New Year holiday was over, I went back to work. The second day, I started having symptoms of a serious cold flu. I had a fever, and runny nose. I felt tired and dizzy. I realized that this was the result of my own laziness and complacency. I watched too much TV and slacked off on both Fa study and doing the exercises during the New Year holidays. The old forces must have taken advantage of this and started a new round of persecution on me. This apparent cold sickness interfered with my daily work. I couldn’t look at the computer screen. As soon as I started to read something on the computer monitor, my eyes would start watering and I had to go back home to take a rest. I kept wiping my nose and I wasted a whole roll of tissue paper cleaning my nose that day, and the skin around my nose became bruised.

I kept on studying the Fa and sending forth righteous thoughts throughout the evening. The next morning, I woke up early and joined the global Dafa practitioners’ exercise session. When I was doing the second standing stance exercise, I suddenly felt that my body lost its last bit of strength. I felt completely exhausted and my hands were shaking terribly. I felt as if an extremely heavy matter was crushing down on my head and I developed a nauseating sensation. Sweat started to trickle down my back. It was still very cold at that time of year in the northeast region where I live, yet my whole body was immediately covered in sweat. I found it difficult to stand and I really wanted to sit down to take a break.

As soon as I noticed this thought, I said to myself right away: “No, I will definitely finish the exercise! This is a false symptom and I am not afraid of it. No one is going to disrupt me practicing Falun Gong!” Several minutes passed, but I felt as if I had been standing there for a very long period of time. I opened my eyes to see which fellow practitioner was standing in front of me. However, I couldn’t see anything. My vision was blurred and everything appeared yellowish to me. I then started to send forth righteous thoughts in my mind: “I am a student of Li Hongzhi, the grand Lord of the universe. My Master has said: ‘My roots are all deeply planted in the universe, and if someone could affect you, he could affect me, and to put it directly, he’d be able to affect the universe.’ (Zhuan Falun, Lecture 1). I admit I have my own weaknesses and that I have many attachments. Nonetheless, I will correct myself along the path of cultivation in Falun Dafa. My Master is taking care of me, so no one is allowed to persecute me!” I continued to murmur: “I will kindly resolve all the predestined hatred and debt I owed to all those living beings in every dimension. I will dissolve all those evil elements that try to persecute me. Nothing will be left and everything is included. The Fa rectifies the universe and evil is destroyed completely!”

Right then, the heavy matter on top of my head started to move downwards, eventually reached my feet and dispersed into the ground. I felt completely relaxed as if nothing had happened. At that moment, tears filled my eyes. I understood that it was my determination and my faith in Master and in Falun Dafa that had helped dissolve the persecution carried out by the old forces. It was merciful Master who had witnessed my determination at that moment and helped remove the bad stuff from my body.

While reflecting over my cultivation, I find it impossible to have come this far had I not been protected by Master all along the way. I’ve stumbled so many times, and I’ve run into so many difficulties. Without the ever presence of merciful great Master along my side to help and protect me, I would have definitely failed in getting through. Every time I think of the mercy of our honorable Master and the tremendous sacrifices and sufferings that our Master has endured for the sake of all the sentient beings in the universe, I simply can’t help crying. It’s just impossible for me to use this shallow human language to describe what I feel deep in my heart. At the same time, what I feel in my heart is just one tiny bit of what the Master has done!

This particular sickness tribulation has strengthened my belief that as long as we have complete faith in the Fa and in Master at any critical moment during our cultivation, no tribulation is impossible to overcome. Also, the very first thought right at the critical moment is very important. We must remember we are Dafa practitioners and not ordinary people. The difference between divinity and humanity is really just determined by a single thought!

This is just a personal understanding. Fellow practitioners, please kindly point out anything inappropriate.
