[PureInsight.org] I witnessed the strength of righteous thoughts after overcoming the same sickness karma three times in three years.
In mid-May of 2013, my left eye darkened, and I couldn’t see anything. Meanwhile, my eye sockets hurt, I felt dizziness in half my head and my gait was off. At the time I was confused and didn’t know the reason. Later I realized it was external interference due to my weak master consciousness. So I recited the section in Zhuan Falun "Your Master Consciousness Needs to be Strong” and sent forth righteous thoughts continuously: “The Fa rectifies the Cosmos, the Evil is completely eliminated” and “The Fa rectifies Heaven and Earth, immediate retribution in this lifetime”. However, it was not that effective. Then I sent forth righteous thoughts continuously for half a day. The darkness disappeared, and I no longer felt pain or dizziness. After seeing the power of righteous thoughts, my faith in Master and the Fa grew.
In mid-May of 2014, the same sickness karma came back again. I recovered after a few days of sending forth righteous thoughts as I had in the past.
In mid-May this year, the same sickness karma appeared again. I thought: Why always May? What is the predestined relationship between me and this karma? Why does it treat me like this? It was also more serious this time. I felt very dizzy and unclear; my left eye couldn’t see anything, and I had severe eye socket pain. I was a little scared, but then I remembered the Fa: "looking inward" (Teaching the Fa at the Conference III: “Teaching and Explaining the Fa at the Metropolitan New York Fa Conference”).
I calmed down to seek inwards. Honestly, I didn’t even need to look deeply because many attachments were clearly present at the surface including hatred, attachment to self-interest, attachment to reputation, jealousy, attachment to family, etc. On the surface, it seemed like I had eliminated these attachments, but they existed in my heart for over ten years. Was I truly cultivating? Wasn’t it dangerous? I decided to get rid of these attachments. Meanwhile, I thought to the karma, “No matter what relationship we have and even if my cultivation has shortcomings, you are not allowed to persecute me because I am a disciple of the Lord of Buddhas. I am assisting Master with the Fa-rectification and saving the people. Persecuting me is equivalent to persecuting Fa-rectification and interfering with saving sentient beings. I will definitely get rid of you.” I pleaded to Master and the Fa-rectification gods’ for reinforcement. After ten days of sending forth righteous thoughts nonstop, I could see again. This was truly a manifestation of “When disciples have ample righteous thoughts, Master has the power to turn back the tide” (Hong Yin, Vol. II: “The Master-disciple Bond”).
Fellow practitioners, no matter how great or harsh the ordeals are, as long as we have righteous thoughts and truly believe in Master and the Fa, there is no test that we can’t pass!
Thank you, Master!
