[PureInsight.org] Dafa disciples know the importance of sending forth righteous thoughts (SFRT), which is one of three basic requirements. In the face of the current battle between good and evil throughout the U.S. presidential election, sending forth righteous thoughts has appeared to be particularly crucial. Therefore I would like to share my understanding.
I attended many Fa study groups. Normally we would SFRT before we started reading. I felt shocked to notice that most of them could not have their palms upright, while some practitioners fell sleepy. They seemed to have lost their main consciousness, which was definitely not SFRT.
Master taught us in Teaching the Fa in the City of Los Angeles, “What those evil specter factors of the vile Party want is precisely to make you drowsy, and the drowsier you get, the more they reinforce that drowsiness. They just won't let you send righteous thoughts, because by doing so you are purging them. When you send forth righteous thoughts to destroy them, they interfere.”
Nevertheless, we did not follow Master’s teachings precisely. In some cases, we do not take SFRT seriously. Some practitioners do well in Fa study and saving sentient beings. But they did not place importance to SFRT. They did not even send forth righteous thoughts at the four global times. Others have never sent forth righteous thoughts at midnight Beijing time. On top of that, someone reckoned that so many Dafa disciples have done it, so it won’t matter if they forget to participate in. What will it be like if most disciples view the issue in this manner? Won’t it produce a big void among practitioners? For this reason, won’t the evil take advantage of this void to provoke interference?
Till now, every practitioner should ask themselves, “Am I a Dafa disciple in Fa-rectification period? Have I played the leading role? Have I fulfilled my sacred responsibility? Can I catch up with Master’s Fa rectification progress? Have I done well in the three things that Master requested us to do? If we cannot say YES, we need to hurry up.”
Some practitioners may forgive themselves. They reckoned that they’ve done their best, but the result was not perfect. This is incorrect! This is postnatally formed notions, not coming from the original self. As disciples, as long as we sincerely try every effort, we can get everything done. If we cannot let go of negative thoughts, our sending forth righteous thoughts will not be effective. Also, it might trigger an unwanted impact.
Sincerely hope that we can study Fa carefully, reinforce our righteous thoughts and do well in SFRT. In the battle between good and evil, we should perform the function as Dafa disciples.
I send the following thoughts for an hour every night: “All the devils interfering with the U.S. Election and prevented people being saved should be purged.” The more frequently I send forth righteous thoughts, the more I feel my realm becoming clearer and brighter. I believe that as long as we keep up with the progress of Fa-rectification, we are able to send out huge energy.
Master said in Fa Teaching at the 2009 Washington DC International Fa Conference, “Compassion is an enormous energy, the energy of righteous gods. The more compassion that is present, the greater this energy becomes, and it can disintegrate anything that is bad.”
I have developed my understandings of Fa teaching. I realized that as Dafa cultivators, we are righteous gods. When we send out enormous energy, we are able to disintegrate all bad things.
