[PureInsight.org] A fellow practitioner is in her 70s living with her husband I often go to their home to deliver “Minghui Weekly”. Sometimes when I found that they were watching TV programs from the mainland, I suggested that they install NTDTV. When I saw that they had some concerns, I didn’t say more. Sometimes when I go over to her house, she would chat about her watching “News Network” and explain that she didn’t believe in the reports of the evil party.
Fellow practitioner had dizziness when she was young, and it couldn’t be cured after years of going to the hospital. She no longer feels dizzy often since started studying Dafa although she felt dizzy twice at home last year. When she feels dizzy, it is like the sky is spinning and have to use the wall as support while vomiting. The second time was more serious, and she did not eat for two consecutive days. Finally, she vomited green water. She insisted on listening to the recording of Master’s lectures and finally recovered slowly. At the end of last year, she went outside to do errands. When she went out, she was in good spirits, but she fainted on the side of the road. In the end she was found by passersby and sent to the hospital. The doctor checked her brain for hemorrhage, because of concussion in the skull, she was lying in a coma on the hospital bed all day.
After I heard about it, I helped her send forth righteous thoughts. When sending forth righteous thoughts, the first night, I saw that her field was dirty, dark, fame, wealth and lust, and she had everything. I wondered why she had been cultivating for so many years. At noon the next day, I sent her righteous thoughts again. When sending forth righteous thoughts, I was thinking about her attachments. Is it family affection or resentment? At this time, my Tianmu saw her because she was instilled with too much dirt when she often watched mainland TV programs.
After sending forth righteous thoughts, I went to her house to communicate with her partner. After listening to the old man, he agreed with me very much. He said that she mostly likes to watch costume films, saying that there is no party culture and sometimes she can watch it for several hours. Sometimes he saw some monster and ghosts in those TV plots and forced her to turn them off. When she was dizzy the first two times last year, he also told his wife about what he saw but his wife didn’t believe him thinking that she had a better understanding than him.
I said that my aunt may be too leisurely and sometimes she feels quite boring. She wanted to watch TV to relieve her boredom, but she was like a frog boiled in warm water and she fell into it, in fact there are very few positive things in ordinary TV programs nowadays. Even if they are costume films, they are not performed by Dafa disciples. They are full of wicked party culture, moreover the actor’s moral quality is very low, and every move and every eye exude karma. As Dafa disciples it’s too late for us to hide so how can we take the initiative to get polluted?
Later, I went to see another practitioner and brought up the matter. He said that he also had similar lessons. In the past few years, he was particularly willing to watch American blockbusters and ordinary movies related to cultivation, but he had a headache every time he is watching it. During that time, he had terrible headaches sometimes it occurs once a month sometimes once every five or six days. Each time it was severe pain and lasted for two days. Since then, he gave up his TV addiction, the headaches have almost disappeared, it would still occur but its every two or three months and very mild. It only lasts half a day each time. Once his daughter was watching a blockbuster movie, he followed it for a while, thinking it was a new movie and said he hadn’t watched this movie. His daughter jokes that he has a bad memory, it turned out that this was a movie he had watched before. He understood it at once. After he quit watching, Master washed out all the content he had watched before.
While we were chatting, another fellow practitioner also came and said it was not accidental that he heard about this. He said that he was very busy at work, but his son bought him a big TV, and sometimes he couldn't help watching mainland TV dramas. Later, he found that his eyes would shed tears in the wind every time he watched it, fearing the sun and causing a headache. Because this TV addiction, his eyes are bad when he is only in his fifties. He also said that he knows an elderly fellow practitioner who used to cultivate very diligently and did three things well. Now he is very old, and he is easy to forget things and is in a bad state. The last time they communicated was also because of watching a mainland TV program.
After communicating with fellow practitioners, I discovered that this problem is not an isolated phenomenon. Young practitioners cannot help falling into the evils of mobile phone networks, while older practitioners may easily slip into the evils of TV programs. Master said in Melt Into the Fa from Essentials for Further Advancement, “A person is like a container, and he is whatever he contains. All of what a person sees with the eyes and hears with the ears are: violence, lust, power struggles in literary works, struggles for profit in the practical world, money worship, other manifestations of demon-nature, and so on. With his head filled with these, this kind of person is truly a bad person, no matter what he appears to be. A person’s behavior is dictated by his thoughts. With a mind full of such things, what’s a person able to do?"
I hope that the fellow practitioners will be strict with themselves, and do not fall into the evils of the Internet and TV, and achieve Master's saying in To the Taiwan Experience-Sharing Conference, "… Be even more diligent as the end draws nearer!"
