Sending forth righteous thoughts is a special duty given to us by Master. Before sending forth righteous thoughts, we need to cleanse ourselves for five minutes. How? Master has already clearly pointed that out in "Teaching the Fa at the 2001 Canada Fa Conference," from Guiding the Voyage "…quiet their minds for five minutes, sitting with their hands in Jieyin and thinking about eliminating the bad thoughts, karma, bad notions, and external interference in their minds. As you're like this, think that they die, and then they will be eliminated. Five minutes will do." Master has clearly explained what we should do, all it takes is for us to follow it.
When fellow cultivators share their experiences, it is not a problem to discuss our different feelings and points of view. However, when the discussions provoke our attachments, we tend to forget what we have learned from the Fa. It is the Fa that directs us in cultivation, not our feelings.
Studying the Fa is a serious matter. Any idea, opinion or enlightenment is merely a stage in cultivation, to which we should not be attached. Study the Fa with a clear and calm heart, and we will advance our levels unknowingly.
Studying the Fa well is our key to correctly walking every step of the way. "There is another reason for failing to increase cultivation energy. Because you do not know the Law existing in the high dimension, you will not be able to go up in cultivation." (Zhuan Falun). Sending forth righteous thoughts isn't only for a couple of minutes each day, but is reflected in every notion, thought, and movement. By seriously studying the Fa, we constantly advance ourselves in our maturation, wisdom, clear-headedness and solidity.
