[PureInsight.org] In the face of tribulations, only when we’re determined to save people and utilize righteous thoughts, can we drive out interferences.
What does our divine side look like? How can we understand God’s righteous thought properly? I would like to share my thoughts in this regard.
1. How to Understand the God’s Righteous Thoughts
Master said in Expounding on the Fa, from Essentials for Further Advancement, “For a long period of time the sentient beings in Dafa, especially the disciples, have had a misunderstanding of the Fa at various levels regarding xinxing improvement. Whenever a tribulation comes, you do not see it with the side of your original nature but view it completely with your human side. Evil demons then capitalize on this point and inflict endless interference and damage, leaving students in long-term tribulations. As a matter of fact, this results from an inadequate understanding of the Fa by your human side. You have humanly restrained your divine side; in other words, you have restrained the parts that have been successfully cultivated and have prevented them from doing Fa-rectification. How can the uncultivated side restrain your main thoughts or the side that has already attained the Fa? Having humanly fostered the evil demons, you allow them to capitalize on the loopholes in the Fa. When a tribulation arrives, if you, a disciple, can truly maintain an unshakable calm or be determined to meet different requirements at different levels, this should be sufficient for you to pass the test. If it continues endlessly and if there do not exist other problems in your xinxing or conduct, it must be that the evil demons are capitalizing on the weak spots caused by your lack of control. After all, a cultivator is not an ordinary human. So why doesn’t the side of you that is your original nature rectify the Fa?”
My understanding is that righteous thought refers to our cultivated side, which comes from assimilating Zhen-Shan-Ren and is powerful.
Master said in Teachings from a Tour of North America, “By July 20th of 1999 I had already pushed all of the pre-July 20 students to their positions—I pushed you to your highest positions.”
Also, Master stated in Fa Teaching at the 2013 Greater New York Fa Conference, “I did say something to this effect early on. I said that Dafa disciples, including new students, would at the time be swiftly pushed by me to their position, as long as they cultivated. And to what position was that? To wherever you came from, whatever height it may be; you would be pushed to your position in a short time. The human body at the surface doesn’t go through drastic changes. For you to be able to manifest powers that great, you have to have righteous thoughts of that strength, and only then can you have that much of an impact; your righteous thoughts have to be pure to that degree before you can have that much of an impact.”
So what is the height of our divine side? Master said in On Dafa, from Zhuan Falun, “It encompasses all things, from the utmost minuscule to the vastest of the vast, while manifesting differently at each of the cosmic body’s planes of existence. Out of the depths of the cosmic body, the tiniest of particles first appear, with layers upon layers of countless particles following, ranging in size from small to great, reaching all the way to the outer planes that humankind knows—those of atoms, molecules, planets, and galaxies—and beyond, to what is still larger. Particles of varying sizes make up lives of varying sizes as well as the worlds of varying sizes that permeate the cosmic body.”
Our original nature might be Gods of very high levels, which were combined bodies of immortal body, divine side, and true thoughts. Though our human side is unaware of this, we may have already had immortal bodies cultivated. When we’re selfless, the human side may not even exist. But our divine side will function. The human body is just a piece of skin. The righteous thoughts are sent forth from divine body, not from human body. This divine being can travel through various spaces, with the evil factors purged.
2. How to Utilize God’s Righteous Thoughts
From the Fa, we know that human beings live in a world composed of one layer of molecules. The more microscopic the more delicate, the stronger the energy. If our origin is in a place where there is no form and no concept of time and space, the gong emanating from this place is very powerful. It penetrates from above and easily disintegrates the evil factors and interference on the surface of human beings. If you maintain this state nearly in every minute, your own energy field will be very powerful. When I send forth righteous thoughts, my main consciousness often enters this space, which is dazzling with golden light, and I feel that the energy emitted is quite strong.
Even at the tangible micro-level, as long as it is higher than the human level, its ability is far greater than the human side, and sending forth righteous thoughts also works. Of course, the surface of a human being has to conform to the state of ordinary human world.
Master said in Wake Up, “The Fa’s rectification of the Cosmos has finished, and now a transition to the Fa’s rectification of the human world is taking place.” My understanding is that our human body stays connected with the cosmic body at a microscopic level. In other words, the microscopic level of our lives has actually completed Fa-rectification, and is currently breaking through to the human epidermis. Therefore, as long as we use our spiritual thoughts, righteous thoughts will arise, and we can quickly break through and remove the interference on the human surface.
Also, Master said in Also in a Few Words, from The Essentials of Diligent Progress II, “Indestructible righteous faith in the cosmos’s Truth forms benevolent Dafa disciples’ rock-solid, Diamond-Like Bodies, it frightens all evil, and the light of Truth it emanates makes the unrighteous elements in all beings’ thoughts disintegrate. However strong the righteous thoughts are, that’s how great the power is.”
Furthermore, Master stated in Wake Up, “You are someone who leads a life of spiritual development under the Great Way and who helps me to save people, and while saving people you have helped to eliminate for many people bacteria and viruses thousands of times more potent than those of any epidemic. ”
Due to our faith in Master and Dafa, we should believe that we already carry such powerful capabilities. Since we possess abilities of higher levels, will we still be attached to anything among everyday people? As long as our righteous thoughts arise, the evil force would not dare to persecute us. Under this circumstance, we just need to save people diligently. Why being persecuted? This is because our gaps of unrighteous thoughts were exploited by the evil.
At one time, when I was sending forth righteous thoughts, I suddenly saw a sturdy black-clothed man holding a wooden square and smashing it at a practitioner's chest. I immediately scolded, "Why are you hitting someone so casually?!" He turned around and said, "I'm going to hit her righteous thought out." Then it disappeared.
I met with the practitioner on the following morning, she claimed that she suffered chest pain. That’s to say, it is critically important to maintain powerful righteous thoughts.
Some time ago, many practitioners were feeling physically uncomfortable. But I don’t think this was totally inflicted by sickness karma. Most probably, we were pushed to truly step forward out of ordinary humanness, discard final attachments and assimilate the Fa of higher levels. Master said in Teaching and Explaining the Fa at the Metropolitan New York Fa Conference, “But, this doesn't rule out cases where you fail to pass tests well or where you have attachments or do something wrong but haven't realized it and the old forces or evil beings interfere and cause discomfort in your body. Earlier on those kinds of things happened a lot.”
An aged practitioner felt a bit physical discomfort. Some other practitioners communicated with her many times and SFRT. Then she passed the test. She sent me a message: I should be at ease to validate Dafa in front of Chinese Consulate in the snowstorm.
I replied to her, “Master said in Hong Yin II, ‘Gods are in the world, validating Fa.’ You’re the God validating the Fa in human world. All incorrect thoughts will hinder you safeguarding the Fa. Therefore you should have them purged completely and strengthen your righteous thoughts. Master had already pushed us to our ultimate rank. Dafa has boundless Fa powers. As long as our faith in Dafa keeps unshakable, we can have every issue resolved.”
Since then, this practitioner’s righteous thoughts have been more powerful. She has kept clarifying the truth in front of the Chinese Consulate.
3. Utilize Righteous Thoughts to Drive out Interferences
In the past, we got used to viewing cultivation practice from humanness. As human beings live in a world of delusion, it’s hard for them to discover the attachments and make breakthroughs. After Master had the scripture “Wake Up” released, I realized that we should be able to discern the true self and fake self and to concentrate on saving people.
The Gods’ compassion is immense and are responsible for other beings all lifetime. Yet everyday people need awakening. Under this circumstance, we should diligently transmit the message: “Falun Dafa is good”. If being attached to the end time of Fa-rectification, the old forces would take advantage of this gap.
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.” My understanding is that the compassion itself contains wisdom and capabilities. We’ll evaluate all problems and issues compassionately. Even when involved in conflicts, we will not generate jealousy, resentment and competitive mentality.
Many practitioners claimed that they would cultivate well and go back home with Master. This is correct. But the rest of time is mainly used to save people.
When validating the Fa, we’ll encounter obstacles. This does not mean we’re incapable of validating the Fa. We should be determined to improve our confidence and raise our xinxing level when doing things.
Master said in Teaching and Explaining the Fa at the Metropolitan New York Fa Conference, “Sometimes when you folks think about an issue you form a type of habit---‘I want to do such and such thing… here’s how I’m going to do this thing… here’s how I’m going to do that thing.’ You ponder over it a lot and, well, to the point that you feel you’ve covered everything in a satisfactory way. But when you get down to doing that thing, the real, actual situations can vary in a lot of ways and your plan won’t actually work (laughs). And when it doesn’t work, you start to ponder it again. That’s not how you should do things. Have righteous thoughts! However you think something should be handled, just go ahead and do it, and when you run into problems you will naturally know how to solve them. If your righteous thoughts are strong, everything will work out smoothly and it’s guaranteed you’ll do well.”
“Why do I tell you to do things this way? It seems passive, right? But that’s not true, because the side of you that has been successfully cultivated knows everything, and no matter how you do it, it will work, and no matter how you do those things you’ll be able to do them well. So you just need to have the thought. When you know what to do, just go ahead and do it, and while you do it your wisdom will continually come forth, because at that time the side of you that has been successfully cultivated will fuse together with the side of you here. That’s a god, who is omnipotent! So of course a small issue will be resolved in no time, and your wisdom will come forth—it’s different then! And if you get stuck Master will give you wisdom.”
My understanding is that when the Fa-rectification of the human world takes place, we need to handle lots of things independently. Therefore currently, we should truly practice our xinxing and ascend.
Moreover, Master said in Teaching the Fa on Easter, 2004, at the New York Fa Conference, “On this special, glorious day, may Dafa disciples' divine sides also be resurrected!”
Please kindly point out anything that is not aligned with the Fa in this sharing.
Thanks, esteemed Master!
Thanks, fellow practitioners.
