In the case of ignorant, ordinary worldlings who lack virtue, with the breaking up of the body at death they go to a bad realm of existence, being reborn in hell. But you, householder, do not lack virtue; rather, you are strong in virtue. And by [recalling your] strong virtue, house- holder, you may be able to extinguish your pain and give rise to hap- piness. By [recalling your] strong virtue, householder, you may attain the fruit of once-returning or [even] the fruit of non-returning, as you have already attained stream-entry.
As I understand it it’s saying you can probably use that mental power in meditation to reach further in the Path. But it’s also not sure. This was from the Chinese Agama and was said by Sariputta. From 28. The Discourse on Teaching the Ill [Anāthapiṇḍika] in THE MADHYAMA ĀGAMA
“Don’t be afraid, householder! Don’t be afraid, householder! What’s the reason for that? If a foolish and ordinary man goes to a bad place and is born in hell, it’s on account of bad precepts. Householder, you have no bad precepts but only good precepts. Householder, on account of good precepts, you might cease pain and suffering and give rise to the greatest happiness. On account of good precepts, the fruit of a once-returner or a non-returner might be attained for a householder who’s attained stream-entry in the past.”
