Break Away from the Malicious Force, Join the Process of Fa-Rectification
[Minghui Net] Before I went to the Los Angeles Conference, I had been thinking about the following question, "Both inside and outside of China are one body, but the cultivation environment for the overseas practitioners is quite different from those inside China, so what do we as overseas practitioners to demonstrate our righteous mind?" At the moment when the self-immolation incident happened, when the Chinese government escalated their attack towards overseas Falun Gong practitioners, I asked myself, "How do we see these events from Dafa's perspective?" Before any deep thinking, my initial answer was, "These are the inevitable outcomes of the persecution of the Fa by the evil force. They will employ more cruel and vicious means to attack practitioners and will certainly use modern technology to spread the lies to the whole world."
In "Expounding on the Fa," the Teacher said, "You should also be clear that 'natural' does not exist, and there is a reason for 'inevitability'. In fact, 'natural' is irresponsibly used by everyday people for self-justification when they are unable to explain the phenomena of the universe, life, and matter. They cannot imagine what 'nature' itself is. Under the influence of such a notion you think that all these tribulations are inevitable and this is just the way it is, thereby developing a passive and pessimistic attitude. Therefore, your human side must understand it. More importantly, your side that has obtained the Fa must be clear about it."
I had read again and again the Teacher's lectures at the Western US Conference and the Great Lakes Conference. Teacher told us in Lecture at the Great Lakes Conference in North America: "The things that are happening today were arranged ages ago. At no point has anything gone astray. Of course, this arrangement was made by those high-level beings in the old cosmos. Moreover, it was systematically arranged by layers upon layers of old beings in the cosmos." "... I can't accept any of these. So I need to eliminate them, including this evil drama."
After further study of the Fa, I improved my understanding of the Fa-rectification process. I realized that when we accept the inevitability of the evil force's existence, we are in fact accepting the arrangement by the evil force. Since what caused all these events existed in other dimensions, the evil force would take advantage of our lack of vigilance and repeatedly assault Falun Dafa.
In the long history of the cosmos, even the very high levels of beings have deviated from the universal law. With the extremely complicated factors blending together, everything has mutated and lives become impure. If we remain firm in our own believes and refuse to accept the inevitability and arrangement by the evil, our righteous mind will generate a powerful force that no one can stop.
Once I came to this conclusion, my understanding of verifying Dafa reached a new level. And as a result, my behavior began to change accordingly. In the past, when I introduced Dafa to everyday people who did not understand Dafa or those with strong religious background, I always worried that they wouldn't agree with me. I would talk to them to fulfill my obligation. Now I think differently. I no longer worry about how others might react. I am not trying to achieve any purpose. All I do is spread and verify Dafa with my righteous mind and benevolent heart. This change has brought unexpected good results.
Another point I feel strongly about is the importance of the Fa study. With today's rapid development of Fa-rectification process, we all need to improve our understanding of Dafa and become a particle in Dafa. Only after more in-depth study of Dafa and gaining true understanding of Dafa's requirement, we can keep up with the Fa-rectification process and contribute fully as a particle of Dafa.
