Relying Only on Our Righteous Thoughts and Righteous Actions
(Clearwisdom.net) Deep down, I was disappointed after the 16th Party Congress made appointments that helped the head of the evil. This led me to think seriously about this issue from the perspective of the Fa.
I realized that the series of incidents that have taken place in society, from China's Olympic bid to the 16th Party Congress, were all arrangements of the old forces. The attitude of Dafa practitioners as a whole should not reflect the superficial actions of people in society; instead, we should solidly look at the things happening in the human world from the perspective of the Fa. Regrettably, many Dafa practitioners, including myself, more or less hold the view of "an onlooker" deep in our hearts, hoping that outcomes of society's affairs would be beneficial to Fa-rectification. Our hearts are moved by external factors in the human world, and we are unable to carry out Fa-rectification work without being interfered with. As a result, we, as a whole, have failed to break away from the arrangements of the old forces. In fact, let us think rationally. Who is qualified to assist Master in Fa-rectification? No one other than Dafa practitioners! Dafa practitioners are indeed the ones assisting Master in Fa-rectification, and this process has never, will never, and should never depend passively on the outcome of what people in society do. We can only rely on our pure, righteous thoughts and righteous actions in our urgent task of offering salvation to sentient beings. There is simply no such thing as Dafa practitioners waiting for something "favorable" to happen arbitrarily.
Only by studying the Fa well and by having strict requirements for ourselves to understand the Fa from the Fa, can we free ourselves from the shackles of human notions and become enlightened beings as part of the righteous Fa in the new universe. Not a single opportunity in Fa-rectification will repeat itself, and we should not even allow ourselves to think about "next time." Everything in society is an opportunity for us to proactively rectify the Fa, and we should not allow these things to distract our attention and slow us down. The key issue is exactly what Master said, we must "...fundamentally change our conventional thinking" ("Lunyu" from Zhuan Falun) and conduct ourselves with righteous thoughts and righteous actions. This is the path we Dafa disciples should take.
