Short Essay: Where Righteous Thoughts Arise Is Where the Evil Is Eliminated; Let us Eliminate the Real Cause Behind the Persecution
(Clearwisdom.net) This campaign of persecution started by Jiang and targeting the hundreds of millions of people who pursue "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance" and their families was illegal right from the start. In the last three years, nearly one hundred million innocent Falun Gong practitioners have been persecuted, more than one hundred thousand have been imprisoned or sent to forced labor camps and mental hospitals, and thousands have been persecuted to death. And this persecution is still ongoing. This campaign of persecution is not just aimed at China's Falun Gong practitioners; it is also aimed at all people who freely believe in and pursue "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance." This is unrestrained trampling of mankind's sense of justice, morality and conscience. Is it a crime to oppose this persecution by appealing through peaceful sit-ins? Of course not! Falun Gong practitioners everywhere are striving to let people and governments all over the world know the truth of this campaign of persecution and the extent of this persecution's wickedness, calling upon even more kind hearts to join together to stop this persecution -- how can this be a crime? Clearly this is creating blessings for the people of the world, because morality, justice and truth form the basis for the happiness of mankind's society, and this happiness needs to be safeguarded by mankind itself.
Without the persecution, there would be no appeal. If it is said that the appeals really brought inconveniences to people's lives, then the first group of people that have been inconvenienced are the tens of millions of Falun Gong practitioners who are steadfast in their beliefs. The ultimate culprit for creating these inconveniences is Jiang's gang. To resolve the problem at the root, the first person to be held accountable in a court of law should be Jiang, to be followed by his organization of terror, the "610 Office," and their accomplices in the Chinese Liaison Office. Otherwise, how could the public be convinced? The basis of law is justice and fairness. Hong Kong cannot have a court in which the culprits are allowed to accuse their victims first and turn upon those they have persecuted. Moreover, the evidence supports the fact that the Chinese Liaison Office's charge of "obstructing traffic"" is a completely false accusation made up by villains.
If Hong Kong, which values democracy and freedom like democratic Western countries, cannot even allow this small amount of space used by Falun Gong practitioners to peacefully appeal, then this type of inconvenience quite likely will not be just forced upon only Falun Gong practitioners. All of those people who originally enjoyed democracy and freedom, especially the people of Hong Kong, will have no choice but to sell out their own convenience in order not to be persecuted by Jiang's gang. Scoundrels and villains have always taken advantage of people progressively, step by step. This is the result of their inborn nature. This time Falun Gong practitioners were peacefully appealing against persecution, but they were instead carted off into the courtroom by the Hong Kong police at the direction of the persecutors. Next time someone else might say something unfavorable about Jiang's ideologies such as the "Three Represents--" then how can you guarantee that Jiang won't indict you for your thought-crime and throw you in jail? When society goes in this direction, who is being harmed and who benefits the most? We should let every country's government, media and citizens know about this truth in a timely fashion, so that they may speak out with their voices of justice and fulfill their moral obligation to safeguard society's best interests.
As Falun Gong practitioners, we must clearly remember that our righteous thoughts must be strong. This campaign of persecution is not a common villainous government's persecution of some honest common folk, but they are innumerable sins being committed against Dafa by the chief evil in the human world as directed by the old evil forces. In order to eliminate the persecution and stop the low-level beings from fomenting chaos, we must eliminate at the root the elements controlling the Hong Kong police with our righteous thoughts from the perspective of Fa-rectification. When our bodies and minds are melted together with the Fa, becoming a particle of Dafa, letting the cultivated side direct our rectifying the Fa and offering salvation to people of the world, then whether we take the format of clarifying the truth or sending forth righteous thoughts, we are eliminating in large quantities the evil matter in other dimensions that is harming mankind. When those evil things are eliminated to the point where they are no longer sufficient to be of use, then the persecution in this human dimension will end naturally. This is not a contest between people, but a part of the cosmic battle between good and evil.
Where righteous thoughts arise is where the evil is eliminated; let us use the rationality, wisdom, and determination of Fa-rectification disciples to eliminate the real cause behind the persecution.
