How Should We Look At the Legal Case against Jiang in US Court?
(Clearwisdom.net) After our group study this evening, several practitioners discussed the phenomena that seemingly not many of us were paying a lot of attention to the legal case against Jiang for torture and genocide in US Court. We shared how to understand this issue in terms of the overall Fa rectification and how to treat this as Fa-rectification period Dafa disciples.
Recently I had been experiencing that the urgent matters in Fa-rectification not only eclipsed what appeared possible for me to do, but that it seemed I even could not contain all of the important and urgent things in my mind at one time--feeling they were overwhelming. Several other practitioners noted the phenomena of being unclear or numb amidst a barrage of urgent matters.
This caused me to reflect on Master's words in Explaining the Fa During the 2003 Lantern Festival at the U.S. West Fa Conference:
"If you don't prioritize well, then it could affect what you need to do since, I'm going to tell you, all of what you do is for yourself. Being able to prioritize things well is remarkable in its own right, and it will result in your walking the path the right way, and that's mighty virtue."
As I see it, it is a problem amongst Dafa disciples if we are always running from one emergency to another or if we are unable to maintain a clear head regarding the priorities of Fa-rectification. I don't think this is the state of Fa-rectification cultivation but results from the evil taking advantage of our lack of clarity on the Fa and on cultivation.
Of course, it's not that emergency situations should be ignored. However, we must remember that we are Dafa disciples doing Dafa work. We should sincerely look inside to find what notions, attachments, shortcomings in understanding or improper behaviour we have that allow these emergency situations to arise, and weed them out.
Also, we must take each step rationally and always keep the larger picture of Fa-rectification in mind, so that the evil may not take advantage of our omissions to keep us "busy" but with the most important things being neglected. Without these points, I think we may continue to busy ourselves with emergencies, yet not achieve the full effect of what we need to fulfill in the Fa-rectification.
Master said, "...you have indeed done a lot of things quite well. This is especially so when you were proactive about doing things well."(Teaching the Fa at the 2002 Fa Conference in Boston)
And also, "So I won't lead you by the hand anymore, I want you to consider things more, and that means giving you opportunities, giving you opportunities to walk the path yourselves."( Explaining the Fa During the 2003 Lantern Festival at the U.S. West Fa Conference)
With specific regards to the legal case against the head of the evil in US court, I feel the evil has been working hard to distract and interfere with practitioners and prevent us from having a proper righteous understanding and approach to this issue.
Master said in Touring North America to Teach the Fa, "The old forces don't want to let it go down to hell immediately, and they say this is because they'll never be able to find a character like it again."
The old forces value the head of the evil because it can be manipulated to such an extent. They have made it carry out the evil persecution against Dafa, even when other leaders of the country all opposed it.
It has ordered the entire nation's military, police force and government to persecute Dafa practitioners. In the human world, the entire persecution against Dafa and Dafa disciples stems from it and is tied to it. It is the biggest representative of the old forces' persecution and fabrications against Dafa.
Thus when we target the head of the evil and expose its crimes, the evil will all gather together to protect it. The threat of evil Jiang being punished in the human society itself is too frightening to the evil and affirms the world's strong opposition to the persecution of Dafa, the Law of the Universe.
We should make use of our circumstances to let the world's people know that evil Jiang is being sued in a US Court for crimes of Torture and Genocide. In addition, we should maintain a righteous mind and righteous thoughts towards this issue, amidst whatever Dafa work we are doing. We should also send righteous thoughts to eliminate the evil that attempts to interfere with this case.
Amidst the evil's last horrid frenzy, we should remain unmoved and clearheaded on our mission of Fa-rectification. We should more fully demonstrate the wisdom and strength of Dafa disciples of the Fa-rectification period.
Let's review Master's poem "The Foretelling":
Autumn is not over
yet spring has arrived
What humans don't believe in
all now comes forth
The sky cracks open
and the earth burns
The evil tries to hide
the wicked ones to flee
As gong surges forth
evil spirits wail and scream
The Dafa disciples
ascend to the heights of the heavens
In control of Heaven and Earth, rectifying the human realm
