Eliminate the Evil Specter and Purify Ourselves
(Clearwisdom.net) There has been a lot of recent discussion and analysis of the nature of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). It has helped me clearly recognize the nature of the evil specter of the CCP. I have come to understand that in the last stage of Fa-rectification, as a cultivator, that I should eliminate the influence of this evil specter from both my thoughts and my dimensional field, so as to save more people.
It has possessed almost each and every person in China. Our human notions, behavioral standards, moral standards and the way we live with others are all manifestations of being possessed by the evil specter of the CCP.
People that I have come across at different levels have been possessed by the evil specter, stopped from learning the truth about the persecution of Falun Dafa. At one time, I went back to my hometown village to clarify the truth. Everyone, from the elderly to school students, could understand and accept that Falun Dafa is good, and that "Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance" is good. They all hated CCP corruption, but at the same time, there was manifestation of their being possessed by it.
One woman there said, "The CCP is corrupt, but only the CCP can make us have a happy life." Another young man wanted to learn Falun Gong. Every night, he asked me to tell him about the truth of Falun Dafa. He learned the exercises in earnest. However, he said unexpectedly, "I admire the CCP." Targeting his notions, I told him about how the CCP destroyed human morality, and how wonderful Falun Dafa is, helping him to truly distinguish good from evil.
On July 20, 1999, the evil launched the rampant persecution against Falun Dafa. Orders from the highest levels were passed down to lower ranks, forbidding Party members from practicing Falun Gong. It was a serious test for practitioners who were Party members. Some practitioners gave up Falun Dafa simply because they were Party members. Most practitioners successfully resisted, negated and broke away from the control of the evil specter of the CCP. They came through in a noble and dignified manner.
At that time, a retired woman who was always proud of her Party membership expressed during group Fa-study and experience sharing that she still felt it was an honor to serve people as a Party member. However, the evil forbade Party members from practicing Falun Gong. Therefore, she was in a dilemma. She didn't want to give up her CCP membership, and she wanted to practice Falun Gong. I asked her why she was reluctant to leave the CCP. She hesitated for a long time before finally making the decision to quit.
Here is another typical example. A veteran practitioner, a retired government official, changed tremendously after practicing Falun Gong. He became a volunteer assistant, and led us to do the exercises and study the Fa each day. After receiving the order that Party members were forbidden to practice Falun Gong, he remained determined for some time. Later, though, he became hesitant, and finally, he began to oppose Falun Gong.
Recently, a very diligent practitioner and Party member felt that although the CCP brutally persecuted Falun Dafa practitioners, as a Party member, she still had to pay her membership fees. This shows that the evil specter of the CCP is still in control of her.
Through studying the Fa, we have come to a clear understanding that the CCP is an evil factor used by the old forces to persecute Falun Dafa. How can we meet the criteria of cultivators if we still abide by this evil factor today? How can we be worthy of being Falun Dafa disciples? When we wrote our applications for CCP membership and took oaths under its symbol, we became possessed by the evil specter. Must we not declare null and void the agreements and oaths that we had signed with the CCP?
When we yield to the evil, we leave an irreparable stain in our lives. Thanks to our Teacher's great compassion, we have a chance to officially declare our CCP oaths as invalid, and to make up for our mistakes. Isn't it eliminating the evil, eradicating the evil and purifying ourselves? As Falun Dafa disciples, we should immediately and completely dissolve all of the CCP factors within ourselves and become upright and dignified Falun Dafa disciples.
