"Remaining Unaffected" Is a State of Mind of Enlightened Beings Rather Than Method for Reaching a Goal
(Clearwisdom.net) The head of the evil has stepped down. Hearing the news, many fellow practitioners could not refrain from feeling happy, but they immediately realized, "I should not be as happy as such. I should not leave a loophole for the evil to take advantage of. Otherwise, the evil will make trouble for us again." This mentality can also be put this way, "If we feel happy, the evil will then make trouble for us. If we do not feel elated, the evil will not make trouble." It seems to these practitioners that they, by acting this way, are treating this issue with their righteous thoughts, as if our cultivation practice revolved around the evil. We should not have this mentality whatsoever. We should not have the concept of being happy or unhappy. It was inevitable that the evildoer would step down, and this event has nothing to do with what we Dafa practitioners should do.
Walking our path correctly is a criterion that Dafa has for Dafa disciples, and is a stage in our progress as enlightened beings that Master wants us to reach. It has nothing to do with what the evildoers and evils in other dimension have exhibited, as the evil beings' nature is to take advantage of loopholes. We should not view this issue with a human mentality. "Remaining unaffected" is a state of the enlightened beings, as well as a criterion, that Dafa has for Dafa disciples. It does not refer to one's forcing oneself to reach a certain state or inhibiting oneself from falling into a certain state, nor is it a superficial method that one uses to achieve a certain state.
Master told us in his new article,
"What's happening is that the cosmos is going through Fa-rectification. [What is taking place in] the human world is merely how low-level beings act when gigantic cosmic bodies are being impacted by the Fa-rectification. What could human beings possibly do to gods? If there were no outside factors, would humans dare to do anything to gods? How human society unfolds is nothing but the outcome of high-level beings controlling things."
