Having Complete Faith in Teacher and the Fa
(Clearwisdom.net) As Falun Dafa practitioners, our faith in Teacher and the great Fa should not have any doubt or reservations. This issue is not obvious during everyday circumstances. In my nearly ten years of cultivation experience, I have understood some phenomena which I think have something to do with this issue.
Ever since the persecution against Falun Dafa began in 1999, there have been certain practitioners who only read Zhuan Falun and do not read any of Teacher's articles or Fa-lectures published after 1999. I also learned from the Internet that certain practitioners were confused and fooled by special agents and began to follow the things put forth by special agents. These problems exist because some practitioners did not have complete faith in Teacher and the Fa. For instance, some individual practitioners actually believed what was said in the website used by special agents to confuse Falun Dafa practitioners and circulated it among some practitioners. Doesn't this have something to do with some individuals' not being able to have complete faith in Teacher and the Fa-teaching given by Teacher after 1999?
Ever since 1999, the stunts pulled by special agents of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), be it on the Internet or in society, be it in disguise as some characters or even as practitioners, the major goal was to sway Falun Dafa practitioners' righteous faith in Teacher and the Fa. Their methods include attacking and negating the Minghui/Clearwisdom website and instigating practitioners to not study and not believe in Teacher's articles and Fa-lectures published after 1999.
As a matter of fact, as long as we maintain fundamental righteous thoughts and faith, we will be able to clearly see the CCP's despicable tricks. I want to ask this question: As a cultivator, can we selectively believe in Teacher's Fa-teaching, and can we believe in one aspect of Fa-teaching and not believe in another aspect of Fa-teaching? Take the Minghui/Clearwisdom website for example. Teacher said that regarding important issues, look to the position of the Minghui/Clearwisdom website. There is also a photo of Master Li quietly watching practitioners and the world on the the Minghui/Clearwisdom homepage. How can we fundamentally negate the Minghui/Clearwisdom website? Isn't the CCP agents' tricks to make practitioners to fundamentally not believe in or even negate Minghui/Clearwisdom an effort to make us not receive or not believe in the real messages of Teacher and the Fa, and thus create chaos among us? Remember in 2000, a CCP agent posing as a Toronto Falun Dafa practitioner attacked the Minghui/Clearwisdom website and the practitioners who persisted in following the Minghui/Clearwisdom Website's direction. The CCP agents' tricks are just so despicable!
Although we still have many inadequacies in our cultivation, we still have a lot that we have not comprehended regarding Fa-principles, and we still do not have a completely clear understanding of the current Fa-rectification situation, these should not affect our complete righteous faith in Teacher and the great Fa. As a cultivator and a Falun Dafa practitioner, we must completely believe in Teacher and all Fa-teachings given by Teacher. We should not selectively believe in Teacher's Fa and we should not create separation in our own Fa-rectification cultivation group. These are my understandings after reading Teacher's article "Sifting of the Sand."
