Editorial: Fellow Practitioners, Let Us Give Up Our Human Mindsets
(Minghui.org) For a period of time, many practitioners have exhibited a heavy attachment to the Beijing Olympic Games, giving the old forces an omission to take advantage of. This has caused losses in validating the Fa, clarifying the truth and saving sentient beings. If Falun Dafa disciples did not have this attachment, the wicked CCP would not be able to use the Olympics to embellish itself. To the contrary, instead it might have collapsed this time. If we did not carry such an attachment, the evil Party would not be able to cite the Olympics as an excuse to persecute Dafa disciples, and there would not be so many fellow practitioners being arrested. This strong attachment has interfered with Dafa disciples, caused damage, and interfered with the world's people learning the truth.
We have cultivated in the Fa-rectification period for many years. Over the years, as certain events have approached, many practitioners became attached to them with their human mindsets, only to realize it later. Yet when another event approached, they again became attached with their human mindsets. This kind of lesson has been oft repeated over the past nine years. Master reminded us in May 2007,
"You have gone through great trials and hardships to arrive at where you are today. By all means, you shouldn't let your heart and mind bob about like duckweed, stirred at the first hint of wind." (On the Novel The Cosmos's Calamity)
Fellow practitioners, we should truly learn from this lesson. As cultivators we must look at things with righteous thoughts, not human mindsets.
Let us study the Fa more, put down attachments such as looking outside of ourselves, and then truly look inside ourselves to cultivate and save people steadily, so that we will not falter in our important mission as "Fa-rectification period Dafa disciples."
