Putting Up with the Persecution Is a Loophole in My Cultivation

May 03, 2006 |   By a Dafa practitioner from Washington, DC

(Clearwisdom.net) After the exposure of the Sujiatun Concentration Camp, I felt extremely indignant about the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP's) evil crime. In the past, I didn't do well at clarifying the truth. Now I feel I must dive into truth clarification activities and expose the crime of the concentration camps. However, in the past month, I only spent a few days exposing the CCP's crime. The rest of the time, I could not find any spare time to do that because I was either busy with my job or I had something to handle at home (I am the only one practicing Falun Gong in my family). Later on, I could not even find time to study the Fa. I sent forth righteous thoughts to alter such a tangle. The effect was small. I knew it was interference from the old forces. However, I could not find out why.

Yesterday, I read fellow practitioners' e-mails, and I finally found my loophole: I didn't have a correct starting point about the event of the concentration camps: I did not put Dafa first. On the contrary, I put the concentration camp events and the organ transplantation as the major problems. Whenever I discussed those events, I always emphasized the criminal facts surrounding the organ transplantations. I rarely mentioned Falun Gong. I thought the organ harvesting itself was already extremely evil. Any person's conscience would be awakened. Therefore, there was no need for me to mention the CCP's persecution of Falun Gong.

I was wrong. "The CCP's organ harvesting from living people" and "the CCP's persecution of Falun Gong practitioners and locking the practitioners in the concentration camps in order to harvest their organs to make money" were two totally different things. The former was to tell people that the CCP is committing crimes, and their crime was to harvest organs from living people. When people hear about this, they try to stop the CCP only from the point of view harvesting organs from live people. The CCP will still try to continue their crime of persecuting Falun Gong practitioners. What we really want to do is to tell the people that the CCP has committed crimes towards Falun Gong and Falun Gong practitioners. Harvesting organs from living people is only one of the crimes the CCP has committed against Falun Gong. The concentration camps must be eliminated. The organ harvesting must stop. However, the most important thing is that the CCP must stop the persecution of Falun Gong.

Another mistake I made on this matter was that I used an incorrect standard to measure the CCP. When I heard about the Sujiatun Concentration Camp, I thought to myself, "The CCP is truly very wicked. I cannot stand the CCP any more. I must step out and stop their crime." In fact, my mental viewpoint was wrong because it amounted to believing, "If the CCP no longer commits the crime of harvesting organs from living practitioners, I still can put up with it." I was using an ordinary standpoint to evaluate whether the CCP should stand or fall, waiting to see whether it would continue to kill people or harvest organs from living people. However, the true standard of evaluation is Truth, Compassion, Forbearance. Teacher said in the first lecture of Zhuan Falun, "Zhen-Shan-Ren is the sole criterion to discern good and bad people." Therefore, the reason the CCP is an evil party is not because it harvests organs from living people, but because it against Dafa.

From a higher point of view, I was only basing my perception on a principle of ordinary society: You should not kill people or harvest organs from living people. Therefore, I was only doing ordinary activities. I should see the situation from the point of view of the universe. I should use the universal law to view this event: The CCP is committing a crime against Dafa. That is the correct standpoint.

Therefore, when I tell the facts to people, I should speak from the viewpoint of Dafa. I may start with the concentration camps or harvesting organs from living people or use them as key topics, but I must tell people that Falun Dafa is good. The evil CCP has committed all kinds of crimes towards Dafa and Dafa practitioners, and the concentration camps and the harvesting of organs are only a portion of its crimes. We need everyone to stand up and stop the CCP's persecution of Falun Gong, including closing the concentration camps and halting the harvesting of organs from living practitioners.

After I realized my loopholes, I noticed that I had time to study the Fa today and also had time to write this article. I know that I am walking on the right path now.
