My Thoughts about "Repeating 'Falun Dafa Is Good' Can Save Lives"
(Clearwisdom.net) During discussions I have heard practitioners say, "So and So repeated 'Falun Dafa is good' and 'Quit the Communist Party,' so how come he/she still died?" In my humble opinion, the benefits of understanding "Falun Dafa is good" and "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good" are more profound than the mere saving of one's human life. Falun Dafa can guide people toward high levels, and, as many people have come to learn, it can improve people's morals and stabilize society. For practitioners, they can obtain physical and mental health based on how much they understand the Fa.
The same as with understanding the truth of Dafa. As we spread the Fa today, understanding that Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good fundamentally shows a human heart wanting to be good. Believing that Falun Dafa is good and Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good makes the most out of a life and gives the life a wonderful future, which is most essential. However, in terms of "benefits" in the human world, results vary because, on one the hand, Buddha only looks at people's hearts and does not make deals with humans, while on the other hand, every human being has different karmic relationships, therefore, the "good reward" manifests in different forms and to different degrees.
"Repeating 'Falun Dafa is good' can save lives." I think it was practitioners who said this. Right and wrong are not absolute. In real life and on the Internet, we have encountered many miracles. For example, some people's incurable diseases have disappeared, some people have left this world in peace without suffering much pain, and some have survived accidents after they thought of Dafa at the critical moment and sincerely repeated, "Falun Dafa is good." Honestly speaking, these people would have surely died in those situations if they were not protected by gods. During the Sichuan earthquake in May 2008, those who had understood the truth and had quit the Communist Party and its associated organizations all "happened to" survive. There are all kinds of different examples in our real world. There are also other outcomes. For instance, some people's karma was too great and they passed away after learning the truth, but they reincarnated very soon. Our eyes cannot see these things, and it is not appropriate to talk about them to non-practitioners, because speaking on too high levels can have a negative effect. Nevertheless, blessings are not brought about by superficial things such as "talismans" or repeating "Falun Dafa is Good." Instead, it can be a result if one truly believes that Falun Dafa is good. A complete atheist or a person who hates Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance will never experience such miracles.
On another other hand, for many people, blessings may include saving one's life. But everyone is different. In addition, the fate of non-practitioners cannot be completely changed like the fate of practitioners can. In the human world, there is the principle of mutual-generation and mutual-inhibition, and nothing can be absolute or extreme. If a certain number of practitioners have all developed an attachment to a particular thing, interference will incur. Therefore, as we clarify the truth about the current incidents taking place during the persecution of Falun Gong, we must be rational and clear-minded. Regardless of whether we are clarifying the facts face-to-face or in writing, we should be careful about what we say.
