Stirring up a Fire of Jealousy, One Gets Burned
(Clearwisdom.net) One should attach fundamental importance to being magnanimous and tolerant, understanding and sympathetic, as well as kind-hearted and compassionate. If one can conduct oneself this way, one would certainly become a person with outstanding worth and integrity. Such a person is broadminded and upright in conduct, which not only benefits others but also oneself in the end. There are always people who are narrow-minded and jealous of other people’s talent and abilities. They try every tactic, to play dirty tricks on others to benefit themselves, but in the end, they fail to harm others, instead they harm themselves. It is like the old Chinese saying: Jealousy burns like fire, and if one stirs up such a fire, he would only get burned himself.
Looking back far into China's past, the story is told thus:
Towards the end of China's Shang Dynasty, King Zhou of Yin lived a life of extreme luxury and debauchery, incurring the indignation of the gods who thus decided to end the Shang Dynasty and give rise to the Zhou Dynasty. The Primitive God of Heaven, together with the Supreme Lord and Tongtian Hierarch, worked out a list of deifications to use for the end of the Shang and the rise of the Zhou. The Primitive God of Heaven entrusted upright and benevolent Jiang Ziya with the task of conferring titles on immortals. Jiang Ziya wrapped up the list of deification and the precious god-beating whip and orange flag and went down the mountain, keeping in mind firmly the mission he had been assigned.
But Shen Gongbao, another disciple of the Primitive God of Heaven, became resentful and jealous. He felt he had more magic abilities than Jiang Ziya and was better at martial arts, too, and he should be the one to carry out the mission. He did not dare to go against his master's arrangement, but he opposed Jiang Ziya whenever possible behind his master’s back. He stopped Jiang Ziya on the way down the mountain and bet Jiang Ziya that he could cut off his head, toss it up in the sky and put it back on his shoulders again. Should he succeed, Jiang Ziya was to then burn the list of deification and begin to help King Zhou of Yin.
Immortal Nanji knew that Shen Gongbao would instigate 36 detachments of troops and horses to fight Jiang Ziya. He asked the White Crane Boy to turn into a crane and took away Shen Gongbao’s head. Jiang Ziya begged Immortal Nanji to forgive Shen Gongbao, even though Shen Gongbao committed such a wrong-doing. Shen Gongbao did not learn a lesson from this and remained jealous of Jiang Ziya and did not correct his errors. Instead, he went even further to oppose Jiang Ziya, going against the will of heaven.
Jiang Ziya went through all kinds of tribulations and accomplished his mission - to confer titles on immortals. When the Shang Dynasty was brought to an end and the Zhou Dynasty was on the rise, the Primitive God of Heaven captured Shen Gongbao and put him into a hole in the Northern Sea, where he would forever suffer and never be able to be reborn.
Now let's return to the events of today.
Jiang Zemin, the most corrupt and evil CCP (Chinese Communist Party) culprit, has taken jealousy to an extreme. He saw that Falun Gong was widely spreading across China with more than 100 millions practitioners who believe in the universal principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. He saw that as a result of practicing Falun Gong, their morals were rising, and that the practice also demonstrated miraculous healing powers. Seeing all of this, he could not stand it. Jiang became extremely jealous of Master Li Hongzhi, the widely respected founder of Falun Dafa. He became outraged and insanely jealous of Falun Gond an Master Li Hongzhi and decided to crush it all in defeat.
Jiang vowed he would eliminate Falun Gong within three months. Jiang used all kinds of wicked means to frame and slander Falun Gong and issued a secret order, "Defame them politically, cut off their financial support and destroy them physically.” “If they are beaten to death, it is counted as suicide; there is no need to identify the body, just cremate the body locally straight away."
China was suddenly permeated with violence and bloodshed under the shadow of this red terror. Jiang deployed the whole state apparatus under his control - including the government, the public security organs (police), the procuratorial organs and the courts - to brutally persecute Falun Gong. Practitioners were sentenced to imprisonment or forced labor, or sent to psychiatric institutions or brainwashing centers for persecution. Many were sacked from their employment for not giving up the practice. The CCP used all kinds of torture on Falun Gong practitioners; many victims were beaten to death, poisoned to death or had their organs harvested while they were still alive. The CCP’s brutal conduct has aroused the great indignation of both gods and men. The CCP is in heavy debt of blood, and its crimes are too numerous to record.
But it is a law of the heavens- anyone who has committed countless crimes will face tribulation and come to destruction. Culprit Jiang is being condemned by heaven, and at the moment has become a member of the living dead. The gate to hell is open for him and the oil in the cauldron is boiling for his punishment. This is the inevitable, ultimate fate of this jealous evil-doer!
Stir up a fire of jealousy, only to burn oneself; facing retribution for a life of crime, the cauldron will boil the wicked soul. For those who have followed Jiang, it’s time to abandon evil and become good people. Taking a positive stance vis a vis Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance can only ensure one's safety in celebrating spring in Heaven and on Earth.
