What Is It That's Causing So Much Trouble?
(Minghui.org) In His comments to the article “Editorial: Are You a Cultivator? (With Master's Commentary)”, http://en.minghui.org/html/articles/2012/12/21/136744.html Teacher directly pointed out that it is not only the evil that has been attacking the Minghui website over the past years, but also, practitioners who have not gotten rid of their human notions have played a negative role. In the recent incident of the so-called “prophet” attacking Minghui, those who used terms such as “Prophet” and “Emptiness” belong to the same group.
Teacher's Fa teachings are all published on Minghui. Minghui is the centralized place for all first-hand materials exposing the evil. It does not matter how the evil changes its name or disguises itself in order to slander Minghui: Its purpose is to stop people from reading articles on Minghui and to stop practitioners from following Teacher's Fa teachings.
Not long ago, the evil attempted to deceive people and scam their money by using the term “Emptiness.” Teacher said in the “2012 International Fa Conference at the U.S. Capital”:
“I recently heard again that there are evil people coming up with things on the Internet, claiming that people who went astray, who did wrong, or who did things that they shouldn’t have can pay money to their website …”
After this article by Teacher was published, the so-called “Prophet” tried to defend the evil “Emptiness” on the Internet and publicly denied Teacher's Fa teaching.
It does not matter how that group of evil people changes its name; they are controlled by the evil, and they are targeting practitioners' human notions. (Please see appendix at the end of this article for more examples of the evil and “practitioners'” joining forces in attacking Minghui.)
In order to persecute those practitioners who have not gotten rid of their human notions and who do not truly practice cultivation, the evil quotes Teacher's Fa teachings out of context to deceive and poison people's minds. Only the spies who see Minghui as their enemy would make such allegations, and only practitioners with heavy human notions are willing to be fooled. In “2012 International Fa Conference at the U.S. Capital,” Teacher has already made clear the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) spies' true nature and their endings.
Misusing Teacher's Fa teachings with evil intentions amounts to slandering the Fa, and it is impossible for anybody to completely repay the large amount of karma accumulated from slandering the Fa. It does not matter how the spies who are controlled by evil forces from other dimensions cite the Fa teachings, for Teacher has directly stated many times that they are evil. If one truly considers oneself a Dafa practitioner and truly practices cultivation one will not follow those things.
However, for a long time, the practitioners who muddled along have only focused on wording instead of looking at the whole picture and the nature of things (Please note: Those who are the most focused on wording are the ones that can be most conveniently used by the evil. It is also the most often used trick by the evil to fool this type of practitioner). For a long time, some practitioners dealt with things by using human emotions, did not get rid of their human notions, could not endure loneliness, liked to express their feelings and ideas, liked hearsay, did not truly practice cultivation yet desired to reach “high levels,” and liked to gather online to tout each other. Regarding sharing experiences and understandings, Teacher has responded long ago:
“We can make selections and listen ahead of time to what they’re going to talk about. In particular, when we hold large-scale conferences we must review the speeches.” (“Talk in Guangzhou to Some Assistance Center Heads From Around the Country”)
The so-called forums for sharing experiences and understandings are in fact places to publicly vent their demon nature, and they have negative effects on society and on new practitioners. This may also be a reason why in the past, when people suggested that Minghui include forums, Teacher never approved.
Regarding the issue of “seeing Minghui in a positive light,” after the CCP launched the persecution against Falun Gong on July 20, 1999, Teacher first appeared publicly on October 21, 2000. In “Teaching the Fa at the Western U.S. Fa Conference,” Teacher told practitioners the reason why during that period he never directly signed or published any Fa teachings. All true practitioners began to understand the tremendous amount of hardship involved in Fa-rectification and how Teacher treasures all practitioners incomparably; they also came to understand the significance of Minghui. In “Fa Teaching Given at the Fa Conference Marking the Tenth Anniversary of the Minghui Website’s Founding” in 2009, Teacher said:
“There are some who don't see Minghui in a positive light, and I would say they've got a problem. At least that much is certain.” (“Fa Teaching Given at the Fa Conference Marking the Tenth Anniversary of the Minghui Website’s Founding”)
After more than 10 years of practicing cultivation during the Fa-rectification period, and now with Teacher directly adding comments to the editorial article “Are You a Cultivator?,” it should be clear that true practitioners should have gone beyond the stage of not trusting Minghui. It is no longer an issue of enlightenment regarding “seeing Minghui in a positive light,” but it is a matter of whether or not one is willing to listen to Teacher and truly practice cultivation rationally. Those who participated and organized the so-called “sign to break away from Minghui” and the so-called “eliminate the living being of Minghui”-- aren't you in a dangerous situation? Aren't you helping the evil and harming yourself?
Appendix: Examples of the evil and “practitioners'” joint efforts in attacking Minghui
From June to December 1999, “Huading” from China (who was later imprisoned by the CCP and died) started something different online and told practitioners not to read articles on the Minghui website.
From July 22, 1999, to the beginning of 2000, a few practitioners persuaded other practitioners not to work on Minghui, and they also said that Teacher had declared that Minghui would no longer exist. A large group of practitioners that were “persuaded” at the time lost a great deal.
From January to July 2000, there was an incident involving a person named Peng from Hong Kong. At that time, Peng claimed to be “Teacher” and started something different. He worked with spies and went against Minghui in ways that a spy could not.
From 2000 to present, some have fabricated lies and spread rumors saying that there are spies among the Minghui editors, and they have told practitioners to not read articles on Minghui.
From 2006 to present, the evil websites and many others have spread the rumor that Ye Hao used Minghui to make Teacher a figurehead. They attempted to fool practitioners and make them not believe Minghui, among other things.
From 2000 to present, many evil places such as the 610 Office, brainwashing centers, forced labor camps, and prisons use incidents where some of the information that Minghui correspondents provided was not accurate enough due to difficult situations, to completely reject and discredit Minghui.
Recently, some people claiming to be practitioners traveled around in various regions and spread remarks slandering Minghui, attempted to get practitioners to “completely break away from Minghui,” attempted to “eliminate the living being of Minghui,” and requested that practitioners sign their names. Because the practitioners who have not looked at Minghui positively do not know about the warnings issued by the Minghui editorial department (“The Issue of Name Lists” in 2003, “Let's See Who Still Dares to Undermine the Fa!” in 2005), a number of those practitioners were fooled and signed their names.
