Eliminating the Mindset of Relying on Everyday People

By a practitioner in China

Prior to the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) national conference, Master published the article "Stay Clearheaded." After obtaining the article, I spent some time each day reading and reciting it.

“Don’t harbor any false hopes about the evil CCP.” (“Stay Clearheaded”)

“Dafa disciples shouldn’t harbor any fantasies about it.” (“Stay Clearheaded”)

Master's words were nothing but a heavy hammer that awakened me.

While searching within according to the Fa, I felt that I still had the mindset of relying on and holding false hopes about everyday people. When I read an article on the Internet about a certain CCP leader being someone famous in history in a previous life, I was hoping that he would arrest those perpetrators that persecuted Falun Gong practitioners and bring them to justice. When the Wang Lijun incident took place in the first half of this year (2012), I was very excited, and was hoping that finally Jiang's group would be punished. When I read another article on the Internet, stating that a family member of a CCP leader practiced Dafa, a thought came to my mind hoping that the authorities would restore Dafa's name.

After cultivating so many years, why do I still have the mindset of relying on the evil CCP and everyday people? It is due to my lack of Fa study and clear understanding of the CCP's evil nature. No matter who it is, as long as he or she does not have a positive outlook on Dafa and has not quit the CCP and its associated organizations after realizing the the evil nature of the CCP, this person will face eventual destruction and elimination. How could we pin our hopes on the leaders of the evil CCP?

It's been over 13 years since the persecution began in July 1999. The Fa validation situation in China has been progressing well. It is created and made possible by the righteous thoughts and deeds of practitioners both inside and outside of China. No matter how much the situation in the everyday people's world changes, we disciples should always hold a peaceful state of mind. We must remember Master's words, “Cultivating and saving people are Dafa disciples’ magnificent missions.” (“Stay Clearheaded”) We must cultivate ourselves diligently and save more sentient beings.

I would also like to make a suggestion to those fellow practitioners who have the same attachment and mindset. Please memorize this article, read it over and over, recite it over and over, and keep looking for shortcomings.

Recognizing the Evil Nature of the Chinese Communist Party

By Chu Yuan

Recently when I clarified the truth to my coworkers at work, many of them asked me for the software to break through the Internet blockade so that they could get information from overseas websites. Many of them expressed their uttermost disgust at the evil deeds perpetrated by Bo, Gu, and Wang. Especially when they learned about the savage crimes of organ harvesting committed against Falun Gong practitioners, they were infuriated and described it as “extremely inhumane and barbaric.” However, they had a common misconception that these heinous crimes were committed by certain individuals and were not attributable to the evil nature of the CCP. They held hopes that the CCP's 18th National Conference would help resolve domestic conflicts, improve people's living standards, and restore the reputations of the June 4th democratic demonstration participants and Falun Gong practitioners.

All phenomena in the human world are linked to the attachments of us Dafa disciples. I asked myself, “Searching within, do I also have the mindset of hoping for changes in the human world?” In the beginning, I thought I did not have this mindset. But as I continued, I realized that I had been using the software to break through the Internet blockade to read the news on the Epoch Times website every day and paid a lot of attention to the domestic situation. Isn't that an attachment to the situation of the human world? Is it a hidden hope placed on some relatively sensible CCP leaders? Sometimes I debated with myself, “I read the news to do better in truth clarification.” However, hidden under that thought, is it really a pure mind for saving people, or is it something else?

Today I studied Master's new article “Stay Clearheaded,” where Master pointed out:

“Don’t harbor any false hopes about the evil CCP.”

“For an entire century, the evil Party has constantly changed its lies so as to disguise itself and harm people.”

I realized that since the persecution began, the evil CCP has been changing its excuses for and means of persecuting practitioners, from the initial imprisonment, forced labor, sentencing, and killing, to the subsequent brainwashing and hypocritical care. What they have been doing is filled with violence and lies. It is a display of their inherited traits, including deceit, incitement, unleashing the scum of society, spying, robbery, conflict, elimination, and control. Dafa disciples have weathered a lot and must see through to the core of the CCP. We should not misdirect our minds and hearts. The current time is intended for us to save more people. Only if we explain to people the nature of the CCP can they be saved.

I hope that fellow practitioners with attachments similar to mine will correct their understandings of the CCP. We cannot give the evil old forces an excuse, which is our attachment, to persecute and destroy sentient beings.

Please kindly point out anything inappropriate in the above understanding. Heshi.
