(Minghui.org) I recently read a report on Minghui. The article said, “The illegal activities and human rights violations taking place inside Chinese forced labor camps have been widely condemned both inside and outside of China in recent years. With so much attention being placed on the forced labor system, the communist regime had to change its tactics. It never stopped persecuting Falun Gong, but instead began transferring practitioners from forced labor camps to prisons. And now, more and more practitioners are being handed longer and longer prison sentences.”

I remembered I was quite excited when I first heard the Political and Legal Affairs Committee secretary announcing plans to abolish the forced labor camp system. I thought things were coming to an end, and practitioners inside the forced labor camps would soon be released. I realized later that I still had hopes of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) ending the persecution of Falun Gong. That kind of thinking was wrong.

During the 18th National Congress, I visited the Baidu website every day. I wanted to see how the CCP would change its attitude towards Falun Gong. One day while searching the state council agency list, I noticed that the two agencies responsible for handling the persecution of Falun Gong were still around. My hopes were thoroughly shattered. The new CCP leaders had not made any changes; they only replaced the previous leaders, and the CCP is still the same evil party.

I began to recall Master's lectures about the old forces' arrangements, the origin of the CCP and its purpose on earth, their relationship with Dafa practitioners, the reason for the persecution, how practitioners should handle the persecution and the CCP, and how practitioners should conduct themselves amid the persecution. I then came to understand better my role as a Dafa practitioner.

Some people still have illusions about the CCP and hope that it will change for the better. Many of them are pro-democracy dissidents who live overseas. They hope that the CCP will implement political reforms or establish a constitutional government.

But Dafa practitioners should not think like that because we know from the Fa the origin of the CCP, the purpose of its existence, and the end result. How can we depend on the CCP and hope it will become good? The old forces created this evil villain to bring disasters to the world and act as the force opposite the Fa-rectification. Its true nature is evil, poisonous, and bad. Can these characteristics become good? The disintegration of the CCP has already been determined by the gods and cannot be changed.

Therefore, Dafa disciples should look at the situation from the Fa and from the angle of Fa-rectification, do the three things well, accomplish our pre-historic vows and missions, and maintain our righteous thoughts. We should not pay attention to the CCP or be moved by the illusions of the human world.

The above are my current understandings. Please kindly point out anything that is inappropriate.
