My Understanding of Minghui's Editorial “Notice Regarding Suing Jiang”
(Minghui.org) When I read the Minghui editorial “Notice Regarding Suing Jiang,” I realized that Master had set a new requirement for us. We should put down our human thoughts and follow Master's requirement.
If we have any issue with doing this, please read Master's lecture “What is a Dafa Disciple.”
I noticed many human attachments when discussing this issue with fellow practitioners. Some always use human notions to judge Master's decisions. They try to find any aspect of Master's decisions that fit their own notions, instead of letting go of their notions and unconditionally following Master's requirements. This is actually the manifestation of their selfish nature. Regardless of whether we have the attachment of fear, we should follow Master's requirements, especially regarding the issue of suing Jiang Zemin.
We are validating the Fa, not validating ourselves. We are assisting Master to rectify the Fa, so we cannot use Master's Fa to justify harboring our human attachments.
Some practitioners have complained that they are exposed because they used their real names to sue Jiang. Some felt uneasy after reading the Minghui editorial, and wondered whether they did something wrong. Cultivation is not a business. We really do not need to think too much about ourselves and calculate whether we have suffered a loss. Why do we need to think of things in that way? Our every thought is being observed by the lives in the universe. Can we bring such selfish notions to a heavenly kingdom?
Master said in “Non-Omission in Buddha-Nature” (Essentials For Further Advancement):
“I also want to tell you that your nature in the past was actually based on egotism and selfishness. From now on, whatever you do, you should consider others first, so as to attain the righteous Enlightenment of selflessness and altruism. So from now on, whatever you do or whatever you say, you must consider others or even future generations along with Dafa's eternal stability.”
During our Fa rectification cultivation, many of our thoughts and understandings are based on our selfish nature, especially those imperceptible notions that have existed for a long time. If we do not look inward in following Master's Fa, it really is hard to detect them. Selflessness and considering others first is Master's requirement for every true cultivator. It is also the manifestation of Dafa's wisdom.
The reason the old forces dare to test Dafa and Dafa disciples so destructively originates from their notions and thoughts, which are based on their selfish nature. They treat personal cultivation as more important than Fa-rectification. They believe that they arranged this test in order to help practitioners reach consummation with good intentions, so they dare to interfere in Fa rectification with their arrangements. They do not listen to Master. As a result, their arrangements have caused interference and damage to Fa-rectification.
After reading Minghui's Editorial “Notice Regarding Suing Jiang,” many practitioners first thought of their own loss and gain, instead of following Master's requirements.
I came to the understanding that Master's arrangement is out of the need for Fa-rectification. We, as particles of Fa-rectification, should cooperate unconditionally. We should not consider our personal lost and gain. Then, perhaps a large amount of people will participant in reporting Jiang's crimes using various methods. This is the best way to take full advantage of the available options.
At the same time, we are now at the last stage of the Fa-rectification period. For practitioners who were never exposed, using a pseudonym to report Jiang's crimes is to avoid unnecessary interference to their cultivation. After all, everyone's cultivation path is different.
Master taught us in “Dafa Disciples Must Study the Fa - Fa Teaching Given at the 2011 Washington DC Metro Area Fa Conference”:
“Actually, when Master wants something done a certain way, it’s not simply that he thought of something and then that’s it. I have to do a tremendous amount of preparation, which you cannot see, and all of those gods work on it too. Everything has been prepared, and all that’s missing is for you to carry it out.”
Secondly, such a decision made by Master is exactly the manifestation of the wisdom of Dafa in the human world. “Dafa is the wisdom of the Creator.” (“On Dafa” from Zhuan Falun). Master is giving practitioners a chance to completely eradicate the arrangements of the old forces.
From the start of the persecution until now, the worst test arranged by the old forces is over. Today, the old forces cannot use any excuse to test Dafa disciples, such as Dafa practitioners still having the attachment of fear regarding reporting Jiang. We do not acknowledge any test and arrangement made by old forces. Even if we do have the attachment of fear, we can get rid of it during our cultivation. This cannot be used by the old forces as an excuse to test practitioners.
The Minghui Editorial “Notice Regarding Suing Jiang” has been published. It gives those practitioners who still have fear an opportunity to participate in reporting Jiang's crimes using pseudonyms. Regardless of whether practitioners use their real names or pseudonyms to report Jiang's crimes, it is still being done to completely eradicate the arrangements of the old forces.
The above is my personal understanding. I hope we can form one body to firmly assist Master with Fa-rectification. We should do what Master wants and not use our human notions to prolong the process of our understanding Master's Fa.
