Negating Old Force Arrangements Behind Lust
(Minghui.org) As I understand it, the attachment of lust is related to thought karma, human notions, and karmic debts. For practitioners, it may also involve arrangements by the old forces, and it may therefore be difficult for practitioners to fully eliminate lust by simply suppressing such notions.
The test of lust must be taken seriously, and we cannot let it control us.
Old Force Arrangements
Given the old force arrangements and moral decay in society, sexual relationships have gone far beyond the process of producing offspring. Having more and more sex has turned into a major goal for many people. Media outlets openly promote sexual freedom, stores sell provocative clothing, and literature and movies depict extramarital affairs. One can easily access sexual content and pornography on the Internet, and many people do even on their phones.
I believe that the old forces created such a degenerate environment to test cultivators. Their true intent is to destroy practitioners and mankind by not making them worthy of being human.
“The old forces have arranged for all Dafa disciples a set of their things, so if a Dafa disciple doesn’t follow Master’s requirements, he must be following the old forces’ arrangements.” (“Be Clearheaded” from The Essentials of Diligent Progress VOL. III)
As some practitioners have seen with their celestial eye, the old forces forced some practitioners to sign contracts with them before coming to this human world. This may include committing wrongdoings with other practitioners in regards to lust.
Many everyday people take lust and extramarital relations for granted, but when practitioners encounter such incidents involving their spouses or the people around them, they need to look inward to improve themselves. These situations may become factors in our dimensional fields, and I believe that we have an obligation to cleanse our environments.
We need to judge everything based on the Fa, and not acknowledge anything that is of an inappropriate nature for a practitioner.
If we are unable to disassociate from the degenerate society and instead follow trends unacceptable for a practitioner, we will have no future. Only by upholding traditional values and acting based on the Fa can we fundamentally oppose the old forces' arrangements. Once we have reached such a level in cultivation, our energy and gong will also help eliminate the degenerate beings around us and clean our environments.
