Lesson Learned after Watching CCP TV Series
(Minghui.org) Many articles that document the harm caused by watching the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) TV programs have been published on the Minghui website. I really agreed with them and felt like I had an even deeper understanding of the evil nature of these TV series.
However, I could not completely stop watching those programs. I didn't watch TV frequently, but at times I would get interested in a series and end up watching the whole season in one sitting.
I recently became interested in a TV series that was very popular a long time ago. As I watched it, I expressed my disdain for it: “This is basically just promoting the Party's philosophy of violent revolution by appealing to one's sense of patriotism. The CCP is basically a killing regime with no sense of humanity. They use modern marketing techniques, like creating great looking scenes to attract and deceive the Chinese people, who are brainwashed by watching it without even noticing. That is simply frightening!”
I was so proud of myself for being able to analyze it so clearly. That night I watched the last episode and then went to bed very contented.
The next morning when I was doing the meditation, I suddenly felt like I’d entered a dark space that was rotating very fast. I could not open my eyes because as soon as I did, everything was spinning. I knew the situation was bad, but it was too late. I felt everything in my stomach was flowing down like great waves, and as if, in the next moment, I would lose consciousness. I felt I was at the moment before death.
At that critical moment, I used the only bit of consciousness I had left to yell inside of me, “Master, please help me! I'm in trouble! Master, help me! I'm in trouble!”
Instantly, I felt a large hand carry me in its palm out of that dark, spinning space. It was as if everything stopped, and time was frozen.
I opened my eyes and fell on the bed. All my clothes were soaked with sweat.
Master Li truly saved my life! I was very frightened, so I immediately negated the persecution and then looked within. I had thought that I was a very diligent disciple and always did things according to Master's requirements.
Even when I went on vacation, I always took truth-clarification materials with me to distribute. But I've always had this shortcoming of watching CCP TV series.
At that time, even though my body returned to normal, I still had diarrhea and could not eat.
Although I found my shortcoming, I was still a little unwilling to admit it. I thought, “I wasn't moved by the TV series and wasn't affected by it. I just wanted to see how absurd and how funny they are. Is that really serious?”
The old forces tried to take my life because of it!
“Though he may be quite decent himself, his students are not righteous and have possession by different spirits or animals—all kinds of them.
“If you really want to practice cultivation in Falun Dafa, you should not go and listen to them.” (Zhuan Falun)
I was shocked. Wasn't that referring to me? On the surface, I was quite righteous. I did not allow myself to be brainwashed by the series, even though I was watching them. But my field was not righteous anymore because of it. The beings in my dimensions were affected by it. My organs were affected by it. I was so selfish. I had stopped thinking about the beings in my world and allowed them to suffer just to fulfill my own desire!
The fact is, it doesn't take a lot for a human body to go wrong. The failure of one organ could end one's life! There have indeed been cases where a practitioner went to the hospital due to diarrhea and passed away.
As soon as I enlightened to this Fa principle, just at that very instant, the diarrhea stopped. It was truly like Master said:
“When disciples have ample righteous thoughtsMaster has the power to turn back the tide”(“The Master-Disciple Bond” from Hong Yin Vol. II)
This experience was very unnerving. I want to remind other practitioners who watch CCP TV: Do not take this lightly, as it can truly end a practitioner's life. Cultivation is so serious. If we do not treasure the time that Master has extended for us for to help save sentient beings, then we risk destroying this precious opportunity.
This is just my personal understanding. If anything is inappropriate, please kindly point it out.
