Enlightenment from Memorizing the Fa
(Minghui.org) I had a strong feeling when I memorized “Qigong is Cultivation Practice” in Lecture One of Zhuan Falun, the main book of Falun Gong. I felt that humans are humble and insignificant while divine beings are confident, easygoing, and great. I read this section again and further realized that everything in our life is prearranged and they are in the hands of the divine.
The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is against spiritual belief, especially during the crazed period of the Cultural Revolution. It destroyed temples and burned Buddhist scriptures. However, Heaven has arranged to use qigong to pave the path for people to cultivate and return to their true selves.
The cultivation atmosphere was grim at that time. As Master said in Lecture One of Zhuan Falun, qigong “first appeared in the middle of the Cultural Revolution, by the end of which it reached its peak of popularity.”
People's arrogance is actually ignorance. Some people thought that they have the ability and power to manipulate others, but they are nothing at all.
“Though the wish of those qigong masters to promote qigong was good and they intended to help the general public heal illnesses, maintain fitness, and improve their physical condition—how great that would be—it would not be allowed.” (Qigong is Cultivation Practice, Lecture One, Zhuan Falun 2014)
Humans are very pitiful. Before divine wisdom, anything a man has is nothing but child's play. This again reminded me of what Master taught us.
“Humans want to do things in such-and-such way, they want to develop in such-and-such way, and they want society to reach a certain state—humans want to call all the shots. Yet up to this day humans have never been in charge....” (Teaching the Fa at the Conference in Europe)
Enlightened by this Fa teaching, I let go of a big human notion, which was a long-time attachment to current circumstances. I was attached to the news of the current regime and foreign governments. Every day, I only paid attention to headlines of breaking stories on Dynaweb but did not read the contents. My mood was greatly affected by the news, even though I fully understood that everything is in Master's hands.
Now, I understand that with the changing of the cosmic climate, the current situation is just humanity's performance, where each life is in place. My duty is to cultivate myself well to save more people. I mustn't be confused anymore, and must quickly rectify myself.
I also realize that in order to effectively clarify the truth, the message must align with the thoughts of today's people. Only if issues are presented in line with their concepts can people be convinced. For example, I have used cell phones with more than two minutes of recorded messages about the importance of withdrawing from the Chinese Communist Party and its affiliated organizations, but the effect was not very good for quite a while.
Some people might have heard the message several times. Some already understood the facts and knew the evil nature of the CCP, but they wanted to consider their own gain first before doing anything. Some did not believe what they heard. Some even scolded me for telling them about catastrophes that might portend bad luck for them.
I recently changed the preliminary greeting. Now it starts with, “You might have heard that if you quit the CCP you will be saved. This is true. Very soon, you will witness disaster to punish evil. Heaven will punish bad people. Those who can make it through the disaster will be blessed. My call is in hopes that you can witness blessings in the future.”
This new message is a call to blessings. Those who receive the message feel that they can avoid imminent catastrophe if they seize this opportunity to denounce the CCP. The message is in line with their thoughts, and the results are much better. Many people have quit the CCP.
