Eliminate the Attachment to Popular Music
(Minghui.org) I feel that if we do not pay attention to small attachments, it may affect our cultivation and our efforts to save sentient beings.
Yesterday while I was sending righteous thoughts, I suddenly saw a black symbol in my dimensional field. It looked like an elongated comma. I grabbed it and tried to destroy it with my gong. But no matter how hard I tried I couldn't eliminate it. I realized that this thing was generated by one of my attachments.
I felt that the black symbol looked like a musical note. I then understood that this was caused by my attachment to popular music. As soon as I identified my attachment, the black symbol disintegrated.
“Don't use anything from these times of the Despot, for inside they are brimming with evil; mankind has been controlled by demons during this period.” (“Teaching the Fa at the Meeting on Writing Music” Teaching the Fa at the Discussion on Writing Music and Creating Fine Art)
Although some songs seem to have no negative factors, the singer, the composer, the performer, or the tune are most likely imbued with negative substances. These are hard to identify. Even if they don't obviously have negative elements, almost all everyday people's music is filled with emotion, and there are also many impure factors. As Falun Dafa practitioners, we should remove any obsession with popular music.
