Letting Go of Hatred Against the Chinese Communist Party
(Minghui.org) I have been following the news, particularly when it comes to the China-US trade war, in The Epoch Times and on New Tang Dynasty TV. I was fascinated and happy to see that the American government was finally seeing through and calling out the rogue behavior of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP)!
“Cosmic forces are helping as well, as was sure to happen, for things have to go this way.” (“2018 NTD and Epoch Times Fa Conference”)
“The communist specter’s existence no longer has much significance, so it’s about time that it was eliminated.” (“2018 NTD and Epoch Times Fa Conference”)
While I was feeling elated for the downfall of the Party, I realized that I had a strong attachment to reading online news. Why was I obsessed with online news? The root cause was my hatred of the Party. I wanted to see the disintegration of the CCP because of its cruel persecution of Falun Dafa practitioners.
During this time, my health began to deteriorate due to my poor xinxing. I could not let go of my hatred. When I sent righteous thoughts in the past regarding this attachment, it was not effective.
Now, I have a new understanding. I should let go of the strong attachment of hatred and deep resentment, no matter the cause. As a practitioner, having this attachment is against the Way of the universe. I must achieve Dafa's standard and follow the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.
I should deal with this problem from a high level and truly let go of my attachments. From the Fa, we know that the CCP is only a tool used by the old forces to test practitioners. When it is no longer needed, it will be destroyed.
“You may know that when steel is smelted there is more that goes into the furnace than just iron ore: there is also charcoal. And without it, steel can’t be smelted.” (“2018 Fa Teaching Given in Washington, D.C.”)
If we truly understand the Fa principles, we will no longer have hatred in our heart.
