Some Thoughts After Reading “The Ultimate Goal of Communism”
(Minghui.org) The Epoch Times published the book series, “The Ultimate Goal of Communism,” and it was republished in Chinese on Minghui.org. Because I thought I had a deep understanding of communism, I only gave it a quick scan and didn’t really read it.
Another practitioner recently suggested that I read it carefully, because he believed that it would help me with a project I was involved in. So I did.
After I read about one third of the book, I became very sleepy. After a one-hour nap, I resumed reading, and then my heart felt uncomfortable, as though it was about to jump out of my chest. Even though I could not sit still, I tried to finish the book. When it was the time to send forth righteous thoughts, I stopped reading and sent forth righteous thoughts. My heart still felt uncomfortable. I felt that I could not stay in the room, and I wanted to go outside.
I tried to clear my thoughts. I realized that the pain in my heart might have something to do with the Party culture that I had not completely eliminated within me. So, when I sent forth righteous thoughts, I added this thought: “Completely eliminate all the evil substances and factors in my field that came from the communist specter.”
Sometimes I can see my previous lifetimes, and I know that I was a secretary in the Communist Party’s military. I sent forth righteous thoughts to eliminate the Party’s elements from that lifetime.
After sending forth righteous thoughts, my heart felt fine. I felt energized and calm. I realized that when I started to read the book, the negative communist specter’s factors hidden in my body were awakened. The process of reading that book exposed it and eliminated it. The negative elements were afraid, so they tried to interfere with me. They made me sleepy and caused my heart to feel uncomfortable.
If a practitioner tries to validate the Fa, but he still has Party culture, then the articles he writes, the artwork he creates, or the music he composes, or the paintings he paints, would have the Party’s negative things and radiate them. How could what he creates save people?
“Think about it everyone, humans have karma--you all know this as you're Dafa disciples--and everything that human beings draw or paint includes elements of the artist himself. In an artist's work, everything about that individual and about the person being portrayed is attached to that painting. When an ordinary person paints just one stroke, I know what kind of person he is, what kind of illnesses he has, how much karma he has, his state of mind, his family situation, etc. And all the thoughts the subject of the painting has and all of the factors associated with his body are fully displayed as well, including how much karma he has. Whenever someone hangs a painting of that person in his home, the karma of that person in the painting emits from the painting. So when someone hangs something like that in his home, is he benefiting or being harmed? Karma emits and spreads, it's connected with the person, and it will continuously emit in the home of the person who has hung up the painting there. People can't see the interrelationships among objects, but actually they will feel ill at ease [from something like that].” (“Teaching the Fa at the Discussion on Creating Fine Art,” Teaching the Fa at the Discussion on Writing Music and Creating Fine Art)
A cultivator’s thought is a material substance, and it has energy. We must therefore purify ourselves. That way the energy we radiate will be positive and powerful and save sentient beings.
I suggest that all practitioners read this book. This is very important if we want to completely disintegrate any remaining factors from the evil communist specter in our bodies, and strengthen our abilities to save people.
