My Understanding of Master’s New Poem and the U.S. Election: Send Righteous Thoughts to Eliminate the Evil
(Minghui.org) Master published his new poem “On the General Election” on November 8, 2020. It's been many years since he published his writings for the world's people, and this shows how significant the 2020 U.S Presidential election is.
I became more sure of my understanding of the U.S election after reading the Minghui editorial, “We Must Know and Be Clearheaded about Our Principles and Fundamentals”. I would like to share my thoughts with you. Please correct me if my understanding is not aligned with the Fa.
In a nation that prides itself on upholding democracy and freedom, large scale fraud has been reported in the 2020 U.S. election. The American media has participated in in this collusion. The United States of America is a beacon of freedom, equality and democracy in the world, and who leads the country is of utmost importance.
Although we don’t rely on any one person, having an environment that is conducive to saving sentient beings is vital. President Trump passed laws to ensure religious belief, and he also met with Falun Dafa practitioners and other groups who were persecuted in China. His team said the CCP is the common enemy of the world.
For these reasons, I have been following the U.S election rather closely right from the beginning. I know that this is a battle between good and evil.
Making the Right Choice
I asked my grandson who is a university student: “Who do you think will become the next U.S president?” He asked me, “What has this got to do with me?” I told him solemnly, “It matters because the U.S. is the international police. If a bad person holds power, he can destroy the nation. The CCP will take advantage and shift its authoritarian ways to the U.S., and then to the rest of the world.”
I was glad when I saw Trump leading in the polls on November 4. I wanted to tell my grandson the good news, but then realized I shouldn’t be moved by things happening in the world. I must not get carried away. A day later, my grandson told me the democratic candidate had overtaken Trump in the polls. My initial reaction was, “This is a conspiracy.” I immediately checked the news on the Internet and indeed things had turned around overnight. I realized the severity of the matter.
“...what is a Buddha? "Tathagata" is what human beings call someone who’s come with the truth and the power to do what he wants, whereas real Buddhas are guardians of the cosmos and are responsible for all righteous elements in the cosmos.” (“Teaching the Fa at the Western U.S. Fa Conference”, Guiding the Voyage)
I sat down and sent righteous thoughts. Master’s poem “Vastness” came to mind: “Infinitely distant is Heaven’s vault, But with just one thought ‘tis right before the eye” (Hong Yin)
The U.S. is thousands of miles from China, but we form one body. “We must eradicate all evil that damages Dafa, disintegrating all of the dark minions and rotten demons, destroying all elements of the Communist evil specter and all the evil factors of the Chinese Communist Party in other dimensions, encompassing all of it and leaving out none.” (Editorial: The Essentials to Sending Forth Righteous Thoughts and the Schedule for Sending Forth Righteous Thoughts at Set Times Around the World (Update 2)
As I sent righteous thoughts, the energy field never felt so powerful before. I felt an immense energy rushing upwards from my lower back above my head. I was able to remain very focused while eliminating the evil. I knew Master was encouraging me. I had done the right thing.
The next day, when a practitioner came to visit me, I told her I sent righteous thoughts for the U.S election. She said she had a different understanding. I did not continue to share my thoughts, as I was afraid she would think this was getting involved in politics.
The U.S election is not a contest between humans or political parties. It is a fight between good and evil, right and wrong, those who hold onto traditions and those who seek to destroy them. The book “How The Specter of Communism is Ruling Our World” clearly explains how the communist specter has been corroding America for more than a century in the areas of economy, politics, culture and so on. We must maintain a clear mind and do everything we should and can do to stop this.
Let us choose the path decided by the divine and choose President Trump. The present chaos and difficulty are only temporary. This is a great opportunity to expose the evil factors.
I would also like to express gratitude to practitioners working on the front lines in media outlets. You have worked tirelessly to provide up to date and reliable news to keep people informed of the truth.
