My Understanding of the Editorial “We Must Know and Be Clearheaded about Our Principles and Fundamentals”
(Minghui.org) Before the Minghui Editorial “We Must Know and Be Clearheaded about our Principles and Fundamentals” came out, I believed that the general election was just a matter of ordinary human politics and that we should just take the elections lightly and not be concerned with them.
However, the editorial mentions that this U.S. election is a battle between good and evil, and that Trump has been “chosen by the divine to return to tradition and disintegrate the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).” It is true that we should not pin our hopes on ordinary people to end the persecution. At the same time, if Trump is the choice of the divine, then, although we do not participate in ordinary people’s politics, it is my understanding that it is our duty and part of our mission as Dafa disciples to protect the choice of the divine and not to allow the specter of communism to take power in the United States. Doing so may have a direct impact on how many more sentient beings can be saved.
Perhaps the old forces capitalized on our perception of this event as just human affairs that have nothing to do with us, and our lack of concern for this cosmic event gave them the opening to cause the fraud to happen. Since the elections are not over yet, perhaps we can make up for it by taking this as an opportunity to elevate in cultivation, get rid of our human notions, and send strong righteous thoughts to eliminate the communist specter and prevent it from taking power in the U.S.
This may also be a good opportunity for us Western practitioners to be more clearheaded about communism and its influence in the West. Those of us who haven’t done so might benefit from reading the book How the Specter of Communism Is Ruling Our World on The Epoch Times website.
The above is just my understanding. Please point out anything inappropriate.
