The “Zero-Out Campaign” Is an Opportunity to Eliminate Attachments
(Minghui.org) The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is conducting its so-called “Zero-out campaign” [a concerted effort to force every single practitioner on the government's blacklists to renounce Falun Dafa]. The persecution in different areas is carried out to varying degrees.
The Fa-rectification has now reached the final stretch. We should have higher requirements for our own cultivation and be moving away from humanness.
The closer to the surface dimension, the stronger the old force’s interference. Our subtle human mentalities and attachments can become an excuse the old forces use to harass and persecute us. The CCP has its own agenda and conducts the Zero-out campaign. But shouldn't we use it as an opportunity to eliminate our attachments?
In the campaign, practitioners are told to write a so-called guarantee statement to give up practicing Falun Dafa. It seems like the usual persecution. From a practitioners' perspective, isn't this a test to see whether we are steadfast in believing in Dafa? Can we remain clear regarding the principles of cultivation during Fa-rectification? Do we send righteous thoughts enough? Are they effective?
We follow the principles of Dafa. Our cultivation criteria have nothing to do with the old forces. But we cannot hang on to human mentalities as there are fewer chances to step away from them.
We should not cooperate with the CCP personnel, but instead clarify the truth to save them. This approach, however, is passive. We don’t need to wait for them to contact us as part of the persecution. As practitioners we should deny the persecution.
If we think of the words, “Zero-out”, isn't it time for us to eliminate our attachments, especially the fundamental ones? We should examine ourselves and see if we truly believe in Dafa. Do we still have lust and desire, and attachments to fame, personal interest, and emotion? We should pro-actively cultivate ourselves and pay attention to each thought—this way we cannot be dragged down by the old forces.
Whatever pressure or challenges we face, we should use them to eliminate our fundamental attachments and to keep saving people. That is completely denying all the old forces' arrangements. As long as we are in line with Dafa, keep up with it, and act righteously, Master will help us.
Let's conduct our own “Zero-out” campaign. Let’s look within and eliminate our human mindsets and attachments!
