(Minghui.org) As the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) virus in Taiwan continues to spread, many companies have asked their employees to work in shifts, as per the government requirements to stop the disease from spreading. My workplace is no exception, and I have been told to work at home.

Initially, I thought this was a good idea because my wife is not a practitioner and works in the retail industry. She comes in contact with all kinds of people, and I worried that if she was found to have been in close contact with one of the positive cases, I would be classified as a potential transmitter. This would affect my work and a project I am involved in.

To cooperate with the government’s measures to curb the spread of the CCP virus, I avoid leaving the house and wear a mask outside.

However, as the days spent locked up at home have increased and the CCP virus shows no signs of slowing its spread, our lives seem to be shrouded in fear. I heard a practitioner share that, influenced by his non-practitioner family members who are afraid of being infected, his mind became unsteady. He too worried that he had contracted the virus.

Master said,

“But a pandemic like the current “CCP Virus” (Wuhan Pneumonia) has come with a purpose and with a target. It has come to eliminate the followers of the evil Party and those who go along with the evil CCP.” (“Rationality”)

I should know from Master’s teachings why this pandemic happened. Therefore, why should I be worried? Isn’t this fear? As a Dafa disciple, shouldn’t I save people with righteous thoughts? Even if I am not afraid of catching the virus, I shouldn’t see things like an ordinary person and be influenced by them.

Master also said,

“Genuine Dafa disciples all carry energy and are themselves beings who eliminate karma and eradicate germs. They are the envoys of salvation at the end times, and they all know to be rational in saving people and clarifying the truth.”(“Rationality”)

We cooperate with the government, wearing masks and going out less frequently to conform to everyday society and be understood by non-practitioners. Everyday people are scared because they cannot see the future. Practitioners, however, should be clear that they are working towards consummation by cultivating diligently. How can we be worried like ordinary people?

I realized I still lack faith in Master and Dafa.

Master said,

“As true practitioners, we should look at issues from a very high level instead of from the perspective of everyday people. Should you believe that you are ill, this may really cause you to become ill. This is because once you think that you are ill, your xinxing level will be as high as that of everyday people. Qigong practice and true cultivation will not lead to illness, particularly under this condition. It is known that what actually causes people to become ill is seventy percent psychological and thirty percent physical.” (Lecture Six, Zhuan Falun)

“As a practitioner, if you always think that it is an illness, you are actually asking for it. If you ask for an illness, it will come inside your body. As a practitioner, your xinxing level should be high. You should not always worry that it is an illness, for this fear of illness is an attachment and it can bring you trouble just the same.” (Lecture Six, Zhuan Falun)

There was a report in the Epoch Times newspaper about a young girl who had to self isolate at home because she came into contact with a positive case. She got scared and began to develop symptoms. When her mother shared understandings with a positive attitude with her and helped her assess the situation rationally, her symptoms disappeared. Isn’t this what Master said in Zhuan Falun, that illness is 70 percent psychological and 30 percent physical?

If I am scared of being infected by the virus, aren’t I pursuing it? Master’s teachings reminded me that, as a Dafa disciple assisting Master in Fa-rectification, I should only be thinking of saving people and not become attached to the pandemic.

Please kindly point out if there is anything wrong with my understandings. Thank you, Master. Thank you, fellow practitioners.
