On Jiang Re-appearing
(Clearwisdom.net) The chief criminal of persecuting Falun Gong, Jiang, was said to be brain dead or near death a while ago, but appeared on October 9, the 100-year anniversary of the 1911 Revolution. Although we do not know if the CCP used an actor or if it was really Jiang, some web users were surprised and disappointed. Predictably, the Internet censors in China have taken out any reference to this on Chinese blogs and chats.
News of Jiang allegedly having died started spreading on July 6, 2011, initially carried by Asian TV stations in Hong Kong, Korean TV, Shandong Province's government website, and Japanese Sankei Shinbun. Although the English Xinhua News Agency published an announcement to deny it, it did not stop many Chinese people around the world from celebrating.
There were lots of discussions about whether Jiang was truly dead or not, but people openly showed their disgust towards Jiang and rejoiced at this news, a rare event in Chinese history. They didn't forget Jiang's crimes against his own people, and their reaction amounted to a verdict in the court of conscience.
Once I saw a story online, about how a person of faith saw so much violence and injustice in society, and prayed for these things to stop. When he saw no reaction, it seemed to him that Heaven was ignoring his prayers. Later this person realized that evil will indeed be punished by divine law, but not in human ways. Just like what the ancient Chinese said, “It is not that there is no retribution, only that it is not time yet.”
Speaking from a cultivator's standpoint, why have the old forces used Jiang's reappearance to test Dafa disciples? Is it because we still have lots of human attachments and reacted inappropriately? Is it because there are still some fellow disciples who have failed to step out of humanness and gave the old forces a gap to manipulate in order to destroy more sentient beings? If each one of us cultivators can look inside,
“Remove your human thoughts
and evil will naturally die out”
