Let's Stop Placing Our Hopes in Everyday People
(Minghui.org) Ever since the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) launched the persecution of Falun Gong in July 1999, some practitioners have been clinging to their human thinking by hoping that one day some leaders or organizations in everyday society would help end our ordeal. As I see it, such thinking is a reflection of those practitioners’ lack of faith in Master and Dafa.
Master told us clearly in “Teaching the Fa at the 2002 Fa Conference in Philadelphia, U.S.A: “I've said before that the evil won't stop persecuting even right up until the very end. Even if it's going to end tomorrow, today that evil will still do evil just the same. That's the way things are in the cosmos before the Fa-rectification is done rectifying it. Without going through Fa-rectification it won't become good on its own--how could it turn good without Fa-rectification? Poison is just poisonous, and if you want it to stop being poisonous it can't do that. So when you look at it that way, we shouldn't have any fantasies about the evil forces and those evil people who are persecuting Dafa.”
“As I've said, everything that happens today in the ordinary society is the result of Dafa disciples' thoughts. Even though the old forces do exist, if you don't have those thoughts they can't do anything. When your righteous thoughts are strong enough the old forces can't do a thing. If someone in ordinary society really did restore our Dafa's name, think about it, maybe human beings will do this, but have you thought about this: how high would I have to position that person? Isn't that right? You're cultivators, and all changes come from your cultivation and the Fa-rectification; everything that you yourselves validate and enlighten to, and everything that you'll receive, all this comes from what you have done on your path. Absolutely don't think about any favors the old forces might do for us, or about how the ordinary society might help us. You are the ones saving the ordinary people's society, and you are the ones saving sentient beings!”
We’ve experienced too many lessons which exposed our human hearts during the past 14 years of the Fa-rectification period. Some of them include: The CCP's 16th Congress, the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympics and the CCP's 18th Congress.
The new generation of CCP leaders have been at their posts for several months, yet we see no changes when it comes to the persecution of Falun Gong. The regime is still suppressing Falun Gong, defaming our compassionate and revered Master and deceiving those who do not know the truth about Dafa. Moreover, numerous practitioners are still suffering in prisons, labor camps, drug rehabilitation centers, brainwashing centers and mental hospitals.
Why haven’t we sobered up from these persecution facts? Why haven’t we seen through the CCP's evil nature? Why haven’t we become more rational, mature and clearheaded?
Do we have to wait until the end of Fa-rectification to let go of our human hearts?
Master warned us in “Teaching the Fa at the 2003 Midwest-U.S. Fa Conference,”
“We're too dependent on human beings. If human beings were to end the persecution, what a disgrace that would be to Dafa disciples! We wouldn't have validated the Fa, we wouldn't have established mighty virtue in the persecution, and our Dafa disciples wouldn't have blazed their own path. I've said that this path is to be left for the future. Then isn't this matter critical? That's how the old forces have been able to take advantage of the gaps. You placed your hopes in ordinary people, so the old forces had the resolution that they sponsored voted down. And as you kept putting your hopes in ordinary people they made it so that your resolution couldn't even be raised and so that the U.S. was kicked out of the Human Rights Commission. You still placed your hopes in ordinary people, so they made a country that violates human rights the chair. We should become more rational by learning from these lessons. We've gone through so much, and through these lessons we should gradually get clearheaded.”
I think we will end up with nothing if we depend on ordinary people or some Communist leaders to do us any favors. Why? Master made it clear that it is impossible to position ordinary people that high and bestow them with mighty virtue. The standards of Fa-rectification will not allow any CCP members to end the persecution. The principle of good and evil receiving their due retribution will also not tolerate the unpardonable crimes committed by the CCP. The facts are clear. There is no way that the communist regime would voluntarily stop the persecution on its own.
We have to be clear that no matter what superficial changes the CCP happens to be promoting, its evil nature will never change. As Master said, poison is just poisonous.
I believe that we, as the main characters of what is playing out in today's world, have the responsibility to bring the changes. As long as we treat the Fa as teacher, maintain righteous thoughts and do the three things well, we will soon be able to stop the persecution.
I urge those who still harbor fantasies about the CCP to wake up soon. Stop counting on ordinary people, especially the communist regime, to help us. Each and every one of us is fully capable of unlocking our righteous thoughts to assist Master with Fa-rectification and fulfilling our historic vow to validate the Fa and save sentient beings.
I hope we can all do well with what we are supposed to do, which is the hope of all sentient beings.
