Salvation Can't Be Bargained For
(Minghui.org) I'm writing this article to remind fellow practitioners that salvation can't be bargained for—we cannot act against Dafa's requirements or follow everyday people. How they behave and what they say are for our elevation; we shouldn't be easily influenced.
This sharing is based on my understanding of what I have seen in other dimensions. It is limited to my cultivation level; it doesn't represent the absolute truth.
With the Great Law of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, the creator created the colossal firmament. Pervading all levels from top to bottom, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance sustains and regulates all life and matter.
Lives and matter aren't as pure at the lower levels. Such impurity may manifest itself as some people trying to take shortcuts or trying to bargain to obtain salvation—treating it as something similar to their everyday interests.
In the face of truth, they don't accept nor assimilate to Dafa. They want to strike a deal to get the benefits of Dafa without making a fundamental change in themselves. This won't work. Trades and bribes will not help the person assimilate to the Fa, either.
I have seen this in other dimensions: Beings who used to assist the evil to persecute Dafa for their own gains now want to woo Dafa practitioners into their group. They, too, now know “Dafa disciples are the sole hope for people’s salvation.” (“The Only Hope” from Hong Yin III)
They think that having Dafa disciples in their group will help them collectively enter the future. But they don't know that they can only gain salvation and return to their paradises by believing in Dafa and assimilating to Dafa. Getting Dafa practitioners' endorsements or associating with them isn't the key.
I see in other dimensions that Dafa disciples who do well in their cultivation carry with them a schoolbag and are dressed in robes, studying in college. Those beings that I mentioned above want to win Dafa disciple's support, so that they can hold onto their own interests and enter the future without truly supporting Dafa.
In other dimensions, such wooing manifests as these beings smearing practitioners' clothes and schoolbags with oil. Their degenerate acts cannot in the least save themselves, but only harm Dafa disciples who were lacking in righteous thoughts. The damage manifests as Dafa disciples' clothes and papers being contaminated in other dimensions.
As practitioners, we should be clear at all times on the key factor for salvation: supporting or assimilating to the Fa. Our indulging ordinary people against our principles or quid pro quo will not help them or ourselves.
