Walk a Righteous Cultivation Path – My Understanding of Studying “Greetings to the Taiwan Fa Conference”
(Minghui.org) As the fierce battle between good and evil in the U.S. election is still unfolding, Master published the new article “Greetings to the Taiwan Fa Conference,” weeks after the poem “On the General Election.” Both of them have provided clear instructions on what we, Falun Dafa disciples, should do on this matter.
Since the U.S. election took place on November 3, 2020, I have been paying close attention to it. I spent at least half an hour or even longer reading news about it every day, which took much time away that should have been used for my Fa study. I felt angry over the false reports in China (about the election) and grew really worried about what would happen to Trump's re-election bid.
I also sent forth righteous thoughts to support Trump and eliminate the evil beings in other dimensions. But I had a hard time concentrating and calming down. My heart always moved with the situation – I was either elated with positive developments or anxious about negative developments. I just couldn’t maintain the peaceful and tranquil composure of a cultivator and I didn’t know how to do better.
Master’s new article “Greetings to the Taiwan Fa Conference” provided timely guidance for me.
“Dafa is cultivation practice. The purpose of Dafa disciples’ cultivation is to reach consummation.” (“Greetings to the Taiwan Fa Conference,” Team Blue Translation)
For us Dafa disciples, we are cultivators and not ordinary people. This is a fundamental principle. In terms of the battle between good and evil in the U.S. election, it’s only an episode of the Fa-rectification being reflected in the human world. No matter the result, our hearts shouldn’t be moved.
On the other hand, since we are cultivating in the human world, we can’t just be onlookers in the battle between good and evil. We need to send forth righteous thoughts and uphold justice and conscience. When we support Trump in his re-election bid, we are also purging the remaining communist specter in the world. We are using the power of Dafa disciples as a whole to defeat the evil.
The most important thing, in this chaotic world, is that we need to hold our ground and not be interfered with.
“When clarifying the truth, do not place yourselves among ordinary people, and only when you position yourselves well will you not get swept into the chaos, and only then will you do a better job.” (“Greetings to the Taiwan Fa Conference,” Team Blue Translation)
We cultivate ourselves in the battle between good and evil, getting rid of our attachments and human emotions. We remain free of political aspirations in the political upheaval. We support Trump but aren’t attached to him. This is truly another precious opportunity for us to cultivate ourselves.
