(Minghui.org) Two months after the U.S. general election took place, it seems the final result is yet to be decided. While many practitioners hold different understandings about this, but I enlightened that this is the final process of the Fa-rectification arranged by Master.
It is my understanding of Master’s teachings that fundamentally speaking, we cultivate towards Consummation by completely negating the old forces.
Master said in “On Dafa”:
“Through cultivation his moral character will elevate, and once he has learned to discern what is truly good from evil, and virtue from vice, and he goes beyond the human plane, he will see and gain access to the realities of the universe as well as the lives of other planes and dimensions.” (Zhuan Falun, 2014 Translation Version)
I understand that before reaching Consummation, Dafa disciples must be able to correctly distinguish good from evil, and virtue from vice. On the issue of the U.S. election, many of us appear biased and seem to take support for Trump or his opponent as the standard for distinguishing good from evil, and have lost sight of what Dafa tells us:
“Zhen-Shan-Ren is the Sole Criterion to Discern Good and Bad People” (Zhuan Falun, 2014 Translation Version)
Dafa disciples have no enemies. No matter what political party people are affiliated with, whether they are left or right, we must appropriately and rationally tell them the facts of what is good and what is evil, so that they can choose for themselves. That's how we cultivate during the Fa-rectification period. Of course, the evil will also take advantage of the opportunity to mess things up, use our attachments and human hearts to interfere with us, tie practitioners down to trivial worldly affairs, and finally prevent us from transcending beyond the human realm.
The final progress of Fa-rectification may also be the final test of Dafa disciples and opportunity for us to establish ourselves. Dafa disciples will always safeguard Dafa. Only when we use Dafa as our standard to save people and correct things will we not get lost and be able to fulfill what Master wants.
Master is providing salvation to all. So we should also be compassionate to all people in the world, regardless of their political affiliation. We should bear the hope for all people to understand the truth, and it’s a real pity when people can’t understand or refuse to accept the truth. But for us, we just try our best to spread the information and it’s up to the Fa to make the final judgment.
Dafa disciples inside China have been compassionately saving those who participated in the persecution, which is somewhat relevant to the truth-clarification by overseas practitioners to people with a different political view. While practitioners in China harbor no hatred toward their perpetrators, practitioners outside of China should also cultivate compassion and forbearance toward those who have different views than us. We should just clarify the truth to everyone without any discrimination so that their knowing sides revere Dafa and they have the equal opportunity to be saved by the Fa.
It is our mission to assist Master in rectifying the Fa and saving people. It’s also a precious opportunity given by Master to fulfill ourselves and become the enlightened beings of the future cosmos. We should focus on our real purpose on earth and not get sidetracked by worldly affairs.
Dafa disciples should always look at things from the perspective of the Fa and strive to be particles of Dafa. I hope with my sharing we can all elevate our cultivation levels together.
