My Take on the U.S. Election
(Minghui.org) Judging from the current situation of the U.S. presidential election, it seems that the leftists are about to succeed at seizing power. Perhaps some fellow practitioners have slacked off in sending righteous thoughts to eliminate the evil communist specter's interference with the election, while others felt lost and some were discouraged. I think Dafa disciples should not be in this state.
First of all, we must set our hearts right and position our foundation right. We must be clear that this is Fa-rectification reaching to the human realm. As Dafa disciples, we must have 100% faith in Master and we must assist Master 100% in fulfilling what Master wants to achieve. We should not be concerned about when the Fa-rectification in the human world will start, how it will proceed, and how are people tested and saved. Master is in control of everything.
We also should not worry about the Chosen One, what he will do, and which path he walks. In this world, almost all paths leading to great victories are filled with hardships and difficulties.
As the Fa-rectification has progressed to the current stage, there are even stricter xinxing tests for us. We have to catch up with the pace of Fa-rectification. We can’t just remain at a level of perceptual understanding of Dafa like when we first began practicing, hoping that Master would use his power to solve things for us. In fact, this process is for us to improve in cultivation and reach consummation ourselves.
Master told us:
“You should also be clear that “natural” does not exist, and “the inevitable” has reasons behind it. In fact, “natural” is irresponsibly used by everyday people to make excuses for themselves when they are unable to explain the phenomena of the universe, life, and matter. They cannot imagine what “nature” itself is. Under the influence of this kind of notion you think that all these tribulations are inevitable and that this is just the way it is, thereby developing a passive and pessimistic attitude. So your human side must stay aware. More importantly, your side that has attained the Fa must be clear.” (“Expounding on the Fa,” Essentials for Further Advancement)
Master also said,
“Your ways of thinking, your understanding, and your appreciation towards me and Dafa are the product of ordinary human thinking. But what I’m teaching you is in fact moving beyond ordinary humans to a rational, true understanding of Dafa!
“In practicing cultivation, you are not making real, solid progress on your own, which would effect great, fundamental changes internally. Instead, you rely on my power and take advantage of powerful external factors. This can never transform your human nature into Buddha-nature. If every one of you can understand the Fa from the depths of your mind, that will truly be the manifestation of the Fa whose power knows no boundary—the reappearance of the mighty Buddha Fa in the human world!” (“Cautionary Advice,” Essentials for Further Advancement)
The Fa-rectification process is coming to an end. As disciples, we must hurry up and improve our xinxing in accordance with the requirements of the Fa, understand the Fa on the basis of the Fa, cultivate ourselves well, assist Master to rectify the Fa, and cultivate diligently together!
