For the First Time, I Shed Tears for Those Evildoers
(Minghui.org) In recent months, I felt increasingly depressed as the U.S. presidential election progressed, with unfavorable news about President Trump emerging one after another.
The United States has always been a beacon of democracy in the world, but now it is different. When the president has a grievance, he has nowhere to appeal. It feels to me that the whole world is controlled by the devil – good people have no place to reason and justice has nowhere to manifest.
I feel a nameless anger towards the evildoers who stole the election and those who enabled the evildoers at all levels. I wanted them to be wiped out by the army immediately so that the whole world would see their retribution.
When I turned on the Falun Dafa exercise music yesterday, somehow the music “Pudu” was turned on. I sensed the boundless compassion in the music and suddenly understood how much Master has been treasuring each and every life in the world, giving them opportunities time and again. With this understanding, I hope all people, be they good or bad, can be awakened and saved. My heart suddenly became so soft and kind, a feeling like never before.
I then felt an inexplicable sadness in my heart when I thought about those evildoers. They were too pitiful, as they carried out evil deeds so ignorantly and fearlessly. What future would be held for them? With this thought, tears ran down my face. My anger toward them was gone. There was only one hope that Master can give them a little more time, so that those poor ignorant people can quickly wake up and not be eliminated as history progresses.
After this incident, my heart became much calmer. When I saw and heard the news of the U.S. election again, whether it was positive or negative, I no longer had the emotional reaction like before. I knew it was Master who removed those substances for me. I also realized that during the U.S. election, my attachments surfaced and I forgot to look within. Master was merciful and enlightened me with the music of “Pudu” to make me realize my problems and remove those bad things for me. Thank you, Master!
Master told us:
“The goal of practice for a Dafa disciple is spiritual perfection.”
“Though a battle between good and evil is taking place, you have to ensure that you do not let it negatively affect you, and should do even better at getting the truth out and saving people.” (“Greetings to the Taiwan Fa Conference,” Team Yellow Translation)
During this presidential election in the United States, we must guard our own minds well and should not be affected no matter what happens. If we find that we are affected, we need to look within and identify and remove our attachments. In the meantime, we should work harder to do the three things well and save more sentient beings.
This is my current understanding; please kindly point out any shortcomings.
