Letting Go of the Attachment to the U.S. Election
(Minghui.org) After the U.S. election result was finalized, my mother, who is also a Falun Dafa practitioner, became very upset. She couldn’t understand why Trump, as nice as he is, would end up losing the election and why wasn’t there any miracles?
Master taught us,
“Many monks later on were not enlightened at Sakyamuni’s level, to the thinking in his realm of thought, to the real meaning of his professed Dharma, or to the actual meaning of what he said.” (Lecture One, Zhuan Falun, 2000 Translation Version)
“Many people do not understand the genuine meaning of what those high-level people have said, and neither do they understand the realm or mindset of those people at high levels and in lofty realms.” (Lecture Nine, Zhuan Falun, 2000 Translation Version)
I shared with my mother that in my understanding, because Master Li (the founder) is rectifying the Fa right now, everything is arranged based on what’s needed in Fa-rectification. What we need to do is to continue doing the three things well and save more people. We shouldn’t be interfered with by our own frantic thoughts. Although we may think that what we had hoped for was good – to uphold justice in the human world, it’s still human thoughts after all. How can we know or understand what the divine is thinking? Humans cannot tell the divine what to do.
On the other hand, if any miracle had happened, then the illusion in this world would have been broken and Fa-rectification would have come to an end immediately.
Whatever the case, the great elimination has already started. We should even more so make the best use of the remaining time to save people and cherish the time extended by Master with His unimaginable endurance.
We watched Master’s lecture video to the Australian practitioners in August 2007 and my mother felt much better.
From a human's perspective, it may seem daunting to disintegrate the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and so practitioners have placed a lot of emphasis on ending the persecution soon. But in the eyes of the divine, maybe it just takes a wave of his hand to eliminate the CCP. Maybe disintegrating the CCP or ending the persecution isn’t that important in the eyes of the divine. What’s more important is to reach the requirements of the Fa-rectification and save more people. For us, we should also let go of the attachment to the U.S. election or how long Fa-rectification will still last.
Above is my personal understanding. I welcome practitioners point out anything improper.
