My Thoughts After Reading “Giving Speeches That Disrupt the Fa Is a Lesson from History”
(Minghui.org) After I read the Minghui Editorial “Giving Speeches That Disrupt the Fa Is a Lesson from History” published on June 22, 2020, and fellow practitioners' sharing articles regarding the situation, my heart ached.
As early as in 2013, it was already stated in Minghui Editorial “Giving Speeches Amounts to Disrupting the Fa,” that, “Though such persons may not be CCP agents or have gone awry after CCP brainwashing, there are CCP agents at work behind the scenes, influencing things.”
Master Li (the founder) made it very clear to us in the recent Fa teaching that people who follow the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) to do evil would be met with consequences. For those who disrupted the Fa and those who followed them, participated in information dissemination, or paid close attention to their talks, are putting themselves in grave danger, if they fail to stop the chaos immediately.
Master also seriously warned:
“Any Dafa disciples who have not been diligent, or who are prone to acting in extreme ways, should immediately straighten themselves out, and sincerely study the Fa and work on themselves, for you are at great risk.” (“Stay Rational,” Team Yellow Translation)
It is not hard to see who is disrupting the Fa and realize that their words and deeds were not normal. As long as we measure things against the Fa, we can clearly identify those who have deviated from and are disrupting the Fa. How could one still follow them, be curious, or pay attention to them?
During my cultivation, I noticed that recognizing my human thinking, attachments, and mistakes was not as hard; the hardest part was to identify and cultivate off impure elements and notions that have formed throughout my life process and are deeply embedded in my character and temperament. They are not only hard to discover but also painful to remove.
Because I am a cultivator, I have to look within unconditionally, however painful it might be. I have to eliminate those elements that were impure and selfish. I also learned during the process that I was not aware that certain thoughts, words, and deeds were controlled and manipulated by those impure elements.
When I realized that, I could then understand the followers of those who disrupt the Fa. As cultivators, we are all clear that if we don’t follow the requirements of Dafa or measure whatever we encounter during our cultivation with the Fa, then our deeply seated notions and habits would use all kinds of excuses or even a part of Fa-teachings to cover up our human hearts and attachments. We might think we are cultivating and doing the three things well, when in fact we are motivated by our attachments that are not purely based on the Fa.
We need to have a clear understanding of the Fa and its requirements of us. It’s also imperative for us to realize how serious the Fa disrupting behavior is and how much damage it could inflict on fellow practitioners as well as to ourselves.
One needs to be on guard to matters of this sort, and pay attention to others' reminders, particularly the notice from Minghui Editorial. Do not let one's human heart, notions, and sentimentality affect one's judgment. Only when we keep a clear mind and keep the Fa in our hearts can we distinguish and refuse those who disrupt the Fa by giving speeches with various rhetoric and methods.
I would like to review the last part of the Minghui Editorial “Giving Speeches That Disrupt the Fa Is a Lesson from History” with fellow practitioners. Paying attention to the warnings is in fact cherishing ourselves and our own cultivation.
“Fa-rectification cultivation has reached the final stage, and time is very pressing. We hope everyone will kindly remind one another not to accommodate evil elements. We Dafa disciples are to achieve what Master wants and be worthy of becoming righteous enlightened beings with the righteous Fa in the new cosmos, rather than people who can be easily swayed by such incitement.
“In fact, in rational settings, we all know that every truly cultivating disciple should truly regard the Fa as the teacher and have the courage to let go of human notions. Only then can we constantly move up. Only by taking the Fa as the teacher will it ensure that we remain diligent, make progress, and make the best use of time to save people.”
