Thoughts Arising From Chinese vs. Western Tooth-Pulling
In Zhuan Falun, Master contrasts Chinese vs. Western modes of pulling teeth. It became clear to me from this, that, in our truth-clarification today, we should change the notions of everyday people from their roots, and should not focus all our attention on the phenomena that are apparent in this dimension. In the course of doing anything, first, remove all evil barriers. Then, construct the "cause" in other dimensions and bring about the "effect" with our actions in the human dimension. This way naturally makes things easy and smooth, just like "…[a matchstick is] used to pull a tooth with only a little contact." (from Zhuan Falun) If excessive attention is given to the phenomena apparent in this dimension, one will be entangled in everyday people's habits and make everyday people's efforts, which do not bring good results. It is like Western dental practice, which requires a great deal of effort aided with hammers and drills, causing a lot of blood loss.
