Looking Back on Cultivation: Heart Path—On the Persecution of Lawyer Gao

Recently, there have been reports that Lawyer Gao has been brutally persecuted. Many people shared their understandings on this. Here I would like to share my view.

Yesterday, Clearwisdom.net published some practitioners' articles on this issue. I have similar feeling as them.

Who are we? How should we view this? What is the root cause of this persecution?

I think we need to think about this seriously. We came here from high levels, and the purpose of our coming here was to save sentient beings. We have experienced many accomplishments in the past, as well as owed many karmic debts.

At this critical moment, we should play our roles well. We cannot rely on an everyday person to help us. If they help us, it is good for them. But we cannot count on them to help us; otherwise, it makes things more complicated. When the evil sees our attachments, they may persecute both Lawyer Gao and Dafa practitioners more brutally because of it. If so, aren’t our attachments being taken advantage of?

If we are still unable to recognize our attachments, this will put greater burden on Lawyer Gao and other people. After so many years validating the Fa, we should be clear that when we are counting on something or someone in society, there will be problems. The reason is that in this way we can recognize our attachments and let go of them.

At all times, we should be clear that we are playing the leading role. We can no longer treat things with human notions. Instead, we should view all these rationally based on the Fa.
