Understandings on Life: On Conscience

PureInsight | February 28, 2010

[PureInsight.org] Some people who consider themselves conscientious have often asked me, “You have been talking about ‘an unprecedented karmic relationship’ or ‘a long period of waiting.’ Why do you think one has to agree with Falun Gong to be considered righteous?”

I always smile upon hearing these types of questions. I think to myself, “This is similar to an example that, one plus one equals two. But in this case, two does not necessarily come from the sum of one and one.”

Conscience is a manifestation of morality. It is the criteria one uses to evaluate the unfairness in society. When a person does not meet the prevailing moral level, he is considered to not have a conscience. Whether someone studies Falun Gong or not depends on their karmic relationship and personal choice. Nobody should force or demand someone to do it.

Through the years, Falun Gong practitioners have been clarifying the truth and revealing the vicious nature of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) to people, despite the risk of arrest, beating, and even persecution to death. Why do we do this? We just want to awaken the conscience inside of you.

Practitioners just want to become better people. However, they have been severely persecuted for it; families have been separated, practitioners have been brutally beaten, their organs have been harvested for profit, and many have even been persecuted to death. When seeing all these things happening, if one's heart remains cold or numb, where is their conscience?

We do not want a single penny from you, nor are we dragging you to become a practitioner. We just hope you can understand the situation and really differentiate right from wrong. Maybe you are thinking, “Even if I quit the vicious CCP, that does not change much since the situation in China does not allow me to help you more.” In fact, what gods pay attention to is one's heart. Those with a conscience and a high moral level will be blessed and given a good, long-lasting future. Imagine that when the vicious CCP is persecuting this group of practitioners who are pursuing a higher moral standard, what destiny will they deserve? It is a heavenly law that righteousness prevails over evil, which has been repeatedly seen throughout history. In the face of this persecution, suppose someone remains numb and silent in order to protect themselves, or even dares not think about right or wrong when blindly following the CCP. Where can we find a conscience in such a person? Aren’t they acquiescing or to some extent assisting the vicious CCP in persecuting good people?

Therefore, I sincerely hope that more people, while considering themselves conscientious, can really know the truth about Falun Gong and completely break away from the CCP's mind control. This is not for the sake of us Dafa practitioners, but for you and your family to have a good future.
