The Nature of Reality

[] Falun Gong teaches people to be good. Whatever does this is the true meaning of life. Falun Gong is based on the principles of Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance. It can be said that these three characteristics embody the ultimate principles of morality. Being that the practice of Falun Gong is based upon these principles, I propose that Falun Gong is the purpose of all existence and that all sentient beings exist for Falun Gong.

Falun Gong, also called, Falun Dafa, is a traditional Chinese meditation practice. Its fundamental purpose is the enhancement of moral character. Enhancement of moral character is the fundamental purpose of life. The ultimate expression of enhancing moral character is saving sentient beings. Hence, Falun Dafa practitioners save sentient beings. They do this by exposing the Chinese Communists Party's (CCP) persecution of Falun Dafa practitioners. This saves sentient beings by reviving their conscience.

In modern times, the emphasis on moral character has been lost. People view things strictly in accord with their own self-interest. Because modern science has created a form of existence that is unsustainable, the only way to preserve our existence is to return to a traditional form of living based on traditional morals.

Pollution is destroying our air and environment. Because human beings are so deeply attached to modern technology, they are unable to, as a collective, renounce this technology and return to a harmonious, traditional, non-technological way of life. The only way this can happen, and thus, the only way to avoid the decay of our air and environment, is to give up self-interests, and to act for the sake of others, not for the sake of ourselves. By doing this, human beings will stop following the path of self-destructive development of modern society. But the only way for people to awaken to selflessness is to revive their conscience. The way to do this, fundamentally, is to expose to the world, the CCP's persecution of Falun Gong.

The reason for this is that Falun Gong is the only event of pure good, and the opposite pure evil, the Chinese Communist Party. Falun Gong is a teaching of Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance. These are the principles of Falun Gong. They are purely and ultimately benevolent. The Chinese Communist Party is a gang based upon fear, lies, and violence. It is inherently evil. History has given rise to this event, the CCP's persecuting of Falun Dafa practitioners, as the final and ultimate chance for human beings to redeem themselves of their sinfulness, wickedness, and selfishness, and to revive their conscience. It could only happen at a time like today--a time when moral character has completely been de-emphasized and the ultimate evil, the CCP could arise—a time when the only thing that could save sentient beings is something that is fundamentally pure and benevolent; the teaching of Falun Gong, also known as Falun Dafa. That is, the teaching of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. Hence, it is the ultimate test as to whether a human being can choose right from wrong, can save his conscience, and can preserve his own life. The test is to understand that Falun Dafa is good and to oppose its persecution by the CCP.

The Chinese Communist Party is the ultimate evil for its ideology to hate what is good. Hence it persecutes Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance by persecuting Falun Gong. The Chinese Communist Party hates what is good because communism denies the existence of God. With this denial, human beings lose all sense of responsibility before the laws of the universe. That is, the laws of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. These laws define morality. Once human beings are no longer responsible for the consequences of their actions, they are free to do as they please so long as they can get away with it. They no longer feel that they are responsible for their actions unless society punishes them. Thus, the morals of the entire society disintegrate. This comes from the atheist doctrine of communism. Communism replaces belief in God with belief in man's freedom to fulfill all of his desires. Yet, this is impossible. For all human beings will face illness and death. By developing modern science to escape this reality, we have lost our conscience and no longer follow the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. Thus, the only thing human beings have accomplished with their hedonistic worship of technology is to create intractable societal, technological, and medical catastrophes that create endless suffering and enslavement to modern technology. Human beings no longer know joy. The closest that they are able to get to happiness is the temporary fulfillment of their selfish pursuits, or, at best, to busy themselves enough to where they do not feel suffering. Yet their lives are without a sense of fundamental purpose and preciousness. This is the result of the communist doctrine of replacing belief in God, with the worship of human selfishness.

Falun Gong is the ultimate righteousness, the ultimate goodness, because it is aligned with and teaches the ultimate principles of goodness: Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. This is the fundamental Truth of the universe for these are the fundamental principles of selflessness, benevolence, altruism. Everything else, to one degree or another, is polluted with human self-interest, and is thus, to one degree or another, deluded. That is, it misses the mark of what the authentic truth is. For the objective truth is impartial. It is not influenced by human self-interest. Only Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is the ultimate truth. Only Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance can reveal what the authentic truth is.

Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is the source of existence itself. It is the source of reality. The reason for this is that the ultimate origin of matter is metaphysical. It does not come of matter for the depth of matter is infinite. Take any particle, and it is still made of something. That means that whether or not it can be divided with modern technology, it is still divisible. It is divisible infinitely. For any particle of matter divided, must still be made of something: two halves. And each half, divided, will be made of two more. And so on, infinitely. Therefore, we cannot physically detect the origin of matter. We can only know of its existence intellectually. At some point, we can understand, a physical particle of matter arises. In fact, it comes from our consciousness. Matter arises from thought. Thought is the origin of matter. The proof is straightforward. When a human being thinks, certain parts of the brain become active. Depending on the nature and intensity of the thinking, more or less electromagnetic activity arises in the brain. This may cause hormones to be secreted or blood pressure to change. This isn't referring to uncontrolled thoughts when an external stimulus causes certain thoughts to arise. This refers to when a human being him or herself, intentionally engages in thinking. This thinking will always produce physical activity in the brain. It will make neurons move. This can cause secretion of hormones. It can change blood pressure. All of these are examples of physical reactions and energy arising from the mere use of thought. Thought itself is the source of all matter, for there is nothing else in the universe that can create energy, matter, out of something non-physical. That is, consciousness, a non-physical entity within the material world, creates physical energy that makes neurons move. That manifests as electromagnetic energy.

The basis of thought is each individual human being. That is, each individual consciousness. A human being must willfully engage in thought and only then do certain parts of the brain become active. Otherwise, they will not. You, yourself, then, are your consciousness which, when active, manifests as brain activity. Your consciousness is influenced by brain activity, but, ultimately, it is your consciousness which is in control of it. In control of how you think; how your brain acts. Then you, yourself, are an entity that controls the brain. Whether or not consciousness resides in the brain, it is a separate entity which dominates the brain. Fundamentally, a human being is the consciousness, or, in other words, the soul, or the spirit. It is not the body. A human being has a body, and a human being's spirit resides in the body for a certain amount of time. Once the body dies, the spirit remains. For if consciousness independently causes thoughts to arise in the brain, it is not the brain and neither is it the body, which is controlled by the brain through the consciousness. It is simply consciousness, or, the spirit, the soul. In order to control the brain, this entity must exist in some form that is independent of the body; otherwise, consciousness itself, you yourself, could not cause physical brain activity. So it must be something within some form of existence in a dimension which is not within our material dimension. Hence, when the body dies, the consciousness, you yourself, still exists in some dimension of time-space.

Then what creates consciousness? Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. How? Because Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is the source of reality. It is the ultimate Truth. How is this? Reality itself is three things. It is form, substance, and existence. These are the three inextricable components of reality. Each one contains the other two. It is like the three dimensions of time-space. But, fundamentally, these components are from Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. Without any conflict, there is perfect harmony. Conflict is a disruption in harmony. Hence, harmony itself is the true nature of things. The way things actually work. It is existence itself. Once something disrupts harmony, it disrupts existence. Hence conflict amongst people destroys the existence of relationships. Disharmony in the body destroys the body. Psychological disharmony incapacitates one's ability to think. This is the true nature of compassion. It is not an intentional pursuit of doing “good”. It is the inherent manifestation of harmony--state without conflict. The same goes for truthfulness and forbearance. They are not intentional actions rather, they are the inherent manifestations of a state of pure harmony, a state that has no conflicts. To get to this state, one must cultivate honesty, kindness, and forbearance. This puts the emphasis on forbearance. It must be done with diamond-like determination! Only then can one reach the state of harmony where all this comes of itself. In a conflict-filled world, it is disharmony itself which allows one to cultivate harmony. For when encountering conflict, only then can one forbear to cultivate Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, thus becoming aligned with the principles of reality, and becoming harmonious.

Because Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is the very nature of reality, the very source and originator of all reality, it is certainly the creator of our consciousness, our spirits, as well. Hence, we are able to perceive this ultimate truth within our minds. Yet, it is that which is wicked which resides in our thoughts, which goes against the cosmic characteristic of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance which creates delusions in our minds and makes us follow false thoughts. These thoughts are not our true selves. They are the manifestation of the wickedness that exists in our minds which, arises from selfishness. The wickedness in our minds is created by selfish thoughts, wicked thoughts, and selfish and wicked actions. This is what Buddhism calls karma. It manifests in another dimension as a black substance which cuts one off from Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. In this dimension its manifestations are disease, conflicts, and tribulations. Its effect is to make one suffer. This is always its effect. Hence, it is inherently evil. It is anti-existence.

On the other hand, the righteousness in one's thoughts is pure harmony, something which is purely assimilated to the cosmic characteristic, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. To give this concept a word, it is virtue. Virtue is fundamentally assimilated to Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. Hence, it is the reflection of the fundamental Truth of the universe. Virtue is a reflection of the authentic reality of the universe. In terms of substance, in other dimensions it exists as a pure, white substance. It is the true essence of matter. The more virtue that something possesses, the more pure it will be. In the human world, it manifests as great blessings, abilities, strengths, and well-being.

Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is the fundamental reality itself. It could only come of an inconceivable source that is beyond all human conception and has no form to speak of that can be grasped with a human mind.

This ultimate source is from God. By being able to perceive this ultimate Truth, the human mind is connected to the ultimate Truth, which is connected to God. If one willfully shuts down this truth in the mind, one turns to selfishness and the worship of one's own ego. There is simply nowhere else to go—either to God or to selfishness. That selfishness is the creator of Hell. One can choose which path to take. Yet the things outlined here are based on reason. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance defines right and wrong inherently. One has only oneself to blame for choosing what is inherently wrong. And the inherent consequence of that will be suffering. That is the nature of reality itself.

The fundamental choice of where one will go is to understand that Falun Gong is good and that the CCP is bad. The CCP is the manifestation of the ultimate selfishness, real evil, on earth. Falun Gong is the teaching of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, the principles that created the universe and all things.
