Comment on Evaluation Criteria
Recently, there have been a
great number of new students who have not yet gained a deeper understanding of
Dafa’s requirements. There are some regions in particular where the Dafa
practitioners in charge are new, too. Therefore, within a very short time you
are required to study the Fa in depth so that all your conduct and your demeanor
will conform to Dafa. Meanwhile, the general assistance centers in different
regions need to be careful selecting people. Those who mislead students should
be replaced as soon as possible, and those who study Dafa well should be
selected to take charge.
Of late, some
assistance centers have asked those whose Third Eye (tianmu) are said to be open to examine students’ cultivation.
Everything those people have seen is in fact false and illusory. I said long ago
that the criterion for evaluating a disciple is nothing but his xinxing,
and I will never allow anyone who hasn’t attained Enlightenment or reached
Consummation to see clearly my disciples’ actual cultivation states. What is
visible to those who can see are merely manifestations shown to them at their
particular low levels, and they are unable to see things at higher levels. If
someone in charge uses such a person to examine other students, this person will
develop an attachment to showing off. Moreover, his demon-nature will also cause
interference and damage, so what he sees will be transformed by his mind
activities. It was wrong for him to examine Dafa disciples in the first place.
The person in charge who asked him to examine students also didn’t follow my
words. Why don’t you listen to your Master’s words: “The only criterion
for evaluating a student’s cultivation is his xinxing”?
Don’t you know that all dimensions exist simultaneously in the same place?
Living beings in any dimension are likely to overlap with human bodies, and they
look very much like possessing spirits (futi).
Yet they exist in different dimensions and have nothing to do with humans. Can
those whose Third Eye are said to be open understand these complex situations?
people casually claim that this person is possessed or that person is possessed.
Let me tell you that the problem lies in those who make such statements
universe’s dimensions are extremely complex. What I have said has exhausted
all expressions of human language. A lot of situations are beyond the
description of human language. Even a disciple who has reached Consummation can
only see clearly what he has enlightened to at his Attainment Status, not to
mention a person who is still practicing cultivation.
