In the comments under my recent post about the horrific Chinese organ harvesting programs - @greenbeans highlighted the Falun Dafa (Falun Gong) website and that they are a cult like group with many brainwashed members.. I have found something very important for us to understand here.
I highly suggest first reviewing the post I have linked above as you really need to see it to understand this and it is very important to read and watch the video there anyway. The very short version is that the Chinese government has been apparently organising the rounding up of large numbers of practitioners of a Chi Gong (energy work/exercise and spiritual) system, putting them in slave camps and then selling their organs to whoever will pay. They are often killed during the extraction surgery.. So in short, people are being murdered in large numbers for profit.
As terrible and tragic as this is, I feel it is absolutely essential to learn every lesson that can be learned from this situation. Karma is the process of DRAWING experiences that teach us how to be in balance. Karma is not a 'balance of payments' - it is a natural and intelligent process that results from our own magnetic/attractive/repulsive capabilities as a free will being. If we deny something, we will draw a reflection of that denial so that we can learn from the experience and decide whether we really want to continue denying reality or not. I have written on this already in great length on Steemit and elsewhere. Denial is at the root of all of our suffering on Earth - when we end all of our denial, we can heal.
Since I know that we are always attracting to us our experiences and have the capacity to change what we are drawing by changing our state of being, I wondered what was drawing this evil to the Falun Gong, Tibetan and other groups in China. I am well aware that those who follow 'spiritual teachings' tend to end up denying important things and losing personal power in the process. It IS great to develop compassion but you cannot have compassion without having respect for your own needs, desires and feelings. If you overpower your own needs, desires and feelings you are not being compassionate with yourself and thus you cannot be truly compassionate at all. You might give the image of the light, but you will not be able to hold as much as you think.
Falun Dafa's FATAL Spiritual Error
As with many spiritual groups, Falun Dafa explicitly state that they teach that to be perfected, you must be mind focused and deny your own human/physical desires:
The focus of Falun Dafa practice is the mind, with the cultivation of one’s mind and thoughts, or “Xinxing,” being singled out as the key to increasing Gong energy. The height of a person’s Gong is directly proportionate to that of his Xinxing. The concept of “Xinxing” encompasses the transformation of virtue (a white form of matter) and karma (a black form of matter). It also includes forbearance, discernment, and abandonment—that is, forsaking ordinary human desires and attachments, and managing to endure the most trying of ordeals. Much is encompassed by the concept.

Think about this and feel it. What are you resonating/creating when you deliberately and regularly perform energy work and exercises while focusing on thoughts that include the ideas that:
- Total focus on minds and thoughts are your path to salvation.
- To do this you need to block out and reject all human desires.
- Enduring the most trying of ordeals is needed too.
- You will somehow be perfected in this way (end of suffering).
I'm sure many of you will see straight away that this is a huge contradiction. How can you end your suffering while denying your own will and needs? How is 'enduring trying ordeals' even remotely equal to ending suffering and being perfected? They are opposites.
In fact, the 'frequency' that is created within self when focusing in this way is guaranteed to result in a loss of power, will and freedom. Yes, the body will get stronger through the exercise, but we are more than a physical body. We also have felt needs, emotions, desires and a will. These are our way of being guided to safety, to what we need and to a right destiny path for our continued evolution. As soon as we deny our real feelings, desires and will - we are lost and more than this, we will draw to us a reflection of our own unlovingness that we have mentally allowed into our own beings.
I am fairly clear now that the extremely unloving treatment of many of these people is a direct result of the teachings they are applying and their resulting loss of personal power. The magnetically drawn reflection of evil is only a mirror being held up to the evil that is being perpetuated in their minds which denies their emotional needs. They have enslaved themselves and now they live that reality - seeming to come from 'someone else'.
Falun Dafa also includes the cultivation of the body, which is accomplished by performing specific exercises. One purpose of the exercises is to strengthen the practitioner’s supernatural abilities and energy mechanisms by means of his or her powerful Gong force. Another purpose is to develop many living entities in the practitioner’s body. In advanced practice, the Immortal Infant will come into being and many abilities will be developed.

How many of these people are 'immortal'? There is no 'inner child' that can sustain having desires denied, period.
I will go as far as to say that the cult leader of this group is knowingly or unknowingly practising what amounts to 'black magic' - dressed up as a healthy pursuit done by loving people.
It is not enough to know just some of what is needed for spiritual balance and to then proceed out into the world to live and impress publicly these ideas. We NEED now to learn also how to have complete balance WITHOUT DENIAL.
How do you FEEL about the idea of abandoning personal desire? Imagine how insidious it is to actually deliberately aim to do that - you would be absolutely ignoring and overpowering all of your feelings - leading to your own psychopathy.
