On February 18, 2021, our Beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai, still in the midst of an intensive meditation retreat for our world, reserved precious time to kindly read another story to the Supreme Master Television team. Titled the “Gate of Heaven,” it is about the ancient Macedonian ruler Alexander the Great and his attempt to enter the Garden of Eden. Master graciously translated the tale into English from “A Treasury of Jewish Folklore” compiled by Nguyễn Ước. Afterwards, She lovingly answered questions from team members, including one about the snake, which represents the negative power that tempted Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden.
(Master,) Yes. (now that You’ve locked away maya, should the snake have less influence on people’s mentality?)
The snake is now inside the humans. That is the problem. After millions of millions of thousands, hundreds of thousands of years, the snake has infiltrated in the human system already. Maya is an extra, external force that makes it more difficult to resist. But maya is gone; that’s a less extra burden only. The snake is still inside. The poison is still there, lingering. It’s very difficult to take out.
Master addressed how some people in politics focus on harming the opposition rather than governing.
Some politicians they have to go to the church to show people that they are religious. But that is not real in their hearts. (Yes, Master.) Because if they really do that, they would not go on so disgustingly with vengeance, fake accusations and using all means to defeat their opponents even though the opponents are already on their knees.
Lost everything; already have nothing and still continue to want to beat them down. Not just verbally, but physically and using the court and using their position, using their privilege, power to pursue to the end, to whatever end, and like no end, just to beat the opponent so that they will never exist anymore in the political arena. And that is really despicable.
You see that? Yes. (Yes, Master.) You see the snake within humans or not? (Yes.) Now you know. You know very well if you read the news, you understand what I’m saying? (Yes, Master.)
So I think the other party, the opposition party, should be careful and behave themselves properly. Really think of the suffering people. Really work for the people. Really think of the way to help them. Not just to enjoy your power and privilege and whoever dies, don’t care. Then not only God will punish you, but people will also, in some way, even though they have less power. But the power of people is strong. If it keeps brewing up, then it will be mighty and unstoppable.
Most Merciful Master, we cannot express how much Your guidance and Grace as well as the infinite Love that You shower upon on all beings daily mean to our world. We pray that humans now embrace only goodness and purity so that we may realize our true unconditional love and compassion within. May Master always enjoy safety and the best of health, in the protection of the Highest Heavens.
