Keeping Our Minds Right; Exerting Greater Efforts to Save People

Fa-rectification will end very soon and we have limited time left. Most practitioners in China are seizing the time to save more sentient beings. However, some practitioners are still afraid of being persecuted, which has a negative effect on their efforts to save people. Here I would like to share my opinions on this with fellow practitioners.

Some practitioners do not study the Fa well and are still unclear about the reason that the persecution is taking place. Therefore, they have a strong attachment to fear and cannot clarify the truth well. This should change immediately. Master told us,

"The old forces don't dare to oppose our clarifying the truth or saving sentient beings. What's key is to not let them take advantage of the gaps in your state of mind when you do things." ("Teaching the Fa at the 2002 Fa Conference in Boston")

Sometimes we have strong attachments and are in an incorrect state (for example, being irrational, fearful, harboring the mentality of showing off and/or the competitive mentality, being attached to humanness, etc.) and cannot relinquish them for a long time. While in these states, we do not conform to the requirements of the Fa. As a result, the evil takes advantage of these gaps to persecute us.

Why don't Master's Fashen and the Fa-guardian gods stop the old forces? Because Master's Fa-rectification is not only to save sentient beings but to establish the future. Everything that Master has done is to establish the future and lay a foundation for the future. It will last forever. Therefore, Fa-rectification has its principles. Master cannot protect a practitioner unconditionally, which is the same as Dafa not being able to protect an ordinary person without reason. It is not meant to permit this treatment, but to avoid deviation on this issue. If we do things with righteous thoughts and righteous actions, Master will not permit the evil to persecute us. If the evil still intends to persecute us, Master will eliminate it. Furthermore, persecution without reason does not conform to the old cosmos's laws, so the evil dares not to do it. Otherwise, the old cosmos's laws will eliminate it. Therefore, as long as we keep our state of mind right and do things righteously, we will avoid these tribulations. It is not necessary to be over-concerned with this issue. We should put our thoughts and energy on the most important thing, which is clarifying the truth.

Clarifying the truth and persuading people to quit the CCP is saving the world's people and saving the gigantic cosmic bodies and innumerable living beings in these cosmic bodies. At the same time, we are helping Master to establish the future, create history, and leave for sentient beings at different levels in different periods of history a reference for when problems occur in different periods at different levels. Therefore, we should not miss any chance to persuade people to quit the CCP and clarify the truth to them. The sole purpose for which we have come from the remote past is to save the world's people during these few precious years. Personal cultivation before 1999 was to lay a foundation for saving people. It is obvious how important clarifying the truth is and how precious this opportunity is!

As Dafa disciples, we should not let the world's people, who are supposed to be saved, be weeded out along with the sentient beings in their cosmic bodies. We should not even think about when the evil Party will disintegrate and when this persecution will finally end. Master clearly talked about this issue in "Teaching the Fa to Australian Practitioners." The only thing that we should be focusing on now is how to best use the time left to save people. In addition, we should very much cherish this chance. The ultimate goal of exposing the evil is to save people and sentient beings, not disintegrate it. We should not regard the situation on the surface as our true goal. Saving sentient beings is our true goal. We should be clear in our minds on this issue.

We should study the Fa well so that we can do the three things well. It is the only way to do things well. Only by studying the Fa well can we be diligent, and keep a clear mind and maintain our righteous thoughts and righteous actions. In the process of studying the Fa with a calm mind, our ill thoughts and substances will be eliminated. In addition, studying the Fa will give us more wisdom. At the same time, we should exert our efforts to save people. Fa-rectification will end soon and the time is flying by. Time is short, and we have many people to save. We should concentrate our thoughts and energy on persuading people to quit the CCP and clarifying the truth to as many people as possible.

The above are just some of my personal understandings. Please kindly point out anything improper.
