As Falun Dafa practitioners, we have all been thinking about how to maximize the effectiveness of our righteous thoughts to clear away the evil elements in other dimensions that are artificially propping up the evil head. In this way, we can create a peaceful environment in which to save sentient beings before the manifestation of the Fa-rectification of the human world, and minimize the undermining of the Fa by evil elements.

We have come to realize that the original arrangement made by the old forces was to begin the manifestation of the Fa-rectification of the human world immediately after the persecution of the Fa has ended. At that very moment, the future positions of all beings will be set. However, if we can eliminate all of the evil elements that undermine the Fa prior to the manifestation of the Fa-rectification of the human world, then we will have circumvented the old forces' arrangements. In doing so, we will be able to create a peaceful environment in which to clarify the facts and save sentient beings.

Personally, I think that some practitioners recently had a common misunderstanding that does not accord with righteous thought, and I would like to share this observation with all my fellow practitioners.

Some practitioners have pinned their hopes on the coming Sixteenth National Party Congress. [This is the sixteenth national meeting of Party representatives, during which new party leaders will be chosen and the political powers will be transferred to these new leaders.] They hope that with the conclusion of the Sixteenth National Party Congress, the evil head will step down and the whole environment will change. However, I think that this kind of expectation is based on the premise that the Fa-rectification process can be influenced by the actions of non-practitioners. If we pin our hopes on the Sixteenth National Party Congress, aren't we pinning our hopes on non-practitioners? Isn't that going to be an excuse of the old forces for continuing the so-called test? We should be clearheaded in our understanding of the Fa. We should firmly believe that the abilities we have cultivated from the Fa will definitely enable us to clear away the evil and stop the persecution, thus creating a new epoch with a new future.

Teacher said, "This Great Fa of the cosmos is to leave for sentient beings at different levels in different periods of history a reference for when problems occur in different periods at different levels, and is to leave for beings ways of handling all kinds of situations that occur at different times in history." [From Guiding the Voyage, "Teaching the Fa at the 2001 Canada Fa Conference."] Then how can non-practitioners possibly be allowed to exert any influence during the current Fa-rectification process?

Whenever the evil head comes out of its den, it is imperative to take full advantage of the opportunity to eradicate the evil elements in other dimensions that have been artificially propping it up, and we should do so with determination. However, with that goal being clear, we need to keep a correct attitude, which is

"Do but pursue not ---- Constantly in the Dao."

[From Hong Yin, "In the Dao", provisional translation subject to further improvement.]

We will achieve a better effect if we do not become attached to the pursuit of results. We should strengthen our righteous thoughts until we clear away all ofáthe evil elements from all dimensions, as what actuallyáhappens with the head of the evil in this dimension and how people react to thatáhave no bearing on what we should do as a part of Fa-rectification.
