(Clearwisdom.net) October 7th report: Right now, Dafa practitioners should actively do the three things Master requires of us. Among the three things, truth clarification is very important. The progress of the lawsuit manifested in the human world is not our goal, but the process of the lawsuit is beneficial for us to clarify the truth and validate the Fa. We can say that on one hand, the progress of the Jiang lawsuit reflects the extent of our truth clarification, and on the other hand, it also shows our shortcomings in certain aspects. Because I am a practitioner in China, I can only talk about the omissions as a whole that we have in our area. Fellow practitioners, please benevolently point out anything inappropriate.

Relying on and heavily attaching to the lawsuit

Master said,

"As I've said, everything that happens today in the ordinary society is the result of Dafa disciples' thoughts. Even though the old forces do exist, if you don't have those thoughts they can't do anything. When your righteous thoughts are strong enough the old forces can't do a thing. If someone in ordinary society really did restore our Dafa's name, think about it, maybe human beings will do this, but have you thought about this: how high would I have to position that person? Isn't that right? You're cultivators, and all changes come from your cultivation and the Fa-rectification; everything that you yourselves validate and enlighten to, and everything that you'll receive, all this comes from what you have done on your path. Absolutely don't think about any favors the old forces might do for us, or about how the ordinary society might help us." ("Teaching the Fa at the 2002 Fa Conference in Philadelphia, U.S.A.")

When many practitioners place their hope of validating the Fa, clarifying the truth and saving people on the progress of the lawsuit, this is in fact a strong and huge attachment. The manifestation of the attachment is that we unconsciously rely on the lawsuit to substitute for other Dafa work, and we unconsciously work to win the lawsuit instead of using it as a way to clarify the truth.

The old forces will take advantage of this attachment. As we validate Dafa through this lawsuit, several things about this attachment were revealed. There are many truth clarification materials related to the Jiang lawsuit, yet we only considered information about Jiang being sued or convicted as useful. During the lawsuit, many practitioners spent much time sending forth righteous thoughts regarding this lawsuit and somehow neglected other Fa-rectification work. We also paid much attention to the Jiang lawsuit and were highly attentive to the outcome. some practitioners even rarely clarified the truth, and instead waited for the result of the lawsuit to end the persecution.

Lack of in depth and scope of clarifying the truth to people in China

Master said,

"In order to spread the Fa in China, and to not let average persons hear the Fa, many, many Kings of different paradises and beings from very high levels--many of whom I've been looking after throughout history--were gathered to reincarnate in the land of China. Of course, in terms of obtaining the Fa today, everyone is treated the same, whether they were looked after or not. So, there's even more reason for us to save the people there." ("Teaching the Fa at the Washington, D.C. International Fa Conference," Guiding the Voyage) Practitioners in China should be more diligent in clarifying the truth to the people in China.

Be clear-minded on the goal and purpose

The purpose of the Jiang lawsuit is to better clarify the truth and save people. However, it's not that only when we win the lawsuit can we clarify the truth. If we think this way, we would form such a way of thinking that we should first try our best to win the lawsuit, and then use the result to clarify the truth. This is wrong. If we were to follow this way of thinking, we would unconsciously treat the result of the lawsuit or whether it progresses smoothly as our goal. We would then do other things including clarifying the truth just to achieve this goal. That would be backwards like putting the cart before the horse. From the legal perspective, if we take Jiang's conviction as guilty to clarify the truth, then, in the case of that the lawsuit may take a long time, wouldn't we miss out on many opportunities to clarify the truth? On the contrary, if we help many Chinese people learn the truth during truth clarification so they truly have righteous and kind thoughts toward Dafa, or no longer oppose or hate Dafa, we will also directly or indirectly help many foreigners learn the truth and have righteous thoughts toward Dafa. People will be saved to the greatest extent, and we would have already achieved our goal. At the same time, the progress and outcome of the lawsuit would be obvious. This is very similar to Master's lecture regarding a student studying and whether he can get into a university.

Expose the evil persecution as much as possible

Because we are Dafa practitioners, Dafa has everything to do with every one of us. Therefore, the Jiang lawsuit is not just a thing for overseas Dafa practitioners, it's for all practitioners. Since the persecution mainly takes place in Mainland China, the dictator tries his best to block the news and cover up the facts. If we don't report and expose the facts of the persecution, Minghui and Clearwisdom Net would not have them published, and there would be a lack of evidence for the lawsuit. Looking from the current situation of the lawsuit, we need more evidence for the persecution. Master said,

"You must let the world's people know about their evilness--this is saving people, as well. While eliminating the evil, you consummate yourselves and strengthen the Fa's manifestation in the world." ("Rationality," Essentials for Further Advancement II)

Take solid steps on our path and leave the most glorious history for the future cosmos

The old forces arranged the advanced propaganda tools in Mainland China in order to persecute Dafa and poison people's minds. Today, Dafa practitioners are in turn using these tools to clarify the truth and save people. The old forces also arranged China's governing system to persecute Dafa and Dafa practitioners. For example, the administrative punishment of the "unique Chinese" forced labor system can bypass the legal and law organs, and sentence an innocent person to several years of forced labor without benefit of a trial. However, right now Dafa practitioners are also breaking through the old forces' arrangements and are bringing justice to the truly guilty with the law. As long as we diligently do the three things, we will be able to save as many people as possible. At the same time, those people in the human world who are determined to continue to persecute Falun Dafa will receive their deserved karmic retribution.
