During the Chinese Spring Festival, people were celebrating with joy and happiness. At that very moment, do you know how many Dafa practitioners had been forced to stay out of their homes to avoid arrest? All of them facing arrest simply because of their persistence in revealing the truth? Do you know how many Dafa practitioners, though still in prison, were still showing concern for the safety of other practitioners out on the streets clarifying the truth? But as for us practitioners still safely in our homes, are we thinking about the practitioners who have been incarcerated or are homeless? Are we doing our best to help them break out from the evil den and return to their homes?

Teacher said, "The next person's things are your things, and your things are his things." ("Teaching the Fa at the Washington, D.C. Fa Conference")

What we can do is to expose to the public the names of the people or the associated work-units that have participated in persecuting Dafa practitioners. A more direct method to eliminate the evil elements is to send forth righteous thoughts.

During the 16th Party Congress in China, many practitioners in our district were arrested. Enlightened to the importance of working as one entity, some veteran practitioners said, "Suppressing our fellow practitioners is suppressing me, and suppressing Dafa." Therefore, they encouraged everyone, whether they were new or veteran practitioners, to help eliminate the negative elements in the other dimensions that led to the arrest of the Dafa practitioners. This movement not only led to the eventual release of seven practitioners arrested unlawfully earlier, but also encouraged the not so dedicated practitioners to become more diligent.

At first, some practitioners resorted to sending forth righteous thoughts only at home. Later, they decided to do it in front of detention centers and police departments, carrying baskets of vegetables to conceal their true purpose of being there. Then later still, they did not bother carrying the baskets, and they just openly and nobly send forth righteous thoughts right in front of detention centers and police departments. Their fear was gone, and their power increased daily. Now, aside from sending forth righteous thoughts, they also take part in distributing truth clarifying flyers. They're doing the three things Teacher wants us to do, and they have rejoined us in the Fa rectification work.

Teacher wants us to improve as one entity. We are also responsible for helping the less dedicated practitioners improve as well. Those who are in a position to help clarify the truth should come forward. As for those who can't, they may stay home and send forth righteous thoughts, which eliminates the evil elements interfering with practitioners doing the Fa rectification activities outside. And as for the remainder, they can look after the children at home, or help fold flyers, etc. Working together this way, everyone will be functioning as an integrated entity.

As Teacher said, "You are one body, just like Master's gong. Of course you and gong aren't the same thing, I'm just giving an example. It's just like my gong, which does different things at the same time..." ("Teaching the Fa at the Washington, D.C. International Fa Conference" from Guiding the Voyage)

As for the practitioners who haven't stepped forward, we should encourage them to overcome their fear, treasure this opportunity and catch up with the process of Fa rectification, and establish their mighty virtue in the process of eliminating the evil to save all sentient beings.

Teacher said, "I do not want to see a single student fall, but I definitely don't want unqualified disciples, either." ("Drive Out Interference" from Essentials for Further Advancement II) "Cherishing your human side enables you to enlighten to and ascend in the Fa."("Expounding on the Fa" from Essentials for Further Advancement)

If every Dafa practitioner can enlighten oneself and do well in this area, we will definitely form an indestructible unit. As long as the states of our mind are right, when dealing with the evil elements, "... a tiny finger will be more than enough to crush it."(Lecture Three from Zhuan Falun)

The above is my personal understanding. Please feel free to comment and offer suggestions.
