We need pay attention to and examine the recent incidents of a couple of overseas Dafa practitioners' refugee applications being rejected.

1. As a God and as a Human, Every Aspect of the Path We Take Has to be Upright.

In "Explaining the Fa During the 2003 Lantern Festival at the U.S. West Fa Conference," Teacher said:

Also, whatever we do, we have to do it righteously, to really do it like a cultivator would. Don't let the old forces take advantage of your gaps. When they take advantage of your gaps they'll do those kind of things [you mentioned]...So when you encounter those difficulties, do more checking of your own part, do things more righteously, and don't let the old forces take advantage of your gaps. Those wicked beings that are being controlled by the old forces have already seen their impending doom, so it's like they're in disarray, and they act desperately as if they're being pushed against a wall--they'll do anything, no matter how bad. Pay attention to these things and don't let them take advantage of your gaps.

Based on the viewpoint of the Fa principles, the evil forces are acting even more frenzied at the end. They even ignore the old forces' arrangements by more severely persecuting Dafa and Dafa disciples. While using righteous thoughts to completely negate the old forces' arrangements and eliminate the evils, we also need to always treat everything that happens to ourselves and to other disciples with righteous thoughts. When dealing with everything in the human world, we still need to conform to the worldly principles so as not to leave loopholes for the evil to exploit. Negating the old forces' arrangements does not mean totally ignoring the principles of the human world. Only by achieving non-omission at both the human level and the higher levels, can we completely disallow the old forces to take advantage of our gaps.

From this I understand that "conforming to the everyday people's society" includes handling everything in the human world while best conforming to the worldly principles, and "righteous actions" also reminds us that every aspect of the path we take, both as an enlightened being and as a human, has to be upright.

2. More Comprehensively and Thoroughly Clarify the Truth to Government Officials.

In "Explaining the Fa During the 2003 Lantern Festival at the U.S. West Fa Conference," Teacher said:

You've been doing these things all along, and you did pretty well before. Going forward, what you can do is just to do it on a deeper level, and on a broader scale.

The majority of practitioners are astonished to learn that multiple practitioners' refugee applications were rejected. How can these types of things occur? From our point of view, most governments and people in western democratic counties like Britain and Australia are very knowledgeable about and supportive of Dafa. This is clearly proven since many proclamations and resolutions for Falun Gong came from these countries. However, the recent repatriations of a couple of practitioners have shown that our truth clarification work to western governments is lacking in terms of depth and comprehension.

When clarifying the truth to government officials, we often focus too much on the surface and on formality. For example, we are happy to get a proclamation or a letter of support but neglect if they really understand what Falun Gong is about. We also fail to comprehensively clarify the truth by limiting our audience to only government officials and by not including administrative offices. Not until a problem occurs have we clarified the truth to administrative offices, i.e. police departments and immigration bureaus.

These repatriation cases have reminded us that we need to more comprehensively and in an in-depth way clarify the truth to all governments.

3. Urge All Governments to Rescue Falun Gong Practitioners Being Persecuted in China.

In "Explaining the Fa During the 2003 Lantern Festival at the U.S. West Fa Conference," Teacher said:

Why do those countries that uphold justice turn a blind eye to the Chinese government's persecution of such a large number of grassroots people who are the mainstream society? Why do they keep silent? There are reasons on their part, but there's also interference arranged by the old forces, who make them be busy with the terrorists. That's why terrorists surface every now and then, distract them from time to time, and prevent them from focusing on the true purpose of their existence.

We need to more wisely remind these governments of the true purpose of their existence; our righteous thoughts can help facilitate everything in the human world. In addition to moral support, we also need actual support (which is really benefiting themselves) -- to rescue all Falun Gong practitioners being persecuted in China.

There are good examples in history of how western countries have righteously rescued people, e.g. saving Jewish people during World War II and giving refuge to Chinese students after the June 4th Tiananmen Square Massacre.

Jiang's regime has persecuted Falun Gong practitioners so extensively, exhaustively, and cruelly; this is the most severe human rights violation in recent human history. We need to make all governments aware that this persecution is unprecedented in history.

Thereafter, all government officials should do a better job in rescuing Falun Gong practitioners. They should not only rescue practitioners with their own country's citizenship and the relatives of their own citizens, but they should also rescue all practitioners being persecuted in China.
