Ending the Persecution Is Not Just a Matter of Time; It's Related to Our State of Cultivation
(Clearwisdom.net) I'd like to share my understandings of why this persecution is still occurring. The Fa-rectification is in the final stage of the final stage. Everything is under the control of Master. Why has it not ended yet?
I used to like reading prophecies. However, I do not have much interest in reading "Prophecy of Notes by Ge An" (an ancient book from Korea) right now. Presently, I feel that the issue of time is not important at all. Everything Master has done is for the well-being of practitioners and the sentient beings of the cosmos. Therefore, the decisive element for the result is not the passage of time, but the state of our cultivation. Let's think about it. If the persecution were to end immediately, everything is then set. There are still a lot of everyday people who have not been saved, but who should be saved. There are a lot of things that haven't been rectified, and yet they should be rectified. There are many practitioners that have left Dafa, and they should be brought back. There are also many things we haven't really done well that should be done well. All these things take time. In fact, our situation is just like what Teacher explained, writing
, "... the master will take this person to practice cultivation in a dimension transformed by the master. It may be in the form of a bygone society, today's society, or a society in another dimension" (Lecture 8, Zhuan Falun).
Master also said,
"...this is the Fa of the cosmos, so if humans want to attack it, you think they can just attack it? And if human beings want to restore our name, you think they can just restore our name? Humans aren't worthy of that!" (Touring North America to Teach the Fa)
I was thinking, "Why has the persecution not ended? Wouldn't it be better if it were ended sooner?" But, on second thought, I realized that Master wants to get what he wants, which is what the future cosmos wants: for all Dafa disciples to be assimilated to Dafa. Actually Master can do anything. Why would he not do it then? For example, to transform a being and perfect him, and erase all his wrongdoings, Master certainly has the power to do that. Why would he not do it then? My understanding is that he is acting out of the consideration for the characteristics and structure of the future cosmos. There are certain things that have to be done by us; Dafa disciples have to reach a certain Xinxing level [mind nature, moral quality], as well as accumulate enough mighty virtue.
So the only thing that we need to think about right now is how we shall do it and how to do it well. Master has taught us the Fa, told us to put away all human mentalities, and to cultivate with a calm mind while validating Dafa and clarifying the facts about the persecution. In addition, as long as we keep righteous minds, Master will help us in every aspect. Dafa has countless ways to help us accomplish our missions. To put it in simple words, it is a matter of having faith in Master and Dafa.
The above is my personal understanding. Please kindly point out any mistakes.
