Be Aware and Constantly Vigilant of Security
(Clearwisdom.net) As the Fa-rectification progresses, Falun Gong practitioners' cultivation environments in many areas of China continue to improve. Because of the continuous improvement, Falun Gong practitioners in some areas of China began to be less mindful of security. The fact is that even though the overall situation is improving, the residual evil elements in other dimensions will not stop interfering because it is the evil's nature to do evil things. As for the depraved people that assist in the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners in China, they are likely to give an illusion that they are reducing the persecution while continuing to persecute Falun Gong practitioners without restraint, but more secretly. One of the two reasons is that the evil's alliance is growing thin, and the other reason is that they are trying hard to hide the persecution to prevent their crimes from being exposed to the rest of the world. They are trying harder to block the facts of the persecution while continuing the persecution in a more secretive manner. In other words, they are turning the persecution into an "underground" activity.
Teacher has taught us repeatedly in recent Fa lectures that the evil elements in other dimensions will continue their evil deeds until the very end. We must not lower our guard at any time and should persist in doing the "Three Things" well, including studying the Fa, sending forth righteous thoughts and clarifying the facts about Falun Gong to the world's people. I'd like to advise those fellow practitioners that help with distributing truth-clarification materials (1) to pay special attention to cultivating their speech and to doing everything in a more discreet manner. Some fellow practitioners had done a lot of Fa-rectification work together and overcome many tribulations together, so they tend to chat a lot whenever they have a chance to get together. Sometimes because a fellow practitioner that no one is familiar with looks like a diligent cultivator, other practitioners become less vigilant although they are not familiar with him. When we become less mindful of security, we are likely to compromise our security because we don't want to embarrass or hurt the feelings of certain practitioners that we are not familiar with or because we don't want to ruin the happy atmosphere of the rare reunions of fellow practitioners that haven't seen each other for a long time.
We should bear in mind that the environment in China remains very complicated and the "610 Office" continues to be hard at work to persecute Dafa practitioners. We continue to find cases where special agents disguised as "diligent Falun Gong practitioners" probe information about Falun Gong practitioners and truth-clarification materials production sites (2), and then use the information to abduct Falun Gong practitioners and to destroy the materials production sites. We also continue to discover that some individual Falun Gong practitioners are being accused of being special agents but they don't want to give up practicing Falun Gong either. These two types of people may look a lot like Falun Gong practitioners, but they are actually aiding the Jiang regime's policies to persecute Falun Gong and wearing two faces.
Although our mission is noble and we have never violated any law, we need to be mindful of security. Before the persecution against Falun Gong ends in China, we shouldn't have any fellow practitioner that is not part of your truth-clarification work group know anything about that group's existence, no matter how much we think we know that fellow practitioner. The desire to tell a fellow practitioner outside your work group about your work, comes from attachments to showing off and zealotry. Meanwhile, I would also like to remind all fellow practitioners not to try to check out or talk about information that we need to be discreet about, especially the information about truth-clarification sites.
I sincerely hope that we can all be more mindful of security. As cultivators, we should strive to assimilate to the Fa. As cultivators during the Fa-rectification period, we should conduct ourselves strictly according to the requirements of the Fa-rectification, doing the Three Things well, and sticking to our Fa-rectification paths. We should not adjust our security standards because of the slightest bit of improvement in the environment in China. As for those suspicious fellow Falun Gong practitioners, we should help them study the Fa more and genuinely cultivate better. We could study the Fa with them, exchange cultivation experiences, send forth righteous thoughts with them and for them, sharing what we have learned from clarifying the truth about Falun Gong to the Chinese people, etc. We can talk to them about cultivation as long as we don't tell them about specific details about our work.
Everything happens for a reason. When we encounter interference such as special agents, we should first ask ourselves if we have any cultivation loopholes. Then we should eliminate our loopholes in cultivation and purify ourselves through our cultivation practice, leaving no loopholes for anyone's exploitation.

(2) Materials Production Sites: Places set up by practitioners to design and print flyers, pamphlets, posters, etc. with factual information about Falun Gong and the persecution to counter China's state-run media anti-Falun Gong propaganda
