My Understanding of the Current Fa-rectification Process After Studying Teacher's New Article
(Clearwisdom.net) After Teacher released his new article "Thoroughly Dissolve the Evil,"
I have been sending righteous thoughts to dissolve the evil in death camps, forced labor camps, and brainwashing classes, and further clarifying the truth as required by Teacher. While memorizing the Fa and clarifying the truth, I am becoming clearer about the current Fa-rectification process. I would like to share my understanding with fellow practitioners.
First, I am clearer about the nature of the persecution. We must expose the persecution and clarify the truth until the last minute. Since the old forces arranged this persecution and the persecution of Dafa did happen, massive truth clarification becomes a powerful tool to break through this arrangement. It is an effective means to save sentient beings and it demonstrates the mighty power of Dafa. The truth of Falun Gong is also the bottom line for sentient beings. Whether they can be saved or not ultimately stems from their understanding of the truth. Therefore, we have to clarify the truth until the persecution has ended.
In the beginning, after Falun Gong practitioners made persistent efforts to clarify the truth, some ordinary people recognized that Falun Dafa was indeed being persecuted. Later, when the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party was published to help people see the true nature of the CCP and renounce it, more people came to believe that this persecution is indeed taking place, but still no actions have been taken to stop it.
The brutality of the persecution is beyond our imagination. Organ harvesting, especially, is a level of evil never before seen on our planet, while countless methods of torture, which were never even described in the history of our civilization, have become commonly used in China against Falun Gong practitioners. But ordinary people have no chance to know about it because the evil forces try to cover it up. How can this be?
Now that Teacher's article "Thoroughly Dissolve the Evil"
has been published, Falun Dafa practitioners will definitely eliminate the evil. The persecution that has lasted for six years will be exposed to ordinary people. They will be greatly shocked by the bloody facts and make their own decisions without external interference.
What Teacher said is the Fa. This article indicates that practitioners should stop the persecution immediately. It also means that many more people will be saved by Buddha's infinite grace. This period of time is so tight and precious. Let us let go of our human attachments, validate Dafa, and clarify the truth more deeply and widely. This is the duty of practitioners who are on the path to Godhood.
During this period, I found I had some shortcomings that needed to be overcome:
- We are required to thoroughly dissolve the evil, but I still accepted the inevitability of the evil force's existence in my thoughts. I now put extra effort into clearing my own space before sending forth righteous thoughts at the top of each hour.
- Recently, when I studied Lecture Nine in Zhuan Falun, the sentence "There will be no need for you to ensure justice." was clearly imprinted in my mind. I understand that it was Teacher reminding me that when the persecution is gradually exposed, it will stir up my attachment to "ensuring justice," which is embedded with a competitive mentality.
- Can I accept my fellow practitioners' shortcomings in cultivation and take them with righteous thoughts? Our fellow practitioners were detained in jails or forced labor camps owing to their loopholes in cultivation at different levels. These deficiencies also exist in practitioners who are not imprisoned. If we do not exhibit tolerance and the ability to forgive, how can we rescue the detained practitioners? As one practitioner puts it, "We should not focus on the attachments of other practitioners. Instead, we should look inside ourselves, because this universe sees Dafa practitioners as one whole body."
- The relationship between the truth of the persecution and the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party is important. The latter will help to eliminate interference for sentient beings who are to be saved. The role of "Minghui Weekly," which directly promotes Falun Dafa, should be not ignored.
Let's send forth mighty righteous thoughts,
"...thoroughly dissolving all evil beings and elements that persecute Dafa disciples, clearing away the evil circumstances under which Dafa disciples are persecuted in mainland China, and saving the world's people, [thereby] fulfilling the duties of a Dafa disciple and advancing toward godhood."
