(Clearwisdom.net) Formerly I thought of rectifying one's thoughts as personal cultivation. Sitting in meditation one recent morning however, I suddenly enlightened that rectifying one's every thought is also validating Dafa and saving sentient beings. Why? When Falun Dafa practitioners' every thought is rectified to be in accordance with the Fa, the righteous thought, which assimilates to the Fa, is mighty and can correct all improper conditions. Therefore the surrounding environment, ordinary people, and sentient beings will be rectified. From this perspective, is that not validating the Fa and saving sentient beings?

Teacher actually made this point clear in His lectures already, but I didn't realize it until now. Teacher said,

"As a Dafa disciple in this society, no matter what kind of setting or corner of society you find yourself in, you are playing a positive role. Regardless of whether you are clarifying the truth and validating the Fa or doing things not so directly connected to Dafa, you are nonetheless saving sentient beings and are playing huge roles (applause), and that is because your righteous thoughts and compassionate field are having a positive effect. I hope that you will do even better in the time ahead. (Applause) Everything that Dafa disciples have achieved will soon be revealed. "(Teaching the Fa at the Fa Conference at the U.S. Capital)

As Dafa disciples during the Fa-rectification period, we follow Teacher's direction:study the Fa well, look inward, validate the Fa and save sentient beings more extensively.

The above is my shallow enlightenment. I welcome fellow practitioners to point out any shortcomings.
