(Clearwisdom.net) The persecution should not have happened, and it should not have lasted this long. During the past eight years, the old forces have not only persecuted Falun Gong and Falun Gong practitioners, but also poisoned the minds of sentient beings. It even severely interfered with Master's Fa-rectification. Master acknowledges none of this, and neither should we. We should use our strong righteous thoughts to completely negate all arrangements the old forces have made. End the persecution immediately!

After I read an American practitioner's article, "Let Us End the Persecution Now --Thoughts Before Another July 20" (http://www.clearwisdom.net/emh/articles/2007/7/18/87805.html), I was thinking, "Would the persecution end immediately?" I then repeatedly studied Master's new lectures.

Master said,

"When the Fa rectifies the human world, or, prior to that, when the malevolent CCP falls, who will govern [China]?" ("Teaching the Fa at the 2005 Manhattan International Fa Conference")

I immediately realized that it is not impossible to "end the persecution" before the Fa rectifies the human world. In fact, it is quite possible and very necessary. We have our Master, the Fa, and help from the righteous gods in the universe. We have the ability to end this persecution immediately! The most critical thing is for Falun Gong practitioners in the Fa-rectification period to have this wish, to we have this divine thought! If all practitioners from all over China and from all over the world have this thought, in addition to help from righteous gods and Master's strengthening, the righteous thoughts of practitioners and all the righteous factors in the entire universe will form one indestructible body! We will then be able to end the persecution immediately!

Master said,

"Things are even better today. Many of the evil factors are gone, the malevolent Party's evil specters are fewer, and the field Dafa has formed in the world has become enormous, with its density being very high now." ("Teaching the Fa at the 2005 Manhattan International Fa Conference")

Master taught us this Fa principle and also gave us the boundless Fa power. As long as practitioners have strong righteous thoughts and we all work together, "ending the persecution immediately" is inevitable and will naturally happen.

If we hold onto our attachments and use human notions to view this persecution, and use them to address issues in our cultivation, things will probably go to the negative side. If we operate based on the Fa principles, always treat the Fa as our teacher, view the salvation of sentient beings as our mission, look inward when facing issues and form a field of strong righteous thoughts, then things will develop toward the righteous and positive side.

I remember last year in October 2006, after Master's lecture, "Thoroughly Dissolve the Evil" was published, fellow practitioners and I sent forth righteous thoughts every day. Later we went directly to certain places in China where the evil was concentrated, such as prisons and detention centers, and sent forth righteous thoughts close to them. It effectively suppressed the evil. Once when I sent righteous thoughts at home, I saw with my third eye the hammer and sickle (the pattern on the Chinese Communist Party's flag). I immediately realized that this was the evil Party's logo. It must be eliminated. As this thought emerged, the hammer and sickle were separated, and immediately after, the sickle was split in half, then in fourths and finally it broke into pieces on the ground and disappeared. The hammer also broke into pieces and disappeared. Then, a framed picture of Mao Zedong appeared. I sent a righteous thought to eliminate it. An X formed on Mao's head. The picture became white paper and fell from the frame onto the floor and disappeared. I thought at the time that heaven would soon eliminate the CCP.

Then why have practitioners in certain areas still been arrested recently? My understanding is that just as Master said,

"The cause of your illness has been removed, and what remains is only this bit of black qi that will come out on its own." ("Lecture Two" from Zhuan Falun)

These arrests are merely the evil's last-ditch effort. It is merely the remaining little bit of black qi. It won't last for too long. From then on, every time I sent righteous thoughts I added one more thought, to "immediately end the evil situation of the persecution." Although I had that thought and took that action, I did not yet have a complete clear understanding of this Fa principle.

The purpose of ending the persecution immediately is also for the salvation of sentient beings. Saving sentient beings is our mission. It is every practitioner's prehistoric wish. It was the vow we made before Master. It may not be merely one entity that benefits from salvation. One life might mean an entire universe, an immense cosmos, or a hugely immense cosmos. That is why all practitioners should use their minds to do these things and try our best and expend every effort to save sentient beings.

Of course during their years of rule, the CCP culture has poisoned the minds of sentient beings. The political movements make the Chinese people wary, indifferent and pragmatic, which makes salvation harder to accomplish. This requires practitioners to have the compassionate mindset that could melt steel. When explaining the truth we need to have patience and confidence in our abilities, "I will be able to save you." We should not let down the hope of sentient beings and Master's expectations.

Since the Fa-rectification has advanced this far, the cosmic climate is right. We practitioners should follow the cosmic climate to do the things we are supposed to do. To be successful in our efforts to save more sentient beings we are required to study the Fa well, understand the Fa well, change our human notions, let go of human notions, catch up with the advancement of Master's Fa-rectification, harmonize what Master wants, cultivate ourselves while doing the three things with righteous thoughts and righteous actions and truly carry out the great and sacred responsibilities of saving sentient beings.

Please point out anything inappropriate that might be due to my limited level of understanding.
