Worldly affairs are like a chess game, whose final phase arrives early
The fire dragon rises from hibernation and the sorrow of Yan Gate sets
Dots of plum blossoms herald the arrival of spring in Heaven and on
"Worldly affairs are like a chess game, whose final phase arrives early"
Explanation: Things in the world have always been like a chess game, with the wicked international alliance of communist countries as one side and free societies as the other side. Ten years ago, the game had already come to the point of defeat for the side of the wicked communist regimes.
"Working together with common goals, yet great disaster descends"
Explanation: The wicked international alliance of communist regimes has completely disintegrated. Ninety percent of its countries abandoned the evil communism. And that truly spelled imminent disaster for the evil Communist party.
"The leopard has died, but its skin is still left"
Explanation: The Soviet Union was like a leopard. The malevolent communist system has disintegrated, but on the surface its skin remains, and the Chinese government has inherited it. [You can say this] because today's Chinese people, too, no longer believe in communism, and it's merely that those in power in China want to use the form of the malevolent communist party to maintain their regime.
"The best autumn scenery is in Chang'an"
Explanation: China's current leaders themselves don't believe in the CCP. Their specific purpose is to use the superficial form of the malevolent CCP to keep hold of power. That's why they do everything possible to disguise the false, so-called "great situation." No matter how beautiful the "best autumn scenery" is (which is also the party's final moment), autumn scenery naturally doesn't last long. Chang'an2 also refers to China's capital, and here it refers to China in a general sense.
"The fire dragon rises from hibernation and the sorrow of Yan3 Gate sets in"
Explanation: In the lowest dimension of the heavens,4 the malevolent CCP 'manifests as an evil red dragon. This line alludes to the "June 4th" incident5 in which students and many others were massacred in Tiananmen Square after appealing to the government.
"The original precious stone meets with tribulation, and Zhao withdraws"
Explanation: "The original precious stone" is a general reference to China, which has a five-thousand-year history. It met with this tribulation. Zhao Ziyang6 was attacked and ousted as a result.
"With a courtyard of gorgeous flowers, the spring has her master"
Explanation: Before July 20, 1999, Falun Dafa disciples were everywhere in Mainland China, spread all over the country and wearing Falun Gong pins, and posters of Dafa's Falun could be seen everywhere--they looked like gorgeous flowers. "The spring has her master" means that in the spring of a certain year, the persecuted Dafa disciples will meet their Master in an open and dignified manner.
"The windstorm continues through the night, but there is no need to worry"
Explanation: In light of history, the persecution of Dafa disciples is, no matter how rampant the evil gets, nothing to worry about, just like a full night's windstorm--day will break as soon as the windstorm is over.
"Dots of plum blossoms herald the arrival of spring in Heaven and on Earth"
Explanation: The Dafa disciples who have come through the test of the harsh winter are all over the world and all over Mainland China, like the plum blossoms that brave frost and snow, telling of spring's arrival. This is the moment when the Fa rectifies the human world.
"If you want to know what will happen, ask Bo and Fu for the causes"
Explanation: "Bo" and "Fu" are two divinatory terms. When "Bo" reaches the extreme, "Fu" is bound to happen; it also means that things reverse when they reach the extreme. History is like a revolving (zhuan) wheel (lun), and there's sure to be consequences for what transpired before. All of human history has been arranged for this Fa-rectification.
"Peaceful days will naturally come to this world"
Explanation: Having gone through all kinds of tests from the evil, Dafa disciples move towards a wonderful future as the evil dies out.
"Making his home wherever he is, who is the host and who is the guest"
Explanation: Since Master came to the public in 1992 to impart the Fa, he has spent much of his time traveling far and wide to impart the Fa, and he has made his home wherever he is. The second half of this line, "who is the host and who is the guest," alludes to the question of who is [really] the host and who is [really] the guest--on the stage of history, who plays the supporting role and who plays the main role? Even this human civilization is made for Dafa, created for Dafa.
