After repeatedly reading Teacher's recent lecture "Teaching the Fa at the Discussion on Creating Fine Art", my personal understanding is that Teacher has already begun the last ten-year period of the Fa-rectification, or the Fa-rectifying the human realm.

Recently, many homeless practitioners in China have gone back to their original workplaces or found new jobs. I interpret this in two ways. One is that a large amount of evil beings in other dimensions have been eliminated, thus lessening the persecution . The other is that the workplaces need practitioners to tell people there the facts about Falun Dafa and the persecution. While practitioners rectify the Fa in that kind of environment, they leave for the future an absolutely righteous path. Because the old forces restricted many people's thinking, they cannot recognize the beauty and the majesty of Dafa. They even regard the practitioners' selflessness as something strange or abnormal. However, when the Fa's rectification of the human realm arrives, the truth will be revealed and people will experience a whole new way of thinking. When their locked minds are opened, people will be shocked and at the same time, they will remember the Falun Gong practitioners' great deeds that displayed their righteousness and great forbearance. In the future, people will walk on the pure, righteous path practitioners created for the new epoch.

The impact of practitioners' every word, every move and every deed in their daily lives goes far beyond the realm of personal cultivation; they are examples for the future. Teacher said, "If you do well, mankind will emulate it; if you don't do well, mankind will emulate that as well. So Dafa disciples have to do well" ("Teaching the Fa at the Discussion on Creating Fine Art"). This requires Dafa disciples to be strict with themselves in their work and everyday lives, and to show Dafa disciples' proper images. This includes our actions around those who know us as Dafa disciples and those who don't. We cannot relax the requirement on ourselves just because others don't know we are Falun Gong practitioners. People don't know now, but they will know in the future. During the Fa-rectification period, every level, every workplace, and every situation are part of the Dafa disciples' responsibility. So we must do well in order to be deserving of the title of Fa-rectification period Dafa disciples.
