1. The Lawsuit in Chicago Is in the Most Critical Period
In the lawsuit against Jiang Zemin, the judge's decision on whether the case will proceed to the plaintiffs and defendants appearing in court, based on documents submitted by the plaintiff's attorney and the United States Justice Department, is fast approaching. Based on reports, the judge will make a historic decision regarding this case between May 9 and June 22.
Based on a Clearwisdom report on May 7 from Chicago, the case against Jiang has shaken the Chinese leadership to the core. Jiang's group has used diplomatic and other means to apply pressure to the United States government, attempting to force the United States government to stop this case from going forward by saying that "Jiang is willing to pay any price." On April 14, the plaintiff's attorney successfully completed delivery of evidentiary documents to the courts, and May 8 is the cutoff date for the U.S. Justice Department to submit corresponding documents. In the subsequent four to six weeks, or the period between May 8 and June 21, the judge will decide whether this case is legitimate and if it will be brought to trial based on both sides' documents.
Chicago Dafa disciples believe that once the judge decides that this case can be upheld and pushes it to the trial phase, the outcome of the trial would be very clear. Jiang Zemin and the "610 Office" have committed heinous crimes against the Falun Gong group. With massive amounts of witnesses and evidence, even Jiang himself realizes that he cannot deny his policy to eliminate Falun Gong and the crimes he has committed in the past nearly four years. The judgment on whether this case is legitimate before June 22 is the most crucial step in this entire process, and right now we are in the most crucial period of time.
2. The Evil Forces' Interference Is Very Obvious
With the approach of the deadline discussed above, Jiang's group is frantically escalating its pressure on the United States through different means. The notable increase in the density of evil matter in the other dimensions corresponding to the Chicago area and even North America can be clearly felt. Even though practitioners in some areas in North America, Hong Kong, and Europe have begun some positive discussions, acted to clarify the truth, and interacted with the media, the manifestation of interference from the evil forces is still quite obvious.
For example, some fellow practitioners discovered unexpectedly that the important articles published by Clearwisdom on this topic since the beginning of May have gone unread by some areas' coordinators and relatively active Dafa disciples, and as a result, they have not taken on this important direction -- making a concerted effort to take advantage of the opportunity and clarify the truth, eliminate the evil, and elevate as a whole. At the same time, whether it's Mainland China or abroad, quite significant numbers of Dafa disciples still have a feeling of indifference, of being far from the action, or solely waiting for the result passively. Chicago area practitioners have felt that the interference with their own cultivation and in daily life has increased, and the daily work of clarifying the truth and introducing the Fa have encountered difficulties of different types. In the mean time, the activities to rescue Charles Li, which also requires us to comprehensively clarify the truth and is closely related to the American officials' attitude towards this case, have seemed to have cooled off quite a bit.
In addition, Dafa disciples in various areas, as important components making up the whole body, have not reacted as enthusiastically or fully as normal to Clearwisdom's important article "Bring Jiang Zemin to Justice In the Court of Morality, In the Court of Conscience, and In Courts of Law All Over the World" . Our past experience during the Fa-rectification tells us that when Dafa disciples' minds are unclear or unsteady, the reaction from society inevitably will be slow and limited.
3. Dafa Disciples Must Play the Main Role, Using Strong Righteous Thoughts and Actions to Help People of the World Position Themselves Well and Save Sentient Beings
Master taught us at the end of last November during the Fa Conference in Philadelphia:
"As I've said, everything that happens today in the ordinary society is the result of Dafa disciples' thoughts. Even though the old forces do exist, if you don't have those thoughts they can't do anything. When your righteous thoughts are strong enough the old forces can't do a thing. If someone in ordinary society really did restore our Dafa's name, think about it, maybe human beings will do this, but have you thought about this: how high would I have to position that person? Isn't that right? You're cultivators, and all changes come from your cultivation and the Fa-rectification; everything that you yourselves validate and enlighten to, and everything that you'll receive, all this comes from what you have done on your path. Absolutely don't think about any favors the old forces might do for us, or about how the ordinary society might help us. You are the ones saving the ordinary people's society, and you are the ones saving sentient beings!"
So, we absolutely cannot place our hopes in everyday people, including judges, government officials, and the media -- relying on them to walk down a path of justice on their own. We need to help people of the world position themselves well in the future through Dafa disciples' fully righteous thoughts and actions.
Our historic responsibilities are great, yet the time for us to rescue sentient beings is running short! No matter what the old forces have planned, no matter how the remaining evil beings plan to do damage until the end, each of us Fa-rectification period Dafa disciples must act as the main characters, instead of waiting for judges in society, some part of the Chicago Dafa disciples, or international investigative committees to right the injustices on our behalf. Instead, we should treasure our time even more to clarify the truth, expose the persecution, validate Dafa, and do well in all of what we should do at this historic juncture -- rescuing sentient beings and upgrading our own xinxing. (moral character, heart or mind nature)
4. Let Us Forge the Future with Dafa Disciples' Righteous Belief, Thoughts, Actions and Demeanor
In fact, bringing Jiang to justice should not be limited to the scope of a few legal cases, but also be played out in a grand public trial between good and evil in the hearts of the people of the world. In the grand battle of comprehensively, broadly, and deeply clarifying the truth about bringing Jiang to justice, we must act and cultivate using the unbreakable, unshakable righteous belief, extraordinary reliance, and magnificent demeanor bestowed upon us by Dafa. Only then can we establish society's integrity, draw out kindness, and through the process forge a better future for all.
Many articles on Clearwisdom have covered clarifying the truth and validating Dafa quite well, especially "Bring Jiang Zemin to Justice In the Court of Morality, In the Court of Conscience, and In Courts of Law All Over the World" and "Jiang Zemin Accused of Eight Crimes in Deceiving the World and Harming Mankind". It can be said that these are excellent outlines for clarifying the truth, as each of Jiang's major crimes can lead to many powerful examples and lines of thinking to help clarify the truth. At the same time, each item needs to be conveyed in different ways to different audiences based on their ability to understand and accept them.
More Dafa disciples are invited to participate, share their wisdom and understandings, author truth-clarifying materials, and take action. All means that we have used in the past four years to clarify the truth -- flyers, newspapers, television programs, press conferences, petition drives, sending letters, making phone calls, contacting the government, talking to the media, inviting society's organizations to sponsor seminars, forming an alliance with all of society -- all of these methods can be fully utilized together. Dafa disciples' integrity, righteous thoughts, and upright actions will also lead more people in society to write down their condemnation of Jiang from various angles, enumerate evidence of the various crimes committed by Jiang, and participate in this righteous, global activity in their own ways.
5. While Clarifying the Truth, Support Bringing Jiang to Justice in the Chicago Trial and in the Hearts of the People Around the World With Global Coordinated Righteous Thoughts
This article is mainly aimed at calling upon Dafa disciples all over the world, while actively participating in the truth-clarification activities in society and in the process strictly cultivating xinxing, to strengthen their coordinated righteous thoughts globally targeting the lawsuits against Jiang Zemin and his trial in the hearts of the public around the world.
The specific plan is, starting from the time that this article is published and in addition to the four times of coordinated global sending forth righteous thoughts daily, to extend the time for sending forth righteous thoughts for five minutes in the 6 AM and 6 PM sessions (Beijing time and Eastern Daylight Time in the Americas), and adding in the following message: "Support the Lawsuit in Chicago, Support the Grand Public Trial in the Hearts of the People of the World." This is to clear away with full force the interference from other dimensions regarding this event and to strengthen the field of righteous thoughts.
The great Dao has no form but does have one body. It is hoped that this call for action will result in the active response and cooperation of Dafa disciples all over the world, and that through this process, more lives will be saved. It is also hoped that Dafa disciples all over the world form one body, and through coming and going at will yet cooperating seamlessly, progress toward a comprehensive maturation.
