(Clearwisdom.net) As Fa-rectification period Dafa disciples, what is our relationship with ordinary people? What is our relationship with this society and this environment? Dafa disciples who have come so far should position these relationships correctly, understand clearly the responsibility and mission that we shoulder, and truly eliminate all human notions. Below are my current understandings on this issue. Please kindly point out anything that is not correct.

Teacher says in Hong Yin: "In the world is a great Arhat, Spirits and ghosts fear greatly" ("Mighty Virtue"). In Hong Yin II it says, "Gods walk the earth, validating the Fa" ("What's to Fear?") In fact Master has told us clearly that we are gods, gods among people. But quite often, we don't realize that we are gods, or can't realize this at every moment, and we thus deal with many issues with human notions. Since we are gods, how do gods look at this world?

In gods' eyes, human beings are human beings, regardless of whether they are good or bad. The criterion to distinguish if someone is good or bad is one's xinxing standard. This is something the higher beings can see clearly, but humans use concepts to judge people, such as whether one is beautiful or ugly, superior or inferior, clever or foolish, distinctions that do not exist in gods' eyes.

As Fa-rectification period Dafa disciples, what is our relationship to ordinary people? The answer is quite simple. It is fundamentally the relationship of saving and being saved. We have relatives, parents, spouses, children, friends, and enemies. These are relationships people have with each other. These are not relationships between Dafa disciples and human beings. Though we still have these relationships on the surface, we shouldn't have such concepts in our heart. These are reflections of human sentimentality. When the Fa-rectification arrives at this world, we Dafa disciples will consummate and go to where we belong. We will have no connection with human beings. We often talk about stepping out of humanness, when, in fact, quite often we are still like human beings. In short, apart from thoughts like saving sentient beings or validating the Fa, all others thoughts are human thoughts.

The three realms were created for the Fa-rectification. In this human world, everything around us in relation to our basic necessities such as food, clothing, shelter, and transportation came into existence for the Fa. For instance: residences, transport vehicles, communication equipment, and food, as well as engaging in trade, going to work, making a living by manual labor, etc. These ways of living all came into existence for the Fa. According to this train of thought, since the relationship we have with human beings is that of saving and being saved, it is not hard to imagine what the relationship we have with the environment surrounding us and this society is. In fact, Master has clearly told us: "using things selectively and in a good and upright way" ("Teaching the Fa at the 2005 Manhattan International Fa Conference").

The existence and continuation of this human society can be likened to merely staging a play. Heaven is its curtain; Earth is its stage. The theme of the play is validating the Fa and saving sentient beings. How we act in this play and validate the Fa shows Fa-rectification period Dafa disciples' rationality, wisdom, and compassion, and during the process, Dafa disciples' mighty virtue and fruit status are being established.
