1. Understanding mankind's current disaster in Sichuan

Many people in China have lost their lives recently. We feel pained. We have not been able to save more people. Amid this disaster, what kinds of thoughts has each Dafa practitioner held? For me, I also believe that catastrophes are about to come, one after another. Master said,

"You know, catastrophes were arranged in the past to unfold one after another. The catastrophes arranged at different levels have all passed. The comet hit Jupiter instead of Earth. The flood has passed--last year flooding was very severe and it was worldwide. Now it's very weak, weak to the point that it's passed. Many things have passed, meaning, that kind of catastrophe no longer exists. The only thing that exists is--we don't have anything to hide--the only thing that exists is that in the future a large number of people may be weeded out." ("Suggestions Given at the Beijing Falun Dafa Assistants Meeting (December 17, 1994)" of Explaining the Content of Falun Dafa)

The Fa taught in this paragraph has changed my comprehension. The old forces had arranged this current disaster. We have emphasized the prophecies too much, many of which the old forces had arranged. Their intent was to interfere with Fa-rectification and with the salvation of sentient beings, as Master told us. We should use our righteous thoughts to inhibit and negate the old forces' arrangements. We will only recognize Master's salvation of sentient beings. As Master told us, in this cosmos the requirements for Fa-rectification restrict everything. Each and every thought of ours should be for assisting Master in Fa-rectification.

2. The Communist Party is using the Olympic Games as an excuse to persecute practitioners

The Chinese Communist Party has been using the upcoming Olympic Games as justification to persecute Dafa practitioners. Our righteous thoughts should become much stronger. Righteous thoughts should not include our human notions of showing off and competitiveness. We should change our notions and get rid of our human understandings and not acknowledge the evil Party's sinister propaganda and slogans. We should use the principle of the cosmos and righteous principles to judge what we have done.

We are Dafa practitioners and are cultivating the Buddha Fa. We should no longer hold the view that our having Dafa books and truth-clarification materials is a pretext for the CCP regime to persecute us. We are Dafa practitioners and should have Dafa books. We are offering people salvation and should have truth-clarification materials. These are righteous things. We believe in Master and Dafa, and believe that the principles of the cosmos are restricting everything.

When things happen, it is oftentimes because we have acknowledged human principles, we are unclear about the Fa principles, and we have taken this persecution as humans persecuting humans. Master said, "What could human beings possibly do to gods? If there were no outside factors, would humans dare to do anything to gods?" ("In Fa-Rectification Your Thoughts Have to be Righteous, Not Human," September 19, 2004)

The number of evil beings in other dimensions has become very small, and we should not let superficial manifestations deceive us. We also should no longer consider ourselves as ordinary people, as we have our enlightened sides. Humans are unqualified to control divine beings. If we can act according to the Fa, Master will help us, and nothing will dare to touch us. We should let go of all worries.
