Not Fulfilling Our Mission Is Harming Sentient Beings
(Clearwisdom.net) As the pace of Fa rectification increases, the moment that the Fa will rectify the human world is near at hand. The time left for us to save sentient being is getting shorter. In this limited amount of time, how to fulfill our mission and save more sentient beings should be the most important question every practitioner faces.
Some practitioners have suffered tribulations and pain. They feel that time goes by so slowly and hope that the period of Fa rectification will end sooner. However, have we thought about this - if it ends now, have we reached the standard? Can we return to our own heavenly world? Have we saved all sentient beings, according to what we promised? Can we be free of guilt when facing our fellow sentient beings?
My point is this: If we cannot fulfill our mission of saving sentient beings, we are destroying them. It is a very serious issue. Our cultivation is intimately related to saving sentient beings. Think about it - if we signed our promise before entering this human world to assist Master to rectify the Fa and save sentient beings, if we don't save them, or don't save enough, then those sentient beings will not be saved because we were not diligent. They will be destroyed. What's more, they also have their sentient beings in their corresponding universes who in turn have their corresponding universes. Aren't we committing a huge crime and destroying sentient beings? When facing the future grand trial, we will have nothing to say in our defense.
"Now is the final moment that concludes arrangements that are eons old. History's progression to this point today has not been easy, fraught as it's been with hardship and ups and downs. From ancient times till today, the multitude of gods have been watching and closely following this affair, and are paying particular attention at this final phase." (From "Fa Teaching at the 2008 New York Fa Conference")
Therefore, the closer to the end, the more we cannot relax our standards for ourselves. Instead, we should be more diligent, realize the urgency of saving sentient beings, and make manifest the compassion of Dafa practitioners.
I am far short of the standard of practitioners in Fa rectification period. When I read the articles from the Sixth Internet Experience Sharing Conference for Practitioners in China on the Minghui/Clearwisdom website, I was deeply moved by fellow practitioners' righteous deeds in saving sentient beings. I hope those practitioner who are not so diligent can start acting today, eliminate human notions, and join the effort to save sentient beings in this Fa rectification period. Otherwise, if we cannot realize our promise, and fulfill our mission to save sentient beings, we are destroying them
