My Understanding about the Grand Final Judgment
(Clearwisdom.net) In "Fa Teaching at the 2009 Greater New York International Fa Conference," Teacher mentioned the Grand Judgment:
"...The Final Judgment that they arranged was not limited to the judging of those who would play oppositional or negative roles, or those who would do bad things. Rather, those that had played positive roles would also have to face the Judgment."
I believe this is indeed true. I had a dream in 2001, but at that time I didn't understand its meaning. Now I realize that Teacher had taught us this Fa clearly.
In my dream in 2001, my father (not a practitioner) told me as we were walking down the street that the CCTV show "Focus Report" had been canceled. At that time, they were still spreading lies every day. Hearing this from my father I wondered, "That program defames Dafa, so it should not even exist. I wonder if the Fa rectification has reached the human world?" Then I walked to the sitting room upstairs. As I headed up, I suddenly saw spectacular views out the window: Buddhas, Taos, and gods were everywhere. They were all colorful, in different kinds of clothes, and using different gestures. Some were sitting, some just standing there. The view was as if a huge curtain had been pulled apart. The curtain kept opening, so that more was visible, and then the curtain opened yet further. I was very excited and shouted, "Dad, Mom, look! Look! Hurry up! The cosmic changes and the truth are showing themselves completely." As soon as I shouted out these words, I realized that the Fa rectification in the human world had begun. I had deep regret: "There are still many people and sentient beings yet to be saved. But now the Fa rectification has begun, which means that the cleansing is coming?" I burst into tears. I sat in meditation immediately and held one palm erect, thinking, "Teacher, please give me more time, more time. Please let the Fa rectification in the human world come later. I still have many sentient beings to save."
Just then, I heard Teacher's compassionate voice ask, "Are you ready?" I didn't know what to do to prepare, but I replied, "Yes, I am ready." Then I heard wind whiz by my ears. I knew that Teacher was taking me to other dimensions, but I dared not open my eyes because I was afraid of being left there. Finally I found myself in hell. It was a very dirty, dark dimension. The upper part of my body was that of a human, but the lower part was not human anymore. I had no legs and looked like a crawling fish. My mother, a practitioner, was also crawling there with me. There was no food or water where we were.
For years, I couldn't understand this dream. I thought: "I am a Dafa practitioner after all. I've already stepped out to validate the Fa." Though I didn't clarify the truth much due to fear and an attachment to fame, there was no way I would fall to hell! What's even worse was that I thought I was actually doing well: At the end of 2000 I started genuine cultivation, and two months after the CCP staged the self-immolation in Tiananmen Square, I went to Beijing to validate the Fa. I was going to graduate and get my Master's degree that year. Was my behavior one of laying down my attachment to life and death? Even though I wrote my Three Statements when I felt muddle-headed, I felt that I was still cultivating. Why did I fall to hell in my dream?
"...not everybody can become a Dafa disciple. But this is a major thing that involves sentient beings' very existence; even the Three Realms' existence is for the sake of Fa-rectification. If the salvation of all beings--something so significant--were not relayed to every single person on earth, if it weren't relayed to the sentient beings when all was said and done, then I, he who administers the Fa-rectification, would definitely not let those responsible off the hook." (from "Teaching the Fa at the Western US International Fa Conference")
Due to my attachments, I dared not face this problem: For years, I have attached importance only to my personal cultivation and I was reluctant to clarify the truth. I did not want to take a chance and try my luck. My attachments to comfort and fear prevented me from cultivating myself genuinely and saving sentient beings. Though my mother distributed truth-clarification materials, she also wasn't doing as much as she should. This was also the state of her personal cultivation.
In Teacher's "Fa Teaching at the 2009 Greater New York International Fa Conference," Teacher said clearly that Dafa practitioners would also be involved in the Grand Judgment. That was a real wake up call for me. No matter how well I feel about myself or how much fellow practitioners praise me, I should try my best to be diligent, save sentient beings in my area, and catch up with the Fa-rectification process; otherwise, I am ruining myself! Of course, we should not go to extremes merely for the purpose of escaping punishment. Only when we study the Fa and cultivate ourselves diligently can we do well with what we are supposed to do. I am sharing the above today, hoping to remind practitioners who are working at a slow pace, who haven't caught up with the Fa-rectification process, or who haven't tried their best due to attachments to comfort: Wake up right now and move forward vigorously.
The above is my personal understanding in the current period. If you find anything inappropriate, please point it out with mercy.
