(Clearwisdom.net) Evil Jiang re-emergence on the scene, as I understand it, indicates that Dafa disciples are lagging behind the progress of Fa-rectification, and that as one body, we have allowed loopholes to be taken advantage of by the old forces. We have not clearly enlightened to the Fa principles and this is why evil Jiang’s managed to arise again. In fact, if we had conducted ourselves righteously, this culprit would absolutely not been able to come out again to foul up the environment. No matter what excuses the old forces may have used to allow evil Jiang reappear in public, his reappearance can only result in losses in terms of saving sentient beings, and these losses were created by us ourselves.

It is similar to last year's situation when Shen Yun was on tour. At that time, many Dafa disciples failed to keep up with the progress of Fa-rectification, and when they sent forth righteous thoughts they still held onto their own notions and could not understand on the basis of Fa the significance of promoting Shen Yun to mainstream society, let alone understanding the importance from a deeper and higher level. Because of this, we disciples actually hindered people from coming to the show. In other words, as I see it, we hindered sentient beings from being saved. Although it is very painful to talk about, this is what I understand to be true.

In order to save sentient beings, Dafa disciples are engaging themselves in various projects and tasks. However, whether we can do them well, and to what extent we do well, depends on the degree we understand the Fa. From a different perspective, it truly demonstrates Dafa disciples’ xinxing and their abilities. Let me use an analogy: It's like polishing a window. Whether or not you can wipe it clean depends on the cloth you are using. If the cloth is clean and free of dust, then the window you are wiping will be nice and clean; if the cloth you are using is dirty, then the window may end up being even dirtier than before.

Therefore, cultivation is always top priority and our righteous understanding of the Fa is extremely important. If we fail in this respect, many of the things we do will turn out to be mere formality and not have any effect. What should we do then? Our only path is to calmly study the Fa, cultivate ourselves solidly and rapidly improve ourselves based on the Fa. Only by truly cultivating ourselves well can we do well in what we should do.

The above is just my limited understanding at my level. Please kindly point out anything improper.
