(Minghui.org) Many things have recently occurred in China, from the political turmoil and the Tianjin chemical explosion to the stock market crisis. These incidents may have caught the attention of Falun Gong practitioners, but we must be clear that nothing should affect our cultivation.

Because I am able to browse overseas websites with software that circumvents the Internet blockade, I have read news articles about the huge numbers of criminal complaints being filed against Jiang Zemin, the former head of the Chinese Communist Party; the Tianjin chemical explosion; and news relating to Jiang's faction being in political trouble. I got excited and spent lots of time reading such news.

I later realized that this is a very serious issue. That is why I think that other practitioners who are in a similar situation should be alert on this matter.

We are Fa-rectification Period Dafa Disciples and should play a leading role in saving people. Things in everyday society can be used to help us validate the Fa and save sentient beings, but we should not become sidetracked by such news and forget our mission.

These recent incidents may indicate that we have limited time remaining to save sentient beings. Therefore, we should make the best use of our time instead of being distracted.

That is, we must study the Fa well, remain diligent in our cultivation, and do the three things well.
