The Process of Rescuing Practitioners Is Also the Process of Fa-rectification Cultivation
(Minghui.org) Several Falun Dafa practitioners were arrested in our area because of their belief in this spiritual practice based on the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. Other practitioners and I have tried to help get them released.
As we worked to that end, I discovered that I had a fundamental problem: I did not fully trust Master and Dafa.
We phoned and wrote to the local authorities to clarify the facts and distributed leaflets to let people know that Falun Dafa practitioners had been arrested for their belief. We also sent forth righteous thoughts and found lawyers to defend them.
One practitioner's mother didn't believe that we could get her daughter released, so she gave some money to the local officials and police, hoping that would help to get her daughter released or at least get her a lighter sentence.
She asked me, “Can you really get my daughter released by talking to the local authorities?” I said, “Yes,” but I wasn't confident in my response when I answered her.
I asked myself later why I didn't have confidence and realized that my lack of complete trust in Master and Dafa has allowed the old forces to dominate my thinking.
For over the past decade, Falun Dafa practitioners have been persecuted by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), so I still harbored the attachment of fear and I still believed that the judges and the CCP had the last say, and that they could control and dominate us.
The old forces can see our loopholes in other dimensions and use them as an excuse to persecute us.
Master said in “Teaching the Fa at the Western U.S. International Fa Conference:”
“The purpose of doing the Fa-rectification in this human world here is absolutely not to put Dafa disciples or Fa-rectification in delusion. The setting of the Three Realms was created for the Fa-rectification, the purpose being to make this the place for Fa-rectification and to not disturb the divine realms. That’s why we use this setting and use these human approaches to validate the Fa. But that doesn’t mean we approve of the old forces interfering with the Fa-rectification, it doesn’t mean we approve of the things they arranged. Human society is in delusion, and people cannot see how the cosmos truly is or the real situation of beings. That’s how beings are at this level, but the situation during the Fa-rectification is presided over by Dafa and it changes according to what is required so that Dafa can save sentient beings. The fact is, at this time Dafa disciples have to do divine things, because for Dafa disciples their personal cultivation is no longer first and foremost. Saving sentient beings and reconstructing the colossal firmament during the Fa-rectification are the purpose. You have to do Fa-rectification things and things to save sentient beings, so you need to clear away the obstacles presented by this environment and validate Dafa.”
Master has made it clear that Dafa disciples must do Fa-rectification things to save sentient beings. No one has the right to test us. Even if we still have human notions, we will rectify ourselves according to Dafa and we will not allow the old forces to exploit our loopholes to arrest or sentence us.
Please point it out with compassion if anything incorrect.
