Hurry Up and Meet the Standard: My Thoughts after Seeing What I Saw Through My Celestial Eye
(Minghui.org) While sending forth righteous thoughts on the morning of November 19, 2016, I saw the following through my celestial eye: Master was standing in the universe surrounded by a boundless aura. In front of him were two rows of dark waves. Poisoned arrows were flying toward him, but nothing was able to reach him. Countless sentient beings knelt around Master, begging him to make it stop.
Master spoke. What he said was, in essence, that many Dafa disciples have not met the standard yet, that he is waiting for them and giving them more time so that they can consummate.
When I shared this with practitioners in my Fa-study group, everyone had different thoughts. But most agreed on these two understandings.
First, Master has endured everything for the universe's sentient beings. Master has constantly watched over us and protected us while we cultivate. The old forces will never succeed. As Dafa disciples, we should do the three things well.
Second, we should reach the standard as soon as possible, so that Master does not have to forbear even more for us. Master has not ended Fa-rectification because of us, and he has to suffer so that the time can be extended.
I’ve read practitioners' sharing articles that talk about Master suffering for us. I know that we are the reason that Master is suffering, but the evil will never be able to really hurt Master. But I didn't think further about it back then.
After seeing what I saw, I had some new thoughts: Master is protecting us. We should cultivate diligently and reach the criteria for consummation as soon as possible, so that Master does not have to endure as much.
From Master's teachings and fellow practitioners' sharing articles we know that all the divine and sentient beings at each level of the universe are begging Master to end it.
“Dafa disciples should not stay attached to time and should not neglect to go about doing the things you should do. I keep prolonging this time to give it to you and have you do things quickly! ” (“Fa Teaching at the 2016 New York Fa Conference”)
Recently, Master further told us how to cultivate ourselves:
“What a cultivator cultivates is none other than him or herself. The outside pressures that Dafa disciples face are tests as well as opportunities to be more diligent, while the internal conflicts and pressures among Dafa disciples are, likewise, tests and opportunities to be more diligent.” (“A Congratulatory Letter to the Fa Conference of Europe”)
As Dafa disciples, we should treat conflicts and pressure as tests and chances to strive forward and solidly cultivate ourselves to meet the standard for consummation.
This is my own understanding. Please correct me if there is anything wrong.
