(Minghui.org) As a Dafa practitioner of the Fa-rectification period, we should place our focus on the completion of the Fa-rectification, not on the end of persecution.

As we know, there are two possible endings to the persecution. One is that we complete the process of Fa rectification and all beings who are supposed to be saved are saved. This will naturally lead to the end of the persecution. The other possibility is that all the time we have is exhausted, and still there are many people not saved. The persecution has to end since time is up.

Of course, there is a deadline to all this, and the persecution will end at some point. How could the history of the universe wait forever for Dafa practitioners to improve and let the Creator endure more slander and humiliation? The persecution will end in its time, regardless of whether all practitioners reach consummation.

In other words, things will be however they will be when it all ends. Master is delaying the process to give us more time, but it won't last forever. If it went on forever, it wouldn't have much meaning.

Someone from an overseas media mentioned the year of 2017 being the end of the Fa-rectification. Maybe it is true that the persecution has to end this year regardless of whether Fa-rectification is completed. But again, maybe not. It does not matter if it is true or not—it should not concern us. What we should focus on is to help Master complete the process of Fa-rectification, and not to preoccupy ourselves with when the persecution ends.

We all have reincarnated many, many times and followed Master down to this human world in order to fulfill our vows during Fa-rectification. This is our mission. We already knew that there was a chance of being persecuted before we came here, but we didn't let that stop us. If we were scared, we probably would not have made the decision to come here to begin with. With this in mind, how could we be so attached to time and take the completion of the Fa-rectification—the most important reason that we are here in the first place—so lightly?

If we really place our focus on the completion of the Fa-rectification, then we will spend our energy on our own cultivation, aiming to meet the Fa's standards. If we all do that, Fa rectification is bound to be successful, and the end of the persecution will be here soon.

However, if we either consciously or subconsciously pay too much attention or even are very attached to when the persecution is going to end, then, as Dafa practitioners, our cultivation is not up to par, and our xinxing has not met the requirement of the Fa. That is going to result in Fa-rectification being incomplete and many beings not being saved.

As Dafa practitioners, we should welcome the end of the persecution as a result of the completion of Fa-rectification. What we should focus on is whether the Fa-rectification is successful instead of when the persecution ends. We need to be diligent and hardworking in helping Master in Fa-rectification and cherish the limited time remaining.
