(Minghui.org) When the novel coronavirus suddenly hit China, many Dafa practitioners had different reactions and understandings about it.

For me, as a small business owner, I had to think about how to manage spending and save costs during the lock down. I was often thinking to myself, “When will the epidemic end? Is this the final phase of Fa rectification? How do I handle things in my life? Do I still have time to make up for my cultivation if I didn’t do well in the past? And what about the people I haven’t saved?”

When I got up one morning to do the Falun Dafa exercises, Master revealed a scary scene to me.

I saw that the earth was like a small particle. Far away, a huge cluster of black substance thousands of times bigger than the earth was slowly approaching.

I took a closer look and saw many divine beings, including those in charge of epidemics, sandstorms, fires, earthquakes, tsunamis, floods, and thunderstorms in that cluster. They brought with them huge negative energy to the earth, which I wasn’t sure if it was karma.

I suddenly came to the realization that for such a huge cluster, the entire earth would be engulfed in it, with no single place left out.

Before that, I thought that the epidemic might mostly be contained in Wuhan and those away from the epicenter would not face high risk of infection.

But now, I realized that I was wrong. The real situation is much worse than that.

In fact, the higher being in charge of the plague was only a tiny part of the cluster. The sandstorm was big enough to bury an entire city; the thunder was so strong that it reached high up in the sky; and the flood was also roaring towards the earth. It’s nothing like bad weather; it was like the scary scenes we’ve seen in apocalyptic movies.

Eventually, the black cluster covered the earth. Outside of it was golden light illuminating things very beautifully. It is waiting to bring blessings to the disaster-ravaged earth after everything is over. All the people left will enter a very beautiful and brand new era.

After seeing this soul-stirring scene, I was sad and yet worried. I wasn’t sure if anyone can survive such enormous calamity.

Then I saw another scene, with Dafa disciples floating above the black matter.

I looked down and saw that I had a rope reaching all the way down to the earth through the black matter. The area surrounding the rope was clear of the black matter. Many people were climbing along the rope and they would be saved if they could reach the top.

There were many Dafa disciples sitting next to me. For those who have cultivated themselves well, they offered a ladder, rather than a rope, for sentient beings to climb up. Only we Dafa disciples can save people.

After seeing all of these, I understood that we Dafa disciples must do our best to save people now and we are the only hope for people to be saved.

The above is my understanding at my limited level. I welcome fellow practitioners to point out to me anything improper.
