What If Fa-rectification Ended Today?
(Clearwisdom.net) If Fa-rectification were to end today, my fellow practitioners, have you thought about what it would be like for practitioners like me who obtained the Fa after July 20, 1999? We are just waking up and some of us just recently came to the understanding about how we are to do well with the three things.
If Fa-rectification ends now, my fellow practitioners, have you thought about how many more people still have not heard or understood the truth, how many people still have a biased view of Dafa, or how many people still are being deceived by the lies and being held back by the old forces? Some of these people may even include your family and friends, who would be eliminated due to not understanding the truth.
If Fa-rectification ends now, my fellow practitioners have you thought about whether we have reached the state of non-pursuit and the Fa’s standard? Are we able to reach the state where we are
“Doing, but without pursuit—
So constant, abiding in the Dao.”
(“Abiding in the Dao,” Hong Yin)
If Fa-rectification ended today, my fellow practitioners, have you thought about whether we have eliminated our personal enmities and sentimentality in this human world, and are not affected by any worldly matter? Have we reached the standard of Arhat and are we qualified to go home with Master?
My fellow practitioners, including myself, oftentimes when we do not want to endure further miseries and do not want to work to embody Dafa more, we wonder how come the Fa-rectification still hasn't ended. We may become attached to a certain sentence in Master’s lectures. Doesn’t this doubt the power of Master and Dafa, which has given us so much? Dafa has provided us with new lives. Master wants us to live forever in Dafa. But we are still attached to the ending of Fa-rectification and are hoping it ends soon. Isn’t this itself a strong attachment? If it is, shouldn’t we be eliminating the attachment? On the other hand, isn’t this attachment affecting the advancement of Fa-rectification? Dafa has given us so much!
My fellow practitioners, when we see the smiling faces of sentient beings after they understand the truth, and when we receive a sincere thank-you, isn’t this a reflection of Fa-rectification getting closer and closer? My fellow practitioners, no matter how many tribulations we have gone through, it is just as Master said:
“The world’s miseries endured,
One departs the earth a Buddha.”
(“Tempering the Will,” Hong Yin)
Fellow practitioners, let us do what we are supposed to do and take on the responsibilities of a Dafa disciple in the Fa-rectification period and do well the three things. Trust that Master will give us the best. In fact, haven’t we already received enough?
