(Minghui.org) For Falun Dafa practitioners, once they step onto the path of cultivation, their goal is very clear: to assimilate to the Fa, protect Falun Dafa, save sentient beings, reach consummation and return to their celestial world.

It has been 21 years since the spreading of Dafa, and we have been persecuted for 14 years. During this long and continuous tribulation, many practitioners have longed for the end of the Fa-rectification. But, it is not over yet. Therefore, I would like to ask: Who has affected the pace of Fa-rectification?

This period is not to show how capable the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is. It is for practitioners to establish mighty virtue in this evil environment. If each and every practitioner is able to solidly cultivate, accomplish his or her mission and fulfill his or her vow, then the CCP would be eliminated in less than a second. It has no other reason to exist.

There are some practitioners who are not clearheaded and do not cultivate diligently. They are not able to meet the requirements set forth by Master and not able to fulfill their missions and vows. Therefore, they do not have the mighty virtue to achieve consummation. This evil environment is a chance for these practitioners to do better.

If the evil CCP were eliminated now, we would have to give up on those practitioners who have not reached the standard yet. This means that their lives would no longer exist. Dafa is the fundamental Fa of the universe, the highest Fa. If they could not be saved by the universe's supreme Fa, they would no longer have any hope of being saved and, therefore, could only be eliminated.

But, Master has compassion towards all beings, including all cultivators. As long as you still want to cultivate, as long as you do not leave the path of Falun Dafa, Master will give you a chance and offer you salvation, so that you could return to heaven. Master clearly taught this Fa in1999 in “Teaching the Fa at the Western U.S. Fa Conference.”

This is my personal understanding. Please kindly point out any shortcomings.
