(Minghui.org) We are now at the last stage of the Fa-rectification period. Master Li has endured a great deal of karma for the people of the world in order to postpone the end of Fa-rectification so that Falun Dafa practitioners can save more people.

At the 2014 San Francisco Fa Conference Master said, “Saving people is a Dafa disciple’s responsibility, and you absolutely cannot shirk it! When the old forces really find you unacceptable, you are in danger! That’s because your life, your being, came here for this.”

Some practitioners take the responsibility of saving people very seriously and are very diligent. They are out on the streets every day to clarify the truth to people, regardless of the heat of summer or the cold of winter.

However, there are also many practitioners who haven't recognized this responsibility and who have shown varying degrees of laxness, numbness, selfishness and fear.

Because they are not focusing on saving people, the old forces take advantage of these practitioners' loopholes, interfering with their cultivation. Some of these practitioners cling to family, including children or grandchildren; some are tied to their careers, and a few have exhibited illness symptoms and died in a short time.

The following are examples that illustrate the degree of commitment shown by many Dafa practitioners in carrying out their responsibilities.

Three practitioners teamed up to distribute Minghui truth-clarifying New Year calendars in mid-December. They passed out more than 700 calendars in a short period of time.

Two practitioners teamed up to clarify the truth and through their efforts, 19 people quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) in one-and-a-half hours.

Several elderly practitioners often walked over mountain roads to surrounding townships and villages to offer salvation to people. They save more than 120 people a week on average, and the number is increasing every week.

However, though we are all cultivating the same Fa and Master has given us unbeatable supernatural powers, some practitioners haven't fulfilled their prehistoric vows. Some are fearful while distributing truth-clarification materials and some haven't persuaded anyone to quit the Party yet.

Showing no fear of the persecution, one 80-year-old practitioner passes out fliers and persuades people to quit the CCP every day.

Occasionally, a person might bluntly refuse her. Not deterred, she continues to talk to the person with compassion. She often says, “It is a predestined relationship to meet you. It is your good fortune to meet me. I am 80 years old and healthy because of Falun Dafa.

“I don't want anything from you by coming out in such cold weather. I just want to bring you good fortune and hope you can avoid the coming tribulation.”

People feel her compassion and change their attitude. They learn the truth and often encourage others to listen to what she has to say.

Several practitioners from a Fa-study group worked together to hang truth-clarification banners and post self-adhesive stickers in high places. One year later, some of their banners are still hanging and some of their posted messages are still visible in highly trafficked areas.

The same group of practitioners also worked tirelessly to make and distribute truth-clarification calendars, which have had a good impact on people.

Looking at these practitioners who are diligently saving people, we should motivate ourselves to do well during the last stage of our cultivation.

However, I'd like to remind those who may feel the urgency and set out to save people out of fear of being left behind: only divine beings can save people. A practitioner must maintain strong righteous thoughts and be in a divine being's mindset to save people. So please don't just mimic what others have done, but rather, do what you think you should do based on your own understanding.

For those who are truly afraid, I suggest that you study the Fa and send forth righteous thoughts more, instead of forcing yourself to clarify the truth face to face.

For those who have been doing well in saving people, please maintain righteous thoughts and ask Master to strengthen you, because being safe enables us to save more people and it is a big blow to the evil.

Fellow practitioners, let's encourage each other and turn Master's wish into reality.

The above is my personal understanding. Please kindly point out anything inappropriate.
