My Understanding of the End of Fa-Rectification
(Minghui.org) Several fellow practitioners have recently published articles about their attachment to when the Fa-rectification will end. I have the same attachment. While I was cleaning up after breakfast this morning, a question came to my mind, “When is the Fa-rectification going to end?” I felt impatient and disappointed that it has gone on for so long. It was a painful feeling.
I calmed down after a few minutes. I asked myself how I could have had such a lack of faith. After examining my xinxing, I found that lack of faith wasn't the only problem I had. Ever since I started cultivating myself, I have wanted to reach Consummation, and thought it wouldn't take too long. I treated it as my motivation to stay diligent. It has been my goal for the past several years.
I have been looking forward to the day Fa-rectification ends since the persecution began in 1999. I thought that it would end any day when the tide of suing former Communist Party leader Jiang Zemin began to surge. I thought that it would be all over when Jiang was brought to trial.
I watched the number of lawsuits closely, and felt saddened while reading persecution details in fellow practitioners' criminal complaints. I kept having the frustrating thought that it will be a long time until Fa-rectification ends. I sent forth righteous thoughts to eliminate this attachment. I deeply felt that my attachments to time and Consummation were a huge obstacle on my path of cultivation. Doesn't an attachment to time show that I am afraid of being persecuted? It's in fact due to a lack of faith in Master.
This attachment is a wild thought that I should disintegrate.
Master has told us, “Clear out all wild thoughts, Cultivating to a Buddha is not hard.” (“Nonexistence” from Hong Yin)
The real manifestation of the end of Fa-rectification must be different from what I can imagine. What I'm attached to is what I imagine Consummation will look like and what Heaven looks like. I should stop imagining and focus on doing the three things well.
I hope my fellow practitioners will help each other pass this test. I was really shocked that I harbored this attachment for so long. My understanding is that we are simply obstructed by our own notions. We will see boundless skies when we break through this notion. Fellow practitioners, let's walk the path together well to help Master rectify the Fa. It's our mission.
The above is my limited understanding. Please kindly point out anything inappropriate.
