(Minghui.org) During the 2020 US general election, some fellow practitioners discussed various prophecies, ancient and modern, Chinese and foreign. They were very enthusiastic and excited about the “Chosen One.” But when the results did not meet their expectations, they were disappointed and their cultivation states were affected a great deal. The publication of the Minghui sharing article “Thoughts on the End Time for Fa Rectification and Prophecies” dealt them another blow, and they felt it was hard to bear.

In our area, there is also a group of veteran practitioners who have been solidly cultivating over the years without let-up. They do the exercises, study the Fa teachings, send righteous thoughts, and listen to Minghui podcast articles daily. They go out regularly in small groups to clarify the truth face-to-face and distribute Dafa information.

The current affairs did not have much impact on these veteran practitioners. Their response to the above-mentioned article was: “Why do you think so much? We believe that everything is under the Divine's control, and it is Master's arrangement. We just listen to Master's guidance: do the three things that Dafa disciples should do, seize the time to learn the Fa, send forth righteous thoughts, and cultivate ourselves well. The best way to assist with Master's Fa-rectification is to clarify the truth more, save more sentient beings, and fulfill our historic vows.”

Indeed, the persecution has been going on for more than 20 years, and the lessons we’ve learned are profound.

Master taught us:

“As I've said, everything that happens today in the ordinary society is the result of Dafa disciples' thoughts.” (“Teaching the Fa at the 2002 Fa Conference in Philadelphia, U.S.A.,” Collected Fa Teachings, Vol. II)

Master also said:

“I remember that, before July 20, 1999, our Toronto Fa conference was held here. (Enthusiastic applause) At that time, when the evil CCP's suppression and persecution were about to begin, I said something to you: I said that just by remaining unmoved you could handle all situations.” (“Teaching the Fa at the 2005 Canada Fa Conference,” Collected Fa Teachings, Vol. V)

If every Dafa disciple can do what Master requires of us under any circumstances, then the situation of the Fa-rectification in the human world will not be what it is now.
