(Minghui.org) Shortly after the outbreak of coronavirus pandemic, Master published the article “Rationality.” A group of us who regularly call China to clarify the truth have been reading the article three times a week since it was published. It wasn’t until recently did I realize Master’s immense compassion in this article to get us ready for the future outbreak and prevent us from wasting our time worrying about the virus. It strengthened our righteous thoughts so that we can continue to do the three things fearlessly. 

In the past week, the pandemic situation in Taiwan quickly worsened and I have heard thoughts among practitioners that surprised me. 

The goal of the old forces was to lock everyone at home so as to prevent us practitioners from going outside to talk to people about Falun Dafa. Though we need to conform to the ordinary human society, we must be clearheaded about the situation and should not acknowledge the old forces’ arrangement.

We probably all remember the sacred scene we saw on May 1 when 5,000 practitioners lined up to form characters to celebrate World Falun Dafa Day. This is the first time we saw divinity with my physical eyes. Practitioners with the celestial eye open explained in detail the magnificent scenes they saw that day. 

Why was the divine scene shown to us then? I believe that it was to strengthen our righteous thoughts before the change of the cosmic climate. It was just like when Master let practitioners in China see a lot of miracles prior to the persecution that took place in July 1999. 

I believe that if practitioners in Taiwan can form one body and negate the old forces’ arrangements with their righteous thoughts and actions, we can turn things around.

While many countries have surging death cases during this pandemic, it wasn’t the case in Taiwan. As practitioners, we all know that Master protected us. Hence we shouldn’t be complacent like an ordinary person and must continue to remain rational and clearheaded. 

Master says, 

“When clarifying the truth, do not place yourselves among ordinary people, and only when you position yourselves well will you not get swept into the chaos, and only then will you do a better job.” (“To the Fa Conference in Taiwan”)

So far the environment for truth clarification is getting difficult. But practitioners are coming up with amazing ideas to create a good environment and clarify the truth. I often think that we are truly fortunate to be Falun Dafa practitioners in Taiwan. Perhaps we have suffered and worked hard in our past lives to deserve this. When we eliminate our attachment to comfort and when all of us wake up in this last moment of history, we can turn the tide with an energy that is more powerful than we’ll ever know. There will be so many lives saved at the last moment. 

The pandemic outbreak in my opinion could be the test Master prepared for practitioners in Taiwan. Is it to help the practitioners improve and weed out disqualified ones? Of course, that’s just my own understanding and there might be more to it. 

Master says in “Rationality,”

“Those among Dafa disciples who are not diligent or have gone to extremes, hurry and set yourselves straight; study the Fa and cultivate yourselves sincerely because you are amid the gravest danger.”

I hope this sharing can encourage fellow practitioners. Let us do better and let the spirit of “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” echo in the human world! This is my first ever sharing article. Please point out any incorrect views.
