(Minghui.org) I have read Teacher Li’s newly published lecture given at the Epoch Times and New Tang Dynasty Media Fa Conference multiple times. I gained new understandings each time. It seems that every time I finished reading the new lecture, I saw it from a different perspective and came to a deeper understanding of the teachings. I became more and more aware of my gaps and know that I still have a long way to go on the path of cultivation.

Dafa Disciples Are the Only Hope for Sentient Beings

In this lecture, Teacher explained everything clearly and answered all of my questions. He pointed out that Dafa disciples are the only ones who can achieve the goal of saving sentient beings.

In fact, Teacher has told us many times in the past that Dafa disciples are the only hope for sentient beings, but we seem to have forgotten that. Some even stopped studying the Fa, became muddle-headed, and immersed themselves in ordinary society. In the Dharma-ending era, moral standards are deteriorating, so it is easy to drift along with everyday society and forget why you came to this human realm.

Remove All Attachments

Most Dafa disciples are doing well. They know not to be disturbed by political events and to focus on doing the three things well. But some disciples prioritize their pursuits for fame and fortune over cultivation in Dafa. They seem to have forgotten what cultivation is, why they cultivate, and what the final goal of cultivation is. They have not pondered these questions for a long time and, thus, some have fallen.

We know not to rely on ordinary people, but some disciples repeat the same mistakes over and over again. They are not mature in cultivation and are disappointed when the results are the opposite of what they expected. Cultivation will end up in vain if one continues to seek comfort, relies on others, and remains anxious for the Fa-rectification to end.

There Are No Shortcuts

There are no shortcuts in cultivation, so Dafa disciples should all cultivate solidly. It is the same with saving people, and we ought to do our best. Everything must be purified to be worthy of existence in the new cosmos because that is what Teacher wants.

The principles of the old cosmos and the troubles of the old forces can only disrupt the lives in the old cosmos. The beings that are truly assimilated to Dafa should not be affected or interfered with. The primary goal for all that happens in the world now is to awaken those who still have a conscience. The most sacred beings emerge from the most disorderly. Let us be our true selves, genuinely cultivate in Dafa, and consummate with the utmost magnificence.

Please kindly point out anything that is inappropriate. Heshi!
