Editorial: One Can Only Cultivate by Being Rational and Clearheaded
(Minghui.org) Dafa has been spread widely and can save all savable sentient beings. The title “Fa-rectification Period Dafa Disciple” is an ever precious one. Yet there are always some people from various places who aren’t willing to become rational and truly cultivate themselves. They call themselves Dafa disciples, but have long been muddleheaded. Whenever the opportunity arises, they become irrational and eccentric, show off, try to capitalize on situations, make up something new just to be different, or use some other approach to satisfy their human desires via Dafa. As a result, not only do they fail to receive the true essence of Dafa cultivation, but also they serve as a disruption internally (among disciples) and tarnish the reputation of Dafa and Dafa disciples externally. In every phase there have been people such as this in various places, and in essence they have acted in a manner that aids the CCP’s special agents, thugs, and the 610 Office--who are under the control of the old forces--and helped those entities to reach their goals.
For example, when the shameless CCP agents created evil websites, these people soon followed right along. Not only did they ruin themselves, but they also helped to promote those wicked websites and ruined other people. When the CCP thugs created so-called forums, blogs, QQ chat rooms and the like, some people would immediately follow along and start falling for some personality cult, donating money to someone in order to supposedly “wash away sins,” or collecting funds on their behalf... When some people get attached to Master's family members, others elevate themselves in the name of Master's daughter and trick others into wrongdoing. When some people's attachment of fear remains, CCP thugs “help” them to leave Dafa for religions that epitomize the Age of Law’s End. Such things create a forum for evil interference and make it effective. The CCP's shameless agents must reap what they sow, and this is something dictated by the cosmos's Fa laws. But what about those people who obtained the Fa yet were destroyed because they could not become rational—won’t they also reap what they have sowed? Aren't they creating barriers to people’s salvation? Is that what your true self and main consciousness would want if it were clearheaded? Why do you insist on walking the path of ruin that others have taken before you, rather than learning from their lessons?
Master said in the 20th Anniversary Fa Teaching, “Whatever day history is to end on, that day cannot be delayed no matter what. There can only be changes made to specific things or what unfolds in the process. Things that are not done well will impact things later on, but this overall time frame cannot be extended. This isn’t a matter of Master being compassionate or not. The reality is, in the end, if anything that has been saved or re-formed is not what I want or does not reach my standard, it will have been for naught since it will have to be destroyed. This time cannot be exceeded. So, for the beings that cannot be saved, that’s just how it is.”
As long as the Fa-rectification is not over, there is still a chance for those who haven’t done well to return [to Dafa] and do well. But they must know to treasure the time given to them and realize that only by learning how to cultivate on the basis of the Fa will they manage to truly do well.
Master has repeatedly told us that in Dafa cultivation, one's main consciousness must be strong and one must cultivate with correct thoughts. Otherwise one cannot cultivate. The Dafa disciples who are doing true cultivation know that doing otherwise would equate to not walking the correct path that Master arranged, and that, otherwise, they could only walk the path arranged by the old forces. Were that to happen, not only could they not be saved, but they would also have no way to fulfill the sacred vows that they made to Master so long ago. We hope that all practitioners and Dafa disciples will study the Fa and obtain the Fa, and send righteous thoughts frequently, for only when your main consciousness is strong and you are rational and clearheaded are you able to truly cultivate your heart; are you able to negate the old forces' arrangements; are you no longer going to be manipulated by shameless CCP agents; and will you solidly do well the three things required by Master.
