What they saw reflected the realities of different dimensions.
One's understanding of the Fa principles, inborn quality, enlightenment quality, xinxing,

Hence, it is very hard to find two persons at exactly the same level
among 10,000 people. As a result, it is normal to have different
understandings about anything or any event.
The important thing is how cultivators deal with various opinions.
Cultivators should maintain a clear head and measure everything by the
standards of the Fa, be compassionate toward other cultivators, and
apply mutual tolerance. Whoever can let go of his own opinion elevates.
Elevating in level and saving sentient beings become fundamental and arguing who is right or wrong becomes unnecessary.
