Time, the Universe and Fa-Rectification
Time is now a god interfering with Dafa disciples’ rectifying the Fa. Many students still don’t have a clear understanding of what time actually is. They think that time is quite powerful, and that he will always control us. This is true for humans, but not for Dafa disciples. If we can really understand the nature of time from the principles of the Fa, we can then break through the interference time has imposed on us.
Then what is time actually? I would like to share some personal understandings here.
Time has many dimensions. The time of our dimension, also the time that can limit our physical body, is actually a god within the Three Realms. He does not restrain our Buddha body, which is composed of microscopic particles. Not understanding the true nature of time interferes with Fa-rectification.
First let’s consider the time in our dimension. Time is related to the structure of the universe. Everything in the entire Three Realms is of the same source material. By Three Realms, I mean not only the solar system, but also all things made of molecules. This includes other celestial bodies in this galaxy, small universes, and even more. Since they are all composed of molecules, they have all developed from the same source material. More microscopically, molecules are followed by atoms, atomic nuclei, electrons, neutrons, quarks, neutrinos, and so on, including the most basic particle of this system. Everything from this basic particle to the largest particles in the Three Realms (thousands of layers of universes) is all of the same source material. This is a horizontal system.
The universe is made up of basic particles. The big system we humans live in is also formed by the basic particles of our system. But they are fundamentally different from the world of a Buddha. This entire system is a place for humans (in a broad sense) to live and is within the Three Realms. No matter how microscopic, everything formed by these particles is within the Three Realms; no matter how great, every living being made up of these particles and materials is a being within the Three Realms.
The basic particles in the Three Realms are arranged and combined to form bigger particles. These particles are again arranged and combined to form the basic elements of different dimensions, such as time and light. The elements then form everything in every dimension. The time in our dimension is also formed by particles in the Three Realms. He is also a life form within the Three Realms. In actuality, time is a life form in every dimension within the Three Realms. Because they are gods within the Three Realms, they can control humans in the same dimensions. But they are all of the same source material.
Buddhas’ worlds are beyond this system. More microscopic source materials form their systems. They are also horizontal. The source materials in these systems form basic particles; these particles then form bigger particles and the basic elements such as time. The basic elements then form other beings in various dimensions. These “times” are completely different from the time in our human dimension, because they are composed of different source materials.
The even higher Buddhas have worlds made up of higher source materials. They are a different system. However, these higher systems can no longer be explained by the concept of particles or time.
As to our cultivation, we try to cultivate to higher systems. When we enter the closest vertical dimension, which is the realm of Buddhahood composed of atoms, our body no longer has the time particle of our original dimension. When we cultivate even higher, we can escape from the time in the realm of Buddha. Eventually we can reach a realm where the concept of time doesn’t exist.
Dafa disciples participating in Fa-rectification need to rectify all that is warped in the realms below us. Everyone has a corresponding universe, and we also need to rectify all that is warped in that universe. Fa-rectification is not limited to humans; it also includes higher beings. As Dafa disciples, we have to break through our own notions of being cultivators and having no power to influence gods. We came to attain the Fa and participate in Fa-rectification from very high realms. If we can’t accomplish our mission and meet our requirements as Fa-rectification disciples, then are we still Fa-rectification disciples? Fa-rectification disciples have to do more than handing out flyers in this human world and telling the truth to people. We also need to use our pure Gong to clear all that is warped in higher realms. We shouldn’t slight our own power. In a sense, we will become lords of various dimensions (not ordinary Buddhas, Taos, and Gods). Since we will rectify a large number of universes, shouldn’t we be the lords there? Who else has more mighty virtue? This is an opportunity the Teacher has given us, and we must cherish it. All beings will be repositioned in Fa-rectification.
Then shouldn’t “time” in various dimensions be rectified as well? Fa-rectification encompasses rectifying all that is warped. When our minds are very clear in the Fa and principles, all warped things interfering with us will disappear. When a Dafa disciple really understands his historic mission, a giant will rise from debris to begin a new world. We should get rid of all interfering warped things like shaking dust off our clothes. They can’t control us at all. Because we are pure from the very source particles, we can rectify all that’s not righteous, and make it harmonious with the Fa.
Dafa disciples are of very high realms, and that’s why they are qualified to participate in Fa-rectification. The things that are interfering with us, such as emotions, time, and sleepiness, are all beings formed by particles within the Three Realms. How can they interfere with us? When we have very strong righteous thoughts, they can’t interfere with us at all.
Then why can they interfere with us sometimes? Because our body within the Three Realms is also being changed from the source, from smaller particles to bigger particles. Until our body is completely transformed, gods such as time will have some influence on us. But the influence is already very weak. Only with a body within the Three Realms can we cultivate and make progress; otherwise we don’t have anything to enlighten to. At the same time, we can use our strong righteous thoughts to break through their interference. How can a god within the Three Realms control Dafa disciples who are magnificent Buddhas, Taos, and Gods, and even Lords of different levels?! The cultivated side of Dafa disciples is rectifying warped gods at very high levels. How can these low-level gods easily interfere with us?
The faster we break though it, the more powerful we are, and the bigger our area of Fa-rectification becomes. Be diligent, fellow practitioners! Magnificent new universes are waiting for us. What attachment can’t we give up?
This is just my personal understanding. Please point out anything improper.
