Treating Veteran Practitioners' "Sickness Karma" and Xinxing Tests From the Perspective of Fa-Rectification

A Dafa Practitioner from China

[] Currently, some practitioners are experiencing xinxing (mind nature) tests and tribulations resembling those in the personal cultivation practice. Some of them have severe symptoms of illnesses, while others are acutely troubled by monetary and sentimental issues.

For those new students who obtained the Fa after July 20, 1999, Master has clearly told us:

...your cultivation process is merged with your Fa-validation process, and in order for you to catch up, your personal cultivation accompanies your validating the Fa, and both of them progress simultaneously.

(From "Teaching and Explaining the Fa at the Metropolitan New York Fa Conference") For veteran practitioners who obtained the Fa before July 20, 1999, Master said:

Except for newer students, from July 20 of 1999 on, Master hasn't created any personal cultivation tests for you, and that's because overall your personal cultivation has changed in every respect so that it's in the direction of saving sentient beings and validating Dafa.

(From "Explaining the Fa During the 2003 Lantern Festival at the U.S. West Fa Conference")

Then why do some veteran practitioners encounter xinxing tests and tribulations similar to those in the personal cultivation practice? If I may humbly say, I think perhaps we should look at this issue from the perspective of Fa-rectification.

First, the massive force of Master's Fa-rectification is rapidly breaking through the most surface dimension in which we live, while our most surface, material bodies are also being transformed into divine bodies. The two are interrelated. [Teacher said:

At present, the situation manifest in human society is very similar to the situation of the Fa-rectification in the cosmos.

(From "Teaching the Fa at the 2004 Western U.S. Fa Conference," Draft Version)] The issues that are being resolved in the large universe during Fa-rectification will inevitably be reflected in our small universes. It is my understanding that, as Fa-rectification's massive force is on its way to the more surface dimension, the problems will appear to be more noticeable and severe, and the bad things hidden most deeply by our Fa-validation efforts in the past will be exposed to the surface level.

Second, in order to take charge of Fa-rectification and have everything they want, the evil old forces not only made detailed arrangements for the overall Fa-rectification, but also made detailed arrangements for every single practitioner's cultivation. I think the old forces' goal is to strictly limit us to our personal cultivation. I believe that those personal cultivation issues that some veteran practitioners are experiencing have quite a bit to do with the old forces arrangements.

Thirdly, we still have karma and bad notions, and the evil beings can use them as an excuse to interfere with and persecute us. Of course, there may also be certain unknown elements behind those "personal cultivation issues" that are beyond our knowledge.

In my opinion, the "sickness karma" and xinxing tests that some veteran practitioners are experiencing are beyond the scope of their personal cultivation practice. As Fa-rectification period Dafa disciples, we must walk righteously on our own path according to the Fa's requirements. So, first, we should overcome tribulations with our righteous thoughts and righteous actions, use them to eliminate interference and overcome xinxing tests. By doing so, we will in fact be denying the old force's arrangements. Also, if we do well in ordinary people's society and manifest the beauty and magnificence of Falun Dafa in the human world, then our actions would actually have the effects of validating Dafa and offering people Master's salvation. We should look at the "sickness karma" and tribulations experienced by some veteran practitioners from the perspective of Fa-rectification, not as part of their personal cultivation, since that would be acknowledging the old force's arrangements. I believe that our attitude towards these "sickness karma" and xinxing tests has to do with Master's Fa-rectification and our offering people Master's salvation.

Master said:

You're Dafa disciples, so if you want to do well going forward you need to focus on cultivation more.

(From "Teaching the Fa at the 2003 Midwest-U.S. Fa Conference")

I believe that it is important that we thoroughly study Master's Fa principles in relation to the Fa-rectification, while we are actively and directly validating Dafa and offering people Master's salvation. Meanwhile, I believe that we should also treat veteran practitioners' "illness karma" and xinxing tests with righteous thoughts and righteous actions. [As for fellow practitioners who obtained the Fa after July 20, 1999,] may I remind you that, while trying to upgrade your xinxing, you will also be eliminating your karma. Yet all of us, I believe, should try to positively influence everything around us with our righteous demeanor so as to indirectly validate Dafa and offer people Teacher's salvation.
