[PureInsight.org] The ancients said, "An inch of time is as valuable as an inch of gold, but an inch of gold cannot buy an inch of time.”
Time flows like water; once it passes, it does not return. Under the care of our great and merciful Master, we have walked through twenty long years of trials and hardships in our journey of cultivation during Fa-rectification.
In the past two decades of cultivation during Fa-rectification, Master’s teachings, short and long, all emphasize the importance of clarifying the truth and saving people. Master said in Fa Teaching at the 2019 New York Fa Conference, "How could it be okay to not do that when so many people are waiting to be saved?! Even I am helping you do that! Saving non-practitioners is supposed to be your responsibility. [The way it’s supposed to be is that] I save you, and you save them. Now I am even helping you do it, so if you don’t do it, are you a Dafa disciple? How are you going to fare at the end, when accounts are finally settled? At that point it will be too late for crying.” We abandoned the aura of gods and signed a contract with Master to follow Him to earth — to help Master with Fa-rectification and save all sentient beings. Master has already completed Fa-rectification affairs in other dimensions, and all that’s left is the earth. Because we have not saved enough people, the end has been postponed. Master has used his endurance that we are unable to imagine for us to continue day after day!
In the congratulatory message “To the Canada Fa Conference,” Master told disciples that the hardest years have passed. Master said in To the Canada Fa Conference, "Do well what remains to be done, and head toward the future with a cultivation journey free of regret. I wish you much enlightenment and success!" and in Fa Teaching at the 2019 New York Fa Conference "I can tell you explicitly that early on I had planned on ending the persecution this year (warm applause), at the twenty-year mark." Our cultivation time is urgent, and now every minute and second is related to the survival of all beings. Under such circumstances, we must cherish every minute and every second, hurry and cultivate ourselves well, and leave our houses to clarify the truth and save people.
Everyday I practice the five sets of exercises at 3:50 am, send forth righteous thoughts at 6 am, and study the Fa for around one hour. Then I go out to save people in the morning and study the Fa again in the afternoon. Sentient beings are all waiting for us to save them. While clarifying the truth face-to-face, I have encountered many touching stories: a young student who learned the truth and quit the CCP put his hands together in front of his chest and said, "I wish that my grandmother would be blessed like the eastern sea and live long like the southern mountain.” A middle-aged woman who learned the truth and quit the CCP was thankful to me, “I have met a noble person”……
We have all seen on the Epoch Times website that the number of people who quit the CCP every day is only 60,000 to 80,000 people. How many total Dafa disciples are there in the world? How many of them can go out and clarify the truth every day? Every day, do we prioritize important matters like helping Master with Fa-rectification and saving sentient beings? This is not intended to blame, but to communicate the idea.
In fact, Master has paved the way for us and is just waiting for us to do it, and we are just moving around and talking to people. While our fellow practitioners in mainland China are smelting themselves in the large alchemy furnace of mainland China, they are saving people at the same time. Even if every practitioner saves one person every day, it is worth celebrating! Master chose us as Dafa disciples and gave us everything. The gods of the whole universe are envious. How lucky we are! We have no way to repay Master! Only by cultivating ourselves well, honoring our vows, and saving more people can we be worthy of the great title of Dafa disciple! I have not lived up to Master’s compassion and salvation! Fellow practitioners! There is not much time left for Fa-rectification, so hurry and come out! The sentient beings of your kingdom know that Fa-rectification is ending soon, and they are all anxiously waiting for you to save them. However, for the sake of our “selfishness," we have "locked" ourselves in our homes to "protect" ourselves and do not come out to save them for fear of being persecuted and fear of loved ones being scared. Fear is a dead end on a cultivator’s path to consummation. It must be removed! Master is here. The Fa is here. What is there to be afraid of? Master said in To the Fa Conference in France, “You are the hope of humankind. Get going and get active, and, like the Dafa disciples in North America, don’t shy away from the difficulties that you meet with. Don’t be blocked by man-made constraints. And don’t be intimidated by the evil, for these historic days are given to you.”
We must recognize that "fear" is not our true self; it is a postnatally acquired notion! It wraps around our true self like a shell. We use the boundless power of Dafa to cultivate away this shell. Our true self is a god. The evil does not dare to come near us. Master said in Fa Teaching at the 2015 West Coast Fa Conference, “You should just firm up your righteous thoughts, and do well with what you need to do. If you can manage to really do well in all three regards, nobody will dare to touch you.” Being unable to come out to clarify the truth and save sentient beings is not living up to Master’s compassion and suffering! It is also letting down those sentient beings who are eagerly waiting for us to save them! At the same time, it is also violating our vows!
