(Clearwisdom.net) It sounds so unusual! A group of older women whose ages run from 56 to 76 organized a material distribution site. The highest education level among us is elementary school; the lowest is just learning to read. If Jiang Zemin and the CCP hadn't persecuted Falun Gong, we would never have learned these highly technical things. However, now we can get on the Internet, download files, print materials, and we know about MP3's, electronic books, and how to copy CDs. We are able to do almost everything necessary for producing materials on our own.

Our material distribution site is responsible for providing new articles to local practitioners, saving sentient beings and doing well the three things. We didn't miss anything such as Master's new articles, Minghui Weekly, Minghui flyers, editor's articles or the notice to correct words. At the same time, we have sent twelve articles to the Minghui/Clearwisdom website this year. In distributing the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party and advising people to quit the CCP and its related organizations, we are even more active. Every day there are people quitting the CCP and its related organizations, from at least eight or ten per day to more than 70 per day.

What we have done was to not acknowledge anything that the old forces put upon us including old age, poor eyesight, poor memory, low education and so on. We deny anything that does not conform with Dafa or is against the Fa- rectification. We only walk along the cultivation path that Master has arranged for us.

In order to do well the three things, studying the Fa is fundamentally important. We get up at 4:30 a.m. First we practice the fifth exercise, the sitting meditation. At 6 a.m. we send forth righteous thoughts. From 6:15 a.m. to 7:30 a.m., we study and recite the Fa. At 8 a.m., after sending forth righteous thoughts, we turn on the machine and start to print the materials. Besides sending forth righteous thoughts simultaneously with fellow practitioners globally, every hour at night, we try to continually send righteous thoughts and not give evils any time to take a breath. From 8 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., we practice the four standing exercises. From 10 p.m. to midnight, we study the Fa, recite the Fa, and prepare for the next day. We also schedule two half days per week to do group study. Our schedule has been carried out solidly.

"Study Fa, obtain Fa,
Compare in studying, compare in cultivating,
Examine each and every deed,
Accomplishing is cultivating."

("Solid Cultivation", Hongyin, translation version B)

The purpose in studying the Fa is to measure our every thought and our every behavior and to cultivate ourselves according to the Fa. If the environment improves, it is the power of the Fa; otherwise, there must be loopholes within us, and we should immediately look inward and correct ourselves. For example, if the machine has been interfered with, there must be someone who over- slept, did not send forth righteous thoughts, did not recite the Fa or is not in a good state.

Master said,

"Once humankind's conventional mentalities form a systematic way of working and thinking, new ideas are very difficult to accept. When the truth emerges, people do not dare to accept it and instinctively reject it." (Zhuan Falun)

Mentioning age, we have been part of ordinary society for over half a century and many old conventions have been formed. The common ones are stubbornness and an impetuous temperament. Impetuousness can bring a mentality such as preferring to do certain things. When such a mentality arises, one will be unable to send forth righteous thoughts calmly and be unable to concentrate during the Fa study or doing the exercises.

Evil will take advantage of every loophole we may have and interrupt the machine so it won't run normally, which may arouse our impatience. The more we are impatient, the less calm and pure we are. When one's mind is not pure, one may complain to fellow practitioners and complain about the machine. It forms a bad cycle. Through studying the Fa, we suddenly realized the reason. The old forces had found a loophole and strengthened and amplified it. They tried to pull us back and obstruct us from assimilating to the Fa. We must: find it, catch it and dissolve it; ask Master to help us; eliminate all the old notions that were formed in the post-natal life and are not compatible with "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance." We eliminate them every day and persistently. All along, we can feel the apparent influence of the old forces becoming weaker and weaker. The process of doing things naturally becomes the process of cultivation. Our minds are more pure and our physical bodies are becoming younger and younger.

Writing articles is also a cultivation process. If the Minghui/Clearwisdom website does not select our article, we realize we didn't keep up with the Fa-rectification process. We should study the Fa more and try to catch up. If the article is published on the Minghui site, we will first make sure we do not have the attachment of complacency, showing-off, or fame. If a thought does not conform to Dafa, we immediately correct it. No matter whether the article is selected or not, it is our new starting point and our impetus to cultivate diligently and solidly.

We all have two ages. In cultivating diligently and solidly, we often warn ourselves that since we have an older physical age, we must use every minute and second and cannot be slack. Such an opportunity will never happen again in millions of years. In studying the Fa, reciting the Fa and studying modern technology, we regard the time since we attained the Fa as our age. We deny the older physical age and poor eyesight that the old forces put upon us and ask Master to open up our wisdom. In reciting the Fa, we spur each other on to see who advances the fastest. The oldest practitioner, in fact, went the fastest. She recited one sentence after another that was separated by "a full stop" and her mind became more and more clear. With her reciting the Fa, her very strong eyeglasses are no longer needed. More and more of her hair is turning black. Her teeth that used to be loose are strong and tight again. With her diligent recitation of the Fa, she does better and better on the three things. The machine operates more smoothly. Her family environment is more harmonious.

Our material site has been operating for more than two years. We have formed a self-contained and indestructible group. For two years, we felt that Master has been always with us. Master knows our thoughts. For example, Master asked us to "establish small-scale material sites, like flowers blossoming everywhere." When we had a thought to set up a material production site, Master arranged for a fellow practitioner who knew the technology and worked at another location to come back. When the "830U"printer first malfunctioned, I opened up the screen and many words showed up on the screen that I didn't know at all. "How can we use it? Master, please open up your disciple's wisdom." Shortly afterwards, the mouse automatically moved to an option and stopped there. I clicked it and another menu appeared with an "ok" at the corner. I clicked "ok" since I didn't know the other words at all. Soon the machine started to work. Later the red light turned off. The machine could operate happily again.

Before the 2006 Chinese New Year, in order to meet the requirements of fellow practitioners who assist Master in saving sentient beings, our PC and two ink printers of 830U and C65 ran continuously for four days around the clock. After the New Year, we wanted to study how to maintain and protect the printers. After checking out the technology sharing section on Minghui website, we realized how extraordinary our machines were. Under normal circumstances, an ink printer should have a break after printing a few hundred sheets of paper. For four days straight, we printed over 10,000 copies without turning off the machines. Falun Dafa is so extraordinary. Only the new beings that Dafa created can have such a supernormal ability.

The article, "The Closer to the End, the More Diligent You Should Be", is to encourage us and to encourage practitioners who haven't stepped forward yet. Such an opportunity will never happen again in a million years. To those who still hold old notions and think we are involved in politics in clarifying the truth, distributing the Nine Commentaries, and urging people to quit the CCP and its related organizations, wake up! At our age, we have been through so many political movements of the evil party. The essence of the CCP's "politics" can be described in two words - "killing people." Every so-called "political movement" in the past is to kill people. The CCP's "politics" is the murderer's weapon. We are not involved in politics, but are trying to save people from the butcher knife of the evil party and the demon's claws.

Above is just my personal understanding. Please point out anything improper.
