(Clearwisdom.net) I started practicing Falun Gong in 1999. Because my thoughts were not righteous and I didn't study the “Fa” diligently, I didn't improve. Filthy thought karma kept coming up in my mind. I didn't change my cultivation state until 2006 when I fortunately met fellow practitioners who pulled me out of ordinary human society and helped me to start over in studying the Fa and doing the exercises. Of course, cultivation is my own matter. I will do my best to follow the requirements of our Master. I am not sure how many Falun Dafa practitioners there are who are not advancing diligently, but no matter how many there are, I am writing this article in order to truly change myself. I also hope it will help fellow practitioners.

For those practitioners who are not moving forward diligently, do you know where you're going in your future? Some practitioners might falsely think, "I know who I was in my previous life, and I think I was extraordinary and was a famous person." Or they say, "Somebody is my good friend and they will save me to their world." Be careful, for what you see may be a false impression if you pursue it with attachments. Cultivation is very serious, and it does not include sentimentality. No matter how famous you were in your previous life, those things belong to the past. If you do not diligently move forward and progress at the same rate as Fa-rectification, you will be looked down upon by Gods and treated as an ordinary person or even a bad person. The old forces will laugh at you and pull you to follow them. When Fa-rectification reaches the human world, it will be too late for you to regret it. Please wake up to the danger before it's too late!

Master Li says:

"No matter what, though, since the persecution hasn't ended, chances abound right now for those who have not stepped forward or not caught up with the progress of Fa-rectification. Do as well as you possibly can. That's what you should do. You need to seize the day. " (“Teaching the Fa in San Francisco,” 2005)

We must break through our selves, do the “three things” well, and move forward diligently.

If you treat yourself as a noble cultivator, your diligence in cultivation will shake the evil and frighten the dark minions, the rotten ghosts, and the evil spirit of the Chinese Communist Party that interferes with you in other dimensions. Of course they will interfere with you when they see you are cultivating. You may feel inferior about your cultivation. Don't feel inferior; that is not the true you. Don't be taken advantage of by the evil; your main consciousness must be strong. We must do ourselves proud for our Master. As Falun Dafa practitioners, we must have confidence with righteous thoughts and righteous actions. The practitioners who are diligent in cultivation can share their understandings with those who aren't diligently advancing and help them to walk every step of their paths well. I hope they will step forward, catch up with others, and surge forward at the same rate as Fa-rectification. I hope they will work as one body and fulfill their historic missions and great responsibilities with glory and honor.

The above is my current understanding. If anything is incorrect, please kindly point it out to me.
