(Minghui.org) The April 18 deadline for article submissions in celebration of the 2014 Falun Dafa Day is fast approaching. When I recently went to group Fa study, I asked how the article-writing was progressing. Most people in the group said they never intended to write an article and their excuse was that they felt they had not cultivated themselves well.

One elderly practitioner is well known for doing a good job of truth clarification, so everyone looked at her. One practitioner said, “You should submit an article.” Another said, “Yes, you should write one.” Everyone chimed in to encourage this one practitioner.

I smiled and said, “It's each and every practitioner's duty to submit an experience-sharing article. Why are we focusing on her alone? Aren't we all part of this ourselves? This is a good opportunity to report on our cultivation and express our gratitude to Master. It's also a chance to save people.”

When students take an exam they must answer the questions on their own. They cannot rely on others. Master has given us so much. Do we really have nothing to say?

This is my personal understanding. Fellow practitioners, please point out anything inappropriate.
