(Minghui.org) It has been over a month since Minghui first published the notice asking for articles for this year’s World Falun Dafa Day. There are less than two weeks before the deadline. Our cultivation experiences validate the Fa, so I hope that we can break through our notions, and use this great opportunity that Master has given us for improving as a whole and treasure the time left. Let's pick up our sacred pens and write down our cultivation stories.

I often help local practitioners submit articles. In the past, I usually had to encourage them to write and many waited until the last minute. But this year has been different and I feel very happy and touched. So far I already helped six practitioners submit their articles to Minghui, and they all took the initiative to write them.

I was recently passing by an elderly practitioner’s home and to my surprise, she had already finished writing her article. She wrote about how her daughter-in-law’s view towards her changed over time. At first, because she had been jailed for her faith, her daughter-in-law was afraid and worried. Gradually, her daughter-in-law witnessed her kindness and was very touched. On her birthday this year, her daughter-in-law wrote “Best Mom in the World” on her birthday cake. This tells us that when Dafa practitioners follow Master’s teachings and cultivate compassion and kindness, they have a positive impact on their families and friends, thus changing their views of Dafa.

Another practitioner was imprisoned in my cell when we were detained. He was sentenced to jail once and to forced labor twice. For over 20 years, his daughter was always supportive of him and his wife practicing Dafa. He wrote an article about his experiences the same night that Minghui’s notice was published. The next day I showed him how to submit articles on Minghui, and he did it himself. His daughter, son-in-law, and two granddaughters all quit the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) and its affiliated organizations. Their entire family is very happy and they are blessed by Dafa.

Another practitioner, who started to practice in 2016, gave me her article to submit to Minghui. She talked about several stories. Every year during the Dragon Boat Festival, she ties colorful strings for others and she takes the opportunity to clarify the facts and tell them “Falun Dafa is good; Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” She also clarifies the facts on buses. She talked about how she uses Master’s arrangements to save people and cultivate herself. Her stories are simple, yet very warm and touching.

After my wife saw Minghui’s notice at noon on March 5, that entire afternoon she kept writing. By dinner she had finished. I typed it up, edited it, and submitted it to Minghui as quickly as I could. This was the fastest she’s ever written something. I think Dafa practitioners should be like this – when they plan to do something, they should just do it and not delay.

I feel very encouraged by the other practitioners’ enthusiastic response this year, but I’ve also heard some practitioners saying, “I don’t know how to write,” “I’m barely literate,” or “I haven’t cultivated well enough.” In fact we all know that if it’s something that practitioners are supposed to do, as long as we are determined to do it, we will be able to do it well.

I hope that those practitioners who have not submitted articles will pick up the sacred pens that Master gave us and share their stories. Our cultivation experiences validate the Fa and will help more people in the world know the facts and be saved.
