(Minghui.org) I’m a 70-year-old Falun Dafa practitioner. I injured my left wrist working in the countryside in 1968 when I was assigned to educate urban youth. I continued to work with one hand. After that, I wasn't able to use my left hand for any heavy work. 

I started practicing Falun Dafa in October 1998. My left wrist, left arm, left shoulder, and left leg hurt badly when I did the Falun Standing Stance. It was difficult for me to hold the correct postures for half-an-hour. My hand and arm weren't aligned properly, and I couldn’t keep my left hand as high as my ear. This problem troubled me for years.

One day, I made up my mind to do the exercise movements correctly. Looking into a mirror with my back against a wall, I corrected my gestures even though it hurt. I persisted in doing it. My daughter tried to help as well. No matter how painful it was, I continued to hold the correct posture. I made up my mind to finish the hour-long Falun Standing Stance. When I was out of breath, I recited in my mind “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance” and Master’s poem:

“A Great Enlightened One fears no hardshipHaving forged an adamantine willFree of attachment to living or dyingHe walks the path of Fa-rectificationconfident and poised” (“Righteous Thoughts and Righteous Actions,” Hong YinVolume II, English Translation Version A)

Day after day I endured the pain as I did the second exercise. Master’s teaching often came to my mind,

“To consummate yourself, reaping Buddhahood,Let joy be found in hardship.Physical pains count little as suffering,Indeed, cultivating mind is hardest.” (“Tempering the Will,” Hong Yin, English Translation Version A)

One day, my left wrist really started to hurt while I was meditating--as if someone were stabbing it with a needle. At the end of the meditation, I looked at my wrist and saw that the bone that had been sticking out had been restored to its correct position. There was no scar. The pain was gone in about 10 days.

Now my left hand and arm are straight. My standing stance positions look correct. My arm doesn’t hurt, either. 

As Master told us, 

“When disciples have ample righteous thoughtsMaster has the power to turn back the tide”(“The Master-Disciple Bond,” Hong YinVolume II, English Translation Version A)

Thank you, great compassionate Master, for all you have endured for me!
