(Minghui.org) I am a young Falun Dafa practitioner. I used to only do the first, third, fourth, and fifth Dafa exercises. I skipped the second one because I found it too hard. I was afraid that I couldn't endure the pain for that length of time and lost the confidence to do it.

In a dream one day, I saw a fire in the hallway of my house. After I woke up, I realized that this was a hint from Master Li, the founder of Falun Dafa. It carried a sense of urgency to complete all the exercises. I made up my mind to do them all.

On March 22, 2021, I decided to extend the time I would do the second exercise from 30 minutes to one hour. Before I started, I said to myself that I could do it with Master’s support. The first two positions were easy, and I felt very relaxed. But by the third position, “Holding the Wheel Above the Head,” my hands started to tremble, and I was getting really tired. Then I thought, “How I can be confident about saving people if I can’t even complete these exercises? Many veteran practitioners are out on the streets raising awareness about the persecution under tremendous pressure and in all kinds of weather.” With that thought, I was able to endure to the end.

I had a very clear dream that night. I was standing on a wall and wanted to get to another wall that was higher and some distance away. It seemed impossible to jump that far. Someone on the ground then shouted, “I can help you. I will bring two bundles of firewood. You can step on them, one at a time, and you will be able to cross over to the other wall.”

With his guidance, I was able to get to the other wall. Looking down from that higher wall, I was very happy.

I realized that was Master’s encouragement and that I was improving in my cultivation by extending the time I did the second exercise to one hour.
