Strength

Here is an excerpt from my book, Seven Steps to Inner Power:

 

 Dr Tae Yun Kim Quotes

“He Can Do, She Can Do, Why Not Me?”

This is a saying I teach students who are studying the physical form of Jung SuWon. This saying has several meanings that apply equally to mental, spiritual, and physical power.

 Dr Tae Yun Kim Quotes

First, on a physical level, it means that physical strength and the knowledge of self defense derived from physical Jung SuWon training are available to both men and women alike. No one is limited by gender. Remember:

IMAGE I

Your Silent Master is

your Real Self, your

original Self. It expresses

Itself through your

thinking, through true

Ideas and Thoughts

in your mind…

“Strength” is one of the ideas expressed by your Silent Master Consciousness. It is part of your identity whether you are a man or a woman. Because strength is an idea, can the idea of strength be “stronger” in a man than in a woman? No. Ideas don’t come in degrees of intensity. Ideas are just themselves, and they are the same in the minds of both men and women. Because I know this, and because I know strength is an idea belonging to my original self, I know I can manifest it; therefore, speaking for myself, I am not limited by my four foot eleven inch, ninety pound body when defending against an attacker of much greater size and weight. I’ve proved it numerous times.”

Physical Training Is Overcoming Limitation

Here is an excerpt from my book, Seven Steps to Inner Power:

 

Dr. Tae Yun Kim Quotes

“Physical Training Is Overcoming Limitation

 Dr. Tae Yun Kim Quotes

Certainly, increased physical strength and the knowledge of self defense are desirable rewards of Jung SuWon martial art training; they reduce fear and weakness and build true confidence and self esteem. Tae Kwon Do, Shotokan Karate, and Kung Fu are all similar in the origins of their basic forms. But the quality of physical training in Jung SuWon depends directly on the extent to which the spiritual training is applied. Learning the martial art moves and forms, learning how to spar effectively with an opponent, and demonstrating extraordinary physical feats (breaking bricks with your bare hand) require that you use all the principles of awareness, balance, visualization, commitment—all the rules of mental conduct—as well as the seven principles of inner power.

Training in the physical form of Jung SuWon requires that you focus all these ideas within the parameters of this structured art form and that you develop yourself and measure your progress in a disciplined manner. Your training, then, can be a feedback system, letting you know where you stand in taking control of your mind and body.”

Dr Tae Yun Kim Quotes

” Jung SuWon Physical Training

 Up to this point, I have been concerned primarily with explaining the mental and spiritual concepts of Jung SuWon. But this art form also has a physical system, and learning the physical form of Jung SuWon is a practical and tangible way to put the spiritual principles of Jung SuWon into practice and to bring you into contact with your Silent Master Consciousness.

 Your mind and body are one. Therefore, when you practice the Jung SuWon physical form along with the seven mental and spiritual principles, you develop your whole being, not your mind only, not your body only.

Dr Tae Yun Kim Quotes

 In this chapter, then, we will discuss several aspects of the physical training in Jung SuWon and the unique benefits available to you. Many of you who read this book will not have the opportunity to learn the physical aspects of Jung SuWon. But you can still apply the principles in your physical life, in your physical activities. “

Our actions are guaranteed to affect others

In my book, Seven Steps to Inner Power:

Dr. Tae Yun Kim Quotes

“Our actions are guaranteed to affect others. Because we are not alone in this world, much of our learning about ourselves comes from our interaction with others. Our relationships are our teachers. We learn from each other.

There’s a story I’m fond of that illustrates how we, as individuals, can make our own hell or heaven when we attempt to live together. This is hell: ten people are seated at a dining table. They have abundant food in front of them, but the chopsticks they’re required to use are all three feet long. When they try to eat, they discover that the size of the chopsticks makes it impossible to feed themselves. They’re all starving, quarreling, and fighting because they feel so thwarted and miserable.

Dr. Tae Yun Kim Quotes

This is heaven: ten people are at the same table with the same chopsticks. They are all happy, well fed, having a wonderful, peaceful time together. These people were unconcerned that they couldn’t feed themselves with these long chopsticks. They used them to feed each other! The needs of every individual were met when they cooperated with each other, when they worked together.

Everyone and everything that comes into your awareness was drawn there by you. Therefore, as we go about our daily lives, we can have some grace; rather than regarding ourselves as victims, we can serenely see ourselves as the creators or co-creators of every moment. As individuals we create our private worlds, and collectively with other members of the planetary body we create our larger world. Regard every situation, then, private or global, as an opportunity to practice the truth of your being in your thought and actions, your being only. When you’re being the best person you can be, don’t be surprised if you find others transforming along with you!”

True Patience

Here is an excerpt from my book, Seven Steps to Inner Power:

 

Dr. Tae Yun Kim Quotes

Dr. Tae Yun Kim Quotes

“True patience is knowing the truth and expecting the truth to manifest. This knowing and expecting is the process of being your Silent Master Consciousness. Thus, when you express this true patience, you think as your Silent Master thinks. You keep the power turned on as you wait knowingly for the manifestation to appear at its appointed time.

These seven principles of inner power are all intimately related to each other. You cannot fully practice one without including the others. That is, to practice Body and Mind as One, you need to practice Truth, Purity, Love, Loyalty, Sacrifice, and Patience, also. In reality, there’s no such thing as, Today I’m working on purity. Each and every day, you work on all these principles.

As you make these qualities real in your everyday life, remember that what you are really practicing is your beingness, your selfhood, your Silent Master. You’re not asking yourself to be anything that’s not real or not possible. Your Silent Master is your only true self. As you are joyfully and expectantly practicing these seven principles, you are becoming your Silent Master. Unlike the caterpillar, usually we do not make our transformation in the darkness of a private space. Yet, ultimately, each of us is alone; each of us is a private individual. But we are alone together in a world of many people. Thus, our transformation is worked out in the world classroom. Much of our learning will be out in the open, composed of many small actions that will, step by step and moment by moment, create changes just as startling as the caterpillar’s transformation. One painting is composed of thousands and thousands of brush strokes.”

Patience is the last step in this creative process

Here is an excerpt from my book, Seven Steps to Inner Power:

 

 

Patience

 Let’s assume you have a goal. You’ve acted with your body and mind as one, you have expressed truth, purity, love, loyalty, and you’ve sacrificed all mental and physical obstacles. Yet, the goal has yet to be realized. What’s left?

 Patience is the last step in this creative process. It is here that some impatient people may allow all their hard work to backslide.

 One of nature’s most beautiful symbols of patience is the transformation—the metamorphosis—of the caterpillar into a butterfly, when the outward picture of the caterpillar’s “beingness” changes drastically from one form to another. Perhaps you have a situation that needs just such a radical transformation. If you desire to make a change as great as this, consider how the quality of patience is essential.

 For a certain period, the caterpillar ingests food to enable it to grow to a certain point. This is a distinct period of time that cannot be rushed. When that point is reached, it then forms a cocoon in which it must wait for another period of time. A transformation occurs in the quiet cocoon that cannot be rushed or disturbed. Then at last, at the appointed time, a butterfly emerges, a different creature altogether from the caterpillar, who then reproduces so that the cycle begins all over again.

 As the caterpillar goes through this transformation, there is something like trust going on, isn’t there? Patience and trust. The laws of nature that enforce the caterpillar’s miraculous transformation are absolute. All that’s required in cooperating with the law is patience and trust.

 The laws of manifestation that govern our being are just as absolute. We likewise must have the patience and trust to let them work.

Sacrifice

In my book, Seven Steps to Inner Power:

Dr. Tae Yun Kim Quotes

“Sacrifice

 When you have a goal that is a priority, and when you commit your total loyalty to this cause, you will undoubtedly make decisions about competing priorities in your life.

Remember the example of preparing to train for a marathon race? Attending every party in town could not be an equal priority to working out every day. One or the other must be chosen, the other sacrificed.

When your Silent Master gives you a desire, It will never ask you to sacrifice something you need. That is contrary to Its nature of love. When you find yourself at a crossroads and you must make a choice, look closely to see if the so called sacrifice is really a loss. Usually, the things we give up to achieve a goal are no longer needed or are unworthy of keeping. If you give up laziness to keep your workout schedule, is that a loss? If you give up fear while learning something new, is that a loss? If you give up smoking to train for the race, is that a loss?

When we discussed increase and decrease with the yin-yang symbol, we said that every decrease (the black yin area) carries with it the seed of some new increase (the white dot in the black). Decrease is destined to turn into increase. So, even a real sacrifice is not ever really a loss. It is preparation for a new condition.

Many times it appears we are forced into a crossroads situation and we have to make a choice, a sacrifice. Sometimes, however, we can freely and willingly sacrifice certain states of mind to make room for the new.

The word “sacrifice” is derived from the Latin words sacer, meaning holy, and facer, meaning “to make.” Sacrifice means “to make holy.” So, when you sacrifice your weaknesses, fears, and limitations, you’re actually loving yourself, making yourself holy by expressing your truth and purity This is a joyful, expanding process, no matter how painful it may appear on the surface.

Sacrifice leads to patience.”

Loyalty

Here is an excerpt from my book, Seven Steps to Inner Power:

 

Dr Tae Yun Kim Quotes

“Loyalty is a supreme act of love. Suppose you had a friend who gave you money when you were out of work, gave you a place to live when you had no home, saved your life when you were in trouble, told you to call anytime you needed help. Is this friend worthy of your loyalty? If one day this person asked you for your support, wouldn’t you gladly give it, even if it involved some kind of sacrifice on your part? Most likely, you would do anything you could for this friend. Your loyalty would know no bounds.

If this is what you would do for a friend, how about your Self? What are you willing to do for it? Aren’t you deserving of your own loyalty? How much loyalty are you willing to show your Silent Master, the infinite part of you constantly standing ready, like a friend, to give you everything?

Your Silent Master knows Its worth and value, knows It deserves all your love, energy, support—and loyalty. It knows It is truth, purity, and love—your truth, purity, and love. Thus, loyalty to your Silent Master is putting your real self forward with confidence, conviction, determination, purpose, power, and love. Show your loyalty! And as you do, you move as One with your Silent Master.

Loyalty leads to Sacrifice.”

 Why does love lead to loyalty

Here is an excerpt from my book, Seven Steps to Inner Power:

 

Dr Tae Yun Kim Quotes

“Loyalty

 Why does love lead to loyalty?

 Love is its own reward. The wonderful feeling of love generated from expressing your real self naturally leads you to value your real self even more. Then, the more you value your real self, the more you love. This momentum of love is the essence of loyalty, so loyalty is the result of perpetuating, reinforcing, and expressing your real self by loving it.

 And how do you love yourself? By being your real self. There is no greater way to love your real self than by being It. That is loyalty.

 Here’s an interesting thought you may not be aware of. The word “loyal” is derived from the Latin word legalis, which means “legal.” Thus, loyal includes the meaning of legal, which means “bound by law.” So, when you are loyal to your real self, when you are loyal to true and pure ideas about yourself, you invite the law of manifestation to operate and bring forth your real self. Loyalty is an act of acknowledging this law, an act of recognizing that whatever you are mentally loyal to is bound to take form.

 Loyalty, then, is a lot like gratitude because they are both acts of recognizing or acknowledging an idea. Whatever you’re loyal to, you recognize. Whatever you recognize, you think about. Whatever you think recognize, you think about. Whatever you think about, you manifest.

 If you act with your body and mind as one, if you know the truth about yourself, if you express purity and love, you have done much to achieve your goal. It is at this point you must exercise loyalty to your cause so you bring your vision to completion, so you do not give up, turn back, regress, or undermine yourself.”

Live a fuller, happier life

In my book, Seven Steps to Inner Power:

 

Dr Tae Yun Kim Quotes

“Thus, when you identify with a true idea through your gratitude, you feel the force of the love it contains. Feeling this love, you send it out again as greater, expanding gratitude. Then before you know it, your love is growing to appreciate more and more of the world around you—people, wildlife, nature, events. Ultimately, your consciousness becomes love, which you feel and express and which comes back to you everywhere in every way, as beauty, harmony, and peace.

 So it is, when you express gratitude, you connect with the Universal Love that is your Silent Master Consciousness. You find love within yourself first, by recognizing the truth of who you are. Then, as you express your purity, you automatically begin to feel the love that is a part of all true ideas. You are loved, loving, lovely, and lovable. You are love.

 Your awareness of love leads to loyalty.”
