Remember the last time you were worried about something?  You couldn’t stop thinking about it - “Did I lock the front door?” “I know I forgot something, what is it???”  At times, your thoughts would be consumed thinking about it, taking your focus away from what you should have been doing instead of obsessing.

 

 

Then, remember the flood of relief you felt when you turned around to go back home and you discovered that you had locked the door, or when you finally remembered you needed to call your bank about an odd looking charge on your statement.

 

That feeling of relief was the freedom you felt when those worrying thoughts dissipated.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In our lives, that feeling of freedom is essential in pursuing our goals with confidence, with minimum distraction, and with our success securely focused in our mind.

 

Now think about how jealousy, anger, depression and other negative emotions ‘rob’ your freedom to do what you want to do.

 

I always tell people - it’s OK to experience negativity.  You need to acknowledge it, then work towards letting it go.  This doesn’t mean you ignore things, it means you don’t let yourself be affected by the negativity.  You rise above it, see things with a satellite view, and then make decisions based on being rational, not being emotional.

 

 

We are bound to experience negativity often - how we react to it determines our freedom.  It’s our own choice.  If you want to work on not reacting emotionally, it takes practice.  First, recognize you have the power to receive negativity and block it from affecting you.  Then practice, practice, practice!  When it comes at you, pause, take a deep breath, even count to 10 if you have to, just don’t let the negativity control you.

The topic of Love encompasses many areas of our intricate lives.  Love is more than loving another person; it includes loving ourselves, accepting faults, practicing gratitude and loving through difficult situations, among many other things.

Did you celebrate Mother’s Day or Father's Day recently?  Like we do on that special holiday, it’s important to express gratitude for our mothers, fathers and parental figures in our lives, every day!  Even if you weren’t close to your mom or dad, chances are there was some adult whose opinion of you mattered.

Why do we often wait to only once a year to tell someone how much they are appreciated or how much they’ve helped us?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Try some spontaneous kindness and see how it makes the recipient feel, and pay attention to the wonderful feelings that you’ll also participate in.  Think of gratitude and kindness as like any other skill that you want to master in life – it just takes practice!

While you’re spreading some thoughtfulness to others, don’t forget about you!  We can be our own worse critics, but there’s a lot we do really well.  Determine each day to get to know yourself a little better and get to know what’s true for you – and have fun doing it!

Remember my question from the beginning of Seven Steps to Inner Power?

 

 

Asking this and seeking the answer is absolutely essential if you wish to express your fullest potential in life.  Loving yourself is an important part of the answer.

Here is an excerpt from my book, SEVEN STEPS TO INNER POWER.  As you read through this, think about times when you may have felt your Silent Master.

Waiting quietly within you is a presence, a force, a state of consciousness that gives you the power to harmonize and change discordant situations, the power to create and to achieve goals.  It gives you the power to experience peace and joy regardless of the circumstances around you - the power to be who you really are.  In Jung SuWon, we refer to this presence within as the Silent Master or Silent Master Consciousness.

When you tap into the consciousness of the Silent Master within, you begin to take control of your life.  You may have been drifting through life before; now you are driving through life and toward your goals.  You experience a new sense of freedom, creativity, purpose, and peace of mind.  You find yourself glad to be alive every day for the sheer pleasure of experiencing life - of experiencing yourself.

The keys from the art of Jung SuWon that you'll explore here will help you awaken to this powerful presence within and empower you to recognize and express the qualities of your Silent Master in your daily life.  As you open to your true potential in this way, you'll discover more of your beauty, your strength, and your courage.

At the core of the philosophy I teach are six truths about your Silent Master.  I call them "Silent Master images" and you'll understand why when you read the section on visualization, or, as I call it, "future memory."  In essence, these images describe who you truly are and the awesome power you have within you now to shape your life.  As you move through this book, you'll learn much more about these foundational concepts and how to put them into action in your life.  Here I'll simply touch on these truths to give you a brief introduction to them.  For now, think of each one as a seed-thought designed to blossom into a practical understanding of your true being and power as you contemplate "Who am I?"  Give yourself complete freedom and permission to fall in love with who you are and you are becoming.

Here is an excerpt from my book, The Silent Master: Awakening the Power Within:

Are you willing to start making some changes? Are you willing to take even some small actions to start creating your freedom? Sometimes after students set a goal, they feel they don't know where to start. When they ask me about it, I tell them to start anywhere...Just start! Start with the following actions:

Set Realistic Goals

In order to produce the kind of big change that makes you free of being a victim, you start with little changes. Some people make the mistake of expecting too much from themselves, then get easily disappointed and give up. If you've spent the last twenty years handling all your conflicts with anger, you will not be a tranquil "saint" tomorrow. It may take a lot of time and work to remove this habit. So, even though you set the elimination of anger as a goal, you also set a smaller realistic goal: Today, during the two hours when I visit my mother in law, I will practice listening to her and responding with love no matter what she says. Or, you could set a goal like this: Today, I will go to the person I threatened and yelled at, apologize, and negotiate a good solution to our problem. Practicing these small changes eventually produces the big change: one day you realize that you don't respond with anger any more.

READY FOR FREEDOM?
THEN GET READY TO TAKE ACTION

So many times I see students go to lectures, read books, take classes, and get really excited about some new goal. They do this new thing for a while. They talk about it, and talk about it some more. And then pretty soon, they're couch potatoes again. They're in front of the television, staring out of glazed eyes, mouth watering from watching fast food and beer commercials, and the only action they're taking is through a traffic jam to the refrigerator instead action for their lives!

You've heard the expression, "Nothing succeeds like success." Here's another: "Nothing changes you like change." When you are finally ready to claim your freedom, when you're really ready to stop being a victim and take charge of your life, you are ready to make a change. Change means to take action not to talk about it, not to give up after an enthusiastic start, not to hold back in fear, but to actually do something.

Making changes helps set you free by opening up many more alternatives and options for you. A person who knows just one way of doing something, just one way of being, is not as free as the person who can choose from many options. Some of the actions you will need to take involve making changes that encourage you to look at additional options.

Here is an excerpt from my book, The Silent Master: Awakening the Power Within:

Here on earth you live with many other people and many other nations. Since you can't control everything that happens in the world, freedom means you control how you respond to the world. You control who you are, what you think and how you feel, and that shapes everything you experience. Freedom means you express your power to realize your goals and desires, so that nothing can take away your natural joy to be alive.

You are free when you can be the purity of yourself no matter what happens to you or to the world and when you allow the purity of yourself to always shine under all circumstances. The light of your own energy can chase away any darkness for you and promote healing problems that confront you. You are your true creative Self, and you create your own freedom by using your power to develop, protect, and express your life on your terms.

Freedom does not mean being free from adversity or difficulty. Freedom is the knowledge you have the power to conquer adversity and difficulty. If you could ask any animal living free in the animal kingdom, they would tell you they aren't free from "trouble." Predators are everywhere, and life is a daily challenge. It takes effort! But all animals were born with instincts to protect them, and were given special talents and abilities to help them stay alive and pursue their life in freedom. It is the same for you. Living with over four billion other people on Earth, you will not be entirely free from "trouble" of many kinds. But the wisdom, intelligence and creative power of your Silent Master is with you always to guide, protect and support you. Freedom is knowing you are connected to this power source and that you can put it into action to conquer adversity.

You, and you alone, have the power to make yourself free, because taking charge of your life is a choice. Since you have within you right now your Silent Master consciousness, the creative Life Force of the universe, all you need do is choose to discover it. And then there's only one more step needed to complete your freedom: Take action!

Here is an excerpt from my book, The Silent Master: Awakening the Power Within:

WHAT IS FREEDOM?

To me, one of the most perfect pictures of freedom is nature in the wild. Birds are free to fly wherever their instincts take them, to the highest mountain or to the water's edge. Bears, rabbits, deer, creatures of all names and sizes, freely roam the land, each finding their food and shelter in their own individual way. Animals freely express their unique individuality. No animal tries to be like another. Mountain lions don't try to live like deer or eat their food. Rabbits don't try to hibernate like bears. All animals take their individuality for granted, "trusting" that nature provides everything necessary to fulfill their every need.

And the elements of nature are also free and joyous, expressing and contributing their gifts abundantly. The sun shines faithfully and warmly no matter what happens on the planet below. Rivers flow through their native surroundings bringing food for life. And beauty is everywhere. The clouds, winds, rainbows, butterflies, light filtered through the forest trees all come together in a beautiful picture of harmony.

You are a part of all this! Freedom, beauty, and originality for you is exactly the same as for nature's beings and elements. You are an original! An individual, unique and special. You have your own talents and abilities, and don't have to imitate anyone else, or want what they have. You have your own special purpose. To discover your Silent Master is to realize you have the power to create your own freedom. Living free means you put your freedom into action. You are the one in charge of the direction of your life. You don't let life happen to you. You don't let yourself be a victim.

MEDITATION

Right now, I can express my Silent Master. Today, and every day, I can express more of my true Self. Love within me is showing me true desires and true directions that bring me peace and joy and harmony. I am one with the Love of my Silent Master, so I can hear the voice of Love talk to me every moment, guiding me with true thoughts, ideas, and attitudes which help me create my greatest good. I willingly let go of every trait and every desire that is not my true Self. I let go of every person, place or thing that is not part of my true being and my true purpose. I can allow pure Love to shine through me and attract everything good to me. The potential for everything that I need to fulfill myself is within me now, and I am allowing Love, my creative energy, to bring it to me in the right way at the right time.
