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, where I discuss visualization:

A Powerful Tool for Turning Ideas into Form

As I sat in the fields and watched the moon flowers gently open at night, I was also amazed that, even in the moonlight, their color was beautiful.  I remember having the thought that surely our ideas of color come from nature.  I thought about how often people look at flowers or a beautiful sunset and want to imitate those colors somehow - in art, in clothing, in many ways.  Isn't it interesting that the purity of nature, its original natural beauty, inspires us to capture it or duplicate it?  Certainly, that is one form of visualization - reproducing in representative ways what we see in the world around us.

Although ideas seem quite invisible compare to moon flowers or sunsets, they are as real and inspiring.  Aren't you just as excited by a wonderful new idea as you are to experience something rare and beautiful in nature?  In the same way that the world of nature inspires us to imitate its beauty, so we are naturally impelled to capture the beauty of true ideas in material form.

 

Remember that the true ideas that come to you are coming from your Silent Master: "Your Silent Master is your real self, your original self.  It expresses itself through your thinking, through true ideas and thoughts in your mind."  Those ideas are the primal, original source of everything that manifests in visible form.  In fact, the word idea is derived from the Greek root word that means "to see."  So an idea automatically carries with it the concept of visibility.  Haven't you noticed that when you understand an idea, you usually say, "I see."  In our universe, we turn ideas into material form.  Visualization is a powerful tool for doing so.

Visualization is the process of forming a mental image. The process of forming images in our mind is also called imagining, something most of us do with relative ease.  The word image comes from the same Latin root as the word imitate.  This means that when we form an image, we are imitating, or creating a likeness of, something else.  That something else is an idea. All images, whether those you see outside yourself or those you see in your mind's eye, are visible duplications of some idea.

I recently shared this Bible passage in one of my coaching classes.

Galatians 6 New International Version (NIV)

Doing Good to All

Brothers and sisters, if someone is caught in a sin, you who live by the Spirit should restore that person gently. But watch yourselves, or you also may be tempted. Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ. If anyone thinks they are somethingwhen they are not, they deceive themselves. Each one should test their own actions. Then they can take pride in themselves alone, without comparing themselves to someone else, for each one should carry their own load. Nevertheless, the one who receives instruction in the word should share all good things with their instructor.

Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life. Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. 10 Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.

This passage speaks to me of watching out for my loved ones and helping those that are in need.  At the same time, I need to make sure that I’m conducting myself humbly.

A lot of times, I notice someone saying something out of line, or doing something that could later lead to problems, but I don’t step forward to say anything.  I tend to feel like I don’t want to speak up because I might hurt that person’s feelings.  But, this is a really backward way of thinking!

helping-others

If I see a friend doing something wrong, I’m supposed to reach out and help them!  Why would I ever think that keeping quiet would bring any benefits?  If I saw a friend walking out into traffic, I’d for sure yell out to them, chase after them and do everything I could to save their life.  When I see someone doing something that is potentially damaging, but not immediately life threatening, I should treat it with the same urgency.

help-others

This passage also says in verse 1, “But watch yourselves, or you may also be tempted.”  To me, this means that as I’m trying to help someone else, I have to watch myself, or I could fall into the same problem that I’m trying to help my friend get out of.  Verse 3 says, “If anyone thinks they are something when they are not, they deceive themselves.”  This tells me that I have to keep myself in check to make sure I don’t become arrogant in my attempts to help others.  I can’t forget that I also make mistakes and also need help from others.

These are tenets of life that I can apply in so many areas – not just with family and friends, but with all that I interact with.

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

WILL   

Dr Tae Yun Kim Quotes
Where Have You Focused Your Will?
When you become ready for something new, you must be willing to work toward your goal. Being willing means two things: It means you are open to experience something new, and it means you use your will power to focus on it and persevere until it is accomplished. When you desire to discover your Silent Master consciousness, your pursuit begins with your will to find it. Your Silent Master consciousness is already within you, but you must seek it actively and with perseverance.

Dr Tae Yun Kim Quotes

 The first step to take in the readiness stage of self discovery is to take charge of your thinking.  Every response that you make to your environment and every action you take (or don't take) is propelled by some decision, choice, or response that you make in your thinking.  The three most important aspects of your thinking to take charge of are will, motivation, and attitude.  As we discuss these three areas, I will refer to the five principles of mental conduct, which are an important part of the Jung SuWon training I teach.  These five principles enable you to take charge of your thinking so that your mental activity supports you rather than sabotages you:

1. Identify your fears and weaknesses and conquer them.

2. Learn from your mistakes.

3. Know you have the ability to do, the capacity to act, and the capability to perform and produce.

4. Have determination and a quality purpose.

5. Have a positive mental attitude.
