Jung SuWon warrior animals: Be true to Yourself

I have been watching Ferdinand and his family a lot – since they come right into my yard – and their new friend Sophie, who, by the way, lives in my yard. 

Even though they like to hang out together, I noticed that Sophie only stays with Ferdinand in a certain areas of the yard, but doesn’t follow him anywhere else.  This puzzled me, since they seemed to enjoy  each other’s company.  But then I realized:  Ferdinand and his family can fly, but Sophie cannot!  The only way she can escape from danger, is to climb up a tree, or structure!  And that is why they are always together under the oak trees! 

Even animals know what Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim is teaching at Jung SuWon:  be true to your self.  Be who you are!  Don’t try to be someone else!  A dolphin is beautiful in his own right and has many great qualities, but it will never be an eagle.  Likewise, the eagly is awe inspiring and has his own excellent qualities, but he would not do well in the water.  And so the dolphin should be the best dolphin he can be, and the eagle also needs to remain an eagly and not try to be a dolphin.

So, Ferdinand will always be a turkey and he can – and should – fly when necessary.  Sophie, as a squirrel – will never be able to fly, and so will always need to stay around climbable structures.  And while they are so different, nevertheless they get along well together in the small area that they can be together.

As Grandmaster Kim always reminds us, there is so much we can learn from animals, out there, in the wild….
