Wild turkey antics

Where Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim lives, out in the wild, I often have the most amazing encounters with animals of all sorts.  One day, not too long ago, I heard a big commotion outside, dogs barking, turkeys screeching (yes, they can screech), wings flapping.  Expecting the worst, I looked outside – and this is what I saw:

Thea, is that you??

Normally a brave JungSuwon-imal, she was scared.  She knows she simply is no match for 2 energetic German Shepherds!

She just wouldn’t come down!

Here is what this whole scene looked like from the inside:

Thea!  Don’t you remember what Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim has to say in such a situation, aside from admonishing you to take courage?

“Clinging to a good picture you have created possibly keeps you from expanding into an even greater good.  Clinging to a disagreeable picture keeps you there!  So, don’t hold onto either as though it’s the final story. ” (The Silent Master, page 100)

And as though she understood every word I said, soon enough she was her brave self, asserting herself in Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim’s garden.
