DeeDee the dove expresses gratitude

April 8, 2017

Here is DeeDee, when I saw her last.  She was just a couple of months old, and ready to become independent.  She is a California mourning dove, and the sweetest bird I ever knew.

Dr. Tae Yun Kim‘s home in California was a great place for little birds to grow up in.  Here is a picture of DeeDee when she was just a tiny hatchling:

Dr. Tae Yun Kim loves animals of all kinds, and is especially fond of birds, and makes sure they have a safe haven on her estate.

Momma Dottie is watching out and knows that this huge thing with the camera in hand is just me and is no harm to her or her young ones.  In fact she knows I protect them from the ever-present crows.

Here is DeeDee almost grown up, already Dottie had put her out of the nest but still kept coming back to make sure she’s safe and to feed her.

Dr. Tae Yun Kim has always reminded me how beautiful animals are and how they express their gratitude.

The day DeeDee was ready to leave for good, she hung around the house closer than usual.  She made sure she saw me, and I saw her.  And this was not imagination running wild.  DeeDee really did wait until I saw her.  She looked at me for a long time and let me come real close.  I almost heard her tell me that she was happy for her beautiful childhood her and so grateful we watched over her and kept chasing the crows away.

Dee Dee good bye

Finally, as all birds must do, she knew it was time to start her very own life journey, and she flew away.  She circled a few times very close, and then disappeared into the big oak trees.

Yes, I had a tear or two….as always when a baby leaves.

 

We live in a wonderful time called now

I know it’s hard to imagine we can learn something from goats.  But really, look at this little one right here.  Isn’t he/she expressing who they are?  Aren’t they living in the here and now like we are meant to do?

Have we met before?

Consider what Dr. Tae Yun Kim is saying on this topic:

“You live in a wonderful time called now.  In this moment everything true about you is waiting to be recognized and expressed.  Everything in the past is gone.  Tomorrow will never come. There is always only now.  You can take charge, take action, and create freedom for yourself.

Right here and right now let’s start celebrating!  Freedom is real.  Freedom is possible.  You have power, truth, beauty and potential within you always waiting to be discovered, always waiting to be expressed.  What is stopping you?  What is holding you back?  You are free to be free!

(The Silent Master, page 162)

See now what I mean?  Let’s enjoy life and be who we were born to be!

If Dogs could talk…

The other night as I was sitting at my computer, Dr. Tae Yun Kim‘s German Shepherd came up to me and looked me in the eyes, very deeply.  “You know,” he said, with a little hint of sadness in his voice, “I am almost two years old and you still haven’t blogged about me yet.”

Oh Oh!  He cheered up considerably after I invited him to be today’s guest blogger.  Here we go!

Hey folks!  This is me, Chung Song, German Shepherd, proud protector and companion of my Master, Dr. Tae Yun Kim.  In the picture up there, you see me on the first day I came to Dr. Kim.  I was barely 4 months old and after 2 days of almost non stop driving we finally made it home.  At first I was so scared and was hiding under the car, but Dr. Kim was so nice and made it so much fun I forgot about being scared.  I love playing games and still do to this day.  There was another dog there already, and she has turned out to be my best doggie friend.  She is really awesome and her name is Sarang.

Sometimes it gets really hot – and I know when it’s hot you go in the shade.  Simple!  If you can’t find shade, you have to be creative and make your own!  See?  I hear Dr. Kim tell the humans that the power is in them and it is their personal choice what you do in your life!  And us dogs, it applies to us too!

Why Coyotes can teach us a lot

January 25, 2017

Who is that peeking out from under tall grass and underbrush?  Yes, that’s Corey, Corinna’s cub.  He feels quite safe there and he knows that I wouldn’t do anything to attract mommy’s attention.  Coyotes are highly protective of their young and will fiercely protect them.

You might wonder what we can learn from coyotes.  Well, for one, Dr. Tae Yun Kim emphasizes how we can learn from every animal, every plant, every piece of nature.  They are God’s creations and they all have something to tell us.

Even Coyotes.  Many farmers and rancher view them as dangerous predators, and they are absolutely right.  Yet coyotes are very intelligent animals who work together and plan their hunt together.  They know the power of teamwork.

But even when they are temporarily by themselves, they know what Dr. Tae Yun Kim teaches us humans:

“Too much of the time we feel controlled by forces outside us, when in fact, the goal of life is to realize that all those ‘forces’ are made of the same energy we are.  We are one with this energy and we can participate with it; we can transform and direct it instead of letting it just act on us.”

(The First Element, page 124)

Corinne sure seems to feel confident and at one with nature around her!

The Power of Hummingbirds

January 4, 2017

Hummingbirds are amazing creatures.  They are very beautiful, very wise, strong, resourceful.  In fact, it’s quite mind-blowing how these tiny little creatures are so powerful, and go through the day with such purpose and determination!

They remind me of something I just read in Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim‘s book “The First Element.”

“A tiny bird unborn bird pecks away at his shell hundreds of times for no other reason than to be born!  For no other reason than to be who he is.  He follows the life-force as far as his purpose directs.” (The First Element, page 137)

How beautiful!  I am striving to be just like such a little bird, to fulfill my purpose!

But Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim takes this way further.

“But you!  You are born with so much more capability than this little bird.  If you are not living your life with the same enthusiasm of a supernova, exploding to fill your space with energy to build an create and transform, you are still inside a dark shell.  If you are sitting around doing nothing more than feeling sorry for yourself, then you are not even as true and honest as the little bird, who at least honors his life force by pecking his way out into the world!”

What great motivation!  Every time I see a tiny little bird I remember these lines and I feel so encouraged to go and achieve my 2017 goals!

Babies in the Doves’ nest!

Me and my mommy

We now know that Davey and Dotty set up their nest in the big tall palm tree right outside Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim‘s kitchen window.  It’s out-of-the-way of predators, and a great place for raising baby birds!

Birdie kiss

True Love

I am hungry

I am sooo hungry!

Whenever I see such beautiful young baby birds I am reminded of Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim‘s words:

“You are one with the All the Power of the Universe! Wake up to the little miracles around you right now and appreciate the power of the universal life force.  This is your power we are talking about, your intelligence!

These miracles we take for granted every day are pictures of your own life force in motion.  A tiny unborn  bird pecks away at his shell hundreds of times for no other reason than to be born!  For no other reason than to be who he is.  He follows the life force as far as his purpose directs.

But you!  You are born with so much more capability than this little bird.  If you are not living your life with the same enthusiasm of a supernova, exploding to fill your space with energy to build and create and transform, you are still inside a dark shell.  If you are sitting around doing nothing more than feeling sorry for yourself, then you are not even as true and honest as the little bird, who at least honors his life force by pecking his way out into the world.

I am asking you to come out and start appreciating this life force that brought you here!”

(The First Element, page 137)

I may be small, but I am a warrior!

My dear deer

deer baby 8

Oh oh!  Do you see that hint of mischief in Desiree’s eye?  What could she be thinking?

One quick look over her shoulder….and off she goes….

Desiree is drawn to the trash can!  The color is so pretty!

And now she’s got her sister Deanna to come and investigate as well!  Come on Jung Suwon-imals – remember what Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim says about how your environment influences you?

“Energy from our environment is impacting us all the time.  All the objects in any particular environment are made of energy, radiate energy, and absorb energy.  After spending some time in a certain room, and finding our mood is changing, we will most likely say, Whats wrong with me?”  The problem may be due to a particular energy from the room, and not something personal.  For instance, furniture bears the energetic imprint of the person who crafted it as well as other owners or users of it.  Have you noticed that sometimes you are attracted – or repelled – by some object by “something” other than just its aesthetic value.

So its important to clear away objects associated with past circumstances you are trying to change.” (The Silent Master, page 54)

Come on you two – you know that you shouldnt hang out around trash can no matter how nice you think they look !  Think about the energy they have!

Good!  They are back home in their more usual environment, right on Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim‘s property…out of harms way.
