Majestic Blue Heron

May 3, 2017

Dr. Tae Yun Kim loves all wildlife, and on her estate lives a magnificent Blue heron.  These beautiful birds really live what Dr. Tae Yun Kim is teaching.  She tells people at her lectures and her studio, that we have so much to learn from nature.  To us, the concept of body and mind as one seems so difficult.  To animals, there is no other way – they have it programmed into them.  There never is any separation.

The blue heron knows that when it is hungry, it is time to hunt and get food.  It isn’t worried about any what if I don’t find food.  What if my feathers aren’t arranged right.  All it knows is that it is hungry and therefore it must find food.  When it has young ones, they know they have to take care of their young.  They must protect them and feed them.

We as humans are capable of so much more, and yet often fall so short of what we could be.  So let’s not waste any time, Dr. Tae Yun Kim reminds us.  Let’s move forward and achieve our future memories!

Celeste always reminds me of Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim‘s words about freedom to be who you are born to be!

“You were born to be free!  Just as nature is full of wildlife that is born in freedom, you, too, are meant to live free.  You are a part of nature, too.  And there is no greater freedom than to be the master of your own destiny.  There is no greater happiness than to be who you are in truth – not a copy or an imitation of someone else, but rather, your own original self.

When you know who you are, you experience yourself as unique, as one-of-a-kind.  You have a special place and a special purpose in being here.  No one can take your place in life or in the universe.  When you know who you really are, you become free because you realize you can be in charge of your life.  You learn to use the natural power within you to realize your true desires, to set meaningful goals for yourself, and to fulfill them successfully.”
(The Silent Master, page 2)
