Earl the Bald Eagle shows how to enjoy Food

January 12, 2017

Earl, the Bald Eagle, really shows us how to live.  Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim has been emphasizing about the importance of food and to treat it with the respect it deserves.

“God gave us all things to eat,” Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim says, “food is a direct gift from Him.  It is our responsibility to treat all food well, keep kitchens clean and not waste a thing.”

Earl the bald Eagle understands this, and is demonstrating his attitude in the video here.

“When you prepare and eat food, you are harnessing the energy in the vegetables, grains, or meats to interact with your energy, thereby creating more energy.  Naturally you always want to eat the best quality foods you can.  But what about when you are traveling and don’t have any healthy options?  Because food exists in consciousness, it has the energy of consciousness.  When you eat you bring this energy into your body. If you are in a situation where junk food is your only choice, remember that your positive attitude helps you get the best energy you can out of the food until a better selection is available.” (The Silent Master page 72)

So let’s be like Earl and know what to eat and how to respect the food we have!

 

Regal Eagles and what we can learn from them

Even though one of Dr. Tae Yun Kim‘s estates is very close to a major city, still all manner of birds of prey come and hunt there, some even build their nests.

To Dr. Tae Yun Kim, this is no surprise.  “They can feel the energy,” she says, “they know they are safe here. They know there is plenty of food for them.”

Eagles and other birds of prey are also perfect examples of a concept Dr. Tae Yun Kim teaches – the importance of listening to our Silent Master.

“How can you hear your Silent Master this very moment if your mind is occupied with yesterday’s resentment?  Or today’s panic?  Or tomorrow’s anticipation?  Or with fear, worry and anger?

The present moment is all there is.  Why? When it was yesterday, you experienced it as now.  When you experience tomorrow, it will be now.  AT this moment and every moment thereafter, it is now.  It is never tomorrow or yesterday.  True awareness means being right where you are, right now, without fear or worry or obsession about the future or past.  When you manage to do that, a wonderful thing happens,  You find yourself knowing what to do – now, ten minutes from now, or tomorrow.  As a result, you consistently find yourself in the right place at the right time.”

And isn’t that what Eagles do, without having to think about it?  Let’s be like Eagles and live life to the fullest, in the here and now!

Edgar, the Royal Eagle

December 26, 2012

During my travels with Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim I came across this amazing Jung Suwon-imal, Edgar, the Eagle.  He was living in an ancient fortress, in Belgium.

Because of his very unique situation, Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim asked me to interview him and see what he had to say.  Turns out, he is a most wonderful, experienced and insightful Jung Suwon-imal.

Translated into human, our conversation went something like this:

After I introduced myself as a Jung Suwon warrior-reporter, and thanked him for letting me interview him, he put his head sideways and with a sparkle in his eyes, said,

“Before you say anything – let me answer your first question – because I know what that question is going to be.  You were going to ask me how did I get to be here, tied up, living among humans like this? ”

He smiled at my astonishment.  How did he know?

“They all wonder about this,” he continued.  “Well, let me tell you.  When I was a young and strong Jungsuwon-imal, I used to fly high, and was the best hunter among the Eagles.  I had a sweetheart, and together we roamed the big skies.”

He paused and looked up at the sky, longingly.

“We raised many young ones together, and taught them how to be an Eagle.”  Here, he glanced at Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim, and said, “I am sure Great Grandmaster has already told you the story about the Mother Eagle.  You know how we teach our young to fly.  Well, we taught so many of them.”

He let out a big sigh, and preened himself a little.

“One day, when we were already what would be in human years, about 50, my beloved sweetheart passed away suddenly, and my life became lonely.  No longer did I dance in the sky.  Even hunting became a chore.  So I started to think, rather than spend my life all by myself, with nobody around to pass on my wisdom, that was not what I wanted.

So I turned to humans.  They always tried to catch one of us and we used to make fun of their attempts.  They are so clumsy!  Do they really think they can actually catch us?  Ahhhh…..well so after the arthritis set in in my wings my decision was made, and I let myself get caught.”

“How do they treat you?  And what do you do now?”

“Oh, they are wonderful to me.  They feed me, they let me take short flights now and then.  But my favorite thing is when they bring their young ones by, and I get to show them the real beauty of us Eagles.  Sometimes I even allow them to touch me.  I try to be really friendly to their tiny ones, and more aloof to the bigger ones.  See, I used to be somewhat of a King among the Eagles.  Not that we need a King.  We all know what to do.

But you humans!”  Another big sigh, and Edgar was shaking his regal head.  “You humans!”

“After all these thousands of years, you still haven’t figured out yet how to live to gether in peace and harmony.  You do need leaders, and even with leaders, you still have wars.  When will you ever learn to be like Eagles…….”

“You go and listen to your Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim“, the Edgar said in conclusion, “she is like us, except so much wiser still, so much above us, so enlightened.  She holds the secrets of the Universe! ”

I had a hard time holding back tears.  What a beautiful story!

Edgar smiled ever so slightly, nodded his head and thanked me for my time!  I thanked him for his, and reported back to Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim.

Did I dream this?  Was this reality?  Well, look at the picture.  It sure could have been a real conversation, don’t you think?
