More about the great world of Hawks

Hawk at SG ranch

So I maybe a bit pre-occupied with raptors.  But it isn’t like I go out and try to stalk them.  I just “see” them and they seem to “see” me.  Energy, Dr. Tae Yun Kim says, whatever happens in your life, it’s because of your energy, what you attract through your own energy at that time.

In Dr. Kim’s book, “The Silent Master” she talks about this on page 154:

“Those times that I have enjoyed the mountain and blue sky of the wilderness I have always had the same thought: There is no artist who can create this kind of beauty.  No photograph, no painting can match this  The more I stand there and just appreciate, the more I feel as though I am making my own music.  I am telling you to wake up and see how much there is to appreciate.  So many people are victims of negative thinking and dark emotions because they don’t realize how much there is to see and feel that can create natural, effortless, positive feelings.”

So let’s appreciate these beautiful beings, and enjoy their beauty whenever you can see them.  I like to think that somehow they are spiritual guides, just like the American Indians used to say, and like Dr. Kim is still saying.

Beautiful Hawks

I have said it many times – I absolutely love and adore birds of prey.  They are so majestic and I am very drawn to them.  If I don’t see one for a day I really miss them. This morning, this beauty seemed to be waiting for me, at the tree he/she always is sitting on.

Halona, the hawk, reminded me of what Dr. Tae Yun Kim has said many times – it’s about how we view our lives.

“The higher your view, the wider and more thorough your view.  Think of viewing something from the ground,  from the top of the tree, from a helicopter ( or mid-flight of a hawk) and finally from a satellite.  Which gives you the widest view?  The most information about the environment?  The Satellite of course!”

Just think about it – if Halona had to try find food while on the ground – she wouldn’t ever see any and would starve.  The higher she goes up in the sky, the more she’ll see and the better the chance to spot her dinner.

And just like that, Dr Tae Yun Kim says, we need to let our spiritual being go way up like the satellite, and view our lives from that view!  Only then can we truly make decisions and gain insight into our lives!

How Henry the hawk helped me understand “awareness”

August 2, 2013

Perhaps I am obsessive and compulsive.  Every time I go outside and every time I drive along our country road, my video camera is on the passenger seat, turned on, but not recording, just in case I see something I want to blog about later.

But, I look at it more as being ready, and living in the here and now.

“Be ready anytime, any place, for anything,” Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim teaches.

See how good it was I had the camera with me today?  I hadn’t gone more than maybe 20 steps out of the house when I heard the tell-tale swoosh pretty much right overhead.

All I had to do was find Henry in my viewfinder, and videotape him. This isn’t as easy as it sounds, but with practice it works!

This experience reminded me of Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim‘s wise words:

“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. Focused here, now, you become undistracted.  You find yourself becoming mentally quiet.  And when that happens, you “hear your Silent Master, your inner voice, quite clearly.  you perceive all around you quite clearly.  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.” (Seven Steps To Inner Power page 54).

The power and beauty of Hawks

As I was watching, and filming, some beautiful birds of prey today, Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim’s words immediately came to mind:

“This Universe is wonderful the way it is.  We cannot invent any more riches in it. Everything that is, already exists.  What we can do to enrich our lives is become more aware of what’s already here!  This means expanding our awareness of our entire energy field so that we embrace wider perceptions….The object of our life is to exist meaningfully, joyfully, energetically, purposefully, creatively!”

Take a look at these magnificent hawks.  Don’t they just seem to personify this statement?

Hawks, by the way, are the ultimate Jung Suwon imals.  They are beautiful, powerful, graceful, and they use their power only when needed.  they never go and chase and kill for the fun of it and there are no hawk bullies.

Hawks can fly sky-high, and they can also swoop low above ground.  And did you know they always fly so they don’t cast a shadow ahead of them?

and here “Henry” is performing some aerial acrobatics

after all this, he returns to his post, for some well deserved rest:

I have to add, that “Henry” as I like to call him (or maybe it is a Henrietta after all) and I have been buddies of sorts.  He knows I mean him no harm, and once in a while he seems to appear out of nowhere to delight me with his aerial acrobatics.  Although that mostly happens when I don’t have my camera in my hands!

Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim says that animals can sense energy much more than humans and that is why wild animals sometimes come close to those they feel comfortable with.  This explains why Great Grandmaster has a special relationship with animals and was able to even touch and carry a full size, live owl!

That being said, please do not try to touch or hold any wild animals yourself. Please leave them alone and admire them for who they are and what they are!

HE CAN DO, SHE CAN DO, WHY NOT ME!
