New Jung Suwon-imal – Benny the bird

May 6, 2012

I have an interesting dilemma with this adorable Jung Suwon-imal.  He is cute!  He sings beautifully.  And he defends his perch (which is my car antenna.)

He has a great ki-up and he does a great job sparring, in the air!  The air is his Jung Suwon Do-jang!

Introduuuuuuuuuuucing Benny the lazuli bunting!  (drumroll please!)

See him in ready stance here?

Every time I see little Benny – and I do see him a lot, because he thinks I got my car just for him – I am reminded of Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim’s words in her book, “The First Element:”

Wake up to the little miracles around you right now and appreciate the power of the universal life force!  These miracle 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.”

So here is Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim’s tiny warrior, true to himself, being who he was meant to be.

What’s the dilemma?  Well, see here is the same picture as above, except zoomed out:

And another one, even further away….

So far, so good, right?

Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim teaches us that it’s always good to look at situations from different angles and all directions, so here is another close up of my car (yes, that beautiful color matching car is mine) and you will instantly know my dilemma:


How do you deal with a beautiful, cheerful, awesome Jung Suwon warrior of the animal kingdom, who is only doing what he was born to do?

Well, my solution – you guessed it!

Wash my car more often!  Thank you Benny for motivating me to keep my car clean!
