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!

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.

A Bear’s view of life

February 20, 2017

 

Some forms of Wildlife I am very glad I don’t meet in person.  I mean, I truly love bears and how majestic and beautiful they are – but I would rather admire them from afar – especially if they have babies!  (The videos here were taken with a remote, motion detection triggered camera).  No people or bears were hurt in the process! 🙂

Dr. Tae Yun Kim owns a large, beautiful property in Oregon, that has some “native dwellers” living on it naturally, and here you can see them.  They lead a completely natural, yet protected life, and I had to think of some of what Dr. Kim wrote in “The Silent Master:”

“Freedom does not mean being free from adversity or difficulty.  Freedom is the knowledge that you have the power to conquer adversity and difficulty.  If you could ask any animals living fee in the animal kingdom, they would tell you that they aren’t free from “trouble.”  Predators are everywhere, and life is a daily challenge.  But all animals were born with instincts to protect them, and were given special talents and abilities to help them stay alive and pursue their lives in freedom.  It is the same for you!”

And isn’t that how bears live?  They are not free from trouble, but they know how to deal with it.  So let’s be a little like them, know who we are and know we have all the tools we need to live as we were meant to!

 

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!

This is Our Year!

January 29, 2017

This is the Year of the Fire Rooster!  Welcome to our New Year, crows Jupiter, Dr. Tae Yun Kim‘s rooster.

Here are the general characteristics of people born in the year of the Rooster.  Take it with a grain of salt, of course.  Dr. Tae Yun Kim cautions that while there is a lot of wisdom in these predictions, do not use them blindly and do not use them as if it was the total truth.

As for Jupiter, our mascot for this year, he used to live in trees until he took charge of a coop of hens.

Nowadays, he is taking care of several chickens.  Here are some of them.

See what I did?  Arent’ they beautiful?  Helena seems to say.  She is very proud of her eggs and makes sure they are healthy and perfect.

She also doesn’t mind showing them off.  And why not?  Dr. Tae Yun Kim says to be proud of what you accomplish!  Don’t shortchange yourself.  If you made a mistake, acknowledge it, and if you accomplished something great, also acknowledge it!

So you see, roosters and chickens can be our great teachers, especially during this, their year!

 

 

 

Beautiful Hawks

January 26, 2017

medford-hawk

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!
