All about Sharks

Smiley shark

At first, I didn’t understand it myself.  How can a shark be a Jung Suwon imal?  Sharks have a bad reputation for sure.  They are only presented as cold blooded predators that kill anything and everything in their way.

But Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim has showed me quite a different species!

Shark and other fish

Sharks do not kill for fun, nor are they inherently blood thirsty.  They kill when they are hungry.  At other times, they peacefully share the ocean or even large aquariums with other fish.  They don’t like the way humans taste, so if they do bite, they typically do not destroy – we are not their favorite food!

Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim points out that sharks are some of the oldest living species on the planet.  They have been around for over 400 Million years, so that means that they are “perfectly designed survivors.”

As far as their behaviors go – they are really just true to their nature – they do what they are born to be, and do it well, and efficiently.  Like a blade of grass, pushing through a rock, they are only being true to their own lives.  They are being true Jung Suwon Warriors.  (Seven Steps to Inner Power, page xi)

So, let us admire the beautiful qualities of the sharks, and let us stay out of their ways…..
