Dr. Tae Yun Kim’s deer friends

January 16, 2017


Dr. Tae Yun Kim encourages us to learn from nature and from all the animals. Deer are wonderful teachers!

So what’s going on here?  Momma’s got something that looks so good!


Daddy is on to it too!  I better run and get some too!


This deer family is a perfect example of one of Dr. Tae Yun Kim‘s teachings.

Body and mind are one!  Deer don’t have to struggle with this concept – they live it every moment of their lives!  Deer don’t daydream, they know what they are supposed to do – and they do it, without questioning it.

Us humans, we struggle.  Remember though, your body is the living temple of your consciousness.  It is a holy place and deserving of your utmost love, care and respect.  Your body is meant to be well and whole and to beautifully carry out the instructions of your mind like a faithful servant.

Your body and mind then are designed to act as one at all times. It takes a lot of work and discipline.  With deer?  It comes naturally to them.

So let’s be more like deer……

My dear deer

Oh oh!  Do you see that hint of mischief in Desiree’s eye?  What could she be thinking?

One quick look over her shoulder….and off she goes….

Desiree is drawn to the trash can!  The color is so pretty!

And now she’s got her sister Deanna to come and investigate as well!  Come on Jung Suwon-imals – remember what Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim says about how your environment influences you?

“Energy from our environment is impacting us all the time.  All the objects in any particular environment are made of energy, radiate energy, and absorb energy.  After spending some time in a certain room, and finding our mood is changing, we will most likely say, Whats wrong with me?”  The problem may be due to a particular energy from the room, and not something personal.  For instance, furniture bears the energetic imprint of the person who crafted it as well as other owners or users of it.  Have you noticed that sometimes you are attracted – or repelled – by some object by “something” other than just its aesthetic value.

So its important to clear away objects associated with past circumstances you are trying to change.” (The Silent Master, page 54)

Come on you two – you know that you shouldnt hang out around trash can no matter how nice you think they look !  Think about the energy they have!

Good!  They are back home in their more usual environment, right on Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim‘s property…out of harms way.

More deer stories

So, what do the male deer Jung Suwon-imals do while the ladies take care of their babies?

Want to see?

Here is Danny, the fearless one, right on the side of the road….he doesn’t seem concerned about anything.  That is because he is the equivalent of a Jung Suwon black belt, and he knows he is fast and can outrun any predators.  He has been training hard and it pays off.  But he is not overconfident – he always keeps an eye on his surroundings and he is ready to sprint off when needed.

Danny has been training his friend Dustin, to be as strong and fast a Jung Suwon-imal as he is.  Together, they follow what Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim is teaching:

“When you have a goal that is a priority, and when you commit your total loyalty to this cause, you will undoubtedly make decisions about competing priorities in your life.  If you want to prepare for a marathon, attending every party in town could not be an equal priority to working out every day.  One or the other must be chose, the other sacrificed.”

And that is just what these deer are personifying.  Here are Danny and Dustin, in the field, getting ready to train:

See how they are lined up so nicely in their Jung Suwon outdoor DoJang?   Will they do forms, or sparring, or work on their sprinting?

And after their work out, they relax and hang out, always watching out for each other, as you can see here:

Deer, oh dear!

Remember reading about Daisy, the pregnant deer?  Well – I am happy to report that this Jung Suwon-imal has had her baby!  Or should I say, babies!  Daisy was nice enough to grant me a close look at them.  Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim says that animals can sense our energy a lot better than we can – and that when our energy is right, and they feel comfortable, they might let you come closer than you would ever imagine!  To illustrate this concept a little more, here is what Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim has to say about trust:

“If you have trouble trusting, you will tend to feel fearful and powerless when you have to deal with obstacles that seem beyond the power of your physical self to cure.  But think of this.  Could the Life Force that created the universe and created you be so unreliable as to leave you stranded in any situation?  Isn’t your life force beating your heart right now?  Your Silent Master, the Universal Life Force, is the closest thing to you.  It is your breath, your heartbeat, and your warmth.  All over the world, new life of all kinds is being born, showing us over again how life comes into being by itself.

Since the Life Force exists eternally, everywhere, with or without you, trust is something only you can do.  You can choose to acknowledge the Life Force as your own, and act as one with it.  Or you choose to ignore it, in which case you can’t use it, and you will feel powerless.”

Of course, our two Jung Suwon-imal fawns know the true meaning of trust, and are exercising it.

So, here you can see a few pictures of Desiree and Deanna.

Even though they are very new in this world – perhaps a couple of weeks old by now – they are already true Jung Suwon warriors.  Always aware, always alert, and ready for whatever comes their way!

Without further ado, heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeere they are!

Introducing Daisy

April 6, 2012

Meet Daisy, the beautiful Jung Suwon-imal, right here in Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim’s backyard, as she is relaxing with a group of friends!  You can easily spot Daisy, she is the pregnant one!  Here, in Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim’s environment, she feels safe, and knows she is protected.

But here, you can barely see her.  This is outside, along the road to Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim’s estate.

Daisy knows that is isn’t Jung Suwon, nor Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim’s garden, but this is the wild, where she could easily fall prey to some hungry coyote or mountain lion. And because she is pregnant and not as agile as she normally is, Daisy is perfectly blending into her environment.

Daisy is the prime example for the following excerpt from Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim’s book “Seven Steps to Inner Power:”

How do you observe?  By being here, now, so that you are undistracted by thoughts of the future or the past.  Now is all there is; therefore, any blow coming to you, can be known, or felt, or sensed now.  this foreknowledge or ability to sense things is the best offense and defense you can have and is the reward for being disciplined to live only in the now, the only reality.

So you see, Jung Suwon-imals very much personify Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim’s teachings, and are wonderful examples!
