More about the great world of Hawks

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

January 26, 2017


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!


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?

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!


Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim invites a special guest for morning training

January 20, 2012

I mentioned on another blog about Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim’s special outdoor training.  Yesterday was a very special day.

I mean, I have known that Grandmaster Kim is the World’s foremost Ki Energy Master, but yesterday was really really special.  You see, a Hawk came to visit us.  Now, where Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim lives, there are a lot of hawks.  But none ever came before the sun was even close to coming up, and none ever came this close.  It was a very beautiful moment.

Grandmaster Kim explains that we attract what we think. If we have beautiful thoughts in our minds, then we will attract beautiful and positive things.  If, on the other hand, we think only nasty and bad thoughts – that is what we are going to get.

So, let’s focus on the good, on the beautiful, on the positive and have a great day!

Meet Jung SuWon-imal Henry the Hawk up close and personal

November 25, 2008

Jung SuWon warriors come in all sizes and shapes, and I consider many animals out there to be just such warriors.  They are living and being true to themselves!  They do what they are meant to do.

It finally occurred to me why Sam has turned invisible.  Squirrels are Henry’s favorite food!  No wonder Sam’s been hiding out in the old oak tree and only darting in and out for some acorns.  And while Ferdinand is fun for me to watch, he certainly wouldn’t make a good companion for Henry. Ferdinand the turkey is the class clown of nature.  Henry is the prince. 

Henry is just very different.  For one, he is a predator, a hunter.  I can see him circle way up in the sky on clear days, and I hear his characteristic hawk screech.  I watch him nose dive straight down and strike his prey and I have seen him sitting on the ground, enjoying his feast. 

But most of all I see him sitting on the fence rail in the very same spot every day.  He loves sitting there and watching what’s going on.  Sometimes he looks away from the house, out into the valley, and only turns his head once in a while.  Today, he was facing inside the fence, and I was lucky enough to get a few moments of him on video.  Whether I see him up in the air, or resting on the fence, he always reminds me of Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim’s words:

“Righ 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.  Brighter and more precious than diamonds, warm as the spring sun, and beautiful like spirals of galaxies sprinkled over this vast universe, your Silent Master awaits your return, so that together you will come forth as one radiant being in charge of your destiny.  What is stopping you?  What is holding you back?  You are free to be free!  Spread your wings!  Fly and be free!”  (The Silent Master, page 162)

New Jung SuWon-imal: introducing Henry the Hawk

November 21, 2008

Since Ferdinand and his family have retreated into the woods, and since Sam is hiding out in his tree, it’s been quiet.  But, a new Jung SuWon-imal has arrived, in all his beauty.  Henry the Hawk is here!  His is a very majestic bird, and doesn’t mingle with others.  Here is what Henry looks like:

hawk-2hawkWhenever I see Henry, he reminds me of something Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim, of Jung SuWon Martial Art Academy wrote:

“Freedom does not mean freedom from adversity or difficulty.  Freedom is the knowledge that you have the power to conquer adversity and difficulty.  If you could ask any animal living free 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,a nd were given special talents and abilities to help them say alive and pursue their lives in freedom.  It is the same for you. “ (The Silent Master, page 141)
