Learning to Forgive!

The Art of Jung SuWon

“Yes, people do make mistakes and hurt others. We all make mistakes. But you never need to condemn yourself or anyone else over and over again for those mistakes. Learn whatever you need to, let it go, and then move on to create a new reality. The main obstacle to forgiving yourself is guilt. If you think back to your childhood, didn’t authority figures usually deal with mistakes or misbehavior by condemning the behavior and the person engaged in it? We weren’t taught that…

Good old Korean country style food

Healthy Foods Inspired by Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim

Even though I have had the great luck and opportunity to train under Dr. Tae Yun Kim for over 30 years now, and even though I have learned a lot about Korean food, there are some things that still intimidate me.  For example, making really good Deng Jang Chigae (fermented soybean paste soup)  and the many different kinds of ban chan.  Ban chan are wonderful little side dishes that liven up your rice and make a simple meal into an explosion of flavors.

Dr. Tae Yun Kim is a most excellent and very creative cook, Korean cuisine and way beyond.  She can make the most exquisite meals imaginable, yet her personal favorite are very simple, country-style dishes.

So I finally decided to conquer my fear of making ban chan and started with something relatively simple.  This particular one happens to be one of Dr. Tae Yun Kim‘s favorite ones…

The Right Environment to Find Your True Self!

The Art of Jung SuWon


In class, the students read the Seven Steps to Inner Power Book on Page 69.  Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim shares, “Here is an example. I met Scott when he was in his twenties when he came to me for martial arts training. For many years Scott had believed that one of his “weaknesses” was that he was a terrible singer. As part of the training I give my students, I encourage them to examine where their limiting ideas have come from and whether those ideas are really based on true facts. Oftentimes, these beliefs are based solely on the opinions others have fed them. So Scott asked himself where the idea that he was a bad singer originally came from. It turned out that when he was in the fifth grade, Scott and his classmates were singing the song “Mr. Moon” with gusto when suddenly his teacher looked up…

I will learn to sacrifice in order to achieve my goals…

The Art of Jung SuWon

Today is a very special day to take a moment to honor those who have served our country and sacrificed their lives for our freedom!


I have been thinking a lot about what sacrifice means. Without realizing, we are presented with different options and choices every single moment! How do we make the right choices when we are presented with competing priorities?

In Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim’s book, she shares regarding the topic of sacrifice that gave me a new perspective!

In Seven Steps to Inner Power Book on Page 210, Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim shares, “When your Silent Master gives you a desire, it will never ask you to sacrifice something you need. When you find yourself at a crossroads and you must make a choice of what to hold on to and what to let go of, ask yourself if the so-called sacrifice is…

Live in the Moment

Self Discovery as a Jung Su Won Warrior

      Live in the Moment

Dr. Tae Yun Kim also discusses this in one of her books, The Silent Master: Awakening the Power Within, “There is an important distinction between being and becoming.  Remember, I said only the present moment, and not the future exists in reality; therefore, the present moment is the only creative place for you to act.  If you take a stance of becoming, you are placing your growth in the future, which is a time that never comes. If you take the chance of being

Your Thought Create Reality

Tae Yun Kim - Seven Steps to Inner Power

Your Silent Master Consciousness knows Itself to be immaterial in substance, but It also takes form (manifests) as your physical body and the material world around your.  Thus, you may describe yourself as being both immaterial ( spiritual ) and material ( physical ) at the same time.
