Have Determination and a Quality Purpose

But wherever there is freedom, there must be responsibility.  this brings us to the 4th principle of mental conduct.

Have a Purpose and a Quality Purpose:
Now we know the law:  what we think, we create.  The 4th principle tells us how to use our power responsibly in invoking this law.
First, lets talk about the most basic part of this principle:  have a purpose and determination.

Be Specific: 
When you decide to make a change, achieve a goal, or create something new in your life, you must focus your objective clearly in your mind.  the thought form, “I desire a change in my social life” will take form somehow, but it may be so vague and indistinct that you won’t notice a change.  ” I desire to meet more people” is better; “I desire to meet more people who share my interest in flying airplanes (or whatever)” is better still.  Focus as specifically as possible on what you want to accomplish.  When you want to buy a car, you identify the make, model, color, and accessories that you desire.  When you take a vacation, you plan exactly where you want to go, where you will stay, how you will get there, and proceed to make all the proper arrangements.  You are being specific, aren’t you?  The great goals in your life deserve as much care, don’t they?  Be specific!


Then, focus your will and unflinching determination behind your purpose.

Pondering and thinking

I have been thinking about the last section – “You are an Unlimited Co-creator.”  This is such an amazing and powerful statement.  Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim is often like that.  She will say something that is very profound, but at the time, I just didn’t understand the depth of her statement.  I didn’t understand the importance of it.  So last year, I took steps to change my life.  I wasn’t really happy with my surroundings.  I had a few employees that were good performers, but just miserable to have around.  Their personalities didn’t fit into our culture.  They were either unprofessional, or bullied people around, or just weren’t  capable.  I didn’t realize the pain and displeasure they put into my life.


Finally I decided to change.  “You are an Unlimited Co-Creator”, Dr. Tae Yun Kim’s words were ringing in my brain.  I have the power to change my environment.

So I did the uncomfortable thing.  I let them go.  It was about 8-10 people.  It was a big move, and very difficult.  Everyone left had to rise to the occasion, and fill in the gaps.  It wasn’t easy, and we had knowledge and capability gaps.  But at the end of the day, it was much better.  It was heaven.  Everyone was working together better.  There were no more bullies around.  The people that made my day to day job were gone.  Now a year later, and looking back, I am so glad I took Grandmaster’s advice.  -> If you are not happy with your current situation, change it.  I did!

Dr. Tae Yun Kim, thank you so much for your advice and guidance.  It just took me sometime to figure out how to apply it to my life.  Yahoo!!

You Are a Unlimited Co-Creator

Yes, you already have been creating your life. This process is the gift from the Life Force of the Universe to you.

But your creative process has been largely unconscious and therefore undirected, somewhat haphazard, influenced by other persons’ thinking and limited by your restricted awareness of what you think is possible.

The purpose of the third rule of mental conduct is to emphasize how you limit yourself by yourself: You limit your thinking with your thinking. This rule tells you to wake up, open up, expand your expectations, and realize you can achieve and produce whatever you can think.

Does that sound too audacious? Whatever you can think? Yes. What is it that you really want?  This is not an invitation to be frivolous in your thinking.  If anything, this is a warning to be careful what you think. Why? All thought truly does take form one way or another. There is some truth in the expression, “Be careful what you wish for; you might get it.”  (by Dr. Tae Yun Kim )

Let’s exaggerate to make a point: How about blue snowflakes falling on pink- and yellow-striped rocks in the middle of a desert?  Do you realize that such a scene is possible to create with today’s electronic video technology?  Even that thought has a way to take form. All our modern-day technology has developed progressively to reveal greater capabilities for unlimited expression and communication of thought.

Negative energy creates negative manifestations. Hateful thoughts, for instance, create broken relation­ships, wars and weapons, physical diseases of all kinds. Positive energy creates positive manifestations. Loving thoughts create harmonious organizations, cooperative governments, and healings of all kinds of discord.  It’s very simple, really.

What may be difficult is to identify and remove the ways of thinking that produce destructive manifesta­tions.  But isn’t this why we’re here?  To learn to take charge of what we manifest by taking charge of our thinking?  Can you see now that you can be your own worst enemy?  Why?  Because you’re the one who monitors what you think.  Who thinks your thoughts better than you?  Others can suggest thoughts to you, but you’re the one who accepts or rejects what you entertain in your mind.

Instead, be your own best friend.  When you find yourself uncomfortable with your own negative creations and wanting to change your thinking, you are feeling the presence of your Silent Master.  Why? Because your discomfort signals that you know something better is possible.  Your Silent Master always urges you to grow into greater freedom from limitation of any sort. You may have been willing to accept being poor, being sick, having a job you dislike. Now you know you don’t have to accept anything except your freedom, your gift from the Universe to create whatever you desire.
by Dr. Tae Yun Kim (page 30)

Look again at this Silent Master Image by Dr. Tae Yun Kim:

Silent Master Image II

                              ______       

Your Silent Master Consciousness

was born out of the infinite

Life Force creating and

animating the Universe…

Because you are this

Consciousness, whatever qualities

the Life Force possesses,

you possess also.

                      ____               

You and the Universe are inseparable; you are a Unit; you are One. The Life Force of the Universe is creative, so you are creative, also.  It is the nature of our Universe that thought takes form. Therefore, because you are an integral part of our Universe, your thinking takes form. You have been creating your life since the day you were born.

Remember this image also?

Silent Master Image IV

                             _____        

Your Silent Master knows

Itself as the Source of mental,

emotional, and material

Energy – your energy,

 which you are free to utilize

and control in creating what

you desire. Therefore, you

are a Co-Creator, cooperating

with the Life Force of the

Universe to shape yourself

and the world around you.

                      ______               

The Life Force of the Universe flows through you and beats you heart. When you think, you use Its energy to create other forms of energy, and this energy literally materializes – takes form as matter. So, everything material, both objects and events, is a “crystallization” of thought energy. The artist and musician illustrate this process quite naturally. In their work, don’t they take an intangible thought or feeling and turn it into something tangible a painting or a symphony?

Fear of Mistakes is Laziness

fear_of_mistakes

Part of our fear of mistakes is pure laziness. What’s the worst thing that will happen if you make a mistake? You will have to abandon that course of action and take another, which means, in short, a lot of work.  What does that mean?  That means you will have to think of another course of action.  You may have to be creative. You may have to expend energy in thinking, evaluating, planning.  You may have to resist emotions such as despair, futility, rejection, and fear.  Dr. Tae Yun Kim teaches you how to resist emotions, and be disciplined with your emotions.  More than that, Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim teaches you how to find happiness in your life.

If you are mentally lazy, making mistakes will be one of the best excuses you have for giving up, for deciding that maybe your goal isn’t so important after all. What a senseless waste that would be.  Why expect so little out of life?

Mistakes are not harmful in and of themselves. What is harmful is our attitude toward mistakes.  But if you are willing to make mistakes, look at them, regard them as feedback, and keep right on making them until you achieve your goal, then you have the right attitude. You don’t purposely make mistakes, of course. But because you are challenging yourself, be aware that mis­takes are a natural part of the process.  Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim emphasizes, have freedom to make a great mistake.  This gives you the freedom to try something new.  If you don’t try something new, you will never learn and grow.

The right attitude toward mistakes will give you the freedom to pursue your goals with confidence, with minimum distraction, and with your success securely focused in your mind. When you find yourself joyfully moving from one situation to another, using mistakes for learning growing, and improving, your Silent Master is beginning to operate in your life. (page 27)

Until next time…  remember to have a good attitude. :)

Making Mistakes Is Making Progress

Willingness to learn from mistakes is the backbone to everything that can be considered progress. How many mistakes do you think Alexander Graham Bell made in inventing the first telephone that connected one room in his house to another?  Now telephone technol­ogy is developing that will allow you to see the person you’re speaking with on the other side of the globe.  How many mistakes did the engineers make while developing this technology?  Who cares?  The object is to succeed, not to count your mistakes.  Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim is always working with students and encouraging them to go beyond their minds.  They get scared and limit themselves.  But Dr. Tae Yun Kim is an expert, at giving them courage and motivation, and then shows them the technique so they succeed.  They then find in themselves new strength and confidence.

Mistakes are also essential to your progress. The minute you decide to achieve a goal that’s important to you, you will make mistakes. How did we humans get the idea that to be perfect we couldn’t make mistakes? Never making a mistake does not make us perfect. Never repeating a mistake (after we learn from it) is as perfect as we need to be.

Imagine the freedom you’ll feel when you don’t have to worry about defending or hiding your mistakes. Experience the increased energy that comes from this freedom! Welcome your mistakes into your consciousness as your friends and teachers. (pg 27)

Be adventurous and try something new in your life.  Dr. Kim always shouts out “He Can Do, She Can Do, Why Not Me”.  Have courage and reach out for your happiness and success.

Remember to smile and be happy.  :)

Learn From Your Mistakes

Mistakes Are Your Feedback System

In the preceding section we discussed how we are constantly evaluating our “on-stage performance” in life and how we tend to hide our weaknesses to put ourselves in a better light, thereby hoping to give ourselves a higher performance rating.  For the same reason, we tend to hide our mistakes.  Just as we think a good performer can’t be weak, we think a good performer cannot make mistakes.  So when we do make a mistake, the quicker we get it out of sight and “move on,” the better.  Think about it for a moment.  One of the fastest things we do is cover up a mistake, or excuse it, or justify it.  We’ll do just about anything to get away from it except look long and hard at it.  Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim pointed out to me that often this is just my pride.

Here’s the fact about mistakes. They are part of a natural feedback system in learning a task or accom­plishing a goal. That’s all.

Imagine a gymnastics student learning to do a back flip for the first time. As he strives to imitate the move­ment as best he can, the teacher tells him two things: what he did correctly, and what he did incorrectly. This is called positive and negative feedback. The positive feedback describes his right action, and the negative feedback describes his mistakes. Can you see how knowledge of mistakes is just as important in the learn­ing process as knowledge of right actions? When you know what is not correct, you can then consciously strive to avoid the mistake and duplicate the right action. Precise knowledge of correct and incorrect forms the basis of our conscious choices and actions, and that speeds up the learning process.

Now imagine a person striving to get promoted in her workplace. Perhaps she calls attention to herself by bragging and showing off and calls attention to deficien­cies in co-workers to make herself look better.  After a while, suddenly she is fired instead of promoted.  Did she make a mistake?  Absolutely.  She must now regard that mistake as feedback on what not to do to get a pro­motion.  She still has yet to learn what to do, of course, and may make still more mistakes in the process of finding the right action.  But the key is to keep going.  She must not let her mistakes be excuses for giving up or for paralyzing future action with self-condemnation.  If her goal is worth achieving, she must have the willing­ness to persist through every form of failure, regarding it always as a learning experience, as feedback, until she hits upon the right action for success.  Dr. Tae Yun Kim has faced a lifetime of challenges and overcome.  You can do it too.

Have a great day.  :) (pg 26),

Are Weaknesses in Others Really in you? ( Part 2 )

It’s a fact, then, that sometimes our weaknesses are hard to see and remove merely because we are afraid of them.  So, let us remove that weakness now.  Think of it this way.  When you have an ugly wart or growth on your skin, you have no desire to keep it.  Even if you hide it from sight, you keep thinking of how you’ll get rid of it.  Regard your weaknesses the same way, says Dr. Tae Yun Kim.  They’re not necessarily visible the way warts are, but they are just as “unsightly” and detract from your mental ease and beauty to the same extent.

Anger, fear, resentment, laziness, despair, pessi­mism, selfishness, revenge, sarcasm, jealousy, worry – these are just a few weak, powerless states of mind to be conquered. When you find yourself reacting with com­passion to these characteristics in another or in yourself, you’ll know you’re well on your way to conquering them. Why? Because compassion is one of the qualities of your Silent Master and signals Its presence beginning to operate in your mind.  Compassion also means that you have lost your fear of the weakness, and that is the first step in removing it.

The second step to removing your weakness is to obliterate it by replacing it with a quality that negates it, one that is the opposite of the bad quality.  More will be said about this process later.  What’s important now is to understand that weaknesses are not part of your original self.  By replacing your weaknesses with strengths, replacing anger with love, laziness with action, selfishness with selflessness, and so on – you’ve done everything you need to do to conquer these enemies of your well-being.

Are the Weaknesses in Others Really in You?

During this process of self-analysis, you may notice that others have weaknesses you don’t have.  A word of warning: Perhaps another person does indeed have some weaknesses you don’t have. But, if you find yourself re­acting, especially reacting emotionally to this person’s weakness, chances are 99.9% certain that you also have that weakness. For instance, you may find yourself say­ing, “I just hate the way Julie acts with so little confi­dence in herself. It seems like she’s afraid of her own shadow! I don’t even like to be around her, because her fear bothers me so much.” There is a good possibility the reason you don’t want to be around Julie is because she’s acting out your fear, your lack of confidence. You may be so afraid of this weakness in yourself that you refuse to see it in yourself.  Therefore, when you see it in Julie (which you think is safer to do), you react only to Julie when you should be reacting to yourself as well.

Identify your Fears and Weaknesses and Conquer them.

Releasing Weaknesses Releases Your Energy

The process of taking a hard look at yourself re­quires great energy. Maybe you don’t think you’re up to it, or maybe you give yourself the excuse that you’ll do it later. But how much energy do you think you’ve been expending trying to keep your weaknesses hidden? I promise you’ll be amazed at the surge of energy and re­laxation you will feel when you begin to release your weaknesses.

Here’s an illustration.  I once watched a bird that had found a large piece of bread, much larger than what it alone could possibly eat.  All the neighboring birds saw the bread and flew down from the trees to partake.  The bird expended considerable energy in what we could call selfish maneuvers to keep the bread away from the others.  It was so busy taking evasive action that it didn’t have time to eat the bread.  To me it was obvious that if the bird would have let go of its “selfishness,” there would have been enough bread for all and it would have saved an enormous amount of energy just by sharing.

Just so, when you get a larger view of yourself, you will then see the reward of sacrificing your most cher­ished weaknesses in your increased energy and freedom. Your strengths, alone, are big enough to share with every­one and big enough to confront any situation.
