Last weekend I had to honor and pleasure to be invited by Dr. Tae Yun Kim, to join her in her garden. I always love that because I feel extremely blessed to get personal attention from Dr. Tae Yun Kim, and get to learn her wisdom, undiluted, and directly.
With a twinkle in her eye, Dr. Tae Yun Kim asked me to look again. When she saw my puzzled expression – with a gentle smile she started to point out the tiny little plums that were all over the tree:
Can you count how many little plums there are in these pictures? But Dr. Tae Yun Kim saw even more than that!
She even noticed the tiny spent flowers, all brown and so small, yet still, future plums! And all of a sudden, the tree had lots and lots of plums on it!
“Ideally, your awareness should be like a pool of still water. Light travels easily into still water, and you can see right into it. it becomes very clear. But when the wind blows and the water is agitated, or when the water is polluted, you can’t see what’s in it clearly. So, how can you make your mind like a pool of still, clean water, undistrubed by turbulent surface thoughts, free from polluting feelings and emotions, so that the light of your silent Master travels easily into your awareness?”
