Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim faced many obstacles in her lifetime

I call this the Way of the Jung SuWon Warrior. You will have to change, and sometimes newness can be frightening. When your eyes have adjusted to darkness for a long time, and someone suddenly draws the curtain back, does not the bright light of normal daylight cause you discomfort, even pain? Just so, in some ways your limited self may be living in comfortable darkness.

But the rewards of becoming new are great. If you are willing to experience and conquer initial discomfort, you will soon grow accustomed to the brightness and see a whole new world illumined by this light! And you will remember every step of the way that the obstacles and limitations you attack are destined to fall because they were never a part of your Real Self.

As you change, you will be opening up to new op­portunities, new challenges! Does not the small fish that hatches upstream fare great risks in swimming to the much larger ocean where it will grow big and strong? Yet, isn’t this risk preferable to remaining upstream and living a smaller self?

You will see that the Way of the Warrior is to realize who you are in Truth and to demonstrate it. You will see that the work of the Warrior is joyous, that your persever­ance is rewarded with increasing faith in your Silent Master and in love for yourself and others, and that your victory is assured!  Because you already are one with your Silent Master.
