“Miss Lee, your laughter sounds so fake…”
My student said these words to me one day after he’d overheard my phone conversation. I said, “well, I try to answer the phone with a happy attitude.” Still, I was shocked at what he said to me. I started to feel a bit ashamed, standing in front of the class after that. I also thought that I wasn’t a very good role model and I tried to pretend that my behavior wasn’t that big of a deal.
After a 10-year teaching career, I really thou
Guillaume Lee / Interpreter Guillaume Lee was born to a Korean father and a French mother. His life experience as a child was filled with being teased for being of mixed race and he became very lonely at school as a result. It was a very difficult experience for him to live with this discrimination from his peers and it stayed with him in his young adult life. The following is Guillaume’s story of finding peace and harmony in the world through this method of meditation. I rea
People have many physical and psychological illnesses because they have a lot of minds in their consciousness, which is that person's mind. When things do not go as desired people become ill. If people throw away all the negative minds they have in their own mind they will have only the true mind and that disease will disappear. When they have only the true mind they will become both mentally and physically healthy. #mentalhealth #meditation #healthymind #healthybody #cleanse
Sangki Lee / Vocational Soldier I grew up in Chuncheon and was told that I was a good family member. My father was a professional soldier, and after he was discharged from the military, he had financial difficulty because he failed at his business. He was not lucky, but he was a good man in many ways. I studied hard and entered the academy with difficulty, and since then, I have lived like a high-speed locomotive. On the outside, I always tried to live the best cadet and mili
What are the greatest pleasures of human existence? Knowing that our existence is allowed by the Universe and that our lives are promising.
Hope you enjoy this story. 🌛🎶 One day when the full moon was bright, the Universe struck up a conversation with the Moon. “Are you happy?” The Moon said, “I could be if people stopped making a wish upon me. It’s torture hearing their insatiable desires. I’m wondering why they cannot be happy, just as they are.” The Universe kept silent,
Mikyung Lee / Public Official I majored in nursing in Daegu and worked at a university hospital and a mental hospital, and since 1999, I joined a public health center and have been working as a nursing public servant.
It was in 2012 when I started meditation. The reason I started meditation was because of the conflicts I was having with my husband and daughter. Because I had a bad temper, I often quarreled with my husband. Once while we were having a fight, I thought that I h
How to Be Grateful People do not know how to be grateful for being born into and living in this world because they live trapped in their own minds. Since people live according to their greed, they live continuously complaining. But people’s blessings are founded in a grateful and generous mind. #gratitude #generousemind #howtobegrateful #meditation #method #thanksful #happiness #peaceful
There is an Increase in the Number of People Who Want to Relieve Their Overloaded Body and Mind in a Complicated World Joo-Gon-Cho-Sun, an attorney in South Korea “Before, when defendants would insist on nonsensical claims during trials I used to get angry, even though outwardly I would seem calm. But after Ma-eum Su-ryun, I no longer felt such anger during trials. I was able to see from the perspective of defendants and hear from their points of view. But it didn’t necessari
Holding onto the mind world, people cannot improve their lives because they can only speak and act according to what they have in their mind. So they cannot improve their lives. When people get rid of their minds, they will clearly know all the principles of the world. Consequently, they can change their life completely and live happy and productive life because they have wisdom and they act accordingly. #improvelife #meditation #lifetips #meditationlife #cleanmind #wisdom #t

Sungjun Moon and Younghee Jeon Younghee said she always sacrificed for her husband in anticipation of a happy future. Sungjun said he always tried to do the same because he wanted to do whatever would please his wife. However, communication between them only became more difficult, and marriage life only became more painful. Even though they would say, “I love you,” they were unable to be together even for a moment. Then, they learned that they were living in their own world
Pride The thing that man will hold on to until the very end is his pride. One’s pride is the life he has lived until now and so he is unwilling to let go of it. He is unwilling to let go of it even after he is dead. Tears come to my eyes. Man may look back on his life over and over again, however no one else but he knows his experiences. With the flow of time, man rears his mind – a mind which he gains throughout his life and lives fixed upon. The Universe blames that mind; i
Written by Shelley E. Photo: Me at the beach I recently had an experience that really highlights the power and healing of this method. I asked my spouse where something was and got a snotty answer. I closed the door and walked away, but overheard my wife say something very nasty under her breath, something never said before, something that would be a deal breaker for me in the past. I got very mad, maybe the maddest I have ever been in this relationship. She came upstairs as
The Body Becomes Healthy Cleansing the accumulated mind is like cleansing the body. If we cleanse all the stains from our mind, then the natural flow of energy in our body is restored. Many people who do this meditation feel the body becoming healthier in a very short time. The stained mind is the source of stress which can cause many diseases and illnesses. Relationships Become Harmonious and Free of Conflicts Conflicts in relationships are due to the differences in each ind

Sunae Koo / Housewife I began meditating at the request of my husband and daughter. Before I knew about this meditation, I was the kind of person who was terrified to deal with new situations. Now that I’m meditating every day, I’m secure enough to go visit family in the hospital – and I’m so grateful. When I saw my elderly mother-in-law laying in her hospital bed, I saw a woman who had a long, lonely struggle in her 80 years of life. I saw the restless agonies due to her ten
Kwon-ho Go / KT Networks Kwon-ho Go developed a panic disorder due to what he thought was excessive stress at his job. His doctor told him that everything is a matter of the mind and so he moved to the countryside to try to calm down a bit. But despite having clean air and reading books about mind training, his panic disorder didn’t get any better. When he started to feel like he was dying due to his panic attacks, one of his colleagues recommended that he try meditation. Thi
While I looked at the ‘trending’ section of YouTube during coronavirus quarantine, there was a video uploaded by the famous Tonight Show host, Jimmy Fallon that caught my eye. In some ways, this may be the most difficult time for everyone. Normal life is impossible. Under self-quarantine at one’s own home, no one can go out, no one can go to work and it is hard to meet people. I want to applaud Jimmy Fallon because, during that time on St. Patrick’s Day, he started broadcasti
A young girl wanted so badly to succeed. She went to find the king and asked how she could succeed. The king gave her a glass full of water and told her. “Take this glass of water and come back after walking through the entire town once. Then I will tell you. But if you spill the water, then you will receive a punishment.” The young girl walked through the entire town, sweating, and came back. The king asked her. “What was it like walking through the town?” “I am not sure. I
