Less is more. Nothingness is bliss.
Being busy and constantly looking for things to do without taking a breather is a disease. It is a very stressful disease. I have been afflicted with this problem since I was a young schoolboy when my mother could not stand the sight of me doing nothing. The non-stop activity has always given me an adrenaline rush and gives me a feeling of
Self-importance. But, when the activities stop, there is an emptiness that I want to fill, then, I will compulsively begin the cycle all over again by doing something new.
I was very lucky that this meditation presented itself when I was looking for a new activity to do because it was in this meditation that I understood the value and essence of the emptiness that I wanted to fill.
I learned that it is not adding more that will lead to satisfaction but, it is actually subtracting the imprints in my mind’s world that will be the start of my true fulfillment.
Less is more. Nothingness is bliss.
Through meditation, I have realized many benefits. These include mental clarity; improved physical health; greater capacity for understanding the shortcomings of other people and; even exercising patience (with a smile) on the road during blood-curdling traffic jams. I am truly grateful to this simple method that has life-changing benefits.
Today, rather than being busy with non-essential activities to satisfy my mind, I am diligently practicing meditation so I can truly live in the real world.
My meditation journey
I tried meditation because I wanted to heal the pain over the death of my husband. I never thought that meditation will give me more than healing but a new life.
When that crisis happened to me, I find life, harder to accept. The pain is like my daily reality that I became lonelier and hopeless. I feel sickly, irritable, always angry and cannot contribute much at work. I cannot find my motivation so I always cry. I cannot pull myself back to my feet.
Even if I pray hard, read all the self-help books & even the Bible, attend seminars, I still don’t know what to do with my life. I always asked myself, “why can’t I be happy?”
No one knows what is happening to me because I always pretend to my loved ones & friends that I am strong and I can do everything. But deep inside, I am crumbling down.
I know that I need to face it because I feel I am drowning, up to the point that I cannot breathe anymore. I needed help because what is happening to me is beyond me.
When I see in front of my eyes that my children are getting affected badly because of the picture I painted, I surrender. I don’t want them to be like me.
Now, after more than 24 months of diligent meditation, I am almost at the end of the 7 levels.
I can say from then on, I changed a lot positively and so did my life. I find happiness everywhere. It feels like I am being reborn.
The investment of my time discarding has helped me understand and learn a lot of things.
I have given up the need to always be right.
I can now allow things to happen which have thought me to let go easily and to give up the need to control.
By emptying my mind, I find my quiet pace without having to go through some self-defeating talk or having to worry on judgment or criticism from other people.
I have learned to give up complaining and blaming anyone. Instead I now find myself start to take responsibility of my actions.
I don’t give in to excuses and to other people’s expectations anymore, not to mention my expectations of other people.
I became open to change and give up my limiting beliefs.
I learn that we only create our own fear so when I empty my mind, I am now able to accept even the unknown future.
I learn to detached too so I can coexist with everyone.
Now, I find happiness everywhere, it’s like the wind, you cannot see nor touch it but you know it is there.
The daily clutter I throw away through meditation has helped me embrace my authentic self and has given me an unexplainable peace.
And with peace comes the unbelievable gratitude I have in my heart…it is overflowing. The more I empty myself, the more I give thanks. What follows is the feeling of unfathomable peace.
I am amazed at the power of the emptying the mind. With this method, I now understand how to be one with God.
Truly, without the self is the way to everlasting life.
It saved my life! Now I am full of energy.
One day as I was walking down on the street near my house, I saw a sign that said Jackson Heights Meditation. I went inside the meditation center just out of curiosity to find out what it was all about. A nice gentleman greeted me at the center and gave a demonstration of the method. I thought there was something good about this method so I started to join this meditation.
Now I am very thankful to the founder teacher Woo Myung for such a wonderful method. As a matter of fact, he has saved my life! With this meditation, I’ve felt deep changes in my life. In the past, I had many compulsive thoughts which I did not know where they came from. They were very overwhelming and I always felt irritated and depressed with lack of energy. That’s why I used to take medication for depression and insomnia.
In the short time that I have meditated so far, however, I have great differences: I don’t take such medication anymore and sleep very well without pill. My family doctor notices my changes and says I look much brighter and full of energy. Of course, my anger and hatred coming from past traumatic effect has decreased a lot. So I decided to come to the main center in Korea to improve my subtraction. My experience here is fantastic! I’m able to empty my minds much better and much easier!
Well, I was religious for a long time and prayed for God all the time. I couldn’t get peace of mind through prayer but now my mind is peaceful through this meditation. I feel very grateful and wish with all my heart to finish the whole program until the end. Most of all, I would love to guide this path to other people. I introduced it to my son and one of my close friends and they enjoy doing this meditation now in the local center. Hopefully many people in the world will join this meditation!
This Is The Best Miracle That Has Ever Happen To Me
My big sister introduced me to this Meditation and could not wait to start. I used to curse the day I was born because I felt life had no meaning at all. I was a great wanderer about life and many are the times I felt like giving up on everything. My self-esteem was so down such that I could not talk in public. I did not have confidence at all. Even though I changed my friends and environments, they seemed to be no changes even with money.
When I started to meditate I was so determined because I wanted to experience changes in my life. After I did one week intensively, I felt so relieved. After the pictures that were trapping in me unknowingly disappeared. I could not believe what I was experiencing for I felt like it was my first time to breathe and see the world as it is. I was so surprised to realize that I had lived only in my mind all along which was a heavy burden and pain. It is so amazing how the method made it happen beyond my expectation. It was the solution to all my worries, curiosities and anxieties.
I feel so contented and confident in everything I do. This is the best miracle that has ever happen to me. It is through this Meditation that I got to realize and know how the life is amazing and greater. I feel like I live life itself now with all the wisdom and certainty.
It is even hard not to keep smiling because my happiness comes from within. It’s a treasure that everyone must find and realize how life is greater. I feel so freed and liberated. It is more than words can say until you experience it.
I believe it can really help anyone for it’s so easy and clear. I hope for everybody to get a chance and do it. To the founder of method I will always be grateful forever. It’s totally a new world of happiness and endless joy. Thank you very much.
It is the best decision of my life.
I started this meditation because for 35 years I searched for happiness. Trying to find peace of mind through material possessions thinking that the more I have the less I will have to worry about. With worries of the future, thinking that the materials would make me feel more secure.
My relationships with people were not great because I could only see everything from my point of view, and I was always judging other peoples actions.
After starting to subtract and by following this simple method, I could feel a calmness coming into my mind, even after just a few sessions.
The more I subtracted the more I could see I was living inside a picture world that I had made. I decided at this point that I would do this meditation till the end.
This turned out to be the best decision of my life.
My life now is so peaceful and my relationships with people are amazing and fun. I have found my purpose in life and why I live, which has resulted in boundless happiness.
All the wants and desires I had have all gone away like melting snow and the only thing I want for is to let everyone know about this amazing method, and to come out of there mind worlds and live in the true world.
This Meditation Brought True Happiness When There Was No Hope.
Have you ever had to deal with losing your job? Have you ever gotten divorced? Have you ever had to deal with the death of a parent or loved one? Have you ever had an accident so serious that it required multiple surgeries and a lengthy recovery?
Well, I experienced all of these things in the course of 3 years in my lifetime. I’m not sharing my story to get your sympathy. My intent is to illustrate just how dark and hopeless a man’s life can get and that there is a way out of the pain.
All of the events I mention happened so fast, I didn’t know what to do. Since I was a very young boy, I had always dealt with depression and anxiety. I also had skin problems and digestive problems because of the stress in my life. After all of these events, all of my problems got worse. I was at the lowest point in my life. I was so depressed I was actually frozen. I couldn’t answer the phone or go out with friends. Some days I couldn’t get out of bed or find a reason to stop sleeping. I didn’t eat. I had trouble finding any happiness in life. I was on medication for pain, anxiety, depression, my skin condition and high blood pressure. I tried exercise and changing my diet to healthier foods but all of these changes were only bringing temporary relief. I was miserable and withdrawn and didn’t want to be around anyone. Even when I was around others, I still felt lonely and sad. My doctor diagnosed me with severe depression and this scared me even more. I really felt like there must be a point to life; I needed a purpose for living.
While I was recovering from my accident, I had a lot of time to sit and think about my next step. It was the darkest time in my life and I remember thinking that of all the things I’d done – joining the Army, going to college, my career and my marriage – nothing I’d achieved brought me any fulfillment. I achieved many goals in my lifetime but nothing ever brought me the satisfaction that I thought it would once I attained what I was after. I found myself becoming reflective and seeking spirituality. I was looking for something that would give my life a purpose.
In the town I live in, this meditation center had a sign up for a free lecture. I’d driven past the Center 3 or 4 times that particular week and thought that this meditation might be a good thing to bring some peace and spirituality back into my life. Finally, one day I stopped in and listened to the lecture and I can tell you, honestly, I didn’t know what to make of a lot of the information that was shared with me. The one thing that I did connect with was that I felt like I was all alone because I was living in my own little world in my head. I knew that I had built a world in my mind of how I thought everything should be and nothing and nobody could ever match my view of my world.
That one connection was enough to get me to sign up and meditate for the first time. I meditated for two classes in a row that evening and began throwing away my remembered thoughts. The next day, I found myself running back to meditate again. The relief was that significant. After a week of meditating, I started to feel brighter and realized that I wasn’t alone at all; I belonged and was part of this world. Everything began to look beautiful in my life. People were beautiful. Houses were beautiful. The sky was beautiful!
I’d never felt this way before and all of the medication, exercise, diets and doctors that I’d dealt with in my entire life had never been able to make me feel this positive and connected to the world. None of these things worked. They were all just coating the real problem and giving me a temporary feeling of relief. I knew at that point that this meditation was the reason I was getting better and so I meditated diligently for the next year. In that time, I was able to get back in the game – back into life! I got off of all my medication and felt even better. My doctor was shocked when he saw how positive and happy I was. My blood pressure returned to normal. My signs of anxiety and depression had faded away. For the first time in my life, my skin was clear and back to normal. It was a miracle! I realized that all of my life, I was living in my own dark picture world in my mind and that was what made me so sick. None of the medications I’d been prescribed or any of the doctors I had seen were able to make me feel any better, but here I was – finally cured.
I found peace, fulfillment, TRUE HAPPINESS and a purpose for my life. By discarding all of my thoughts, pictures, memories and standards, I was starting to feel the benefits of a healthier, cleaner mind and my physical body was able to function properly, ultimately healing all of my ailments – both mental and physical.
I started to wake up and stopped living in my own thoughts all of the time. My relationships improved. People asked me why I was smiling and I didn’t even realize that I was smiling. I began to work more effectively. I became able to accept others as they are and accept the world as it is without the judgment I used to impose on everything in my life. You can’t imagine how grateful I am to this meditation. Freedom from my own miserable thoughts has brought peace and wisdom into my life.
As I said earlier, I’m not sharing my story to get your sympathy. I’m sharing it as a testimonial of what this meditation has done for me and what it will do for you. If you are reading this and you identify with any part of my story, I strongly urge you to begin this meditation immediately! (Even if you don’t identify with any part of my story, I strongly urge you to begin this meditation immediately!) In our society, there are so many people who look completely happy and successful from the outside because they earn a lot of money or have a great career or because they have an expensive car and a beautiful family. You may be surprised to learn that because we are all living in our own dark mind world, everyone struggles with pain, sadness and loneliness. The urgency of my condition is what drove me to find this meditation faster than others.
There’s a saying that if there are 7 billion people living in this world then there are 7 billion realities. That means 7 billion people all living in their own personal mind worlds. It’s now time for everybody to stop living in their human mind world and co-exist together in reality. No more pain. No more stress. No more burdens. Only love, peace and liberation from pain and struggle.
Even if you can’t accept everything you’ve read in this testimonial or what you hear in the lecture, please just try this method and see for yourself. I promise you will understand everything that you question as you clean your mind. In my case, my mind was so full of stress and pictures it was making me sick – even killing me. I’m not quite finished with this meditation method, but I now know my purpose in life and it brings such great freedom and peace. If I walked out of the lecture that day and hadn’t begun meditating, I don’t even know if I’d still be alive today. Please know that you don’t have to suffer or live with the pain in your mind world. This meditation saved my life and it can save yours too.
For the first time, I feel that I really have a purpose. I have a true goal and real purpose in life. And that’s a big thing for me.
Without this meditation I would have never been able to reflect back on myself and my life. That’s for sure. Maybe I could have been able to cover up my pain or something with some other method, I don’t know. But I would have never been able to look back on myself and see how I have acted and what my role and my part were in everything. I would still have blamed the world and blamed everybody else and kept that mindset that it was everybody else’s fault and not mine. I’ve come to realize that it’s also a big piece of pride that I’m carrying around. For me it was always very important how I appear to others and I didn’t want to show myself weak, or didn’t want to open up to other people. So I closed myself.
I was always comparing myself with others. If that other somehow had achieved something more than me, I didn’t like that person. If that person had done less than me, then I could be ‘humble’. Then I could be a nice person and take care of that person. Then I thought I was great because I was so nice to that weak person. So that was my life. Always measuring, always trying to come across as the best somehow. If there was no competition, I could be nice.
It might sound strange maybe, at least from the culture I come from where we’re supposed to love ourselves and try to be better all the time. Because that’s something I really tried to do, to love myself, to tell myself I was great. This meditation method is a bit of opposite of that. You realize that you are not great. And that’s actually a big relief. It’s really a big relief. Because it’s a big burden, walking around thinking you are great, and thinking that you have to be great all the time. Now that I am freeing myself from that ego and pride, the world around me has become nicer; it treats me more gently nowadays. Yeah, it’s funny. Before, the world was my enemy. It is not anymore.
I am changing everyday with subtraction method!
After practicing this meditation my life seems so clear and has more meaning. I appreciate now that I was meant to have been a mother and I have a place. I feel gratitude for what I have without wanting more. Relationships with friends have been amended and are more fruitful than ever. I feel more compassion for anyone from strangers right up to those closest to me.
My stress and anxiety is reduced dramatically, even the children and the dogs are less stressed. In the past I always followed my mind. Since following the method and discarding the pictures in my mind I feel I am finding the true me and my fears and insecurities are washed away. Even from the first few levels of this meditation I feel the change in me and I am still changing day by day.
Through all this I can say that this mediation has overcome all that I was and without the method I don’t know what I would have done. I am so grateful to the founder, for the method, everyone at the local centre and all the helpers for saving my life.
I threw away many negative attitudes I had lived with for years.
I found that I was able to release a lot of anger, shame and fear in my life. I found intense feelings of abandonment within my mind that I never knew existed before and it was finally released. I threw away many negative attitudes I had lived with for years. During my life, I didn’t know that I had them, but once I found it through meditation, I was able to discard. Those negativities are completely gone. Now I feel more peaceful, hopeful and happy.
Understanding the world was important to me. Consequently, I lived in my head a lot. I was always thinking, evaluating and criticizing. Since my mind was always busy, I never felt I could rest. I still have many curiosities in this world, but now there is less chatter in my head after doing this meditation. I feel like there’s more room in my head; it is clearer, calmer and I have become less judgmental. There were always people at work and in my community that really annoyed me but now they don’t bother me anymore. I can see our differences so I don’t have the negative feelings towards them, nor do I have those negative feelings in my body. The pain and psychological wounds from the past are just not there anymore. My relationships are much better, especially with my children and the closest people. I can even look back my childhood and understand it from a much larger point of view instead of my own self-centered point of view. I no longer feel the pain from those old conflicts.
I am so happy to have found this meditation method. I find it more effective, more economical and deeper than any other therapy. It is a self-paced method and has brought me an inner calmness, compassion, and clarity. Moreover it is really simple yet works. It also differs from other meditations in that it actually has an end. I look forward to the day when I have successfully released all the clutter in my mind and I can experience the world as it truly is.
Joy of human completion
Throughout the process of the guided method my life began to transform as my burdens began to melt away. Relationships improved as I no longer had my self-centered judgements of others. I began to realize that happiness comes from within and can only be realized through the meditation method of letting go of the “self” we ourselves created and finding the true self.
Step by step your life will change as your mind changes to the infinite universe mind through the method of subtraction. Since achieving human completion, I now know what it means and why it is the most important thing in the world for each and every person. The meaning and purpose of why we are here is to become complete. To be complete is to have eternal life. It is very stressful going through life without knowing answers to the basic questions of human existence: why am I here? where am I going? what is my meaning and purpose? Now that I am complete I know all the answers which have given me such a great inner peace.
Being complete has also allowed me to know the principles of the world, as well as knowing the meaning of the scriptures. This is also proof of the transformation to the universe mind which is the mind of wisdom. So not knowing what Human Completion is, I took a leap of faith and found out that it was beyond anything I could have imagined. Even better than the heaven that I dreamt of. Human Completion is to live completely transformed from pain to joy; from living confined to repetitive thoughts, behaviors, and reactions to living with ultimate freedom; from living with ignorance – not knowing the principles of the world to living with wisdom; from living self-centered to living without greed and now doing for others is joyful; to live with constant peace and happiness is the best way to live well. I am truly grateful for this era of Human Completion and it is my hope that everyone will become complete soon.
I am eternally happy regardless of conditions
I always wished that everyone around me and I were always happy. However, it seemed like happiness was conditional. To fulfill my yearnings for happiness, I participated in sports, music, various social events, volunteering activities, etc. I enjoyed those moments when I kept myself busy, but soon I felt a void within. It seemed like my life was filled with cycles of ups and downs. I questioned the impermanence of life and always feared losing my loved ones. Also I tried to perfect my character by reading self-help books and quotations, but I couldn’t find anything practical that gave me long-lasting happiness.
After my very first session, I felt like the weight of the world had been lifted off of my shoulders. I instantly knew this was the answer. I began to meditate diligently. I was able to discard all of the clutter in my mind, through the simple, precise and logical meditation methods.
Each baggage I discarded raised my level of happiness. After completion of the meditation, I am eternally happy regardless of conditions. I am now able to appreciate my life and everyone around me. I am truly thankful to this meditation, and with the greatest sincerity, I invite you to try it for yourself.
I know I am on my way back home
As soon as I started the practice, and began to throw away the mental pictures of ideas, the concepts about me, the world, my life, and my relationships, I felt as if I am taking a huge burden off from my shoulder. The void that was created by deleting my imaginary world is filled up now with natural clarity. Everything in my life has been positively affected by this meditation. My family relationships, my work, the relationship I have with others, and most importantly, the relationship with me.
I learned to accept others and life events as they are, without analyzing, judging or classifying. The people that I interact with are dealing with me with much more ease now; because there is no need to prove anything to me and I am not trying to prove anything to them.
This meditation allows me to create a “space” between me and the things that are happening to me, and in that space I have the opportunity to decide how to react on whatever that is happening. My life now has meaning, hope, and goals. I know I am on my way back Home. I cordially recommend and invite all of you who are now reading these words to call the nearest center and start practicing it immediately. This meditation changed and saved my life and it will do the very same for yours.
The difference in my life … can be described with one word: Gratitude.
I don’t have any dramatic life story to tell. From the outside, my life looks quite ordinary. I grew up in a safe environment in a suburb in the outskirts of Stockholm. I had friends, a Nintendo video game and everything a kid could wish for. My family was not religious and relatively open-minded, so I was free to make my own life decisions. I graduated from university and got a job at an IT company and thought I would be happy but, in my mind, I was never truly happy. Every time I achieved something that I wanted, I just wanted something else, something more. I was constantly stuck in my thoughts with my wandering mind. I was always wondering, stuck in my own thoughts, asking myself why I had so many thoughts in my head. I tried so many different things to find an answer but everything I tried only gave me a temporary release.
Though very quickly I realized by doing this meditation that this thinking was about myself and the reason that I think so much and why I was so stressed was because I was caring only about myself. For me, I used to carry things that were unnecessary. I knew that ruminations were unnecessary and bad for me but I didn’t want to nor know how to let go. However, through this meditation method I learnt how to truly let go of the worries and thoughts and to me that is true relief.
Now, there is a huge difference between the me before and the me now. Before, I needed so many things in life to be happy. I needed my hobby and I needed to have certain people in my life. I thought I needed a lot of things. Now I have no worries about the future so with this mind I can just live and the universe will take care of things for me. Now I have also learned that when I sincerely care about others more than myself my stress fades away and I now know how to truly contribute to the world. The difference between my life before and after the meditation can be described with one word: Gratitude.
I feel so much gratitude for this meditation, for being able to let go, and for being able to confirm with my mind that I am fundamentally one with everything around me.
