Yes, I am really smiling!
Success, power and money are the game I play. I am a businesswoman. I work hard for everything I do. I have everything a girl would wish for… name it, I have it. If I don’t, I buy it. Despite all my achievements in life, deep inside, I was still searching for the true happiness and inner peace I had not found in material things all this time. In the afternoon of March 2014, while paying for my groceries, I found a brochure of this meditation in Korean grocery. And it was the beginning of my life changing journey.
Immediately started going to the center and on the 1st day, after doing the meditation, I went back home and slept like a baby. I have not had that kind of sleep for years. I was so amazed with the result that I started to keep coming to the center to meditate and get better sleep.
I wanted to accelerate my study and decided to go to the main center in Korea. On my way to the youth camp, Mr. Lee, the administrator, was kind enough to answer my questions. “Is the study difficult?” He replied. “it is easy and difficult at the same time. Humans are stubborn. If you follow the method diligently, it is easy. You just have to trust the method.” And so I just followed the method.
While in the center, I was amazed at the number of students doing the study. So I started asking my co-students why they are in the center. One of the students shared that his brother really changed after completion. Another student said her daughter changed and hearing their life changing stories intrigued me. Who is the founder of this method? How the thought about this method? And how did this method change many lives?
On November 30, after passing levels 4, I went back home and I, myself was amazed of the result of the meditation. This meditation really works! I saw the dramatic changes in me and even my family has noticed it. Now, I am calmer, more patient and (my daughter noticed) I was smiling. Yes, I am really smiling! It has been years that I have not smiled. Problems here and there have made me stronger as a person but not happier. Doing levels 4 meditation have given me such joy and peace that I myself could not explain. The feeling was so amazing!!!
With such grateful mind, I decided to finish the study until the end and become a helper. I wanted to share to others what I have experienced and still experiencing every day. I learned to really appreciate what God has given to me and I become even more grateful day by day. I am thankful that now my daughter is doing meditation with me. I hope and pray that my family members will also do the same soon. I have seen the importance of this meditation and the benefit it will bring to everyone.
I have always believed in this “when the student is ready, the teacher will appear.” God really works in mysterious ways. God knows if we are ready or not, I have found my true happiness and inner peace in this meditation. May you find yours as well.
I learned how to let go of the things
I learned about this meditation by just googling it. I decided to go to the center because I was feeling stressed over some things and I wanted a guide to make sure I was meditating correctly. To be honest, I was a bit skeptical at first when I attended the introduction.
It took me another 2weeks to come back to the center and give it a try. Then I decided to just give it a month and see what happens. That was in August 2014. I’ve been meditating since then.
I trusted in the method and just kept practicing. It didn’t happen overnight but overall I feel much lighter. I realized I had carried so much emotional and mental baggage. The biggest thing I learned is letting go. I now have the method of letting go of my past, my mistakes, false minds, and even meditation itself.
The struggles of life are still there but in general I have a better disposition and I am much happier. I’m very thankful for having found this meditation because the method is effective.
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.
Now, I am a much happier person in a different way-the true happiness beyond my mind
How did you start this meditation?
I’ve been looking for answers about who I really was all my life. In 2015, I was at this well-being fair and it was there where I got to know about this meditation. The helper at the booth explained about universe mind and the false human mind and it just made sense. I knew straight away that this was the answer. I went to the centre the next day and started meditation!
What made you decide to go to the main center?
As I meditated, I could understand about me and the world clearer and wanted to get to the end quickly. So, the main center is the place where you can do intensive meditation and I thought I would try.
So, did you enjoy your experience at the Main Center in Korea?
Of course! It was fantastic! I loved it!
A lot of people meditating together and supporting each other and helping each other is just so wonderful. Also, the lecturers at the main center are so amazing. Once I was asked to share my experiences in front of other people in the class, the only thing I said was to just listen to helpers’ instructions and follow the method and you would just be fine. Basically that was what I did! Whenever I struggled with something in my mind, I tried to listen carefully what helpers were saying and tried to meditate accordingly, and then I would simply find all the answers within me. It is so great!
What would you like to say to people?
I would like to recommend people to try this meditation. Because it really helped me and it really works.
I found my purpose and I found all the answers. I could say I was a happy person but that was with human mind which could change easily depending on the situation. Now, I am a much happier person in a different way and it is the true happiness beyond my mind could’ve ever grasped before. I hope people can try this and become truly happy!
I am really grateful for this meditation and for the world which guided me to the truth. Thank you!
It changed myself to live freely
I was given a brochure twice, about this meditation.
I was generally interested in meditation, but there was something about this, which made me curious and went for an introductory seminar.
As i was listening, it became very clear what the mind was, and i was living bound by the story of my life, creating my own mind world, and that was not my natural peaceful state of mind. I wondered all my life why we were all so different.
I changed many conditions in my life, which made me happy for a while, but the same patterns seemed to sneak in. I did the same acts which made me change the conditions in the first place,….endless….. never ended up satisfied or truly happy –always chasing something.
So it made perfect sense, i had to change myself, my mind, to live freely.
I started straight away, and as i was letting go of all the stuff in my mind, i realized a lot of things. I became free from all the fixed ideas and conceptions which I believed as true.
It was such a relief to finally understand myself and became more accepting of others and conditions. My stress just fell off and i could enjoy the moment, it was just like finding the comfortable place without all these thoughts which used to make me indecisive of what to do.
I just changed as i meditated and i felt more comfortable, became more focused and more productive. Most of all, I could have joy for no particular reason.
I became more appreciative. Life became so much simpler and easier. It is just really joyful and peaceful.
I urge everyone just to simply try this amazing meditation, to find the true state of mind, and be free from all these thoughts and stress which are causing conflicts and burden.
Everyone should live freely and joyful and appreciate life, now is the time to live, now is the time to find true happiness. i m grateful to the teachers, helpers, and all the people.
I’m grateful. I’m truly grateful, everyday
My relationship with my family was rough before the meditation. I had a lot of resentment toward my parents because I felt that they didn’t love me and they loved my brothers and sister. I came to realize that I only remembered the negative experiences over the years and never really saw the positive things they did for me. Due to that, we were not in talking terms.
However, the meditation has allowed me to reconnect with my parents and I even arranged a trip to visit them in Vietnam for two weeks. They were unsure of my motives and just how genuine I was, but the visit was so wonderful. We apologized to each other, we laughed, we cried. I was able to truly apologize to my parents for all the pain I caused them. Before I could never say I was sorry or that I was wrong. Now, I am able to have a loving relationship with my family. I am able to tell them I am sorry and that I love them. I don’t feel sorry for myself like I did before when things didn’t go the way I wanted it to. I truly have more love and understanding for people.
Out of the family, my whole outlook and perspective on life has improved drastically. I find that I enjoy my job more, my children more, even myself more. I have a deeper love, appreciation, and compassion for all people I encounter. I feel so fortunate to be part of such an amazing organization and know in my heart that this meditation has the power and ability to heal those who choose to open their hearts. From my amazing experience, I encourage everyone to give the Meditation a try to find true happiness.
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.
This meditation is? “simple and so powerful”
Before meditation, the life I have lived from the outside looked good. Perhaps to the eyes of the people around me I was happy and confident with family, school and work but I was very worried and always felt pressured within. I always had this need to please everyone and was obsessed about maintaining an image for a good person in front of others. I was always hiding behind my fake smiles and heavy make-up, covering myself up to be perfectly good. Through the meditation I realized that this was all because I was so worried about how the world saw me. I was so worried that I never wore white socks or bright colors because people could then see how dirty my feet were. I felt as if the world was judging me for every little thing about me. My insecurities always overwhelmed me that I was haunted with insomnia.
However, reflecting back at my life, the meditation has really helped me see that I was only living inside this bubble. I was stuck inside a place where I cared only about my self-centered views and comparing myself and wanted to become better with my own standards that I had made to myself. Now that I look back at myself, I was so ridiculous! Riddling myself with so many worries.
I have done the meditation from level 2 in Korea, so I have not yet met people that know of the old me. However, even the people here say that from the time I’ve been here that I look brighter. I see my own change too, my insomnia is gone and I dance around in whatever colored socks, without makeup. When I no longer rely on the opinion of others, I feel much stronger and free. The greatest gift the mediation has allowed me is to allow me to see that the world does not spin around me. I have been living only for myself. For me, the greatest part of this meditation is to see reality, the true world, outside of my bubble.
Every day is a clean slate after meeting this meditation.
Within one month after I started this meditation, my behavior and habits began to drastically change. I used to sit in the back of my classes at my university daydreaming to pass the time, but after a month of meditating diligently I was sitting at the front of the room eager to listen and learn. In fact, learning became fun and didn’t feel like an endless chore like it had in the past. Better yet, I began to raise my hand in class to ask questions and give answers, which I was scared to do in the past out of fear. I noticed myself gradually becoming a positive, proactive person and my grades showed it too.
As I looked back on myself it was as if I was deaf. Deaf to the world around me, thinking that all I had in my mind was right. I couldn’t listen to anyone. This meditation opened up my mind and all senses to the world around me.
All of the positive changes I experienced with the meditation were extremely natural. They happened just by subtracting my ‘self,’ my ego. None of my actions felt forced, so I never felt exhausted like I had when I was just telling myself to be a positive person and happy. I slowly but surely lost the life that was causing me nothing but problems, and a whole new life opened up for me full of endless possibilities. My focus changed from avoiding my problems to proactively finding them and fixing them, by subtraction. Each level of the meditation was different and had a different enlightenment to look forward to, which made it enjoyable and exciting.
Be the change you want to see in the world
I think when I was born I chose 100% heart and zero head. I love people and love to help them. That has been part of my life for a long time and even the success in my career comes from it. However there came a point in my life where I sought for ways to help others but drove myself insane because I could not find a way to help the other. Once, one of my family members was suffering from depression. There was nothing that I could do to help and knowing that I couldn’t help that person brought me to an even deeper depression. However, once I started the meditation, I noticed a change in me. I realized that only I can change myself and only I can help myself. It was no longer about my need to help and improve others but it was more about being an example to the people who require the help. I found a way to show true compassion and love to others by helping myself. Everything I do and want to say in a short version is that ‘live by example and be the chance you want to see in the world.’
When I started the meditation in the U.S., my career grew a lot faster. People were nicknaming me as a “superstar” and I was awarded a title as the ‘Top 5 Person’ within my industry with a promotion of an executive VP. Though my career was successful I realized that my job made me so busy. I knew there were a lot of opportunities for me to grow through the meditation and I knew to gain something I needed to sacrifice something. Thus with a bold decision, I chose to go to Korea to invest in myself and it was not just a gold mine, but a diamond mine. I can see that most people who want to try the meditation are just so busy with their lives, but I wish they take a moment to invest in themselves to find what is that they truly want in their lives. For me, I just love who I am inside right now. The language and food was very different in Korea but it is nothing compared to the depth of the gratitude I have for the method because it has changed my whole entire life. Though the past 4 months of meditation in Korea, I was able get over my traumatic experiences in my past, conquer my phobias, and be free from the health conditions that has been following me all life. Many people tell me that I’ve changed a lot and tell me that I look brighter and younger.
At this point, my heart is full of joy and love and gratitude. So with this gratitude that is inside, I want to give this out to other people now, by being an example.
