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.
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.
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’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 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 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.
You start to see yourself, the way you are in all aspects of your life
The cool thing about this meditation method is that it has this ability to show you who you are from a much bigger perspective than yourself. It is really hard to see yourself as yourself, so the method has this way of showing yourself from a bigger perspective. Then you get to reflect on yourself on how you actually are and you see things in yourself. And I saw things in myself that I did not realize that I had before the method. I think that is one of the biggest strength of this meditation. Speaking from my own experience, I found it really hard to bring big changes within myself but this method has helped me get rid of my habits and useless negative thoughts.
I am definitely happier now and also just more relaxed. I feel better within myself and that is the best way to define happiness for me. Also, I am more focused. I mean I work with computers and it is important to have patience and really be able to focus throughout the day. I work with my head the whole day, thus it is so important to be able to be relaxed within myself. Not always trying to move, not always thinking about something else, just staying put; and the meditation has definitely helped me with that.
The meditation has also improved me as a husband and father. One problem that I think in many relationships I find is; you have this expectation of the other to give you something the whole time. You want to get something from that person. And I think the meditation has changed that perspective for me and my wife. It is now more about putting in the work yourself without underlying expectations for one another. Also, this meditation has changed the way I see my children. I seem them more as the way they are than I did before as a parent and as a father. There was a certain bias that came with the strong attachment that I had for my children. Getting rid of that, I think you start to see your family in a more realistic way. This is also good for the kids, because they feel that and they feel actually more relaxed around me.
People around me comment that I look prettier
I started this meditation after being exhausted in human relationships. That is probably why my greatest change comes from when I did level 2. Out of all, I gained self-esteem and thus I was able to be confident amongst other people. Perhaps people around me noticed my change too; they would comment that I looked prettier. I was even asked if I had gotten a boyfriend. These were words that I’ve never heard before. Level 3 and 4 were relatively long and tedious levels but as I heard “patience is sour but the fruit it bears is sweet”. There weren’t special changes that I noticed but I did feel that my mind was ever more relaxed. Even when being with others, I didn’t feel cumbersome and my behaviour became more natural to the point that I could enjoy myself and be comfortable amongst them. This is perhaps because I came to realize through level 3-4 that I always carried an obsession to be a good person in front of others.
I wanted to be a person that was honest and well-liked by others, but on the other hand I feared that I may look like a fool if I do so. However, if I know when I should be nice and honest and behave accordingly while knowing when I am not expected to act in such manner, I think I can avoid looking like a fool. Therefore one can be wise and sensible in being nice and honest.
It took me a year and a half to receive such wisdom though the four levels. Some people may have taken a shorter time or a longer time than me to go through these levels, but to me right now the length it took is not important. If I put it clearly, what is important to me is to how much my mind has become peaceful and free. It is more valuable to me as 36 years of time wasn’t able to bring such change. To the fact that I can empty out my mind; to that itself, I am grateful. This meditation allows you be grateful towards everything that is and was part of the same daily life you used to live, I wish that many others can feel the true happiness that comes from that.
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.
