There is a saying I have which I often tell my Jung SuWon students: “There is no universe without you.” By this, I mean that the universe which you experience is as large as your perception. No bigger, no smaller. What you experience is what you perceive. The world you embrace is as large as your awareness.

One of my students, Stewart, worked at a large company here in Silicon Valley. After a year of training in Jung SuWon, he discovered a big surprise going to work one day. As he was walking toward the building’s entrance, he suddenly saw a beautiful garden. He had passed it perhaps a thousand times, but never until this moment did he notice it. For him, the garden simply did not “exist.” Through training in Jung SuWon however, his universe was expanding. He was becoming more aware of many things that had not existed until he recognized them: people that were available to interact with him, sports activities he never knew he liked, musical talent which he didn’t know he had, and now this garden which suddenly “appeared” one day.

Has something like this happened to you? How aware are you of what’s around you? Are you wrapped up in a narrow, limited perspective, obviously of special joys and pleasures than may be around you right now?

Many of my students who train at Jung SuWon tell me that at first they don’t hear traffic or train noises outside. Then after a few months of training, when their awareness begins expanding, they start noticing the noise outside as well as new sounds during their meditation.

Realize that everything that is, already exists. What we can do to enrich our lives is become more aware of what’s already here. The object of life is not just to exist. The object of life is to exist meaningfully, joyfully, energetically, purposefully, creatively! To do that, you must develop and expand your energy. Are you ready? Let’s go!

In NorthStar come walk with me, dance with me, let us sing together, and uncover all the beauty in the world around us!

Have a most wonderful day!

With love from my heart to yours,
