Happy New Year 2022
Today is January 1st, 2022, it is a New Year. The past few years have been filled with unthinkable tragedies – an ongoing pandemic, natural disasters and so much loss – that have touch people all over the world. Sa Bu Nim often talked about taking care of your ‘seed’. Your seed is what it is that you want to accomplish in your life. Every moment by moment of every day of our lives are filled with challenges. Every day we all have responsibilities that we have to take care of. In the background you have to take care of your seed; nurture it. Sa Bu Nim talked about the importance of only going straight, to keep in your mind what you want. The moment you stop, your accomplishment is always just ahead or around the corner. The moment you stop, your seed will never sprout and grow.
Today a new year begins. Take a moment to reflect on yourselves and your ‘seed’. This year try to practice Shim Gum Do mind training even for 5 or 10 minutes every day. Cut thinking and take care of your seed.
I wish everyone a Happy New Year filled with health, joy, love and success.
