I embarked on an intensive spiritual journey at a relatively young age. Everything began when I fell severely ill for unknown causes at the age of 12 years old. Doctors did not know what caused the illness and what was going on with me. During the period of subsequent five years, I probably went through much more pain than a lot of people experience in a lifetime.
I was tremendously affected by this experience, which now I see as a gift. As a result, I began to explore Eastern philosophy, New Thought teachings, and alternative healing modalities. After I graduated from high school, I even joined an ESP training group, where I learned about the infinite power of the human subconscious mind and I witnessed people bending spoons with their minds only.
While I was in college, I delved deeper into spiritual practices. I daily practiced taichi, qigong, and meditation. I also read tons of books on metaphysical, spiritual, and self-development themes.
I actually dreamt of writing a spiritual book of my own in the vein of Shakti Gawain’s Living in the Light, Gary Zukav’s Seat of the Soul or Sanaya Roman’s Living With Joy. I knew that I could write a book that would enlighten readers. Since I was lucky to have been exposed to a lot of spiritual information, I wanted to deliver this spiritual information to the world. As a native of Korea living in North America at the time, I wanted to present Eastern teachings in a way that Western readers would comfortably understand and relate to.
In 2004, I met Dr. Thelma Barer-Stein, author of “You Eat What You Are,” who believed in my dreams and encouraged me to write a book that would enlighten people. After I completed a manuscript, she actually became my agent and contacted a number of publishers on my behalf, including New World Library and Hayhouse. While New World Library showed much interest in my manuscript, it did not work out in the end.
Years have passed since then. As my spiritual knowledge deepened further, I found myself increasingly wanting to share my knowledge with other people. Instead of trying to get a book published, however, I decided to simply start a blog. This time, my goal is not only to share my knowledge with the world, but also to create my own personal bible to which I can turn for my own spiritual growth and personal guidance.
I plan to post articles that I think would be of value to readers. Topics will include pretty much everything one would expect from this type of blog, everything from spiritual enlightenment to alternative healing.
However, I would like to point out that this blog is not for everyone. Everyone is different and so is everybody’s reality. With this in mind, do not believe anything written on this blog or take it seriously unless it resonates with you. One thing I know for sure is that the spiritual teacher is within each and every one of us.
