“True awareness means being right where you are, right now, without fear or worry or obsession about the future or past!”

Dr. Tae Yun Kim, “Seven Steps to Inner Power”

Yesterday I saw that the paint has worn away on a parking space outside where I work, in just such a way that the remaining paint now looks like a heart!

What are the odds of that, really? Kind of a miraculous, I think.

And definable it was a small miracle that I actually saw it yesterday because I’ve walked by that parking space, every day, for several years. But until yesterday, I never noticed that little bit of paint that now looks like a heart.  (So much for any awareness I might have thought I have claimed 🙂 . )

Seeing the painted heart, I remembered the quote, above, on awareness from my mentor Dr. Tae Yun Kim.

Suddenly I saw how  awareness – or in this case how my lack of awareness – affects me. All the other times that I have walked by that painted line, I was unaware, immersed in thinking, stressed, or worried about something or another – maybe a lot, maybe a little – but always enough such that I never saw this little paint heart. Even though it was literally under my feet.




About H.Chamberlain

I am Sr. Software engineer at Lighthouse Worldwide Solutions, and a black belt at Jung SuWon Martial Art Academy. I have been lucky to train for almost 20 years under 10th Dan, Great Grandmaster Dr. Tae Yun Kim. Before I started training I felt so lost and empty inside. I was 25 years old and didn't know what my life was supposed to be or what I was supposed to do with it. Not feeling purpose in my life, I felt just grey and like I was drifting. Then life took some unexpected turns but what could have been one of the toughest times in my life turned out to be the point where I changed my life for the better through what Dr. Kim teaches and training at Jung Suwon Martial Arts.Yahoo! I thank God for an awesome life!
