Dr. Tae Yun Kim’s Quotes Inspire Me

A quote from Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim’s book, Seven Steps to Inner Power, which holds great meaning for me:

“Here is an important point to help you understand your emotions.  Emotions don’t come out of nowhere; they follow thoughts.  The positive or negative emotions you feel are a result of an idea you have first.  If you are feeling the emotion of anger, the thought of creating the emotion may be something like, I am thwarted; I am being deceived; I don’t get my way.  The feeling of affection may be created by, I value this person’s honesty; I desire to express my appreciation.”
