Here is an excerpt from Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim‘s book, The Silent Master:
THE GOAL OF SELF-DISCOVERY
Silent Master Image I
You Are One of a Kind
Your Silent Master is your Real Self, your original Self. It expresses Itself through your thinking, through true Ideas and Thoughts in your mind. It is your eternal Selfhood that exists apart from your brain (which is a sensory processor only) and the personality traits imposed on you from your environment.
FREEDOM IS YOUR BIRTHRIGHT
You were born to be free! Just as nature is full of wildlife that is born in freedom, you, too, are meant to live free. You are a part of nature, too. And there is no greater freedom than to be the master of your own destiny. There is no greater happiness than to be who you are in truth not a copy or an imitation of someone else, but rather your own original self.
When you know who you are, you experience yourself as unique, one of a kind. You have a special place and a special purpose in being here. No one can take your place in life or in the universe. When you know who you really are, you become free because you realize you can be in charge of your life. You learn to use the natural power within you to realize your true desires, to set meaningful goals for yourself and to fulfill them successfully.”
