Dr Tae Yun Kim’s Quotes Inspire Me

Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim shares her personal challenges and experiences in her book, The Silent Master.  

Maintain a Receptive Attitude


One of the activities in the Self-Discovery Weekends is the Freedom Dance. In this exercise, I ask students to abandon themselves in joyful free form movement around a fire for a symbolic shedding of the past. Because many people are unnecessarily critical (self-conscious) of themselves, this dance is designed to foster the receptive attitude needed to pursue true Self Discovery.

As mentioned in Chapter One, the willingness to be open and receptive to a new concept of yourself and a new life is an attitude that I call the empty cup. If you think you already know everything, if you think you already know yourself in total, your cup is already full and cannot hold anything new. This readiness being open and receptive to a new direction is a quality you obviously need every day, not just once in your life when you decide to pursue your true self.
