My wife found a meditation brochure in the library about 5 years ago and asked me to read it. She told me that she thought that it might interest me. At that time I had been reading various books about the mind, spirituality, religion, and science but none of them contained the answers or simple explanations that I was looking for. When I read the meditation brochure for the first time I was truly amazed. Never before had I heard such a simple and scientific explanation of what the mind actually is. I had always been the type of person who looked for flaws in other people’s logic, but for me it was impossible to disagree with anything that I read in the brochure. When I thought about it, I realized that my mind was simply a set of pictures that I had taken of the world. It also made sense to me that if I could throw away these pictures, I would feel less stress, less burden, and more freedom. So my wife and I decided to schedule an appointment for a free introductory lecture. When we got to the meditation center the first thing that I noticed was... View Article
In childhood I had a loving family. School was always pretty easy for me. I was naturally social so it was easy to make friends. I was athletic and competed well in sports. Till my early teens I was pretty simply happy. Then a friend of mine asked me what I really thought happens after death. We had both been told our whole lives that we go to heaven or hell according to the life we have lived. We never really bought into that though, so when he asked I realized how important that question is. I really had no idea; only blind speculation, but I thought whatever came after death was probably eternal. So that is when I started very seriously wandering about why I exist and why anything exists. People around me would sometimes try to give answers to these questions, but those answers were vague and often seemed quite fantastical. I could not find any evidence in the world to support those things that seemed like fantasies so I dove deeper and deeper into searching for some clarity. I tried looking within myself but it felt like the greatest haze held its place in my mind. So... View Article
I always wondered what it would be like to feel always happy but no matter where I went or what I did, my mind was always filled with negative thoughts, sadness, loneliness, doubts, and worries. I carried stress, worries, and regrets everywhere ? to my family, my friends, to my work. Everything was still the same. I really wanted to improve my life but the older I was getting the worse I felt. I was becoming more nervous and more impatient. I found that the smallest things would make me very angry to the point where I completely lost control over myself. I would cry uncontrollably, yell, complain, and blame everybody. I would worry over things I had no control over. I doubted everything. When I was little I started showing all kinds of strange behavior. I didn’t want to be like this but I couldn’t help it. After I started going to school I had a very hard time making friends. I was very shy and introverted. I stayed at home a lot. I only had one or two friends. At home my mom and dad spoiled me very much. I was their favorite daughter, the smartest, the prettiest,... View Article
I became interested in this meditation as I saw the changes of my mom. I was surprised that she did not have the same patterns of behavior and I was always curious about what she was doing. In the meantime, I was going through a time of depression and that made me to find a new way. My mom invited me to this meditation and I went to the seminar that Mr. Chang gave in December 2011. At first, I found the explanation very new. I also saw the amazing video of a personal experience of Viry (a meditation helper in Chile) and I was finally convinced. I was moved by her experience and felt culturally closer. When I started meditating, I realized that I was slowly released from much of the stress I had at the time. Also, every time I came home, this meditation, I received much affection and they were always happy! I thought, ‘wow, this has to be different. There must be something deeper here.’ As I went through the first level of this meditation, I felt happy more and more, as if loads were removed from my mind. When I went to the second level,...
