Book Review

I found the purpose of life.

I read while not moving for 3 hours. It was a shock; if this text was right, I can end my long-time wandering. I was always questioning why do I live, where do I come from, where do I go, and what is the right way to live. My inside always was futility itself, even though I was active in my own way through religion, and meditation. It was always a dilemma about how to direct my children as a parent; I was ashamed to tell them, “since others lived this way, you also should,” when even I did not know the way. In outwardly appearances, I seemed to be upright and okay, but it was hard since it felt like a mask. Even though I was often praying and doing charity work, there always were enemies and barriers with people who did not fit my ways of thinking.Gradually, I was more and more exhausted at myself who weren’t able to live as told by the Bible. Then, I read this book coincidentally. Before, we were told to throw away and release without any explanations as to “why?” In this book, there is an explanation.It was very simple and concise; it was realistically written without extraneous embellishments. If this is true, wow!! And it is unbelievable that the solution as well as the causes were very simply and clearly explained. Could my long-awaited questions be solved so simply?

Diamond in the rough

Woo Myung persistently emphasizes how NOW is the time to become complete through throwing away our false mind. This man has only one goal, one vision – to see the world, discard their self-centered worlds and live together as one mind and body. The Way To Become A Person In Heaven While Living is a diamond in the rough. Woo Myung gets straight to the point. The what?: Become the mind of nature’s flow and live eternally as the soul and spirit of the universe, of Truth. The How? Throw away the false mind, the dead mind. The where? “Ma Eum Soo Ryun is a place that focuses only on cleansing oneself (p. 73).” That drove everything home for me. The what, where, why, how’s. Finally, a clean-cut book on how to obtain Truth, authored by a man who solely focuses on teaching Truth. I’m extremely happy with this book and I highly recommend those who are willing to give Truth a chance, to read this book with an open heart and an open mind.


Meditate as you read

I didn’t really get it at first but it gets interesting the more I read it. My mind just gets so comfortable. I can’t stop reading it over and over again. This book really helps me to relax when I’m stressed out. I never got tired of reading this book no matter how many times I have read already, it still makes me feel comfortable just the same. It delivers what Truth is – so simple yet clearly. This book tells you how to live.


My curiosity leads me to new step toward spirituality.

I have been always interested in philosophy and human mind. So, when I saw the book and that the author was supposedly ‘enlightened’, it immediately caught my attention and got me curious about what he would say. Basically he explains that humans are living in his own mind world, which somewhat I agree, and that world is false picture world. I have never heard the human mind being compared as pictures and human body being compared as a camera. This is new to me and a very intriguing idea. He also explains one can become completed by discarding the pictures. Now I am curious about how we can actually throw away the pictures in the mind.


This book clears my mind.

I hadn’t read many religious or philosophical books, but noticing a pretty cover page, I picked up the book. Initially, the words such as human mind, God, creation and eternal world were unfamiliar and difficult. But despite the unfamiliarity, the book very easily spoke about the origin of the world, human, God, Universe, creation, etc. As anyone would have, I also had questions about the reason and purpose of living. But the first part of the book very clearly explained this. It also explained simply about Truth which was spoken about in Buddhism, Christianity and other religions; this helped me to understand the world of Truth mentioned by religions. Personally, I was having a difficult time in my life and I was much inspired by the message that human beings live in the false world and that through meditation, they can live forever in the true world. Just reading this book puts my mind at ease.

Everything live through the nature’s flow.

This book easily and concisely tells many people of the world the way to live the life of the nature’s flow; by discarding the false minds to be one with the world as the original true mind. This is possible when one seeks and becomes Truth; where oneness with the world occur while living with the nature’s flow. The book also speaks of the path to a complete freedom from self-made stories, as well as a method and a solution to deny and eliminate such self. I had really wanted to find Truth. I further understand the meaning of freedom and complete liberation; when one throws away the mind of self which self-concealed the originally existing Truth, the Universe mind revealed is the mind of Truth itself. Also the simple illustrations between pages added more amusement and interest with meanings.

The nature’s flow is the life of nature

Last March, when thousands of Japanese people died suddenly due to tsunami, I felt the futility of life with the feelings of loss and regrets. The book’s content was rather different from my usual thinking about life and it felt unfamiliar and somewhat shocking, but it helped me to self-reflect on my busy life filled with greed. This book pleadingly and earnestly states that the life I live currently is false and a dream; while living, I should wake up from the dream and live in the true world, instead of the dream world. I don’t understand the contents of the book completely, but I keep reading this book because I feel the genuineness of the author’s message that one must wake up from a dream and must not live in a dream world.

Despite its appearance, it is an amazing book.

Every person should read this book. And one must have a trust; there is nothing gained without having the trust. In the beginning of the book, it is written; “through many difficulties of life and self-reflections, he was able to open his eyes of the mind about Truth.” There is not even one single part that is wrong in this book. The author received a Mahatma Gandhi peace award and was appointed as an ambassador of peace through IAEWP. I would like to live forever in the eternal land. If I do not do this now, I would regret it. In the content of the book, it is stated, “One must repent to God that is the true mind of self. We repent in order to be born into the true, real world from the false world. Throwing away of the false self is throwing away of the false mind which is sin. Until Truth remains, one must throw away all of the pictures.” I want to throw away all of my past life until there is no pictures remaining in my mind. I had lived with much suffering, hardship, and unhappiness where there was no joy with nothing accomplished despite all of my work. I do not return to that; therefore, I truly want to eliminate all of things in my mind.
