The path is made as you are walking

Alejandra Pitripán / student / Santiago, Chile

At the end of 2011, I was in a complete despair. It was the year of no significance or meaning: I was about to graduate that year but had no plans after graduation, and I was really stressed. So I distanced myself from others and I started to defend myself. I got interested in meditations in general (like meditations you would see in movies).

One day I read a brochure from this meditation which my mom gave me, and it was exactly what I was looking for. The meaning of my life, who I am, where I am from – the meditation to know what real happiness is without stress. My path started from here. The center was a block away from my house and it was a vacation time, so I went to the center every day. And I meditated all day long, so I passed the levels very quickly. Each level was great and the center was comfy like my own home. When I was doing 2nd level, there was a seminar and I helped out as much as I can. This was when I met the teacher Woo Myung and I opened my mind to listen to his lectures.

I began to throw away the false minds which had created my attachments and despair. I was able to know why I was that way and also how I could live in the true world. So when I heard I could quickly finish the meditation program at the main center, I went to Korea. I liked it even better when my friend, Sol, accompanied me there.

It is difficult to let everything go, but it is necessary because these things don’t exist. This study is a path on my own and I have to do my best to finish it. In order to meditate, I told my parents about going to Korea. My parents understood me and helped out. It would be great if you could come to the meditation main center for about 6 months to throw away the false world and live in the true world with the Universe mind. I am thankful to know this method.
