Woo Myung’s Calligraphy, Drawings, and Songs

Woo Myung is the founder of Subtraction Meditation as well as an author, a poet, a composer, a calligrapher, and an illustrator. There is one purpose to all of these works, which is to help people more easily learn the principles of the world and understand the method to become Truth. Woo Myung does not stop at giving talks and guiding meditation sessions. He has written poems of enlightenment, put those words to music to transform them to songs which he then sang himself for the recording. He also wrote poems in calligraphy. The poems, songs, and calligraphy are not edited or drafted but written, painted, or composed in one sitting.

Everything is one and countless things are one. I am reborn in the True world and live.

One who has accomplished is a complete person. One who is born in the Original Foundation is an accomplished complete person.

Existence is to exist in the Original Foundation and is one that lives.

Allowing what does not exist to exist is Truth. If it does not exist in the world, then it does not exist.

Poems of Enlightenment Written in Beautiful Calligraphy

Woo Myung began to write calligraphy in 1996, the year Subtraction Meditation began. He has produced more than 40,000 pieces of calligraphic writings since that time. He often writes numerous pieces in a session, with the hope that they will help people awaken from their dreaming. They are not first composed as poetry, to be later written in calligraphic writing, but simultaneously composed and written down; the poetry forming as the brush moves across the paper.
His calligraphy has the fluidity of water but is dynamic at the same time. Calligraphy experts and enthusiasts have praised his works as “possessing an inimitable uniqueness which does not belong to any existing school of work.” A portion of his work can be seen hanging in the walls of centers world-wide.
