Here are my notes from Hyo Jin nim's speech Sunday 28 October 2007. My ability to convey what was actually said is limited. These, at most, convey some sense of what Hyo Jin nim said and are not a verbatim record. To see projects that Hyo Jin nim is working on log on to: definingmoment.tv Joe Kinney



Rev. Andrew Compton is the MC. All welcome Hyo Jin nim and offer a standing bow.

Hyo Jin nim bows to the audience as he approaches the stage.


Good morning (Good morning)


Is everything okay with you? (Yes)


Hey, long time no see; good to see you. (Addressing one brother)


Do you have hope? (Yes)


Hope in you? (Laughs) Hope in humanity? Hope in the future?


I guess hope means something that's going to be better. Right? For all of us; right, all of us; not just me. Because hope has a greater range than just self awareness or self existence. Okay so..


There are a lot of doomsday sayers you know, apocalyptic stuff that they propound on to a religious community based on revelations and stuff. It's based on a dream-state kind of babbling.

Because what you see is what you get. That's what you see.


When we can see it, we can change it. That's the nature of mankind. That separates us from any other creations in creation. If we can recognize something, in absolute, we can change it because we have that control.


That is the greatest blessing. We have that control of that absolute as if we are a Divine creator. So when it's absolutely, undeniably obvious and in-your-face, everybody wants to be good; not everybody wants to be bad.


"Original Mind". Put those principle words aside. People want to be good in the end. How can you deny yourself the change, the opportunity, the better, that you can have when you know that this kind of stuff is in your face?
