Having Faith to Fate

Here are my notes from Hyo Jin nim's speech Sunday 18 November 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: Joe Kinney

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

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

Good morning. (Good morning)

Today's topic is having faith to fate.

Do you believe in fate?

According to the dictionary, I guess, it means a prophetic declaration, or something like that.

Do you have some kind of inspired thing about yourself that you're willing to die for?

Do you have it? (No answer)

Then you have no fate, because that's the definition; that's the standard.

We try to understand who we are. We try to understand our limitations because that's important; that's when we can grow.

Truly knowing your limitations makes the expansion that you're willing to make, make sense in the end; make something in the end; make something substantial in the end.

Otherwise it's just foolish nonsense; it's just a dream.

A lot of people end up in jail because they had foolish dreams. I see many people in jail because they really never clearly understood who they were, their limitations. That's why they ended up in jail.
