Hyo Jin Moon May 6, 2007 7:00 am Belvedere, Tarrytown, NY

Here are my notes from Hyo Jin nim's speech Sunday 06 May 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. Hyo Jin nim's website is: To see two of the projects that Hyo Jin nim is working on log on to: and Joe Kinney

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

Rev Michael Jenkins and Rev Bruce Grodner are in attendance.

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

Good morning. (Good morning)

Does everybody want to be prosperous?


Do you want to be prosperous? (Yes)

In what way? (Laughter)

Money? Money way?

I'll cut right to the chase.

To me prosperity is a perception, a perception of how ones self thinks of ones self in contentment.

So when are you satisfied? Because prosperity equals satisfaction.

That varies. How do YOU see prosperity? Because it's a perception of how ones self thinks about ones self in contentment.

If you see today, like televangelists, people that are doing very well; they put on a great show. They package them selves very well and it's an event when you go there.

And an event has, I guess, a certain kind of appeal or expectation. For instance like on a commercial level, you create an event to sell your product.
