After finishing my trip to NYC

The travel to New York city from 14th of September to 30th of September was short but thick, just as my life motto is. The reality that I could not help quitting my trip in about two weeks was quite embarrassing and ended up leaving severe damage to me. However, I try to console myself in my failure with the fact that what I gained from the travel was much more than what I lost.
It was physically hard to meet people at Union Square but it was really great. Ten days at Union Square felt like just one moment. Among those who showed their interest in the subject of life, 90% was religious, 9.5% was mentally ill, and 0.5% was purely interested. The religious people spoke ill of me, the sick people made friends with me, and the rest took my mind and my business card.
I cannot write down here the reason why I had to quit my journey earlier than planned because I haven’t yet digested it fully. The one obvious thing is that I could enlighten myself about what has been vague to me so far and that it will make me much stronger.

At Union Square in New York - Money

 It's Saturday, so many people enjoy it. Three men on a bike hike are resting next to us. One of them glances up and comes to talk.
 "What are you doing?"
 "I'm talking with people about things in reality."
 "Money is the most important thing to me."
 "Yes, money is important. But money shouldn't be the purpose of life ..."
 "No, money is the purpose of life for me. Every morning I pray for money."
 Then he goes back to where he was.
 Money is important in life. The question is not how much money you make and how rich you live. How to make and spend money is the key. Earning money diligently and honestly, and spending it frugally in the right place is the way to protect and develop yourself.

A conversation with a Jew on 16th of September at Union Square in NYC

 This is a conversation with a Jew I met at Union Square in New York.
 "Have you ever met a Jew?"
 "I think so."

 "Jews are special people who have close relationship with God."
 "What does it mean to be special?"
 "In the past, Jews have suffered from millions of deaths, but they are still alive and strong."
 "Oh, really? However, Korea has historically been invaded many times and as many people as Jews have died. What is the difference between Jews and Koreans?"
 "Well... do you know why Korea was invaded so much?"

 "First of all, that's not the answer to my question. And the reasons for the many invasions were different from each other. How can I answer only one cause with so many different causes?"
 "It's because of God."
 "Yes? Yes. The answer to everything which people who believe in God like you give is God. People like you set the answer and put all the questions into the answer. If questions are different, the answers should be different, but your answer is always God. I'm going to be here for three months, so think about this matter and come back any time."

The Absolute Egoism

Self-completion is based on absolute selfishness. And mysteriously this absolute egoism can only be completed by absolute altruism.
The most precious thing to me is myself. Because if I don't exist, it means nothing. It is absolute selfishness to seek for the sake of my most precious self.
This absolute egotism for the sake of myself can only be realized by my actions that benefit others, that is, that have good consequences for others. In other words, absolute egoism for myself can be achieved through absolute altruism, which aims to benefit others best.

Good Words

Certain words, although they seem great, plausible, or beautiful, cannot be good words. Whether the words are confirmed in reality should be the criterion of whether they are good words or not.
Words must represent what exists (objects or facts which exist) as it is. Vain words that are not based on what exists, though they may seem plausible or beautiful, make spirits unclear and so ruin people.

Be on the alert.

Be wary.
Be wary of yourself who always loses to small bad habits.
Be wary of yourself kneeling to indolence.
Be wary of the ignorance that you know something.
Be wary of forgetting your truth, driven by a busy life.
Be wary of spending every single moment in your precious in vain.
Be wary of the desires of the flesh.

Be wary of the satisfaction you think is enough.

The difference between conviction and truth

How much does your confidence in people and things of the world match their truth (fact as it is)?

Who do you learn from?

 If learners learn what exists from the one who can see things of the world and practice it , they will also be able to see what exists. But even if they learn from the one, they cannot see what exists if they do not learn it properly or practice it properly. What is more, what if they learn from those who cannot see things of world?

A seeker after truth

 A seeker after truth is the one who changes oneself for the better through attaining enlightenment by doubting and confirming about the truth of what exists in the world and conveying it to people. To this end, a seeker should be vigilant about whether or not the life is swayed by five desires(desire for fame, money, sex, meat, and alcohol) and affection.
 Truth is bitter and painful to humanity. The way of a seeker who has to convey truth is lonely, arduous, and difficult. This is especially true of the life without ‘道伴’(a friend who walks on the same way).
