Teachings of a Woo Master. "When
I was in my late thirties, I began to think deeply about my life and
the kind of person I had become. I knew I had a good life, yet I felt
as if I were riding on an emotional roller coaster. Some days, I felt
happy, creative, and optimistic. Other days, I fell into self-doubt,
self-criticism, and sometimes the darkness of despair. . . .I longed
to change, because I knew there had to be a better way to live. We all
have moments like this when we're ripe for change. Our inner struggles
and emotional pain may have reached a point where necessity requires
it or, even when life is going well, we may feel a compelling urge to
create something better."
"Sometimes, circumstances present
opportunities for change that are so obvious and compelling, we can't
pass them up. For example, we may accidently meet someone who, with
ease and gentleness, shows us that there is a better way to live, then
reveals how to do it. This is a story of such a time, when fate led
me to an old man, a gardener, who became my teacher and friend. In the
short time of three months, he taught me about the sources of my personal
suffering and how to cultivate change in myself to eventually bloom
as a person. He told me, 'We were born to bloom'."
