<수련이란 태도를 닦아나가는 것>

 

태도에는 말투말씨표정몸가짐행동  모든 언행이 포함됩니다 인간의 모든 것이  드러나는 총체적인 작품이 태도라   있습니다.

수련이란 태도를 닦아나가는 것입니다변하고자 하는 것이 수련인데  변화의 대상은 결국 태도인 것입니다제가 자꾸 태도를 고치는  주안점을 두는 것은 그래서입니다태도를  고치면 아무것도  고치기 때문입니다.

가치와 태도는 불일치할  있습니다내가 이것이 옳다고 믿는다고 해서 태도가 항상 그렇게 나오지는 않습니다생각은 이런데 행동은 다르게 나올  있는 것입니다도박에 중독된 분들이 입으로는 하지 말아야지 하는데 손은 어느새 도박을 하고 있지 않습니까손이 길들여져서 자기 의사를 갖게  것입니다

자신이  때나 남들이  때나 나무랄  없는 태도를 갖춘다면  닦인 사람일 것입니다불쑥불쑥 모난 부분이 나온다는 것은 아직  갈고 닦아야 한다는 얘기이지요너무 내세우는 사람은 다소곳한 면을 길러야 하고 너무 주눅이 들어 있는 사람은 당당한 면을 길러야 합니다

수련하시는 분들은 누가 봐도 아름다움으로 드러나야 합니다자신을 표현하는 안팎의 모든 것들을 갈고 닦아서 아름다움이 느껴져야 합니다아름다운 모습을 보면 기쁘지 않습니까그렇게 자신도 기쁘고 상대방도 기쁘게 태도를 닦아나가는 것이 수련입니다

마음을 움직이는 것은 다름 아닌 태도입니다어떤 사람이 지식이 많다 해서 감동 받지는 않습니다많이 아는구나 하고 감탄은 할지언정 감동은  받습니다맑은 느낌공손한 몸가짐따뜻한 미소중단을 움직이는 것은 이런 감성적인 부분입니다맑음밝음따뜻함정성스러움…. 태도가 아름다운 사람은 바라보는 이에게 아름다움을 느끼게 합니다

Practice is to Cultivate Your Attitude

 

Your attitudes include all your words and actions: your way of speaking, accents, facial expressions, conduct, behaviours and so on. A human's attitude can be called a comprehensive piece of work that reveals everything about the person.

Practice is to cultivate your attitude. You do practice to change yourself, and the object to change is your attitude in the end. That is why I put emphasis on changing attitude. If you do not change your attitude, you can change nothing.

It is possible that your value system and attitude do not agree with each other. Although you believe something is right, you do not always conduct such an attitude. You can think this way but act that way. Those who are addicted to gambling say that they will stop gambling, but their hands are already on gambling, aren't they? Their hands have been tamed and came to have their own intentions.   

If you have an attitude that is seen as flawless by others as well as yourself, you will be a cultivated person. If you have angular parts sticking out in bumps, it shows that you need to cultivate yourself more.  Those who brag too much need to grow aspects of humility and those who have too low self-esteem need to grow aspects of boldness.  

Trainees who do practice should be presented as beauty to whoever looks at them. You should polish and refine everything inside and outside of you, which expresses you so that others should feel the beauty. Aren’t you pleased when you see beautiful looks? It is practice that you proceed in cultivating your attitude to make others as well as yourself happy.

What moves the mind is none other than the attitude. You are not moved just because someone has lots of knowledge. You may admire his knowledge, but you are not touched. What touches your middle danjeon are emotional sides such as a sense of purity, polite manners and a warm smile. Purity, brightness, warmth, sincerity…. One with beautiful attitudes makes others who look at him/her feel the beauty.
