Korean phrase inspires balance
There is a Korean expression that goes Chun-ji-in, which essentially means Heaven, Earth and Human. It is intended to remind individuals of their place in the Universe and to help them channel their life energy to get the most meaning they possibly can out of their existence.
The reference to Heaven is intended to inspire individuals to have a large, open heart. The heavens above are empty and accepting of all things. They are also able to detach themselves the smaller things that may only bring worry and trouble.
By reflecting on Earth, students can learn what it means to be stable and supportive of others. The Earth gives birth and provides sustenance to all things in creation. When people incorporate these feelings into their daily lives, they may become less reactionary and more reflective.
The final piece of the phrase is Human. This is meant to remind individuals that they are spiritual beings and that their physical frame only serves to connect them to the larger soul of humanity.
Ilchi Lee says that Chung-ji-in can help those who are seeking spiritual growth to balance their mind-body-spirit connection, which can lead to positivity and happiness.
