Ilchi points to the truth
In Korean, the term Ilchi has a complex set of connotations and meanings, and understanding their precise usage may help individuals understand the ways in which certain types of teachings can direct their search for fulfillment in life and spiritual growth.
The first part of the term, Il, means “the one,” “the truth” or “the way.” The second part, Chi, means “to point.” Therefore, the world literally means “one who points to the way or truth.” This phrase has a powerful meaning when it comes to certain teachings.
Ilchi Lee adopted it as his first name to tell people that he does not believe he is privy to any secret knowledge. He is not delivering divine revelation. Instead, he is simply here to remind individuals of things that they are likely already well aware of.
His teachings are generally not very complicated. But they involved a focus on life principles that many people forget about during the course of their everyday existence. Things like charity, peace, mental clarity and elimination of stress form the corner stones of Lee’s advice.
It is nothing new for someone to point out the importance of these things. However, people often need reminders.
