Dear SuHaeng Ja,
I read somewhere that Ilchi Lee says weakness is where you grow your strength. I'm all for positive thinking, but I'm not sure I agree. Does that mean I should ignore my bum knees and lower back pain and just keep chugging along?
What I am about to say applies not only to you, but to me and anyone who reads this: Everything we see, hear or feel is strongly affected by your beliefs and thinking.
Whatever you read about what Ilchi Lee said has been filtered by your concerns about your health and ability. From an energy perspective, everything is connected. So, Ilchi Lee is offering that the aspects of you that you consider weaknesses, present opportunities for you to recognize your strength.
You do not need to ignore your health challenges, or money challenges or family issues. Just recognize that the circumstances can change. And if you can experience a change here, then you will feel much stronger and able to make many more changes for the better.
In a brief meditation, please take the time to address your weakness from another perspective. Take a deep breath and, whatever it is, welcome it into your life with this statement:
"Thank you for presenting me with this opportunity to recognize my strength."
