Everyone gives thought to what would be the best way to live a good life. But everybody knows the right way to live. Everyone knows that, rather than being someone who is egotistical or intolerant, it’s better to live with an open heart as you practice Hongik, providing “wide benefit” as you serve the good of all. Everyone also knows that harmony and unity are more desirable than division or conflict. Simply put, everyone wants to love and be loved.
Rather than asking, “How can I live the right way?” what about asking, “What kind of life do I want to live?” I can’t think of a better way than to hold this question in your mind without losing it for a single moment, choosing the right life, and enacting your choice with honesty and diligence. You have to keep asking yourself these questions. How do you want to live your life?
In order to become the master of your life, you need to find your own answer to how you will live. Instead of living according to other people’s ideas or other people’s answers to your questions, ask your questions to yourself and make your own decisions. Give your best to the choices you have made, and you will find the way to become the master of your life.
