Despite the ease of the meditation method, it was not easy for people to understand the principle of the method. While many people wanted to enjoy the fruits of enlightenment, their egos were strong and they did not want to discard.
Woo Myung had to first make people understand that the minds they had inside them were illusions; that the world they saw when trapped within their mind worlds was a false one; and that in order to achieve Truth and have the true mind, all of one’s human false mind must be discarded. When they began to attain enlightenment, Woo Myung was more overjoyed than they themselves, “It is impossible to describe the joy of countless people attaining enlightenment. I felt more joy when other people were enlightened than I had felt with my own enlightenment.”
In order to spread Truth to the wider world, his annual seminar tours around the world began. From the U.S. to Europe, through Africa, Asia, Oceania, and South America, he travelled relentlessly, sometimes crossing two national borders in one day.
“There is nothing more important or urgent than the business of becoming of Truth. There is nothing else that must be done in this human life of limited time, but my mind is hurried because the world is wide.” – Woo Myung
