From a young age, I struggled to find the answers to what I think of are life's fundamental questions: Who am I? and Why am I alive? I found those answers for myself after much study and circumspection, culminating in strict fasting and meditation on top of Moak Mountain in South Korea more than 30 years ago.

What I discovered opened up a new life and a new world for me. Since then, I've sought to find ways to help others answer those questions for themselves, and live healthier, happier, and more fulfilling lives as a result. All of my work is focused on developing methods for this and sharing them with as many people as possible. I believe when enough people know their true nature and purpose and are empowered to live by it, the world wil

How to Have True Peace of Mind

We train ourselves to gain peace of mind. Some people mistakenly believe that this peace of mind is a state from which all worries have vanished. However, troubles never cease as long as you’re living life as a human being. True peace of mind comes from an attitude of accepting those troubles, not a state from which all worries have disappeared.

Living people worry anyway, and it’s proof that t

“From The Twelve Enlightenments

Observe your own body. It breathes. You breathe when you are asleep, when you are no longer conscious of your own ideas of self-identity. Who, then, is breathing? The collection of information that you mistakenly think it’s you is not the main protagonist in this drama called the breath. In fact, you are not breathing; breath is naturally happening to you. You can purposely end your own life, but you cannot purposely keep your own life going. The expression, “My life” is actually an oxymoron, a result of ignorance and mistaken assumption. You don’t posses life; life expresses itself through you. Your body is a flower that life let bloom, a phenomenon created by life.”
Ilchi Lee

“I existed before I received this body. I am the external and fundamental life energy of the universe.”
Ilchi Lee, The Call of Sedona: Journey of the Heart

“To see truth as truth, we don't need a lot of study. It's not complicated. What we need is pure observation. An open mind and fresh eyes will serve us well.”
Ilchi Lee, Change: Realizing Your Greatest Potential
