Hardcover / 210 pages

The poetry of Woo Myung, who tells us, “The man is the Truth and the Universe; all things are one.” As the beautiful verses are read and savored, it is possible to naturally enlighten to the fact that once one cleanses his minds and escapes from his conceptions and habits, and only then, is it possible to live with wisdom in a world of oneness and heaven.
Woo Myung’s writings show what kind of influence poetry can have on readers when it is written from a place of pure consciousness. With each word, the deep and clear true mind seeps in, leaving only the pure essence of the Truth behind after the reading is done. While there is no doctrine to the poetry persuading readers to the writer’s own point of view, they do have a clear topic. Like his consciousness, life and teachings, the motivation behind his poetry is love, making his verses a comfort and a joy to read.
