Q. The image of the United States is that it is the land of liberty, the land of hope for so many from all over the world. They came to America dreaming of the American dream. However, America’s freedom seems to be only for the Puritan in the past. Currently America looks like a land which doesn’t have any freedom, dreams or hope. Thereby being a nation, which has various kinds of societal issues such as racial discrimination and many gun accidents. What should the United States do in order to be the authentic nation of freedom and hope?

A. When I speak this I would be struck by a stone against my interpretation. This is correct the United States is a free country.

This is correct the United States is a free country.

The concept of freedom changes little by little according to the conditions. Was the law so strong at the beginning? The laws at the beginning were not that strong. People came to this country in the past because this had been the country of freedom. It is natural that the living circumstances change with the times. Since their arrival, many people have committed many illegal activities with expedients, in which the government needed to establish stricter laws. The United States exists not only for the Puritans but for all people. Nonetheless, because the people who immigrated into this country became greedy and made their (ethnic) groups by insisting their way of life, the government began imposing sanctions against them. We should think carefully about it.

In any social environment, only when you have incorrectly approached or handled, you become difficult because society is always so existed.

Not only in the United States but in any other country in the world, that you are getting in trouble means you must be doing something wrong. Who is to blame for it? You should open up and manage the world while finding out your faults and straightening yourself. People have encountered many difficulties and have denied their faults. Then, why are you living there? Who said that you should live there? If you have decided to immigrate into this country, you should have researched the basic information about this country before moving here. When you felt confident after researching, then you could have decided to immigrate, and even when you live here, you should also develop yourself by learning about society. If you would have grown in a way as if surfing on waves, why would you then face difficulties? In any social environment, only when you have incorrectly approached or handled, you become difficult because society is always so existed.

Humans existed in a given situation and should manage their lives from this point by putting in an effort.

For example, even just a few decades ago, Korea was one of the poorest countries in the world right after The Korean War. At that time the analog generation was born. Would you blame to be born in Korea? Then you shouldn’t have been born in Korea. We just became born in Korea, which was the poorest county in the world and yet would you still blame Korea? Humans always existed in a given situation and should manage their lives from this point by putting in an effort. If you don’t do your best and always blame others, your life will become harder.

If you realize that you are improperly living and try to correct it, your life will become better.

As the road in life is always open today, “how to live” is open also in America. However, since you didn’t learn this and blamed and always insulted other, your life is falling into difficulty. How do you expect your life get better if you continue to live wrong way in life? If you realize that you are improperly living and try to correct it, your life will become better. If you continuously blame others, this shows that now you are not putting in an effort and predicts that tomorrow you would get harder. If tomorrow you still complain then you would keep getting worse the day after tomorrow.

Stop blaming others and do your best today then you would become better tomorrow.

Stop blaming others and do your best today then you would become better tomorrow. If you try to make an effort for at least one hundred days, the little difficulties can be solved. Even the great difficulties can be solved if you try to do your best for three years. Do you expect your problems to be resolved only by blaming others for three years? How might the intellectuals think that there is such a law?

If you are in difficulty you should straighten your life because you are now facing the world incorrectly.

If you are in difficulty you should straighten your life because you are now facing the world incorrectly. People are seized with a serious illness so they should straighten up. If you are hit by someone then you need to reflect on yourself, but if you just insult the person who has hit you then you will be hit twice. If you still stand against that person and blame the outside world then you will get hit by a car. It would be much stronger than being hit twice. What’s wrong with your life?

Change your way of thinking. Put an effort in for one hundred days.

Change your way of thinking and then your life will be changed. Basically, you need one hundred days to change your way of thinking. Put an effort in for one hundred days and this is the prayer of one hundred days, the study of one hundred days, and the training of one hundred days. We should change anything wrong, otherwise, there is no other way. You have asked me but I don’t know such a way that you can correct your wrong life without your effort. I am a person who can only teach you to find the right way to correct your life. I just teach you that if you don’t do your best today, you become difficult tomorrow. Understand?
