In the book, Jung Myung Seok was described as a person who has gained a deep understanding of the mysterious and profound wonders and creations of God in the world. He realized God’s principle of creation; the nature of creation is the same as the nature of human beings. In the same vein, God created human beings in His image and likeness – the nature of human beings is the same as the nature of God. In this way, he provided a clear and easy way to understand the connection between Heaven and Earth, a human being’s physical and spiritual side.

Ten of his poems were included in this book, such as  ‘Narrow Mind,’ ‘Life,’ ‘Our Love,’ ‘Movement of the Cloud,’ ‘Never-changing Heart,’ and ‘Hope’. His poem ‘Hope’ reflects the sentiments that true hope can only be gained when one undergoes the training of tribulations and hardships. His definition of true hope exactly displays the profound meaning of the truth of life and triggers to the reader to ponder over what has been written.
