REVEREND SUN MYUNG MOON
THE ORIGINAL BASE
OF COSMIC COMPLETION
December 16, 1979
Translator-Bo Hi Pak
We think individual perfection and national problems are big topics, but
cosmic completion is a very big topic! Yet this is the goal of all mankind,
and God as well has been looking forward to it. Why do all these cosmic
entities exist? Once in a while both men and women think about all these
things and about why they are here. God must sometimes think about why He
created all of this. These are all created for some purpose, so through
which route can we accomplish this goal?
God is in action, not standing still. He is living, so His activity
is continuous. Men and women keep moving, and the nation and world are
also in motion. We cannot go blindly in a certain direction. If God is
moving in a certain way then He must have some goal and purpose. Why then
would man move toward God? If God is subject and His creation is object,
could their goal and purpose be different? The overall purpose is eternal
and unchanging. Whether God is moving to the East or West, He has to be
moving toward that purpose.
When kids get out of school for vacation they scatter in many different
directions, but when school opens in the fall they have to come back again.
The school brings them back in order to move them in a certain direction.
The members of a family can be scattered around the world doing many different
things, yet they all think of themselves as part of one family. The hostages
in Iran have one desire that is unchanging-that is to go back home.
God has the freedom to maneuver throughout the entire universe, but He
is anchored by one thing He always returns to. Is that thing a mountain
somewhere, or a beautiful resort area? A place where great music is played,
or some disco hall? It is definitely not a place where there are squabbles
and fighting. His base is a place where harmony and joy are abundant.
Where is there such a place? Where is the center and anchor of such words as
peace, joy and freedom? If they are anchored in True Parents, what are they?
They are centered upon love, without which nothing remains.
If there is a big bag of love somewhere, when God enters it He will
be intoxicated with joy. All His billions of cells would be melted by the
experience. Even if He was very upset and irate, once He entered the bag of
love He would be completely melted and as happy as a spring day. If you give
God a shot of love, it would be like drugging Him with opium-everything else
just melts away. When God begins to laugh then the entire cosmos will shake.
When God says, "Mmmm, good," the entire universe will buzz.
The same thing can happen in a home. If the father is filled with love
then the mother can be happy and the children will be relaxed. But if the
father is very stern and upset, the mother and children will be on edge and
a little scared. On the other hand, if the mother is filled with true love
then the father will be affected because it is contagious, and the children
will be melted by that love. The same thing can be said about the children-if
they are filled with true love then it will overflow and even their parents
can be melted by it.
If there is a gigantic super-bottle filled with the sweet honey of love
and someone could stick the top of the bottle in his mouth, would he want
to release it? He wouldn't care about anything else except holding onto
that bottle. Would he worry about falling down from the top? He wouldn't
even think about how it could be made better in some other way, but would just
hang on to it, showing his happiness with all kinds of gestures and motions.
Perched way up on top of the bottle he would be in a dangerous place, but
he would hardly care.
Everyone is making an effort and pursuing a certain direction to get to
that bottle. If everyone had a pipeline to that bottle of love, would anyone
be unhappy? Everyone would concentrate on getting that line in their mouth
and sucking very hard to taste the love. Because it would be coming to them
over a long distance through a narrow pipe, people would start cutting off
sections of pipe, trying to get closer and closer to the source so they could
get more love. The closer they get to the origin, the wider the diameter
of the pipe and the more love they can get. Some people might be content
to settle down once they cut off half of the pipe, but those who truly know
the value and the exquisite taste of love would keep cutting the pipe off
until they get right to the bottle. The pipe is not easy to cut, however;
it is tougher to cut the pipe than to do MFT work.
It is man's innate nature to want to pursue something great and noble, and
he makes a constant effort to get nearer to his origin. In this super-bottle
you can find all the things men ultimately desire-joy and harmony and
peace-because it contains love. In love you can find everything. How much
would you pay for that? Would you pay even with one eye? or both eyes?
Could you give up everything except your mouth? Could you swap the whole
American continent, or even the whole world for that love?
If God is omnipotent then could He only make one bottle of love, or could
He make millions? If several champions managed to cut through all the pipe
and eventually arrived at the very top, would God decide He had better make
one bottle for each person? If you had a whole bottle for yourself, what else
would you need? There is no way you could put it down; your mouth would stick
to it instead if you tried to pull the bottle out. Recently in Gloucester
I saw a couple in love sitting together, and that man and woman never moved
for ten minutes. If even in the secular world men and women could be that
intoxicated by love, how much more would they be enthralled with true love?
Once true love comes to you, nothing else matters at all. If God had
a bottle would He allow anyone to tell Him to put it aside? Do you agree
that love has that power? Men are pursuing true love, and women are after
true love, and the whole world and the universe want true love. Are there
any exceptions? Everyone has different opinions, but on this subject the
vote is unanimous. No one is dozing this morning. If everyone is wide awake
when they only hear about true love, what if you had a little smell of it?
Your eyes would pop out! And if you actually tasted it what would happen?
The atmosphere of spirit world is made of love, and you breathe that air
all day long. Every single cell breathes love. True love is almighty, and
with it nothing is impossible. If your husband is ugly, you might wonder how
you could feel true love from him, but in spirit world he would be the most
handsome, attractive man you have ever seen if he has true love. You see
your face in the mirror every day, but do you remember what it looks like?
Sometimes when you see a picture of yourself or look in the mirror you think
you are pretty attractive, while at other times you disagree. But when you
look with the eyes of love you see nothing but beauty.
When you look at something too close up you can't see it very well.
You can't see your eyelashes very well, for instance. To really evaluate
something you need some distance. If you look too closely at yourself,
you have no way to know yourself. But when your mind and body are united,
you are not seeing your physical body; you are seeing your spiritual state
when you look at yourself. Recently I spoke with a woman who came to see me.
Initially she looked ugly, but as we spoke, her face was changing, and after
several hours she looked very beautiful.
You learn in Divine Principle that we grow through stages. There is
no ugliness in the perfection stage, and every divine spirit is a shining
beauty. You have a body and a mind. Everything in the cosmos connects
with that body and mind. Spirit world contacts your mind and the physical
world contacts your body, and a vertical line is formed in the center.
In the Orient there is a saying that a righteous person has a straight mind.
It means that a person has a central vertical line where mind and body meet.
If such a person commits himself to something then he will fulfill it.
Thought and action meet at that one line.
There are many people who say one thing and do another, moving in a zig
zag fashion. But if your body comes to join your mind, they form a straight
line. Your state of mind produces thoughts, and then your words and deeds
should come in a straight line with them. When mind and body are united,
they form a straight line. That is the kind of person we want to become.
The spirit and physical worlds come together through you, and you should
want to meet them in a straight line. Many people resent it when the spirit
world tries to meet the physical world through them, so they leave only a
very narrow hole open. If your body is closed then your mind is also closed
and there is not much room for spirit world to come in.
The process of education is always trying to open wide the door of
the mind, and once your mind is wide open then your actions will be wide.
Racial discrimination means simply that blacks have a narrow mind toward
whites, and vice versa. Education is needed to open their minds to convince
them that we are all one brotherhood. Is the best way to persuade someone
to open his mind to warn him he will get cold water thrown on him? Or would
you tell him that he would be filled with love? He would open the door
wide to love. After that no door would even be needed because it would be
standing open all day anyway.
Once the door is open, your physical actions will be wide also, and
once your door is open wide enough no one can close it. Then that person
is filled with love. This is how the Kingdom of Heaven i~ "^~sible.
The fall of man closed the door of man's mind, and thus the body was also shut.
What power could open such a tightly closed door? Certainly not money or
power. Oriental women are very protective of themselves, covering themselves
entirely with long dresses, and in some countries even using veils to cover
their faces. But when love comes they open everything.
No one would slam the door on the prince of love, but would beg him to
enter. Would you show him right away to the bathroom, or show him to the
best chair in the house? Perhaps you would not be sure even then that he
would stay, so you would want to lock him up. Where would you lock him up?
In your heart. The problem is whether your mind is big enough to lock in
true love so it won't escape.
Would you gave extra room in your mind even if you put the whole
super-bottle of love into it? How would you use such a great mind-for
raising money, or to study law, to pursue a career? You would want to
invest it for the sake of love. There is no limit to what your mind
could do. Does the President of the United States have the biggest mind?
How does it compare to a Moonie's mind? Only if you are centered upon love
can you say your mind is bigger, only if you love all five colors of skin
and the whole world. There is no limit to how big we can make our minds.
A mind can wrap up God and the whole universe and still have room left over.
You want to have contact with bigger minds and bigger things, don't you?
Where can we find the original base for cosmic completion? Particularly
in these few weeks before Christmas you are thinking about what you want to
give people, so you think of this superbottle of love. In order to secure
that bottle you need to be willing to go any route necessary, including
MFT, where you get so tired. When you feel so tired that you don't want
to go on any more, think of the super-bottle. You must think you won't
quit until you can grab hold of the top of that bottle. Every day you are
chopping some more off the pipeline, and you have some intuitive idea how
much more remains. If you have been a Moonie for twenty or thirty years but
you don't know how to make the pipeline shorter, you are wasting your time.
You have to know how to get closer. Your attitude must be, "Let the
people curse me and criticize; I don't care because I am too busy cutting
away at the pipeline."
When true love is in the center then even God is circling around because
His goal is true love. Man's life is also rotating around true love.
Women as well. I want to make a bigger super-bottle for women. A baby is
centered on true love. What about birds? Why do birds sing? Male and female
birds are talking about love when they sing. Are there only male insects?
Because there are male and female insects then even in the insect world
there is true love. On the atomic level there are electrons and protons,
and they rotate around in give and take. Even on that level there is a
certain kind of love.
All these loves can be linked together. What kind of thread connects
them? Only true love. Any arrow except that of true love would hurt you,
but when true love penetrates you, you love it. Doesn't this apply only to
white people? A mother longs to have the love of her sons and daughters.
She would want to be hit by the arrow of her children's love and by the love
of her husband and the love of God. A husband wants the love of his children,
his wife and God. Then he feels fulfilled. The world of the animals follows
the same principle. In love they multiply, generation after generation.
God also wants to be with father, mother and children. Wherever father
goes, the mother and children want to go. Wherever the children go, the
parents want to accompany them. Everyone wants to be penetrated by the love
of God, their spouse and children.
This is why the Unification Church ideology revolves around the heavenly
four position foundation. Its completion brings the fulfillment of all.
In that framework you meet everyone-husband, wife, children and God. No one
argues there over whose love is better or worse. There is total harmony even
without words being spoken. Give and take is automatic there, not conscious.
This is where the universe draws its power. People sometimes debate who
started the movement of the universe. but here we see that when love unites,
action automatically begins. The power of true love is the power to start
the universe moving.
When a husband and wife are in love they don't have to plan how
they will love each other; it is automatic. When there is true love,
then harmony is automatic. The action of true love heads toward eternity;
it is not temporary. Thus, we can conclude that God is the origin of true
love, and so He is eternal and always in action. His existence is automatic.
With true love God can be self-existing, selfperpetuating and self-motivating.
When true love is activated, there is always harmony, and they don't stand
still to hold each other but turn round and round. The globe is turning, and
all the planets revolve. Could money cause them to turn? Power or knowledge?
No, only true love could do it.
True love is self-existing and self-perpetuating. Our goal is that
very love. With love in your heart you have energy inside and you keep
moving. You want to do something about it because you cannot stand still.
The Unification Church has been persecuted and ridiculed but we never lose
energy because we have unlocked this secret. We have the power of love.
I have been opposed my whole life, yet I never get tired. I am self-motivating
and always in motion. If I am pursuing money or power then there is a limit,
but there is no end to true love.
The universe and God are moving with me wherever I go in my pursuit of
true love, as well as all nations. Based on this principle, if I am moving
toward this goal then all mankind also have to be moving with me; that has
to be their goal also.
True love alone is self-generating. If you try to force two chemical
elements together, will they obey? When their natural subject-object
relationship is established then you don't even have to tell them to unite;
it is automatic. God is eternal because He has a plus element and minus
element which always have give and take. That is the most perfect principle
we have. We are talking about God's dual essentialities, and it is a
The universe always mandates that you must unite mind and body, and then
you will be your true self. If your mind and body are united then you can
stand before the whole universe with dignity and pride. Do your two eyes
see two images? No, they form one image because they are united. Your nose
has two openings yet you don't breathe two different ways. Your mouth has
an upper lip and lower lip which work harmoniously. Imagine what it would
be like if they worked in separate directions!
You have two arms so your two hands can work together and come together to
pray. Each time you take a step you are making a four position foundation on
the ground because two components come together to make a line. Is the ideal
for plus and minus to make a zig zag or a straight line? Would you prefer a
short or long line? Usually you want something to happen in the shortest time,
and the shortest distance in horizontal time and space is vertical. The more
intense your give and take, the greater the tendency to become vertical.
Who was the closest to Adam? After God, who was closest, closer even
than Eve? Adam's own self was closest. The important question is how close
you are with God. How distant you are is what concerns you. God is the
highest and you are low, yet the two are linked. If you are united with God
then you are as tall as He is and as noble. Your physical position doesn't
make any difference. It is man's built-in nature to want to be higher than
everyone else. If you want to be the highest then you have to stand right
in the center, with the absolute conviction that you and God are one.
Then you need a horizontal relationship, and the closest one is your
mate. How can you make your vertical relationship wider? Through love in a
horizontal relationship, specifically, with your mate. Once a man becomes
one with God and a woman becomes one with God, then they have a right to
search horizontally. Until the age of 21 you are busy uniting with God.
When you are confident you are one with God, you can search for your mate
and nothing can break that relationship. Then your central, vertical line
becomes thicker because you are no longer only one. Then your area of
When children come then your territory and realm of activity become
even wider. You start out tall but then get wider and wider. How wide do
you want to be? Wide enough to become a round sphere. After restoration
of the family you move on to restoration of the tribe, clan, nation, world
and universe, and ultimately you become completely round. What is the
center, the nucleus of it all? That is true love between husband and wife.
People have never known this.
As a man you are responsible, not just for yourself as an individual,
but for half of the universe. Each woman is responsible for the other half
of the universe. A man is half of God. A woman is the other half of God.
If they are pulling each other with true love then they will meet in the
center, and the result will be something like the dramatic special effects
in the movies. When true love meets true love would the outcome be brighter
or dimmer than lightning? Did you ever imagine it would be brighter than
lightning and louder than thunder?
How can you imagine it? You have never come near to true love. The only
love you have known is far from true love, and only genuine love can generate
that power. If Adam and Eve had come together in true God-centered love,
the entire universe would have felt the explosion. That should have been
the greatest event in the universe, bringing the greatest light and the
greatest laughter, dance and music. It would have been the most colorful,
dramatic event in the universe.
When a male and female dove are in love they sing when they meet. Do you
know why a dove is the symbol of peace? I think that among all the animals
the doves express their love most beautifully in sound. For the sake of
true love you can cry so much that your eyes ache and throb. Any event that
happens because of love is good. True love is sacred and holy, but love in the
world today is dirty and impure. The greatest thing in the universe has been
stomped into the ground and made filthy. We have to rebuild and purify love.
When you talk about the highest possible holiness are you talking about
one or two qualities? Can you have pure love with more than one person?
Many of you are now engaged, and your relationship should be sacred and noble.
You should never look around and compare your fiancé with any other
man or woman. When you are chosen to be a living sacrifice on the altar you
become a holy sanctuary. Do you married couples ever have unhealthy ideas?
The universe itself would not allow such a departure from cosmic law and
would cause you to feel pain in your conscience. When you feel pressure
and guilt, it is the universe warning you that destruction is taking place.
When the educational system centers upon unity of mind and body,
upon making one whole person, this nation will be completely different.
Without parents you cannot be a component of the heavenly four position
foundation. Parents are essential. Also, unless you become parents, your
four position foundation is not complete. The gay movement is the new avant
garde in American life. That relationship is centered upon sensual love and
it cannot produce children, so certainly it goes against universal principles.
Those people will be judged according to cosmic principles, which would not
Why do you feel sadness if your loved one passes away? What power makes
you cry? Why do you feel sadness if your children die? You know automatically
that it means you are prevented from completing the four position foundation.
When a wife dies, her husband is then an incomplete or imperfect element of
the universe. Then the universe says that he is not fully in harmony with
it, and when the universe rejects a person he feels sad.
In spirit world, however, the connecting line of love remains. In the
sight of God the spirit and physical worlds are one. But you must consummate
perfection here on earth, and when certain components of that perfection are
absent you feel sadness. Each time you practice love, you are widening your
own territory of love, both here on earth and in heaven. Though you might
think you are dedicated to forming the heavenly four position foundation on
earth, you might be blinded temporarily by difficulties. Then you might try
to draw your husband or wife away. Rejecting the universal purpose for your
own point of view is the greatest violation of universal law. In that case
it would be much better to cut off that component, and then God will give
you a better one.
If Adam had refused to have anything to do with Eve's temptation, telling
her she had no relationship to him any more, and then gone to God, God would
have created a better Eve for him. But instead, Adam followed the path of
the fall and started the generations of fallen history. If you don't want
to do the same then you must cut off anything that would lead you in that
direction. If you don't know the core principle then blindness will set in.
There is a recent instance of a wife feeling she couldn't go on any more,
and her husband allowed himself to be led away. There is no compromise
in the Principle. If there is any negative component in the four position
foundation, chop it off. I have demonstrated this myself.
Women are the most responsible for bringing the children into unity with
the four position foundation. A woman played the key role in bringing down
the dispensation when fallen Eve persuaded Adam into her circle. There is
a dangerous situation today in America in which women exercise tremendous
influence over men. If they can bring their men to the righteous side,
bearing the cross without complaint, then they are great women, but most
likely they will not do that. The men usually listen and follow the women.
The men have to restore their subjective role. Women's liberation has
gone too far so there should be men's liberation! The other day I saw one
man on the street wearing signs saying that men's rights have to be restored,
and men should be liberated from the tyranny of women. What I am saying
today is not just my own thinking, but derives from the cosmic principle.
If you violate these laws on earth, you are destined to hell. If you women
think I am being unfair, you can picket and demonstrate against me. But first
ask God if you should demonstrate, and He will answer you very clearly.
You should know this truth completely. Would you want to influence your
man away from God's way?
Through Eve, Cain and Abel should assume their rightful positions, but
Cain's world will not submit easily. There is a boundary between the satanic
world and the heavenly world. The original concept of the ideal creation
is that God would have dominion over the world through love. Love has the
power to dominate, but it never uses force. Instead of striking Cain's world,
you subjugate them with love. That's the universal principle.
Eve and Abel must work together to restore Cain. Abel should inherit
the birthright of the elder son. Since Cain is also Eve's son, once Eve
becomes involved there is hope to restore Cain. Eve and Abel should go to
Cain's world to serve and convince it with love to give up the birthright to
its rightful owner. Cain's world became fallen because of satanic love, so it
will be restored with heavenly love. That love has to be love that is stronger
and more intense than satanic love to melt Cain's heart. Whether fallen or
not, every creature reacts to the power of love, so Cain will be won over if
he can receive constant, pure love. Then Cain's love can also be purified.
Our role in Abel's position is to go to Cain's world and give unconditional
service and love for seven to twentyone years, receiving all the rejection
and resistance that world can give until it has to surrender to our love.
Because of the sequence of the fall, women have suffered very much
throughout history. I am very sympathetic because they have borne the
heavier burden. If a woman unites with the heavenly subject then naturally
her husband will be in a position to be jealous and try to separate his wife
from that subject. If his wife persists then her husband will become like
a wild man, beating her and locking her up. Inevitably there have been some
difficulties, but this has been the historical position of women. They have
borne the greater burden in making restitution for initiating the fallen act.
If a couple has children and they see their father unjustly persecuting
their mother, some of the children will inevitably side with the mother.
They will resolve to protect her and serve her cause on the Abel side.
Even if a child initially thinks his mother is unloyal to the father,
he will conclude that his father is too harsh on the mother, and stop
supporting him. There are many women in history who have been beaten so
much by their husbands that they fainted. But these women should feel no
resentment, asking instead that God forgive their husbands, praying that
they can understand. They should never ask God to bring vengeance.
In family restoration you must live the tradition of loving your enemy and
asking God to forgive him. If the mother upholds God's position and keeps
forgiving, then sooner or later all the children will come to her side.
When the father sees that no one takes his side, he might still try to
attack the mother but the children will shield her and declare that he has
already done too much to this woman, who has actually done nothing wrong.
If he persists, they will tell him he should go away and leave all of
them alone. When the husband sees that continuing the fight is fruitless,
he will surrender and apologize.
Should men or women initiate this kind of love campaign? Why shouldn't
the women ask God to get rid of any men who block the heavenly campaign?
Because of restitution. The fallen process has to be restored by reversal.
Eve enticed Adam, so women on the side of God should entice the men back to
God's side. Through that process the historical pain of men will be restored.
Women first bring their children to Abel's side, and then ultimately their
husbands will repent in tears. Events in the garden of Eden must be restored
Knowing this process, you Unification Church women are in a position
to be reprimanded by men. I am leading that campaign! Women are going
straight to God, and their husbands should chase after them. You women are
in the position of Eve before the fall if you are pure and God-centered.
Forget your dignity and position and demonstrate complete devotion to God.
You have to demonstrate the quality of Eve before the fall. If you don't
do it in seven years, you should do it in 21 years. This is why I tell you
that women should never complain for seven years. Even though you feel angry
and upset, as long as you do not open your mouth you can make restitution;
if you speak, however, you are proving you are on Satan's side. In many
cases women who join the Unification Church go a zig zag, up and down course,
instead of going straight up.
This is not my theory. This is a principle I have practiced myself.
I practice this in my home, and tell Mother that no matter how upset she
feels inside she should be silent and not open her mouth. If she speaks
out, it is a condition Satan can utilize. There is no exception for me in
this law; I have no special privileges. I have fulfilled every possible
responsibility toward women.
My first wife helped stir up incredible opposition to me among Korean
Christians. I have tasted painful persecution from this woman, but I never
said a word against her. Even at the age of seven my son knew his mother
was wrong. Though he had hardly seen me during those years, he came to me
when he was seven, saying he didn't want to live with his mother any more.
It was clear that he had taken Abel's side.
My first wife knew that I was the best husband, and her motivation for
all that persecution was to have me for herself. She told me she would earn
money to give me good clothes and food as long as I would stay home and not
worry about the Church. She would try to chase the women members of the
Church away, doing everything possible to keep me for herself.
Instead of supporting her husband in God's purpose, she wanted to have
him for herself. But the women members told her she was wrong and stood up
to protect me, telling her she was not really doing her husband any service.
If I had done as she asked and gone her way, would there be a Unification
Church today? I knew when I took up the path of God that my immediate
family would come against me, that my own wife and parents would criticize,
as well as my nation. But I was committed to persevere for seven years,
or twentyone years if I could not do it in seven. I initiated the three
seven-year courses, planning to serve my nation and the world. There were
nothing but enemies surrounding me, including my own family. Everyone -
my family, Christianity, my nation and the whole world - predicted I would
decline. The persecution was beyond human imagination, but even in those
circumstances God always brought sympathetic followers to me.
My goal was to reach the pinnacle in 1976, knowing that then world opinion
would start to change. But in the meantime I served the world for 21 years,
never saying anything against the people who persecuted me. I prayed for
their blessing instead. In the meantime my territory became larger and my
strength and influence were more concentrated. After 1976 the tide began
to turn, and instead of enduring silently while the world attacked me,
I began to go on the offensive against the world.
There are many episodes that I will not reveal because you could
not bear to hear them; you would break down in tears. You have endured
heartbreak in your own situation, but still it is nothing compared to mine.
Nevertheless, I could endure those things because God's situation was even
worse and more intense. My prayer was, "God, before You I have nothing
to say." In this way I became linked to God in total understanding.
Only by understanding sorrow and heartbreak can you become one with God.
This is the reason I push you to do what no one else wants to do. By enduring
tribulation you can become linked with God.
Even if you suffer many times more than I have, there should be no
complaint, because you are not suffering for yourself but for humanity.
You women in particular, will you commit yourselves? Keep your mouths shut,
no matter what, and never say the slightest word of complaint. Whatever you
say will be a condition against you, and I don't want that to happen.
God is following this law more scrupulously than anyone. He is more
silent than anyone. Until God can truly manifest His love for the world,
He has no word to say. Until I truly prove that I love mankind, I have no
word to say. But the time will come. God has practiced that rule, and I
have practiced it, and one more generation-which is you-should practice it.
The heavenly four position foundation has three stages of God, parents and
children, so three generations are needed to complete the dispensation.
God has practiced this and I have practiced it, and now it is your turn.
Once vindication is complete, God will speak up. Yet God will not talk
about how much He suffered, but will express His anger at the difficulty
the world has given His son. "I don't care about my suffering, but
you let my children suffer. That I cannot forgive."
I have often heard that after coming to America I made the serious blunder
of supporting President Nixon during Watergate. Actually I dislike Mr.
Nixon, and certainly I have no personal link and feeling for him. He is
the President who realigned American defense in Asia to exclude Korea.
I know that God's providence is always trying to link the East and West,
and Korea will have a key role in that. The Nixon Doctrine would hurt
that providence. Also, I know that the communists are trying to overrun
all Asia, and they key country they want is the entire Korean peninsula.
The Nixon Doctrine has to be changed.
Even though I abhorred Nixon's doctrine, I supported his position
as President because he concentrated American power in Southeast Asia,
trying to conclude the Vietnam war quickly. I knew that if Southeast
Asia fell there would be terrible consequences for all Asia. If a victory
could have been won in Vietnam then Korea's position would be strengthened.
I saw that because of the political scandal Nixon had no courage to go about
the national business, and the Vietnam situation became a remote concern.
That's why I proclaimed that America should forgive, love and unite with him.
By doing so America could concentrate again on the international scene.
Even under adverse conditions I proclaimed the true Christian doctrine of
forgiveness, love and unity. If the American public had responded to that
then the President could have concentrated on foreign policy. Everything I
did was for national salvation. I wanted to be the champion to bring the
spirit of forgiveness and true love in this country.
Every country conducts international espionage, and the KGB is doing
more than anyone else in taping secret conversations. The tapes that
brought Nixon's final downfall should have been brought out before the
entire press corps, and Nixon should have announced he could not afford to
endanger national security or free world security, maintaining that it was
his prerogative to destroy them before the entire nation. The CIA has great
quantities of tapes, and since they have the responsibility of keeping them
secret for national security, so should Nixon have assured his private tapes
would be kept secret by destroying them.
In God's sight, monitoring the secret conversations of other heads of
state would be an even worse crime. Nixon's priority job was to be conerned
with the millions of lives in Southeast Asia and bring a positive conclusion
to the conflict there. Because Nixon did not do that, Ford became President.
I was bitterly disappointed to see America literally lose its shirt in Vietnam.
America's international dignity was totally smeared, and ever since other
nations have scorned America.
God blessed this nation and supported it for 200 years. God wanted to
build up a strong and dignified America which would exercise leadership in
the world for the sake of God. My strongest desire is to restore America's
dignity so it can exercise leadership against the enemy, which is communism.
Nixon failed, and he betrayed this country. Ford was a mediocre president.
Carter is selling out America. I gain nothing by saying these things except
more hostile treatment by the United States government. But I have to speak
the truth, regardless of the consequences. Have I done anything wrong?
If Jesus had been able to mobilize his people to march on Rome, start
a movement there, then triumph over opposition there and be vindicated in
his lifetime, there would not have been any 400 years of martyrdom among
the early Christians, and Christians would not have suffered for 2,000 years.
I do not live my own private life; my life is setting history straight
and laying the cornerstone of history to come. What I do in my lifetime is
not for myself but for history. I must clearly set things for the future.
I must be vindicated in my lifetime by winning victory on the worldwide base.
My tradition, position and legal rights must be clear. If I had done this in
Korea or anywhere else in Asia it would not be the worldwide victory. I had
to come to the Rome of the modern age to wage that battle and win the victory.
My critics in America have gathered all the rumors and allegations
made about me in Korea and publicized them as the truth, trying to smear
my name through character assassination. That came to a peak in 1976.
I won a towering victory, and declared in Washington, D.C., America's
capital and the capital of the free world, who I am and what I am doing.
Because I won this victory, there shall be no more of this dirty persecution
in the coming generations. After that victory I declared the start of the
offensive battle in Korea, Japan and the world. We will bring into court
anyone making false statements about me. Already we have won over 100 legal
cases in America alone.
You should know in what dirty way some Americans are trying to destroy me.
We will be proven legally to be right, and the only route left to our enemies
will be violence. If they ever did that then America would be totally
ignored by the free world. Have I done something right or wrong by taking
our battle to the courts? People thought I was a helpless Korean man, but
when they attacked me they found a man of conviction and power who represents
the authority of God. Even the American Government cannot take me lightly,
and this lesson will be learned by all the other governments of the world.
I do not just believe this; I know it.
Whenever anyone tries to exterminate me illegally, the conscience of
the world's people will be stung and people around the world will rise up.
Even if I die, the Unification movement cannot falter. I am going forward
with strength and conviction because I know this is true.
I spoke and gave testimony to U.S. Congressmen, and it is recorded in
the legal proceedings kept in the Congressional Record, and it shall remain
as evidence for generations to come. Those were historical remarks.
For what? All this I have done for the sake of love. I have never
cursed America. If it weren't for God I could curse this nation, but for
God's sake I cannot. The blacks in this country have been oppressed for
centuries by the whites, but it is nothing compared to what has happened to
me in this nation. If what this whole nation has done was known, the blacks
would be sympathetic to me.
But I keep forgiving America and praying for her blessing. That is God's
will. I am telling you that when you forgive yoo will not be destroyed.
If you forgive and love and embrace people, you will be their savior.
I have been accused and cursed but I am still moving toward center stage.
Already three hours have passed. Shall I keep going? I don't want to
talk too much because I want to push you out to work! If you want to hear
more then I will continue.
When you are blessed you should never evaluate your husband to see if he
is handsome and capable; look at yourself instead and determine whether you
are worthy of being matched to any man, whether you have taken responsibility
for the position of restoring Eve's position. If you find that you love
yourself most, then you are your own enemy. Check whether you are really
concerned about saving the nation.
Do not ever think that I hate American women. I love them and truly
want to see them succeed; I want to pay more attention to them and give them
extra advice. If you deserve the highest honor but you put yourself in the
lowest place then you are great. Because God needed you and summoned you,
you are grateful. That's the way you should feel. Your most important
concern is whether God can accept you. That should be your first worry-not
even whether your husband will like you.
Mothers do all the dirty chores at home. Changing diapers and cleaning
up messes are done by the mother. Mother and I practice the same principle.
I tell Mother that she should unite with the children and bring them together
to their father. When Mother brings them to me then I can love them more
than she does, more than anyone else loves them. Our youngest, Hyung Jin,
recognizes Mother first and is attached to her and I am a little jealous!
But I comfort myself by knowing that this is according to Principle.
Hyung Jin smiles and laughs when Mother talks to him. but resigned to that.
If women fulfill Mother's role well, you are in a key spot to be loved
more by everyone else. God will love you more; your children will call
you the number one mother; your husband will appreciate you. I want to see
American women trying to be servants now, but you have the consolation that
then you shall become queens. Do you want that?
You must wait, however, until you go this route of serving and then come
back as a victorious mother and wife. We have a fierce battle here in America.
CARP is representing the Unification Church on the front line, so I wanted to
mobilize more than just the men. The women should play the major role here.
In the garden of Eden Eve brought destruction to Adam and her children,
so now Eve shall bring salvation to her husband and children and shall be
in a position to be the most loved. From being on the front line you can
gather much experience that will be useful for your husband and children.
You have to know the taste of tears and of love.
You practice intense love in trying to win members, and when you come
back home you will be able to love your husband and children with even greater
intensity. You love your husband more than your Abel, and your children more
than your husband, and thus the true harmony of a family shall be instituted.
This is the ultimate recommendation and credential I can give American women.
Would you accept or reject it? Women have the key role in the success of
the family. Is this just my opinion, or is it God's principle? Is it needed
I have brought the blueprint for salvation of this country, yet
everywhere I go I am ridiculed and called names. But on the other side God
and the spirit world are pushing me with all their might and supporting me.
Would you like to be just a bystander? You are
willing to accept persecution on my behalf, aren't you? You are standing
at the original home base of the consummation of the universe. If that is
the case then is there anything you cannot do?
I fulfilled all by myself, without having anything. When I was lonely
and there was no one else, I still fulfilled. Here you have the entire world
responding to you. If you still cannot do it under those circumstances-God
forbid. If nothing else at least you can be silent. If you cannot go then
let other people go; at least never pull down to your level thechampions
who are going ahead of you. Can you do it?
You are standing at the home base of universal perfection, so when you
laugh the universe will smile. When you are sad and heartbroken, the universe
will suffer that same heartbreak. You are representatives of the universe.
Today we know very clearly what needs to be done vertically and horizontally.
This is not the road that only I have to go. Everyone has to go this way,
but I had to go by myself, being persecuted and alone. But you go with
comrades and with the praise of the people. We have to cover that route
If you don't go now then eventually I will have to sit in judgment on you
in spirit world, and I don't want that at all. I never want you to violate
that law. It is my love to push you out so that under any circumstances
you can succeed in this way. It is an expression of my love.
1979 is coming to a close, and 1980 will truly be a year of hope.
This is the night time, but when 1980 comes we will see the daylight for
the Unification Church. If you can truly say that with true love you will
go all the way to the goal, with real commitment, raise your hands please.
God bless all of you.
