THE CREATION OF

Translated by Col. Han
This morning's title translates to "Let us create our own
kingdom of heaven" or as Father says, "Creation of my
heaven". Who creates this kingdom? I have to create my own
kingdom. If the human ancestors did not fall, then the kingdom of
heaven would be established already. But today's world is the kingdom
of hell on earth. What is hell? It is the place where there is no
Godly love or concern. There is no connection to God at all and no
kind of relationship to Him. No matter how earnestly one lives, even
if he becomes accomplished and successful, he still remains unconnected
to God. That is the sorrowful situation of the world today.
In the original heaven there would be no war or fighting. In an
external world without fighting, what would we do? [Love.] Would it
get boring? I don't mean for just just one year, but for all eternity.
What would you do? Would you be a hermit and live alone or would you
make as many relationships as possible with other humans? With what
would you make those relationships? True love. That is the eternal
world in which we won't worry about what to eat, what to wear or where
we live. It is different from this world where we have to be concerned
with those things.
We will eat in the spirit world, but whatever we want to eat is
right there. We will wear clothes too, but they are already there. You
don't have to make effort to buy them. There is no transportation in
spirit world. In that world there are no food factories, stores,
plumbing or auto manufacturing. Imagine that world. What can you find
to do in that world? That is the world where you eat, but since the
essence of life is love, you eat with love. When speaking to others,
you talk with lots of heart and love. You also travel with love. If you
do not, you cannot resonate with the spirit world.
The spirit world is close to the essence of God's love. It is a
highly elevated and refined place. The person who can do these things
in spirit world is at a higher level and is closer to God. What would
you envy in this kind of world? The influence of love is so intense and
immediate you want to respond to it as quickly as possible. You have
the capacity to adjust the environment quickly.
There is lots of envy in this world, but what about there? We have
men and women here on earth, and in the spirit world there are two
categories of human beings as well. Why did God create man and woman?
So they would share a love like His, creating harmony and prevailing
over the world.
Look at a woman for example. She has eyes and ears just like a man
does. There is nothing lacking. There is nothing to be envious of.
Should we be proud of our face when everyone essentially looks the
same? Look at a so called beautiful woman. She may be beautiful from
the front, but from the side she is not so beautiful. And from the back
she is not beautiful at all. So it depends on the way you look at
things. Each one of us is unique in our own way.
What is the essence you can claim as originally yours? Something
that no one else can copy. It is your original love. That is what you
can be proud of. Your personality is enhanced by your love. Your
natural personality will radiate and shine out.
In the spirit world you will be flooded in love. You will be a
recipient. Things move quickly in response to a higher love. We are
proud of that capacity. We immediately feel love and return it. There
is that kind of immediate communication. Response is instantaneous.
Here on earth, that cannot be done because of the fall. Everything
takes a long time. Man has lost the most valuable things. We were given
the blessing of resembling even God Himself. If you resemble God, there
is nothing to be envious of.
This is the world we have to cultivate our minds and hearts for. We
need to discover shim jung, using God as the standard. If you can do
this, you will be like a moon reflecting the rays of the sun.
Experience love directly from God and reflect that. Who do you
resemble? God. Do you just resemble Him or have you become one with
You resemble your father and mother, right? If you love them with
your whole heart you come to feel that because you resemble them, you
are good. Children are reflections of their parents. You see yourself
by looking at your own children. It is also true that by looking at
your parents, someone can see what kind of a child you are. Because of
love you feel one with your parents. But if it is hatred you feel
towards them, you will also hate that which resembles you, whether it
is your parents, children or whatever.
We take after our grandparents too. Love is the bond. lt. makes
everything look joyous and lovely. Without love there is only chaos and
hatred. That is what we see here on earth. The problem is
"me." It is not outside. It is me. I create heaven or destroy
it. I make a happy life or create misery. No one but me does this. In
spirit world we will find this out. Everyone is given the same
property. Womenkind are all the same. One woman doesn't have special
characteristics. All have the same blessing. The only difference may
be that if one is an incarnation of love, then she is great Others
may be more saturated with hate. No one will want to look at that kind
of woman. If a woman is saturated with love, all want to be close to
Within us we have God, parents and love. That means everything
which God and our parents have. It is up to the individual to make good
or bad of it. No one is given special eyes, they are just two balls of
eye material. But when they are in a person who is an incarnation of
love, all that they see is melting with love. The stronger the love,
the higher the sight of these eyes. All want to join in this line of
All beautiful music wants to flow through the ears of one who is an
incarnation of love. There are very beautiful birds in spirit world.
They want to sing to ears of love. They will ride on your shoulder so
they can be close. You can listen to the birds sing all day and not be
tired of it.
If you saw a really beautiful diamond, what would you think of it?
It may be fascinating, but if you have real love, would you envy a
diamond? No, because there is no such thing as a loving diamond or a
diamond with life. It is only a material thing. But our life has both
of these things. Our most precious thing is our love diamond or life
diamond- that is "me"!
Imagine the immense limitless spirit world. It is our arena of
activity. We can go wherever we want To do that, our feeling of love
has to go ahead of us. You can think, "I want to see him",
and then you are there.
When a person on earth is fascinated with flowers, we see that in
the spirit world she can reach anywhere. She is training herself for
the spirit world to come. There will be flowers and all creatures,
birds, animals, even snakes with venom. Maybe you hate snakes, but if
you remember that there are male and female snakes, can you hate them?
Put yourself in the position of a male snake and think of how you would
feel looking at a female snake!
When two cows or two horses look at each other, do they think they
look dumb? [No.] Animals caress with their tongues because they have no
hands. There is nothing shameful in love. Cows and horses rub on each
other as a sign of affection. God loves everybody and everything with
human beings at the center.
In Korea, there is a special fish that looks like an eel. It is not
beautiful. It is funny looking, but we feel affection for it. Imagine
it did not exist, so someone decided to create it. It would look so
fantastic. If it was a male eel, it would continually nag the creator
to make a female eel. The creator would think this so exciting,
"He wants another one for his spouse!" When the creator sees
him with his spouse, how happy and proud he would be. Wonderful!
There is no limit to harmony. It cannot come to an end. Everything
can harmonize with everything else, the list is never ending. All
possibilities exist in spirit world. Cultivate your aptitude so you can
become a great artist. You will be singing and dancing after your mind
and body become one. You will be able to find a million motions to use
dancing. God does the best painting, but would God rather look at a
masterpiece or the real creation in action? God's own masterpiece is
When someone you love comes near, your hair responds the fastest.
Did you know that hair is that sensitive? The intoxication of love is
another experience you have in spirit world. You never get old because
you are always joyous and intoxicated with love. Do you imagine that in
spirit world it is always sunny and looking the same? That is not true,
there is variety there as well. Sometimes there are clouds or mist It
is up to the individual. Sometimes here it rains and things look
different It causes a person to become more adjustable. That person
goes to spirit world where basically things don't change but this
person makes it change based on his experience. Imagine how happy you
could be singing and dancing in the rain with an umbrella after you go
to spirit world.
We train ourselves here so we can be a wizard in the spirit world.
Do you mean to say there is no unhappiness in spirit world? No, there
is no unhappiness. It's the way we receive it. The way we experience
many things is to make us versatile.
In spirit world we can push a button like on a VCR and see all of
someone's past life on video tape, one scene at a time. A woman may
have a beautiful face, but we have to see the mind through the face.
What kind of mind should you have? As beautiful as your face. Then when
you go to spirit world everyone will be proud of that kind of woman.
You will appear as a light from far away. Each one is valueless without
love. So happiness or unhappiness depends upon each individual.
Look back on life. Did you complain about others or yourself? Did
you say to others, "Because of this I am unhappy" or "I
am good but because of an outside guy I am miserable." Satan
planted this in us. We tend to blame others and not ourselves. If Satan
reflected on himself he would have to immediately bow down and confess
to God for being the villain. When you have hatred in you, always think
of it as "Satan is coming to grab me and dump me in the ocean of
hell." If there is hatred, direct it to "me" and not
others. Realize where it is coming from.
A woman's characteristic is that when she sees something she wants
to speak about it. So you have to close your eyes and mouth. A woman
doesn't want to listen to others. She only wants to be heard and not
hear others. Women follow after beautiful dresses. Satan knows this and
will make a beautiful dress and walk in front of this woman, so she
follows. A beautiful woman wants to entice men. She puts on makeup and
lipstick and nail polish. From spirit world it looks like she is
putting dirt all over her face to entice a man. This makes Satan very
happy but God and spirit world don't even want to look. Should women
make up to look beautiful for their husband alone or to everyone? Only
her husband. A manicure looks like a fox claw. Very dangerous! Why do
women like that? Father never heard of a husband encouraging his wife
to have more beautiful fingernails.
It is Satan's frequency to lure women with these things. It is
serious, not to be laughed about. If you have a new purse which you
admire, you walk down 5th Avenue and carry it proudly. But right
behind you there is a big snake watching you.
Look at a typical village. Who makes most of the bad smells there?
[One sister answers, "Men."] A woman says man. That is
Satan's character. The general rule is that women should be confined
one third more than men. Women make one third more noise than men. One
third of women make more noise than all men do.
Do you all want to go to heaven? You will need a passport. What kind
of passport? Do you think you can freely pass into heaven? We have to
make our life like True Parents'. Who creates it?
What is Fathers topic today? "The Creation of My Heaven".
I create it. But we have lots of complaints in our minds like "My
father and mother didn't pay enough indemnity" and "My
parents didn't send me to school." There are so many excuses to
stay unhappy. Are you more happy or unhappy? You're not happy. This is
something we have to study and improve. How to digest an unhappy
situation and make it happy. Train yourselves in this. Take away the
contents which make you unhappy. Who does that? You. Not God, not your
leaders. Only you can make negativity into positivity. This is
absolute, not comparative. Let's say that God can eliminate
unhappiness in a person. But it will come again and again like a weed.
If you don't like your clothes, give them away. It is better to have
rags but a heart of parents. Than you can give birth to a son who is
like a prince in the original world. That kind of feeling will be
welcomed in spirit world. We have to develop that.
Spirit world will look well at that woman who could produce a
princely child even though she is in rags. She will look beautiful. The
quality of heartful love is there. It doesn't matter what her clothes
or her looks are like. With miserable clothes, if she displayed the
most joyous heart, spirit world would want to display those rags in
We have the hope to resemble Father. Digest hell into heaven,
suffering into joy and unhappiness into happiness. Ugliness should
become beauty. Change an ungodly point of view to God's point of view.
If God sees the most miserable scene He will record the scene of His
restoration. But if a person turns it to a place of beauty, it will be
an even better record and God will keep it forever. Satan will come to
admire it as well. Satan will say, "Someday, sometime I will
Father digested even pain and hunger in prison. He did not feel
revenge on America, but reached into the root of America and found God
dwelling in the deepest place of American misery. How wonderful that
is. At that point Satan has to retreat When we see some misery coming,
see this as a chance to make a victory. Don't lose the chance to occupy
and overcome Satan.
When women speak they are bound to complain. Women are a
complaining fountain. Do we have to choose what we see? Yes, don't just
see everything. If you really want to be a filial daughter in law, try
to obey the rigid law of heaven and forget complaint. Don't complain no
matter what. Set your standard low so you can always be happy. Look
down, not up. The whole origin of human misery started from a woman's
mouth. American women have become experts at packing and leaving their
husband's home. They come and go easily. When they return they kiss
their husband and expect to be forgiven. Father and God do not like
this. I am warning you.
Let us create the kingdom of heaven. How? Eliminate the potential
essence in you which leads to complaining. Don't go near the situation
that brings it up in you. Stay away from the source. Throw away
complaint and unhappiness. The center of love power is stronger than
the power to complain. Everyone has this. If your husband passes away,
you should think, "This is no problem. God is making a good
experience for me. God gave me this experience to overcome Satan."
If you can do this, you can overcome everything. How wonderful! You can
then occupy Gods love and blessing.
From now you can do that. Say, "All bad things come to me and I
will overcome you. Come Satan, all my lifetime and I will immediately
clean it up with strong love power." From there you can make the
kingdom of heaven. This is making freedom. Father understands this
deepest concept can occupy everything. There will be no enemy in your
conscience. Since there is no enemy we are automatically in heaven.
Regard all your senses as an enemy if they are a source of complaint.
This is only the first page of life. Spirit world is like the second
page. When we become victors, all of those coming behind will admire
us. The more complaint we digest, we will find God within our grasp.
God will say, "You resemble me." God will endorse this
Create your heaven. Take initiative then invite God there. What a
filial child you will be then. God will praise you.
What we see now is not the original plan of heaven, but we can
digest it and turn it around. Become a victor. It is very difficult but
it is possible. We have good reason to do this, because God has been
doing this and True Parents have been doing this. To claim ourselves as
True Children we must do this too. God and True Parents worked hundreds
of years to do this for you. How much pain they endured for your sake.
We have too much the easy way. Every time you open your mouth, be
thankful. For whatever you see, be thankful. Smell, hear, touch,
everything thankful. Then you can make the kingdom of heaven, no
problem. Those who pledge to do this raise your hands.
