REVEREND SUN MYUNG MOON
OF THE HEART
November 1, 1990
Translator - Sang Kil Han
The topic of Father's sermon this morning is "Shim Jung Eui
Jo Ryu." It means "current of heart," or "tide
of heart." Today the majority in attendance are the leaders, isn't
that so? Those who will attend the Leaders' Conference, raise your
hands please. Is today Halloween Day? (Yesterday; today is All Saints'
Day.) All Saints' Day. Are the Campus Ministers present? Raise your
hands high, please.
What is the meaning of tide, the ocean current, or tide? The tide
comes into being from the pulling power of the moon's gravity and also
from the differences in temperature of ocean currents between the
tropical and cold zones. It flows around Mexico, the Philippines; it
goes all the way around the world. The current does not move by itself,
but it is all ultimately connected. There's a "black current"
in the Orient, which circulates to every corner of the globe.
Do you think these currents move at will? Can they say, "I
don't feel like continuing; let's change direction"? Or, I'm
tired; let's stop"? Similar to the orbital movement of all cosmic
existents: earth, satellites, what have you they move around an orbit;
they cannot help it. As all things grow in the springtime and
summertime: they cannot go against the clock. They can't say,
"No, I'd rather blossom later on." They have only one season.
It's the same principle.
Men, too, have no choice. They cannot say, I want to live longer,
for another generation." The old will fade away and the young will
come into being and continue this cosmic life. Each one goes into
action and moves with the law of all things and continues to exist.
Then what is the base on which mankind moves? What is the dominating
factor in human life? Centering on what do we move?
As we look back in history, mankind started as hunters, nomads.
Today we have advanced economies. Yet one thing is constant: people
have to live centering on the food they can produce. More powerful,
advanced nations are proud of their superior economic foundation. This
centers on transportation, the ability to transport goods. A country's
destiny is dependent upon its economy: its ability to get hold of
materials, to produce, distribute and circulate commodities. There is
the acquisition of raw materials, which you put into production; then
you distribute the resultant products domestically and internationally.
This weaves a web of economic activity.
Thus far, the country which has been best at production has held the
leadership. That pattern is changing now. The ability to produce is
becoming equalized; there is not so much difference between countries
in terms of production. Now production is not the key factor in
leadership. The factors determining leadership now are the supply of
raw materials, natural resources, and the ability to market. No matter
how much you can make, if you can't sell it there is no benefit.
Since World War II the two leading nations, Russia and America, have
been fighting each other, visibly or invisibly, over the acquisition of
resources. The less developed countries, in Africa and South America,
are realizing this and are pushing Russia and America away. "We
don't need you," they are saying. Now the essence of prosperity is
marketing and distribution. The question is who will secure a greater
market and effective marketing power.
Let us look more sharply, further analyze, and see what is taking
place now. The marketplace is changing, and the main factor which
determines the market is the country's thought and religion. The
people will determine their country's course and direction, based upon
their religious beliefs. Unification Church members are developing
their course according to the will of God. In which direction should we
move? One thing is certain: we will play a leading role, and that role
will center upon developing markets, economically speaking. First we
have to understand and conceptualize. Then we have to practice. That
means the Unification Church members have to become accustomed to
thinking in these terms as time advances.
Look at Japan. It is well known that Japan is prosperous, but Japan
does not have a huge number of factories nor much in the way of natural
resources of any kind. Japan has worked very effectively to secure
markets. So Unification members have been trained in light of the
importance of the market. Fundraising, for instance. Our MFT, which
essentially is a religious activity, at the same time provides a wide
experience for understanding marketing principles. We started with
humble flowers, but certainly that will not be the end of it. We have
come a long way in Japan. Members of our movement now have about 300
factories, small and large. We developed a very effective distribution
and marketing system. We sell what we make and what others make. Our
leaders there are very small, but everyone respects them and tries to
make a good relationship with them and follow them. Why? Because they
have in their hands the ability to market. Therefore our decision as
to whose product to buy is very important. If we do not buy from a
country, then that country has no place to sell.
Unification Church members go beyond the national boundary, and
beyond the religious boundary, and we can exert a great influence over
these areas. Thought plays the main role. For instance, the one who
goes against God certainly will lose the ability to develop. Father
has been harmonizing the realm of religion. All religions should go in
one common direction. Also, politics react to this development;
politics follow thought. Countries which accept communist thought go in
the communist direction. Countries which accept democratic thought go
in the democratic direction. Their course is determined by their
thought. When a country follows Unificationism, then what shall be
produced in that country? In the world today, there is not much
variation of quality level among producers of the same product. So if
we buy a certain product from one country, then every country will buy
it from that same country. We will have lots of influence. Father has
been working to influence the whole world in the area of thought. We
teach the thought that a human being ought to have: Godism. Based upon
that, our movement has religious activities, economic activities,
political activities, and even cultural activities. Father has been
weaving these for many years.
Therefore, Unification Church members have a lot to do. They are
told to do so many things that their heads swim, but they have to do a
lot of things and think about many areas. When Father urges us to go in
a certain direction, then the more members we have the more that
direction will develop.
The Panda automobile company is now getting started. Members of our
movement should drive only Pandas and also sell Pandas. Members in
Japan will develop the distribution system for Panda. That will make a
lot of difference. German cars have been prized as the top of the line,
but today the Japanese cars have caught up with them, and Lexus is just
as good as BMW or Mercedes. It is cheaper and just as good. Now
Japanese cars are racing ahead with German cars following. and American
cars are just tagging along.
The Unification Church members can make a lot of difference. If we
encourage the sales of American cars all over the world, this will give
American cars an advantage. But this does not mean that America will
lead. Other countries will lead America. When other countries choose to
use American products, America must follow. Thus, America is being led.
The country which has the greater marketing ability will lead not only
a gigantic country such as America, but the whole world.
The young people of the world look for which country has the best
university for the study of economic theory and affairs. They will look
for the country with the best philosophy of economics. The country
whose universities espouse an economic theory which is not geared
toward their own country's benefit but for the sake of the whole world
will become the most popular. The world is one. Therefore study is for
the sake of the world, never for the sake of one country alone. It is
inevitable: the world is bound to be one. There is no way to stop
In education, the necessary basics, such as religious thought, must
go beyond the national boundary. And all fields of thought must go
beyond the boundary of the nation. Therefore we need thought, religious
teachings and basic theory which encompass the whole world, which
establish a foundation commonly accepted by all nations.
In which direction will the world go? It will go toward the level of
thought that is higher than that which now exists. Religion will also
move in this direction. Today we have a certain religious situation,
but when a higher religious power comes which will lift that up, the
whole world will follow in that direction. When these two, thought and
religion, combine together and learn to work effectively, then the
whole world cannot help but follow that direction. Where do we find the
group or country with the higher level of thought and higher level
of religion, and which has combined these together into a working
system? If we find that, then the direction this group or country is
going will be the direction eventually followed by the whole world.
That would determine the future of the world, the image of the
twentyfirst century. This would be how the world will develop in
the twenty first century.
The Tide of Heart
We have been talking about economic affairs. What about power? How
will power shift? In what will it consist? Power resides with the one
who can influence the mind of the people, and especially who can
influence families to transcend national boundaries. We can see the
Unification Church blessed families move from one nation to another.
Immediately we can move from one place to another. No government can
make that happen. They do not have the thought which is powerful enough
to move families from one place to another place in the world. They
don't have that level of thought, much less of action. The country
which has thought also has autonomy, and other countries will have to
follow that. The group which has thought and action naturally has power
Unification Church members, especially leaders, might have wondered
what Father has been doing. Father has to prepare for the future world.
What else would he be doing? The world is about to change, and we have
to prepare ourselves to go in that direction of change. Father has been
placing a net. Members say, "Father, nothing is here. What are you
doing?" Father says, "Here, this is a net." Father knows
where the current is going to go. Wait, and you will see that
everything eventually has to pass this point. Where else would you put
These economic matters, and thought matters, and family matters we
put everything together and form a very effective activity. What is
that? That is the Happy Mind delivery system, with which we can deliver
anything within thirty minutes. At that time, factories should be
spread thinly all around the world, because there is too much pollution
when factories concentrate in one area. Urban areas, cities, will have
to dissipate. There is no reason for millions of people clustering
together creating confusion.
It will be easy to find a livelihood, easy to obtain products. All
things will be done through a simple system. Formerly, there were good
reasons for people to live in cities, because the highest standard of
cultural life was there. Once you left the city, there was nothing. But
that is changing very fast, because of mass media, television and
newspapers. You can witness cultural events of the city out in the
countryside, even better than you can in the city. City people need to
commute and work eight hours a day-they have packed schedules. But in
the countryside it will become easier to produce
agricultural goods, and all you will have to do is watch television
to see what is going on in the city. In the country you will have more
time to think about it, to study and analyze. You will be able to
participate in the cultural life of the city just as well while sitting
in the countryside.
You needn't live near a big shopping center, because everything will
be delivered to your doorstep. What about education, schools? Schooling
will become better than it is now. We can study by video. By video we
can accomplish the high school and college courses just as now. But
also we will be able to research a fortyyear career. We can obtain
education about the country of our residence one decade after another.
After graduation we can be educated by video our entire lives.
From one factory to another the products will be uniform and have a
common standard. For example, there is only one best computer system.
Nobody will use a different system; everyone will have a common
What about language? It will be the biggest problem. The world's
language is bound to be unified. Once we overcome that problem, once we
learn a common language, then the racial and national differences will
be no more. You will be able to live in any country, any place, any
time. There will be no separation of black people, white people; they
will all be mixed equally. White people may say, "No, we'd rather
stick together and live by ourselves." That wouldn't last very
long. Soon they would ask, "Please, let us in, so we can develop
with you.' This is what the future will be.
White people don't have so much to be proud of. Where did they
start? Actually, they are a minority in numbers. There are only 800
million white people compared to five billion of the rest. So they
have less that onefifth of the total population They are a
It will not be likely that we will need visas. The older generation
may use them, but the younger generation will just travel in and out.
Those who proclaim that the visa system should last forever and ever,
raise your hands. (Laughter.) But America still places a tremendous
importance on visas. It doesn't seem to be fair, because Americans can
go anywhere. Because Americans created an unfair system, the world's
people say, "Yankee, go home."
Do you think Father is vastly exaggerating? Or that the world is
going to be like this in a very short time? What is your prediction?
What language will the world choose as a common language? It will be
the language which is used in the country which has the higher, deeper
thought, and higher and deeper religious theory and practice. That
country will become the center of the world, and everyone will want to
use that language. This is not a matter of coercion; no one is forcing
this, saying "should." No, this is a natural development.
People will choose it.
Already the center is formed for this future direction of the world,
namely the Unification Church. Unification members are internationally
married; all races are mixed. Within three generations most of our
families will each represent at least ten nationalities. Many countries
will be connected into one race, one tribe. Think about that. That
means many countries are combined in one place. Which language among
the ten will they use? English? No way. But you say, "Father,
that's a long way off into the future." No, believe it. We will
see it while we are still living-in our generation. (Applause.)
It is amazing that Father's lifelong work is to unify thought and
unify religion for humankind. That's an amazing accomplishment, over
which God rejoices. But those who have no true knowledge of Father say,
"Rev. Moon is 80 farfetched; he must be crazy,
unrealistic." But it is they who are unrealistic. Also, Father is
leaving an archive, the words which Father spoke through the forty
years of enduring myriad persecution. These will serve as living
guidance for the whole world. Studying Father's words will be like
studying an encyclopedia, which shows in great detail hundreds of
thousands of ways to accomplish victory in trying times.
There is no field Father did not touch. Father spoke on every
field. To become a top economist, studying Father's words will be the
prerequisite. The material Father is sharing with us this morning is
the foundation for the writing of thousands of doctoral dissertations.
Those who make a face are simply ignorant. Since you don't know, it
just doesn't register. You may not understand now, but in the near
future, don't you think you will understand? Look at the past. No one
ever understood Father on the same day that he was speaking. Only later
did they catch on.
Our direction must be consistent with the future direction of the
world. If your system does not fit with the future direction, it is
useless, obsolete. Useless means that it is decayed, corrupted.
rotten. It was good at one time, perhaps, but it has decayed, become
corrupted. What happens to stagnant water? It becomes corrupted,
Which language are you going to use in the future? (Korean.) Will
learning Korean will be more important than learning Russian, Chinese
or other languages? Which will have the priority? (Korean.) Why?
Because in the Korean language we can find the deepest thought in the
world of religion-the ideal, the deepest thoughts, all combined into
one. That precious understanding is found in the Korean language. The
outside world does not know this and has persecuted us. But the world
is evolving, and moving to the other side. The high will go down, and
the low will go up. And the lowest will go to the highest point. This
happens automatically, not by force. From this perspective, should
Father have taught us and led us differently than he did? Or did Father
do well? (Did well. Applause.)
We took fundraising seriously, more seriously than our professions.
In the future, property ownership will move from purely individual
ownership into group ownership, possibly ownership by family or
extended family. The vertical relationship will be one, but the
horizontal relationships can vary greatly. Vertically, it is a
"world property" concept. Horizontally, it is group, 360
degrees group property, not individual ownership.
In the future the world inevitably will use resources frugally, not
wastefully. We will save resources; they are not unlimited. There need
not be cooking in every house. There can be a village bakery, utilizing
minimal resources for maximum product. You can make your own particular
dish, but make a lot to share with other people. If everyone does
that, then no one has to cook every day. In fact you would have to cook
only a few days a year. And there would be a system by which a hot meal
would be on your table within fifteen minutes of your ordering it. You
would just enter your order into a computer, and it would be delivered
to your doorstep.
This system is useful for ordering clothes. That doesn't mean you
have to wear a uniform. There will be hundreds of different styles,
colors, materials, and all you have to do is state your size and
preference with a number. That day is very near. You say, "Oh
Father, that day will be very slow in arriving." No, Father will
hasten it. (Laughter and applause.) Why? Father has manpower and
organization power. Moving out is no problem. Now we are making that
foundation, connecting every area. Father not only prophesies it, but
he has been preparing for it. America doesn't think about making that
kind of preparation. China, too, no matter how big it is, will crumble
down if it does not prepare. So, is it likely to happen? (Yes.) One
reason we can be sure is that spirit world is like that. Spirit world
is our original hometown. The earth is our body's original hometown.
Spirit world is the mind's original home town. From here, the only way
we can go is toward the mind's world. Americans have to eat hamburger
and cheese. Koreans can't do without kimchee. Trends here on earth
must follow the pattern set in spirit world. That place is better than
here; it is heaven.
No matter how long your life on earth may be, it is only a dot in
eternity, one second, compared to the eternal life we are going to
lead. So long as we are human beings and not animals, we cannot deny
that point. Once everyone understands the spirit world, everyone will
understand the way of life we should lead on earth. We will practice
the same kind of life we expect in the spirit world. Father has been
educating us to be kings of the market system in the future. Then we
can become responsible people in important world organizations. You
cannot occupy important positions without training. What is your guess:
is Father's thought practical and powerful enough to bring the spirit
world and physical world into unification? (Yes.) That is a dual
structure. That doesn't mean a relationship between two things that are
the same. One is vertical, the other is horizontal. In that sense it
All existence has to follow this 90degree relationship. When a
tree stands, it orients itself vertically. It doesn't take the
horizontal line into consideration; it doesn't matter what slope it is
on. The tree is not dumb. It is smart! What about man? Man is dumb,
still making 90 degrees according to the horizontal line, the fallen
thought world. We should bow down to trees, because they are better
than us, always standing at 90 degrees based upon the vertical line.
And birds always take the 90 degrees based upon the vertical line. Only
humankind takes the different degree. Dumb. In Korean, dum dum hada
means "he is not so smart."
Now it is high time for us to know that what Father has been doing
is toward a real goal which will be realized in the near future, as
well as the distant future. Fundraising without this vision might be
difficult, but if you know why you are doing it, isn't it a hopeful
activity? (Yes.) You may think that political elections are a real
activity, but fundraising is more real, because if you fundraise well,
you will be able to win election campaigns. Worldly people concentrate
on the elections only when they arise, every four years. But we do that
always, every day, our whole life.
If black people were to take Father's words seriously and put them
into action, they would set the trend and be the leaders. There are two
ways to follow. One is to really see the objective; the other is when
you don't want to go but you have to. In the latter, you will not go
fast; automatically you will slow down, get behind and be defeated.
Leading the Future
History will move in this direction. Is Father dumb or smart?
(Smart.) Compared with five billion in the world, is Father dumb or
smart? There is only one smart man, and five billion are dumb. That is
why five billion rise up against him. In the evening time, five billion
people are against me, but in the morning time they will see clearly
that the Unification Church is leading the way into the future, and
they will see they should follow. But already they lost their chance.
They will not be able to connect with that activity.
Until now, we've been persecuted and frustrated, but we've been
faithfully following Father and the Unification Church. Are you happy
you did it? (Yes.) There are predominantly white American leaders here.
Compared with the Korean and Japanese leaders here, are the Americans
on top, second, or in third place just barely tagging along? (Third,
laughter.) Why do you laugh after saying "third"? Does anyone
like third place? Until now Americans were number one. Anything
different from the American standard was number two. But today you
realize maybe you are number three. You might try to apply a different
standard so that Americans do not come out number three. Dr. Durst,
please give a rebuttal to Father. Show me evidence that America is
still number one. Father never said America should be number three; he
said it should be number one.
Is it easy to become number one in the world? It takes training and
discipline to become number one. Do you recognize that Father is not
dumb after all? Is he just ordinarily smart or extraordi
narily smart? (Extraordinarily! Applause.) Whenever Father predicted
something, it came to pass. Do you think that what Father said this
morning is probable, possible, or just remote? Why did Father predict
bigger unit ownership? It has to be; anyone can understand that. Look,
if you have a small village, with some people hungry and others
feasting every day, how long do you think it will last? There is bound
to be fighting and separation. It is inevitable. The world will become
like this. When we keep equality, equal privileges, who will complain?
Therefore, the unequally wealthy cannot stay that way forever and
The whole world first belongs to God. Groups will own the things
bigger than the individual; hundreds of millions of small groups will
have ownership. Unification Church members are forerunners, pioneers.
We are content to sleep in sleeping bags. Even Father is content to
sleep in a sleeping bag. Who will complain? Let's say we all sleep
here, with a hundred sleeping bags in this room. We all sleep the same
way, so who will complain? If we all eat from the same pot, who will
There will be a time when people will fight to be able to do the
work that needs to be done, because all we will have to do is push the
button in the computer; it's downright enjoyable, and everyone will
compete to do that. Father visited our members' plant in New Jersey. It
was so well automated, with a central console linked to the CEO's own
home. He can control it from his home if he wishes. We see that
automation will become more and more advanced, such that eventually you
don't even need to go to the workplace. By satellite, the factory can
be controlled from home. That's high tech. You may not realize it, but
that day is already here. Big corporation heads don't go to their
office every day, but they may operate by fax and telephone from
Florida or Alaska. One order can be issued automatically to hundreds
of different places, and reports from a hundred places can come to one
point. Father has things to do all over the world, and this technology
is made for him. He doesn't have to travel everywhere.
Imagine, Father issues directions from high mountains in Colorado.
Like a wizard, he can monitor a fish radar from home, and issue the
order: "Get down the net!" Father went tuna fishing a week
ago, and caught a great tuna. The captain took a successful course and
was able to save the data in the computer's memory. Father developed
this computer through TongIl, combining the loran, the radar,
fishfinder and navigator. TongIl has been selling that for
seven or eight years. That's our invention, but this was the first
time Father saw it in action. Father saw the boat follow the same
path, by the computer memory's automatic guidance, past Montauk.
Without anyone touching the controls, the boat went around the bank and
right into the slip. Father was mystified at that. There is no need
for a compass, because the loran tells you where you are every second.
Many fishermen try to return to a good fishing spot and cannot find it.
So Father told them to make this, and it works. (Applause.)
To discuss the tide or current of heart, we have taken our examples
from the physical world, because it is the one we know. But the
heartistic world is the same as the physical world. Just like the tide
in the ocean: heart moves the same way. Last week Father talked to us
about fate, in the positive sense of heavenly fate or destiny. Chun
woon. Korean language has the perfect explanation: heavenly luck,
heavenly fate. Woon means carrier. This represents "army" and
"cart." This is a vehicle, with a cover, a protection; i.e.,
a safely covered vehicle. It means to bring safely into a certain
place. A fast car carries something to a certain point in safety.
That's fate. So, no accident. Safe delivery. That is luck, or fate.
How does luck work? Luck, or heavenly fate, always follows the
heartistic current. Like the black current: if you follow it, you know
where you will go. If there is heavenly luck, that means the heartistic
current is being followed, and you're in luck. Western people might
feel that orientals are unrealistic to emphasize such things as filial
piety, patriotism and sainthood. Orientals didn't know why they were
doing those things. They simply considered it righteous. But it turns
out to have been following the heartistic current. So they were in the
heavenly fate, exalting benevolence, beauty and love.
Beauty, in the Chinese character, is composed of "big
sheep." The big sheep is the one who sacrifices himself greatly on
behalf of others. Also, in the character meaning righteous, the sheep
occupies the top position. Why the sheep? The sheep signifies
sacrifice. Thus he is righteous. Therefore the Bible symbolizes Jesus
as the lamb carrying the burdens of the world. This sheep was pierced
by the sword, sacrificed. So, Chinese is a revelatory language.
Westerners don't even know where to begin, and orientals didn't know
either. It was too wild; it made no sense. But it makes great sense to
Father. Father is the first to teach it this way.
The Chinese character for heaven shows two men, not one man. We know
already that two men, becoming one centering on love, is the essence of
the ideal of creation. Without love, they cannot make oneness. So we
have to accept the logic and reason behind the course of heavenly fate:
it travels the heartistic current, the heartistic tide. We conclude
that heavenly fate is preserved by sacrificing. By doing service for
others, we can stay within the course of heavenly fate. The general
direction of heavenly fate, therefore, is always somewhere beyond the
individual's interest. It moves towards the greater whole. This is
always a straight line, a straight direction. God will connect it back
to the individual. This straight line of heart is the safe route for
the individual to travel to reach God. From God's point of view it is
the same. Starting from God, heavenly fate moves on this line to bigger
and bigger levels until reaching the whole universe. Love is always a
straight line, and the only straight line is the line of love.
Why is love a straight line? The act of love of grandparents, of
parents, and of a young couple just beginning are the same. In the west
and east it is the same. For white and black it is the same. Eternally
it will be the same. The way they prepare food east and west are
different, but the way they love is the same. The animal kingdom, too,
is the same. Can we change it or improve it? No; this is one thing we
cannot and need not improve. That one way is true within the plant and
animal kingdoms, and man is no exception.
In the family, we need the son or daughter of filial piety. In the
nation we need the patriot. In the world we need the saint. For the
cosmic world, we need the holy son. These four levels: son and
daughter of filial piety, patriot, saint, and holy son, all are
connected by love. They have love in common. They always operate
centering on the path of love, and connect like a crystal. This is
crystallized love. Why? It is so that we can inherit the universal
blessing. By getting that blessing we are liberated; we are really
free. Being free, we become the subject, the center. Everything moves
at our will. We all want to be the center of all things, don't we?
(Yes.) You never become the center by power or by knowledge.
The contents of this center or of that center are the same. They may
be on different levels, but they have the same contents. If you bring
this center to any place, it is welcomed. The underlying concept is
"sacrificial contribution," sacrificing oneself. Heart. The
heartistic realm is where it is possible for the spiritual to come into
the physical plane, and they can unify together. This can be done only
in the realm of heart. In other words, only through love can spirit
world and physical world be connected. This vertical and horizontal
relationship is absolutely ninety degrees everywhere, and wherever it
travels, heavenly fate or fortune always follows. Wherever this perfect
joining goes, love fills the space like air fills space.
Images of Truth
In a man's face, if the angle between the line of the eyes and the
line of the nose is perfectly ninety degrees, this person is an honest
person. This is a very important vertical line. The navel should be
right on it, and it should go right down the center of the breast, and
to the reproductive organ, straight down. From the back, if there is a
straight line, that person will rise up in the world. (Father draws
vertical and horizontal lines with chalk on Col. Han's suit, down the
spine and across from shoulder to shoulder; laughter. ) You have to
laugh in a very straight way, then I know you are real. Ordinarily when
you laugh, it is a little bit twisted. The soles of shoes should be
worn out evenly, horizontally. If uneven, you'd better correct it. When
trained eyes observe these things, they can interpret the person's
future, and Father is the top of that area. (Applause.)
Father's eyes are rather small. That indicates that Father sees
things at a distance. Big eyes see only close up. This is the principle
of the camera lens, isn't it? Western people have big eyes, and they
see things which are near them very accurately. They come from pirate
ancestors, who were always moving and pioneering. So the westerners'
eyes resemble the ocean, and orientals' eyes the earth.
Which is subject, earth or ocean? (Ocean.) Ocean is subject?
Historically speaking, no one will claim the ocean is subject. Earth is
subject. If ocean were subject, then civilization would be made of
boats, built on the ocean. Human civilization started at a river, then
island, then peninsula and continent. The Mediterranean, the Atlantic,
the Pacific, in that way. So western civilization embraces every
thing and comes to the Pacific ocean and reaches the other side of
the Pacific ocean. The ocean culture is reaching to that new land in
the Asian civilization era, which is now.
Western civilization vaguely knew this trend, but was not certain
and was hesitating. So Father came and made a bridge, giving them
confidence and reassurance, to help western civilization. So each of
us wants to go to Asia, and get an Asian wife. That is the
conscientious man's feeling, because that is where the heavenly fate is
The ocean always scrapes more and more land from the shore, but the
land doesn't mind. As more is scraped, the ocean becomes shallower, and
islands rise. At beaches where erosion is severe, does the earth
protest, "Why do you nag me all the time"? It allows the
scraping, which goes on for tens of thousands of years, never resting.
The earth has tremendous endurance. Water doesn't have much endurance.
The wind blows and it rises up.
There is such a thing as "fashion," but really important
things are not subject to fashion. The western world exalts fashion,
with no tradition. The pirate world doesn't have tradition. Every day
things change. But the earth is not that way. The earth has tradition;
it is unchangeable.
China has 1.4 billion people. India, 800 million. With other Asian
countries, 3.2 billion. White people amount to only 25% of the Asian
population. That is one to four. Yellow power. If there were a war, it
could not be a nuclear war. What if it were a fistfight? Karate?
Which is more formidable, boxing or karate? Anyway, it would be one to
four. Karate is very formidable; it has a technique for taking your
opponent's guts out. So we should never think about confronting, but
Godchosen Unification Church people don't mind getting married
to Orientals; they even love it. Western women may have a better
contour compared to eastern women, but western women's skin is like
chicken skin. (Laughter.) Orientals are always softer. No oriental
women have hair on their legs, whereas western women always have to
shave. In Alaska one big western brother who is married to an oriental
woman told Father that to touch her is so good that he cannot digest
his food without touching her at least once a day. "So soft,"
he exclaimed. He was proud that no man married to a western sister
could match that feeling. He was serious, and repeated it over and over
Each one has his own heavenly fate to follow, which goes up and down
over thousands of years, never on a straight line. So the family that
is on the upper trend will later have to come down. Knowing this
principle, no one can be arrogant, because everyone who is up knows
they will have to come down. If you refuse to come down, your position
will crumble anyway. One has to come up and down. So those whose lives
are difficult now, don't worry. Always think, my day will come. And the
one whose generation has been doing well, prepare yourself and expect
to come down.
The Unification Church started from the low position, and will go
up. This is the natural way. We have been persecuted on the world
scale, therefore we will be raised up on the world scale. So who is
the greater person, President Bush or Reverend Moon? (Reverend Moon.) I
don't know. (Yes.) I don't know. How about Gorbachev and Rev. Moon?
(Rev. Moon.) What he will say and do certainly is the focus of all the
world. Do sons and daughters of the family know what Father is going to
do in the next year? (No.) Is that "no" or "know"?
What kind of men are we, "no men" or "know men"?
The latter? Then no matter how small you are now, you have a great
The current of heart or the tide of heart began from God at the
beginning of history. Since God is the center of the heartistic tide,
that tide itself is omnipotent and omniscient. It knows everything. If
you understand God's intention and dispensation centering on Divine
Principle, you know everything. Would you still have intelligent
questions? Maybe small ones, but not major questions. When we know
God's love, and that is a very secret part of God, then there is
nothing more we need to know. Do you think God likes to keep a secret?
What do you think?
Until man is perfect, there are lots of secrets, but once we are
perfect, then there are no secrets, nothing we do not know. Man and
woman also have secrets before perfection. In the past, oriental women
never exposed their legs. But now western fashion is reigning in the
orient, and they get miniskirts and so forth. Man essentially is like a
thief. He sees something good and he takes it away. Men want women to
keep many secrets; that kind of woman is more attractive to a man.
Love doesn't travel around freely; it needs to be planted in the
deeper places. So if you keep such a scanty secret of your body,
covering only a little here and there, going around in public, what is
so attractive? It is less interesting once you expose it. How exciting
and attractive when a man has never seen the bosom and skin of a woman
for so many years, and also the other way around, and how stimulating
it will be when they get married. In the western world, there are no
secrets kept. For example, the tight swimsuits men wear. It doesn't
show, but it shows. As with western statues, the subjects are undressed
and they show everything.
In order for a woman to be qualified as a bride, she should never
have seen the entire body of a man in her life. Even living in a small
room as a family, brothers and sisters are very strict, and the sisters
probably have never seen any male figure before. Until they get
married, each is so mystified. Then when they join together, the mind
and body really will tumble into oneness. Did you know that until
recently Korean married couples would never talk with each other at all
in public, on a train or in a bus? If they talked, people would look at
them as .strange, as unmannerly. When no one was looking, maybe they
would talk. Talking and laughing was unthinkable. They would hold in
all kinds of expressions. Maybe they would express those things in
Love starts from the deepest place, in privacy. That is the true
nature of love. A love king and love queen act in the most secret
place. Which do you prefer, public or secret? The most deep is secret.
Western women, is the deep one or the short one better? (Deep.) Deep
means secret, secret, secret. Which is original love, God's or Satan's?
Satan says his love is original love. Today's society doesn't know the
difference. How can you say God's love is true love? (It was first. It
is absolute.) Satan's love starts big, but diminishes, whereas God's
love starts small and becomes bigger and bigger. The satanic world
already bore its fruit. God's love is just beginning. That means that
God's love is descending from above to below.
Satan is the center of the satanic world's love. Satanic love
started from the horizontal line and below. But with God's love, there
is no horizontal line. Comparing God's and Satan's love, Satan's
horizontal love is hell, and God's love is heaven. (Father draws
extensively on the board.) Satanic love becomes smaller and smaller,
and as it does God's realm of love becomes larger and larger. Satan's
world comes down because it is self
centered. It is not centered on the whole, for the sake of everyone.
Satan's world love is such that he places himself in the highest
position and comes down. God's love is the other way. It starts small,
and the basis of love is everybody, the public. That is historical
The satanic world has borne its fruit, and has nothing more to
accomplish. Centering on what? Centering on love. The satanic world
has love, too, but something other than true love. The satanic world
starts from the highest place but becomes smaller and smaller and ends
up in hell. God's world starts small, but becomes bigger and bigger and
creates heaven. The fallen world has established love centered on the
individual, ownership centered on the individual and enjoyment centered
on the self. Everything is individualistic, including the economy.
God's dispensation is going up, for the sake of the whole. So the
individualistic way of life will inevitably come down into hell.
There's no other way it can go, given the inevitability of God's
direction. We start small, but move toward the great big world of true
love. The satanic side gets smaller, step by step losing the family,
the clan, the nation, the universe. Satan's side loses everything.
In God's world, the lower it goes, the bigger it eventually will
become, because we live for the sake of everything greater than the
individual. Therefore it is a public life. We want to stand in love,
representing the individual, family, clan, nation, world and universe.
The individual is the center, representing each level. If he has true
love, every realm of ownership is connected. The individual does not
own himself, but he owns his family, he owns his nation, and so forth.
His ownership is unlimited. On the satanic side, you started with
everything, but lost one by one by one, became narrowly
individualistically centered, and finally lost everything. With true
love you come to possess the heavenly family, clan and nation, but with
satanic love you can have none of those things.
We can see clearly that this is happening in America. No one owns
anything beyond the sphere of the self. The individual is ultimate; he
is number one. So they say they have a right to exist as an individual,
never getting married. That will never be adequate. The American
individual denies his brother and sister, his physical parents, even
the king and queen of the country, because he claims they have nothing
to do with him. But on God's side, everything has a lot to do with the
individual. I as an individual am a representative of my family, my
clan, my nation, my world, my cosmos. We must understand that this is
God's original purpose for starting the human family. God is creating
that. So when we adopt this way of life, this is what we stand to
In accordance with God's great will for this development, if some
group and eventually country does not replace the satanic way with
God's way, then the earth will come to have no meaning. Humankind will
reduce down and stop developing. That's hell. So any group and nation
which diligently works in God's way will eventually replace the satanic
way of life.
Everything looks the same, even to a confusing degree, but the
origin is clearly different. Satan started from himself as an
individual, whereas God started with everyone in mind, not Himself in
mind first. It is clearly a different beginning. So Satan must end up
in a frozen hell, and God must end up in what we call heaven. God's
plan and ideal, however, is that everyone is treated the same and ends
up in heaven. Those who stay in the individualistic realm God sends to
hell. There is only one way for all of us to be able to survive and
prosper. That way is to lead a public life. That means to invest what
we have, not to take away what others have. On Satan's side, the method
is to take away. The only way Satan can survive is for God to give him
more. But there is no way for that to happen any more.
What is the nature of history? It has been the history of indemnity.
Who paid it? Religion, religious people have been paying the indemnity.
God operated the whole dispensation for restoration by paying indemnity
through religion. So God Himself is a public being. I may be an
individual standing here, but the individual himself has no place in
God's world. I am not "I," I only exist in terms of
representing the larger levels.
An individual on the satanic side knows in his original mind that he
should represent those levels, but he has no foundation, so he has a
tremendous pain. He knows the original direction, but he has no
foundation to do it, so he has pain. Pain accompanies that way of life,
and happiness accompanies God's way of life. These are different
So God's great movement is sitting in the middle of America, a
country which is following the satanic fashion of life, and is trying
to replace this fashion in America and in the whole world. That is
Reverend Moon's activity; that is what he is preparing. We can see what
is happening in this big nation. More and more it is getting to be only
a white person's America. That can't come to be; that's not what God
wants. On God's side we go beyond racial concepts and boundaries. The
true country is the country beyond myself. In God's way of life it is
possible, because we are set to live for the sake of others. On Satan's
side they are set to live for the sake of themselves. On God's side,
each person respects and loves others, and gradually they go up. On
Satan's side, it is "me, me." Everyone pulls to themselves,
and they all gradually go down.
These are different routes. If one goes up, the other must go down.
They cannot both survive. God's historical way of true love is the
original way. This is why happiness comes as a result of living for the
sake of others. Why should that be? It is because when God started
creation, He was sacrificing Himself. He was investing everything He
had, and forgetting, and investing more, and forgetting. In this way
He started it, therefore that is the fundamental principle. It is
obvious that the other side doesn't have that. The only solution is to
quickly and effectively change selfcentered life into
publiccentered life. That is the key to the solution of the whole
In America we discovered new life, new love and new lineage by
changing the blood lineage. Where does life come from? The parents. And
we found true love, eternal love. We have veins and arteries. Veins
pull and arteries push. That comes from the pushing love and pulling
love, the love of the father and mother. Originally it was like that,
from God. The heart has to be strong; the mother has to be strong. Each
one represents the universe itself, is a small cosmos. Everything we
find in the universe we can find in each and every individual. So the
sperm and ovary are each exactly half. They meet together and make a
whole, a new individual. God's way is to exhale and inhale, meet
together and separate, get married and give birth to a child, going low
and high-God is doing this movement. The whole universe is doing that
movement. In this perspective, each one is a true masterpiece of
creation. The masterpiece of creation is the individual self.
We have billions of cells. How can they find common joy and
excitement? They can find it when true love is in action. Forty
billion cells of a man, forty billion cells of a woman-how can all
these cells join and shout out manse)? The spirit body and physical
body each have five senses, including forty billion cells on both
sides. How can we make a vibration between the two sides? What can
cause that kind of vibration? (True love.) As all cells of a man shout
out manse), then all cells of the woman have to shout out manse). Was
it perhaps because you made a great discovery and rejoiced together? Is
it invisible power? It is true love, the same true love that we are
willing to invest 100% and more for the sake of others.
Do husband and wife in your family live like that? Do you devote
everything you have to your spouse? Are you trying hard to do that?
Have you asked your child what percentage of your cells were excited in
joy when he or she was conceived? That is a practical and serious
question. We are to give birth to heavenly children, but are ours
midway children, or earthly children? We can ask the same question of
ourselves: what percentage parent am I? Am I a 100% parent, or only a
partial parent? Our children can answer what percentage of a parent
you are. Do you want to be more than a 100% parent? Your spouse, your
parents and even the entire universe want you to become that kind of
parent. We have to consider how much we inadvertently have damaged the
world and the universe. We may not realize that there is a system in
the heavenly world, which reveals what we are. It tells to what degree
our mind and body are united, our couple is united, what percentage
parent we are, and all varieties of information.
All Unification Church members desperately hope not only to become
part of the universal tide, but increasingly to propel it. Thus we want
this black current to go around and around the world and become greater
every moment. We must have this hope and purpose as Unification
members. At the same time, we must erase our satanic attributes,
leaving no trace of them. The heavenly current then will swell into the
forty billion cells of our body, and we will have to open ourselves up
to receive that in ecstasy and joy. We must gear our lives to that.
Even if we are not able to do that, somewhere in the world such a
movement must take visible shape.
If such a movement takes shape, will the human race choose to reside
anywhere else? No, only there. Are we simply thinking about launching
it, or we have been living and developing it already? Is it something
for you to jump on, or do you have to create it? (We create it.) Does
God do it for us, or do we do it, with God's help? (We do it.) Does God
have hands and feet? (No.) Even if God speaks, most people cannot hear
it. So we have to speak on behalf of God so that everyone can hear.
God's words are Divine Principle. When we speak Divine Principle, we
are God's mouthpiece.
Divine Principle has a new taste even after you have heard it a
thousand times. Even a senior member of the Unification Church who has
heard the Divine Principle more than anyone else will never get tired
of it. The more you hear it, the more you discover in it. If you've
heard Divine Principle ten times, is that enough? Every day we eat
food. Do we ever get tired of eating? Isn't it exciting to eat when you
are hungry? Hearing God's words is the same thing. We should hear them
every day, eternally, even in the spirit world. To prepare for that, we
must train ourselves by hearing them on earth first.
This is our hope when we go to spirit world, based upon what God is
like. Do you think there is a bakery in the spirit world? Or a soft
drink factory? (No.) A more honest answer is "I don't know."
How about an automobile factory or a machine factory in the spirit
world? Here you can be very proud of driving a most expensive car. But
in the spirit world what are you going to do? Are you going to eat in
the spirit world? If you had your wish, would you rather eat or not
eat? (Eat.) You can eat there, but not centering on your appetite. You
eat centering on giving love. That is heavenly law. If you are not
motivated for everyone, you will want to eat but your mouth won't
open. You will pick up food, but your hand will not be able to put the
fork into your mouth. After three tries, you will give up trying to
eat. Then how miserable you are. Centered on true love, everything is
possible, including eating good food and driving a good car in the
spirit world. Without that, nothing is possible. In the spirit world,
all you need to do is wish. If you wish for an automobile made out of
gold and diamonds, it is there. Of course, nobody wants that, because
you can travel billions of miles in a split second. The stronger your
love, the faster you can go. If you are very imaginative and have a
dream girl or man, the perfect man of your life, that person will be
there as soon as you wish, right beside you holding your hand.
Centering on true love this can happen. True love is the mainstream
concept; without it we cannot do anything.
People here and now thought that this was their paradise, but it
turned out to be hell. What can they do? It is too late to adjust.
Mankind finds itself going in the direction opposite to God. How are we
going to correct it? The heartistic tide starts from Reverend Moon,
goes to the throne of God, comes back to him and then goes around the
entire universe. In that process we let everybody join.
The spirit world works like this: if you see a nice house that you
really like, then you can walk into that house and its owner will
immediately recognize you and usher you in. "This is your
house," he will say, with great joy, "Please come in; this is
your house. You deserve it more than I." If we become sons and
daughters of God, then the immense universe will belong to us. When we
go to spirit world, we want to follow Father. Wherever he goes, we want
to go. But we cannot, because the door of our heart is too small to be
every place Father goes.
The Door of Heart
True love can travel through doors of any size, but without true
love we cannot go through the bigger doors. Those doors represent every
level, and you can go in and out at will if you accomplished that
representation on earth. If you didn't, then you cannot go in and out.
Is this discourse simply Father's dream? Is Father a dreamer, or a
practical person? This is practical in the spirit world.
How do you know Father is not making this up? (Universal law.) I
don't know. How can you prove Father is right? (Original mind.) You
need more substantiation. Is your mind making this substantiation, or
are you just nodding, agreeing with Father, saying, "You're right,
you're right?" Do you remember Father's words in the night time,
daytime, when you are out, or in a depressed mood, and do you then
become happy? Do we become happy when we remember Father's talking?
(Yes.) Then it must be true. But if onethird of the time your mind
says, "No," then Father must be lying onethird of the
time. (No.) That means that your mind is agreeing with Father all the
time? (Yes.) Father can even say that if you don't know, but you choose
to believe it, then God can bestow creative power upon you so that you
can work better. This is one way we can be greater than Father himself,
theoretically. Father knows, but even though we don't know, we believe
and do it. Father encourages you to believe it, even if you don't
know. Father guarantees it, because Father knows.
Twentytwo billion light years. We hear the words but we don't
know what it represents. Twentytwo billion light years is the
distance across the universe. That is not imagination; that is our
space. That is where we travel. If you have some people you love so
much, in the spirit world you can travel to forty different countries
in a matter of seconds and meet all the people you love. Someone you
really want to see will appear beside you instantly, from a million
miles away. In the spirit world there is no past and no future; it is
always present. A few thousand years ago is today. All of mankind was
born to be princes and princesses of that world. From this view we can
see how great all human beings are; not only us, but all human beings.
How precious life is! Suicide is unimaginable. You don't know the glory
of your own birth. How miserable it is to be ignorant of this. As a
result of the fall we lost that awareness. How miserable. Satan and
Satan's blood lineage
that's the problem. How can we uproot it? If you don't uproot it,
Satan always will follow you. Therefore Jesus taught that we have to be
born again. That means we have to die first, then be born again. That
applies to us; we have to die every day. Now we know why we have to be
Going along with the heartistic tide and love tide, I can go
everywhere, and wherever I go, it is mine. To have the new creation of
that life, we have to ask God, and it is possible for God to accomplish
that. We can correlate the forty billion cells in the human body each
to one human being, or each to one planet in the universe. It is the
same number. Can spirit travel the space between these forty billion
cells or not? How long does it take to go through all forty billion
cells? If you are electrified with true love, you can do that in a
moment; you do it even before you realize you have done it. You shout
out manse); that means you have already done it. This reality defies
the imagination; it is greater than the imagination. This kind of
miracle is taking place all the time simply for life to sustain itself
How great life is!
You are controlling your own self, your own universe. How
fascinating this is. You are the master of this great faculty of
yourself. How wonderful. In the spirit world, with the ultimate power
of true love, you can see the form of the whole universe. It looks like
an individual man or woman, and sometimes both. And the universe is
walking like an love, you can see the form of the whole universe. It
looks like an individual man or woman, and sometimes both. And the
universe is walking like an individual human being. Each person is like
one of the universe's forty billion cells. Each is God's own cell. When
God laughs, all cells laugh, and each one of us is one of them. How can
each one of us initiate the stimulation of God, to make God break into
great laughter? If I can do that, then every cell of my body will be
grateful to me for doing that to God. That is what we can be proud of.
Each individual is an individual truth body. That means that each of
us has a unique way to stimulate God. No two are the same. In the
future each of us will have the chance to stimulate God in our own way.
This is the way we can move with the rhythms of the spirit world. It is
our dream, as the object of our subject, our Father, twentyfour
hours a day, day in and day out, to find how to be a source of joy to
our Father. If we can be crazy with that desire. then we are in rhythm
with the spirit world.
All of us want to love Father, and return joy to him, don't we? But
Father arose at 4:30 this morning, and has been speaking all morning
and it is almost lunchtime. Has anyone thought about bringing something
for Father to eat? Is anyone longing to say, "Father, after the
sermon please eat this." Or, "Father, please eat this
now." Have we ever packed anything for Father to eat? Even
spiritually, have we offered Father food in spirit, that Father could
toss to the birds and the birds would enjoy? Have we ever prepared
something for Father? Yes? No? You never thought of it? Do people in
spirit world want to see you prepare something for Father, that Father
can tuck in his pocket, and later take out and eat? Doesn't the spirit
man want to make the very same offering? Who is more eager to see that
happen, we or the spirit man? The spirit man knows this possibility, so
who is more anxious to see it happen?
The spirit world man knows the past, present and future. In one
sight, he knows everything. You don't know everything. The other world
clearly understands that, and knows how to dedicate for Father, how to
serve Father well. They clearly understand; their five senses can fully
receive that stimulating power from True Parents. Until now they have
not had that experience, connected to Father's stimulating feeling.
Earth and Spirit World
Are we passinggrade students or failinggrade students'
Failinggrade students' In what position can God use you? None. If
we go to spirit world as we are now, we will have to wait for thousands
of years. For a long time you will be surrounded by your relatives and
children, asking you why you did not go that hopeful way. For a long
time you will be in that state, which is not so easy. Therefore we have
to accomplish everything while we are on earth. The world is like nuts
and bolts. The nuts and bolts have to go together at the same time, and
have to fit. If they don't fit, they will be expelled by the force of
We have a onetime opportunity with life here on earth. On earth
our spirit has to grow properly. Compared to our eternal lifetime, our
life on earth is one dot in space, one dot long. It is too short. It is
not important. But how can I go over my lifetime for the sake of spirit
world? Everyone should adopt that kind of mainstream mind. Standing in
that center point, you can control everything, occupying everything
with one centered mind. Otherwise you cannot complete yourself, make
complete characteristics. Do you follow? Without going through the
heartistic tide, we must not go to spirit world.
When I cry, heaven cries with me. When I feel encouraged, heaven
also feels encouraged. We have to establish this kind of relationship.
The only way to do it is to work for the sake of others, to invest with
sacrifice. That is the only way. That is the loyal way. A great man's
life is a life of denying himself, and living in such a way that God
takes pity upon him throughout his entire lifetime That kind of life
creates a vacuum, and high pressure moves into that lowpressure
area. Those are natural phenomena. I have to create the low-pressure
zone of love, so that everyone, even God, can come to me. The only way
to do that is to deny myself. That will create that place of vacuum.
The high place comes in automatically, automatically makes a current.
That is heavenly fate.
White American eyes say that you do not like black people. Your eyes
shouldn't say that Instead, we have to quickly change ourselves, we
have to say that blacks appear more lovely to me than do other white
people. Out of genuine love, we have to say that if everyone is leaving
some dirty, miserable job, I will clean that up myself Loving parental
heart always goes first to the most suffering children. Likewise,
through the heartistic tide, we have to travel to help all the needy
people. We must make them like ourselves. The world may sneer and
persecute us, even though we are doing those good things. But we must
persevere through that and see the day of victory.
Heaven and spirit men will always protect a man of God. They will
cover him like a cloud: that abundantly and that close. That kind of
person may not be able to make his own foundation. But the spirit
world and heavenly fate will prepare the foundation for him, in his
place. So he is losing everything, giving everything away, not building
anything for himself, yet someone else is building a foundation for
him. This is why saints and holy men who live selfless lives have other
people gathering together to build things for them.
How about Father? Would he follow heavenly fate, or will heavenly
fate follow Father? (Heavenly fate will follow Father, because he makes
it.) How about God? God follows heavenly fate, or heavenly fate follows
God? It follows God. Why? Because heavenly fate wants to follow true
love. Wherever there is true love, heavenly fate follows. True love is
that great. Father went to Danbury, but in Danbury Father prepared all
things for the sake of the world to come. Think: Father was put in the
prison by the people he loved, not by those he hated. Do you think
Father gave one small prayer of complaint or damnation? (No.) How do
you know? We may not know, but heavenly fate knows what Father did. So
the heavenly fate always comes around Father and protects him. It
protects true love and the path of true love. So, after Father came out
of Danbury, America changed its course for the better, didn't it? Not
for worse, but for better.
Seven years from 1985 [the year of Father's release from Danbury] is
1992. Father sees that by the completion of this seven years there will
not be a soul in America who opposes Reverend Moon and what he does. If
someone opposes, it means he does not know Father, and in order to come
to know him first he first has to oppose, because he heard so many
rumors. In any other case, anyone who opposes Father after 1992 will
have fear come into them, and their mouth will be twisted. That day
will surely come. Gorbachev is an intelligent, wise person.
We must live the kind of life for which heaven has sympathy, and
upon which heaven takes pity. If I get so tired and exhausted, God will
come near me and try to give consolation. We have to lead the way of
life that can move even God. You may need eight hours sleep but only
have ten minutes because of that way of life. If so, more rest will
result in that ten minutes than in eight hours. Father has been showing
that to us; he has literally been living without sleep. He went to
sleep at 2:30 this morning, and had to wake up so early, to prepare for
what he has to do today. Do you think God will say, "Go ahead, my
son, take some rest"? Or that He cannot say that? He cannot say
it; therefore God has to protect Father. So, nobody can blame Father or
slander him in the spirit world, because he is living a life which
merits such sympathy.
When some undesirable thing is about to happen, Father's body knows
what is coming. Who tells him? A person with that kind of ability can
do world scale ventures. If you don't have that sensitivity, then you
lack that protection. And the world is wicked. So, the point is that we
should become people who can make good use of the heartistic tide. We
should not be ignorant of the existence of the heartistic tide. We must
make use of it. When you have one righteous prayer, then God will wake
up to His senses. We should work hard to prepare to give such a prayer
The Unification Church is the only fit place for such people. But
have we ever lived like that? Have we connected to this heartistic
tide? We go up and down, circling the globe many times even in one
day-are we living that way of life today, as Unification Church
members, as true religious people? The heartistic tide is traveling
that much. Are we on it or apart from it? If we are apart from it we
become stagnant and rotten, and our spiritual life will reduce to
nothing. Are we flowing? Are our spiritual lives flowing on the
heartistic tide, or not? You must become a subjective entity. You
started from your own village and on that heartistic tide you will go
around the world and come back, and the people all will recognize you.
You want to travel the same path that your beloved one travelled, don't
you? Do you know that Belvedere soon will become a mecca for all
religious people, to see what Father did here? They will want to trace
the fact that Father stood here, the fact that Father spoke to the
world from here, and his path, his places, where he spent the most time
and what he did there.
Do you think people will want to visit the court house where
Father's case took place? (Yes.) Will they hail the American
government, or will they denounce and loathe the government of that
time? Loathing will come from their mouths, because they will know.
How about Danbury? Will it be the place of shame or of pride? (Shame.)
But Unification Church members will establish it as a shrine, as a
Mecca, as a holy ground.
The Principle explains this very easily. Because of the heartistic
tide, they will respect it and be drawn to it. Have you been to the
ground in Alaska where Father caught salmon and halibut? Do you think
Father loves fishing so much as to fish the Alaskan waters day in and
day out, year in and year out? Is it because Father makes money out of
that? Twenty million lives go to spirit world a year; sixty thousand a
day. Through fishing, Father dedicates his heart to those people. He
does that with a saturated heart, with high intensity. Nothing can
bring high intensity as much as fishing. Then the heavenly fate will
draw all those who follow the ocean to follow Father.
Father is thinking about crossing the Pacific on a small boat, the
smaller the better. The saga of the brave spirit of the Unification
Church will thunder around the world. Especially for the young
generation. So Father had a fiftytwo foot boat built, with
oversized tanks to carry enough fuel to travel to Hawaii in one
stretch. It doesn't do great speed, maybe 14 to 16 knots. It may take a
month to get there. The Pacific Ocean is a long way. Do you want to
come along with Father? (Yes! Let's go!) After three days, complaints
will start coming. Women wouldn't even want to come near there.
We have to invest heart. Father has never missed giving a Belvedere
Sunday Sermon when he was at East Garden. Father set the record. Many
people living in New York fail to come to Belvedere. Those who have
attended Belvedere every week, raise your hands. (No one.) The
aggregation of Father's speaking time in America is much longer than
any other minister's lifetime of preaching. Father spoke more words. In
the spirit world computer it is recorded without mistake: how many
hours, minutes and even seconds. Is it more difficult to speak or to
listen? Thus, already Father is winning over you.
You may think, "Father, you have great words, but I wish your
sermon would come to a close now." But Father's heart is to give
one more word, because that one word may start a new life in one
person. Father sometimes thinks that if there were no watches, then he
could speak all day and pour out my heart and get away with it.
(Laughter and applause.) In the dispensation and in the world of heart
there is so much to say. That means Father is that much closer to the
will of God. Father is intelligent enough to give the conclusion
effectively in five minutes. It doesn't take four hours to arrive at
the conclusion. Father thinks he could even do it in three words. Wah
wah wah; that's the end of the sermon. So, plant a lot of heart
wherever you go.
Father used to go to the Holy Ground and pray for the sake of
America. He doesn't do that anymore, because already America is so
indebted to Father that there is not enough time for America to repay.
If he gives more, then they will only need more time to repay. Do you
Now Father has to use his time and dedication for the sake of North
Korea; he has to pour out the same heart and same dedication there.
Will Kim Il Sung love Father or hate Father? (Love Father. Father
laughs.) Really? We wish. But Kim Il Sung is the head of Satan. Now
Father is about to save Kim Il Sung. Just three years ago, Kim Il Sung
and Gorbachev gathered together a team of twenty five Red Army cadres
to assassinate Father. That same Gorbachev has embraced Father.
Therefore, Father will help him and save him. The same can happen with
Kim Il Sung. So through Moscow, through Beijing, Father is trying to
save Kim Il Sung. Father is exerting a lot of power to save him;
that's why Kim Il Sung travels a lot now. Father is watching carefully.
Kim will come to a halt, and he will either bite at Father or he will
just plain surrender to him. One of these will take place. Father will
not let him bite, for Kim's own sake, so Father is giving a lot of good
bait. Father has all kinds of bait. (Laughter.) That's true. Father has
manpower, has economic power, has high technology power, everything.
So we should either push or pull the heartistic tide. We should not
go around it. The world is going to revolve around Father now. We too
should revolve around Father. With that, heaven will begin. Unless the
heartistic tide travels, heaven will not begin. Father must make that
happen. The salty water has to come to the fresh water. Salty water
makes a saltwater atmosphere; fresh water makes a freshwater
atmosphere. A hot tide makes a hot atmosphere. Otherwise we cannot
build heaven on earth. we cannot influence the atmosphere. How can we
make that atmosphere? Father made that atmosphere for the first time,
God made the animal world, then man. After that, God made the
horizontal world, and after that it is finished. Man connected upward,
and after that he filled up outer space. Two worlds, so that man has
dual characteristics now. One characteristic is the horizontal
characteristic; one characteristic is the vertical characteristic.
Combined, these make the dual characteristics, or double
characteristics. The vertical purpose is the public purpose, becoming
bigger and bigger. The horizontal is the individual purpose. So there
are dual purposes. The horizontal way represents the body. The vertical
represents the mind. The mind stands on the public side every time, but
the selfcentered mind follows the body. The true mind accuses the
body. The body never follows the commands of the mind. This results in
the mind losing, every time. Isn't that true? Heaven is like that. God
in heaven is investigating the earth, continually forever.
The mind doesn't say that it is tired. The body takes that bad
position, and the mind immediately commands, "Don't do that!"
The mind doesn't sympathize with tiredness. Every night at midnight,
your body is taking action in a bad way. "What are you doing? Stop
it!" the mind commands. But the body doesn't follow; it doesn't
hear, crying, "What did you say? What did you say?" The body
is going another way, with what? With Satan. Then you lose every time.
Make the vertical direction, that steep direction. That is the mind's
purpose: to be steep. No matter how bad the body is, the mind should
take action in a different direction. The mind's place is vertical-all
the time. That is the mind's original place. So the mind can command
the body. The mind is like God. God stands in the vertical place, every
time, correcting the bad things, commanding. It's the same situation.
Do you understand? This is the original mind, vertical. The body has
the individual purpose. The mind is the public purpose, taking the
bigger way every time. The mind says you have to live for the family,
not for yourself. The family lives for the tribe. The tribe lives for
the country. The country lives for the world. The world lives for the
cosmos, and the cosmos for God. Bigger and bigger.
So the center is love. Do you want to connect to the place of bigger
love? Everybody says, "Yes." The individual invests in the
family, the bigger realm. The family invests in the bigger realm of the
tribe. We want to do the same with the world, with the cosmos and with
God. That is the ultimate point of love; that is what man wants, his
final purpose. Isn't it? (Yes.) All the time we are thinking, "I
am living for love. I was born for that purpose. All my life I am going
on that ultimate way." No one can change or deter those who go
that way. All humankind wants to go that same way. Past and future
desire to go the same way. Spirit world and earth go the same way,
centering on the desire to live the life of true love. Without true
love you cannot make completion. Do you understand? So the human being
must connect with action; that is the heartistic current. That current
is the connection with God. The action is love. That is the tide, or
We should be born in love, live in love and die in love, and go over
everything in love. Through this condition I will create this tide.
From this moment on I will live like this. All Unification Church
members should live like this. Those who pledge, please raise your
hands. At ease, please. Let us dedicate our prayer.
