REVEREND SUN MYUNG MOON
THE MAINSTREAM AND
POINT OF ORIGIN
OF DISPENSATIONAL HISTORY
- PART II

Translator - Col. Sang Kil Han
Is the topic of Father's sermon this morning the same as last week? Do
you remember the sermon that Father didn't finish? What was the title?
The Mainstream and Point of Origin of Dispensational History. That
main stream is actually not a string but a stripe. Like the American flag which
has red and white stripes. How many stripes are there on the American flag?
[Thirteen.] Including Jesus with his disciples there were thirteen. Why does
the American flag have thirteen stripes? Father believes they represent
Jesus Christ and his twelve disciples. That is a great original starting
point. You never thought like this, did you? There are fifty states now,
but that is not the limit. How many more states would you like to add?
Would you mind 100 states? You couldn't add on by fighting, but voluntarily,
in search of love. Because they want deep love, other states would come to
America and join. When it becomes big, you will sort it again and then it
will continue to increase. That would be nice. Center on God and combine
horizontally with True Parents and from there multiply many children.
Expand into a big family. From there a family grows into a tribe and a tribe
into a nation, a nation into the whole world and then spirit world connects
into that and makes one. What kind of stream combines into one? What kind
of stripe combines into one? When two can combine into unity, they cannot
be separated. What kind of power and contents, what kind of love originated
to make things combine into one? That's the problem.
Everyone likes power. Power emerges when the center is one. To have power
there must be one center. The characteristics and attributes of power go up
and become big, but it does not permeate horizontally. Love power is good,
it is number one. All things melt with it. Love knowledge is good. Love
money is good. It could go on forever and everyone would welcome it. Take
out love and everything separates.
How many states does the United States have now, fifty? The Hawaiian
Islands are also a state aren't they? In Hawaii, Anglo-Americans are
a minority. Who is the majority? Orientals. Of those who go to Hawaii,
many come back because the majority there is not Anglo. Father wanted to
find out if there is any disharmony there. Father decided to settle there
to make harmony among the people.
Reverend Moon has power, doesn't he? He has knowledge, too, and money
too! But how can all those things be combined into one? What kind of origin
can combine those three branches? Only God's true love. What an amazing,
great thing this is within me! Within God! We have to know that. There
are many people here; we all have to learn this. After learning we have to
bequeath everything. For knowledge, power, money and true love, it is all the
same. Centered on true love we can connect everything. If you follow this
way with every kind of people, there is no arguing. Everything welcomes
you. The original world has that kind of purpose. Centering on true love,
everything automatically unites. Do you understand?
Centering on the American country, the flag has thirteen stripes.
The center is Christ and the center of Christ is God. What is God's center?
Not knowledge. That is not the gospel way or saving way. Knowledge does not
have the power to save. Through true love's dwelling place, the saving way is
opened. You don't need to teach that, the connection is always there, forever,
with true love. Love cannot be separated from its result. Any pieces that are
united through love cannot be separated. If one cell is here, love power is
following it. Why doesn't it escape? Love pulls in and makes things embrace
into one. Love has that kind of power in any activity. Do you understand?
Would you like Father to give you the whole sermon in English?
Your distance to Father becomes less then, you cannot go around it.
Looking at the American flag we see the stars are white and some of
the stripes are white. The red stripes are like a stream of blood. The
white color represents the right wing and the red color represents the left
wing. Altogether there are thirteen centering on God and Jesus' love. What
kind of personality do they have? Love personality. Do you understand? What is
God? God is the vertical True Parents. What was the point of Jesus' mission? To
become the horizontal True Parents, to make vertical and horizontal completely
combine into one point, one dot.
The original point of combining is only one dot. Within it, everything
is included. That is the original root of everything. The center root is
then connected to the center trunk and the center bud grows from there. That
connects to true love. Every person has that original root. You have that
sense. The extension that is inherited from generation to generation is
that bud. Do you understand? Every existence has that kind of root, trunk
and bud. That is one bud. It connects everything. The trunk is absolutely
straight and vertical, connecting to support the horizontal development. The
horizontal growth is going up and up, not going down. Every branch is growing
up, up, up, up, up. There are branches in low places, middle places and in
the highest place, centering on the trunk. Every branch combined with that
trunk takes the same direction. All branches together make a circle. Why? All
life elements make a circle in the tree. It is like blood veins circulating
through the body, which move in a circle. That is the element of life essence
forever. It has the same structure and contents throughout all humankind. All
humankind has the same construction.
Father often thinks while looking at the flag that it would be very nice
to have 160 stars. If Americans listen to what Father says and live by it
they can attain 160 stars. What do you think? Would it be nice? [Yes.] The
most important question here is, can blacks and whites in the outside world
Branches are not perfectly straight, they are shaped more in an arc.
Why is that? It is so they will go around back to the root. The magnetic
field is like this also. The bud is here. When the tree dies and decays where
does it start dying, from the root or from the top? [From the top.] Then it
comes down. Right here is where they turn back to earth. If all living things
don't become like that, the next generation cannot come. They absorb all the
nutrients from the past generation. They inhale and exhale. Even in walking
we use both legs, one step after another and keep a balance. Love is right at
the center. If man is the right foot, woman is the left foot. What is your
choice? Do you women want to be the right foot or the left foot? [Left foot.]
Really? What about American women? Are you walking for the same objective
and same purpose, not just "my" purpose? For women it is a little
less strain to be the left foot rather than the right. In other words, a
man always has to bear the center of the weight and direction. When they go
they tend to go around. That is why when you're lost in the desert, though
you mean to go straight, you always move in a circle. This is how you go
astray. Everything is in motion.
Women are smaller in stature because man is the center, and they have
to go along with him. If they were equal in size it would be difficult for
a woman to go along with a man. Women, being smaller, will always be behind
when she walks with a man. If a man wants to balance her he has to go around
in a short diameter. Father has only been talking about these small and
menial things and it has already taken fifteen minutes.
So, we absolutely need thirteen stripes. The Western world believes thirteen
is the worst number. Why? Because of Jesus' death on the cross. That was when
man lost hope. The number thirteen has been completely occupied by Satan,
not God. God was chased out and Satan came to occupy everything. So we will
kick him out again and makes this America's favorite number. We will again
center it on God.
America is a Protestant, independent country. It is the only such country
in the world. In the past, America was dependent on the English. The English
occupied everything, but George Washington was against that. Washington,
America's leader, was against the king. That means betrayal. Do you
understand? To betray means to go astray, go sideways, not following the
mainstream. He said, "We have to take action and make a revolution
against the old system. We have to go another way." That is what
Washington, the leader, proclaimed. It caused such terrible fighting. How
serious the situation was at that time. It was seemingly hopeless. How could
they stand up and defeat all of England's navy and soldiers? This is a strange
ambition. Anyone who was not God-centered couldn't do it. God sent Washington
to save this country. America was the first nation built by God. This was
a new start for an ideal nation. One nation under God. However, the final
purpose is not one nation under God, but one world under God. American
people don't know that. One world under God is God's ideal. American has a
powerful foundation standing on the deeds of many countries. People from
other countries came to America for the purpose of finding one nation under
God. Man cannot accomplish that centering on himself or his own value. He
can't have the concept of occupying everything. So someone was sent to break
through this barrier; that is Reverend Moon's activity. One nation under
God is God's viewpoint and will.
This is a big problem. America is standing on a high level, but now America
has to be connected to a global position. Other countries must follow, to make
what? To make one world under God. One nation under God is not enough. That
has been finished. After that the nation has to go up to the world level but
American people don't know that. At the time of the second advent that door
will be opened. At that time we must deny everything. All personal things
have to be denied; the family system has to be denied, the nation has to deny
everything, the world also has to go the way of denial. What is happening
inside America is in accordance with that phenomena. American young people
have no concept of parents. They don't have the concept of ideal husband
and wife. They have no concept of the nation or the world. It is a vacant
place. Why has this occurred? Who made this phenomenon? God did. The time is
coming when everything will be completely denied. God knows that. Everything
will be denied; sexual denial, man-woman denial, parents-children denial,
nation denial, race denial. This will be the terminal point. All day long
people will think about that "hippie" activity.
Men take off one cover, women two covers and say "I want to go
streaking." This is shameful. God originally looks at that routine
circle shape. You know that at three years old. You understand man and woman
look different. You know, "Man has something like this and woman has
something like that." You know which group you belong to. Every baby
understands this. When they reach twenty years old, women's bosoms are big and
their hips are wide. All the time men have wide shoulders and are so strong.
Their hips are narrow. Men and women in birthday suits, completely naked
forever. But separation cannot make an eternal foundation.
Why do we need four angles and a rounded circle? Think about this idea.
Your mouth can open into a circle. Everything has a very round shape.
Especially round is a woman's body. Artists draw woman's body, using a
model. The shape is a good shape; round. Everything wants to touch that
available, beautiful thing. Don't they? Because of women's hips, they walk
like this. [Laughter.] Their hips are much too heavy. They make a balance
with the center this way. They have to do that or they fall down. So their
hips swing from side to side. Father is talking about variety.
The thirteen stripes are an important concept in America. How do you like
that? Do you like this number thirteen? Until now the number thirteen has been
bad. From now the restoration of the number thirteen is originated, and it
will come back into the viewpoint of God's perspective. The number thirteen
is number one. In the Orient, the number four is a very bad number. Six is
also a bad number. It is Satan's number. Why is four bad? Satan took away
and occupies the four position foundation. Orientals really take four as an
ominous number. That means true love was lost.
From the beginning, what did the eye see? Bad parents. Humankind has seen
bad parents only. They have smelled bad parents only, felt and touched bad
parents only. They have only known the bad parents' contents. The original
mind at our root doesn't like that. The foreign root was founded by Satan.
God created centering on true love. That original love is God's
dwelling place. Once it is set up, nothing can cause the separation of
this original power within me in the deepest place. Do you understand the
deepest place? What if there were one cover, two covers, four covers over
everything? With such covers you cannot make an influence on others. God
doesn't like that. Originally it was to be very small. Instead, Satan rotated
the body and gave it expansion, expansion, expansion until it surrounded the
original mind. Satan says, "You, humankind, cannot cover again. I will
occupy and surround all four corners, everything. From here I will make all
humankind belong to me." So instead of God, Satan has become king. He
imitated God's creation, didn't he? You have to know that. Your eyes are
Satan's eyes. Your nose is Satan's nose. You inherited everything, all five
senses from Satan. That's true.
How can we deny the five senses? In the religious world we were told don't
see prosperity or beautiful sights. Don't look at anything outside. Deny
everything. Turn around 180 degrees. Kick out yourself, kick out the nation,
kick out all the world and original things too.
This is absolutely the terminal time for humankind, the time for
denial. "There is no God." Satan made that concept of atheism
and used it. Do you understand? The thief on Jesus' right represented the
Christian world and ultimately, the entire religious world. The thieves
are fighting. One side is the powerful political side. One side has less
power. Constantly political power has killed religious people. Why? Satan's
power surrounded the mind. This is shameful. Don't activate it again. Satan's
power doesn't permit growth. This is the religious viewpoint. The separation
of mind and body started the fighting within humankind. Why? The original
ancestors had two owners or subjects. On one side was Satan, standing on
the foundation of flesh. That is his root. The original root of humankind
was created there. The external became a plus. Inside was a plus, too,
and they came against each other. Do you understand?
The absolute God doesn't have an opposite side. Originally the flesh body
was to follow the opposite side, the mind, which is standing in the plus
position. That was to be the way of the original human ancestor. After the
fall, the human ancestors went completely against God's way. It was not God's
way, but Satan's way. Everything belonged to Satan, but today there is an
internal stripe connecting, a thin stripe. It pulls back automatically. So
how can they deny, making that a vacant place, a zero place? The string
to pull the body is there. The flesh body has to be denied. It is too
weak. Deny the individual personality, the family personality, the nation,
everything. Take the fast way, the way of agony. Satan doesn't like that. Satan
wants enjoyment. Like a grasshopper, dancing and singing, "Enjoy the
world, all four corners and everything; full up our subject world." It
is like the story of the ant and grasshopper. Americans have the attitude of
the grasshopper. They like dancing the twist. Twisting is not the straight
way. Twisting is twisted! Satan is represented by a snake. It is the crooked
way. The snake's body is wound up with the tail, the middle and the head
all going a different way. But Satan's purpose doesn't have any possessions.
Now, American people don't possess anything, they have lost everything. That
is the last of Satan's phenomena, now going on all over the world.
Here AIDS is a very fearful word. That is the free sex world's most
fearful disease. How can it be denied? If we go back to the original love
and sexual place, AIDS will disappear. That is good news for Unification
Church. The Unification Church has to proclaim this information about the
sexual organ. Make a revolution in the sexual world. No free sex. Connect
to God's original love, to that foundation. In there, love is standing
in the vertical position. Do you understand? First set up that vertical
point, then you can make that horizontal branch, the children. Do you
understand? Children; big one, small one, middle one. American people don't
have this kind of vertical sexual concept. Everything is horizontal, even
shaking hands. In the morning they greet everyone, "Good morning,"
everywhere. That's good phenomena but it needs to be centered on God. This
kind of phenomena is centered on Satan.
All over the American country God looks down and thinks how miserable
a situation this is. "Good morning", "Good morning",
making friends and after that automatically taking a kiss, soon dancing
and touching the sexual place. This is completely a sex-centered world.
Married husbands and wives have no tradition of God. They need to make a
foundation. You need to understand that phenomena so clearly. Don't make
any connection between boy and girl. Don't touch hands. A boy thinks,
"I am a boy and you are a girl." What is the final connecting
purpose? What is the terminal point? To kiss and touch that third point. That
is why the Unification Church does not permit that. Don't touch until you
marry. After marriage, how much do you invest touching that hand? You want
that meeting after marriage. You become so strong, completely united into one
forever. Parents cannot separate that kind of man and woman. Even a beautiful
woman or handsome guy cannot separate that man and woman. That is hopeful,
true love. It possesses a vertical underground axis. Do you understand?
Once you take that axis position, no one can move you away from it. If you
move out you fall down. It is absolutely straight. The absolutely straight
way is such a pitiful place. It is such a lonely place. You have to have
the horizontal. Make this horizontal way the global way. On the left hand,
right, front, everywhere. Can any people touch your deep place.? No, no, no!
Never forget. Cover those things with the round surface. Standing on the
vertical alone is so lonely so God gave us horizontal love. A global surface
is the ideal place. Why? If you kick a soccer ball, it rolls everywhere
until it stops. Every place can establish the vertical position. I can make
that vertical position any place. That is a peaceful place. It is a place of
equalization. Do you understand? It is a harmonizing place. No one can deny,
saying, "Don't take the vertical." At that time take the vertical
and immediately everything will flow to the horizontal. What can take that
kind of initiative? The true love center can do that. If Reverend Moon takes
that true love position, the whole universe becomes vertical centering on God.
If we put God on top we immediately go the vertical way. Everybody can do
that. Do you understand?
We need both the vertical and horizontal forever. Both have to make a
circle. That is their purpose. All is harmonized and unified in a revolving
place. We need to take this small axis position and automatically everything
will make harmony, immediately the vertical position will appear. At that
time, how proud you will be, "At this time the universe combined with
me, follows me, connected into one. Who is the center? Not the universe, but
me!" How wonderful! This is ideal existence! Do you understand? Without
that phenomena, action cannot take place anywhere. But true love can do that.
You have this stripe in your deepest original mind. But you don't think
about it, you always forget. You have forgotten everything. By what is
Satan's power terminated? Repentance and change. You have to know that.
The fallen generation belongs to Satan. Your eyes belong to Satan's eye,
your sense of smell is Satan's, your mouth is talking Satan's words, your
hearing too belongs to Satan. All your five senses are hitting your mind's
ideal point and trying to take it into Satan's selfish world. That fighting
has continued all through history. Until now that fighting didn't stop. We have
to stop it there! From this terrible place we have to show humankind real hope.
Many varieties of religion exist on earth but they don't know that. The
original mind didn't know that. How can they solve the original mistake that
resulted in the fighting we still have today? Only one person knows-Reverend
Moon, and until now, he has not been so well thought of. Some rumors have
been told about me, "Reverend Moon is very bad. Moon has a mafia. The
leader of the 'M' mafia is Reverend Moon."
In America is there any more fearful religious leader than Reverend
Moon? Only one guy is standing here making problems all over the free
world. "How can we cast him out?" people ask. If Reverend Moon
is cast out, automatically God will follow him. Why? Reverend Moon has
the vertical point of view. If he moves here automatically God follows his
position. Otherwise God breaks down, and has no powerful foundation. Reverend
Moon goes everywhere and so God goes everywhere, making harmonized action.
Why? Through true love power. It is the shortest way. God and Reverend Moon
connect in true love every time. The shortest line is only the vertical
line. Do you understand? Only the vertical line.
We need to have ninety degrees. Ninety-one degrees is different from
the shortest vertical line. True love is the original short cut to the
vertical. That means that God and humankind's true love center is forever
combined into one. Not just any kind of people can be permitted to occupy this
point. This point is the true love point forever. Reverend Moon is moving
following the vertical line. Reverend Moon came to America and God followed
him here. If Reverend Moon leaves America, American Unification members think,
"Oh Father is not here, the whole atmosphere feels vacant, zero."
You feel that way. You think, "This place is too melancholy. It is too
lonely. I cannot express it clearly. Why do I feel this way in my mind? I
cannot move around or feel freedom." You shrink. Is that true? You
ask, "When will Father come back here?" and you start counting.
One or two days pass, one month or six months pass and still I don't come
back. Soon you will think, "I will go visit Father's place." Your
mind thinks that way, doesn't it? When Reverend Moon goes back to Korea, many
people will think they want to go there too. You have that kind of mind,
you cannot control it.
American people will tell you, "Don't do that!" America is
powerful and will make many obstacles, but it won't matter, your mind can fly
over them to go back to Reverend Moon. All Unification members have the mind
to make one with the center, Reverend Moon. That is a strange phenomena,
isn't it? Outside people cannot understand the deepest meaning so their
conclusion is, "Reverend Moon is a mysterious guy." Every day
they meet but don't want to separate. Is that true or not? I don't know,
but you know well what Father is talking about!
You cannot attain that position just through education. When you strive
toward perfection you are automatically connected in that way. That stripe
within your mind is following that effort. No matter how powerful a nation
may be, or even if the power of the cosmos wants to break that stripe,
they cannot. That is Reverend Moon's thought.
The American government wants to cut this stripe and separate
everything. But it cannot, no matter how sharp the sword. Trying to cut
that stripe is like trying to cut a rubber band. It will just bounce off. No
matter how long one tries, the rubber band will always spring back to it's
original place. No problem. God understands the true love rubber band. God
Himself cannot cut it. So God's concluding position is, "I will follow
you forever. You are a true love rubber band. No matter how strong a power
I have within me, I cannot cut it. This is the most valuable thing, I will
protect that." God Himself will absolutely obey and respect this true
love rubber band.
Ask God, "God what do You need?" He will say, "I
don't need money. There is enough money everywhere." God can make
every creature. Using His power He can make a diamond mountain or a gold
mountain. He says, "I don't need that kind of high place, do you want
that? You need a golden diamond field everywhere but I don't need that."
Answer clearly. Does God need money? [No.] God can make anything He needs. In
Korea, the word 'mani' sounds like money. The sound is good. It means much,
so mani money has a good sound-"much, much money." So absolutely
God needs money, right? [No.]
God made man and woman as subject and object. Man is on the right side
and woman is on the left side. There are two kinds of parallel lines.
What connects the two? How can these two separate lines be joined in a way
that will not allow them to separate forever? Automatically a magnetic power
exists. The south pole automatically feels drawn to where? The north pole. The
north's magnetic power is drawn to the south. Why do they respond in such a
way? That is the essence of the original existence. Man is walking this way
and woman is walking this way. When they meet, they feel excitement. Who is
stimulating them? All day they concentrate all six senses. Man looks over to
the left and says, "Oh, woman!" and a woman looks over to the right
and sees, "Oh man!" Automatically their bodies also recognize each
other. From there they make unity at three points. On this straight line they
make one dot and three points. This line connects two points. Who can make
three points? Who can create three dots and set them up in the universe? Can
man himself do that, set up three points and surroundings anyplace? No,
he cannot do that.
So man stands on the right side and the woman on the left. Then starting
at the same time they move toward the third place or meeting point. That
meeting point automatically becomes the center. The woman will say, "I
found you are a great guy."
The man will say, "You're more than a great guy. Meet me immediately
on the left side." Their eyes, their feelings, their smell, their
talk will mingle and unite, circling faster and faster and faster. Their
hearts will make a powerful pounding sound. That sound will be heard all
over the universe. The universe will say, "You are making the start of
an ideal male and female. How wonderful that concept is. I like that!"
That sound will automatically be broadcast like an electric wave which can't
be seen. It makes a powerful stripe as it hits every cell. Each cell will
say, "That's not bad!" They will feel intoxicated and it will be
good. Think about that. The man will touch the woman and say, "That's
not so bad," as he touches her mouth, her ear, her whole face. Touching is
good even down to the deepest place. You feel a strange power. The first touch
feels good. The second time an overwhelming feeling covers you. Then you go
on. Sensitive touching satisfies the hand's life-style. If you are touching
everywhere, a wife will ask her husband, "What is that? There are two
things with something in the center. That's strange. What's that? It's like
a ball." Touching that gets a woman excited. Even looking at it is good.
The smell is good. Touching that one place is good.
Women have a secret place. If a woman welcomes you then everything
opens. Night time, day time, any time you will be welcomed. Man and woman
can be completely united through their sexual organs. A man has the giving
place. The woman is the receiving place. Where can a man and a woman be
connected into one? Through the sexual organs. At that time a woman and a
man complete one circle. Next, they make a circle to cover all four corners
of the world- one circle for the east, one towards the west, another south
and one covering the north. With this circle becoming bigger and bigger,
all the vacancies will be taken up. Eventually it will become global making
every variety of circle. What a wonderful feeling, to have every corner
of the earth filled up with that kind of circular relationships. You have
that kind of mission-to fill the world with men and women guided by such a
concept of true love. Do you understand?
You eventually all have to pass away to the spiritual world, don't you?
Anyone who says, "I'm not going to the spiritual world," raise
your hand. No one. A small river runs down and down toward the sea, creating
a current and joining with others to make bigger and bigger branches of the
river. Soon they join the mainstream and at last join the ocean. Water that
joins a small stream eventually goes to the ocean. The black current travels
for 5000 miles making a circle. Did you know that? It makes a circle-having
the same basis for universal existence. All things there harmonizing with
the opposite or subject position. Complete subject-object positions cannot
disappear. Divine Principle teaches that kind of concept, doesn't it?
So every person has that stripe deep within them. A woman's stripe can
combine into one with a man's, and that way it becomes strong. So strong it
cannot be cut by anything. This is sovereignty, power. Nothing can cut it. You
must obey it and follow it. You cannot separate forever. Men and women have
that kind of stripe, that kind of thread which is always connected with God.
How can you connect into one? Not with money, not power, not knowledge.
Only centering on true love. Don't forget! Both men and women have that
kind of power to build a nation of true love, harmonizing and creating
equalization. They can create a peaceful world, a world full of happiness. An
Lacking that true love, how can you make excitement? How can you make a
peaceful world or a world of happiness? You cannot do that. Only centering
on true love can you connect everywhere.
If, centered on these clothes this morning, I connect forever with my true
love partner, then how precious is even one piece of that clothing. Connected
with love, everything becomes valuable. If you lack true love, no matter
how beautiful a diamond ring may be, it has no value. Arrange yourself every
day to have a beautiful appearance, but never lacking true love. Otherwise
all those precious diamond rings or jewelry can just be cast out. Is that
true? American women know it. No one wants to recognize someone lacking
love. That sense is real in me, in the family, in society, and in the world.
We need a true love axis spinning in a global fashion. The ideal position
is only one place. All the created world and human kind can be connected
into one point by true love, and settle there in love's dwelling place. If
you make that kind of foundation, any being, including God cannot remove
it. God wants to follow that kind of moving love. Do you understand?
Men and women have a stripe. This woman's background connects to the first
female ancestor of humankind, the so-called Eve. Man's stripe is connected
to the so-called first male ancestor-Adam. In Korean, the concept of Adam
means "man made wall". Eve in Korean, means "have to work to
prepare everything to come back again." Adam means "wall."
That wall has to be torn down. That's a strange language! Koreans describe
the act of the fall saying that Adam and Eve "picked and ate."
Like picking a cherry or picking an apple out of a tree and then eating
it. Without their even knowing all this biblical background, when someone
commits adultery they say they "took and ate".
Those who do not have all these stripes, strings or thread (they all mean
the same thing) raise your hands. There are many invisible strings and threads
we inherit from our parents or even from grandparents whom you might never
have seen. What is your wish? Do you want the string which connects you to
God and your parents to be eternal or temporary? [Eternal!] In America, do
people have that concept of eternity? What about the ties or thread between
brothers and sisters; do you want that to be eternal also? [Yes.] Somehow
that sounds strange to Father. Do you Americans really mean that? What
about between a man and a woman? Is there such a string existing? If you
are husband and wife, yes. Do you want that to be eternal or temporary?
[Forever.] But American people's concept is not like that.
What about the inseparable string with your country? Do you have that?
[Yes.] What about your connection with the world? Even though we cannot see
it and sometimes cannot even feel it, but something still pulls us in that
direction. The mind, with the speed and accuracy tens of thousands times more
powerful than a computer, is always evaluating and measuring the strength of
your string with the world. How does the mind work? It contains the original
measure or standard. All you have to do is apply that and measure yourself.
What about something like a radio wave. It's there even though you
cannot see it. It may be strong, or it may not be strong, but it is very
much there, and it is always connected to us. When a typhoon blows or a mild
wind blows the wave length becomes different. The action of the waves becomes
different. That happens with man. We have many kinds of strings and thread to
keep in touch with other people. They have different shapes and strengths. Each
of the millions of stars in this big universe sends a special wave or string
connecting to each individual person on earth. Depending on how it varies, our
four hundred billion cells within our body are affected, sometimes becoming
happy. There are literally millions of different waves which we cannot see,
but they are there. If you turn the radio on, waves come in. There are
threads or strings of waves all moving back and forth. Different waves,
different frequencies, different strengths, all passing through. If there
is an antenna along their path, they kiss it and continue on. Each keeps
his own wavelength. They never collide with each other and stop. Is this
far fetched imagination or a scientific explanation? This is the way it is.
So many waves come to us and towards us, but do we have an antenna
which will catch them? The most ideal antenna would be a golden antenna. Is
that true? What is the "golden antenna" in the human world? For
picking up true love waves, what do we have? What is true love? What kind of
expression is it? If we compare true love to gold and diamonds there should
be golden true love and diamond true love. Nothing can top the brightness of
golden true love. It's the best. Nothing can be harder than the hardness of
diamond true love. It's a different quality of true love. When you scratch
over pure gold, does the scratch mark remain there or not? Yes, it does. It
is soft, but it is never changing. It never changes its color. What is it
that is more never-changing than gold and is harder than a diamond? What is
it? The personality made centering on true love. That kind of true love is
more valuable than gold or diamonds. All spirit waves want to meet and kiss
that antenna! It never goes away, never fades, never perishes.
The true love center is like gold and diamond. All things and all beings,
certainly all mankind, want to find their own direction and perpetuate and
fulfill themselves through True Parents. Only by going through True Parents
can they do that. As long as we prepare ourselves to catch that wave coming
from True Parents and from God, we are instantly connected.
[Father draws a humorous looking man on the board.] This looks like
an Oriental face. The body also is Oriental. Notice the feet are rather
small. [He draws another.] Do you love an Oriental teacher? That means
me. That Oriental teacher always hits American women, always brings her
up as the subject and hits her and hits her again saying, "She is
like this" and "She does that." You know that for any metal,
especially pure gold, the more times you strike it, the better it becomes. Do
you agree? You know how the Japanese make their samurai swords. They pound
it ritualistically. They put a lot of spirit into it and continue pounding
day after day and month after month until it becomes a masterpiece. Do you
understand? Have you ever heard Father saying, "You relax today. Take
off your clothes and just lay down and take all the naps you want. It is
your day off." Has Father ever given you one day like that in the
many years of the Unification movement? No, he tells you that every day you
have to work hard and take action. You cannot relax or escape. Your heads
really resisted those words. You didn't enjoy hearing them at all, but your
bones became stronger because of it. Because of those strong words you have
settled down in a stable way. Through time those words will gradually work
their way up to your head. At last you will become like that, thinking,
"I will work harder and put more power into it."
Do you know how hard God trained Father? Father says he doesn't even want
to think about it. If Father had a mind like the merchants in this world,
he would try to escape from the coming of a man like himself. When do
you know God loves Father. That is when Father is in the worst condition,
like jail. Let's say Father is really exhausted, then God comes and loves
him so much, that after a while Father liked to go to jail because that
is where he would experience the love of God. When Father is so exhausted
that he cannot even think, he just sits on his own, then God talks to
him . He doesn't even want to hear, but he cannot help it. God tells him,
"Tomorrow such and such a thing will happen, you'd better know it."
Father knows that. Because of that, the other inmates understand that Father
is an unusual person. They came to understand him. In Hung Nam prison this
was really pronounced. Father knew a couple of days ahead of time, who was
going to die so Father would tell them and it would surely happen. Sometimes
for dinner, hardly a dinner, but whatever the evening meal would be, maybe
pollock soup, but two thirds of the fish was hopelessly spoiled and bad,
so Father would tell them, "Don't eat that or you will certainly get
sick." Believing him, they wouldn't eat and those who did would get
sick. Then everyone understood he was an unusual person. He was a person
with a strange power. To them it seemed strange but not to Father. Someone
who was in jail at the same time as Father wrote a book about him. The name
of it is "Holy Man in Prison." He observed Father, and wrote about
things that Father doesn't even remember now.
Now, knowing what is good for us, Father is telling us to suffer. Every
time Father talks to us he cannot mention anything except to suffer. He wants
us to meet God. Prison is a place to meet God. Satan's world cannot connect
freely. There is a border line there. In prison there is no boundary line,
God can connect with you freely. Jail is the lowest and worst place. Without
going through what God has always experienced we cannot really meet Him.
In Japan, during a fierce money earning era, one member lived in a van
for thirteen years. Can anyone in America survive that? Could American
women survive that situation? Can you do that? It is easy to say yes, but
try to live it. He or she had the support of spirit world. As long as she
was in the van, she was told everything about what was going to happen the
same day or the next day. But if she went home, it was pitch dark and she
never knew what was going to happen the next moment. However in the van it
was so light, God was there. So she chose to live in the van for thirteen
years. The only way we can understand God's heart is to go to such places.
[Referring to drawings on board.] Here's an Oriental and here's a
Westerner. Is there any string which connects them making them one? Now
there is a rumor that there is a real man living here in America. When you
hear that, do you imagine that real man just loves white people or does he
love all people including Asian people and even those Eskimos who seem to
be forgotten? A real man can think thoughts and reach to white people or
extend to black people and Asian people, including Eskimo people. Do you
understand? He can reach out to people in the spiritual world in the same
way. At last when he reaches the universal level, he will go back down. When
one side is taken care of then the opposite side has to be taken care of
too. There is always preparation. A real man appearing here will recreate
a real woman, and so recreate the universe. He has to make that kind of
different woman. This is the creation concept. As soon as a complete plus
appears, automatically a minus appears. What is that complete man; that
absolutely complete plus? He is okay in every position. What is the contrary
word to complete man; imitation man? [Fake.] What is a real man? How about
Reverend Moon? [Real man!] A completely real man? [Yes.] No, no, no, until
now, not complete. Satan is still against me. That kind of power remains
in humankind and comes against me and I digested them one by one. By the
appearance of the book, Inquisition in America, intelligent people read it
and it changes their understanding.
This is a time of transition from the dark days to a time of light. Now
if they find any point, they will come out and say, "Reverend Moon is
not bad after all. In fact he is good." This string and thread, which
is the original point has as its terminal point, what? What is the most
important element in man? What is the most important point in the universe
or in spirit world? What is the important point in God? What is the common
denominator even within my own family and sons and daughters; the thing that
applies to everyone? What is that common denominator? Diamonds, knowledge,
power, those things are almost nothing compared to it. You may boast of your
billions of dollars of wealth here, but when you go to spirit world you will
be asked, "So you are rich, eh? How much do you have? How many acres of
land do you have?" You will not be able to speak. An immense territory,
your hometown territory is waiting for you forever. How much land do you
have to possess before you can be proud? How many years do you have to spend
to study? We studied so many hours and years but how much knowledge did we
get? We don't need that. In the spirit world you can study for a few hours and
catch everything. So you say, "I have a doctorate degree from Harvard,
so I am qualified to go to heaven." Father says that is foolish.
What about power? Yesterday Mr. Ju was explaining that in Washington,
DC there are many statues. All the statues are directed to the White House,
it shows they are power oriented. Any president of the United States,
who has tremendous power over the whole world, could he go to spirit world
and say, "I am the President of the United States, open up the gates
of heaven!"? All things would ignore him or spit him out. He will
be asked, "Do you have the passport signed by God? Did True Parents
approve it?" So power is not important in the spirit world.
On the contrary those who cried and wept for the sake of the poor people,
and constantly tried to help them, who lived for their sake and loved them,
those kind of people will find a certain door into heaven. One gate is for
those filial sons and daughters who really suffered all his or her life to
serve their parents. That kind of person will never go to hell. The clan or
group of people who served for the sake of the country and really suffered,
were imprisoned or died, they will never go to hell. Also, a holy man,
who serves and eventually dies for the sake of the world, the world cannot
deny him. The gate of heaven is opened for him.
That common denominator is a very important element. It applies to
everything. It is true love. What is true love? Here is one way of explaining
it. True love is where we are willing to go, gladly abandoning even our own
life in the fallen world, where we don't even mind forsaking our life in the
old world, only glad to go that route of true love. How tedious, even tired
God must be because God had to maintain this criteria of love all throughout
human history. Through all the different types of fallen history, Father had
to deal with that love. We are only concerned about one generation, our own
lifetime here on earth, seventy or eighty years and true love is what we're
talking about. Those who do not know what true love is or never hear of it,
certainly have not practiced it. That kind of person, compared with God,
who has been suffering so much while trying to establish true love here in
the fallen world, can that kind of person walk into the spirit world and say,
"Where is God, I am his son"? Can you do that?
It's been almost forty years since 1954. In '54, '55, '56 and all those
different years, different kinds of people opposed Father. Father had to
shed tears and pray for them. Father had to not only persevere, but try to
bring them around. The only way to do this was love. Every year a different
person opposed Father in a different way. Every moment of each year, Father
tried to appease them. If Father was as short tempered as you and wanted to
retaliate towards those who came against him, like you do, Father couldn't
even have continued living one moment. But knowing God and inheriting His
traditional love, Father cannot retaliate against anybody, he only tried to
be more loving. They were demanding for Father to love them more. Father has
been living like that, thinking that he must improve himself because it must
be his shortcoming.
What is the strong string or thread? That strong string would center
on Reverend Moon, Father knows that. What is your answer-to cut every
string that is not worthwhile, free yourself from all strings and come
strengthen that string between True Parents and you. Would you answer yes to
that? [Yes!] Knowing your answer is positive, Father confidently brought all
of you together here, Easterner and Westerner, and Father made a matching
and married you in peace. So if Father raises you up it is okay. If Father
brings you down, it's okay. If Father makes you go around it's okay. But,
eventually who is it that takes responsibility of the consequences? If Father
raises you up, who takes the responsibility if you do wrong? If Father brings
you down, who takes the responsibility for those consequences? Of course,
Father does. Father is forever in the subject position. You are standing
in the objects position. We all connect into one and take a long, long time.
In that there is forever life, forever law, forever family, centered on
unchangeable true love. Isn't that true? You know well; more than me!
So you all have strings connecting you with your physical brothers and
sisters, your parents, someone who you loved, all sorts of strings. But we
would like to replace those with a stronger string. The only thing you have
to do is just connect it. You are ready because you're connecting point is
ready. How powerful would that string be connecting you to God! You feel,
"I am so happy as a child of God!" Vertically connected into one,
that is the ideal dot, the stable position; one place. After that vertical
position is established, the horizontal is automatically made. At first man
is ignorant about that, but after he grows up he begins looking and saying,
"What is that?" In there is brother's situation, parent's situation,
grandparents and relatives. He learns the concept of caring about them.
This expands to the concept of concern for the nation and after that the world.
The whole world wants to connect to a pair centered on true love.
The mineral world is a world of plus and minus, they connect centered on
love. The insect world has male and female and centered on love they connect
into one. What kind of part does that? The most important part; the sexual
organ. The animal world, male and female connect there centering on love and
the same thing with man and woman. Why was man and woman born? For love;
forever centering on true love. You have reached that kind of true love
purpose. On one hand, a woman cannot become a complete person by herself. She
needs a partner. The same is true for man. Man absolutely needs woman and
woman absolutely needs man. For man what is the most precious thing? Not gold,
not knowledge, not power. The most precious, most valuable, most absolutely
needed thing for man is woman. For woman, true man. That is absolutely the
most valuable thing. Do you understand?
In puberty, your mind is striving to become global. Your mind wants to
embrace everything. There is no obstacle there, you want to welcome and
accumulate everything. At that time what purpose do all five senses focus
on? True love partnership. A woman says, "A man is the most valuable one
for me." The strong thread that connects there pulls everything in. It
pushes nothing out. Automatically, "Look at her eye. Your nose is most
beautiful." A man has bold power. Woman has gentle, soft power. When
the soft one and hard one hit together, an explosion is there, centering on
true love. "I am the happiest one in the universe! How happy I am!"
Laughing and dancing, going around everywhere. At that time, the whole universe
surrounds you. You don't know that they are dancing in spirit world. Even
the tree and the grass are dancing. That's good. How much happiness and
satisfaction! After finding that, how much pride you will have. You will
feel everything is made for you, that everything belongs to you. Everything
wants to touch your hand. Everything is concerned with the central person.
You want to stand in that kind of position, don't you? Even small women and
ugly women too! That kind of love is so powerful, it makes a big wind blowing
the sea into big waves. God will say, "Look at how happy I am. For the
first time I met my eternal partner in the created world!" You cannot
be separated. "You are my partner forever!" No kind of existence
can change your position. Happiness is there. That is real freedom. American
people's freedom sounds good but the contents are bad. If people live in a
principled world they can find freedom. If a country has organizations based on
systematic denial can people find freedom? [No.] There is no form of protection
there. That is the most fearful place. Centering on himself, can a person do
whatever he wants and call that freedom? No. If I take whatever I want and
eat it any time, is that "eating freedom"? No. Originally we are
to eat for divine love. Then automatically whatever we put in our mouths,
the taste will be wonderful and our mouths can welcome everything. If you
eat selfishly, even your mouth will want to spit out the food.
White people and black people need unity to find freedom. The freedom
people have sought until now is not based on unity, and it doesn't follow
any formula. Using a formula of unity, a person can connect with the natural
world. This is a universal formula. It is the concept of divine law. Can
we deny universal law and, centering on the self, find freedom? No. We must
follow the Divine laws. Only in that way can you get freedom. The original
axis of truth is what Reverend Moon is always talking about. In that you
will find true love. True love connects completely-every law. There are no
obstacles. You cannot find freedom or eternal welcome any other way. Do you
understand? The place of true love is where you will find eternal freedom.
When you take that position, your parents will look at you and feel so
much joy. They will say, "I feel so good. I respect you." That is
the couples' correct place. "My husband is my key to eternal freedom. At
night I can do anything." Centering on the wife's heart of true love,
they can connect into one. After that action, everything will welcome them
forever throughout their whole lifetime. True freedom is there. True freedom
will connect to true happiness. Also there, family happiness will connect
to and be experienced all over the whole world. Every place will become
part of a happy, peaceful world. That kind of situation is what our church
calls heaven on earth. Father wants to go to a black family and feel welcomed,
"Welcome Reverend Moon!" Blessed couples can do that. Reverend Moon's
true love initiates that kind of valuable action where he can be welcomed
every time. Look at that phenomenon. I initiated the action which brought
that result. When I look at that, how much happiness is in me! That's true.
Every blessed couple wants to visit me. Every morning at the breakfast
table, and lunch and dinner, everyone will prepare hoping Father will
come to their place. God will hear you asking, "Please, please."
This sound will accumulate and fill up the world. That kind of family is
a connecting place. When you look at that kind of father who is sensitive,
you feel understood. At that time you will shout "Mansei! For so long I
have sought the kind of purpose that I feel in this moment." What a happy
sound that would make all over the universe. It would make one wave going all
around the atmosphere and at one point burst out. It's like an explosion. It
would be that powerful, touching all existence. The whole universe will be
concerned with the center of that phenomena. You will be and will feel that
kind of value as the center of the earth. How happy you will be! When you
experience that tears will fall automatically. After that, your mouth will
be laughing. First will come the feeling welling up in you and after that
you will laugh. You will not laugh before the feeling. The whole universe
will harmonize with that kind of action. [Father does a little dance.]
No matter how many people throughout the world come together against me,
I cannot take the easy way. Instead I push more to connect more strongly. Once
I stop, I inhale and then exhale this natural world. The universe exists by
taking action, by making relationship and creating harmony. After taking
some kind of opposing action, you can reach in and make a connection with
something that will last eternally. Do you understand?
So in the history of the dispensation the most important thing is to
exchange that old string, to change from all the old ties to new ties.
Until now, we have lived in a fallen world. No one can deny that and we
should be aware of that. The age of new creation is coming. This is a time
for expressing our agony. If we don't experience this it is wrong. This is
the time of recreating hope.
How much you need to be trained according to the standard of how Father
was trained by God! God promised Father all the glory of the universe and
the very next moment he would find himself in jail. Over and over again this
happened. When Father went to Danbury everybody cried over the situation. But
Father didn't. Father saw that moment from the other side of the wall where
the Unification Church would be much better qualified to have dominion over
the world in true love.
In Jesus' time, restoration was centered on the establishment of
the vertical axis. But at the time of Father's imprisonment in Danbury,
the cross was for him to become the center and spread out horizontally,
to spread out wide and broad by making each one qualify as Tribal Messiah.
Father knew that clearly before going to Danbury. Father was standing in the
horizontal center. The long horizontal line was equal to the high vertical
line. I am standing in the center representing the vertical line. Not any
kind of guy can occupy this position. This is an eternal position, do you
understand? From this position Reverend Moon can grasp right wing and left
wing. That kind of time is already close. I understood that in Danbury.
After resurrecting Reverend Moon's name in America, new birth
will spread. Now is the time to do this with the aid of the book
Inquisition. Did you read the Washington Post article? They criticized
the book's contents. Still they said even if what that book says is only
fifty percent true, then Reverend Moon has been unjustly sent to jail by the
American government. They cannot deny it. We know 100 percent of the contents
of the book are correct. So Reverend Moon's name is being resurrected in the
free world. America is being reborn. So after fourteen years, Reverend Moon's
influence will reaching the top of the world's foundation. Do you understand?
In 1998, it will be fourteen years after 1984. After sixteen years it
will be the year 2000. So imagine in nine years from now, by the year 2000,
how much Reverend Moon's name will be resurrected. How much more people will
understand and respect him. Think about my visit to Moscow last year. In one
year how much things have changed! Think about that. America will respond
in that kind of way too. In the year 2000 people will ask, "Who can
lead centered on God?" God-ism will turn up everywhere.
That string and the original point we lost because of the fall will become
important to people again. In dispensational history the most important thing
is to restore these two. We must find enough value and importance in them so
we will forget our past glories-anything that you thought was worthwhile, any
ambitions of the past. You can forget about the past and with more ambition
and more pride, invest yourself into making these new ties. Of course everyone
wants to achieve this, but it is complicated and takes a long time.
What is it which is simple and can still achieve all these things
meticulously? Father thought about that. It is none other than international
marriage, especially international marriages where the spouses are from
enemy countries. By wedding them and making a successful life, we restore all
things at one time. So the grudge of each enemy nation will be dissolved by
couples from enemy countries embracing each other in love. Father thought
that for countries like Germany and England, Japan and America, Japan and
Korea, and Orientals and Westerners, there was never any better symbolic
and eventually substantial restoration. Families might really complain,
"Why do you have to marry the spouse from the enemy country?" But
Father's perspective is different. Centering on true love, recreating that
relationship can be done in seven years. This is what Father aimed for and now
we have it. Seven years is what it takes. It will also take perseverance.
Don't open your mouth, don't complain, don't even utter any words during
this seven years. The fallen world is now against God. If someone meets
this restorational phenomena but continues in their old way is a bad guy
and cannot follow God.
After one day, two days, three days of getting persecution, your mind is
making the sound, "You are bad, compared to American daughters-in-law
and sons-in-law". Who made that kind of valuable tradition, that kind
of high level action? The guy saying, "Bad, bad, bad, bad, bad"
will automatically go down. Eventually he will reach the bottom, the original
standing place and say, "I am sorry. Forgive me for everything I did,
for taking the wrong direction. Please forgive me. I will make recompense
He will come to say, "Look at that daughter-in-law. Mansei.
Glorious God, she endured victoriously all during this time. How great.
You have shown me the way of goodness. You have introduced me to the victorious
way. You are indeed good my son and daughter".
Do you understand? It takes seven years. Most families fail during
the first three or four years. Until now there were many enemy countries
and for forty years Japanese son-in-laws and daughter-in-laws were often
unwelcome. In the beginning they make trouble. After that we begin to hear
the sound of happiness from every corner. Then parents open their mouths
and say, "Well done." The relatives will say, "You have
done well in our family. You have become like a son. How wonderful it is
to have an Oriental daughter or Oriental son. We don't like American sons
and daughters. They deny everything." It happens automatically.
Our members first have to deny everything while creating a welcoming
atmosphere. Everything, must be denied-their youth, their country, background
and culture. The way America is going is not so good. Not so good or not so
bad, which one? Not so good means bad. All the time you say, "Not so
good, not so bad". That is complicated. You use that too much.
Every family and relative will question "Why a Japanese son-in-law or
daughter-in-law?" Parents, brothers and sisters question too. This is
like God, taking action, and after continual action they will fall down. The
wilderness will become flat. What a great power is making this result! How
enjoyable it is for me. I am thankful to God and thankful for True Parents,
thankful for my husband and wife forever. It's great. I like that. The
Oriental woman's skin feels good, it is so soft. The American women's skin
feel so coarse in comparison.
International marriage is so wonderful from the Unification viewpoint.
How wonderful? It can embrace people from all over the world. We want to
reach further and further afield. This is wonderful. We will reach down,
down, through the center of the earth to the universe and finally make it
whole. How wonderful. There will be no enemies there. Every place will
welcome you. "Come here, we've been wanting to meet you for a long
time." Is that true? There are more than 24,000 blessed couples all
over the world. They are the tribal messiah center for all of humanity. In
their countries too, the same negative concepts exist. We have to cut all
these. Do you understand? Cut away all these strings at one time. Only the
couples who follow remain in there centering on Father and God to make the four
positions. They connect and stand strong against any stones thrown at them.
Those who throw the stones will lose everything. Watch the enemy side-they
will loose their sight, their hearing, their sense of smell, their concepts,
and they will become simply a vacant place. At last they will say, "What
shall I do? I have a variety of diseases. Where can I find treatment?"
They will look over all four corners of the earth and eventually they will
realize that the doctor to solve that disease is a disciple of Reverend Moon.
They will come to understand. At that time they will crawl to you like an
animal. At that time they will welcome our inter-marriage. "Welcome
if your wife wants to come here, day or night or for a long, long time. You
did it and now I welcome you. Please come in." They will embrace you
and you can give them the injection. They will pledge, "Forever I will
follow you. You are my center."
Yes, we have to change it and what is the most important thing? True love,
true life and true lineage. All are the same T.L. The true love lineage
automatically combines to make a trinity. "T" from true means God
crossing that bridge. "L" from love is man crossing that bridge. The
"up bridge" and "down bridge" make a circle centering
on true love, true life and true lineage. Do you need that? How valuable
is it? Can you pay for it with your life? Our blood is still connected to
Satan's blood. But we must think about making God's vibration.
Summer weather is here and it is hot. This is the time when outside
people take vacations. The other day I stopped by Washington. I went down
the main street in Washington on a Friday in the evening time. There were
no cars and no men. It looked just like a vacant place. They all go out to
vacation somewhere else. Reverend Moon is working hard. In the summertime
Father doesn't take a vacation, but goes out to sea and catches fish from
very early in the morning. From early morning to late evening Father stays
out. Why? People are starving all over the earth; over two million people a
year. I am working to supply that kind of root and foundation to feed these
people. Go to the ocean, the ocean is connected to every place.
I made all the preparation. I made the boats and connected with that office
there, so that forty family people can be centered in missionary work and
connect with ocean businesses all over the world. They are centered in key
countries. Yesterday you heard Father's sermon here. Water is powerful. If
you connect with water power you can liberate the starving world. Do you
understand? Water is everywhere.
Are you a true love center? [Yes.] With what? [God's love.] Connecting to
True Parents. You had bad parents. From bad parents bad love began. In there
is connected bad life and bad blood lineage. How can you completely deny
yourselves and make a zero point? The crossing place or junction is the zero
point. Do you understand? Go through that and take the other way. Without going
through there you cannot reach the righteous way. You have to go through that
zero point to complete restoration. How can you reach the zero point? You
have a concept. "I didn't know that; I forgot. Even though I went to
high school, I forgot everything. Father teach us." The most friendly
guy forgets everything. People take their dates out and later, "Oh,
I forgot his (or her) name completely."
Completely re-learn everything. Forget zero. Is taking the zero point the
easy way or difficult way? Answer me! It is very, very difficult. How can
we erase all the past and return to the zero point which is the same as
the original point? That is international marriage. Satan is very upset,
telling the modern world "Don't do that, don't deny anything!"
When you stand in the position of denial you stand in the zero point. That
is God's side. That is the way of persecution. Persecution is not bad when
it can return you to the original point.
Man cannot separate everything. I am the center and everything is coming
against me. When a man and woman are joined together in international marriage,
they can stand and make a victorious center. Western people and Eastern
people will combine into one. The Western world and Eastern world used
to be enemies. Now we are changing them to true love partners. Digesting
this is no problem. This is the most valuable way of denial, taking the
side of God. Father understood that. Yet at the start, everything in the
world, every kind of existence came against me. But the last victor will be
me. Satan's side is defeated at last. As one side goes down, the other side
is ascending into heaven. Both the name and reality of Reverend Moon are
going up to the clouds. Unification love power surrounds me like a cloud. My
way is the way of salvation. That is actually reality, not just concept.
American leaders are now welcoming me. That too is reality. The high level
Soviet world is now welcoming me. While I was in the Soviet Union, leaders
from all fifteen republics visited me and received a good education. We made a
great impact. When they left, they asked, "Please visit our country. We
will welcome you and treat you like a king. No matter how other powerful
nations may treat you, please come to us. If you want to speak, we will give
you the national television center." They made these recommendations
to me! They showed their appreciation. Satan's world's strings were cut away.
Now America's CIA says, "We need Reverend Moon. Don't go home."
Before Father went to jail, all American leaders and American people said,
"Reverend Moon and all you Asian people, go back home!" The same
sound covered the whole free world at that time, especially coming from
white people. People from twenty five nations were targeting me. I was this
lonely guy, representing God's place, getting shot at. Every arrow hit me,
every bullet. Who protected me? God. However, instead of hitting me that
bullet will go back to their children, their parents and at last their
nation. This is why America is dying. America is perishing isn't it? There
is no brake. So who can put the brake on? Reverend Moon. But how difficult
it is to make that powerful brake. Father received persecution and had to
make many sacrifices. It is not easy to choose and take this way. Do you
understand? This is reality. If Reverend Moon passed them by, what would
the American people do in the future?
You have to know that through true love you have received everything.
How many times have you inherited Satan's life? How much do you want to cast
him out. God wants that to take over every place. Father went to Danbury of
his own accord. Think about the Justice Department. After their indictment
against Reverend Moon they thought he would never return to the United
States. Immediately after Father heard the news in Germany, he traveled to
Korea for one night and then returned directly to America. They were amazed
and fearful. That result is bad and is connected to America's decline. That
is the historic result. America did this.
The tide of the white people has overshadowed the oriental, but now
centered on Reverend Moon, the current is changing. At this time Reverend
Moon is outstripping the western world. This is one of the phenomena through
which God creates universal destiny. No one can stop this fate.
Reverend Moon is a smart guy. How can he ride on God's fate? For him
fate is like a horse. Father got on God's fate and traveled on it. As he
rode he was persecuted, and as he ran he was hit. Educated Americans can't
do this. Exhausted they fall down saying, "I cannot go there. This
is not freedom's real way." Nor can they continue through dinner or
through their sleeping time. They reiterate, "I don't like this"
and finally fall down.
This course is like the Olympic games Reverend Moon is making the training
hard, providing strong discipline. Americans are undisciplined. They are like
the grasshopper wanting only to be free. But what we really need is strict
discipline. Do you understand? How strict is the discipline of the Divine
Principle viewpoint? If you cannot be strongly disciplined you cannot take
number one place in the competition and receive the Olympic prize. These
phenomena will continue forever. In that there is hope. Otherwise there is
In the last Olympics the Soviet Union was number one, America was number
two and Korea was number four. West Germany was number three. Satan's side
was number one, through the Soviets. West Germany was number three. The
free world was number two. Korea was number four. So Satan's side is up
there and America is going down. That is bad. The spirit is the same. The
American spirit is ebbing as the vertical concept is being lost. However,
since Reverend Moon came to this country the vertical concept is getting
stronger. Man and the vertical concept have to become completely one, more
than in communism. Communist people came here and for three days received
Divine Principle education. They took these ideas in completely.
Those who have received the blessing, raise your hands. You stand
in the position to cut away everything. Cut away all old ties and
traditions. Re-connect with the new lineage. The meaning is long life.
Long life has a long distance to travel. A long life can control long distance
no problem. In the spirit world there is no time, no space, no distance. The
only center is true love power. I understand the existence of that kind
of love world. It is absolutely valuable there, you would not exchange it
for anything. Standing in that position of true love power you can control
things so that when you go to the spiritual world, you can connect with me
immediately in the king's position.
All through history what was Cain and Abel's mission? That of elders
which is the king's realm; the elder position. Parents are in king's
position. Family, parents, and True Parents are the center. By centering
on God and True Parents, you connect into one and grow day by day. The
spiritual world is united centering on True Parents. From now on that kind
of phenomenon is going to happen on the earth during the next twelve years,
from 1988 to 2000. From the time of the Korean Olympics, it has become
Reverend Moon's space. Reverend Moon cast out the net of Korean love of
relatives. No matter if Kim Il Sung is against me, he has no more power. I
made that restorational condition. Many delegations, five delegations met
Kim Il Sung. He sent great gifts back to me. Any kind of people: political
people, diplomatic people, business people, professors, technologists, they
didn't understand. Just me. The Korean government now understands. That's my
responsibility, not the Korean government's. So I connect with the Soviets,
that is not United States' mission. It is Reverend Moon's mission, True
Parent's mission. America is connected in this. Satan's power connects both
countries. God doesn't want that. Immediately Reverend Moon has take back
the Soviet Union and the world, to God's side. He has accomplished that.
KGB leaders and high level military generals are now asking, "What
shall I do." I will connect them. During the last seventy three years the
KGB killed and slaughtered many people. Now every village, every factory,
every area is saying, "We cannot remain a part of such communist
activity." They chase them out. They want to clean up. Almost 200
million people died. The German situation is not comparable to the Soviet
Union. That is Father's last job. I will educate them too. How fearful
is Satan's action. But we will clean this mess up and make it into God's
world. Do you understand? This is my mission. This is not the CIA's mission
or America's mission. This is my mission, I have to do it.
Father is making unification of the American side and the Soviet side
too. This is reality. Is this the easy way or difficult way? Making unity is
the solution. Twenty years ago, Father started the underground movement. My
missionaries went everywhere. You didn't know that. You think Father just
takes the normal, happy way. No. We are so serious, otherwise we cannot
overcome Satan. We need the indemnity course. This is the final conclusion.
Unless there is this action, there cannot be restoration. Ultimately I will
have visited Japan jails, Korean jails-the North Korean jail represented
the worst communism of all, and an America jail. The last jail is perhaps
a Soviet jail. If Father doesn't take action for fear of the future, then
who could solve the problem? Father is waiting to go to jail again in the
future. Father has to digest that. At the time of the Moscow rally, Novosti
immediately recommended, "From now we will make education the way to
turn around Sovietism. It is the only hopeful way." They understood
well. Now we're making a foundation in Moscow and from there we will expand
out. We are bringing the leaders to America to educate them here. The money
I spend clearly has a pay back. The Novosti agency welcomed me. But so much
happened during our short visit that we need two months more to digest it all.
People cannot always easily agree with my recommendations. So first I
approach the professors. For example I visited Moscow university and made a
professors organization representing Soviet professors there. Immediately they
connect with other professors. So already we have had 300 people visit here
from Moscow University. Soon Americans will visit Moscow University and make a
rally representing all universities. In the communist world it is no problem
to gather that kind of crowd. "We will do it, if you want to. Why
not?" We will stir up a good problem in the Soviet Union. People will
wonder what Reverend Moon is doing at Moscow University. Initially there
will be little harvest.
The problem is that the political bureau centered on the communists and the
KGB. So we have to immediately combine two aspects. Communist organizations
want all the young people to become its members. Every university is concerned
about that kind of activity on campus. The campus is the education place of
Marx-Lenin theory. Now in their place, students will be trained in Unification
thought, the Godism training course. Why not make such a change? We will make
all the preparations. What shall Reverend Moon bring about? Hope. "We
will do it." We need quite a bit of money, but they will say, "I
During the three days of education, Soviet teachers and theoretical leaders
kneel down saying, "Please, we understand. We Soviets understand
clearly this is not a place of hope. This has been Satan's foundation for
seventy three years. We understand. How many have perished on the earth? We
did not do well. Reverend Moon please hurry and make retribution for that
decision. What shall we do?"
Izvestia represents all the Soviet newspapers. Three people including
the chief at the center, and the general manager came here with a group
recently. After a meeting they came up as representatives. "We read the
translated contents of the Divine Principle. We looked at our situation. We
have to make corrections." They asked me, "Please can you do it
Reverend Moon?" "Okay, I will. But after a certain point, you will
have to do it."
We want to have professors representing all Soviet regions writing this
in the paper. Almost seventy million people read that paper and learn from
it. It is the most powerful people's paper. We can connect to Novosti agency's
information, no problem. They want that kind of participation now.
Also, Divine Principle is now going through translation for the Soviets. It
will go through the daily newspapers and the television centers, the radio
centers. At one time it will burst out. Why did they say to me, "Do
you know in Soviet area they take freedom of religion seriously now. Many
Christians are sending books to Soviets. Bibles are being sent by the
hundred, thousand volumes!" It is like a flood going into the Soviet
Union now. The Russian Orthodox church must start up again. But their present
concept and spirit is not so hopeful. We know well that before people read
our doctrine, they criticize it. But after that they recommend Unificationism
and Divine Principle as number one. Once people read Divine Principle, every
other religious book is automatically cast out. The Soviet world has the
best chance to survive with Godism. Their country has only one paper, not
several only one. That is Izvestia. This is not just talk. It is being done.
Think about the Soviet people and Soviet area. Thirty six countries were
connected to the communist world. That's almost two billion people. So at
one time you can influence two billion people with the Divine Principle.
The three most important L's in unification are life, love and lineage.
You have true love, true life, and true lineage. Before the blessing is a
ceremony where you go through a junction and change your blood lineage. But
you do not know the meaning of the contents of that ceremony. You now have
blood lineage ownership. True love and true life ownership-you've got it. But
you didn't know completely the contents. At least the effect is good, not bad.
At that time, there is a kind of "vacant place" made that
we have to fill up later by our effort. Our effort is most essential.
Shed tears, sweat and blood. This is your mission, to dedicate and sacrifice
yourself. Father did everything already. Do you understand? You have to
go over and fulfill your 5% by going the way of indemnity. That is your
responsibility, not Father's. Raise up your family, each of you. Raise your
family, your tribe and your nation. Your mission of 5% still remains. When
you accomplish tribal messiahship you will automatically connect to the
vertical center of the world which Father has already established. New
branches have survived reaching all four corners of the world. The new
branches connect and graft starting new life. True life, true love and true
lineage connect there at the new bud. The new bud grows up into a new branch,
new flower and new fruit. Soon the harvest is coming. Invest there. Harvest
time is when we can make ownership. All humankind wants to discover their
terminal purpose. God will harvest and put it in a warehouse at the end of
the days. You have a key; a true love, true life, true blood lineage key. We
can tell our relatives, our tribe, "follow me." Automatically it
will open there. The nations of all four corners will be free, no problem.
Do you understand? That time is appearing. How can you deny it? Is it
acceptable or exemptible? Acceptable! Do you follow me? Is this fair?
Will you do it? [Yes!] "I like these three TL's forever. Combined
within me, we can get into all of the created world on the earth, the spirit
world, my territory, my free foundation. How wonderful this is. This great,
great big universal meeting! Awesome! Every time awesome, forever."
Centering on love, we can use God's creative power. We can make everything
with the love concept at the center.
I want to see several hundred thousand enthusiastic people at one time
in a large hall. Then we can immediately make it a love center. We'll have
beautiful chairs and podium and good equipment everywhere. How wonderful! I
want to make great preparations for food. Imagine, a hundred thousand million
people in one place, one banquet, all wearing golden clothes! How wonderful
it would be with everyone looking so good! Your tongue would just hang
out. Even your tongue wants to reach out to taste true love too. Once your
eyes see it you would just want to leap and jump in. "Don't do that! I
love more!" Your love partner wants to meet you there. Automatically
your eye is standing in the position of king centering on love. There is
settlement there centering on love, like God's partner. At that time with
everything centered on love we could make everything beautiful. This would
be a natural phenomena. Talking would be so good, feeling is so good. Even
when it is time to sleep your eyes will stay open. Spirit world doesn't
sleep, do you understand? They go through the night dancing everywhere,
making melodies-like my granddaughter! No one taught her!
Your spirit mind will forever fully enjoy the spirit body. There at last
you will be able to celebrate my re-birthday. You will be able to greet me
again and have a re-birth day centering on true love.
This time we learnt the reality of true love. In spirit world the air
is love-air. We eat love-food and wear love-clothes True Parents, our real
parents give us centering on true love. How wonderful these clothes are. You
will want to kiss them. There will be so much love. But even one hundred
times more than kissing your clothes you will want to kiss your husband. One
time you kiss your husband you will want to bite him. Even if you draw blood,
he will fall down laughing because there is so much love. He will say,
" I understand. Thank you. What a wonderful woman." That's true.
What shall Father talk about? Father says if you kick him in love he
doesn't mind, if you pinch him in love he doesn't mind either. Isn't that
true? If you become an invalid because of love, you know, if someone kisses
you and bites a chunk off, when you go to heaven, that part that was bitten
off will go ahead! It goes a step ahead of the rest of the body. The mouth
of one who kissed so well in true love will go to heaven first. If you love
in a balanced way you go to heaven in a balanced way.
Think about love-air. It will feel so good you will want to breathe in
and out so much. "This is so good I welcome all air. Love atmosphere
you are forever!" Is that true? Of course, preparation was made for
thousands of years before people came into the created world. Centering
on love, the preparation is your part, your ownership. That is now my
house-world, centering on love. My relatives, tribe or my country-world.
Reverend Moon is a smart guy isn't he? He is a handsome guy too!
That's true. Father's face is strong, looking from the side he looks strong,
like a wrestler. Father's weight is 210 pounds. You think, "That
much weight?" It doesn't look like it because I am a well harmonized
person. So many woman look at me and think, "I want to make him my
husband, what shall I do?" I have turned down many women all over the
world. In America too, women follow me. They can't kiss me, but have to
keep a distance of one meter. If one time they kiss, next they will bite. But
Father can't afford to lose so many bites every time they kiss Father!
Time passes so quickly. Now do you understand Father's point? True
love. Everything is based on true love, do you like that? Can you become
a small king or a full king? [Full king.] Baby king or adult king? [Adult
king.] You know the answers well. But can you actually do that, can you
become a great king? Then you have to take a proud position. "When people
visit me, I will fill up anyplace, everywhere and be proud of it. I'll fill
After that you are talking about happiness, freedom and a peaceful
world. Why not? You can do that. Do you understand? You have to welcome
your parents and relatives. Until now you couldn't do that, but in this
time we are welcoming that. You can automatically connect to your tribe at
one time. Engraft all at one time. Not just a small branch, but a great big
branch. Making a big branch all at once is tribal messiahship, no problem.
After making that connection we can quickly step to the national level. Then
with three kinds of nations connected we don't need a country. Do you
understand? As more and more unify, there will be expansion to the world-level.
So let's make a conclusion. We should take as the most important things
in dispensational history these three things: true love, true life, true
lineage. We should do our best to deny the rest. We simply have to deny
all and re-connect here to true love.
[Speaking to one Japanese brother.] You love white people don't you?
[Yes.] Until now you hated them. I hated white people before I understood
the Divine Principle. After you understand, then you have to love, you have
So now we know, Father has been dealing with the most complicated
situation, trying to set it right. Father spoke something which in seven
days even the highest scholars would have to study to grasp because the
level that Father is teaching on is so big. Father didn't learn all these
things from somewhere else. Imagine how many questions these high level
scholars asked Father during the science conference! These scholars are
really something else. Each has his own particular summit or field where
they have no teacher. They are the teacher themselves and still they ask
so many questions to Father. Every time they were flabbergasted by Father's
answer. Gradually they turned around and came to respect Father. It didn't
happen over night, it took time to become like that. For eighteen years,
nothing bothered all the prominent scholars more every year than the theme
"Absolute Value". It really bothered them. In the beginning they
rebelled against him but Father wouldn't budge. The amazing thing was, that
as rebellious as they were, the ones who stayed succumbed to the truth, then,
boy, this was different. They were different. They completely jumped into it
without reservation. Father has seen a professor who really shed tears. He
was so glad to see Father, he embraced him with tears. More than you. And
he didn't even have the extensive training that we have had. He lives far
from you, but he has that kind of heart. We cannot evade the conclusion,
now that we know and have seen the effect of practicing this truth, through
True Father and many others.
So the month of June is full of green and your cells become full of
life. Those who say, "Father, I will take responsibility for myself
and my country", raise your hands! Bless you! Amen!
"Amen" means a man is number one man, centering on true love,
how wonderful, how amazing such a thing is when it appears on the earth! God
looks at that and feels so good!
