REVEREND SUN MYUNG MOON
THE REALM OF
December 15, 1991

The topic of Father's sermon this morning is, The Realm of Heavenly
Liberation. Every individual on earth dreams of becoming happy and wants
to lead a happy life with a happy family. People search for a place in which
they can find happiness. That place must have something pertaining to all
aspects of happiness. The conditions for happiness within the individual,
family, nation as well as on the cosmic level must exist there. Let's examine
and find the conditions necessary to become happy.
We would like the huge cosmos to embrace the world within it. We want the
world to embrace many nations. The country should embrace many different clans
and races. Within the clan we want to see many prosperous families. In the
family we would like to have as many members as possible starting from the
grandfather down to grandchildren. "I" am one of those individuals
who is constantly seeking happiness. The happiness I would like to have is
happiness in all standards and every direction. We don't want to have just
one criterion for happiness, we want happiness in every possible respect. That
individual is then likely to be thinking about the whole world. He is placing
himself in a position of being greater than the world, greater than the clan
and the nation. Such is the human being that has been created! Now we know
what all mankind is seeking, but we don't see it anywhere around us. It is
apparently something that man has lost.
We are not daydreaming. It is not the concept of happiness we are seeking,
but the reality of happiness. Centering on myself I can pull the country and
the country is pulled to me. If I push the country, the country is pushed
away from me. We all want to be able to exercise our will in such a way.
Immediately we think that money can help us do that. Money is so
important. But apparently even when people have a lot of money, they have
the tendency to build walls and isolate themselves. Certainly then money
is not the way to bring happiness to an individual.
The next thing we consider is knowledge. You may think a Harvard
education will help you. But we see that knowledge also is helpless in
achieving lasting happiness. If you take knowledge seriously, it becomes
very narrow and specialized. Narrow knowledge can never encompass a world
view. Knowledgeable people don't usually have a large view. If one scholar
knows even one more word of vocabulary than another he claims he is better. So
happiness doesn't seem to be found in knowledge either.
How about power? Everybody likes power. Can power produce happiness? If
you have power do you want to distribute it and share it with others? No,
you want to keep it to yourself. All these things we have listed don't seem
useful in attaining happiness. At best they may help, but none seems to be
an important factor in finding happiness.
All sorts of walls exist in the world today. Starting with national
boundaries and the walls of secularism, what could possibly go through those
walls or bring them down? Money? To some extent yes, but very little. There
is only one hope in the fallen world to penetrate these walls and do away
with them. That is love. Isn't that true? If we become a part of love in
either the position of object or subject, and become involved in the give
and take of love, there is no place we cannot go. Of course we have to
consider that there is good love and bad love. There is also mediocre love,
which is neither good nor bad, but neutral. Which layer of love do we live in
today? Yes, we have to confess that we are living more in the realm of bad
love. How would you define these three realms of love? What is the standard
by which we decide either good, bad or neutral love? It's not complicated. It
is all determined by the kind of man and woman involved.
According to the man and woman and their relationship we can determine what
realm of love they are in. People will say, "She is a good woman"
or "She is a so-so woman" or "She is a bad woman."
And the same thing is true among men. With these three types of men and
three types of women, there are six combinations that you can put together,
not more. Only one of them is the best liked. The good relationship between
a good man and a good woman is what the world wants to see. In America the
population is 240 million, half of them are men and half are women. Is America
a good country or bad country? You don't know? [Bad.] Are there more good
men or good women in this country? Which percentage is higher? What is your
guess? This is serious. We need a good analysis. In order to do so, you have
to list everything and give it a lot of thought and evaluation.
Someone said America is bad. Is this because there are more bad women or bad
men in this country? Let's be serious and honest about it. The divorce rate
in this country is said to be more than fifty five percent. Can the cause of
divorce be more often traced to man or woman? Answer clearly. [Both.] That is
not acceptable, it is either man or woman. Some thoughtful woman here said,
"women." So, individually speaking are there more bad men or bad
women in this country? So, in order for that bad country to become good,
should men follow women or should women follow men? Woman has to follow
man. This is the conclusion. [A sister shouts, "Women have to follow
God."] That's not even part of the question! In this country men follow
women. Do all men follow all women? No, because of all women, only about
ten percent are beautiful! Their eyes are crazy and upside down. Men seek
to follow what they think are beautiful women.
People try to make themselves more beautiful by using cosmetics.
Do women do that more or do men do that more? The use of makeup is almost
the total monopoly of women. If you think about it seriously should we leave
makeup alone or should we revolutionize cosmetics? Individual women may
not like the way they look, but after they use elaborate makeup, they come
to like themselves and walk proudly down Fifth Avenue. Not to be critical,
but honestly, would you women like to wear dark, dingy clothing? Would men
like to see women dressed that way? Or does everyone want women to wear
nice, bright, attractive clothes? We like to see women wearing colorful and
attractive dresses. Women want everybody to pay attention to them. Alright,
let's say a women tries hard and gets lots of attention from men. Then
what? Would she show them something good or something bad? That's the next
question. What do you women think? After becoming beautiful and gaining lots
of attention, then what? [Good things.] Yes? It's clear enough that when you
become beautiful, you gain the attention of men and they will follow you. Now,
would you determine to make those men who follow you into great patriotic
men who can do service to their country, even to bring them to the level of
saint? Or, would you make him pay for you and provide you with many things,
to buy you drinks and live a lowly life? Which way would you choose? [The
first one.] American women think on such a high level? It sounds strange to
me. After you are well dressed where do you want to go? Maybe the theater
and then a dancing hall. You enjoy yourself and feel high, then what would
you like to do? Maybe you'd like lots of drinks after that. We're talking
about the average woman in any country.
We think about the fallen world all the time. Is the fallen world closer
to sainthood or closer to the secular life Father described?
Let us be reminded, everyone is seeking happiness. They do what they do
in search of happiness. We know painfully well they cannot find happiness
there. On the other hand, we have a group of people who are agonizing and
suffering almost to the extent of misery. But there we can find true love,
lofty ideals and all the positive things. Now we can reach a conclusion
based on common sense. It is generally very true that in the secular life of
physical enjoyment, almost no enduring love can be found. The general rule and
conclusion is that you have more chance of finding love among those who lead
a suffering life than among well-to-do people. That is exactly what Jesus
pointed out when he said it is more difficult for a rich man to go to the
kingdom of heaven than it is for a camel to go through the eye of a needle.
The chance is so small.
Who is the most patriotic person in a country? Is it a person who has
everything at his disposal and can do whatever he desires? Is this well-to-do
person the one who has love or is it more likely the one who lives in a
miserable condition but is ready to give whatever he has for the sake of
the nation? Which one has more chance of finding happiness? The sacrificial
person. Nobody envies him, but he himself is in a better position.
Of course there are two kinds of humble people. One is forced to live this
kind of life simply because he is poor. That may be a different story. But
the man who could lead a first rate, rich life but gives it up to live in
a more humble fashion is the one who has the chance of finding love and
happiness. You know the rules of the Principle very clearly. By the same
token, a citizen in the greatest and most affluent country of America, who
gives everything up and chooses to go to Africa and suffer with the people
there, helping them to improve and raise them up above misery and sickness,
is a great man. If Americans chose to trade for that way of life, they
would be respected all over the world and they would find happiness. They
would find the love and respect of other people. Does this sound far fetched
or reasonable? This is reality.
You cannot accomplish that with money. In other words you cannot use money
to go down to a low position. Only love, and true love at that, can make
you do that. If you talk about true love, people will demand to know where
they can find it. You can explain that when this happens, there is a good
chance true love dwells there. God is the king of all goodness. Everything
that is good is connected to God. But if God said, "I am good and
you must all serve under me", can He remain good? Therefore God too,
would like to give all the good things up and come down to live with those
in difficulty. When everybody knows this and follows God down, would we want
God to stay down forever or would we say to God, "We will replace you
here. We will take your place here so why don't you go up a step higher above
me." We would like to push God up and elevate him. In order for us to
recognize and glorify something good, we have to lift God up. Nobody cheers
something which is going down. So before we can cheer we want to bring God
up. We have to do that so we can glorify Him. Isn't that true?
We talked about happiness. From this perspective we have to truly understand
what is the happy way of life. Then if we choose to live in this fashion,
we don't want to attract love or anything at all, but people will come in
spite of that and recognize you and love you. Then you are where God wants
you to be. Through logic and reason, we see clearly that in this huge and
complicated world every imaginable wall exists. You cannot even travel a
short distance without being blocked by some kind of wall. Only through true
love you can go anywhere you choose-a good place or a bad place. You can go
anywhere with true love.
Which travels ahead of an individual, true love or true life? Which one
will pull which? [True love will pull true life.] Are you sure? What you
have just said is; in order to follow true love you have to give up your
life. Very interesting. Is it true or not? There is absolute power in that
understanding. Now we are aware of the truthful statement in the Bible. Jesus
always tried to teach men, "If you want to live, you must die."
Another paradoxical thing he said is, your own family is your enemy. No one
could ever understand this. Your family pulls you back and says, "Be
comfortable." That will prevent you from going to heaven. Today's world
challenges us greatly. Christians say, "Believe and you will go to
heaven." We know this is not true. How can we just believe and go to
heaven? We have to believe and do before we can go to heaven.
The world is full of true love like it is filled with air. The space of
the world is filled with air isn't it? Now don't you experience within your
small family and between brothers and sisters, that you cannot make another
person do your will, right? An elder brother especially will never listen
to his younger sister. Even in a small family there are walls. How can we
bring them down and penetrate them? Pushing them down is one way, but can you
successfully do that? Can you force your way in? Or because you are so smart
can you sweet talk others and bring down the walls? It might work at first,
but once they find out they've been deceived they'll come and pay you back
with biting! That is human nature.
But love is different. Love is the only way you can penetrate the
walls. Only true love can do it. The conclusion is simple. Father has a
secret to share here. Let's say within a family there is an older brother
who is really a tyrant because he is the heir. He is an impossible person,
like a bear who won't budge. Nothing will make him move. But his little
sister can penetrate him with true love. She will make a small hole in his
wall, but he won't mind. In fact he will ask for more. That bear-like man
won't mind this in true love. So the hole becomes bigger until she can run a
thread through it. Then she breaks through another hole, and this time runs
a thicker thread through it. Later she can use a rope, and eventually this
little sister will be able to get her brother to be any way she likes him to
be. The love of a small woman can have that kind of strong power. Is it clear?
These thick walls are penetrable by love. We often talk about the
messiah. But who and what is he? He thinks about breaking through these
walls and nothing else. In a way, he is a specialist who is always thinking,
awake or asleep, about how to penetrate different walls. He doesn't want
to just penetrate the wall, he wants to build a road and pave it so that
many can come in with no problem. He is a highway builder. Messiahship
is accomplished by the one who does this at the cost of his own pain and
sacrifice. He endures pain and works hard knowing that this road will benefit
more than just his family. Millions and billions of people will benefit from
this highway. Without it they could not go anywhere. The messiah knows this
better than any other person. He does not proclaim himself, but other people
looking at his work and realizing the benefit it brings, will make him the
center of his home, his clan, nation, and the whole world.
Everyone will fight to make him the king of kings. They will look at him
forever not only as their king, but their True Parent, also true teacher
and true owner.
Who is the true teacher? He is the one who teaches everything he knows
that is absolutely necessary for everyone. Without knowledge he knows that
people cannot amount to anything, so he teaches them again and again. If
there is nothing more to teach he will even research something new so he
can have more to teach. That is a true teacher. Do you understand?
He is a true owner at the same time. What does that mean? He not only owns
this position himself, but he wants to give this true ownership to everyone
forever and ever. He wants to make all men owners, so that they don't have
to belong to anyone else. For example, America is a great country. If someone
was the true owner of America he wouldn't stop there. He would create an even
bigger country outside. This true owner would be twice as rich then, but he
wouldn't want to keep it. He wants to give it to everyone. He creates and
gives, over and over. He doesn't take and give. Let us assume there is such
an owner, a man of heart. God has a big gift box that He is dying to give
away. He is trying to find someone worthy of receiving it. Is any American
qualified to receive the big blessings of God? We aren't that way now, but
even the fact we are thinking that we need to become that qualified person
will make God happy. God then has hope at least. He is waiting for the day
He can give this big box to the true owner.
Father's topic this morning is the realm of Heavenly liberation. What kind
of place is heaven? Here in this world, we need our eyes. Is heaven a place
where we no longer need them? We need our eyes in heaven too. Our eyes are
dying to see the sights and scenes of true love in heaven. In heaven will
men's eyes by intoxicated by looking at another man? What will men's eyes
want to look at? What will women's eyes want to look at? [Someone answers,
"A true man will want to look at a true woman."] What do you mean
by true man? The hairiest man?
A true man is the one who has given up his life 100 times for others.
The one who has given up his life more than 100 times is a more true man. You
become more true in that fashion. Which kind of true man do you want to
be? Do you want to give up your life just ten times, or 100 times or a million
times? If there was such a person in the spirit world and your eyes could see
him, what kind of relationship would you have with him? How can you envelope
him? One way you can relate to that true man even though you may not be as
great as him, is to become like a child to him. Trust yourself to him. How
can you refuse a small innocent child who is completely trusting you and feels
most peaceful in your bosom? Isn't that one way of being a part of that true
man? Any mother would give all her five senses and all her attention to that
baby. She would devote everything to that child. What about God? Is God too
great to be involved in that? God too, just like a devoted mother would pay
all His attention to that baby. We prize concepts and good talk but would you
trade that baby's reality for millions and billions of concepts and words? No,
this reality is greater. This entity of true love can never be traded. No one
would want to trade him for millions of words or concepts or acts of love.
Is it easy or difficult to go to heaven? [Difficult.] How difficult?
Let us think about one simple criteria. In the fallen world we always struggle
to survive and go to heaven. Who has more chance of going to heaven? The one
who fights the battle and survives or the one who fights and loses in this
world. The one who wins over the battle in this evil world is the one who has
the chance of going to heaven. If your loving wife says, "Oh, there are
too many walls and they are too high to go over, why don't we just give it up
now?", can that couple go to heaven? The husband should say, "Satan,
get behind me." The wife will not retreat peacefully either. She will
jump, scratch and bite. If that is your wife will you fight against her or
will you just give up fighting? Wait until she gets tired. Run her down and
then carry her over into heaven. Father would like to see one example of this
among the thousands of Unification Church members in America. If anyone has
seen that person, please let Father know. Children will fight against you
too. What can the parents do? They must put up with them and persevere. The
country will throw a tantrum too, demanding that you aren't being reasonable.
They will do everything, perhaps even putting you into jail. What can
you do? All we have to do is persevere. Maybe you barely manage to gain the
recognition of your country. Then the world will come against you, saying,
"We don't need a saint from another country. We will produce saints of
our own country." They want to protect themselves and push you out so
what can you do? You are only a small man and not powerful yet. Can you hope
to fight against them equally and still hope to go to heaven? No, you cannot
go to heaven fighting. You simply have to persevere and do more.
We know now that God is the king of perseverance and He apparently still
has a longer way to go and persevere. Therefore we must simply do the same;
persevere and try harder, until God doesn't have to persevere anymore.
Satan has been building walls throughout history. He will stop true man's
approach to his goal. But the true man should not fight against him. He should
persevere and even love Satan more and after all this is done, even Satan
will be able understand the power and happiness of love. Then Satan will
bow down to the true man saying, "Your way is better than mine. Let
me surrender to that idea and learn that new way of life from you."
This is the day when the solution to this complex world will begin. Once
that happens the problems will be solved in no time.
How many people are willing to keep the same stance as God and that true
man? Forget how many, is there even one person who has mentioned that stance
here in the human world? Did anyone even teach this? What kind of person is
Reverend Moon, the leader of the Unification Church? He is the only person
who knows God's tradition of sacrifice. He is the only person who knows who
God is and what God has been doing all throughout history. Following this
tradition faithfully, he has penetrated all the walls of the individual level,
the family level, even to the highest level of Satan himself.
Now Father met Kim Il Sung. Father has now realized exactly what he
envisioned. Only through true love could Father penetrate the thickest,
biggest wall of communism and Kim Il Sung; the worst impenetrable wall the
world has known. Father understood that the course he has been following
was exactly right. He completely got what he expected out of Kim Il Sung.
Even Father was challenged in that situation. In 1976 or '78, Kim Il Sung
employed twenty six assassins to kill Father. Kikamura was one of them. His
trial is still pending in the United States courts. Not just one or two
people were sent after Father, but over twenty and this is addition to the
KGB which was at its strongest at that time.
How could Father go over that? He didn't try to destroy them, but tried
to love them and digest them and penetrate that thick wall so he could reach
behind the Iron Curtain with brotherly love. It was not easy. It was relatively
easy for Reverend Moon to love his own wife, children and disciples, but to
love the archenemy of God and himself was not easy. How to accomplish that
was his own challenge. Now Father could be so comforted in knowing that his
understanding and actions were right and that his efforts were not in vain.
Father's meeting with Gorbachev seemed to be a very simple encounter, but
this isn't so. It took all the energy Father had to survive and reach that
point. After Gorbachev was penetrated by true love, he gave in and discussed
many things with Reverend Moon. Look at how much the world changed in such
a short time of one year. That is the Principle of "plus power."
If there is a strong positive, a strong negative will come out of nowhere into
existence right away. Even Kim Il Sung, the strong minus, has an original mind,
deeply hidden and guarded. But when this strong positive force like the core
of God appears, he will be switched. The contents will be communicated and
this giant plus and minus will mingle into one.
It is just like when a parent is dying and wants to communicate his will. No
child, not even a bad one can resist that. By the same token this tremendous
power of the true love of God was always directed to Kim Il Sung. When Kim
Il Sung heard Reverend Moon speak, he could not resist. He opened his mind
and received a flood of thought. Reverend Moon spoke to him on that level,
saying "Don't forget what I say." In spite of himself, Kim will
do things and think things. He didn't plan for it to happen that way. Some
call that a miracle but we would rather say a new creation is taking place.
As human beings, all of us have to stand in Father's position and meet our
challenge as individuals born here on earth. Have we ever loved another human
being so deeply? Have you loved your wife the way a true husband would love
her? Have you loved your husband the way a true wife would? As a parent,
have we loved our children so truly? Have we ever loved our parents so
truly? These are the points we have to challenge ourselves on today. We
need to go exactly the same way as God and Father did. The ones who can
reach the realm of heavenly liberation will be a true brother, a true child,
a true couple and true parents also. He will be a true ancestor. These are
all categorized as the true generation. For the true generation, all the
walls that we find in the world will not exist in the realm of heavenly
liberation. All the walls will be gone, therefore all can go into heaven.
No matter how many people are living now, or how many lived in the past and
are now in spirit world, by participating in the same love, they all have
the ability to eventually go to this realm. In the same way children have
the ability to go where their parents go.
If your finger has the touch of true love it doesn't matter where you
push through. It may be painful, but if it is a finger of true love you
don't mind. Actually that pain is a pleasure. A true love finger can travel
anywhere and no one will mind.
The model of all the achievements here is simple enough: God gave us
family. The regret and sorrow of God is that until this moment he could not
find a text with which he could teach his loving children. He simply did not
have a textbook. Why? Because everything is fallen, there is no prototype
for such a textbook.
We must understand and go along with God's historical desire and deep wish
to teach right things to His true children. God's other regret and deep sorrow
has been that He could not find love between brothers. When we say brothers,
sisters are included. Saying brothers and sisters doesn't just mean between
two people, there could be as many as thirteen or fourteen brothers and
sisters. There was no textbook for God to teach them how they should live
their lives. They remained ignorant. Another of God's deep regrets is that He
could not make a textbook by which He could teach the true husband and wife
relationship. Husband and wife could not learn anything because there was
no textbook and God couldn't make it because there was no example. Today it
doesn't exist either. Nor could God teach true parents proper conduct towards
their children. That textbook is not there. These four textbooks are lacking.
As soon as these four textbooks are complete and everybody learns their
secrets, then Satan will be completely expelled from the face of this
earth. Then we will see the kingdom of heaven come on this earth. We won't
have to wait to go to spirit world to see it. At that time no messiah, nor
even religion will be necessary because people will already have fulfilled
the goal of the messiah and religion. That is a world where everyone is
intoxicated just as if they drank a lot of wine. They would be drunk with
love. They wouldn't want any more. Everybody would be full. That world is
full of happiness and no want.
How then will God go about compiling those textbooks? For that purpose
God picked one person who represents all manhood. He then picked out one
woman to represent all womanhood. Centering on this couple, all perfection
will take place when these four textbooks have been completed.
Here we focused on true love, that a man representing all mankind will live
in true love. That true love will be the same among children and brothers
and sisters and life. All these four loves are there. After that textbook
is complete, is it easy or difficult to learn? After the book is written it
is easy. Thanks to Father we already know the reason for our existence. We
already know that woman exists for the sake of man and man exists for the
sake of woman and that parents exist for the sake of children and children
exist for the sake of their parents. Every individual lives for the sake
of another, going beyond his own life to love others.
Why is it that a man needs a woman and a woman needs a man, absolutely and
with no exception? If a couple gets along fine alone, why is it that they need
to have children? Why is it that the more children they have, the better? Why
not just one child? Because if there are more subjects and objects of love,
there is so much more you learn. The larger the family the better.
Look at it this way. Why does man need woman? Because he needs a textbook
to learn from. Man learns from woman. This was why God brought man and woman
into existence. Why do we need brothers and sisters? So that we can learn
to love the parents. Without loving each other, they cannot properly learn
to love the parents. In this way every individual component is created for
the sake of others. Amen!
If a brother loves so much that his whole purpose of existence is for
his family members, and he lives that way more and more, even though it
hurts him and he is not paid back for his efforts, he must then forget the
hurt and begin again and again. His brothers are there to love him and he is
there to love his brothers. God also looks down at him. All three elements
of love are directed toward that individual. This is a holy position where
he is the essence of God's love.
Why should a family live for the sake of the nation? Why don't we just
forget about the country? It is because a country is not just one family. There
are hundreds, and thousands, even millions of families like your own. That
makes a nation a million times more precious than one family. It is the
law of recreation, that the smaller entity should be absorbed by the larger
entity. God created it that way. When you come to think like this, go into the
subway and look around. You see so many people who aren't just individuals, but
heads of their families. Each one has a precious family as you do. You come
to revere them and be sympathetic to their problems of managing a family. It
may even strike you as awesome how so many people realize a family and reach
to God. Think about those among them who will become prominent statesmen
and maybe one day a president who can bring this country into prosperity and
peace. Another may become a great doctor who one day when you need him can
provide the cure for your problems. Then you can come to respect them. You
will feel that all those people are there for your sake, able to provide for
you as much as you can give to them. When you feel this respect towards them,
it will be followed by love. Then you will feel thankfulness for everything.
Isn't it true that if you think like this in a crowd, then God looks
down at you and will say, "He or she thinks like me." He cannot
miss that. After that, God will get right behind that person and protect
him. When he is going into danger God will preserve him from the danger. This
is reality. God truly does that.
Doing as much as Father has done for this country, how can he suppress
his anger and disappointment? America is traditionally a country where they
treat guests well. But Father is the guest of all guests. There has never
been any more valuable guest to come to America throughout history. But he
received nothing but persecution here. How does Father overcome that? Father
says these people must want to see the character of God beyond any dispute or
doubt or compromise in their imagination. They all want to see the perfect
personality and character of God in Father, so Father keeps on persevering,
thinking, "Thank you. You are trying to help me become more perfect. So
I will try better and harder." This is the way Father has lived in
America. Jesus didn't feel anger at those who pierced him with the spear. He
simply felt sorry for them. Jesus felt more pitiful than angry towards the mob.
[Referring to drawing on board.] All the steps here line up in a vertical
arrangement. This family system is a unit. The national level is an expansion
of the same situation. It expands to the world level with the same contents
and same situation. That will expand to the cosmos and then the greatest
expansion place which is heaven. Do you understand? The concept and contents
is the same. That is living for the sake of others.
Father's conclusion: there is no one living entity which exists for its
own sake. Not one. Isn't it true that man and woman are even physically built
for each other? Did God create man first and then see what was happening? Or
did God have the concept of love very clear before He started to create
human beings? Man's reality is to live for the sake of others. That is God's
concept. Man must live for others. First comes concept and that is to love
others. Second is reality and that is the opposite sex and partnership. Man
first has to think about love and then he has to think about woman. But this
love is for the sake of others. If he thinks about himself, he is Satan. If
he thinks about everyone except himself, he is God-like.
Father lived for the sake of Kim Il Sung too. It is not because Kim Il
Sung drew Father but Father drew Kim Il Sung. Father confirmed this to us
today. America also may go against Father, but there will be one day when
the whole country will kneel down before Reverend Moon once they know what
he has been doing for America. The question will be who won? You know the
answer. As of today, is America winning or is Reverend Moon winning? In
terms of true love Reverend Moon won. He won in terms of God's formula.
Reverend Moon carried on that same way of life in Danbury prison. It also
worked there. For some reason all the prison inmates were drawn to Reverend
Moon. They didn't know why, but they felt drawn to him. There always seemed
to be more people in the room where Father was. No one told them to do that,
but they naturally did. When they finished their terms and were about to
leave, they would always come to report to Father. They would cry just like
they were leaving their own family. Reverend Moon was only a yellow guy,
but these white men would come to him with respect. How about you? Do you
love me or not? How much? Even though we would have to give up America, we
would rather follow Father. So the nationality boundary, the race boundary,
the tradition and cultural boundaries are no problem. We can solve all of
them with unification. Let's do it! That's all!
Now we see the possibility of heaven being liberated. Heaven is bound
and gagged now, but this is the way we can liberate it. Then all things are
restored as God intended. The liberation of women will also take place. This
is where the four textbooks will be fulfilled. With that, God will be able
to travel anywhere He wants. He will be able to direct all mankind into any
direction He wants. There will be no more sorrow, no more burden and no more
tasks to do. God will finally rest. This is the realm of the liberation of
heaven. This is where God can rest in peace for the first time. We must realize
that we are living for that day. We are living according to the textbook on
how to become true children, how to become true brothers and sisters to each
other, how to become a true husband or wife and how to become true parents.
When we live like this we are surely and steadily going to this area of
liberated heaven where even hell can be converted into heaven. We must
understand that ahead of us, True Parents are treading surely into that
direction. That is all they are doing.
In True Parent's family, these four textbooks are already well under
way. The textbook to learn what true children should be is first. Secondly,
the textbook which teaches what true brothers and sisters should be. Third, the
textbook which teaches what true couples, or true husband and wife should be
and lastly what the true parents should be. Those four textbooks are already
healthily well underway. That is what the true family is developing. Amen!
[Father addressed each of his sons by name] All brothers, you have
to memorize Father's speech this morning. Do you understand? [Then his
daughters] You have to make that standard of a true family system. Do you
understand? You have to make that kind of tradition. Its not so easy. Don't
forget Father's speech this morning. Say it in a loud voice. Yes!
