Earthly Life and Spirit World (Part 1)
by Rev. Sun Myung Moon
Section 4. The Position And Real Image Of The Spirit World
1. Position In The Spirit World
In this age, you should recognize the spirit world. The spirit world until today resembles the angelic world. The Unification Church members' position is the same as before Adam and Eve fell; that is, we are living in the realm where Adam and Eve had not fallen. If we see this realm from the spirit world, it is the same as the paradise that appears on the earth. (54:229)
If I do not clearly explain how to go to the eternal world, big trouble will occur. When people die, everyone goes to the spirit world. After you go there, whom are you going to follow? Would you call "Father"? Or would you not call me? Who would not call me? Raise your hands. When you go to the spirit world and call "Father," I will appear.
If you appear in the spirit world, I will appear, and if I appear, you will appear. This is the spirit world. If you want to see a particular person in the spirit world, centered on the vertical line and the horizontal line, making your heart right and standing on the horizon, and you call his name, he will appear. If Unification Church members call their ancestors of millions years ago, even their first ancestors, they will be able to see their first, second, third, and gradually all their ancestors.
If you ask them, "Should I greet you, or should you greet me"? they may answer that the descendant should greet the ancestor. However, in the Genesis Age (or Re-creation Age) they must realize that the grandchild becomes the first ancestor. Amen. That is Genesis (Restoration). Father stands in the son's position. The grandfather becomes the grandson's position. The very first grandfather stands in the latest descendant's position.
When you go to the spirit world, such an order would be established in your lineage. How would you recognize this status? Viewed from the blood lineage standard, the root was changed due to the Fall.
When the root is transplanted into the original position, the middle part of the root can connect with the middle bud and grow. I established this tradition. (197:94)
Since the spirit world transcends time and space, the sorrow of six thousand years ago remains eternally in the historical realm. If you feel joy in the experience of making an offering, then even though it occurred at a particular time, you will never forget it for the rest of your life. The more days, months, and years pass by, the experience will expand and deepen. It will become a worshipped object, and it will be connected with the unlimited origin.
If you have such a holy experience from now on, and act with such a holy sense, you will recognize that God's sorrowful suffering is not temporal but is continuously connected. That is true. (29:294)
In the spirit world, what if someone wants to change the color of his skin. What do you think? He could do it. In that case, what problem will occur in the human world? A light must be bright. What is a light? The light of love. In order to brighten your light, you must catch on fire internally and externally. By what do you catch on fire? You should catch on fire by generating energy to love. You have to unleash this energy everywhere, east and west. Love is able to do such a thing. When we come to understand this, all events in this world become just passing travel stops. (194:56)
2. The Real Image Of The Spirit World
If you go to the spirit world, you will be able to see the whole spirit world as one body. The whole world is seen as one body. God is subject, and the whole world becomes one big body. If this occurs, the whole spirit world and the physical world will be completely melted into one. If God jumps, the earth will jump. If God laughs, the earth will laugh. This is the way life should be.
You should recognize that the spirit world is like one person as it functions. People like saints take the role of eyes and ears, and nose to smell. This is the way it is in the spirit world. If you think in such a way, it is not wrong. Do you understand what I am talking about? (Yes.) (91-280)
If God laughs, the whole world would laugh together. This is the spirit world. When you go to the spirit world, it is like the world of intuition. God likes or dislikes. God today has good feelings or bad feelings. If something joyful happens in the physical world and the spirit world sees that God is joyful over it, then the whole spirit world puffs up. It floats up. (193:263)
If you go to the spirit world and look, you will quickly understand what I have said. If you enter the spirit world, you will understand. Then explanation is not necessary. You will recognize quickly who someone is and what he is like. Even though I am educating you today, if you believe in what I say, you will believe; if you do not believe, you will not believe. Even though such a true founder of the Unification Church dedicated his whole life to wandering between life and death, and discovered the truth that could solve all things, you do not listen to what I say. Do you believe, or don't you believe? If you say, "My custom is like this, therefore it may be right," If you think in such a way, you shall perish.
If you listen, you have to turn around at once. If you do not listen, how many degrees off will you be? You will go to the other world. You will soon go to the spirit world, won't you? Once you go to there, you will recognize whether what I say is true or not. At that time, it is too late to say "Oh." Even the church director or his grandfather is not able to change the law.
All humankind has to follow the spiritual standard. You should not become a failure by going off in the wrong direction.
When I go to the spirit world, I have to do many things. When I think about them, I do not have a desire to live long. Trouble will occur if I live too long. Where is Mother? (He laughs.) Since I have been speaking often about the spirit world recently, she says to me, "Do not talk about the spirit world." (He laughs.) You do not know the spirit world.
When you go to the spirit world, you are able to even go through a mountain. There is no obstacle against motion in the spirit world. Since the spirit world is the place for those with heavenly original character, it should not have any obstacles. Everything goes through. Because spirit world transcends time and space, people who lived hundreds of millions of years ago exist there. They are there. They are able to appear as young as they wish. Therefore, you are able to see such people.
It is not necessary to explain anything there, and there is no excuse. If you look, you will recognize this at once. You will understand whether a person's position is below you, beside you, or above you. Even if you meet a grandfather who lived hundreds of millions of years ago, you will see his position of love. The love position is absolute. Those who got some high position in a self-centered way must reside in the appropriate area in spirit world. They are not able to act quickly there. It is different from in the physical world. If they got promoted by plotting and slandering, then they will be upside down in the spirit world. Everything becomes opposite. Therefore, look to righteousness. Look to the true way. (194:133)
You do not know the reality of the spirit world, do you? When you go to the spirit world, you will be able to call people who lived millions of years ago. If you call out, "Please come out, the person who lived million of years ago in my tribe and resembles me, if such a person exists, please come out," then he will definitely appear. If you ask him how many years ago he lived, he will answer that he was born eight hundred years ago, or hundreds of thousands of years ago. Even though you meet him for the first time, you will quickly recognize his position. You will even understand how he lived. Isn't it convenient? Isn't it wonderful? (Yes, it is wonderful.) (199:130)
3. The Pride Of The Spirit World
How can old people work for God's Providence? When the physical body becomes old, its functions are limited. How can old people support in light of this? I am researching this. At a time when the physical body and the spiritual body must be united to work hard but the physical body is gradually weakening, how can they do it? I am preparing for this. What do you think? Shall I teach?
What is the problem? You have to start anew. In order to start anew, discover something new every day. The person who discovers something new will absolutely not become a failure. Even if he meets with difficulties, he will not become depressed. On the contrary, he will enjoy the challenge.
A while ago, someone visited me and mentioned that it was a very dry life to just sit and work in the Victory Over Communism League office. He said that when he sees church leaders, he remembers that in the past he had worked as though his life depended on it. He missed the church and visited brothers and sisters to have give and take with them. He misses his past. When I think about his situation, I really understand. Now you come to understand.
In the spirit world, this is your only pride: with your life, how much you loved people and gave them life. This is your pride. This is the reality. Beyond your tribe, how much you loved other races and gave them life. This is your fortune. This is your only fortune.
In the spirit world, there is nothing to miss. However, you will miss true people the most. Those devoted subjects who sacrificed to raise and educate true people will naturally become the glorious sons and daughters of heaven. Therefore, in the spirit world, that is your only pride. (30:147)
When God sees you in the spirit world, if you enter the place where your heart rings by the bell of love, the light of love becomes gradually large. This light shines with five colors. From God's eyes, it looks brighter than a diamond.
This is not only a good light, but it has taste. Taste. Do you understand what it is? The more you see, it is wonderful. The more you see, it is joyful. The more you see, you will become intoxicated. You will become really intoxicated. Therefore, God says the word "love."
If you ring the bell of your heart (Father hits the desk and speaks), then heaven and earth will be moved. If your bell moves heaven and earth, and moves all races, God will move. You have to realize that there is such a bell. Therefore, how many tears you shed for love and how much you have experience of love, that is your fortune. (103:28)
4. The Unification Church And The Spirit World
Think, how many spirits are on our side in the spirit world? Think how many hundreds of billions of spirits there are. Comparing spirits in the spirit world with the U.S. population, which is more? (The spirits are more.) How many more? Who is on our side? God is on our side. God. Our president is God. Do you follow?
How big is God? He created the universe. Even the solar system is huge. Think of the solar system. If God blows, does the United States blow away? Does it blow away? It will blow away and quickly perish. What? Is the United States large? Does it have great power? In front of God, it is nothing. Do you understand?
We are heavenly people who have world kingship. Not only that but we are also heavenly ambassadors. When such ambassadors thoroughly negotiate with the enemy, they will not compromise while following the heavenly command. Even though the Russian ambassador to the United States is living in the center of America, he does not listen to America's command; he listens to the Kremlin's command. Likewise, even though we are living in the satanic world, we live to listen to the heavenly command.
You have to realize that a huge foundation -- that is, the spirit world -- exists behind the Unification Church. If a U.S. citizen living in a small village in Africa is harmed, it becomes a direct problem for the State Department and the White House. Likewise, if we are living in a country and become the victim of some tragic incident, it will become a heavenly problem, a Unification Church problem, and it will be discussed and compensation will be claimed for damage. You have to recognize the reality that you are standing in such a position. Have you thought in this way? Therefore, do not become pessimistic. Do not become pessimistic. Even though people slander you, boldly receive it and live boldly. Do you follow? (Yes!) (96:85)
The Unification Church is able to mobilize a person spiritually and has the ability to mobilize ancestors through a consolidation system. You have to know this. Since religions until today were not able to connect the physical world with the spirit world, they spiritually offered all their efforts with a true heart and were able to connect with the spirit by harmonizing vertically the spiritual rhythm and wave motion.
However, today we have entered the time when we ourselves are the spiritual broadcast station. Our position is like a vibrating board. It is not the wave itself but a transmission station to generate the wave. If it is switched on, you will be able to control the transmission of thousands of cycling waves, tens of thousands of cycling waves, or short waves, and you will be able to generate the wavelength and radio waves. If you have a broadcast station and say, "Ancestors in the spirit world, please come to support me. Good ancestors, please come to support me. I need such vibration," then they will come at once to support you. You can even call an individual spirit man and he will be mobilized, and you can call family spirits and they will be mobilized.
Since the foundation for connecting with the tribal realm level, national realm level, and world realm level were established on the earth and such an age has come, the spirits will be mobilized and come down to earth. In this way, even though people's bodies try to go in one direction, without knowing it they will be spontaneously pulled in God's direction. If two spirit beings come down to pull one physical being and he does not realize he is being pulled, he will be pulled anyway. Is there any way more special than this way? Do you believe it? (Yes.) This is not a useless theory. It is logical. (162:105)
5. Unification Church Members And The Spirit World
You! (Yes.) Do you have confidence that the spirit world works with you? (Yes.) Since I speak about such a spirit world, you look resentful. (It is not true.)
When you die and go in front of Heaven and make an accounting of all the things that you have done, you would not first report the good things. Do you understand? (Yes.) You have to first report what you have done wrong, and next the good things that you have done. Isn't it the opposite in this world? If someone asks, "What did you do?" usually people answer, "I have done such and such good things." Likewise, they hide wrong things. However, the spirit world is different. In the spirit world, we have to first report our mistakes. This is spiritual law. When you report, the events will appear like water bubbles. They will be shown as if on a television monitor. You first have to report the bad things. Why? Cain is first. Evil is first. Evil appeared first on the earth. Goodness comes next? Abel appeared second. If you compare the good things you have done with the bad things you have done, when the good things, or Abel standard, becomes higher than the bad, or Cain standard, they will reeducate you and explain to the spirit world.
The Unification Church members will first enter into hell. After they enter hell, someone must be sent to pull them out. Do you understand what I am talking? Someone would have to come forward and state that in the past this person had worked centered on God's providence while the True Parents were on the earth, and he would pull him up from hell. There is no forgiveness if you do not live seriously. If a halfhearted life were enough, I would have lived halfheartedly. Isn't that right? If it were fine for me to live as I wish, I would do so. During my life, I was sent to prison many times, and people pointed at me and ordered that I must be hit or killed. Why do I live this way? Even though the world clamors against me, why do I live this way? I have to. I cannot do a little here and a little there. (196:285)
We are wonderful people. The world envies you, heaven and earth envy you, and all saints and scholars in the spirit world envy you. You are boldly walking on your life path. Heaven cannot disregard you; Heaven not only praises you but also can come to visit you to say, "I love you." You are wonderful people who are living with such a background of experience. Is it right? How is it? (171:29)
6. Korean Custom And The Spirit World
(Here Father answers questions from the German brothers and sisters at the Unification Church in Essen on March 24, 1972.)
Question: When did Koreans become the chosen people?
Answer: The Messiah must come and establish a foundation. Even though Korea is the chosen nation, it was not elevated to the chosen nation; that position is determined. Even though Korea was chosen, if it were not united with Christianity, a problem would remain.
In the East, the Korean people, who have a long history, are unique. Korea has never invaded other countries, although it was often attacked throughout history. It is a miracle that Korea survived among the other strong countries. It is due to heavenly protection that it has survived.
You have to realize that all the customs in Korea are really similar to Jewish customs. When I came to understand the spirit world, I found that Korean customs are similar to the spirit world's customs. The time when they bear babies, the time when they marry, their lifestyle -- thinking of all the ceremonies, I found that many Korean customs are similar to the spirit world's principled ways.
At a table setting for dinner, a pair of chopsticks is placed, and next to the chopsticks is a spoon. These are always at the center of a table setting. You will also find food in bowls that are prepared considering the harmony of the plus and minus relationship; that is, the positive and negative relationship. Koreans eat in this way.
Koreans set numbers centered on the number seven. And after bearing a baby, there is a three-day separation. After marriage, there is a three-day separation. After passing away, there is a three-day separation. Historically they also really respect traditional things.
7. The Korean Language And The Spirit World
When you enter heaven, if speaking the national language is one of the subjects, what are you going to do? They will ask you, "Do you speak the national language?" "Do you know the national language?" The homeland language. This is the Principle. In accordance with the Principle, Adam and Eve's sons and daughters would speak the language that Adam and Eve spoke. Do you think that they would speak a different language? English is the Archangel language; that is, it belongs to the fallen leader of the angels. It is a shame.
This is the viewpoint of the Principle. If you do not understand this, a problem will occur when you enter heaven. When you go to the spirit world, your ancestors will point at you and accuse you, saying, "Even though you served the True Parents, you did not learn Korean."
Korean is not just Korean, it is the True Parents' language. The True Parents were born in Korea, so there is nothing we can do about it. Do you follow what I am talking about? (Yes.) Who among you are going to learn Korean? Raise your hands. (128:245)
8. The Spirit World's Activity Stage
As you are aware, in the spirit world there is no procreation. When you go to the spirit world, you may ask a spirit, "Where were you born?" The place where spirits were born is on planet earth only. Sometimes when you ask a spirit, he may answer, "I am from another planet." At that time, you may think that humans are also born and live on other planets, and then they come here. However, it is not true. The spirit world expands to the east and west, to the south and north, in all four directions.
This universe is the spirit world's activity stage. At the same time that this world is the spirit world's activity stage, the huge universe is also the spirit world's activity stage. Today, it takes twelve years to go to Neptune by satellite. A satellite goes to Neptune, takes photos, and sends them to Earth. These photos are then shown to the public. We now live in such an age.
On this earth, in this physical world, we are able to connect with the universe. Viewed from God's providence, it means symbolically that heavenly people are now living on the earth -- people who have not fallen and have reached the standard where they are able to always connect with numerous ancestors who have spread throughout the huge universe. In this physical world, this is indicated symbolically by the satellite exposing the universe. (196:215)
9. The Spirit World's Possession
When you look at the spirit world's universe, can you find diamond stars? Are there precious stone stars? Everything belongs to you. With such a joy, you will live in the spirit world. You will live to look at the astonishing creation that God made. This is the ideal world where the loving family, God's loving family harmonized as a whole, is able to live and move together. Would you like to be part of this family? (Yes!)
The people who sacrifice completely and are able to stand up may become courageous leaders. The people who live with a lukewarm attitude will become failures in the spirit world. Such people who are below the standard of goodness will be tested for hundreds of millions of years. You surely have to recognize that there is no exception to this law, even for blessed couples.
Won't you follow Father? (Yes!) I am going toward such a wonderful place. Shall I stop you from going with me? Even though I disregard you, you have to go. Isn't it right? I am teaching which way you should go. I am teaching everything. If you die, you will know. Is it right? Is it not right? Until today, you have not understood the spirit world, how religion came about, why our hearts are pushed even though we are persecuted, why we have to continue going in such a way with destiny. When the Unification Church age came, I discovered the origin and the content, and established the foundation by myself.
You have to realize the astonishing fact that I have solved problems in the spirit world and the physical world, as well as all the complicated thought in the human world, and I have established one simple direction. As a result, you are able to recognize clear value in your life. With each step you take, you are not confused and divided. The more each step develops, the more energy you get. The force of original love responds to the self-living realm. Therefore, people are born with love, are loved, love people, and go to the loving world. They go back to God. The resultant beings should go back to the Cause, shouldn't they? Therefore, you have to think like God. (126:145)
10. God And The Spirit World
When you go to the spirit world, you absolutely cannot see God. God's being exists. You are able to hear His voice, but you are not able to see Him with your eyes. However, who appears as God's real figure? Until today, Jesus has appeared. If the coming Messiah comes, he will appear as God's representative. What will Jesus' position become? Jesus will be His first son. Do you follow? That is the first time you have heard such a thing, isn't it? What will happen with Jesus? He will become the Son of God. (155:320)
