Way Of Unification (Part 2)
by Rev. Sun Myung Moon
Section 1. National Federation For The Unification Of North And South (Part 1)
1. The Message Of The National Federation For The Unification Of North And South
My Dear Countrymen who are patriotic and who are wishing for unification! Today we are here attending an event that every Korean deeply longs for, the Inauguration of the National Federation Movement for the Unification of North and South.
We are the "Korean People"; we are brothers of this word; we are a single people. We have the history of 5,000 everlasting years, a brilliant culture and tradition and an excellent language, and we use these things for love and peace.
We are of the same form, same destiny. We have inherited the same blood lineage and have the same beautiful nature. However, this is already the 42nd year of the historical division of North and South, something that no one welcomed; not even nature desired it. The great and joyful independence which was paid for by the blood of sincere patriots 40 years ago was lost instantly, and so miserably; amidst their suffering the division of our people and the emergence of North and South occurred.
How long will the miserable tragedy of our people continue? Should we abandon the hope of unifying the fatherland, of unifying our people, since there seems to be no sign of unifying North and South? (May 15, 1987 at the Little Angels Art Hall, Seoul, Korea)
2) The Reason to Organize The National Federation
My fellow countrymen, here today, I am proclaiming that the unification of our Fatherland will be achieved absolutely and that the time is imminent. Today, we are here to kindle this disposition by establishing the National Foundation for the Unification of North and South.
Ever since 1945, we have sought how we can brightly achieve the restoration of our homeland. The independence and clear restoration of our great homeland this century was accomplished by two factors.
One is the movement for independence by patriots inside Korea and abroad who for 36 years had shed their blood in defiance of Japanese imperialism. The other factor is the defeat of Japanese Imperialism at the end of World War II, which brought world peace. Suddenly, because of these two factors, our homeland was established.
In a similar fashion, the unification of North and South will be accomplished. The corruption in the Communist world centered on the USSR, which lasted for almost 70 years, is drawing near its end. Its 70-year history of failure has not hidden the fact that it is a farce and a deception. The decline of the Communist ideology is connected with the fate of Kim Il Sung in North Korea and this will be the element that will influence the unification of North and South worldwide.
Because of the changes in the world situation, we need to have faith; we need a movement inside our nation and abroad that will work for the unification of North and South Korea. We must burn with the fire of wishing for our unification. There is an old Korean proverb, "Where there is a will there is a way"; also, another wise Korean maxim, "Sincerity reaches to Heaven." How can we desire unification without wishing and being determined more than heaven and earth, more than North Korea? We must be burning with the desire for unification. This is the reason why we are here today-to establish the "National Federation Movement for the Unification of North and South."
3) The 38th Parallel
Today, first of all, we need to realize that the 38th Parallel is not just a geographical division but that the 38th Parallel is a resentful dividing line of blood lineage and of ideologies that are contrary to each other.
During the Korean War we killed one another while belonging to the same people; it was not that we did not know that we were not of different people, not of different blood lineage. This happened due to the differing views of value that could not meet half-way. This severed our nation's ties and blood lineage. This then became a terrible, fearful wall that separated relations between father and son.
4) Confrontation of Theism and Atheism
So, what is the basic difference between these viewpoints of value that are against each other?
The basic confrontation of these views of value that is similar to the confrontation centered on the 38th parallel is the confrontation between theism and atheism. First of all, the Communist ideology starts with the absolute denial of God's existence. Since God is non-existent, the concept of absolute value and the standard of good and evil are also non-existent. Therefore in the principle of Communist revolution, achievement of its purpose is justified by any means.
Through science, Communism denied the existence of God. Also, they believed that the development of science prescribed the existence of Communism and that God and religion are just some form of superstition or myth. After Communism declared that religion is the opiate of the masses, did 20th-century science deny God and religion as myths?
No, it didn't. Though Communism is proud of science, even 20th-century science itself started to prove the existence of God and conquered over the 19th-century notion that God is only superstition.
Let us look at one example. Based on 19th-century science, dialectical materialism, which declares that material was original in the cosmos, states that the cosmos is absolute and cannot further divide; but in the 20th century new physics is overturning this view of the cosmos.
This is because it was proven as an undeniable truth that the material produced by energy, which is invisible, is transforming and has reciprocity.
This new physics, which is leading the 20th century, is affirming that the formation of the universe was not established without some form of will present in the cosmos and, through scientific principles, it is also making clear that the existence of the first cause in the universe was not itself an accidental product originating from the cosmos.
Science is asserting that man and the cosmos where created by a "causal being," which in religion we call God. This Being has intellect, emotion and will, and the creation of man is an expression of His personality. His purpose of creation is to receive joy from man and to give love to man who resembles Him. Therefore, to say that "God is not existing" is similar to stating that children have no parents.
The view of value which recognizes the Creator and the relation ship man has with Him will harmonize all the different groups in human society. Communism, which tried to erase God from this earth, became exposed as falsehood by the science that Communists so strongly believed in. It has been exposed that the Communist view of value must be eradicated from this world.
5) Communism's Mistaken View of Man
Communism treats man as some higher form of animal and like some physical material similar to a machine. This is their proper conclusion since Communism denies the existence of God. Communism declares that man evolved from the apes and reason and language developed as tools for production. Since production is treated as a god, they then assert that man is only some higher form of animal.
Since this Communist view of man is the basic problem, it leads to terrible consequences for man. When man is just a higher form of animal, man has no reason to assert his rights. When man degenerates to the level of a machine, man has no foundation to aspire for freedom, love and creativity. In this Communist society, man is just a short distance away from violence.
Naturally, man only has human value when he is coincident with the purpose of Communism. Only at that time. At any other time man has no persistent value. This is the reason that in the Communist world man is treated insignificantly like an insect. During the 60 years of the Communist regime in Russia, the French magazine, Rue Figaro (Nov. 18, 1978 edition) exposed the finding that at least 150 million humans who were against Communism were exterminated. This is the result of the Communist view of man. This is very evident.
6) The True View of Man
Man's divinity and human life originated from man being the child of God, his creator. Man's human value comes from having the same divine nature as God's. If anyone harms another, it is similar to harming God. If a man loves another, it is the same as loving God. Each human is created by God as a true individual entity. Being the substantial expression of God, man's life is as eternal as God's. The worst crime of Communism was not just the denial of God but with that the treatment of man as an animal. Communism considers man as a higher form of animal and as a living matter similar to a machine. Thus, the structure of the Communist system denies man his dignity. The confrontation of these two views of value which are contrary to each other does not occur exclusively in the Korean peninsula but presently occurs in every place in the world.
This is now the era of the battle of the views of value of North and South on a global level. Without resolving the confrontation of the views of value, the unification of North and South will fade like an illusion; furthermore, without finding a solution to Korea we cannot offer a solution to the problem of the world. The same formula that will solve the problem of Korea can solve the problem of the world.
7) View of Value Through Godism
Ladies and Gentlemen, the solution to the inaccurate attitude towards the view of value is to advocate Godism. Godism is the ideology of liberation from materialism, from worldly humanism; in explaining the existence of God and the sanctity of human life, the Communist world and Western civilization, which are declining, can be liberated. With this ideology we can liberate and save North Korea. The reason for this movement of Unification of North and South is to begin the establishment of this view of value.
Only unification with freedom is true freedom.
When we see first the confrontation of the views of value which are against each other, we should be deeply impressed that only unification in freedom is true unification.
Our unification must be the base for God, freedom and democracy. Any other kind of unification is not true unification.
The rights and privileges of our North Korean brothers have been plundered for 42 years. Like us, they also desire to enjoy freedom. This is true unification.
We have to team an important lesson from Vietnam. Vietnam was not unified. It became the slave of Russia. It did not achieve true unification. During twelve years of Communism in Vietnam, people who wanted to pursue freedom became "boat people" -- a couple of hundreds of thousands -- and many died in the ocean. Another couple million people were massacred. Communist Vietnam, which was called "unified, deteriorated to become the worst and poorest nation in the world, having a GNP of not even a hundred dollars. No one would label this is as "true unification."
Our North Korean brothers need a true revolution. The revolution that they have waited patiently for is only possible when we stand and lead to bring them world peace and prosperity. For us South Koreans, who have lived a prosperous life, this is our sacred duty towards our North Korean brothers.
For 40 years till now the only policy of unification that the Communist Party in North Korea has had is one of polarization, and they have been ceaselessly waiting for the realization of this opportunity. Their final goal of revolution is that "South Korea should be liberated from the occupation of American Imperialism and be made a unified Fatherland where the South Korean people will have the same ideology as the North Korean people." To make the South Korean people believe in the same ideology, in other words "to arm them with Kim Il Sung's unique thought," means to absolutely obey and be occupied under the doctrine of Kim Il Sung's "Father-Son." It means being a slave to Kim Il Sung.
Using their bitter experiences of defeat in the Korean war, North Korea has been ceaselessly attempting for more than 30 years to invade South Korea with the pretext of liberating the oppressed people of South Korea; therefore, this present time is very precarious.
Even though the tension between North and South Korea is at a high level, South Korea has earned worldwide admiration for its financial and economic development and has improved its international stature.
Indeed, based on the 1985 GNP, the difference between South Korea and North Korea is respectively 5.5 against 1, and South Korea has evidently achieved a record of attaining 20th place as a developed country and 12th place as a world trading partner.
After the 1988 Seoul Olympics it will be as clear as fire that South Korea has attained an undeniably favorable position economically and militarily. Thus, any military maneuvers are due to the realization by Kim Il Sung's party that the opportunity to achieve their goal through polarization by military means will be eliminated forever and they want to prevent this from happening before it's too late.
From now until one or two years later there is a possibility that North Korea in a desperate effort will choose military adventurism; further, any news or information of deterioration and chaos in South Korean politics can only serve as an explosive to hinder the commencement of the Seoul Olympics.
The establishment of the National Federation Movement for the Unification of North and South comes at a very historical and important time.
8) Let's Arm with Ideology
What should the National Federation Movement for the Unification of North and South do at this time?
First of all, we need to arm ourselves with the true view of value towards our nation, so that peaceful settlement and agreement can occur. The weak point of the "free countries" such as America is the existence of emptiness in their ideology. Excessive materialism and the misuse of freedom brings chaos to their view of value and promotes worldly humanism. This is the reason the Communist world will not give up its ambition for world Bolshevization until the very end.
World War III is the war of ideologies. We cannot triumph over Communism solely through military means. For Communism to be defeated, we need to have a better ideology than the Communists. This ideology can only be an ideology based on truth. There is no such ideology other than Godism!
Without changing its ideology, without arming with the Unification Thought of Godism, the free world will find it impossible to triumph over Communism. The National Federation Movement for the Unification of North and South must take the offensive as the movement of pan-nationalism.
Godism serves not only to liberate our North Korean brothers but also gives salvation to the world from Communism. This ideology will serve as an opportunity to create a huge awakening in the Western world from its corruption through disillusion and immorality.
For this reason in 1976, I initiated the historical conference of the Declaration of Godism, in Washington, D.C., the capital of the United States of America.
I did this because I have faith and confidence that through Godism the Communist world can be liberated. The original reason why Communism did not decline rapidly is that up until now we didn't have any clear ideology. We were not armed with a better ideology. Therefore, from now on, let us start to extend Godism to overcome Communism and its movement from South Korea. How can we wish for unification without having an ideological offensive to overwhelm Kim Il Sung's solitary dogma that is full of unjust demands and lies?
9) Godism Is the Movement of Headwing
Unification Thought, Godism, is also the idea of Headwing. Headwing, which is neither right-wing nor left-wing, can realize real human peace which cannot be accomplished by either the right wing or the left wing. The reason for this is that both right wing and left wing cannot escape their original initiation from "selfishism"; their pursuit centering only on their own countries and on their own selves is an eternal battle of self-interests which cannot result in peace and unification. Now a new global "ism" has to appear which can break down "selfishism."
"Unselfishism," which is living for the sake of others more than one's own self, appears only with God's ideal. No other doctrine can have this kind of unselfishness-one that can bring life-because God is the substance of love, the essence of love-one that sacrifices one's self. Love is the essence of Godism; this is the central ideal which is similar to the physical "head" which give orders to move the whole physical body. This is the Headwing ideology. The right hand and the left hand accompany one single body. If the body has no head, then they will fight each other like strangers; but if the head occupies the central position, then the right hand and the left hand obey the orders from the heart, working cooperatively for the whole body.
Therefore, the unification of North and South has to be accomplished through the Headwing ideology. This will in effect cause North Korea not to make unification through polarization and at the same time cause South Korea not to invade North Korea. By "Headism," which is the Headwing ideology of interdependence through mutual prosperity and the universal sharing of values found in God, the unification of North and South can be accomplished.
10) Lets Face the Unification of North and South
Secondly, we need to have a continuous desire for unification. Without that desire, its fulfillment cannot come. This National Federation Movement needs to make a commitment for the unification of North and South Korea. Unification is not just solely our national aspiration but also inevitably our destiny. When our intellect follows up on unification, I believe God is achieving this.
At this point it is not enough to say that we need to defeat North Korea. They have a stronger desire to liberate South Korea. They have the sacrificial attitude to invest wholeheartedly in order to achieve this. Without acquiring a stronger sacrificial desire to absolutely liberate our unfortunate brothers in North Korea, unification would only be a dream. Therefore, I am planning to inspire desire through the establishment, by this National Federation, of "unification prayer centers" and "unification training centers" near the 38th Parallel in order to instill in the hearts of our 40 million countrymen an intense desire for unification with North Korea.
11) Let's Develop Our Capability
Thirdly, we have to cultivate and raise our capability. The idea of unification necessitates the development of our capability in every field for this very purpose. We have to force Kim Il Sung to abandon his ambition of polarization and his plan to invade South Korea, and open the closed society of North Korea. In order for Kim Il Sung to abandon his ideology, we have to overcome his Party in any kind of field and direction.
So, as I have already said, the establishment of the view of value and arming ourselves with that ideology is a very important goal. Then we must extend and improve our country in terms of international position. The most important capability is to establish an advanced democratic society for our nation.
Only true democracy can triumph over dictatorship. Only through the development of an ideal democratic government is it possible to defeat any dictatorial group centered on worshipping individuals. The statement made by Abraham Lincoln, "A government of the people, for the people, and by the people," is true. Democracy should be our national conscience's highest priority, having historical proportions.
12) Encourage International Support for Unification
For the sake of the unification of North and South Korea, an important issue is to develop a worldwide disposition for the urgency of unification. Centered on the United States and the nations around the Korean Peninsula such as Japan and China, we need to be armed with an ideology focused in a positive direction. We hope to make them realize that eventually North Korea cannot continue to exist in isolation, by mobilizing Russia to influence North Korea to open up its closed society. We have to create the situation of international pressure so that they themselves will want to be free from Communism and will think of cooperating for the nation.
Kim Il Sung's organization, which seems formidable but is really an illusion, will soon collapse and fall down because it is rooted in deception.
With the establishment of The Washington Times in America we initiated a worldwide movement of ideally educating the free world, an intention that I had for a long time; we are also organizing around the globe to form many newspapers, to educate the world media, to give direction to university professors worldwide, to guide student movements in every nation, to bring about cooperation among various South American countries and to form understanding among the world religions. Already, I have devoted myself to build the foundation to induce North Korean liberation by trying to influence America, Japan, Europe and South America, and, finally, China.
Korea is in a very delicate position, geographically and politically. America, Japan, Russia, and China, have deep interests in the Korean peninsula; therefore, the great achievement of our unification will be to guide in a profitable direction the influences of these four strong world powers. I accomplished this influence and this ability through the movement of education of ideology on the world level; without doing this, the unification of the Fatherland will never be accomplished.
The "National Federation Movement for the Unification of North and South" cannot start without the foundation of individual Korean effort, and cannot start without other countries in Asia as well as with the United Nations, which has a deep connection with each nation of the world. Thus, our National Federation should develop to an Asian National Federation and then to a World National Federation. This is the desire of all humanity and also the desire of God.
Ladies and Gentlemen. Now we have to accept that the great work nationwide and worldwide begins here. You who are gathered here are offering a helping hand to those saints that are gathered in this place and are receiving this historical responsibility of unification by organizing the National Federation Movement for the Unification of North and South.
Our national spirit has to be liberated to an ideology of "respect heaven and love the people" which is similar to that of our national ancestor King Dan. Today our noble nation elevates the ideology of saving the world from the chaos of the views of value to the salvation of all things; it will mean that "Godism was born in this place."
Since I believe that Korea is a microcosm of the world, the world's problem is inseparably related to the resolution of the Korean problem. Another way of looking at it is to say the method that can solve the world problem was born in Korea. It was! We explained that Godism, which is the method of unifying North and South, became the method to solve secular humanism and save the world from Communism.
Ladies and Gentlemen. We are establishing this view of value for each other. Let us rouse ourselves to action with the weapon of the national ideology. Together, we earnestly wish for the unification of North and South. Let us have faith. Let us burn with the zeal that can penetrate the impregnable.
Let us establish the worldwide foundation by acting through this National Foundation Movement for the Unification of North and South with the determination to achieve God's Will by our own hands and with the confidence to heroically work on the front line, on the place of unification of North and South, as the eternal historical people!
Ladies and Gentlemen. Let us pledge with clenched fists and with determination in our minds in this sacred place where we are gathered to be the battle group for unification! Let us go forward united until our dream, the unification of North and South, is achieved.
May God bless you and your family. This is the message of the National Federation Movement of the Unification of North and South.
2. Support For The Movement Of Unification Of North And South
Ladies and Gentlemen. We are gathered here to achieve our goal. We know very well the situation of a divided Korea.
Because I was jailed in North Korea I know very well the situation in North Korea. We have to liberate them even though we may need to do many sacrifices. All of us must be seriously concerned.
It has been 40 years since I prayed in front of God after crossing the 38th Parallel. I have been living these past 40 years with the dire resolve for unification, and even single-handedly I want to cross the 38th Parallel and liberate this desolate Communist country. (Father couldn't continue to speak because he became too emotional and was crying.) I am certain that it is destined that a fight remains to be fought.
Ladies and Gentlemen. Before you give me respect and honor, please promise me that you will deeply remember in your heart this miserable nation and that you will pledge to go forward for its liberation and unification.
In order to bring success to this big movement we must be united as one whole body. We have to go forward hand in hand and be determined to shed sweat and blood and offer our actions sincerely, young and old, man and woman, intellectual and illiterate. We have to strive for that ideal of unification and the goal of the liberation of North Korea. Pledge and pledge and pledge! If your faith is strong, God can work with you; so please be absolutely desirous about being victorious and be a living encouragement to your friends and colleagues in your working place and in society. I really wish that you can be successful and understand the fact that it is not only we but also our brothers in that fallen country who are hoping deeply.
I cannot accomplish all this by myself; so now we need tremendous funds. Since I know the providential mission needed to accomplish this, combining the entire 60 million Korean people, I am determined to tell you the minimum donation at this time.
I hope that you can connect to this spirit and quickly contribute to the movement. Thank you very much! (May 15, 1987)
3. Establishment And Goal Of The National Federation
1) The Motivation and Background of the National Federation
Who made this National Federation Movement for the Unification of North and South? (Father!) No, I mean by whom was it made? This was not by Rev. Moon, but by Heavenly Father. (Jan. 31, 1988)
Today I am the architect of a worldwide organization that is carrying the worldwide fortune and strongly dominating from the edge of the world in the spirit world to the individual, family, tribe, nation, and world; and, in this position I was banished worldwide. As you know it is not easy-the National Federation Movement for the Unification of North and South. Heavenly Father has to be the leader, at the very front. It is not good if Heavenly Father is not together with us.
Today South Korea as the central nation of the world should be connected with Heaven at the axis of love. This should be 38th Parallel; it should be the pearl gate of the twelve and should be the golden gate where one can enter Heaven. But what is that gate now? "Panmunjon -- this became the gate of the Devil. This should have been the gate that is connected to gold but it became the gate connected to destruction. There is where righteousness and evil confront. Righteousness is pursued and evil has gained power. It is hit by falsehood. God's Will is to get rid of this thing. Rev. Moon is doing this as a representative of the whole world. We have to defend there as well as in America and in Japan.
Because of the division of North and South, we have to accomplish unification by connecting to God's original love, making an offering for the resentment of the world. Therefore, through the liberation of God and humankind, we can step on the problem of this nation and everything will center on the ideology of love. Therefore, the National Foundation Movement for the Unification of North and South, centered on the unification of the Fatherland, desires to join there through the preparation of a glorious ideology of eternal love and of eternal liberation; it will open the gate to the Kingdom of Heaven where we can live together with Heavenly Father for eternity. Do you understand? (Yes!)
I came back to Korea which is still connected to the right side of the realm of the individual, the family, the tribe, and the nation. I came back to Korea to bring the realm of victory. Thus, Cain must surrender to Abel. Is that wrong? Because I brought that kind of fortune, I could establish the National Federation Movement for the Unification of North and South. When the Korean War happened, the Communist people broke through the 38th Parallel; you have to do more than them. How many years did the Communist Party organize? Three years! They prepared the invasion of Korea in a period of three years, from 1948 to 1950; so we have to act within three years.
Until I could at last accomplish the way that America should go, because I was in the position of pioneer, I could not return. Heavenly Father has taught me to become aware that everything is connected here. If not I would have returned to Korea a long time ago. Why do the Korean people come and work here? Is that wrong? After building the path where Heaven could go, where Heaven could reign, truly I could go back to my own country. Heaven could come to our country through the world stage. Not to go through that way-that is a different thinking. So, from now on, by the organization, National Federation Movement for the Unification of North and South, I could connect the way which can connect with the world and the unification of North and South.
People who are wishing for the unification of North and South are also wishing for the appearance of one whom heaven recognizes as the righteous ruler. So that this time, by establishing the National Federation Movement for the Unification of North and South, the South Korean people see that only Rev. Moon is striving for the unification of North and South. This is not an impossible theory. It's definitely fact. Even the government cannot do this. Can Pres. Chung make the unification of North and South? Kim Il Sung said, "Let's unify North and South." Can he unify North and South Korea? Its a dream!
Right after World War II, global division started; Christianity in America couldn't unite with the American nation and the Korean people couldn't unite with Rev. Moon. I had to make indemnity on that level to make two points into one. But Rev. Moon made the Federation centered on God and centered on the Unification Church as a perfect foundation for people to place power in all kinds of directions. Rev. Moon made the foundation!
We cannot be like those passing by in the street drinking alcohol and muttering, "Oh, what a good feeling!" Already we are being surrounded from around the world. We have to bring back our seat over the level of the net that surrounds us which is connected to America, Japan, and China. In order to establish the environment to begin the National Federation I established in Oct. 11, 1986 the Federation of the Unification of Professors and Students. The head of a university expressed astonishment as to why Rev. Moon was doing that kind of work; it's like cooking beans also like lighting a candle. But at that moment the providence was very urgent.
Being so busy I could not look back and time passed so quickly.
Especially 1987, during its establishment on April 13 and the declaration on June 29 of the National Federation Movement for the Unification of North and South, was a very complicated time nationally and providentially. Since we started the unification movement in such a dangerous time, this organization will be considered strange and remarkable. Some rich people who had a lot of money, some political people, and also people who want to succeed in life, just left. They didn't do anything. The situation was similar to dying; but we were the only ones shouting with a big voice. So, the Unification . . .
Last year, on campus, a leftist movement tried to attack one member. If this Unification Church member fights with them he will automatically win. This Unification Church member's name, where did it come from? This was the name or slogan given by the leftist movement to this member as he fought at the central campus of the university. During that situation on the school campuses in the entire country of Korea, who else beside us was giving speeches centered on university professors and famous people in society? This was the big challenge. This was so dangerous. On May 15, with this kind of foundation, we established the National Federation. Was it made by a nation? Who made it? Absolutely I made it. (January 2, 1988)
Section 1. National Federation For The Unification Of North And South - Part 2
4. Foundation Day
That time comes only once. We should yearn and prepare aggressively for that time because time waits for no one. It just passes by.
If this doesn't transpire, heavenly fortune will be very different. So there is no time for night or day. There is no night and day. In order to accomplish this we cannot rest. Getting tired is not a problem. Thus, this time we organized the National Federation Movement for the Unification of North and South.
Why does Reverend Moon absolutely have to organize the conference before May 15? It is the season similar to spring, before summer. That is when all things are restored to life. Looking at the whole situation . . . . Which year did the May 16th event occur? (1961) The new sovereignty was born centered on the fortune like May 16. So, we had to do it before then. Not after. At this time, the whole Korean situation should be like that. Since it did not happen according to God's providence, confusion has transpired. The opposition party is confused; the government party is confused; people themselves cannot find direction where they should be going; the religious people cannot act, and no one can guide anyone. We are all tightly connected. The spirit world and the physical world were divided, as well as East and West, North and South. To overcome, we need to do it like this. All fortunes go together intensively. Regarding the organization of the National Foundation Movement for the Unification of North and South, "so-and-so" said that it cannot be done.
Also, so-and-so said, "I'm dying, too busy." (When is a good time to do it?) It's good to do it during the summer vacation in July. Did I say June? (You said June.) It's not June! (laughter) There isn't time. Reverend Moon has to do it! Everything, this time! . . . . How do they fit together -- screw, bolts, nuts, turning together? It's similar to that. Its very interesting, very strange, mysterious, to find out this point. Who is there? Heavenly Father is there! What is the name of Heavenly Father? Can you understand?
Actually it is easy. I know that it's very difficult to make a free association in America under the terrible storm of criticism. I have to direct them to make everything. However, they don't understand. It's more important than the National Federation Movement for the Unification of North and South. We have to do this by May 15. Then people who come to see it will comment, "Hey, you did it!" Did you do it just because you were compelled? Anyway, you did well. If it was possible, how good it could be around June; but that is wrong. It's no good after May 15. Some religious people can say, "Let's do Chon-do-gyo" on the Kyon Ryung mountain on May 16 and it will happen. With that kind of confidence I wanted to build the pan-national organization for the unification of North and South; that is why I pressed to do so by May 15. After the 16th, people will ask, "Oh, what is Rev. Moon doing? He is just imitating and copying!" We might hear this kind of comment. If it becomes like that, our image will become bad. So, I pressured people to do it quickly. Like feces, evil things smell. Three or four days later, no one wants to touch it.
This time Rev. Moon came back to Korea to organize the National Federation Movement for the Unification of North and South. At this time the conference stopped and the government domination was taken away. So, the Korean people now follow Rev. Moon. Do you understand? (Yes!)
This is the way for South Korea to be in unison with Rev. Moon. If everybody -- all families, Kim Il Sung, North Korea -- does this, then we will have a situation of saturation or abundance.
This saturation will overflow if it cannot fit anymore. Centered on Rev. Moon, connecting with this situation of saturation, it can elevate towards the worldwide course. From then on it will not come down. Here is the ideal world, one equal world. It is returning to a true world.
5. The Goal Of The National Foundation
Which national federation unification movement centered on God's original idea is unifying North and South? Therefore, to build that nation of Heaven we need to build a new national ideology. (May 1, 1987)
Rev. Moon returned to Korea to make the National Federation Movement for the Unification of North and South in order to make a unified Korea. (November 13, 1987)
We established the NFMUNS to find a shortcut to unification. What must we do? Not only the unification of South and North. Not only the liberation of South and North. We have to liberate Heavenly Father by liberating humankind. What is the center? We have to know that the center is True Love.
The National Federation Movement for the Unification of North and South is the organization for the unification of North and South. People first need to make the federation, then do the unification movement; so we have to be united to mobilize 60 million people. If the standard-bearer can unite 6 million and then 60 million towards the new Eden, then the world will directly become the perfect foundation for the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth.
Have confidence and faith. Believe the words of Rev. Moon that from now on we have to defeat North Korea. Who is taking responsibility? Heavenly Father cannot take responsibility. Reverend Moon also cannot take responsibility. Each person should take responsibility; each person has to be liberated from Satan. In order to be liberated, what should each person do? Your family needs to be liberated. So what is the goal which puts all power on this National Federation Movement for the Unification of North and South? There is only one goal. The goal of the Unification Church, the goal of the Victory Over Communism League, the goal of the Federation of Unification of Students and Professors, and the goal of the National Federation is the same. It's not two, just one. What is it? It is the family! Why the family? Because of the Fall, the family was lost. So we have to recover the family.
What is the goal of the National Foundation? When we do the movement for the unification of South and North, what do we have to defeat? Where is the focal point? Where is the place where we should thrust the general attack? The standard of defeating is not in Seoul city; it is in all the district and the neighborhood. All leaders of the district and the neighborhood and "the village." Our own organization must bring all our power to that movement. Where is the place of our front line? Of course, we all have to go to the district and the neighborhood and Li and the neighborhood; but it is not good without initially putting a foundation in the town and "The district." Do you understand? Also, without maintaining a base of 3,300 people in the whole nation, it is impossible to bring victory centered on the town and "The district."
Therefore, does "to defeat" mean that we can bring victory over Communism armed only with ideology? It is no good to be armed only with ideology! Already the Communists are trying to realize their ideal by making a nation centered on Communist ideology. During these 40 years they are exerting themselves to actualize that ideal; but until now that has not been accomplished . . . . They have the Communist ideology and the benefit of action, but since the work is centered on the leading organization, the Communist Party, people forget about it. People quit, leave or defect. By recognizing these events, we know that our time has come. Therefore we can completely connect with the North Korean people by uniting with the foundation movement in South Korea.
So, the "defeating movement" in North Korea is the movement to defeat the district and Li leaders in North Korea. Here in this national organization you indeed train and finish. . . .
The goal of the National Foundation Movement from now on is the movement of victory in the district and the neighborhood. If only we unite with this, the unification of North and South will happen. Even if only armed with the ideology to unite the district and the neighborhood leaders, then we can unify North and South. It is not difficult to unite the district and "The neighborhood's" leaders.
We have the organizations: the Victory Over Communism League, the Federation of Unification of Professors and Students, and the National Federation Movement for the Unification of North and South, and all these organizations share the same goal which is the occupation of the district and the neighborhood.
6. Management Of The Federation
From now on the issue is world mobilization. In order to accomplish that, first of all we must have an absolute ideology; second, an intensive organization; and, third, an understanding of the unification process since we are confronting Communism whose activity and power of organization are greater than ours. For that development to occur, we need to organize.
Presently Kim Il Sung actually has a strong hold on 20 million people; therefore, we have to make an organization that is stronger than that. If we do that, then the organization of Kim Il Sung will naturally fall down. This is the providential viewpoint. It will collapse naturally. Did the North Devil organize everything through compulsion? North Korea is composed of volunteers. We are composed of volunteers.
When we think on that, we need a unified theory that can assimilate everything, that can transcend those of the Communist organization and the democratic organization. We can conclude that we need to organize unification based on an idea like this.
To form an organization for world unification, we should use Korea as a model. An organization centered on Korea, a federation for World Unification, East and West, North and South. A federation for the unification of the world, east and west, north and south. Definitely, Korea becomes the model of the world. If the world is included, then all things become a unified world organization. The whole nation has to be armed with that ideology.
In order to do that, what should we do? We have to come up with educators who can teach the whole nation. We have to reach highly educated people. We should connect quickly with South Korean educational organizations.
We need to work with everyone in the universities, in junior High Schools, in High Schools and in the National Schools. We should quickly link with leaders of educational organizations.
We have to intensify educational activity, meaning that we have to connect the student activities. We have to educate and extend this activity through the students, connecting above and below and left and right. After that we need to educate parents through the students. Also we have to educate the family.
Through the student organizations, everything -- family and society -- can be connected. We have to tie everything vertically on the horizontal foundation. Who must do it? Teachers have to it. We need to inform the schools that the teachers and the professors have to do it.
Then the organization of public officials. After connecting the private organizations centered on the college campuses we have to mobilize the organization of public officials. We have to connect state organizations like the government through the organization of public officials. It means to unify different organizations of public officials.
Then in order to mobilize this kind of people, the leaders of society, we include in the federation meetings alumni and graduate students from the universities. We have to connect with the region as one core center. Centered on the region we have to establish the unification movement completely. Then we have to unify parents, students, teachers and public officials.
We must prepare an organization of two parts because your country and the reality in Korea is different. It is not necessary in your country, but Korea needs to make unity of the North and South. We have to pre, pare two parts of organization. We have to prepare this kind of organization in South Korea as well as in North Korea. In South Korea it is necessary to have this kind of organization because after the unification of North and South Korea these organizations will make preparations for the elections.
Even though South Korea is too small and too narrow, it can become like a tiger's head if it uses Rev. Moon's head, hands and legs. How do we mobilize with just 1,000 people? If it is just me, I cannot do anything because I am just 1/1000th. So how do we do it? By thinking that one thing in North Korea is the problem. So, is there anyone who will go to North Korea? All those people raising their hand say "yes"!
From now on for three years I want to go to North Korea and organize in all kind's of organizations, in each the district, the town and li and in women's and men's clubs. We will start now. Are you going to do it? (I will do it!) (Jan. 21, 1986)
If your power is lacking, we will mobilize the leaders of li; by receiving help through the cooperation of the central organization we will educate teachers and principals, and then we will educate the students. After quickly finishing this, we will use their vacation time to bring their parents. Then it's finished! At the same time, through our activities, we will organize the leaders of the district, the neighborhood and the town, the neighborhood organizations. After that, we will connect everything centered on well-known people in society and in the alumni associations. Aside from that, we will take charge to educate and prepare the army and the private defense groups; indeed, we will educate all the people to become members and then the work of the National Federation Movement for the Unification of North and South Korea will be finished.
When we are finished with all organizations, if a stranger appears in a village we can ring the bell in every house to notify one another. We should check everything. If the person says that he came to visit his parents and his hometown, we should call his parents to see if they know this person or not and would they let him inside their house; then even the best spy will be defeated, and contact with his leaders will be destroyed.
We have to check every day; we have to expose secret telegrams or wireless communications that are coming and going between North Korea and South Korea. We do not exactly have any clear statistic on how many active North Korean spies there are behind the scenes, but it would be a big number. If we can stand the fire of truth with Heavenly Father's protection, we will be able to round them up. We can know if a person is for unification or not. Do you understand now what we should do for the establishment of the organization for unification? (Yes!) Now is the moment when Rev. Moon is devising plans for that realization. Due to my experience in the jail of Hungnam Prison, I have scrutinized everything. We have to realize that if we cannot take out the root of the Communist Party and Kim Il Sung, then Korea will indeed be punished.
So, the thing that needs most attention is to find out where they are penetrating. Their number one goal is the district and the neighborhood, so the emphasis is how to defeat this. (Jan. 2. 1988)
Participation in the National Federation Movement for the Unification of North and South has to be extended even to the Headquarters of the Defense Army. We have to educate all qualified men. We have to put these people in the most important positions in their districts. They are the brave patriots who will sacrifice their lives. For the sake of the country and the nation, they fought and were injured. It is they who should teach the juniors the desire to dissolve the resentment towards the North Devil. Centered on Unification Thought, district leaders will join the National Federation. They will become important leaders armed with an ideology they believe in. If it becomes like this, the unification of the fatherland will be completed.
Then there is the "prepared army of the post." We educate the "prepared army" and let them attend our organization. If you meet some "funny person" there, right away confront him with our ideology. Fight with theology, then guide him along the right way. After the education of the "prepared army" the next thing to do is to educate the "private army," and there is no other place that can do this than the National Federation. Therefore we have to practice by having them receive everything. We have to get back the balance in every kind of field so that people will come to devote themselves to the Unification Movement. (Jan. 2, 1988)
Therefore, what do we do with the local organizations? There is our church organization. But here, in this place, there is no Federation of Unification of Students and Professors. Therefore we have to allot one professor of the Federation of Unification of Professors and Students. He can use one office with two other persons, and each person's mission is to help each other.
Therefore centered on the Unification Church, one person can do VOC and be vice-president of a National Federation, and the powerful person in the local area can be another vice president.
Therefore, three persons have to make unity. It is not good if we cannot make unity with three persons. To do this they have to focus together. The mouth also has to function with three points. The ear also. Everything must be like this. Thus, it must be achieved within the realm of the four-position foundation centered on the spirit. This is the Divine Principle viewpoint.
From now on, the organization of this system is in three stages. Three stages. If the President has to control from the district government to the Ministry of Finance, the President has to give the direction until the Minister of Finance. Then it's three stages. Thus the Minister of State is from the Minister of Finance, Chief of the Department, Chief of the Section. The Minister of State goes down one step. We have to connect to this kind of organization, do you understand?
Our organization also has the form of three stages; that is the town, the village, the neighborhood, centered on the town and the district, the district and the neighborhood centered on the district. (Feb. 24, 1988)
I recently made the National Federation, but before that I organized the Unification Church and the IFVOC. When we just look at it horizontally, the problem is to determine which one is the first among these three organizations. If it were up to you, the first would be the Unification Church, then the IFVOC, and lastly the National Federation; but how about with Rev. Moon? I say that unity centered on the National Federation is first, and everything else is after that. This is the stage of formation, growth, and perfection. In relation to this, we realize that the Unification Church is in the position of the head. Then the IFVOC is the fighting spirit. The National Federation is the mobile leg.
During the Age of Restoration we do not work from the head. We have to work from below. Therefore, going down from the head, the IFVOC and the Unification Church have to turn, centered on the National Federation. Indeed, doing like this will be its end because the center is turning.
If it comes to turn centered on the Unification Church, the place of rotation of the IFVOC and the place of rotation of the National Foundation will also end.
So in the era of the final restoration, when turning we need to turn centered on people. We have to turn with the same heart of all 40 million Korean people. With this kind of meaning, I said to unite centered on the National Movement.
When we unite, where we go to oneness is to be centered on the National Federation; but to make oneness, you have to go to the district and the neighborhood. If it cannot unite all the people from the bottom up, it is no good. If three branches don't become one, then it's no good. The record has to show three people united.
I made the National Federation by this kind of means. Then to put this order worldwide, I said to get the members of the district and the neighborhood under control quickly, by the movement of defeating the district and the neighborhood. (Jan. 2, 1988)
7. Our Attitude Towards The Activity Of The Federation
Now we organize the National Foundation Movement for the Unification of North and South; the era has come which is able to show the march of the group for unification which is struggling day and night, fighting and moving with the heart of love that is able to hold all the people. (February 23, 1988)
Since we are doing God's Will, Heaven will create all the circumstances and conditions. Then the core will be erected, constructed together. This is just the same as with Cain and Abel. So, we have to invest in its development now. Isn't that so? What must we do as the National Federation Movement for the Unification of North and South? When the circumstances are ready, we have to invest everything ourselves. How much investment? Investing should be the same as being able to unify. That would be to sacrifice ourselves. If we do not do this, then we cannot do anything.
The course of restoration is the course of the history of re-creation; but as long as we remain in the restoration process, we have to invest. The limitation of having to invest must continue until perfection.
When everyone came to Korea, did you think that you can easily achieve the goal of the National Federation Movement for the Unification of North and South? Here is the front line. Here is the front line of the world. Here is the focal point of the world. So, if everyone makes determination, I see that many kinds of revelations will happen here centered on God's Will. Isn't it too good to be true that if we unite completely we can even move spirit world to soon call Kim Il Sung?
Even though there is no one, it has to be done. Even if you do not have money, sell your house; just do it! Then Heaven can protect our future; He can take all the responsibility.
There is a point there. To do it with money or do it because of that organization. If this organization is not organized by Heaven, then it was organized by Satan. If it isn't used for the heavenly purpose, then money is poison. Poison. It would perish, do you understand? Sincerity is necessary. Sincerity. From now on work and visit; if need be, cry more than you would cry inside the church. It is that easy. For the National Federation Movement for the Unification of North and South, sincerely cry and work more that you would in the church.
When in a village, it is elegant to be working and visiting by car. But if your mission dictates that you have to walk many, many miles, then you have to do it. You should be grateful for today's conveniences which can make your work faster; feel like "it's too good for me!" If you have the heart to do ten times more, a hundred times more that, you even begin spitting out blood just doing it, and Heaven will cooperate.
As the representative of the world, of the South Korean people and the country of South Korea, we have to make that offering. Are you standing the same way as I am with the attitude that I can do anything for others? You cannot?
As the representative, the Unification Church is doing this. By Rev. Moon's order, the Abel standard is that the Unification Church has to completely unite with Heavenly Father's love and the True Parents; then you and Rev. Moon become one. You and all things become united, which is the foundation; so you have to build completely. Together with what? Together with the nation. We have to hold tightly. We have to hold the nation and its people. Do you understand?
The Unification Church members have to hold all things, hold the land of South Korea and its people. Unification Church members are in the children's position of Cain and Abel. The way that Cain should go was established when Abel became a sacrifice. We should hold the South Korean people through this kind of principle. Reverend Moon holds the nation in the same way.
You should hold the land of South Korea like this, centered on God, centered on love. We have to achieve the realm of liberation on the parallel line by connecting and uniting with God's love, by children and parents uniting centered on God's love, by all things and man uniting centered on God's love. Through God's love all things are held; children's hands are held by parents, parent's hands are held by God.
You must know that God is alive. God should be alive! (Amen!)
I feel good so I donated 5,000 million. I am feeling very well, that is why I do it, or, I was feeling bad and that is why I do it. So, from now on, those people who feel bad and donate, get punishment. Do it with a happy heart. After the restoration of Canaan, is it good for the hero who is in front to start the building of a nation unwillingly? You need to have the kind of heart that wants to learn continuously and goes endlessly with joy, day and night.
Even though people follow me and persecute me, I live with great joy. I didn't cry when I was handcuffed, going to jail. I went with a smile, not with tears. I didn't react like a small minded person. When I went to Danbury, Bo Hi Pak and everybody cried, but I said "So, goodbye, I will go," and then I left. "You don't know there is life after Danbury? Because you are blind you cannot see, but I see ahead. Now I go full of hope!" Otherwise, it is no good. After saying that, I entered. I fulfilled thirteen months. Number thirteen is the worst number in America. I came out from the jail to restore this number.
This time, did you read the message on the organization of the National Federation Movement for the Unification of North and South? (Yes!) At the closing, I gave a speech on what to do in order to unify the 38th Parallel; I had a lump in my throat for about five minutes and I delivered the speech more painfully than any in my whole life . . . . For this one goal we have defeat ten thousand times. To do ten thousand times. Everyone, each time I had to hit the bull's eye. I did like this. Otherwise we couldn't restore. So, my wish is that you can inherit and build on all that Rev. Moon has achieved.
Just as Rev. Moon's family became one, you and your spouse must become one completely, and from now on, you have to make unity with the people. South and North are in the position of children. Do you understand? You have to take responsibility for the worldwide indemnity course just as Rev. Moon did, so that we can graft here. It means that you have to accomplish everything, the completion of the providence.
8. No One Is Against The Federation
The Government Party, the Opposition Party, all the government parties -- you shouldn't be interested in them. The urgent problem now is to unite South and North; is it to fight with both parties? So, everyone, if anyone wants to do it then do it; but those who don't want to, then don't. Seeing all these things happening in this era, we know that the time of fortune is coming to Korea. Even though America is great, she has to cooperate and help Korea.
Therefore, the point of conclusion is the National Federation Movement for the Unification of North and South. So, President Hwang, should he attend here or shouldn't he? The bureaucrats of the government party and the opposition party, should they also attend or not? How about those against this? Should we say, "If you are against us you are Communist"; should we slap them and throw them out? If the time comes that the government is against it, I will drive into them more than the Communist demonstrator. If they are against this, they must be cleaned up. We should clean up both the government and the opposition party. You have to do it with this kind of determination. Do you understand? (Yes!) We have to have that kind of faith. We have this kind of ideology, the kind of landing operation that can liberate the spirit world, the physical world and God's resentment. This is the present subject matter; already we received that order. We have to learn. There is no objection. Logically, is there any objection? Is there any objection? (No!) When we consider the providential viewpoint together with the historical climate, there is no other conclusion.
Now, the goal of our victory is the family. This is the movement of defeating the district and the neighborhood leaders. Is that the family? There is the leader of the district and the neighborhood at the center of the town. The three stages center on all towns. So it is necessary that the base of the town centered on "the town-the village" and town is connected. In the big city, centered on the district, the district and the neighborhood are connected. Do you understand? Therefore, three stages.
So women, go there to be able to connect with the leader of the district and "Tang"; you have to mobilize women there. Is there anyone who is against the National Federation Movement for the Unification of North and South? If they are against it, then they are Communists and their action is to give benefit to the enemy. So, the position of our nation is completely united with the standard of the Divine Principle. It is the same, isn't it?
Even with the same positions, for a long time they stood above us and hit us. But now we have to stand above strongly. All the conditions that they established are going down. At the family level, in all kinds of situations, husband's as well as wife's, son's as well as daughter's.
Everything that became connected with Eve in the Garden of Eden, all fallen levels of the family, has to establish the opposite condition and follow the heavenly nation which is connected like the perfected Eve centering on the original perfect Adam. In that realm, if Satan invades, the Communist Party automatically perishes. Do you understand? The Communist Party will perish naturally.
Where are those who offered as much as I did for South Korea, who invested as much for this Christian nation?
Some people did centered on themselves, but Rev. Moon-did he take any benefit from this nation? I was treated indifferently; until now who has helped me win against the persecution of the Unification Church? Who has given me even one bowl of noodles? As I am building this foundation, trying to liberate people's resentment in the nation, trying to liberate North Korea, trying to unify North and South, I Will receive those who are against me. I will grasp their chest and say, "Hey, you! How come?" If you say to me, "Don't do it!," I will hit your face. Moreover, people who want to crush what I am doing, I will hit them from the front; I am not the one who is generously doing this.
During 40 years of suffering as the "pioneer" going the righteous way centered on God's Will, do you understand how tragic and painful a heart I have, what kind of aggrievement I was holding? While you ate your meals and slept, I was pushed into jail. Do you understand what Rev. Moon is saying? You give me this kind of suffering if you feel that intensive melting of the heart, that kind of pain, and you are still against me. You attack when you talk so. When the heat rose and the eye became too opened and the mouth could not speak, what can you do to defeat becoming like that? Even if you are haughty, will you lose elegantly? What can you do? So, now, go out and behave like this.
Is everybody like this? When you are visiting the leader of the district and the neighborhood, walking locally during the nighttime, is there anyone who is trying to stab you with a sharp-edged tool? Is there any or not? No! Everything is peaceful. I prepared everything so that no one can touch us, even if some people swing a long pole.
No one can go against the movement of unification of North and South. The only way we can receive persecution from anyone against us is if they are Communists. This would be more clear as the activity of the IFVOC is expanding. The only choice for the people who are in the nation's government office is to support our war of unification of South and North, because their main policy is against Communism. Even though they do not like to, they have to answer and do something anyway to justify receiving government officers' and leaders' cooperation.
If they are against the unification of North and South, it will sting them when you ask them kindly what their reason is. They have to raise their hand in front for a clear and justifiable passage.
I have been suffering all my life in order to make the foundation to be able to start the movement of unification of North and South. From now on, I really wish that you can work bravely in the circumstances that have already been created so that we can implement it much more easily. If there are people who are against the movement for the unification of North and South, demonstrate in front of them so that they will turn the opposite way. (Nov. 21, 1986)
9. National Education Is Necessary
For Korea to receive salvation is dependent on the accomplishment of the National Movement. (Nov. 21, 1986)
In order to liberate North Korea, we cannot go with empty hand; we should prepare all the resources that can liberate all kinds of things. We have to solve that within this kind of preparation. All along, I did not work because I had the money. I worked with absolute belief. I achieved this because I had unconditional faith when I planned to do it like this 40 years ago.
I accomplished today's success since I made the effort. It is the same for you. From now on, in order to attain the victory completely in Korea, education is necessary more than anything else. Take no notice of day or night, just as I taught. If there is time, even skip lunch and dinner and tell them, hold them and shed tears; indeed they have to be moved. Look at the course which I went until now. Even now, if one person visits me, I hold onto him and spend time to tell him God's word; I do not go to any other place. You will understand how I have lived my whole life, if you do like this. If you work with faith as I have, I am very sure that God's Will, will be done in Korea.
After educating there is no principle to be presumed. Education is indirect preparation. Indirect preparation is for doing that direct preparation. If you do indirect preparation, then I will turn to direct preparation. So, you do the indirect preparation. To evacuate three-tenths of one million in one month couldn't be difficult through our organization. (Nov. 21, 1986)
Do you know that because of when and what the Unification Church is, the government parties are fighting and restraining each other? Should we be grateful? (laughter) Even now, is that situation dead or are they still fighting? Who and what are they saying in this situation? Everyone is discouraged, saying "Oh, no! Our country is falling apart. There is no hope!" Then at the same time Rev. Moon appears and says, "Let us unify North and South; I have confidence!" Then raising up the people, they say, "yes."
Now the National Federation itself is not a problem. The problem is how to educate the district and the neighborhood and have it sink in. Through this way, education is the same. Education is Unification Thought; through education of VOC, through the Divine Principle, we educate. Everything comes into the district and the neighborhood .Education of Unification Thought is the responsibility of the National Federation centered on the professors; education of VOC is the responsibility of the IFVOC; and education of Divine Principle is the responsibility of the Unification Church. Even though we cannot give any other, whatever the subject is, restoration will hasten if we add the Divine Principle.
It is good to issue membership identification to that special team of about 3,000 people, those who have received the education on the unification of North and South. (Nov. 21, 1986)
