SMM Quotes – 241

“When you are sick and in pain, it means that somewhere in your body the normal harmony or balance is broken. Something invaded and upset it, causing a reaction to eliminate the disruptive element. That is why you feel pain. The universal repelling force operates in your body to drive away the foreign invasion and sickness, and the struggle between the two produces the sensation of pain. When somebody hits you, you feel pain from that invasion. That pain motivates you to do something to protect yourself.” – Reverend Sun Myung Moon

Spring

It is springtime and everyone loves spring. Young people, especially teenagers, long for some season like springtime. The love within them desires this season. Springtime brings a natural, instinctive longing for something untouchable. Unlike youth, however, older folks approach spring with a sense of responsibility. The elderly people who have raised children now have an empty nest and they have a different feeling in spring. Their children have married, left home and now have made homes of their own. This is the season for citizens to reminisce about their past accomplishments and about their families and children and recollect good memories. For them, spring is the time of recollection and re-evaluation of the past times of their lives.

 

This doesn’t necessarily apply only to human beings but to the animal kingdom as well. For instance, during this past winter in New York we had unprecedented heavy snow. Deer and other big animals and the birds sought shelter during winter, but now that spring has come they have a new hope and resurrected feeling. They enjoy this precious time of spring. Witness the flight of the birds; during the winter season they were gone, but now they are back, singing and looking for food. They have aspirations too.

 

Spring will be proud to say, “I have the capability of revitalizing all creation.” Spring will declare that we are given new life and refreshing elements in its season. During winter we can’t see leaves on the trees, but now new buds are emerging with new life. Everyone loves to see new buds. Plants, animals and man all have the same feeling. The migrating birds will find their way back north and enjoy the regenerating forces of spring. What kind of migrating birds do you think of? Robins, ducks, Canadian geese, swallows, swans. They never miss migration.

 

You urban people don’t understand birds. If you live in the country they sometimes make nests under your roof or on your porch. When the swallow is singing, it sounds to Westerners like an Oriental language, but to Orientals it sounds like they are speaking English! The swallow looks like he is wearing a tuxedo, and seeing the male and female singing together is very impressive. No single bird sings; they sing together. If a bird is alone then he sinus to invite or woo the opposite sex. Wherever birds sing together it seems like love is there, right? The same thing applies to mankind. An individual longs for someone else with whom to have a subject-object relationship of give and take.

  
Spring

Did you know that you are great?

You are destined for greatness!

Let us welcome this spring together!

All the wonders are waiting for you this time of the year, all the time!

Still don’t know how to be constantly happy, maintain lasting joy, not to see the changes as signs of loss and not to feel being beaten by every single challenges in your life?

Good news is here for you: from now on, each and every day you can be happier and more content than before!

How?

Trust yourself! Your inner voice is a God-given gift, nurture it consciously!

Be conscious and self-aware! You might feel down and being challenged, but that’s OK, feelings are normal. Just don’t let them to take over your life and cloud your sight!

Have compassion, towards your environment, closer and farther, known and unfamiliar people, and even to yourself! None of us is a robot, our soul is more important than any external achievement.

Live for the sake of others, especially when you don’t get any feedbacks, or just negativity! Do you think God has ever had any better? Still, He hasn’t given up on you…

Love your life, instead of focusing the flaws, with a selective attitude, pick the absolute values and keep them in mind, so, you will always have a safe haven throughout your day! It is always good to start with the harmony in the Nature…

And please, never forget, you are not alone! Despite all the circumstances and internal feelings and bleeding, personal desires and commitments, works and excuses, don’t let yourself being isolated!

The lack of unity is the death of the human soul.

Be a living person rather than a living dead – connect, reach out with prayers, meditations or at least on-line.

So, what do you think?

The Entire Universe Exists for the Sake of Love and Because of Love

The entire universe exists for the sake of love and because of love. When we look at the mineral world, the plant kingdom, the animal kingdom and mankind, all are divided into two, positive and negatIve. The animal kingdom is divided into two, male and female. The mineral kingdom is divided into positive and negative, i.e. electricity. Why do they exist in dual characteristics? Because they have to make a circular motion. Once there is a circular motion, what comes next? Action! Action initiates energy and produces energy. In order to have this kind of circular motion, one single man or woman can’t do that. There has to be a subject and object relationship, a reciprocal relationship. Without a subject and object relationship, there will be no circular movement in the entire universe from mineral kingdom to man.

Happiness doesn’t dwell in just one place but shines out to all people

Happiness doesn’t dwell in just one place but shines out to all people. Glory implies prosperity and happiness for everyone, like a light shining out on a new morning where all nature is in harmony and rejoicing together. When the birds on the trees and the animals have been shivering all night, how do they feel when they finally see the dawn breaking? Even though there was heavy snow, as soon as they see the morning light their joy is abundant. All of nature awakes from the darkness and rejoices over that shining light, celebrating the greatness of the morning.

God cannot pretend

God cannot pretend love

God cannot pretend His heart

God cannot pretend care

God cannot pretend His share

God cannot pretend compassion

God cannot pretend His affection

God cannot pretend dreams

God cannot pretend His Will

God cannot pretend grief

God cannot pretend His tears

God cannot pretend words

God cannot pretend

Since you matter to Him

You’ve always been

His favorite one

And if you feel it hard to believe

Just look at the trees

How magnificent they are

Yet it’s only you who can run

And walk in the meadows

God cannot pretend

To be in love with you

Who told you, little bird

Who told you, little bird
to come and see me at lunch
Who told you, little bird
I’ll be here no matter what
Who told you, little bird
to stand onto that branch
Who told you, little bird
this place is holy and blessed
Who told you, little bird
to sing a song from God
Who told you, little bird
you’ll dry my tears and cheer me up
Who told you, little bird
to comfort my aching heart
Who told you, little bird
I’ll be crying for love

Love nature and love people

You should know how to love nature and love people. You should know that those who cannot love people or love nature cannot love God. Because all things of creation are symbols for God and because people are substantial beings, those who know how to love all things of creation and people will come to love God.

You should always love nature. You should love nature and love people. You should love people of all five colours in the human race. Would God say, “Oh, I like only white people”? Then everyone would have to wear only white clothes. All white people would have to wear only white clothes, and throw away all their coloured clothes. Why would you wear black clothes or coloured clothes? That would be a contradiction.

Even all the elements and the smallest creatures go toward the way of love. They are moving toward being the cells of humankind that can directly contact the love that is one with God. For this reason, we should sacrifice ourselves for the sake of love. We should invest ourselves.

Since there is a tradition of pouring out one’s life and possessions in their entirety, lower entities seek to give their whole being for the sake of higher entities. This is not Darwin’s Theory of Evolution but a theory of absorption based on love. The question is how the value of one of the smallest creatures increases as it becomes material to be used in creating the next higher level of value.

We should feel that all creatures of God are objects of our love. We should be people who can love, and be loved by, even the smallest forms of life, not to mention human beings, as well as everything visible and invisible in heaven. When a bird calls, “Chirp, chirp, chirp” in the morning, instead of saying, “You pesky sparrow, I am trying to sleep late. Why are you chirping?!” say, “Oh, thank you. You came to wake me up. Ha ha, you are telling me that an important guest is coming to see me.” The outlook is different. This is a great thing.

Centered on such people, a myriad of angels in heaven form a subject realm of harmony where they can have give and take with people, as butterflies and bees do with flowers. When that happens, a flowery garden of harmony will surely appear in which God rejoices, people rejoice, angels rejoice and all things are immersed in love. A spring party will then begin.

God created the angelic world at the same time that He created the human world. What kind of world is the angelic world? Only when human beings appear with beauty and fragrance – like blossoms that exist for the sake of bearing one fruit – will the nest of love finally be prepared. Hence, all life starts from there, and all beings that have life can harmonize starting from there. Human beings make this harmony possible.

Little Nightingale

Little Nightingale
Little Nightingale
Where have you gone
Where have you been

The night is a vigil
If I can’t see you
The day is gloomy
If I can’t hear you

Little Nightingale
Little Nightingale
Where have you gone
Where have you been

Here is my hand
Empty, but full
Life-worn wrinkles
Among them seeds

Little Nightingale
Little Nightingale
Where have you gone
Where have you been

I saw you in the future
A vivid daydream
I couldn’t bear
You weren’t there any-more

Little Nightingale
Little Nightingale
Where have you gone
Where have you been

I’m gasping out
It’s you, you are here
I am relieved
Please, don’t go

Little Nightingale
