The hope for the world is rooted in the family and tribe

“Our family has to be located in the root holy ground. As it is situated at the world’s central position as well as the root holy ground, we can shout, “The owner of the root holy ground is my family! The owner of the original holy ground and the holy ground of victory is also my family!”

This is possible owing to God and our succeeding to the vertical and horizontal victorious foundation restored through True Parents’ indemnity and toil. Based on all relationships and the family education for the tribe, nation and world, the time to start organizing the world’s tribes and the time of hope for the world has come at last!” – Reverend Sun Myung Moon

The family is the most significant school of love…

“The family is the most significant school of love. Through education in love and heart that parents can give their children within the sphere of the family, their hearts grow in depth and breadth. The family is the foundation stone for building the character of our children, and the school for teaching them love and virtue. Receiving education on the intellectual, physical and technical aspects on the foundation of emotional and normative education is the heavenly way.” – Reverend Sun Myung Moon

The family is the basic unit in the ideal world

“What is the system of an ideal world? Its basic unit is the family. The family is the base of heavenly kingdom, and the cornerstone for building the Heavenly Kingdom. No matter how large the population of citizens is, a person who confronts his nation with a love that extends beyond the family can travel freely in the Heavenly Kingdom.

You must have a mind like such a person, to receive education at home as in the textbook. The grandparents, parents, couple and children live in the family. If these are extended to the world, there will be people in the same age groups as the grandparents, parents, couple and children. Hence, a person who has experienced love in his family, as in the textbook, faces no hindrances anywhere in the world. He is qualified since he has lived according to the book. Such a man has no need to worry about food or lodging in any house. Such a time will come if only this kind of education is carried out.

I seem to be speaking of the remotest possibility. Try it, and see whether I am just telling you a fairy tale. I am teaching you to adapt yourselves to that world. The family is therefore the elementary textbook. If you live as taught in the family, there won’t be international borders or any other types of obstacles blocking you. With that heart, even closed doors or blocked walls will heartily welcome you with outstretched arms by opening themselves up. Grassland will respond to you in the same way. I sound crazy, don’t I? It is the same for God.

If He tries to teach His children, saying, “Since the ideal of love is so great, you must love everyone and everything more than your own lives!” They will reply, “How about you, God?” Then God must be able to say, “You have to do that, just as I have.” The reason is that He cannot teach us something that He cannot fulfill Himself. When He says, “I myself have endeavored to be absolutely obedient to love, so your couple must be submissive to love even at the cost of your lives, and walk a path of helping and living for others!” If they answer in the positive, contradictory logic on the front, back, left, right, up and down will be utterly resolved. Thus, God is also unconditionally submissive to love.

The restoration of the elder son’s right, the parents’ right, and kingship is first. After having restored the elder son’s right, you become the citizen of a new nation. Centering on the family, you have to experience, with your heart, the educational content of the four great textbooks. Next, based on the system of the ideal world, if a person applies the living environment of the family to the nation, the living environment of the nation to the world, the living environment of the world to the cosmos, and the living environment of the cosmos to God, nothing will ever block him. He will receive a red-carpet reception in the physical and spiritual worlds.” – Reverend Sun Myung Moon

The family is the place for training our hearts…

“The family is the place for training our hearts. Therefore, we have to love and live together with our brothers and sisters in schools and in the nation. Education from parents is education for the school, society and nation. Parents have to bequeath all emotional aspects to their children and successors. They have to lay the emotional foundation for their offspring by demonstrating how they should live in the family, in the society, and for the nation, just as how the parents have been living.” – Reverend Sun Myung Moon
