The standard of love that Jesus established

What did Jesus do to realize the value of such a cosmic life? He elevated love. In other words, he propagated new words of the gospel to complete the value of cosmic life in heaven and earth. The central point of that gospel was love.

What would be the most important thing for an individual to be able to connect his own private life to the standard of eternal value? As Jesus said, he must have such love that he can sacrifice his life for the sake of others. In fact, Jesus established the standard of value of life by loving others more than himself.

Similarly, Jesus, who appeared representing the value of heavenly life, taught humankind to possess such love that they can sacrifice their lives for the sake of others’ salvation. You must understand clearly that the man who appeared with such a loving heart, who loved his colleagues more than himself, who loved the world more than he loved his colleagues, and who loved God and the thousands upon thousands of saints more than he loved the world was Jesus Christ.

Jesus did not live with an individualistic ideology to find the value of his own individual life or with individualistic love. Even when he loved a friend, his love transcended the relationship of loving friendship. Jesus had the perspective that he loved the friend representing the world. He also loved that friend with the heart that represented God.

Likewise, Jesus did not practice love on a one-to-one basis. When Jesus loved a certain individual, it was with God’s love, with cosmic love, and then with individual love. You must be able to experience this. Only when you do so can you rightly comprehend the value of Jesus’ life.

Up to what level did Jesus raise the standard of his own life? He envisioned himself existing for the sake of the world. Even when he loved a friend of his, forsaking himself, he kept the perspective that he loved him for the sake of the world. This was Jesus’ standard.

Jesus could establish the standard of love of worldwide salvation on the cross because he had the heart of love and sacrifice with which he could die for the sake of an individual and for the whole simultaneously. You must know that Jesus was the hero of love, life and character. That was not all. Jesus then prayed toward Heaven, “My Father, if it is possible, may this cup be taken from me. Yet not as I will, but as You will.” (Matthew 26:39) Because Jesus wished to live only according to the will of the Father, he could demonstrate God’s love to humankind beyond the valley of death. Similarly, we must know that the entire course of Jesus’ life was filled with such remarkable love.

Next, what did Jesus Christ, who came with the mission to restore the cosmic life, raise to find the value of life? That, too, was love. This love was not meant for individual human beings but for the world, God and the eternal world — the spiritual beings who are in the spirit world.

In order for us, in our daily lives, to realize the value of the life of Jesus, who represented God’s love, we who must take responsibility for the restoration of the whole life must not deal with whichever matter we face with transient emotions. We must deal with all things with the resolution and determination that we will model ourselves after Jesus’ character, who represented the whole on the cosmic level. Only after we pass through such a day-to-day life can we complete the worldwide life and make a connection with eternal life.

In other words, if your day-to-day lives have a transient value that affects only you, you cannot make a connection with eternity. That is the reason you must lead a life in which you can make a connection with God’s eternal love. Only when you do that will the eternal God be with you. Because Jesus lived making daily connections with God throughout his life, though Jesus is dead, the Will of God, who wished it to be completed by Jesus, has been continuously carried on toward its completion.

Jesus’ view of life for the sake of the restoration
Reverend Sun Myung Moon
January 6, 1957

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

The Kingdom Of Heaven Will Be Constructed On This Earth Centering On You

“If you become the person who can act in place of the ideology of the universal Kingdom of Heaven to unfold the movement of God’s love, life and truth, then the world of peace will be built on this earth. Therefore, your own parents are not the only parents, your own siblings are not the only siblings and your own children are not the only children. When you become the person who can regard all people as your parents, siblings and children, when you look upon the many people who are suffering in the world of death, you will not be able to relate with them without tears. When you look at your siblings or someone younger, you will feel a strong sense of responsibility to save them, and with tears you will make every effort to carry it out. If you truly become this kind of person, then the Kingdom of Heaven will be constructed on this earth centering on you.” – Reverend Sun Myung Moon

Seventh to Be Born, First to Live

God has always been there for me. He’s been there since my early childhood, He was there even before my birth.

I was the seventh to be born, the first to live.

He was there, when oldest young brother ascended and helped me to curate his early memory lively.

He was there at the edges of my life, so no literal missteps, no irresponsibility saw me pass away.

God was there to protect my children, saving them, pulling them from the brink of death and nurture them to be one of a kind Blessings in the world for both the Nature and the humanity.

God was there, when I wasn’t there for Him.

He showed me how to love as He does, He showed me how to see as He sees.

He’s been helping me to be more complete and unique, and He has been there for me even when noone else.
God has taught me to accept the light in me and understantd my real value. As He opened His heart I could experience: in a way He is as fragile as we all are…

I was the seventh to be born, the first to live.

Yet, I died.

 

Not even once…

You are complete in God’s heart

No matter where you were born

No matter how you have lived

No matter whether you’ve lost

No matter if you ever win

 

No matter what was your path

No matter if you’re left behind

No matter when you gave up

No matter if you’re still stuck

 

Since

 

You are never alone in this journey

even it’s hard to pass

the desert you are in

and you feel there in noone to invite you in

 

It is okey to be broken

it is okey to feel down

it is okey to cry

and it is okey to shout

 

Because

 

God chose you for a reason

even if you can’t see it

You are one and only

unrepeated and unique

 

Everything what you missed

can be found now

You are complete

in God’s Heart

 

Love yourself as much as He loves you

God is always there for you

Don’t give up hope

when life is a dark cloud

and there seems to be no way to see and be

believe and trust in me

I’ve been whispering

with thunders

I’ve been crying for you in the rains

I thought I’d lost you

and I couldn’t know how to raise

your willingness

to understand love in its beauty

that it is meant to be a verb

beyond your own interest and needs

 

Don’t give up on hope

just because you can’t see

what is ahead of you

just like the light with its spectrum

the invisible is experiencable

and even if you don’t feel it right now

it does not mean you’ve mistaken the path

’cause the part of the journey is

your self-discovery

 

Don’t be afraid

I’m staying with you

both when you agonize

and when you come to new life

I’m here with you

just hang on and trust

at least that much

as I have faith in you

Your Heart is a Hidden Treasure in Plain Sight

You need to know how precious you are.

Your value is so unique in the whole Universe that nobody has ever been like you and will never be.

You are a one of a kind wonder, a one of a kind star.

God’s true love can radiate through you as you act for others without expecting anything in return. When you forget your own pain and turn the negative energy into positive creation then you pave the path towards Heaven on Earth not only for yourself but the whole world. And this is you special talent: co-create life.

Your true identity is in your heart.

Just because the world is not ideal you can still be. You can shake off all the burdens of the everyday life and you can be free even in the treadmill of your life.

You are special.

The Sun is the Gift of God for You

The Sun is a part of your life.

 

Even if you can’t see it, it’s constantly radiating its life-defining beams. There may be fluctuations but its inner nature is unchanging: giving light and heat to let the sentinel beings lead a comfortable life.

 

Even the darkness is expressed with the lack of light, even the cold is compared to the warmth.

 

The Sun doesn’t mind if it is taken for granted, it always provides its best for us.

 

However, it’s our responsibility to avoid sunburnt or being cold – we need to be able to resonate with its characteristics and manifestations.

 

Of course, we must eat, drink, breathe but nothing is possible without the Sun, the gift of God.

 

The gift of God.
