Often

Often, our life is not aligned with God,

Often, our heart just misleads us,

Often, our mind is scattered, in pieces,

Often, we are torn and tear others into pieces.

 

Often, we want to live in a better way,

Often, we are careless how others feel,

Often, we simply turn away,

Often, we are proud for our deeds.

 

Often, our mind goes to the east,

And often, our body stays in the west,

Often, we loose harmony,

and often, our days are in disunity.

 

Often, we cannot see the Light,

Often, we claim to be right,

Often, we fail to admit,

Often, our actions are fake.

 

Always, there is a way,

Always, He, who is still waiting,

Always, Salvation and Truth,

Always, Pray, Redeem and Change,

 

So God’s Blessings can be upon on you

and through you on others!

You are a gift to this world

Though the world around is doing its best to keep all of us down, to cage us in the treadmill of our daily routines, to numb us just enough not to see how large portion of our efforts are only in the pursuit of vanities there is one thing what can never be taken away, what can never be denied:

You are a gift to this world.

There is a chance you might not have realized it or you’ve forgotten it, maybe you are among us, who’s started to doubt in it. Don’t.

You are so unique that you are the only one to have that particular universal truth in the world that is not known and can not be shown by any others. Just you can manifest that kind of greatness based on your true potential, just you can give that goodness to the world what God gave you as His Blessing at your birth.

Live up to your true potential, don’t shy away from the growing, being more mature and completed: that is the only way to leave this broken history for a better one.

Written by you, as one of the torchbearers.

Heavenly Parent loves you compassionately because He can see you all the magic, mystery and benevolence you are capable of to show His Blessing.

You are a gift to this world.

You are here to live, not here to die…

You are here to live, not here to die

whatever is thrown at you,

you are here to prosper,

not only to survive

 

It takes more than some courage

to leave the treadmill

your well-known niche

to discover God’s wish

 

Which is you, nobody else

the unique and unrepeated,

only-once lived, eternal one,

with divine love

 

You might have been lost

you may have given up

but now you are here

to change your own path

 

You are here to live

you are here to love

to bring joy over sorrow,

turn the ash into ground

 

Whatever is in God

it is hidden in you, too

21 Teachings on Happiness ​

  1. We all desire to be happy but we are constantly failing to recognize we are immature to achieve it.
  2. Longing for happiness is like starving. However, as easy it is to have poor food choices as easy it is to burn our soul.
  3. Nobody deserves to be unhappy but this is what we all know since we were born into this. The One who came to teach was killed because we were unable to think of actually leaving our comfort zone.
  4. How many times have we crucified the Messiah out of ignorance? Those who say they have never done it don’t know what they are talking about.
  5. Preaching about happiness is teaching about something that no one has ever had the chance to fully understand. Even God cannot be completely happy up until one person remains in the realm of ignorance and pain.
  6. There is no such a thing as individual joy. God would have no idea what you are talking about if you asked him about it.
  7. There is the question of sin. But our Heavenly Parent has never understood the differences out of the original realm of heart. For Him, everything else is relative and temporary – no matter how we see this.
  8. Living on Earth and trying to succeed only here is like watching a cooking show. You’ll never get the taste of the real food and you’ll never have the chance to discover your own unique ways to co-create if you just accept what others do for themselves in their lives.
  9. People always want to be happy but they don’t know they can’t. Unless they start to think to be happy together with others, based on the patterns God created in the Nature, they will always end up wanting to be happy but never truly be.
  10. True joy and happiness is not mesmerizing, it is not like a drug, it is nothing like a purple mist: it’s our natural state of being we have never experienced.
  11. To be happy you need to experience who you really are meant to be and what it actually means in the everyday life: you are meant to be the child of God.
  12. To be happy you need to grow.
  13. Happiness is an active emotion. It requires ceaseless efforts to live for the sake of others for a greater purpose.
  14. If you can not be happy, God can not be happy either.
  15. God’s only joy during the Creation was to think of you being happy once and living together in evolving harmony.
  16. You can’t give happiness and you can’t make others happy either. You can create an action to what others can respond so a constant flow of give and take actions will generate energy for existence and growing – that what we can call happiness and joy in its true sense.
  17. If you want to be happy for your own sake, you’ll never be able to do it.
  18. Thinking of others, how to help them, how to support them even beyond your everyday reach is the starting point of true happiness.
  19. Happiness is a result of actions. It starts with care, compassion, humbleness and dedication.
  20. On the road towards absolute happiness there is no ‘me’.
  21. Since God, our Heavenly Parent has created everything out of love, you will be happy for eternity. It’s up to you and your thoughts and actions when this will start.

I can’t make a barren sky

An honest prayer…

Prayers for Everybody

I can’t make a barren sky

just like I can’t make a blossoming meadow

I can’t create water to drink

just like I can’t create bread to eat

I can’t clean the air

just like I can’t clean the oceans

I can’t revive the broken

just like I can’t revive myself

without You

Heavenly Parent

I haven’t broken my vows. Then why?

What happens when you keep your life aligned with your prayers and promises and yet, something just pushing you down unexpectedly, again?

I do have a feeling, if we added all the prayers, good thoughts and wishes, pledges together, more than two Heavens could be built. Still, it is just not happening.

How so?

Individually, each and every one of us has experienced the overwhelming joy of hope and clarity, wisdom – leading a true life.

And by the same token, each and every one of us has also experienced the overbearing, suffocating, pressing doubts, disappointments, agony, misfortune – times of no hope and giving up.

Is it like we need to be balanced by some mysterious force of nature?

If that was the case, we wouldn’t feel misery and loss, tranquil knowledge would fill us to full extent.

I am a person of my prayers, a man of my words. Though I was needed to be taught I’m not omnipotent to solve everything by myself, I can say, I’m searching the highest possible ways to live up to God’s, our Heavenly Parent’s standard of heart and deeds.

And despite this, grief and sorrow visit me in my everyday life.

Have I done something wrong?

I can always find something in myself to do better, however, it just doesn’t add up. It feels, it can’t be the same weight.

Have you ever had this feeling? I’m sure you have, just like each and every one of us.

The key is the individual responsibility.

We all have it in each situation. Just like the first couple had at the Garden, just like our parents, our children and our siblings.

You can’t actually help somebody if he or she doesn’t want to be helped.

It is that simple.

You only can pretend to be happy if there is one single person left in pain.

Even if we do everything, we do bring it on, we need partners to live and work, to prosper, just like for each inhale we need and exhale.

Just like for each daylight we need the night to stay alive.

Each action requires a subject partner who can make us object partners. And it goes around.

To wait them to recognize this pattern which is everywhere in the Nature is the hardest part.

Doing 100 % is just our part.

Times to grasp and embrace God’s, our Heavenly Parent’s heart.

What kind of being is God?

What kind of being is God? God likes both the good people and the bad people on earth. Even a condemned criminal going to his place of execution says, “God, have mercy on me” before he dies. In front of God, even those who are facing the death penalty for their crimes resolve to become good again and to make a new start with hope. Why is it that, in so doing, they want to offer their best service to God, depend on Him, and be with Him? Why, in their innermost heart, do people willingly leave their parents, and brothers and sisters, wanting to be closest to God in order to share their personal concerns with Him? This is because God is true.

How to go to Heaven

Compared with spirit world, Earth is but a speck of dust. The spirit world is an eternal world, transcending time and space. If a spirit person commands, “The person who lived in such and such an age with such and such a heart, please come forward”, then that person will appear in an instant. It is a world in which feelings and intuition turn into reality. There are no factories there to produce food. There are no auto-mobile factories. There is nothing like that. To register yourself in spirit world, you need a certificate based upon your life on Earth. How are you going to obtain it? I’m talking about a certificate of life that will let you say: “This is what I became. This is what I did.” You cannot just make your own certificate. First, Satan has to write one for you. After you receive that certificate, you have to receive one from Jesus. Finally, you have to receive a certificate from God. You will need these three certificates. When you go to spirit world, you will find that it is made up of three very large realms. Those who lived for others will go to the highest level. Those who lived for themselves, however, will find themselves on the lowest level. They will find that everyone is opposing them, whereas everyone will welcome those who lived for others. Once you are in spirit world, your parents and spouse cannot help you. The people in the highest levels are those who lived for the sake of others. In the uppermost tiers are those who travelled throughout the world living for others with a heart that expanded their love for their mother and family. With a saintly heart, they always are looking for ways to save the people of the world from evil. The one who lives for himself goes to Hell and the one who lives for others goes to Heaven. People separate into these two worlds at death. So, we must live for the sake of the whole, for the sake of the greater good. Live for the sake of the world, for the sake of God and for the sake of human liberation. Someday competitions will take place to see who can live for the sake of others to a greater degree. In the heavenly world, the person who has lived for the sake of others will go to the higher position. So you can leap to a higher position by living for the person who is higher than you are. Living for that person is the same act as God bringing forth His own object through His creative act. Thus, that person comes to stand as your object partner of love.

 

(from the book: Sermons of Reverend Sun Myung Moon)

How can your love become eternal and unchanging?

How can your love become eternal and unchanging? It is possible because God does not change; the same God who was with Adam and Eve is with you. Even though historically speaking Adam and Eve lived many thousands of years before you, Adam was supposed to have had the father’s role to you in the spirit world since he was supposed to be the dwelling of God Himself. Had this occurred there would have been no generation gap between father and son. The love that you feel and the love that Adam and Eve feel would have been the same emotion of love with no gap or barrier. In that love you can go anywhere, even climb up on top of God. Love brings intimacy and complete oneness; there is no formality in love. Therefore, even though a man becomes President of the United States, he exercises no formality with his wife. They do not bow and give some long greeting every time they meet.
