“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
Love yourself not because of who you are in the eyes of others
and not because of the person who you think you should be
Love yourself because the seed of God resides in you
and because your actions in life can turn to be fertilizers to grow
Love yourself not because of what you have achieved
and not because of the degrees and praises
Love yourself because you can resemble to your Father
and because you were given creativity to love like Him
Love yourself because you have the ability to grow when you are pushed down
and because of the hard-earned chances for forgiveness which brings unity
Love yourself not because you have a body for vanity
but because you can use it to love even your enemy.
Love yourself to see the light which can radiate through you
and bring harmony for the sick, mute, deaf and blind.
“In history there are many teachings. One is that if someone mistreats you, repay him in the same way: an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth, a death for a death. However, the most revolutionary teaching was given by the one who said, “Love your enemy and pray for those who persecute you.” Needless to say, that was Jesus Christ.” – Sun Myung Moon
