Bird of Love

bird of love
where’s the bird of love
now
has it flown away
or
never been
here
at all

 
past is haunting
every day
living in
a bad daydream
nevermore
says the crow
I don’t wanna face
this facade show
because
you’re the Sun
in my life
you’re the magic
and despite all
what went wrong
I still love you
I still have hope
forevermore

remember the good times

remember the good times

remember the holy ground

where we stood and stayed

danced and kissed

through the night

 

remember the good times

but

all the years are gone now

remember the good times

but you

never said why you left

remember the good times

how we dreamt and yet survived

and

how we broke everything

what was nice and so dear

now we know every pain

 

all the nights and all the days

I’m just a wanderer in a desert

what’s my fate and indemnity

nobody knows, nobody knows

all the nights and all the days

I’m just a wanderer in a desert

what’s my fate and indemnity

nobody knows me, nobody knows me

The True Meaning of Peace (01)

Peace carries the meaning of becoming horizontal and harmonizing. It cannot be accomplished alone. Subject partner and object partner can experience joy and happiness when the vertical relationship is in unison with the horizontal relationship. Everything must be complete and satisfactory. Only then can we call that peace. Peace itself is insufficient. An ideal must show spherical motion, not just stay within a horizontal dimension. It should have a three-dimensional nature. When we call someone an ideal person, he must have an ideology for the future. In other words, that person is not living just a two-dimensional life in reality, but, having a certain ideal, his life has a three-dimensional quality. An ideal cannot operate merely in a horizontal plane.” – Reverend Sun Myung Moon

What Is The Human Purpose?

“What is the human purpose? There are two; for woman, it’s man and for man, it’s woman. We are born, not for ourselves, but for each other. Centering on what? True Love. That is core love, the essence of love. We have to understand love more deeply. Before I even came to exist, before my life began, love existed and was the originator. Because of love my life began. The concept of love is made up of a plus side which is man and a minus portion which is woman. Originally there was an invisible concept of love such as this. The positive and negative aspects were deployed separately so the positive portion constitutes the vertical existence and the minus portion constitutes the horizontal existence. Where does love meet in this concept? The only conceivable place we can imagine it, is that love can only take place in the vertical relationship. When a child is born he looks towards this point within man and woman. There are different levels. Both plus and minus go through different steps to reach the same horizontal level which intersects the vertical line. Often a man grows up beyond that horizontal line, but he can no longer see ahead so he realizes, “This is the point where I am supposed to be” and he goes back to the horizontal line. Then he starts looking toward the center and so does the woman from her side. Where do they meet? Right at the center. There are no two planes, only this one horizontal line and this place is the only place they will meet. Each one will know where to meet. ”

Noble Dream

People are always contemplating doing something and are always seeking after something. The important thing is what they are looking for, what kind of dream they hope to fulfill. Men and women have dreams, as does a family, nation and even the whole world. On a wider level, the invisible world of spirit is also pursuing a dream. There is some entity which created all the universe and that entity must have had a dream or a reason for creating everything.

 

If you are living in the midst of a family and society that have a chaotic or confused situation, you feel dizzy, as though you were twisting back and forth, first one direction then another, without control. You want to be turning steadily in one direction, with order and joy. When you relate to some object for a certain purpose then automatically you have a common center between you. The actions of winding and unwinding both have a relationship to the axis. If you are turning first one way and then another, but you are accomplishing something by doing so, then you feel good. Even your eyes want to have a purpose for looking out, not just stare aimlessly or move independently of each other. When a person’s two eyes are looking steadily at something, you know he has a purpose in mind.

 

People often think dreams are phantom things without order or direction, but that is not the kind of dream we are seeking. Our dream has direction, purpose and discipline. It is a high, noble dream. Suppose there was such a thing as a company that manufactured and sold dreams. What would be the highest-quality, most expensive dream? Maybe women would consider the dream of beauty to be the highest quality; the dream would include beautiful clothes and a beautiful face. A man might have the dream of being a broad-shouldered athlete. A woman may have great beauty but if there is no purpose to her beauty, does it have meaning? Would anyone like to be a beautiful doll that stayed all day long in a glass box? No one could tolerate it. Real beauty is not just external appearance, like a doll’s, but requires active motion toward a goal, with a purpose.

 

Do women want to be beautiful in order to impress other women or to relate with other beautiful women? Why does a person have beauty as her dream? Beauty is not an end in itself. but a means to greater fulfillment. The goal of beauty is love. A beautiful woman is searching for a man who will love her. Beauty finds its consummation at the terminal of love.

 

Men want to be masculine and well-respected, but for what purpose? Suppose you wanted to become the strongest man in the world and you worked out every morning with weights. Once you became the champion, would that be the end? If a man won many boxing matches and finally became the world champion boxer, receiving cheers and a standing ovation from the crowd, how would he feel if some big, tall man came out and presented him with a bouquet of flowers to honor him? Wouldn’t he prefer instead to see a beautiful woman stepping forward to present him with the bouquet? You men, tell me, would he prefer getting an enormous bouquet with thousands of flowers from a big, burly man, or would he like a smaller bouquet given to him by a nice lady?

 

Beauty searches for its complement to find harmony. A man searches for a beautiful, feminine woman and a woman searches for a masculine man. When you see a strong man and a lovely woman together, you feel it is a beautiful sight because they complement each other.

Drifting

There is a black hole in me

Without singularity

Fragments of life

Say me goodbye

Unreliable memories

Drifting in space

Who could be

You

Wasted me

I can’t embrace

The dead

Any more

Where would you be

If I were still alive

For you

Where would you be

If I were still there

I cannot be

The scent of your garden

Is broken history

 
I’m lonely and lost

I have everything I don’t need

Now, I am free (Separate togetherness)

I’ve walked on a long, cold, muddy road
I’ve thought light is in your hand you hold
But there was only shades of the night
I became empty, ran out of life

 
You were my temple, religion
You were hope and future illusion
But just lies and grand dellusions
You won freaking, rigged game of yours

 
Now I am empty
Now I am free
Now I can feel
eternity

 
I’m still on the cross, don’t get me wrong
I’m bleeding through all my bloody, deep holes
But I choose to be here, you see
I’m breaking the cycle of endless vanity

 
You can see the world as it goes
You can play your dreams in rabbit holes
You won’t be who you could be
If you don’t look farther than your pain

 
Now I am empty
Now I am free
Now I can feel
eternity

 
We are different galaxies
We have whole different needs
We say and claim different truths
We shall see beyond or lose

 
Now I am empty
Now I am free
Now I can feel
without you
eternity

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.

Why is true love so precious and important?

Why is true love so precious and important? It is because it is the means by which we can meet God. Just as human beings desire to meet God, God also wants to meet true human beings because of love. The love by which God can see, touch, and share with men and women at the same time, is the love by which men and women love each other. If anything other than love were to be recognized as the most valuable thing in the universe, men and women would fight each other to try to claim it for themselves. Once we realize that love is the highest value, however, we can strive to live for each other and become one with each other, sharing the happiness of possessing love together.
