“Are we happy alone? We feel joy if we love each other, standing on the same level with our partner. Can there be freedom when love is excluded? Love has unlimited freedom. We can even take pride in becoming a leader who chastises others with the motivation of love. You have to be aware of such a truth.” – Reverend Sun Myung Moon
Have you ever thought our world is doomed and people are less likely to manifest eternal happiness and cause joy to each other? You might be right about it…
However, there is an “if” in this case.
First of all, “if” we really look around and see the recent state of our world today we can safely say, there are barely any glimpses of true shine of hope and wisdom.
Can any leaders in any field be trusted to take a lead for the greater good not for own, selfish interests?
Of course, plenty of them are giving donations which is great, some support people in need, children in crisis and so on.
A great yet small sum in exchange for what they did to them, to all of us. Anyhow, we are all into this, together, collectively.
Yes, personally you most probably never harmed anyone, never caused any regional conflict to gain more for your business, possibly never lied bluntly instead of being honest and most probably you never took advantage on the vulnerable ones.
However, we all let it happen. We all let the evil to spread among us, causing misery and agony.
With every day not changing and evolving for the greater, common good, we keep repeating the same, vicious cycle what has been happening since we remember for human history.
And maybe there is where everything lies behind.
We forgot the beginning.
We became purposeless.
We became rootless.
This rootlessness made us to be ruthless. And instead of dreaming for a great future and building it, we keep doing everything against ourselves and each other.
“IF” we look around, if we really look at that, especially the Nature, we can see patterns. Patterns which are unchanging, eternal in every level in the Universe. Even in our own cells. Even in the planetary systems. And they are to show how our own lives are supposed to be.
Living for the sake of others.
It all starts with an internal desire, continues with the right mindset. It goes on with the right way of speaking. And then actions come. First: mind and body unity, centred on a true heart.
A person who is growing this way, can relate in a more mature level with another one. Together, they are able to unite in a much higher and heartfelt relationships. A true one.
It can happen between a parent and a child, siblings and spouses.
As for siblings, this can be applied to anyone, every one of us can relate to each other as true brothers and sisters.
We can even use this kind of approach with the world around us, keeping and growing a sustainable garden of life.
“If” we can see the patterns, maybe it takes time, then, we will be able to start to think of applying them, step by step to our lives.
Will it be successful at first? Not necessarily.
Will we succeed ultimately? Absolutely.
What we need here is, to be able to see, we are not meant to suffer, we never were. We need to be able to see, we were never meant to hurt each other or abandon in need.
Everyone deserves to be happy and live a joyous life.
We need to find our original mindset for that. Since the desire is in our heart, we are already at the second step.
The impulse of the original mind, which everyone possesses, is to abhor evil and exalt goodness.
So, what are we waiting for?
We were born to be good with such a great creativity for co-creation.
Don’t worry, my child
don’t you worry
I’m standing right next to you
I’m with you
You may think the world is over
you might feel this way
but even if it is so
I’ll be with you
The broken sadness in you
will pass away
complete happiness will rise
with the morrow
Loneliness and Isolation
the two loyal friends
will better suit to you
Can you accept, my child
the love I’m giving you
Can I give you more
to heal you by tomorrow
I’m worried my child,
I’m worried for you
I’d like to find a way
a better way to and for you
But you shan’t worry
if you open up
just a little bit more
let me embrace you
You may think I’m too old
and you are independent
to be so close friends
partners for life
I’m here any case
trying to catch…

People on Earth
With mutual love
Respect and prosperity
It is to be happy
Living with God
In a true family
Is a sibling
So equally loved
And tears are shared
In grief and in love
It is to be happy
Living for others
When there aren’t any
Excuses and explanations
Reasoning for abominations
Just the pure desire
Intention and Will
To make this life we have
If we do not do enough, how can we stand in front of God? Our conscience will not permit us to. One thing we should never be in the future is ashamed of ourselves. I have always lived conscious of the fact that I could never lead a life I was ashamed of.
We need salvation. This is a very real situation. We want to be saved, and we will be saved, not with shame but with dignity. We cannot eat as we like; we cannot sleep as we like; we cannot say and do things as we like when there is the possibility that later we might be ashamed of that action. At this very moment, our brothers and sisters are losing their lives in the hands of Satan. How can we be complacent?
You must not just borrow this way of thinking and this way of life from me, but you must make it your own. You must be proud of the concept itself and live this life just as I do so that you can become true descendants. I do not just think this way, I live way. It is not just words; it is actions.
Now we know how we will achieve salvation and how we can be saved with dignity, without shame. We are all individual messiahs of love. When we practice love, love will come back to us, with ownership. That is reality.
Plant love and you will never perish. You may suffer, but you will never perish or be ashamed. Do you understand? Those who say, “Father, I understand deeply now and I will live the way of love,” raise your hands. Let us pray.

This is how God is: God invests everything into a being, and then that being experiences love. Then that explosive love will be returned back to the original Being who made all that investment. God created everything according to this principle.
Since God gave everything to man, a man should want to give everything to a woman. Then the woman will want to give everything back to the man, and the man will want to give everything back to God. Things are created that way. When this give and take action takes place in a lively way, then the two will come into complete unity and never separate. That is the focal point of God’s love. When a man and woman are really in love and live in love, God is living there too. That is the most ideal place, the nucleus.
This is the secret of a subject-object relationship, the secret of being a spouse. Pour your love into your spouse; live for the sake of your spouse; do things for his sake, day after day. When he gets saturated, he may say, “Why are you doing all this? I don’t want this,” and he may even want to escape. But if you continue loving him, he will turn around and return your love. Love will grow. That is the Principle of Creation.
What are saints? Saints are the ones who are ahead of other people in realizing, practising, and teaching this principle. In other words, saints are people who have expanded this realm of living for the sake of others. It’s all part of the law of the creation. We must go and we must love. We must put all our love and everything we have into our families, into other people, and into the nation. This is the course we have to follow. Then this living principle will just go around and around and expand throughout space.
There is only one way for us to go. I, as an individual, must love my spouse and then bring all of society into oneness and later meet God. Then I will fall in love with God and jump into that love and live happily day by day. When I will really be living for the sake of other people, the society, and the nation.
If you are trying to find love, you are misguided. You cannot “find” love. It goes against the process of the law of creation to look for love. You have to invest yourself first. Have you done that? Have your poured your love into your spouse? Love is bound to come back to you as much as you have poured your life into the other. When that happens, love starts coming back.
We are establishing this tradition here on earth for the first time in history. I have lived for the sake of leaving this tradition behind. My life has been absolutely consistent with the will of God. I always invest myself wholeheartedly. I spare nothing. I always search out how I can give even more. Then all things start to follow me. At that point ownership begins. That is when you start to truly own things. A husband and wife may think they love each other and say they love each other, but they need to be patient with each other. If one disagrees with the other and gets offended and they start quarreling, that is obviously not love. Love emerges when we want to put our whole life into the relationship so there is nothing more to put in. After that love starts coming back. Then there is no more quarrelling.
The more we love, the more love and ownership will come to us. That is the living, daily philosophy of the Unification Church. When we practice this, we are guaranteed to be on the right path. Even if we do not realize where we are going, we are going in the right direction. Imagine a big family with many, many brothers and sisters and uncles and aunts and in-laws. Who is going to be the center of that family, the master of that house, in the future? It will be the person who invests the most into that family. It will be the person who gives everything he has for the sake of the other family members day in and day out without expecting anything in return. You can predict who is going to be the center of that household and be the true owner of everything. Everyone and everything will want to belong to that person.
We know we must love the world, but that concept is too vague. How do we love? This is something that Unification Church members must know. We have to put our life totally into what we are doing. This is what God has done for us. If we do that all things will want to belong to us. In order to own everything with love, give. Give all you have. This is our credo.
Don’t say, “Where is love?” Don’t say, “My husband must love me,” or “I expect love from my wife.” If you do, peace and love can never be realized within your family. There is no love until we put our love in. Do you understand? This is an amazing truth. On an individual level all the way up to the national level, we must love unto our very lives. If you put in everything you have, your investment will return as love towards you. How wonderful that is!
If you want to be a true mother or true father, you must ask yourself how much you have loved your children in a righteous way. Children who are loved absolutely will never want to leave you, even if you scold them. When everything comes back to you and wants to be owned by you, you can live happily every day. That is the ideal. God loves us, but we have to love God too. All things belong to God, and if we love God, all things also belong to us. There is no other way to own anything in the universe except through loving God. If we love God, we begin to own things.
