Is Christmas your light?

Are you riding on the shopping tide
now
this time in your life
buying and consuming
taking and possessing
longing and needing
some extraordinary
long-desired
miniscule thing
wasting and ridiculing
the very one
who is supposed to hear
the one
who is supposed to speak
act and stand up
give and not want
the brave and long forgotten
true light-filled
conscious
steward of God
or
are you fighting for the lost ones
now
giving them true love
carrying them for an extra mile
in your life
is Christmas your light?

What if Jesus had had a Twitter account?

Would Jesus have been able to convey the new truth if he had had Twitter in his time?

He definately lived and active life, especially during his public mission years. In that 2 years and 8 months he gave a lot of spiritual guidances and speeches. Some were later collected and scribed (you know, the big black book, being number 1 bestseller of all time).

Yet, his message was received with confusions. How often he got the same questions since people either heard the new way of life first or had nothing to relate it to, so they started to doubt.

  • What if he had a Twitter account, saying a very brief message as a reminder of the actual topic?
  • Would it have made it easier for him to clarify the misunderstood and misinterpreted issues for the scholars and that time decision-makers?

Thinking of it: it’s happening these days, even on Twitter.

Short reminders outtaken from his core teachings are posted all the time.

In Jesus’ time the simple people, the poors and the poorers, the broken ones and the mistreated got his ideas very quickly and in a way started to implement right there on the spot. These were the lads and gals, families, who were ready to connect something truly magical which resonated with them and gave valid answers for their struggles in and out.

On the other hand, even the legends say stories when the richer and socially more established ones ridiculed him and his folks, doubted the teachings not even giving a slight chance to think whether it was true or not.

We all know how it ended…

Jesus can’t directly own a Twitter account these days either.

The ones living behind the rainbow still understand and feel his message and continuously give new chances for themselves and each other to try better and evolve.

Yet, those with more time, less struggles, those with more money and less challenges, those with more established opportunities and less everyday issues are constantly neglecting him and his teachings, fighting against either on Twitter or live. And they are louder.

Just as in Jesus’ days, the minority of haters and neglecters, the ones who easily take advantage on the masses, those who abuse the love of the eternal and unconditional love of God, our Heavenly Parent, are louder, more present, more active with their naysayings.

Up until the majority is busy to live up to the standard of a true and unconditional heart in action there won’t be a way to win the doubters’ heart and understanding.

Just as it was an impossible conversation 2000 years ago it is still today.

On the bright side, one thing worked that time and still works even today.

The very idea what Jesus applied in his life: Love is an action.

Instead of just talking about kindness and compassion (or laughing at), just put love into action. Not as it is convenient but as it is needed right there, right that time.

Without expecting anything in return love will evolve in us into abundance and we will be the ones who can ripe its fruits.

Not thousands of years later, but in our life, in our days.

Confirm your Twitter with loving messages and reminders but mostly live them in your life – unconditionally.

If Jesus had had a Twitter account in his time on Earth, he would have definately done this.

 

Blessings!

What All Created Things Need Most

Love is what every existing thing in Heaven and Earth needs the most. It is true that the one love is most important in Heaven and True Love centering on men is most important in the human world.

In Christianity they talk about God’s love. They believe that Jesus is someone who showed God’s love to human beings. We know very well that if there is any love worth longing for in the human world, it is the love of Jesus. If there is some love worth longing for in Heaven, it is God’s love. Likewise, our hope is to connect with God’s and Jesus’ love. The problem is, what is that love like? The original purpose of creation was for the first human ancestors to live centered on God and to live by God’s eternal love. However, we learned through the Principle that due to the Fall, they could not build a relationship of love with God. Instead they built a relationship of love with the enemy Satan.

If we recognize that the center of life, ideals and value for all created things is the love of God, people who cannot experience the love, ideals and life of God do not have any relationship with Heaven. This is true even if they talk about love, life and ideals. Why is humanity living in such a miserable state? It is because they lost the life, love and ideals of God. We have to experience this deep in our minds.

If someone longs for God’s life, love and ideals, no matter how sorrowful he is, he has the hope of revival. Given that God works to save people who are disconnected to His love, life and ideals, what providence would He conduct? We have to understand that in His work God moves the heart which longs for the true life, the heart which is thirsty for love, and the heart which is deprived of ideals.

How much have you longed for the love, the life and the ideals of God in your mind? If you do not have such a heart, there is no way to find God’s love. If such a shock does not explode from your mind, you cannot connect to the life, love and ideals of God, no matter how abundant they are.

The Last Days are nearing. People say universally that the end of the world is coming. There is no one in this world you can cling to and say that he or she can satisfy the hunger of your mind and give you life. There is no one who can be the only one you longed for in your heart, the only one who can fill you. The same thing holds true even in the sphere of ideals. We have to build a relationship with God’s life, love and ideals. Otherwise, we can only conclude that in the Last Days of history we cannot become a person of true love, life and ideals.

SMM Quotes – 246

“To become a friend and someone who is loved, one has to understand the other person’s sorrow and pain and comfort them. Only then can one become the other person’s friend. If you connect to someone’s heart and build a relationship of love, then you can move that person as you wish, and you will also do as he wants.” – Reverend Sun Myung Moon

The nature of love

Only love can make two people become one body centring on True Love: father and son, husband and wife, and father and mother can make one body. When brothers unite centring on True Love, they become one body. Only True Love can make unity and oneness. This is not the love of receiving, but the love of giving.

Are People Inherently Bad?

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

As I Can See

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
Abundant Grace
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…

The Common Problem of God and Man

What must finally be explained to everyone through science, philosophy, history and religion? It is the common problem of history, the current age and the future. This is also a problem for God. You should know that the cosmic value of your life and whether you can be proud of it depends upon whether you can establish the standard in your life of an inseparable relationship with God in which you move with God and halt with God.

What is the common problem of history, the current age and the future? Since all of humankind, past, present and future, commonly possesses the desires for life, the ideal and love (inner core), a truth or ideology or person must appear who will enable us to feel all these simultaneously in the daily process of our lives. History and religion are all thoroughly mobilized to address this problem.

Do you have the force of life by which you can live and the automatic force by which you can move toward the whole world of existence? There should be a source that brings connection and the stimulation of hope to the world of relationships. Do you have such a source? You should also ask yourself whether the power of life springs forth from within the relationships you have with such a source.

You should bring the ideal of the entire universe to your inner core and the whole ideal of creation to your hearts. You should have the inner core, feeling and intuition which say that since Heaven is moving in such and such a way, no existing being or thing can be neglected. If you do not have this, you should rethink the hopes you are pursuing today.

You long for the love that deeply touches your heart. It is not humanistic love, pursued by man. It is heavenly love, desired by the original mind. You are longing for the kind of love that can sing for eternity and penetrate and move the eternal ideal and life. Thus, the whole of your thinking and movements should express the inner core of love. You will, thus, be the greatest victor of life if you can make the connection with such a realm of love, which embraces the environment and universe in which you live and can even embrace God.

As for theistic believers, though they acknowledge that God is the absolute and omnipotent Creator, why has their love for God and for absolute goodness become weaker than the love of secular people? This is why God sighs today. God’s sorrow is that while God’s love is greater than human parental love for a child, He cannot love humanity this much. How does God relate to humankind? Through love. We want to receive God’s love within the realm of our life and forget everything through the shock of His love. If we connect with the power of love that can melt all the grief in our heart, we can never betray Heaven. We would have no need to teach goodness then.
