Learning and Practise

When a truth is learned, it must be practiced. Indeed, knowledge that is not put into practice is not truly learned; it soon fades away like a mirage. The person who claims to be wise and devout, but who never acts on his wisdom, is engaging in Hypocrisy. Conversely, action without learning is also foolish. In the East, people are taught the virtue of being reserved and taciturn in order that they might not display knowledge that they not yet mastered in practice. It is far better first to act on an idea in private and see to its result than to announce it to others while it is yet untested and unmastered. This reserve is especially apt in the case of religious and moral teaching, whose practice is not easy. Only a teacher who has first mastered and embodied his teaching is worthy of respect.

SMM Quotes – 188

“How much do our political leaders love their country? Any politician who lacks a heart of truly wanting to share in the life of common citizens will soon disappear. It doesn’t matter how well bred or educated this person may be. He will disappear like an air bubble formed on the surface of water. Any leader who does not love the citizens will not be able to escape judgment by the citizens of his country and by history.” – Sun Myung Moon

Leadership by Example and Honest Government

As I Can See

Government should operate impartially and with integrity. Its leaders should be honest, moral, and virtuous people, who will not take bribes or act corruptly. Because people look up to a nation’s leaders as role models, they should set a good example for the people.

God emphasizes and values any quality that resembles Him

As I Can See

Whenever God visited humanity who have committed countless sins and transgressions up until today, He emphasized and valued any quality that resembled Him – even a quality only a little greater than the numerous evil qualities of men – so that He could visit His children, beseechingly and desperately, based on this quality and on the original standard. This is the heart of parents.

Today, you stand in the position that you should move forward to reach the heart of parents with missions for your race and nation as well as for the world. When you look at your race, your race stands in the orphan’s position, where he is screaming and crying looking for his lost parents. When you look at one nation, you find it a nation who has lost its parents. When you look at the world, you must have a heart to recognize it as a…

What is true never perishes

As I Can See

What is true never perishes; it keeps growing. Therefore, you have no reason to despair, knowing that there is God, the subject, who will take absolute responsibility for whatever you leave behind for His sake. He will find the people who are willing to inherit the tradition of your commitment and expand it to the world.

You don’t need to seek praise and approval from other people nor feel bad because no one appreciates your efforts. Look at a tree that is just about to bring forth new shoots in the spring. Doesn’t it look lonesome somehow? Who would imagine that one day this lonely plant will grow to be a towering tree and that many birds will come and make their nests in it? A tree grows silently to maturity, but when the time is ripe, it naturally bears fruit, which the entire universe will then be able to…

The School Of Life

As I Can See

All beings desire to reach a higher ground, a better place, through circular motion. Where, then, is the better place we go to live eternally? While in the physical world, we live in our physical body. Our mind, though, is headed toward the eternal world. We are born into this world, and we pass through our teenage years, our twenties, thirties, middle age, and we eventually reach old age. Ultimately, we come to the end of our lives, just as the sun finally sets on the horizon. Those who know that the spirit world exists, however, know very well that the time spent in our physical body is relatively short, and that the world we face after we die is eternal. They know that our life on earth is a period of preparation for the eternal world.

We are like students who must earn credits in all our classes so…

The Value of Hope

As I Can See

Each of us goes through life ignorant of when we will die. We do not know that we won’t die in a traffic accident. I think some people will die saying, “Oh, Reverend Moon was right!” expressing regret only at that moment. We need to know that we are traveling a very serious path in life. We need to use every second of our life to prepare ourselves for the eternal world. We should be aware that we are standing on such a fateful path.

When people go to spirit world, they can be divided into two general types. The first comprises those who live out their natural life in this world, and the second comprises those who experience an untimely death. Among the latter, some die as a result of punishment and others die in order to pay indemnity for the nation or the world. Suppose God established one…
