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.

SMM Quotes – 241

“When you are sick and in pain, it means that somewhere in your body the normal harmony or balance is broken. Something invaded and upset it, causing a reaction to eliminate the disruptive element. That is why you feel pain. The universal repelling force operates in your body to drive away the foreign invasion and sickness, and the struggle between the two produces the sensation of pain. When somebody hits you, you feel pain from that invasion. That pain motivates you to do something to protect yourself.” – Reverend Sun Myung Moon

Love Yourself

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.

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

 

 

Joshua Dragon

(from the “Break-up Therapy”)

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

You are a good person (Affirmation)

Always remember: you are a good person, who is capable for greatness. You are beloved by Heavenly Parent and you will be beloved the very same way by your family.

 

Accept yourself not because what you did or you think you should have done but because you are a one of a kind, unique, special being who can manifest the highest level of love through actions.

 

Say it loudly: “I am beloved. I am special, I am unique and I can manifest the highest level of love through my actions.”

Friday Affirmation ​

Say this to yourself as a repetition: “I love myself for no reason. I am who I can be. I can achieve anything what I set my mind to do so.”

 

Let yourself hear your own voice saying these.

 

Say as you mean it, even if it is a challenge to accept it.

 

This is not a textbook, this is life experience.

 

You can re-create yourself for the better each day!

Anyone to talk to is You, God

Anyone to talk to is You, God

 

All the deaf and selfish

and all the caring are asleep

leaving the ones in need

leaving me in need

of talking

sharing and

bonding

of feeling to be related

and connected

You are the only one, who is awake

 

You gave me life

and let me find my purpose

which has never been so easy

but I could wear off the selfishness

in a rough path

so I could be more like You

at least

try

 

Nobody has ever longed for me

as much as You, Father

not for Yourself, but for me

and that love is strange

still unusual

in this life

 

There is noone else at this vigil

You are the only one who listens

and hear me out

and I wish I could love You more

but this is all I can do

trying to grow

and be more mature

 

Anyone to talk to is You, God

there is noone else awake this time of the night

nor in my life

my heart is invisible for the world

I matter the most to You

I know

 

For some, I am like You

Father

guiding light

brother

through all the challenges

 

I can love You more, Father

as I’m evolving

this way

 

Anyone to talk to is You, God
