Ultimate purpose

No matter how powerful a king of some nation may be, if he is all by himself in the palace, he is a miserable man. He’s got to have a queen; without a queen, he cannot even think of having a family. All people were meant to be educated about the purpose of life, to grow up centered upon God and to be unified in marriage, leading to a fulfilling life. For what ultimate purpose? The ultimate goal is joy. God will be joyful, creation will be joyful, spirit world will be joyful; everything will be joyful. But the word “joyful” will never be fulfilled unless man and woman come together in unified and harmonious give and take.

Whose parent is He?

So, whose parent is He?

Is He the parent of mine, yours, or whose, specifically?

In the whole known and recently rediscovered human history, He was always told, written, expected to be the parent of some kind of denominations, certain ‘prophetic’ religious groups, races, nations. He was declared as the ‘supporter’ of selfishness backed ‘public desires’, He was named and titled in several ways and positions. However, new and new explanations, revelations were found and revealed, suggesting a misunderstood previous ‘version’ of Him.
Although, He might never changed, we, humans always wanted to see Him as our aims required, some of us silently, some of us conquering the world.

Is the African tale of Fidi Mukulu differs so much from the oriental creation-stories?
Is anyone still can believe, that Muslims, Jews, Christians have different Creator?

Putting aside the self-inducted, historical, political, economical, media explanations, what are always explanations, is there any major differences?
God can have vast amount of names, He will still remain God. Heavenly Parent is our original Heavenly Parent, constantly trying to reach out for each and every one of us. No parent can exist without children…

We do have senses, skills, abilities, but still use them for ‘scientific’ approach to find Him, to prove Him. Many of us believe, after establishing a nice and comfortable life, eternity will start…
Ironically, noone can decide when to be born, when to pass away…
Foolishly, we live chasing temporary happiness, neverlasting joy. Living for the sake of the moment should have never been turned running for private desires…

Has God changed since the Beginning? Absolutely not. He loves us with every part of his existence. Even we cannot stop loving our children, despite manners, anger, deeds, we cannot help but love them.

Has God changed since the Beginning? Absolutely yes. We became deaf, mute, blind, senseless, we reduced our conscience, we have been selfish, arrogant, proud and mislead. God, however, never stopped looking for ways to reach out, showing, whispering, shouting, asking, begging, helping, crying, sobbing, teaching… He, who is omnipotent, omniscient, ceaselessly wants to be better for us. He does not care our color, our height, our weight, our teeth, hair, strength, power, knowledge. He just wants to love us. He is longing for each and every one of us…

Every human wants to give food, water, shelter to people in need, children in need. If we put aside our manners, anger, selfish desires and deeds, our conscience will speak clearly. Even we, immatured humans, can love people we have never met before, can ‘adopt’ even for a minute children, who were not born to our lineage.

So, what about God?

Whose is God? He does love equally every one of us, always trying to be with us, unchangingly making efforts to help and be with us. All of us. Back, now and then in the history.

So, whose God is He?

The Nature of the Conscience

In the course of history, there have been many religions and religious leaders. Yet those who believed in those religions and in those leaders could not totally control their bodies and deny themselves. They could not liberate the conscience and position it to relate with God on the original basis. We sinful people did not become true olive trees. Instead, we became wild olive trees, with our roots in false love. Man should have had his roots in God’s true love, yet we established roots in Satan’s love. How are we going to solve the problem of being wild olive trees, instead of true ones? This remains an inescapable, extremely crucial task, which we must fulfill.

If you study yourself, you will notice that your conscience knows everything about you. Your conscience is closer to you than are your own parents. It desires to possess eternal love and to be embraced eternally in God’s bosom. When we marry, we separate from our earthly parents, but not from our conscience. The conscience exists with us prior to our birth on earth. It loves us, and its mission is to transform us into eternal sons and daughters of God. In this sense, the conscience does not need a teacher.

Have you ever heard of a Secretary of Education announcing a plan to educate the conscience? If the conscience had gone the original way, we would have known clearly the course we should follow in life. It would have taught us and guided us to return to God’s bosom. On the basis of our conscience, which knows everything about our life, there is a computer in the spirit world that registers everything we do on earth. When you go to the spirit world, you will discover this.

Until today, we did not know that the mission of the conscience is to convert us into unblemished, true sons and daughters of God. Is there anyone here who is convinced that he or she will never die? We all will go to the spirit world someday. When you enter the spirit world, they will immediately know you by your name. They will know about your entire life. They will also know about your ancestors, because the spirit world transcends time and space. We should not bring anything into that world that would stain our conscience. For that reason, know that the conscience is above all other teachers.

There are many distinguished personalities gathered here today Some of you are professors. I can honestly say that there has never been a professor who possessed a teaching superior to that of the conscience. The role of the conscience for a man is the same as that of a compass for a ship.

God’s ideal

As human beings created by God, we were born with the hope of attaining the ideal world. When we say “ideal world,” we should know that the concept of the ideal originates from God. God did not create the world of power, glory or wealth. God has no desire for these. However, it would not be right to say that God has no desires at all. God exists as the embodiment of true love. The motivation for God’s creation is true love, and God’s desired object is a true person. Even God has to have a relationship in order to experience love. True love can be experienced only through a relationship between “a subject and an object.” No isolated being can experience love. Only beings capable of freely giving and receiving are able to engage in loving relationships. God created human beings to become the perfect object of His love, as beings who would freely give and receive love in relationship with God. Human beings are God’s sons and daughters, created with a natural inclination toward true love. God is the True Parent of humankind. He created us as beings who could participate in and inherit His true love. In addition, He created the natural world as a protective environment for humankind. Through the relationship of true love, both God and man would experience the highest form of joy.

God wanted Adam and Eve to grow in purity centered on true love and become true people. God had carefully provided the environment for their biological development and their nourishment. God’s central concern, however, was with their internal character.

Human beings realize the ideal by coming to reflect God’s true love. God had created the power of love to be the most powerful of all internal forces. When, on the heavenly path, human beings experience the power of God’s love, they come to resemble God, becoming one with God and perfecting themselves. For this reason, we may say God’s love is the essence of human happiness, life and ideals.

Adam and Eve were supposed to grow in God’s love to become true human beings, then true husband and wife, and true parents. Men and women become true parents when they become beings of perfected character, inheriting God’s unselfish, unconditional, parental love.

People experience God’s true love in stages through life’s periods of growth. Through their life course, each individual is meant to come to know the love of children, the love of brothers and sisters, the love of husband and wife, and the love of parents. The foundation upon which these four kinds of love and heart can stand is the family. The family is the basis for human love, happiness, life and blood lineage. Similarly, the family of true love is the hope of humankind and the essence of God’s purpose of creation.

The true perfection of the individual, family, society or environment has its root in the realization of true love within a family. People who have become the embodiment of God’s true love cannot disobey God’s will, violate other people, or misuse creation.

Crown of Glory

When I doubt people, I feel pain.
When I judge people, it is unbearable.
When I hate people, there is no value to my existence.

Yet if I believe, I am deceived.
If I love, I am betrayed.
Suffering and grieving tonight, my head in my hands
Am I wrong?

Yes, I am wrong.
Even though we are deceived, still believe.
Though we are betrayed, still forgive.
Love completely even those who hate you.

Wipe your tears away and welcome with a smile
Those who know nothing but deceit
And those who betray without regret.

Oh Master! The pain of loving!
Look at my hands.
Place your hand on my chest.
My heart is bursting, such agony!

But when I loved those who acted against me
I brought victory.
If you have done the same thing,
I will give you the crown of glory.
