Closure

Your Love
Your Absoluteness
Your Heart
And Your Kindness
Have always been closure to me

Your Life
Your True Identity
Your Past
And Suffering
Have always been unknown to me

Your Path
Your Burning Desire
Your Fate
And Your Struggles
Have always been hidden to me

Your Joy
Your Real Happiness
Your Hope
And Your Dreams
Have always been mysterious to me

Yet
I found closure
Holding on it
Bliss
In my life
Has been manifested

I am grateful to You

When You Believe

There can be miracles, when you believe…

Many nights we prayed
With no proof anyone could hear
In our hearts a hope for a song
We barely understood

Now we are not afraid
Although we know there’s much to fear
We were moving mountains
Long before we knew we could, whoa, yes

There can be miracles
When you believe
Though hope is frail
Its hard to kill

Who knows what miracles
You can achieve
When you believe somehow you will
You will when you believe

In this time of fear
When prayer so often proves in vain

Hope seems like the summer bird
Too swiftly flown away
Yet now I’m standing here
My hearts so full, I can’t explain

Seeking faith and speakin’ words
I never thought I’d say
There can be miracles
When you believe (When you believe)

Though hope is frail
Its hard to kill (Mmm)
Who knows what miracles
You can achieve (You can achieve)

When you believe somehow you will
You will when you believe

They don’t always happen when you ask
And its easy to give in to your fears
But when you’re blinded by your pain
Can’t see the way, get through the rain

A small but still, resilient voice
Says hope is very near, oh (Oh)
There can be miracles (Miracles)
When you believe (Boy, when you believe, yeah) (Though hope is frail)

Though hope is frail (Its hard)
Its hard to kill (Hard to kill, oh, yeah)
Who knows what miracles
You can achieve (You can achieve, oh)

When you believe somehow you will (Somehow, somehow, somehow)
Somehow you will (I know, I know, know)
You will when you believe

If You Love Those Who Love You

If You Love Those Who Love You

If You Love Those Who Love You

(from the book: Wisdom for Life)

Be Like Nature – 1

Be like Nature,
persevering and kind,
renewal and restart.

Give always more,
than you receive,
unconditionally and free.

Bend but not break,
when people trample on you,
stand up and grow.

Bear hunger and thirst,
being abandoned and lonely,
keep your harmony.

God is reflected
by your beauty.

Love pervades the entire universe

God is an absolute God, but why is He absolute? It is because He absolutely obeys love. Are you happy to hear that or not? Also, God is omnipresent. There is nowhere that His love does not pervade.

God’s love is more than enough to embrace the universe and it occupies the central position. God is the central being of love who maintains the greatest foundation. When God moves, the small things all have to move together. Everything is contained in one big circle, isn’t it? That’s why it makes sense to say that God embraces the whole world and entire universe.

If God did not exist, the universe would be completely empty. It would feel empty. But because God exists, the universe is completely full. Why? Because there is love. Hence, even when we are alone, the universe is full if we know that God exists. God is everywhere. We come to feel that He is everywhere. Hence, within love we can know the deep inspiration that comes from God’s omnipresence. But when we do not know about God, everything is empty; it is as if nothing exists.

When the subject of love is absent, you feel as if nothing exists, but when the subject of love is present, everything is filled up. We come to the conclusion that it is only when we are full of love that everything becomes full; when we are full of love we can give infinitely and truly.

Give and take allows for the realization and multiplication of our ideal. The world of love transcends distance. The speed of love is such that even light cannot catch up with it. The fastest thing is love; it is also the brightest thing. The most complete thing is love, and that which fills most completely is love.

What is love? Love provides the lubrication and guide rail upon which things can turn. Without love, there is no lubrication. Cars need lubricating oil to be able to move. Everything needs lubrication in order to move. And only love provides lubrication for the highest joy. Since its root is the omnipresent God, it does not disappear.

Love is like a nerve. Just as pulling a strand of hair pulls the entire body, just pulling love pulls the entire universe. Only when love moves will the entire universe turn in harmony.

If there is one subject partner in this universe who can fill every person’s heart, what kind of subject partner would that be? The one absolute center. We need an absolute being who will completely fill any heart with love. This subject partner has to be an infinite and absolute being.

How much love do you think God – who has to fill the hearts of the billions of people today – has? It has to be unconditional. This is why we need the expressions omniscience, omnipotence, and omnipresence. They are the words God needs.

What is the center of religion?

What is the center of religion? It is God. Of course, there are many names for God, but the name does not matter. God cannot be two. The root is one, therefore God is one. When people talk about God, they use different names to refer to Him because each nation has a different language. Yet the Original Being is one.

Where is God’s Heart?

God’s heart is found not only in God’s word but also in all things He created. In heaven and earth, God’s heart is everywhere. This is why we say that there is nowhere that God doesn’t dwell – that is, God is omnipresent. Since God’s heart is found in the things you see, if you want to be in His heart you should have the heart to embrace those things and all that exists in heaven and on earth as yours. This is God’s heart.

A person that reaches the highest point on the religious way is one who belongs within the heart of God. The one whose heart sings eternally even at the sight of a flying bird or a fragrant flower does not dwell among all things of creation but, rather, within God’s heart.

The root cause of religious conflict

The root cause of religious conflict lies in the vagueness of the doctrines of the ultimate reality. The absolute being is only one; there cannot be two or three absolute beings. However, the leaders of each religion claim that only their absolute being is the true God and that other gods are not true gods. This results in each religion having its own absolute being, and fosters further contradictory ideas of the existence of many absolute beings. Since this leads to the conclusion that the gods of all religions are nothing but relative gods, the system of absolute values – that should have been developed through religion based on the doctrine concerning God’s love and truth – still remains relative.

In other words, we conclude that religions to this day have not established an absolute value system to settle the confusion. This inevitably results from the fact that no religion has been able to present the correct explanation about the Absolute Being.

Quote

“If the absolute, eternal, unique and unchanging God exists, we must be able to view the origin of true love, true ideals, true peace and true happiness from a new standpoint centering on such a God. From that point of view, we can secure perspectives of God, life, and material things that are aligned with God’s own viewpoint, and from there finally be able to welcome a world of new peace and new happiness.” – Sun Myung Moon
