I should cherish

I should cherish
Everything in my life
All the beauties and gifts
Fulfilled flesh-desires
Relentless selfish thoughts
Daydreams of vanity

I should cherish
Everything in my life
Treasure of knowledge
Abundant wisdom
Every gears and gadgets
Health-innovations

I should cherish
Everything in my life
Scheduled meetings
Served food
Sweetened water
Non-seasonal fruits

I should cherish
Everything in my life
Money-bought presents
Passing relationships
Obsolete friends
Tranquil loneliness

I should cherish
Everything in my life
Drought is not here
Hunger is far away
Deserted streets I can walk on
Disillusioned hearts I can play with

I should cherish
Everything in my life
I am the master over myself
Old me

Strong enough barriers
Boundaries closed

As I locked myself
Away from happiness
Truth
Wisdom
Love
Your Lineage

I should cherish You
For everything in my life
For all the beauty and gifts
Inherited from You
Bequeathed Blessing
True Origin

Unchanging Love
Abundant

Was it I

Was it I
Who lost the way

Was it I
Who failed to love truly

Was it I
Who failed to know fully

Was it I
Who ignored You

Was it I
Who blamed it on You

Was it I
Who didn’t say sorry

Was it I
Who denied strongly

Was it I
Who lost the touch

Was it I
Who thought what he was not

Was it I
Who failed to prove

Was it I
Who searched the Truth

Was it I
Who abandoned it

Was it I
Who misused it

Was it I
Who caused You pain

Was it I
Who was in vain

Was it I
Was it me

In the whole history
Unknown and forgotten

Were You looking for me

(from the book: Words of Light)

Where are You, God

Where are You, God

Where have You been

I’m not blaming

Merely hurting

Inside, I thought I felt your pain

It seems to be selfish now

 
Where are You, God

Where have You been

I became blind

In the edge of life

Ignorant faith

And I sealed us away

 
Where are You, God

Where have You been

I excluded You again and again

Yet, when I asked You came

Saved lives of beloved ones

And I pledged, wouldn’t be in vain

 
Where are You, God

Where have You been

I took time, too long

Find a place in me

You had to pure me

In pain

 
Where are You, God

Where have You been

I learnt You’ve never left

And never will

It is on my responsibility

You can help me to live again

 
Where are You, God

Where have You been

I know by now

In me

Working for more space

The world can be saved

Why Does God Bury Himself So Deeply in Our Minds?

Why does God bury Himself so deeply in our minds? Because, in order to go after Him, one must dig down to get to Him and it is such a deep place that no one else is there but oneself and God. You and God are there for the give and take of love; object and subject. Once a subject and object are completely united, they become welded together. Once your sharp, meticulous mind comes to the point of being welded to God, nothing can separate you. At that point, the mind feels totally complete and fulfilled. Consider the plus and minus of the electrical circuit; they long for each other intensely and when they come together, it makes a big spark. But afterwards they are a closed circuit, fulfilled and seeking no more.

If you put yourself in the position of God or Jesus – trusting persons while they betray you, loving persons when they don’t deserve it, wanting to live and care for those persons while they are not qualified – the world will change.Reverend Sun Myung Moon
