Whatever you do, do it for God

“Whatever you eat, whatever you drink, whatever you do at all, do it for the glory of God.”

 

1 Corinthians 10:31

Once I Was Able to Love

once
everything was lost
I’ve offered everything
now
the long forgotten
might return

was
I able to love
more than myself
seems
an obvious answer
am I honest

who
is sending the signs
I can pretend but I’m
blind
no-one knew it
just my heart

an inner stone
seemed to be alive
me
being in a sea
are you my destination
still

How to go to Heaven

Compared with spirit world, Earth is but a speck of dust. The spirit world is an eternal world, transcending time and space. If a spirit person commands, “The person who lived in such and such an age with such and such a heart, please come forward”, then that person will appear in an instant. It is a world in which feelings and intuition turn into reality. There are no factories there to produce food. There are no auto-mobile factories. There is nothing like that. To register yourself in spirit world, you need a certificate based upon your life on Earth. How are you going to obtain it? I’m talking about a certificate of life that will let you say: “This is what I became. This is what I did.” You cannot just make your own certificate. First, Satan has to write one for you. After you receive that certificate, you have to receive one from Jesus. Finally, you have to receive a certificate from God. You will need these three certificates. When you go to spirit world, you will find that it is made up of three very large realms. Those who lived for others will go to the highest level. Those who lived for themselves, however, will find themselves on the lowest level. They will find that everyone is opposing them, whereas everyone will welcome those who lived for others. Once you are in spirit world, your parents and spouse cannot help you. The people in the highest levels are those who lived for the sake of others. In the uppermost tiers are those who travelled throughout the world living for others with a heart that expanded their love for their mother and family. With a saintly heart, they always are looking for ways to save the people of the world from evil. The one who lives for himself goes to Hell and the one who lives for others goes to Heaven. People separate into these two worlds at death. So, we must live for the sake of the whole, for the sake of the greater good. Live for the sake of the world, for the sake of God and for the sake of human liberation. Someday competitions will take place to see who can live for the sake of others to a greater degree. In the heavenly world, the person who has lived for the sake of others will go to the higher position. So you can leap to a higher position by living for the person who is higher than you are. Living for that person is the same act as God bringing forth His own object through His creative act. Thus, that person comes to stand as your object partner of love.

 

(from the book: Sermons of Reverend Sun Myung Moon)

What is God’s desire and our desire?

What is God’s desire and our desire? That is to restore the nation which God can claim to be His. In order for us to be able to do that, we must eliminate the evil condition. At all costs, even at the expense of ourselves, we must establish the kingdom of God on earth. We are living for that purpose. The whole earth will be our country. In God’s sight there are no national boundaries. We have to unify the whole world under God’s will. With all nations put together, they will be one people in God. With all those people in cooperation with each other, we are going to build God’s Kingdom on Earth.

 

God’s True Nation
Reverend Sun Myung Moon

I should give the comfort

I should give the comfort
comfort for the world
even if I struggle
even when it hurts

 

being lost in life
torn apart in sea
broken pieces flooding
scrambling help signal

 

who can hear the agony
we all share here on Earth
can we be real siblings
or just being lost as always

 

God is still waiting
when we stand united
having the bonds
everlasting unbroken

How can your love become eternal and unchanging?

How can your love become eternal and unchanging? It is possible because God does not change; the same God who was with Adam and Eve is with you. Even though historically speaking Adam and Eve lived many thousands of years before you, Adam was supposed to have had the father’s role to you in the spirit world since he was supposed to be the dwelling of God Himself. Had this occurred there would have been no generation gap between father and son. The love that you feel and the love that Adam and Eve feel would have been the same emotion of love with no gap or barrier. In that love you can go anywhere, even climb up on top of God. Love brings intimacy and complete oneness; there is no formality in love. Therefore, even though a man becomes President of the United States, he exercises no formality with his wife. They do not bow and give some long greeting every time they meet.

Discovering What Has Been Lost

Discovering

after such a long time

which can be a day

or more by thousand times

 

What has been lost

the Truth inside me

covered in shock

rage and hatred

 

New earthquake in my heart

needed to happen

dirt had piled up

time has come to shovel

 

I was dwelling in a frozen fragment of time

trying not to feel

although my eyes were open wide

I was hiding behind a veil

 

Just not to feel as much

not to be hurt again

not to hurt others

just be me in peace

 

Heaven called me early in my life

and I’ve made my promises

in exchange for my

and my children’s life

 

I had become broken

it’s hard to admit it

for someone

who always wants to fix it

 

Though, I had never stopped

I wasn’t full

I had become a broken wheel

hard to move

 

Only for others

not to care for myself

that was the only way

I was able to accept

 

Now I have to love

myself again

this way to be healed

and be able to heal

 

Discovering

what has been lost

reinventing

to reach even more

SMM Quotes – 231

“True love is a uniting force, and therefore the common point of unity between the mind and body, between men and women, between families, and between friends. Then what is the standard and formula of unification? Love sets the standard. Love is the common place where the subject and object can meet, where the mind and body can meet, where men and women can meet, and where parents and children can meet. God is dwelling at that central point. Because love actually belongs to God, it comes from a place higher than yourself.” – Reverend Sun Myung Moon
