The eternal standard of good and evil is defined by God

The eternal standard of good and evil is defined by God. The sharp definition of good and evil existed at the time of His creation, long before evil ever came into being in the Garden of Eden. God’s view of good and evil will never change. God is eternal, His law is eternal, and His definition is eternal and unchanging despite the passage of time.

It is common to look upon human self-centeredness as the basis of evil. Let us examine this perception. All of our human traits originate in God. We recognize that there is some human tendency for selfishness. This is natural because at one time God Himself was self-centred. This fact may surprise you, but you must understand that before God created human beings and the universe, He was all alone, with no one to care for except Himself. However, the very instant that God initiated creation, His full concept of life emerged. God now lives for His counterpart – not for Himself.

“Although Jesus came to Earth as one individual, he was not an average individual. He represented all the created beings of the Universe. He represented the whole truth contained in the creation principles of the created world.” – Reverend Sun Myung Moon

What Crushes You

What crushes you
is not what you’ve left
and not what you’ve been missing in life
not even the dreams you feel can’t be achieved
but the times when you are helpless
and can’t save everyone
not even those who are the most beloved ones
to you

What crushes you
is you
feeling lonely
flooding through space
and wrinkles of time
not knowing what’s happening
without discovering
the truth

What crushes you
is living without God
having those moments
when you are alone
without the umbilical cord

then you should just go and do
because you already know
who can live inside of you

A day-closing prayer for children

My God, My Good God,
My eyes are closing now,
But Yours are open,
Watch me while I’m sleeping!

Forgive me, if I did anything wrong,
I promise, I will be better tomorrow than I was today!
Please, take care of those whom I love
and the ones who love me!

Heavenly Father, I would like to sleep now,
To dream beautiful things, to wake up fresh.
Please, look after our True Parents
and this family!

Thank you

Good Night!

Happiness doesn’t dwell in just one place but shines out to all people

Happiness doesn’t dwell in just one place but shines out to all people. Glory implies prosperity and happiness for everyone, like a light shining out on a new morning where all nature is in harmony and rejoicing together. When the birds on the trees and the animals have been shivering all night, how do they feel when they finally see the dawn breaking? Even though there was heavy snow, as soon as they see the morning light their joy is abundant. All of nature awakes from the darkness and rejoices over that shining light, celebrating the greatness of the morning.

God Never Tempts You

“Never, when you have been tempted, say, “God sent the temptation”; God cannot be tempted to do anything wrong, and he does not tempt anybody. Everyone who is tempted is attracted and seduced by his own wrong desire. Then the desire conceives and gives birth to sin, and when sin is fully grown, it too has a child, and the child is death.”

James 1:13-15

epitaph

haven’t I given
everything to you
haven’t I changed
completely for you

haven’t I dreamt of
a better future with you
haven’t I fought for
a brighter tomorrow

haven’t I believed
in the unity of us
haven’t I acted
upon each promises

haven’t I felt
your touch as eternity
haven’t I been
reborn by it

those times
are gone now
need to evolve
this is goodbye

Powerlessness

what have I done
if I have done
what have I missed
if I have missed

I wasn’t here
where I should have been
I haven’t seen
what should I have seen

now
suffering comes

they are just innocent
to be harmed this way
what have I done
what I should have seen?

just missed the life
their life
who we miss now and tomorrow

accusing myself
can’t see the pain
doubts in everything
and prayers to God
to forgive what I have
and haven’t done

have no words
even my existence is so heavy
how could I endure it
when others suffer

I feel I can’t bear the pain that others suffer
I wish time to turn back
I wish to change the Rules
I wish myself to suffer and ache instead of them
I wish I was True Father to bear this
I wish I was a True Man to bear it
I wish to resemble Him
who suffers the most because of me
because of me
because of me

and still
He lifts me up
embraces
forgives
and forgets
and Loves

turning my powerlessness into capable capacity
to love them again
the world
and the humanity
including…
…me
