“To become a friend and someone who is loved, one has to understand the other person’s sorrow and pain and comfort them. Only then can one become the other person’s friend. If you connect to someone’s heart and build a relationship of love, then you can move that person as you wish, and you will also do as he wants.” – Reverend Sun Myung Moon
“The world has a huge population. Today’s global problems can no longer be thought of as someone else’s problems. They are my problems. The democratic world and the communist world are alike in that they both long for a unified world of peace.
At this point in time, we have come to recognize that human beings by themselves cannot realize this unified world of peace. We cannot hope for peace or one unified world in the true sense of the word merely through human power, human wisdom or human culture.
What is the main difficulty in solving worldwide problems? I think the most important challenge is clearly elucidating the fact of God’s existence. The day that all humanity recognizes clearly that God exists, they will come to understand the path along which He is leading them. The world will then indeed become the peaceful world of God’s ideal.” – Reverend Sun Myung Moon
“Looking at the world situation today, we cannot help feeling disappointment. Although the earnest desire of humanity is freedom, peace and stability, the state of confusion worldwide continues to worsen, and the future of humanity indeed looks grim. In spite of the ceaseless efforts of nations’ leaders, the problems of the world are getting more complex and hard to resolve. Democracy, communism, religion and philosophy have all proved themselves to be totally helpless in the face of these world problems. The problem lies in a lack of understanding of God’s will. Human history is the history of God’s providence, and without understanding that providence we will be unable to deal with the world’s problems.” – Reverend Sun Myung Moon
“The beginning and the end of the truth must be the same. Today, we do not need religion. A person who can connect his heart directly to Heaven and Earth would be enough for that purpose. Peace comes from the heart too. When my mind expresses happiness, the vast expanse of the universe becomes my bosom friend and runs wild within the world of my mind.” – Reverend Sun Myung Moon
“To shorten the way to heaven, the Messiah, a specific people or individual must take responsibility through self-sacrifice. Many saints have given up their lives for this cause. The rise and fall of many nations was to fill the valleys and level the hills. History to this day has consisted of people making themselves merry, thus it is a history of ups and downs. It goes on a spree, rising and falling. Equality like that of the present was established in this manner. Equality is peace.” – Reverend Sun Myung Moon
“In the Last Days, there will be no way to survive if the direction of history is not reversed. To change its direction, we have to understand in what direction it is moving now. Since history has drawn to an end through the sacrifices of a third party, peace will definitely not come to the world if man does things in the same way as he has until now.” – Reverend Sun Myung Moon
“A person who fights and bleeds profusely in the harsh process of building a new kingdom of peace, a Heaven of freedom, will not perish. The blood he sheds is not the blood of death, but a source of life. What he has achieved in this manner is the base we have to reach, embody in our lives and bequeath to our future generations. It is a painful reality.
“Oh, Heavenly Father! Your divine Will, which You have always wanted to take pride in, centering on the ideal of creation, has reached fruition in me. The man You have appointed has achieved union with the internal heart, which You have eternally wanted to take pride in before the world.”
You have to pray like this before Heaven and crave for the day of moving into the heavenly kingdom of liberty and peace where God can rejoice.” – Reverend Sun Myung Moon
“You must lead your family and live for your nation and the world. Spanning the ages of the individual, family, clan, tribe, society and nation, you have to play the role of showing the world’s peoples and nations the right direction based on my experience. Having fulfilled this, you must be able to serve God from a mutually inseparable position. Only then will the spirit world and the physical world become the unified world of peace. For the first time in human history, the guide will establish himself in the position of the eternal leader of the historical age and be awarded the glorious official commendation of the heavenly world. You have to know this indisputable fact.” – Reverend Sun Myung Moon
“If you become the person who can act in place of the ideology of the universal Kingdom of Heaven to unfold the movement of God’s love, life and truth, then the world of peace will be built on this earth. Therefore, your own parents are not the only parents, your own siblings are not the only siblings and your own children are not the only children. When you become the person who can regard all people as your parents, siblings and children, when you look upon the many people who are suffering in the world of death, you will not be able to relate with them without tears. When you look at your siblings or someone younger, you will feel a strong sense of responsibility to save them, and with tears you will make every effort to carry it out. If you truly become this kind of person, then the Kingdom of Heaven will be constructed on this earth centering on you.” – Reverend Sun Myung Moon
“If a true individual comes who will eliminate this world’s sorrow, liberate Heavenly Father’s sorrow, and bring forth an ideology capable of establishing a peaceful nation on this earth, that individual will have to pass through every difficulty and experience desperation, starting from the sorrow of personal tribulation, all the way to the sorrow of the tribulations of humanity. Furthermore, he would have to delve into the whole sorrowful and desperate heart of Heaven to come out with something that can resolve it. If that is not achieved, the world of humanity cannot push aside the sorrowful and miserable history to establish the world of peace, the world of happiness, and the garden of freedom inviolable by sorrow.” – Reverend Sun Myung Moon
