Quote

“A man and a woman can be centred on true love for more that a thousand years and beyond, yet the energy of their love never drops. True love operates upon the principle that the more you love, the greater your desire to give becomes. When this love fills up the universe, all created beings find their eternal place of existence.” – Reverend Sun Myung Moon

“Everything must be judged according to the standard of true love. Conflict within a family does not occur because there is not enough food to eat, but rather from problems of love.” – Reverend Sun Myung Moon

What did I get to know of God?

What did I get to know of God today?
I keep thinking. Actually, I have been thinking of it all day, I’m thinking of Him all the time…
There are obvious things. He is not one of them. We like to believe He is there all the time, but it just not like so. It does not work this way.

It might sound weird or heretic but just think of that: Heavenly Parent is an Absolute Being. He can not be corrupted, His dedication, His compassion, His care, His love will always be there towards us. He is unchanging and uncompromising. He never backs even if He has to make changes in order to accomplish His goals. He never gives up, He never quits. He can’t stop living for us, without expecting anything in return – out of Absolute Love.

What about us?

I can tell, I can waiver, I can back up, and time to time can’t find the best way to accomplish the goals. I can see how easily I can be challenged through my trigger points: I can’t stand selfishness and hard to cope with obnoxious people, arrogance and carelessness. Laziness. Quitters. People who can’t control their emotions. I can’t even cope with myself when I can’t control my emotions. And I can never accept and sorry to say tolerate when celebrations are to have fun and feel good without thinking of the majority of the world who can’t have as good as we have – out of the greed of the people…
So, no, God, our Heavenly Parent is not obvious in our relative life.
There is only one way: His way. It is unique for each and every one of us.
Nobody goes to Heaven without each other.
Blessings!

12 Days with God – Day Eleven

Join me for 12 days to spend more time with God, our Heavenly Parent.

This is the eleventh day.

You did not choose me,
no, I chose you;
and I commissioned you
to go out and to bear fruit,
fruit that will last;
and then the Father will give you
anything you ask him in my name.
What I command you
is to love one another.
John 15:16-17

 

This is the day of realization.

Days have melted into one. Frontiers and shadows have diminished. Barriers have become less unpenetrable. My personal limitations have decreased. Now, I only find hard to use the right words to share the heart of joy, the mind of purpose with You, Father, with You, who is here now.

When I started this path, I did have the ideas and concepts how and what to do. How narrow understanding it was trying to fit Your ideas and concepts into my thought boxes… I’m smiling on it now, and I know, You are smiling, too: growth, maturity – fruits of Your effort and heart are harvested, as You have been loving silently but with full of Your strength. The only way how we, humans could survive our mournful history is the care, mindset, attitude, ceaseless willingness You have been pouring, Your Blessings on each and every one of us. This is how I am alive, this is how I am healed, this is how I can find new strength and keep going to do better after the failures I make. You have never focused on the flaws in us, You have never pointed a finger on us, You have never excluded us from Your life. It was us, it was me who couldn’t help himself. By now, it is over, You have raised me up, You have exalted me…

All we think of love is mostly a relative, self-confined presumption we eagerly tend to reason and boost about our reasonings and proofs, achievements. This is not who You are, this is not the way to live with You, this is not the life of righteousness, this is not the good foundation of love.

You are absolute.

Your are not our concept, You are not our idea. You can not be bended to fit into the frames of our convenient notions. Instead of looking for one part of You, we ought to perceive You completely, through the Nature, the original Creation. How thoughtfully, profoundly it was shaped! How completely You have invested Yourself into it – for us! For me, too. And for my children, too.

This it the way with everything then: immersing fully into the creation of our life for others, recreating ourselves this way, gaining new life, experiencing the heart and mind of the abundant, utmost love. This is the only way to live.This is the secret of living forever. It has been hidden in plain sight.

I realize it now.

I will apply it for everything, for every relationship in life. My wife, my children, friends and disciples, people in the world, the creation – through this I can give You something, the very thing You have been giving to me, to us: Absolute Love.

 

Thank You, Father, Thank You!

Your son,

The true family is the fundamental nucleus of a peaceful world

It is in the family that our pure true love grows and is perfected. The true family is the initial stage on which the different types of love, between true parents, true husbands and wives, true children and true brothers and sisters are put into practice and jointly grow to fruition.

The true family is the fundamental nucleus of a peaceful world, for it is here that we learn about God’s true love through the love of true parents; it is here that we are trained by means of the true love of true brothers and sisters to acquire a universal love for the true nation, true world and all humanity.

Not only that, but the true family is the basic unit of historical linkage, for it is through true love being handed down from parent to child that the generations of the past, present and future are linked together in a consistent value system.

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)

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.

Quote

“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.” – Sun Myung Moon
