Nothing is broken in you

nothing is broken in you
nothing has ever been
nothing is wrong with you
nothing has ever been

whenever you feel
incapable
inadequate
or just simply not enough

all the issues
accumulated
impossible
to overcome

it’s not your fault
it has never been
you are still worthy
you are still unique

the ability to love
in an unprecedented way
is only in you
is only in you

the compassion and care
even when you are down
is spark given from God
you are partly like Him

when you are down
release the anger
let go of pain
and resentment

you won’t be empty
light will shine
through the clouds
of dissolving past

new life will grow
in the burnt
and barren land
of your heart

nothing is broken in you
nothing is wrong
nothing is impossible
nothing is like was before

when you realize
how greatly appreciated and loved
by the whole Universe
and God

After You Successfully Survived the Holiday

Dear Friends,

I hope and wish you had a relaxing and enjoyable Christmas, with full of love, care and inner prosperity!

Now, let’s take a look around the world with me!

As we have just celebrated love, is it safe to say the rest of the world could do it, too?

Aside from religious and cultural affiliations, can we really be sure, each and every people of the world, children, elders, siblings, parents could join us in the feast of love, at a festive table?

Have the estranged ones united? Have the broken ones healed? Have the lost ones been mourned? Have the hungers been fed? Have the sick ones got any better? Have the wars ended? Have the inner peace and wisdom overcome the falsehood and enmity? Has this world could stop and become joyous for a mere two days?

I’m not talking about only the farther part of the world, just let’s look around in our families, towns, countries.

It seems, our job hasn’t ended yet.

And what is it exactly?

Getting to know each other, sharing with each other, exchanging among each other, beyond beliefs, cultures, nations and borders. For that, internet can be one of the most efficient and useful tool, a very first step, and a series of steps. So, why not to use it for goodness?

If you feel yourself lagged behind of helping people, feeling less efficient in it, or just simply do not know how, make a commitment to yourself. If you feel so, write it on a piece of paper and post it above your screen. You can also write it in a comment, below.

A commitment to make a really efficient and fruitful year of getting to know each other in the world in a true way, learning beyond beliefs, cultures and borders, sharing truth, light, wisdom, care and love, without expecting anything in return, for the benefit of others, so, you could really be a part of a much better, greater reality in a year, together.

Are you ready to do that?

When you realize your true self…

Heavenly Parent is happy with you, happy for you. He is patient, too.

Finding our true selves is quite a bit of a challenge, takes effort, a lots of it, yet, when you realize your true value you’ll be able to manifest it as a Blessing to the world, immediately.

Take care!

Blessings!

Rich Christians

As I Can See

Warn those who are rich in this world’s goods that they are not to look down
on other people; and not to set their hopes on money, which is untrustworthy,
but on God who, out of his riches, gives us all that we need for our happiness.
Tell them that they are to do good, and be rich in good works, to be generous
and willing to share – this is the way they can save up a good capital sum for
the future if they want to make sure of the only life that is real.

1 Timothy 6:17-19

The Son’s Question

“Daddy, is it true that God is everywhere, in everything?”
“Yes, little son, it is”, I answered.
“Even in the trees and the grass?”, he asked again.
“Yes, it is so”, I said.
And he made the question, “And If I tear a grass, will God die?”

SMM Quotes – 178

Quote

“How do you treat the all things? You must consider them as higher dimensional and holy. In another word, you should view them as the most precious amongst all expensive antiques. You must think you are touching the object which was created by God’s own hands. At the same time, you should long that this holy object should reach and contact “me,” a human being with holiness.

For this end, you must cultivate a mind-set that you are giving it glory, when you touch something. The same holds true for the people you meet and live with. Rather, you must feel even more so when it comes to dealing with people. As God treats a person directly, you must develop the heart to treat the person with the same feeling that God does. This is the question. It is not a problem how the other person would treat you. Real question is how you should treat that person and how you feel in your heart.” – Sun Myung Moon

SMM Quotes – 156

“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.” – Sun Myung Moon

Music and Art: Bridges for Life

Music and Art are expressions of heart and soul and also the key to reach out humanity, resonate together with people around.

Certainly, everything needs to be in accordance with a certain standard.

But does that mean, we need to dance ballet and sing hymns, ode to joy only?

In our characteristics we find a variety, as we are from Heavenly Parent.

In the ideal world -what we can not even really imagine in the lack of knowledge and heart-, we will laugh, we will joy and we will have fun and will have silence in our heart, too.

However, in the era of transformation we still have other feelings, we do not know we will have in Heaven, but all in all, we are like this now.

Can a song be sarcastic, ironic, political, radical, dealing with social issues, harsh and demanding righteousness? Can we laugh on our own circumstances, can we give a hand to others stating we are not from a different planet? Can we lead them through unorthodox way, with less “religious” way?

What is religion? There are many explanations, and many understandings. However, religion aims to guide people back to Heaven, where we all should have been born and where we will be reborn.

And for this, we need to speak the language of the people. We need to know their customs, not to condemn them, but to love them with showing another way.

A newborn baby cannot digest hamburger, spaghetti, pizza, stew or a thanksgiving-turkey.

I am not saying, showing nudity, swearing or cursing is the way. But we need to be honest, we should not stand in a piedestal looking down or something. Our art, our music should reflect our desires, heart, love and care and it must connect to the heart and mind of the people.

Our artistic skills are like teaching, but we are not as much different, and we should not be -in a way-, at all. We are Blessed to know the Truth, we are Blessed to be called by Heaven but we cannot be haughty. We can not deny our ancestors.

We can make a difference, like bridges.

With our skills, talent, endurance this is what we need to do, linking a world we are building and a world we are leaving reachable for everyone. No man leave behind.

We are children of God. We are one family. We are responsible for each other.

We can show our care, love, attitude and perseverance throughout our daily life and with our talent, art, music.

With letting our ownselves enjoying it, accepting our heritage and our new and true life, we can help people to relate to something what they might not even know they are looking for.

Something, we call eternity. Something, we call Heaven.

Enjoy your life in Heavenly Parent!

The Ultimate Destination of Love

There are many sorrowful people around us, and there are many who are not sorrowful. Our families, cities and nations are either sorrowful or they are not. Some are developing and others are not; some people are smiling and others crying.

In this way everyone is different, yet everybody dislikes sorrow and a place of solitude. Everyone also seeks joy, glory and happiness. The same is true with every family, society and even every nation. Everyone tries to avoid sorrow, seeking glory, and for that purpose everyone endures hardships. The same is true with the world. If there is a being who controls the whole, then that being should definitely be the same as human beings. Heavenly Father is definitely the same as human beings.

Love wasn’t meant to be given in a lonely, suffering place but in a free, glorious place. God’s heart is such that He wants to give His utmost love in such a receptive environment.

On earth, is there any human being who can do that? We have to think about it. That utmost love is not to be given only to a certain individual; rather it is to be given to families and to the whole world. This is the essence of love.

The nature of love is such that it is given to two people rather than one person, and it is given to three people rather than two people, and to 10 people. Thus, the force of love reaches toward the whole world rather than toward a certain nation. This is the way love works. Therefore, it is possible for love to flow toward human beings here on earth. The ultimate destination of love should be the greatest of all things. A parent with many children would be able to understand this deep heart. Such a person cannot have an enemy. All human beings have to receive love. If you think that you alone should receive love and not the world, then this way of thinking would be destructive.

God’s desire is not confined to a certain individual. Heaven seeks the whole, hence, the distinction between public life and private live. Public life is for the sake of the whole. Therefore, to serve the expectations of the whole is to lead a public life. Joy cannot exist only for yourself. It would be chased away by the joy of the whole. I think God is that way. Therefore, those who are wise live for the future, not only for the present. Hence, you see the necessity of faith. Once you have faith, hope can exist. Victory should not be confined to the individual level; it should be for the whole.

It is not good to think that you are you and I am I. The truth is that you are me and I am you. We need to attain that level of awareness. Individual victory can only bring forth individual joy. However, if individual victory is dedicated to the whole, then it can belong to the whole. Therefore, individual sacrifice can bring about public victory.

The greater the sacrifice, the greater the value. By following this principle, the world can prosper. Sacrifice for others always accompanies the path of love. We cannot walk that path by any other method. We cannot rejoice as individuals. In this sense, victory cannot exist in religion. Of course w exist as individuals, but we as individuals exist for the sake of our nation and for the sake of the whole world. We must understand that clearly. We as individuals should symbolize the world. Hence, individuals should live for the public.

It is in this way that God’s love expands infinitely. We must not live only for the sake of the Unification Church but for the sake of our nation and for the sake of the world. Although we may have to sacrifice ourselves, we must walk this path. This is the way we as individuals should live. When you see a beautiful sunset, do you want to see it only by yourself? In your truest heart you would want everyone to see such a beautiful thing. So the eternal Kingdom of Heaven cannot exist only within an individual. It can exist only within the whole.
