Where is the direction

Where is the direction

I feel I’m lost

What is the way

I’ve forgotten

 

I was supposed to win

Every battle

Now I’m drifting

Through the time

 

Sometimes I wish

I knew

How to undo all

I’ve misdone

 

It’s not like that

I’m crying

I’m too stubborn

To admit

 

Where is my game

Playing

To know is all

I’ve ever wanted

 

I wonder if the flowers

Will dry out again

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

All the anger and resentments

As I Can See

Isn’t it strange, when you do your best to love the people closer to you and farther away, and choose to change yourself, surrender your own desires hoping it will bring a brighter day for the world around, suddenly you are trembled upon, torn apart by careless words and others’ selfish deeds, shaking all your beliefs and intentions?

It’s not righteous and you feel it.
It’s destructive, you know it in your bone-marrow.
It’s a poison and you feel you are suffocating.
It’s a trap and you can’t seem to find the end of the maze.

Though emotions should be guided by intellect, it is just the whole situation which makes you powerless. And you come to the point you don’t want to do this any more. You’ve tried your best, your utmost effort, risked everything just for others and the ideal – but the excruciating pain is too much…

SMM Quotes – 232

“Unless words and action are one, they result in evil. If we harmonize on all sides we are balanced. If we don’t harmonize, we lose our spiritual balance and it is almost impossible for us to right ourselves. The same is true of our faith – if we lean to one side we lose harmony and harmony cannot easily be recovered, even with hundreds of thousands of times the effort. So to keep from turning aside from our path, you must be right and true in your words and actions – behaviour and feelings to draw the boundary between gain and loss in your religious life. Even one hundredth of second will make or break your fate.” – Reverend Sun Myung Moon

All the anger and resentments

It’s not righteous and you feel it.

Though emotions should be guided by intellect, it is just the whole situation which makes you powerless. And you come to the point you don’t want to do this any more. You’ve tried your best, your utmost effort, risked everything just for others and the ideal – but the excruciating pain is too much to bear, better to walk away and live without all this nonsense. After all, you are not the messiah…

This is the crossroad, where both sides, goodness and evil are watching you, not saying anything.
It is only up to you to recognize how Heavenly Parent has lived and how He acted throughout the human history, throughout your own life. It is also up to you to stay human of this world and era, embracing the ever changing values and ideas.

No one will judge you.
No one will tell you what to do.
No one will say where to go to.
No one will whisper you wisdoms.

If you have come so far, that means the answers are already in you.

And you can change all the angers and resentments into Blessings for others through sacrifice and care and compassion and love.
And you can also let yourself to be stuck in the mud of the broken hearts.

Everything is up to you.

If you have come so far, you already know the answers.

Everything is up to you.

Daydream

It is over now
the dim shades are gone
it seems just like yesterday
when we fell in love
with each other
and the Nature

Remember
how we were running
just like rivers
seamless flow
in an endless joy
knowing our destiny

Our days
grew into years
sometimes we felt eternity
and all the nights
we were brave
in the uncharted paths

Awaken
that’s what we are now
Broken
our fragments shattered around
Lost
our innocence is gone
Cold
as we see the life without each other

Daydream
merely a hope
manifestation of the deepest love
desperate need
all I can call You
is desire

Where
will we go now
?

(from the completed book: Pray with me)

Should I pray, Should I stay

Should I pray
Should I stay
Should I leave
Should I ask
Should I try
Should I fly
Should I love
Should I trust
Should I dare
Should I dream
Should I say
Should I wait
Should I learn
Should I mourn
Should I reborn
Should I live
to You
here
somewhere
to know
to change
over skies
unconditionally
the utmost
the impossible
the most beautiful
plain-sight hidden truths
everlost chances
my true self
as a true man

Overcoming the Fear of Death

Someday I, too, will die. When we are young, we don’t think much about death. But we become increasingly serious about death as we grow older. This is because death is a gate through which we are inevitably destined to pass. But what happens to us after we die? Do you know why I am talking about death? I talk about death in order to teach the meaning of life. Who really knows the value of life? It is not the person who is going all out to preserve his life. The only person who really knows about life is the one who goes into the valley of death. He confirms the meaning of life as he desperately cries out to Heaven at the crossroads of life and death.

Why do people fear death? It is because they do not know the purpose for which we are born. Those who do not know why we are born do not know why we die. Therefore the first questions philosophers ask are “What is life? Why are we born?” If we think about it, we realize that when we die we are reborn into the midst of God’s love. But in the human world, people cry out, “Oh no, I’m going to die! What am I to do?” They make a big fuss. Do you think that God laughs, “Ho ho ho!” when we die? Or do you think God cries out, “Oh no!” and is overwhelmed with sorrow? The truth is, He is happy. This is because the moment of the physical body’s death is the moment we experience the joy of leaving the finite realm of love in order enter the infinite realm of love. It is the moment of our second birth.

Then is God happier on the day we are born into the physical world, or at that moment we leave our physical body behind? At that moment, we are born a second time into the realm of the infinite expansion of love. We become His new children through death. Of course, God is happier at the second birth. I am telling you this because you need to know that you cannot have a relationship with God unless you are released from the fear of death.
