The Last Talk Between God and Man

As I Can See

“Who are you?” asked God.

“I’m your son” answered the boy.

“Do I know you?”

“It is me, Father!”

“Where were you, when I was looking for you? I’ve been calling for you for so long…”

“I was here, didn’t you see me?”

“I only saw dust, stain in the light. Do you know my son?”

“I was afraid, scared, I couldn’t say sorry. Is it too late?”

“I don’t know you.”  God was muttering. “I need to think, I knew it could detour, all these efforts and now…” It was like everything has stopped for a moment as God said stunningly, “I have nothing, I’ve lost my family, too…”

“…I don’t know what to say…”, the answer was quavering.

“Leave, we can not talk directly anymore!”, God sounded thunderous. “If you were my son, you would stand right here, and we would discover the world together. You are the son of the enemy of love…

Sacrifice yourself

As I Can See

Human beings were supposed to start their life connected to a center to live for the sake of others. Due to the Fall, however, Human beings couldn’t start from the position which could devote themselves to others but to themselves and related with a selfish thought.

We, who move forward to eternal peace and freedom, should take off the fallen natures which tries to do something for themselves and become persons who can sacrifice themselves for others.

What Human Beings Must Know, Realize and Experience

As I Can See

The Fall took place because God’s thinking and human beings’ thinking were diametrically opposed. Thus, we must cultivate ourselves and reflect upon ourselves. We must reflect upon and recover ourselves. Because human beings have this obligation, countless philosophers and religious people have sought to resolve this issue, without much success. We understand this very well. In other words, who am “I”?

If human beings necessarily live in relationships, then who is the subject of these relationships? If there is a master of our lives, who is it? It is someone about whom we would say, “Only that person can represent my entire being, my thoughts and my life. I cannot live without him.” The day we recognize that person, we will understand God, the unchanging Master, who has been fighting to hold on to us through the long course of history. From that moment, everything will go smoothly. We came…

A man and woman who embrace each other

As I Can See

A girl has an image of a boy whom God loves, and a boy has the image of a girl who is also beloved of God. When they praise or uplift each other. God also rejoices and all things rejoice. The standard of joyfulness depends upon whether they can embrace each other in heart and have the kind of value in which heaven and each together can rejoice. A man and woman who embrace each other are themselves the place where the universe can unite, and are God’s ideal image. This was God’s hope for the original world of creation.

However, because of the fall, the first man and woman cut their relationship with God and with all things. They came to have a self-centered attitude about love, to embrace each other and have a relationship as they wished without the blessing of God. Anyone who thinks this way, even…

God’s Hope for Man

As I Can See

Reverend Sun Myung Moon

Ladies and gentlemen, first of all I would like to express my heartfelt appreciation for your coming tonight. I thank God for this opportunity because I have been looking forward to visiting this city and meeting all of you.

Because we speak different languages, even though I can speak, from your standpoint I am dumb. And from my standpoint, even though you can hear, you are deaf. In order to correct this dumbness and deafness, we need the man standing next to me as my interpreter. However, as you know interpretation from one language to another is not an easy task. So this man beside me really needs your sympathetic understanding.

My topic tonight is “God’s Hope For Man.” This subject is vast in nature and rather complicated in content. I will try my best to stay on the central point of my topic.

If there…

Cain and Abel

The man had intercourse with his wife Eve, and she conceived and gave birth
to Cain. “I have acquired a man with the help of Yahweh”a she said. She gave
birth to a second child, Abel, the brother of Cain. Now Abel became a shepherd
and kept flocks, while Cain tilled the soil. Time passed and Cain brought some
of the produce of the soil as an offering for Yahweh, while Abel for his part
brought the first-born of his flock and some of their fat as well. Yahweh looked
with favor on Abel and his offering. But he did not look with favor on Cain
and his offering, and Cain was very angry and downcast. Yahweh asked
Cain, “Why are you angry and downcast? If you are well disposed, ought you
not to lift up your head? But if you are ill disposed, is not sin at the door like
a crouching beast hungering for you, which you must master?” Cain said to
his brother Abel, “Let us go out”; and while they were in the open country,
Cain set on his brother Abel and killed him.
Yahweh asked Cain, “Where is vour brother Abel?” “I do not know,” he
replied. “Am I my brother’s guardian?” “What have you done?” Yahweh
asked. “Listen to the sound of your brother’s blood, crying out to me from the
ground. Now be accursed and driven from the ground that has opened its
mouth to receive your brother’s blood at your hands. When you till the ground
it shall no longer yield you any of its produce. You shall be a fugitive and a
wanderer over the earth.” Then Cain said to Yahweh, “My punishment is
greater than I can bear. See! Today you drive me from this ground. I must
hide from you, and be a fugitive and a wanderer over the earth. Why, whoever
comes across me will kill me!” “Very well, then,” Yahweh replied, “if anyone
kills Cain, sevenfold vengeance shall be taken for him.” So Yahweh put a mark
on Cain, to prevent whoever might come across him from striking him down.
Cain left the presence of Yahweh and settled in the land of Nod, east of Eden.

Failed Resurrection

I failed my resurrection, many times.
Just now, as it was this night, a long-prepared chance to grow and change for the better side – it’s gone. It’s not the first, I missed my opportunity and pulled someone, a most beloved one, back to the mud of fallen life.

I feel I betrayed God and all the good spirits who started to trust again, believe in me, again, step by step, during the last period, since the last failure. It is always harder and harder for them, to rely on me freely, after each disappointment.

It is easy to say after, just a little, even less than last time was missing for the success. Still, a 99% cannot be offered to Heavenly Father. His realm starts when we fulfill our own part 100%. When I fulfill.

I’m sure, He knows it very well, what a tremendous battle is inside these times, He has already taught me knowledge and wisdom through others. I cannot make excuses. I lost my head, mindset and attitude. I just wanted to be happy, I just wanted everything at once, I just wanted to enjoy and melt into, maybe through the old ways a bit.

Desires are not bad. Passion is not bad. Doing something for me I asking is not bad. Balance. Extreme desires, lust and selfishness are far from God. Out of His ideal. Immature existence with misused knowledge and practice can not belong to the direct realm of Heavenly Father. Being clever after us not enough.

It is true, not God will judge us but ourselves. Now, with clearer mindset, I clearly can point out sine wrongdoings, felt like deadly sins. And if life is with God, then being without Him is death, agony. I pushed Him away, caused Him pain and misused His love, trust.

What can I do?

I said sorry, asked for forgiveness – neither of them could change the feeling of being fallen, again. Like living and seeing the past history, I’m the wrong side, the distance from Heaven, the Heart and Bosom of God is indescribable pain. I paid His love with grief.

We know more about Heavenly Father, ideal world, creation, salvation than any who lived before us. Here, today, I was unable to uphold to basic law of the Universe, the living for the sake of others. I wanted to feel more, knowing ‘I was right’ – and failed. Despite all the techniques and tactics I let my emotions, immature emotions overcome the Word in me.

I know, life will go on, possibly with many other chances to grow and love, maybe to do things better. Yet the pain I caused feels eternal, and doesn’t go away.

Step by step, brick by brick, after each and every prayer and valuable, God-level-resembling deed it can be better, will be better.

I’m sorry, Heavenly Father, I’m truly sorry. I wish I could turn back time, I wish You could trust me, again, soon, now. I wish You could stay and find a place in me to dwell, a spotless, bright, eternal, true part in me.

Please, forgive me, Heavenly Father!
I failed. I want to make it better. Please, try to trust and believe in me, I can do it better, I will try again, and I will make it, I promise You. Please, forgive me!

How to Save the USA and the World

There has been a hidden tension what started to burst out in the USA lately due to the police-shootings, however, we should see the wider perspective: it is a world-wide phenomena.

The once praised democracy failed and the misused western countries (misused by powers what people tended not to care/missed to control) spread the new-age of the historically well-known oppression, exploitation, and enmity. Certainly, again, a minority of people acts in the name of the rest, without even letting them know everything. Oswald Spengler wrote The Decline of the West  almost a century ago, a time when the communism has just started its rapid soaring as an answer for the exploited, unheeded, misused people, an answer for their desperate longing for something better, something true. As it turned out, even that was a poor and abused blueprint of something great what the heartistic people needed…

Right now, the civilization is changing, “Rome” (USA) is collapsing, since no morality and true virtues are in its leadership, the new center of the world is the Pacific Rim, both internally and externally…

Similarly to the Roman Empire, the USA used to be in the position of the one great leader of the world, however, it broke the trust of every part of the world, especially after the fall of the communism.

Contraversially, one of the greatest human achievement, the Constitution of the United States (and the Bill of Rights), the spirit and attendance of the first settlers, the Founding Fathers, and millions of true patriots who searhced their own path to God, are also rooted in the same place. There are millions of beautiful people there and lots of them lost their consciousness towards their own body, diet, spiritual health in exchange for vanities and the promise of veneer happiness. Without true and reforming leaders, who have skills and excel in their relationship with God, lead an exemplary life,too, there is no chance to avoid the apocalyptic end, what is less in the silver screen, more in the real life, in the streets.

The police officers are the very same people, their children attend to the very same schools like others, they go to the same shops and drink the same coffee… without the mask, the facade, the tinhorn shelter of the uniform they are the very same people. They are not the only one living an errant life: think of the doctors in their practice, forgetting millions in the streets in the need of their help; businessmen, loosing their touch to the reality playing their own, pitiful but envied monopoly-game, forgetting millions in the streets and ruining the life of almost everyone; priests, preaching instead of acting in a humble but meaningful way; journalists, discovering and knowing the truth and agendas, yet bending and hiding it for the hope of fame or more viewers-readers; media people, actors, musicians, who claim to share their wealth loudly, yet, forgetting to change their lifestyles or even letting homeless people, families in need to one of their homes in the cold of the winter…

The brothers and sisters, who forgot their true identitiy, we, we are responsible for all of these aching events, sinking back lower than people before the Mosaic laws…

I truly believe, if each and every one of us let himself-herself to resonate, feel, dare to love in its real, God-given meaning, there is hope and chance for the USA, and the rest of the world. This way, the sacrifices won’t be in vain…

 

Have a Blessed Night and a Prosperous Life!

Right Order Of Prayer

The primary thing you have to understand is the relationship between God and yourself. Eventually you can pray for the sake of yourself, but you have to go through the proper sequence. You don’t just throw words away and hope they will be listened to. Not at all. Rather, you have to be consistent and go along with the order of all things. You have to say, “Our Father, my goal is even beyond my family. My goal is saving this country, but before I save this country, my family has to be unified. We are having a problem of unity in our family. So please, God, I will do whatever you want me to do, but please help us establish our family in Your way.” Do you understand? You have to look at God from a very valuable position. You have to see yourself not through your own eyes but through God’s eyes, in the order that God looks at you.

Secondly, we have to understand responsibility and indemnity. If the Fall hadn’t taken place, there would be no purpose in having religion. Everyone would already be living joyously with God. But we cannot do that. We need to fulfill our five percent portion of responsibility. The individual has a certain responsibility to God, the family has a certain responsibility to God, and so on. Step by step, we have to come all the way up to the place where God originally created man to be.

Because of the Fall, Satan came into being. Satan does not want to let us go. In order to shake loose from Satan, we must do something Satan cannot do – that is, pay indemnity. Without paying indemnity, we cannot fulfill our portion of responsibility. Only by fulfilling our responsibility can we reach the world of love. So we have to pay indemnity, separate from Satan, and fulfill our portion of responsibility, in that order. Anyone in the indirect dominion must fulfill his responsibility before he can go up to the direct dominion of God. If we are accompanied by Satan, God certainly cannot accept us. We have to know this clearly or else we cannot go the path.

Heart and Heaven

What kind of place is Heaven? It is where we can take pride in what we prepared during our life on earth, and in our life of attendance. Then what kind of people enters heaven? Is heaven a place for those who simply believe in the Lord and expect to receive blessings or who act only for the sake of receiving blessing? No. Heaven is the destination for those who live preparing their hearts to attend God, as well as those who can leave behind a life of attendance and joyfully move on, even if they were to die while preparing. There is resurrection there. The details of life do not appear there. How we should live from now on is the important question we should reflect upon in our life of attendance.

Heaven is a place we cannot enter without a connection of heart. It is the original nation, the nation of original nature, which can govern everything. It is a nation that cannot be possessed based on some situation, but only by those who have a deep bond of heart. As such, Christianity is, ultimately speaking, is a religion where mutual sentiments are understood, rather than circumstances. The purpose of God’s providence on earth is to make the foundation on which we can sing sharing our hearts beyond sharing circumstances.

What is the Fall? It is not a matter of God not being able to discuss His circumstances, but rather His heart. Coming in search of fallen humanity with the heart of longing to meet His lost sons and daughters, yet not being able to find anyone who could share His heart, God has worked to find such people. That has been the history of salvation and the one sent to find such people is the Savior.

Before desiring heaven, we must desire to know God’s heart; and before desiring to know God’s heart, we must think about how we should conduct our lives. First, have a heart of attendance. Our original nature reveres and yearns for that which is sublime and precious. In spite of the Fall, our original heart wants to attend the sublime and precious heart of God. Therefore, those who have never been able to lead a heartcentered life of attendance have nothing to do with heaven.

To live a life of attendance we need preparation. After passing through a process of preparation, we need to then practice the life of attendance. Our destination, after preparing and practicing a life of attendance, is heaven. The destination of people who have attended with their hearts is heaven. Heaven is the world where we can be proud of our preparation for attendance and the life of attendance, and where we can actually demonstrate our accomplishments. It is our destiny to follow the course that advances toward the world of heavenly purpose.

From the day we were born with fallen lineage until the present day, there has not been even one day when all humankind attended God with a full heart. Before Adam and Eve fell, they grew according to the ideal of creation, but they never attended God based on a relationship of heart.

What is God’s regret? It is that we, who were created to attend Him with our heart, fell into a position where we could not do so, and that God, who should have received heart-centered attendance, was left unattended. God was not anguished because there was nobody who believed in or knew Him. The grief of heaven and earth is that there was nobody who could attend or relate to God in heart.
