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

Even if you face lonely periods in your life

Even if you experience lonely time periods when you feel you have no power within, you should not get discouraged. You should know through such periods you could overcome the valleys of your life. A border in the valley is the midpoint of the valley. The larger the valley, the wider is the bottom of the valley. You will experience a lonely time when you alone pass through the expanse of the bottom of the large valley. When you are there, neither God nor Satan can interfere with you. You must pass through it all by yourself. Like a boat has to navigate through sunken rocks in dark night, you must face such a dangerous time. You want to gut it out, but you have no power left in you. Then you will be overcome with the feeling that God has forsaken you. You are so bewildered that you cannot tell if God really even exists.

The question is how can you overcome such a time? You must remind yourself of a past time when you were filled with joy because of the grace and blessings you received from God, as if you were a bee that was intoxicated with nectar. You need to have such experiences. God, who protected me in the past when I faced difficulty is my loving Parent. I am without a doubt God’s child. No matter how curved and contorted the road your travel takes you, in the end God will put you in the position to fulfil the purpose of His love. This is absolutely true, no matter what.

A reason why God lets you go through this process is that He wants you to realize something very important and very significant. For that reason, God gives you this kind of time period. It is not that God is blocking the way so that you must face this lonely period. If you face a period of loneliness, you must overcome the period with faith that is rooted in the conviction that God loves you from your personal standard – that God has been protecting you and encouraging you. In spite of what people may say, you must overcome such a lonely period. You cannot depend on anyone. You must not be discouraged even if you fall into the position where no one recognizes you.

When you are lonely, you must realize that God too must be agonizing, since He has to place you, His loving child, in such a position of loneliness. Do you agree with this? God is in the same position as parents who anguish over their child as they helplessly see their child suffering. Realizing this, as you go through this lonely period, God will be filled with a great desire to love you even more. However, He cannot give you love because it is a time you have to go through alone.

So, you should know as soon as you go through the lonely course, God’s love will reach to you. So, you must go through the period with this faith. You should know once you overcome that, you will definitely receive great blessings. After you experience this several times, you will never doubt God’s Will nor wonder about your destiny even though you are over and over going through a lonely course, or being placed in a lonely position. In this way, you will learn the process for going through a lonely period.

The course of repentance

A true religion teaches the necessity of repentance but how many of you know how to repent so far? Repentance must be an act of tears, not for yourself, but for humanity and for the aching heart of God. Have you experienced that kind of repentance? A repentant heart can say, ‘ ‘Now I realize what a poor and miserable son I have been. I have pierced Your heart over and over, never even realizing that You existed’ my Father. I have broken Your heart and now I come to You and need Your forgiveness.” This is the first repentance.

How do you know that your repentance can be accepted by God? You can see proof in your own resurrection. When your heart has grown in such a way that you totally put yourself on the side of God and in looking at the world shed tears, you know that your tears are no longer for your selfish purpose. Then you know your heart is with God.

Regardless where the heart of God moves, no power under the sun can deter it. It moves straight forward, all the way to the end. As the father, God is ceaselessly going after His own children but He will never tire. When you put yourself totally on the side of God you are like a parent trying to save your dying children. How can you as a parent get tired or bored? You cannot help but go straight after hue inanity, until every soul here on earth is saved. If you feel as their parent, there is no way you can get tired. Our road may be getting tougher and tougher and our tears may come more frequently, but does that mean that we are retreating or giving up the mission? No, that will spur us on even further.

First of all, have you ever cried out before Heaven and Earth, “God, I have been a sinner, I have been the worst kind of criminal in Your sight. Please forgive me”? Have you shed such tears yet? Have you said to God’ “I have no more personal ambition. I only ask for Your mercy upon me”? Have you ever totally given yourself to do God’s will, feeling that if you receive God’s mercy there is nothing you cannot do? This is the first step, the freshman course.

In many cases people look for a convenient God who will smilingly accept everything they are already attached to. Such people want God to come in a very narrow gate. How about you, right now, in your own heart? Have you ever thought about yourself as the worst kind of sinner, who would give up anything to receive God’s mercy and forgiveness? Have you experienced that? By sincerely feeling that repentance, you can liquidate your entire fallen past and disengage yourself from the consequences of the fall.

From your individual tears and misery you can make a gigantic leap from one world to the other, from the human level of tears to the level of God’s tears. You can do this because you can disengage yourself from the iniquity of the past, freeing yourself from all the attachments behind you.

That point is critically important. You have been crying your own tears, but at this point of repentance you can meet the tears of God and be embraced by the merciful, loving God. You are then experiencing the grief and agony of Adam and Eve, but at the same time you are experiencing the suffering heart of God. The two start at one point. You must pass through that experience. Unless you pass through that realm, you will never understand the love of God, no matter what.

Words alone are empty. What you need is to shed so many tears that your eyes swell shut and you cannot bear to open them in the sunlight. We need men who are able to shed the tears of God. Nothing can happen with dry eyes. It is in tears that most of the re-creation process takes place. In that atmosphere alone can the re-making of a new man, society, nation, world and new universe take place. That’s why the declaration is made in the Bible, “Repent, for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand.” By repentance you can come nearer to the kingdom and to union with God.

The most important qualification of God

The most important qualification of God is that He is the common Parent of all mankind. When we speak of mankind, we are speaking of millions of different variations, types and levels of people. Being the Father for all mankind, black, white, yellow, easterners, southerners, men, women, this is not easy. Think about the women’s world: both Eastern and Western, women like to talk a lot. God, as their common Father, has to listen to all their chattering. He decided that His best response to all the talking was simply silence. If He tried to answer back all the conversations, He would have worn out His lips a long time ago!

There are all kinds of people in the world-rich, poor, well-educated, ignorant, tall, short, sick people, suffering people. God must be the Father to all of them. All individuals, whether joyful or suffering, are trying to find some communication with their common parent, God. The Parent has to try to answer each individual and to meet his needs so that all can be satisfied.

SMM Quotes – 220

Quote

“Today, when we worship Jesus as the Lord, what do we have to do? First, we must be able to fathom the heart of Jesus, who bore the responsibility to fulfil the Will of Heaven and the collective responsibility to complete the history of salvation for the universe. We must then proceed to the level of the standard on which Jesus felt, experienced and thought, and stand in the position of a companion who can reciprocate with Jesus directly.” – 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!

God sent Jesus Christ out of love

God sent Jesus Christ out of love, hoping that the people of the world would listen to the new gospel of Jesus Christ, who was turning things upside down and altering their life course. He was hoping they could cling to Jesus Christ. However, humankind then and the numerous people since then have not been able to rightfully welcome and attend him, as their master who can make them look back toward Heaven. Because of that, history has been flowing forth without fulfillment of the purpose of life in which they can proceed looking back toward Heaven. Similarly, you of today also are faced with the destiny to go forth looking back toward Heaven at all times. Because humankind cannot go back toward Heaven by its own ability, God provided the way by sending Jesus Christ, through whom humankind can go back. If humankind had looked in the direction that Jesus looked and walked as Jesus walked, humankind could have accomplished the hope of returning to the bosom of God. You must know for certain that this was the central meaning of why God sent Jesus Christ.

Jesus Who Looks Back On Walking the Path of His Fate

SMM Quotes – 211

“The Father’s love and patience are with the child who is always ready to help Him in any way possible, and who would go anywhere for the sake of the great task to be carried out. He would long to have that son around to take care of His children and great-grandchildren. In that way His love would be multiplied through this person.” – Reverend Sun Myung Moon

The Path of the People Who Have Received the Royal Summons

When we look back at human history, we can know that for 6,000 years, God has been unspeakably sorrowful. As it was for Jesus, the Holy Spirit and our ancestors, there has come a time when we must take on the responsibility on their behalf and liberate God from His grief.

When we look at the corruption of this era, we can understand that before us lies the historical, fateful path of Golgotha on the level of the people, which we must cross over with tears. It is our inescapable fate to walk through this path. It is the will of the dispensation that we leave victorious accomplishments here. When we look at the history of the dispensation, we can fathom the heart of God, Who mourned over humanity in the past, is mourning in the present, and even for the future.

When Israel ostracized Moses, who was responsible for them as a people, Israel broke apart. When Israel ostracized Jesus, who came with the responsibility for the world, Israel became a people who had to wander all around the world. This is a fact of history.

Although our people do not have anything of which to be proud, if we become a pitiful people before the world centering on Heaven, in other words, if this nation stands in a position more miserable than any other nation on behalf of the world, there can be hope here. If we shed sad tears while starving and lamenting for the world in that kind of position, we can come alive again, even from death. This people will lead the world in the future if that takes place.

We must protect the path Jesus walked with a humble attitude. Protecting the path Moses walked, we must climb over the historical hill and bring an end to the inadequate past on behalf of the position of the first Adam and Eve. We must attain again the original ideology of the Creation. We must usher in the day when we become the sons and daughters to which God can relate in joy and receive the blessing and glory of the Father in harmony with all things. Only then can we enter the Kingdom of Heaven. After you overcome all historical sorrows and pass over the hill of sadness, you can finally participate in God’s joy.

The Parenthood of God

What universal attributes can be found in the created world? For one thing, all entities have the attributes of male and female or, in the mineral realm, of positive and negative We see men and women, male and female animals, staminate and pistillate plant life exemplifying this pair system. The world is made in such a way that everything exists and multiplies through the reciprocal relationship between male and female, positive and negative. What does this tell us about God? It tells us that God, who is the cause, embodies not only the essence of masculine nature in His divine personality, but the essence of feminine nature as well.

There is a second duality which all created entities share: everything has an internal character as well as an external form. We see that on every level of existence, consciousness, reason and law shape the behavior of energy. In particular, human beings have a body that consists of cells, and a unique human mind, which enables us to think and feel in a distinctly human way.

Since everything God created has an internal character and external form, He Himself must have internal and external aspects. The external aspect of God is prime energy, which is the cause of all
physical energy in the universe and thus is the cause of all matter. God has used prime energy to create, develop and sustain the cosmos. The design and purpose inherent in the creation manifest the internal aspect of God.

To understand the internal aspect of God, we must look at ourselves, since we, as God’s children, resemble Him the most. The main attributes of the human character are emotion, intellect and will. We value the beauty of nature; we are delighted at the arrival of a newborn baby; we like to express our own creativity. We aspire to become knowledgeable and wise. Our conscience urges us to do good and reject evil; all parents want their children to be better than themselves. We have the capacity for selfless love and the impulse to pursue truth and goodness.

From where could these common qualities and aspirations have come if not from our Creator? God is the source of the values we all cherish: love, truth, beauty and goodness. Thus, God’s power is always guided by reason and lawfulness, above all by love. Heart is the essence of God’s being. Heart is the impulse to love, and it seeks an object to love. God feels joy when He can give and receive love with His beloved. God loves each one of us individually, and rejoices when we return His love and multiply it by loving others.
