God Needs a Circuit

As I Can See

I do know one thing: God needs nothing other than love. He does not need power; He does not need money; He does not need knowledge; He’s got them all. He has the power and the resources and the knowledge to create and maintain the universe. Yet I do know that God has been seeking that single, critical element that can perfect everything else — true love. He has not yet obtained that true love. This is not because of any lack in Himself, but because of the imperfection of man. You cannot consummate love by yourself; love needs a circuit. It can only impart its power when you have someone to love and rely upon. And just like love, happiness and peace require a circuit of give and take between two. It is the same with God. God has been looking for a partnership of love. God needs someone…

Oneness

As I Can See

There are many people living on the earth and many kinds of relationships among them. There are many nations, but there is no true unity among them. There are many people within each nation, but they have not united. You don’t see total unity within your family, and even within yourself there is not total oneness. This is the present reality that we face. No matter where we look, we see that unity is lacking.

Oneness is a difficult goal to achieve. Distrust, disobedience and disharmony surround us. There is both good and evil in our fluctuating, volatile environment.

However, it is undeniable that each person is pursuing something higher than merely staying alive. There is a drive in people’s hearts to pursue their original mind’s goal and reach some ideal state. What is that ultimate destination toward which we all strive?

Let us look at ourselves first. Within each…

God Needs a Circuit

I do know one thing: God needs nothing other than love. He does not need power; He does not need money; He does not need knowledge; He’s got them all. He has the power and the resources and the knowledge to create and maintain the universe. Yet I do know that God has been seeking that single, critical element that can perfect everything else — true love. He has not yet obtained that true love. This is not because of any lack in Himself, but because of the imperfection of man. You cannot consummate love by yourself; love needs a circuit. It can only impart its power when you have someone to love and rely upon. And just like love, happiness and peace require a circuit of give and take between two. It is the same with God. God has been looking for a partnership of love. God needs someone to relate to in love; He wants to be glorified by an object so He can feel joy. That object is man.

What I am relating to you tonight is not merely a theory; it comes directly from my experience. I have had many incredible spiritual encounters. I myself entered into the spirit world. Do you know what you breathe in the spirit world? It is not air. You breathe the atmosphere of love. You breathe love for the rest of your life, for eternity. However, the atmosphere of love we are talking about is an atmosphere of true, pure love.

In the earthly world today there exist many kinds of love. Perverted love, filthy love, dirty love, selfish love – all kinds of love that do not at all resemble the love of God. Yet in the highest spirit world there is only pure love, true love. This is what we call the perfection of love.

Are you sure you will go to the highest heaven of all? I know every one of you feels confident, but this is a very serious question facing humanity.

God created men and women for a reason. In order for a man to perfect his love he needs a woman, and for a woman to perfect her love she needs a man. We need each other. We should remember, though, that we have not yet accomplished the goal of becoming the temples of God. Because of the fall, mankind is now in what we call the fallen state, which is deviated from the original ideal. We need to return to our original state. Once we return we will become the most holy creatures under the sun, beautiful men and women – the perfected temples of God.

The unchanging quality of love

The love between parents and children is closer to the qualification of the truth that is, unchanging and everlasting than the love between husband and wife. And in that love between the parents and children, the love going from the parent to the child is much closer to that quality of truth than the love going from the child to the parent. The love going from the parent to child is the trunk line of love, the central point which does not change from age to age. In order to become a recipient of this unchanging love of the parent, the child should also become a person who can give unchanging love. His love will be manifested in the form of obedience to his parents. If the child has a willing heart of voluntary obedience to his parents, then the parents and child can be united.

Can true love be found through money or organization? No, but we can find true love through obedience to and harmony with our parents. Distrust and division are the opposite of harmony and unity, and make it impossible to create a base of love. The most important truth in this universe is that God is the parent of mankind, and that Adam and Eve were the children of God. This most important relationship did not come alive for humanity. What should happen in order to have that true love come into being? God’s children must become obedient and unite with Him.

There is only one way that children can become one with their parents: in willing obedience to them. Did Adam and Eve obey God? By their disobedience their relationship with God was destroyed. Before anything else, we must restore mankind’s obedience to our parent, God. To restore all the destruction and the fallen actions of mankind a movement of unprecedented obedience to God, one that can bring unity between God and men, must come about. That is a prerequisite to fulfilling the love of God and the love of man. Once you become one with God by obedience, He becomes yours and you become His. God becomes you and you become God through the explosive power of love.

This same principle applies between husband and wife; they should always be saying yes to each other. If a suggestion comes from her husband then the wife should answer yes. If a suggestion comes from his wife, the husband should answer yes. Will that bring them into unity or not? Through that harmony will their love disappear or be intensified? Should men, women, or love be the central point? Love must be the center. Nobody can deny this logic.

Oneness

There are many people living on the earth and many kinds of relationships among them. There are many nations, but there is no true unity among them. There are many people within each nation, but they have not united. You don’t see total unity within your family, and even within yourself there is not total oneness. This is the present reality that we face. No matter where we look, we see that unity is lacking.

Oneness is a difficult goal to achieve. Distrust, disobedience and disharmony surround us. There is both good and evil in our fluctuating, volatile environment.

However, it is undeniable that each person is pursuing something higher than merely staying alive. There is a drive in people’s hearts to pursue their original mind’s goal and reach some ideal state. What is that ultimate destination toward which we all strive?

Let us look at ourselves first. Within each individual there is a battle raging between his mind and his body. Where in this universe can we find something solid and reliable? We depend upon certain things, such as our family and nation, our friends and loved ones, but ultimately we find a certain inability to trust. The self cannot completely rely even on its mind and body. The nation and world are far away from the self; even parents, husband and wife are far away from the self. The basic problem of one’s life can only be solved within oneself. The solution to world harmony and unity must be sought within the self first. That is the closest place to start.

The goal of the world is to move from the present situation of disharmony to a world of harmony and unity. Likewise, the goal of each nation is also harmony and unity. Every different level in the universe is seeking after that point of harmony, which can be established only through the individual. Therefore, each individual is ultimately the key to the harmony and unity of the universe. Without this key, any discussion about unity is just wishful thinking and empty talk.

In order to measure things, we need an established scale, one which was created from an original standard. Likewise, as individuals, we need some original scale to measure ourselves. No matter how proud a person may be of himself, if he does not conform to the true model, he is not within the true standard. This scale should have universal meaning and apply everywhere. Is there such a standard for mankind?

Is it easy to control and discipline yourself? Your mind usually wants to go in a direction different from your body. There is an Oriental saying that a mountain remains forever but the human mind changes from morning to night. If the human mind fluctuates so much, where can we find a point of unity? There can be no single stationary position if everyone is moving around constantly.
