What Crushes You

you should just go and do
because you already know
who can live inside of you

As I Can See

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

You are destined for greatness!

Welcome to 2017, in the year of your growing!

All the wonders are waiting for you this year, every day!

Still don’t know how to be constantly happy, maintain lasting joy, not to see the changes as signs of loss and not to feel being beaten by every single challenges in your life?
Good news is here for you: from now on, in each and every day you can be happier and more content than before!
 
Here are a few ideas how so:

Trust yourself
Your inner voice is a God-given gift, nurture it consciously!
 
Be conscious and self-aware
You might feel down and being challenged, but that’s OK, feelings are normal. Just don’t let them to take over your life and cloud your sight!
 
Have compassion
Towards your environment, closer and farther, known and unfamiliar people, and even to yourself. None of us is a robot, our soul is more important than any external achievement!

Live for the sake of others
Especially when you don’t get any feedbacks, or just negativity. Do you think God has ever had any better? Still, He hasn’t given up on you…
 
Love your life
Instead of focusing the flaws, with a selective attitude, pick the absolute values and keep them in mind, so, you will always have a safe haven throughout your day. It is always good to start with the harmony in the Nature…
 
And please, never forget, You are not alone.
Despite all the circumstances and internal feelings and bleeding, personal desires and commitments, works and excuses, don’t let yourself being isolated, the lack of unity is the death of the human soul. Be a living person rather than a living dead – connect, reach out with prayers, meditations or at least on-line.

Stay connected!
 
Blessings!

Why don’t we talk about love anymore?

This world is broken. It might seem better than in the past, we have better technology, we have great connections, we have the whole world. Looking it closer it is obvious: a glittering only what we adore, a fading reflection of a fake light…

Although, the technology promises a more comfortable and extanded life, in some parts even enhanced, yet, it goes only for those, who would never ever think of those who are not among them. Although, the connections are intertwining – they are just consuming our time giving nothing in return only temporar fulfillment and more often fear, boredom, anger, desperation, envy. Although, it seems we can share the whole planet, yet, we are being shared among each other by some seemingly invisible and untouchable…

All the hatred, arrogance, selfish indulgence, isolation build stronger and stronger impenetrable walls especially in our hearts and minds, limiting our ultimate ability for compassion, care, love.

When have we lost our ways to talk?

When have we lost our ways to share?

Since when are we incapable to live for other without expecting anything in return?

One may say, it has always been like this, abusing, misusing, overtaking, caging, neglecting, pretending – there is nothing to see here…

What is what God says? He sees our potentials, He seeks our heart, He longs for our open arms. He never speaks ill about us, not even when we are the farthest from the Ideal, not even when we are unwillingly or willingly fighting with Him…

Why don’t we talk about love anymore?

It wouldn’t hurt anyone to embrace and uplift, enrich and support with passion. To acknowledge someone might know better, to accept the help what is offered. To listen for the change and act upon our untold promises.

Longing comes first then we can think and analye, shaping our inner self. Our way of thinking changes our way of speaking. As we speak we create an atmosphere and re-create the world around us in a symbolic way. And our actions are based on our speaking.

Why don’t we talk about love anymore?

Talking about love would find us a new realm of love, eventually.

An ideal of love, compassion, sharing.

A conscious, caretaking, devoted, persevering life of Truth.

We Are Bereft of Motivation and Purpose

As I Can See

It is a common saying that men come and go. This applies even to the greatest men and has been so since time immemorial. The movement of history and the morals of heaven continue to apply to us even at this moment, and you must be aware of it. We shall come and go ourselves.

We know very well the reality that we come to this world, struggle, and eventually go somehow. If that is so, what are we here for and where do we go from here? This is the very issue that numerous philosophers or religious men have tried to resolve and failed to. Human history is tainted with the grief of such continuing failure.

We live in a time of tension. You cannot deny that we are walking the inevitable path of life. We are born into the world of our parents, a world we never knew…

Men Are Not the Cause of Things

As I Can See

Everyone on earth wants blessing. Everyone wants their path blessed by some absolute power and wants to follow it. This desire is shared by individuals, organizations, nations, and the world. Men are not the cause of nature. Things do not derive from men.

Who are we? Who is God? He is the Creator. Who is the creator? According to the world of religion, God is our Father, and we are the children of God. However, it is not clear what kind of Father He is. Is He a rented father? Is He the father of our neighbor? Our stepfather? What kind of father is He? If He is not our real parent, is He our parent-in-law? Is the word “Father” right? As long as this fundamental question is not resolved, waiting for a better environment is not a solution. It won’t be resolved for tens of millions of years.

We Are Bereft of Motivation and Purpose

It is a common saying that men come and go. This applies even to the greatest men and has been so since time immemorial. The movement of history and the morals of heaven continue to apply to us even at this moment, and you must be aware of it. We shall come and go ourselves.

We know very well the reality that we come to this world, struggle, and eventually go somehow. If that is so, what are we here for and where do we go from here? This is the very issue that numerous philosophers or religious men have tried to resolve and failed to. Human history is tainted with the grief of such continuing failure.

We live in a time of tension. You cannot deny that we are walking the inevitable path of life. We are born into the world of our parents, a world we never knew. As we get older and weaker, we are destined to die. It is sad but true that we cannot keep our youth forever and avoid aging. Even great men cannot escape from this. Thinking of this, you must have felt the urge to throw your arms in the air in frustration and displeasure at least a couple of times in your life.

Why was I brought into this world? Why do I have to live on? Where am I headed? You should never allow yourself to think that you were born by your own will. We are ignorant of the motivation and purpose of our being. In other words, we were born, live, and die in spite of our wishes. Then what is there to be proud of? We have no control over our birth, our possessions or our death; thus any attempt to show off is tragic. Once born, we are destined to live and then die.

What is the purpose of such a process? You need to think about this once again. The motivation does not come from oneself, therefore, the purpose must not be only for oneself. Who would not wish to be happy and live in glory? Anyone would, but “I” am not in control. It is “I” who wants to be proud and free. It is also “I” who determines the crossroad of God’s heart.

We are always asking for something bigger, a better life and higher worth, even though we have nothing to do with our being in this world. Since this is so, is it for myself or for some purpose relative to myself?

You must know the answer. I dare you to raise your hand and say that it is for myself. When you were born of your parents’ flesh and blood, did you really want it yourself? Although my parents gave birth to me, I am a living body apart from my parents and my fate is not in my parents’ hands. Then who has power over me? When you figure out who the man of power is, that will be the day you can be joyful. Unfortunately, these days people are struggling to overcome this standard. Let’s not forget that we are such people.

Hence, we pursue something bigger in our mind. We also want to realize a connection to a bigger and more amazing world of life, pushing the power of death throughout life. Furthermore, God’s heart of love is making us closer to the eternal world of Heart by going beyond the human world of heart. You may not be able to explain and verify this; however, you are often being led by such feelings. The clearer your conscience, the more you feel that something is urging you to desert this world of contradiction.

Our life is passing regardless. Moving without an objective is such a terrible thing. In the desert, traveling straight means you can go a long way. Unless you move your feet exactly straight, you are bound to wind up making a circle in the long run.

Try rowing a boat on a sea or lake. To go from one point to another, you need to have a triangular frame of mind instead of a straight line. Rowing puts you on a meandering path. Drawing from the rowing experience, “I” am alive and going somewhere; however, I am not sure of the direction.” That is why we have to operate on three points between the starting point and the point of destination. This way you are guaranteed a path close to a straight line. This argument is valid.

God’s ideal

As human beings created by God, we were born with the hope of attaining the ideal world. When we say “ideal world,” we should know that the concept of the ideal originates from God. God did not create the world of power, glory or wealth. God has no desire for these. However, it would not be right to say that God has no desires at all. God exists as the embodiment of true love. The motivation for God’s creation is true love, and God’s desired object is a true person. Even God has to have a relationship in order to experience love. True love can be experienced only through a relationship between “a subject and an object.” No isolated being can experience love. Only beings capable of freely giving and receiving are able to engage in loving relationships. God created human beings to become the perfect object of His love, as beings who would freely give and receive love in relationship with God. Human beings are God’s sons and daughters, created with a natural inclination toward true love. God is the True Parent of humankind. He created us as beings who could participate in and inherit His true love. In addition, He created the natural world as a protective environment for humankind. Through the relationship of true love, both God and man would experience the highest form of joy.

God wanted Adam and Eve to grow in purity centered on true love and become true people. God had carefully provided the environment for their biological development and their nourishment. God’s central concern, however, was with their internal character.

Human beings realize the ideal by coming to reflect God’s true love. God had created the power of love to be the most powerful of all internal forces. When, on the heavenly path, human beings experience the power of God’s love, they come to resemble God, becoming one with God and perfecting themselves. For this reason, we may say God’s love is the essence of human happiness, life and ideals.

Adam and Eve were supposed to grow in God’s love to become true human beings, then true husband and wife, and true parents. Men and women become true parents when they become beings of perfected character, inheriting God’s unselfish, unconditional, parental love.

People experience God’s true love in stages through life’s periods of growth. Through their life course, each individual is meant to come to know the love of children, the love of brothers and sisters, the love of husband and wife, and the love of parents. The foundation upon which these four kinds of love and heart can stand is the family. The family is the basis for human love, happiness, life and blood lineage. Similarly, the family of true love is the hope of humankind and the essence of God’s purpose of creation.

The true perfection of the individual, family, society or environment has its root in the realization of true love within a family. People who have become the embodiment of God’s true love cannot disobey God’s will, violate other people, or misuse creation.

Men Are Not the Cause of Things

Everyone on earth wants blessing. Everyone wants their path blessed by some absolute power and wants to follow it. This desire is shared by individuals, organizations, nations, and the world. Men are not the cause of nature. Things do not derive from men.

Who are we? Who is God? He is the Creator. Who is the creator? According to the world of religion, God is our Father, and we are the children of God. However, it is not clear what kind of Father He is. Is He a rented father? Is He the father of our neighbor? Our stepfather? What kind of father is He? If He is not our real parent, is He our parent-in-law? Is the word “Father” right? As long as this fundamental question is not resolved, waiting for a better environment is not a solution. It won’t be resolved for tens of millions of years.

It is a problem between man and God. Man and God! When you ask if it is true that God is our Father, do you feel that God is your Father? The bodies of my father and mother certainly existed before I did. On the premise that I exist because of my mother and father before me, my mother and father existed first, I exist next. This is the correct formula. It is foolish to assert that I exist without taking my mother and father into account. Why? We human beings are not the first cause of things. We are the second result. Because of this, we have to mention the existence of a mother and father before our own existence. Having this point of view, we must ultimately resolve the problem of God — the origin of the universe. Tracing back beyond your parents and ancestors, you will come to God, won’t you? If you follow this logic, you have to define God before asserting yourself. The Unification Church teaches simply that God exists; He is our Father, and it teaches what our Father is like.

Since men are the result, aim at the starting point of the origin. Of course, it shouldn’t be done blindly. Because God has character, a man of character has an original intellect, emotion, and will-the substantive operation of the conscience. Therefore, the motivation should both exceed the substance of the cause and be absolute. Once getting off to a false start, its direction cannot be corrected.
