The Tradition of Loving and Being Loved

As I Can See

It is natural and principled for you to love God in the same way that He loves you. So when you long for God as the vertical center of your life, and when you are loved as His son or daughter, then a tradition of love can begin. You cannot make a start toward individual perfection unless you establish this tradition. The family is composed of individuals, so first of all you must be loved by God as an individual. But not only that, you should welcome God as your Parent, and return with filial piety the love that you received from Him. You have not even reached the starting point of individual perfection until the reciprocal love of parent and child is established on the vertical position.

You speak about it often, but what is individual perfection? It is to establish the absolute vertical parent and child relationship through…

Conscience: Teacher and Parent

As I Can See

Every human being, throughout his life, has a most precious teacher within himself. Nevertheless that teacher has been mistreated, trampled upon, and abused. That teacher is the human conscience. Your conscience always speaks out for your own benefit, trying to connect you to true love. Like a parent, your conscience urges you to be a good, unselfish individual, and guides you to do the will of God. But within each person there is also a rebel who always goes against the conscience. That rebel is the. physical body.

The body has trampled and abused the conscience miserably. When one becomes aware of this, can he take the side of the body which has been the enemy of his own conscience, and which has greatly damaged his own life and personality?

Your conscience should be your constant internal teacher and parent, leading you to complete unity with the ultimate parents of…

Human nature

As I Can See

Human nature is such that we always desire a fuller relationship of love; we always want to go deeper and deeper into love. It is important to know how we can be harmonized with the essence of love in the universe. First of all, we must think of God as our subject. Each person is always in the position of object to God. What is the subject/object relationship centered upon? It is centered on love. Thus the essential relationship between God and man is that of the subject and object of love. The parent/child relationship is the essential, universal relationship.

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.

The Tradition of Loving and Being Loved

It is natural and principled for you to love God in the same way that He loves you. So when you long for God as the vertical center of your life, and when you are loved as His son or daughter, then a tradition of love can begin. You cannot make a start toward individual perfection unless you establish this tradition. The family is composed of individuals, so first of all you must be loved by God as an individual. But not only that, you should welcome God as your Parent, and return with filial piety the love that you received from Him. You have not even reached the starting point of individual perfection until the reciprocal love of parent and child is established on the vertical position.

You speak about it often, but what is individual perfection? It is to establish the absolute vertical parent and child relationship through faith. You as a child will also come to love God in the same way as God loves you. God and child are inseparable since love is established in such a reciprocal relationship.

You should not cry for yourself, cry for God. You should do things in order to establish the harmonious subject-object relationship and a unified sphere. You enlarge the sphere of your activities in order to strengthen this subject-object relationship. By doing so, God’s dominion is expanded into a larger sphere of His dominion.

When you come face to face with your husband or your wife, you enlarge your sphere of dominion to the level of the family. A man for a woman, a woman for a man – this relationship of a man and a woman is not simply a relationship for their own selves. The family is the central sphere of heart where the members are horizontally strongly connected, centered upon God. In the relationship of husband and wife, a wife can love her husband, whom God loves, the same as God loves him. A husband can love his wife, whom God loves, the same as God loves her. When they can fully embrace this relationship of loving and being loved centered upon God, they become one.

God emphasizes and values any quality that resembles Him

Whenever God visited humanity who have committed countless sins and transgressions up until today, He emphasized and valued any quality that resembled Him – even a quality only a little greater than the numerous evil qualities of men – so that He could visit His children, beseechingly and desperately, based on this quality and on the original standard. This is the heart of parents.

Today, you stand in the position that you should move forward to reach the heart of parents with missions for your race and nation as well as for the world. When you look at your race, your race stands in the orphan’s position, where he is screaming and crying looking for his lost parents. When you look at one nation, you find it a nation who has lost its parents. When you look at the world, you must have a heart to recognize it as a world that has lost its parents. With is heart, you must prepare yourself to move forward to a new base, by reconnecting with Heaven. Jesus came to earth in order to do just this.

Conscience: Teacher and Parent

Every human being, throughout his life, has a most precious teacher within himself. Nevertheless that teacher has been mistreated, trampled upon, and abused. That teacher is the human conscience. Your conscience always speaks out for your own benefit, trying to connect you to true love. Like a parent, your conscience urges you to be a good, unselfish individual, and guides you to do the will of God. But within each person there is also a rebel who always goes against the conscience. That rebel is the. physical body.

The body has trampled and abused the conscience miserably. When one becomes aware of this, can he take the side of the body which has been the enemy of his own conscience, and which has greatly damaged his own life and personality?

Your conscience should be your constant internal teacher and parent, leading you to complete unity with the ultimate parents of mankind, God. The conscience, then, is the agent of God within you, and may even be called a “second God.” Do you think you should be sympathetic and protective of your body, the enemy of the conscience? Or do you think you should control and confine your body and vindicate your conscience? Your body only goes after carnal desire. When it is hungry, it steals and satisfies itself. It always seeks for comfort, and wants to take advantage of others. The body has its own realm. To conquer the realm of the body is an awesome responsibility which every person must undertake. When this is achieved, the mind as the vertical self and the body as the horizontal self are completely harmonized into oneness, and a person reaches perfection, united in love with God for eternity.

Whose parent is He?

So, whose parent is He?

Is He the parent of mine, yours, or whose, specifically?

In the whole known and recently rediscovered human history, He was always told, written, expected to be the parent of some kind of denominations, certain ‘prophetic’ religious groups, races, nations. He was declared as the ‘supporter’ of selfishness backed ‘public desires’, He was named and titled in several ways and positions. However, new and new explanations, revelations were found and revealed, suggesting a misunderstood previous ‘version’ of Him.
Although, He might never changed, we, humans always wanted to see Him as our aims required, some of us silently, some of us conquering the world.

Is the African tale of Fidi Mukulu differs so much from the oriental creation-stories?
Is anyone still can believe, that Muslims, Jews, Christians have different Creator?

Putting aside the self-inducted, historical, political, economical, media explanations, what are always explanations, is there any major differences?
God can have vast amount of names, He will still remain God. Heavenly Parent is our original Heavenly Parent, constantly trying to reach out for each and every one of us. No parent can exist without children…

We do have senses, skills, abilities, but still use them for ‘scientific’ approach to find Him, to prove Him. Many of us believe, after establishing a nice and comfortable life, eternity will start…
Ironically, noone can decide when to be born, when to pass away…
Foolishly, we live chasing temporary happiness, neverlasting joy. Living for the sake of the moment should have never been turned running for private desires…

Has God changed since the Beginning? Absolutely not. He loves us with every part of his existence. Even we cannot stop loving our children, despite manners, anger, deeds, we cannot help but love them.

Has God changed since the Beginning? Absolutely yes. We became deaf, mute, blind, senseless, we reduced our conscience, we have been selfish, arrogant, proud and mislead. God, however, never stopped looking for ways to reach out, showing, whispering, shouting, asking, begging, helping, crying, sobbing, teaching… He, who is omnipotent, omniscient, ceaselessly wants to be better for us. He does not care our color, our height, our weight, our teeth, hair, strength, power, knowledge. He just wants to love us. He is longing for each and every one of us…

Every human wants to give food, water, shelter to people in need, children in need. If we put aside our manners, anger, selfish desires and deeds, our conscience will speak clearly. Even we, immatured humans, can love people we have never met before, can ‘adopt’ even for a minute children, who were not born to our lineage.

So, what about God?

Whose is God? He does love equally every one of us, always trying to be with us, unchangingly making efforts to help and be with us. All of us. Back, now and then in the history.

So, whose God is He?
