A Spiritual Awakening

What our world needs today to save itself is a spectacular spiritual awakening. The world must be awakened to the reality of God and re-armed with a worldview based on God-affirming principles. This worldview is capable of eliminating the confusion in our value system. Of course, this spiritual reality will manifest itself in political and economic strength and military resolve, but the internal dynamic must be the spiritual foundation of faith in God and true love among human beings.

Based upon such an awakening into higher values, the nature of relationships between nations must be transformed. Until now, the driving force behind economic development has often been the desire for profits. In this way, a great amount of human potential has been unleashed, and remarkable world development has occurred. The time has come, however, for the developed nations to move beyond the profit motive. The principle of unselfish love must be applied on the level of international relationships. The developed nations of the world should feel that they have been blessed by God for the purpose of helping others. They must be willing to sacrifice for the underdeveloped nations of the world. They must give of themselves to free other human beings from misery. If the prosperous nations adopt this attitude, do you think they will be diminished? Do you think they will experience disastrous decline? Not at all. The opposite is true. If these nations do not think in loftier terms than the desire for profits, their prosperity will slip away in spite of their efforts to retain it.

How can anyone be at peace with himself when his fellowman is dying from lack of food, or ravaged by disease, or victimized by the darkness of ignorance? United together, the developed nations can launch a tremendous crusade to overcome the three scourges of humanity: hunger, disease, and ignorance.

After You Successfully Survived the Holiday

Dear Friends,

I hope and wish you had a relaxing and enjoyable Christmas, with full of love, care and inner prosperity!

Now, let’s take a look around the world with me!

As we have just celebrated love, is it safe to say the rest of the world could do it, too?

Aside from religious and cultural affiliations, can we really be sure, each and every people of the world, children, elders, siblings, parents could join us in the feast of love, at a festive table?

Have the estranged ones united? Have the broken ones healed? Have the lost ones been mourned? Have the hungers been fed? Have the sick ones got any better? Have the wars ended? Have the inner peace and wisdom overcome the falsehood and enmity? Has this world could stop and become joyous for a mere two days?

I’m not talking about only the farther part of the world, just let’s look around in our families, towns, countries.

It seems, our job hasn’t ended yet.

And what is it exactly?

Getting to know each other, sharing with each other, exchanging among each other, beyond beliefs, cultures, nations and borders. For that, internet can be one of the most efficient and useful tool, a very first step, and a series of steps. So, why not to use it for goodness?

If you feel yourself lagged behind of helping people, feeling less efficient in it, or just simply do not know how, make a commitment to yourself. If you feel so, write it on a piece of paper and post it above your screen. You can also write it in a comment, below.

A commitment to make a really efficient and fruitful year of getting to know each other in the world in a true way, learning beyond beliefs, cultures and borders, sharing truth, light, wisdom, care and love, without expecting anything in return, for the benefit of others, so, you could really be a part of a much better, greater reality in a year, together.

Are you ready to do that?

SMM Quotes – 200

“We should not worry if we don’t have delicious food, nice clothes or nice house because they are nothing in the spirit world, God already prepared everything for us. Even though we look poor and really without money, don’t focus yourself on it. The spiritual law is very clear. Those who work for God and saving people have material blessing. You can’t be proud of those material possessions nor worldly accomplishments and positions. Just do God’s Will and bring people to God’s homeland.” – Reverend Sun Myung Moon

Faithfulness to the Law is a Condition of God’s Aid

As I Can See

“Be strong and stand firm, for you are the man to give this people possession of the land that I swore to their fathers I should give to them. Only be strong and stand firm and be careful to keep all the Law which my servant Moses laid on you. Never swerve from this to right or left, and then you will be happy in all you do. Have the book of this Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may carefully keep everything that is written in it. Then you will prosper in your dealings, then you will have success. Have I not told you: Be strong and stand firm? Be fearless then, be confident, for go where you will, Yahweh your God is with you.”

Joshua 1:6-9

Prosperous Life

As I Can See

We all long for a safe, peaceful, healthy and interesting, various place to dwell, a world of friendships, tolerance and acceptance. However, the attempts to realize and create these ideals always were lack of mutual agreements and common values.

What are we aiming?

Humans tend to have individualistic viewpoints, even when we claim to stand for others, it is always only certain people, others are out of it, opposed or opposing. Certainly, it is a mere misconcept to believe, unity means being exactly the same.

How can we define the common grounds and the values of individual characters?

First of all, nothing in the Creation is boring, nothing is repeated, not even a leave, grass or animal. It is true for the humanity, too, there have never ever been two exactly same faces, characters and never will be. Natural similarities and diversities occur in and out, only for discovering every…

Ethical behaviour

As I Can See

Ethic seems to be the greatest abstract standard what we tend to put onto our banners whenever we want to have a good reason to elevate our concepts into the pedestal of relative righteousness.

Superiority, what is based on others’ limited appreciation, is nothing else but arrogance, and its existential irritancy naturally blocks the path of mutual understanding, acceptance and daring to say: love.

Although, we do have concepts in every aspects of our lifespan, starting with time and space, purposes and approaches, it is undeniably true, without energy, we cannot be prosperous, vivid, achieving. Since every single being can only exist based on give and take actions when one gives, forgetting it and giving again, the other responds with acceptance and action, both are without expectations to receive anything in return, and this process, generating energy for existence and multiplication is repeated on and on, for the mutual benefit…

On Serving Others

As I Can See

When one friend serves ten friends, they will come to him as the leader in service. Likewise, when one country serves other countries, then that country will be the leader of all other countries. This is not a temporary situation. Eternally they will want that nation to be the leading nation. If you build big schools and houses in Africa and let them live like you live, then how the world will be changed. Then there will be no fighting because they will come and bow before you and respect you. In order for America to live and prosper, there is no other way than to give out, to give aid to foreign countries. Everything goes in cycles. After spring, summer comes; after summer, autumn comes; then winter; then spring; then summer; and then autumn. If you go up, you must come down. Man cannot go up and up and…

SMM Quotes – 180

“As humans we have a common character working within us. We strive for betterment and we pursue goodness. Because these strivings are common to all men, we continually reach out for new horizons, for greater and higher universal character; in other words for something better, some way to progress. Since such character distinctly exists within the common human nucleus, the whole of humanity continually moves itself toward betterment.” – Sun Myung Moon

SMM Quotes – 175

“God set the pattern for the universe. In the ideal existence we live for others. The subject exists for the object and the object exists for the subject. God’s definition of goodness is total giving, total service, and absolute unselfishness. We are to live our lives for others. You live for others and others live for you. God lives for human beings and we live for God. The husband lives for his wife and the wife lives for her husband. This is goodness. And here unity, harmony, and prosperity abound.” – Sun Myung Moon
