God Wishes to Bond with You as Father and Child

We have been calling God only conceptually. We call God, considering Him as only a subject figure in a religion. However, the reality is vastly different. God is the subject of your life and in fact, the subject of your daily life as well as the subject of your ideal. No matter how vast and expansive the subject of your ideal may be, you must be able to experience God as the substantive reality and to analyse Him through your heart in your daily life. If someone realizes the value of this ideal that is connected to God and brags that this ideal can never be exchanged for any valuables on earth, then they can be the one whom God has been seeking for.

The one thing that you should be grateful for is that God lets you call Him Father; and moreover, that God has been continuing to reach out to you, to establish the bond of relationship by which you can attend Him. There is absolutely no greater value than this. God wants to bring back all fallen human beings and to endow them with the greatest value. This means that God wants to restore human beings as sons and daughters, whom He loves so dearly. You must experience this God who visits you with such a heart. You should know this not just as a concept but feel deeply in your bones as a real experience.

You are destined to attend God who comes to you this way. Although you may attend some leaders on earth, they are not the leaders whom you will attend forever. Even though you may find a representative who advocates this idealism on earth, the representative is not one that you should attend forever. Then, who should you attend forever? That is the eternal and infinite Being, God. You must have this conviction. From the beginning to the end, you must live for and attend to God. You must reach this point.

However, in this world, some may be proud of being a son or a daughter of a head of state, while others are proud of being a son or daughter of the president of a well-known company. But, that is not important. That does not last. It disappears later. If there is any position that you can truly be proud of, it is the fact that the Creator who created all things with the ideal of goodness wants to call you His son or daughter and that you can call Him your Father. Is there any other position that is higher than this?

It is said, “God is love.” Surly, God is a God of love. Why do you say, “God is love”? It is because God promises to give the highest position to human beings and has been guiding them toward it. You may call Him, “Father.” But it may be a just word. You are ignorant of the real content of the word. You must learn the real meaning of the word deeply in your heart. You may be calling the Creator who created the universe, the True Father who is in Heaven, “Father.” However, the question is whether or not you have attended Him as True Father.

Honest reflection on yourself will tell you that you have not attended Him in the true sense. God cannot be satisfied if someone just calls out His name. You must clearly know God has visited you with the desire to see re-established the bond between Father and children – thus creating the centre of all substantial beings. Your salvation does not come just by saying a word but rather by becoming the embodiment of the word. The relationship with God is not just the name or word, but rather creating real bonds of relationship. If the relationship is imagined and name only, you cannot have the real relationship.

God to His Child

I won’t be able to tell you

How much I was in love

With each and every thoughts

Even before you came to this world

 

I was the proudest parent

Who made your bed

Safe and perfect

I couldn’t help but to prepare everything ahead

 

I was longing for the day

When you would be born

And I was enjoying the moments

Of waiting with daydreams

 

I couldn’t count the time

Still I can’t

How long it took

For you to come

 

And then there was the moment

When you first inhaled

The soft and rich air

Created for your breath

 

I will never forget

How much you loved to be tickled

Your beautiful eyes

As you came to know the magical Nature

 

I’m still living partly in those times

It helps me in hard days

When there is only the hope left

To make this world better

 

I won’t be able to tell you

How deep is the love I feel

Because it is endless

Because you are far away

 

I wish we were one

Once again

A prayer for God

Dear Father,

You, who has never left me,

never, not even for a second,

who trusted me,

when I was down,

who embraced me,

when I felt alone,

who nurtured me,

when I was starving,

all those years,

You cradled me,

if needed,

You cried for me,

when I was in pain,

You laughed with me,

when I enjoyed the life,

You have Blessed me,

more than once,

You stood beside me,

always,

this prayer is for You.

 

Thank you,

for not giving up on me,

thank you,

for teaching me,

thank you,

for guiding me,

thank you,

for loving me!

 

I have learned,

how cruel the world was with You,

I have learned,

how ignorantly your children abandoned You,

I have learned,

how much You have been working for Your Dream,

I have learned,

how anguishing the path has been.

 

Please, try not be sad any longer,

please, try to see the efforts by us,

please, try to feel our changing heart,

please, try to trust again, in us.

 

We make mistakes,

I have made plenty,

A lot I am still unaware of,

I will do better,

promise to You,

we will do better,

I promise to You.

 

Look at me, look at us,

here we are at last,

Your True Child showed,

the pattern we follow,

and as He hasn’t given up,

we won’t hesitate,

turning our stubbornness,

into perseverance.

 

I pray for You,

as I’m praying now,

please, believe and have faith in us,

just a little bit longer.

As You haven’t given up on us,

we will never retreat,

in loving absolutely,

pursuing the Ideal.

 

And I can tell You this,

even if I’m the last one,

I won’t stop loving You,

with my heart and deeds.

 

Please, Father,

hear this prayer,

please!

 

We will live together, one day!

Why Does God Bury Himself So Deeply in Our Minds?

Why does God bury Himself so deeply in our minds? Because, in order to go after Him, one must dig down to get to Him and it is such a deep place that no one else is there but oneself and God. You and God are there for the give and take of love; object and subject. Once a subject and object are completely united, they become welded together. Once your sharp, meticulous mind comes to the point of being welded to God, nothing can separate you. At that point, the mind feels totally complete and fulfilled. Consider the plus and minus of the electrical circuit; they long for each other intensely and when they come together, it makes a big spark. But afterwards they are a closed circuit, fulfilled and seeking no more.

The real gift

As I Can See

When we deepen our relationship; deepen our eyes, hearts, minds, to see the great gifts that are subtle yet extremely powerful, we become more attuned. Often, the greatest gifts are subtle and not seen. Many external gifts are simply manifestations of internal thankfulness. But it is that internal heart that is the real gift, although we may not be able to “see” it.

Let us say you know God…

As I Can See

Let us say you know God, and you are working according to His Will and you become very intimate with Him. So now you have become His friends. If there is a better place, a better position than friends, then would you want to reach the better place, better position, or would you want to stay as friends? Everyone would want to go up to the higher position than friends. Don’t you think so? (Yes.) So for yourselves, how far you go, how much you know God that becomes the question. And the degree of knowledge of God will differ for everyone. If you have one hundred men, their degree of knowledge of God will differ. So whether or not you know the relationship, and also how close you are with God, among the one hundred, will determine what place you will be the first one, or the fiftieth one…

God wanted His creation to become totally united

As I Can See

God wanted His creation to become totally united. Therefore He made certain that He created upon the foundation of absolute faith, love and obedience. That was God’s aim and target. Everything was focused upon that goal. That was the first concept. The substantial creation is in the position of minus. God’s focus, His mental unity was in the position of plus. This was displayed in His creation from the mineral kingdom, plant kingdom, animal kingdom and humanity. We can find plus and minus relationships within all of these kingdoms. Since God created on the basis of absolute faith, love and obedience, our life must be centered upon this standard also. As plus and minus, we should uphold the absolute standard. Also, in the relationship between the spiritual and physical worlds, this absolute standard of plus and minus should be there.

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…

On Repentance

As I Can See

In general people go to their church and pray, “Please forgive me for I repent for such a such a sin I committed.” However, you rather pray like this, “I dishonored the principle of Heavenly ethic, trampled the sacred relationship between God and human being and violated the relationship between Human and all things of creation. I committed this grave sin that violated all relations of hearts. Please have your way for such a wretched man.” By repenting this way, you may be accepted by Him, and subsequently becoming victorious to be recognized by Heavenly Father, everything will be resolved completely. Heaven definitely visits a person who repents in such way.

Then, what should you do in order to truly repent? First step is for you to set up right direction in your life and put utmost effort to achieve your goals, by repenting daily in your life of faith…
