SMM Quotes – 246

“To become a friend and someone who is loved, one has to understand the other person’s sorrow and pain and comfort them. Only then can one become the other person’s friend. If you connect to someone’s heart and build a relationship of love, then you can move that person as you wish, and you will also do as he wants.” – Reverend Sun Myung Moon

The Mindset Needed to Become Citizens of the Kingdom of Heaven

As I Can See

We who are in the last days, for us who face the day of the judgment, the problem is not the accomplishment, glory or ideals that we have, but seeking the true self, centering on the mind. When the time comes, the internal truth will surely reveal itself, and the internal life and love will manifest on this earth without fail.

Human beings, until now, have been ignorant, unable to distinguish the truth, true life and true love. Because they do not have any other solution, they try to proceed based on their understanding, try to feel things with the senses of life they possess, and to figure things out with the love that they possess, but they have not been successful in making the distinction. Similarly, when truth, life and love appear on earth in the last days, human beings will repeat the same thing. With such methods, the…

The yeast of the Pharisees and Sadducees

As I Can See

The disciples, having crossed to the other shore, had forgotten to take any food, Jesus said to them, “Keep your eyes open, and be on your guard, against the yeast of the Pharisees and Sadducees”. And they said to themselves, “It is because we have not brought any bread”. Jesus knew it, and he said, “Men of little faith, why are talking among yourselves about having no bread? Do you not yet understand? Do you not remember the five loaves for the five thousand and the number of baskets you collected? Or the seven loaves for the four thousand and the number of baskets you collected? How could you fail to understand that I was not talking about bread? What I said was: Beware of the yeast of the Pharisees and Sadducees.” Then they understood that he was telling them to be on their guard, not against the yeast for…

The Mindset Needed to Become Citizens of the Kingdom of Heaven

We who are in the last days, for us who face the day of the judgment, the problem is not the accomplishment, glory or ideals that we have, but seeking the true self, centering on the mind. When the time comes, the internal truth will surely reveal itself, and the internal life and love will manifest on this earth without fail.

Human beings, until now, have been ignorant, unable to distinguish the truth, true life and true love. Because they do not have any other solution, they try to proceed based on their understanding, try to feel things with the senses of life they possess, and to figure things out with the love that they possess, but they have not been successful in making the distinction. Similarly, when truth, life and love appear on earth in the last days, human beings will repeat the same thing. With such methods, the distinction cannot be made. Before you strive to understand the earth, world and universe that you do not know, you must first struggle to fathom your original natures that you have failed to see.

Consequently, you who are in the last days must pour oil on your head and enter the secret chamber to sever all worldly connections and relationships. Based on your heart, you must build a relationship with God. Having made the final resolution on life and death, you must become the children of God who can light the candle of truth and with the most sincere heart say, “I have established, as the eternal center of life, center of truth, and center of love, all these things that cause the continual progress of love.” Without doing this, there is no way for Heaven to make a relationship with us first. This is due to the way of the laws of the universe.

As for the flow of electricity, many of you might think that it flows from the positive end to the negative end, but in reality, it flows from the negative end to the positive end. Because of the way that the principles of the universe are, all things are created to seek God and make a relationship with God. Accordingly, in regards to the severed relationship between God and man, God cannot make the connection from His side first. So, God stands in the position where He has to make a detour and push us from behind.

Although Jesus and the Holy Spirit are at work, they cannot come in front of you and lead you from the front. Because their love is pushing from behind, you must receive that love. Because this is invisible, human beings are not clearly aware of it.

Now the time is approaching the last days, but even when the last days are near, your hearts must not become anxious. At that time, no matter how great your living conditions are and no matter how luxurious and proud a life you might be boasting before the world, you must understand that the agony in heart will increase proportionally.

Then, what must we do in this moment when the last days are approaching? When the center of the whole universe appears, you must make preparations in your hearts to receive him. In other words, you must be able to attend Christ, who is the center and the base of the universe, in your hearts.

If you serve Christ substantially in your hearts, then the feelings that you feel within Christ will become the eternal pillar of life, the eternal bedrock of truth, and the eternal base on which you can life up the signal fire of love. The center of truth is in no other place than inside our hearts.

Is there anyone among you who wants to possess the heart of the Lord? If you are determined to abandon, in one second, your position of which you have been in charge for ten years, and abandon, in one second, all the accomplishments you have spent your lifetime working for, then, in the last days, you can escape the fearful judgment.

Our teacher also does not reside in other place. Heaven does not dwell in other place. Our mind is the teacher of the truth. You must understand that our minds are closer than Jesus.

Although we might not possess anything, when we possess the truth that represents all things in the universe and the historical tradition and live our lives according to that truth, then God will dwell in our minds and rejoice. We will also be delighted, so we must strive heartistically to possess that truth. Unless we do that, we cannot serve God. If you relate to all things from the position of God, then you will enter the realm in which you can feel and experience all the universal life, truth and love.

When you feel this reality, then you will understand the fundamental content of the truth in that realm, understand the content of life, and feel the ideal stimulation of love. What is more, when we receive the gospel that Jesus proclaimed, the truth that Jesus taught, and the life element of Jesus and firmly establish them as the eternal root of our minds, then no matter what kind of universal, evil element infiltrates us, we can chase it out. If you can do that, lamentation and agony will no longer be problems for us. Moreover, even if lamentation and agony remain within us, we can easily overcome them.

Ethical behaviour

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 of each other, we can not let ourselves or each other to stop the flow.

What makes us to initiate a give and take action is the pure desire, love, plan and this is the same when we receive. Obviously, we are not glued into one position, we all change being giver and receiver, harmoniously in an ideal state.

The prime energy for every initiation comes from an eternal source, and that is God. He planted the ability to channel His love, life and lineage, to prosper and multiply, being prosperous in every field of life. However, we forgot this, and we got used to another source, with a different outcome. The battle in our heart, relationships and life, rooted in this contradiction: we feel to do something great, eternal, absolute, but our deeds are relative, self-centered, short-term. No one can be happy, in a true sense, in a life like this.

When we look around in our planet Earth, even back to the history we remember, there was never ever any peaceful time since the dawn of the civilizations…

Should we be hopeless then?

The time we understand the meaning of absolute love, will be the beginning of our journey to a new realm, the life of unchanging, eternal values.

The ethic of a man is acceptable when points, guides towards this direction, supporting day and night.

Let’s think of it, since our thinking will determine our understanding and this way our actions – either to perish us or to build the life of never-existed-always-longed peace, harmony, welfare.

It is hard to talk about God sometimes

A lot of times we hardly can talk about God, Heavenly Parent. Although, we do have The Feeling, The Connection, The Understanding, it is simply impossible to Share…

Sometimes we lay a foundation to be “discredited”, and maybe more often, others around us just nodding to anything we say, keeping ignorance in their mindset, having a dried heart towards anything related to Heaven.

God has been accused since the Fall, and even today we do that. It might happen that personally we do not, however, we are collectively responsible for each other…

Who has been cursed and outcast from people’s life more than Him?

Even without clearly understanding His Heart, we judgementally condemn everything He did and things what He never even had anything to do with. Is He really guilty for Men’s faults, wars, broken marriages, suffering relationships, humiliation, violance, arrogance, abuse, misuse, torture, kidnapping, invading, abandoning? And so on? If so, then where is our own Will, our own portion of responsibility? Where is our maturity?

If we have nothing to do with all these, then are we created as robots? A failure of an experiment? Are we doomed to exist?

So, let’s see all the beauties around us: our children, our spouse, the Nature, the breathe, the pure water, the songbirds, the fragrance of a meadow, the taste of the vegetables and fruits, the love of our pets, the feeling of success, the ability of love, forgive and unite, and so on. Are these really based on us and each other? Are we so perfect to create any of these? If yes, then where is the Peace on Earth we keep telling even in a beauty competition?

Many times it is hard to talk about God, our Heavenly Parent.

Whenever we act in love, with absolute values, it can be a Blessing to others, to the World, and we feel clearer inside.

Love is an action, living for the sake of others. It is as wonderful and magical as the spring breeze, the buds on the trees, the humming bees, the schools of fish, a sound of a melody, a touch of a beloved one, a smile of a child…

Have a Blessed Day!

The Unity of the Spirit World

Most people in society do not know with certainty about the original world where we go after life in this world. They do not know whether there is life after death, or even whether God exists. Eventually, everyone goes to the spirit world. It turns out that the spirit world is a single realm. It is not divided into many countries, as is the physical world. Then, what is it like in the spirit world? We can compare it with the water that serves as the environment for fish. Water is an absolute condition for the fish to live. That doesn’t mean, however, that a fish will spend its entire life in one place. A fish that lives in fresh water cannot spawn if it remains in its river. It has to leave the fresh water and come into contact with salt water in order to lay its eggs. It thus passes through two worlds. In the same way, our mind, part of spirit world, and body, part of the physical world, must be interconnected.

At the beginning of human history, a realm of global unity should have formed in honor of Adam’s birthday, the anniversary of his holy marriage and the anniversary of his death. Then humanity could have united as one people by our sharing in the commemoration of those days. Instead of dividing, humanity could have lived in a single realm. If this had happened, then Adam and Eve’s way of life would have passed down through human history. The culture formed would have endured as long as human beings continued to exist.

The yeast of the Pharisees and Sadducees

The disciples, having crossed to the other shore, had forgotten to take any food, Jesus said to them, “Keep your eyes open, and be on your guard, against the yeast of the Pharisees and Sadducees”. And they said to themselves, “It is because we have not brought any bread”. Jesus knew it, and he said, “Men of little faith, why are talking among yourselves about having no bread? Do you not yet understand? Do you not remember the five loaves for the five thousand and the number of baskets you collected? Or the seven loaves for the four thousand and the number of baskets you collected? How could you fail to understand that I was not talking about bread? What I said was: Beware of the yeast of the Pharisees and Sadducees.” Then they understood that he was telling them to be on their guard, not against the yeast for making bread, but against the teaching of the Pharisees and Sadducees.
