Building an Ideal Tomorrow

Hyo Jin Moon Belvedere Sunday, November 22nd 1992 Unofficial Notes Speaks (1 hr 10 min)

I watched a TV program where they studied the aging of people. They tested 70 people who had reached quite an old age. The interesting thing they found out was that all these old timers had something in common.

They all had a lot of optimism and were good at dealing with difficulties and losses. All had goals and high ideals as well.

According to this study, we should be the one's who live the longest. We experience a great deal of stress but we know how to deal with it.

Comfort Father There are many issues to addressed. All of you want to live a long life with the one's you love. We must create an environment where Father can be comforted. We must let Father see the reflection of victory in you..

There is a great deal of optimism and hope in our movement.. When we can give that to Father, I know that He will a long time.

How do we go about "Building an Ideal Tomorrow?" We must first of all start with becoming an ideal person ourselves. Speaking of myself, I am trying hard to please Father. Most of the time my efforts do not get recognized and that hurts. I really try my best but my offering is sometimes not received. I do not get the expected response from Father. I feel there is no Give and Take and my heart is broken.

Providential Offering

This hinders my relationship with Father but it is not Father's shortcoming but mine. I do not see things from Father's point of view. I look at the offering as a personal offering and this is wrong. The offering must have a providential meaning.

I tend to look for a personal response and if I do not get it, I am disappointed. But the more I dwell on it, the larger this whole thing becomes. However, I do not let it get out of control. I try to understand Father's heart on a deeper level and see the greater vision of what Father wants of me. Our offerings should advance God's Providence on this earth.

I understand of the importance of ideal Subject and Object relationships but I forget sometimes. When this happens in my relationship with Father the disappointment that comes makes me cry out. I feel rebellious at times and I want to even act on this feeling.

Black and White Issue.

One of the biggest problems of our time is the Black and White Issue. Everyone knows it exists and that it is very dangerous. Not resolving this problem will increase the danger. How can we resolve it? The only way to resolve racial tension is by establishing a new lineage through the Blessing centered on True Parents. This is a foundation satan can not erase.

The Foundation of Substance brings resolution to all problems and it will bring the ideal. The bond based on lineage is irreversible. Can you erase the blood in you? There is no religion that talks about blood lineage. When people of such a religion pass away, the religion will also pass away.

There is no complete and absolute way to resolve man's problems. The only way is through lineage and this is most frightening to satan. As long as you have True Parents and the truth, your family will have the opportunity to change.

A lawyer and his wife, also a lawyer, outside people, who are working with us have everything. However, they are very inspired by the Blessing. There is just no depth in earthly relationships and marriage.

Bigger And Better

No matter what I feel toward Father, the Blessing connection is there. I will always do my best to create harmony. Whatever Father has done thus far, it is True Children's responsibility to make it bigger and better. But we can never be conceited. Father wants you to be the best. We must keep Father's spirit alive, that is the highest offering. If people can see Father in you, that is True Love (in tears).

I try to control my emotions but I can't help it sometimes. I have lost my place now. When I look at the USA, I can see that living here gives you certain freedoms. You could go out after High School and make a comfortable living. This freedom does not exist in other countries.

You Have Much Freedom

Can you imagine a United States of America were children have to love with their parents until they are thirty? In a situation like that, there is no freedom and no friendships can develop. You could only negotiate with your parents because you must follow the rules of the house.

But here in America you have freedom and you can live a very loose and independent life. You are living within the law but still you can make your own rules.

In Korea a 16 year old can not go out and get a job. He is forced to live with his parents and follow the standard of the household. Here you set your own rules and you can do well. You do not want to listen to anyone because you did well on your own. but things are changing now, more and more Americans a
