Do We Want To Be Molded?

Hyo Jin Moon November 17,1991 Belvedere. New York

Good morning. Today I have chosen a question as my title. The title of my talk today is "Do We Want To Be Molded?"

Do you like to be molded? Do we belong to a certain mold? There are society molds and many different categories of people's behavior. Whether they like them or not, people have certain molds put aside so they can easily and quickly identify certain behaviors and people in general. Unfortunately, throughout the past we were "molded" into an organization disliked by many people.

Somebody gave me a magazine called Christianity Today. It's a monthly journal of religion. They had a review of the book, Inquisition. Apparently the two people who read it and reviewed it were very much impressed by it and the detail that the author revealed. They were both impressed by his development of the case, ultimately stating the injustice of Father's incarceration. These two critics acknowledged that they were impressed with Inquisition.

One of the writers is a person who has criticized us many times in the past. He is a great skeptic who didn't like the church but apparently he has changed his view after reading the book But they both acknowledged that we are enormously unpopular. Why are we enormously unpopular? Certainly when we look at ourselves we understand the value of our work. We understand why we need Principle. We know very clearly and our work benefits the world and society. Everything that we do, everything that Father does is absolutely dedicated to changing the world for the better.

Even if they are not religious, people recognize this is not an ideal world. We want to create an ideal world where there is perfect harmony and peace and everlasting happiness. We have absolutely dedicated our physical resources and human resources to bring about this ideal environment. That is clear. Everyone here recognizes and understands that, so why have we been molded into this un-ideal, very disliked people? That is what I want to address today.

Let's look at the term mold. What does it mean? Someone who is picky about words may not like the word mold. So for those who are choosy with words let's call it matrix. It is something within which something else is developed or originates. That's the definition according to Webster's. When you look at the earth for example, this is a type of mold, isn't it? Within this structure, things originate and develop. What is structure? Structure is the arrangement of elements.

Within this whole 'earth matrix', things come to life and develop and that process is perpetuated as long as the matrix stays true to itself. Heavenly Father had a certain plan and we understand what that plan was. Another mold was introduced into this creation process and that caused an interruption. Heavenly Father wanted only a certain mold to exist. That would have allowed a precise result. He wanted to make sure the matrix He initiated stayed true and didn't lose its integrity. The fall occurred when another mold was introduced into the creation process. Man had to be within a certain mold and grow and develop within that matrix, but Satan provided another matrix which caused man to deviate from the original love matrix intended by God.

From the beginning, man was introduced into surroundings that held the potentially conflictive possibility of becoming two different things. If something is to last forever, there cannot be any other elements which conflict with its existence. You must negate the possibility of introducing a second thing into an environment where you expect a singular manifestation, but from the onset there was conflict introduced which created two different possibilities.

The thing about it is, within this matrix, so many different things exist. just within the environment of the earth, there are so many different things which are generated and become whole. Even within the love matrix, that possibility exists just as we see, on earth. Things can happen. Things come to life in various ways and forms. We all differ in certain things and have unique characters even in respect to creativity.

For instance, let's say three of us are assigned to create something about Father&#
