Hyo Jin Moon Belvedere Sunday, October 11th 1992 Unofficial Notes Speaks (2:00 hrs)
What do you want me to talk about, anything in particular? How many people were here two Sundays ago. What did I talk about then? About the human condition, yes, but what am I getting at?
The fulfillment of responsibility and establishing a direct relationship with True Parents. Father has said to us that He had one dream, He yearned to see His Children grow up.
Parents Biggest Influence
What does this mean? There are many different standards in the World. You are influenced and molded by many different factors in life. Those who think that they are not, really are out of touch. The outside people usually have a standard that is centered on money, power or knowledge. Most peoples lives are defined by a financial tradition. They are also influenced by their national, cultural and ethical standards of the nation. However, the biggest influence in a persons life are the parents. When I see children, I can understand the perspectives and standards of their Parents.
But what about True Father? What does it mean from Father's perspective to have a yearning to see His children grow up. Does Father want me to grow up to make a lot of money, or get a great education and gain a powerful position? No! My life and being is defined in relationship to True Parents. True Parents expectations for me are the same as God's.
He wants me to grow up to be a mature and responsible person. This is the content of Divine Principle, Chapter One. Father would want me to perpetuate the perspectives, traditions and values that He has set in His life.
True Parents have certain perspectives, traditions and values. What is it? Do you know? It is the True Love perspective and the Divine Principle standard. The perspective guides the standard. Sometimes the things that Father does look a little strange to us, but Father does things only for the sake of True Love.
It is important to have the right perspective and standard. We Unification Members believe in an absolute and infinite standard. We believe that all can attain it. Thus we must look at everyone with a True Love perspective.
God needs an object on an equal level to be able to fulfill His ideal. Can you establish an equal relationship with and ant? How about a dog? A dog is better because you can train him. You can't train an ant to roll over. Dogs are called man's best friends, not ants.
How many here are blessed? How many would rather establish a deep relationship with a dog rather then your spouse? Be honest now! Satisfaction and fulfillment can only come if you have an object that is on an equal level with you. Man has unlimited potential and he can achieve anything. Mozart was considered a crazy guy by his contemporaries. His music was too far out at that time but now people love his music.
Be Like True Parents
The industrial age started in the 19th century. In the last 60 years we advanced so quickly , we even put a man on the Moon. We have infinite potential. The sky is no longer the limit. You are Sons and Daughters of infinite potential. But what does the fallen world tell you? You have no value and you can't do anything. It always pulls you down. Humanity has a definition of constrained due to fallen nature.
But God always uplifts and builds up. You came out of the fallen world and follow True Parents. They have now changed your perspective. Your standard, traditions and perspectives are becoming more and more like True Parents'.
You have to be able to show God to people through your own way of life. At Jesus time the people asked Him "show us God". Jesus answered them "If you have seen me you have seen God. I and the Father are one." You have to be able to make the same claim.
DP Book Alone Is Not Enough
True Parents are the living substantial reality of God. Through True Parents you can experience the substantial reality of God's life and standard. The Divine Principle book alone is just not enough. There is too much room for interpretation. Look at the New Testament. Christians have no tradition and example to follow. Jesus' life was too short and He could not establish a family. Humanity needs a clear tradition to follow.
Human history is a history of war and conflict because there has not been a parental position and tradition. The substantiation of the True Parents is the greatest victory of God and humanity. Now we can put our house in order.
You are judged based on what expectations God has for you. How do we resolve conflict on every level? By being True Sons and Daughters. Live for the sake of others and love them as God and True Parents love you. Then the Kingdom of God can come.
America is very selfish. It will only help another nation if it has some agenda. However, the parental heart is to give freely without expecting anything in return.
You spent much time with your spouse and children. But you should spend your time for the sake of the children of True Parents. The mission of the Second Generation is to establish substantially the standard of God here on earth. Even here in our movement we have different standards. You don't get along with your brothers and sisters and do not want to work with this or that person.
What Do You Pray About?
You can not separate Father's Family! You must have a concept of Family first before you can have a perspective of an individual.
What do you pray about? This is very important. Do you call out for help? This will only perpetuate individuality and selfishness.
Children see the parents as one, not two. The original mind sees the purpose of the whole only. Many of you are struggling with individuality. If you devalue True Family, you devalue yourself. They are the standard you are following. Husband and wife must live according to the standard of God with absolute faith.
What was your reasoning for getting blessed? You were lonely and needed something or someone? The true reason should be to become and ideal man or woman first and then get blessed. That type of attitude is needed. If you did not have this attitude, the only way to correct this is to follow True Parents unconditionally.
Purity Of Utmost Importance
I am very upset with the moral standard of the Western members. The Blessed Couples are the building block of the Kingdom of God. You must pass on the right legacy. You will be remembered by the failure of your children. The purity of the Blessed Couples is of utmost importance.
Hyun Jin asked a twelve year old if he liked girls. He does not get an answer so He assumes "Probably not!" There is not much to like about girls at that time. You can't really play with them and they can't throw a football. Boys do not care how their hair or clothing looks.
On the other hand girls are very particular. Their hair is neat and the clothing is color coordinated. Boys and girls do not have much in common with each other at that time and there is nothing to like about the other sex.
But Father always matches opposites, even people who belonged to enemy countries before. To be successful in your Blessing you must invest much in your spouse to create an ideal. Investing means to raise your spouse up to become an ideal person and fulfill the infinite potential, inheriting the standard and tradition of True Parents. When a wife asked her husband to buy her a dress, that really lowers the value and purpose of the husband.
Blessed children must push their parents to pursue the standard of God and live it. Who of the sisters are blessed? Those who are, raise your hands if you will push your husbands to become ideal sons, brothers, husbands and fathers.
How about you brothers, raise your hands if you will push your wives to become ideal daughters, sisters, wives and mothers.
One More Chance
The brothers responded very well, much better than you sisters. Your response was not so enthusiastic. I will give you another chance. Will you pledge to push your husbands.....Still your response was not so inspiring.
Now I understand why Father always comes over here to the sisters side and talks to you more. I will give you one more chance, will you pledge..... YEAHHSSS!!!
You must have absolute faith as an individual and realize that you have a big impact as an individual and as a family. Don't ever feel different. How can you tell people about the Kingdom if you do not live it yourself? You must live according to the highest standard. Those who will pledge to do that, please raise your hands.
Remember how many pledges have been made in this room and how many times have they been broken. You must live an ideal way of life without us looking over your shoulder all the time. We can't be there for you all the time. Sorry to point this out.
My Message Is Simple
You must push each other to live for the purpose of the whole. I have spoken almost for two hours now but it is still not enough so I feel I must think about something else to say.
My message is very simple. Live the right tradition and push yourselves and each other to emulate True Parents. The women can nag as much as they want if their husband does not do Church activities. Do not settle for mediocrity but for excellence.
