Our Standards

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.


Equal Object


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.
