(Rev.Moon spoke at the inaugural meeting of
the Universal Peace Federation in Ireland
at The Gresham Hotel in Dublin
on November 4th, 2005. On the following morning at an early morning
service, Rev. Moon shared more of his vision and insights. This is an unofficial
record of his words paraphrased from personal notes taken at that time, Martin
What is meant by living well in the future?
moment we are like refugees during the wilderness course. How are we going to
settle down, avoiding compromising our traditions with the seven tribes of Canaan. It will take three generations of children to
become the meritorious subjects of the spirit world, so even if parents die,
they must hand on the heavenly tradition. Spouses, do you sometimes share intimate
moments with each other at the dinner table, such as a wife¡¯s whispers of love?
I feel this kind of intimacy when True Mother prepares my equipment for me to
go out to sea.
about your self before you do, your parents think about your self before you
do, that¡¯s why God (and parents) are great. Your father should be the best
friend among friends. This is the life force connection. In our families we
must have, not just faith education, but genius education programmes. Perhaps some of you have failed to offer
proper devotion to your parents, then offer those things to your brother
instead, and Heaven can accept. My own daughter, Sun Jin, inspired me with her
insight that the right foot is father and the left foot is mother. She was
really right!! Siblings will form the sphere around the flat left and right of
for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, so just take one bag, don¡¯t
burden yourself with acquisitions! Be frugal, for instance, only bath once
every 3 days, shed blood to save even one penny! Refrain from sleep, rest and
food. What are we creating by sparing? We are bequeathing a tradition! We are
not saving to become rich, but to save the world!
How do you develop your freedom?
concept of freedom must include your taking responsibility! Do you have the
freedom to attend your parents, your brothers and sisters etc? Freedom comes as
you play your role in the universe, like air, sunrise and water, which all have
their roles to play. Without fulfilling your responsibility you cannot claim
freedom. While you enjoy your freedom, then your family must be protected and
be able to enjoy their freedom too! In all there is balance, for instance, the
eyes absolute balance enables them to enjoy their own functional freedom. So,
ones own role is connected with absolute freedom.
decide to breathe thru¡¯ your eyes because you don¡¯t like your nose? But if you
have a cold, your mouth can take over breathing responsibilities. Why don¡¯t you
walk on your hands? Try going through fields of thorns, cutting your face! Is
that freedom? So, freedom has to cope with the actual environment, such as
gravity or water. In a family you should be free to greet your grandparents
before your parents! Again, if your behaviour damages the environment, this is
not freedom. Although there is plenty of air here, you are not free to claim it
all! We must be free to play our role in every position, grandparent, parent,
spouse, sibling etc Are you free to communicate in the parents language? (Korean)
If you are close to your teacher, and speak the same language, he/she may share
a lot with you. You feel close to people who speak the same language, so by the
same token, one language for the entire humanity is best!
I was for
one and a half years as servant of a housewife and family and gave them
absolute obedience. In the end they did surrender to me, but if they had
accepted me as Lord of the Second Advent, that family would have been
male and female, have different roles to play. As a woman, you must find your
husband and give birth to children. As a child you should follow and obey your
parents. You do want to see the bright sun in the morning, don¡¯t you, and then
because of this inspiration, sometimes you even feel like bowing down to that
sun! Old people should resemble God more and more as they prepare to enter the
spirit world. When you go, you will have to go by yourself, so prepare to find
your way. Since 80% of people are bound for hell, you must exercise your freedom
to rescue people who are dying and give life back to them. Don¡¯t create walls
and borders. Air comes in, wind comes in, even rats and flies come in. You may
think your home is safe! Go down to the zero point and humble yourself! Like
water, find your own level and balance.
Why do I do the things I do?
what purpose did I have in speaking for 4 hours? Because of standing so long,
my legs were swollen. I did this for a reason, don¡¯t you think? I feel that, as
a soldier, you have to be ready to give up your life. I just could not quit
before I did, because I have a certain responsibility.
confidential information last night, maybe it was not necessary! Not many
people left. My record is 16 hours and 48 minutes! People receive me because they
believe they can benefit. My responsibility is to make you happy in three
generations. The law of lineage is very strict. I know the goal and I know the
history. We cannot misuse our freedom, that is licence. Zionism is 800years
old, stronger than Communism, because they have a strict tradition of lineage.
One is Jewish only through the mothers lineage, all other are considered as
gentiles. Do you know that my children are teaching Cheong Seong Gyeong in the
spirit world. They have inherited my spirit and heart. I know that many of you
have made sacrifices for True Parents which you would not do even for your own
parents! In the Korean language, if you put the words s for ¡®filial piety¡¯ and ¡®father¡¯ together, that becomes ¡®church¡¯.
The place where fathers teaching is available! Behave properly, respect elders,
respect blessed couple traditions!
Rev Kwak¡¯s testimony.
(Rev Kwak gave a testimony about his
Blessing, in which True Father had chosen his bride and, completely against
Korean custom, had invited the parents to attend, but only under certain
conditions! This caused a great outcry amongst parents in Korea, however True Father went
ahead and conducted the Blessings without any reference to the parents wishes!)
I can be
very cruel when it concerns heavenly law, heavenly principle. If we follow
correct procedures then, roots, trunks, heavenly stem and leaves will come.
That will be my legacy for thousands of years. Jesus was supposed to be
married, his mother was supposed to help him to find a true woman, but she
didn¡¯t and he couldn¡¯t. From Jacob, 12 sons emerged, but there were always
conflicts between wives and concubines. What about Tamar or Bathsheeba? The Old
Testament and the New Testament are not enough to show all the secrets of God.
You can now fill your head with new truth! When I was 10/12 years old, I spent
my time in the mountains round my home, studying birds, insects and fish. I
invented new ways to catch birds. I have such a nature that when I played Ping
Pong, I learned from a champion, and developed my own style to beat him! Same
with playing Pool. I am not seeking to become a Pool Champion, but whatever I
do I invest myself completely. If I lose I cannot sleep! I work hard ¡®til I
win, in wrestling, soccer etc I have
that type of character that if anyone approaches me three times I know their
intentions. I even developed special ways to put on my socks, or in walking,
not to raise my foot too high. You can see that my shoes always wear out
evenly. I can read plans, layouts and blueprints very quickly. Because of this
I could share technology with Korea
When I was an Elementary School student I walked to school and back, 8
kilometres every day. I summarised everything into 3 pages and memorised it! I
reduced my notes from 15 to 7 to 3 pages and memorised it then to pass my exam.
Advice to Ireland
My legs are
tired, I am tired, but still talking. But God is fully awake all the time. I am
that serious. I have given 3 sons and 1 daughter to the spirit world. Are you
hungry for truth? I will give you a message now. This entire island should be
unified. In 700 years so many of your people have suffered. Within 7 years I
would do it. Now your nation will prosper, but first it has to accept the truth
from God. If you Irish work hard, you will build Cheon Il Guk. If you women
understand more than men, then the blessing will be upon the women. Noble Irish
ladies and gentlemen, doyou understand? Help the less fortunate! Don¡¯t hate the
British, in fact marry your children to them. Great
Britain and Ireland are One Nation under God.
You say you are Irish! I¡¯m from Heaven! I am a continent and you a small
island, waiting for me.
Do you know
in God¡¯s Providence
about the 1st and 2nd wife position? It means that if Ireland does better than England, then
the children from the 2nd wife¡¯s position will be good leaders.
Joseph, who became the Prime Minister of Egypt, was the 2nd youngest
son of Rachel. From the airport I felt this people shouldn¡¯t perish, they
should prosper. Go beyond even Russia,
become the forerunner. England
should have no more borderline skirmishes, no more violence. I came a long
distance as a bridegroom. This island can become a base position in this
continent. Even as 2nd wife you can be the frontrunner. No more friction.
Harmony and unity and good results from you. Please, again I emphasise, build
unity between you. I came here for the first time, now I recognised the 2nd
wife¡¯s position. Become a pillar in Ireland. I am laying conditions in Korea to become
a pillar. This is my advice as True Parents of Heaven, Earth and Humankind. If
you create a true seed, then mother will receive and germinate it. So take care
to play the role of mother.
