REVEREND SUN MYUNG MOON
THE REALM OF
December 15, 1991

The topic of Father's sermon this morning is, The Realm of Heavenly
Liberation. Every individual on earth dreams of becoming happy and
wants to lead a happy life with a happy family. People search for a
place in which they can find happiness. That place must have something
pertaining to all aspects of happiness. The conditions for happiness
within the individual, family, nation as well as on the cosmic level
must exist there. Let's examine and find the conditions necessary to
We would like the huge cosmos to embrace the world within it. We want
the world to embrace many nations. The country should embrace many
different clans and races. Within the clan we want to see many
prosperous families. In the family we would like to have as many
members as possible starting from the grandfather down to
grandchildren. "I" am one of those individuals who is
constantly seeking happiness. The happiness I would like to have is
happiness in all standards and every direction. We don't want to have
just one criterion for happiness, we want happiness in every possible
respect. That individual is then likely to be thinking about the whole
world. He is placing himself in a position of being greater than the
world, greater than the clan and the nation. Such is the human being
that has been created! Now we know what all mankind is seeking, but we
don't see it anywhere around us. It is apparently something that man
We are not daydreaming. It is not the concept of happiness we are
seeking, but the reality of happiness. Centering on myself I can pull
the country and the country is pulled to me. If I push the country, the
country is pushed away from me. We all want to be able to exercise our
will in such a way.
Immediately we think that money can help us do that. Money is so
important. But apparently even when people have a lot of money, they
have the tendency to build walls and isolate themselves. Certainly
then money is not the way to bring happiness to an individual.
The next thing we consider is knowledge. You may think a Harvard
education will help you. But we see that knowledge also is helpless in
achieving lasting happiness. If you take knowledge seriously, it
becomes very narrow and specialized. Narrow knowledge can never
encompass a world view. Knowledgeable people don't usually have a large
view. If one scholar knows even one more word of vocabulary than
another he claims he is better. So happiness doesn't seem to be found
in knowledge either.
How about power? Everybody likes power. Can power produce happiness? If
you have power do you want to distribute it and share it with others?
No, you want to keep it to yourself. All these things we have listed
don't seem useful in attaining happiness. At best they may help, but
none seems to be an important factor in finding happiness.
All sorts of walls exist in the world today. Starting with national
boundaries and the walls of secularism, what could possibly go through
those walls or bring them down? Money? To some extent yes, but very
little. There is only one hope in the fallen world to penetrate these
walls and do away with them. That is love. Isn't that true? If we
become a part of love in either the position of object or subject, and
become involved in the give and take of love, there is no place we
cannot go. Of course we have to consider that there is good love and
bad love. There is also mediocre love, which is neither good nor bad,
but neutral. Which layer of love do we live in today? Yes, we have to
confess that we are living more in the realm of bad love. How would you
define these three realms of love? What is the standard by which we
decide either good, bad or neutral love? It's not complicated. It is
all determined by the kind of man and woman involved.
According to the man and woman and their relationship we can determine
what realm of love they are in. People will say, "She is a good
woman" or "She is a so-so woman" or "She is a bad
woman." And the same thing is true among men. With these three
types of men and three types of women, there are six combinations that
you can put together, not more. Only one of them is the best liked. The
good relationship between a good man and a good woman is what the world
wants to see. In America the population is 240 million, half of them
are men and half are women. Is America a good country or bad country?
You don't know? [Bad.] Are there more good men or good women in this
country? Which percentage is higher? What is your guess? This is
serious. We need a good analysis. In order to do so, you have to list
everything and give it a lot of thought and evaluation.
Someone said America is bad. Is this because there are more bad women
or bad men in this country? Let's be serious and honest about it. The
divorce rate in this country is said to be more than fifty five
percent. Can the cause of divorce be more often traced to man or woman?
Answer clearly. [Both.] That is not acceptable, it is either man or
woman. Some thoughtful woman here said, "women." So,
individually speaking are there more bad men or bad women in this
country? So, in order for that bad country to become good, should men
follow women or should women follow men? Woman has to follow man. This
is the conclusion. [A sister shouts, "Women have to follow
God."] That's not even part of the question! In this country men
follow women. Do all men follow all women? No, because of all women,
only about ten percent are beautiful! Their eyes are crazy and upside
down. Men seek to follow what they think are beautiful women.
People try to make themselves more beautiful by using cosmetics. Do
women do that more or do men do that more? The use of makeup is almost
the total monopoly of women. If you think about it seriously should we
leave makeup alone or should we revolutionize cosmetics? Individual
women may not like the way they look, but after they use elaborate
makeup, they come to like themselves and walk proudly down Fifth
Avenue. Not to be critical, but honestly, would you women like to wear
dark, dingy clothing? Would men like to see women dressed that way? Or
does everyone want women to wear nice, bright, attractive clothes? We
like to see women wearing colorful and attractive dresses. Women want
everybody to pay attention to them. Alright, let's say a women tries
hard and gets lots of attention from men. Then what? Would she show
them something good or something bad? That's the next question. What do
you women think? After becoming beautiful and gaining lots of
attention, then what? [Good things.] Yes? It's clear enough that when
you become beautiful, you gain the attention of men and they will
follow you. Now, would you determine to make those men who follow you
into great patriotic men who can do service to their country, even to
bring them to the level of saint? Or, would you make him pay for you
and provide you with many things, to buy you drinks and live a lowly
life? Which way would you choose? [The first one.] American women think
on such a high level? It sounds strange to me. After you are well
dressed where do you want to go? Maybe the theater and then a dancing
hall. You enjoy yourself and feel high, then what would you like to do?
Maybe you'd like lots of drinks after that. We're talking about the
average woman in any country.
We think about the fallen world all the time. Is the fallen world
closer to sainthood or closer to the secular life Father described?
Let us be reminded, everyone is seeking happiness. They do what they do
in search of happiness. We know painfully well they cannot find
happiness there. On the other hand, we have a group of people who are
agonizing and suffering almost to the extent of misery. But there we
can find true love, lofty ideals and all the positive things. Now we
can reach a conclusion based on common sense. It is generally very true
that in the secular life of physical enjoyment, almost no enduring love
can be found. The general rule and conclusion is that you have more
chance of finding love among those who lead a suffering life than among
well-to-do people. That is exactly what Jesus pointed out when he said
it is more difficult for a rich man to go to the kingdom of heaven than
it is for a camel to go through the eye of a needle. The chance is so
Who is the most patriotic person in a country? Is it a person who has
everything at his disposal and can do whatever he desires? Is this
well-to-do person the one who has love or is it more likely the one who
lives in a miserable condition but is ready to give whatever he has for
the sake of the nation? Which one has more chance of finding happiness?
The sacrificial person. Nobody envies him, but he himself is in a
Of course there are two kinds of humble people. One is forced to live
this kind of life simply because he is poor. That may be a different
story. But the man who could lead a first rate, rich life but gives it
up to live in a more humble fashion is the one who has the chance of
finding love and happiness. You know the rules of the Principle very
clearly. By the same token, a citizen in the greatest and most affluent
country of America, who gives everything up and chooses to go to Africa
and suffer with the people there, helping them to improve and raise
them up above misery and sickness, is a great man. If Americans chose
to trade for that way of life, they would be respected all over the
world and they would find happiness. They would find the love and
respect of other people. Does this sound far fetched or reasonable?
This is reality.
You cannot accomplish that with money. In other words you cannot use
money to go down to a low position. Only love, and true love at that,
can make you do that. If you talk about true love, people will demand
to know where they can find it. You can explain that when this happens,
there is a good chance true love dwells there. God is the king of all
goodness. Everything that is good is connected to God. But if God said,
"I am good and you must all serve under me", can He remain
good? Therefore God too, would like to give all the good things up and
come down to live with those in difficulty. When everybody knows this
and follows God down, would we want God to stay down forever or would
we say to God, "We will replace you here. We will take your place
here so why don't you go up a step higher above me." We would like
to push God up and elevate him. In order for us to recognize and
glorify something good, we have to lift God up. Nobody cheers something
which is going down. So before we can cheer we want to bring God up. We
have to do that so we can glorify Him. Isn't that true?
We talked about happiness. From this perspective we have to truly
understand what is the happy way of life. Then if we choose to live in
this fashion, we don't want to attract love or anything at all, but
people will come in spite of that and recognize you and love you. Then
you are where God wants you to be. Through logic and reason, we see
clearly that in this huge and complicated world every imaginable wall
exists. You cannot even travel a short distance without being blocked
by some kind of wall. Only through true love you can go anywhere you
choose-a good place or a bad place. You can go anywhere with true
Which travels ahead of an individual, true love or true life? Which
one will pull which? [True love will pull true life.] Are you sure?
What you have just said is; in order to follow true love you have to
give up your life. Very interesting. Is it true or not? There is
absolute power in that understanding. Now we are aware of the truthful
statement in the Bible. Jesus always tried to teach men, "If you
want to live, you must die." Another paradoxical thing he said is,
your own family is your enemy. No one could ever understand this. Your
family pulls you back and says, "Be comfortable." That will
prevent you from going to heaven. Today's world challenges us greatly.
Christians say, "Believe and you will go to heaven." We know
this is not true. How can we just believe and go to heaven? We have to
believe and do before we can go to heaven.
The world is full of true love like it is filled with air. The space of
the world is filled with air isn't it? Now don't you experience within
your small family and between brothers and sisters, that you cannot
make another person do your will, right? An elder brother especially
will never listen to his younger sister. Even in a small family there
are walls. How can we bring them down and penetrate them? Pushing them
down is one way, but can you successfully do that? Can you force your
way in? Or because you are so smart can you sweet talk others and bring
down the walls? It might work at first, but once they find out they've
been deceived they'll come and pay you back with biting! That is human
But love is different. Love is the only way you can penetrate the
walls. Only true love can do it. The conclusion is simple. Father has a
secret to share here. Let's say within a family there is an older
brother who is really a tyrant because he is the heir. He is an
impossible person, like a bear who won't budge. Nothing will make him
move. But his little sister can penetrate him with true love. She will
make a small hole in his wall, but he won't mind. In fact he will ask
for more. That bear-like man won't mind this in true love. So the hole
becomes bigger until she can run a thread through it. Then she breaks
through another hole, and this time runs a thicker thread through it.
Later she can use a rope, and eventually this little sister will be
able to get her brother to be any way she likes him to be. The love of
a small woman can have that kind of strong power. Is it clear?
These thick walls are penetrable by love. We often talk about the
messiah. But who and what is he? He thinks about breaking through these
walls and nothing else. In a way, he is a specialist who is always
thinking, awake or asleep, about how to penetrate different walls. He
doesn't want to just penetrate the wall, he wants to build a road and
pave it so that many can come in with no problem. He is a highway
builder. Messiahship is accomplished by the one who does this at the
cost of his own pain and sacrifice. He endures pain and works hard
knowing that this road will benefit more than just his family. Millions
and billions of people will benefit from this highway. Without it they
could not go anywhere. The messiah knows this better than any other
person. He does not proclaim himself, but other people looking at his
work and realizing the benefit it brings, will make him the center of
his home, his clan, nation, and the whole world.
Everyone will fight to make him the king of kings. They will look at
him forever not only as their king, but their True Parent, also true
teacher and true owner.
Who is the true teacher? He is the one who teaches everything he knows
that is absolutely necessary for everyone. Without knowledge he knows
that people cannot amount to anything, so he teaches them again and
again. If there is nothing more to teach he will even research
something new so he can have more to teach. That is a true teacher. Do
He is a true owner at the same time. What does that mean? He not only
owns this position himself, but he wants to give this true ownership to
everyone forever and ever. He wants to make all men owners, so that
they don't have to belong to anyone else. For example, America is a
great country. If someone was the true owner of America he wouldn't
stop there. He would create an even bigger country outside. This true
owner would be twice as rich then, but he wouldn't want to keep it. He
wants to give it to everyone. He creates and gives, over and over. He
doesn't take and give. Let us assume there is such an owner, a man of
heart. God has a big gift box that He is dying to give away. He is
trying to find someone worthy of receiving it. Is any American
qualified to receive the big blessings of God? We aren't that way now,
but even the fact we are thinking that we need to become that qualified
person will make God happy. God then has hope at least. He is waiting
for the day He can give this big box to the true owner.
Father's topic this morning is the realm of Heavenly liberation. What
kind of place is heaven? Here in this world, we need our eyes. Is
heaven a place where we no longer need them? We need our eyes in heaven
too. Our eyes are dying to see the sights and scenes of true love in
heaven. In heaven will men's eyes by intoxicated by looking at another
man? What will men's eyes want to look at? What will women's eyes want
to look at? [Someone answers, "A true man will want to look at a
true woman."] What do you mean by true man? The hairiest man?
A true man is the one who has given up his life 100 times for others.
The one who has given up his life more than 100 times is a more true
man. You become more true in that fashion. Which kind of true man do
you want to be? Do you want to give up your life just ten times, or 100
times or a million times? If there was such a person in the spirit
world and your eyes could see him, what kind of relationship would you
have with him? How can you envelope him? One way you can relate to that
true man even though you may not be as great as him, is to become like
a child to him. Trust yourself to him. How can you refuse a small
innocent child who is completely trusting you and feels most peaceful
in your bosom? Isn't that one way of being a part of that true man? Any
mother would give all her five senses and all her attention to that
baby. She would devote everything to that child. What about God? Is God
too great to be involved in that? God too, just like a devoted mother
would pay all His attention to that baby. We prize concepts and good
talk but would you trade that baby's reality for millions and billions
of concepts and words? No, this reality is greater. This entity of true
love can never be traded. No one would want to trade him for millions
of words or concepts or acts of love.
Is it easy or difficult to go to heaven? [Difficult.] How difficult?
Let us think about one simple criteria. In the fallen world we always
struggle to survive and go to heaven. Who has more chance of going to
heaven? The one who fights the battle and survives or the one who
fights and loses in this world. The one who wins over the battle in
this evil world is the one who has the chance of going to heaven. If
your loving wife says, "Oh, there are too many walls and they are
too high to go over, why don't we just give it up now?", can that
couple go to heaven? The husband should say, "Satan, get behind
me." The wife will not retreat peacefully either. She will jump,
scratch and bite. If that is your wife will you fight against her or
will you just give up fighting? Wait until she gets tired. Run her down
and then carry her over into heaven. Father would like to see one
example of this among the thousands of Unification Church members in
America. If anyone has seen that person, please let Father know.
Children will fight against you too. What can the parents do? They must
put up with them and persevere. The country will throw a tantrum too,
demanding that you aren't being reasonable.
They will do everything, perhaps even putting you into jail. What can
you do? All we have to do is persevere. Maybe you barely manage to gain
the recognition of your country. Then the world will come against you,
saying, "We don't need a saint from another country. We will
produce saints of our own country." They want to protect
themselves and push you out so what can you do? You are only a small
man and not powerful yet. Can you hope to fight against them equally
and still hope to go to heaven? No, you cannot go to heaven fighting.
You simply have to persevere and do more.
We know now that God is the king of perseverance and He apparently
still has a longer way to go and persevere. Therefore we must simply do
the same; persevere and try harder, until God doesn't have to persevere
Satan has been building walls throughout history. He will stop true
man's approach to his goal. But the true man should not fight against
him. He should persevere and even love Satan more and after all this is
done, even Satan will be able understand the power and happiness of
love. Then Satan will bow down to the true man saying, "Your way
is better than mine. Let me surrender to that idea and learn that new
way of life from you." This is the day when the solution to this
complex world will begin. Once that happens the problems will be solved
in no time.
How many people are willing to keep the same stance as God and that
true man? Forget how many, is there even one person who has mentioned
that stance here in the human world? Did anyone even teach this? What
kind of person is Reverend Moon, the leader of the Unification Church?
He is the only person who knows God's tradition of sacrifice. He is the
only person who knows who God is and what God has been doing all
throughout history. Following this tradition faithfully, he has
penetrated all the walls of the individual level, the family level,
even to the highest level of Satan himself.
Now Father met Kim Il Sung. Father has now realized exactly what he
envisioned. Only through true love could Father penetrate the thickest,
biggest wall of communism and Kim Il Sung; the worst impenetrable wall
the world has known. Father understood that the course he has been
following was exactly right. He completely got what he expected out of
Kim Il Sung.
Even Father was challenged in that situation. In 1976 or '78, Kim Il
Sung employed twenty six assassins to kill Father. Kikamura was one of
them. His trial is still pending in the United States courts. Not just
one or two people were sent after Father, but over twenty and this is
addition to the KGB which was at its strongest at that time.
How could Father go over that? He didn't try to destroy them, but tried
to love them and digest them and penetrate that thick wall so he could
reach behind the Iron Curtain with brotherly love. It was not easy. It
was relatively easy for Reverend Moon to love his own wife, children
and disciples, but to love the archenemy of God and himself was not
easy. How to accomplish that was his own challenge. Now Father could be
so comforted in knowing that his understanding and actions were right
and that his efforts were not in vain.
Father's meeting with Gorbachev seemed to be a very simple encounter,
but this isn't so. It took all the energy Father had to survive and
reach that point. After Gorbachev was penetrated by true love, he gave
in and discussed many things with Reverend Moon. Look at how much the
world changed in such a short time of one year. That is the Principle
of "plus power." If there is a strong positive, a strong
negative will come out of nowhere into existence right away. Even Kim
Il Sung, the strong minus, has an original mind, deeply hidden and
guarded. But when this strong positive force like the core of God
appears, he will be switched. The contents will be communicated and
this giant plus and minus will mingle into one.
It is just like when a parent is dying and wants to communicate his
will. No child, not even a bad one can resist that. By the same token
this tremendous power of the true love of God was always directed to
Kim Il Sung. When Kim Il Sung heard Reverend Moon speak, he could not
resist. He opened his mind and received a flood of thought. Reverend
Moon spoke to him on that level, saying "Don't forget what I
say." In spite of himself, Kim will do things and think things. He
didn't plan for it to happen that way. Some call that a miracle but we
would rather say a new creation is taking place.
As human beings, all of us have to stand in Father's position and meet
our challenge as individuals born here on earth. Have we ever loved
another human being so deeply? Have you loved your wife the way a true
husband would love her? Have you loved your husband the way a true wife
would? As a parent, have we loved our children so truly? Have we ever
loved our parents so truly? These are the points we have to challenge
ourselves on today. We need to go exactly the same way as God and
Father did. The ones who can reach the realm of heavenly liberation
will be a true brother, a true child, a true couple and true parents
also. He will be a true ancestor. These are all categorized as the true
generation. For the true generation, all the walls that we find in the
world will not exist in the realm of heavenly liberation. All the
walls will be gone, therefore all can go into heaven. No matter how
many people are living now, or how many lived in the past and are now
in spirit world, by participating in the same love, they all have the
ability to eventually go to this realm. In the same way children have
the ability to go where their parents go.
If your finger has the touch of true love it doesn't matter where you
push through. It may be painful, but if it is a finger of true love you
don't mind. Actually that pain is a pleasure. A true love finger can
travel anywhere and no one will mind.
The model of all the achievements here is simple enough: God gave us
family. The regret and sorrow of God is that until this moment he could
not find a text with which he could teach his loving children. He
simply did not have a textbook. Why? Because everything is fallen,
there is no prototype for such a textbook.
We must understand and go along with God's historical desire and deep
wish to teach right things to His true children. God's other regret and
deep sorrow has been that He could not find love between brothers. When
we say brothers, sisters are included. Saying brothers and sisters
doesn't just mean between two people, there could be as many as
thirteen or fourteen brothers and sisters. There was no textbook for
God to teach them how they should live their lives. They remained
ignorant. Another of God's deep regrets is that He could not make a
textbook by which He could teach the true husband and wife
relationship. Husband and wife could not learn anything because there
was no textbook and God couldn't make it because there was no example.
Today it doesn't exist either. Nor could God teach true parents proper
conduct towards their children. That textbook is not there. These four
textbooks are lacking.
As soon as these four textbooks are complete and everybody learns their
secrets, then Satan will be completely expelled from the face of this
earth. Then we will see the kingdom of heaven come on this earth. We
won't have to wait to go to spirit world to see it. At that time no
messiah, nor even religion will be necessary because people will
already have fulfilled the goal of the messiah and religion. That is a
world where everyone is intoxicated just as if they drank a lot of
wine. They would be drunk with love. They wouldn't want any more.
Everybody would be full. That world is full of happiness and no want.
How then will God go about compiling those textbooks? For that purpose
God picked one person who represents all manhood. He then picked out
one woman to represent all womanhood. Centering on this couple, all
perfection will take place when these four textbooks have been
Here we focused on true love, that a man representing all mankind will
live in true love. That true love will be the same among children and
brothers and sisters and life. All these four loves are there. After
that textbook is complete, is it easy or difficult to learn? After the
book is written it is easy. Thanks to Father we already know the reason
for our existence. We already know that woman exists for the sake of
man and man exists for the sake of woman and that parents exist for the
sake of children and children exist for the sake of their parents.
Every individual lives for the sake of another, going beyond his own
life to love others.
Why is it that a man needs a woman and a woman needs a man, absolutely
and with no exception? If a couple gets along fine alone, why is it
that they need to have children? Why is it that the more children they
have, the better? Why not just one child? Because if there are more
subjects and objects of love, there is so much more you learn. The
larger the family the better.
Look at it this way. Why does man need woman? Because he needs a
textbook to learn from. Man learns from woman. This was why God brought
man and woman into existence. Why do we need brothers and sisters? So
that we can learn to love the parents. Without loving each other, they
cannot properly learn to love the parents. In this way every individual
component is created for the sake of others. Amen!
If a brother loves so much that his whole purpose of existence is for
his family members, and he lives that way more and more, even though it
hurts him and he is not paid back for his efforts, he must then forget
the hurt and begin again and again. His brothers are there to love him
and he is there to love his brothers. God also looks down at him. All
three elements of love are directed toward that individual. This is a
holy position where he is the essence of God's love.
Why should a family live for the sake of the nation? Why don't we just
forget about the country? It is because a country is not just one
family. There are hundreds, and thousands, even millions of families
like your own. That makes a nation a million times more precious than
one family. It is the law of recreation, that the smaller entity should
be absorbed by the larger entity. God created it that way. When you
come to think like this, go into the subway and look around. You see so
many people who aren't just individuals, but heads of their families.
Each one has a precious family as you do. You come to revere them and
be sympathetic to their problems of managing a family. It may even
strike you as awesome how so many people realize a family and reach to
God. Think about those among them who will become prominent statesmen
and maybe one day a president who can bring this country into
prosperity and peace. Another may become a great doctor who one day
when you need him can provide the cure for your problems. Then you can
come to respect them. You will feel that all those people are there for
your sake, able to provide for you as much as you can give to them.
When you feel this respect towards them, it will be followed by love.
Then you will feel thankfulness for everything.
Isn't it true that if you think like this in a crowd, then God looks
down at you and will say, "He or she thinks like me." He
cannot miss that. After that, God will get right behind that person and
protect him. When he is going into danger God will preserve him from
the danger. This is reality. God truly does that.
Doing as much as Father has done for this country, how can he suppress
his anger and disappointment? America is traditionally a country where
they treat guests well. But Father is the guest of all guests. There
has never been any more valuable guest to come to America throughout
history. But he received nothing but persecution here. How does Father
overcome that? Father says these people must want to see the character
of God beyond any dispute or doubt or compromise in their imagination.
They all want to see the perfect personality and character of God in
Father, so Father keeps on persevering, thinking, "Thank you. You
are trying to help me become more perfect. So I will try better and
harder." This is the way Father has lived in America. Jesus didn't
feel anger at those who pierced him with the spear. He simply felt
sorry for them. Jesus felt more pitiful than angry towards the mob.
[Referring to drawing on board.] All the steps here line up in a
vertical arrangement. This family system is a unit. The national level
is an expansion of the same situation. It expands to the world level
with the same contents and same situation. That will expand to the
cosmos and then the greatest expansion place which is heaven. Do you
understand? The concept and contents is the same. That is living for
the sake of others.
Father's conclusion: there is no one living entity which exists for its
own sake. Not one. Isn't it true that man and woman are even physically
built for each other? Did God create man first and then see what was
happening? Or did God have the concept of love very clear before He
started to create human beings? Man's reality is to live for the sake
of others. That is God's concept. Man must live for others. First
comes concept and that is to love others. Second is reality and that is
the opposite sex and partnership. Man first has to think about love and
then he has to think about woman. But this love is for the sake of
others. If he thinks about himself, he is Satan. If he thinks about
everyone except himself, he is God-like.
Father lived for the sake of Kim Il Sung too. It is not because Kim Il
Sung drew Father but Father drew Kim Il Sung. Father confirmed this to
us today. America also may go against Father, but there will be one day
when the whole country will kneel down before Reverend Moon once they
know what he has been doing for America. The question will be who won?
You know the answer. As of today, is America winning or is Reverend
Moon winning? In terms of true love Reverend Moon won. He won in terms
of God's formula.
Reverend Moon carried on that same way of life in Danbury prison. It
also worked there. For some reason all the prison inmates were drawn to
Reverend Moon. They didn't know why, but they felt drawn to him. There
always seemed to be more people in the room where Father was. No one
told them to do that, but they naturally did. When they finished their
terms and were about to leave, they would always come to report to
Father. They would cry just like they were leaving their own family.
Reverend Moon was only a yellow guy, but these white men would come to
him with respect. How about you? Do you love me or not? How much? Even
though we would have to give up America, we would rather follow Father.
So the nationality boundary, the race boundary, the tradition and
cultural boundaries are no problem. We can solve all of them with
unification. Let's do it! That's all!
Now we see the possibility of heaven being liberated. Heaven is bound
and gagged now, but this is the way we can liberate it. Then all
things are restored as God intended. The liberation of women will also
take place. This is where the four textbooks will be fulfilled. With
that, God will be able to travel anywhere He wants. He will be able to
direct all mankind into any direction He wants. There will be no more
sorrow, no more burden and no more tasks to do. God will finally rest.
This is the realm of the liberation of heaven. This is where God can
rest in peace for the first time. We must realize that we are living
for that day. We are living according to the textbook on how to become
true children, how to become true brothers and sisters to each other,
how to become a true husband or wife and how to become true parents.
When we live like this we are surely and steadily going to this area of
liberated heaven where even hell can be converted into heaven. We must
understand that ahead of us, True Parents are treading surely into that
direction. That is all they are doing.
In True Parent's family, these four textbooks are already well under
way. The textbook to learn what true children should be is first.
Secondly, the textbook which teaches what true brothers and sisters
should be. Third, the textbook which teaches what true couples, or true
husband and wife should be and lastly what the true parents should be.
Those four textbooks are already healthily well underway. That is what
the true family is developing. Amen!
[Father addressed each of his sons by name] All brothers, you have to
memorize Father's speech this morning. Do you understand? [Then his
daughters] You have to make that standard of a true family system. Do
you understand? You have to make that kind of tradition. Its not so
easy. Don't forget Father's speech this morning. Say it in a loud
