Religious leaders prostrate them-
selves and pray in an effort to receive
blessings, but I have never prayed to
receive any blessing. The Old Testament
Age was the age of finding God’s people
by establishing all things; the New Testa-
ment Age was the age of finding the Par-
ents by sacrificing the sons and daugh-
ters; and the Completed Testament Age
is the age of liberating God by sacrificing
the Parents’ family. This means bring-
ing the Original Parents to this earth
and living with them for thousands of
years. The Korean folk song about the
moon and the laurel tree sings of bring-
ing parents and living with them for
tens of thousands of years. This Korean
tale contains a revelation: “…wanting to
bring the heavenly parents to earth and
live with them for tens of thousands of
years….” Whenever I think about this
song, I cannot escape the intense long-
ing in my heart.
Don’t ever feel bad about having been
born as a Korean. In the past, you might
have felt pity for yourself for having been
born Korean, saying “How is it that I was
born in a thatched-roof hut among these
poor Korean people, although Korea
boasts of its five-thousand-year histo-
ry?” The Korean song that goes “Moon,
Oh moon, you bright moon” sings of
building a thatched cottage and living
there for thousands of years. I do not
feel happy when I hear this song. Only a
thatched-roof cottage? How can we ful-
fill the wishes of the people there? How-
ever, its reference to “build a thatched
cottage, bring my parents there and
live with them there for thousands of
years” must refer to the ideal parents of
humanity. The song connects with the
Christian belief in the Second Coming
and with the belief in a savior to come
that is present among all peoples and
nations. (85-80, 1976.3.2)

The year 1970 saw the beginning of
a great mobilization. The Blessed Fami-
lies from ten nations around the world
were called to Korea, in order to restore
Canaan. They were called to Korea and
became completely united while over
here. You must know that this was after
the Blessing of the 777 Couples. Wasn’t
that Blessing held in 1970? In mak-
ing such a foundation, the Unification
tribe from across the world representing
ten nations came to participate. Going
beyond the number nine, which signifies
formation, growth and completion, the
number ten is the number of God, and it
also corresponds to the number twelve.
That is why the ten nations must be con-
nected providentially. (69-237, 1974.1.1)
We Who Are Walking a Life Course
Sun Myung Moon
September 6, 1959
The mind acts according to the principles of the universe. It wants to move without limits toward goodness. This is like a magnetic needle pointing to north and south. The principle of nature would never lose the direction and circumvent goodness. There is no such phenomenon. The human mind also seeks to move toward a certain purpose. We have to understand clearly that the mind which is orientated toward life moves through the heart, desires to distill out the truth, desires to unite with the whole, and desires to live in harmony with the doctrine of the whole. This mind is the foundation upon which Heaven can reveal the escape route.
We who are fleeing must fight if we are to maintain a heart which is orientated toward the heavenly nature. We have to fight. We have to understand clearly that depending on whether or not we reach the goals of escape, we may or may not attain salvation. This is the process we are walking through. How should we run?
Ladies and gentlemen, think about this carefully. When we are in a fight, we have to fight in a way that God desires, use the strategies that God desires, and reach the point which God desires. It is inevitable that we have to establish values which comply with the program of the sponsor.
Ladies and gentlemen, please reflect once more upon what state you are in. Since we cannot deny that we acting in a world of purpose and we are chained to that world, the crucial question we must address is what our situation is in the escape route of our life. There are those who are not awake, even when layers of the enemies’ ranks are blocking the path before them. They are only dreaming about their situation, or they do not know that they are in a deep sleep. There are those who have fallen from fatigue in the middle of the path they should run on. There are all kinds of cases.
You should find yourself again. You who are participating here today should set the standard of heart, and, based upon that, discern your position and state of being and analyze yourself. Your mind yearns for something, yet without clearly understanding, you feel uneasy and fearful. For this reason, not only would you feel through natural phenomena that you should not be in the situation you are in; you will also sense it through all the things you see around you. Hence, even through these things you will have to understand the situation and state that you are in.
If you can become spiritually open, you will see that countless religious people of the distant past are crying out before the people. Many spirits are running by your side today. They are trying to awaken you by saying, “Let’s go; enemies are coming.” Yet your ears do not hear these voices; your eyes do not see; your bodies do not sense this. This is how tragic the situation is. There is nothing more mournful than this. This is not something that only you will lament over. This will become an unforgivable sin before Heaven, who is trying to connect the value of existence to the world of the ideals of the whole.
