The family is the heavenly base. You
must firmly settle in a family. You should
firmly settle in a family and decide the
direction in which you will go. Center-
ing on True Parents and God, all fam-
ilies should put up True Parents’ pic-
ture, and your four-position foundation
should bow there together. Three gener-
ations must offer a bow. The four posi-
tion foundation involves three genera-
tions. Three generations – grandfather
and grandmother, mother and father,
and children – should offer a bow. After
establishing a four position founda-
tion, when you bow down in the name
of True Parents this is not within the
fallen domain. You will be in the realm
of liberation because God has direct
dominion over you. All the spirits in
the heavenly world will come to earth
and protect you just as the archangel
was meant to protect Adam’s family. We
have entered such an age. In the past, the
Cain domain was the spirit world and
the Abel domain was the earth. Abel was
being used because it was the time when
Abel had to sacrifice to rescue Cain. But
now, since the right of the eldest son
has been restored, the spirit world is the
angelic world and today’s Unification
Church families constitute the Adam
domain; so the spirit world is meant to
support the Adam domain and not use
it for its own advantage. Through this,
the land wherein Satan can interfere
and operate is disappearing. There is no
room for him. Satan is being expelled.
When we march forward strongly and
boldly, without sacrificing our stan-
dards of being the forefront even by one
step and keep a progressive attitude and
unwavering standard, the devil’s forces
will fall off a cliff. Let’s light a fire under
each family. (211-349, 1991.1.1)

Why was woman created? She was
created for the sake of love, for man. She
is meant to exist for the sake of man.
Why was man born? Man was born for
the sake of woman. That is the essence
of the original ideal of the universe. That
is the law of the universe and the truth.
There is nothing that can change it. This
simple truth was unknown until now.

Truth and Universal Law

Moral Law

Divine law, the immutable law of nature, is inherently moral. It embraces in one principle the cosmological, ethical, social and legal spheres. Religion, therefore, cannot accept the modern distinction between fact and value; rather the moral law governing human life is as absolute as the law of gravity.
Since the order of the universe and the order of life cohere; establishing right order in our lives is the way to prosperity and longevity. Following the moral law leads to life and heaven; ignoring the law leads to decline, suffering and death.
The moral norms of human life are revealed in sacred Scriptures are variously called the Law or Torah (Judaism), Dhamma (Theravada Buddhism), Tao (Taoism), Dharma (Hinduism), and Moral Order (Confucianism). Yet these are but expressions of a natural law, inherent to our being and written on the heart, which transcends religion or social circumstance. In fact, as Father Moon teaches and Confucian texts confirm, it finds its foremost expression in the family. The fundamental principle is to establish harmonious relationships, and this is achieved by practicing unselfishness and living for the sake of others.

  1. Living by the Law

The Lord commanded us to do all these stat-
utes, to fear the Lord our God, for our good
always, that he might preserve us alive, as at
this day.
Deuteronomy 6:24

Easily known is the progressive one, easily known
the one who declines. He who loves Dhamma
progresses, he who hates it declines.
Sutta Nipata 92 (Buddhism)

God has revealed the fairest of statements, a
Scripture consistent, [with reward] paired [with
punishment], at which creeps the flesh of those
who fear their Lord, so that their flesh and their
hearts soften to God’s reminder. Such is God’s
guidance, with which He guides whom He will.
Qur’an 39.23

The night passes; it is never to return again.
The night passes in vain
for one who acts not according to the law.
Uttaradhyayana Sutra 14.24 (Jainism)

The law of the Lord is perfect,
reviving the soul;
The testimony of the Lord is sure,
making wise the simple;
The precepts of the Lord are right,
rejoicing the heart;
The commandment of the Lord is pure,
enlightening the eyes;
The fear of the Lord is clean,
enduring for ever;
The ordinances of the Lord are true,
and righteous altogether.
More to be desired are they than gold,
even much fine gold;
Sweeter also than honey
and drippings of the honeycomb.
Psalm 19.7-10

Those who live in accordance with the divine
laws without complaining, firmly established in
faith, are released from karma. Those who violate
these laws, criticizing and complaining, are utterly
deluded, and are the cause of their own suffering.
Bhagavad-Gita 3.31-32 (Hinduism)

Every one then who hears these words of mine
and does them will be like a wise man who built
his house upon the rock; and the rain fell, and the
floods came, and the winds blew and beat upon
that house, but it did not fall, because it had been
founded on the rock. And every one who hears
these words of mine and does not do them will be
like a foolish man who built his house upon the
sand; and the rain fell, and the floods came, and
the winds blew and beat against that house, and
it fell; and great was the fall of it.
Matthew 7.24-27

The blessed Buddhas, of virtues endless and
limitless, are born of the Law of Righteousness;
they dwell in the Law, are fashioned by the Law;
they have the Law as their master, the Law as
their light, the Law as their field of action, the
Law as their refuge…
The Law is equal, equal for all beings. For low or
middle or high the Law cares nothing. So I must
make my thought like the Law.
The Law has no regard for the pleasant. Impartial
is the Law. So I must make my thought like the
The Law does not seek refuge. The refuge of all
the world is the Law. So I must make my thought
like the Law.
The Law has none who can resist it. Irresistible
is the Law. So I must make my thought like the
The Law has no preferences. Without preference
is the Law. So I must make my thought like the
The Law has no fear of the terrors of birth-and-
death, nor is it lured by Nirvana. Ever without
misgiving is the Law. So I must make my thought
like the Law.
Dharmasangiti Sutra (Buddhism)

What Tao plants cannot be plucked,
What Tao clasps cannot slip.
By its virtue alone can one generation after
another carry on the ancestral sacrifice.
Apply it to yourself and by its power you will be
freed from dross.
Apply it to your household and your household
shall thereby have abundance.
Apply it to the village, and the village will be
made secure.
Apply it to the kingdom, and the kingdom shall
thereby be made to flourish.
Apply it to an empire, and the empire shall
thereby be extended.
Tao Te Ching 54 (Taoism)
