The roots of patriotism must be
planted in the family. It is not within the
offices of towns and counties, but in the
family. So… have you followed my dec-
laration to work for the tong ban break-
through activities? Have you done well
or not? You, professor, have you done
well or not? How many times have you
wandered through the night determined
to breakthrough at the local level? That is
the problem. If you do not possess a more
sorrowful heart for the nation than you
felt when your own father passed away,
you cannot save the nation. If you don’t
feel more sadness and pain in your heart
than when your own mother or your
own relatives pass away, then the uni-
fication of North and South Korea will
not happen. This is how I see things.
When you professors enter people’s
homes, you should grab hold of their
hands and, choked with tears, utter an
appeal for them to work together for the
unity of North and South Korea. That
one word of appeal would be more pow-
erful than a thousand words spoken by
a scholar passing by. That’s the reason I
have formed the Professors and Students
Federation for Unification and connect-
ed the professors who are willing to save
the neighborhoods with the students
Then, united, they should rally together
all the sons and daughters of the neigh-
borhoods. That is my direction. (176-112,

You should earnestly long for the
Parents. You cannot receive salvation
without attending the Parents based on
their being the motivation for your life,
the entirety of your hope and the root
of all your ideals and happiness. Have
you ever tried offering attendance like
that? You should understand this clear-
ly. Hence, you should have the convic-
tion that you are a child who can become
eternally one with True Parents, and have
it so firmly that you can transcend your
consciousness of your own being. Oth-
erwise, it will not work. (30-237, 1970.3.23)

3. Leading a Joyous Life

The Holy Spirit rests on him only who has a joy-
ous heart.
Jerusalem Talmud, Sukkot 5.1 (Judaism)

Let us live happily, without hate amongst those
who hate. Let us dwell unhating amidst hateful

Let us live happily, in good health amongst those
who are sick. Let us dwell in good health amidst
ailing men.

Let us live happily, without yearning for sensual
pleasures amongst those who yearn for them.
Let us dwell without yearning amidst those who

Let us live happily, we who have no impediments.
We shall subsist on joy even as the radiant
Dhammapada 197-200 (Buddhism)

Awake, O north wind,
and come, O south wind!
Blow upon my garden,
let its fragrance be wafted abroad.
Let my beloved come to his garden,
and eat its choicest fruits.
I come to my garden, my sister, my bride,
I gather my myrrh with my spice,
I eat my honeycomb with my honey,
I drink my wine with my milk.
Eat, O friends, and drink:
drink deeply, O lovers!
Song of Solomon 4:16-5:1

Teachings of Rev. Sun Myung Moon

God comes and extends His blessing to whatever thing you do with pleasure. (308:214, January 5, 1999)

If two-thirds of your life of seventy or eighty years was sorrowful, to compensate for the sorrow of those years, why don’t you make the remainder of your life a joyful time centering on God? Live your life as you would in the Kingdom of God. The Kingdom of God is where one gives, and gives again. God is giving. Parents give to their children. The parental heart is such that even after giving, it wants to give and give again when there is something better to give. (34:141, August 30, 1970)

Why does a man need a woman, and a woman need a man? It is so they can resonate with God’s love. It is to reach a state of ecstasy where they exclaim, “Wow, it is wonderful!” They are too happy even to eat or sleep. A man and woman need each other because only in the fullness of conjugal love can they resonate in full consonance with God’s love. (102:21, November 19, 1978)

The horizontal love between a husband and wife blossoms with God’s ideal love, and the fragrance of their love resonates throughout the universe even as God adds His love to their love. This is the perfection of the parent-child relationship between God and human beings.
The heavenly Parent sings of His children’s happiness, their hopes and everything about them. Together the Parent and His son and daughter sing of love.
It does not end there. To that precious gift, the love they possess, God adds a third dimension of love. Then their universe expands like a balloon when air is blown into it. Their world used to be flat, but now it is big enough to hold all the created beings in the world with room to spare. It materializes with the power of their love, permeating the whole. (101:35, October 28, 1978)
