On the day you are really born as
God’s son…. Amongst the innumerable
stars, do you think there is a realm of
diamond stars or not? Think about it.
You want to have diamonds, don’t you?
You can’t say there isn’t a star made just
of gold. It is possible. How rich God, our
Father, is! Have you ever thought about
that? We can travel this infinite uni-
verse in a moment. Are you interested?
Are you truly interested? If so, what we
need to do is observe the normative laws
in accordance with God’s commands:
“Don’t do this!” or “Do that!” This is pos-
sible only when you observe what God
says to do or not to do. It is only logical
that this becomes impossible if you live
according to your selfish desires.

Richard: We have to observe God’s commandments in order to stay in his will. The number one commandment is sexual purity before marriage and fidelity within marriage. See this teaching in True Families Gateway to Heaven .

The Ceremony of the Settlement of
the Eight Stages signifies that the histor-
ical course of vertical indemnity and the
course of horizontal indemnity that went
through the stages of individual, family,
people, nation, and the world. That is the
vertical and horizontal courses consist-
ing of eight stages are completed. Due
to this, the right of eldest son has been
restored, and the course of indemnity for
all humanity is abolished. That is what
I have done by holding this ceremony.
The right of the eldest son is restored; the
Parents are embracing all humankind.
Thus, an end is brought to the history
of war and struggle that was necessary
in order for the right of the eldest son to
be restored in the realm of parental love.
The time has come when indemnity is
not needed and we can reach harmony
in love. In order to achieve this, I had to
hold the Ceremony of the Settlement of
the Eight Stages. By holding this cere-
mony, the Parents forgave both the elder
and the younger son, so that next we can
enter the age of the realm of forgiveness
for the fallen parents. (193-173, 1989.10.3)

Richard: Satan’s world is in its death throes; the current seeming advance of evil will not stand.

Spirits of the Departed

Souls who have passed on do not really leave us.  They remain with us as more than mere memories. the souls of people whom we loved on earth continue to seek our welfare us much as they are able. the souls of people we wronged on earth harbor resentment against us and would avenge themselves if given the chance. thus, the dead are not really dead. they may be living with us. sometimes sensitive people can call them down to earth, as in the bible when Saul employed a medium to call up the ghost of the prophet Samuel. 
    Most people are ignorant of spiritual influences on the living, yet they are real. the philosopher Immanuel Kant once said, “the human soul stands even in this life in indissoluble connection with all immaterial natures in the spirit world, that it reciprocally acts upon these and receives impressions and help from them.” they include not only spirits of the dead, but also nature spirits—sprites, fairies and their ilk. the first peoples know them well, and their shamans are trained to sense their presence and employ them for human benefit. their influence can be benign, or it can be beneficial, as the muse that inspires great art or the sudden insight that begets scientific discovery and invention. spiritual influence can also be terribly destructive; for example, the passions that inflame age-old conflicts into modern-day ethnic violence.
    Intercourse between heaven and earth works both ways. spirits can be mobilized to assist earthly people for a righteous cause; conversely spirits need help from earthly people to resolve their own difficulties. Many religions promote the idea that the living should make offerings to benefit the dead; the Latter-Day saints even promote baptism for the dead as a way to bring them closer to the perfection of the end-times. in this regard, Father Moon teaches a doctrine of “returning resurrection,” by which spirits descend to assist the living, and the living in turn assist the dead by shouldering the burden of their unfinished business and resolving it.

  1. Spirits Among Us

Do not say, “They are dead!” about anyone who
is killed for God’s sake. Rather they are living,
even though you do not notice it. 
    Qur’an 2.154

The scent of the sakaki leaves is fragrant; 
Drawing near, I see countless kinsmen
Assembled all around,
Assembled all around.
    Kagura-Uta (Shinto)

The light which these souls [of departed saints]
radiate is responsible for the progress of the
world and the advancement of its peoples. They
are like leaven which leavens the world of being,
and constitute the animating force through
which the arts and wonders of the world are
made manifest… These souls and symbols of
detachment have provided, and will continue
to provide, the supreme moving impulse in the
world of being.
    Gleanings from the Writings of Bahá’u’lláh 81
    (Baha’i Faith)

Then the woman said, “Whom shall I bring up
for you?” He said, “Bring up Samuel for me.”
When the woman saw Samuel, she cried out
with a loud voice; and the woman said to Saul,
“Why have you deceived me? You are Saul.”
The king said to her, “Have no fear; what do
you see?” And the woman said to Saul, “I see
a god coming up out of the earth.” He said to
her, “What is his appearance?” And she said,
“An old man is coming up; and he is wrapped
in a robe.” And Saul knew that it was Samuel,
and he bowed with his face to the ground, and
did obeisance. Then Samuel said to Saul, “Why
have you disturbed me by bringing me up?”
    1 Samuel 28.11-15

Those who are dead are never gone:
they are there in the thickening shadow.
The dead are not under the earth:
they are there in the tree that rustles,
they are in the wood that groans,
they are in the water that runs,
they are in the water that sleeps,
they are in the hut, they are in the crowd,
the dead are not dead.
Those who are dead are never gone:
they are in the breast of the woman,
they are in the child who is wailing,
and in the firebrand that flames.
The dead are not under the earth:
they are in the fire that is dying,
they are in the grasses that weep,
they are in the whimpering rocks,
they are in the forest, they are in the house,
the dead are not dead.
    Birago Diop (African Traditional Religions)

“The path of the hekura is visible, luminous;
there arises from it something like a fiery breath
that makes the air heavy and almost unbreath-
able. One does not see the hekura, one feels the
wind they raise when they move. During the
hunt from which I just returned, I scattered the
hekura who were in me.”
    “Ordinary men are unable to recognize
them. Yet the wind tells us that they are there.”
    “I see them only at night, when I close my
eyes.”
    “One can see them only then.”
    “Their paths become luminous for me. I
am sleeping; they approach and summon me
to answer them. They suddenly wake me by
shaking my arm or pulling on my ankle.”
    “Those who are not truly shamans do not
hear them. He who is really a shaman hears a
kind of buzzing, ‘bouu…’ during his sleep, and
this song echoes, rebounding off the celestial
vault. He opens his eyes and says to himself, ‘I
am going to see them now!’ The parrotlets sing,
‘bre, bre, bre,’ he knows that it is they. A cool
breeze then glides along his legs…”
    “I saw the hekura walk on a rotten branch;
I was passing right underneath.”
    “Indeed, it was they; but they were not
friendly toward you. The strong odors of the
smoking grill, the smell of singed hair, of scorched
meat near the fire, all this drives them off. Yet
they did seem inclined to approach you.”
    “They give off a heady perfume; it comes
from the dyes and the magic plants they carry
with them. Suddenly, I stopped smelling these
aromas, my nostrils no longer perceived them.”
    “Therefore when one is at the end of the
initiation, it is advisable not to hunt. If a flock
of toucans takes flight and one of them lands
near you, then all the others immediately follow
suit. Be sure not to frighten them: stare at them
fixedly and continue on your way; you be sure
that they are hekura. Of course, there are those
you drove away during the hunt; but don’t be
overly concerned, I foresee that those were not
the good ones. The others remain, who came
into your breast while you were lying in your
hammock. Those are truly yours, they are in
you.” 33
    Yanomami Shaman’s Instruction
    (Native American Religion)

And when the last Red Man shall have perished,
and the memory of my tribe shall have become
a myth among the white men, these shores will
swarm with the invisible dead of my tribe, and
when your children’s children think themselves
alone in the field, the store, the shop, upon the
highway, or in the silence of the pathless woods,
they will not be alone. In all the earth there is
no place dedicated to solitude. At night when
the streets of your cities and villages are silent
and you think them deserted, they will throng
with the returning hosts that once filled them
and still love this beautiful land. The White
Man will never be alone.
