Of the 36 Couples, the Adam couples were already married couples, the Noah couples were engaged but not married, and the Jacob couples were virgin men and women. Noah’s family did not fulfill the Will. When you look at the people in the world today you see that there are already married couples, those who are in informal relationships or are engaged, and the completely pure single men and women. From this time on, the foremost kind of people that True Parents should be seeking for are not the Adam couples but the true sons and daughters, in other words, pure single men and women. (242-104, 1993.1.1)

We do not need education for going the way of evil. Anyone can go that way because history started from evil. Would there be a need for education to go that way? Because people became evil of their own accord, society educates them to act according to their standard of conscience centering on ethics and morality. Education is carried out centering on what? Although people are educated according to goodness and conscience, how many are well grounded on the standard of that education? Evil things can be done without education; everybody can get a perfect score in that.
To those of us living in such circumstances, our conscience is always telling us to be good people. Although your mind always stimulates and advises you to be good, did you actually become good people? When we think about this problem, our whole life is continual lamentation. Today, tomorrow, this year all are lamentation. Youth, middle age, old age all are lamentation. We end our lives with it. In other words, our whole life may be marked by evil. This is the inevitable conclusion we reach. Because people were born from evil, they are wriggling in and going toward evil. This has been the way for the lives of those who are living today and all those who have lived until now.
Richard: Yes! Correct. That is why we have to study the highest standard of truth to inform our conscience. That is what will occur at the Dividing Line; Ending the Culture that Causes Sexual Abuse workshop on November 27th. There is only one more day to register.
Caution and Vigilance
A person walking the road of life must be vigilant. It will not do to lead a carefree and casual existence. Moment by moment we face occasions to either do good or evil, either to remain faithful to principles or to violate them. There are snares and pitfalls along the way, and to fall into one could spell disaster.
Hence we need caution, vigilance and mindfulness to survive and progress on the spiritual path. Hence, the world’s scripture call for vigilance, to be alert against any sin or diversion from a life lived in accordance with God’s Will. The Christian bible warns that the Lord comes “like a thief in the night” and encourages constant wakefulness through such passages as the parable of the Wise and Foolish Maidens. Islam calls us to constantly remember (zakara) God, his commandments, and his mercies, and reminds us through the duty of daily prayer. The Jewish sages recommended interpreting commandments strictly to place “a fence around the law,” so that there can be no possibility of transgression. The religions of the east promote meditative disciplines that train the aspirant to watch over his or her thoughts at all times. Father Moon affirms the need for vigilance at all times, and reminds us of the biblical figures of old who made serious mistakes due to momentary lapses in vigilance.
With caution and care,
As though on the brink of a chasm,
As though treading thin ice.
Analects 8.3 (Confucianism)
Faith, and willing perseverance
Will become defiled by a [moral] fall
Due to the mistake of lacking alertness.
Shantideva, Guide to the Bodhisattva’s
Way of Life 5.26 (Buddhism)
Good fortune gives birth to misfortune.
Who knows where is the turning point?
Tao Te Ching 58 (Taoism)
And I forbid all traffic with the wicked.
Avesta, Yasna 49.3 (Zoroastrianism)
