    When the lost children are found, parents can regain authority over their children. Next, the right of kingship which has been lost must be restored. The ideal starting point of parents is the royal palace. Adam, must exercise his right as the first son, restore the right of parents, and true kingship and establish himself centering on God’s love. This settling is the origin of the royal palace and parents. Next is the point where the first son’s rights originate. By following this tradition, the universe fully adapts itself. When this is achieved, even the fallen archangel will have to bow his head.
    The relationship between the communist world and the democratic world is a Cain-Abel relationship. Cain and Abel fought, did they not? In a vertical sense, the political and religious spheres represent Cain and Abel. The vertical aspect was struck by the horizontal, so the foundation to restore the right of the first son was lost. The foundation to restore it automatically includes the right of parents. Parents come into being on the foundation of the eldest son. When the right of parents is established, right of kingship will grow. Adam’s family is the starting point of the royal palace. As the royal family grows in numbers, there will be more citizens. When the tribe inherits this kingship centering on the right of the eldest son and centering on that tribe, the tribes from other blood lines will become citizens. This is part of the principle. Because of this, they are all part of the royal family.
    You can return to the original standard of Adam’s family only when you have the consciousness of being a royal family in the heavenly nation. You are tribal messiahs. Tribal messiahs are parents, and also kings. They are to represent the rights of the eldest son, and to inherit the tribal kingship, the rights of tribal parents, and even the rights of a tribal eldest son. The formation-stage and growth-stage Adams come to life through the completion-stage Adam. What does this mean? The rights of the eldest son and tribal messiahship take the form of a family that has been resurrected by Jesus. Moreover, before this is achieved, Jesus cannot resurrect the formation-stage Adam. Jesus himself cannot resurrect him.

Everyone needs and loves parents. Everyone wants to see them and be with them. But why? For what reason? It is the age difference that leads to the relationship of superior and subordinate in an orderly manner. Therefore, people should show deference, respect and dutifulness to their parents. Based on all matters of ethics and morality in social life, we should each stand in the position of a subject partner or object partner within a relationship of superior–subordinate. To become a filial son in certain respects, you should display obedience and humility, and long to meet the parents. This is the relationship of parent and child. (112-251, 1981.4.19)

Repentance

REPENTANCE IS THE FIRST STEP on the road to recovering our relationship with God and realizing our original self. Sins, attachments, and mistaken views must be acknowledged as such; then it is possible to turn away from the old life and set out on the new path of faith. Since accumulated sins and delusions form a barrier obscuring the presence of God, repentance is a condition for God to forgive the sin and eradicate illusion, that the divine Presence may once again grace the penitent’s life.
Repentance begins with words of contrition uttered in prayer—heart-felt and accompanied by tears. The forgiveness, release and insight that follow should awaken the will to make amends for previous wrongdoing and lead to changing the direction of one’s life.
Father Moon teaches that repentance goes beyond expressing remorse for one’s individual sins. People are more than just individuals; each human being contains within him or herself the fruit of history, and furthermore each represents his or her society, nation and world. Therefore we should repent for more than just our individual selves; we should repent for our ancestors’ sins, our nation’s sins, and the world’s sins. Going deeper still, when we recognize how distant we are from the divine ideal, and how much God suffers, longing to embrace us in His bosom but unable to reach our hearts, we can repent for that as well. Thus, repentance becomes a journey of self-discovery that penetrates ever deeper into the depths of the soul.

1. Recognizing Sin, Confessing Sin, and Tearful Repentance for Sin

Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.
    Matthew 3.2 Truly, God loves those who repent, and He loves those who cleanse themselves.
    Qur’an 2.222

The sacrifice acceptable to God is a broken spirit;
a broken and contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.
    Psalm 51.17

If one hides the evil, it adds and grows. If one bares it and repents, the sin dies out. Therefore all Buddhas say that the wise do not hide sin.
    Mahaparinirvana Sutra (Buddhism)

Concern over remorse and humiliation depends on the borderline. The urge to blamelessness depends on remorse.
    I Ching, Great Commentary 1.3.4 (Confucianism)

All our righteousnesses are as filthy rags.
    Isaiah 64.6

As was the will of God, so I ought to have thought;
As was the will of God, so I ought to have spoken;
As was the will of God, so I ought to have acted.
If I have not so thought, so spoken, so acted,
Then do I repent for the sin,
Do I repent by my thought, word, and deed.
Do I repent with all my heart and conscience.
    Patet 6 (Zoroastrianism)

Our transgressions are past counting,
There is no end to our sins,
Be merciful, forgive us, O Lord;
We are great sinners and wrongdoers.
There is no hope of our redemption.
O Lord, dear Lord, our deeds weighed in the balance
Would get us no place in Thy court!
Forgive us and make us one with Thyself
Through the grace of the Guru.
    Adi Granth, Shalok Vadhik, M.3, p. 1416 (Sikhism)

II question myself on my sin, O Varuna,
desirous to know it. I seek out the wise
to ask them; the sages all give me this answer,
“The God, great Varuna, is angry with you.”
What, then, O God, is my greatest transgression
for which you would ruin your singer, your friend? Tell me, O God who knows all and lacks nothing, so that, quickly prostrating, I may sinless crave pardon.
    Rig Veda 7.86.3-4 (Hinduism)

Though I seek my refuge in the true faith of the Pure Land,
Yet my heart has not been truly sincere.
Deceit and untruth are in my flesh,
And in my soul is no clear shining.
In their outward seeming all men are diligent and truth speaking,
But in their souls are greed and anger and
unjust deceitfulness,
And in their flesh do lying and cunning triumph.
Too strong for me is the evil of my heart.
I cannot overcome it.
Therefore my soul is like unto the poison of serpents;
Even my righteous deeds, being mingled with
this poison,
Must be named deeds of deceitfulness.
Shameless though I be and having no truth in my soul,
Yet the virtue of the Holy Name, the gift of
Him that is enlightened,
Is spread throughout the world through my words,
Although I am as I am.
There is no mercy in my soul.
The good of my fellow man is not dear in my eyes.
If it were not for the Ark of Mercy,
The divine promise of the Infinite Wisdom,
How should I cross the Ocean of Misery?
I, whose mind is filled with cunning and deceit
as the poison of reptiles,
Am impotent to practice righteous deeds.
If I sought not refuge in the gift of our Father,
I should die the death of the shameless.
    Shinran (Buddhism)
