True Love Is the Center

    If the son advises and teaches his parents to love their country so that they become patriots, and makes them a mother and father whom heaven remembers, is he a filial or unfilial son?
    So, rather than a son who says to his parents, “Mom, Dad, don’t go out! Just rest at home.” he should say, “Mom, Dad, what are you doing? Please, let’s try together to find even one more person who can be a patriot, who can work for the unification of North and South Korea, who can work to save North Korea.” Then he makes them shed tears, blood and sweat. Then what would you think if the people in the neighborhood were to praise this achievement?
    Would the parents say, “You scoundrel, you really made your mother and father’s life difficult, so at first we thought you were a bad boy. Yet we became successful and are praised by everyone. My! You really are a filial son.” Do you think the parents would say this, or would they say, “You are an unfilial son”? What do you think? (209-266, 1990.11.30)

    Today, there are four billion people living on earth, but in the spirit world there are hundreds of billions of souls. The question is how this world and the spirit world, which we consider the subject, are connected. Are they connected through what we consider valuable on earth, such as material, knowledge or position? That cannot be it.
    That is because the spirit world is a world that transcends the material world. It transcends the world of knowledge. Since it transcends time and space, it is a world where yesterday’s joy can become today’s, and today’s joy can become tomorrow’s.
    In this light, that essential world does not move based on the things that we who live on earth today need or value. What is important is: what is the center of everything of value within life in the spirit world?

No one understands what the consequences of the Fall have been for this world. Only I understand it. For this reason, unless I set birthdays by the lunar calendar of the East, there won’t be a place where people can breathe on an eternal foundation of Sabbath rest. The level horizontal is born by breathing, alternately becoming larger and smaller.

A line is something that connects two entities. On the line that connects a subject and object partner, what does everything do to bring them closer to each other? What is it that pushes them in the direction of the center? You need to understand: the only thing capable of this is the force of true love. The force of true love.

When a man and woman are far apart, each puts himself or herself first, saying, “Man is number one,” or “Woman is number one.” Don’t you realize that you say this because you are fallen? You say, “I am a man; I am number one.” “I am a woman; I am number one.” Don’t you do that?

What are man and woman? The man can say that he is the best, but if he is alone, he cannot breathe. The woman if she is by herself also cannot breathe. The man cannot rise up if he is alone; the woman cannot rise up if she is alone. Yet when this is reversed, everything becomes possible. If one partner goes out, the other stays at home. Is what the partner at home does important? Inside and outside are both necessary. Left and right are both necessary.

Because this concept is absent, human beings live ignorant of the fundamental basis of scholarship and culture, and cannot grasp why they are deficient. It is the True Parents who come and teach this for the first time.

What happens to entities that are separated from each other? Where are they separated? Where is the source of their separation? People have not known that the separation began with lineage.

Do you Westerners understand lineage? No, you don’t understand how important lineage is. Do you Western people understand blood lineage? All you know about is a man and woman becoming husband and wife. Now even your conjugal bonds are in ruins, so you disregard your sons and daughters and ignore your ancestors.

What’s this about individualism? You will be struck by lightning. What’s this about white supremacy? Let’s hear you justify it if you can. Obama is now the President, and so black supremacy will appear. Until a central body based on the true love of True Parents appears, the universe cannot become one, and everything is perishing.

God gave the judgment of fire to Sodom and Gomorrah, but today it only takes a command to detonate an atom bomb or a hydrogen bomb. Evil people will say, “I couldn’t care less,” and act without making any distinction between friends and enemies. If someone says, “I don’t care who dies,” and pushes the button firing a hydrogen bomb, humankind will be destroyed.

How do we bring a fundamental solution to this extremely dangerous situation? The error lies in the concept of “absolute” faith. What happens where there is an erroneous concept of faith? True absolute faith is about doing as the absolute God does. Absolute faith does not exist apart from absolute love! There can be no love in a setting where people act in faith, but with disregard for the object and subject partners of love.

What does absolute obedience mean? What do a man and woman do in order to make love happen? The man recognizes the value of the woman as an absolute being, and the woman recognizes the value of the man as an absolute being.

Without practicing absolute faith, absolute love and absolute obedience, a person casts away his own body. He removes himself from the place where he can disregard his own value so as to go up or go down with ease. Being unable to go down and become smaller, he cannot go up and become bigger. Instead, he would do better to think that he himself does not exist. He needs to dwell without any attachment to “I.”

Do we seek to die or to live? The basis for whether we die or live can only be true love, God’s true love, which is capable of taking control over the moment. How can there be a basis for existence when this love is ignored?

What is it that enables God to say that He is the Alpha and Omega, the Cause and the Effect? What is it about God that makes Him both cause and effect? If He were to cease to exist, there would be no cause, and no process. What is the central point of the Alpha and Omega? It is not man. It is not woman. It is not even God. It is not True Parents. It is true love.
