We are bound together by the destiny resulting from the unfolding history of God’s providence, in which He has been pursuing His long-cherished goal of dissolving the anguish He has accumulated over six millennia. Accordingly, even though we have different surnames, we should live with greater love than blood brothers and sisters.
Although you are attending parents who are not your natural parents, you are the people that seek to attend the Parents, centering on God, even more sincerely than you would your natural parents. On top of that, despite having our own country, we are the people that seek to live for the sake of God’s nation with loyalty, filial piety, and virtue. (47- 81, 1971.8.19)
Now the final time has come. Parents must find “my country.” To do that, all Blessed Families are to stand in a circle horizontally around Father and Mother and represent them by progressively fulfilling the duties of filial children, patriots, saints, and divine children. You will thereupon occupy those positions and proceed to observe the laws of the palace and uphold the laws of God’s nation. You should understand that the Heavenly Constitution actually begins through us. This is what “my country” means. (197-87, 1990.1.7)

I also needed to surmount twelve peaks after crossing over ten at first. The Blessing of 3.6 Million Couples is the twelfth peak. We must surmount them all. In the song ‘Arirang’, the word ‘arirang’ is a composite of ‘Ae,’ meaning love, ‘Ri,’ meaning village, and ‘Ryeong’ meaning hill. I understand that the word signifies the search for the village you love. In the song, the lyrics go on to say, “If you leave me, you won’t have gone ten ri (about 2.5 miles) before you become footsore.” That song also mentions the twelve peaks of arirang. At present, I am undergoing all manner of hardship to cross over the twelfth peaks. After this is accomplished, everything will be equalized, and we will all be able to go anywhere we wish.

True Family Gateway to Heaven
Rev. Sun Myung Moon
The Family Is the Model for the
Kingdom of Heaven
Section 5. The Family Brings Together the Love
of Three Generations
The family encompasses history, the present and the future. So
what is the ultimate point that God has sought for six thousand
years? It is the family — the family where love is interconnected
and where all are united in love. Everything that exists comes
under its dominion.
We cannot cut our relationship with this absolute source of love.
The establishment of such a family was the original mission that
God gave Adam and Eve at the time of creation. God did not want
them to merely end up as a man, Adam, and a woman, Eve, but
instead dreamed of a new family where they would be united. This
is the first starting point towards establishing men and women.
Thus to be able to enter the Kingdom of Heaven safely, you have
to find a family and within the realm of that family in this world,
enter and live in a place where you can feel satisfied in God’s love.
Only then can you go beyond this world as well. (30-85,
In order to form the family realm of love you have to be
unconditional. The parents represent the past, the husband and
wife represent the present, and the children represent the future.
Loving one partner during your lifetime is the equivalent to God
loving the world. It is a place where in oneness the parents, a
couple, and the children offer their love as an example
representing heaven and earth and tell their descendants to follow
them. The original homeland of the heart, the place where
heavenly affection is felt will be remembered in heaven and earth.
What has God been looking for up until now? He has not been
seeking a subject partner; rather He has been looking for an ideal
object partner. He has been looking for those who resemble God
What is the starting point that leads to such a result? It is the
family. There is nothing that can represent the universe better
than the family. To be one with the parents is for past and present
to meet. Here, you can love the past by loving your parents, love
the present by loving your partner, and love the future by loving
your children. Therefore, you can deeply experience the love of
three generations. The place where these three kinds of love are
concentrated is the family. (30-80, 1970.3.17)
Then where does life in the Kingdom of Heaven begin? It is the
family. It does not unfold somewhere else. The Kingdom of
Heaven is just a three-dimensional expansion of the family and
not something that goes beyond the family realm. Therefore when
you embrace your husband or wife, you should think that this is a
man of the world becoming one with a woman of the world. The
place where you can make the condition of having loved mankind
is none other than the family.
You should live your life this way. To love your parents is to
connect history with the present and to pave the road for God to
come to you. Therefore you have to love your parents. To love
your parents is to connect the human beings of history with
yourself as an inhabitant of the present, that is to unite the past
and the present. Furthermore loving your children centering on
yourself is to connect the present with the future. And the
philosophy that practices and sings the praise of such love for a
thousand and tens of thousands of years is Unification thought.
