#143-Conflicts of Interest Corrupt Our Government

When you enter the spirit world, you will not need to farm but rather you will 834 Book 6 • Our Life and the Spiritual Realm just eat and be at leisure. Then how will you enjoy yourself? You have to think about this. Do you think you would become bored? How would you enjoy your life if you were not involved in any disputes? How can you enjoy life without something that you would never tire of, even in a thousand years, something you would enjoy touching and listening to for thousands of years, even for billions of years? Food, you can eat everyday. Spirit world is a place where you easily can find anything you wish to eat and do anything you like. (279-21, 1996.6.9)

Because you received the precious thing called the Blessing, the door is open for you, but you cannot enter because you are not dressed in formal attire. You must go to the banquet house in formal attire. Can a groomsman go to a wedding in work clothes? Think about it. You have to dress appropriately for the occasion in order to go there and be welcomed into that environment. Otherwise you will be thrown out. People will say to you, “Get lost, blockhead!”

Our Course of Life
Centered on Love
Section 1. Why Are Human Beings Born?
If we ask ourselves whether life or love is first, we can claim each
to be first. But which do you think really comes first? It is love that
comes first. Relating this to the core of the universe, in order for
something to have value, there must be an original flow of love.
When we examine where life comes from, we must ask the
question as to which comes first, life or love. Until now we have
not been able to discern this clearly. Love comes first, then life.
Because what comes second must meekly surrender to what
comes first, it is natural that we offer our lives for the sake of love.
This is the way things are. This then provides an answer as to the
true course for our life. Since our life is born in love, the
conclusion is that we must walk the way of love and die for love.
The purpose of human life is to find the love that the macrocosm,
not the microcosm, is able to welcome. It is to be born, to love and
to die in the midst of the great universal love that God, creation,
our parents, and the angelic world all acknowledge. This is how I
see it. (Blessed Family – 1062)
Human beings are not born based on their own choice. Then, are
they born due to their parents’ wishes? No. They are born due to
God’s desire. They are born through the love of their parents,
which represents God’s love. The person, who is born as a new life
through parental love, representing God’s love, is I. Love has the
power to create everything. The one who is born as the center of
the whole universe by receiving all the love of the universe is none
other than I. The highest purpose of life is to be born through
love, be raised in love, live by love, and to leave love behind. The
most valuable thing to do is to fulfill, in the family, the rules of
love that lie at the center of the universe. (Blessed Family – 1062)
You should understand why human beings are born. They are not
born for the sake of knowledge or political power. They are born
because of love and from love. Then what makes love so great? It
is the fact that love is the original source of life. You are born in
the midst of your parents’ love.
You are not born out of your parents’ desire for money or
knowledge. Since you are born in love like this, you should bear
fruits of love. This is why you need children. A husband and wife
become complete when they become one and have sons and
daughters as their object partners. (Blessed Family – 1062)
Human beings cannot exist apart from love. Therefore, we can say that
“I” live on the foundation of love. All things also originate in God’s love.
The existence of all things began on the foundation of love, so it is
undeniable that human beings, as the center of the created universe,
must also have begun in love. (Blessed Family – 1062)
Since human beings begin in love and mature through love, they cannot
live separated from the standard of love. (Blessed Family -1062)
