By cutting off the wild olive tree at the base and engrafting the true olive tree on to it, all wild olive trees will disappear. The field where they used to be will become a field of true olive trees. Now that I am ready to carry out this task, many are raising uproar. They are scared of the pain they will feel when their bodies are cut off at the roots. They are worried that I may be an incompetent gardener. The spring of providential history has come and with it the task of engrafting the sprouts on to the wild olive trees has begun. (Blessed Family – 510)

What is the occasion of the Blessing? It is the very best place in the entire world. With whom should you establish a relationship at the place of Blessing? You cannot perfect yourself on your own. You are perfected through True Parents’ love. When a child is born from its parents’ bosom, regardless of whether it is good-looking or not, the child takes after its parents. In the same way, in the Unification Church, members are taught the way of the true parent. For you, that is the greatest blessing of all blessings. (35-236, 1970.10.19)
True Family; Gateway to Heaven
The Love of Man and Woman
in the Original Creation
Section 7. Love Is Realized in a Completely
This is a story from my youth. One day, I caught a pair of birds
and tried to make them kiss each other’s beaks. To see them kiss I
put them in a cage, fed them, and watched them. I did it out of a
child’s desire to see them love each other and sing happily
together. This was an experiment, out of curiosity, to understand
the principles of nature. I continued this experiment, which I now
understand to have been quite naughty. It was only after a long
while that I finally understood that love is realized only in a
natural setting. Sincere love is realized naturally, in an atmosphere
that is natural to the highest degree. Through a long journey of
experiments I came to the correct understanding of love. (Blessed

When someone loses love, will having a university education help
him to regain love? He will only accumulate knowledge, become
individualistic, and come to worship materialism. Just as Korean
bean soup tastes right only when it is served in a thick Korean
bowl, character training can reach its purpose only when it is
based on love.
The flower of world civilization should blossom on the basis of
artistic harmony. In this sense, roasted ribs should be served on a
heavy platter and Korean bean paste soup should be served in a
thick, Korean earthenware bowl to bring out their proper tastes.
Once you have become used to the rough, deep, and refreshing
taste of Korean bean paste soup, you will never forget it no matter
where you may go.
Likewise, once people have become used to the earthy, deep,
relaxing taste of love, they will not change. Just as one easily tires
of instant foods that are usually heavily sweetened, if one could
obtain love easily and anywhere like instant food, we would be
unable to call it true love. (Blessed Family – 353)
There are people everywhere today who taste love as if they were
eating instant food. This is the problem. Love does not deepen
because you bathe in a fragrant bath. I would say that the love of a
couple living in the countryside that washes themselves in cold water
before going to bed is purer, longer lasting, and ever deepening. A
couple that has to brush their teeth before kissing is not experiencing
natural love. The toothpaste smell will prevent them from tasting the
unique smell of the other. When I look at people who brush their
teeth before kissing, I don’t know whether they are trying to taste love
or taste toothpaste. (Blessed Family – 353)
When you meet with someone you like and love, you want to
embrace and kiss that person. This is a natural instinct between
the sexes. You can think you are meeting your partner in order to
love your surroundings — the universe. Finding a partner and
establishing a relationship is a natural human behavior.
When man relates to woman and woman relates to man under the
ideal of partnership, there will be no acts or incidents that violate
the order of love. The true order of love emerges only when man
and woman meet on the basis of the ideal of partnership. (Blessed
