Cheon Seon Gyeong 1747

Love is eternal. There cannot be two
loves that are eternal but only one. When
man and woman are bound together
through love, they should live togeth-
er in happy union while on earth until
parted by death. Even after death they
should live together eternally. Although
there are two bodies, they attain oneness
by reuniting. When the two bodies unite,
they are to revolve around God, thereby
establishing the four-position founda-
tion of love; that is the ideal world. False
love cannot invade this world, and only
true love will dwell there. (Blessing – 344)

Cheon Seong Gyeong 1191

In order to restore the right of the
eldest son, you have to go out to the
frontline where Satan persecutes you
and tries to kill you. You have to go there
in order to fight and subjugate people
with love, and teach them about every-
thing that we know. When they real-
ize that our tradition is good, they will
naturally be inspired, repent with tears;
and pledge to give their life as an offer-
ing for you. You must know that there is
no other way to obtain the right of bless-
ing from the Cain world. (131-182, 1984.5.1)

Cause and Effect

2. The Chain of Causation

The world exists because of causal actions,
all things are produced by causal actions and
all beings are governed and bound by causal
actions. They are fixed like the rolling wheel
of a cart, fixed by the pin of its axle shaft.
Sutta Nipata 654 (Buddhism)

Rousing himself from his concentration of mind,
the Exalted One gave close attention to causal
uprising in direct order:
This being, that becomes; by the arising
of this, that arises, namely: Conditioned by
ignorance, activities; conditioned by activities,
consciousness; conditioned by consciousness,
mind and body; conditioned by mind and
body, the six sense-spheres; conditioned by
the six sense-spheres, contact; conditioned by
contact, feeling; conditioned by feeling, craving;
conditioned by craving, grasping; conditioned by
grasping, becoming; conditioned by becoming,
birth; conditioned by birth, old age and death,
grief, lamentation, suffering, sorrow and despair
come into being. Thus is the arising of this mass
of Ill. 23
Udana 1.1 (Buddhism)

The ten thousand things all come from the same
seed, and with their different forms they give
place to one another. Beginning and end are part
of a single ring and no one can comprehend its
principle. This is called Heaven the Equalizer.
Chuang Tzu 27 (Taoism)

Behold, I am coming soon, bringing my recom-
pense, to repay every one for what he has done.
I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the
last, the beginning and the end.
Revelation 22.12-13

Teachings of Rev. Sun Myung Moon

In everything, there is cause and effect. The effect appears as the result of a process. Passing through that process is a condition for the effect to become one with its cause. This is because the process is aligned with the cause and accepts the effect. It brings them to the point where they can unite and fulfill their purpose. Conversely, without a proper beginning, there can be no destination. (15:130, October 3, 1965)

The relationship between the world of essence and the world of phenomena can be compared to that between mind and body. It is a relationship of cause and result. (Exposition of the Divine Principle, Introduction)

God abides in the causal realm and in the resultant world. He is “the Alpha and the Omega,” who exists as both the cause and the result.
By recognizing that human beings exist within a process that moves from cause to result, we can understand the relationship between God and humanity. History proceeds from the causal world to the resultant world. The human conscience also proceeds along this path, but [these days] the flow of history is so fast that the conscience must hurry twice as quickly to keep pace.
God, being the Cause, must establish human beings as the result. If [the first] human beings had not fallen, they would have been the cause of history. The Fall was a failure to possess the cause. (11:114, February 19, 1961)

Just as subject and object partners must become one, the cause and the result must also become one. In the Bible, God states: “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.” If God is the Alpha, we human beings are the Omega. If God is the first, we are the last, and if God is the beginning, then we are the end. Should the two remain separated? The verse promises that they are to unite. (69:76, October 20, 1973)

Anyone who denies the Origin cannot bring a result. The origin of all children is their [Heavenly] Parent, but if the children deny their Parent, it is logical that they cannot become an acceptable result. When the cause and the result become one, the ideal appears, full of joy. (328:185, August 3, 2000)

When a man connects with his wife in all aspects of her life [and vice-versa], the two become one. First they orbit around each other; then they meet. When they meet, they are elevated. In other words, a man and a woman meet together by living for the sake of each other. Then, once they marry, they should sacrifice for God. We call this origin-division-union action. God divided people into two different sexes for love; therefore they should come together for love. Thus, their union should also be the unity of cause and result. Where the cause and the result became one, there can be a seed. Thus there arises an endless cycle of give and take between cause and result. Their oneness is the basis for a unified world. (389:303, August 7, 2002)

Matthew 6

After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

10 Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

11 Give us this day our daily bread.

12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.

Psalm 24

Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.

Who is this King of glory? The Lord strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle.

Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.

10 Who is this King of glory? The Lord of hosts, he is the King of glory. Selah.

Hosea 7

And they consider not in their hearts that I remember all their wickedness: now their own doings have beset them about; they are before my face.

Chapter 2

Cause and Effect

Teachings of Rev. Sun Myung Moon

In order for life to be sustained centering on this body, all the different parts must engage in give and take action as subject and object partners. If everything engaged in this action does what it is sup-posed to do, then the physical body will function smoothly, and existence will continue. But what happens when this is blocked somewhere?
This universe protects anything that engages in give and take in accord with God’s ideal. If an opposing element appears, something becomes lacking, or there is a blockage, there will be a failure within that realm of interaction. Hence, in order to protect the universe, there will be a reaction to expel it. This reaction is not a bad thing. It may be seen as something bad, but it truly functions to protect the larger realm.

For example, if your stomach hurts, it means there is a blockage in a circuit of give and take action between some subject and object partner. The blockage causes it to be pushed away to the same extent as it is blocked. A cosmic force to push it out acts on the stomach, and it hurts. All you need to do is open the place that is blocked, and you will feel fine.
Likewise, the world of our conscience and the entire human world are in pain. Why? There are elements that do not meet the standards of the cosmic force, and the universe is trying to push them out. Hence, we feel pain in our conscience. While the conscience was going in the proper direction, something stood opposing it and blocked the conscience’s function. We experience a reaction, resulting in pain. If the problem is not solved, that reaction will send the person into hell. (165:176-77, May 20, 1987)

The law of cause and effect cannot be avoided in history. America is an extension of Great Britain… thus America is in a position to indemnify what Britain did wrong in history. What did Britain do when she colonized Asia, especially China? She killed countless Asians through pushing the opium trade. Britain adopted that policy to dominate the Chinese and profit off of them, while totally unconcerned that whole populations became helpless addicts. Someone today has to indemnify that sin. Americans, especially American youth, should indemnify that historical debt; otherwise young people here will be plagued by drugs as a result. (105:134, October 4, 1979)

God abhors sin, and misuse of love is the sin God abhors the most. God regards sinners who com-mit such transgressions and do not repent as His enemies, and He visits them with destruction. It is the Principle that whoever indulges in illicit love will perish. In Italy, the lustful and immoral city of Pompeii was destroyed by instant calamity. Sodom and Gomorrah perished under the same law. The Roman Empire once prevailed in the world with unparalleled power, but it collapsed for the same reason. From the vantage point of history, America today is on the same path. Unless it repents for its violations of the law of God’s love, it too will perish. (104:141, April 29, 1979)

I was involved in the underground resistance movement against Japanese imperial rule, and from that perspective the Japanese were my enemies. They were the enemies of the Korean people in gen-eral and my enemies in particular. Yet, after Japan was defeated at the end of World War II, I loved the Japanese. Some time earlier, certain Japanese policemen had arrested me for my activities in the resistance and tortured me severely. When the war ended I could have reported them, and they all would have been executed. Yet, when I came across those same policemen running for their lives, I helped them escape to safety.
Do you know why so many young people in Japan place their eternal lives in my hands and pledge their loyalty to me? It is because there is a principle of cause and effect, which dictates that they must return what was given. (True Family and World Peace, February 10, 2000)

Cheon Seong Gyeong 487

Many people oppose Rev. Moon, the
man who goes to America to educate and
train American young people, even stay-
ing up all night and sometimes dancing,
singing, and having fun with them? I do
this in order to expand the realm of sup-
port that is connected to me.
Because the expansion of the uni-
versal realm of support starts with me,
I push forward without fear, even if I am
opposed and have to go to prison.

Cheong Seong Gyeong 963

If your grandparents, mother and
father, couple, and children, become one
based on true love, and inherit God’s
true love that lives for others, then even
God would be absolutely obedient to
that. In the world that strives to live for
others – a world that moves according
to the love that submits to the tradition
of living for others – the basis for peace
would surely emerge even if it resisted
being formed. (210-354, 1990.12.27)

World Scripture and the Teachings of
Sun Myung Moon

Chapter 2

Cause and Effect

The maxim that a person reaps what he has sown, belief in divine retribution, and the doctrine of karma, are diverse expressions of a common idea: that the world is governed by justice. Religions give various teachings regarding the specific manner in which justice is meted out, e.g. through one’s fate in this life, by reincarnation, or in the afterlife. Yet all agree that one way or another, justice will be served. It is inherent in the nature of the universe, as designed by a benevolent Creator, that good deeds be rewarded and evil deeds punished. This is the principle of cause and effect.
The principle of cause and effect bears the same ambiguous relationship to Ultimate Reality as divine law generally. In the eastern religions the principle of justice is inherent in the fabric of the cosmos and is therefore subordinate to the ultimate goal of liberation. Karma and the wheel of samsara display the operation of cause and effect, yet these are part of the hellishness of human existence and have nothing to do with the ultimate goal of Nirvana and Enlightenment, where the cycle of rebirth is broken. On the other hand, the monotheistic religions portray God as the divine Judge who visits punishments upon the guilty to maintain justice. Nevertheless, it is not the Heavenly Father’s purpose to act as a judge against His children; rather with love and truth He guides them on the path to salvation. Therefore, as Father Moon does, we can ascribe God’s judgments to the operation of His creation, a cosmos that is designed to administer justice through the operation of cosmic law.
The passages in this chapter describe two aspects of cause and effect. First is the aspect of justice: people reap what they sow. Father Moon draws instances of this principle not only in the lives of individuals, but also from the history of nations and races, who collectively have committed sins that must bear requital. Even World Scripture II V8 013107.ind85 85 2/1/2007 3:13:51 PM 86 World Scripture and the Teachings of Sun Myung Moon though this world seems to tolerate injustice and permit wrongs to go unpunished, scriptures assert that the ultimate individual recompense is in the afterlife, where he or she is destined either for heaven or hell. Here Father Moon’s teachings give a deeper explanation for why sinners are destined for hell, not by the decree of any angelic judge but by the conditions they made for themselves during earthly life.
Second, there are passages on cause and effect as a universal principle that operates in the growth and completion of all beings. We learn that the effect is not separate from the cause; rather, they are closely tied together. The core Buddhist doctrine of Dependent Origination expresses the negative of this idea, as ignorance develops through a causal chain to the whole human condition of suffering (dhukka). A Taoist text puts it positively, that cause and effect form a circuit, the movement of Heaven. Father Moon teaches that God is immanent in the world, working everywhere as the cause and revealing Himself in human beings as the effect. Ultimately, God and humans, cause and effect, are to be united as the Alpha and the Omega—through love.

1. We Reap the Consequences of Our Actions

Do not be deceived; God is not mocked, for
whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.
Galatians 6.7

Whatever affliction may visit you is for what
your own hands have earned.
Qur’an 42.30

All who take the sword will perish by the
Matthew 26.52

Suffering is the offspring of violence—realize
this and be ever vigilant.
Acarangasutra 3.13 (Jainism)

Ashes fly back in the face of him who throws
Yoruba Proverb (African Traditional Religions)
They sow the wind, and they will reap the
Hosea 8.7

An ignorant man committing evil deeds does
not realize the consequences.
The imprudent man is consumed by his own
deeds, like one burnt by fire.
Dhammapada 136 (Buddhism)

Unto God belongs the sequel of all things.
Qur’an 31.22

God is not hornless;
He is horned:
He exacts punishment for every deed.
Ovambo Proverb (African Traditional Religions)

Unrighteousness, practiced in this world, does
not at once produce its fruit; but, like a cow,
advancing slowly, it cuts off the roots of him
who committed it.
Laws of Manu 4.172 (Hinduism)

There are no special doors for calamity and hap-
piness [in men’s lot]; they come as men them-
selves call them. Their recompenses follow good
and evil as the shadow follows the substance.
Treatise on Response and Retribution 1 (Taoism)

Not in the sky, nor in mid-ocean, nor in a moun-
tain cave, is found that place on earth where
abiding one may escape from the consequences
of one’s evil deed.
Dhammapada 127 (Buddhism)

The net of Heaven is cast wide. Though the
mesh is not fine, yet nothing ever slips through.
Tao Te Ching 73 (Taoism)

Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to
the wrath of God; for it is written, “Vengeance is
mine, I will repay, says the Lord.”
Romans 12.19

Let not their conduct grieve you, who run eas-
ily to disbelief, for lo! they injure God not at all.
It is God’s will to assign them no portion in the
hereafter, and theirs will be an awful doom.
And let not those who disbelieve imagine
that the rein We give them bodes good for their
souls. We only give them rein that they may
grow in sinfulness. And theirs will be a shameful
Qur’an 3.176, 178

Everything is given on pledge, and a net is
spread for all the living; the shop is open; and
the dealer gives credit; and the ledger lies open;
and the hand writes; and whosoever wishes to
borrow may come and borrow; but the collec-
tors regularly make their daily round, and exact
payment from man whether he be content or
not; and they have that whereon they can rely
in their demand; and the judgment is a judg-
ment of truth; and everything is prepared for
the feast.
Mishnah, Avot 3.20 (Judaism)

Further, as Heaven and Earth are the greatest
of things, it is natural, from the point of view
of universal principles, that they have spiritual
power. Having spiritual power it is proper that
they reward good and punish evil. Nevertheless
their expanse is great and their net is wide-
meshed. There is not necessarily an immediate
response as soon as this net is set in operation.
Pao-p’u Tzu 21 (Taoism)

Holy, then, did I recognize Thee, O Wise Lord.
I perceived Thee foremost at the birth of life,
When Thou didst endow acts and words with
Bad unto bad, good blessing unto holy,
Through Thy wisdom, at the final goal of life!
Avesta, Yasna 43.5 (Zoroastrianism)

According as one acts, according as one con-
ducts himself, so does he become. The doer of
good becomes good. The doer of evil becomes
evil. One becomes virtuous by virtuous action,
bad by bad action.
But people say, “A person is made [not of
acts, but] of desires only.” [I say,] as his desire,
such is his resolve; as is his resolve, such the
action he performs; what action he performs,
that he procures for himself. On this point there
is this verse,
Where one’s mind is attached—the inner
goes thereto with action, being attached to
it alone.
Obtaining the end of his action,
whatever he does in this world,
he comes again from that world
to this world of action. 22
So the mind that desires.
Brihadaranyaka Upanishad 4.4.5-6 (Hinduism)
