Through serving in the family and
respecting your parents, you become
children of filial piety. In the same way,
when you attend and live for the king of
your nation, you become patriots, and if
you live for all humankind, you become
saints. So you should realize how much
the dimension of a holy child differs
from yours. In order for you to change,
you must make revolutionary changes in
yourselves and ascend through numer-
ous levels. (293-211, 1998.5.26)

Cheon Seong Gyeong 1241

When you see power lines extend-
ing to remote parts of the land, you can
see that they hang loosely between poles.
Nevertheless, if you pull from one end,
the lines become taut. In the same way,
when your children receive great love
from Heaven, even if you’re sagging,
you’ll be pulled up just like the power
lines. You receive benefit in this way.

World Scripture and the Teachings of
Sun Myung Moon

Chapter 4

Health and Disease

4. Good Hygiene

Nothing is to be found that can substitute for
exercise in any way… Exercise will expel the
harm done by most of the bad regimens that
most men follow. Not all motion is exercise.
Exercise is powerful or rapid motion or a com-
bination of both, vigorous motion which alters
breathing and increases its rate.
Maimonides, Mishneh Torah (Judaism)

Diseases caused by over-eating are cured by
fasting; those caused by starvation are cured by
feeding up. Diseases caused by exertion are cured
by rest; those caused by indolence are cured by
exertion. To put it briefly: the physician should
treat disease by the principle of opposition to
the cause of the disease according to its form.

Those children who are nourished by their
mother’s milk enjoy the most appropriate and
natural food.

Teachings of Rev. Sun Myung Moon

Are you doing exercises in the morning? Some might say, “Why should I? I am still tired, and I need my rest.” However, those who do not make efforts to keep their health will gradually grow infirm. It is the law of nature. (380:164, June 7, 2002)

Whenever my physical condition is poor, I know how to improve it with exercise and massage. For instance, if I feel an ache in my lower back, I massage it like this—a sort of acupuncture. If I examine myself, I can tell what is wrong with my body. I’ve trained myself to manage my health. (203:176, June 23, 1990)

Before you love God directly, you should love the food you eat, love material, all things, and your body from head to toe. Through loving all things, you come to love your body, because your body absorbs the elements of all things. (138:99, January 19, 1986)

Appreciate the grass growing in the earth, made by Heavenly Father’s hands. Fresh air is far more fragrant than any man-made perfume. Anyone who knows the taste of fresh air, sunshine and clean water, will not get sick. If we live with a heart to appreciate nature, we shall remain always healthy. (9:177, May 8, 1960)

If you want to be healthy, you should love people, giving and forgetting what you have given con-tinually. People who live this way will be happy and enjoy their life during their sojourn on earth. (331:23, August 23, 2000
