The longer you take to achieve this, the longer your ancestors will have to wait, tapping their feet impatiently in the spirit world, and exclaiming, “You dimwits! What’s taking you so long?” They want to be liberated as soon as possible, and so the liberation of the realm of the archangel will take place quickly. Since we are blessing the realm of the archangel on earth, we should also bless those in the spirit world. That is why as soon as we have accomplished the Blessing of 3.6 million couples, I can bequeath to Heung-jin and Dae Mo Nim the power to bless those in the spirit world. (284-164, 1997.4.16)

When God began creation, do you think He started by first creating the color He liked the most or the color He disliked the most? If that’s the question, then what color is the flower that blooms in early spring? It is a purple color. The color purple includes red and pink, and what other colors? It has all the colors in it. You like the color purple, don’t you? Elegant things are in purple. In the spirit world, the most beautiful color is purple. (197-49, 1990.1.7)

Our Course of Life
Centered on Love

Section 8. Earthly Life is Training to be in
Rhythm with the Spirit World

I have a depth of spiritual experience. The spirit world is a place
enveloped in the elements of love. On the earth, we breathe air,
but in the spirit world, people live by inhaling love. The love you
share in the spirit world is not secular human love but true love.
(145.267, 1986.5.15)

When you go to spirit world, you will find that those who have fully
loved their parents, brothers and sisters, spouse, and children — that
is, those who have experienced deep love in their family life — will
be able to enjoy great freedom. They can go everywhere without
restriction. Conversely, those in the spirit world who have no
experience of love are narrow-minded; they find themselves isolated
and alone, with no freedom whatsoever. The love between parents
and children is a vertical relationship, the love between husband
and wife is a horizontal relationship, and the love among brothers
and sisters is a relationship that circles and surrounds.

These three relationships differ from one another. Therefore, only
when you experience deep love through these three mutually
distinct interactions on earth can you circulate freely vertically,
horizontally, and in a circle. Those who have not tasted parental
love because their parents died early are in a rather tragic position
because they are missing an important experience of love.
Likewise, those who have not experienced the conjugal love
relationship of husband and wife as well as love in the family,
become poor people in the spirit world because they lack a crucial
experience of life. Those who have no brothers and sisters will also
be in a poor position in the spirit world because they lack this
experience. (Blessed Family – 1062)

The reason to marry is to deeply experience parental love, conjugal
love, and children’s love. We need these experiences because the
spirit world is filled with the air of such love. You need to have a
family to train yourself to be in rhythm with the spirit world. Those
who go to the spirit world without these experiences of love cannot
follow the rhythm there. They will be as one without a nose to
inhale such air of love. (Blessed Family -1062)

You are born from your father and mother. What is more
fundamental is the fact that you are born from God by having
borrowed your mother’s womb. You find true parents through the
universal parents and through your physical parents. Your
physical parents are temporary, so the moment of your death is a
time of jubilation when you go to meet the True Parents. The true
love of the true parents is there. This is the Kingdom of Heaven in
heaven, where the atmosphere is composed of love and filled with
parental love. That love is not for me; it is a love that is in keeping
with the unilateral law under the principle of service and sacrifice.
In accord with this principle, you must love the universe and
humankind. Your life on earth is the training ground for the
development of such love. (105-108, 1979.9.30)

How important is your life on earth? You only live it once. It is a
short moment that only comes once. When compared to eternal
life, the earthly life is but a point. It is too short a moment. At this
moment, we must go beyond our physical life and make
preparation for the spirit world. (207-99, 1990.11.1)

Those who were blessed but failed to take part in registration are just the same as Adam’s family that fell. When you enter the spirit world a prison on the heavenly side will be created. The middle sphere of spirit world will be created. A paradise for Blessed Families will be created. Lee Sang-hun’s testimonies these days have become representative of the spirit world. Even in the middle sphere, those who have sinned must walk around with nametags indicating their earthly sins. They must be sanctioned according to how much they have deviated from the ninety-degree angle. No allowances will be made. Deviation has to be rectified even by force. Jagged parts should be cut off and made smooth. If this does not happen, they must be isolated in places like the North and South Poles. An age like this will come. You will see in the future. The spirit world is made that way. (300-158, 1999.3.3)

God’s ideal of creation is to establish absolute couples. Absolute couples are established when they live, not for themselves but for each other, based on the absolute sexual organs. They came into being for the creation. Each was created for the sake of the other, not for themselves. Men were endowed with sexual organs for the sake of women. The female organs exist for the sake of men. They were created for the men. Those who use their sexual organs according to Satan’s desires, and do not follow the way of the Principle will go to hell. On the other hand, if you live for the sake of others centering on absolute love, you will enter God’s dominion. You will become members of the imperial household of heaven. (280-70, 1996.11.1)

What kind of fortune should a person in the child’s position
receive? They should inherit the fortune of the grandparents and
parents. Why does one need grandparents? We need grandparents
because they represent the living history of the past. The parents
represent the present and the children symbolize the future.
Children contain east and west and also north and south. They are
also the center of the whole. The center of the grandparents, the
center of the parents, the center of the children and the center of
God — all these are founded on true love.

The church is a holy place that connects heaven and earth. It is a gate to the world, enabling people to interact in relationships of cooperation, and is a spiritual pillar for the well-being of the nation. As the source of spiritual life, the church supplies strength in your daily life. (The Way of the Spiritual Leader – 238)

If such work could have been done, despite Jesus’ death, Christianity would not have needed to sacrifice as it did until now. Yet there has been no other way. Why? Jesus had to go to the other world and return because, within the realm of True Parents’ heart, separation from Satan could not be done within the realm of dominion based on accomplishments through the Principle; and because the foundation of love was not established within the realm of direct dominion.

Section 3. A Training Ground of Love for Entering
the Kingdom of Love

God’s will is to realize the kingdom of love. If God’s will is to
develop and globalize the ideal world of love, the family is the
experimental ground where you earn credits, all the way from an
elementary school certificate to a bachelor’s degree and PhD. The
family expands to the world. If you look at the world carefully,
you will see that it is a world where grandfathers and
grandmothers live, a world where adults like your uncles and
aunts live, a world where people like your elder brothers and elder
sisters live, a world where youths live, and a world where children
live. So these places where old, middle-aged, young people and
children live are larger expansions of the family. (147-281,

The family is the smallest unit within the training center and is
also a textbook for entering the Kingdom of Heaven. It has all the
levels: the grandfather’s level, mother’s level, couple’s level and
sibling’s level. These levels expand into larger groups of
grandmothers and grandfathers, mothers and fathers, your own
peers, and your sons and daughters, and together they form

Only families that can love all human beings as their own spouses
and as their own parents, and serve them as their own sons and
daughters, can inherit the Kingdom of Heaven. This is amazing.
The right to inherit all the power and authority of heaven and
earth created by God lies here. (143-285, 1986.3.20)

The family is a textbook of love through which at the time of
death you receive the right to be registered at the Palace of Peace
and the Kingdom of Heaven. The family is a training ground of
love. The extension of this family is the world. The world is made
up of smaller worlds: there is a grandfathers’ world, a
grandmothers’ world, a world of fathers and mothers, there are
husbands’ and wives’ worlds and sons’ and daughters’ worlds.
When these combine we have the whole world.

Thus if you love the people of the whole world as you love your
family and as you love God through the family, this will make a
straight road to the Kingdom of Heaven. Thus the first
commandment is, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your
heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.” And the
second commandment is, “You shall love your neighbor as
yourself.” If you love God and love humanity, everything will be
accomplished. If you cannot do it, your spiritual training will have
been in vain. No matter how great a religion’s spiritual discipline
may be, if it does not know how to love God, humankind and the
whole universe it will fail the test.

In the family you should deeply experience love by going through
the official course of the training center which is an encapsulation
of the whole universe and then expand this and love the world.
You have inherited this from your family, your training ground,
where you were raised with your mother and father. Therefore if
you love your parents more than your wife, love your sons and
daughters more than your wife, love humanity more than your
wife, and love God more than your wife, everything will be
accomplished. This doesn’t mean that you should abandon your
wife. If you love in this way, all the recipients of that love will
come to love your wife as well. Is there a more glorious place than
this? If you want to love your wife, follow this way. (143-285,

The family is an encapsulation of history. It is connected to history, with its origin in God. You inherit the family vertically. However, inheritance must take place in a perfectly vertical manner, at a ninety degree angle. The grandfather and grandmother, representing God, have already inherited this. (216-262, 1991.4.7)

Cheon Seong Gyeong 445

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 and possess the inner and outer aspects of the world He created. 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)

Section 2. The Family is the Textbook of Love
Through Which We Can Connect with Universal

What is the universe? Everything in the created world is designed
as a sort of training aid to help God’s beloved sons and daughters
find the ideal of love. This is why everything exists in reciprocal
relationships. Minerals are based on the reciprocal relationship of
subject and object partners and so are atoms. Protons and
electrons also exist based on the reciprocal relationship of subject
and object partners. Without reciprocation they cannot continue
to exist. Without give and take action they cannot exist eternally.
Therefore, the universe is a world created in such a way that its
center can only be reached through human beings. (137-59,

There are many vast lakes in the world. In Alaska alone there are three million lakes more than twenty thousand pyung in area. If fish could be raised within such an area of twenty thousand pyung, it would support two hundred or even three hundred households. So, how many could be fed if there are three million lakes? If each lake is twenty thousand pyung, six hundred million people can be supported. Two times three is six – so six hundred million. That is why if we can make fish farms in lakes in Africa, it would provide a food supply for 650 million people. Then the food shortage would be relieved. Fish is much better for your health than beef or any other meat from land animals. Fish is easily digested and absorbed. Therefore, a time will come when people will not eat meat or beef, even if they are told to do so. (271-39, 1995.8.15)

Richard: A very important issue is solving the problem of hunger (starvation) throughout the world. This topic is close to Rev. Moon’s heart, and it should be something that we are working toward solving.

8500 children die every day from malnutrition worldwide. 165 million children experience stunting (below normal height for age) from malnutrition each year, which contributes to one half of these deaths. These deaths are entirely preventable.

Cheon Seong Gyeong 1188

As viewed from God’s original ideal of creation, the eldest son should come from God’s side and, of course, the second son should also come from God’s side. Due to the Fall, the position of the first son was taken by Satan, and the position of the second son went to God. This has to be made right. Thus, when we consider the story of Esau and Jacob in the Bible, Jacob united with his mother and received her help. He gave Esau the pottage of lentils and bread in exchange for the birthright of the first-born son. Until today, we could not understand why Bible history is the way it is. With the appearance of the Unification Church, its meaning was clarified for the first time. (134-304, 1985.8.16)

People seek love with each other—horizontal love, while God’s love is vertical love. If love is to be perfect, the horizontal and the vertical lines must be connected. (238:140, November 22, 1992)
