The term, tong ban gyeokpa doesn’t
mean destruction. Some people might
look at that term and ask “Why do we
say gyeokpa? We should call it some-
thing like “tong ban assimilation” or
“tong ban liberation.” Some people may
say so, but still we must overturn things
and break them down. Why? Because
false love, false life, and false lineage
remain and are totally selfish. This is
what we must overturn and break down.
That’s why it is said that those who seek
to lose their life shall gain it, but those
who seek to gain their life shall lose it.
The members of your own family can
become your enemies. This is certain. If
you say you will follow this path, then
your mother and father may call you a
crazy child. (203-252, 1990.6.26)

From this moment on, you stand in
my stead as well as God’s. You should
follow wherever He and I go. On this
day, April 3, 1995, I make the New Hope
Farm Declaration. (268-296, 1995.4.3)
The Religious Person’s Attitude
Sun Myung Moon
March 29, 1959
Beloved Father, please allow us to know that the tear stains of the Father, who toiled to raise us in front of this nation without our knowing, are spread all over. Father, we have been disloyal children who could not make ties with Heaven, having been drawn into the realm of death, sorrow and lamentation. Yet we pray and wish that You will let this be the hour when we can attend You by allowing us to save our own original characters in awe and reverence in sight of the grace You have bestowed.
From the moment we realized there was a path the Father wanted us to go, we realized that the Father is going along the path of tears also; He is traveling the path of the cross with us. He is traveling the path of tribulation, the path of sorrow, and even the path of chains along with us. In addition, we know about the thorny path You have walked, treading the historical course, toiling behind Your beloved sons and daughters.
You have repeated the history of toil of which we have no knowledge to gather us today. We bow respectfully, picturing in our minds the Father who toiled in this manner. At the same time, we are deeply ashamed of ourselves. Father, we pray that You will captivate us with the impulses of Your heart. We were called because Heaven has a purpose and hope in us. Please allow us to know that the path of the cross which lies ahead does not originate with us.
Please allow the posterity of a thousand years from now to know the historical path of forming ties based on their ancestors’ effort. In this hour, we have the mind that can embrace limitless joy, limitless happiness, and limitless hope. The origin of that is not in us, nor in any human being. All has been initiated by and operated by Heaven. Beloved Father, I pray and wish that You allow us to be the sons and daughters who know and deeply treasure, in their minds and bodies, the longing for the grounds upon which Heaven operated and to shed tears clinging to this.
