As I wandered through the five
oceans and the six continents, I preached
earnestly about the path of love. I have
sought to shine the light of love on all
people, who, living without love, are
like a desert. If the path people are ulti-
mately to follow will lead them to that
other world of love, the most important
thing for humanity must be the “love
beacon.” Only that beacon of love can
lead humanity to the original homeland.
(Blessed Family – 404)

The sea is a world treasure containing
two thirds of the world market of raw
materials. Don’t you think so? Are there
diamond mines in the ocean? There are
twice as many diamonds under the ocean
as there are on land. From the point of
view of my work of carrying out God’s
restoration providence based on His will
I estimate there are twice as many dia-
monds in the ocean. Furthermore, in
the sea we also find seaweed and fish and
this can all be used as food. The ocean
area covered by seaweed is about twice
as vast as the land mass. And the sup-
ply of fish is almost limitless. If I think
about these kinds of things then does it
surprise you that I am interested in fish?
Anyone who thinks about these things
is going to be much more interested in
the ocean than the land. So, we need to
catch fish and sell them and transport
the natural resources that we find in the
ocean. That is why we are seeking a lead-
ing position in each sector of the trans-
portation industry, on the land, in the
ocean, and in the air. (89-28, 1976.10.3)
Richard: Feeding all of the world’s people is a project very close to True Father, Rev. Moon’s heart.

The same is true of a society. Who are the successful people? One can become successful in one’s nation when one has faith in one’s nation. When one honors the state doctrine as one’s own, and appears with the spirit of governing the nation, one can become successful. Isn’t that true? The same principle is at work in a family. Those who have faith, hope and love in the family will inherit the family. Isn’t that true? Do you deny that?
When we examine history, what people are burning with faith in God? The Korean people have never heard about God and have not had clear revelations from prophets during their five-thousand-year history. Yet Koreans somehow have strong faith in Heaven. Whatever you may say, that is what I found.
It is a miracle that this people, this tiny nation in the eastern hemisphere, has survived for five thousand years and many waves of thought and beliefs. Probe into Korean history. Their history was marked by many dangerous invasions. Invaders devoured Korea before throwing the Koreans back out, over and over again. When they were thrown out, they were stripped to the bone. Nonetheless, the Korean people preserved some unknown source of strength flowing through their national spirit and awaited the one day of hope. Because of the hopeful national spirit which has moved this peninsula in the Far East, the people were able to continue their fight until now. Wouldn’t the Messiah come to a people who have demonstrated such a remarkable national spirit? That is what I think. You have to understand this.
Moreover, no people are more passionate than the Korean people. Korea has been called a nation of strong ethics. Both Confucianism and Buddhism have flourished in this nation. The same has been true for Christianity. However, Buddhism, Confucianism and Christianity, which claim to be religions of faith and hope, have completed their missions. What remains? There is a zeal exploding from deep within people’s hearts which can burn brilliantly for the worldwide ideal centering on the national spirit. Although young people may not understand this, older people know what I am talking about.
What made the people like this? Let us investigate their philosophical and religious history. No value can establish itself unless it first lays a foundation of reciprocity or comparison. Those who know will understand this. Without the positions of subject partner and object partner, there is no way to secure a system of values. If a nation were to emerge with a doctrine which can lead the world, only when a nation follows the leader and works in tandem with him to translate the ideals into reality can that nation become predominant in the world.
