If the son advises and teaches his parents to love their country so that they become patriots, and makes them a mother and father whom heaven remembers, is he a filial or unfilial son?
So, rather than a son who says to his parents, “Mom, Dad, don’t go out! Just rest at home.” he should say, “Mom, Dad, what are you doing? Please, let’s try together to find even one more person who can be a patriot, who can work for the unification of North and South Korea, who can work to save North Korea.” Then he makes them shed tears, blood and sweat. Then what would you think if the people in the neighborhood were to praise this achievement?
Would the parents say, “You scoundrel, you really made your mother and father’s life difficult, so at first we thought you were a bad boy. Yet we became successful and are praised by everyone. My! You really are a filial son.” Do you think the parents would say this, or would they say, “You are an unfilial son”? What do you think? (209-266, 1990.11.30)

Today, there are four billion people living on earth, but in the spirit world there are hundreds of billions of souls. The question is how this world and the spirit world, which we consider the subject, are connected. Are they connected through what we consider valuable on earth, such as material, knowledge or position? That cannot be it.
That is because the spirit world is a world that transcends the material world. It transcends the world of knowledge. Since it transcends time and space, it is a world where yesterday’s joy can become today’s, and today’s joy can become tomorrow’s.
In this light, that essential world does not move based on the things that we who live on earth today need or value. What is important is: what is the center of everything of value within life in the spirit world?

No one understands what the consequences of the Fall have been for this world. Only I understand it. For this reason, unless I set birthdays by the lunar calendar of the East, there won’t be a place where people can breathe on an eternal foundation of Sabbath rest. The level horizontal is born by breathing, alternately becoming larger and smaller.
A line is something that connects two entities. On the line that connects a subject and object partner, what does everything do to bring them closer to each other? What is it that pushes them in the direction of the center? You need to understand: the only thing capable of this is the force of true love. The force of true love.
When a man and woman are far apart, each puts himself or herself first, saying, “Man is number one,” or “Woman is number one.” Don’t you realize that you say this because you are fallen? You say, “I am a man; I am number one.” “I am a woman; I am number one.” Don’t you do that?
What are man and woman? The man can say that he is the best, but if he is alone, he cannot breathe. The woman if she is by herself also cannot breathe. The man cannot rise up if he is alone; the woman cannot rise up if she is alone. Yet when this is reversed, everything becomes possible. If one partner goes out, the other stays at home. Is what the partner at home does important? Inside and outside are both necessary. Left and right are both necessary. Continue reading “True Love Is the Center”
