The Words of the Sun Myung Moon from 2012
Sun Myung Moon March 1, 2012
Note: These notes are taken from a Peace TV video clip. They cannot be published as definitive texts and should never be used in the future as an "official" publication of True Father's words. However, they do provide a good idea of the "spirit" of the message. -- Rev. Katsumi Kambashi
Mrs. McDevitt read Father's speech from the Sermons of the Rev. Moon #43, "인연과 우리의 사명 (Tie and Our Mission)."
"One must become a husband or wife before becoming a parent. Before becoming a husband or wife, one must become brother or sister. You should know there should be a true sphere of victory of parents in order to assist and attend to God and establish God's kingship as the Creator. This is not the responsibility of somebody else. This is the responsibility of each of us, husband or wife."
"Like I said yesterday, three things are fundamental in life: temperature (온도 / 溫度), speed (속도 / 速度), and order (질서 / 秩序). The difference of east, west, south and north comes from the difference of the temperatures. The Five Oceans and the Six Continents also vary in temperature. They are different in speed too. They are different in order as well. In the Garden of Eden, the heartistic temperatures (심정적 온도 / 心情的 溫度) of Adam and Eve in front of God must be the same, and Lucifer should have had the same temperature. They must be the same in speed too. If God goes four kilometers in a minute, they must do the same. If God goes four kilometers in an hour, they must do the same. Also the order must be the same."
"Say 이목구비 (耳目口鼻: ears, eyes, mouth and nose). What comes first? ('Ears.') Why? When you trim the four corners of the Chinese character of ears (which is 耳), it becomes the Chinese character of eyes (which is 目). The ears are connected to the eyes. These are on the same line. You should know that the order of these words 이목구비 (耳目口鼻: ears, eyes, mouth and nose) had existed before the fall. The fact that our ancestors knew this order means that they knew there are east, west, north and south."
"East and west, north and south, which is bigger? The top presses from above, and the bottom pushes up from below, and therefore, east and west are bigger than north and south. Do you know this? The distance between two ears are longer than the length of one's face. That's why the globe horizontally turns around, which makes four seasons. Then the vertical and the horizontal, which comes first? 종횡 (縱橫: the vertical and the horizontal) is the word that had existed before the fall."
"My previous calligraphy was 천지부모 천주안식권 (The Cosmic Realm of the Safe Settlement of the Parents of Heaven and Earth), and it is now 천지인 참부모정착 (Firm Settlement of the True Parents of Heaven, Earth, and Humankind)."
"Which comes first, the line or angle? Which comes first, the circle or the center? (Nobody answers) I always speak about things simply but I do so in accordance with the formula of the heavenly law."
"In the old days, people thought the earth was flat. A flat surface can't have harmony (조화 / 調和)."
