I aspire to the creation of a peaceful human society and a new God-centered culture for youth. Placing the young people of CARP in the vanguard, I promoted a worldwide movement for the realization of true love and true life.
CARP members and young leaders, let us march forward to create the true family that God has been seeking for so long and to construct a unified, peaceful world of God, arming ourselves with the Three Great Subject Thought of a true parent, a true teacher and a true owner through the privileges of youth, that are burning passion and wise reason. (234-245, 1992.08.23)
Youth organizations of the Communist Party known as Komsomol are found in all Russian universities. The offices of these organizations have made way for CARP. The Marx and Lenin Research Institute has become the PWPA office. From the viewpoint of national policy, Russia has had connections with America for generations. These developments are being driven by the conviction that henceforth the only ideology that can cope with the problems stemming from a change in the Russian system is the Unification Principle. (208-107, 1990.11.17)
Why did I establish a legislative and judicial association in America? Infringement of human rights is a serious problem. Standing at the forefront of seeking after truth, and in order to lead humanity on the true path to peace, I have to establish an upright judicial system. For that reason, I founded a legislative and judicial association. (125-304, 1983.03.29)
Man must in future explore the world of the sea and of the ocean. It is more difficult to live in midair. It is so much cheaper to safeguard the ocean while living there than it is to protect airspace. The sea is so intimate. (146-243, 1986.07.01)
The environment is always there to be assimilated, and is something that can naturally be connected to. As for the air, however, America has to concentrate its military forces on the air. Looking at the future world of peace, how wonderful it would be if investment in ocean development could be done with that kind of money. When the time comes for military defense to be phased out, where will the world be heading to? It is now time for the world to divert its interest to the ocean. That time will soon be at hand. (146-243, 1986.07.01)
In the new millennium, peninsular nations have to carry out important missions in the providence. Contributing merits and common experiences to world culture through the Federation of Peninsular Nations for World Peace, they have to fulfill the guiding role of realizing world peace.
I have not been teaching only about the way for humanity to live happily in a world of peace. Pioneering the way and founding various organizations to realize world peace, I have been fostering and largely supporting them. The Federation for World Peace (FWP), the Inter-Religious Federation for World Peace (IRFWP), the Women's Federation for World Peace (WFWP), the Youth Federation for World Peace (YFWP), the Students Federation for World Peace (SFWP), the Professors World Peace Academy (PWPA) and the Federations of Island Nations, Peninsular Nations and Continental Nations for World Peace are all established to fulfill this goal. Did I set up a soccer team because of an interest in sports? Sports are necessary to further peace and harmony. If a famous soccer team plays once in a competitive game, the whole world will watch. Boxing is an individual game, but soccer is a team game.
Soccer team members have to unite and harmonize into one. You must realize that peace will come in an environment free of conflicts and battles. Harmony will occur in that situation. When a soccer team steps onto the field of competition to meet another team, the players have to embrace each other more than their own lives and achieve unity.
Therefore a soccer team itself symbolizes harmony and unity. What is oneness? Peace is indispensable in the family, society, and nation, on Earth and in Heaven. If peace is not realized, there will not be unity.
What enabled our professional soccer team, Ilhwa Chunma, to win the Korean championship is that all the team members were harmonized and unified based on peace. Unification is accomplished based on peace. Victory can be won by an individual player first making peace within himself and then all the players unifying amongst themselves. People are united through harmony and peace.
All sports have a purpose to make harmony and unity. Thus, sports are connected to the path of world peace, which brings harmony and unity. Accordingly, we made sports the main event of WCSF (World Culture and Sports Festival). WCSF was begun in 1992, the one last year was the second, and the third event will be held in Washington D.C. in 1998. (276-112, 1996.02.11)
To make a priority of establishing a worldwide organization for the hobby industry is a way of hastening all fields, such as the financial world, in the direction of peace. Therefore, I have prepared projects related with the ocean for twenty years. April next year will see the 20th anniversary of the ocean providence. (252-210, 1993.12.30)
It is my greatest joy that the Little Angels, who are ambassadors of peace and friendship representing Korea, are to perform in the Soviet Union. I think that the performance of the Little Angels will be the best gift to the people of the Soviet Union, who love art very much. Our conference might be the only kind where people can come to a convention and, at the same time, enjoy beautiful music and delightful traditional Korean dance.
Children are the best ambassadors for peace and friendship because they practice true love. This was the very purpose for the establishment of the Little Angels in 1963. Since its founding, the Little Angels troupe has performed on many world tours delivering a message of peace and happiness. (201-214, 1990.04.11)
