The Prayers Of Reverend Sun Myung Moon - Volume Two: The Entreaty Volume
Please Let Us Go The Path Of Living For Others
Sun Myung Moon
January 24, 1971
Since we know that living for ourselves, for myself is always being an enemy in relation to the course of the providence of salvation, and living for others is the course which levels that path of all the difficulties and struggles which are always in front of us, please let us go the path of living for others.
If our spirit becomes exhausted that is not something we can resolve on our own. On the contrary please let us realize that if we live for others or sacrifice more because of being in a position to suffer more and to live for others, there is another path which can be pioneered as a course of reaction. And please let us realize that there is another path that can lead to you by increasing the level of precious loyalty and offering more devotion to you. We earnestly hope that you will allow us to understand that the problem is not in other people, it is in ourselves, in myself.
We know well that it is the principle of the real world that no matter how strongly a cold wind blows, if I prepare clothes for myself and wear them, that cold wind just blows by without affecting me, but if I don't have the ability to be able to prepare myself for that, due to that I become ill, and due to that I can be bent over. Accordingly in our lives today as well we will have to take on this principle and reform our lives and be able to determine the value which heaven is hoping for, which can give light to the course of our lives. Please let us realize that only then will we be able to become the sons and daughters who can make you happy.
We must understand the fact that having been excited sons and daughters who were happy in the past does not mean we will be happy sons and daughters today. We can be happier today than in the past. In order to become sons and daughters who can feel valuable stimulation it will not do unless we stand in a position where we can believe heaven, and look up to heaven, and consult directly with heaven from a position of being able to take on a more difficult, a loftier, a more valuable, a more responsible position. We earnestly hope and desire that you will allow us to become your sons and daughters who know that taking on a more important responsibility is an honor, that going a more difficult path of the cross than others is our pride, and that living a more serving life than others is a valuable life. We have prayed all these things in the name of the True Parents. Amen.
