Please Allow The Fallen Realm To Be Overcome By Your Heart Alone, Father

Beloved Father! Once again we long for the day which will realize the will you expressed after creating all the things of the universe. When we think about the existence of our sublime, precious Father, we, who know how low and inadequate humankind is, can not help but pursue all value and content which can become one with that lofty will.
And furthermore, when we think that the people on this earth are those who have fallen from the ideal world of God, we think that the responsibility to take hold of oneself and to be brought to the world of goodness does not lie with heaven, rather it lies with humankind itself.
Father! We have realized on our own that the position we are faced with is far too separated from the sublime majestic position where you stay at the center of the universe, and from you who are the lord of the ideal centered on love. Therefore, we know that in order to fill in this great distance a path of submission to the reasonable course of restoration which is so filled with grief lies before us. Our parents can not help us with going forward on this path, nor can we receive help from anyone else. Today as we realize thinking that we can arrive there only if we have earnest hearts centered on God alone and toiling hearts of the original nature which are not concerned about life or death, we Unification Church family members are sensing our awesome mission of having to expand that purpose from our own individual selves to the family, tribe, people, nation and world. When we think about the fact that from a position of being incomplete ourselves, we can not pursue the completion of the family, and from the position of an incomplete family, we can not pursue the completion of the nation or the world, we realize well that the situation humankind is in today is very pitiful.
We know the fact that the realm of the fall covers the whole like that and dominates all the realms of life. We also know that we need our own efforts and our own insights which can overcome and go beyond this. We need a new truth with is able to discover this, and we need the strength to overcome it, but we know that such strength does not arise from loving for the sake of oneself, but rather only by loving for the sake of God.
Father! We earnestly hope and desire that you will allow us to become children who can rush towards you from this place on our own with minds of love and with a life force that is strong and of good courage. Please remain with us forever through love and ages of blessings. We have prayed in the name of the True Parents. Amen.
