The Words of the Sun Myung Moon from 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 titled "True Path of Life" from his speech book # 41.
"They will arrive in LA today (Feb. 6), and take a bus for 8 hours to get to Cedar city, Utah where they will hold the performance on Feb. 8. The best day for the next performance is the 11th, which is Saturday. It was amazing that although all the other major hotels in Las Vegas had been sold out, Caesars Palace was available for only that day. So we will have the performance at that hotel on the 11th.
Yesterday, I conveyed Father's direction to Dr. Pak, and he changed the space from 1,200 seats to 3,000 at the hotel accordingly. Rationally speaking, it is very difficult to change the size of an audience a couple of days prior to the performance day, but I strongly believe that nothing is impossible. True Parents are with us and this is the rally that heaven and earth are focused on, so I am determined to bring a great victory through this opportunity.
At the rally, we are planning to give 'peace medals' for 15 veterans who have been carefully selected through Dr. Pak and the committee. We will also present a gift for True Parents
We will provide a DVD which contains the video clips of the life of True Father and True Mother (one hour each in Korean, Japanese, and English, which was shown at the celebration of True Parents' Birth) to give to all the participants after the event."
"This rally will be a good opportunity for the Unification church to make a new start inside and outside," and asked all the participants to make the utmost efforts for the rally in Las Vegas.
Hyung Jin Nim performed martial arts in front of True Parents.
"Martial arts is the most rapidly growing sport in the world."
"Father said that world peace must be promoted through soccer and martial arts."
"Martial arts is a method that makes men peaceful by releasing their energy."
"I have been in public mission for the past three years and have never showed my performance on purpose, because I thought the young people might misunderstand it just thinking 'It's cool!.' Rather, I have been focused on educating how to find True Parents as 'my Messiahs and parents,' and the unification of mind and body.
But this time when I was with True Father at Geomundo, Father told me to do it and he liked it. Then he told me to continue to do it. (Laughter) So I do it with this explanation. The martial art itself is not the best way to fight.
True Father is the best performer who has subjugated Satan, and that's why I think we must be more focused on internal training. How to win without physical fight is more important. Physical strength will be deteriorating without fail and so we need to be more focused on obtaining the internal wisdom, mind-training and loving True Parents. But I personally love it and it is a big part of my life. So actually (by telling me to do the performance) Father liberated me in a sense. I tried to hide my feeling but Father said, "시범하라, 이 자식아!" (A leader, this bastard!) (Laughter). So, though I am still a little bit worried about the young people who see my performance, I am happy that Father liberated me on this."
