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
Many Japanese members participated that day. The following are some of Father's words during the celebration.
"As of now, you have lived as you like thinking 'I don't relate to Father's prayer and I don't understand it.' At what occasion have you been filled with emotion (by listening to my prayer)? The person sitting here (Father himself) has been living as if he was choked with the prayers. I have lived that way. The words 'True Parents' are not easy for me.
Three years ago in Las Vegas, I wrote '天地人참父母 定着 (천지인참부모 정착 / Firm Settlement of the True Parents of Heaven, Earth and Humankind).' (Then indicating his calligraphy which later became the motto of 2011) Nobody knows what it means. No one can interpret it even if they know Chinese characters well. Without me, these words would have been dead.
When I see all of you through (spiritual) rock crystal, everyone is different. Are you united with each other or not? Do you have your ladders that bring you to Heaven? If the highest building in Japan has 70 floors, to go to Heaven is like going through 7 million, 7 trillion floors or more. 천지인참부모 정착 실체말씀 선포 천주대회 (Cosmic Assembly for the Proclamation of the Firm Settlement of the True Parents of Heaven, Earth, and Humankind and the Substantial Word of God). You just came here today with pleasure, but in order for me to receive 3.16 H.C., I have been so restless."
"Do you know when I encountered Jesus? It was in February when I was 17 years old by Korean count. It is not that the Second Messiah can come to appear when he wants."
"In Japan it is Shizuoka province that has the most complicated current in the ocean centering on Mt. Fuji. How high is it? ('It is 3,776 meters high.') How many islands does Japan consist of? ('There are four major islands.') Three thousand years ago, was there the name Hokkaido (北海道) (which is one of the four)? ('There wasn't')
(Katsumi: In Japan administratively there are 43 provinces and the Chinese character for 'province' is 県 / Ken. Then there are three other regions in Japan: Tokyo, Kyoto and Hokkaido. Tokyo is called Tokyoto with 都, Kyoto is called Kyotowho with 府, and Hokkaido with 道. In Korea the world 'province' is 道 / do, and therefore, what Father implied here is that the area of Hokkaido had belonged to Korea.)
Do you know Kojiki (古事記：A Record of Ancient Matters, a record of Japanese ancient myths and history)? I know it very well. When I was at high school, I had read textbooks of a graduate school in Japan."
"Do you know the song of the Second Messiah? It is '동산의 노래 (Song of the Garden)'."
"I am different from ordinary people. I can hear the absolute sound (절대음 / 絶對音). Even while I am sitting here, I can say (to anyone who is dozing) 'You are dozing, aren't you?' How can I know it?"
Mrs. McDevitt sang "칠갑산" (Chilgapsan) and Father sang together with her. The Japanese male choir team from Kyoto sang "Space Warship Yamato," and when they were singing their next song "上を向いて歩こう" (which is known in the Western world as 'The Sukiyaki Song'), Father said "(Sing in) Korean!" and then said "Stop." (Father stopped Japanese choir's singing)
Mother sang "산유화" and Father joined her in singing. After her song, she told all the Korean brothers to stand up and sing "진짜 사나이." (Real Man) After their song, Father sang "마음의 자유천지." (Freedom of the mind of heaven and earth) Rev. Then Rev. Yang conducted Eog Mansei, which concluded the meeting.
