The Words of the Sun Myung Moon from 2012
Sun Myung Moon and Hyung Jin Moon April 20, 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 from the Sermons of the Rev. Moon. After the reading, she sang for Shin Pyeon Nim "곰 세마리" (Three Bears) and then Rev. Pyeong Rae Moon sang "돌아와요 부산항에." (Come Back to Busan) The following are some of Father's words.
"It is the True Parents of Heaven, Earth, and Humankind. Then comes the proclamation of the Substantial word of God. There are only two people, Father and Mother as the representatives of heaven, earth and humankind and they are settled with vertical noon-time alignment that casts no shadow (정오정착)."
"Who is the king of the birds that runs fast with two legs? ('타조 / Tajo: Ostrich.') 타조는 타고 여행될 수 있는 조상이야. (Ostrich means the ancestor that can travel riding on its legs.)"
"You know the word 혼 (Hon: soul), do you? What is the difference between 혼 (魂: soul) and 영인체 (靈人體: spirit self)?
(Katsumi: Then Father said the following, which I do not understand)
하나님의 혼을 모르는 것은 영인체의 그림자입니다. (It means something like: Don't you understand God's spirit body is the shadow of spirits.)
(To Dr. Peter Kim) Why are you smiling? You are thinking of quoting somewhere what I just said? Would you use my explanation while forgetting me who said it?
(Katsumi: I think what Father said to Dr. Kim relates to Father's recent repeated comment that the substance comes before the truth) "
"Yeosu is the old capital of Goguryeo, which was called '한성' (Hanseong).
(Katsumi: Hanseong had been geographically one of the three important cities of Goguryeo, which Shilla dynasty took over after the fall of Goguryeo. Nowadays, though it is not sure where the city had been, it is generally believed to have been in the Hwang Hae province in North Korea.)
The following is a part of the reflection of Dr. David Carlson on Father's speech given at the Cheong Shim Peace World Center on 3.1 HC. I couldn't agree more with him, and I would like to post it here again. I have been feeling the same thing in listening to Father's speeches but couldn't organize it in words like Dr. Carlson did below. It is worth keeping it in mind when listening to Father. -- Katsumi Kambashi -
"True Father does not speak in a linear, logical (i.e. Western) fashion. He speaks about one point (which has a whole constellation of points around it) and then perhaps from one of those peripheral points goes to another point. There is no "logical" connection but there is an intuitive, heartistic connection. If our heart is resonant with his heart, we can follow easily, perhaps, but if not, if we look for the "logic" then we can become frustrated. True Father's thinking and speech is centered only on heart. That is, perhaps, unique with the Messiah."
