The Words of the Kaufmann Family
May 5, 2002
I always pray to God that somehow all members can feel and know Father and Mother just as those who get to see them once in a while. It is frequently said that true closeness to Parents does not come from physical proximity, and that frequently distant members are closer to Parents then those who see them often. Also it has been said that being too close to Father and Mother can have the opposite effect in terms of having their eternal glory shrouded by the mundane reality of their day to day humanity.
In a certain way, if there is justice, this has to be true. Knowing True Parents cannot be dependent on physical proximity, if there is justice in the universe.
STILL the presence of True Parents so overwhelms me. I feel burdened and repentful that others don't have this chance, and also that I do not become more as gratitude for the privilege. I have tons of thoughts on this, but I'll stop here. I simply wish everyone could have the chance to be around Mother and Father. The presence of God in them is a thing of awe and wonder.
