The Words of the Oh Family
Sun Myung Moon and Hak Ja Han March 23, 2012
10.14 True Parents' Cosmic Blessing is the greatest grace of all, through which the Blessed Families are recognized as the original human beings before the fall, and are allowed to enter the "city of refuge" (Numbers chapter 35). The term, "city of refuge" itself explains that we entered into the era in which Satan cannot claim us. Those Blessed Families who will enter the city of refuge must establish the content of the Blessing. What is that content? This year's motto which was given following the 2009 motto teaches what is the most fundamental and most basic life content as the Blessed Family.
2009 motto was "The Era of Proclaiming the Victory of the Authority of Absolute Sexual Ethics, True Love, True Life, and True Lineage in the Realm of the Cosmic Sabbath of the Parents of Heaven and Earth". 2010 motto is "Mansei for oneness with True Parents' Pure Heart and with all their Victories in the Realm of the Cosmic Sabbath centered on True Love" This motto is understood as, "In the Realm of the Cosmic Sabbath filled with True Love, let us accomplish Total Victory with Pure Heart and say Mansei!"
"Parents of Heaven and Earth" is changed to "True Love" and "the Realm of the Cosmic Sabbath" stays the same.
Then, what is the meaning of "the Realm of the Cosmic Sabbath centered on True Love"? True Love here means the love of the Parents of Heaven, Earth and Humankind, which is the oneness of God's love and True Parents' love. Thus, it means, therefore, in the huge house of the Cosmos that is filled with love of the Parents of Heaven, Earth and Human, which is the love of God and True Parents, the realm of the Sabbath expands. As True Parents of Heaven, Earth and Humankind rest by True Love through vertical 8 stages and horizontal 8 stages – 64 stages, pure water ("Cheong Shim") will come out. The pure heart naturally originates and flows from the love of the True Parents of Heaven, Earth and Humankind.
The second point is that "Absolute Sex, Victory of the Realm of True Love, True Life and True Lineage" of 2009 motto was changed to "Cheong Shim Il, Man Seong Il (Pure heart and total victory)" in 2010 motto. True Parents once gave this calligraphy of "Cheong Shim Il, Man Seong Il" (Dec. 2, 1996)
What is the meaning of "Cheong Shim (pure heart)"? "Cheong Shim" means beautiful and pure heart like morning dew which has no dust. Father said, "Cheong Shim" is connected with the element of life and thus the dew begins to form itself. (Jan 2, 2010) Chinese character "Cheong" of "Cheong Shim" consists of "water" on its left side, and "lord" on its top, with "moon" supporting from the bottom.
"Cheong Shim" is the conscience (Yang Shim / Seng Shim) which is God's mind and which God had given to Adam and Eve before they had fallen. (May 13, 2004) "Cheong Shim" sometimes also means my vertical self which is connected to God through the lineage. (Feb. 1, 1998) "Cheong Shim" does not have selfish or self-centered desire, and is a mind pure as crystal which can bring the first step in bringing the reconciliation and unity between Cain and Abel. It also would provide the original starting point of the reconciliation and unity between man and woman. (May 13, 2004) "Cheong Shim" is a well-rounded mind which will bring peace. (Jan 2, 2010)
"Man Seong Il" means to bring victory 10,000 times, which actually means the total victory. The way of "Man Seong" is not to fight and win. It is to win through "Cheong Shim" and through the harmony and the unity. "Man Seong" which appears in the 2010 Motto emphasizes that we need to bring victory in everything by having "Cheong Shim". It means you go beyond the concept of evil by the concept of goodness, and bring total victory over everything by "Cheong Shim". Third, "Seongpo (means 'proclamation')" in 2009 Motto is switched with "Mansei"
We are the representative of the True Parents who succeeded in the victorious full powers of the whole, overall, all-powerful, and almighty. (Oct 15, 2009) The representative of the True Parents must resemble True Parents. They must do the True Parents' work. They must think the way True Parents rejoice, and they must speak only the words that True Parents would love. They must do only the work that would please True Parents. This was expressed in this year's motto as "Cheong Shim Il, Man Seong Il".
The secret of the success of True Parents is very simple. True Parents know God more than anybody. They know what is the way to make God happy. Therefore, they choose to speak only the words in that God would rejoice. Therefore, even though they don't ask God, "Please help me!" God would help them because He feels He wants to help. According to True Parents that was the reason for their success. (Mar. 14, 1997) Do you want "Man Seong (total victory)"? Then, please begin with "Cheong Shim" Then, God and True Parents will be with you.
1: The LORD said to Moses in the plains of Moab by the Jordan at Jericho,
2: "Command the people of Israel, that they give to the Levites, from the inheritance of their possession, cities to dwell in; and you shall give to the Levites pasture lands round about the cities.
3: The cities shall be theirs to dwell in, and their pasture lands shall be for their cattle and for their livestock and for all their beasts.
4: The pasture lands of the cities, which you shall give to the Levites, shall reach from the wall of the city outward a thousand cubits all round.
5: And you shall measure, outside the city, for the east side two thousand cubits, and for the south side two thousand cubits, and for the west side two thousand cubits, and for the north side two thousand cubits, the city being in the middle; this shall belong to them as pasture land for their cities.
6: The cities which you give to the Levites shall be the six cities of refuge, where you shall permit the manslayer to flee, and in addition to them you shall give forty-two cities.
7: All the cities which you give to the Levites shall be forty-eight, with their pasture lands.
8: And as for the cities which you shall give from the possession of the people of Israel, from the larger tribes you shall take many, and from the smaller tribes you shall take few; each, in proportion to the inheritance which it inherits, shall give of its cities to the Levites."
9: And the LORD said to Moses,
10: "Say to the people of Israel, When you cross the Jordan into the land of Canaan,
11: then you shall select cities to be cities of refuge for you, that the manslayer who kills any person without intent may flee there.
12: The cities shall be for you a refuge from the avenger, that the manslayer may not die until he stands before the congregation for judgment.
13: And the cities which you give shall be your six cities of refuge.
14: You shall give three cities beyond the Jordan, and three cities in the land of Canaan, to be cities of refuge.
15: These six cities shall be for refuge for the people of Israel, and for the stranger and for the sojourner among them, that any one who kills any person without intent may flee there.
16: "But if he struck him down with an instrument of iron, so that he died, he is a murderer; the murderer shall be put to death.
17: And if he struck him down with a stone in the hand, by which a man may die, and he died, he is a murderer; the murderer shall be put to death.
18: Or if he struck him down with a weapon of wood in the hand, by which a man may die, and he died, he is a murderer; the murderer shall be put to death.
19: The avenger of blood shall himself put the murderer to death; when he meets him, he shall put him to death.
20: And if he stabbed him from hatred, or hurled at him, lying in wait, so that he died,
21: or in enmity struck him down with his hand, so that he died, then he who struck the blow shall be put to death; he is a murderer; the avenger of blood shall put the murderer to death, when he meets him.
22: "But if he stabbed him suddenly without enmity, or hurled anything on him without lying in wait,
23: or used a stone, by which a man may die, and without seeing him cast it upon him, so that he died, though he was not his enemy, and did not seek his harm;
24: then the congregation shall judge between the manslayer and the avenger of blood, in accordance with these ordinances;
25: and the congregation shall rescue the manslayer from the hand of the avenger of blood, and the congregation shall restore him to his city of refuge, to which he had fled, and he shall live in it until the death of the high priest who was anointed with the holy oil.
26: But if the manslayer shall at any time go beyond the bounds of his city of refuge to which he fled,
27: and the avenger of blood finds him outside the bounds of his city of refuge, and the avenger of blood slays the manslayer, he shall not be guilty of blood.
28: For the man must remain in his city of refuge until the death of the high priest; but after the death of the high priest the manslayer may return to the land of his possession.
29: "And these things shall be for a statute and ordinance to you throughout your generations in all your dwellings.
30: If any one kills a person, the murderer shall be put to death on the evidence of witnesses; but no person shall be put to death on the testimony of one witness.
31: Moreover you shall accept no ransom for the life of a murderer, who is guilty of death; but he shall be put to death.
32: And you shall accept no ransom for him who has fled to his city of refuge, that he may return to dwell in the land before the death of the high priest.
33: You shall not thus pollute the land in which you live; for blood pollutes the land, and no expiation can be made for the land, for the blood that is shed in it, except by the blood of him who shed it.
34: You shall not defile the land in which you live, in the midst of which I dwell; for I the LORD dwell in the midst of the people of Israel."
