The Words of the Yokoi Family
Sun Myung Moon, Kook Jin Moon, and Hyung Jin Moon, August 21, 2011
This Chung Pyung Workshop has been a life changing experience for me. Back at home, I have been feeling a lot of difficulties in my life of faith and in my family life. One problem in particular has been my relationship with my mother-in-law. I find that she is a very sweet lady but for some reason, I found it difficult to be around her. I would feel uncomfortable and even angry at her whenever I was around or even when I just think of her. At one point, it became difficult for me to even look at her eyes.
Being here in Chung Pyung, I was able to improve my life of faith. I quickly learned that if I truly loved God, then I would be able to treat everyone as my brothers and sisters, uncles and aunts, and mom and dads. I made conditions for me to overcome these difficulties I had with my mother-in-law.
After one particular Chanyang Session, I felt very clear on what I needed to do. I quickly called her to talk and apologize for being difficult with her. I felt no anger and no feeling of uncomfortable. I felt like a huge weight has been lifted off of me.
In the end, whether it was an evil spirit in me or not that made me feel this way towards her, I understand now how strong the love of God is and how important it is to keep up my life of faith. Thank you, God, True Parents, Heung Jin Nim and Dae Mo Nim and Hoon Mo Nim.
